we are cinema5D
The leading online platform for camera and filmmaking technology, news, tests and reviews.
Based in Vienna, cinema5D was founded in 2008 by Sebastian Wöber as a forum for discussion relating to DSLR Cinematography and the techniques and technologies used by modern cinematographers.
In 2012, Sebastian teamed up with Nino Leitner and Johnnie Behiri, allowing the site to provide insights and opinions from three experienced filmmakers, each with their own shooting style, equipment preference and production experience. Their combined expertise in the industry has allowed cinema5D to flourish into a highly successful and much-loved outlet of news, advice, and reviews for both amateur and professional filmmakers.
Today our team is 11-strong. With professional filmmakers, tech gurus, and writers constantly producing a stream of top quality content. It is to an organized and creative editorial system that we owe our consistent growth.
cinema5D differentiates itself from other sites by ensuring that its readers are the primary focus; the audience is central to everything that the site publishes and that will always be the case.
In essence, cinema5D is a community.
Business Model & Ethics
Making reviews and a quality information website like this is an incredible amount of work. All three of us are shooting professionals, and time we dedicate to shooting reviews is taken away from paid work. That’s the dilemma and the reason why most reviewers and bloggers (who are paid shooters in real life) can’t sustain to make camera reviews on a regular basis.
Our business model is based on traffic, selected advertising and working together with companies we trust and recommend. Thanks to our sponsors B&H and CVP, leading camera equipment retailers, we are completely independent from camera manufacturers in our reviews. We will always share our honest, unbiased opinion on cameras & accessories and won’t hold back.
We need you
Cinema5D is nothing without its audience. We are constantly improving the site and it’s a labor of love for everyone involved. Please do not hesitate to give us feedback on our work – either as comments on individual posts or direct contact (e-mail above).
