Dave Dougdale (learningdslrvideo.com) has been working on a series of very in-depth comparisons between the 5D mark III and the Nikon D800, the two cameras that mark the new generation of HDSLR.
Dave looks at these cameras from an amateur point of view yet he does his tests uniquely in-depth and careful which makes it nice to watch and reveals some things other, too technically oriented and “professional” people might overlook.
I won’t steal the surprise and won’t reveal which camera Dave prefers, but this review certainly shows that both have their strengths and weaknesses that should be considered before making a buying decision on a new HDSLR.
Dave forwarded this very well done funny video he made about the mark 3 buzz.
From Dave Dougdale’s website:
Chase Jarvis, Shane Hurlbut, Philip Bloom and Vincent LaForet have awesome blogs, if you are not already following these industry leaders you should definitely start soon.
I sent all of them emails days before I released this video to see if it was OK to use their footage and I enjoyed Philip Bloom’s response of, “Nice job Dave! Toilet is other way…”.
It’s my guess that Canon will announce the new 5D Mark III on Oct. 26 in NYC. Or perhaps Canon will release it at the Hollywood effect on Nov. 3.
Rumor has it that there will not be a 5D mark III as of this year, but instead an EOS 1D is expected (tomorrow Oct 18th) and a Canon large sensor video camera by Nov 3rd.
Dave Dugdale from learningdslrvideo.com brings us a very nice Canon camera comparison once again. This time around he compares the 5D mark2 allstar hdslr camera to the 3 times more affordable Canon T2i (550D).
So can the 5D’s video mode justify it’s price over the T2i? Dave doesn’t think so.
What do you think?
