5d_vs_f3_v2

Now for all of those 5D enthusiasts out there this is of special interest. How does the Canon 5D Mk II measure up against the new Sony F3? Thanks to fxguide.com for providing the link. Find out more after the break.

In this test, both cameras were attached to the same tripod locked together – and then panned over the same technical background. The results show the F3 recording a considerably better rolling shutter and the benefit of the F3 not line skipping. The 5D – while having a very high resolution sensor – reduces this image to 1920×1080 in a very abrupt way. So while the larger sensor gives the cinematographer a shallower depth of field, – the poorer technical down res-ing produces some really unwelcome artifacts.

Of course, the 5D does manage to produce good shots every day around the world. The intention here is is to highlight the technical issues and allow the cinematographer to shoot knowing the issues and the risks.
