Mega 4k shootout

The guys over at 4kshooters.net have a great couple of blog posts (confusingly called pt 1 and pt 3!) where they compare most of the major cameras used to shoot 4k.

  • Arri Alexa XT
  • Red Dragon
  • Red Epic
  • Sony F55
  • C500 i 1DC
  • Sony FS700
  • Blackmagic 4K
  • Blackmagic Pocket
  • Kineraw Mini
  • Lumix GH4
  • Canon 5d Mark3
  • Lenses Carl Zeiss CP2

Obviously these tests, and all tests, need to be taken with a grain of salt as try as they might there will be differences in the testing apparatus and of course there is a lot of personal preference involved too. But they are a great place to start.

Part 1:

Part 3:

Update:

Turns out these tests weren’t done by 4k Shooters.net, as Tomasz points out in the comment below.

  1. Why is it confusing? Part I, II & III are the parts of the Videos – you have 3 videos so far (There will be more). The first is the riddle, the second is the answer for the riddle and thirst one is footage without grading. I think it is very clear 🙂
    These videos where not prepared by 4K shooters. You wrote: “The guys over at 4kshooters.net have a great couple of blog posts where they compare most of the major cameras used to shoot 4k”. It was prepared by Tomasz Wolski & Szymon Lenkowski PSC for FilmPRO magazine (www.filmpro.com.pl) & FILM CYFROWY portal (www.filmcyfrowy.net) under the auspices of The Polish Society of Cinematographers PSC. 4Kshooter just share these videos and their thoughts. Please correct this description. Thank you.
