It’s probably old news to some but a colleague recently pointed me in the direction of the Zacuto “Great Camera Shootout 2010”.
This fascinating web series pits the recent crop of Canon DSLR Cameras against “real” Cinema and HD Video Cameras. The results are truly remarkable and leave me feeling quite happy about my investment in a Canon 550D/T2i although, this model only appears in the third “webisode” (along with a little Eurovision magic..!). The series was such a success that it was nominated for, and won, an emmy!
In addition, they have also released the first episode of the “Great Camera Shootout 2011”, which obviously has a bigger budget. This starts to show the limitations of the DSLRs but also demonstrates where they shine (in low light conditions). It’s maybe a little too much of a geek-out for some mind you 😉
