这也许是第一例关于最近很火的这3台大尺寸传感器摄像机的对比，by Philip Bloom。
Philip Bloom声明了，这个对比是他自己在Suresh Kara的帮助下完成的。他们尽力做到准确，但也避免不了异常。拍摄在“真实世界”而不是在工作室。无论佳能、索尼还是松下都没有给他们好处。只是索尼提供了FS100，也只是希望得到他的意见。
This comparison has be done by myself and with the help of Suresh Kara from Documovie.co.uk for fun. We have tried be as accurate as possible but there will always be anomalies due to the shoot being conducted in the “real world” not in a studio. Do not treat anything in here as gospel. We don’t therefore neither should you!
Neither Canon, Sony or Panasonic have paid us any money for this. Sony did supply me with the FS100 to check out but no money exchanged hands, they simply wanted my opinion on it.
This was done in our own free time to give people more information about these new camcorders. Both myself and Suresh are AF101 owners and have been very curious how the new FS100 compares. I am also a recent Sony F3 owner. This is not a Zacuto shootout or anything similar. It is primarily about camera operation and features with a few shots thrown in to compare. I am coming at this from a cameraman’s point of view as to what it is like to shoot with this.
Of course the temptation to obsess over the difference in each image is strong, resist it. Sure, do that with the Zacuto shoot out but not this. There are far too many anomalies for that. Even my first low light test I screwed the AF settings up and had to reshoot it. This was done for fun and to give more information to people out there like myself and Suresh. Never buy a camera based upon one person’s opinion. Always try it out first, especially if you are spending thousands!
This is nothing like the upcoming Zacuto shootout which is coming out in June. For starters I am looking at just 3 cameras and focusing much more on features and operation than just the image. The Zacuto Shootout when it comes out will be fantastic and perfect for people to really obsess over images!
So myself and Suresh Kara from Documovie.co.uk made this little comparison video as a “real world” how these cameras operate in the field test with some image comparison.
It’s split into two parts. The shooting is part 1 and my thoughts and overview are in part 2. Part two will be out tomorrow…Both together function not just as a comparison but as a review of each camera going in depth into what they have to offer.
Do check out my earlier blog with some bits of pieces on there and some links to downloadable pro res lt files!!
I will be doing a separate blog on the comparison between stuff recorded on the Atomos Ninja versus in camera at a later date.
Thanks to Kessler Crane, Rule Boston Camera, Marshall Monitors, Atomos, MTF services, Phil Arntz, Arnie Bloom and Sony Europe.
The majority of this was shot with the AF101 apart from the opening introduction which was on the F3. Part 2 has lots of shots from the Canon XA10 as cutaways.
