questech: i don't doubt there's more noise, but for me, the gains in other areas are worth it. and for the most part, in well lit scenes at mid to low iso's, the difference to the average person is negligible. for doing comparison shopping though, for the price range i don't think you can go wrong with the gh2. especially now that the gh3 is out and gh2 prices are dropping

This was shot with the 5d

 

 

Absolutely astounding. Doesn't get more cinematic than that. It's awesome how people in the Reduser forum were fooled into thinking it was film until the colourist herself confirmed that it was 5d.

This is a great example that equipment is probably the least factor in the mix.  Any of these great cameras we speak about here could get the same results; it's the director and the production team, and the great actors and settings that support a great story (script) that makes a work truly cinematic.

 

If you substituted a GH2, an AF100, FS100, BlackMagicCam, Red... the average audience would never be able to tell the difference (unless blowing it up on a gigantic screen of course) because they would be to enthralled with the action and the beautiful scenery and the story.

 

Now if you took the best operator and a great 35mm film camera and put him in a grey/beige training room with no light other than the overhead fluorescents and limited space to move the camera and he had to shoot a very boring speaker describing a very dry, overly technical issue that the audience doesn't care about... and it will look like @#$%*&

 

This is a beautiful piece!

Good colour grading is extremely important to achieve a good look, both on digital and film, and most DSLR footage around hasn't been professionally graded. Plugins like Magic Bullet get you somewhere fast, but still a long way from proper color grading by an experienced colorist. This video is a good example.
