Fuji X Pro 2 video quality a huge step up – hands on with the final hardware, pre-production firmware

January 22, 2016 Andrew Reid (EOSHD)

Download original files here (note: pre-production firmware). I am really pleased to say the video quality of the X Pro 2 is seriously impressive. It’s not 4K but it’s enormously satisfying, sharp and detailed. What’s great is that now we can finally shoot moving images with Fuji’s superb film-like colour science, without having to worry about image quality.

Canon 5D Mark IV “will be 1080p” with Canon LOG

April 14, 2015 Andrew Reid (EOSHD)

I received an email from a NAB show visitor today who had spoken off the record to Canon and was told the company believes a 4K 5D Mark IV would completely overshadow the recently released C100 Mark II and so wouldn’t happen, but that Canon LOG would likely go into the camera to allow shot-matching with the XC10. So to segment specs based on price, Canon is allegedly sticking to 1080p on future DSLRs. The exception is the 4K XC10 which isn’t a competitor to the C100 Mark II or C300 Mark II as it features a tiny 1″ sensor and fixed camcorder-style zoom lens by comparison.

Samsung NX1 vs Canon C300 (image quality)

February 11, 2015 Andrew Reid (EOSHD)

The Canon C300 (currently reduced to $11,500) was the $15,000 stalwart of the professional videographer, only recently did it have a compelling rival – the Sony FS7. The Samsung NX1 is essentially a cutting edge 4K Super 35mm sensor in a mirrorless camera, recently given a video oriented firmware update which improves dynamic range and the available image profiles. I was curious to see how the images from these cameras compared and I put my Canon 1D C into the mix as well.

Nikon D810 video quality leapfrogs Canon 5D Mark III

September 24, 2014 Andrew Reid (EOSHD)

The D810 now shoots better quality 1080p out of the box than the 5D Mark III. It isn’t 4K or raw but it’s good. In fact Nikon are now providing better image quality than Canon across the range in video mode. Beginning with the D3300 and D5300 which provide a better APS-C image than the 7D Mark II with less moire, Nikon have taken the same improvement to image quality and applied it to the D800’s successor, the D810.
