In the last few weeks the already large number of options for filmmakers have been shaken up. Current cameras all seem to fall into different niches.
There are the depth of field specialists – 5D Mark III and D800 with full frame sensors. There are the resolution and raw codec specialists the Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera and Red Scarlet. There’s the slow mo specialist the Sony FS700 and my personal favourite all-rounders the GH2 and FS100 which just keep getting better with firmware updates (the FS100 is now a world cam with latest one from Sony).
What happens next will be a fascinating fight. EOSHD rounds up the contenders.
