Having used both, BMCC definitely has the edge on 5D RAW when it comes to DR (unless you're using the dual gain hack, in which case they're neck to neck), but overall I think 5D RAW looks much more pleasing. I did extensive tests, the 5D had more recoverable dynamic range in every single test: high contrast daylight, streetlight, low key light etc. And no I'm not talking about dual ISO mode, it has too much aliasing to make it usable for video. How you process the CDNG files in post is the key. I think it comes down to the difference between a high quality full frame sensor designed specifically for professional photographic use vs an S16 sensor designed for industrial applications. And yeah the 5D color is much better, it's less noisy, and it has little more resolution. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
