Red shooter Ryan Lightbourn has been shooting with the Red Scarlet-X and raw 5D Mark III on the same production. His aerial shots reveal very little difference between the cameras but also some striking observations regarding the 5D Mark III’s raw prowess.
David Cole of BeamPath (3D rig builders) kindly shot this footage. This comparison is just for fun. This is for informational purposes to show what the GH2 looks like with this particular scene, against a $10,000 digital cinema camera. I have set the video to stream in 1080p if you full screen it, but for best results download the original and play it back on the best display you have available.
David Cole of 3D rig builders Beampath have a new 3D rig based on the Panasonic GH2 and RED Scarlet, which has also given him an excellent excuse to put the GH2 and Scarlet into battle. Says David “I gotta say that the hacked GH2 should not be embarrassed to be on the same bar”.
How exactly does the Scarlet and GH2 compare? EOSHD pixels peeps…
