5Dmk2/7D lens comparison test

This is a short test with the tripod in the same spot switching between prime lenses to show how the crop affects the 7D. The subject, ace stand in Chris Clement, was roughly five feet from the camera. This isn't meant to be an aesthetic test to show the difference in image quality between the two cameras. It's a down and dirty field guide for myself and the other shooters we work with so we can quickly figure what lens we want to use on each camera.

We go from 20mm all the way to 100mm with a Lensbaby composer thrown in at the very end.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark II killer? Recent video from the Panasonic AG-AF100

Posted on 21. Oct, 2010 by planetMitch in 5D mk ii, Vendors

We haven’t yet talked much about the newer cameras coming that are going to attempt to be Canon EOS 5D Mark II (reviews) killers, but that’s about to change because there are now several videos out showing off video from the Panasonic AG-AF100 (also called the AG-AF101 for the PAL version). It will be important to learn about these new cameras as there will be lots of debate about how they compare to the Canon HDSLRs as well as the Nikons as the HDSLR revolution continues.
The first video that has gotten a bunch of attention is this one from crews.tv who have said this about the Panasonic AG-AF100: “here at CREWS.TV we are beginning to think it won’t be a gentle shower that spoils the DSLR fun – it’s going to hose down.” So there you go, some people are calling this $5000 AF100 4/3″ video camera an HDSLR killer… but is it?
For this posting, we chose a more efficient process.

- Import AVC-Intra 100 P2 media via Final Cut Pro 7 Log & Transfer.
- On import transcode to ProResHQ quicktimes.
- Edit in a ProResHQ 1920x1080 sequence.
- Export Master Quicktime same as source.
- Compress with Apple Compressor.
- 1920x1080. H264. Quality - Full. Keyframes - All. Frame Rate - 25.
- Upload 1.54Gig Quicktime to Vimeo.
