Canon 5DMKIII and Nikon D800 Duel Out Video – Warning: Adult Content

Warning: Parental Guidance. Violence and nude.

The best comparison video made to-date in my opinion, funny as hell. A must watch video this Easter. Biased? a bit.. find out yourself.

A Look at the Panasonic GH2 42Mbit AVCHD 1080/24p Video Hack

Vitality just released the first hack for the Panasonic GH2 which enables high bitrate AVCHD in 1080/24p cinema mode. Initial reviews on the hack from the guys over at EOSHD.com indicates that -

  • Noise now has a lovely film like fine grain, much more organic and less electronic looking
  • Noise smears far less detail
  • Low light performance is just better all round
  • Less compression appears to have helped with banding on gradated tones, looks closer to 10bit than 8bit!
  • Significantly better than the high bitrate MJPEG mode especially in low light
  • Colour seems improved, I am getting some beautifully rich tones out of it
  • Detail has increased and is much more solid looking, even with heavy camera movement

Check out more in the video or this link for more on the hack and instructions to apply the hack.
