Canon C100 vs. Canon 5D mk3
« on: November 28, 2012, 05:31:27 PM »

trying to justify a purchase of the c100 but wondering how it compares to my 5Dmk3? I would not be using an external recorder with the c100 btw. Wondering how they would compare in DR, resolution, gradability, and general file IQ. Anyone use both yet?

You can download the test and the poster has links to download the original files.

the onboard ND and XLR IMO put the C100 in another class completely..

i would not go near the 5d3 in the C100 era

I prefer the FS100 over the C100, but use the C300 for corporate work.

Can you explain why?

I would think that the canon colours are a little better and the onboard ND super handy

(I own Fs100 BTW!)

Sure, it's cheaper! The images look good, and I see nothing in the image of the C100 worth the extra price. ND filters for $2,500? In return I get 60 fps and the phenomenal E mount.

I don't like the look of the C300. DR I don't care about, if at the end it still looks like video. And I shoot with L zooms and Zeiss CP2 primes. The ergonomics suck. Why do I use it then? Because I only have to pay about $180 per day for everything! My lighting bills are lower and I get a great codec for native editing.

If it's a choice between the 5D and C100, I'd choose the latter if budget isn't an issue.
