In partnership with the new team at cinema5D, we present their latest side by side comparison of the Sony F55 & Canon EOS 1D C at 4k.

There’s an obvious difference in sharpness (in fact, the team thought it might need some softening in post it was so sharp), but is that worth triple the price? Have a look at the cinema5D test below and post your comments in the forum!


Sony F55 & Canon 1DC – 4K side by side

Snip from the cinema5D team

please read the whole story

cinema5D had a chance to test the newSony F55, Sony’s new flagship 4K cinema camera. As a reference we used Canon’s most advanced HDSLR.

The F55 is an interesting camera, because it is one that ticks more boxes than any other camera over the past few years – the range of resolutions, frame rates, codecs as well as the ergonomics are unprecedented. Now it’s down to actually using it to make a judgement call.

We wanted to know how the camera performs in a normal sooting environment and took the Canon EOS 1DC 4K HDSLR with us for comparison. Some interesting conclusions can be drawn here, things you might consider if you plan on shooting with either of these cameras or would just like to see what to expect.
