It's not really zacuto doing the comparison, but rather the documentary presented by zacuto. It looks to be a 3-part series, with one part a month. Interesting to see the Canons and D7K versus the much, much, much more expensive cameras. It's ~26 minutes, worth your time. http://www.zacuto.com …shootout-2011/episode-one (external link)

Will bump this thread when pt 2 and 3 come out.

agreed, really anxious about the motion. The problem with single-chip sensors is rolling shutter, in a big way.

Yeah its too bad they didn't put a hacked Lumix GH1 or GH2 into the mix considering the unique sensor design.

That would be very interesting to see, but I didn't get the feeling they were going to go with a sensor any smaller than APS-C.

VERY cool to see!

For their price point, these little DSLRs are well worth it! :)

Part 2 can be generally summed up as:

1) DSLR's suck
2) The Arri Alexa is king of all cameras

Im not sure what that Arri goes for, but that RED sure give it a run for its money! Its very impressive.

Its sad that Canon only gave us H.264 and 4:2:0 and no other data stream out. Those are the biggest things holding these cameras back in the video/film world. However, the fact that these camera bodies can and are even being compared to cameras of that caliber is in and of itself extremely impressive! They are a fraction of the cost and yet still VERY useable for cinematography. Its pretty cool and makes me extremely anxious for the 5D3!

The Arri is like 80,000 dollars. More expensive than both Red One and Red Epic.

Thats what I assumed, and like I said, the RED IMO is right up there with it, especially for the price point.
