Lens Test w/ Zeiss ZE and CP2′s, Canon L Series and Leica R Glass

Shane Hurlbut has posted a lens test on his blog. The video is locked to the blog so you will have to click here to check it out.

We have been using Canon, Leica, and Zeiss lenses but haven’t had the chance to compare them all side by side. Shane saw this as a good learning exercise and asked us to put together a lens test. We used 18 lenses, lit the scenes with our home depot lighting kit, and spent a day shooting four scenarios to compare the aesthetics between the lenses for video. We kept our settings consistent between the lenses and here are our results. Take them with a grain of salt as it’s not a definitive test but more of a practical observation.

Episode 3, It’s Not So Black & White, completes the three part Great Camera Shootout 2011 series but also has an unexpected announcement that will leave you salivating for more! In this episode, the cameras are tested on motion artifacts, color and skin tone. The tests were administered by Robert Primes, ASC and conducted as an unbiased test through the SCCE (Single Chip Camera Evaluation). Some updates to certain cameras such as “S Log” on the Sony F3 and “CineStyle” for the Canon cameras were not available at the time of these tests.

CANON 5D MKII VS. IPHONE 4S VIDEO TEST

iPhone 4S / Canon 5d MKII Side by Side Comparison from Robino Films on Vimeo.

Here’s a “fair” test between the iPhone 4S and the Canon 5D MK II. I made a little rig that allowed me to shoot both cameras at the same time side by side. All scenes are perfectly synced together so you can pause and scrutinize the frames! See photo of the makeshift rig in the photo area.
