Zacuto has done it again, their Emmy award winning documentary series The Great Camera Shootout is here once more. This time they have upped the ante, testing a whole range of single chip cameras including DSLRs, RED MX, Film (for comparison) and many more. This is the most comprehensive camera test we have seen to date, and it covers a wide range of shooting situations to see how well each camera handles difficult shots. The test is not a competition to see which camera is the best camera out there, but rather to highlight the pros and cons of each so that we can make the best decisions with lighting and choice of camera for each project.
”In the most scientific camera comparison to date, “The Great Camera Shootout 2011: a documentary of the Single Chip Camera Evaluation (SCCE)” premieres with Episode 1: “The Tipping Point.” The first episode of the 3-part web series examines three SCCE Tests: The Dynamic Range Test, The Under Exposure Test and The Over Exposure Test.”
