Out of left field in the 1″ inch compact camera category the replacement of the RX100 II, the new Sony DSC RX100 III has impressive video specs for such a small pocketable camera.
For starters it shoots regular 1080p at 60p at 50 Mbps in XAVC S or MP4 and or AVHD 2.0 formats. Higher quality than many pro SLRs. Further along the spec list it allows for a 120fps 720 HD mode at also 50 Mbps in the same format selection.→ Continue Reading Full Post ←
While we test the Panasonic Lumix GH4 slow motion mode we have come across the fact that the 96fps mode is actually better than expected at above 720p resolution. Many claims suggested that it was just 720 up-resed to 1080p and leave it at that.
We have received out GH4 and will have some slow mo samples and final image quality analysis soon.
While these parodies have gotten quite a few billion views over the years we at HSC thought the GH4 slow motion mode and features needed one video of it’s own. Make sure you turn on CC (Close Captioning) So you can read the lines. in the mean time…Enjoy!
Back in 2012 it seemed that with the advent of the Lumix LX7 with its 720p 120fps video mode it was only a matter of time for even stronger high resolutions in semi professional compact cameras. For some reason or another the LX8 has not come out to replace the LX7 and it is probably still the best 720p 120fps camera for the price available. It is very high quality for a compact camera image with a 1/1.7″ sensor; even with mild aliasing it is still one of the more professional images out there.
The LX7 will become two years old this July and it is already becoming really scarce on availability. That it still retains the 6th spot in our slow motion affordable camera guide would give you some indication of its quality. It wont give you the large sensor look but it will let you have a very good camera with a slow motion function that seems just too good for a camera with these specs. It wont do higher frame rates at lower resolutions but it will also do 1080p at 60fps with very good quality.→ Continue Reading Full Post ←
