Slow Motion Shoot Out By EOSHD!

Slow Motion Shoot Out EOSHD

Andrew Reid the filmmaker and video editor that runs the EOSHD camera/video blog has made a very good test comparing most of the current mirrorless and DSLR cameras that shoot high frame rates at 120fps.  This is not only a hard test to do because you need all of the gear but you also have to analyze the results based on per pixel quality, detail retention, dynamic range, and color information.

The test footage is easy to follow and will really help you in deciding which camera is better in slow motion. The results help level the playing field between these cameras and lets you compare the performance vs price.  We wish the test included the new Sony a9 Mirrorless camera which we know delivers superb image quality at 120fps.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←

Slow Motion Videos Of The Week Jan 20th 2017!

Slow Motion Videos Of The Week

After the few camera announcements at CES that have a slow motion component there is little on the hardware side until CP+ Expo in Japan on Thursday, February 23 to Sunday, February 26, 2017.   Fuji Just announced a few cameras but the maximum frame rate on those is 60fps 1080p so we really have no interest in covering them at HSC. Our coverage starts at 720p 120fps and up.

However there is a lot of new slow motion footage on the web lately and we really have to marvel at the ingenuity, skill and risk taking to get it done.  We have a few footage samples from this week that we believe you should check out. Remember to visit and subscribe if you like the footage so the creators can keep pushing the envelope.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←

Sony a6500 Slow Motion and Overheating!

Sony a6500 Slow Motion

The Sony a6500 came as a big surprise to a6300 owners in that their camera was loosing value overnight in the secondary market to a near identical close with a touch screen and IBIS stabilization.  However the camera has still not reached the hands of many pre order customers but we were able to find a few insights on the 120fps full HD slow motion mode.

The quality should be very similar to the a6300 since the sensor is identical but with slight improvements in the dynamic range and color pipeline should yield a slight increase in per pixel definition. The compression should be very close with the XAVC-S codec at 21Mbps at 24p and or 50Mbps at 60p with easily selectable formats.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←

Sony a6500 Keeps 120fps On Refined Update!

Sony a6500 front with lens.

On a clearly unexpected update of the a6xxx line of cameras Sony unveiled the α6500 E Mount camera much to the anger of people who just 6 months ago were buying the a6300 which became a darling for video shooters and APS-C photo shooters aswell. That camera brought oversampling of 6k to derive a 4k output which up to now created the sharpest and most detailed 4k image in consumer cameras.

However things were not all rosy with the a6300, many users cringed at the excessive rolling shutter skew when shooting 4k and the lack of dependable continuous tracking. There was also a lack of touch screen and no sensor stabilization which the a6500 aims to correct.  There is a lot of camera here so lets dig in…[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←
