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 ←

TheVideoMode Has Leica SL and a7s II Previews!

The folks of TheVideoMode.com  have had some time with the new Leica SL Typ 601 and the Sony A7s Mark II.  Some videos showing the interface for accessing the slow motion interface have been posted on their site.  There is also a slow motion low light sample of the A7s Mark II at 120fps for you to watch.

Leica SL Typ 601 120fps 1080p Will Cost You!

LeicaSL34

Leica introduced the Leica SL Typ 601 mirrorless ILC “Interchangeable Lens Camera” With three lenses for the new system:  the Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-90mm F2.8-4 ASPH, Apo-Vario Elmarit-SL 90-280mm F2.8-4 and Summilux-SL 50mm F1.4 ASPH.

The Leica SL Camera itself has a 24MP Full Frame sensor based on the Leica Q camera sensor with modifications. Some speculate that the sensor is a Panasonic made part.  The camera can take 11fps continuous shooting and 4k video at 24p  and UHD at 30p. But what cought our eye was that it offers true 1080p 120fps mode and a 720p 120fps mode.  Why include the latter is anybodys guess but if it is a sensor crop at 720p it allows for slow motion Telephoto.  The 1080p 120fps mode uses the entire sensor area and down-samples to create the frame rate.  We did notice some moderate aliasing in the samples that have been released but nothing too pronounced.  The slow motion quality is actually extremely good and it is quite possibly on par with the best 120fps compact cameras out there today.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←
