A form factor comparison of the Fuji FinePix X100 vs Olympus PEN EP-3 versus Sony NEX C3 digital camera. A little additional info: All these cameras will take GREAT PHOTOS, with a slight (VERY slight) advantage possibly going to the SONY, who are renowned for their sensor quality. In video applications, however, that same sensor becomes SONY’s downfall, as they are notorious for overheating issues. You can still take HD quality video with the SONY, but expect to only get a few minutes (5-15 typically, depending on temperature conditions) at a time. All of these cameras also have a 29 [More]
This is a short test in low light against the hacked GH2. The GH2 is set to 1080/24p AVCHD 44Mbit with Auto Quantizer 4. The NEX 5N is set to 1080/25p AVCHD 24Mbit. We’ve included some 1080/50p slow motion footage as well and normally lit scenes shot with the NEX 5N. Lenses: GH2 – Samyang 35mm F1.4, 5N – Canon 50mm F1.2 L. Both set to F1.4 throughout. Later 5N scenes are with the standard 18-55mm kit lens. When comparing these cameras, one factor to consider is the number of available lenses. The GH2 is a micro 4/3 camera and [More]
Hands-on with the SONY NEX-VG20 vs the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2. Bottom line: The GH2 and VG20 are both great cameras. Aside from the form factor, with the GH2 taking on a traditional DSLR-like shape, and the VG-20 more of a video cam style, here are some observations. The VG-20 lacks manual color, contrast and sharpness adjustments, but it has a built-in headphone jack and full manual audio control, it is better than the unhacked GH2 in low light and the factory-set color profile is just fine. The GH2 does handle moire better — but just barely. You will see moire [More]
