One other new digicam, one other new comparability. This time we’re taking a more in-depth have a look at the Canon R5 C which was simply launched just a few weeks in the past. Whereas many of the imaging pipeline is counting on current tech from the unique R5 which we’re aware of there are some tweaks and updates taken from Canon’s Cinema EOS line which will end in barely completely different picture high quality.
Right this moment, we’re going to take a look at how the R5 C holds up in dynamic vary as the blokes at ProAV TV put collectively a pleasant comparability between it, the R5, the C70, and even the Sony a7S III.
That is really a collection of checks that ProAV TV is planning on doing with the R5 C. They’re beginning with the all-important dynamic vary. Their check entails over and underexposing some footage and performing corrections to see how effectively the footage holds up.
Usually they follow utilizing the aperture with supplementary changes to shutter pace. It’s a really sensible and efficient check of how the digicam holds up.
On this check, since they’re utilizing so many alternative cameras, they’re sticking to simply the min and max checks of 4 stops over and 4 stops beneath.
Beginning off with the R5 C subsequent to the R5 we see some similarities. At 4 stops over each are clipping the face, although perhaps there’s a contact extra info within the R5 C. Now, at 4 stops beneath you’ll be able to see a distinction because the R5 has a whole lot of magenta noise which doesn’t present within the R5 C. That is seemingly a change in how the picture is processed.
One more reason that the R5 C appears to carry out higher than the R5 is the codec. The XF-AVC on the R5 C appears to look higher and extra pure at these excessive settings. It holds up higher. The R5 C appears to have a bigger usable dynamic vary than the unique R5.
Subsequent up is the R5 C up in opposition to the a7S III and the C70. These are three very completely different cameras. Instantly, you will note much more element within the overexposure check. The face simply holds on to extra element, it might be due to the completely different curve of S-Log3 vs Canon Log 3.
With the C70, you see a little bit extra clipping than the others. This may be trigger we’re in C-Log3 as an alternative of C-Log2, which simply would possibly squeeze out extra dynamic vary with the C70. The C70 does have a bigger dynamic vary on paper. By way of extra subjective comparisons, the a7S III positively holds on to extra element, but it surely does seem rather less pure when corrected.
With beneath publicity, the C70 appears to take the lead with efficiency. It appears far more pure when corrected. It’s noisy nonetheless, however the ranges are extra pure feeling. The a7S III and R5 C have a extra distinct, digital look with horizontal noise bands. The Twin Achieve Output sensor of the C70 appears to be saving the day right here.
Now for the enjoyable half, evaluating to the previous 1D C. At 4 stops over the 1D C is simply gone with no element in any respect within the face. Past that even the background is failing in sustaining correct coloration. In beneath publicity, it’s a related image with unnatural-looking colours and pores and skin tones. The ten years because the 1D C do present that technological developments within the R5 C are big.
Total, the R5 C is doing an unimaginable job with dynamic vary. It seems to be pushing the written ranking of 14+ stops for certain when taking pictures in Canon Log 3.
What did you consider this check? Do you agree with their evaluation?
