Guy Thatcher from www.hireacamera.com and I have spent a part of today playing with the new Nikon D4 and D800 and comparing them to the Canon 5D Mark II and my trusted Sony FS100.
Now we did not set out to create any sort of camera test but out of curiosty have compared a few features. Tomorrow we'll be lining them up for a daylight resolution comparison.
For now we've simply been figuring out what the buttons do and where they are.
Here is a very short low light comparison with the cameras set roughly around 2000 ISO (although we set the D4 to 4000 ISO because it looked dark in the LCD)
Scene is only illuminated by the screen of my 27" iMAc
Lenses used were Zeiss 35mm f1.4 on Nikon's and on FS100 and Canons a 24mm f1.4 L series.
Just a short comparison as we get to know these new and some not so new tools.
** This is just us messing around so please don't over analyse the results - this is just a side by side lit only with the screen of my 27" imac.
Thanks to Guy Thatcher from www.hireacamera.com for bringing up the toys this weekend.
