5D III and D800 video....
Sep 13, 2013

This is not to start a war between two cameras and only polite responses will be read.

So, I tried making a video with both cameras up to 3200 ISO. I am not going to post them because it is a private video. Also, I am not a professional videographer and only make videos once every second blue moon.

Here is what I have discovered. Both samples looked good and I could not tell them apart.

But the camera features for video are different. I like the D800 slightly more.

D800 has sound bars right there on the screen while 5D3 I have to press Q button.

D800 allows to focus while recording with shutter button and AF-on, 5D3 only with AF-on.

Other than that I really don't see any differences.

Can anyone explain in layman's terms why 5D3 considered better. I am definitely not going to be using ML firmware.
