Panasonic GH4 and Sony FDR AX100 Comparison in 4K: Bright, Contrasty Light, Locked Down
7 months ago

https://vimeo.com/96854363

Comparison of 4K video of bright scenes at 30 fps. Both cameras mounted on tripods side by side. Both in Standard Picture Mode. Manual focus using focus peaking, shutter priority at 1/60th (180 degree shutter). Zebras used. .8 ND filter on the Panasonic; built-in ND's used on the Sony. OIS was not disabled for either camera (with some consequences).

The lens on the Panasonic was the Lumix 12-35mm f2.8. The scenes were matched in composition and exposure.

Edited in Sony Vegas Pro 13, rendering as XAVC S at over 100 Mbps.

The first clip in each scene is the Panasonic.
