tests the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K with the Red Epic:
We did a side-by-side comparison with the Blackmagic Production Camera (BMPC) and the RED EPIC.
This test ist by no means scientific or should prove which camera is better or whatever! The intention was to check, if these cameras will work together as an A and B-Cam setup.
The BMPC 4K had (at the time of this test) only the ProRes 4K (UHD) mode available. The RED EPIC was used with different compresssion settings from 5:1 to 12:1 (for the slomos).
All footage is OUT OF CAMERA without any color correction, LUT or grading applied. The RED EPIC was set to RED Color 3 and RED Gamma 3.
The footage was downscaled to 1080p HD and compressed for Vimeo. We will post some fullsize frame grabs in the next days on our blog and facebook. We will also post our personal thoughts in the next days – till then: Enjoy ;)
Which one’s better? Get some frame grabs here.
