AF100 Testing

June 7, 2013 § Leave a comment

For the next shoot, I’d like to use the Panasonic AF100 camera available. With this camera, I have the option of using a Ninja external recording unit which will allow direct recording to Apple Pro Res codec via HDMI. This will add bulk and slow the shoot down, so this is side-by-side test between internal H.264 (left) and external Pro Res (right) capture methods.

While recording to Pro Res didn’t improve image quality much, it holds up better to grading and the grain appears more filmic (no compression artefacts). Having said this, the improvement to capture is no where near drastic enough to justify shooting to the Ninja.
