Tom Fletcher and Gary Adcock’s New 2018 Camera Comparison Chart Now On-line

2018CamCompChartx600Gary Adcock and Tom Fletcher, (current and former Presidents of the Digital Cinema Society Midwest Chapter), have come out with an update to their now famous Camera Comparison Chart. The information has been gathered from numerous conversations with various cinematographers, colorists, colleagues and manufacturers. In fact, the new version is set up as a Google Doc that will live on-line so that it can be updated more quickly as feedback is received and technology advances.  The authors can be reached to report discrepancies by email to: cameracomparisonchart

The authors stress that this is subjective, rather than scientifically collected and tested data with the goal of sharing information with the industry in order to help filmmakers make educated decisions on cameras and formats. The update now includes the ARRI ALEXA LF, RED Monstro, Sony Venus, Canon C700 with Codex, and the Panasonic EVA-1, among many more. Details include estimated latitude, frame rates, resolution, weight, rental cost, as well as perceived pluses and minuses all summarized to two pages.  To view or for printable PDF:
