Last year we picked 4K cameras that we thought presented the most value, and then we compared them in our 4K Camera Shootout of 2016. This year, we’re back with the 2017 edition.
The three cameras featured in this video are:
- Sony a6500
- Panasonic GH5
- BlackMagic URSA Mini 4.6K Pro
As you saw in the video, our winner was the Panasonic GH5.
We might do Part II of this video, since there are other interesting 4K cameras on the market, and it’s likely we’ll see new contenders before the end of the year. Please let us know which cameras you’re interested in.
Here’s Tom’s review of the GH5.
Here‘s Tom’s review of the URSA Mini 4.6K (the image quality of the Pro and this camera is the same; please watch here to hear Tom talk about the main differences between the two models of the URSA Mini 4.6K)
Here‘s Tom’s review of the Sony a6300 (a6300 and a6500 have the same sensor, so the image quality is the same; a full review of the a6500 is coming soon).
Here is where you can buy these cameras:
In all these tests, Tom used Rokinon Cine DS lenses (of various focal lengths).
