RED Epic vs. Canon C500

Publish date:

DP Shane Hurlbut writes up his exensive camera tests of the Canon C500 and RED Epic for feature film Need for Speed. He goes over everything from underexposing to fill ratio and more and gives side by side image and videos comparisons.

He writes, "What I really took away from this test was that it is absolutely essential to use the right camera sensor for what it does best. The Red Epic did well with under exposing, but then fell short in the night driving scene where underexposure is everywhere. It had a very hard time with IR pollution and delivered across the board a more magenta image. The C500 delivered great skin tones, a very clean image with ND filtration without IR pollution and owned the night, but fell short in the over exposure area."
