Keep in mind this is an extreme test to demonstrate the rolling shutter effect, no one in their right mind would pan like this. However, there are plenty of real life situations when the jello effect suddenly becomes a problem, a fast train or car passing will have leaning windows and elliptical wheels, or watching a chase scene with moving camera and subjects will make you dizzy. Until we get global shutters, the jello effect is CMOS sensor’s biggest Achilles Heel. Screen grabs, updated with 100% crops after the break
Foundry has a plug to fix this problem in aftereffects and nuke, but it ain’t cheap.i movie 11 also offers a jello fix however it drops the bit-rate substantially.
The Canon 5D3 was set to 1080/24P, ISO 100, Shutter Speed 1/50th, F8, WB 5600K, Picture Style Neutral, the Sony, 1080/24P, ISO 100, Shutter Speed 1/50, F8, Picture style Portrait, sharpening, contrast, saturation turned down to 0 on both cameras.
Surprise, the 5D3 kicks Nex 7’s gluteus maximus, I sure didn’t expect that from the FF sensor, either the Canon is very good or the Sony just terrible, your pick :)!
Take a look at the screengrabs and notice the moire (circled in the doubles) we get with the Nex 7? A real problem shooting with the 5D2, you will notice it in my Brooklyn bridge video shot with the 5D2. The 5D mark III doesn’t have it, this is HUGE!
stay tuned for more, I am very excited to start shooting with this baby!
