Limitation ofcard formatting. Max file size is 4gb. This equates to 12minsof 1080.
No, ML has already gotten past that. Just format the CF card to exFAT on your computer and record to whatever file size you wish.
Audio: no professional xlr inputs or headphone monitoring.
5D3 has built-in headphone monitoring and all you need to do is attach a small little new JUicedLink and you get your XLR inputs.
Codec: lossy & difficult to edit h.264, lacks colour sampling depth compared to 4:2:2 & 4:4:4 etc.
h.264 edits fine if you have any decent modern nvidia card and enable the engine in premiere pro
the codec doesn't do much damage (compared Ninja2 over clean HDMI out) to all-i internal
using ninja 2 you get 4:2:2 and internally you use ML RAW for really amazing color and tonality
Weak AA filter designed for 18mp, not really effective on 2mp resolution.
Well it's pretty effective on the 5D3 since they mush it anyway. Aliasing and moire can show a bit using ML RAW so it's not like an Alexa, but it actually seems no worse and sometimes even better than Black Magic.
Limited to 1080 recording. A 19k camera will have 4k.
Decent video monitor with zebra, peaking.
ML gives zebra and peaking and magic zoom box.
A ninja gives that on a small external monitor, granted not built-in.
Lack of sdi connections, lack of timecode controls.
Smaller photosites. Lower base iso. Lack of built in nd filters.
Yeah smaller photosites but larger sensor and that is what matters for the cameras that use the full sensor and the 5D3 cleans up against even many big boy video cameras when it comes to SNR.
No built-in ND is true.
60d is great cam and can produce great video. A deducated video camerajust does mostthings better.
But a 5D3 with a hack (and perhaps a couple small add-ons) does many things as well or better than many, if certainly not all, video cameras.
One of the biggest differences is that the serious video camera are free of jello and none of the DSLR are.
