Comparing 1DX2 vs 5D4 video "reach" at high ISO

This might not be news but some might find the video comparison useful.

I know the crop at 4k is a PITA at the wide end, but it can be mega useful at the long end.

Using one body and one lens - Canon 5D4 and 200-400/1.4x - gives an effective "reach" of a 200-1,904mm f/5.6 lens on the 5D4, assuming final output is at 1920x1080.

40,000 ISO comparison here: https://vimeo.com/206155690

Using a Sigma/Tamron 150-600 in place of the Canon 200-400 would give you 150-2,040mm for a fraction of the cost, with more range in a single zoom action but with a 1/3 stop loss (and inferior image stabilisation IMO).

Of course you can't zoom through the entire range in one shot. Still, very useful.

Thanks for that.

40,000 iso doesn't look too bad either.

Have you Ever filmed with that long mm, it will easily be too shaky.

You mean like in the video linked above? Use a tripod!
