Get ready! The Great Camera Shootout 2011 is about to begin! From the Emmy Award winning production house, Zacuto Films, the web series tackles a new breed of cameras in the most scientific camera comparison to date. The GCSO 2011 is a documentary about the Single Chip Camera Evaluation (SCCE) which encompasses large-scale, technical, camera evaluation tests administered by Robert Primes, ASC. The GCSO is not a contest to decide out who makes the "best" camera. Rather, it is a collection of tests aimed to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the industry’s newest cameras.

In this series, you will see side by side comparisons of the newest cameras manufactured by Sony, Canon, Panasonic, Phantom, Weisscam, Nikon, Arri, RED as well as the gold standard of 35mm film. The SCCE consists of fifteen tests comparing twelve different cameras on a multitude of levels.

Each camera faced in-depth analysis in regard to it’s sharpness, low light sensitivity, exposure latitude, highlight detail, shadow detail, color quality, flesh tone reproduction, compression losses and shutter artifacts
