This is a side by side comparison of the Nikon D800 and the Canon 5D mk2.

I was shooting a music video using the D800 and decided to do a quick take using the D800 and my old canon 5D mk2 side by side to see how they both looked.

Please note - it's not a proper test, I didn't really try to match the colour profiles or anything, but the iso, shutter speeds and appertures are the same. Both were shot using their respective 24-70 f2.8 lenses.

iso - 640
25 fps
f 2.8

I think the Nikon may have been slightly 'front focused' too, (judging by the can in the bottom left corner).

The music is by a very talented British songwriter, Micky Greaney who features in the video.

The main video is now up - here -
