This is the video portion of the Third Year RIT Motion Picture Science Camera Shootout. Our team chose to pit the SONY FS700 and the Arri ARRIFLEX D-21 against each other in a head to head competition to determine which system is truly superior for student use at RIT.
The SONY was tested using HD Video Mode for all of the tests as well as some 4K RAW capture for a select portion of the testing. The Arri D-21 was shot in ARRIRAW for all of the testing.
This video compares noise, color reproduction, skin tone reproduction, sharpness, aliasing and MTF as well as a host of other image details throughtout a variety of scenes. Our camera crew consisted of Carly Cerquone, David Villareal, Matt Bernstein and Jordan Westhoff (myself).
The video follows in the theme of the crime drama Law and Order. All shooting done at the Rochester Institute of Technology.
