50d vs 5d3 raw quality
« on: August 17, 2017, 06:57:22 AM »
what ive seen compairing these two (am i right?)

1080p image is very close to eachother.

5d3 has a slight increase in

- resolution (5d3 a bit sharper in 1080p)
- low light (5d3 better)
- dynamic range (a little bit more stop in 5d3)

BUT

its pretty minor. colours are practically same. the 1080p image in 24p of these two cameras is practically the same. the image quality of the 5d3 is around 10% better.

am i right or wrong here?

The colours are the same.

50D max resolution without crop mode 16:9: 1584x892
5D3 max resolution without crop mode 16:9: 1920x1080
% difference in resolution: 21%

50D max resolution in crop mode continous: 2000x1080
5D3 max resolution in crop mode continous: 3072x1320
% difference in resolution: 53% horizontal 22% vertical

Other key differences:
Low light is about 2 stop better on the 5D3
Dynamic Range is almost the same, but the shadow noise on the 50D is much worst

50D uses line skipping for video, which means lot's of moire and aliasing. If you have mosaic engineering VAF filter you can rid of it.
50D cannot record sound in camera
Fullframe vs APSC

For the price the 50D is awesome

For a casual viewer the difference between 50D + VAF raw vs 5D3 raw is marginal
