When DP Joe Stunzi came to Chicago to test all of the new HD cameras on the market against each other he initially had hopes of making a short video using the new Canon 5D Mark II. However Zacuto’s Steve Weiss Jens Bogehegn and Scott Lynch decided that another 5D MKII fluff piece is not what was needed. We needed to see the 5DMKII in relation to other cameras says Weiss.  So the Great Camera Shootout of '08 was born. In this video you will hear the four men discuss what they liked and disliked about each of the HD cameras and DOF adapters. “This test is really for independent filmmakers and web cinematographers who are creating content with the look and feel of a 35mm motion picture ” says Weiss.   In the video you can see a same shot comparison of: 35mm motion picture Red EX3 HVX200 HPX170 HPX3000 Sony EX3 Nikon D90 Canon 5D Mark II Letus35 Ultimate and Elite DOF adapters RedRock Micro and more.
