Canon vs. Nikon. It’s a feud as old as time, with a deep line drawn in the sand and all parties ready to fight to the bitter death for their beloved companies. Me, I am a Canon user, but my alliances are wavering to a possible desertion to Fujifilm or Sony in the near future. (Write your death threats in comment section below…)
In either case, when you pit the two camera giants together, the results are always of interest, which is why this video, caught my eye. In the following video, Jay P. Morgan from The Slanted Lens does a side-by-side comparison of the new Nikon D810 and the Canon 5D Mark III. He compares the color balance, sharpness, details, low light performance, and overall image quality of each camera in video comparison tests. Using the same exposure settings, he tested each camera outdoors, indoors and in low light. Let’s see how each camera performed under fire…or, well, smoke.
Jay P. put Spencer in a fire suit, mixed in some smoke and a blue sky backdrop and shot with the 70-200mm lens. See for yourself which camera comes out ahead:
