Reply Linas Vaičiukynas July 5, 2019 That tint does not look appealing to be honest :/ Reply Peter V July 5, 2019 This is exactly stuff that I've recently been looking for!!! I have a Sony a6500 and a a7iii. I've been wondering should I look to invest in a Sony Fs7? I film an eclectic array of video. Everything from talking head testimonials, to IG commercials to fight videos to weddings. I ultimately want to do some mini doc style videos like the UFC embedded type of videos. Thoughts anyone? Annnnnnd go! Reply Fabio Melo Luiz July 5, 2019 Good comparison; And with Lumix S1, when does one come out? Congrats on the video! FromBrazil Reply Richard Collins Photography July 5, 2019 I'm not gonna lie I prefer the EOS R colors over the cinema cameras regardless of the DR. The skin tones looked better on the EOS R.

Really love the smooth cinematic image out of RED cameras which cannot be achieved by many other cameras. Reply Hugh G. Rection July 5, 2019 LA Gang Reply Dave Craige July 5, 2019 Nice video! That EOS R is impressive! Reply Eduardo Vilaça July 5, 2019 JUST GET ATOMOS NINJA V AND REDO THIS TEST PLEASEEE! Reply Markslimm July 6, 2019 You should make a comparison video between the Canon EOS R and Blackmagic pocket cinema camera 4k. Also potato jet is one of the best YouTube channels there! Reply Sing In Perfect English July 6, 2019 8:25Oh no!!!!! I suppose you could make this super epic with some music and cropping 😂 Reply Deborah Gallegos July 6, 2019 about to pull the trigger & buy ur new EOS R LUTs. Quick question 1st tho: Do u put on CLog to Rec709 LUT FIRST & then put ur LUTs on as a “look”? Or do u just put ur LUTs on straight to the CLog footage? Thanks! Reply Media Environment July 6, 2019 Congrats for the video, and congrats for sell the LUT's in a honesty way, explaining what they are and saying that they are not magic. Thank you!

Reply Bernardas Sakenas July 6, 2019 This guy tries to support Canon so much. Reply Xavier Schattel July 6, 2019 Or you could just use your BMPCC 4K. Reply MsMoeb July 6, 2019 Those tests are always retarded. Just clickbaits. Cinema camera aren't just to be compared straight out of camera to others. They are meant to offer you the best possibilities and quality in post production. And they would destroy them each and every time. I know this is obviously sponsored because, hey, who would use canon in 2019, but come on man, you know better than this. Reply Ben Mc nights July 6, 2019 Great video as always! I would totally purchase an 80d picture profile it you made one ! Reply Austin Hammock July 6, 2019 Canon color is much better Reply sunay VLOGS July 6, 2019 I like mostly your comparison videos 🤩🤩👌👌 Reply Mobile Tech Point July 6, 2019 Mr Accident 😂😂😅😅😅 Reply Artform Insights! July 6, 2019 Your comparison videos to RED and ARRI inspired my own comparison on the OnePlus 7 Pro to the RED Scarlet-W. But this new vid of yours packs so much info, I'm ashamed of mine 😅! I'm watching yours on a150inch projector and the footage is so well shot and graded I'm jaw-dropped. Everyone should watch this on a big screen! 😀 Reply DJ Anamaly July 6, 2019 Would like to see a comparison with the Fuji cameras Reply roquista1 July 6, 2019 please do a video about a good begginer ( cheap ) dslr for video 🙁 Reply Rick Yang July 6, 2019 EOS R has 2 major issues 1, as you said, lack of dynamic range; 2, rolling shutter on 4k. Reply MoonDoggie82 - T1GN July 6, 2019 With the beginning options B looked super green. I didn't like how it looked at all. Would love to check out the EOS R. Reply Fredi panther July 6, 2019 Why do you talk like this? Reply MatthiasAI July 6, 2019 I know everyone wants to go green.. but that green tint is to strong! Reply Neil Oler July 6, 2019 Why is the Alexa kind of green? Reply My Destiny July 6, 2019 That’s the importance of knowing the gear you own. By a few seconds of video I already knew the left side one is the Canon by the colors 😉 great video Reply Neil Mo July 6, 2019 Oh no the r is a massive disappointment Reply salvador vega July 6, 2019 How many times can we see this same video 😍 Reply hkk97 July 6, 2019 Highly recommend to review zcam e2. It footage on YouTube really look cool Reply Scott Waldron July 6, 2019 The Arri was really green looking on my basic LCD screen. On the other hand Canon's tendency is that strong magenta. Maybe the Arri is simply more true-to-life in the default coloration? I'd say Nikon's default out of camera for photo/video is similar to the Arri with a more prominent green cast. I noticed the difference in color faster than dynamic range and DOF differences. Interesting video. 🙂 Reply lalione July 7, 2019 How about canon c200? Reply Mike Fuhrmann July 7, 2019 Good stuff! Would be great to see a comparison of Blackmagic Pocket 4k vs RED vs Alexa Mini. Reply Frank Torres July 7, 2019 Hello Jet Boy. What is a Lutz? Is it just a color setting? Can I make my own Lutz? Do I need to learn computer code? Or is it simply a color adjustment with a fancy name? Jet Boy I'm taking to you. Reply Jacob Voss July 7, 2019 Had some serious color shift issues with the cinema camera… not sure if the grade or issue with alexa Reply Jake James July 7, 2019 Fuck that camera dude. Had it for a few months and hated it. Great 1080 but I’ve switched over to a BMPCC 4K and 1DC and the ability to match the pocket to my c200 is amazing. Literally the best b cam for c200 users. Just couldn’t get into that EOS R. Great video, though!

What is a LUT? Reply Jinoj Jinoj July 7, 2019 Good Reply Genkidama SF July 7, 2019 Great comparison vid! can you do it with canon RP cs Arri Alexa?? Reply Craig Shepherdson July 7, 2019 Hi, great comparison of the EOS R and high end cinema gear. Seeing that you are “not sponsored by canon at all” 😉, what is your opinion on using after-market software ( aka Magic Lantern) on Canon DSLRs to “unlock” extra functionality. I have an old 550d (UK name – Rebel T2i in the US) running Magic Lantern which I use as a “B” camera (1080p 50fps) it simply wouldn’t have enough flexibility using factory software, but I don’t have the budget to use Arri & Red equipment so I use what I have :-). Do you think the “stock” EOS R allows enough flexibility without “hacking” it?It would be great to see you do a review/comparison of Magic Lantern at some point in the future. Reply Michal Majerník July 7, 2019 oh hell yeah! BOUGHT THEM. <3 Reply Võ Thụy Ánh Hồng Xuân July 7, 2019 You should call yourself Potato R 🙂 Reply Samm Ralte July 7, 2019 Oneplus 7 vs Arri Alexa please Reply Alex Lancashire Photography July 7, 2019 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0IZik9lmNA My gear.

Reply Tanjida Shen July 8, 2019 I know you're Canon fan. I know very easily which was red because red colour has green tint . And most of the situation it look contrasting. It's ok. Why did you review sony and sony cinema camera .like Sony venice cine alta. Sony has better dynamic range compare to Canon in terms of log . Sony camera has better details and sharpness compare to Canon .Canon sharpness looks plasticy. Reply VIDEO MARK July 8, 2019 7:22 that's the longest dog tongue I have ever seen!

Using it for concert photography and festivals. Reply Skinny2Swole July 8, 2019 Reds add a green tint just like Arris. Reply Anthony Fesce July 9, 2019 And another WTF video from potatojet 😂 Reply Suprahead Studio July 9, 2019 Please do luts for A7iii Reply Shravan Kashalikar July 9, 2019 Why does the RED and ARRI look so green?I mean sure it looks more so when compared to a magenta-leaning canon color science, but hey, Canon looks much more natural than the other two much expensive and professionally used cinema cameras.Why, I really wonder… Reply Ken’s PAD - photo audio digital July 9, 2019 Could you do a test for video quality: canon eosR 4k paired with Zeiss 100mm makro lens, recorded onto atomos monitor-recorder, at the highest quality file possible Reply deaniweenie July 9, 2019 Is 'Potato Jet' a reference to masturbation? Reply splashdownmodels July 10, 2019 Ok to be fair your comparing a scarlet to a new canon, so why don't you compare it with the Red Gemini. Reply 港人港生活 July 10, 2019 Hey man will you have luts for sony A7iii? Reply Rghost Hero July 11, 2019 I swear to God the cannon looks betterThe arri Alexa just looks like a green blob and even skin looks green what the hell 😂😂 Reply Jack of Blades July 11, 2019 Don't forget about the green tint to cinema cameras Reply Adolfo Usier July 12, 2019 nice channel📸 Reply mastertree July 12, 2019 Great Video Reply Tevin Limon July 13, 2019 What gave it away for me is the cinema footage is much softer straight out of camera. Reply ekphotography July 13, 2019 Please do a Zcam E2 comparison! PLEASE!!! Reply CarOnTheWall July 16, 2019 The first thing I notice in all of the clips is i like the canon color better than the other two. Reply Davis T. July 16, 2019 Record externally then repeat the test please Reply BLC July 20, 2019 The Red is waaaay green. Ironic. Reply Tamiya Fan July 22, 2019 To be honest the Canon looked better in many shots than the RED does. The Green tint is horrible on the RED and it often does not seem to have an image fitting to a camera in its price range. The Arri on the other hand is the clear winner and the footage always looks just right. The more I get into the cinema cameras the more I hate RED cameras. Add to that all the reliability issues users have and now the memory card scandal and I would spend the extra to get an Arri. Reply Unsolicited Advice July 23, 2019 Aaaand I am back on this side of YouTube, where my unaffordable wishlist camera is the “super cheap/ just bought two of them” camera 😆Btw, great work! I can’t edit one timeline properly and here you are, seamlessly moving through multiple cameras! Reply Automatisator Peace July 24, 2019 Too bad that you haven't tested the old BMPCC (12bit CinemaDNG/RAW, 10bit ProRes, good DR…) yet, because it has a similar cinematic look to arri alexa and was (still is) used more often next to arri alexa. Reply Dan Campbell July 24, 2019 What if the EOS R is a bit out of my price range (I'm poor), is the M50 a solid replacement as an entry-level camera? I know (from watching your vids) that the M50 doesn't handle 4K very well, but for vlogging? Reply BozDuke13 July 29, 2019 Imagine If you compared the A7iii Reply Ian Corzine August 18, 2019 Really great video — thanks for your help with the EOS R color profile! Reply NEBlackshirts August 21, 2019 Thanks for this! Excellent! Also worth mentioning that if you also use a cinema line of Canon (C200, C300, etc), they play very nicely together in post. The colors match so well that it's very hard to tell which camera is being used. I shoot with a C200 as my main camera, EOSR as B both shooting C-Log. I have also been using my EOSR as my main camera for many jobs due to it's size and functionality. Reply nath deeanandlarp August 26, 2019 Hi Gene thank you for such great and informative video. I just bought Eos R + Atomos ninja V and i have some questions. I know i can output 10bit 25p 4k. But when i try to do 1080p 25p out it wouldn’t let me it only outputs 1080 50p. So therefore the EOS R cannot output 1080 at 25fps to the Atomos is that correct? Thank you so much in advance. I have been trying to make it output 25p for hours and still couldn’t do it 🙏🏻 Reply David Makvandi September 12, 2019 I think you already mentioned this in another video, but do you shoot your youtube videos in 1080p or 4k? Also All-i or IPB? Reply Simwanza Liswaniso September 24, 2019 i really enjoy your videos. May you please compare the RED and the Nikon Z6 to an external recorder.. Thank you Reply Jordan Sarkisian September 30, 2019 They're definitely catching up, just saw someone sell their C200s for 2 EOS R cameras. Stop nerfing your cameras Canon, 1080p 120fps and FF 4K ain't the reason people step up to a cinema camera:/ Reply Add a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
