Most Usable Camera for Video Purpose ?

Canon 200D II for sure, since we are getting blazing fast AF in Full HD video mode, the AF performance of Canon 200D II will remain better compared to Panasonic G95 due to its enhanced DPAF system. Panasonic 4K mode also suffers from  excessive crop and limited AF performance as we canon 200D II / SL3 camera.

    At a 2.5 crop factor compared to a full frame, the area used for video by the G95 is slightly bigger than the area used by the 200D II, at 2,56 crop factor compared to full frame. The illustration used does not reflect this fact. The crop shown on the 4/3 sensor is not the correct 1.25 crop, is probably a 1.6 crop.

    Yeah, one is .06x bigger. lol These are recording on Super 16 size sensors… So I guess you can forg et wide shots, unless you get pretty clever. This is Blackmagic Pocket 1 size (which is a much better camera Gotham these, even in 1080).

    Panasonic is using 0.06x more area compared to Canon (2.56 vs 2.50), literally that little space doesn’t make any difference.

  • Santiago

    My point is that the red rectangle draw over the 4/3 sensor to ilustrate the area used in video, ought to be the same or very slightly larger than the rectangle draw over the aps-c sensor. The rectangle draw over the 4/3 sensor corresponds to a 1.6 crop and not to a 1.25 crop as you said. In both sensors the area used by video is practically the same, so the rectangles ought to be the same or even very slightly bigger the one on the 4/3 sensor.
