Learning Cameras' reviews are designed to be informative and interesting more than anything else. Camera reviews are created in a way to best test out equipment and put it through every test we can think of. Lenses are reviewed using methods designed to test the performance and consistency of every piece of glass. DSLR Camera and Lens reviews are a vital part to ensuring that you aquire the equipment that is right for you saving you time and money.
On paper, it’s hard to argue with the NX1. With a 28MP APS-C sensor, 15fps, 4k video, and 205 AF points, it really looks like a camera begging for attention. But Samsung is new to this market segment so there is plenty of room for skepticism. So for the past month I have been putting this camera to the test to see if it can really deliver on what I would call a stunning spec sheet for the asking price of $1500.

The GH4 is an awesome camera by itself but adding a Metabones speedbooster with the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 lens turns the GH4 into a full frame equivalent of a f2.8 zoom offering shallow depth of field as well as great low light performance from this smaller sensor camera. Take a look to see how it is done and if it is worth it.

Both the A7s and 5D are a combination of photography and video cameras, but Sony definitively launched the A7s to appeal more to video while the 5D is still largely a photographer's camera. So in one sense it’s a bit unfair to go with this comparison because the 5D Mark III is a phenomenal still camera and is definitely the camera I’ll take for my wedding photography jobs, that said, there are quite a few videographers using the 5D Mark III for video, including me and so this comparison is for us.
Two brand new video cameras with different strengths going head to head is always a ton of fun. Not quite as fun as having to make the decision of which one of these cameras to purchase. We all know by now that nothing beats the A7s in low light and the 4k in camera shooting of the GH4 definitely has it’s advantages. So which one of these cameras should take its place in your camera bag, let’s find out in this review.
