This chart was compiled by Thomas Fletcher and Gary Adcock with information gathered from conversations with numerous cinematographers, rental houses and manufacturers. This chart will help you make the best camera decision for your project.

Please report discrepancies to cameracomparisonchart@gmail.com. It is our sincere goal to have an accurate chart.

Updates will be posted as necessary. Please note we only include cameras that are available for sale and rent.

Please note that portions of this chart are subjective. This is not scientifically tested and collected data. Thomas Fletcher and Gary Adcock have sincerely tried to assemble accurate information to share with the industry. Their goal is to help producers make an educated decision in our rapidly changing camera and optical landscape - that said - numbers do not tell the whole story. Look at the images and consult your cinematographer. You are encouraged to test for yourself!

The 2019 ProductionHUB Gift Guide
It’s hard to believe that the holiday season is in full swing, but here we are! There are always so many great gift ideas every year, but this list was really tough. I wanted to be somewhat practical, but where is the fun in that? So, I tried as hard I could to narrow the list down to a few items that will fit nicely into your loved one's shoot bag and, for the most part, into your budget.

Introducing Dialogue Match: iZotope's Brand New Tool That is Revolutionizing Dialogue Editing and ADR Workflows
Introducing Dialogue Match: iZotope's Brand New Tool That is Revolutionizing Dialogue Editing and ADR Workflows
Dialogue Match is a Pro Tools AudioSuite tool intended for re-recording mixers who deliver the final sound mix for films and television programs. For decades, these mixers have had the tedious job of matching dialogue from lavalier, boom mics, and ADR in order to create a seamless and cohesive dialogue performance. This long and work-intensive process takes valuable time away from crafting the sound of a scene and producing a final mix. Using machine learning, Dialogue Match reduces this process to seconds, making it the first tool to automatically learn and match the reverberant character of dialogue recordings.

In Review: the Panasonic AG-CX350 4K Camera and SHOTOKU SX-200 Tripod
As the Technology Editor for ProductionHUB, my job is to review production tools used by media professionals like you. Normally, I only get to review these products one at a time. But recently, I had the great opportunity to test two products at the same time. The new Panasonic AG-CX350 4K Camera along with the new SHOTOKU SX 200 tripod. I thought it would be an excellent test since freelancers like you and me often work with gear that we might not always be that familiar with, but still need to get the job done.
