The rugged EOS-1D X Mark III has great low-light performance, deep learning AF technology and 5.5K Raw video. It captures full-frame 4K/60p with Canon Log and H.265, or 5.5K Raw footage. A 20.1-megapixel sensor is great in low light, with a maximum ISO of 102,400, expandable to 819,200. Dynamic range is outstanding, recorded to dual CFexpress card slots. As streaming grows, our camcorder award once again goes to JVC. This time, it’s the flagship, innovative broadcast camcorder that offers a level of connectivity not found elsewhere. It features three 2/3-inch CMOS image sensors for high sensitivity, low noise and wide dynamic range. It’s equipped with a powerful new communications engine that truly makes news-over- IP a reality, with a streamlined ENG workflow that’s reliable and cost- effective. It’s built to last, delivering top-quality content in broadcast TV or streaming.

The Sony FX6 is the Editor’s Choice in the cinema camera class. A year on from launch, there are still huge waiting lists to buy one. It’s essentially the same BSI- CMOS sensor and AF tech as the new Sony A7S III mirrorless. The headline specs remain: 4K/60p full-frame with no crop, recorded internally to SD or new-school CFexpress Type A cards, in 10-bit 4:2:2 All-Intra with no limitations on recording time – and with all the advanced hybrid AF functions still working. The FX6 shoots 120fps 4K internally, too, as well as 240fps in HD for up to 10x super slow-motion – although there is a slight crop at the fastest frame rates. There’s a huge range of HD and 4K options, in 10-bit and 8-bit, 4:2:2 and 4:2:0, All-Intra and Long GOP.

using the new Canon RF-style lens mount. The big selling point of the Komodo is the global shutter, which completely eliminates all rolling shutter issues that every other camera at this price point has. What the Red Komodo also does is record compressed Raw in three different quality levels – low, medium or high – and all the debayering is done in post. It can also be set to record in various flavours of ProRes 422 for faster workflow. It’s a camera that offers fantastic performance, stunning Raw output, no rolling shutter issues and the perk of owning a Red. All for a price that’s more affordable than any other from the same brand. In the DSLR category, Canon’s EOS-1D X Mark III remains king of the hill, with a spec few can match. It’s the professional sport shooter’s camera, with similarly cutting-edge video spec.
