Nick Driftwood posted that “Panasonic GH4 V log L versus Sony A7s S Log 2″ comparison video. He writes:
Here’s test number 1 of a few coming up. A rather quick ‘vanilla’ test done in the back garden of my 83 year-old father – both cameras using similarly matched lenses , shutter and aperture was adjusted to keep in accordance to the default recommended LOG ISO as given by each camera. Exposure was bang on 0 for each. Nothing else I will give away about the above…just yet!
Panasonic GH4 has ISO 400 in V Log L and Sony A7s has 3200 ISO.
A7s is a full frame, GH4 is a M43.
I may or may not have moved the position of the focal length of each lens.
GH4 lens was a 12-35 Panasonic lens and the A7s was a 24-70 Canon.
This is a fun test and not to be taken seriously by camera fanboys.
With a little adjustment (not shown) its fairly easy to make both cameras match each other during grading.
