Sony, Panasonic, Canon, and Blackmagic Design are pitted against each other.
And we dug through the results to see which is the best for making movies and tell you why it may not even matter.
There are so many different cameras available—cinema, mirrorless, hybrid, ENG, action, and mobile—that it can sometimes be confusing what the best and most important features are, especially for filmmakers. That’s where camera shootouts can help you decide which kit is best for your project, especially if you’re on a tight budget.
A recent “Ultimate Camera Brand Shootout” from Tomorrow’s Filmmakers compared the features of three mirrorless and one cinema camera to see which one filmmakers can rely on. On top of that, they all sit well under $4,000. Check out their video.
The Camera Showdown
The chosen cameras for this shootout were the Canon EOS R5, the Blackmagic 6K Pro, the Sony a7S III, and the Panasonic LUMIX GH6. While some of them are newer, specifically the GH6, there are strong differences between the brands that make it hard to choose one over the other without a deeper dive.
