Canon C100 AVCHD vs Ninja 2 comparison.

This isn't very scientific, and there's not 'much' to see, but I grabbed this comparison shot yesterday as I was leaving work.

The first image is a screen grab from the AVCHD internal codec writing to SDHC @ 24mbps, 8 Bit 4:2:0.

The second image is a screen from the Ninja 2 footage, which was captured @ 220mbps, 10 Bit 4:2:2.

This has allowed me to turn the C100 from a 5,000 camera into a 10,000 one!

Hopefully this is of some interest to a few...

C100 seems like a very good buy, but often dismissed because of its internal AVCHD codec and lack of 1080p60. But I think the c100 has a nice image from what I have seen, and is versatile once you record externally. It's so very compact, and the battery last very long.

----------

I mean, if you need 1080p60 for some shots, you can now buy a cheap GH3.

Of course, the Sony FS700 is good, but not so compact.

Looks like the field order is set incorrectly (i.e. set to 'upper' or 'lower' rather than 'progressive') for the first image.

I'd check again that it's not being recorded as PsF and interpreted as interlaced. I'm not sure how anything but the most extreme compression would cause that stair-stepping.

If it's not the camera it's the NLE. Those are de-interlacing artifacts, pure and simple.
