The Red Scarlet Versus Panasonic GH2
I recently ran across this article on the Video Blog EOSHD that compared the inexpensive Panasonic GH2 against the newly released Red Scarlet. Both shoot still photos, with the Panasonic being known for mainly being a still photo capture device. That said, Panasonic also equipped it with fabulous video capture, and it’s the video imagery that EOSHD was looking at. Comparing the two cameras is almost ridiculous since the GH2 is about $699 for the body. The Red Scarlet is in the range of $15,000 to get enough pieces put together to be able to shoot it properly. The difference in price is substantial yet the difference in video quality is amazingly close for the normal viewer. Read the article to see for yourself and to see some of the samples they’ve included. Panasonic really is producing amazing technology for a rock bottom price.
