Fea­tur es

Char­ac­ter­is­tics worth brag­ging about

Mac Format - - RATED -

The Hero 3+ shoots 4K at only 12 frames per sec­ond, too slow for re­al­is­tic mo­tion and too fast for time lapse. We’d rec­om­mend you wait for the next it­er­a­tion of GoPro for your smoother 4K fix – as we go to press, it’s avail­able for pre-or­der.

The HX-A500E’s fea­tures list is pretty ba­sic, with a sin­gle fixed fo­cal length at 4K but, like the GoPro, it does of­fer Wi-Fi con­nec­tiv­ity. Sony’s FDR-AX100E hand­held recorder has an ex­cel­lent se­lec­tion of fea­tures, though, in­clud­ing an in­tu­itive touch­screen, ex­cel­lent 12x op­ti­cal zoom and built in ND fil­ters.

The FZ1000 has a de­cent fixed zoom lens and the EOS-1D C has an en­vi­ous list of fea­tures in­clud­ing the ex­cel­lent C Log (to as­sist with post­pro­duc­tion colour grad­ing).

Bril­liantly, the GH4 can record 4K in­ter­nally to high-speed SD cards at 8-bit and can also out­put high­erqual­ity10-bit to an ex­ter­nal recorder through the mi­cro-HDMI port. The EVF is won­der­ful, and with videospe­cific fea­tures such as ze­bras and peak­ing, the GH4 pips the EOS-1D C in this cat­e­gory.
