GeekBeat.TV #441 | Digital Camera Showdown: Nikon D800 vs. Canon 5D Mk III Cali Lewis April 28, 2012 Episodes 45 Shares Google+ 14 Twitter 18 Facebook 7 LinkedIn 6 Reddit 0 Pin It Share 0 Buffer 0 45 Shares × The Photographers and Their Cameras Trey Ratcliff and John P. are both great photographers and both very dedicated to their own camera models. Trey shoots with a Nikon D800 and John uses a Canon 5D Mk III. Frame Rate Shootout Which camera can capture more frames per second? And maybe more importantly, which sounds cooler when it shoots? Down and Dirty with the Specs Are pixel counts important past a certain point? What about color depth, weight, cost, and light sensitivity? Video Capabilities Both are very respectable video cameras, but does the Canon have an edge over the Nikon here? Looking to the Future Is the DSLR a dying breed? Trey thinks that may be the case, but John sees a good future, particularly for higher-end DSLRs. Sample Photos John and Trey took a few photos around the studio with the same subjects, lighting, and similar angles.
