Class: budget cinema cams
Camera Pros: Records proxy video clips onto SD card while shooting Raw. While Raw is good for colour grading, the proxy files are better for editing.
Good selection of LUTs for internal and external monitoring. Colour science is said to be comparable with Arri cameras. Good low light performance.
Camera Cons: When not shooting Raw, the only other option is an 8-bit codec.
Unique Features: Good quality dual pixel auto focus, switches on when it detects a face and off when it doesn’t.
