iPhone 4S vs. 5D mk II

iPhone 4S / Canon 5d MKII Side by Side Comparison from Robino Films on Vimeo.


There has been a lot of talk about the video features within the new iPhone 4S. It’s 1080p camera has been claimed to be able to shoot 4k quality video. To see how the iPhone 4S truly competes, Robino Films created a shot for shot comparison video.

Even though The 5D still comes out on top its hard to deny the quality of the iPhone’s sensor. Once you start to think about the amount of control the 5D offers and the capability of having a much larger depth of field, it’s really no question which is better. Obviously, I don’t believe that’s the point of the video. The test isn’t exactly a scientific test (the video is encoded for vimeo.) But it’s interesting to see how a camera phone’s image quality is truly starting to compete with a standard pro DSLR.
