    I have had the C100 and currently have the C100 mk2. Both are very clean, when used properly. You said you shoot everything manually, but you didn’t tell us what ISO setting you used. The “native” ISO on that camera is 850, not 320.

    I started with Pinnacle, which allowed you to produce "finished" videos quite easily,  but fairly quickly graduated to Sony Vegas Studio, and then Sony Vegas Pro, which I like very much. Seems SVP doesn't put as much of a strain on your computer resources, as some to the other NLEs, so it can work pretty well on a laptop, as well as a PC. Sony Vegas also has built-in tutorials. And, this is new….SVP will now be able to open and read VEG projects (that's what they call them) that were done in Sony Vegas Studio, so you can go back and improve on some of your earlier projects if you upgrade the software.

    If you want to represent your brand in a positive way, the more professional, the better. If you don't care about the public's perception is of you, then just do "whatever." But don't ask me to do "whatever" for you. Because what I do, reflects my brand, as a content producer.

    Intuitively, I felt that the 5D MK2 would produce the better result. I was kind of hoping there was a “numerical” answer to my question above, as opposed to a subjective evaluation. I intend to do just such a side-by-side test later this week. I’ll report back on my subjective results.

    An additional consideration…I do quite a bit of aerial video. This is where my concern about the rolling shutter enters the picture. When doing aerial video, there is quite a bit of motion, in spite of the fact that I am using two gyros on the camera. Last thing I need is “jello” on the image.

    The “Great Camera Shootout” was not comparing DSLRs to a true video camera. It compared them to film cameras.

    I have both the XHA1 and the 5DMK2. If I take the depth of field/film look aspect out of the equation, in terms of sheer resolution, clarity, bit depth (useful for grading), which of the two cameras will produce the better quality video?

    I’ve asked this question of a number of people, and everyone seems to “dance around” an answer.

    Thanx!
