Canon C300 noise tests

Posted by Rover on February 20, 2011 at 7:35 PM

herewith noise tests we shot comparing the arri alexa, canon eos C300 and a canon eos 5dmkii

all the below tests were shot in the following conditions:


tungsten lighting using locked off cameras.

same inclinattion, height, lens (zeiss 85mm), distance from subject.

5d shooting cinestyle colour

C300 shooting canon log C

arri alexa shooting log C pro res 4444

uniform exposures.


we shot at various iso ratings and i have found the C300 to be cleaner then both the 5d and arri alexa in all colour channels.

no filtration or LUT applied. all footage was straight off the chip with no adjustments whatsoever. allthough contrast and colour have not come into this test I simply am looking at the noise applicable at certain iso ratings and seperating the primary colour channels to see where degredation occurs

from the below it bocomes pretty apparent that the c300 has the ability of shooting clean images to at least 6400 iso. when comparing the arri alexa to the canon c300, i find much cleaner images out of the canon c300.

i have only had my camera for 48 hours but already am amazed at the image quality and camera design and ergonomics.the camera appears strange but so far the ports, body design and handling is awesome. the fully ratating lcd panel and right handle make the camera easy to adjust to suite a wide variety of rigs or applications. from low weight without lcd, handle or right hand grip to a fully functional camera using 19mm rod support with a small riser, this camera I feel is going to do good things.

my daily rental on this unit will be R3000 per day (around 400 usd) and will be supplied with cards and batteries. i have a full set of Zeiss ZE lenses to compliment the kit and all the mattebox and follow focus support too.
