Thank you Pawel, and team. Very helpful in knowing what tool will provide specific results. Your 9x7 rules when it comes to clarity. Perfect for the natural cinematography work. And to see the LF very specifically tuned for a traditional film look. Enlightening.

Hi Everyone,


Here is range of camera tests performed earlier this year for GSCA Innovations (Technical) Committee.

In the line-up we have some cameras that were of interest to the Giant Screen/IMAX community and evaluated for that purpose. These tests is not a “competition”, but rather practical approach to determine strengths and weaknesses of each camera as they greatly vary in price and performance. Due to COVID restrictions I designed the tests in an attempted to push each camera beyond its limits, so that any limitations are clearly visible without having to view the material on IMAX® screen.

If anyone requires source (raw) camera files to perform their own evaluations, please let me know. Comments, as usual, welcome J


Disclosure: my company, Achtel Pty Limited, develops, makes, and offers 9x7 digital cinema cameras and for this reason I have recused myself from most of the tests in order to avoid any potential conflict of interest. Much effort was put to ensure ethical and unbiased approach to the testing.


Kind Regards,
