iPhone 4S / Canon 5d MKII Side by Side Comparison

***You can download the full 1080p version of this video for a more accurate presentation. Here's a "fair" test between the iPhone 4S and the Canon 5D MK II. I made a little rig that allowed me to shoot both cameras at the same time side by side.

I'd be interested to know why the electronic billboard on the 4S flickers and the 5D does not? Thanks

New Video Codec Coming: H.265 Is Next

New Video Codec Coming: H.265 Is Next | Backpack Filmmaker | Scoop.it

Excerpted and edited from original intro: A new video format is on its way, which could alleviate some of the strain on those networks by delivering high-quality video with half as many bits.

 

The new High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) spec, also referred to as H.265, should be a lot more efficient than H.264, which is the format of choice for most IP-enabled devices and applications.

 

The format, which is being developed by the ISO/IEC Moving Pictures Experts Group (MPEG) and the ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG), is expected to need 25 to 50 percent fewer bits for the delivery of H.264 video of the same quality.

 

The good news is that H.265 is on its way to standardization.

 

The bad news is that it likely can’t come quickly enough. The spec is expected to be circulated for comment next February, with some initial applications taking advantage of it in early 2013.
