I own a 7D and a number of very prime lenses, some pretty sharp ones. I still find the 7D footage not sharp enough and suffering from weird artifacts (actors having blue streaks in their hair, pattern noise, et cetera), i get some very plastic/fake looking pictures from time to time. Nevertheless i have found a workflow that suits me at the moment.
Last week i have decided to buy a second camera for budget music video production. My first idea was to buy a second 7D, but i still wonder why it is that some prominent DSLR filmers, like Philip Bloom and others, still use the 5D MKII for recent assignments.
So, i wonder if there are readers here that have used both cameras and can comment on this, or at least answer the poll below.
REMARK: consider picture quality – price/budget, available framerates and other options not taken into account.
I am looking for sharper images in the sense of better/more detail. Even better resolution (7D is barely HD when it comes to acutal recorded lines).
