Is the video quality on this camera far superior to video from a NIKON D800 or Canon 5d mark iii. Similar or just slightly superior?
My Canon XF 300 Pro Camcorder shoots excellent quality HD video and has a very good audio system. I do have a 5D MII but not the new 5DMIII. I feel the HD video on the 300 is as good as the 5DMII. The major differences is that the 300 has 3 1/3 sensors making it more difficult to obtain a shollow depth of field. I have a professional video business primarily targeting corporate type video productions so the shollow depth of field issue is not as important. However, I am presenting working on a feature film project and that I plan to shoot with DSLRs or a digital cinema camera. In summary, you will not be disappointed with HD video from 300.
