GoPro: Hero 3+ Black Vs. Canon 5D Mark 2

Watch the two videos below regarding a property shot for marketing. One video is done with the GoPro Hero 3+ Black and the other is done with the Canon 5d Mark 2








The footage from the GoPro was put through and edited via the GoPro studio software. This took out the fisheye effect and also gave me great control over editing the Protune Video capture.

    1. The lower footage is the 5D MK II and first footage is the GoPro :-)

  2. almost certain, top one is gopro and lower one is canon, it has a bit more detail and the color is much better in the canon, but to be perfectly honest in a workflow and job like this, people wouldnt even notice it that much, I do think it's a viable solution for someone starting in property video. Nicely done Dom!

  3. I think the bottom one looks choppy with the frame rates and blown out exterior whites. I'm going with the canon at the top. Only because of the one scene that has been cut short ;)

  4. I prefer the colouring of the Canon shots (bottom video) although that can maybe be fixed with Gopro shots as well. Overall the canon is better quality but wideness of the Gopro lends itself nicely to a few of the shots. Also when viewing on the internet I can't see to much of a quality difference. I wouldn't be afraid to use it. I would like to see how well you could try and get the same white balance in both of them.

  5. The one on top is go-pro based on the fact it is a wider shot than the canon. It is impressive to see that the go-pro has better color and dynamic range than the canon.

  6. After viewing both of them side by side, I would definitely say that the bottom one is the Canon for the same reasons other people have listed above. The 2nd shot (going through the front door ~10 seconds in) was the big give away but otherwise they were close.

  7. I would say definitely the Canon is bringing the quality up a level. On a tablet viewing or full HD monitor not peeping pixel, the GoPro will do the job that is happy to go with if you cannot afford the Canon 5D MkII

  8. Wow, only a 'fag paper' between them? To be honest, I'm to sure which one, I'm going to guess the bottom one is the go pro because the white door was all blown out but i'll wait and see!

  9. The panning with such a wide angle as the GoPro made me feel a little queasy.

  10. Which ever the gopro is, if you tell me that both of them where shot with a DSLR, I would believe you>

  11. The top video is certainly much wider (so assuming it's the GoPro), but it also looks more yellow. Not sure if I would notice if both videos weren't "side by side" but pretty noticeable how they are right now. Pause at :17 and/or :21 to see how much more yellow the top video is. I like the wider angle of view, but the color looks better and more natural in the bottom video. Then again, I wasn't there....maybe the walls actually ARE that yellow?

  12. Canon defo a nicer image, more professional somehow, not sure if it's dynamic range or what but the top one looks a bit dull. But that wider view sure is better when you're trying to show a room and make a house look spacious!

  13. Playing both at the same is testing my sanity.

  14. Hi Dom - Could you shoot with the 15mm fish eye on the canon and remove / correct bent lines in post to achieve a similar angle of view? Have you tried the Sigma 12-24 or the Samyang 14?
