Yes the Phantom does look more sensitive, but the picture is FAR noisier, the cinespeed has almost no noise, the picture is incredibly clean whereas the Phantom looks more like a video image with about +3 or +6 db of gain, don't quote me on the numbers, I'm just estimating from what I can see from still frames. There's also some kind of weird pattern of black pixels all over the whole image if you take a really close look at a still frame.

Each camera has it's own up and downs. I think if resolution is the most important thing you need then the Phantom HD might be the choice. But If you are more concerned about color then the Cinespeed is better.


If you've got some data with the noise I'd like to compare it with the image data we have from our qualification process of the Phantom HD which we did in December. I believe we are scheduling the Phantom 65 for next week and some EXT and INT shots at our practical and set locations. I pushed the gain up 10db to test the noise level in low light because we have INT night shots with moonlight light from window with warm light from gas heater and lava lamp in a dark room with medium to very dark complexion actors in the scene. We didn't detect any noise problem at all. Maybe this was an earlier prototype. When did you do the tests?

One of your biggest challenges is getting enough light on your subject. It takes a huge amount of light I?ve shot water in a bowl that quickly started steaming. One great tool is the Dedo Cool. It is a high intensity dedo with an amazing cooling system that keeps the heat from being directed at the subject. You may find yourself lighting with 10 Ks, a narrow beam ?Fire Starter? pars. You may also want a dimmer on you lights so you can maintain cooler environment. Here is Innovision?s Dedo Cool site. http://www.innovisio.../dedocool.shtml
