Seems that camera tests can be nominated for an EMMY. Here's the 3rd part covering rolling shutter and skin tones.

If they left some of those ridiculous comments out, it might be worth something... not sure what that something is though.

Rolling shutter = ouch. DSLR's are fine if you don't move the camera left or right. I found that out on my own this past nine months.

Just imagine where we will be in three more years though.

I bet Canon have corrected that issue with their new 4K/HD (actual cine) cam coming out.

I personally found it helpful and enjoyable. This test was less objective than the first two (which admittedly were better), but what do you mean you aren't sure what it is? It was a helpful comparison of most of the big players out there.

It should be obvious. It's outdated already. The Epic is out, the F3 now has Slog, Alexa is changing/updating, the X35 wasn't tested, and so on. The SI2k is a 2/3's camera, but should have been in there too because its so F'ing cool. The comments were also useless outside of the few pros who offered an opinion (and those are the only ones we need to hear) and some of what was said was surely taken out of context, hopefully anyway.

I also didn't see anything showing how horribly the DSLR's "jello" their motion-intense footage which makes them absolutely useless for many applications.

The worst thing about all these endless tests is that people, especially on the lower-end of the production world, will just keep using what they are emotionally tied to either way.

Oh ok now I see what you meant. Yeah I guess you are right, but some of it if only a little is applicable. Too bad they can't test the cameras before they come out somehow haha. But then that's just make me jealous.
