Visual Impact now stocks, the Sony’s F5, F55, Canon C300 and Olypmus i-Speed cameras. We have shot extensive tests on the Sony F55 and F5. These tests resulted in seven short videos presenting our findings.

Visuals used the Assimilate Scratch system to measure and compare the F5, F55 and Alexa cameras. The test focusing on Dynamic range were impressive and revealed a very good sensor in the F5 and F55. These tests will be followed by more extensive tests to be published soon.
