Canon EOS R vs RED & Arri Alexa Cinema Cameras


  1. Jan Hemstad July 4, 2019 at 4:31 pm

    Jonathan and I should have definitely switched places. I look like a giant, lol ?

  2. Linas Vaičiukynas July 5, 2019 at 9:02 pm

    That tint does not look appealing to be honest :/

  3. Peter V July 5, 2019 at 9:13 pm

    This is exactly stuff that I've recently been looking for!!! I have a Sony a6500 and a a7iii. I've been wondering should I look to invest in a Sony Fs7? I film an eclectic array of video. Everything from talking head testimonials, to IG commercials to fight videos to weddings. I ultimately want to do some mini doc style videos like the UFC embedded type of videos.
    Thoughts anyone? Annnnnnd go!

  4. Fabio Melo Luiz July 5, 2019 at 9:37 pm

    Good comparison; And with Lumix S1, when does one come out?

    Congrats on the video!


  5. Richard Collins Photography July 5, 2019 at 10:01 pm

    I'm not gonna lie I prefer the EOS R colors over the cinema cameras regardless of the DR. The skin tones looked better on the EOS R.

    Seems like with Canon you have to choose between mid and shadows or highlights

  8. Dennis Schmitz July 5, 2019 at 10:52 pm

    The EOS-R looks quite oversharpened to me.
    Really love the smooth cinematic image out of RED cameras which cannot be achieved by many other cameras.

    Nice video! That EOS R is impressive!

  11. Eduardo Vilaça July 5, 2019 at 11:50 pm


  12. Markslimm July 6, 2019 at 12:31 am

    You should make a comparison video between the Canon EOS R and Blackmagic pocket cinema camera 4k. Also potato jet is one of the best YouTube channels there!

  13. Sing In Perfect English July 6, 2019 at 1:28 am

    Oh no!!!!!

    I suppose you could make this super epic with some music and cropping ?

  14. Deborah Gallegos July 6, 2019 at 1:51 am

    ‪about to pull the trigger & buy ur new EOS R LUTs. Quick question 1st tho: Do u put on CLog to Rec709 LUT FIRST & then put ur LUTs on as a “look”? Or do u just put ur LUTs on straight to the CLog footage? Thanks!‬

  15. Media Environment July 6, 2019 at 2:21 am

    Congrats for the video, and congrats for sell the LUT's in a honesty way, explaining what they are and saying that they are not magic. Thank you!

    Your team has reached the next level…

    Bmpcc 4k vs eos r

  18. AIO July 6, 2019 at 4:26 am

    2000$ camera vs 100k$+ camera comparison
    Seems fair

  19. Produtora New Vision Brasil July 6, 2019 at 5:42 am


  20. GDR Riley July 6, 2019 at 6:30 am

    now cannon take this sensor and processor and give us another C series that blows the pants of off any camera under 40K.

  21. Bernardas Sakenas July 6, 2019 at 6:54 am

    This guy tries to support Canon so much.

  22. Xavier Schattel July 6, 2019 at 7:11 am

    Or you could just use your BMPCC 4K.

  23. MsMoeb July 6, 2019 at 7:40 am

    Those tests are always retarded. Just clickbaits. Cinema camera aren't just to be compared straight out of camera to others. They are meant to offer you the best possibilities and quality in post production. And they would destroy them each and every time. I know this is obviously sponsored because, hey, who would use canon in 2019, but come on man, you know better than this.

  24. Ben Mc nights July 6, 2019 at 8:23 am

    Great video as always! I would totally purchase an 80d picture profile it you made one !

  25. Austin Hammock July 6, 2019 at 10:57 am

    Canon color is much better

  26. sunay VLOGS July 6, 2019 at 12:31 pm

    I like mostly your comparison videos ????

  27. Mobile Tech Point July 6, 2019 at 1:45 pm

    Mr Accident ?????

  28. Artform Insights! July 6, 2019 at 1:52 pm

    Your comparison videos to RED and ARRI inspired my own comparison on the OnePlus 7 Pro to the RED Scarlet-W. But this new vid of yours packs so much info, I'm ashamed of mine ?! I'm watching yours on a150inch projector and the footage is so well shot and graded I'm jaw-dropped. Everyone should watch this on a big screen! ?

  29. DJ Anamaly July 6, 2019 at 2:18 pm

    Would like to see a comparison with the Fuji cameras

  30. roquista1 July 6, 2019 at 2:37 pm

    please do a video about a good begginer ( cheap ) dslr for video 🙁

  31. Rick Yang July 6, 2019 at 2:53 pm

    EOS R has 2 major issues 1, as you said, lack of dynamic range; 2, rolling shutter on 4k.

  32. MoonDoggie82 - T1GN July 6, 2019 at 3:00 pm

    With the beginning options B looked super green. I didn't like how it looked at all. Would love to check out the EOS R.

  33. Fredi panther July 6, 2019 at 3:54 pm

    Why do you talk like this?

  34. MatthiasAI July 6, 2019 at 4:15 pm

    I know everyone wants to go green.. but that green tint is to strong!

  35. Neil Oler July 6, 2019 at 9:28 pm

    Why is the Alexa kind of green?

  36. My Destiny July 6, 2019 at 9:44 pm

    That’s the importance of knowing the gear you own. By a few seconds of video I already knew the left side one is the Canon by the colors ? great video

  37. Neil Mo July 6, 2019 at 9:46 pm

    Oh no the r is a massive disappointment

  38. salvador vega July 6, 2019 at 10:05 pm

    How many times can we see this same video ?

  39. hkk97 July 6, 2019 at 11:05 pm

    Highly recommend to review zcam e2. It footage on YouTube really look cool

  40. Scott Waldron July 6, 2019 at 11:18 pm

    The Arri was really green looking on my basic LCD screen. On the other hand Canon's tendency is that strong magenta. Maybe the Arri is simply more true-to-life in the default coloration? I'd say Nikon's default out of camera for photo/video is similar to the Arri with a more prominent green cast. I noticed the difference in color faster than dynamic range and DOF differences. Interesting video. 🙂

  41. lalione July 7, 2019 at 12:04 am

    How about canon c200?

  42. Mike Fuhrmann July 7, 2019 at 12:14 am

    Good stuff! Would be great to see a comparison of Blackmagic Pocket 4k vs RED vs Alexa Mini.

  43. Frank Torres July 7, 2019 at 2:01 am

    Hello Jet Boy. What is a Lutz? Is it just a color setting? Can I make my own Lutz? Do I need to learn computer code? Or is it simply a color adjustment with a fancy name? Jet Boy I'm taking to you.

  44. Jacob Voss July 7, 2019 at 3:14 am

    Had some serious color shift issues with the cinema camera… not sure if the grade or issue with alexa

  45. Jake James July 7, 2019 at 3:31 am

    Fuck that camera dude. Had it for a few months and hated it. Great 1080 but I’ve switched over to a BMPCC 4K and 1DC and the ability to match the pocket to my c200 is amazing. Literally the best b cam for c200 users. Just couldn’t get into that EOS R.
    Great video, though!

  46. Jk Bhai July 7, 2019 at 3:36 am

    2019 – CANON EOS R still doesn't do 120fps

  49. ab cd July 7, 2019 at 6:33 am

    We want Sony Xperia 1 vs cinema camera

  50. itsDmoment July 7, 2019 at 6:38 am

    Always hit like before watching ?

  51. MrVGA July 7, 2019 at 9:33 am

    Can you make a video about the EOS 250D?

  52. sijil o July 7, 2019 at 11:43 am

    It fights to become the best

  53. Eclectic Bedlam July 7, 2019 at 12:18 pm

    I just found your channel, and know nothing about filming. Please bear with me and my stupid questions. What is a LUT?

  54. Jinoj Jinoj July 7, 2019 at 12:58 pm


  55. Genkidama SF July 7, 2019 at 2:53 pm

    Great comparison vid! can you do it with canon RP cs Arri Alexa??

  56. Michal Majerník July 7, 2019 at 4:03 pm

    oh hell yeah! BOUGHT THEM. <3

  57. Võ Thụy Ánh Hồng Xuân July 7, 2019 at 4:20 pm

    You should call yourself Potato R 🙂

    The dog falling in the water was hilariously unexpected!

  64. Tanjida Shen July 8, 2019 at 10:28 am

    I know you're Canon fan. I know very easily which was red because red colour has green tint . And most of the situation it look contrasting. It's ok. Why did you review sony and sony cinema camera .like
    Sony venice cine alta. Sony has better dynamic range compare to Canon in terms of log . Sony camera has better details and sharpness compare to Canon .
    Canon sharpness looks plasticy.

  65. VIDEO MARK July 8, 2019 at 11:23 am

  68. navid mehdi July 8, 2019 at 2:30 pm

    Why do cinema camera look green

    Huawei P30

  70. Itsaknightslife July 8, 2019 at 9:34 pm

    Do you guys think that the eos R > a7III for hybrid use? Using it for concert photography and festivals.

  71. Skinny2Swole July 8, 2019 at 10:59 pm

    Reds add a green tint just like Arris.

  72. Anthony Fesce July 9, 2019 at 11:58 am

    And another WTF video from potatojet ?

  73. Suprahead Studio July 9, 2019 at 3:21 pm

    Please do luts for A7iii

  74. Shravan Kashalikar July 9, 2019 at 3:26 pm

    Why does the RED and ARRI look so green?
    I mean sure it looks more so when compared to a magenta-leaning canon color science, but hey, Canon looks much more natural than the other two much expensive and professionally used cinema cameras.
    Why, I really wonder…

  75. Ken’s PAD - photo audio digital July 9, 2019 at 4:29 pm

    Could you do a test for video quality: canon eosR 4k paired with Zeiss 100mm makro lens, recorded onto atomos monitor-recorder, at the highest quality file possible

  76. splashdownmodels July 10, 2019 at 3:32 am

    Ok to be fair your comparing a scarlet to a new canon, so why don't you compare it with the Red Gemini.

  77. 港人港生活 July 10, 2019 at 1:16 pm

    Hey man will you have luts for sony A7iii?

  78. Rghost Hero July 11, 2019 at 1:20 am

    I swear to God the cannon looks better
    The arri Alexa just looks like a green blob and even skin looks green what the hell ??

  79. Jack of Blades July 11, 2019 at 8:11 pm

    Don't forget about the green tint to cinema cameras

  80. Adolfo Usier July 12, 2019 at 2:15 am

    nice channel?

  81. mastertree July 12, 2019 at 9:38 am

    Great Video

  82. Tevin Limon July 13, 2019 at 1:11 am

    What gave it away for me is the cinema footage is much softer straight out of camera.

  83. ekphotography July 13, 2019 at 3:08 pm

    Please do a Zcam E2 comparison! PLEASE!!!

  84. CarOnTheWall July 16, 2019 at 2:34 am

    The first thing I notice in all of the clips is i like the canon color better than the other two.

  85. Davis T. July 16, 2019 at 6:50 pm

    Record externally then repeat the test please

  86. BLC July 20, 2019 at 11:11 pm

    The Red is waaaay green. Ironic.

  87. Tamiya Fan July 22, 2019 at 3:47 pm

    To be honest the Canon looked better in many shots than the RED does. The Green tint is horrible on the RED and it often does not seem to have an image fitting to a camera in its price range. The Arri on the other hand is the clear winner and the footage always looks just right. The more I get into the cinema cameras the more I hate RED cameras. Add to that all the reliability issues users have and now the memory card scandal and I would spend the extra to get an Arri.

  88. Unsolicited Advice July 23, 2019 at 7:43 am

    Aaaand I am back on this side of YouTube, where my unaffordable wishlist camera is the “super cheap/ just bought two of them” camera ?
    Btw, great work! I can’t edit one timeline properly and here you are, seamlessly moving through multiple cameras!

  89. Automatisator Peace July 24, 2019 at 4:15 am

    Too bad that you haven't tested the old BMPCC (12bit CinemaDNG/RAW, 10bit ProRes, good DR…) yet, because it has a similar cinematic look to arri alexa and was (still is) used more often next to arri alexa.

  90. Dan Campbell July 24, 2019 at 5:55 pm

    What if the EOS R is a bit out of my price range (I'm poor), is the M50 a solid replacement as an entry-level camera? I know (from watching your vids) that the M50 doesn't handle 4K very well, but for vlogging?

  91. BozDuke13 July 29, 2019 at 1:41 am

    Imagine If you compared the A7iii

  92. Ian Corzine August 18, 2019 at 8:25 pm

    Really great video — thanks for your help with the EOS R color profile!

  93. PBFilms August 21, 2019 at 12:25 am

    Thanks for this! Excellent! Also worth mentioning that if you also use a cinema line of Canon (C200, C300, etc), they play very nicely together in post. The colors match so well that it's very hard to tell which camera is being used. I shoot with a C200 as my main camera, EOSR as B both shooting C-Log. I have also been using my EOSR as my main camera for many jobs due to it's size and functionality.

  94. nath deeanandlarp August 26, 2019 at 4:49 pm

    Hi Gene thank you for such great and informative video. I just bought Eos R + Atomos ninja V and i have some questions. I know i can output 10bit 25p 4k. But when i try to do 1080p 25p out it wouldn’t let me it only outputs 1080 50p. So therefore the EOS R cannot output 1080 at 25fps to the Atomos is that correct? Thank you so much in advance. I have been trying to make it output 25p for hours and still couldn’t do it ??

  95. David Makvandi September 12, 2019 at 2:05 am

    I think you already mentioned this in another video, but do you shoot your youtube videos in 1080p or 4k? Also All-i or IPB?

  96. Simwanza Liswaniso September 24, 2019 at 11:10 pm

    i really enjoy your videos. May you please compare the RED and the Nikon Z6 to an external recorder.. Thank you

  97. Jordan Sarkisian September 30, 2019 at 9:18 pm

    They're definitely catching up, just saw someone sell their C200s for 2 EOS R cameras. Stop nerfing your cameras Canon, 1080p 120fps and FF 4K ain't the reason people step up to a cinema camera:/

    The Arri is wild, bit the color science kinda sucks… Compared to the canon

    What lens did you use with the canon eos r to shoot this video
