    What are you using to test with ?

    Looking at the YouTube video you posted a link for, it does not appear that there is anywhere near enough detail to push these CODECs to their limits.

    Back when I owned a couple of GH2 cameras, I tested the patches and memory cards by filming very complex looping scenes from the FutureMark 3D gaming benchmark using a 1080p LCD graphics monitor. This test broke both GH2 patches and memory cards that could not keep up with the detail or could not maintain the high data-rate for long periods of time.

    Here is some of it. Still have a lot work more editing to do. This one shows iso 640, but I also have 160, 1250, 2500, 6400, 12800...

    NICE. Very helpful.
    Looks like MOON T8 and THE END are the winners.
    I had heard about MOON...but never took the time to try it. I will now.

    People will often look at a test like this and think the differences are tiny and hardly matter. That's because no single test can tell the whole story.
    There's another area where extremely high bit-rate hacks make an ENORMOUS difference - RECOVERY.

    Shoot something with bright areas but also a lot of shadow areas first stock, then shoot ultra-high bit-rate.
    Now throw it in your NLE and add a color corrector and boost the gain of the shadows. BOOM the stock will be as noisy and crappy as you would expect...but the ultra-high bit-rate one will allow a significant boost of shadow gain before it breaks up.
    This is a huge difference and a difference that has very serious implications for the final outcome of your video image.

    Maybe sometime I'll shoot THAT test and put it up here.

    My goal is to test for image preference and taste.
    I want to know which patch looks the best to my eyes and figured I would share my test.

    Although I screwed up. Moon T8 did not have a second light source turned on. So moon t8 is invaild. Which is easy to redo for my setup.
    To be honest I'm thinking of a different setup and method but not sure yet. I will probably redo the test.
