    These two camera manufacturers have a pretty different look to my eyes, so I wouldn't want the headache of matching them if you do a lot of multicam. Since you need photos too, I would definitely lean more toward R5/6 and live with the lesser codecs for the extended run times and/or use an external recorder when you really need to let it run for a super long time. Those are situations where it would typically be on sticks anyway, right? So, a recorder is not a huge nuisance in that situation and it can still be stripped down for grabbing quick lightweight b-roll and photos.

    You might want to reach out to Boosh. He has a C300 MKIII and S1H combo and was seeking some advice about how to match them a few weeks ago. He might be able to give you some insight about how well they are matching for him.

    I own an S1h and while I think it’s the most capable camera of its formfactor I wouldn’t use it as a b cam for a canon I would go with a canon solution to avoid matching problems.

    This is an excellent point and something to consider. We do have a Ninja V as well, although I'd love to stop having to plug things into mirrorless cams. It is what it is I guess.

    I think it's reasonable. You really should trading your C200

    Interesting perspective, are you an owner of either camera currently? I'd love to hear your thoughts on why.

    They’re such different cameras!

    If you’re not shooting raw, imo get the S1H. I find the APS-C crop mode on the S1 better than .mp4 on the C200, or at least not too different.

    I rarely use the raw for what I mostly do with the C200, which is using it as a b-cam during interviews with the C300 III. I need longer run times during those, recording anywhere from 2-4 hours in a full day. So having that much raw footage to store and go through is not what I'm looking for.

    Any B-roll is typically shot on the C300 III. So I don't necessarily use the raw when picking up the "pretty" shots either. I have another camera for that.

    So this is good feedback and helpful to hear. Thanks! I think I'm going to get a S1H in for rental and try using cinematch or just checking to see how closely I can get it to match with the C300 III in general.

    Yeah I'd rent it and check it out. It's an impressive camera for sure.

    On the other hand, does't the C70 have the same sensor as a C300 III and a high quality 10 bit mode? I like what Panasonic is doing, I prefer the EVA1 to the C200 and I like the S1 and S1H. But if you have a C300 III as an A cam a C70 seems the logical b camera.

    Ditto to C70 as the logical choice
