Pocket 6K vs Arri Alexa Mini/ RED Raven / URSA Mini Pro ֠Cinema Camera Tests

It’s that time of the year again when I test out various cameras next to each other to see how they perform.

These camera tests that I do every year are not so much to see which camera is the best. I say that because there is no perfect camera. Instead each camera has it’s strengths and weaknesses. For certain types of work a bigger camera might be better while for another job the camera that maybe has slight loss in image quality but one that is a lot smaller and lighter might be a better tool. That is why there is no camera that has it all. Still it is always good to test out different cameras next to each other to see how they perform visually and if the image can be matched between these different cameras in a single project.

Like in previous years, I am once again testing not necessarily the latest and hottest cameras to each other but rather cameras that I am interested in using. This year I chose the new Pocket 6K camera because it seems like a great B-Cam to my URSA Mini Pro. I also chose two other cameras that I use often on different projects. Those two are the Arri Alexa Mini and the RED Raven cameras.

Before I show you guys all the tests I did I will first just show the different shots I got on each of the cameras and let you guys decide which you think looks best. Please let me know in the comments section before your pick and which camera you think it is. In the following days I will update this post and put the other test as well as release the audience favorite camera from these tests.
