Check out this LG V30 vs. 8K RED Weapon camera comparison
Sep 28, 2017

Yesterday HBO's Director of Photography to take the LG V30 for a spin and today we get a comparison between the smartphone and the 8K RED Weapon movie camera.


Youtuber Parker Walbeck decided to recreate the Walter Mitty Longboard Scene by taping the phone right next to the RED Weapon and shooting simultaneously.

The whole setup is mounted on a drone and all sorts of professional camera equipment come into play, as we see from the behind the scenes shots. There is also a $150 gimbal stabilizer used for panoramic shots, so not everything is strictly professional.


Of course, this is not done in Auto mode. Slight adjustments like post-editing and color correction are easily made with additional software like Adobe Premiere Pro and DaVinci Resolve, but LG also deserves credit for making such actions available to the end user via the LG Cine LOG feature in the camera app settings.

Check out the actual video below.
