These tests were carried out at UWE, The University of the West of England in Bristol on the 24th & 25th January 2015.
The base exposure in these shots is with the cameras rated at 5,000 ISO and with a T5.6 aperture.
We looked at several cameras for this sensitivity test but the only camera that came close to the Varicam PL was the Canon C500 which from experience using it on a film told me was good at ISO 2500.
As usual right click on the exposure series for a HD res DPX file.
There are moving images in HD and UHD at the bottom of the page...
