AdoramaTV Pro puts Canon's and Nikon's newest Full Frame pro DSLRs, the 5D Mark III and D800, head to head in a video shootout.

In these real world tests, we compare:
- moiré patterns
- rolling shutter during quick panning shots
- high ISO performance by candlelight and in an urban night scene
- a high contrast scene to test dynamic range

Both cameras used the default "Standard" color profiles and were shot at 24 fps. All 5D Mark III footage was shot in the new ALL-I high bitrate codec, and the Nikon D800 used the highest internal codec, although a 4:2:2 clean HDMI output to an external recorder offers the highest recording quality (clean HDMI out is not available in the Mark III).
