But for larger productions or narrative, I think the VariCam beats it out. While there is a low light race going on in the mirrorless market that beats 5000 by far, the other image quality sacrifices that come with those cameras don't really compare to what you get from the 5000 ISO on the Varicam, which is exceptionally useable footage.
