    While I was considering to sell my X5 and buy X5R instead, I thought that MicroSD card recordings on these two cameras are exactly the same. To my best understanding X5R just makes additional uncompressed RAW recording to its SSD when it is inserted. I thought that X5R without SSD performs exactly as X5, so I hoped to use X5R on some occasions just with MicroSD card to speed up my workflow when RAW is not of importance...

    After watching this video from Cinema5D I got confused - as they show that these two cameras, when both set at default D-Log ISO100, look significantly different - X5R PROXY (saved on MicroSD card) recording seems to be of totally flat and almost "plaster" look without detail, while X5 recording looks a bit oversharpened. Please look at their video:

    Did anyone of forum members get opportunity to personaly compare X5R SD recording to X5 recording? Is there really such difference as in this Cinema5D test?
