Canon 5d Mark Iii Test Video

By | 17/08/2022

The Catechism 5D Mark III has get a truthful cinema camera. That’s a bold statement, only some of the footage that is currently being shot with the new 14-scrap RAW Magic Lantern hack is admittedly night and twenty-four hour period when compared to 8-flake H.264 footage recorded in-camera, and in that location is no dubiousness information technology rivals much more expensive cameras only in sheer image quality. We’ve got some impressive samples from cinema5D, Luke Neumann, as well as a few others below. Click through for the head-exploding videos.

Bank check out Luke Neumann’south first exam with information technology, and if you want to download some original DNG files, head on over to his website:

Video is no longer bachelor: world wide

Here is an impressive comparison by Saad Rabia, taking a expect at the hacked Catechism 5D Marking III, unhacked Mark III, and the GH3 (night footage shot at ISO 1,250):

Here is a larger frame catch of the night shot (click for larger, you tin as well download both videos from Vimeo to meet the full 1080):

Here is a sample from cinema5D (y’all tin also find DNGs on their site):

There are a few bugs to work out at the moment, especially since this is so early in the life of the hack. Right at present there is no sound in-camera and clips are limited to 4GB (which is most a infinitesimal of footage), but the focus has been on really getting information technology working and stable before moving on to the other issues. The 4GB limit is not really fifty-fifty a hardware limitation, information technology’s only the style the code is at the moment, so we will definitely run into longer clip lengths. For the best quality, 1000x speed cards are recommended, similar the Lexar 1000x cards (some people have besides recommended the Komputarbay 1000x cards, but I accept no history with the company, so you’ll have to take someone else’s word for information technology).

Many accept been asking almost different cameras. Unless you lot’re a tester, y’all’ve just got to wait it out and see what will happen. I know it is working on cameras like the 5D Mark Two and T3i, but none of them are currently able to do the full 1920 x 1080 (and they may never be able to), with the T3i coming in much lower resolution. Menu speed is really the issue for whatsoever of the cameras that are SD bill of fare merely, and it may never exist possible to get results anywhere about what the Mark III is currently getting.

If you lot want to endeavor it yourself, information technology’southward definitely non an piece of cake process getting ML onto your camera, then I would advise most people look until Magic Lantern releases a complete build, which I imagine will happen in a matter of weeks. Magic Lantern has a forum defended to workflow, and cinema5D too put together their own guide for those adventurous folks who would like to try it out.

Stay tuned as we will have much more on this, including what this might mean for you and other photographic camera purchases.
