There are 3 performance classes of Canon camera for raw video. Which should you use and what image quality can you expect?
Yesterday on April 1st, in amidst the usual click bate Magic Lantern announced a 4K video module for the 5D Mark III. Nobody believed them.
It turns out they weren’t joking.
Some of my favourite images are from cinema cameras and DSLRs from which attention has long since drifted elsewhere!
Rest assured some of the older cameras on this list are better than any of the latest and greatest (if not in terms of usability then in terms of having an analogue film-like feel that screams “cinema” and not “digital”).
Here are my top 5.
(Thanks to A1ex for the tip off). Developer “leegong” of Nikon Hacker has made enormous progress in getting raw video from the live view function of the Nikon D5100. Early builds of the patch output raw frames to the card and A1ex of Magic Lantern has written a prototype / test DNG converter.
