  1. Although I played with footage a long time ago and loved what I saw. I really just want to test the camera out on a shoot to see how I like it. At the very least I would love to mess around with it in a store to see how I like the handling of it. Hopefully soon.
  2. In the ML forums they said it may be a hardware issue. No matter what SD card you put in you'll still get about 22mbs speed. We have to wait and see.

  4. Not liking that test. Grabbed the frames Andrew uploaded and upscaled to 1280x640. Really nice. Raw also gives you the ability to add some "clarity" giving you a bit more perceived detail in the shot. Looks great to me.  
  5. I try to look at things from multiple perspectives. I shoot for myself and also for clients so I have to look at things in a different light. The practicality of the 5D raw is important to look at. However, not in the total misunderstanding way some professionals are (heating). I think recording time and the CF cards price:footage ratio is something we have to look at. There is practical things to be considered. I can't for the life of me understand why one wouldn't find this breakthrough exciting. It's simply amazing what the ML team has done and it should be treated as such. Where I differ from Andrew is (unless they fix the recording times) I wouldn't have the 5D raw as my A cam. Well even if they fix the recording time I may still use it as a B cam. Reason being not all jobs require raw and I rather not have to shoot h.264. It can be my A cam for certain things that require stealth and doesn't require controlled subjects. Thinking nature type stuff.  So I would go for the BMCC 4k + 5D3 raw. BMCC will handle my main stuff, but I can always go to the 5D for those full frame needing shots or establishing/scenery shots. I can get wider on the 5D and I think I can use that creatively. I'm also a fan of 16mm since I came from shooting on the Bolex and Arri-S. I will still have the pocket camera in my arsenal. Sometimes I need a greater dof etc. So for me I think the 5D raw fits into my system. I agree that the practical aspects need to be considered, but it's very early in the development and this is a free upgrade on a old camera. I never the type to go with one camera so people may not like this post of mine. I find using each cameras' strengths works best for me. I'm not married to any one of them. The dismissiveness of some of the bloggers is frankly annoying.
  6. And a solar battery that charges when not in used along with a in camera anamorphic simulator that'll make the footage indistinguishable from footage shot with anamorphic lenses. While we're at it, how about a in-camera assembly edit feature?
  7. From ML forums: "The best you can with 600D (550D/60D) is: (limited by hardware SD transfer rates) - 960Ñ…540, upscale it to 1280Ñ…720 (24 fps max) - 1280Ñ…400, tight aspect 3.20:1 (24 fps max) In Canon's 720p - lineskipping 1.66Ñ…, so you should upscale to restore correct ratio: - 1280x400 upscales to 1280x664 - near to 16:9 (24 fps max) - 1280x360 upscale to 1280x600 - 2.13:1 aspect - 1280x320 upscale to 1280x533 - 2.40:1 cinemascope aspect It is only 1280px wide, but pretty nice looking though"
  8. For my personal projects I have the same mindset as you. However I do shoot events, music videos, etc for clients. Sometimes clients needs calls for a different camera.
  9. It's only irrelevant if you make it irrelevant. Several situations can be thought of where the C100 will be the better option than the 5D Mark Raw. I don't understand the one camera to rule them all mindset.
  10. In order for this to be successful this feature has to trickle down to the Rebel cameras as well. If the Magic Lantern team can get this on the 550D, 600D, 7D, and 5D Mk II...game over.
