So far, soo awesome. Sure there's a learning curve, but it really is no big deal once you get used to the workflow. Here's a screengrab from my very first shot with it...

It looks very good @mercer, how many minutes of continue recording are you getting?, and which CF card are you using?

Thanks. Not horrible for a first attempt. Do you mean how many minutes of raw can I get on a cf card? Or do you mean how long will it continuously record? If you mean the former, on a 64GB card I think you get around 12 minutes. If you mean the latter... then continuous...

And I am using a Lexar 1066 160MB card.

Lexar is the way to go then, 12 minutes continuos is more than ok, like using 400 ft in a 16mm camera….any frame drop?

Here's a test I did 3 years ago with ML and the 5D3 w/ 24-105 F4L (1080p). Handheld using a simple rig and Kamerar QV-1 viewfinder. Wanted to see how well I could crash zoom and manual focus while walking around. Processed in AE and ACR (some color shifts, but looked OK to me overall). There's something special about the 5D3. I might do a test comparing to 1DX II to see if there's something with the color.

Looks nice. What I like about the footage I have seen from it is that although there is definite canon color mojo there, it also has a hint of Alexa to it.

Only because I was stupid and forgot to set the CF card as the recording card, so the raw was being recorded to the sd card instead... constant frame drops. Once I got my head out of my ass, it's been smooth sailing. No issues whatsoever. Also when I was shooting with the 50D, I would get max between 65MB and 70MB but usually closer to 60MB. With the M3, I'm easily getter in the 90s.

I think Andrew said he is getting his 5D3 back tomorrow, so you may just get your wish. 

Also, I decided to process some of the clips through MLRawViewer and even though it took forever, I processed them as Arri Log-C and with a simple Arri LUT it looked great.

ohhhhhh (jaw dropping)……didn`t know you can do that…..this is really, really interesting……if only DPAF could be added…..by the way, can you send through the mini-hdmi port a signal to an external monitor?, of course using ML.

Man, I am so glad I kept my 5DIII. Now this makes me question why I even need a 1DC.

I think two 5DIII's and an 80D (once that ML hack is ready) would give a lot of shooters everything they need.

Great stuff guys.  I can't believe I'm thinking of upgrading from the 5d2 to the 5d3 after so many years. 

Can anyone that have shots showing skintones share some more DNGs? that's where the real magic needs to happen.  Only seen a few.

thx!

It's still a bit early, but might be a good idea to eventually start a sub forum here for ML video - as we have with the Samsung hack, especially if these two new developments (lossless RAW compression and the new crop mode) get ported to other Canon models. I installed ML on a second hand 5DII I bought a couple of years ago the first day I had it, so can't wait for a nightly with this new stuff to appear at some point for that older camera. I was thinking about buying a VAF filter for it to ease moire, but probably won't bother now with 1:1 recording. Unlike Canon's own EF-S lenses, I know that my Canon-fit Tamron 18-50mm does not clash with the 5DII mirror, so some of the independent crop lenses might be a good format match-up for ML crop video.

What I would like to see is someone do a shot test comparing it with old version of ML and maybe another camera. Everything looks good from what I have seen but I would like to see some context
