5D MK III 24FPS RAW is here!


Recommended Posts

Oh man!!!


Here's an even more recent quote from Alex:


"Heh, people got excited without even knowing the big news: g3gg0 just discovered how to use the DMA cropping routines, which just made possible RAW video recording at 1920x1080 at 24fps on 1000x cards."


:D  :D  :D

I think it could easily rival the C100/300, although ProRes would be better for most people.


Plus I don't know if they can get 1920x1080 RAW, that might simply be too much for the buffer, I don't think everyone wants to shoot 2.35:1. Although the detail resolved is very good, they could do 1663x940 (which the buffer can handle) and simply scale it up to 1080 and I'm sure the detail would still be better than stock.

According to nofilmschool's latest article they can do 1920x1080 @ 24 fps on 1000x cards, as well as 1440x1080 for the 2x anamorphic shooters. Good times for 5dmk3 owners. Magic Lantern surely deserve the "magic" in their name :)

This all came out around right around the not-so-well-recieved release of the 5D3 firmware upgrade, which makes we wonder: did Canon slip some fimrware hints out into the wild? 


But I guess it doesn't matter, it's good news either way. Well done ML and friends. I didn't think it was possible, and it looks like i was totally wrong.

I've been testing this today.


Magic Lantern are geniuses and the image is STUNNING

Just for the record NFS bug the hell out of me. They put absolutely minimal effort into their posts in an effort to get traffic. Everything is cut and paste from an internet browsing session and none of it is actual hands on experience. In other words, always someone else's hard work they are selling ad space around.


Frustrating to be testing and shooting with something, and for the surprise to be spoilt with such a poor attention grabbing article.


Forget 1440x1080 you can do 1920x1280 to the card at 24fps for anamorphic, I'm getting data rates upwards of 90MB/s to the 1000x CF card.

      I single-handedly shot an entire narrative short film during the first lockdown, using the original BMPCC. The camera performed magnificently but I did have it fully rigged out. Shot using two SLR Magic primes - 10mm T2.1 and the 17mm T1.6. A one-person crew and one-mother cast, this is a film featuring my poor mum, who’s never acted, and a very, very unlikely hero…

      Jean-Luc Godard once said “All you need for a movie is a gun and a girl.” My mum doesn’t speak very good English, so I had to do without dialogue. I didn’t have a gun so we had to do without that too. We couldn’t leave the house, so I shot it all there. And I had no crew to help me, so I did everything myself.
      If anyone has any feedback or questions I'm always happy to hear!

      Selling a excellent condition 5D Mark III with Canon 50mm f1.8, battery grip with hand strap, 5 batteries, AC wall adapter, 3 CF cards, and 2 chargers. The 5D has Magic Lantern preinstalled for RAW shooting and upgraded operating system. I can also remove the Magic Lantern if need be. The camera is only 2 years old, has been mainly used in a studio setting shooting only video, and taken extremely great care of. It has less than 6,000 shutter count and is in like new condition. The Canon 50mm 1.8 is the hard to find older model with the better focus ring. The lens is in excellent condition, with no scratches, fungus, or oil on aperture blades. Set comes with 3 CF cards, a 64gig, and two 32gig cards.  $2000 OBO

      Shot this promo back in August on a 5D3.

      Using a Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 and a Canon 70-200 f/2.8

      It was professionally graded in Baselight Studio, the colorist was very surprised when he found out what it was shot on.

      Let me know what you think or shoot a question!

      Here is a short film I shot and directed called "It's My Party" (if you couldn't tell from the big pink letters). I just posted it online Monday and I'm looking for feedback. After my last film which was 20 minutes long and about 10 different locations, I wanted to get back to something more simple that focused on character rather than plot. Anyway, if you have a few minutes check it out and let me know what you think. I hope you enjoy it!
