Needless to say, it looks extremely good. :)

Yet, the workflow is for huber geeks only and I'm afraid it will stay too geeky for long time, plus reliability will always be a concern.

Unless there will be developments that will make an hacked 5d3 practical to work with, I would use it, only on tests, my own training and personal shooting that does not involve any production costs or involvement of other people time.

 

The new Black Magic with the super 35 sensor will always be a more practical solution. And if time has a value to any of you guys, on the long run BM would also be a less expensive solution as well.

 

BTW, I'm pretty sure canon knew this was going to happens, and they will be very happy to sell more of these cameras and not having to bother to honor any warranty.

Plus it will hardly put a dent on the other Canon expensive camera sales. Who can afford them, have not time to bother with these hacked thingies.

If HDMI becomes possible, or an implementation of something like FFV1 lossless compression to half the data rate for a bit longer record time. (3 minutes would be epic).

 

Something like Motion JPEG 2000 as well for 1:5 (or even 1:10) or similar compression would be able to reduce the data rate enough for 3.6K, though in a 2.35 ratio rather than 2.7. If there's enough processor power though that is.

I'd be extremely happy with 10 Bit Raw!

Anything is better than the current 8 Bit 422 (with the new uncompressed hdmi update).

 

Would it be possible?

Why not team up with Atomos? The Ninja-2 is capable of recording 10Bit.

Think of how much business this would give Atomos! 

 

Canon 5D Mark III + 10Bit Raw 4:2:2 + Atomos Ninja-2.  What a combination!

 

(An instant Blackmagic killer...)

 

A possible dream?

Wow, changes everything.

I'm wondering, where is the limit to all of this?

 

Does anyone know?

 

In a couple of years time when 4000X CF cards might be available am I going to be able to get 3840x2160 raw video? At what point is write speed no longer the limiting factor? 

 

How about when 8000X cards are out? 5760x3240? possible?

hey Andrew, Great job!

 

may i know what CF did you use for this raw footage? (speed and size)

 

on cinema5d video, there's a glitch that occurred and they said it was happened inside the camera..

 

i know this is not the release version, but to make the most of it, can you recommend cf's writing speed that able to cope with the raw footage?

 

btw WELL DONE ML TEAM!!

 

cheers

Nahua, I'm always envious of you when I see your footage. That is some luscious green scenery and beautiful Hawaiian sunset. It's nice to be able to enjoy them both at the same time!

Thanks!  Yeah it's just a hike away really.  Weather was just perfect for a colorful sunset!

Is there some technical reason why the raw images have to be written to the CF card when Canon just released firmware for the 5D3 that gives a clean HDMI output so that a Ninja or Hyperdeck Shuttle can be attached as SSDs are cheaper & larger capacity than 1000x CF cards.

I was thinking the same. I have the Atomos on order and would love to run the footage to that instead of a CF card. Either way, I'm excited about this er development. Where do I spend my money ML?

At 1920x1080 @ 24fps with a 1000x how long can you record till it drops frames?

 

THAT is actually a very good question !

Because all of this will be 90% useless if not long enough recording can be pulled on set for movies ... with actors waiting for the cam to cool down or something weird like that.

How many movies are going to be using a hacked dslr?
