markm Posted May 18, 2013 Share Posted May 18, 2013 Okay so the hack means you can now record RAW on a DSLR You can also do this on a BMC The difference is the 5D RAW looks beautiful and to my eyes the BMC looks more drab. However neither camera is better than say an Alexa. Basicly you have two different emulsions as Shane Hurlbut might put it. The BMC does also somehow look fuller and not as sharpened. For me the 5D image looks filmic and beautiful out of the box I haven't had any decent RAW BMC footage to play around with in colour correction but I wonder if the BMC image can be colour corrected to be similar to the 5D The magic lantern hack is competition for BMC that was the first to do RAW at a realistic price. As far as I can see this new option is giving us more choice if we want to work exclusively in RAW Now there is zero reason WHY a proper RAW video camera should not be forthcoming from all manufacturers. BMC had a years lead but couldn't deliver and have allowed others to steal what should have been theirs for the taking. mtheory 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
