Shoot RAW Video with Canon 60D - Magic Lantern

Canon 60D RAW VideoAccording to marekk (ML forum member) Canon 60D can record RAW video with latest Magic Lantern firmware, take a look at the details below written by marekk

Hi all 60D users 🙂

I prepared special version of autoexec.bin like 550D user mk11174 and RAW video works now on 60D 🙂 This ML version has only few options enabled. I’ve got no skills to fix 60D’s boot problems with full ML package with modules and tcc enabled so I removed everything except ability to record raw videos and load modules.

The Canon 60D is available under $699 body only and $800 with 18-135mm lens at Amazon, So its a great news that you can shoot RAW videos with a $800 camera.

The max resolution available with the firmware is 1734×976 (16:9), but it will only get you a few seconds of video, even with a fast, x100 card.

Recommended Canon Lenses for Portrait Photography

Recommended portrait lenses for photography, for beginners I will recommend canon 50mm f/1.8 lens, for semi-pro and professional photographers 50mm f/1.4 and f/1.2L lens is highly recommended.
Traditionally, photographers have relied upon moderate telephotos for portraits, lenses such as the 85mm f/1.8 USM, the 85mm lenses allow you to back off a little bit from your subject, and still produce frame-filling shots while minimizing the amount of background distractions.
Zoom lenses such as 17-55mm f/2.8 is ideal for portrait and wedding photography for APS-C DSLRs (T3 / 1100D , T3i / 600D, 60D and 7D). Professional L-series Lenses such as 24-70mm and 70-200mm zooms, are versatile choices that allow you to back off and also tend to throw backgrounds out of focus, highly recommended for Full frame DSLRs like 5D series and 1Ds series.
