Canon 5D Mark III - H264 compression vs Magic Lanterns 14 Bit RAW

Take a look between the comparison between H264 compression vs Magic Lanterns 14 Bit RAW, RAW video look better to me…. see the video below

An ISO test comparing Canons H264 compression vs Magic Lantern’s 14 Bit RAW hack.

First I converted the RAW files with ML’s raw2dng.

  • Next I dragged the files into Photoshop which opened up Adobe Camera Raw.
  • I selected the first image and used the auto white balance setting which got rid of the heavy magenta tone.
  • Then I synchronized the additional files, and exported them as 16bit tiff files.
  • First I tried to use QuickTime 7 to create an image sequence, but it render the video with incorrect color.
  • So instead of QT I ended up using Final Cut Pro X to create an image sequence to a ProRes 422 HQ output.

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.

Magic Lantern - Raw Video from the Canon 5D Mark III is Now Possible

Magic Lantern  will soon bring a new firmware update for Canon 5D Mark III to enable RAW video output is now available, With canon usual firmware loaded in the 5D Mark III you get video as a compressed H.264 stream, rather than the pure Raw video.

A Magic Lantner forum member (laurenco) shouted that he was able to get 1928×902 RAW output, but video stops after 700 frames due to limited buffer,

I did a quick test in Raw mode. I wanted to see how much higher I could do above 720p. I tried 1928×850 and 1928×902. I think it was 902. 902 the buffer would fill up and video stops after 700 frames or so. At 850 I am able to get continuous recordi
