*** Just did some time tests on 32gb card. 1920x1080 at 23.976 gives you 6mins and 10secs of recording time. I have about 22-37 dropped frames in that time with a Toshiba 1066X Card
I'll receive some 64gb Komputerbay cards soon and will test those next.

The Magic Lantern hack team brings us 14bit raw video to most of the Canon DSLR range. This is on par with RED and Alexa quality. But what is it like to shoot with this hack?
After finding the right resolution that the cards could handle, shooting was not much different than normal DSLR video. The 5x zoom is reserved for crop video so one can't use that setting to aid with focus. The 10x zoom still works with this hack enabled. It's very nice to not worry about white balance, as you choose this later when editing the DNG raws. I hope in the official release version you can delete clips in camera as now you're stuck with what you shot until you delete on a computer. These raws eat cards like nothing. I used 2 16gb Lexar 1000X, that gave me stable 1920x960. When those ran out I got 1920x720 with a 32gb 60mb/s sandisk card.
The footage was about 8 mins and ate 45gigs or so!
The workflow requires you to export each raw video file manually into dng's. Then bring them into after effects to correct and convert to cineform, prores or your preferred codec. Slow process.
Final thoughts: Stunning image. I would shoot a music video this way perhaps . I'll use this for some b roll. But I'll still use my c300 80% of the time.
ISO ranges in this video from 160- 1250

Thanks Magic Lantern team for an amazing hack
