  2. NOTES: For more accurate results, hit the 'Download' tab and download 'Original .MOV file'

    Stuttering in the lower angle 5D3 shots was from boat vibrations. This is not from the hack and can be fixed with warp stabilizer, but I wanted to keep full resolution in those shots.

    Also, the power lines aren't aliasing in the 5D3 footage as some have noted...they are painted with black & white stripes: ryanlightbourn.com/uploads/5d3raw/power_lines.jpg

    Shot back & forth between the two cameras on the same day.

    Minor grading done in ACR & RCX to match contrast. No sharpness added. Scarlet footage shot in 4k, downscaled 50% to 1080p.

    Lenses used: Tokina 11-16mm & Zeiss 25mm 2.8 (both with Formatt 1.2 ND)

    My thoughts browsing through the raw footage: Scarlet has slightly more of a filmic/pro look (maybe due to having more dynamic range overall?) and a slight edge in sharpness. 5D3 raw has less noise, and holds more detail in the shadows. Download 1080p version for a better comparison.

  3. Here is my comparaison of RAW vs H.264 shot with a Canon 6D, it's just to show how sharp the raw is from the start, and how well it can handle color correction compared to the H264.

    The problem with the 6D is the moire which is more visible in RAW than with the H264 since it's sharper, and the other problem is the resolution, we can't shoot 1080p. Then there is the audio problem which I didn't really check yet, I read somewhere that we can start recording with a beep sound for external recording.

    The magic lantern version used in this video is from may 2013, and it's still an alpha version going through a lot of testing, it's not a final version, so maybe it's might become even better in few weeks, months, we can donate and hope.

    Thanx to all of the developers of Magic Lantern.

    The conclusion is my opinion, from my needs, the 6D is good enough in H264 when correctly set up and the scene correctly lit up, it's also good enough in RAW for many people at is it right now, but for me it's not so I guess I'll sell mine and get a 5Dm3 instead.

    If raw is important for you, then get a 5Dmark3 or a Blackmagic Camera or a Digital Bolex (looks promising but no footage yet), they are all around the same price.

  4. Canon 60D Raw and h.264 comparison
    ***MORE TESTS COMING SOON***
    I shot the Raw files at 1280x544 and the h.264 at 1920x1080 (Cropped in post)
    ISO between 320, 640 and 1250
    I was able to shot at 1280 (2.35) for about 410 frames each shot and then it "automagically stopped"
    Memory used was a cheap Transcend Class 10 card

  5. Here's my first quick 60D RAW test.
    Used myself as subject.
    Shot at 1472x626, 23.976FPS which gave me 315 frames per record. at Aspect 2.35.1, ETTR off, ISO 100, WB 4300K, shutter 50.
    Canon 28mm opened all the way at 1.8.
    WB shift A3, G3.
    Vision Color PS
    Used PS CS6 for basic cc and Premiere pro 5.5 for CG w Colorista 2.
    Any question on my workflow for PC just ask.
    I'm very pleased with quality and clarity compared to non RAW, so much easier to CC and CG.
    I call my cam the cinema 60D now.hehe
