    See the related article on cinema5D: http://www.cinema5d.com/news/?p=17976 This is how we hacked the 5D: http://c5d.at/1o4 Today we already published a test video of the impressive Canon 5D mark III RAW module enabled by the Magic Lantern hack and a guide to get it working yourself. Here's a side by side comparison of the 5D mark III with 14bit RAW 1080p together with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera with 2.5K RAW so you can see how the two cameras differ. What we did: We went out with a Canon 5D mark III that had the Magic Lantern RAW module hack on it and shot with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera in RAW mode alongside. We used the Canon 24-105mm lens on the 5D while we used the Tokina 16-50mm on the Blackmagic. Native ISO on the Blackmagic is 800 so we used that. We tried to get similar shots. It's not so easy, in fact it was easier to get the shots on the 5D as the Blackmagic is just not a very easy to use camera in many regards. Wrongly interpreted zebra indicators had me fooled several times and the internal battery almost died. Post processing After a lengthy process of getting the RAW files converted into something usable we graded both to match more or less. We didn't do a very sophisticated grade, working with RAW files like that is time consuming. What became clear is that both cameras provide very similarly capable RAW files. You can adjust everything and everything is possible. You can get similar details out of the sky and set all you like in post. Color temperature, tint, dynamic range, no problem. The 5D is just as strong as the BMCC, providing maybe a bit more dynamic range. Where the cameras differ in terms of RAW is one big thing: Noise. The 5D mark III can shoot indoors at ISO 1600 and there's almost no noise while the Blackmagic starts to get ugly at this point. The noise from the BMCC is also apparent when raising the blacks in a shot. Moire and aliasing is another big big issue on Blackmagic and there is very litte of that on the 5D RAW. The cleanness of the shots of the 5D RAW in general is extremely pleasing and jumps at you when you sit in front of the RAW images. Check some of the dng's yourself in our other post. Conclusion The 5D RAW has the clear advantage of a large sensor and never before seen ISO performance on a RAW camera. It's intriguing and soon a stable version will probably be ready for real usage. On the downside the 5D RAW has a little less detail than the Blackmagic or an Alexa, but a lot more detail than the 5D had without the RAW hack. We'll keep you posted on the progress of the Magic Lantern solution.

      See the related article here: http://www.cinema5d.com/?p=17980 First and most important, I would like to thank the ML team for what they did. Adding RAW recording to a very popular camera and the plan to add RAW recording to most of Canon HDSLR cameras is a earth shaking news. It is big as allowing HDSLR cameras to shoot video. This short test we did was shot in an hour and meant to test the following: -The quality of footage coming out of the Canon 5d markIII in RAW shooting mode. -Workflow from shooting to delivery (see the related article here:http://www.cinema5d.com/news/?p=17898) -Cleanness of footage in ISO 1600 (see from minute 00:51:05) -Comparison of few shots between this camera and the BMCC (coming soon) RAW recording in this camera price range was till now only possible with the Blackmagic cinema camera which has a relatively small sensor, un satisfactory low light performance and in some conditions a major amount of moire. By introducing a RAW recording possibility for the Canon 5d MarkIII you can now enjoy full frame image, Canon’s extremely clean high ISO performance and almost moire free footage The high quality footage coming out from the camera in RAW mode is simply INSANE!. I recommend downloading and watching it on a big screen in order to appreciate what ML did. Yes, there are still some glitches like horizontal color lines popping up un-expectedly in the footage (you can see one at 00:53:22 ) and the actual digging in the ML menu in order to activate RAW recording can be a pain but all in all this feature implementation is huge! I hope the ML team or a 3rd party developers will farther simplify and stabilize the shooting process and workflow.

            Short movie filmed while waiting for the next flight in Brussels airport (L’aéroport de Bruxelles-National) Everything is handheld, Canon EOS 6D, Tamron 24-70 2.8. Magic Lantern RAW 14bit video. Graded in Davinci Resolve. Music by Tony Anderson. PS: For people who were asking me in private. Original file 200MB/s was encoded with 15MB/s to fit vimeo's file size restriction (500Mb), then another encoding by internal vimeo's codec to 720p with 2,7MB/s (HD quality) . All these causing artefacts and banding.

              Sand sculptures are a popular attraction on many of the world’s most popular beaches. Castles, mermaids, furniture, all built by those who pour their heart and soul into these fragile creations. But what about London, on the banks of the murky River Thames? This film follows Ron, or as he is more commonly known, the Beach Captain. An icon of the South Bank and London sand sculptor who, along with others, creates works of art on the banks of the Capital’s primary watercourse.

                Ungraded vignettes of people and skin tones - the only thing Ive touched is the exposure slider here and there :-). This is 14 bit RAW video from the Canon 60D live view. 14bit RAW is working fine - albeit not so many seconds at high resolution. What you see here is a h264 conversion from the RAW file in AE. The ORIGINAL RAW footage is STUNNING. Still a few teething issues (any frame drops you see here are where there has been a frame of corruption). Well done to A1ex and the ML team for their hard work. Workflow: Download & install ML onto SD card, Download marekk's latest 60D stuff (-with LV_AF_RAW) and overwrite ML stuff where specified. Initialise the RAW record mode after running the module off the M tab in Magic Lantern. Set RAW-enable to ON and choose framesize (1728 x 992 for 1920 scale). Record some RAW footage. Download and install for Win users: BATCHelor_1.2_by_FATPIGtures GUI (http://www.fatpigtures.com/software/) or on Mac use the OSX raw2dng GUI app for splitting the RAW file into DNG images. Take these files and import into Adobe Effects as in my quick and dirty approach: AE Workflow 1. In Adobe After Effects select File/Import/Multiple File' Import in AE which will insert each RAW set of DNGs into your AE Project - don't forget to checkbox Force Alphabetical Order in the import dialog. With this dialog still open select the first DNG in the sequence ((eg 000000.dng) and 'OK' into Adobe After Effects, the RAW window now appears (here change exposure, colour, highlights, shadows, etc...). Ok the first file and repeat the above sequene for the next clip/folder of DNGs you would like to import. 2/ Select a clip in the AE Projet youve imported and 'interpret' the footage as whatever frame rate it was recorded as and save setting using 'remember interpret' so that you can quickly 'apply interpretation' to all your other clips too. 3/ make a composition file and change the file duration roughly calculated to the total length of all your clips youve imported (you can always extend/reduce by editing the composition later), then select all the clips and drop them into the composition - space them out - and render the composition sequence (eg COMP 1) out to lossless .mov codec or custom Prores (or whatever format you like!) 4/ Bring the rendered output file into an NLE for further editing. * Dont forget to set Project workspace to 16bit in AE.

                    • Canon 6D RAW vs H264


                      from Alexandre Massart / Added

                      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.
