If you’re a videographer using Canon DSLR’s chances are you’ve used the Magic Lantern before. Now, in a wonderful update they have done the seemingly impossible and given us raw continuous video recording for the 5D Mark III. When active, the 5D3 turns into a BlackMagic Cinema Camera of sorts recording 1920×720 HD Raw video at about 90MB/s and reports have said that the camera is more than up to the task at hand. If you record the video at 1080p, the file sizes are similar to 2.5K on the BlackMagic Cinema Camera.
Currently the version is in development and not really even in alpha just yet so we are not fully able to test it for ourselves. Once it is finished, there will be no doubt that it will be ported to the 6D or even the 600/700D. If you want to find out more about the technical aspects of this build and how this will affect the world of videography as we know it, head on over to our source link for more.
