| p.3 #5 · ML added Continuous RAW recording to EOS 5D Mark III |
I'd be surprised if Canon don't respond to this given their reaction to ML over the concept of a 4K hack for the 1Dx.
That ML's code tinkerings are driving unit sales for both bodies and lenses...which methinks is the case here...I do not think we'll see Canon let-loose the lawyers anytime soon. In the scramble for global market share a vibrant product-hacker community is corporate insurance against user-base erosion. Nikon and SONY wish they could have such luck.
EH, whatever, but check this out (D: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1212647
Seriously YOU will flip out beyond all belief. It has a mega-crop mode 14bit RAW video with perfect quality so you can basically shoot birds as if you were cropping 1920x1080 out of 100% view of a full RAW!! So instead of needing 1200mm to get a little bird taking up 1/100th of the center of your videos like now you might get them taking up almost the entire frame! With great DR! Amazing 24fps video!
Being able to crop full size still images is one of the great aspects of still-image photography, and one aspect sorely lacking when shooting video. Being freed up from default sensor usage for video capture is big news, indeed, and I share in your enthusiasm over its prospects and implications. That ML can get this working without dropped-frame stuttering and deliver anything better than the default 8-bit video offerings I will definitely drop some coin for their firmware revision.
As for your missing thread, perhaps Fred can chime in as to why that occurred.
Anyhoo, thanks for the continuing heads-ups on these news items!
