Magic Lantern enables Canon 5D Mark III Raw video output
Camera feature modifier Magic Lantern has developed a version of its software enabling 24fps Raw video output from the Canon EOS 5D Mark III. This news has grabbed videographers' full attention as it allows for individual frames of 14 bit output, yielding a much wider dynamic range than you'd get from standard 8 bit video files.
The Raw-video code isn't yet publicly available, but EOSHD's Andrew Reid has got his hands on an early, development-stage version of the software.
As always, even once made public, Magic Lantern warns that its software has been created by reverse engineering and cannot be guaranteed 100% safe. The camera output isn't in any standard format but it should be possible to transcode it into a more conventional format, such as CinemaDNG.
