LensRentals shipping Canon EOS 5D Mark III with Magic Lantern

Aug 23, 2013 at 03:52 GMT

LensRentals.com is now shipping the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, with a twist. These particular 5D Mark IIIs have Magic Lantern (which adds additional features to Canon DSLRs) pre-installed. The most notable feature gained by using Magic Lantern on the 5D Mark III is Raw video support, which offers much better video quality than on a 'stock' camera. You can also take advantage of the rest of the Magic Lantern feature set, including focus peaking, an intervalometer, too many movie enhancements to list, plus the dynamic range improvement that we reported on last month.

All this can be yours for around $250 per week. LensRentals throws in a 128GB Lexar 1000X CompactFlash card, which you'll need to capture Raw video.
