Here’s a great new video by a fellow called James Miller which is creating a bit of a stir around the internet as “the most beautiful video” from the Canon raw video hack so far
There was a lot of news at IBC2014, particularly on the camera and camera accessory front, and we published a lot of stories as a result (with more still in the pipeline). Here, in case you’ve missed any of our coverage, are the highlights so far (with added Photokina).
The blockbuster science-fiction movie look is now available to anyone with a good story, creative vision and persistance.
Phil Rhodes injects some reality into the current race for megapixels
It's been some time now since the digital stills fraternity stopped worrying about megapixels, at least to the extent that the Canon EOS 5D mark 3 was designed with only trivially greater resolution than its predecessor.
Modern cameras have incredible dynamic range - but you can only access it if you use a "log" or "Cine-style" mode when you record. RedShark Technical Editor, Phil Rhodes, explains how this works, and wonders why there are so many non-standard ways to do it!
One of the most fascinating and exciting things that's happened last year was the release of the Magic Lantern software for getting raw video from Canon DSLRs. But how do you install the software? Chris Cory has all the answers
Even though ML has done a great job in packaging their software, it's quite a technical operation. Some people might not want to try this on their precious cameras - and that's understandable.
With this in mind, RedShark contributor Chris Cory has made this "How To" guide for us. It's very detailed, and just what you need to get you up and running with this exciting software.
As ever, neither we nor Chris can take responsibility if anything goes wrong!
Video after the break
Developments in the field of magic lantern raw video continue to grow with news that developers have managed to get raw video support up and running on the Canon 50D, a 5 year old camera that predates the Canon 5D Mark II and which shipped without any video capability at all!
We're following a bit of a theme here: ProRes versus in-camera recording. Here's an extremely interesting clip with a split-screen demonstration of ProRes vs a Canon C100's internal codec which is 24Mbit/s AVCHD
We've just recieved high resolution photos of Canon's new RC-V100 for their professional video cameras
