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!
Ever wonder what a Canon 5D MK2, an NEX FS100 and a Blackmagic Cinema camera look like, side by side? Probably not because two of these are the old models and you'd more likely be thinking about a 5D MK3, an NEX FS700 and the Blackmagic camera. But that doesn't make this any less interesting
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
The Canon 1DC is a curious camera. Based on a top-end DSLR design, with essentially only some additional firmware it becomes a 4K camcorder as well. But where does it fit into the increasingly complex matrix of options around high res, high dynamic range (i.e. RAW) devices that are available today at approximately affordable prices?
