There's always a moment when the harsh nature of reality is crystallised; when however hard you try, you can't pretend any more that things are OK.  For most people, this type of thing happens when they get their first credit card bill after Christmas.

There's still life in compressed video...

Published in Production

While it's tempting to think that with the Magic Lantern EOS raw hack out in the open that normal, compressed video will never be good enough again, that's taking far too strict a line on it. The fact is that the conventional video output from cameras like the EOS 5D MK III is very good indeed with the exception of certain well-known issues like moire and rolling shutter

As ever, neither we nor Chris can take responsibility if anything goes wrong!
