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.

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.

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
