The Magic Lantern guys never cease to amaze with what they can pull out of Canon HDSLRs. In the latest Magic Lantern firmware that's in development, the Canon 5D Mark III now manages to capture raw video at 24p. This comes after it was previously teased running at lower frame rates.

I am an ametuer user of Canon 5d mark III. I am okay with stills and plan to shoot documentaries and also full length films too. Should I do the magic lantern update. WIll I get to shoot for long time. Please help me out.

Thanks a lot

Wow, what a difference in dynamic range. Looks like 2-4 stops. The outside is completely blown out with the normal ALL-I and you can hardly make out any details in the shoe. In the RAW video, I see tons of detail in the shoe and still can see perfectly outside. Huge difference.

IF I bought a $3000 camera, I sure as heck wouldn't install 3rd party firmware under any circumstances. Not only warranty issues, but other unforeseen anomalies which would render the camera unusable, except as a shelf curio or a model boat anchor!
