Yes, the source for the still above is a 1080p 14bit RAW shot with the 5D mark III!!! And here’s a test video showing you how that looks in motion with an article elaborating the work with the camera: LINK. If you haven’t seen it you should check it out.
The developers working on the Magic Lantern hack for the Canon 5D mark III have enabled continuous 14bit RAW recording (!!!). We tested it and it works better every day. The results are totally breathtaking and revolutionary. The hack is still in Alpha stage, but don’t be afraid, here’s a guide that shows you exactly how you can do it too!
If you’re not a computer scientist it’s not easy to get the Magic Lantern hack and 14bit RAW module working that is constantly being updated in the Magic Lantern forums.
After struggling for a day we managed to pull it off and have improved the process ever since so here’s our complete dummies guide to squeeze the RAW bits out of a Canon EOS 5D mark III.
NOTE: Here’s what WE did and what worked for us. There’s no guarantee this will work for you, in fact you will void your warranty for the camera and it might be dead afterwards (although we haven’t heard about any camera going dead yet). Note that we take no responsibility for what happens when you follow our guide. Do it at your own risk and research on your own if you want to make sure.

In this last video from IBC 2012 we’re posting Clayton Burkhart has a conversation with Peter Yabsley from Canon about the new Canon EOS C100.
The Canon EOS C100 was definitely one of the most interesting cameras of IBC 2012. Peter Yabsley gave us the details in this interview and elaborates why there is such a big price difference between the C line cameras and how the different models are really for different target groups.
Let’s see if what Sony comes out with tomorrow will be able to compete with Canon’s C line of cameras.
This is the last chance to participate in our IBC 2012 twitter contest as we’ll pick the winner tomorrow.
We’ve seen many grading apps and plugins made to take our footage that extra step towards the film look many of us are so keen to achieve: To make our films look cinematic, organic and nice. But none of them is quite as easy to use and gives you as spot on beautiful results as FilmConvert.
Does it work? Yes it does. I’ve been using FilmConvert for the past several weeks now and I’m very pleased with everything it has done. On any other software doing a quick film grade takes time and I have to smear up my footage with numerous looks, most of them being way to exaggerated. FilmConvert applies just the subtle changes needed to get digital footage where film would be.
The people from FilmConvert measured the exact differences from certain cameras to certain analogue film stocks. The software detects which camera your footage was shot with and alters it accordingly. The result is always right and each of the included 8 (light version) or 19 (pro version) stocks looks very nice. There’s also an exposure and colour temperature tab to do primary corrections and a 3-way colour correction and levels tab to do some rough grading.
The Sony EA50 was announced two months ago (LINK) and impressed us with its very interesting and ergonomic looking design, the zoom rocker functionality and a good price-point.
What we didn’t know was how it performed before we got a chance to see it and play with it (LINK)
Now Johnnie Behiri got a chance to test the Sony NEX-EA50 large sensor camera and shared these nice clips and some insightful thoughts with us.
