EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mark III & RAW Video, A Case Study

Haters gonna hate :)
Slightly off-topic: Even if you think raw video on 5D is a dud, you gotta admit that the prospects of turning the old 50D into a cinema camera (albeit not FHD) is wicked awesome. Granted, it does not give you the FF advantage, but apparently the 15MP sensor has its advantages too:)
Personally, I am quite exited about the prospects of doing in-camera slides and such, not just the raw capabilities.

If you prefer sticking with in-camera H264, by all means, enjoy your time-tested workflow. For me however, Raw will give me a competitive advantage  and will help me gain access to a more lucrative market segment.
It could have to do with me coming from stills photography and thus being used to dealing with raw, but personally, I find it MUCH less time consuming to grade Raw rather than the stock H264. I don't really care about the time spend on converting files as I just work on something else meanwhile (eg. titles, sound etc.)
Either way, being skeptic at this point of development seems just outright silly... Great attention is currently being devoted to multiple different developments (in-camera bit shifting to 12/10bit, easy generation of proxy clips, automated/scripted workflows etc. etc)
As to canons design choices, besides from their corporate structure, could have to do with memory card speeds as well?
Anyways, I am stoked but I guess YMMV and so on...

Why are you disguising the camera? Why not just get a simple black t-shirt with "POLICE" written on it in the language of the country? (unless people there like to shoot police)

Gonna get a Kenko set as soon as my budget allows it. At the moment, the piggy-bank is going towards a new set of CF after the recent development with ML and RAW video :)

I don't know much about Windows Phone 8, but I'd imagine your app choices would be more limited due to there being less developers.
This was my main concern I guess.
I really like the Nokia Lumia, both for its design and the legendary durability of some Nokia models.
I WILL however choose the device based almost solely on the availability of apps as the latter (for me) constitutes the only reason to upgrade.
I find the ability to use a smartphone for tethered shooting (eg. star timelapse from inside my tent & awkward angles) , video monitor (albeit a small one, eg. the "missing" articulating LCD on my 5D) and so on.

Look at how awful the false color artifacts (rainbow colors) are on the BMCC sensor vs. the 5D3 RAW rendering the pebbles on the path up the middle:
Hmm is this a general issue with Black Magic sensors? Or is it a contrived example?

Off-topic: Does anyone know of any reference-ish media player? With some clips, I seem to get variations in different players unless I tweak them. Kinda makes it hard to compare files unless we specify players and codecs?

I am going for a shoot in the dessert during the next few days, will try to make a comparison between prolost and x if I get the time :)

Seems like a sensible move, anyone tried it yet?

This is so sweet, a pain having to wait for new CF's to ship before trying it out :)

What is getting hot, the CF card or the controller or both?
I recall friends using heatsinks on overclocked RAM, I wonder if one could modify a CF card for conductivity (or compel a company to do so)
After the announcement of the BMC 4K, the chance of me using the 1D C professionally has decreased alot, and overheating is an issue that I need to consider as we plan to shoot in full sun in Africa and other sauna-like conditions. Would be cool if someone with a 1D C (and good hands) would try modding a CF card and/or the CF card-door.
EDIT: I wonder if these would perform better?

I understand that we all have different needs, but personally, I get frustrated from the eternal incremental upgrades.
This thread again reminded me to go out and shoot instead of spending all day chasing dreams :)

[size=78%]The last one is my favourite of this stunning black and white study. Keep the good work up.[/size]
Thanks alot for your kind words :)
And I agree, many nice shots in this thread - thanks to all for sharing!

Thanks for sharing your observations. I have been saving for an external recorder, but  as it looks right now, I am thinking that I may be better off spending the money on glass and other additions to my kit.
Very nice that 1.2.1 is crisper but odd that we're not seeing bigger improvements on the external. I wonder if this is yet another effect of Canon marketing or what not.
Will you be posting further findings in this thread?

Sometimes before deleting my rejected pictures, I convert them to b/w and once in a while they turn into keepers :) Here are a few recent ones. Not sure if to crop them tighter and still trying to figure out sharpening...
