Looking forward to this once there are faster and more affordable cards in the next year or so. Canon more than likely had zero involvement with this, it was discovered on accident while creating a histogram for RAW photography. Seeing this live DNG feed through the HDMI is not possible, this has been discussed extensively on the Magic Lantern forums. Heat is also not so much of an issue because the sensor is already pushing out the RAW feed.
BMCC will still be the way to go for RAW video due to it being more reliable and the easier workflow with compressed RAW, but this is a gamechanger for people on a budget or hobbyists.
I have read about the DNG feed not being able to be fed through the HDMI, but, I wonder if this 'raw' feed discovered here could be sent through the cable?
After all, it is just data...it would be the bee's knees (did I just really say that?) if they could push this data out of the HDMI, or maybe even the USB connection to the camera, to an external recorder.
At that point, all bets are off on this I'd say....
That would be awesome if they could get a super crisp 1920x1080 with slightly better DR over the HDMI, pu tthat into a ninja 2 and it would be quite practical. Of course to a CF card and RAW would be best, but you could have a half way there option that would be easier to use when you value that more.
You know, the more I think about this...the more I wonder if it would be possible for ML to output the 'raw' video out through the USB port.
I'm pretty sure it is only usb2, but perhaps that still would be fast enough to push out the raw data that ML is capturing from the sensor?
Just wondering and pondering....
