New 5D3 Firmware Spotted!!!!!!!
« on: April 10, 2013, 09:39:05 AM »
Hey,
So I've been combing through videos from NAB2013, and if you watch this video about Atomos from Newsshooter.com, they reveal that the new firmware is live on the 5D3 at their booth!

https://vimeo.com/63722639

Looks pretty exciting - he seems to be monitoring over HDMI and on the Ninja at the same time!

Cheers!

Nice find. The guy says 1.2; skippers go ahead around 3:27.  ;)

OT. I like how easily replaceable the hard disk is on that ninja blade.

Good news indeed. Thanks for sharing

Even though Ninja is slightly out of my current budget but boy it's an interesting new (/improved) product!

wonder if the new firmware will have anything for still photographers.  Canon seems (perhaps correctly) to focus on videographers.

Atomos page says Canon won't ship the firmware until May.

Price drop for the Ninja make it look very interesting. Ability to use spinning discs makes the TCO a better deal than the Black magic unit.

Link? Atomos guy descibed the firmware he has as Beta. If the firmware really is RTM and NAB is running don't you think that Canon would announce that it is shipping?

Interesting (to me) tidbits in the video, none of which is really surprising
- Embedded timecode
- 8-bit 4:2:2

I'm looking forward to getting the new firmware and trying it out on my wife's 5D3 and my Hyperdeck Shuttle. But, now that I have my BMCC, I'm not sure I'll ever shoot video with a Canon DSLR again, especially not after the Pocket Cam version is released.

Price drop for the Ninja make it look very interesting. Ability to use spinning discs makes the TCO a better deal than the Black magic unit.

damn, i pre-bought the Ninja2 way back when thinking ML would make it usable but it didn't and now they dropped the price a lot on it by the time it is actually going to be usable :( and if it turns out that the difference isn't enough to make it worth it then I will take a bath selling it used :(

awesome for eveyone else though hah
heh

The Atomos guys seem to want to take care of thier early adapters, try hitting them up for some free stuff. If you are interested in selling yours send me a PM with what you have and what you want.
