Title says everything...
I'm definitely amazed by the potential of using the crop mode shooting macro:

very nice, thanks for sharing....
If life is all about what you do in the time that you have, then photography is about the pictures you take not the kit that took it. Still it's fun to talk about the kit, present or future :)

Thank you all for the comments!
I didn't have time to run anymore crop mode tests yet, so nothing new. But I'm still using ML to shoot video raw and it's just great. I'm just struggling to find a way to keep the original raw quality once turning the stills into video with Premiere. It looks like Premiere converts everything to 8 bit and so there's much more banding than I'd like to see...

I usually run everything through Davinci Resolve first then send to FCP or PP. I feel like Resolve handles the RAW better for a basic pre-edit grade. Just my experience.

Thank you for your advice, Cgdillan. I don't use Resolve, but I can give your workflow a try.
Usually, I import the DNG to Camera Raw, apply the color correction/grading, export a 14 bit PSD sequence and import everything in Premiere for the video export. But as soon as I convert the PSD into an 8 bit video file, I loose a lot of what I gained shooting RAW instead of H264... that's what bothers me. But I suppose there's no loophole...

I used to do that too but in lightroom. and the export took forever! It was definitely a bit of a learning curve to learn Resolve but I would say it's definitely worth the time because the way it handle 5D raw it beautiful. and the new resolve has some great new tools for raw processing. Also, I always export ProRes HQ from Resolve to retain the best quality for editing.

Right! I actually felt really bad for the little guy..
