I've been following the rumors here for the past few months. Awhile back, I was on a video shoot for the Canon 5D Mk2. I was blown away by the video, and wanted one.<P>
I've been talking to and learning from some local still shooters and am excited about working in stills and video.
I'm getting close to pulling the trigger on a 5D MkIII, but from some posts, I'm getting the impression that there is no software out there, that you can download and do anything with the RAW shots you take on the camera. Is this true? Is jpeg the only format you can take off the camera to do anything with post?
I've got enough saved to get the camera with kit lens, and was thinking of getting the canon 85mm 1.8 as my first prime. Right now, I only have iMovie and iPhoto that come with my mac, and figure that will be good to start learning with...but am now a bit hesitant in thinking that I may get this wonderful camera, but not really be able to do anything with the stills or footage I take with it.
Can someone tell me if I'm missing something? What are my best options? Will iMovie and iPhoto work with the content I take with my new 5D mkIII when I get it?
This is my first post, thank you in advance for any information and/or links to things to read up on....
