Magic Lantern Raw playback on Canon 5D Mark III - Possible solution?
on Oct 18, 2013 at 3:01:17 am

Hi everyone.

So I've scoured this site, and others, for possible solutions to the problem of not being able to playback Magic Lantern raw video on the 5D3, and am wondering if this idea I have might possibly be a decent workaround.

I realize that the current raw capabilities on ML are based on Canon firmware version 1.1.3, which does not have clean HDMI out. So this precludes any external monitoring, or playback.

BUT, would it be possible to hook up an Atomos Ninja 2 to the RCA port on the 5D3 via an adapter cable (HDMI to RCA) and record to the Ninja that way? I realize that the quality would suffer, and so doing things like using the Ninja for focusing might be problematic, but I'm really only looking for the ability to playback the current shot to check for issues like framing and performance, so i can move on to the next shot with some level of confidence.

I have never used a Ninja before, and thus have no idea if this is even possible. Which is why I'm asking you.

Some of my concerns are:
- would I lose LiveView when connecting an RCA jack for output?
- would this affect write speed?
- Is this even possible at all?

Any comments, advice, other solutions, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all.

Are the RCA ports only standard Definition as on the Mark II?
