Magic Lantern and the 5D Mark iii

Just my musings.

I did a test with the latest nightly build 2014-05-23 and I am impressed.

I rated the camera at ISO 640. I feel this is the native ISO of the sensor after doing extensive tests.

I purposely underexposed a lot and shot under tungsten lights.

Let me just say, I was able to bring back the footage to a proper exposure and remove the warm cast and the footage is absolutely amazing. 14 bits. Large dynamic range. Very impressed.

It was a breeze to install. Now I'm just working out the proper workflow.

I used Rarevision RawMagic to convert the RAW to DNG files and boy was it fast on my 15" Macbook Pro.

And it's stable? I've always been afraid of the nightly releases...

I think I'm running a ML version from a few months ago as it's proven very reliable. I've learned about being an early adopter the hard way! ;-)

So far very stable build 2014-05-23 for firmware 1.2.3. It is also the only version I can use as my camera has firmware 1.2.3. I did not want to back flash it to 1.1.3.

I'm very impressed and RAWMagic is incredibly fast at converting to Cinema DNG.

Gotcha. Yep, we decided to roll our 5D3 firmware back to 1.1.3 so we could use ML. I'm glad to hear that they have a working 1.2.3 compatible ML out. I'll probably give it a few months and then give it a go! :-)

Let me know if you encounter any hiccups!

None so far. It's very Stable. I'm using MLRawViewer to look at the raw files on my Mac and can even preview in real time color balance changes as well as exposure.

I process with RawMagic and have been using After Effect CS6 to make ProRes files. I have to learn DaVinci Resolve more thoroughly to use it.
