A new update has been released for the Canon 5D Mark III And II by the community of developers behind Magic Lantern, which now enables owners to capture 24 fps RAW video at resolutions up to 1,920 x 820 pixels using 1000x speed cards.
The new Magic Lantern firmware is an open source firmware add-on which has been created to bring additional functionality to Canon EOS cameras. Watch the video after the jump to see it in action.
Magic Lantern user lourenco explained a little more about the Canon 5D Mark III And II update and how it functions.
“I did a quick test in Raw mode. I wanted to see how much higher I could do above 720p. I tried 1928×850 and 1928×902. I think it was 902. 902 the buffer would fill up and video stops after 700 frames or so. At 850 I am able to get continuous recordings.
The best I am able to obtain in Raw mode right now is continuous 1928×850 at 24fps. I plan to crop the video to 1920×817 to do 2.35:1 wide screen aspect ratio, which is about 1920×817. The video will have black bars on top and bottom to output at 1920×1080.”
