This is so awesome. Magic Lantern has proved that the Canon 5D Mark III can in fact shoot 2.5K raw video given the right firmware (that’s putting the 5D Mark III in the same line as the Blackmagic Cinema Camera). There’s no public release yet, but the pre-alpha stages of this firmware confirm that it can be done. And best of all, if this works without any big problems, this firmware can be ported over to the 6D, 5D Mark II, and even the 600D to give those cameras RAW capability as well.

In a word, this is fantastic! Godspeed to the Magic Lantern team!
