Canon EOS 7D & Magic Lantern RAW – Sample Footage

Vimeo user posted the first sample footage shot with an Canon EOS 7D and the Magic Lantern RAW hack. He writes:

As you know, the Canon 7D is now capable of shooting raw video thanks to Magic Lantern.
I’ve downloaded Pelican’s nightly build and install it on my Canon 7D. I did some quick tests in my garden with silent pics burst. For now, I didn’t get any pink frames. I can get 40-41 pictures (a little less than 2 seconds).
DNG are 1736 x 1156 pixels. Stunning quality compared to H.264…
But a little of moire (as usual with the 7D).
Congratulations to Magic Lantern !!! It’s totally amazing what they can do.

    Man that looks good! I hope they can get things going on the new 70D pretty quick. Since it only has a single processor, it should be easier to hack. And with the audio controls, articulating screen, and new sensor, it could be a better video camera. I’m not risky enough to put magic lantern on my 5D3 that’s my primary camera but I might be willing to risk a $1200 backup camera. I would put this on my 7D but the 7D has never been my favorite for video since it’s a bit noisy at high ISO for one.

      Magic Lantern does not install on your camera. It’s basically running alongside the original firmware so it can’t damage your camera. No one has ever reported a camera being broken by Magic Lantern… It’s worth it really.
