Magic Lantern Raw Enabled Canon EOS 5D Mark IIIs Can Now Be Rented

Magic Lantern

If you still were skeptical about the Magic Lantern RAW hack, or were thinking it was not delivering cool and professional features, then think again. Lens Rentals is renting magic-lanternized Canon EOS 5D Mark III bodies. They write:

This camera’s firmware has been altered to shoot RAW video. It will still function normally otherwise, but we’re renting it as a RAW-hacked camera.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III Magic Lantern RAW Hack Kit includes everything you’ll need to get started shooting RAW video with the Canon 5D III. Key features include:

  • RAW Hack Firmware (08/06/13)
  • Expanded Video Features: Magic Lantern gets you the most out of your camera by unlocking professional features like peaking / zebra filters, superb audio controls, and even a built-in intervalometer for making time lapses.
  • Requirements: Recording RAW video requires incredibly fast CompactFlash cards. Lexar 128GB 1000x cards are currently the only cards we carry fast enough for RAW recording. This kit includes one of the Lexar cards, but more can be rented here.
