Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Canon USA, Digitalrev, eBay

Thanks to Thierry for having investigated this. It appears as if the release date for the Canon EOS 70D isn’t clearly defined so far. Online seller report different dates for the release.

In France, online resellers FNAC and Boulanger still reports the 28th of August as release date, while Pixmania has the 8th of November as a candidate release date. Amazon France now has the 25th of October as release date.

In Germany, Amazon DE also has the 25th of October set as release date, Pixmania DE has the 8th of November.

Amazon UK also reports the 25th of October, Amazon US lists the 15th of September. No release date reported by B&H, nor does Adorama. No release date at DigitalRev.

A Guide for Shooting RAW on the Canon EOS 50D Using Magic Lantern Hack (Book)

Magic Lantern Hack

Image courtesy: EOSHD

The Magic Lantern hack that brought RAW video on the Canon EOS 50D (here on eBay). Not only the EOS 50D now can shoot video (was never thought to do so) but it can shoot RAW footage. To make it short: the EOS 50D delivers lot of videography power for the money you have to spend. The EOS 50D is five year old, can be found on eBay for around $500 (but believe me, the price will raise) , and is a solidly build camera. All this magic attracted people interested in using the 50D as video tool, so EOSHD made a guide to recording cinematic raw video on the Canon 50D. More after the break.

Magic Lantern Dual ISO vs RAW Test Video (EOS 5D Mark III)

Yesterday I reported about the latest achievement of the Magic Lantern team: a hack that allows to obtain 14 stops of dynamic range (3 more than usual), using a a sampling method dubbed “Dual ISO”. Dual ISO means that half of the sensor lines are sampled at ISO 100, the other half at ISO 1600.

Michael Anthony (source: planet5d) produced a test video that compares RAW output and Magic Lantern Dual ISO output on a Canon EOS 5D Mark III. Description and setup after the break.
