Hacked EOS 5D Mark III: More footage

More footage shot with a modified EOS 5D Mark III has been published. I reported about this hack made by James Miller (here, here and here). The mod consists in removing the OLPF (Optical Low-Pass Filter) from the sensor of the 5D Mark III. The result: an increase in resolution. The surprising thing is that neither moire nor aliasing become a real problem without the OLPF (aka Anti-Aliasing filter). Without the OLPF filter the sensor becomes also more sensitive to IR light, making the 5D Mark III suitable for astrophotography. To fully enjoy (and analyze) the footage it’s better to login to Vimeo and to download the uncompressed version of the video.
