Hacked EOS 5D Mark III: New footage!

WARNING: Don’t modify your camera without the necessary technical knowledge. Opening the camera voids warranty and may irreparably damage it.

We reported about this hack by James Miller a few days ago. James Miller opened his brand new EOS 5D Mark III and removed the Optical Low-Pass Filter (aka Anti-Aliasing filter) from the sensor. It seems that the filter is really blurring the image, since the pics shot without the filter are much more detailed.

Now, Miller published new material shot with his hacked EOS 5D Mark III. Removing the OLPF makes a visible difference, while moire seems not to be worsened at all and aliasing is under control. See and judge for yourself…
