A Great Demonstration Of The Difference Between Raw And H.264 Video
Dave Dugdale of LearningDSLRVideo.com just published this great demonstration of the differences between recording video in raw and H.264 formats using Canon DSLRs and free Magic Lantern firmware. The difference is pretty astounding to me, as someone who has only ever shot video in H.264. You can check to see if your camera is supported at Magic Lantern’s website – and while they don’t currently support all cameras that Canon makes (or any that Nikon makes) they are always working on updates and trying to unlock the potential of a number of cameras at any one time (for example, they just announced that raw video will shortly be coming to the Canon 7d). Sure makes me wish that I had access to this great software on a number of my old shoots!
