Still hot with news on the Canon 5D Mark III being able to shoot continuous raw video footage with Magic Lantern, comparison videos are starting to hit the net. In this video, you'll see the Black Magic Cinema Camera footage alongside the hacked 5D, with ISO information to give you a better idea of the noise difference. Even with Vimeo's compression, you can see the difference for yourself.
Watch it in HD on fullscreen to see for yourself, or even download the source file.
The main takeaways from this (non scientific) test:
• 5D has an edge in dynamic range
• 5D has great ISO performance
More information can be found in my previous article here.
Stay tuned for more updates on this, and I'll post when a stable release of Magic Lantern has been made available.
