Canon EOS 5D Mark II Magic Lantern VS Blackmagic Cinema Camera Raw Video – A OR B?

by planetMitch5 Comments

Simple test to see if you can tell the difference between the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (oops!) Canon EOS 5D Mark II Magic Lantern RAW video and the Blackmagic Cinema Camera RAW video — see the description to understand the tests… and of course, you can vote on the forum post for this blog and be entered in the Canon EOS 6D giveaway! (Update: darn it, I forgot to turn off the switch that lets you comment here in the blog instead of the forums… but I have now!)

It is a bit short and I wish it looped, but it is fun to see if you can figure this out…

BTW, there's no answer from the up-loader yet.

  1. Me thinks if you read the description more carefully this is actually comparing the 5D Mk II to the BMCC, not the 5D Mk III.

  2. Um first off is it the mk2 or mk3? And clearly A is the 5D BMC crops the image and on these shots even moving back it would be hard to get as wide as the 5D. Also camera A looks better too.
