First two three Canon EOS 7D RAW Video samples spotted

by planetmitch1 Comment

It didn't take long, the first samples from Magic Lantern software for the Canon EOS 7D shows us RAW video in short bursts. We first told you about this Friday here on the planet5D blog

Before you get too excited to make your long feature, these videos are short bursts — the second one is “40-41 pictures a little less than 2 seconds” — so we're still in the infancy on Canon EOS 7D RAW. We'll have to see the progress the Magic Lantern team can make here.

The first video posted in the Magic Lantern forum where the Canon EOS 7D RAW video was announced was this one:

My first video with the raw silent picture continuous burst.

-I got a lot of moire, a lot! But wend i upload in youtube it just take out, almost all, of the moire.
-In the first second its show up a corrupt frame. Half pink, maybe because of the card?
-In the sky its also create a kind of a grid. But you can't see here because of the compression of youtube.

Crazyrunner33 said this about the video:

I tried a quick and dirty crop mode test today, I'm impressed with what I see so far and will experiment a little more with it.
