    Does the hack unlock the video mode to shoot h.264 as well or will it only do video by way of the raw hack?

    I mean the raw video is amazing but for day-to-day bread and butter type stuff I'm still going to shoot the regular compression on my 5D3. That's one of the cool parts of the raw hack to me--I don't have to use it. I would be interested in just having the video unlocked in a $350 body.

    Awesome regardless.

    I don't have the 50D Justin, so I can't answer your question. I do hope someone with a 50D can chime in on this.

    I'm always amazed what those guys are able to do.
    I mean, if you have a 50D laying around, you suddenly have a raw video camera for free.

    Since the 50D is pretty rugged, even if you buy one now, it's in the same price range than a Hero3 but with much better image quality and lowlight abilities now. So there is your raw action/crash cam that intercuts with your Alexa.

    This is all so unreal. Some people in their living rooms, unlocking features from 5 year old cameras...WTF CANON. I understand market share, I understand some of the economics but this is incredible. A camera that was never "able" to shoot video...Is no shooting RAW video. Insanity. I am super impressed with what those folks are doing

    The same guy who did the video above compared the 50D with a 5DmkII.

    Yeah, there are actually a couple of comparison videos of the 50D on h.264 mode vs the raw mode. Crazy stuff, I had a 50D...changed to the d90, now the 50D does better video...lol, from no video at all when I owned it. Apparently it wasn't hard for ML to get h.264 from the 50D since a video mode has been there the whole time, just locked in firmware.

    That footage looks really nice- wonder if this bumps up the values of 50D's? I'd like to pick one up now.

    ML had unlocked h.264 video recording with the 50D a year or more ago. Don't know if it survived all the updates or not, but it was available at one time. Not sure if it was reliable either. Searching through some of the older posts on https://vimeo.com/groups/magiclantern might revel some more info if you happen to have a 50D and want to do video.

    Cheers,
    Pete
