GUIDE: RAW on 5D mark III with Magic Lantern

Yes, the source for the still above is a 1080p 14bit RAW shot with the 5D mark III with Magic Lantern!!! And here’s a test video showing you how that looks in motion with an article elaborating the work with the camera: LINK.

The developers working on the Magic Lantern hack for the Canon 5D mark III have enabled continuous 14bit RAW recording last year. We tested it and it works great. The resulting images are totally breathtaking for a DSLR. The installation procedure has now been strongly simplified.

Please follow our complete dummies guide to squeeze the RAW bits out of a Canon EOS 5D mark III.

NOTE: We take no responsibility for what happens when you follow our guide. Do it at your own risk and research on your own if you want to make sure.NOTE: When installing Magic Lantern your camera will start up 2 seconds slower (this can now be undone by simply uninstalling Magic Lantern)

What you need:

– A Canon 5D mark III. If you buy one, please get it HERE. – A simple SD card for the firmware. We used this one. – A good UDMA 7 card reader, we recommend this one for USB 3: LINK– A very fast CF card. You have the following options:

(You get 25 minutes of 1080p on a 128GB card)

Installing RAW on the Canon 5D mark III:

  1. Make sure your 5D mark III has a fully charged battery.
  2. Make sure your camera is on firmware 1.2.3 ( in your camera go to menu –> yellow tab –> firmware ver.: …), otherwise update to 1.2.3 by downloading it HERE.
  3. Download the Magic Lantern package. (latest, stable release we tested from April 28th 2015)
  4. Copy the whole contents of the downloaded folder to the root folder on your SD (!!!) card. This can be a slow card, it only holds the firmware and it always has to stay inside the camera.
  5. Place the SD card in your camera, switch it on and go to the firmware update (yellow tab) in the camera menu. Do the update which will make your camera Magic Lantern “ready”.
  6. The camera now installs, wait until the green “please restart your camera” text appears. Now follow the instruction and “turn your camera off and then on again”.
  7. Now place that fast CF card you bought (see above) into the camera.
  8. Switch camera on. Immediately you will see different overlays than usual and the camera will probably instantly go into live-view.
  9. Now press the “trash button” on the camera to activate Magic Lantern. The Magic Lantern menu will load.
  10. Go to the Modules menu with the “squares” symbol (on the far right).
  11. Select the RAW module ( and activate it. It lights up green. Also activate the file_man and mlv_play modules.
  12. Restart the camera (leave some seconds off)
  13. Go to the trash menu again and go to the menu with the “video camera” symbol.
  14. Select the “RAW video” tab and press SET button on your camera.
  15. Now press the “Q” button to access the RAW menu.
  16. Set your width and height to be “1920×1080” for HD recording. Leave the other options as they are for now.
  17. Exit the menu by pressing the “trash button” again. Set your desired framerate in the Canon menu. (should work up to 30p with the proper CF card!)
  18. To record go about as usual, press the “start/stop” button.
  19. You will see the camera capturing (or dropping) frames…
  20. If you’re dropping frames either your card is too slow or you need to turn some options OFF in the RAW menu. If nothing works try lowering the resolution a little.

Note: If you’re dropping frames in the first two seconds of the recording you might also have the wrong card selected in Canon’s folder menu. Note 2: To record larger files than 4GB format your CF card in the “exFAT” file system. Ask Google if you don’t know how to do it.

See a list of great new features in 2014 here in this article: Shooting RAW on a Canon 5D mark III in 2014 – What you have to know


Other tips:

  • To shoot slow motion press the Q button in live view and change Canon’s framrate setting there. After that check your resolution in the Magic Lantern RAW menu and unsqueeze it in post. It actually looks pretty cool, check out this work.
  • To preview footage quickly on a Mac, get the MlRAWviewer (Link updated May 12th ’15. See instructions or Windows version in forum)
  • Detailed in-depth info on the numerous options in the menus: LINK

Uninstalling (removing the 2 second delay at startup):

1. Make sure your 5D mark III has a fully charged battery! 2. Get the SD card that holds the contents of the latest Magic Lantern Package which you downloaded in step 3. above. 5. Place this SD card in your camera, switch it on and go to the firmware update (yellow tab) in the

___camera menu. Do the update.

4. The camera now installs, wait until the green “please restart your camera” text appears. Now DO NOT turn your camera off.

5. Wait 30 seconds and the camera will automatically uninstall any remains of Magic Lantern.

New workflow and post-processing guide:

There are several 3rd party software applications that turn either your .RAW or .MLV files into cinemaDNG image sequences which is a recognised RAW recording format. These files can be edited in Premiere Pro CC natively or can be used in DaVinci Resolve.

Here’s a simple workflow I found very usable in OSX:

  1. Shoot your movie in the .MLV file format.
  2. (Backup your CF cards on your editing computer.) You can combine this with step 3.
  3. Convert the .MLV files to cinemaDNG using the RAW Magic app.
  4. (Losslessly compress your cinemaDNG files using the SlimRAW app & save 60% disk space)
  5. Import the cinemaDNG folder into Premiere CC via the “Media Browser” tab! (or into DaVinci Resolve Lite (free))
  6. Download Hunter’s LUT to apply a basic color correction to your files. Follow the tutorial for DaVinci Resolve here.
  7. Export your clips in DaVinci Resolve as proxies (also see above tutorial) or edit natively in Premiere CC.
  8. (Edit in your editing software and at the end make your final grade in DaVinci Resolve.)

For more in-depth information on Magic Lantern and the ongoing RAW hack consult the official Magic Lantern Forum.

Alternative / Windows / old workflow:

1. The camera produces .RAW files which need to be converted to something usable first.___This can be done with an app they wrote called raw2dng.___OSX app: download HERE, info HERE (Updated June 19th 2013)___If you’re on Windows get the .exe here: LINK 2. Open the raw2dng app and drop your .RAW files into the app, one after another. 3. The app creates new folders with a sequence of .dng files in them. 4. The .dng files that come out of this are raw files you can open in several programs. We

___found it can only be opened with Adobe programs which is unfortunate as this makes

___the workflow even more complicated. It does not work in DaVinci Resolve (yet).[UPDATE Mac]: There’s a new app that converts files to cinemaDNG which can be read by DaVinci Resolve: RAWmagic [UPDATE Win]: Here’s an apperation of the old app which will convert directly to cinemaDNG which can be read by DaVinci Resolve: raw2cdng (developer site)

Update: Faster workflow in Photoshop here: LINK

After Effects workflow: 1. We had to put the files for each shot into separate folders. 2. In AfterEffects the .dng files can be converted to any format you like. We chose to

___convert to ProRes 422 (HQ).

3. We imported the files into an empty project by selecting only the first file of each

___.dng sequence.

4. The RAW dialogue pops up. At this point you can color correct with the Adobe

___RAW tool, but we wanted to do a final grading later.

___So we just corrected the wrongly set “tint” value from +77 down to 0. 5. The file imports, but is interpreted as 30fps. To change that for the next shots we

___changed the default framerate in the AfterEffects preferences menu to “24”.

6. Right clicked the imported file and clicked “set proxy” to “movie”. 7. On the Render Dialogue that now pops up we set Render Settings to “Best Settings”

___and created a new Output Module for Quicktime ProRes 422 (HQ).

8. The rendering took forever and After Effects crashed numerous times.

___We really don’t like that application for this kind of workflow, sorry Adobe.

___Here’s a better workflow we found, the downside is it’s converted to 8bit: LINK

What Magic Lantern reveals – 5D Mark III capable of 4K all along

Available now! The new EOSHD 5D Mark III 3.5K RAW Shooter’s Guide

With the new Magic Lantern experimental build for the 5D Mark III, we have an amazing 4K and 3.5K 10bit lossless raw mode with Super 35mm continuous recording.

Did you know that the Mayans invented the wheel, but only used it for a child’s toy and didn’t really see the point?

Then the Sumerian civilisation came along and finally put it to good use! Well it turns out Canon have had sensors in their DSLRs since 2012 which have been capable of 4K video… but they just kinda sat on it.

Why did they ignore this technology and refuse to activate it?

Look at the RAW video menu above, just look at it.

It’s a veritable amusement park of camera geek features… a forbidden contraband hack that should never have been possible…and here’s how Canon probably feels about you enjoying yourself over it…

It is with the new 3.5K mode that things really start to get exciting

Alas it is with 3.5K not the 4K where the really illicit action is with the 5D Mark III.

This is a continuous recording mode with a workable low-res, low-fps preview of your scene for accurate framing.

More on that in a moment (I was so excited about it, I wrote a book about it).

The 4K is more a proof of concept, whereas the 3.5K mode is actually usable for all sorts of filming.

In 4K we have 3840 pixels horizontal, which is exactly a 1.5x crop (Super 35mm) of the full frame 22MP sensor. Magic Lantern doesn’t yet unlock the vertical resolution required for 16:9 but 3840 x 1536 is a beautiful cinematic result with 2.50:1 aspect ratio similar to cinemascope.

The 3840 x 1536 mode is part of a previously discovered sensor mode for 3K and 4K recording, but this mode didn’t work in 10bit or 12bit raw and the live view display looked like this:

Then Magic Lantern discovered a 3.5K mode which DOES record with lossless raw compression, meaning the data rate becomes manageable enough for recording to Compact Flash cards for longer than a few seconds. What’s more, this 3.5K mode allows the use of lower bit-depths such as 10bit and 12bit rather than the full 14bit of the uncompressed raw modes. The final big advantage of this mode is you can get a working live-view image, although the quality and frame rate is a big drop from the standard Canon live-view.

In 10bit with lossless raw compression the write speed required is 90MB/s for 3.5K raw, bang on the limit for continuous recording to compact flash card at the mammoth resolution of:

3584 x 1320!

The image is truly glorious to behold and is practically a Super 35mm 1.6x crop of the sensor. Perfect for APS-C lenses like the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8. Here’s a 3.5K frame capture from my shoot –

The various modes work as follows:

  • Continuous recording at 3.5K (3584 x 1320) 10bit lossless raw (working live-view)
  • Continuous recording at 3K (3072 x 1308) 14bit lossless raw (non-working live-view)
  • 2 seconds recording at 4K (3840 x 1536) 14bit lossless raw (non-working live-view)

The lossless raw discovery is what makes these resolutions recordable, bringing the data rate under the limitations of the compact flash card slot. 10bit is just the icing on the cake. I find the image to be very nice indeed in 10bit, not a noticeable drop in quality from 14bit.

The 5D Mark III has a full frame 5.5K sensor of course so depending on the resolution you choose to record at, these modes involve various crop factors over full frame –

  • 1.5x in 14bit 4k (Super 35mm)
  • 1.6x in 10bit 3.5K (Canon APS-C)
  • 1.86x in 14bit 3K (think Gh3)

So I think 10bit 3.5K is definitely the sweet spot here (with a nice 48% raw compression); the crop is a little bit much in 14bit 3K and the data rate is too high in 4K for continuous recording.

How practical is it?

My Shooter’s Guide goes into detail on this.

The 3.5K works creatively and is great for enthusiasts who want the ultimate image quality and raw for the cheapest price possible from a very advanced Canon sensor, in a small form factor.

These features are hacks, experiments and reverse engineered rather than officially enabled by the manufacturer. As a result, in the 3.5K mode with working colour live-view image, the refresh rate is slow and it reverts to monochrome when you hit record. Certainly better than nothing and it is a miracle this works at all. It’s all down to the incredible skill of the Magic Lantern dev team that we have this feature. I probably wouldn’t use it for paid work though.

It must be said the limited live-view picture does make a shoot more challenging… certain shots more tricky and does restrict you to mainly locked-down tripod shots. Lots of deliberate camera movement during the recording is going to leave you scratching your head as to true pace and timings of the action. Via HDMI you get a nice punched-in high resolution image which is ideal for focus checking, but composition remains on the back LCD.

The 1080p 60p raw has a nice fast high resolution live-view image though. Yes, it seems the 5D Mark III could do 1080/60p all along as well but Canon didn’t enable that either!!

Anamorphic mode 4K

The camera can also shoot in 4:3 aspect at 2240 x 1680 so one way to get continuous 4K RAW recording out of the 5D Mark III is to cheat.

With an anamorphic lens you can keep the vertical resolution at a very nice 1680 pixels, which is a higher vertical resolution than the camera shoots in 3.5K and 4K mode… quite close to the standard 2160 pixels tall you get from UHD in 16:9.

With a 2x anamorphic lens the image upscales to 4480 pixels wide in post, from the 2240 wide one out of the camera. Even when upscaled this way, I think 4480 x 1680 is more than enough resolution for great looking 4K although it will be a bit softer horizontally than the 3.5K!

Did Canon leave out 4K for technical reasons?

The 3.5K and 4K modes of the 5D Mark III do produce a bit more heat and run the battery down a bit quicker than the standard 1080p modes. Your card will get hotter as well. My camera has not shut down yet from overheating in 3.5K and I take comfort from the fact the 1D C is of the same 2012 generation of hardware and neither does that have any overheating issues shooting 4K. Inside the camera, the sensor does this 3.5K readout whenever you use the focus magnification tool (with or without Magic Lantern), so that part of the hardware itself is running within spec. Your sensor is not going to explode.

One possible technical reason Canon could have had for not including 4K is the rolling shutter is a bit worse than in 1080p, but not really much different to what my 1D C does in 4K. It’s very manageable and depends on how you shoot and what you’re shooting. It helps to use a wider lens and stabilisation. If Canon left 4K video out due to a bit of rolling shutter, they are wimps!! 🙂

What about cards? When the 5D Mark III was released in 2012 the new 1000x speed cards were only just coming into fruition. However if Canon had used MJPEG or H.264 to compress 4K we would have had a mini 1D C. It’s 14bit raw that’s the challenge for the cards, not 4K MJPEG.

What about battery life? With the sensor switched to a power hungry mode featuring a 4K pixel readout, it certainly does reduce battery life during use. The thing is, in stills mode and normal 1080p it doesn’t make a difference whether the camera features 4K or not. Here the camera would be set to standard live-view with a normal binned sensor readout. Furthermore shooting through the optical viewfinder would not even engage the sensor so there would be no impact in general use, only when shooting in 4K mode.

The image you get from this is simply outstanding. I am able to slide the exposure slider up and down in Resolve like George in Seinfeld uses his right hand. The shadows are just so clean, you see what looks like unrecoverable blackness and it seamlessly springs to life. The colours, as you’d expect from raw and a Canon sensor are just stunningly beautiful, like a raw still. Amazing dynamic range and detail. I found I was getting the best quality raw in Resolve of all the workflows, going to 10bit ProRes 4:2:2 in there is the best, then into the editing software (I explain my workflow techniques and recommended software in the guide).

Enjoy your 3.5K adventures!

Canon заблокировала Magic Lantern в последних прошивках камеры Canon 5D Mark III

По сообщениям на форуме Magic Lantern, в новых партиях Canon 5D Mark III, которые продаются с предустановленной прошивкой версии 1.3.3, невозможно установить альтернативную прошивку, которой, собственно, и является Magic Lantern.

Напомню, что данное программное обеспечение, которое уже несколько лет свободно распространяется по принципу “как есть”, существенно увеличивает функциональность ряда камер компании Canon. Фактически, это любительская модификация, которая особенную популярность приобрела среди видеографов и инди-фильммейкеров, людей, которые хотят снимать качественное независимое кино.

Так, в Magic Lantern имеется возможность снимать видео в формате RAW, а это большой плюс при постобработке. И многие люди все еще пользуются 5D Mark III именно по этой причине. Поэтому совершенно непонятно, почему Canon решила сделать такой шаг именно сейчас. Благо, на камерах со старыми официальными прошивками установить Magic Lantern можно, и способ откатиться с версии 1.3.3 на одну из старых уже найден.

Вовсе не секрет, что в последние годы лидеры фотоиндустрии, компании Сanon и Nikon, совершенно не радуют нас инновациями, вообще хоть какими-то новыми технологическими решениями. Наоборот, они сознательно выпускают обновленные версии своих популярных камер, характеристики которых практически идентичны их морально устаревшим предшественникам. А про устаревание можно говорить в связи с тем, что каждый из конкурентов активно развивает и продвигает на рынке свои технологии.

Panasonic продолжает баловать видеографов, в этом плане их аппараты подкупают функциональностью, удобством и поддержкой 4К с качественными кодеками и хорошим битрейтом. В рамках той же системы с богатым парком недорогой качественной оптики фирма Olympus делает ставку на фотографов, выпуская как совсем маленькие камеры серии PEN, так и более увесистые профессиональные решения, при этом их изюминкой является непревзойденная система матричной стабилизации. Fujifilm радует стильностью своих продуктов и выдающейся цветопередачей, обеспечиваемой фирменными матрицами X-Trans. Sony же в прошлом году успешно реализовала практически все позаимствованные у конкурентов фишки, выпустив ряд полнокадровых беззеркалок на все случаи жизни

В такой ситуации, на мой взгляд, рядовому фотолюбителю Nikon может быть интересен разве что миниатюрной серией Nikon 1, а последним бастионом компании остается флагман Nikon D4s, который по возможностям репортажной съемки пока еще не превзошли камеры, избавившиеся от ненужного в XXI веке зеркала. У компании же Canon таким бастионом является культовая, можно сказать, Canon 5D Mark III.

И тем более странно, что производители решили ограничить в использовании продукт за $3000. А что вы думаете на этот счет?

GUIDE: Shooting RAW on a Canon 5D mark III in 2014

A year ago we tested the Canon 5D mark III RAW hack by Magic Lantern which upgrades the camera to shoot impressive 14-bit RAW footage. In this year development has progressed and in this post we’re looking at what is currently possible and how to do it.

If you were looking for an Install Guide go HERE

Here’s a rundown of important new features since last year: 

  • Extremely simplified installation method
  • ML can now be uninstalled (no more bootflag)
  • Audio recording is possible
  • RAW file playback in low quality directly on the camera
  • improved workflow through cinemaDNG processing

In this post we will give you a quick update and instructions on how to work with Magic Lantern on the 5D mark III. The above points are the developments we found most important and we’ll give you a detailed overview below.

What it is

– It enables your camera to shoot 14-bit RAW image sequences which produce cinema quality results. – It’s a great tool for indie productions or those with little money who want to invest time to create beautiful results.

– Working with the 5D mark III requires time and dedication.

– The files are both a lot sharper and cleaner than conventional recordings, and they can be heavily color graded.

– It makes your Canon 5D mark III run on software developed for free and it is constantly being improved. Please help the developers: LINK

What it is not

– It is not bug free. – It will not replace a good RAW camera designed for cinema.

– It is not suitable for productions with bigger budgets as the workflow will slow you down and it is not laid out for professional production. (More on that topic in this article: Consider this before you shoot RAW on a Canon 5D mark III)

What you need

– A Canon 5D mark III. If you buy one, please get it HERE. – A simple SD card for the firmware. We used this one. – A good UDMA 7 card reader, we recommend this one for USB 3: LINK– A very fast CF card. You have the following options:

(You get 25 minutes of 1080p on a 128GB card)

Extremely simplified installation method

Our constantly updated guide on how to install Magic Lantern RAW on your 5D mark III, has recently been shrinked by half. That’s because the installation method has been dramatically simplified. When before you needed many complex steps to achieve the RAW hack, now it’s as simple as downloading a file and uploading the contents to your camera.

If you would like to shoot RAW on your 5D the first step is to install the Magic Lantern software on your camera. Please follow our step by step installation guide.(This process should be reversible and should not damage your camera. However you should know you do this at your own risk and we cannot take responsibility when you follow our guide)

ML can now be uninstalled (no more bootflag)

Last year when you installed Magic Lantern it would “set the bootflag”, or in words we non-programmers understand: It would make your Canon take 2 seconds longer to start-up, forever. This made a lot of people hesitant about wether they should proceed with the 5D RAW hack and it was certainly a point to consider when you ever planned on selling that DSLR again.

Well today it’s different. Not only can you remove the bootflag and uninstall any of Magic Lantern’s remains, but you can also do it very quickly and it’s simple. To uninstall Magic Lantern or just remove the bootflag please follow our step by step installation guide.

Audio recording is possible

Last year audio recording was not possible, instead the 5D mark III RAW with Magic Lantern simply produced a sequence of .dng files stored within a single .RAW file.

Now the new RAW module version 2 is here and you record your footage in the .MLV format. These files hold a 48khz 16-bit stereo audio stream and also timecode information. It seems the developers are still working on a way to move the timecode on after the conversion into the cinemaDNG format.

When converting the .MLV format to cinemaDNG a separate .wav audio file is being created. This audio information can be useful for syncing to external audio sources or even to hold audio recorded via the line-in port on the camera.

To record in the .MLV format go to the Modules Tab in the Magic Lantern menu and enable the mlv_rec module and restart your camera. To convert the .MLV file format refer to the post-processing section in our step by step installation guide.

RAW file playback in low quality directly on the camera

The playback functionality has been there a while, but it now works better than ever before. The quality can either be set to color or monochrome and you can choose to playback in realtime which skips frames or to playback each frame which is much slower.

On the left you can see the quality of such playback, which is mediocre, but still helps you see what you shot.

To playback you have to record in the .MLV format. You also have to enable the file_man and mlv_play modules in the Modules Tab in the Magic Lantern menu.

Improved workflow through cinemaDNG processing

Last year we only had DNG files that were incompatible with editing and color grading software and thus had to be converted to movie files with specialised software.

Today there are several 3rd party software applications that turn either your .RAW or .MLV files into cinemaDNG image sequences which is a recognised RAW recording format. The Blackmagic Camera for example can record in cinemaDNG. These files can be edited in Premiere Pro CC 7.1+ natively or can be used in DaVinci Resolve.

Here’s a simple workflow I found very usable in OSX:

  1. Shoot your movie in the .MLV file format.
  2. Backup your CF cards on your editing computer.
  3. Convert the .MLV files to cinemaDNG using the RAW Magic app.
  4. Import the cinemaDNG folder in DaVinci Resolve Lite (free).
  5. Download Hunter’s LUT to apply a basic color correction to your files. Follow the tutorial for DaVinci Resolve here.
  6. Export your clips in DaVinci Resolve as proxies (also see above tutorial). Or EDIT directly in DaVinci Resolve 11
  7. Edit in your editing software and at the end make your final grade in DaVinci Resolve.

Magic Lantern Nightly Builds

These builds have been around for some time, and they are unlikely to cause major issues.

In most cases, regressions are fixed quickly - if you report them.

Most of these builds are tested, to a limited extent, in QEMU. These tests are automated - if they fail, there might be either a real bug in the tested build, or a bug in the emulation. The only way to tell is by testing on real hardware and comparing the results - your feedback is welcome!

For recent features like Lua scripting, raw recording at 2K/3K/4K/10-bit/12-bit/LJ92/etc, please try the experimental builds (and report back!)

You are welcome to provide testing feedback, to help us identify any major issues that might be present.

These cameras are no longer maintained, but there is a working build available.

  • 5D (classic)Canon Firmware Version: 1.1.1

Your camera is not listed?
  • A port of a new camera model happens if and only if there is a developer who has the camera and sufficient time, motivation and skill to complete the port. (thanks CHDK)
  • If this describes you, then you may be able to help. Start by reading the development forum, the wiki, and the source code.
  • There are firmware dumpers available for most Canon EOS cameras (see below).
  • Porting guides: tutorial for firmware upgrades, EOS M2 walkthrough, any other camera ports (ideally same generation).
  • You can run both Canon firmware and Magic Lantern, to some extent, in QEMU. The emulation guide also covers initial firmware analysis and has some reverse engineering tips.
  • If you cannot find a firmware dumper, feel free to ask; just be aware this step won't magically bring a developer to work on it.
  • You may also ask for a portable display test FIR here (likely to work on most EOS cameras).
  • DIGIC 6 ports are possible, but progress is slow - 80D and 750D are likely to work first. Help needed.
  • DIGIC 7/8 ports are likely possible - you can help.
  • Some recent Canon EOS M cameras (M3, M5, M6, M10, M100) are based on PowerShot firmware. It's much easier to port CHDK on these cameras. EOS M, M2 and M50 are running EOS firmware.

These are small programs that can save the contents of your camera's ROM contents on the card.

The existence of a ROM dumper proves we are able to execute code on the camera, and enables anyone with the right skills to start looking into it.

  • Portable ROM dumper (all models running EOS firmware)
  • Unfortunately, Magic Lantern ports don't follow a schedule.
  • There is no plan, and there is no Magic Lantern organization that specifies which port happens next.
  • If there is work being done on a camera, there will be a development thread in the forum.
  • If there is no mention of development activity on the forum, there is no reason to ask about that camera's status: It is not supported, and there is no way for anyone to know if or when it might be supported. Your guess is as good as ours.
  • If you want your camera done faster, please join the development efforts.
Warning! Magic Lantern is not approved nor endorsed by Canon in any way, and using it will probably void your warranty.

We are not responsible for any damages to your camera.
