    Canon just announced that later in the spring a firmware will be available for HDMI RAW video output. Why make an announcement of something that is still several months away. Must be trying to hold on to the market share.

    No joke, but still way cool.

    Now it will be interesting to see what benefits to the video occur.

    I wonder how much of the darks and highlights preservation are the codec and how much are the image sensor. Look forward to seeing the video output.

    How you liking your Miii Rekindle?

    Thats great news but they should also "uncripple" the downscale algorithm to get a real FullHD resolution out of this cam (like advertised). The electronics are able to do that but I think they're afraid they won't sell any other ridiculously high-priced cinema cams.

    When this firmware is released the Hyperdeck Shuttle 2 would be the best bang for the buck! 10bit uncompressed or Apple ProRes 422 HQ for $345,-

    Love the 5D MK III. It is far superior to the 7D and even the 5D MK II. When shooters who are using the cropped sensor move to the full sensor they will be amazed. The comparison is without a doubt better.

    I have been using my m2 for a long time, about to upgrade and not quite decided yet.

    Great news for MKIII owners. Bad news for those who bought the Sony A99 & Nikon D800. They should have release the upgrade now as a gift from Santa.

    Pot-a-to, Po-tat-o I say. The Mark III and it's upgrades are better, yes-- but aren't they supposed to be? I hope they live up to more and better upgrades to get the best out of the excellent equipment we've already bought.
