Magic Lantern RAW – Canon 5D Mark III (Body) Deals

The video community is running wild with all types of samples from the new Magic Lantern hack that enables RAW output from the Canon 5D Mark III (and soon other cams). The guys over there are doing some amazing work, so make sure you stop by and donate to get this project moving faster. The 11 stops of dynamic range pulled from a full frame sensor camera is an amazing combination to have.

I'm guessing once the ML menus have been refined and the workflow to process the RAW images becomes easier, this will create a second wave demand on the 5D Mark III. If you're looking for one, the Canon 5D Mark III currently retails for $3400+ (no current rebates), so as a reminder there are still deals available for Brand New, USA Warranty, Canon 5D Mark III cameras at below $2890 (check here).

    @Tai - If it says USA model with USA warranty, it should not be grey market. What some sellers do is unbox the cam + lens kits and sell them separately so some don't come in the original box, but will have all the manuals and software.

    Emm, any tips on genuine USA model purchases on ebay? The link you listed has many vendors claiming USA models, but research tells me many of these vendors are dishonest selling grey market cameras or even bait and switching mk2's instead of mk3's. $3500 from amazon is certainly close to the BMPC, so of course I'm on the fence about spending that much. Thank you.

    Does the raw thing really matter? Great if you have the 5D already, but if your on the fence wouldn't the Blackmagic 4k steal most of this thunder? The Global Shutter, the live 4k out, etc. Don't get me wrong, I salute the magic lantern group, and hope to see even better things for my 7d, but has the magic future of canon HD video been Blackened?
