Earlier this month, Canon released a firmware update enabling clean HDMI out on the 5D Mark III. This means you can record less compressed footage to an external recorder. Everyone seemed very excited, so we decided to do a test comparing the internally recorded H.264 footage to the externally recorded ProRes footage with an Atomos Ninja 2. Watch the video and read our thoughts about the test below.
Last Fall, Canon announced that an exciting new firmware update for 5D Mark III would be coming out this year. The news of the new firmware was so exciting because it allows the Mark III to send out uncompressed HDMI output.
The new Canon 5D Mark III Firmware 1.2.1 can be downloaded here.
All Stray Angel 5D Mark III’s will have the new update for rentals.
