With the new firmware for the 5D Mark III we are getting clean HDMI out. For those interested in using an external recorder for video this is huge. I found this great video online by Stefan Czech and thought I’d share it for those who looking for more info on the subject. While the video is a little long and wordy, it is very thorough and covers pretty much everything.
Are any of you interested in recording via HDMI? Why/why not?
Wondering what the difference between the Canon 5D Mark III and the Canon 6D is? This is a great question and an important one for those looking to get a full frame camera. You’d be surprised at how many subtle differences there are. Dave Dugdale from Learning DSLR Video has done a great job with his comparison. Be sure to check out his 6D training series as well.
Remember when the 5D Mark III came out and many of us said “Ah, well I’ll wait until the price drops before I get one” Well friends, that day is upon us. The 5D Mark III just dropped down to $3199 from the original $3499. Not bad, especially since we will have clean HDMI out on the mk3 in April. And the 5D Mark II can now be had for $1699 thats a long way from the original price of $2499. Hard to believe I bought a well used 5D2 for $1800 not long ago.
This is huge. Canon announced that they will be releasing a firmware update for the 5D Mark III that will allow a clean HDMI signal out of the camera. I am very curious to see how this will affect the sales of other low end Canon large sensor cameras like the C100.
