I currently have the 550d/T2i and am looking to move up.

I know this doesn't answer any of your question, but if I can just give my opinion, I don't think the T4i is worth an upgrade over a T2i. I own a T4i and have used a T2i, and they're so similar that I think you would be much better off saving up some more and making a more substantial upgrade, like to a 6D. I know it's quite a jump in price, but if you're really itching to replace your T2i, I'd do that over getting another Rebel (and probably over getting any other crop-sensor Canon right now).

Pick one:
- Tearing MagicZoom
- In sync MZ but all camera buttons unusable when enabled except for the MZ trigger key.

I'd rather have MZ in sync, even at the expense of being able to use other buttons.

I get that the idea is that it's the raw data from the sensor, and there is no compression or processing of WB or anything from the camera, but what sort of image will that get vs the standard.

Someone else will be able to give a better answer than this, but basically the raw video would probably give you an image that is sharper, contains very little to no noise reduction, has less banding, and has a greater dynamic range.

Could we downsample the RAW to 8 - bit? Would that be too much for the CPU to handle in real time?

I'm not too knowledgable on this stuff, but I think that would defeat much of the purpose of shooting in RAW. You might still get extra sharpness and such, but the real advantage of RAW is the extra bits. Right?

hello please can you tell me if it works on magic lantern canon 650 d and if so where to find this firmware I can say is just beginning in this world of photography.thank you !

The firmware is in the early stages of development right now, meaning it works to some degree but there are features missing and bugs that pop up. It's best if you wait for a later version to be released before you start using it, but if you really must try it now, you can find the files and instructions to do so just by going back through the pages of this thread.

so if we are making something like it´s the 1/9 of a default raw wich is 18MP maybe we can dream a little of taking HD video wich is only 2MP.

Each image may only be 1/9th the resolution (and, ostensibly, the size) of a full RAW image, but remember that HD video is taking a minimum of 24 of those frames every second.

Yeah.  Get something other than a DSLR for filming wedding photography. o.O  Particularly as you'll see the sensor over heat and the camera shut itself down after an hour or so (Depending on environmental conditions of course).  But yeah, if you're trying to be a wedding videographer, get some sorta run of the mill prosumer camcorder instead of a DSLR. o.O

I don't know, I've known people who do wedding videos with DSLR's and they make some amazing stuff. There are definite advantages to a camcorder, but definite advantages to a DSLR as well.
Same here, blade. I just got my 650D, my first personal camera I have ever purchased. As a film student, I am counting down the seconds until I can get ML running on this bad boy and unlock its full potential. I can't wait!
