I offered to do it myself or at least to act as an escrow if someone else wants to do it. Si far no one has replied to my request to send me a PM if willing to contribute. I do restate my offer though.

I have just pm'd nanomad that I stand by my offer to contribute 1/3 of the cost of a 70D body. I invite you guys to join!

I understand there can be no guarantees, but that's life. If you want this to happen, sharing in a minor portion of the cost is the least you can do. Most of the resources will come from nanomad anyways, via his time and opportunity cost to take on this project.

Greetings to all of you. I helped kick off the donation and came through with a third of the cost.

You know that I know there were no guarantees as to the outcome of the port.

Some info now and then I would appreciate though.

Cheers
Philipp

We're a hair over 2/3 to the goal.

I have topped up the remaining amount.

Thanks Nanomad and ML community for giving us hope ;)

If you don't mind me asking, what folks? The folks in this thread (it's the ML forum with video bias after all), the folks you know, or the folks in general? [...]

It's legit you argue that ML should first receive what you personally need, but I cannot help but mention that all folks I know buy a 5d3 for serious video (cf card = full hd raw). The people I talk to buy a 70d because it's a still achievable "all around" camera with good phase af as a 7d replacement for general shooting. [...]

I think I disagree with your comment on the 5d3 and "serious video". It's just too broad to be accurate. Righ now, the 70D is unmatched in terms of usable autofocus in video, which I think is why most people are excited with the possibility of a ML port. If your shooting style for instance involves glidecams, the 5d3 is pretty limited in what it can do. You are basically stuck with wide angle and closed aperture, because otherwise stuff is out of focus. Manual focus pulling is out of the questions of course since it would ruin balance. Here the 70D shines because it allows actual autofocus with shallow depth of field at a decent success rate, which is a real game changer. I suspect even "serious" videographers would consider it as a B-cam for this reason.

This is why I decided not to go with a 5d3 right now but hold on to my 70D and put up a chunk of money to explore the possibility of a port. My hope is its decent buffer - if sometime within the next year it gets to support beyond 720p in bursts of a couple of seconds, I would be a happy camper. If not, that's life.

Great to hear that things are beginning to move!

As mentioned above, willing to put down a third of the cost of a 70d to help make this happen. How shall we organise the rest of the fundraiser?

cheers

I have a 70D and can get you the fw dump if you guys have some basic instructions for me.

Plus I'd be willing to put down 1/3 of the cost of a 70D. Someone else with me on this?
