Tragic Lantern / Re: Raw video on 50d and 40d

Yes, but you'll need something like a 12mm focal length to get 50mm full-frame equivalent in 1:1

Basically, multiply your lens focal length x4 and you'll be 'roughly' correct when the APS-C and raw crop factors are taken into account

Makes me wonder why most people seem to be neglecting the full hd crop mode on here?
Is there a reason why most people are opting to record with the lower resolution, aliasing and moire filled full sensor mode?

I ended up buying a GH1 recently, but im thinking the 50d would be better in video, here are my reasons apart from the 14bit raw and my question at the end.
1. The GH1 has a smaller sensor, in effect a crop size when using say a 50mm 1.8, compared to the same lens which is great on aps-c size sensor.
2. I'm having to buy a smaller focal length lens with wider aperture to get effective video on the GH1.

Now my question, if anyone could be kind enough to help me out. Could I use the 50d in 1:1 cropped 1920x1080 recording and use a small focal length lens, say 28mm or even a 20mm on it, to increase the FOV of the cropped image to something comparable to the 50d's full sensor recording on a 50mm lens ???

hope that makes sense, any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you for the reply Andy600 and Rockfallfilms.
Would I be correct in thinking the 50d with the latest tragic lantern can do 1920x1080 for at least 1 minute of recording?

is the 50d raw video capability comparable to a hacked gh2?
I know on paper the 50d would be better, but if you guys had the choice to choose a camera for videography... GH2 or 50d right now, which would it be?

Torn between the 2 cameras, make the decision for me please.
