Yes. in fact the 5DMIII has a built in filter which BTW, you can remove if you're brave enough . . . Check out James Miller's post on Vimeo:

The picture is almost as good as that of the VistaVision. Same vivid colors, same resolution. Great! Hate to hear that "film is better". Film is not better, it's worse because of grain.

What is the algorythm of calculating the size (in bytes) of the one minute video file depending on the video resolution? Is that, for instance, (1592*1062*14*24*60)/8?

The common question: does ML plan to introduce a 12 bit or on-the-fly lossless compressed version of raw? Sorry for the offtopic

I think shooting at 900-something by 500-something  is enough to get a good picture for DVD, and it gives the time for the computer to copy the raw files from the other card, am I right? I've been shooting on Beta SP (PAL), at the picture was quite good, though it has worse resolution than 50D at that res might have.

I think the workflow may be the next: you record ML firmware on both cards,  working with the second card as the first card is backing up, then erasing all raw files from the first card and swap the cards. And so on. I think if shooting at 1584x1058 is not nesessary, one could shoot in lower resolutions to get more recording time on one card, if the result is DVD. So the computer could be in time to finish backing up the raw files.

Thank you so much. I've studied the topic a little more and found out that overheating is really not the problem. The main problem here isn't even the HDD speed because I really can use the simplest MacBook Pro with a Thunderbolt connection and a SATA III HDD (I think no need in SSD because mechanical SATA III HDD can write at 150 MB/s) plugged to it. The main problem here is to find the fastest card reader that can go the full bandwidth of the 1000x CF card at reading. Because 10 (or so) CF cards costs a fortune.

Oh, and that's when using ONE camera and ONE set of two cards. Professional shooting of the thing such as a concert requires using at least two cameras. I can plug another HDD in the bay to the same Thunderbolt port, but what am I to plug a card reader to, especially when it's USB 3.0 one?

So, a lot of problems...

Hello, I'm a newbie here, from Russia. 

That's the great thing that you, ML, do. One can get a cinematographic camera for a fraction of a cost, not needing to get an expensive Kodak film for $100/can, to develop and scan/telecine it. All you need to start shooting in almost cinema quality is to install the ML firmware, get the quickest SD or CF card you can, and here is it. Our Russian film cameramen don't agree with me, though.

I've got a few questions and thoughts on shooting raw, the main of those is this one:

If you can get a 50D with ML, two 64 GB 1000x CF cards, a card-reader, and an external HDD connected to the notebook, then you can shoot in raw for how long you want to, for the 2 hours or so. A concert, for instance. All you have to do is to swap CF cards, copying raw files from one card to the external HDD as the second card is working in the camera. Am I right? Will the 50D overheat in a few minutes of almost continuos work?
