If preview is broken, the only way to go is raw recording.
If preview is normal, you can record in standard mov format.

If preview is broken, you probably can see a preview created by magic lantern, by holding the shutter button on half press.( I think that’s the default option, otherwise you need to select this in raw video menu).still the only way to record this is in raw format.
