Maybe a job for the boys over there at Magic Lantern!

Not possible. The reason ML Raw works for the 5D is because of Live View. A feature that was co-opted in order to record what was being shown in Live View onto the CF card. There is no possible way to do this on the C100 because the processing is all done well before the stream shows up on the LCD.

On top of that, the SD card slot simply isn't fast enough to save a raw video stream, and there's no way to process it without replacing the Digic DV III processor chip inside the body.

In other words, don't hold your breath.

Richard:

Sorry, I was out all day and didn't see your question. I totally 100% stole this idea and this image from Slavikb, but it is working great. It is the Cinevate Universal Mount and the Blade rides right over the eyepiece. No cable issues and it keeps the entire rig compact still.

Re: Replacement for C100

Hey Dan,

I like that better than mine. Mine is a heavier bulkier mount from a chinese monitor I had kicking around.

Question: If you loosen the thumb screw, can you detach the monitor without unscrewing either 1/4 20 threaded end?

If so, I'm ordering one.

Re: Replacement for C100

Could you not put a 16x9 Cine Lock on one end of the Cinevate mount, as a quick release? They appear to be relatively small.

Re: Replacement for C100

Yes, you can. But it takes three washers underneath the thumb screw that you can't lose. One is a black nylon fitting, then a pot metal one, then a brass washer over that one.

Re: Replacement for C100

Just a quick note here -- this thread has been moved to Area 51 where it belongs. I want to keep the camera tech boards focused solely on *information* and rumors are the exact opposite of information.

Also, we don't link to rumor sites, not even in Area 51. And while I'm being curmudgeonly, I'll point out that a particular site's self-styled "rumor gauge" of BS1, BS2, BS6 etc. has absolutely no meaning and no application here, so please don't reference it as if it makes any difference, as if it were real.

Because it ain't real. Not until the press release drops. And then it gets real, and then we're on it. Meanwhile, BS is BS no matter what number you put next to it.

Thanks for understanding and remember, there's *always* new product coming down the road, but it can't make money for you until you have it in your hands. The camera you have *now* is what should be making money / art / a living / a passion for you, and that's what we're here to discuss -- what's here and now.

Nothing wrong with talking about what you'd like to have in a replacement to the C100 -- in fact, I encourage that sort of discussion wholeheartedly -- but please, keep the BS rumor mill sites off of this forum. Thanks again,

Re: Replacement for C100

It's all good, Richard -- let's keep it going about wants / needs / desires on a C100 successor.

Okay then, just give me a 12-bit (or even 10-bit) Canon 1DC and I'm set. Can it be that hard?!

Right, but what I meant was why would they put 10 bit, or 12 bit in the C100, when the C300 doesn't even have it? Canon would put 10 bit in a new C300, and then perhaps the file format of the the C300 into the C100. At any rate you can bet the new C100's price will be right back up there again...... which is too expensive! Now at $4500 it's not bad.

If the C100 is back up at $7000, then even I who is somewhat loyal to Canon would be forced into a GH4 against my will.
