Re: 60d 7D proof

I know the statement might dissuade you, but I think the statemen tabout "breaking the camera" is there for legal reasons for the developers. If you read the side affects for aspirin, it will say "may cause death". They have to say it, (and I think it could have been said differently) but you should assess the risks with other criteria. I think risks are very minimal, and haven't heard of one bricked camera with thousands of users.

But, understand that I am in no way responsible either! :-)

Is this a software feature or hardware? I wonder if ML developers can add this feature to other cameras?

Re: 60d 7D proof

This whole essential thing has been done to death by now, but often people leave out what line of work they are in.

I am a ML addict, but I am not sure I would use it at a wedding. For film makers, I think there is a more persuasive argument. Also, we are talking about hundreds of releases and versions on several camera platforms, and referring to them all as one thing here, which is where generalisations can become worse than useless.

Here is my generalisation: Try it, it almost certainly won't break your camera. You might find that it turns your off-the-shelf space ship into a temperamental millenium falcon, which once you know it's foibles, can be coaxed into amazing things. If you have enough money for a star destroyer, buy that, and spend the extra time you saved on tweaking by plotting to crush the rebels.

Re: 60d 7D proof

Star Wars pun apart I believe that ML symbolizes the spirit of the using of a stills camera for video like all of us do. I don't really think it's about being cheap and getting great IQ out of what's generally considered small change in pro video production nowadays. I believe it's about having the possibility to tweak and tinker, even having to go to extra complications, to achieve a superior product.
