It looks like Panasonic isn’t the only company not giving up on their previous range of mirrorless cameras despite bringing a new one out. Despite the recent EOS R announcement, Canon Rumors reports that Canon is planning to release two new EOS M mirrorless cameras next year. And, no, I doubt any of them will be full frame.
The original Canon EOS M mirrorless camera from 2013, the camera summarily dismissed by pretty much everybody as a pretty terrible camera, can now shoot 2.5K RAW video. Sort of. It’s all thanks to a new sd_uhs module in Magic Lantern which overclocks the write speed of the SD card.
It’s definitely a case of “Don’t try this at home!” unless you know what you’re doing or are willing to accept the risks, though. There have been reports of SD cards dying, and Magic Lantern currently doesn’t recommend its use. But it’s still available, and if it doesn’t kill anything lets you shoot 12Bit lossless 2.35:1 raw video.
