The Original Canon EOS M Can Shoot 2.5K Raw Video with Magic Lantern

Canon’s original EOS M flopped as the company’s first contender in the emerging mirrorless camera market, but now third-party hackers are working to unlock more of its potential. And they’re making progress: using Magic Lantern, the EOS M is able to shoot 2.5K raw video.

Canon Watch reports that camera hackers have been testing the “highly experimental” sd_uhs module in Magic Lantern, which overclocks a camera’s SD memory card interface to allow for higher write speeds.

For the EOS M, the overclocking allows 70 MB/s of data to be written to a card instead of 40 MB/s.

The result is that the EOS M can shoot 2520×1080 (2.5K), 5x zoom, 24 fps, 12 bit lossless compressed raw footage.

Here are a couple of sample videos by Synth & Sundry:
