Oh and that "Duh, of course is best" was sarcastic. What IS the right way?

Ugh... So there's part of me that wants to start shooting film, and part of me that wants to try medium format... Any opinion on buying a used Bronica as a foray into both worlds? It's relatively inexpensive to get a body, finder, and lens, especially compared to the Hasselblad used market.

I'm honestly thinking about cracking open my EOS 7D (which I use for video), removing all of the image processing IC's, overclocking the crystal oscillators (or equivalent) connecting a CF card / local RAID array directly to the CMOS sensor, and finally using a small active air cooler to prevent overheating. This would eliminate all of the rest of these silly artificial limitations on video resolution, frame rate, audio gain control, compression, and chroma resolution.

It's probably 50/50 I end up bricking the camera but I think the end result may be worth it.

I did want to ask you guys though what interface the CMOS sensor uses to connect to the video processing IC, or if it's strictly proprietary.

I found this entertaining. Their "professional" equipment is quite funny.

It's VERY proprietary. It's hard enough for people to develop custom firmware for a camera... You'd probably need an EE degree to do what you're thinking...

Lay off the ganja. 50/50 is more like 120%. Connecting a CF card to the sensor wat. You do know how electronics work right?

I'd say it's greater than that, not to denigrate your abilities or anything. This might be worth trying on a less expensive DSLR first, maybe a T1i or something.

I'm pretty sure that the data is not "controlled" by Canon's firmware until it hit their video processing IC, which means that no custom firmware would need to be developed. Maybe I'm a little off base, but I'm just trying to intercept and collect the RAW data before it is manipulated by any of Canon's circuits which hackers have had such a hard time getting through via software.

I guess I'm decent at EE, but I do have a friend with an EE degree who can help out if necessary.

You know what I mean. The goal is to intercept and record the raw RGB data from the I/O path. I'm just trying to find out if it's encrypted, etc. If I didn't know what I was talking about I wouldn't even think about risking a $1200 camera attempting to do something crazy like this in the first place.

Maybe I should do that... I may save my 7D's life, although I honestly doubt I am actually going to break anything seeing that I am using more passive measures. But hey, what do I know? Maybe it has a switch that triggers when you open the DSLR to auto self-destruct... jk
