by Barry AnderssonRecently Canon announced the latest firmware update for the 5D Mark III camera (Version 1.2.1). The exciting new feature here for video is the clean HDMI out on the camera that allows you to record the signal to an external recorder. The clean HDMI out sends the video feed over the HDMI cable without any of the menus or markings so it can be recorded and used for your edit.
