Quick comparison between raw vs compressed H.264 on my Canon 5D Mark III.

I am mostly testing out the white balance first to get that right before I start doing tests outside.

I will try to do a video on my workflow for post processing the raw video in the future.

The only thing I processed for the raw video was White Balance and a little bit of sharpening.

Contrast Surprise

I noticed that the raw had a little more contrast than the H.264 version (that was surprising) so I added just a hint of contrast to the H.264 to help even out the comparison because for this test I mainly wanted to test for detail only and not other items like dynamic range.

How Do You Set WB When Shooting Raw?

So is there a way to not have raw video default to 6200 Kelvin and a +66 tint? I bet there is a menu item I have missed within the Magic Lantern menus that will allow for WB changes to be transferred to programs like Adobe Camera Raw to it remembers how I shot it.
