      If your looking at video capture.. consider looking into an Atomos Ninja also.. I'm not intimate with their use with a Canon  except to say that they are being used widely with Canon DSLR's. I am with the D800's & D4's ..We are shooting uncompressed video directly into the Ninja bypassing the internal cards..What this also means is that were shooting directly into SSD's,  so size is not an issue anymore. The SSD's are getting fairly cost effective now and work excellant with video capture. The Ninja has a seperate viewing screen and provides many of the video options not presently availble for DSLR's.. The 5dmIII will capture 30fps at 1080P.. Canon released a model (EOS-1D C   last year that shoots 4k video.. (4096 x 2160) presently @ 24FPS.. which is quite a bit more then 1080P.. (1920 x 1080)... actually double +..

      As has been in the news lately the Magic Lantern developers have managed to get raw video from Canon DSLRs. For panorama makers this has a lot of potential for video capture of panoramas as you have a lot more dynamic range, and you are not shortening your shutter life if you want to shoot thousands of panoramas (though it might kill your camera otherwise).

      You need fast cards to capture in the highest resolutions. I can get 24 fps at 1920 by 720 without dropping frames on my 5DmkIII but full 1080p HD is possible with more recent versions I think (this is with a 1000x CF card). You can choose custom croppings that give you eg. 1380 by 1280 pixel captures -- good for say getting most of a 10.5mm Nikkor on FF image circles. Or you can use very narrow formats eg. 360 by 1080 with higher frame rates.

      The DNGs you get (after processing the raw captures files) look and behave exactly like regular raw still images from Canon -- with all the color correction etc capabilities. I have been using Bridge to process the DNGs. The data rate is large with large file croppings -- like 15minutes on a 64Gb CF card -- though this would be not such a concern for pano makers probably
