Share Your Videos / Red Bull X Fighters in Hawaii! Canon 5DMKIII RAW
« on: June 19, 2013, 12:34:48 AM »
The Red Bull X Fighters have come to Hawaii! Great show and crazy stunts! Sorry my camera work wasn't great. I brought a monopod, should have had my tripod with me. And it was really hard tracking these guys.

EDIT by SDX: please embed you videos next time

EMKE recording new music in the studio. I'm testing out my Sankor 2x Anamorphic lens using a Canon 5DMKIII with Magic Lantern RAW June 3rd build. Shot at 4:3 1600x1200, converted to 1080P in After Effects with a 2.40:1 Ratio.

EDIT by SDX: please embed you videos next time

This video was shot using Magic Lantern's new Canon 5D mkIII RAW. Shot in studio in a few hours, it was a very enlightening experience shooting with a RAW workflow.

Equipment used:
Canon 5D mkIII w/ Magic Lantern RAW May 17 build
Lexar 64GB 1000x CF and Transcend 64GB 1000x CF
Canon 16-35mm F2.8L
Nikon 50mm F1.8 AI
Canon 85mm F1.2L
Canon 100mm Macro

Music video for the teen group EMKE shot over the weekend.  Using May 17 build on a Canon 5D mkIII.  No sound yet, so I did all syncing by hand.  That plus the current RAW workflow meant I spent a TON of time doing this.  But the image is great, there's no doubt about it.  I look forward to shooting more with the new builds.  Thank you again to the Magic Lantern Team!  Please check out the video and support your local teen music groups!

I've tested this too on OSX Mountain Lion.  Working great for 8GB file so far!  I'll make a test tomorrow with a larger file.  Great work this is awesome!!!

Hey guys,

First, congratulations on the breakthrough: it's mindblowing, I feel like Darius Khondji  8)

However I do have the same battery draining (when camera off) problem as nahua below, on 6D. This is fairly worrying... anyone else having this problem? Devs?

Cheers, and thanks again for the great work.
Yeah my 5D mkIII battery drains real fast.  I have the battery grip with 2 batteries.  After an hour my batteries are around 40%.  They aren't that old, and I don't remember them draining so fast with the H.264 recording.  I do think this has to do with live view on all the time and also constant recording to the CF cards.  In any case, I think I need to get more batteries. Another thing, my camera is still "working" - LED blinking - even if it's off.  So I pull the battery every time I put my camera away just in case.

Look if "Power saving" is set to "Disable" on Canon menu. If it is, that shouldn't happen.

Yes I was having this problem too.  During recording I thought it was the hack crashing my camera.  But it happened during playback too which is strange.  I looked at power saving and it was set at 1 minute.  I changed to disable and it's fine, I can record long clips.  Just remember that it will stay in live view mode continuously, so don't point your camera at the sun otherwise it'll burn the sensor out.  LOL

I was actually trying to test out my CF cards yesterday.  On my Transcend 64GB 1000x card, on the May 17th build I couldn't get past 78.1 MBs so I got dropped frames at 1920x1080.  I went back to the original May12th build and I could again record 1920x1080 at 81 MBs with no dropped frames.

However a funny thing happened.  After looking at my video files, I found out that I was recording BOTH H.264 internal and RAW to the CF card.  I guess with the May 12th build, you have to go into the menu to start recording.  I must have forgotten that the start/stop button didn't start RAW, but I hit it and the H.264 started.  My H.264 clip is actually something like 5min long, but I started and stopped RAW recording from within the menu.  So I have exact matching video files of H.264 and RAW.  I have them in my video, and I also graded the H.264 to see the differences.  The RAW recording is choppy, probably because of dropped frames and recording both types of files.

Take a look and tell me what you guys think:

I'd like to thank the developers, all this work is just awesome!  However I have problems with the battery consumption.  Even after my 5dmkIII is off, the LED still blinks from time to time and my camera stays warm.  Also, battery power goes down real fast.  I have to remove the battery if I'm leaving it alone for awhile.  Any ideas?
