I'am using 2020May29.5D3123 crop rec 4k mlv snd isogain build, I'am trying out shooting in 3840x1440px and would like to turn on SD overclock, is that possible with this build and where can I please find it? I have card spanning on and get pretty decent record times right now in 3840x1440px at 14-bit lossless but SD overclock could be sweet.

Thx in advance!

Thank you for your answer Walter!

Did the firmwareupdate step.

Thank you!
Hi community!

I have had an old SD card for the hole time to use Magic Lantern from and now trying to copy the files to another SD card but ML doesnt boot.
How do I proceed to use a another SD in the same 5D3 camera as before?

Best regards, advice happily received :)

I dont know how much you get for them now. I really like the design of 5D3 and think its almost built like a tank.
Have thinking of BMD Cinema cameras for 4 years but havent bought any. 5D3 is still the best camera I have.
And its so personal I will atleast always keep it for photos, but its the sentimental value since I had it for 8 years.

To maximize write speed/get maximum recording times for High resolutions on 5D3 (using Danne build):

CF: Sandisk Extreme PRO 160 MB/s UDMA7
SD: Sandisk Extreme PRO 170 MB/s UHS-I U3

-SD Overclock: 160 MHz
-Card Spanning ON (from RAW video submenu)
-10-bit lossless

-Use Frozen LV from RAW video submenu (instead of Framing preview; in broken/cropped preview presets)

-If the scene was static, after setting your scene and before hitting the recording button . . toggle the preview to Canon preview by pressing Info button (keep Frozen LV) to get rid of Global Draw and gain extra write speed.

I recorded around 1 Minutes and 52 Seconds in 3840x1536 1:1 @ 23.976 FPS in 10-bit lossless (I stopped the recording manually), I have exposed to the right in a sunny day . . pretty good recording time at this high resolution preset, I will make more tests in future.

-I calculated what was the write speed while recording that clip, it was around ~115 MB/s.
Wow thank you very much! Will buy that SD card and try it later! Thank you for your detail response about 3840px!
Thx for posting Paul! Your Washington Ferry video is the best quality I've ever seen from MagicLantern. A video I really enjoy watching!
Watching your videos shot in 3840x1536px is really nice, the detail is way much better then what I use myself. It feels like 5X more details or around.
Shooting with exact same settings like you do is something I would really try especially the 12-bit 1:1 1536 height. If you would do a little tutorial with some small photos of settings and the build you longest 12-bit record time in it would be really cool.
And some other tricks to somewhat get a live preview while shooting.

What SD card are you using?

Sweet filmic colors! And sweet intro!
Colors are really really nice especially at the dinner table!
I think you missed the point and workflow with different LOGs. The point and workflow is, LOG takes less space as you know but if you send them in Arri LOG for example they have to apply ARRI LOG when working with it, they can't apply BMD Film LOG on it for example. This hole thing sounds like a mess with colors.

And the graded end result doesnt look anything close to this i guess:

ISO 1250 isnt very high for the 5D3. Even at 3200 you can have good result with some slight color noise reduction.

They have Cinelog themselves?
If it is 16-bit files I would raise white level before you send them over to max which is 16383 and with standard black level. You can easily adjust that in MLVapp.
I think the best you can do is to send them lossless DNG files. If they dont specify what type of LOG its impossible for you since there is so many LOG, Canon/Arri/Sony/BMD-LOG and soo on.

Correct ML unrelated by comparison

"unrelated by comparison" what?

Wow what can I say. The best part about it is the wonderful grading, so nice colors to watch! Ofcourse the image is really good in this 5.7k mode but the colors wow! Well done!

Do you grade inside MLVApp?

Congratulations for really beautiful work!
For me it sounds like you should grade your MLV footage in Lightroom.

Davinci Resolve can take a while to learn, especially the raw settings.

Yep. 10 bit was enabled for more record time in 2.8K Mode.

Looks good, good grading! It really looks like film. It would be fun to see how it looks on Vimeo, since Youtube dont work well with grain. I imagine it looks great offline.
This is a fun thread, now when watching the general popular creators on Youtube they do the same, shooting in 1080p and uploading in 4k/UHD.

For example PotatoJet explains he do that when shooting with his A7s3 in 10-bit in this video
And also says its the same for all of them like Peter McKinnon, Matti Haapoja. So what I saw in quality has to be right. And I have to say that PotatoJets 1080p video looks superb uploaded in UHD.

To bad 50mm1200s found MagicLantern forum, and glad I stayed with what I saw and didnt view his graphs that compared nothing. I should move on and go forward yes. But its cool that 2021 people still shoot in 1080p and upload to UHD
Hi Magic Lantern members,

I post here sometimes and today aswell. I've been thinking of trying to record in UHD anamorphic resolution but I like the preview and easyness off 1080p raw.

I've learned much over the years what settings in Resolve yeild high quality footage, and especially from a FullHD source. As I only like UHD on Youtube I tend to upscale to UHD.
FullHD looks very bad there. I've seen som Vimeo uploads recently and I might go back to that path.

The recording part isn't anything special since its 14-bit 1080p.
400 5.6 L lens and 5D3 and tripod is the setup. Nice feeling and composition feels most important. ISO 1600 is the highest ISO in this video.

I like colorful grades with a bit off contrast, this is not a flat look, the power off raw here lies in the colortwist, you might see tendese to banding because of big twist in color.
No LUT, instead I use the 3 pages of HSL in Resolve in the curve section. I use SuperScale setting to upscale and I imagine raw footage result in higher quality upscales.
I really like the noise reduction page in Resolve aswell as the Contrast Pop sharpening.

Hopefully you think the quality and grading is good, I've enjoyed recently to watch others UHD recordings and grades but this is only 1080p.

Hope everything is well with you during these surcumstances, good new year and XMas!

Hi wib,

What grain did you use? Cinegrain or built in Resolve grain? Or similar product?
Nice grade! Vimeo does a good job preserving the quality especially from the grain.

Really nice like the high quality.

Is it a Canon 16-35 lens and what version? looks good

Vimeo quality preserves the grain aswell, i miss Vimeo
You need less GPU power then you think for 1080p CDNG at 25fps for realtime playback. Ofcourse integrated doesnt work but any GPU Nvidia 780Ti and up manage.

I have realtime playback in Ultra HD 25fps CDNG and doing superscale that involves noise reduction and sharpening. But then I have my computer for other stuff then Resolve sometimes with several 250W GPUs.

Please note that these artifacts can also be caused by the monitor.  If high-resolution footage is watched on a lower-resolution screen, you get such fake aliasing even if the footage is shot in one of the 1x1 modes.  Footage should always be rescaled to the resolution of the screen on which it will be watched.  At least, this is my experience.

Yes maybe, in this case it is 1080p footage upscaled to UHD/4k watched on a UHD/4k display. So in this case its the footage its post number #20 thats the one.

Resolve does a much better work when using superscale function instead of upscaling 1080p sequences from MLVapp, the upscale should be done in the debayring process if its MLVapp do it there, if its in Resolve do it there.

I think thats the answer for bad edges. I dont't know what videofiles you export form MLVapp but if you export 10bit 1080p from MLVapp and then upscale in Resolve with standard upscale function, yes you will have aliasing problems, but this isnt about 5D3 this will happen on any camera.

for the moment im sticking with 1080-3k-4k dng exports and if I have a serious aliasing problem I'll definitely render as prores in alexa log (with in mind that there might be some banding)

Why would you have aliasing problem with 5D3 i shoot i 1080p and never see that even when upscale. Check your settings in resolve is my advice

I'm working on an R6 10bit vs 5D2 10bit video. Probably not the same but close enough right?

Not close enough for me :) you know why :)

The quality of R6 is outstanding ofcourse

You two should do a collab together. This raw postprocessing and quality at shooting is also outstanding. I post his forumthread here:
