I don't think this has anything to do with Magic Lantern being on installed but I reckon you guys are experts enough to read the log correctly. This is one of the logs, I haven't checked all of them and can post more if needed.

I think this is probably the problem :
Code: [Select]
1327: 2603.984 [CAPD] ERROR [LV] Image Power Failure
The error happened after the camera spent a whole night and the next morning in its bag in the trunk of a car under a hard sun. I picked it up after noon and problem appeared right then.

I have tried to remove and boot without card, change batteries, clear C.Fn, clear all settings and nothing works. I don't know if there are any software related thing I can try. I would just like to know EXACTLY the nature of the problem to know if I should repair it or move on to another camera.

Thanks guys.

960x540@24fps is maximum for continuous shooting at the moment, it is not possible to go higher regardless of card speed. Well, you can set lower fps to go a bit higher resolution if what you are planning to shoot does not have much movement or if it's a look you are going for and if you can work with short clips.


Good luck!

Thanks mate, that's a lot of useful info. The crop factor thing seems to be the most annoying for me. I like wide angle shots and I bought a Tokina 116 for that. The google doc doesn't make mention of the cropping factor in continuous recording. I'll try and check that by myself.

This is just a small project with friends, no real actors or crew so it's not that much of a problem if things go wrong. I like what you're saying about the footage looking like 8mm film and I'm definitely checking this thing up asap.

Hi everyone, this is long past due as I've been using ML for a while.

I was planning on shooting a short film in two weeks on the 5D RAW but that project got postponed to an unspecified date. So i thought I'd play around with the RAW thing on my trusty T2i. I have a small short-film coming in less than a month (much less ambitious than the other one) and figured it would make a nice opportunity. It would be the sequel of something I shot one year ago when I was kindda knew to the DSLR filmmaking (lots of things went wrong, starting with sunset being faster than expected) :

(I'm not embedding it because some might think this is a RAW capability showcasing).

Anyway, I was wondering if the actual capabilities are enough to consider to shooting RAW. The first post is not very informative, stating the problems rather than what's actually possible today. At what resolution can I hope for continuous recording ? I have a single SanDisk Extreme 30MB/s 16 GB and I'm getting the feeling it's not enough.

Also, during shooting, what can I hope for in terms of control. Is LiveView working properly during recording ? Is there some kind of playback (I'm guessing not but maybe it's possible to look at the single pictures ?) ?

Thanks a lot for the amazing job going on here.
