General Help Q&A / Re: Help! My Raw video are bad quality
« on: November 07, 2013, 06:04:38 PM »
Hi Raichu93,

I just started using RAW video on my 5D2 and sort of felt the way you did at first. You really need to light your scene as if you were shooting something for a client like an interview with a person on screen. Shoot in both RAW and H264 and then look at the difference of the two formats coming from the 5d2. That's what I did to see the difference in quality and wow you do see it!

However, h264 is by no means an ugly format and if things are well lit it looks freaking awesome too and is way more practical for lots of different situations , especially when you need to shoot a lot of footage and don't have 1000TB of space to save your RAW files. If you want the highest possibly quality from the 5D2 then RAW is the way to go.

Also, I've found that sharpness and the look of the RAW DNGs are influenced by how you adjust the parameters in PS. You can adjust then to be super soft or super sharp, have tons of dynamic range or crunch them to be contrasty as hell. RAW puts the look of the video in your hands, just like digital RAW still image files.

1880 X 1016  continuous on 5D Mark II :)

What make and size/speed card are you using?

I can only record continuous 1880x840 on my mark II with a Komputerbay 1000x 32gb. Am I doing something wrong? Should I be able to record a larger frame size? Also, I've read through these forums and the ML user guide, but cannot seem to find how to choose custom frame sizes in the ML menu. It's either 1320 or 1920 horizontal. How do I choose 1820 or 1780 for example? Thanks!
