1: yes
2: yes
3: not really, you just can crop.
No matter if you use RAW or h.264: you'll always have moiree with 5D2, and you'll always need CF. Btw: Komputerbay CF cards aren't really expensive.
Thank You for Your Fast response and Your help
I understand that moiree pattern will be always present but I noticed it is far more severe when I tried ml in the past, I do have cf cards but not that fast for raw and Komputerbay CF cards not present in my country ( Egypt ) and If I try to get it out of my country shipping will be huge + taxes, about improving h.264 bit rate what are the setting you recommend for me and any other advice You recommend in my case will be very much appreciated .. thank You again and again

hello to all
 I tried ML on my 5d mark 2 long times ago and the Moire was very bad also the fast CF cards are far expensive for me so vaf is not an option for me. my main work is Short films and I need very stable recording. that said my 3 questions now
1- is can I stick to the h.264 since I don't need raw right now and still use the great ml features like focus peeking and many others?
2- is it possible to increase h.264-bit rate a bit little as far as my Cards can handle ( about 50mbs cards ) ?
3 - using raw but something lite like 1280 by 720 raw ( my guess is that Moire may be more severe ) ?
what is the best option available for me in Your opinion?
thank You in advance and Sorry for my bad English 

""  But after working with it several times I felt there were some things that people should know """
You waited to work on Projects to find that the workflow is complicated and it takes a lot of space on memory card ???
ok thank You !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
so how do You find 35mm film camera ???
unpro tool too ?

— simply the Pro Golden rule to solve all Your Problems is to think before You Shoot :)
thank You for Your review and sharing Your thoughts with us , i am very new to using ML
” almost one month now ”
but i worked in the field for a very longtime 24 years.. so from my little experience in ML and my long one in the media field i can say easly
that ..
You are totally wrong ..wrong in my opinion
first thing i noticed that You wanted a professional results and workflow but You approached Your Project in non Professional way
i build my judge here not for the good reasons said above
but Your words
” Even with the new and updated in-camera playback feature it is not easy to tell how well a shot has turned out/// until You say ” to do it 100 times a day then you see that you lose a lot of time”
// well wasn’t that obvious b4 You Shoot ??????
if not then You was far away from pro cas pro tests everything b4 the real work ,,
and if You tested this and had this opinion before Shooting then this wasnt  a clever action and what was You trying then all 4 days You stayed with the camera ????? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Man there is a golden rule in Pro WORKFLOW ” test and judge and get Prepared and the most important word think please think before Shooting ”
that what i know since i was assistant Director in movies ..
i will not comment on the discovery You found after shooting that workflow is complicated cas this is the strangest thing i found  !!!!!!
all what You are wrong ” in my opinion of course with all my respect ” came from the unprofessional  way You approached this project with ,,
ALL Your Points does not need a real project to see if they are true or not ,,or if there are a work around it but ……
“” Another Important Rule ,,Pro do not waste a 4 days or 4 hours even from there valuable Preparing time to the Project in trying to learn and figure a new system they do that when they are not busy , can You imagine a DOP at the early years of cinema trying to understand what is anamorphic and how and why to do it just 2 weeks away from shooting and the middle of there valuable time ?????””
Man there is too much in Your Post ,, it seems to me like You may want to use a steadycam smoothly for the first time just 2 weeks away from Your Project how is that sounds ?? :) if You do that You will end like You did telling every one that steadycam is much complicated and not to consider it Pro enough to Your Level
.. there is another rule is called the right tool for the job if my Project is so much complicated and need a shot by shot Pixel Peeping and watching every single take to observe very fine details then as a Pro the first thing i do even b4 camera is Arrange what monitor what trusted connections etc as vincent laforet said once b4 if monitoring is needed to be very Precise then he wouldnt trust a monitor below 10000$
Man You Missed a lot in this Post and You Tortured Yourself in this Project not cas of ML fault but cas You wasnt doing the Pro approach
Last thing i wana ask You did You ever Shoot on 35mm film ?? cas if You didnt that may be the reason ,, and do not try to do it You will hate it it isnt Pro enough and complicated workflow than You ever think it is plus it is amateur the camera does not record sound and can not monitor what You did at all ” You can see what video assist bring to You and that is Lately only ” and You can not record a lot on single reel :) .. i miss super 35mm days it was the days of Pro People !
sorry for my Long Reply and sorry for my bad english as it isnt my main
and sorry if You hated my words i didnt mean to hurt at all
but promise me You will think before You Shoot next time :)
and Promise me that You will never use ML or any raw workflow on Your next News Shooting cas You will be unhappy again :)
