Camera-specific Development / Re: Canon 5D Mark II / 5D2
« on: November 22, 2014, 05:14:25 PM »
Hi there, folks.  I am just discovering this wonderful option from MagicLantern and want to make sure I will be able to implement everything properly before running the firmware on my 5Dii.  Please accept my apologies if I have posted this in the wrong place or am asking questions that have already been answered elsewhere.  Any help would be much appreciated! 

I do not have a USB3 port.  My computers are two pre-2010 laptops and a mid 2012 Mac Pro.  I use the Lexar FireWire 800 reader.  Does this already make the upgrade something I should avoid? 

As well, I have been researching which CF to get... What is the difference between the Lexar 1000x and Lexar 1066x?  The price is lower on the 1066, so I wonder if there is something different about this card that would not work with MagicLantern raw? 

The resolution of the movie is lower than if I use standard Canon firmware.  How does that work?  Is there not a loss in quality when the resolution is scaled up ever-so-slightly in post?   

I am an audio visual artist and shoot experimental videos.  A friend of mine who color grades for a living mentioned that the only thing he'd change about my output would be the camera, to avoid the h264. 5D-ness that has become a part of my work.  I agree with him. I really don't dig the glowing reds and in post there is only so much that can be done to grade the image.  Would this firmware update be a good solution?  I worry when reading about corrupt frames, etc...
