Raw Video / Re: 550D raw video recording port official thread

So, I'm gunna give it a go today. What build/components should I look for for 550D? Are there an install instructions for 550D yet or do I just follow 5D stuff?

Go to the link I posted a few post back. Copy the bin file and the raw module folder.

Hopefully the 10bit hack will help us get closer to full hd. We can only wish.

Ooh, that's pretty sweet. A very different look to regular h264. The low resolution makes it really soft, but the DR makes it sooooo filmic. I love it.

Ode to RAW:
If the 5D mkIII is the cine camera,
The 550D is the super 8 film maker!
Film is dead long live the Lantern

Shawn_lights those images are remarkably sharp! How many frames are you able to record in one shot? LV on or off?

LV was on. I actually had to stop the recording. It was running continuously.

Do you have global draw off etc?

Shawn_Lights, can you share which build you are using? I am getting only 19fps stable with the same reso

I used this build: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5582.msg40579#msg40579

Auto ETTR Build. I have a 45mb/s Sandisk Extreme card.

I get continuous recording at 1120x374 at 22fps (using FPS override)

Lovely detail. Magenta/Green slider needs to be moved to 0.

Idea: It would be nice to automatically toggle/disable global draw upon recording. Then you could set all of your levels etc and when you hit record have maximum performance.

Definitely. Perhaps a shortcut defined button.

On my EOS 600D with a card that reaches the 21 MB/s limit I was able to get:

- 1280 X 720 | stops after  71 frames | ~ 10 of them are purple frames
- 1280 X 400 | over 1500 frames | ~ 40 of them are purple frames
- 720 X 720 | over 1500 frames| ~ 30 of them are purple frames
- 960 X 540 | over 1500 frames | ~ 30 of them are purple frames

Settings: Golbal Draw = Off, 1080 24p mode, fps override = Off

The card was fresh formated. Quite nice, isn't it?

I also have that problem with these colorful dots if I check the images with Google Picasa ...
But when I open them in Lightroom 4 they disappear ???

That's damn good. purple frames popping up randomly or only in the beginning?

May 13 (tear fix build) Lexar 600x 16Gb.. It's pretty solid, no dropped frames @ 1280x720 and no tearing or any other weirdness. I have to hit the menu button to stop recording which screws up the last 5 frames but other than that it's all good.

How many secs do you get on a take?

First was normal h264, second was 640x480 with raw resolution set to 1280x400.

Awesome. The raw blew the H264 away in my opinion. Also the aspect ratio was fine with me. Then again I'm an anamorphic fan.

Framing wise, does the liveview show 640x480?

I only get the pink frames once or twice in the first second or two of footage, then the rest is just fine.

This is with the Sandisk 95, if that makes a shit.


Did this video with the newest 600D build, 1280x720 at 24fps for the h264, and 640x480 at 24 fps with raw resolution set at 1280x400.

Better to use raw in 720p or 480? Seems like the images are cropped differently in each setting, but scaling the 400 up to 720 barely has any effect on quality.

The second shot to my eye had more detail and looked great. Was that the 480 setting?

If we can get a 550D build I'll engage in testing as well.

How's this looking for the 550D, guys?

Wondering the same thing. I suppose the 600D development is an indication of what we'll see on the 550D

ive tried many configurations to be able to get usable footage with my 600d, the only problem is that damn magenta!

It's a RAW file...turn the magenta/green slider to 0.

The best you can with 600D (550D/60D) is: (limited by hardware SD transfer rates)
- 960х540, upscale it to 1280х720 (24 fps max)
- 1280х400, tight aspect 3.20:1 (24 fps max)
In Canon's 720p - lineskipping 1.66х, so you should upscale to restore correct ratio:
- 1280x400 upscales to 1280x664 - near to 16:9 (24 fps max)
- 1280x360 upscale to 1280x600 - 2.13:1 aspect
- 1280x320 upscale to 1280x533 - 2.40:1 cinemascope aspect

It is only 1280px wide, but pretty nice looking though :)

Really can't complain with that. With it being RAW detail should be amazing. Better than the h.264 codec. Not to mention cinemascope is where it's at :D

I haven't been able to test it out. How is framing done? Does it change in liveview mode so you can frame properly or does it require cropbar overlays?

Not sure about the tech stuff, but If you guys can get a useable raw on the 550D/600D I'm going to assume you guys are aliens.

It seems the limitations will be SD card write speeds. SanDisk 64GB SDXC Memory Card Extreme Pro Class 10 UHS-I claims 95MB/s read speeds, but I'm not sure if that is so. I remember reading somewhere that you only get 30-40MB/s with SD cards. It may be Canon cheating somewhere.
