@a1ex

Thank you, a1ex!

Yes, I have found raw spreadsheet from a forum post here, I know that raw video is great, but I don't need it right now, because it requires post processing etc.

Anyway, now your answer has brought me to a new question:
So, what does crop_rec module do in reality in ML then? Sorry, I am now more confused about it than before, thought I understand it's function. If I have to guess, it only lowers the resolution (scanned lines from sensor, or pixel readouts), so that camera's CPU can keep up (e.g. for RAW, data flow, as I read some of your other posts). In that case, I get it now. But, maybe I'm wrong.

Yes, thank you, I have already seen these matrix tables and have them bookmarked. But, they did not answer my question, so I had to ask it here (there is a mention of CROP_MODE_HACK for 650D/700D/EOS M, but they are only un-hiding the feature by Canon). Thanks!

...

Btw, I have read some of your posts, just can say that Canon should've hire you looong time ago (but then we probably wouldn't have ML in this form with all the features :D)



@ domo94

Thank you, domo94. Yes, 550D is practically identical to 600D for most ordinary and even moderate/advanced users, and especially beginners. I actually know a lot about both cameras, specs, etc. That is not an issue. But, the video crop feature is really important to me and kind of a deal breaker.



600d it is, oh, well... :( :)

Hi everyone, I am sorry for being little intrusive, but I have posted a question at the Canon T2i/550D forum here, but no one is answering.

As this question is most likely related to crop module (and this version is built on top of it with RAW support), can someone from here answer me the simple question: can we use this module on EOS 550D and achieve ~ same 3x crop mode as it is possible with stock firmware on EOS 600D ? Is the compiled module version 'stable' enough on 550D model?

Many thanks!
Regards

Hi everyone!

My first post here :)
I am really impressed by ML for some time now.

I wish to jump into DSLR world, and I'm kind of split between 550D and 600D. The main reason is video mode, and the fact that 550D has ~7x crop mode in 640x480, and 600D more useful (at least in my case) ~3x 1920x1080 FHD mode. Now, I have searched a lot of topics and read some, but they mostly discuss more expensive models like 5D MKIII, 7D etc. The price difference is not that big, but then again, I can get another lens with 550D... and don't really need articulated lcd screen.

So, does ML (with official or nightly build and/or experimental modules) can provide different crop video modes, just like in 600D and higher recording resolutions, just like in 600D - or not?

I have looked at the download pages here:

http://builds.magiclantern.fm/550D-109.html
http://builds.magiclantern.fm/600D-102.html

but the changelogs show only latest commits, not complete list of features. Is there somewhere a page with all the changes/features listed for each model/firmware revision (search failed me again).

Thanks!
