General Chat / Re: EOS M: Hot-swappable DIY battery grip.
« on: May 08, 2021, 12:07:59 PM »
Wow that grip looks so nice!
Would love to have one that doesn't require drilling a hole!
Ideally I would like the following adjustments:
1. it can use a dc in to a dummy battery
2. led light indicators instead of an oled panel
3. a usb-c charging port
4. Combo Arca swiss & manfrotto Quick Release Plate
5. 1/4" Tripod Screw Mount

sosad I do not have the skills and a 3d printer for this dream battery grip.

Dfort posted some tests with cropped lenses here

There are some tests here too:

I'm curious about how would you use super8 lenses on EOSM. Can you focus to infinity with them?

Do they need a proper adapter? I mean, they are D-mount, not C-mount, right?

Thanks for sharing these posts!
Very few super 8 lenses. comes with interchangable c mounts and 1/2" lenses also wrok in this 6.19x crop (super8 ratio)mode
D mount lens cannot be adapted with infinity focus

Buy high apperture manual prime lenses. Helios 44-2 is cheap and good.
The helios + the crop will become a 350mm lens, which is impossible to shoot handheld, not to mentikn the extra glass makes the setup bulky and ineffective.

Nice! I liked you use 15fps.

Agreed. How are you converting the MLV? I think you might get a better result using MLVApp, configured to output LogC. Then convert with FilmConvert with the profile called "Arri / Alexa / LogCfilm" (note: not the normal LogC. This one uses a "film matrix" to convert the colors). The company Cinegrain also offers some very neat conversions and textures.
Check these curves:

I use MLVapp too ! Such an amazing software to deal with raw footage.
I out put it as logC then use filmconvert to simulate film colors
Thanks for sharing the curves and the method!

Very very good film look simulation! Congrats. Only aspect that I would consider susceptible of improvement is the white balance which is maybe too white at times... a little bit of magenta or yellow cast could be used in some shots

Thanks for the compliment! I never noticed it until you have said it! Will surely try to tweak it a slight bit!

Try this version:

Hello Danne, I am happy to report that it saves upon start up!
However, the liveview in this version is really really bad... its unusable...
Am i doing something wrong?

P.S. I get choppy liveview while shooting RAW and movie crop, In other version liveview works great....

Hello there,
I have been using the Eos M magic lamtern movie crop mode with raw,
However, the movie crop mode has to be enabled everytime upon startup(powrr on)
I have tried saving the settings but it just would not save the movie crop setting.
Its pretty annoying and I wonder if it could be made.

a zoom lens that doesn't have alot of reach for video only.

Can someone using please tell me the crop in video and recommend some lens for me?
are super 8/ super 16 lens good for the crop of ML new update?
I am currently considering one of these lenses but I am not sure if it can be mounted/ the image circle can be used without a significant crop in post.
