Feature Requests / Potential for All-I on 60D
« on: July 06, 2013, 12:59:55 AM »
Hope this is the right place...and if it is impossible, I understand...I see lots of exciting discussion of All-I on the 650D or 700D...and of course they have much faster SD cards than the 60D does (but the 60D does have good sized buffers at least)... I am using higher bit rates now on ML with my 60D and testing with raw, but higher bit rates in H264 have some advantages for me in some situations...much as I like raw... but I would love to get more than I am now, especially All-I if I could. I understand Tragic Lantern offers 650 and 700 users All-I, and wonder if that could be done on the 60D in ML...

In raw I can get a little better than 20MB/s, and that is around 160Mb/s - a lot more than I can see from X1.4 or even X2.0...it is really close to what I understand other testers of All-I on the 650D are seeing...so I wondered if such a feature might make it to the 60D...I don't expect to get audio with this (or course), but if we could get close to GOP=1 it would be pretty neat...

Of course I guess just buying a 650D, 700D or even the new 70D is another option, but getting more out of what I have would be pretty nice too...if it is possible.

Like I said - if it is not reasonable or worth it, I understand. Just hoping :-)

Raw Video / HDMI output interaction with raw recording
« on: June 25, 2013, 06:33:50 AM »
Just a note to document what I found today. I have a 60D and was having a lot of issues with corrupt frames (about 10% per shot) in raw recording. Took me a bit but I finally thought to try recording without my EVF. I use it as a matter of course and had not even thought about it at first. Of course that worked and I did test with and without it to check. Clearly there appears to be an issue sending data to the card and the HDMI port at the same time. I am not sure how many people might need to know, but in case it helps I wanted to post this note.

Perhaps in the future it will be possible to use the HDMI port for external monitors and do raw, but for now, that does not appear to work.

Let me know if anyone needs further details or tests.
