Hi guys. I've been told that MOV video mode applies some noise reduction in camera. This could help explain why video seems to turn to mush at higher Isos on my 550D and 50D in this mode. Shooting Raw is nice, as it eliminates this problem and remains sharp, allowing me to clean up the video in post. I was curious however, to see if it was possible to disable this h.264 noise reduction? Thanks all.
Feature Requests / H.264 Playback on 50D
August 17, 2014, 10:06:36 PM
I know that the 50D was never intended for video capture in the first place, but is it possible to get H.264 playback working? I find myself turning off Raw in favour of 3X bitrate H.264 at times but being able to play back right away would be awesome!
General Help Q&A / True Resolution of H.264 Video
August 17, 2014, 10:04:00 PM
As someone who owns a 550D as well as a 50D, I've played around with your amazing Raw video features quite a bit. My 50D can create some remarkably sharp footage with the Raw hack. For some projects however, I find the H.264 codec to be satisfactory. So my question is, with the Liveview resolution being only 1584x1058, does that mean my true resolution in H.264 video is not 1920x1080 but actually 1584x891 upscaled? Or is it true 1080P? Just wondering if I'm getting more resolution in video with the 550D, as it's liveview resolution is higher, or are they both the same?
Tragic Lantern / Exposure Issues with 50D Raw
January 25, 2014, 11:16:52 PM
Just put Magic Lantern's latest nightly build on my 50D. Exposing is not making any sense to me. Opening the aperture or increasing ISO is changing my shutter speed to let in more light, but after changing the shutter back to where I want it, I have to exact same exposure... It doesn't make any sense. How can I get shutter speed, aperture, and ISO to work properly?
I have read in the forums that it's a separate chip that does the H.264 compression for video. Given that, is it possible to reprogram that chip to have a proper in-camera 10 Bit ProRes 422 compression? What would be the problems or obstacles with this idea?
