General Chat / Rokinon 35mm 1.4 or Canon 35mm f2 IS
« on: December 23, 2014, 06:38:51 PM »
I am tossed up between these two lenses. Any input is much appreciated.

On the one hand I love the optics and the 1.4 aperture that the Rokinon provides; but some people are saying it is much sharper towards f2 anyways. On the 35mm f2 you have less DOF but you have the IS and probably a better coating on the lens for less glares which is an obvious problem with the Rokinon.

I can get these lenses for around the same price (used) give or take $50 so I am trying to decide.

I will be attempting to use this lens on my steadicam merlin 2 among other rigs.

I would opt for the Rokinon 24mm but I already own the 14mm 2.8

Thanks guys.

General Help Q&A / Strange Activity

For some reason 2 RAW video files on my 32 GB CF card seem to be corrupt. It would not let me transfer these 2 files; one file which was in the middle of the recorded data and one which was the last clip recorded. The other RAW files on the card transferred fine but for some reason I get an error when transferring these 2 clips. Another larger 64gb card I filled had no such issues.

The Finder can’t complete the operation because some data in “M09-0842.RAW” can’t be read or written.
(Error code -36)

The sizes of the non transferable files are normal.

I tried transferring on Windows as well as OSX but, no luck.

a) I am wondering why this may have happened
b) how can I avoid this? Always format the card on a computer?
c) How can I make these dang files transfer? Recovery software?

Much thanks for any input

General Help Q&A / Benchmark freeze
« on: January 25, 2014, 06:52:29 PM »
Hi there,

on my 5dmk2 I can't seem to get through a benchmark without the camera freezing on the screen and me having to pop out the battery. Any clue as to why this may be?

I'm testing a 32gb transcend 1000x and the results that I CAN get are disappointingly slow. Only getting around 46-55mb/s write speed if I'm reading this correctly. Supposed to be "Up to 160mb/s" write for this card.. Not sure if it's a bad card or what do you guys think?

any hints or tips appreciated.

Also am I running an older version of the raw record module because I see some people's screenshots with more advanced options. All I see for options is "Start" "Width" and "Height" in which custom resolutions don't seem to be available (ie. presets skips from 1320 to 1920)
