Raw Video / Huge Problem with 50D aperture
May 27, 2015, 10:06:07 PM
Hey Guys,

Today i made some raw videos with my 50D. The Problem is:

It always films with open aperture ! No matter what aperture I choose (16 f.e) the depth of field is always the same :( . The aperture ring simply doesnt close. The only thing that happens is the image getting darker. Usually if you hit the shot button to shoot a photo the aperture ring closes. Shouldn't this also be the case in Live View or at least when I hit the record button ?

I hope you guys can give me answers here. I really feel like selling my 50D now.

Thanks in advance !
Raw Video / 50D Crop Mode ONLY Grayscale ?

Hey guys,

Im really sorry if this information can be found somewhere, but I already searched for about 2 hours now.

The Problem :

When I hit the record button in Crop mode  on my 50D, the screen immediatly turns grey while recording.
I guess this is the "grayscale" preview setting.
But even after choosing the "Canon" setting in the preview menu(menu --> raw video -->  preview --> Canon) Nothing changed.

I also own a 700D. When i choose "canon" as preview mode, I simply can record with the regular 5x Zoom liveview picture and not a gray one.


Raw Video / Raw Canon Camera Settings 720/1080 Question
November 23, 2014, 01:55:39 PM
Hey guys,

i allways had the the original canon settings set to 1920/1080p 30fps when shooting raw.

My Problem was:

I can only choose 1280x720 to record coninously as a result of the neede writing speed. (using a 700d)
In liveview and on my computer , I allways get a cropped picture. I can never use the full range of my lenses. ( black space on the top, buttom and sides)

But now i figured out, that when i choose 720p in canon menu i can choose higher resolutions (1728x516 continuously) and finally get a non cut video out of it  !

This seems to be the case , as the writing speed needed is much lower when set to 720p in canon menu in comparison to 1080p.

So my question is.

How can the canon settings for resolution have an influence on the raw recording as the resolution is set right in the ML menu. And do i loose quality if the canon menu is set to 720p in comparison to my "cropped" video if set to 1080?

Thanks  :)

Raw Video / Crop factor at 1280/720 RAW

Hey guys,

im just wondering if anyone knows how much the picture gets "smaller/cropped" when recorded in 720p 16/9 RAW compared to the normal focal lenght. I really need a ultra wide angel and it seems like its impossible for me to get a wide angel in combination with raw video.

thanks ! :)
