Hi everyone.

I haven't played around with the time laps functions of ML yet but I thought tomorrow nights (27/28 of September 2015, http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/total-lunar-eclipse.html) would be a good push to get started. I will read up a lot, but since its short on time I also thought I would ask if you have any specific recommendations for a lunar eclipse.

I am looking for recommendations for settings, but also step by step guides to use to get started. Maybe a dedicated website you know about?

I also wonder what your experiences is with battery life and so on. The moon will rise 19:10 local time, the eclipse will start 02:11, become total at 04:11, reach its maximum at 04:47, end total at 05:23 and end at 06:27. How would you manage this battery wise? I have a battery grip and can of course change batteries during if that works and is necessary. I have plenty of batteries to change with. How would you manage this setting wise? How long interval and so forth.

Any thoughts on how to successfully capture the whole event, or at least from 02:11 to 06:27 would be appreciated.

Raw Video Postprocessing / Which converter to use with Windows 10?
« on: August 06, 2015, 11:16:44 AM »
Hi.
I just started playing with my 50d. Recorded in raw rec, not mlv, and now want to convert to prores/windows equally format. So far I have not seen any info about the current converters supporting Windows 10 so was curious to hear if any of them do. Right now sitting on a weak laptop (M-5Y10) but will get back to my workhorse later.

Thankful for any info and advise.

Hardware and Accessories / Mod Idea. Speedboster for crop DSLR
« on: November 29, 2014, 05:00:09 PM »
Hi.

I have been thinking about the possibility to add a speedbooster to my 50d. It goes something like this. Take out the optical glass of a speedbooster, see video below, fix a permanent mirror lock so the mirror stay out of the way, place the optics from the speedbooster in the camera (between the lens and the sensor with the same distance as it would have had with a speedbooster on a mirrorless camera).

Since I do not have a speedbooster at hand I do not know if the optical glass would fit in the square hole in the camera without modification, but I put together this overlay picture that suggest it would (sorry it looks like crap, could not find perfect pictures to work with).

I know they are not perfectly overlayed, but decided to put the circle in the middle instead of align the picture since they are taken from different angles.




What do you think? Would this be possible? Maybe a way to make crop mode more useful, or just get the FF field of view.
Curious to hear your thoughts.

Cheers, Tullen
