Have you looked at EWA-Marine.com bags?

@Fergus Hey, would you mind sharing this custom profile?

This is the one I used. Be sure to follow all the instructions. The effects are particularly noticeable if you have straight horizontal lines close to the top or bottom of the frame:

I have the Samyang and it's good for the money. The only downside for me is the distortion. It has quite complex 'moustache' distortion of straight lines, so if you shoot a lot in cities or other places with lots of straight lines you might find it annoying. A possible life-saver is that if you shoot in raw and process with Lightroom or ACR, there is a custom made lens profile you can download which pretty much sorts out the distortion.

Hi,

I've been using that card on my Mark III. I bought it as I thought it might be a more reliable alternative to the komputerbay 1000x 64gb cards I already have. Dissappointingly I've found I only get around 73mb/s out of it. Usually around 300-400 frames at 1920x1080 25fps (global draw off). Both my Komputerbay cards give me 900 or more frames at 25fps and run around 83-85mb/s once warmed up (also with global draw off)
Having said that I did once have one of my komputerbay cards corrupt a bunch of stills (although i guess that could have been a cf reader issue).

yes, just make sure you let enough time for couple lines of "garbage" to appear, it writes a file at that timeyes looks right, you copy ML  folder and autoexec, then you use EOScard, just don't forget to check EOS_DEVELOP and BOOTDISC check boxes

Thanks so much for the tip, Paramon. I still can't get it working, but at least I know problem is with the second stage, not the first. I've been checking both those boxes in EOScard (or sometimes just BOOTDISC, which some people seem to suggest). After the bootflag process I get a ROM.dat file on the card of 16mb I guess this is right.

Any more things to try greatly appreciated.

Thanks again.

I also posted this in another section, then realised this might be a better place- Any help greatly appreciated!

Hi Folks,

First of all- massive thanks to the developers- I'm so excited about this and can't wait to get it running.
Apologies for what may be a stupid newb question, but I'm having trouble getting the RAW capable ML on my 5D Mark III. In the past I've had previous alpha version on it no probs.
This time I've been following all posted instructions to the letter (I think!). Canon firmware 1.1.3, camera on M, etc. When I load the bootflag.fir I get an  error message - could not find ML files, followed by a series of other messages, then some garbage half way up the screen, which stays there. Is this normal behaviour?
Moving onto the next steps, I have deleted the bootflag file and added the ML folder and autoexec file. Plus made the card bootage with EOScard, following the instructions for that. When I load it up, nothing happens when I press the trash button.
I have tried several different SD cards and have cleared all camera settings and have even tried reinstalling the Canon firmware.
HELP- it would be fantastic if someone had any idea where I am going wrong, or anything else to try as it's driving me nuts!
Cheers
