Well that particular card is USB 1.1, so speed would be ultra slow. But I could see it being physically possible, just get another door and chop it up so it engages the right things while also being open.

Look up the filmcity cage. About $75 I think. No experience, I've just seen it.

That's the trouble, all the EEs probably already make enough to afford 5D3s hahahaha

Would it help to pull apart the camera and take detailed photos of the chips? And write down the numbers?

Im super interested. I also realized that my thread kinda stepped on yours. Sorry! I didn't see yours.

I just bought a set of extension tubes. I went on amazon to get a nikon adapter and an extension tube set sent the price just into free shipping range (as the shipping was going to be as much as the difference anyhow). Should be interesting to see what it does with my 300mm old ghetto lens.

I suppose i don't want the 550d for its size, just for it's price point. So developing a board that could be built for about $50 and enable us to shoot video that would rival cameras much much more expensive sounds pretty attractive. And if you want performance plus size, then 5D3?

I suppose i feel like, if you need fast storage, go for the fastest. I mean the thing is, technically anything is possible. It just depends on how far down the signal chain the sd card module is.

What do you think guys? I've found that you can buy a replacement sd card "reader" board at least for my 550D. Could we find what sort of signals the main board sends to this and then build our own board that has say, an esata plug so we can plug in little ssds rather than the Sd cards? That would theoretically turn the sd cameras into killer video machines. To bad im neither a programmer or electrical engineer :(

Is it true raw or some mimicking of it

Yep, true raw!

The limitation is card speed. Run a card benchmark and you'll see.

Just do a card benchmark test, that will tell you a lot.

Here's my little test video. Although I think I over did it with the bass in the music... a lot...  ::)

Is this using the Photo mode ie: no line skipping or 1920x1080 video mode with line skipping?

http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5441.0

I've only tried it out so far with the later, should I be using Photo mode 1:1 crop, is it even available for 550D? Haven't had chance to try yet.  I'm using MK11147's builds. Cheers.

**EDIT**

Nevermind, sorted, been so long since I used any mode other than video I'd forgotten how to use Livemode in 'M' or any other photo shooting mode. Photo modes give waaaaaay better output than video modes. 1:1 crop vs line skipped.

I was simply in video mode. I'll post up my results once I finish editing them. I'm not in love with the things I shot (stupid amounts of focus racking...) but the quality is great for "standard def"!

It seems like there's a spike in nessecary transfer rate right at the start which kills it for some of the higher resolutions. I wonder if there's a way to solve this?

This raw is kicking H.264's ass so hard it's almost funny. I just put together a little clip at 960x408 and I'd almost venture to say it appears sharper than the 1080 H.264.... I'll upload tomorrow, it looks very cool (with very little effort).

Guys! I'm so excited that it works on my 550D! Even at this low resolution, it's still a very cool filmic look! I had an idea though, what about B&W? Could we achieve higher resolutions in B&W? The files would be a third of the size (or so I'd imagine with only 1 channel)

Oh! I thought they had gotten it working a bit. I guess that must have been the 600D. Well i can't imagine it'll be too long before this is fully up and running on the 550D, as the 600D is already up (and it is, essentially, the same camera).

Do you search for a source code or for a ready-to-use ML to Mount on your camera ? And what function are you searching for ? If you can precisely answer to these question, I can help you !  ;)

Probably a compiled version would be best, but regardless I haven't found either haha. I have done a tiny bit of C programming though. And I'm looking for the raw video feature.

Hi guys! I just joined, been using ML since I bought my used 550D. Now i'd like to give this raw thing a try, but I'm a bit confused. How the hell are you getting it to run on your 550Ds? I can't find source code let alone a build with raw (i've got the silent photos though). Although I found the nightly build. And that dang sokoban game sucked up a good couple hours haha (I'm stuck at level 5). Anyone care to help out a noob? :P
