Explain the details and the settings of the issues with your exposure. If you read through the thread you will see that the shutter speed isn't really accurate to reflect normal shooting so you have to fiddle with it..

Yep max your cameras shutter up.. to like 1/8000.. it really will be about 1/10 you will need to be at like 100iso f22 f32 even with a 4x nd filter. Really a ND filter is a must during the day with this..

I have been testing this out after the past couple of weeks. One thing I noticed is like said at the beginning you can get about 1/10 however in translation 1/10 is 1/8000 on the actual camera.   With that during the day I have to be at f22-32 and 100iso with a 4x ND filter to get day usage...  It is very usable in the field it seems. I really have been enjoying it. I did notice after a while I went back to normal camera mode and I pushed the shutter and herd clunk. then let go and herd clunk.. I reset my custom functions and it worked again..  Thanks every one for your hard work and it is amassing here. Is my first real time-lapse video I ever made. All with silent..  Please watch in 1080p. :)

Well i have over the past few weeks shot about 8 time lapse clips with it. I am still working on them However this one is by far my favorite.. I will post my final composition with once done. Awesome work Alex.

Can any one build the new pull for the 60D my development environment is broke and Alex wants new tests done..  I am going to the mountains tomorrow night for time lapse.

I would rather no shutter stress.. Also noticed something about every 200+ photos the shutter does flip once, or that could be the mirror.

Has any one tried bulb ramping or like hdr photos.? LOL

Well tested a 4 hour time lapse.. I had 2 batteries.  Battery 56% Battery 2 62% and 970 frames before my 32 gig sd card filled.  Not bad..

No the copy of the exif data did not do anything. O well I have define and other tools.

Alex sent the link and password via PM. Its a home server and don't want a ton of people hitting it..

I am going to test battery time time-lapse today..  I want to see how long and how many frames I can get on a 32 gig card for practuse for saturday night.. I will update on test results for long time lapse..

Yah but what was odd was at 1/10 it was blown out but when I went 1/200 it was fine. I switched to non silent picture and the picture was not blown out at the same settings. I will mess around with it some more. Maybe Live view is not handling the ND filter?

Verry nice work Alex. I was testing the viability of this for my astro photography trip.. It seems I am getting a tad more noise however this could be because Lightroom recognizes the cr2 file and apply noise profile vs the dng?  Anways here are to crops zoomed in showing the difference.

Canon 60D 14 second exposure f2.8 6400iso

Normal Capture Non silent:

Silent picture:

You can see some more color noise in the silent picture however still very usable don't you think?  Note this is cropped.. No black frames or stacking.   

What is the max frame time lapse did any one get?

I did notice one thing interesting. With a 4x ND filter event at 100 iso i got over exposed at 1/15 to be safe. however with the ND filter for some reason I was able to up the shutter speed to around 1/200 without it crashing This caused the exposure to be more in line..  That was very odd because before it would crash if I went that high.. Although the people were blurring so it seems like it was not at true 1/200.. Just wondering if any one noticed this..

You sir are awesome.. I have to now figure out how to keep live view from turning off on my 60D during time-lapse.. :)

Ahh it was the camera that was turning off.  I doubt you can just turn off the lcd during the captures can you? even though I have it dimmed it still is on.. This weekend I am going to be on top of a mountain doing time lapse and every little battery % saved the better... It will be a 1 time deal. :)

Yah its not fun I have been banging my head against the wall for 2 days. Would love a build for my 60D but I want to learn. Still if any one feels like building one for the 60D while I bash my head against the wall I am all for it..

I am getting hung up with.. The following I have searched high and low and tried a ton of different things. This is actually quite a bit of progress from what I had. Note I do do a make clean prior. Also this is on a mac.

Code: [Select]
brians-mac-mini:fullres-silent-pics brianhursey$ make 60D
make -C  /Users/brianhursey/Code/fullres-silent-pics/platform/60D.111
[ VERSION  ]   ../../platform/60D.111/version.bin
[ CPP      ]
/bin/sh: -v: command not found
make[1]: *** [] Error 127
make: *** [60D] Error 2

brians-mac-mini:fullres-silent-pics brianhursey$ cat Makefile.user
CONFIG_TCC          = y

brians-mac-mini:~ brianhursey$ cat .bash_profile
# Set architecture flags
export ARCHFLAGS="-arch x86_64"
# Ensure user-installed binaries take precedence
export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH
# Load .bashrc if it exists
test -f ~/.bashrc && source ~/.bashrc

if [ -f $(brew --prefix)/etc/bash_completion ]; then
    . $(brew --prefix)/etc/bash_completion
export PATH="$PATH:$(brew --prefix coreutils)/libexec/gnubin"

Also /bin/sh does esxist..

brians-mac-mini:fullres-silent-pics brianhursey$  /bin/sh -v

I have been out out coding for about 8 years LOL but I am going to see if I can get this built for my 60D I will let you all know what works and what does not.. My build environment is being finicky..   If I can get it working. I am on Saturday going to be in the mountains shooting start time lapses this might be handy.. :) With a 50mm f1.8 at 6400iso to expose the milky way I need a 14 second exposure..  So considering the limit is 15 seconds. This may work..

How to open and convert Silent Pics DNG's??? I can't open it nor with lightroom now with ACR plugin!
It give me: "Could not complete your request because it is not the right kind of document".

Please check the file, can you open it?

I was able to open them in after effects as a serries..  Did you try the DNG converter possibly. To re process, They also opened in Photoshop. I don't believe they will work in Lightroom.

This past weekend we went out for a photo walk in Athens GA in addition to my film camera I used for stills I brought along my 60D loaded down with ML raw video.. It is still a work in progress and about 1/3 done.  However it was shot at 1280x544 at 23.976fps..  I think this works well.  Of course watch in hd.

notice, that its 1600x680, not x900... 2:3,5 aspect ratio
I like it and it helps with getting more frames...
at 1600x900 I get 148 frames on 60d Sandisk Extreme 45/mbs hci iu 10 . This is the second full build that would be attached. Marekk if you could upload another updated full build that would be good. You get extra buffers if you set the stills to s3 jpeg in the still menu. It does not effect the video just free's up more buffer space.  A cool idea would be to some how set s3 when recording starts and put it back to the previous value after so when switching to stills we don't mess up and shoot a shoot at s3. :D That would be bad.

I believe it is 27m+31m+31m+31m+31m+31m+31m+31m+31m+21  although it goes away so fast I cant tell if its 7 31m or 6 or 8. LOL

I guess it's safe to say that 32GB SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-1 card is the best for 60D RAW so far?
I'm getting ~750 frames at 1280x544 24p

I was able to get 710 frames with  1280x544 @24 with a SanDisk extreme 16 gig UHS-1 class 10 45MB/s Really in the end we are all limited to the ~20 MB/s sd interface.

Nice timelapse ! I tried one today on my 550D with same settings (Silent DNG / 1pic every 3sec) and did 600 pics.
But I had to throw away about 5% (32pics) cause of magenta distortion in irregular sequwnce.

My timelapse:
Distortion comparison:

Could you please tell more about the settings used in ML ?
Did you get distorted images during your timelase ?

Here was what was interesting when I went back..  I accidentally started the first series in movie mode and not with it in M mode.  So all the ones shot while the 60D was set on movie turned out fine. At the end I did another time-lapse in photo M mode and it had allot of magenta frames.  So I will try and duplicate again some time soon when I get a chance... I only used the first clip.  So try starting silent shutter while set on movie.. And then try and do it while set on M and see if you get different results.

Seems to be working well I did a silent picture time laps pre memorial day parade while we waited. My wife wanted me to shoot standard pictures during the parade so I could not do a time laps during.. It was about a 40 min period before it started a frame ever 3 seconds.  Make sure to go to the you tube page and play in original.

The Silent Pictures and raw videos are nothing else than the LiveView image before the Picture Styles are applied. So you can't get higher resolutions than what Canon gives us. For the 18 Megapixel APS-C cameras that means the max. resolution is 1734 X 1156. Only in 5X magnification mode you get a higher resolutions. You could make a high-res matrix be moving the focus box of course.

The 15 Megapixel 50D has an even lower LiveView resolution than the 60D/600D/550D.

Ahh yes 1734 X 1156 was the resolution I was looking for. I did notice it does have more than a normal 100iso raw when processing. However a little ACR noise reduction it looks great.   Really with SD cards raw video is viable only in short clips because even with a camera that can handle it without filling the buffer. You can fill the card very very quickly.

But the only thing missing for timelapse and stop motion animation is a bigger resolution.
Why is 1728x972px the maximum? 2560 would already be nice to be able to do some panning in post!

Or buy a Canon 50D :-)

Silent picture shoots DNG at a higher resolution. Its I believe 2K..  Use that instead of raw video for timelapse if you don't want to eat the shutter with standard pictures.  I am currently uploading one to you tube now. It will take another few hours tell its up. I had to down scale it to 1080.

so while mirror is up in live view possibly thats where the leak is and not when a standard picture is taken?

Umm that looks like physical light leak?  normal stills work ok?

New test with nightly build 28-5-2013.
960 x 540 px @ 25 fps, 16:9, max. 3479 frames before buffer full.
Only magenta tint removed.

FYI only uploaded as 480p on your link

Well from my understanding raw video is like raw stills. That is the raw sensor data fed to a file. For BW it would have to be processed and would no longer be raw data.  This is what happens already with stills or video with profiles. For stills for instance the way it works. Is you take a picture it creates a raw image with sensor data.  It applies the profile or settings you have as a jpeg then throws out the raw data.  Video I believe would be the same so the output file would be a *.mov file.  Atl east that is the way I understands it would work with raw video if it is anything like stills.
