5D3 raw used for almost all Glidecam/tracking shots, all slow-mo, and one 3 minute scene (it was originally two full scenes, but one of those was cut for pacing).

Available now on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Sony PlayStation, Xbox, Windows Store, VUDU, etc...thank you team Magic Lantern!
Is anyone getting continuous 3K raw in 4:3 aspect ratio (for 2x anamorphic shooting)? If somebody can confirm I'll pull the trigger on a used 5D3 body!
Hey everyone, here's the follow up trailer to my film Sleepwalkers, which I linked to a while back:

We used many, many cams on this production. A lot of Red Scarlet, Blackmagic 2.5K/Pocket, and 5D Mark III with Magic Lantern. There are actually more 5D3 shots in the trailer than any other cam.

During 2nd unit, I tested the BMPC, but it was unacceptable to use at the time. I love the 2.5K and Pocket, so I'm interested to give it another try now that the FPN has been addressed to some extent.

Scarlet was the clear winner, but the footage still cut seamlessly. Thanks to Blackmagic & the ML raw hack, it's very hard to stomach the additional money that goes into a Red package (I sold my Scarlet shortly before NAB).
General Chat / 19Lights / GingerHDR gone forever?

I reinstalled Windows/OSX on my dual boot system today & noticed that GingerHDR wouldn't connect to the server for authentication.  I went to their website to see if there was a post about an issue, and the whole thing was down.  I went to John (the creator)'s Twitter account to see if he made a post, and his Twitter has been deleted.  I tried to email him and received a bad email address notification from Gmail.

Anyone know what's up with that?  I'm in a bit of a bind as I'm cutting a feature with tons of ML-Raw files scattered throughout & it's causing major headaches.

I shot on the Mark II for two years straight.  I picked up a Mark III not too long ago, and there's no comparison whatsoever (in the video department...I'm not referring to stills).

The only way you'd even want to consider a 5D2, is if the price of a 5D3 is out of your range.

This is great alex!  I'm happy to help test with my 5d3, but I'm a mac guy and having some difficulties post processing the files.  Read the pdf, downloaded the zips from page one, but then what?  Sorry for the stupid ?'s...
I searched for a tutorial on using the cr2hdr.exe and the draw.exe but no luck.  Thanks anyone for some direction!

2nd that...also on Mac.  Got some shots, just can't figure out how to make them look normal in AE.
Interesting test that I put together.

I was swapping cameras & lenses back and forth, so conditions were extremely similar for both.  See my notes on pros/cons.

For more accurate results, hit the 'Download' tab and download 'Original .MOV file'
Thanks Abstrak.  17x4 was strictly for the 60p shots....gave me longer takes.

I did no de-noising in post...sharpness/noise looked great as-is.

Here's a 1080p screengrab (frame @ 58 seconds in video).  I think that one take may have been ISO 800 since I used a lower aperture there...can't remember:
1920x818 @ 1000 ISO (24fps), 1728 x 458 @ 1600 ISO (60fps)

Cut .RAW files using GingerHDR in Premiere and graded in AE.

Thank you ML team!

When this problem happens I have to import these dng files in Lightroom and go to the file where the "flicker" happens, adjust exposure +/-, and either sync the remaining files or until the exposure comes back to where it was.  Often times it's a full stop flicker.

Shield, do you see a change in the metadata when inspecting the 'shifted' stills, or are they the same as the others?
Is that what I'm seeing here?

See around 4 sec. mark when the black beam comes into frame:

Edit: fixed by going to camera calibration in ACR and changing "process" to 2010
