Forget that expensive and horrendous VAF filter and buy an ultra wide angle lens instead (tokina 11-16mm f2.8 ). Crop mode is the way to go, but if you want to use the whole sensor I recommend fast lenses, like the antialiasing and beautiful pentax 50mm f1.2.

I'm trying to use ML Raw for some professional work. Shooting raw, VAF filter (expensive, far from horrendous), global draw off. Hdmi monitoring is not a problem, use zebras and waveforms and everything else from the monitor. A bit of a pain on post production but fine.
My question is, how to do that with crop mode? Is it possible to frame and monitor video?

Should definitely work with ML Raw as if it was film.
Another option besides the Atomos is to go with good old Mini DV video assist decks, it's possible to find them cheap, if you already doesn't have one :)
Need to have the video assist operator though.

I haven't tried it continuously this long. But theoretically, provided the stock h.264 capture is around 48Mb/s and there is a limit of maximum minutes that 7D can record (say 5 or 10 minutes? I have to consult the manual), I reckon that the recording might very likely cut itself out way before it reaches the 4GB limit. So technically speaking, 7D is more like a still camera with limited capacity for video capture rather than a video camera.

It's possible to record continuously till the card is full. Files are spanned and then reconnected in RAWMagic. The only thing that happens is losing the last 50 or 60 frames when it reaches the end of the card (for me is a bunch of black frames in the end). I'm using Transcend 64 1000x with the latest almost stable build. I'm still getting some pink frames (always the first frame) in some of the shots.

This VAF is truly amazing.. Couldn't resist and got one for me.  :)
I'll put some footage here next week.

Are these cards going to make any difference for the 7D?

Has anyone tried the Transcend 64gb 1000x? Thinking about buying a couple of those instead of risking the Komputerbay lottery.. :)

Blackmagic just released the beta version of Resolve 10 for download on their website. I've read that there are some new features that can help defringe raw footage, like input PTZR, among others. I'll give it a try as soon as I can!

Could you clarify what you mean with the Buffer setting? Everything else I follow, but I'm not sure exactly which setting that is. Is that the setting within Video Hacks?

It's inside the RAW option (1# latest build), right above "take" and "text". For me it came buffer 4 by default.

Have you guys tested some of the wide zooms with the crop mode to see which performs best?
I know that Sigma 10-20 has very low distortion, but not as sharp as the Tokina 11-16, for example.

Shot a lot of footage today using britom's latest build and the 5.6" TV Logic attached. No problems at all with the external monitoring, just perfect.  ;)

I actually documented it out here:

Thanks guys, problem solved! @stevelucky, my files are all going to the User folder as well.

Hey guys,

I have the mlv2dng and the .mlv files on my mac. How do I convert this files? No drag and drop, have no idea what to do..
I checked everywhere but couldn't find any detailed instructions. I'd appreciate some help!

While the external monitor will work I found it to be incredibly unstable, the ML interface would not display correctly and I would get lockups doing things that would not lock up without the monitor, you should be safe trying it as different hardware may have different results just be prepared to reset your camera a lot.
I ended up just removing mine for now because it frustrated me too much.

Thanks, DragonFlame, hope this issue can be fixed in the future!

Hi everybody,

I've been reading this thread for a while, can't tell how amazed I am with all the stuff going on,
now I feel ready to try and unleash the power of our beloved 7D.
One little question regarding external monitoring:
I read some posts saying that it would be ok to use external monitoring, but not being able to playback footage.
Than I read another post warning not to connect anything to the hdmi port.
Can someone help me with this? I really love my electronic viewfinder..
