thanks milligan...i wrote my question inaccurately.  I meant to ask if we could have a 3x crop mode in stills mode as well during time lapses?

3
Also, does the 3x crop mode only work for video or can we do it for our lenses.  I have an 85 1.4 and 50 1.8 was going to try doing 3x crop mode on 85 (330mm 3x crop!)

4
didn't make a difference turned off after maybe 30 seconds...reset most functions and seems to work now...

Anyone going to try a time-lapse of the Supermoon tonight after dark?  Any setting recommendations?

5
You know...there is so much irony in that suggestion. Haha...So I went with a friend and we made it a point to relax at the park and enjoy the view as I tried the time-lapse suggestions.  I tried about 10 times to make it work and after taking 5 pictures or so the camera would shut off and stop taking pictures.  I would hit a view buttons and try again.  Same result.

I almost through my camera at a small child passing by.

Any idea why it would do this?

Ahh thanks just made the changes walking to the park now... will get there by 7

Updated settings for tonight:

2. WB: Auto
3. ISO 100
4. Shutter 1/50
5. AP f4
6. Auto ETTR : slowest shutter (1") highlight ignore (.5%) 5ev/3ev
7. Global Draw: On, all modes
8. zebras: raw RGB
9. Spotmeter: raw, afbox
10. histogram: raw histobar
11. Intervalometer: ON, 15s, stop after 480 shots

After this is set...can I let it sit for 2 hours or will I need to ramp up ISO as it gets darker manually (if so how?)

Thanks again for the invaluable information gentleman!  Any suggestions for Day-Night shots?  I unfortunately only have a 50 and 85 for my FF but a 17-50 for Canon 60D.  I will try this for now and maybe the 60D tomorrow.

I took 15" for interval as I saw someone else post it...any other suggestions I would def. try.  Also about slower shutter how about 1" ?

9
Should slowest shutter be 15"?  How are the rest of the settings. And thanks for taking the time to considerately respond!

Tried a time-lapse last night but was completely off.  I am very new to this and read through the posts.  When setting everything up i get stuck on this step:

Take two or three pictures until the RAW histogram ETTR hint is less than 0.2j

How does one exactly perform this?  Any videos showing a step-by-step process of setting everything up?  I am also not sure what is meant to be doing throughout.  If i set it up properly do I just click the shutter to engage the intervalometer and sit back for 2 hours or do I have to manually make changes as the day turns into night.  If so how?

The settings I have for a sunset tonight in NY (start at 7-9):

1. 5d Mark iii - 50mm 1.8 lens on MF
2. WB: 2700
3. ISO 100
4. Shutter 1/50
5. Ap f 16
6. Auto ETTR : slowest shutter (32") highlight ignore (.5%) 5ev/3ev
7. Global Draw: On, all modes
8. zebras: raw RGB
9. Spotmeter: raw, afbox
10. histogram: raw histobar
11. Intervalometer: ON, 15s, stop after 480 shots
12. Post deflickr: Adobe XMP/50%/-4EV


Sorry.  I understand the overwhelming knowledge and the experience of this community far outstrips my very new-to-the-game disposition.  But I appreciate any help and advice!

I'd love to get great shots of the sunset in Queens tonight and make sure the set up and process is accurate before I overwhelm myself with my Mac and the post-process!

Cheers.

Hardware and Accessories / Re: iMac 27" and Storage Solution

Thanks! I thought about Hackintosh but not being to update, etc. turned me off big time.  iMac 27" it is...either now or in October...but they may not come until January or after...I think I could be okay with current version.

How about this:

Can I get away with 2gb Raid O and USB 3 for ML Raw footage?  I do short narrative/documentaries for my students so I was thinking I import both 64gb KB cards onto the 2gb Raid 0 for editing (128gb of footage) then after the final video is created deleting all DNGs and raw data, thus freeing the Raid 0 2gb drive up for the next project and transferring the final video to a 4, 6, or 8 TB external HDD 7200 rpm for storage of pictures/documents/videos only

Any gaps in my logic?  I was considering 4tb Raid 0 but i'd rather save $$$

Hey community...few questions:

1. I am purchasing an iMac 27" with a 256 SSD to run OS and Apps
2. I will upgrade the ram to 32gb (or is this overkill?)
3. I need two external HD solutions (1 for importing/editing/converting/exporting) (1 for backup)

Thanks!

Greetings community,

I am going to be purchasing a Komputerbay 128gb 1000x card form Amazon this week and begin my journey learning how to use ML for video raw and photos.

I had an idea, wasn't sure if anyone would be interested.  This is such an open source and helpful community that I wanted to offer a nice NYC lunch and B&H ($25) gift card for any locals who would like to meet up in NYC for a day of ML recording/shooting.  The purposeful would be twofold:

1. Meet up with like-minded enthusiasts to create some great footage
2. Serve as a learning/teaching platform for members to expedite the learning curve

Hope there is some enthusiasm generated.  Even if you're new to this and not an expert maybe we could meet and try to figure this out together.

Cheers
