A quicklook plugin would be amazing

As a general rule magic lantern doesn't implement anything that can be done easily in post. Try handbrake. Also, it might have a 480p mode.


Hi @Midphase

Fair call, but it's been working fine up 'til about a week ago!  :o

If I had to have a wild guess, I'd say your gpu is on the way out :(

Better than what the camera can write so you are all good

That's quite an old build (2012). You'll want to install one from the nightly builds.

I'm a little bit confussed now, I understand that, for example, the 7D can do continuous RAW video at 1728 x 972 with a data-rate of 70Mb/s. Shouldn't be better with 91 Mb/seg? (or is it that the 7D requires not 70Mb/seg but 70MB/seg to do that continuous raw videos?)

Thanks for pointing that out!
7d writes at about 72mB/s. That is correct

Maybe you have old batteries. With my 7d I used to get terrible battery life (around 30 minutes recording time) buy new batteries for it up to around 2 hours.

Does that button actually do something?

Which is a measly 11.375 mB/s

Maybe you had frame skipping turned on

You lost horizontal at the end but that's diy brushless gimbals for ya.

I think I'm also experiencing it with a gtx 780

3x crop mode

I got this too, the fix is apparently to set the maxram limit lower but I haven't tried it yet.

As somebody that flies multirotors, the biggest camera you can hang under a small 650 sized quad is a blackmagic cinema camera or an eos m.

Have you looked into selling the 5d3's after the shooting has finished? You won't lose too much value and you will have a far more stable setup.

Don't forget if you plan to shot in non-crop mode you will absolutely need a vaf filter for the 7d. It suffers quite badly from moire. Fortunately if you use the correct post-processing technique then you can mostly fix the ISO banding.

Also the 5Dii and 7d don't support exfat but the clips automatically split themselves at the 4gb mark.

Good luck!

General Chat / Re: NEW H.265 CODEC

Which is which?

H264 and then H265?


WOW, can you share your Hackintosh specs? Thanks a lot! (I'm about to build one)

4770k and a gtx 770 4gb.

I would definitely go with a 780 if I had my time again (the place I bought my parts from didn't have it in stock)  as you can generally only use 4gb of ram on a 770 if it's in sli and davinci resolve lite doesn't support multiple graphics cards. 

I would guess my playback speed is approximately 20fps. Would be awesome to see some gpu processing.


In 1.1.5 CPU demosaicing (used for MOV export) now uses all available cores.

With my hackintosh overclocked to 4.7ghz I'm getting nearly real time playback. Thanks baldand


No sense of humor hey!
Tbh I preferred your explanation. You said pretty much the same thing [emoji12].

It isn't about data rate, it's about sensor limitation. The fps override only works up to about 36fps at 1080p and obviously 60 when it switches to 720p mode. You can get higher resolution in raw at 60fps but it will be squished.

ML doesn't have the fps override yet so if you want to shoot in crop mode you are going to need TL

Raw Video / Re: Can the 7D shoot 2.5k RAW continuously?
« on: March 23, 2014, 11:16:31 PM »
I'm sorry to say the 7D doesn't have the best ISO performance and will probably suffer from hot pixels. I guess that's sensors for you


Do you mean thumbnails in the individual DNG files, or something else?
Yeah, essentially the option found in the adobe dng converter.

It would be awesome if you could include a JPEG preview for those people on mac 10.9 mavericks. Not entirely sure how that works
