Tragic Lantern / Re: 7D Raw Thread
December 07, 2013, 09:06:17 PM
Thanks 1%, toggling headphone monitor off and on after each boot works perfectly to prevent the screen from going black.

I'm sure you're busy coding important things like how to shoot 8k raw at 1000fps with a 7D, but is there any way to have the camera default at startup to headphone monitor off to avoid confusion? Or better yet to toggle the setting itself at boot if it's supposed to be on? (don't know if that's possible, just an idea)

Thanks again!

Not sure if this is the right place for such a question, but I'm using the same build I use with RAW to record some h.264 (raw modules not loaded and raw video turned off) and want to monitor audio on some headphones via an A/V cable. The cable works, and I can hear the audio fine! But when I plug it in, it turns off the LCD, same behavior that I would expect when plugging in an SD monitor. I've tried every setting. Any ideas?

I've never posted on a forum lime this before...

First off, you guys rock. For someone who knows nothing about what you guys do, to me you seem like magicians. Filming on DSLRs is how I make a living, and I will definitely be donating.

My results:
-I have used a 3rd party photix battery successfully when fully charged
-I'm noticing that focus peaking does not work as well at high ISOs, I'm guessing it's picking up the noise as being in focus
-When in the ML menu, pressing the (-) button exits the menu, that's nice, but pressing the (+) button create a strange hybrid of the ML menu and the LV images where only the currently selected ML menu item is overlaying the screen
-When i turn on 16x9 crop so it blacks out the bottom of the screen where the waveform and histograms are, it every-so-often switches back and forth to blue and then black

g3gg0---would it be within your magical powers to enable FULL 1080p HD clean out on this or any camera (if not 7d then what about the 5DMK3?) TO be useful to most of us, it would need to be without sacrificing resolution. If its not possible, what about an improved codec for recording? Maybe mimic the All-I flavor of h.264 available on some of the newer cameras? Any of these would make Magic Lantern not just useful, but a necessity for anyone serious about filming at a professional level. A lot of broadcast acquisition standards mandate a MINIMUM of 50mbps acquisition codec. If you can push the cameras above that limit, it would be a big deal.

It would be worth charging $50 just for that feature. People would buy. Not saying that's how you guys roll, but you could....considering the feature would be most useful to professionals making money from these cameras and maybe some of the most serious basement filmmakers.
