Possible candidates for modding?

There must be one company out there who can capitalise on our needs. Or maybe the product in my Amazon link could be modified to channel the cf readout (to sata) before it's converted to ethernet?

@pascalc Nice efforts, shame it didn't work out.

I don't think there is anything to gain by down scaling any bit depth of raw as it would entail discarding pixels and squeezing the rest into your chosen resolution. Standard EF lenses should work at any resolution on the 5D2 and if anything, this workflow increases the performance of your lens by utilizing the sharpest part of the glass. All you need is a 1000x cf card and you are able to record 1880 x 840 at 14 bit, which covers most of the horizontal on my LCD. Yes they are expensive, but if Canon offered an upgrade to unlock raw video capabilities, I wouldn't think twice about shelling out. I was also getting reliable 720 with a 30MB/s Sandisk Ultra.

Raw Video / Re: Raw video on 5DMK2
« on: May 26, 2013, 07:16:41 PM »
Hello
Thanks
Great work!!
I have a question: I have the last version of Magic Lantern on my 5D MK2 (downloaded on http://www.magiclantern.fm/) and I 'd like to install the RAW function but I don't know if I have just to copy the last autoexec.bin on the card root folder ...
Thanks
Touch

Go to first post:

http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5655.0

and download:

raw_rec.mo
https://bitbucket.org/pravdomil/raw_rec.mo/downloads/raw_rec.mo

work with a.d.'s ML bff47c520033
https://bitbucket.org/a_d_/magic-lantern/downloads/bff47c520033.zip


Move raw_rec.mo to the modules folder of bff47c520033 and copy the files to the root of your card.

As far as I am aware, raw is a 14 bit record of what the sensor sees and that view is cropped to allow the camera to record it. The 5d2 seems incapable of reliably handling anything above 1880 x 840, but the developers are working on 12 & 10 bit code which might unlock more of the sensor. I still don't get "record in 720p but utilize the full lens view" do you mean up scaling the LCD display or down scaling the 5616 × 3744 pixels to ? x 720?

131
Thinking out loud:

Would it be possible to butcher two cards and harvest the connectors to construct a female to female cf extender? One end goes in the camera, the other in something like this:

http://www.fancycost.com/cf-to-sata-converter-adapter-green-p-54074.html#.UZ-immhIFrQ

Even if you had to power the sata component with another source?

132
Mine worked fine straight out of the box. All I can offer is maybe install the card in the camera and tether it to the pc?

133
"record a 720 RAW clip using the full 5DmkII sensor"

If you are using the FULL sensor it can't be 720?  1880 x 840 is the highest stable resolution I can achieve with a 1000x card.

Refused to record more than 14 frames at this point and had to reformat card in camera.

I think with these cards it's the luck of the draw. The chips could have failed Lexar's QC for different reasons, some of those reasons will be minor and some more severe. I think I'll hold off on new cards and see how the ssd route pans out.

Komputerbay 64GB 1000x: perpetual recording upto 1880x840 using 20 May build from a.d.

137
The Transcend 32GB 1000x can be picked up for just under the same price as a Komputerbay 64GB 1000x. Would need to see a drastic increase in card speed to justify that, although we will see how these cheap cards hold up in a month's time.

I saw the post regarding the origins of the cards. The Amazon storefront is registered to the area mentioned in it, so it seems legit.

138
Yeah 64GB 1000x Komputerbay bought from:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/browse.html?ie=UTF8&marketplaceID=A1F83G8C2ARO7P&me=A15KH8GEK4WQL1

I was thinking of getting a 32GB Lexar, but if this is faster as you say then I'll just grab more of these.

Thank you, a.d.

1880x840 is great but if you need to fill a standard HD frame, try 1720x960.  When blown up to 1920x1080 it still looks worlds better than H264.  I'm getting about 450-600 frames at this resolution on the 5D2, at a write speed of about 59MB/sec on a Lexar 1000x 32GB.  An improvement to 64-65MB/sec would probably enable unlimited recording at this resolution.  I'm optimistic that Hack3d mode or other write speed improvements will get us there.  Is anyone seeing reliable 65MB/sec speeds on any Komputerbay cards?

20 May build, 5d2, 1720x960, Lens cap on, GD off, sound off, hacked off:

1st clip: Buffer had just reached 4 stars, then I reached the 4GB file limit, so not perpetual recording at that resolution for the 64GB Komputerbay in a 5d2.

2nd clip: 1242 frames then dropped one, buffer filled quicker this time.

3rd clip: Buffer coasting at 3 stars at limit.

4th clip: 5 stars flashing at limit.

5th clip: 3 stars flashing at limit.

67MB/s was the peak speed, but averaged 65.8MB/s to 66.2MB/s.

Will do more tests with hacked and complex images



1880x840 is perfect for 2.35:1 just needs scaling to 102.1%

Thanks, Ted.

Seems the highest reliable resolution is 1880 x 840 for me, which is certainly usable.

My 64GB 1000x has just arrived, initial test not looking great. Wouldn't allow 1920 x 1080 and only managed 150 odd frames at 1880 x 1080 using May 19 build on 5d2. Global draw off, no sound.

@Grunf the card door is fixed in place with a swinging metal plate that covers most of the exposed area of the card when closed. There is about 25 mm width clearance on the camera body between the 2 door pegs for going under the door, but it's obviously designed to be sealed to a degree.

144



Yep I sent of a mail too, lets see whats happens, I like the idea of being able to close the 5D III flap

This. The ability to keep the door closed is a big point. I imagine most of us are exposing the card slot a lot more than we ever have and it can't be good in the long run. If this company would be prepared to produce a limited run of CF to sata solutions, I'll take 2.

A proposal to this wonderful Open Source community!

To help the DEVS and everybody it would be a good idea if specific RAW video issues are discussed in a separate thread based on the camera under discussion.




+1 and maybe change the title of this thread to direct everyone to the first post for FAQ.

Im going to catch flack for asking this again, but I did not see a response in the pages since posting.

I think the devs have moved away from HDMI hacking due to limitations of the tech, but they surprise us constantly. If you have an external recorder it might be worth selling it and buying a few fast CF cards.

Just took some more shots which I'm transferring at the moment and during the session the 5d2 crashed.  It's no big deal and the camera was fine, but a bunch of text documents appeared in the root (ASSERT00 to 11, log000 and CRASH00) and I was told to inform the devs. I'll upload the log000 file if it's needed, here is the text in the crash document:

Take a look at this.

http://www.globalsources.com/gsol/I/Disk-on/p/sm/1056225379.htm

I was looking into this the other day.

http://www.waeplus.co.uk/item/186209/Socket-EA2917-722-Fast-Ethernet-Card---C

This particular model isn't fast enough and the card door will need tricking, plus you need another device to store the data... but it's another possible solution.
