General Help Q&A / [550D] Intervalometer with mirror lockup
« on: September 01, 2014, 01:38:14 AM »
Is it possible to take pictures for a timelapse without having the mirror to move between every pictures aka take silent-ish pictures? I noticed mirror lock up has "self timer" as option, what does it mean? I wasn't able to lock the screen. Not even live view.

I highly suggest you download the original video ( cause youtube destroys the image quality.

I love this converter. What if I wanted to get the converted DNGs all in one folder?

Duplicate Questions / Re: SD Cards for recording raw video
« on: April 27, 2014, 01:54:11 AM »
The card reader on both is capped at 21MB/s so anything above that would be useless.

wouldn't it be great if we could replace the SD card reader on those cameras stuck at 21MB/s with a faster one?:P

 I can answer question 3. You can choose in the settings whether to stop or continue,

Hardware and Accessories / Transcend Class 10 SDHC UHS-1 cards
« on: April 24, 2014, 11:00:52 PM »
I own an old transcend 16GB Class 10 SDHC card that on my canon 550d and computer doesn't go over 15-16MB/s in write speed. I was wondering if this new model UHS-1 (good for a future upgrades) has a bump on speeds ALSO for standard SDHC readers (at least 21MB/s to record continuous raw) or if it's always capped at 16MB/s and the speed increase is only for UHS readers.

You need to spend some time on the General Development part of the forum and start reading some of the more technical posts.

The answer to your question is CPU. There just isn't enough CPU speed on the cameras to convert 24 frames per second to JPEG, not even close.

As far as the HDMI output, HDMI is a standard set in place, with controller chips which obey that standard. It is not a faucet that you can pipe anything you want through. Raw data, JPEG, or other formats are simply incompatible with HDMI and can't be transferred through it. Further, you would need a recording device which could understand what type of data is being recorded, and no such device exists.

If you want a camera which is affordable, records in high resolution, is pretty stable and reliable with the least amount of compromises, you should look into what Blackmagic has to offer you.

Thank you for the clarification.

There's one thing I never understood :) If cameras limited to 21MB/s the card speed is the bottleneck why going the JPEG way? I mean if the camera is able to capture 26 RAW frames in about 1 second why not capture the same frames in JPEG in 2K (to get the best resolution) in a way every second you don't over 21MB/s... of course assuming the software camera can do that like if it was video and not be limited by the burst mode for pictures!

Also wouldn't be amazing if the HDMI output could be used to transfer data? All cameras would become REDs :D

What does closed mode mean?
I have the same question, basically I'm shooting a daylight time-lapse every minute, so the display stays on every shot for 59 seconds, is there a way to keep it off between shots? I understand it shows the timer for next picture but the battery is affected

thank you, by "720p" I mean that I set 1280x720 16:9 in ML but the Canon setting was at 1080p24 so if it's the same line skipping as 640p the quality I'm seeing is the best one I can get, it just looks bad for being a "720P" image but I understand why now.
I'm upset the SD controller of our camera is stuck at 20MB/s meaning there's no real future for this one:(

Hi, i just tried various frame rates, is it normal on 720p frames I get extreme moiré and bad quality (in terms of detail)? I'm not sure but maybe the real gain in resolution only starts at 1080p frames? Does 720p on 5d mk3 (the heaven for raw) look as bad ?

I see...well I meant to develop something for APS-C sensors since not everyone is interested in spending many $ks for full frame. Is here a new  APC-S camera with CF card support?

BTW do we have access to HDMI yet via ML? Maybe transfer the RAW video through it...imagine what it would happen :D A revolution :D

I understand the product targeting part but I don't understand the technical part. Isn't RAW 1080p using the whole sensor? What does have it do with pictures or cropping? If yes wouldn't be easier for them to compress the RAW video we now have access to? It's already there !! or maybe I didn't understand the process completely...the RAW stream is something ML developers were able to "force" out of the camera?

I own the 550D and if the SD controller is the bottleneck I don't see the point of even trying to get RAW's better they concentrate on more capable cameras (maybe the newer 650D) sell and upgrade to those.

Nice job! :)

Alex does it make a difference having newer digic processors for RAW video?

help me understand, we now can get 1080p RAW video from their cameras without putting extra work on the CPU, this means that there's an actual stream created by default by Canon's internal "code". So why in the world don't they use this data to compress videos but instead they do some strange line-skipping?

What is the size of 1 minute of 1920x1080 RAW footage?

I wonder what Canon is thinking about this. Their crippling has been converted into a better version of the high end video cameras they want to protect! AHAHA!

You were able to use this on the 600D?

How can I try it? :P

Nevermind: I didn't know there was a build for the 600D
