anyone else getting this issue? I tried searching but got no mention of this problem anywhere else.

I have a macbook and have the same problem, but it seems it's due to the graphic card. I can't use FCPX for the same reason (Intel GMA X3100 144 MB)

am I limited to 480P like on t2i?

Does the screen blank for a second when you hit record?

1x crop: 1600x900 aprox

And why does my shutter speed change when I adjust my aperture?

This behavior is present when you're not in M mode

or if you're in M mode exposure override OFF

If you don't want it to happen, turn exp override on

maybe you should activate exposure override

for video, the screen values are the good ones. The ones from the top of the camera, are for pictures (as far as I know)

You can't play h.264 videos on camera, only raw and MLV. This is a photo DSLR firmware modified to record video

I think specifically, the 7D ML went unmaintained. Well, we used to have some devs working on it.

It was g3gg0's brilliant breakthrough that first got ML running on the 7D, but the devs stop when it seems like g3gg0 was offended by what some users complained about.

At the time the 7D firmware needed to be signed, and the only way regular users can get the .fir was for the devs to sign them. There were new developments posted on the forum for months but not a single .fir update was posted. Some people felt that the devs kept new developments for themselves and wouldn't share with the community, complained about it and it seems this caused g3gg0 dropped out of the 7D forum.

After a long hiatus, someone figured out how to patch the 7D and run an auto loading ML. Not long after that, the community found out that 1% was hacking away the 6D and the EOS-M then someone asked him to take over the 7D development. At the time 1% didn't have a 7D, but said if they could get him one for testing, he'd work on the 7D for TL.

The community rallied and got him a donated 7D including raising money for shipping.

With the 7D in 1%'s hand, the port went into full development. We even managed to get MLV running. Had it not been for the community's effort, the 7D ML would still be stuck at best with high-bitrate mp4. Of which, the codes has been disabled in ML because it's deemed too risky. But it runs just fine in TL.

With nobody working on the 7D ML, the community found someone willing to fork it and run with it. This is just the way natural selection work with open source software.

In hindsight it might be nice for some of the developments to get pulled back to ML, but given the way TL changes a lot of things that might break the camera, maybe pulling it back to ML wouldn't be such a good idea given ML's propensity to take less risk.

At any rate, I'm really grateful for TL and what 1% has done for the 7D. Just as much as I'm grateful for everyone who has worked on ML. Especially g3gg0.

This breaking up of the two branch is breaking my heart.

If what you say is true, then why some people say that 1% is only taking and taking? His contributions have been so beneficial for 7d owners for example... As far as I know from what i read here. 1% was using A1ex work, but not only for his credit, but for the 7d community. I understand what A1ex said about taking TL to a risky edge, but maybe losing 1% contributions could be worse to the community. I don't know what's 1% reaction to be banned from ML, but it would be better if you bring back the TL threads. I think everyone there knew the risks, no one complained. As long as the risks of TL are well known by the users, there shouldn't be any kind of complaints

(...I remember once, I erased in my computer all the files from the CF card, including the DCIM folder. When I put the card in the camera, it did'nt respond. I was scared as hell and I thought "that's it, i bricked my camera". I knew the risks of playing with something I didn't know enough and accepted i shouldn't complain to anyone in ML or TL for my mistake. Later, i put the card again in the computer and brought back the files from the trash can to the CF card. Everything OK. What I'm trying to say, if everyone is aware of the drawbacks of using TL, there is no need of erasing all their work)
With all respect: You are banning the TL efforts the same way Canon would with you.

The TL threads were part of the ML forum for some time and now they disappeared? Why not let them visible but closed?
Maybe you should change the error message text to this

QuoteUgh? Seems to be divided in to user classes, /me as a big important hero member can access it. Just write enough forum posts (or probably donate and become a contributor) and you'll be elevated to our godly level :-p

That would make it more user friendly  8)
I have this message:

Maybe I'm losing something
Can please anyone tell 50d TL users where is their thread? :'(

First, thanks to Everyone for their contributions to the ML project, specially the Hero members, they made something amazing for amateurs like me and real professionals. The potential of eos cameras is now beyond what any optimistic technician would have thought.

With all respect...
I'm very surprised to see what has happened. I saw the 50d TL thread disappear and now i'm lost. Even though i'm using an old version (31 oct) I read everyday the updates to see the progress of the project. I always saw TL as part of the ML project, because there are contributions from several people. I read the whole 50d thread and now that thread is lost, because the reasons A1ex an 1% told us. That's fine. But you, as Hero members, have a responsability with the users of your development. That was your decision when you made this project public, for the use of other people. That's what i think closing the 50d TL thread is not correct (without relinking or redirecting to a new forum).

Maybe i don't have the right to say this, please forgive my dare
RAWmagic lets you tell the batch conversion which camera is yours

DSLR Controller not working while raw video is on
Maybe this is what you are looking for? (changing the camera profile process)

Maybe Joao applied the bmd film curve. From what i've seen here, that log curve makes look thing darker. Apply Cinelog or Visionlog

It would be interesting to see the DOF at f3 at the wide side of the lens

Adapter from a ebay store from Singapore.

Obviously works but i'm having a issue with centering the crop, known to work well on the HD crop mode on the 600d.

Can you post some footage to see how the lens behaves with the crop? apart from curiosity, thniking about getting one of those lenses.

I tried centering the crop in liveview with no success. I did a test with an image on the center of the frame. Without moving the focus box with the "q" toggle, leaving it on the center of the frame, if you hit record, the image isn't centered; it's partially off-center to the left. Then I moved the focus box with the toggle 5 times to the left, hit record, and the image appears in the same spot than the centered one. The last one, from the center of the image, moved the rectangle with the toggle 5 times to the right and this time the footage looks off-center to the right. Funny.

If you are working the color correction in After Effects, the Color Finesse correction tool has a highlight recovery slider very nice indeed  8)

Quote from: SebaVuye on December 25, 2013, 11:28:15 PM

All true. The overexposed area's are the result of ACR and this flickering issue when adjusting Highlights and Shadows sliders :/ I left those two options untouched in ACR because every adjustment resulted in flickering of my image.

Merry Christmas!

Thanks Riccardo. The Kate Upton was there because the character is having fun, waiting for the demonstrations ends. It's like showing the character's indifference before the consequences of his job.

The greenish tone... recently i've seen several movies of a danish director, Nicholas Winding Refn, and loved his photography, nothing standard, he like to play with the limits of what you see, and that's my intention also. I wanted to create a disturbing atmosphere.

After playing around with the 50d doing some tests, I decided to make something specific. This is my first attempt. CONTROL shows a day in the life of a man hired to generate chaos:

I did it in one night with an actor (the black and white images are h.264). Done with an old version on ML raw (july 16). Most of the shots with a 58mm Helios 44 in some very dark environments, so you'll se some grain here and there, very visible in 3x crop shots with loss of resolution due to the wide aperture (f2)

Later in front of the screen, the real fight began. Working with raw, specially in an old 2008 macbook is a hassle, but it's worth it. Son of a Batch to create DNGs and proxies, Premiere for the editing, After Effects for the negative development and color correction. The first attempt of color correction was made using the VisionColor profile for ACR recently created, but it lifted more grain than working with the original ACR process, so I applied it only on few shots (ACR recognized the dngs with the "Canikon" profile, not the  specific 50d created for this camera)

Later the final touch with the Color Finesse color correction tool for After Effects. lots of options, specially grading the highlights and the shadows. Just amazing. Thanks again for the ML gurus ;D

Great work @simulacro, @hjfilmspeed! Really glad you find VisionLog beneficial to your workflow. (And as a non-photographer it's certainly good to see the profile amounts to more than just a bunch of color matrices)  ;)

I have a little shortfilm edited, soon i'll show the result applying the VisionLog on AE
