Hardware and Accessories / Re: RAW video download with firewire 800
« on: June 17, 2014, 02:39:02 PM »
The reader I have is the Sandisk Extreme Firewire 800 model. Which, trying to look up the specs online, is definitely UDMA compatible, but I don't know if UDMA 7? It's discontinued, and described in various places as 'legendary', for all that that counts.

Anyone have definitive field experience?

I have used the Sandisk Extreme FireWire800 model for ages, it works just fine.

Could be counterfeit products.

Recently got a pair of Komputer Bay 1000x 64gig cards and have been running benchmark tests.

Now Komputer Bay says in the specs these cards should be getting a minimum of 140mb/s WRITE speed. I seem to be getting half of that. Is this normal with ML? Should I send them back and try again?

Not really, cards are always rating for READ speed and not write speed. However, what you see are the hardware limitation in the camera body.

Set the camera to do a manual sensor cleaning and then wait two minutes. Turn the camera off and on and it should have calibrated black levels, remapped hot pixels and so forth.

Please post an example of the Fixed Pattern Noise you refer to.

This is a really interesting project, Sebastian.

Any reason why you have opted for an external recorder, instead of having internal storage over PCIe? Simplicity for the Beta?

It just seems weird having onboard MicroSD card and not something faster.

The small size of the Apertus Beta seems kinda overshadowed when you need to hook it up with external recorders and whatnot.

Update: Ah ... I could just read what it says on the page. It's because of the Microzed board I suppose.

Do it with CompactFlash ;)

Why are you worried about powering a device with a 7-9V source?

The BMPC will take ANY 12-30V DC input using a standard barrel plug. That means you can buy dirt cheap Lithium-Ion, LifePo4 or any other 12V battery. Heck, you can even strap 12 normal NiMH batteries together for 12V. If you need to pay $300-400 for a battery solution, you are doing it wrong.

I'm not trying to defend the BMPC, it is faulty out of the box (FPN, Audio, low-light etc.), but it has its uses. Namely it produces beautiful images in a well-lit scene, UHD resolution and Global Shutter. Hopefully they will fix FPN and enable RAW soon ... but I can understand people have given up waiting or hoping for that to happen.

Midphase, do you actually have the BMPC?

UHD will make for great Full HD footage, not to mention global shutter.

What do you have doubts about?

will a canon DSLR (5d3) recognize a 256GB as 256GB?

If it is formatted as ExFat, then yes.

You are limited by the hardware, not the SD card.

a tech from adobe just wrote the important points into the cinemadng-thread.

the better ml-ability is a positive sideffect, but never meant as an official support.

regards chmee

Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

Will definitely follow that thread :D

I'm simply referring to this from Adobe announced at NAB '14.

What’s coming to Adobe Creative Cloud.

It specifically says
Expanded native format support now also includes ARRI Amira, Sony STtP, and compressed lossless Cinema DNG from the Blackmagic Pocket Camera.

And some murmuring about how it would help out the current situation with Magic Lantern ... perhaps.

I believe CDNG support will come to Adobe CC in June.

I hope you take constructive criticism :)

Look out for your pans and try to even them out. I counted quickly and you have 18 left to right pans and 11 right to left pans. Normally you would alternate between them so as not to cause your viewers to feel like they are spinning round and round.

I simply noticed you had several left to right pans consecutively.

Nice location!

Logic would mandate that if they are just released, how could any have tried them yet?

Although I do believe someone on this forum actually "beta"-tested some of the cards prior to the official release.

No, the limit is the SD controller inside the camera (currently "rocking" an appalling 21MB/s).

He was simply implying that you made a test shoot before doing the real shoot.

As in, on location, do a quick test and see if everything checks out and then proceed to do the actual shooting.

You should always have a workflow like that, even with "normal" equipment.

I understand Dual ISO RAW video is yet to be ported to 5D2, right?

Any alternative idea for raw video in situations where dual iso video would apply? will dual iso video ever be ported to 5D2 or is there any physical/technical limit?


Please read the Dual ISO white paper to understand why it only works on a few camera models.

Motion blur is very visible.

Just imagine a busy street with cars and cyclists in the background of the subject.

Everyone who has removed the OLPF have returned it to an authorized repair center to get it inserted again.

The filter isn't there for fun and will disable your ability to clean the sensor for dust.

And the 5D Mark III is plenty sharp with RAW.

You can save a lot of time by just doing sunrise and sunset, and then blend together in post.

Depending on subject, of course.

What's different from a CompactFlash card to a Solid State Disk? Aren't they both just means of storage, where the latter is magnitudes faster and cheaper per GB.

I know I will be ordering a BMPC next month and jump on the 4K bandwagon. Not for 4K recording as such but greater Full HD video (and Globel Shutter), as supersampling produces really nice looking results. 880Mbit/s ProRes should be quite enough until the update brings full 12-bit CinemaDNG RAW to the table.

Just rig it up and it should have the same form factor and usability as every other camera.

The bottleneck here Is the CF Card controller , I never seen or heard anyone
Getting better then 78MB/s on the 5D2. :)

As said before your mileage may vary but I have seen several people post speeds over 79MB/s with raw_rec, including myself.
