General Help Q&A / Re: How to on time-lapse that moves...

I would recommend you read up on the ULTIMATE time-lapse FAQ thread :)

Sorry...but with last ML is it now possible to use AF during video recording on 7d?
Thanks.

There is no continuous auto-focus with these dSLR models. You still have to shoot in manual mode and that means manual focus as well.

Filmed almost entirely in raw using AD's October 24th build. I felt like I took a risk shooting 10-15min interview sessions in raw, but everything held up perfectly.

One or two hacked GH2 shots in the B roll. Graded with ColorGhear

Looks great but it suffers heavily from lipsync here?

Is there any way the card space remaining monitor can be updated in real-time? Or some log be kept so that we can know exactly how much space is remaining on the card? It's pretty much the only thing left in the way of using raw on a professional shoot, because I have only a vague idea of when the space is going to run out.

Turn the camera off and on.

Could we leave the "Waaah, not my desired platform" out of this, please.

I wonder why they haven't made any videos showcasing their supposed superior solution handling Cinema DNGs.

Nonetheless, I just downloaded it and will give it a swing as soon as the missus is out of the house.

Update: Whenever I try to ingest any .DNGs from Magic Lantern the application crashes. It takes whole .RAW files though, so you have to combine files that are >4GB before ingesting them.

But with this teory the lexar 800x must be work fine at 1880, and it seems that the camera cant go up 40Mb/seg...(in my camera)
?????

Nope, the Lexar 800x rating is based on read speed, not write speed.

24 or 25, with booth the same Result...when start record and arrives to +/-27mb/seg stop recording...and before to start record in the Magic menu said with this resolution only expecteed 140 frames...
It isnt normal, really???

Benchmark the Lexar 800x CompactFlash card in ML. It may not be fast enough at your chosen resolution.

It would be a good start to mention what camera you are using and what build of Magic Lantern.

Who makes it? I've been looking for a FW800 CF card reader for a while now and can't find one!

I believe it is called Sandisk Extreme FireWire Reader :)

I plan on getting a Metabones Speedbooster, but I'm not sure how that would improve the dynamic range of the 50D.

I was talking specifically for the BMPCC, as it won't work on the 50D.

I'll probably get some hate for posting this, but here it is anyway. A comparison between the 50D and the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera RAW.


50D is still the incredible useful for it's price, but if you like the flexibility of the 5D Mark III RAW video but don't want to pay $3,000+, consider the Pocket Cam. Especially since it's now in stock.

Buy a Metabones Speed Booster to get that Super 16 to Super 35 and gain 1 stop of light! :)

Also, it is very apparent that you didn't ETTR equally. It seems you sacrificed a lot more highlights on the BMPCC to gain better shadow performance or does the BMPCC simply preserve highlights. Try making the same comparison with highlights instead of shadows.

I've been using a FireWire800 card reader for a few years now, no problems with any CF cards (this is true even for UDMA7 cards).

You can reframe with the joystick.

No news on the final VAF from Mosaic Engineering, as far as emails or phone calls.

... Been on a shoot for the past 5 days in Tucson,AZ. Just shoot a documentary for the 14th conference for the National Scenic and Historic trails. Volunteered for the project and shoot about 1TB of footage.

Had two files in the mix of nearly 200 shots where the 2nd .roo was not finished in the writing due to camera errors. Will look into both the VAF and to find a way to fix a .roo file.

Again, the VAF isn't hitting the 50 d's resolution that hard. Also, I read somewhere about the 5d3 having an anti-aliasing filter and the possibility of removing the filter. Is the 50 d the same?

Surely you mean .r00?

The 5D Mark III has an Optical Low Pass Filter, as the only camera compatible with Magic Lantern. Removing it also introduces problems because that filter, filters light in the infrared (IR) wavelength, which would cause your color balance to shift to a more purple hue (everything black will shift to a slight purple tint). This can be remedied by using an IR Filter in front of the lens though. Oh yeah, and the filter is there to remove moiré in the first place.

I don't think anyone have tried it out with RAW video though.

One more catch, you also remove the ultrasonic dust reduction panel, which is in the OLPF as well. Meaning you can't remove dust any longer and will need to send it in to a professional technician to get it cleaned.

My guess is that the sensor won't do more than 30 fps, no matter how fast your card is. If it does more, it is by lowering the resolution, so then you don't need faster storage either.

If the sensor can't send out more data than what a fast CF card can handle, then switching to an SSD drive is pointless. Except for cost.

More data and consistent data flow is quite vital in my opinion but since your needs are already meet, perhaps it is time we halt all development...

Besides, you can already do 48FPS and up to 60 FPS on the 5D Mark III. In fact, it is being held back by the slow speed of CompactFlash cards at this time.

The mount on the BMPCC maybe be made for micro 4/3 glass, but the sensor is sized for Super16mm glass. There will be a crop factor of around 3 when comparing to full frame. The 50D has a 1.6 crop factor.

Therefore the BMPCC will require an investment in lenses to cover the wide end and also if you are wanting shallow DOF that has a similar look to the 50D then you will need fast lenses.

They are different cameras, personally I see the 50D as a cinema type camera and the BMPCC as more of a documentary camera. That extra DR will come in useful when you are in a situation that you can't light properly.

I'm surprised people aren't seeing the Metabones Speed Booster with the BMCC as a great alternative, making the BMCC nearly Super 35 and gaining 1 full stop brighter footage. After all, whether you like it or not, you are simply not getting 1080p out of the 50D.

Upscaling will never be as good as the real thing.

No reason to chase the sacred unicorn (or the dragon for that matter).

Hi folks!
I finaly migrated from 550d to 5dm2 and got some questions.
I registered basic preferences to CF1 mode for RAW shooting, but how to change Shutter speed on the fly without entering ML menu?
Different lamps have different frequency and sometimes it's flickering at 1/50th.
With t2i I could change shutter speed by holding down Av+Dial, how to do the same with 5dm2?

I suggest you read the manual if doing something as simple as changing shutter speed can be confusing ;)

See the wheel right behind the shutter button?

This mode will be loaded at next reboot.
Please, help!!!

Can you be a bit more specific?

Where can we find the latest info on MLV? Any compiled, updated list of features? I remember there being a thread for it but I can't seem to find anything now...

Look at the very first post in this thread ...

Hi guys! So i haven't been here a two montHs and im curious if there is any new stuff in ML for 7D? I was going through this thread and found that it's possible to shoot 1080p but only in crop mode and the continuous resolution is something about 1728x972px  no crop. But maybe i something overlooked, so could someone write me some recapitulation of the last ML version? Pleeeaase guys  :)

Instead of expecting people to spoon feed you, why don't you make yourself a nice cup of warm cocoa, don your reading glasses and start reading the thread? ;)

Sometimes it doesn't hurt to do a bit of work to learn something new.

I can help test the 5D Mark II, if needed.

Stop making multiple threads about what is essentially the same topic, whether you should buy the Canon 5D Mark III or the new Sony A7R, please.

Read a little about Magic Lantern to understand its limits and why the CompactFlash or SD card isn't always what is making the limitations.
