Have down'd  firmware from 123-113 and have been able to record 2560x1090 at 24p MLV raw+audio for min 14secs to a maximum of 27 secs using card spanning (KMB 64gb 1000x & Lexar sd 32gb 666) and have converted to MOV using latest version mirawviewer  , so far after about 25 test shots I have had no pink frames and only one dropped frame right at the beginning of one of the shots.
Its very hit and miss between record times (14-27secs) no mater what settings are turned on or off , but at the mo 15 secs is almost bankable .

graded in resolve , kodak 2383 film lut + grade
footage shot on the fly for grade testing .

I don't know , you go to all the effort to make something look good and VIMEO makes it look like crap , there is a download link below if anyone is interested in the original file.

More work on grading done this time using a raw shot , converted to PR444 , graded in resolve , stabilised in AE and cut and sharpened in PP , I took several shots around Nottingham with the aim of making it as difficult for myself to qualify the skin tones without having to resort to power windows, what became clear in post is "A" raw & pro res is a much better format to work with than 264 and "B"  trying to stabilise very shaky footage ruins the quality.

I made this small test for a friend    ( the girl in the vid who asked me   to film the event  didn't understand what I meant by Grading the footage)    , I think I overdid it on the eyes but apart from that I think im getting there if not slowly .
H.264 , converted to Dnxhd , skin is still a bitch to qualify , but im getting better...also slowly.

Thanks baldavenger , ive had Resolve for over a year , but never used it for much more than adding color to my flat footage , I then came across a web page where ther was a love/hate discussion going on about the orange/teal use in digital film, this is when I first became aware of grading in general and realised I no longer wanted my own footage to look like video i wanted it to look like film.
Anywho-many hundreds of frustrating hours later I finally feel like im "JUST"
 starting to get to grips with grading and im even enjoying applying it to footage , the only real downside is that I can no longer watch anything , films , adverts , mini series without analysing the grading .

Reworked image from Andys comments , soloed the hand and reduced the highlights to match the rest of the image , then went back and passed the skin tones through a new YUV node emitting channels 2&3 adding 2 clicks of negative blur as instructed , undid all other sharpening bar one click on the final node.
Initially I found it hard to notice the difference , then after a short while I thought the image looked nicer-softer in the right places with a better less harsh detailing in the subjects face.
Thanks Andy I think ive just got a little better at this grading malarkey.

Wow , thanks Andy , this is just what I was after , I did qualify just the skin into 3 parallel nodes for shadows , mids and highlights , I sharpened the mid and high nodes two stops and then another 3 stops for the overall image in the final node , way to much sharpening I can hear you saying ;) .
With the highlights I was trying to add a bit more shininess to his face as it was looking a bit plastic and flat and at the same time trying to ignore the blown highlights on his hand i did in the end put an oval tracking window over the forehead and ears to isolate them from the hand , but obviously I need to work on this.
The biggest problem for me has been just isolating the skin tones from the background , when qualifying allot of background is picked up so I try to refine and narrow the area and then I start to loose parts of the area Im trying to qualify and I seem to go back and forth over and over again untill I just have to settle on a happy medium , is there a secret to getting just the skin tones or even better a tutorial that you know of ?
Ill get on later with reworking those areas you picked up on and repost a vid or still of the results.

Thanks again.

This is a production still from a wedding I shot some time ago, its not from RAW but good old 264 converted to DNXHD and graded in resolve , ive been grading more recently with RAW and I have to say its a damn site easier working with 14bit than 8.
The grade is of coarse my own home made variant on the orange/teal look , i did originally buy a couple of luts that I thought would give me the same results , but to be honest , they are crap and your footage just looks like orange/teal MUD , so I decided to make my own , as im not a professional colorist or davinci expert , to get this far has taken a long time.
I know this not RAW or a video but I wouldnt mind some feedback on the grading.

Thanks chmee ive been looking at other newer cameras such as the sony a7s and gh4 and was wondering just how much color depth difference there was between working with raw and the smaller 8-bit coming out of thoes cameras.

What is the bit rate coming out of the 5D3 with MLRAW enabled  is it 8 , 10 or something else or maybe it dose not apply to raw ?


Oh , im such a dumb ass  :o i was using the HDR not duel iso , now its enabled im making progress .
Thankyou dmilligan without your query god knows how long i would have been pondering this one.


Hi , I was using the beta version but have switched to the 2.1 but still having the same result ,
this is all happening probably cus im not sure what result im supposed to expect or maybe the exported DNG's are an supposed to be an exact copy of what I imported to LR ? , I was assuming that this program would merge the two low and high iso DNG's to give you one balanced DNG ?

Hi Danne , I watched your lightroom vid and tryed to follow it to the letter , but i dont get merged DNG's at the end just the same DNG's renamed to duel iso , I am on windows not a mac , dose this make difference , I have filtered through various different workflows on ML and to be honest not much of it seems to be making much sense in layman's terms , your vid and description seems to be the simplist one to follow but im still no achieving a result ...yet.

Converted my duel iso raw MLV into DNG , import it into Lightroom then export it via the ML cr2hdr , and this is the bit I dont understand , I just seem to get the same DNG's renamed to duel iso , I thought it was suposed  to merge them .  .  . . .

i have many frame drop using 31 march 2014 build on .raw file

i tried mlv, doesn't work for me

using komputerbay 1050x 128gig

Same here on 30th build , gone back to 17th - more stable on raw and mlv.
Highest recorded temp is 48 after two minutes continuous record RAW, is every one else getting similar temps ?

I hope the mystery update is a free C.500 to all ML users  ;)....No!....oh well.

In my personal opinion , no , unless you want the ability to remove the bootflag , then yes.
Ive found the MLV modules on both 113/123 not reliable enough to rely on , but this is no problem as I prefer the audio out of my h4n anyway and syncing is not such a big hassle , but I have had more stopping using  123RAW than I did with 113RAW also my camera seems to heat up faster and run higher temps if only by 3 or so degrees but the most noticeable downside if you can call it that is that 123 seems to eat up battery life allot quicker than 113 (I should add that is just what SEEMS to be happening it could all just be my poor take on using both firmwares).
So what am I running on both my Mk3's ?, 123 mainly cause I cant be arsed to revert back to 113 and cause 123 seems to be the way forward even if it is a little bit less stable at the moment , there are of course no more nightly s for it at the moment so im holding my breath in anticipation for what is next-if anything.


Sweet , love the shots of the rainfall and the rainbows simply beautiful.
