Tragic Lantern / Re: Raw video on 50d and 40d
« on: July 31, 2013, 01:33:57 AM »
@Araucaria - Tragic Lantern has a feature to auto-disable Global Draw when you hit record. You should be able to shoot with the histogram on without a big hit to performance. ETTR is a method of shooting. If you are referring to the auto-ETTR module, yes, it does work in the 50D but you shouldn't use it for video. Expose with the raw histogram.
I mentioned because someone with a 5dmkiii recomended shooting with ETTR on, I thought maybe it set the aperture to the maximum level without burning after taking a shot and before starting to record.
Anyway, I'll try tragic lantern. Btw, is there a way to get rid of the black borders in tragic lantern? I guess it's trivial but I didn't have time to look for the setting.

Is ETTR still not working one the 50D with raw video?
I've been shooting in crop mode and noise is really a problem, don't even think of iso 200 unless you can severly overexpose, that's why I'm asking. It's  a pain in the ass having to turn historgrams on and off before everyshot. Turning off automaticly globaldraw would help a lot,too. Maybe this is already implemented and I haven't noticed.

Sorry for the offtopic but could I put one of those anamorphic adapters on my glass (12-24 DX, 28-70 2.8,135 2, 28 1.4) with big front elements of 72-77mm?
I see a lot of people putting these on small m4/3 glass or Russian helios,etc... but I don't have a clue about big lenses. Any cheap recomendation?

Card is back running stronger than ever Araucadia, I just stayed positive about the situation.  I'm not sure what I did but all I remember is that I blew air in the pin holes shook the card-up a couple times put it in the memory card reader and Voila everything is there.  Mind you I've been trying for half a day to get it to show, or mount.  Going to reformat and reinstall everything  ;D
Wow, thats great! anyway, if it breaks after the 30 days you still have warrant (2 years in europe) but its a pain to deal with manufacturers.

Less than two months my Komputerbay 64GB 1000X went corrupt, or failed on me lol.. it won't show in camera, won't show on my mac, won't show on my PC.  This is how it happened.. Was running on @Gregoryofmanhattan July 11 Build 5X Zoom mode 1920x818 res aspect ration 2:35 after shooting for 30sec the camera froze-up put the camera switch on off nothing, finally pulled the battery out than put it back in turned it back on than nothing.  For a second I believed my camera was bricked, took the card out turned it on again bam camera was fine.  Contacted Komputerbay a couple times, still waiting for an answer to swap my card.  If anybody had to return their card to Komputerbay, what's the process, and how long does it take for you to get it back?
My 32gb KB card also died while in crop mode after stopping recording it wouldnt finish writing the buffer to the card, it wouldnt turn off so I had to take out the battery. After that there was no way of reviving the card.
Amazon wouldnt offer replace only refund(got lucky because it was during the 30day period). I was goin to get a transcent but the komputerbay is now 69€ and the transcent went from 86€ to 106€. I guess I will go with the transcent anyway, and avoid cropmode.

Is there actually a way to make the camera wheels change the speed and iso values,? or at least the same way it eorks for photo, right now Im always doing it over the menus.

The reason I asked is because when doing multiple shots using external intervalometer, I can get a very  clean shot on my 50D. I was under the impression that the dng files inside the raw file have the same quality.

The only consumer cameras I know of doing that are the nikon v1,v2 and for only 2 seconds,so...

Really wanting to know how to setup the 50d with the 5x crop mode properly. Is there no possible way to view what is actually being recorded? I need to be able to view correct framing.
You could make marks around the camera screen to show the crop boundries in relation to the fullsensor mode.

Lol, don't be so sure.
That would be great!

Anyway, what happened to iso-less? The increased DR is great for the guys tied to canon but the really interesting thing was that iso-less thing.

That's awesome Andy I've been getting those patterns as well but couldn't find a real solution.  Does it also take out edge (Fringing) from leaves?  What output formats does Rawtherapee have?
I just tried with a horrible false color shot and it gets rid of it perfectly, also it looks like it got more resolution.
I will use this for the problematic shots!

That would be great for Newbies Andy.. by the way yesterday was testing your lastest build for some reason my camera heated up quickly that's the first time I got the Red overheating warning any thoughts on why this is occurring?
Maybe it's the summer.

Cleaner than this?
You got me there, that's just plain awesome, if I take the same scene on the d800 I will get definitly more noise, just to begin with, there is no "real noise" just the constant pattern. How are you doing that :P?

Any way to get rid of the pattern, it looks pretty bad on the midtones?

Different exposure time for different pixels? Random out the whole 1:1 live view stream during some time and then writing? ^^

I don't how about you guys, but I just recently saw Alex and Waldo in the bar drinking, and making fun of the guy with Nikon DSLR.
The guy with the clean pattern free shadows?

he decide to switch to nikon hacking.
We nikonian coding profane would love to see some more people on nikonhacker ;)
Simeone found a command to write stuff onto the card, combining that with the live view stream would make a lot of people happy, specially my d800  :'(

Would the CDNGs open in ACR and still be recognized by resolve?
If you make adjustments on the raw it's no raw anymore.

Sharp 50D footage needs a pass through ACR, the best way is to import directly into After Effects and use the defringe option.

Play with the amount and with the colors it affects, keep an eye not destroying your edge colors, you might not see it at first sight but it's noticable.

Hardware and Accessories / Transcent 1000x 32GB
« on: June 29, 2013, 06:49:53 PM »
Given the problems I had today with a Komputerbay 1000x 32gb I'm looking for an alternative. I have found a Transcent 1000x 32GB on amazon for 10€ more then the komputerbay, it's sold and shipped by amazon which would be excellent for me (returning very fast if it breaks,etc...) What kind of speeds are you getting with this card? I have seen some people reporting continuous 1080 with it.

Well, if you get a good one you will have no problem, if it fails you can always get a refund!

Thanks Andd, I tried the program but it makes nothing (formats the card but nothing happens). I guess the controller is broken, I requested pickup from amazon, they won't replace so I will have to wait until they give me the money to buy a new one. Maybe I get a better brand, but they are so expensive...

Hardware and Accessories / Broken Komputerbay 32gb 1000x

Today my komputerbay 32gb 1000x died after write corruption. Now it shows up as a 30 megabyte card, and it won't format neither in windows nor in ANY of my cameras (nikon,canon). I know it's foolish to rely on one sole card but I was looking forward to use it tomorrow. Any ideas about using a recovery program?

It seems I fucked up today, I was shooting in Crop mode but the led wouldn't go off after recording, I waited for a few minutes, then I turned off the camera and a ML message "Memory Corruption at frame 327" came on screen. I took out the battery and when I turned on the camera again the card needed format, but I can't format the thing, not on Windows, not in Camera, my nikon D3 formats it but with no result. Any ideas?

Thanks for your workflow! But I have one question, is there any way to speed up or use the gpu to render the previews? In resolve I almost get full speed but in AE with Acr i get 1fps, setting AE up to use 6 cores (i7 2600k HT) doesn't really help and CPU levels stay at 30%. I might have the thing set up wrong, it's basically as slow as rendering *.nef timelpase secuences of my nikons, only that these have huge res and my 50d footage is small.

I just tried your converter (1.1.9) for the first time, and it's working very slow for me (like one frame every two or more seconds) but I have 0% CPU usage, am I doing something wrong? Maybe I have an old verstion of raw2dng, I don't know.

Ok I was doing it wrong, just drag and drop the RAW file, not the dng sequence, thanks for the converter!

« on: June 28, 2013, 12:27:42 AM »
Never tried file spanning, 300-400 frames is already too much for the things I shoot, and I don't want to waste write cycles on my card, that's why I didn't go any further. Great job btw!

I just tried magiclantern-2013Jun27.50D.109.go.unified.b77a85f7ac68 with a Komputerbay 32 1000x in 1920x1080 crop mode, got over 1100 frames and stopped it because it was reaching 4gb. It said 2000expected and it kept growing, the buffer graph was only slowly filling.
