Raw Video / Re: ML RAW 30p Record Times on 5D Mark iii?
« on: August 28, 2014, 12:17:51 AM »
Try turning off global draw if you haven't already. Continuous 1920x1080 at 30p is possible with hacked preview.

Try posting a link to a single DNG example along with the settings you used. It sounds like you may be underexposing the shot, but we won't know for sure until we can see a DNG. Try exposing to the right to see if that helps.

Also, keep in mind that camera will apply noise reduction when shooting H.264, but that's not the case with RAW.

Nope, the sensor is not capable and the rest of the hardware will not support it.

Raw Video / Re: 5D Mark II and 5d Mark III Raw

Try using Resolve, it's free and will hold you over until you decide which one to go with. It's a great debayering tool that features a basic NLE, the next version of Resolve will have a more advanced NLE. I currently use Resolve with Premiere and After Effects CC.

Also reading back on your original post, are you sure you recorded RAW video on the Mark II? The videos from the Mark II should not play in Windows Media Player unless if they were H.264 or already converted using MLViewer. The RAW from both cameras shouldn't be vibrant until they are processed, the 5D Mark II will also give a false impression of being sharper due to the aliasing.

What settings are you using and what's your workflow? The RAW footage from either camera should not be playing in WMC, it's dependent upon the format the video is converted into. The video from the Mark III shouldn't appear to be grainy unless if it is underexposed. Try posting up some DNG files from each and note the settings used on each shot.

These LUTs aren't designed to recover all the highlights, they're designed to create a more natural roll off. In your example there is still a lot of room to fine tune in ACR, your overall exposure is too high. But ACR is also not recovering the highlights well in your example, the rolloff to white over exposure is very harsh.

To get more recovery in Resolve, try also playing with the lift, gain and gamma controls after you play with your camera RAW settings. The new version of Resolve that's coming out will have easier and quicker recovery controls for people who are use to ACR.

These look great! it's nice to see another person shooting commercials with ML RAW. What resolution did you shoot at and what's your workflow?

I'm using a similar one, I just need to throw in an SSD since the 5400 RPM drive is a huge bottle neck. I'm able to review CDNG in Premiere in real time, so it should also work with MLViewer. Keep in mind, it won't open Resolve.

I looked into this because I wanted c-mount lenses for crop mode. The flange distance for c mount lenses are around 17-18mm where as the EOS mount is around 44mm, the only way to make it work is to remove the mirror and do some serious modifications in order to obtain infinity focus, or use an optical adapter. The EOS M might have some hope, you'll have to take a look at the flange distance. Keep in mind there will be some serious vignetting unless if you're using the lens for cropped mode.

Share Your Videos / Re: 5D3 Dual-ISO RAW Video Test #1 (ISO 100/800)
« on: November 25, 2013, 08:54:34 PM »
The footage looks great! I experimented with dual iso video at the end of a commercial shoot with a Dodge Charger driving down some city streets at night. I used 100-6400 ISO just to see what it would look like. Surprisingly we ended up using some of the footage, even though there were some slight issues in some of the highlights.

Just shot some dual iso on my 5dii, and can't get the thing to work - always get a "filename or extension too long" error signal when I drag the dngs. I have cr2hdr with the dcraw and exiftool in the same folder with the dngs.

This error is literally what the error message says, the file extension is too long. Try throwing the folder with your dual iso and cr2hdr tools onto the root of the C drive, it should work from there.

There's information on it in the first post. I just copy all files that come in the zip and paste them in the folder where the dual iso pictures are and drop the images on the exe. If you only have cr2hdr.exe and do not have dcraw or the other associated files, then the process will not work.

What kind of camera are you shooting with and will you be shooting RAW or H.264? The settings will depend on the look you're going for and the gear you have with you, along with the conditions of the room. The question is a little vague and hard to give a direct answer because not everyone has the same setup or is looking to obtain the same look.

The 7D cannot output 3.5K RAW video, it is limited to 2520x1200. While the maximum resolution is 2520x1200, the camera cannot write to the card fast enough to support this resolution for much longer than a few seconds at 24p.

Shoot preparation / Re: Cross-country drive-lapse
« on: October 02, 2013, 08:04:16 PM »
Sounds like a fun project, I'd love to do the same someday when I retire.

1) Figure out the length of the video you'd like and take a rough guess of the length of each trip to get an idea of what shutter you'd like. At 24 fps and playback, 40 hours of driving and a 30 second interval you will end up with a little over 3 minutes, around 10 minutes if you use a 10 second interval.

2/3) I would debate between full pictures or silent DNG pictures. With the silent DNG you should be able to use the traditional intervalometer and have access to all those fun settings. You also don't have to open up the aperture all the way to prevent flickering, you can also stop it down and unscrew the lens a tad so the contacts aren't connecting.

Here are the results of the 1min and 5min card read/write tests carried out on a new KB 64GB CF card. Any thoughts on these numbers (120mb/s sounds fast - but I'm really not sure how to interpret these numbers).

Any comments much appreciated.



You're in playback mode, try running the benchmark in the record mode.

Wow, that's a great way to contribute! (Sarcasm). Please man be polite, we're all just trying to help, there's no need to be an asshole.

Anyway, i just want to ask about the write speed. In the doc here says that the CF controller top writing speed is 80mb/s, but in this image publishied by a1ex in a earlier post tops at 91mb/s.

So my question is, knowing that the top liveview res is 1728x1156, should i get a 1000x CF card? Will the extra transfer speed be worth it?

Thank you in advance :)

I feel that it's too soon to decide on that just yet, it would be better to wait and see what happens when we have the raw_rec module working and have more benchmarks posted. If we can achieve write speeds of over what the card controller is listed as in movie mode then I would highly recommend the 1000x card, especially since we can record up to 2520x1200 in the 1:1 crop mode.

Have you run a benchmark yet to see how your card is performing?

- KomputerBay
- 64 GB
- UDMA 7
- SM2236AC chipset
- 1920x1080 and 1920x1280 is continuous at 23.976, around 1000 frames in 29.97 with global draw, continuous with hacked preview
- May 2013
-Two cards, both SM223AC and both write at around 95 MB/s. I will buy more in the future, but only if they have the SM223AC chipset.

Is the file manager working?

What kind of artifacts are you getting? Zebras?

I noticed the file manager was not working on the August 4th build, but it worked on the August 3rd build.  I'll try reinstalling later today in case if it was an issue on my part.

I'm noticing a grid pattern in my DNGs...  Anybody else noticing this?

Try putting the sharpening to zero, ACR always pushes the sharpness amount to 25.  Are you seeing this pattern when pixel peeping?

You're right about the sensor size and super 16 and 1/1.2" lenses would be perfect. But i don't know, they might not focus properly because of the distance of the mount to the sensor and may need modification, also might be some problems with the mirrior of the camera. It would be nice if someone clarifies this.

That's what I'm worried about, I wouldn't be afraid to mod the camera strictly for this since I would sell I was originally going to sell it for the Blackmagic. A speedbooster might also work if we can adapt one of the current ones to an EF mount.

Yes you are right in your math!! But, if you hit the magnifying glass ONCE, you get into 5X... that FULL 1:1 crop mode? I mean there is NO line skipping? If there is NO line skipping then you are right, but if there is some, then we're talking about a bigger sensor in that crop mode :D.

Downloading the full res video now!!! Simply cannot believe the quality that we are getting.. will try and test myself but got crappy cards.. 166x... :/


Keep in mind that is still H.264, just really high quality H.264. Here's a couple random DNG frames, try to look for any moire or aliasing on the rocks.  You'll have to bring the exposure down a little on some of them since I tried to ETTR, but I didn't know how far I could go since I didn't have the RAW zebras at the time.

I think you have to zoom in 5X and then do the burst.. that's how you get in crop mode if I'm not mistaken..

I wonder what crop factor would that be in the 7D...

The full sensor size is 22.3mm x 14.9 mm and the resolution is 5184 x 3456.  Full crop mode is 2520 x 1200 which would create a sensor size of  10.84mm x 5.17mm, I think.  This would put the 7D as a slightly smaller sensor than the Blackmagic Pocket Camera, it'll be even smaller at 1080p.  Otherwise it should work with Super 16 glass.  This is of course is assuming that my math is correct, someone should probably check it for me.   :)

Edit, it probably won't work with Super 16, forgot about the EF mount that's in the way.

I shot it the same way that I would shoot on the 5D Mark III.  To enable the crop mode you just hit the magnifying glass and viola, you have 1:1 video with no line skipping.  The resolution that was coming out of the camera was 2520x1200 and I assume the frame rate is either 29.97 or 30, we won't be able to have 23.976 until we have FPS override.  I was hitting a consistent 59 frames, it might be more than others because I'm running the Komputerbay 64 GB 1000x card.  In playback I'm hitting almost 92 MB/s and only 58 MB/s in record mode.  Jemabaris, have you tried benchmarking your card to see how it's performing?

I like the performance in crop mode, it is very clean and compares to the 5D Mark III when light properly, the 5D however looks a lot better in crop mode when you start increasing the iso.  I'd be interested in trying some super 16 glass if the crop mode can cover it.

Here's a link to the video file I uploaded to Youtube.
