Archived porting threads / Re: Magic Lantern for 7D alpha 2

I tried a quick and dirty crop mode test today, I'm impressed with what I see so far and will experiment a little more with it.

Nothing big. Just minor fix and typo.

Also, ETTR for anyone interested:

Thanks!  RGB Zebras work now, I wish I would have waited for I went out to test RAW in crop mode.

Try formatting the card on the computer and make sure it is exfat.

Hardware and Accessories / Re: NEW KomputerBay *1050x* 128 GB Card
« on: August 02, 2013, 11:36:26 PM »
I would send them back and get a few of the 64 gb cards that have the SM2236AC chipset.  You'll find out if it has this chipset or not when running a benchmark, the chipset is displayed.  I can run around 30 seconds before dropping frames with 1080p @ 29.97fps with global draw on and continuous with the hacked preview when using these cards.  1080p @ 23.976 is continuous along with 2K video at the same framerate.

I plan on sticking with these cards until someone releases a 128 gb that is reliable for 1080p @ 29.97 fps.

Modules Development / Re: Magic Lantern (RAW) Video format v2.0

Just installed it, and I definitely notice the write speed is slower on the 5D3 with 64GB KomputerBay 1000x cards.  Card was getting 94.6/MBs previously and now only gets around 84.2/MBs which is on the edge of 4512 expected and continuous.

I'm on a mac, what can I use to convert and check the files?


My results are almost identical with the 64 GB KomputerBay card.

Help me, I need a little tutorial to install this update. thank you guys for helping me.

Thank you


Keep an eye out on the nightly builds and follow the instructions for installing the RAW video builds.  If you have difficulty doing so, then it would be probably be best to wait for an official release.

Everything goes into the 'modules' folder, except for the autoexecbin which goes to the root folder of the card, right?

Also, when this newest build is on my card, there is a possibility to shoot normal video(without the double iso thing), right?

Sounds right for the file locations.  I believe H.264 video shouldn't be changed and you should be able to disable the module, but there's only one way to find out.  I would experiment with it tonight, but I don't dare try something this new the day before a big shoot.

Does it seem even remotely possible that this type of functionality could later be accessed for stills in APS-C lines that share a cut down version of the same sensor (if not the exact same sensor) as the 7D such as T2i and 60D?

Probably not; the 5D Mark III has an 8 channel readout along with the 7D, the others have a 4 channel readout from the sensor. 

Isn't there any CF card can record 1920*1080 30fps ???

It must be as fast as 107MB/s write speed. :D

KomputerBay 64 gig 1000x SM2236AC

Around 950 frames with 1920x1080 @ 30 fps, continuous with hacked preview.  This is with the June 28th build, I'm very impressed.  On the builds from earlier this month I would only see around 300-500 frames and around 1000 with the hacked preview.  The card itself has a 95 MB/s write and 120 MB/s read speed.

Great job, I was able to hit 2560x1024 for over 1000 frames and 2880x1154 for around 130 frames.  After a little bit I started getting the "nothing saved, card maybe full" error.

Feature Requests / Re: Focus Peaking while recording RAW

What camera are you using?  With the Mark III and a 64 gig Komputerbay card you should be able to use global draw at 1920x1080.  Another method is to crank up the sharpness on your picture style, it works pretty well.

I agree with the above.  The closest you can get to avoiding the exposure change is by zooming out all the way and setting your aperture to F5.6 or slower, but even then I still notice some exposure changes.

Hey Noisyboy, is it possible to make the .RAW available, or to run raw2dng and put one of the DNG frames online?  It looks like the magenta issue might be related to moire.  I'm always tweaking the debayer so it would help to have a RAW/DNG to take a look at.

John, great work!  Here's a DNG that had some magenta in the highlights on my end, hope this helps.

Raw Video / Re: Uncompressed 14-bit RAW video testing - 5D Mark III
« on: June 08, 2013, 01:44:55 AM »
I shot some footage that looks like it's sped up. It gives the impression that it was recorded in another, lower frame rate than 25, when looking at it after it's been post-processed. I did not have FPS override to ON in magic lantern, could this have affected it? Anyone else experienced this problem?

I used the june 3rd-version. Camera settings i Canons menu set to PAL and video set to 1080p 25fps ALL-I.

What's your workflow, are you using After Effects?  When importing an image sequence in After Effects you need to set the frame rate the composition and the image sequence, otherwise AE might interpret it as the wrong framerate which would screw up the motion.  It would be better to ask this question in the post-processing forum.

Raw Video / Re: Recording uncompressed JPGs?
« on: June 03, 2013, 01:47:35 AM »
Short answer, no.  First off, JPEG is lossy, meaning there isn't a true uncompressed JPG.  Are you talking about Motion JPG or getting JPG images that work similarly to the ones taken in photo mode?  There have been a lot of different threads that have explored alternatives to H.264 and RAW, currently what appears to be the most promising is the 10 or 12 bit RAW possibility that is being discussed.  It would allow for greater frame rates and resolution, but not "a lot more."

General Help Q&A / Re: Video ISO capabilities
« on: May 31, 2013, 07:38:27 PM »
The still images won't change in quality, they already have full RAW from the sensor.  The only improvement would be the use of a RAW histogram, but that falls on the ability of the operator.  The only possible improvements would be the added iso values to a few of the cameras and additional exposures for bracketing.

General Help Q&A / Re: Raw MK2 vs. MK3
« on: May 31, 2013, 07:36:06 PM »
All the major blogs have answered this already, most of them obtain their information from this forum.  The Mark 3 does not have line skipping and can support full 1080P on certain memory cards, the Mark 2 and 60D are line skippers and it shows during RAW video.  The 5D Mark 2 cannot write as fast as the Mark 3, it tops out at around 55-65 megabytes per second, around 83 is needed for 1080p.  The 60D tops out at around 20 megabytes per second.  Currently there are builds that work for the Mark 2 and 60D, but like everything else, they are still in the early alpha stage.

As for the difference between the Mark 3 and the BMCC, you can decided for yourself.
