tried diskutil info / | grep "Block Size"

Block Size is identical. This is not the issue....
Alas- That was a mountian lion permissions error. Disregard. Still not working with EOScard / MacBoot with 1050x card.
Think I'm getting closer to finding out the issue. It has something to do with permissions.

First, I tried changing the partition size to something the ML can work with.

now I'm getting this from MacBoot:

making DLSR-bootable - format=2
making FAT32 DSLR-bootable
Command 'printf "EOS_DEVELOP" | dd bs=1 count=11 seek=0x47 conv=notrunc of=/dev/disk4s1' = '!Error

dd: /dev/disk4s1: Permission denied'
   return code was 1


Update firmware / install won't work with these big cards. You have to copy the install from another card then boot flag the KB card.

Also, many people have had success on both the 50D and MKII using the above method. I think something's up with the memory allocation. Hopefully someone can chime in.
Cool. Let's hope we don't have to send our cards back. I'm still coming up empty on unified builds for the 50D.

Update firmware, installing ML, will never work with anything over 64GB  I'm told. So rather than attempting that, we both should focus on why these cards aren't allowing themselves to be boot flagged.
Just tried this process and it didn't work. Not booting from KB card. Can I manually add "EOS_DEVELOP" and "BOOTDISK" partitions? Are they hidden like EFI?

Buy the cheapest CF card you can find. Speed and capacity is irrelevant as you're only installing from it. You should be able to pick one up on ebay for under 5$ or borrow one from somewhere. You only need to to install once to set the bootflag. Then you can use your KB card.

Thanks for responding.

I have a few CF cards all with proper ML installations.

So my procedure would be:

1. Install Fresh ML on another CF card.
2. Eject Card
3. Plug into computer card reader and copy files to PC.
4. Eject other card, plug in KB card, copy files into root directory.
5. Make card active via EOScard / MacBoot.
6. Eject Card - replace CF inside camera.
7. Turn on and *hopefully* ML loads

Does this sound right?
I'm so bummed I can't install ML on this card because of the 64GB+ limitation.

Anyone have any advice for 50D and MKII users? We don't have an SD slot to run / install ML from...

What anamorphic lens is that DJD? It makes a lot of sense to go this squeezed route.

I'll update this post in a few hours as tech support will also be calling those who emailed and contacted them so we can isolate the problem.

Interesting, Thanks Ted. You saved me a call.

Why would you install ML on a CF card?

Because the 50D only has a CF slot.

Unlock the boot loader with a card below 64gb. Then install ML on the card. Once done make the card bootable with eos card or Mac boot.

Unlock the boot loader? Is this a ML preference? How are other people using ML with 128 GB cards? I've read posts on different forums where people use this card with the 5DMKIII.

I understand the limitation and have read the wiki. What isn't clear is the process.

1. Copy previous successful install from other CompactFlash Card onto new card.

2. Use application to make card bootable (either EOScard or MacBoot).

3. Install card and hopefully boot in ML.

This process doesn't work for me so my other process is to try a fresh install. I get the error above.
Hey all,

I've tried MacBoot on a 10.7.5 and a 10.8.4 machine and still am getting the "firmware not found" error.
Then I downloaded EOScard on a PC running windows XP. Still no luck. Can't get the thing to boot inside my 50D.

Anyone have a solutions?

The card mounts on all the computers and BlackMagic Speed Test shows its fast.

Hey folks! Tested the 2K RAW in 5X mode and I'm getting over 5,000 frames

What specific resolution did you get and what MB/s?

My KomputerBay at 1050x 128GB is coming Monday. Can't wait to see if I can break the 81 MB/s speed barrier.

I honestly dislike that rawdng outputting a file. Doesn't it output a 422 file and not a 4444 file?

Just wanting to share a video shot with the 50D

I have that same glitch with a single frame being darker. Your workflow seems longer than mine though.

RAW > Import with Ginger HDR into AE > Grade > Render out ProRes 4444 to FCP 7.03.

Also, noob question- how do I turn off autoexposure? When I lock ISO, shutter, WB it still gains up and down depending on brightness.

Anyone have a download link mirror to the current build?
Bitbucket appears to be down.

Quote from: araucaria on June 24, 2013, 11:58:50 PMdepth of field will be the same as on a 10mm lens, so no shallow depth of field.

Oy- that's rough.

The Canon EF-S 10mm - 22mm F/3.5 - 4.5 USM Lens is 600 bucks used.

So everything would be in focus, with no DoF, unless you shot macro ;)

Question: since 5x zoom multiplies field of view by 5x times what lens mm on a crop sensor would I need to achieve 50mm? Something like fisheye?

If you're on a mac just download blackmagic's speed test (free). It writes a 5GB file to the card and tells you how many FPS you can expect. They may even have it for PC.

I'm confused. Did you get FCP-X to see the proxy file for XML export?

I'm really interested in this exact workflow except for FCP 7.0.3.

Can you elaborate?

1. A non-cumbersome way of loading video modules.
2. 2353x1568 @ 23.98 FPS
3. 12-bit HDMI out ;)

so I used RAWanizer to convert to CineformRAW 444 (about 10 minutes for 21GB of footage)

Can you post your computer specs Julian. Mac or PC/Hackintosh?
