You can't run the firmware update with a third party battery which not fools the camera...

Really? i've been using numerous different brands for the EL-P6 battery and i've never experienced any trouble what so ever.
Allthough the Canon's tend to keep their charge a bit better. I can update with any battery.

Especially if you can't bother reading the manual, i'd say.


Mine works like a charm. But i can read.

Hardware and Accessories / Re: Dual Monitor

there are monitors with HDMI out / SDI out. Works like a dream. I use 5.6 inch TV logic VFM-056 WP  monitor and use an extra 17 inch monitor for clients/ director.

The tvlogic monitor is good, but quite expensive (about 1100 euro's, but it's american so it will probably be 1000 dollars)
The good thing is that it can get HDMI in and cross SDI out, that i use the most since all professional 17 inch monitors to my knowledge use SDI in. (i use an BT-LH1760 from panasonic for those occasions. Works great. Keeps the director/client on some distance of the cameraman/dop.)

For a second setup I have an Marshall V-LCD50-HDMI. Very nice. Not so expensive (500 euro's) and all the bells and whistles. Only HDMI in, so only a single monitor.

This is what canon has to say about this.

Haven't found out the temperature when the overheating icon will appear, never saw that thing in the first place to be honest.

Just tested the camera in the morning.

Startup with magic lantern, no recording, no raw:
Global draw on, zebra's on, histogram on RGB.
5d3 was on a rig, so no heat from my hands/body
shot with external monitor.
Room temperature was 20 °C
All temperatures came from magic lantern. i don't have an infrared meter.

Startup:    19 °C   (a1ex, difference of 1 °C with room temperature)
after 20 seconds  24 °C
1 minute:  29 °C
2 minutes: 33 °C
4 minutes: 36 °C
8 minutes: 47 °C
And it kept there for 30 minutes, quit test after that.

let it cool down a bit and went recording continuous

Recording H264 codec:
startup    36 °C
1 minute  43 °C
2 minutes 47 °C
4 minutes 49 °C
8 minutes 49 °C
quite stable

Raw 1080X1920 (single take)
startup: 34 °C
right after i put on raw in the menu: 42°C
10 seconds 44 °C
20 seconds 47 °C
30 seconds 47 °C
40 seconds 47 °C
1 minute: 47 °C
2 minutes: 48 °C
3 minutes: 55 °C (orange)
4 minutes: 55 °C
5 minutes: 58 °C
6 minutes: 58 °C
6.30 min : 60 °C (red)
7 minutes: 62 °C
8 minutes 60 °C
9 minutes 59 °C
10 minutes: 59 °C
It kept stable from 6.30 minutes, 60/59 constant.

checked if there was a difference in heat with higlights or darks but no difference.  (this included zebra striping galore)

Raw without monitor:

startup: 33 °C
right after i put on raw in the menu: 33°C
10 seconds 40 °C
20 seconds 40 °C
30 seconds 40 °C
40 seconds 40 °C
1 minute: 43 °C
2 minutes: 45 °C
3 minutes: 48 °C
3.30 min : 54 °C   (orange, went straight up from 48 to 54)
4 minutes: 54 °C
5 minutes: 56 °C
6 minutes: 56 °C
7 minutes: 59 °C
8 minutes 62 °C  (red)
9 minutes 69 °C
10 minutes 70 °C
kept stable 70 °C after that.

After this i did another test with the monitor again, but that gave quite similar results as the earlier test.

tried putting in the monitor after various minutes shooting without, cooled down a bit (5 °C)
tried all tests again with alot of different shots (starting, stopping) but didn't really affect the heat.

it seems that the monitor "cools" it for about 8/10 °C

shooting indoors at 22 till 25 celcius (that was a private pool)
outdoors at 8 celcius,   Both about the same.  Camera between 60/70 degrees celcius.

Still curious about other camera's temperature.
Just wondering because it's bright red all the time. :)

Found out that this is the problem!
Raw Video / raw2dng does not convert long takes
December 15, 2013, 12:57:48 PM
Hi all!

Yesterday i've been out shooting with a new production company.
The director was stressing out over the day and kept doing extremely long takes, even after telling multiple times that I didn't want to stress out the camera.

He didn't listen, and kept telling the actors that they should "keep going!!".
So i've been converting a lot now and Raw files that are rather lengthy in take (1.5 to 3 minutes) are not converted by raw2DNG.
I'm not a fan of long takes, but sometimes it needs to be done, or you have a director that doesn't listen to the dop  ;D

Anyhow, am i doing anything wrong or does raw2dng not support a certain length?

Raw2dng version: 0.13     (MAC)
ML version:  21 august     

Shot on a 5D3 
Resolution 1920/1080

Anyhow, any help on getting the shots is greatly appreciated.
And the stuff that comes out if it works, gotta love it!
never realized that.. will try this weekend...

I thought the 5D3 build was buggy with HDMi out running?

Don't have an answer to your question, but can I ask you one... are you getting continous recording even with monitor attached?

yes. no problem at all.
I have something that doesn't bother me that much, but i thought you guys would want to know;

As soon as i turn on "Raw recording" in the ML menu my "zebra" overlay becomes much smaller on my HDMI out..
I'm not really clear I guess so here is the photo:

It's a 5dmk3 running with the nightly build from 2013-07-12

this is regular (internal display)     :
this is with HDMI (external)           : 

Am i doing something wrong?
Oh and thank you guys for doing an amazing job! you guys are awesome.
