Hi there,
I recently shot a report for a local TV station about a concert on the 1st of May that I would like to share with you. It was shot using ML's custom H264.ini settings.


Shoot Preparation / Auto-load h264.ini

Is there a way to load custom h264.ini settings directly on camera start for the 5D3? Maybe this topic has already been dealt with but I was not able to find any relevant information in a search. Thank you very much!
Apparently I am not the only one who has stuck / hot pixels at higher ISO settings (on 5D3). This might be the result of higher noise clusters from the sensor that are interpreted as *fixed bright pixels* due to the original-sensor-resolution-to-1080p binning (or similar) process inside the camera.

Especially noticeable and annoying when filming in a dark environment (bright pixels spots on otherwise near-to-black background), it would be highly beneficial if the developers could provide a similar feature to Black Shading Calibration

As I am not a coder, I have no idea whether that is possible to implenet on a technical level, but it would make post work so much easier, especially when the footage is behind handed to someone else for further processing / editing / post.

Thank you and have a beautiful day!
The Magic Lantern raw recording workflow has openend a whole new world for me and it is spectacular to be able to work at such a high level of image quality for filming.

I have spent quite some time and money to find the right cards and workflow to record 1080p without dropouts and more or less process the clips in a reasonable amount of time.

Last week, I went to a bar to shoot a concert of a friend of mine and was faced with a rather dark environment, which forced me to shoot at rather high ISO settings on my 5D3 (ISO1600 - ISO 2000). That was the first time that I realized a number of light grey pixels that appear in dark areas, and I have been testing the camera for this annoyance ever since. It seems that those grey pixels appear at ISOs above 800, taking the long way (ACR) to process the DNGs sometimes takes care of some of them, but not of all and not every time.

Do other users also experience these issues? Any suggestions to get rid of them?

Thank you very much,
