Camera-specific Development / Canon EOS M6 Mark II
« on: September 17, 2019, 02:27:28 PM »
And now for something completely different

If you read the specs on the new M6 mk2, you might have noticed it does not shoot 24p, only 60p & 120p.

Its one of those situations where you want to hack it even before it hits the market! Is sooo bad of Canon.

And now we can resume our regular programming.

General Help Q&A / Auto Exposure Parameters
« on: July 21, 2015, 06:42:24 AM »
I am trying to test Auto Exposure for 70D alpha releases.

I started off trying to test Manual mode: ISO auto, and range 100-400.  I got the ISO range to not exceed the range, but I am confused about if it is working correctly???
Is there a guide or tutorial that walks me through each parameter???

I keep having to consider Tv + Av, as well as EC.
I would like to be able to turn these off one by one, and test each curve by itself against EC initially.  Can this be done ???

Its easier to test if I only verify one item at a time,
then add them back in to test as pairs: ISO+TV,  ISO+AV, then TV+AV,
Then test all three ISO+Tv+Av to verify they always fall within EC range.

Thought this was a good line of thought to discuss, as it may be useful for focusing ML design considerations as well.

One can use DSLR Controller App ($8 USD), and an OTG cable, on any supported Canon Camera (i.e. 600D with a $40USD wireless router, and view a 1080p image on their smart phone.  This is not revolutionary, but if you log in to a wireless network, then things get interesting because you can put a chromecast stick on an HDMI port, then send or screen cast a clean 1080p out signal to your HDMI monitor.

Perhaps you want to get a Hauppage HD PVR2 for less than $200 and record clean 1080p MP4 video to a laptop as well!.
Actually very cheap laptops could be used here, basically HDMI with 4G of memory.

What's beautiful here is that the HDMI outs on your Camera are avoided, so you still have the Liveview screen, and the output is not compressed 1200x800 like streaming from the Canon HDMI ports. 

Some might argue why not use EOS utility via usb cable and record video to your laptop.  The big benefit is the wireless placing of the camera for streaming or on a jib/slider.  This to me is much more set friendly, which is more common for streaming.   You may not need the HD PVR2 if you just want a monitor but what the hey, recording to disk on your laptop while viewing on Liveview LCD, Phone, and 27" HDMI  monitor is not bad at all.

This kind of eliminates the need to add clean 1080p outputs features to slower cameras via ML.  But if DSLR controller could run with ML raw video on your camera then this takes it all to a new level.  Anyways I think this is a useful discussion and would like to know if there are even better wireless uncompressed 1080p video solutions out there that would work on cameras with slower card writer speeds (i.e. 600D and above rebels, 70D, 6D, etc.).

Hardware and Accessories / APS-C glass that works on FF raw crop mode
« on: November 01, 2014, 08:53:19 PM »
There has been some dicussion on full frame crop mode, but its never quite clear what common glass works on which FF.

I have read that Philip bloom notes that Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 works at 16mm on 5DMIII, even without crop.  I have also read that in 3X crop mode it works full range 11-16mm.

I am just wondering about some other great aps-c glass.  Have any folks checked these on FF (5DII/III,6D)

- canon 10-24
- canon 18-55 f2.8
- Sigma 18-35 f1.8
- Sigma 55-150 f2.8
- canon 55-250 f4-5.6
