Thanks walter! That was an AMAZING find!!!!

Nikfreak, you are being so super nice! As soon as I have a free moment I will try to do some testing using an external monitor while shooting "4K" in my mind, using an external monitor should help while shooting with frozen liveview.. but again, I don't trust what my mind thinks

Hey, my little advice: DON't buy the 700D. I know it seems a lot of money, but really save up, ask for loan and get to the 5D3. Think about it: 5D3 raw footage if properly treated in post it's basically good as the alexa!

For best lenses: Helios 58mm f.2 44-2, super takumar 135mm 2.8, nikon ai 28mm f2.0 or if on a budget photax paragon 28mm 2.8

Mike Biondo, it's a bit hard to distinguish between the Alexa and the 5D3 if one can not download the original and enjoy it at the full quality! :)

THAT SAID, I will keep on saying this FOR EVER: If one's does his homework, You can not tell the difference between the Alexa and the 5D3. Only the snobs of will tell you otherwise! ;0)

it's all about the lenses.. And Grading! Really really liked the color grading! Can't beat the 14bit dngs! You can really bring images to life!

Budafilms, I would be really, really curious to see the trailer for your movie shot with the 5D3 that got into the cannes film festival.

What next? A £100 million dollar hollywood movie? That would be almost surreal..

I thought A1ex was german as well! :O :D

so, IMHO, to rotate the gun there are a plethora of ways.. even just securing the gun to an office chair without the back rest and then spin away! or maybe, those fanatic of DIY can buy a rotating support.. it's should be fairly easy: Motor, switches and woods come to mind.
Otherwise I am pretty sure you can BUY a rotating device..

please help me to understand your sarcasm, as I'm not a native speaker ;)

What makes me laugh is, I suspect both you and A1ex have a language in common, but out of kindness, write in english so everyone can understand :D

Hi everyone,

I was fiddling around with the UHD 1:1 setting of the crop_rec module
The data I was recording was 14bit lossless, iso 1600.
It was recording continuously until I pointed the camera at the PC screen and this happened! :D

I still have the file if any of you would like to inspect it.
I am sure it happened because of the high ISO and the sharp change from a dark corner of my room and the PC screen.
I read that 14bit lossless works best at low iso and with not too bright scenes, therefore I believe that was what made magic lantern to do this. I restarted the camera removing the battery and all come back to normal.

When that happens, what button do I press to make it go away without having to restart the camera? :D


Thanks a lot for helping out! :) Just to help clear my mind, the mlv_dump I downloaded from the link you provided, in order to make it work I have to run in using command prompt on windows, correct? (I am using windows 7 pro) Otherwise can I simply drag and drop my files onto it?

Thanks a lot, and I apologize if my question is a repetitive one.

I humbly ask if there is a windows version of mlRawViewer 1.4.3 or if are there any other programs to convert 12 bit and 14lossless mlv files for windows.
I seem to be struggling to find some.

Thanks a lot! :)

What I tried to say with my previous posts and I failed miserably xD, was exactly what dmilligan said: you might be seeing a flat look on your camera screen and you might be seeing a "graded" image on your editing program of choice, but regardless, all the data captured is there for you to play with! I thought that was implied knowledge everyone is aware of. :)

That's why, wicq, I was so puzzled by your ""obsession"" with having a flat look :D but it was my bad of not being able to explain it properly as dmilligan did.

xD Thanks for explaining what I AGAIN was unable to do. :)

I believe that the best and fastest way to work with mlv files is using the mlv fuse system/converting to dngs + resolve

About sonyraw. I haven't had the pleasure to work with any .ari files but .mxf sonyraw files are, like.. 16bit.. it's billions of colours *__*
Latest work I did I was grading TIFF screenshot of .MXF sonyraw files in Lightroom, exporting LUTs from my grading and applying them to the footage in resolve for then fine tuning the camera raw parameters.

It felt like playing with clay working with the sonyraw files from the Axs R5 recorder. :D
Still, to me, magic lantern dngs are up there with the standards used by "the bigs".

Hello, so to close this topic  let me see if I understood correctly. There is no aplication that export direclty the RAW with a Log applied right? I  mean we have to work around  by  importing the already  "graded" exported sequence from MLRAWVIEWER or RAW2CDNG   to  photoshop and apply a flat  profile in order to have the flat look that then you can graded in premier,resolve or speedgrade , right? Im asking because some guy on youtube claims that his footage is exported with a flat look directly from MLRAWVIEWER. I know for a fact that you can export your RAW/MLV files  with a flat  log  but only in MOV prores format.

Why would you make your life so complicated to have a "flat look"? you do not need to have a flat look in order to grade/correct your .dngs! All the info you need it's there, regardless of flat profile OR NOT! :)

If having a "flat profile" it's so vital for you, why do you bother with any of the adobe products in the first place? Edit in resolve and your problem are all solved! :) Only make sure to export 16bit maximised .dngs using one of the many converters that a lot of great people have created, or even quicker, learn to work with .mlv using the mlv FUSE.

In davinci resolve, it's native camera raw plug-in, in the color page, allows you to choose between: 3 different color spaces and 5 different gamma ranges! :)

want this Log so much? Abandon magic lantern and switch to Sony. :D

If working with log footage it's so vital for you, unfortunately you are stuck with exporting .MOV files with a log profile applied to them. Otherwise, seriously, it's counterproductive to import your sequences in adobe camera raw, "flatten them" and export them again. :)

Sorry, but I don't understand.. On my end the footage you uploaded looks fine: As a normal linear .dng would look once extracted from the raw files.

Magic Lantern raw files are not supposed to look flat. Because they are Linear .dngs.

mlrawviewer gives you the option to export your raw files or mlv files either in a LINEAR sequence of .dngs OR, an .MOV file with a log curve applied to it (I presume)

This Is a Lightweight jpeg processed through Lightrom from the raw file you provided No color correction / grading applied.

This is another lightweight jpeg generated from the same file BUT trying to give it a "flat" look

This is the same image as above BUT with me fucking about in lightroom in order to give it some sort of "look"

This two files instead, are screengrab taken from 2 .MOV files that I have rendered from your raw file straight to .MOV applying a a log curve (Hope that's the right term)



I don't see nothing wrong with your files, the vignetting it's most probably caused by the lens.

Maybe this articles will help you a bit? :)

Because, if you want "raw with log" Start saving up and get yourself an Arri, Red or Sony F55 / 65 :D

hope this help

Thanks Midphase to prove my point.

On I boldly state this: "If you do your homework, nobody will be able to tell the difference between magic lantern and an Alexa" And, of course, I got a BARRAGE of abuse. xD

That said, if I had the choice, I would go for an alexa. No brainer. Why? to put it simple, EVERYTHING else. the 5D3 doesn't have 4 SDI, It's not heavy enough, doesn't have a number of screw holes to securely tight it to whatever support, (I was never a fan of LOG footage), etc. etc.

Nice shots, nice grading (Even i guess you used once again the famous and boring Osiris M31 LUT)

Thank you! I was gonna ask what is the name of that LUT that I keep on seeing on almost every magic lantern video I stumble across :D
