Raw Video / Re: Is 5d MKIII Raw stable enough for professional use?
« on: March 23, 2016, 08:52:02 PM »
Yes I'm using the latter, the fastest one! Thanks again for your kind words on my film :) It's not my first time using it mind although I've only done a couple of small jobs with it and would like to either invest more into it (more cards) or move up a bit. Problem is when people are hiring me trying to explain I have a hacked camera that their editor doesn't understand... Or if they know of it their scared it's not reliable which is my fear right now! I just shot a a series of hotel videos for a chain and during the course of a week and a half I gradually convinced my director how awesome and reliable it was so he let me use it on some hero shots, sunsets and cropped zoom shots! Pretty awesome being able to zoom 3x into the sunset and film it in raw! If I can get it running 100% stable I might rig it up more instead and just advertise a 14bit raw 4:4:4 camera not saying what it is :P

I'm reading MLV is unfortunately causing lots of people the dodgy frames so fingers crossed the MLV lite comes out with sound...

Thanks for the kind words Axelcine! Glad you liked the film and yeh, I was one man with my camera ringside looking like a photographer, didnt get much respect and was constantly being dragged out of the way! So not an easy place to get the shots you want!

Unfortunately its not just pink frames but an entire shot as well as one that was just jumping all over, i'll upload it now so you guys can see! I'm debating if I should get the mini ursa 4.6k actually, well in fact I've decided on it but the ordering time is going to take so long that I'm seeing how viable this is :)

Honestly having fix black level on was an accident! Maybe thats a possible culprit? The card is a sandisk  64 gb extreme pro, 160 mbs.

no focus peaking, Sandisk extreme pro 64 gb.

Nightly 2016.Jan14 5d3113

Card was formatted to exFat on my pc.

Actually, Global Draw was Off
Use Srm Job Memory On
Extra Hacks: On
Fix Black Level: On

Was recording sound using mlvsound also.

File_man ok
MLV_play OK

One possibility, I was starting and stopping recording pretty frequently. Would that be known to cause it? Cause I had so much to record I was quickly recording a few seconds then deleting it if it wasnt good before recording the next few.

Thanks Axelcine that's all I wanted to know, so some of you are having streamlined experiences so it's my setup!

I shot this video just on the weekend:

MLV Raw, 113, overlays on. Out of about 240 shots, 1 had pink lines going through it, one looked like it was being sliced by a knife and actually another had a missing frame. Not bad but not good enough for stuff you cant re-shoot!

So it is MLV Raw that isn't so stable? Or just when you use it with overlays from what some reports were saying?

It's not about who's failure it is, what I'm asking is will the raw hack consistantly be stable with any certain settings? From further reading I see using overlays tends to cause the odd pink frame but the odd frame you cant afford sometimes.

So is there a reliable way to use the raw feature for things such as weddings and interviews that you know isnt gonna glitch out when you get it on the editing table?

The other day out of about 200 shots, 2 of them were dodgy, one had pink lines, another looked like it had turned into a jig saw... wierd! Anyway my point is, is there some build that is 99.9% stable and wont give you these fucked up shots, after you have shot them? Or is it unfortunately only good for stuff you can re-shoot.

p.s I should add, this is a cinematic montage, edited and graded. Not just shots!


Hope you like :)

So as the topic title said, one of my shots out over over 100 had purple/pink lines all along the bottom of the frame. No settings changed so was pretty random. Anyone know of this?

Just as the topic title says. Did the bitrate increase not do anything? I thought it was a super feature!

General Help Q&A / Re: Keep recording after Rack Focus Completes?
« on: February 15, 2016, 06:34:59 PM »
Well I figured it out! The menu instructions are wrong, you have to press record and then press ok to focus rack. Then it doesnt stop recording. Woo hoo!

I'm bumping this post because I'm having the same problem. Many people have posted but no replies?  :-\ Is it an impossible feature?

So as the title says, I love the auto focus racking for jib shots etc but the fact it stops recording right after makes it unusable often. I don't actually get what the point of that is! So my question is! Is it possible to have the camera automatically focus rack and then not stop recording.

Thankyou :)

5d mk iii raw test shot. Just a top down shot then a cropped zoomed in shot.

Thankyou very much, very nice link :)

btw, I just tested out the cropped mode with my macro lense if anyone is interested.

SORRY, removed that link as I just realized the MLVeiwer to slog2 pro-res then grading in premier looks like dog shit compared to the DNG files opened in after effects. Re-making and will post soon!

I'm just presuming as on certain cams such as the a7 range, when you put it in crop mode the rolling shutter is reduced. So you think this doesnt happen here? may have to test it!

So sorry to dumb it down but im not quite sure I got an answer there or I'm too stupid to understand lol!

So just to clarify 2 questions, firstly, if you zoom in and shoot cropped 1080p, is that gonna mean no anti aliasing and less/no rolling shutter?
2: When shooting regular raw 1080p and/or you lower the resolution to use less of the sensor, are you still getting the above benefits?

Thankyou :) P.s I just shot a few macro shots of some watches if anyones interested.Waiting for them to encode!

I just meant, is it the same, no line skipping etc if you crop to a smaller resolution? Bit strange though they would make it line skipping only for 1080p!

Thankyou very much for your reply! So it sounds like you're saying, apart from reduced FOV, the quality of crop mode should be better? Does this apply to reduced resolution crops also?

I'd just like to better understand the zoomed in, extra high resolution shooting capabilities of the camera. Is it a poorer quality digital zoom? Is your sensor turning into a super 35 cropped sensor like the a7s can do? Whats happening here?

Thankyou :)
