5d mark iii filming 4k lossless compression
« on: April 03, 2017, 01:27:26 PM »
Hey guys,
I have looked everywhere and cannot find any answers :-)

With the newest firmware. I installed it and am wondering if it allows to shoot in 4k with compression?

Currently, I get no image when shooting crop sensored any higher than 1920.

Can you film 4k without the need to shoot RAW?

And even with RAW I cannot shoot higher than 1920. I get colored splotches with no image.
Any ideas?

And from what I can gather, there is no preview for anything higher than 1920. But is there going to be preview for something like 4k without RAW?

Apologizes if this is simple questions.
Many thanks :)

You didn't look hard enough.

You can't shoot more than a few frames in 4K with an experimental build.

Don't say I didn't look hard, because I did! I dont think you understand what I am asking.

I installed the new firmware. And have found that it can shoot higher than Full HD. Except that is not working for me, and I am getting no image. Which makes we wonder if it can only be filmed with RAW and its preview module.

Maybe mines buggy.. At this stage I cannot shoot higher than Full HD, and whether its possible with h.264. (Which I heard it was).

I think I just need to be patience and wait for the next build. :-)
