HDR video in still type dual-ISO?
« on: August 21, 2019, 01:17:31 PM »
Hello.

HDR video feature switches ISO between frames, but Dual-ISO feature reads the sensor at varied ISO at once.
If video could be recorded in dualiso as it is in stills it could solve the frame rate/ghosting issue. Is it possible?

I guess someone must have thought of this before but a few quick searches revealed nothing.

Well what you´re asking is already implemented. What camera and build?

Well, Dual-ISO video not available in nightly builds for 5D2 (which he owns), 50D and 7D. Don't know status about this feature in Reddeercity's builds.

Right now in rdc's builds the custom experimental  dual-iso module someone whipped up for the 5d2 years ago gices an "OldApi" error.

Before all the crop-rec stuff happened I was able to get 12/10 bit dual iso running off of nightly builds.

I just update/ported dual-iso video to 4k5d2 crop_rec branch , just testing right now --  5xZoom & 3x3 (FHD) work @ 10bit
check in MLV App , but I had to force dual iso process as it was not detected right away . I'll post a build shortly in
 "3K/UHD 5D2 Raw development and Other Digic IV Cams" thread

If so, the metadata for dual iso detection is missing/wrong in the MLV file. Use dualMode and blockType in mlv_diso_hdr_t (DISO structure).

I've actually upgraded my collection with a 5d3 on 1.2.3 firmware, if that's what you meant by build. But you're right, I should have specified.

I've been playing around with crop_rec module.
I am just a user with no knowledge of the inner workings of the camera. I can read some code but that's about it.
Even looking for specific modules is a pain and I need to rely on google to find an article with a link to a module. took me ages to find crop_rec, and a youtube walkthrough to produce a failed 4k recording. I might not be technically savvy enough to use it right.
My point is I'm fairly confused at this point.

I had suspicions that this could have been done already as I think I saw a grid of dual-iso lines at the beginning of my recordings... but nothing else. I've also been using both cameras sporadically and that could have been an issue. Anyway, if it is implemented I would appreciate a link to some documentation; a user guide, something to help me make sense of when and how this is activated, how it works, how I can or should manage it in post etc.
