Corrupted frames is not good   ???
Made a new crop_rec module where the max vertical resolution is lowered by 16 pixels. (So 16 lines less to read out by the sensor)

5496/3x1944 @ 24 fps
5496/3x1856 @ 25 fps

I expect this should prevent corrupted frames. Could be that it's still a little too much.
If you still experience corrupted frames, let me know, then I make a crop_rec build with the vertical resolution slightly more lower till no more frames are corrupted.

The crop_rec.mo file can be downloaded here from my google drive. you can replace this crop_rec.mo file with the crop_rec.mo file on you sd card (location on SD card:  ML/MODULES/ )

Looks like it fixed the issue. I was able to record this ~1 minute example at 5496/3x1944 @ 24 FPS : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePmpH5QNuGU
Thank you! I'm very happy, going to post more tests with steadicam soon.
By the way, do you have a repository at GitHub or other Git hosting where it's possible to see the edits you made to the source code?

UPD: Another quick test, now with steadicam: https://youtu.be/Lrc_npKrWaQ

Good to hear it’s working without corrupted frames  :)
I don’t have the source online.
But I could upload it to my google drive.
It’s mostly the crop_rec module where changes are made.

The steadycam footage looks good on youtube in 4k  8)

Is the steadycam a real steadycam or a stabilized lens? Looks amazing, by the way!

P.S.: I can buy a 6D with 190.000 actuations for €180 euros. I know the MTBF is 150.000. What do you think about this? Should I go for it? Right now I have the EF 35mm f/2 (the non stabilized version).

Thanks! It's a real steadycam, the model is Glidecam HD-2000, I'm not very good at it yet, just started practicing. The lens is Helios 40-2-C 85mm (dumb metal+glass, no electronics). The lens combined with 6D and this steadycam make the whole setup a heavy thing, but I like it! :)

Probably, it can be a good setup for recording some static shots and maybe even some scenes with slow careful panning without stabilization (the shake is less noticeable on 35mm than on 85mm, but you have to try it yourself to check if you can hold it steady in your hands). What's about shutter live span – honestly, I don't even know how to estimate it, I bought mine 6D with ~23k shutter count so I'm not worrying about it at all. The 190k shutter count can turn out to be a lottery and maybe it's not that important for video, however, I'm not sure that 6D is the best option for RAW videos at its own.

like 5k anamorphic on the eos M? there is a real time preview?

No realtime correct framing liveview.
There is realtime liveview, but it is squeezed and zoomed in.
So to check framing, you need ML preview (the preview with slow refresh rate)

For those interested:
Posted some comparison shots 6D to R5 and posted them in the R5 topic.

Hi,

is there a chance to make full frame RAW more than 1824x1026? Anything around 2.5 or 3K?

I was wondering where is the ettr module in this version

where can we find it on the site to install it?

Any idea what is causing flickering effect in some of my videos? Same effect during camera preview - 1X1 pixel binning 3072x1152@25fps[magiclantern-Nightly.2020Jul16.6D116] 7 out of 37 videos have this flickering effect going on.

The build is based on the same branch as the ML build on the download page on magiclantern.fm -> experiments -> 4K raw video recording; lossless compression

https://builds.magiclantern.fm/jenkins/job/crop_rec_4k/80/artifact/platform/6D.116/magiclantern-crop_rec_4k.2018Jul22.6D116.zip

That build contains a ettr module, see folder 'ML/modules/ettr.mo', you can copy the ettr.mo file to the build on your card in the same folder as the other modules, should work.

Haven't used the ettr module myself, so not sure how good it works, I'm using raw histogram and adjust exposure to that.

Any idea why the flickering keeps happening during video in 1:1 5x zoom crop mode?

Nope. Hardware limit.

Hi, this might be an off-topic question?
You can ask in General Help Q&A section.

Anyway, UHS-I SD card with W90 (capable of 90 MB/s write speed) should work with 240 MHz OC. Feel free to start a topic and ask about a certain SD card before buying it.

We should create a list of verified SD cards too.

How do you process MLV clips, what is your workflow?

I think you are mixing up W90 and V90.

Ah, yes, sorry. It's W90.
Will edit the posts with W90 instead of V90.
