How can I specify my own RAW resolution other than the prefixed ones?

I would like to try out some for my Iscorama 1.5x Anamorphic´s.

Why don't you try something like 1280x1080? Should give you 1920x1080... or 1440x1080 for a 2:1 ratio at 2160x1080 unsqueezed?

Another 5D2 test.
13 may ML build with RAW module built by coutts ;
1280x720 ; 29,97 fps recorded ; 24 fps playback.
Transcend 600x CF.
No magenta blocks, only a few dropped frames.
Thanks to all devs.
Youtube version has less details and sharpness than uploaded footage.

Isn't there a 19th May build around? I'm a little bit addicted to those builds lately. ^^
My last build is from the 17th May.

New video test shots.
Canon 5d Mark 2
Tokina 16-28mm, Sigma 70-200mm, Canon 24-105mm
Magic Lantern Build 16th may

Severail shots @1080p @960p @900p @840p
CF : Transcend 32Gb 1000x
Write 80-85mb/s and read 120-130mb/s but only 65mb/s in LV for now.

Hey guys,

this might be a stupid question, but which CANON firmware should I use on my MKII for this miraculous version of ML?

Thanks for your help!

For 5D MkII use the latest firmware 2.1.2. See also http://www.magiclantern.fm/download

The build from 2013/05/19 for 5D2
a75c4a74d4b9

- I got some more frames vs previous build



@andyshon
beautiful shot and I love the pattern and the sound.

@mvejerslev
the colour is something like ... I'm watching a modern cinemascope film, just cool

@ted ramasola
the pink in magnify is nasty. I've tried to do reverse engineering since 2 days but I still don't know where the bug comes from.

@a.d.: thanx!

In HaCk3D mode, which should improve the transfer rate, the actual rate decreases.
Without this HaCk3D mode the transfer seems to be the same as in the May 17th build.

Over 600 frames at 1880x840: SanDisk Extreme Pro 16GB 90 MB/s! (Without HaCk3D mode).
With 17th built i did about 450 frames.

Sorry to keep asking dumb newbie questions... but I can't get ML to work on my MK2.

The firmware is 2.1.2, and I used "macboot" (OSX 10.6.8 ) to create a bootable CF using option "Make DSLR-bootable". It says that I successfully created one...

Then I have downloaded the above .zip file, decompressed it and copied the contents ("AUTOEXEC.BIN" & "ML/" folder) to the root dir of my CF (folder where "DCIM/" & "MISC/" are located). When I insert the CF into my camera, and go to the firmware upgrade menu it says: "Memory card containing firmware is required". :(

I noticed that in these zip files (I tried a few from this thread) a "xxxxx.fir" file is missing?! E.g. in the 5d3 versions of ML there seem to be "xxx.fir" files...  could that be the problem?!

Thanks a lot for your help!

rs555 ... Here's the step-by-step sequence of how I did it. Not sure it's the best way, but it does seem to be the easiest way: http://5dfilmmaking.com/?p=62

And, I was able to shoot this, so it seemed to work. I had to manually repair the footers on files shot with the May 16 build (thanks, a.d. for the help on that!), and RAW2DNG rejects any file over 2 GB, but it's still pretty darn cool.

The build from 2013/05/19 for 5D2
a75c4a74d4b9

- I got some more frames vs previous build


Thanks a.d. !!

Test conditions:

- Komputerbay 32GB 1000x
- CF card in camera formatted prior to each setting
- 3 consequtive runs
- black image (lens cap on)

Results:

- @ 1880x840 25fps hacked on: 1104 (64.1 MB/s), 4GB limit (65.2 MB/s), 1426 (64.6 MB/s)
- @ 1880x840 24fps hacked on: 4GB limit (63.1 MB/s), 4GB limit (63.1 MB/s), 4GB limt (63.1 MB/s) <- stable!
 
- @ 1880x840 25fps hacked off: 1280 (64.5 MB/s), 1288 (64.5 MB/s), 1380 (64.5 MB/s)
- @ 1880x840 24fps hacked off: 4GB limit (63.1 MB/s), 4GB limit (63.1 MB/s), 4GB limt (63.1 MB/s) <- stable!

- @ 1880x960 25fps hacked on: 181 (64.1 MB/s), 189 (64.2 MB/s), 172 (64.2 MB/s)
- @ 1880x960 24fps hacked on: 246 (65.4 MB/s), 246 (65.1 MB/s), 246 (65.1 MB/s)

- @ 1880x960 25fps hacked off: 181 (64.5 MB/s), 181 (64.6 MB/s), 181 (64.3 MB/s)
- @ 1880x960 24fps hacked off: 246 (65.1 MB/s), 246 (64.8 MB/s), 246 (64.9 MB/s)

I have the impression while "hacked on" gives higher peak rates, "hacked off" results in more stable write speeds.
I also did a couple of tests with actual footage (not just lens cap on black images) and that resulted in considerably lower frame counts. How is that possible with uncompressed RAW footage? Is DNG somehow compressed? (fast runlength compression or something like that?)

It doesn't seem to work on 5D2, just tried. It should stop the LiveView image to free some CPU power. Boo...

If the cpu power is a variable for how frames we can shoot, is it possible (and a good idea?) to overclock it?

I agree, I think there must be some processor drain with actual images, based on your results.

Good test BTW!

For me the ability to customize the actual shooting resolution is the coolest feature of all... just did some quick tests with a 2x anamorphic lens at 1280x1080. Ok, already almost forgot the fact that this thing records in raw, of course (which is like 10x christmas condensed into a single day!) ;)

nice. that hack3d 3d option seems to give me more framerates.
managed to reached 1785 frames on a transcend 600x 16gb on 1888x720

it still bugs me i mananged to reach the 4gb limit a few times with an earlier build though.  >:(
