Hi, i wanted to know if it's worth it to shoot RAW on the 550D ?
Is shooting H.264 1080p on Cinestyle giving better results than shooting RAW 960x540 ?

Really all depends. There's plenty of visual samples and comparisons of both around.
You should probably try both and see which one gives you better results.
However, even if RAW only gave slightly better results the extra processing may be more than it's worth.

@slashblater yeah its worth shooting in raw if you love color grading. convert to cdng and you can start editing the cdng files in premiere pro cc. i miss my 550D. i sold out last year and upgrade to 650D to shoot higher resolution but now i wanted to go back and buy a 550D. now i can shoot 720P with 650d but  it gets some weird pink dots while shooting raw. need to remove in post production. its a pain in the ass. stil now i have some raw footage shot by 550D and i love them. dont edit on 1080P timeline. edit in 960X540 timeline and render in 1080P after editing.

A few of us are working on making those "pink dots" a bit less of a PITA.

We could use some help mapping out focus pixels from the various cameras that are affected.

Hi everybody
I need a help to use raw record with my 550. I'm an old user of ML but not in raw record. I try to use the available resolutions for the continuous rec but, for example, if I put 960x540, Magic Lantern crop the frame... anything wrong?
Thanks in advance

Just kind of hopping on board with the 550d train.

Got this camera a year ago because it filmed 1080p and I did some research which ended up giving me information saying that hacking this camera was the way to go and that in the hands of a great user, you can get some great footage out of it.

Let me tell, it's true.

I catch on to these things quick, and just recently I decided to leap into RAW video with this camera.

Still my first and only camera I've bought and personally owned and I've done a lot of great work with it.

Here's a short video I did to test out the RAW capabilities of the camera- details inside the video link at vimeo.
(P.S - I think I'm misaligned with my camera or so, but the focus is wrong on half the shots here, and I didn't realize til after I edited and was already working on getting the video together, so I just went with it.)

Enjoy :)

Hi, im new to this forum. I would like to thank Magic Lantern Team for giving the best out of canon dslrs. It's really helpful for hobbyist like me who want to achieve better results without buying expensive camera. Just last 2 weeks I bought a used canon 70d and I want to try it with ML. Hope the stable version will be released soon! Anyway, here's my video test of canon 550d.

You won't see anything called "stable" in the near future. Most likely: Never. Devs switched to some kind of "Rolling relase" (Google is your friend ...) model some time ago.

There is/was v2.3 stable. Not supported anymore. Outdated.
There are nightly builds.
There *were* nightly builds containing "v2.3" in build name.
You will find builds #1 (magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2013Aug22.550D109.zip) to #410 (magiclantern-Nightly.2016Sep16.550D109.zip) via download page.
I have no idea which build you are talking about.

Hi
Sorry to introduce a slightly different topic but has anyone tried to process raw vids on DaVinci Resolve 12? and if so how did you go about it?
Regards
Tim

Please take look into http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?board=54 for pp workflows.
And Google will offer some options, too.

Hello everyone!

I have owned Canon EOS 550D for several years now, and installed ML about year ago, but never got myself into it. I was suspicious with the low RAW resolution first, but especially if you are after the film look, RAW mode seems to work surprisingly well even for this ancient piece of camera. Here's my first experiment with RAW. This is a counter for people who shoot boring holiday videos: a sick leave video. I hope you enjoy. :)


Workflow:
Shoot -> RAW2CDNG -> DaVinci Resolve -> Sony Vegas Pro

I think my memory card was a tad too slow, so I was limited to 9 - 16 sec flicks. Also it seems that Vimeo got the audio slightly out of sync. Have to look into it.

It seems that with EOS 50D you could get slightly better resolution, so I consider upgrading my camera for that one.

Big thanks for ML team for the great effort!

Hi everyone. Please forgive me if my concerns sound like a noob, because I am. I'm so confused, and I can't seem to find the answer I need on the thread. I just recently installed ML with the latest builds, and I can't seem to get the right settings that I want for high resolution to shoot RAW (mlv_rec or mlv_light) for that matter. I've seen lots of posts here with their rendered videos, and the settings that they used are great. I can only shoot at 640x540, 24fps, 2:39 aspect ratio, to get a footage of about 22-23 seconds (16GB Sandisk Extreme 80Mbps). Some say that this setting is good, I couldn't agree more. But, others can shoot at a much higher resolution, and I don't get it why I can't do the same. I know that 550D can only process 21MB but how come others can pull it off by merely around 10 seconds in 1280X544, 2.35:1, 24fps (I saw some footages in Vimeo and Youtube)? What is the secret? Please, I need clarity.  :)

PS: I've set my Canon Video Mode to 1080p at 24fps and RAW. Does that setting affect the ML Video Raw Setting as well? If it does, what should be my setting on the camera?
