After all, whether you like it or not, you are simply not getting 1080p out of the 50D.
QuoteQuestion for anyone shooting on the 50D with a monitor - What happens to the monitor display when you shoot in crop mode?

Quote from: jamesd256 on November 08, 2013, 01:50:50 AMI've been using the Tragic Lantern build from 11 October by Andy600. First results were good. I was getting continuous recording at 1920x1080 in crop, with the data rate reported at around 70-80MB/sFor some reason now, it drops out after a second or two at that resolution. Any suggestions what to try. I could try formatting the card, but the thing is, if I have to format the card every time it gets a third full, it's not much use.Could anyone summarise the difference in the level of support for raw on the 50d between TL and the nightlies. I'm also getting the pink screen on half shutter bug, which I found a report saying was resolved, but it only mentioned the 5d3.Also I've been reading about auto ETTR with support for automatic dual-iso being available. Is there a build that has that and gives good results for raw on the 50D?
QuoteI have tried re-formatting, but the problem won't go away. Latest attempt at turning on raw module produced a crash with a crashlog:
Quote from: pulsar124 on November 08, 2013, 01:07:45 PMI only did a quick test last night with my my card Lexar 32GB 1000x and TL Oct 11 build, and I had no issues recording uncropped 3:2 video at 24 fps, with ~79.5 MB/s. I'll do more testing this weekend.An idea - sorry if this was already discussed. Is it feasible to create a "virtual rail system" using crop mode on 50D? Are there any technical reasons which would only allow crop video to be sampled from the center of the frame? If not, perhaps such virtual panning is possible to implement? Say, one can specify how many pixels per frame the horizontal shift should be (could be negative), same for vertical shift. Then the crop area would be initially placed at one end of the full frame, and then would shift every frame by the specified X and Y pixels values, until it reaches the opposite end of the frame. I've seen this effect in some movies, looks very cool. I suspect it won't look real when using a wide angle lens (because of the perspective distortions at the edges of the frame), bur for 50mm and longer this should not very very obvious.
Quote from: jamesd256 on November 08, 2013, 10:45:00 PMYou can choose which area is used in crop by moving the box as usual before you record.There is a digital dolly setting in the raw menu, which is supposed to let you use the joystick to pan the sampled area during cropped recording. In my case it doesn't work as expected. Once the option is enabled, the joystick ceases to move the focus box at all, recording or not. I've looked for documentation on the feature, but obviously it's not in the user guide yet.From what I've seen demo'ed, it could do with a softer start. Looks a bit robotic. Also, would be good to be able to set start and end points and speed as you suggest.
Quote from: 1% on November 08, 2013, 11:01:22 PMIts not that complex but you should be in zoom mode for it to move the box around, otherwise its got nothing to move.
Quote from: LEVISDAVIS on November 09, 2013, 01:31:18 AMNo news on the final VAF from Mosaic Engineering, as far as emails or phone calls.... Been on a shoot for the past 5 days in Tucson,AZ. Just shoot a documentary for the 14th conference for the National Scenic and Historic trails. Volunteered for the project and shoot about 1TB of footage.Had two files in the mix of nearly 200 shots where the 2nd .roo was not finished in the writing due to camera errors. Will look into both the VAF and to find a way to fix a .roo file.Again, the VAF isn't hitting the 50 d's resolution that hard. Also, I read somewhere about the 5d3 having an anti-aliasing filter and the possibility of removing the filter. Is the 50 d the same?
