Of course, if you have RAW video enabled, i.e. you can record raw...
go to live view, press the zoom button, press the trash button, enter the Raw video menu, scroll through the sizes...

No, I think you misunderstood me. I know how to get the crop recording, but even when I'm set up to record crop, it doesn't allow me the option to select the 2048. I'll continue playing around with it.

So I've seen a couple of small posts about this, and so I tried it out...

When you're in custom mode (C1,C2,C3 on the main dial) you get twice the number of buffer stars (**** instead of **), and I don't get any dropped frames on my 5D3 with my KomputerBay 64gb 1000x!

Why is this? What's up with this?  Any of the developers know?

Seems pretty great so far...

Why would I want twice the number of buffer stars?  When it gets to ***** it stops/skips frames.  I want just one * while I'm recording, not twice an many.  I'm confused.

They want more buffer stars because it represents more buffers to use while recording.

They don't mean the stars lighting up while recording that indicates buffer usage.

To be clear, they actually mean whatever character symbol it is that indicates an empty buffer.

Audionut, I've always had 4 or 5 stars - you mean some people only have/had 2?

It varies by camera.

But he was talking about the 5d3.  I am stunned that a 5d3 owner would be shooting jpgs I guess.  Maybe he was shooting Raw + JPG?

It was on multi-burst mode.

Also, I don't think I've ever used it for still photos... only video.  :-/

Moreover, some situations (like anything involving family) are absolutely fine for jpeg photos.

Anything involving family?  I always shoot raw for everything.  I can see for quick snaps, but that's not why you bought a 5d3 is it?  Grab your point and shoot for jpgs.  I always shoot my family in raw.  But to each their own.

Yeah, it also changes based on how many free buffers there are.

I personally shoot Raw myself also.  But I've seen plenty of valid reasons why someone would use JPG.
One is journalism, where you want to get your photo, to the press, as quickly as possible.

However, lets not turn this into a JPG vs Raw thread please.  Feel free to start another thread in general chat.

Seriously.  give it a rest.  my camera wasn't set to record jpgs as I have said over and over again, it was set in multi burst mode.

Who cares about jpeg vs raw?  i care about h.264 vs raw.

Anyone mind doing a summary of this thread? I have been following the forum for a long time (daily since the beginning og raw video) and still, reading this thread threw me off.
I'd appreciate it if someone would do a simple "DO/DO NOT" write-up of all these little tips and tricks.

To get started, am I right in assuming the following settings for optimizing raw video on 5d3:

All settings pertaining to NR = OFF
Save foto as = RAW
Drive mode = SINGLE
HDR&Multiple exp = OFF
Daybreak broke me loose and brought me back...
