Dang it, I guess I'll stay with motion detect then. Too bad, it seems to be a very neat and useful feature. Thanks for the info.

Yeah, I was frustrated to which is what made me upgrade to 550D.  :(

Hi, mk11174, thank you for your bolt.mo!

Hi mk11174, g3gg0 and others,
appreciate all effort in the above topic, and would love to test bolt_raw with my 60D :)
Because lot of links in this topic are dead, I finally ended up setting the build environment...
I collected several bolt_raw binaries and sources, however, compiling with latest unified fails instantly.
Would there be anybody willing to share the entire source tree including bolt_raw or to indicate against which revision should I compile?

Hi, sorry, I don't have the buf_bolt one anymore, I just keep the bolt_raw up to date on my end since it will not be accepted as an update to bolt_rec that does not work anymore.

I myself use it all the time on my cameras, don't know which cameras it will work on, but so far it works on the 550D, the 600D, the 700D and the 5D2 as far as I know, it also works on the 500D, but its hardware is differ and does not capture full frames with it.

Here is the source I use, it compiles just fine with latest ML source. https://bitbucket.org/mk11174/magic-lantern/downloads/bolt_raw_source.zip

Here is the compiled module for those that can't compile. https://bitbucket.org/mk11174/magic-lantern/downloads/bolt_raw.mo

It works very well with my 5D3 (nightly build 03.07.14) at a resolution of 1920x818 , 22 fps and Dual ISO (didnĀ“t tried more at the moment). Thanks a lot.

Sounds good, by the way, these are just a couple of the day bolts I had gotten this year so far.

Following the latest advances in newly discovered SRM-memory, would there be any change in ability of SD cameras now to use the ring-buffer method?

yeah, sorry, the new srm memory update caused this in both nightly and the fullres version on my bitbucket, but no worries, I already updated it to work, just forgot to upload it as an update, thanks for reminding me.

Just to keep the topic alive, this is the bolt_raw in action with SRM-memory updates, 1728x972, 60D, abt 50% of frames have some distorsion

Nice job!, Nice bolt there! The 600D still has some pink frame issues as well like it always had with the old raw_rec that this was built from. For that cam I use the small hack feature in the bolt module and that def helps reduce them. One reason I wish there was away to make this work with the new raw_rec or mlv_rec because I know they are more reliable these days. Or just a whole new version of it. But the bolt trigger part of it is great, it always works fine gg3go created a fancy module here, its just the raw_rec part that the pink frames come from on certain cams.

Also, make sure your in movie mode and don't use beep, turn off in module, this all helps to keep camera stable for less corrupted frames, oh and of course for preview type, use only canon, not grayscale or anything, the less strain on camera the better.

Only cams I use that it works flawless on are the t5i and t2i, never have any issues with pink or corrupted frames on those cams, just the 600d/t3i out of my cams.

By the way, the srm-memory does not do anything with this module, since it is built from the old old raw_rec module, it does not include srm-memory patch.

Oh yes, I did not realize the workflow you used for bolt_raw. In addition, I had RAW accidentally selected as picture quality in Canon menu, not S2, as it should be. I know this has been reported to cause less memory issues during raw video recording, but it may have changed after SRM-memory updates. Beyond what has been said, let's wait for bolt-fullres-silent version commit and keep fingers crossed we will have a working trigger. All of you guys do awesome job here.

dmilligan has published a working version already locally. It works but will miss a few bolts for sure, not because he did a bad job, just because fullres lie view is very slow so it sometimes does not detect anything so will miss bolts totally, and sometimes it will trigger in the middle of a live view cycle or just a scan cycle and you will only get half the image captured sort of like the splits we get now but without the other piece to repair with later on.

I already compiled and can hook you up but do you have a fullres build, if not, what camera do you have I can build a version for you so you can test his module.

I updated the bolt_raw module, added more scanlines because I found that the more the better to avoid splits that only save 1 of the parts of a split, the more scanlines you use the better the odds of getting both parts saved for merging in post.

Also, you have the ability to adjust the position of them from bottom squeezing them together upward to avoid detections of things on the ground or below the horizon and puts more use of the scanlines on the sky area.

Also fine tuned the autoexposure feature so it very quickly exposes at start until it gets to the trigger line then starts delaying how often it exposes so theres no looping and spaced the average and peaking out a bit to give more freedom in cloud level changes, the trigger picks even the weakest bolts with a good spike so the graph really does not need to be so tight against the trigger line.

And the last feature is the ability to use internal trigger or an external bolt trigger that plugs into your remote port. I recently bought one for testing and it works great, good option to have in case internal one does not work good for your sky.

Updated the module above again just to get rid of some unused code to keep module small as possible.

Not exactly sure, I did try once but it was declined because of a promised new version of bolt_rec, but the creator came up with the cool mlv_rec so that is probably his main focus, which is fine because that module is awesome!!! I was just happy I could save the bolt_rec and the old raw_rec and merge them into 1 neat module. I cleaned it up pretty good, the only old stuff it uses still is the old buffer method, I don't know enough to convert it to the new way, plus it works fine so maybe leave well enough alone I guess. I will make sure its always available on my site though and will keep it up to date cause I use it for every storm I get.
