Recording Sound while shooting RAW on Canon 5D Mark ii
« on: July 20, 2013, 05:04:42 AM »
First off, thanks to all the developers out there. I have been using Magic Lantern for almost 3 years, I LOVE IT! I had a question about shooting RAW video and recording sound. Is this possible yet, I might be missing the setting? Thanks to anyone that knows :)

I tried it out back when it used to exist and it killed the write speed on my card. Right now we they are pushing the limit of memory bandwidth trying to get the mark ii to shoot continuous at near HD. If you are recording sound to as well a lot of that data writing bandwidth will go to audio so you will loose a great deal of resolution on your video. Since it has to be recombined in post anyway it is much better to record audio with another device and use the synch beep or some other means to synch the audio and video. That way you don't have to sacrifice resolution for audio.
