Raw File when battery dies
« on: August 11, 2013, 04:55:21 PM »
I have searched for this topic and was unable to find any information. I am currently using the 50D Aug 10 Tragic Lantern build (but have had the same issue with every other build). When I am recording a long clip I have had the issue where my battery will die (5 minutes in), the resulting file I am unable to pull out the DNG's from the raw files.

on the card I see:
backup.raw
M11-1001.RAW
.......
M11-1001.005

I believe there is important information in the footer section of the raw, is that is what is in the Backup.raw? do I need to merge that into the end of the M11-1001.Raw files?

If backup.raw does not contain the footer information, is it possible to have ML right before shutdown to write that footer information in?

2nd (or third) question. Is there a way to get a low battery indication warning of some kind, so I know to kill it right away?

Thank you for all of your hard work. Again sorry if this is already posted some other place.
