Some odd benchmark runs
« Reply #750 on: December 19, 2014, 04:35:17 PM »
Komputerbay 1066x 128 GB




I know benchmarks and real life performance aren't that much related but I'm indeed a bit confused about the benchmark numbers in movie mode. I'm able to use data write rates around 80 MByte/s with RAW_REC but benchmark numbers are lower by quite a margin.
Is this a 7D specific issue?

Second one: I'm not able to access photo mode benchmark. When benchmark is started (no liveview, not video mode) it will enter playback mode regardless if play button is pressed or not.

I don't think my benchmarks have ever broken 100 MB/s, impressive! I think my movie and playback benchmarks were pretty similar to each other, I'll check on that. When you run benchmark in photo mode the speeds are most accurate in playback mode I believe, I thought it was strange as well that a picture displayed while benchmarks were running but it's normal, afaik.

AFAIK, in playback mode there are a lot of Canon tasks that aren't running, so more resources can be devoted to reading/writing to the card. This approximates what raw recording does when it's running (disables/slows down lots of Canon tasks, so itself has as much priority as possible). That's why numbers are much better in playback mode.

Canon 7D Raw footage. Testing Magic Lantern ver. Nightly.2014Oct08.7D203 on Canon 7D: http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/
Original footage res. 1729x 972 and 2240x1200 (5x zoom on Live view) using 24-105 mm Canon Lens.
It took me 32 GB for presented video. CF 64GB-600x speed.

No color grading when editing. I add a little clarity and sharpness.

Any news on the port to 2.0.5? What's the main issue?

Main issue: Someone has to code it.
Do you really need to use 2.0.5?

Maybe not, but I don't like downgrading something.
I could try and help (I'm in computer science), but I don't know what the status is and how to move forward :/

All in 5x, 23.9fps, 1/50th of a second for everything with about 270-305 frames before automagically stopping. Seems like 15 seconds is the max so far.

Your mileage may vary but I don't need any of the improvements coming with 2.0.5. Do you?

To be honest I haven't even looked into what improvements were added. I'm pretty happy with the latest build so far.

Only (official) item:
=====
Firmware Version 2.0.5 incorporates the following fix:

    Fixes a phenomenon in which the image files cannot be transferred using the FTP protocol via USB cable after the Canon EOS 7D camera has established a wireless connection to the Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E5A.
=====
I see no urge, really.

I found 2.0.5 to produce sharper images, I downgraded to run ML which seemed to cause soft-focus on my 7D, but the benefits of ML are worth it... Maybe just me though.

The "soft focus", have you checked if the 7D is forward or back focusing?
