I'm not sure exactly what you are asking, but the 50D doesn't support exFAT.

Help! Does anyone know if these corrupt frames can be recovered? I shot this footage with the 50D during a hot day and I was pushing the camera to it's limits. Some of the footage looks like the frame below. Is there any way to recover these frames? I've included my log file with the camera settings in case it will help. Here's a link to two original dngs - one good, one bad:

Good frame : https://www.dropbox.com/s/y5u6lcvdoi6w1m1/M23-1719.000032.dng?dl=0

Hello everyone. I'm having a problem here with my 50d. Im using v2.3 of ML.

The problem is that I don't have some of the options in the menus, specially Dual ISO and ETTR.

Can anyone help me with that?

[edit]

I managed it with a nightly build. It was in the modules, just needed to activate them.

Hi. Anybody knows what causes green artifacts in overexposed areas? I use MLV, MLVConverter, ACR.

There was also another thread with results very similar to yours.  a1ex replied to that user.  Spend some time with the search function if the above link doesn't help.

TY Audionut, it was that. Now everything seems to be OK. BTW what is the recommended software to process mlv at this time? As I understand it "Magic lantern RAW video converter" is not being updated or developed anymore? Is there a good and reliable alternative with a similar functionality (batch, GUI)?
Thanks again for your help.

I'm tempted to pick up a 50D because of its CF slot and larger pixels for low light shots.

Is the max CF slot speed still 70MB/s?  If I'm shooting raw with 1920 width, what's the tallest frame height I can set for continuous shooting?  Or can I even have 1920 width at all?

Hi DigitalVeil!
With 50D and Magic Lantern you can shoot H.264 at Full HD (1920x1080), or RAW Video at max. 1568 width (I think it's 1568x882).
There is a option to use digital zoom x5 - with that option you can record Full HD RAW Video. BUT even with the fastest card, the 50D sometimes stops in that mode, and also you can't use x5 zoom mode for the most situations.
Also the highest FPS you can set is 30fps.

I got a 50D and it's a great video camera for it's cheap price. But you can not really compare to a 5D Mk3, because of it's bigger sensor (good for low light) and it's Full HD Raw video option.

If you are looking at the price - the 50D is the best camera you can get for it's price. If you want the best video camera and can spend money - you can find better cameras.

Don't forget: 50D was a photo camera without video mode, so it does not have audio recording. Also don't forget the CF cards are expensive for RAW video, I have 2x KomputerBay 64GB 1050x, each one for 85€ (something around $100). I think you can record something around 15mins on 64GB - one minute RAW video is like 4GB.

Any other questions? Just ask me! :-)

Thanks so much for being so helpful and kind!  I appreciate the in-depth answer, that clears up all my questions!  The only other thing I'm wondering - does setting FPS to 24 allow a slightly larger resolution?

The main reason I'm interested in one is that I can pick up a used one for $350-400 and shoot RAW at above 720p and get better low-light performance than my 70D.  I don't know if I particularly need a 3rd DSLR on my video shoots, but at the price I could get one, why not?  Lack of audio is not a big problem for me, as I prefer recording audio to an external device anyway, but I didn't know about the price of CF cards and how fast they fill up with RAW.  Thanks for that info!

24 fps won't enable a higher resolution no. I also wouldn't expect better low light performance than a 70D. I believe the 50D will perform worse actually, but not significantly. More or less the same.

Hi! I would like to ask for some help.
On the EOS 50D with the Magic Lantern do we have a length limitation? Or can we record videos as long as we would like to?

I don't have the 50D I just plan to buy one, and this is an important aspect.

I woud record spychotherapy sessions, wcich can be long, even about 2 hours.
I would not buy a dedicated video camera, if not necessary.

Thanks a lot!

What are the limitations of 5x crop mode? I'm considering getting 5D2 in the future for shooting in 5xC mode with a wide lens to get away from aliasing and moire... What should I be aware of and ready for?

it's not 5x, it's more like 3x. The 50D doesn't show the whole recording area in this mode. Besides, the recording area isn't centered, unlike the other cameras

OK, didn't know that. But 5d2 is ok in this sense, right? Any other flaws of using crop? What do you think about my idea of using wide lens + crop?

I don't have a 5D. maybe someone with more experience using wide angle lenses for crop mode would help you. I use the 3x crop for tele shots, and it's a very good feature

Re: Canon 50D - update 6+minute raw shoot
« Reply #372 on: November 15, 2014, 07:21:45 PM »
Well, I've been using the 50D for a month or so and I'm pretty impressed with what ML does.  Yes, I get the occasional hang, but that doesn't matter.  This works and is beautiful and I love it and...ok, enough of that.

I did a test shoot a few weeks back while shooting a class reunion.  Venue temperature was around 85F.  I had been shooting continuously with the camera for several hours, in still mode.  I shifted to raw video mode and let it fly.  It ran for over 6 minutes before it overheated.  That is far more than I thought it could.  Shooting on a San Disk 120 card.

There haven't been many updates or entries lately, so I figured I'd post these findings to let you know we are still here and very much appreciative!!!

I apologize in advanced if I'm asking in wrong place but searched forum directly and trough google and found ziltch :( .. so when I looked at the changelog of the nightly I seen some stuff that's out of place ... for e.g. webdavserver.. and since I was pretty sure there's no webdav server inside the 50d I went to look at the sources and found bunch of interesting stuff in the contrib directory. When I download nightly build it contains only the stuff that goes on the CF card and into camera, all these nice apps that exist in the project itself are not in that build so the question finally is: where can I download nightly build of "everything"? EOSMovieFixer for example or MLVBrowseSharp or ...

Practice your search skills. ;)

webdavserver
MLVBrowseSharp
EOSMovieFixer


Some of the contribs may not be available as a pre-built binary.  In which case, you will have to build them yourself.
