Unfortunately, I've been having to debug CF card issues. I'm still working on how to get 1920x1080 consistently. I can get resolutions below that, but I'm not doing all this work just to settle for a compromise! ;-)
Fortunately, there's a lot of helpful discussion going on over at the ML forums. I feel like the primary issue with the RAW hack is CF card performance. I can see why Canon wouldn't bother with this: even the top CF cards barely cut it. There are only a few cards up to the task. I thought I had a super badass card (Lexar 1000x), but I'm still having to finesse it to get 1920x1080.
Yeah, now I've run into the same problem. After recording 8-10 clips at 1920x1080 on this card it's now stopping after 33 frames every time. I have a couple of thoughts on this. I know that with solid-state hard drives the fuller they become, the slower become due to the load leveling strategies that get used and the reluctance to rewrite flassh cells until all of them have seen some use. Another thought is battery power. ML started giving me a yellow battery indicator at the same time this started. I wonder if power management comes into play and some of the hardware gets underclocked.
I'll troubleshoot tomorrow, but if you have any breakthroughs please let me know.
