EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mark III & RAW Video, A Case Study
« on: May 30, 2013, 08:46:05 PM »
Hmm... I prefer the Canon one over the Magic Lantern one.

Give it a real try and you will NOT say that.

It depends what you mean by a real try... On a typical day I might shoot 150 clips. Processing each one of those using the current methods for getting raw video out the 5dm3 would be 1) a massive pain in the ass 2) so time consuming that it isn't worthwhile for anyone actually making professional work.

At the moment it's amazing for hobbyists (or other people for whom time doesn't equal money) - but unusable for anyone who makes videos for a living.
There are professionals who shoot RAW and make a living doing so. Whats the difference between the other cameras RAW and the 5d3's?

The ONE step of dragging your RAW clips to raw2dng???
ok.

Newer builds can shoot more than 4gb clips now.
for cards formatted in camera(file size limit of 4gb for those cards), it will automatically split the clip at 4gb
for cards formatted with EXT(probably completely wrong about the format name), it can record a single clip as big as your card

the newest builds of raw2dng can extract both.

It seems like there must be something wrong with my card now. It was brand new Lexar 1000x 32gb. I recorded about 10 1920x1080 raw clips on it with no problem...usually about 3 at a time after which I would delete the files but not reformat or anything. Then it stopped working. Now it will write 116.1mb before the buffer fills. This is regardless of what resolution I try. ML shows a write speed of 6.6mb/s, so something has crippled the card.  Just for the heck of it, I tried one of my older Lexar 400x 16gb cards and ML is able to write to them at 26mb/s no problem, so it's not the camera.

I've tried reformating, aligning partition to 4096, completely overwriting the card. Still, no change from 6.6mb/s. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I'm thinking that it's 3 days old at this point and I should just return it.

The other isolation test (in addition to trying a different card) would be to try that Lexar card with a different camera. But that's probably academic at this point. Bottom line: if it doesn't work... it doesn't work. And if you can solve the problem by getting a different card... save yourself the headache.

I've purchased several cards because it's clear that the size options are a function of the card's performance. I'm returning a KomputerBay 128GB card. I'll find out how the Transcend 128GB works when I get it next week. If the Transcend 128GB doesn't work out, I'll be trying Toshiba 64GB and maybe Transcend 64GB (if I feel like pressing my luck). Considering how much we pay for these things, the ability to return it is part of the cost.

Many of the 128GB cards are much slower than their 64gb counter parts. Why not save yourself some money and go with the 64gb Komputerbay card that are PROVEN to work with the RAW at 1080p.
I've only seen 1 or 2 cases of them not working and it was because of a dead card, not speed

Heres a test. a stupid one but nevertheless a quick recorded clip.

1. make a folder and plop rawtodng.exe and the RAW video file into it
2. drag the RAW video file onto rawtodng.exe, wait a while
3. move the RAW video file and the rawtodng.exe to some other folder

Can I do these first three steps in Windows, and then perform the remaining steps on a Mac?

Presumably someone will develop a Mac version of rawtodng.exe in the next few months.

I'm still stunned by the possibilities here.

I'll do you one better. Here is the raw2dng app compiled for mac. Same thing applies. Just drag your raw file and drop onto this app(after unzipping app of course) and it will create a folder wherever your raw file is with DNG's

THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lenses / Just bought a 17-40mm F4 L
« on: April 29, 2013, 03:50:15 AM »
What are some things that I should check out to be sure that everything is working as should?
What are good ways the clean the focus and zoom dials(has like a white residue stuff maybe rain/sweat)
Seems to be good to me. Don't notice any scratches or cracks

Asking price was $550, talked him down to $460.
I don't really shoot wide so I wasn't really looking to purchase this lens(really wanted something with IS ie.24-105) but I like to see how good of a deal I can get. Sometimes, I get deals too good to pass up lol.

Appreciate it
I will test tonight.  I dont have an HDMI monitor here at the office.

For those of you who have tested, are you getting an uncompressed signal through HDMI?
I mean, does the recorded video look flat as an uncompressed video should be (like the videos that the Black Magic camera produces)?

Thanks everyone. I hope it makes me a better photographer hahaha

Congratulations!

Great job advertising iPhone camera to!
I just got my iPhone5 and I think in some respects produces better jpegs than my first digital 8MP Rebel.
Dang, was it THAT bad of a photo?
I actually shot it with my 5d3 and 100mm macro.
In my car using natural light. I thought it was a good photo :-(

I think he was commenting on the "iPhone 4S camera" in your signature below your posts :)

I thought about that as well lol
