EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Canon EOS-1D C Coming Down in Price Again?

The difference is that canon probably didnt even realise how big a deal that was.  Look at how intentionally gimped the 6d's autofocus is. The cxxx line, and 1dc both came out at around the same time or before the 5d3 and feature better video/options.

Yes...but will the new 5 body output 4k without the crud?  A truly clean out for an external recorder?

If not and if the cam doesn't have better DR for stills then the solution is to keep 5D3 for general shooting and 1080P RAW and to get some A7R II with 4k from Sony later this year.


Nah.  Sony a7s II for this guy.  I'm primarily interested in a new 1DX model. I do a lot of dance. Renting right now is fine, but I need speed.  Otherwise 6D is lovely for my other stuff.  Want video. Hence a7S... short of Canon blowing our minds with a new 5 body that can

Canon is all about continuity within their own product lines, Id love to be wrong but even if its capable I doubt canon allows a 5d to usurp their flagship cinema dslr with better video quality. expecting the same as the 7d2 personally.

with the 4k video you can probably use screengrabs from any video it outputs as photos

I do recall seeing those lines on earlier builds ages ago, when this stuff was just coming out. try the 1066x hoodman raw steel or toshiba exceria cards. also try a different ML build. also ask on the ML forums, there will be far more people familiar with the problem.

ive never heard of the rx100 dust issue, and after owning one for a period of time it was never an issue.

The version I have includes the raw module in it, there wasnt any extra hunting for it on the forums. But I agree, their forums are pretty terrible and the way they lay out things is rubbish over there :)

5d3's is pretty solid as is, the interface could be better but i think ML as is is kind of fiddly so Im not really sure how much more you can expect out of it. EOSHD's guide to getting the firmware working is all you really need, the only major searching might be now that the link to the fw in his guide could be out of date.
All in all im not too worried about the flags or bricking it, I would expect its a minor fix for canon if something were to go wrong(as its just software), unlike getting moisture into it or damage from being dropped.

Technical Support / Re: 5DIII Magic Lantern help?
« on: August 05, 2013, 01:22:03 AM »
first, 1920x1080 needs 82mb/s according to the ML, it says at the bottom of mine the general mb/s and it changes depending on the resolution. I just tried and the mb/s creeped up to about 91/s when I stopped it after 30seconds or so.
You may want to try the memory hack, and change the preview to hacked, as well as turning off global draw to squeeze out a bit more performance, but it may not do all that much. one of those settings may disable the liveview when you record, cant remember which(or maybe it was another).

try recording to a lower res and make sure you can do it, i think that cards speed should handle 1280x720, just to see if raw video gets recorded at all.

also theres a benchmark in the debug. theres a bunch of posts over at the ML forums on memory card speeds and the results, you will have to search for it. I can personally vouch for the toshiba exceria 1066 32gb card, does 1920x1080 easily.

Right, so gaining features from the xD line at a lower price point is a bad thing. I also have a 5d3, but yeah id love a 1dx and not pay for it, who wouldnt  ::)

why would the 30d get you a point over the 40 and 50d?

Lenses / Re: Canon 35mm f2 IS
« on: July 21, 2013, 04:58:33 PM »
I have this lens, I think the IS may be more like 3 stops. I haven't had the experience of the 1.4, but I bought this over the sigma for the size, weight, and reliable af. AF is super fast, I dont know where you got the idea that it was slower but it seems like its at the top of the heap for lens af I have used(well out of 24-105, 70-200f4 and 135).
It does vignette quite a bit, also the plastic construction, not an issue to me, people gush about the EOS M's construction but they feel similar to me, its well built and leagues ahead of the 50 1.8. For me the real cons are the coma, it is pretty terrible for astrophotography, and obviously price.
I bought this mainly as a primary walkaround lens for my 5d3, and I think it fills that gap rather well.

for those clamoring for an integrated battery grip, why is a separate model not good enough?
