  1. Jadesroom, thanks for posting the reminder. Cheers.
  2. Deadcode, It''ll be fun to see what Reddeercity comes up with. Maybe nothing or maybe something. Cheers.
  3. Reddeercity post today... I should mention that the 5D2 HDMI signal is 8bit 4.2.2 Full range (0-255) , Check it on my AJA Kona LHi video capture card . So by this theoretically "UHD 8bit(24 bit/px) 3840x2160 30p 4.2.2" would be in the realm of possibility . Here's hoping
  4. It sounds interesting indeed. We'll have to see what "Reddeercity" comes up with. Interesting thread on the Magiclantern site. Also, good point Mkabi. I'd suspect if he gets it working on the 5d2 then perhaps it'll work on most of the other models.
  5. I've been periodically reading the Magic Lantern board out of interest. I sold my 5d2 years back and bought the 1DC. There was always something special about the 5d2. Anyhow, for those interested Reddeercity from Magic Lantern seems to be making progress with the 5d2. Reddeercity's post: Looking in to the HDMI resolution limitations , if everyone doesn't know on the 5D2 the HDMI output @ 1650x1080 60i 4.2.2 uncompressed (1500MB/s) It anyone wondering why the 5d2 has this res. when standard HDMI is normally 1920x1080 or 1280x720 From what I can figure out there was no need for 16x9 format (After all 5D2 was the first to introduce Video to DSLR's) as a second thought . So the main object was Photo's and a 3x2 format was needed for photos in Liveview so hence 1650x1080 . So I connected my HDMI Evf & loaded ADTG_GUI.mo and saved a log file So I may have found some reg's that control this . Code: [Select] c0f11314: 4d70653 .... LiveViewMgr pc=ffa07c28 addr=ffca88e0 LV resolution (raw.j.height | lv.width) before upsampling?If you convert this to decimal you get 4d7=1239 & 653=1619 so 1619x1267 , look very close Code: [Select] c0f0713c: 4f5 ...... LiveViewMgr pc=ff8e1830 addr=8328 HEAD3 timer (ticks?) c0f07150: 681 ..... LiveViewMgr pc=ff8e1844 addr=8370 HEAD4 timer (ticks?)convert this to decimal 4f5=1269 & 681=1665 so 1665x1269 I could be totally wrong but that so close , now there's more then likely more reg's evolved here , it could be the hd buffer is the limitation. There a few reason why I what to hopfully fix this issue , First: to get real full 1920x1080 so it would be usable without resizing . Second: the HDMI spec 1.3a allowed up to 2560×1440 at 60 Hz & 1920 × 1080 at 120 Hz Since there's 4k monitor's & recorder out there and getting cheaper everyday, well I thinks it time to look in to this to see it it's possible . Edit: Ok I forgot to mention the hdmi 1.3a supports 8bit(24 bit/px) , 10bit(30 bit/px), 12bit(36 bit/px), 16bit(48 bit/px) up to 2560x1440 60i Color Space: RGB, Y′CBCR 4:4:4 & Y′CBCR 4:2:2 and apparently hdmi 1.3a supports UHD 8bit(24 bit/px) 3840x2160 30p 4.2.2 & 60p @4.2.0 and also 5k 8bit(24 bit/px) 5120 × 2880 30p 4.2.2 Maybe there's hope yet for real-time hdmi UHD up to 5k preview
  6. Reddeercity is making progress with the Canon 5d2.. Read below if interested... Link: https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=19336.300 Reddeercity most recent post: Ok got 4096x1074 @ 18fps working -- It's almost useable as is Needed to add CMOS[2] 0x10E ->0xE (same as full width 5632) A & B Timers setting for 18 fps For same reasons mlv_rec in crop_mode cut off the 48 pixels from 4096 to 4048 , not sure why . 4048x1074-18fps-M02-2240_00001.png If you look at the dng from the image _dump it's 4104x1074 and there no black space on the right side like the PNG . 4104x1075-18fps-RAW-020.DNG 4104x1074_image_dump-RAW-020.png used dcraw to export a ppm them saved it to png with Irfan View 4096x1074-M02-2240_000000.dng Cdng exported from MLVFS (quick mount) there a 48pixel black area on the right , thinking the problem is mlv_rec , I see in the code there's a 160 pixel crop , so may be change that to 100 maybe Code: [Select] Subfile Type : Full-resolution Image Image Width : 4264 Image Height : 1127 Bits Per Sample : 14 .......... Default Crop Size : 4104 1075 Active Area : 52 160 1127 4264 Code: [Select] Black Level : 1001 White Level : 16200This is also interesting , can the black level really be 1001 ? Image looks great , so I guess this is ok , but strange -- I recorded at 10bit . Recorded a short .mlv about 10 seconds exported it to h264 from mlvproduder 4096x1074-18fps-M02-2240.mov So close now to 24 just need 6 more frames per second . Now it time to work on Lossless compression , since I'm close to having the presets done. So far I have , full liveview , 2880x1080, 3168x1330, 5632x1074 ,4096x1074 I'm thinking of added some of the near full height in 2k mode e.g. 2144x1842 or 2144x1586. I would like to add 48 FPS in FHD (1856x720) but it's too unstable right now , need a lot of work yet.
  7. I wish I never sold mine years ago. Will see how things develop...
  8. RedDeerCity is making progress with the Canon 5D2 - from frame rates and resolution. Example: "Working on increasing height in 3x Crop_mode , I'm up to 2152x1331 Code: [Select] Default Crop Size : 2152 1331 Active Area : 52 160 1383 2312 Image Size : 2312x1383 RAW-002_2152x1331.DNG The last 300 line at the bottom is because I haven't implemented a1ex's redirect buffer for larger image in the edmac capture (that's coming very soon , along with a updated crop_rec with added presets up to full width ) Also got 3200x1200 working , did have good success with 3168x1152 M13-2030_000000_3168x1152.dng Did get 3168x1330 , still needs more work to get 24fps (at 21 fps right now)" Link: https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=19336.275
  9. 20 second grade. Hope I didn't mess up too bad.
  10. Quick grade. Probably should have had my glasses on. Cheers.
  11. Interesting website on the matter. I'm only presenting alternate thought. http://drtimball.com/ Interesting videos on the subject too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDK1aCqqZkQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEaFzhoS67I https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RrQxidb4xSQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GujLcfdovE8
  12. Tug, I don't think France will be adopting Trump for their comedic legend....very few can compete with the French comic genius of Jacques Tatischeff.
