  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.
  13. Hey everyone, Jerry Lewis dies at age 91 years old. Biography link: http://www.allmovie.com/artist/jerry-lewis-p99633 Fact sheet Made his showbiz debut at age 5 with his vaudevillian parents in New York's Catskill Mountains, singing "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?" Partnership with Dean Martin lasted from 1946 to '56; they starred together in 16 movies and numerous TV shows. Taught a class in filmmaking at USC; students included Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. Began hosting an annual Labor Day telethon for the Muscular Dystrophy Association in 1966. Invented the video assist, a video camera linked to a motion-picture lens, which allows directors to immediately view a take. Received the Emmy Governors Award in 2005, and France's Legion of Honor award in 1984.
  14. Hey Dave, If you want to recite scripture then go for it. Your approach is your artistic quality. I enjoyed your scripture reciting. It is unfortunate how people get so offended so quickly. “He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone at her.” Now, if you were on a crowded elevator and started to rip some juicy wet ones, then I'd think it would be fair for people to take offence unless they passed gas first. Keep at it with your videos. Cheers.
  15. Canon EOS 5D Mark IV C-Log Update: All video output will still be 8-bit. Sampling for DCI 4K will be increased to a 5632 x 2970 pixel sensor area resulting in a 1.27x Crop factor. Sampling for UHD will be from a 5472 x 3078 pixel sensor area resulting in a 1.29x Crop factor. Both modes are accurately down-sampled to their final resolutions. Existing frame rates will remain the same. The current 1:1 4K sampling mode will remain an option for situations benefiting from the 1.78x Crop factor. There will also be new full-sensor 3K modes added including 60fps and HDR 24fps.Both will use a line-alternating sampling method, so quality will be inferior to the improved 4K format (but better than the existing FullHD 1080p format.) It is unclear whether the file resolution in the final firmware will be the full 3360 x 1890 format or down-sampled to 3072 x 1728. FullHD 1080p will also use this 3K full-sensor mode with down-sampling for a noticeable improvement in perceived resolution. FullHD 1080p will also receive a modest frame rate boost to 72/75fps. The EOS 5D Mark IV will gain the XF-AVC file format at 120Mbps (4:2:0) and 200Mbps (4:2:2). Both formats should require low enough data rates to accommodate UHS-I U3 type SD Cards. Reports relating to a possible service job for the 5D Mark IV are the result of the heat sinks on current units not performing well in some environments when used with the newer firmware. This is because of the increased processing load from the enlarged video sampling area. Newer units will ship with an improved heat sink while existing 5D Mark IV units can be retrofitted. Pricing is unconfirmed for that servicing. The newer firmware will still work in non-serviced cameras, but this may result in premature temperature warnings.

    Jcs, the video looks good! The C300 II is a high quality beast. Skin tones look really good. Sound is really good. Well done. By the way, it is an important topic which affects many people. Cheers.
  18. Simon Shasha, if people would research, they'd see the truths in your comments about Syria. By the way, I used to go to a Syrian barber. We used to have very good conversations. I understand the plight of the Syrian people. People, who I know from the Middle East, have expressed similar stories as to what you have explained too. Below is a very interesting video by an expert. If people are open to understanding they should watch the entire video. Cheers.
  19. Syrian War....... Interesting Video. Perhaps watch.....
  20. Paul Joseph Watson's take.......
  21. Woozie, I'm optimistic and hopeful that the USA will prosper. Another take below. She's eye candy to watch - oops I'm not politically correct. Cheers.
  22. My gut is thinking the USA will do very well under Trump's leadership. A person can keep whining and make excuses as to why he is in office, however, there comes to the point to support the man and hope for the best. Only time will dictate the truth. Speaking of media - Rebel Media (independent)...Trump stands up to a Saudi Prince. Interesting. 5 minute video.
