  1. Hi guys!! I shoot with a 50D in h264, iso 400 and 800 top. Is not a camera for low light, but well feed with light, and it renders sunlight beautifuly, the grain is like film! I should post some screenshots or a little of the documentary iam making. I had the oportunity to use the panasonic g7 and after some tests, it was pretty clear that, for this project, the caracteristics of the 50D were the best... I am amazed!! There are the issues with overheating and no sound what so ever. It fails some times but i would buy a "pro" version of this camera just to be stable. Would really use it a lot more! If some one can "hack" the hardware to get it more stable, i would go for that without blinking!!
  2. This camera is SICK!! WOW. For a HD production, the downscale looks amazing. I wonder who it goes in 2k! I am shooting with a 50D and I have managed to have some great results by nailing the clients expectations. It is time for me to upgrade, so I think my investment will defenetly be in the Panasonic gh4 and for the movies and series production I will wait for some reviews of the KineMAX camera (looks to be a monster!). But have to wait on the last one, to have the best buy possible! Every penny counts... But the gh4 footage looks amazing. And the workflow will be faster and "unmessy" like the Canon RAW (it is easy, but time consuming and sometimes, there is something going wrong at some point in the workflow, and it delays the process at the worst times!) Defenetly a wise buy. And with that "super batery+audiomixer" battery grip, you can do a one man show with a lot of quality!!
  3. Just noticed a new thing.... If I change my ISO levels, the SHUTTER speed gets different values!!  Really dont know what is going on
  4. Really?!? So, i am not being able to work 100% with my camera because the "power button" needs to be "above" ON? oh my god!! And I was almost killing myself because of this!! Just one little thing more if you can help me. I bought a KomputerBay 64GB umda7 1000x card and ive done benchmark testings. it does not go above 53MB/s writing speed. There must be something wrong with the card, or whatelse could be the problem for me to have drop frames? Really tricky to get all things running in this camera!   PS-Even going all the way up in "power button" the only think chaging in "Shutter" is the "Tv" value...  I dont know what is the problem, but my shutter seems to work randomly. When I manage to get it to 47.8 or 54.3 it goes back to 27...   awwwwww
  5. I have done one morning shooting MLV... What is the problem with MLV?  It appears that I have a problem dealing with the SHUTTERSPEED, it looks like it is locked in one value, and whatever I do, it wont change... Dont really know how to work around this. Been in the ML forum and didnt found any answers... I really dont like to be a noob, but im working to "get out" of this skin...  :(
  6. Thank you. I bought the Guide and printed it, just to get everything "on the go" for testing! 8 batteries and 1 komputerbay 64gb and a amazing dit should keep me out for a full day shooting...  Although, I still have some doubts about the crop mode and the aspect ratios! Do I need anamorphic lens to get those amazing results or is just by doing all in Post?  Should I keep the Cinema DNG forever, or convert and delete after?  thank you
  7. The ZEISS company sugests to go with the NOVOFLEX adapters... I am going to buy a Zeiss SLR lens (nikon mount) to fit on a Canon 50D. The lens manufactor told me to get Nofoflex... In theory, they must be the best ones!
  8. Hello EOSHD community, I am new to the DSLR RAW filmaking, and I've been introduced to this "new world" in a time of intense change and breakthroughs in terms of Hardware and Software to the movie making industry. I was used to film with the classic compressed DSLR, when I would press the button, it would record, than I get home, dumped the videos in PREMIERE and than export in whatever I wanted and... DONE! Now I bought the Canon 50D, because I was told that was a really amazing camera with great 14-BIT RAW video capabilities with this Firmware called MAGIC LANTERN... (and than, tragiclantern to get the raw) The thing is, I dont understand 10% of the options that come in the firmware, and the worst part is that I dont know how they are affecting the image!! Besides that, the workflow of getting all those files (thousands of pics) into 1(one) video, I didnt find the way. The MagicLantern forum on this issue is very confusing!! I lost myself reading that because is not very (or any) organized! I really would like to know if anyone can help me get to know the MAGICLANTERN firmware from bottom to top. Get full knowlodge of how it works and what single "spec" change affects what and combined changes affect  what... and so on! I really would love to get the camera and shoot, the best way possible, and, by now, I can't even set it right... If anyone can help me! I would be really thankfull!! I am really a noob   :(  Thank you all very much.  Looking forward to "dominate" the machine!!!!
