I have this same question. Most of the examples I see online show resolutions I don't seem to be able to get even with the experimental 10-bit builds. For example this article on this very site shows resolutions like 1792 x 762 on the 6d and even 70d. I finally discovered it's with experimental builds for 10-bit but even with that neither camera can do continuous above 1600 x 680 give or take. In most of the sources there doesn't seem to be mention of the sd_uhs hack so I feel like I'm missing something somewhere.

Any help would be very greatly appreciated.

I think I figured it out eventually, but I can't recall what it was unfortunately, so sorry I can't be of more help.

I do have a vague recollection that they are available in a different menu/mode?

I played around a bit more and noticed that in a particular view of the resolutions it said something at the bottom about using left / right on the directional pad to fine tune the adjustments. I'm not near it at the moment so don't recall the wording or which screen it was on (it wasn't all of them that allowed resolution adjustments, just one I think). The directional buttons allow you to cycle through the "in between" resolutions.

That sounds vaguely familiar! Awesome you found it :)

How are you finding ML?

There are many people who prefer it, even to the BM cameras.

Honestly so far I'm not sold on it. On paper it seems amazing and in lots of ways it is, but practically speaking for me it's not a game changer... yet. Being limited to odd crop sizes and limited frame rates (i.e. hard to get decent res at 60fps) is not great. Fully understand the hardware limitations all the ML contributors have to work with. The effort and ingenuity being put in to work around the limitations is amazing but I need more time with it to see if the downsides and extra workflow elements is worthwhile for me.  So far it seems like if the scene is exposed properly there isn't a massive noticeable difference in the final footage with raw vs the default h.264. But again I need more time to fine tune the settings and figure out the best workflow.

I think it's also due to your personal preferences.  There are a group of people on this forum that really appreciate the image from the original BMPCC and another group that don't rate it as being particularly special.  Because of that difference, some people are willing to put up with the quirks and weaknesses of the camera, and others opt for better all-around performers as the 'downgrade' in image quality is worth it for the ease of use for them.
I suspect ML is the same.  Some absolutely adore the image and others don't.  It also depends on what body you're shooting, what lenses you have, and what particular features you're interested in using.  I really appreciated the 3x crop mode which turned my 55-250mm lens into the 35mm equivalent of a 264-1200mm zoom, and combined with the nice IS of that lens, it was even usable at 1200mm!  Now I have a GH5 and the 3x crop mode of ML is still something I miss a little bit.

heyyyyy yallll

so its been a while since the big 3.5k ML April Fools *Not A Joke* reveal and i feel like things kinda stagnated with all that

are these higher k modes useable now? has there been any recent progress?

sadly,

Kaylee
