The only missing link for  me, a Mac user, is converting the files into DNG. Is there a Mac option for this? 

 

Yes Mac option is in the guide, it is Raw2DNG. Same app as windows, but runs on mac. Just make sure to run the correct file. The windows app has .exe at the end, the Mac one doesn't.

Hi Andrew,

Before doing all this, did you first install Canon's firmware update?

 

Yes I did, for uncompressed HDMI.

 

It came straight back off again.

 

If you have 1.2.1, simply download the 1.1.3 firmware...

 

Both Mac and Windows firmware downloads are included in the ZIP.

Apply the 1.1.3 firmware on the camera as normal, as per Canon instructions. It rolls back from 1.2.1 to 1.1.3 just fine.

Thanks for making this tutorial, reading through the forums trying to figure out how install it was just too much for me haha.

 

Alright so after making the CF bootable using MacBoot, I put it into the 5D3, run the firmware update and then is says "EnableBootDisk :)". Is that supposed to happen? and if so what do i do next? Cause if I try to hit the trashcan button it doesnt do anything.

Thanks Andrew, I see the Raw2dng for mac now. However, when I drag the raw files on it, I get this error. 

 

 

usage: dirname path
Error: /Volumes/MyDrive/dngls: *.dng: No such file or directory
Nothing converted
 
I tried creating a directory named dngls as it appears to be looking for that, but that didn't work either. Do the raw files and Raw2dng have to be located in a particular place to work?

Ahhhh my bad, makes sense haha

 

But everything works perfect now, the quality is ridiculous!

 

Seriously... Thanks!

 

Just to clarify something... You rebooted after the bootflag message, and Magic Lantern was at that point installed and booted, with menus available?

When i first commented, i just shut the camera off after getting the "EnableBootDisk :)" and then once i saw your reply i simply turned it back on and everything was up and running

Cinema 5D is finding it faster to use ACR in Photoshop to TIFF and then assemble in QT7Pro like we'd do a time-lapse.

Before I order cards I'm currently waiting for:

 

1) stable build

2) record time only limited by memory (>4GB)

3) no dropped frames with 1000x cards @1080p24

 

I'd like:

 

4) Simultaneous H.264 proxy recorded to SD card, for take review, sound, etc.

5) Simultaneous HDMI out, ideally 8 bit 422 uncompressed as an option, or mirroring of onboard LCD

6) I assume the other ML goodies still work like peaking

7) High quality internal codec option instead of RAW
