5d Mark iii raw recording


Recommended Posts

Hello fellow EOS users i have had a 5d mark iii for sometime now, and I finally have all the necessities to use the magic lantern rare recoding function. I have downloaded the recommended firmware, and followed the guidelines of the EOSHD_G3_RAW Guide. I have downgraded the firmware to 1.1.3, formatted my cards with the exFAT file system, installed the magic lantern alpha, and then installed the magic lantern night build, as well as the mac-boot to prepare the cards to make them bootable. After all this was said and done and after I hit update firmware, My camera screen said, Firmware update program. Update file cannot be found, please check the memory card and reload the battery and try again. I am using a 64 GB compact flash UDMA 7 LEXAR Professional 1000x CF card, and a PNY Professional X 64GB class 10 SD card. Can anyone give me some insight to what I might be doing wrong?!!!!!!

The Problem occurs every time after I Delete the previous ml-5d3-113.fir file from the card, copy the 

autoexec.bin (the auto-boot file and compiled source code),
5D3-113-bootflag.fir, and the ML folder which overwrites the alpha folder already present. Then I turn on the camera and try to update firmware, and it says!!!!!

Firmware update program


Update file cannot be found, please check the memory card and reload the battery and try again.

You must us a card that is 32 GB or less to do the initial install of ML anything larger won't work. Once the firmware is updated you may use any size card you like.


"For first install, use a simple SD/SDHC/CF card (32 GB or smaller). 64GB cards and larger will not work for first install (but you can use them with ML, see below)."

      I single-handedly shot an entire narrative short film during the first lockdown, using the original BMPCC. The camera performed magnificently but I did have it fully rigged out. Shot using two SLR Magic primes - 10mm T2.1 and the 17mm T1.6. A one-person crew and one-mother cast, this is a film featuring my poor mum, who’s never acted, and a very, very unlikely hero…

      Jean-Luc Godard once said “All you need for a movie is a gun and a girl.” My mum doesn’t speak very good English, so I had to do without dialogue. I didn’t have a gun so we had to do without that too. We couldn’t leave the house, so I shot it all there. And I had no crew to help me, so I did everything myself.
      If anyone has any feedback or questions I'm always happy to hear!

      Hey all! I want to share this trailer for Sennheiser's Pro Talk Season 2 I shot using a Sony FS7, A7iii and A7sii.
      Two weeks before the shoot I decided I wasn't happy with my current slog3 workflow and wanted to change it up. I found Pro Color V3 (at the time, V4 was not out yet) and gave it a shot. I loaded it up on the A7sii and A7iii, barely made a few tweaks to both to match them up, give me a great result and bam. I was sold. I then created a preset in FCPX (yea I edit on FCPX for now) that took my FS7 slog3 footage and popped it into Pro Color V3 matching the other two cameras perfectly. So my new flow is like this, Pro Color on the A7 series cameras and the FS7 shoots slog3, I then match the FS7 to the A7 series cameras in post and work from there. The reason why I needed Pro Color in my life was because I had these beautiful little A7 series cameras but couldn't use them to their full (small) potential shooting slog3. I didn't want to have to tote around an external monitor, etc. There's a lot more to say but I'll leave it at that. Way more to come. Enjoy.

      Hey all, jumping right in here on the forums to share my work shot using Pro Color!

      I've come from the Canon world but now love my Sonys. Pro Color was a God-sent and I am fully embracing it!
      More to come but in the meantime please see this short video of a buddy of mine fishing shot handheld on the new Sony A7iii using a Nikkor 35mm f1.4 ai-s and 105mm f2.5 ai-s. V3 Pro Color was installed on the camera as at the time of filming V4 was not yet out. I applied a Lut of mine, Tenkara, you can grab from my website.
      Thanks Andrew for making these killer profiles!
