Possible to record raw ml footage to ssd from hdmi on canon 5d2?


Peter Rzazewski

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at buying some 1000x  and up CF cards for my canon 5d2 to record raw (via magiclantern firmware) and came across some info about recording from hdmi and even a cf>ssd interface instead of cf cards. These CF cards are expensive and fill up fast. SSD makes more sense given that a decent 500gb ssd is only $250. Anyone have some experience with non cf card recording?

Unfortunately no. You can't. You'll have to make do with fast CF cards.

I don't believe that's necessarily true. There are cf>ssd readers and I'm pretty sure I've heard of people doing HDMI recording using external recorders like the Atomos Ninja 2. I'm just curious if it's as good/better than CF raw recording while using magiclantern.

You can't output the raw data over the hdmi port in the Canons.

 

There has been a lot of talk about cf to ssd adapters in the beginning of the ML raw uprising, but never heard success stories. The CF/SSD adapters are pretty slow actually. If someone got it working by now it'd be all over the front page here and where not I think...

It's unfortunate but it's true, you can't record the raw data to anything other than CF cards. And yes, you can record 4:2:2 8bit uncompressed video [not raw] to an SSD recorder (Atomos/etc) through the HDMI port, but yet again even that is not possible with the mk II since it doesn't output a clean signal. The 7D, mk III and 1Dx/c can though.

      Shot this promo back in August on a 5D3.

      Using a Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 and a Canon 70-200 f/2.8

      It was professionally graded in Baselight Studio, the colorist was very surprised when he found out what it was shot on.

      Let me know what you think or shoot a question!

      Hello!
      Here is a short film I shot and directed called "It's My Party" (if you couldn't tell from the big pink letters). I just posted it online Monday and I'm looking for feedback. After my last film which was 20 minutes long and about 10 different locations, I wanted to get back to something more simple that focused on character rather than plot. Anyway, if you have a few minutes check it out and let me know what you think. I hope you enjoy it!

      We went out to test a DIY rainmachine on top of a tractor. Learned a ton of shit, like backlighting is a must for rain and that the 5d mark III can indeed get waterdamaged (cost me 380 euros to repair it). Also that igniters for explosions can also freak out when they are under water.
