Yet another Magic Lantern raw test! This time I've replaced the completely unreliable Komputerbay card for a Lexar card. Now things are running smoothly.
I'm blown away by the sharpness and quality of this raw footage. I tweaked white balance, fill, recovery, black level, hue, sat, and added sharpness via Adobe Camera Raw. So it's not right out of camera, but I definitely didn't stress over the color corrections (even though the image could be pushed really far). I took these samples very non-chantly while Meag and I ate our meals outside in downtown Keene, so it's still not quite a stress test of the firmware. I did manage to hit an error after I filled the card—the LCD on the top handle was reading out as if I had space left on the card, until I rebooted (then it fixed itself to say "0"). Not only that, but 32GB (all I could afford without gambling on another Komputerbay card) only gets you 7 minutes of footage, which really adds up, even for b-roll.
I've uploaded the ProRes422HQ file to get the best quality possible on Vimeo. My workflow was as follows:
-Record 1920x1038 @ 23.978 (FPS override) to Lexar 32GB X1000
-Run files through RAWMagic
-Import to After Effects (command+i, direct to the first .dng file, tweak parameters in the camera raw module, import as sequence)
-Interpret footage from 30 to 23.978 (right click on file to see the option...I'm not sure why it default interprets as 30p)
-Render to ProRes422 HQ
-Import into Premiere, cut, export ProRes422HQ
