*** INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS AND WORKFLOW BELOW ***
All was show in RAW, 1080x512, ISO 1250 and 2500. 5DM2 is not as good with noise as 5DM3. I applied noise reduction (25) in Camera RAW in most cases.
I used a 400X Sandisk CF card 8Gb (60 Mb/sec).
I was only available to record 1080x540 and sometimes 1080x720.
The image is very nice and gradable. I tried to expose to the right at all times.
Lens used: Samyang 35mm f/1.4 (Magic Lantern's RAW recorder crops the image though if you don't shoot 1080p)
I just ordered a Komputerbay 1000x 128Gb card!!!!
I also used a Kamerar Cinema Skater Dolly System.
What the guys at ML did is just amazing!! The workflow is painful, as any other RAW workflow!!!!
--- INSTALLING THE FIRMWARE ---
***** I AM NOT AN EXPERT, AND I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT YOU DO WITH YOUR CAMERA. PLEASE BE CAREFUL ****
This is what I did:
1- Make sure you have the latest STABLE Magic Lantern firmware 2.3 for Canon 5D MK2 (note that you need Canon's firmware 2.1.2 installed and a Compact Flash card reader):
2- Now, you can install the "raw rec" module, that allows RAW recording.
Choose the latest build (currently it is July 21st). It includes 2 items a) an AUTOEXEC file that must be placed in your card's root dir. b) a MODULE folder that goes into the ML folder.
3- In order to activate the raw rec module in camera, go to the "M" under Magic Lantern's menu (the right-most menu item) And choose to load modules. Then, you will find the raw rec options under the movie menu.
Choose resolutions wisely.
5- The raw rec module generates ".RAW" files that must be converted to a DNG sequence. For this you need the program "raw2dng". If you are a Mac user there is a user friendly GUI version here: bitbucket.org/600dplus/magic-lantern-things/downloads/raw2dng.app.zip
6- You can open the sequence in After Effects or Lightroom, for instance. Davinci Resolve is not able to read sequences that are not CinemaDNG.
Let me know if it worked!
