1. A couple of more test scenes filmed with the 550D.

    We took the camera and some gears out in the forrest and shot some scenes for proof of concept and to try out the camera more. Nothing was preplanned and the shooting took around 3 hours with us walking around finding good places to film.
    All scenes was filmed hand-held but with holding a tripod for better support. Only used the Canon 1.4 50mm lens for all scenes. Vfx and color-correction was done in After Effects. Filmed in 23.97 fps with a 1/50s shutterspeed at most times. The slowmotion scenes was filmed in 60 fps.

    The last scenes filmed got a bit noise due to the sun was setting and we used a higher ISO. If you dont like looong slowmotion scenes you might want to skip the end part. :)

  2. Tried out Magic Lantern, the custom firmware for the 550D/5D Mark II/60D.

    Followed this tutorial vimeo.com/18035870 by vimeo.com/sawo


    QScale: -15
    ISO: 160
    Lens: ASAHI Pentax-M 50mm f/1.4

    I used 5DtoRGB by Rarevision for converting the files to ProRes422 better than the Canon E1 Plugin for Final Cut Pro.

  3. A step by step installing Tutorial for Magic Lantern 0.2 RC1 on the Canon EOS 550D / Rebel t2i using Windows.

    If you don't know about the project already check it out at http://magiclantern.wikia.com

    We are going through the whole process of updating the Canon firmware, making the card bootable, flashing the ml-firmware, and installing Magic Lantern in the end.

    In case you want to stop using the ML Firmware, be sure to reverse the card from being "bootable" to "non bootable" with EOScard before inserting into your cam.


    Links for the files used in the tutorial:



    and the firmware itself

    I can be in no way held responsible for any harm you do to your equipment.

  4. Some very quick tests with the new build of the Magic Lantern Firmware, implementing the amazing focus-assist feature. Its available from ML Menu - Video - Focus assist.

    Its still in a very early stage, but more than usable by now.


    Release notes by alex (thanks!)

    Known bugs:

    * it's easily fooled by contrast (or lack of it)
    * it may display red markers even if there's nothing in focus

    Implementation details:

    * Only horizontal edges are detected.
    * Only adjacent pixels which fit in an int32 are considered.
    * Threshold: 1% percentile.
    * When recording, HD buffer is downsampled horizontally by 2.


    * Fixed the saving bug (you can now save the Focus Peak setting).
    * Added some kind of color coding (warmer is better)
    * Small optimizations (I'm not sure if they have any effect or not).
