Do we need a permit to fly this type of quadcopter in remote places like Socorro Islands or Cocos? There is a military base in Socorro so I really hesitate if I should bring one there. By the way, have you guys experienced any trouble with the customs of Mexico when bringing this quadcopter? Thanks.

Hi Richard, I have just finished a trip to Cocos with a 5D3 Magic Lantern setup and I am really pleased with the result.

My workflow : ML Raw -> DNG (Rawanizer) -> Import into After Effects and grade with ACR (don't abuse shadow/highlight or you will get flickering) -> Render to Quicktime mov (Codec: Avid DNxHD) -> Import into Premiere Pro to edit.

With ML Raw I used neither a red filter nor MWB.

How about Gopro 3 in a Hugyfot Housing? 3 meter cable should be just about right and you can monitor what you are taking with the original LCD Bacpac in a separated housing.

Thanks guys, I just gone ahead to buy some magic filters for my Tokina 10-17 and 17-40.

I will also use this setup in a dive trip very soon and I am a bit nervous too, just in case if the camera lock up underwater...I will have no way to take the battery out underwater and I may fry my 5D3, hope that it won't happen. :aggressive:

If you shoot ML raw no. There are ways to expose the footage and help with highlight details and reduce shadow noise by shooting ETTR (expose to the right). Difficulty with this is when you get too close to the surface highlight clipping will be difficult to avoid even stopping down . I am planning to mod an V. ND with a gear ring to control from the port. 







Thanks David. But I meant white balance. If yes then I will keep the WB setting at outdoor-daylight and tune the WB in post. Exposure I am thinking to use Auto ISO and AE lock.


By the way, have you guys been able to shoot in 1920 x 1080 30p? I have tried Lexar and Komputerbay 1000x 64GB cards but the

best reliable resolution that I can get is just 1728 x 972. 1856 is fine in normal mode, but pink weird frames appear in 3x crop mode. Still thinking if I should get a Sandisk Extreme Pro (VPG65) or the new Lexar 1066X as I really want to have a reliable 128GB card.
