Hi all I am new here, and still looking to buy the right equipment for me. I am used to record video in 2.7K and 60fps. This is to me the smallest format that still looks very good on a 4K TV. But it is a must for me to record with 60fps, i get frustrated by the vibrations when looking at video recorded in 30fps and the camera is turning to follow an animal or just giving a panoramic view of the divesite. Sony has for long used 4K with 30fps at 100mbit and yes they have had a lot of heating problems, but on their new mirrorless cameras it should no longer be a problem. Now that it works it should not be a challenge for them or most other brands to set the software up for 2.7K with 60fps, the power usage should be about the same. Does anyone know why they do not include this format at all? Not even in 30fps. Is it possible to inform Sony and the other brands that it would be a good investment as it would make their existing cameras able to record 60fps just with a firmware update? I hope you will join the debate and maybe send a msg to Sony, Canon and so on.
I just bought an Olympus OMD-EM1. The firmware on it, out of the box, is V3.1. The latest firmware available from Olympus is V4.1. When I go to update the firmware, the site tells me I have the latest version and that my camera is up to date (although my camera still says it is V3.1). Any suggestions on how to fix this? PS - will all my customized setting go away when I eventually do figure out how to upgrade? Thank you!
First of all, I have to put this disclaimer: This is still a hack of the Canon firmware and there's a possibility that you can damage your camera. Canon will NOT honor warranty on firmware fried cameras if using non-Canon firmware. SO CAVEAT EMPTOR and understand the risks. I first have been trying the latest version of Magic Lantern V2.3 on the 5D2 for a week before delivering it to its new owner and it has impressed me. All the features I wish I had on the 5D2 is now in this firmware, including the intervalometer, zebra, focus peaking and HDR mode. While the sensor performance doesn't even get close to the 5D3, it does certainly breath new life into the 5D2 (which is discontinued) and other Canon DSLR. Best of all, many of these new functions can be used in Photo mode as well, displaying it after the pic is taken. The one feature I most look forward to using is the intervalometer, which Nikon users have. There's an exposure ramping mode where the timelapse will correct for exposure without turning night into day due to metering issues and there're even sunset/rise modes. Here's an example: [vimeohd]44372899[/vimeohd] Another tool is the automatic HDR bracketing, which I'll just show the video below, what is possible: [vimeohd]36863089[/vimeohd] I didn't have too much time but I can't wait for the 5D3 firmware to be available. I may just go get a 60D just to start shooting! Remember, this is still a hack so understand the risks! Enjoy
