    Filmmaking friends,

    Welcome to the home of what (I hope) will be a helpful and constantly-updated resource, the Free DVXUser Guide to Magic Lantern RAW for the Canon 5D-series cameras. (We have a lot of love for 60D, T2i, and other cameras, but we had to narrow our focus to the full-frame cameras to get things started.) This will (eventually) be a complete and comprehensive guide to using ML RAW firmware, from installation, to shooting, to editing, to the final output.


    At the moment, we've got about 40 pages of Magic Lantern goodness to get you going. The current version covers installation, setup, and basic shooting with ML Raw. There are links to the firmware and apps you'll need, troubleshooting tips and tricks, and a complete break-down of the key settings and menu items you'll want to know about. Here's the link to the current version…

    http://www.dvxuser.com/guides/ml_raw...5DIII_full.pdf

    We're busting arse right now to get the additional sections completed, which include Advanced Techniques with ML, Key Accessories, and Workflows/Editing. We'll be shooting some how-to videos on every topic we can think of, so bear with us as we get those shot and posted over time. Basically, we want this to be something you all find invaluable as you shoot with ML RAW.


    Keep in mind this is a work in progress, and will continue to be "in progress" for as long as there are updates to the ML firmware. I'll do my absolute best to keep it updated with new information, new workflows, and other cool new stuff as it develops. But I'll need your help to do that. Where you see things that can be improved, please let me know (via PM). When things in the ML world change, but change isn't reflected in the User Guide here, let me know and I'll get to it as quickly as I can. We want your suggestions, your ideas, and most of all, your help. This isn't going to be perfect, but we hope it's helpful, and best of all…it's free. So you won't be out any cash if you think it sucks.

    And it goes without saying that big, big thanks go out to the folks at Magic Lantern for making all this possible. You can always find the very latest information and firmware builds on their site…

    Finally, thanks to the members who have helped (and will continue to help) put this together. I owe each of you a beer.

    I'm going to sticky this thread, but let's try to make sure it doesn't take discussion away from the many other ML threads we have going. Keep those other threads going, and try to use this one only for suggestions on how we can make this even better.

    And please, share this. Send it around. Let people know it's here.


    Cheers, and shoot it up!

    I've just posted an updated PDF (same link above) that includes a quick-start guide for the 5D2, as well as a complete step-by-step install guide for the 5D2.


    Sorry for the delay on the workflow section. It's taking longer than originally anticipated.

    A1ex recently found the raw buffers on the 7D, with this developement, the 7D suddenly moved from LimboLand to the fore.
    Right now its already capable of shooting raw in burst mode, this is a similar development path as the 5D.

    New modules are being added and developers are scrambling to compile the raw_rec module to allow the 7D to offload the Raw buffer
    to the CF.
    I have high hopes on the 7D as A1ex did a benchmark and the write speed is fast. Faster than the 5D mkII.

    Another good thing going for the 7D is, just like the 5DmkIII, it can shoot DUAL ISO, this trick done by Alex has increased the DR on this cam.
    If it also get ported to the raw video module, that would make the 7D awesome. -again.

    Once the modules are stable we'll try to include an updated guide to include the 7D.

    I've updated the Guide (same link above) with the new workflow section, including a complete (I think) tutorial on using Resolve. Enjoy!

    Stephen, thanks for all the hard work that went into making this guide. I spotted a couple of errors and I just wanted to let you know about them.

    1. Ok, this one is pretty huge because it could be dangerous. Why does your guide say to install the ML firmware in movie mode and where did this guidance come from? With every other Canon DSLR and every other Magic Lantern build, the guidance from the developers was always to only install with the camera set to M in photo mode, not Liveview and not in Movie shooting mode. I cannot find any reference to this "Make sure your camera’s mode dial is set to Manual, and that the LiveView switch is set to the Movie Camera icon." anywhere other than your guide.

    2. You say to set the still photo mode to s3 jpeg, but the latest guidance is to set it to raw for best results with ML raw video on the 5D3.
