I usually set a flat setting for recording video, then use a white balance card within the vicinity of the model product and WB the camera. Then do some test shots and see how it comes out. It may als
T3i HDMI out with ML Shuttle 2 won't record no signal

Hi all, The subject is the truncated wording.. basically I have a T3i, Magic Lantern 2.3, HDMI out to the Hyperdeck Shuttle 2. I confirmed that the T3i hdmi out feeds in to my 8" monitor just fine. It

Hi, I figured out that the HDMI out feeding into my monitor was 1080i60. Despite what I changed on the camera internally, it always output 1080i60. That is one of the recording formats though for the

May be a bit late, but if you have the option of HDMI out, you can use something like the Atomos Ninja (bit expensive) or the Hyperdeck Shuttle 2, which will record to ProRes or DNxHD on SSD drives. T

Like others said, a juicelink or something would be good before feeding in to the camera. If you can, something like the Tascom DR-40 60, H4n H6 would be good, because it's external audio and much bet

It depends on what you want. The BM 2.5K camera is a fantastic deal right now... Why Well, the BM Pocket camera is $995 but with a 1080P potential CinemaDNG RAW 10-bit recording. However, for 2K, the

Agree with the other poster unless you maybe have a 300mm 2.8 zoom or better, so that you can zoom in without light changing. Then use sports mode to utilize quick shutter speeds to capture those spec

Yes.. you can. The Canon t2i, 3ti, 4ti, and 5ti put out a 1080i60 signal, as I recently learned on my t3i. What you do is go into video mode, and do NOT record. The HDMI out live mode is 1080i 60. Usi

To be clear, if I take the original source h.264, sync audio, cut it up a bit to get just the parts I need, there is no way to just save it without re-compressing it again What if I save the project i

No..it's purely video. However, when RAW CinemaDNG is added to the camera in a future firmware, you should be able to grab individual frames I would think.
