I'm experiencing an issue where the top and bottom black bars disappear when I begin recording. If its not recording it appears there with all the camera information. Only goes away when recording begins for MLV. When I switch to h.264, it does not experience this problem.
I'm on the 5D123 04-27-15 build. I'm using lexar 1066 128gb cf cards.
The big issue here is that without those black bars at the top, I can't exactly tell where the top of the picture ends. I did not realize this after a few takes and now some of my shots where I framed the talent for the full lcd picture - the top of their heads are cut off. Is there any way possible to salvage this?
I've attached a photo of the live view before and after it records mlv.
I don't know if this is related to this issue, but during my shoot I started major issues with dropped frames. This generally began happening at around the 2 minute mark. So, I attached my read/write speed numbers.
Is there a setting that is affecting this? Please let me know any other information I can provide.
