Title: [UNMAINTAINED] Canon 5D Classic Firmware ** Beta 4 **
Post by: coutts on June 14, 2012, 04:54:02 PM
5dc Port Progress
Current state: Open Beta

(http://i.imgur.com/prBqX.jpg)

I started this project months ago, progress has been slow. The reason is that the 5dc is a bit unique. It runs VxWorks, but has a lot of similarities to modern DryOS cameras. As a result, simply porting Magic Lantern or 400plus was not an option, I had to start fresh.
EDIT The 5dc will work on the unified tree! Big thanks to A1ex for the help in making this happen.

Short-term Todo List:
(https://secure.ebenefitspartner.com/portal/images/interface/checkmark-transparent.gif)Blink LEDs from user FIR file boot.
(https://secure.ebenefitspartner.com/portal/images/interface/checkmark-transparent.gif)Enable bootflag for autoexec.bin booting.
(https://secure.ebenefitspartner.com/portal/images/interface/checkmark-transparent.gif)Hijack Canon's GUI task.
(https://secure.ebenefitspartner.com/portal/images/interface/checkmark-transparent.gif)Port BMP routines from ML for screen printing.
(https://secure.ebenefitspartner.com/portal/images/interface/checkmark-transparent.gif)Port menu system from ML.
(https://secure.ebenefitspartner.com/portal/images/interface/checkmark-transparent.gif)Fix fonts to be sized correctly on screen.
(https://secure.ebenefitspartner.com/portal/images/interface/checkmark-transparent.gif)Fix up properties and property handlers from ML.
(https://secure.ebenefitspartner.com/portal/images/interface/checkmark-transparent.gif)Begin porting all non-lv features from ML (intervalometer, audio triggering, trap focus, etc).
. . .

Install Instructions (READ FIRST!!!)
*** Remember, I am not responsible for any damage to your camera. This is BETA software, and I can't predict what could happen. If you are not comfortable with this, then please do not download this firmware. ***
1.) Make sure you are running v1.1.1 firmware (if not, upgrade to it!)
2.) Double check that you are running v1.1.1 firmware.
3.) One more time make sure that you are running v1.1.1 firmware!
4.) Charge battery to 100% and remove any battery grip for the install procedure.
5.) Download the zip file from the link below, unzip all of the files to your CF card.
7.) Launch the firmware update process. If you see any red led, then something went wrong. A solid blue led means that the bootdisk is now enabled. A blinking blue led means the bootdisk is now disabled (if you want to completely uninstall ML). Each time you run the firmware update it just toggles the bootdisk to the opposite of whatever it is currently. The installer FIR will make your CF card bootable for you, no further work required here.
8.) Turn the power switch off and pull your battery to turn the camera off. Just turn the camera on (make sure autoexec.bin and ML directory are on the card!) and you're all set. Press the Trash button to bring up the ML menu.

You only need to run the firmware update to enable the bootflag ONCE. Each time after that will only disable, re-enable, disable, re-enable, etc. the bootflag.

If you have any questions, please read the ML documentation to see if it can be answered before posting here:

Changelog / Release Notes

Beta 4 - 10/13/2012 (see also the announcement (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=1010.msg14825#msg14825))

* All stability tests passed :)

* New stuff:
   - DOF bracketing ( http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=3113 )
   - Flash bracketing (not tested, I don't have a flash)
   - press DirectPrint to toggle MLU
   - RGB zebras and histogram
   - Display saturation (including grayscale preview - if you use UniWB, for example)
   - Exposure adjustment in playback mode (rough approximation)

* Complete feature list:
   - zebras, focus peaking, spotmeter, histogram, waveform, vectorscope (in playback mode)
   - exposure bracketing: shutter, ISO, flash; 2x0.5 ... 9x5EV; auto mode (covers the entire dynamic range).
   - DOF bracketing (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=3113) (changes aperture and shutter while keeping exposure constant)
   - Intervalometer
   - Mirror lockup (shortcut key, or link to self-timer)
   - Flash exposure compensation (-10...+3EV) - not tested
   - Flash / no flash (like in fuji 6500) - not tested
   - Display saturation (grayscale/normal/oversaturated)
   - Fast zoom (one click goes to 100%, like on 5D3/1Dx)
   - Quick erase (like on 5D3)
   - "Ken Rockwell" zoom (press Zoom In after you took a picture, without pressing PLAY)
   - Exposure adjustment in playback mode (very rough)
   - Timelapse playback - http://vimeo.com/48482815
   - In-camera help (press INFO)
   - Benchmark (check read/write speed of the card)
   - Display operating system internals (tasks, free memory)

Basically, this is what we can achieve on 5Dc with our current knowledge. For more, one needs to dig deeper in the firmware and reverse engineer it. The camera is about 7 years old if I'm not mistaken - but simply the fact that it runs a large subset of the same ML code designed for DIGIC 4 cameras, is amazing!

Beta 3 - 10/2/2012
Big thanks to Alex for this release! He found the missing VRAM buffers which enabled a lot of features in playback mode.

Working:
- auto bracketing, intervalometer
- zebra, focus peaking (huge help for this tiny screen!), spotmeter, histogram, waveform
- fast zoom in playback mode, quick erase (well... not quite perfect, but almost there)
- card and focus peaking benchmarks (5Dc's ARM processor is twice as slow as 5D3's)
- custom color palette for ML

Not working:
- RGB tools, bulb, trap focus, AF patterns (very hard or impossible)
- AF options, MLU (easy to fix, just takes time)


Beta 2 - 9/25/2012
- Changed boot code from how it's done in the ROM to how it's done in the firmware update flasher code. My camera boots, hope it works for all other 5dcs too.
- Updated to latest source tree, nothing changed for 5dc though.
- Now included is a FIR file that will only make your card bootable - just run the firmware update and pull your battery when you see the blue LED, your card is now bootable after that.


Beta 1 (initial release)
- Potentially very buggy. Try it out, let me know how it works. Many features are disabled because they don't work yet / will never work (obviously all LiveView features).
What Works:
- Intervalometer
- HDR Bracketing
- Flash Tweaks

thanks  :)

Today the code compiled with menu.c included from magic lantern (well, a modified menu.c, but mostly everything there). That takes care of compiler / linker problems, but the menu doesn't function yet (can't make it draw anything on screen). so, next step is to sort out the drawing problems.

In ML, things are drawn to an "idle" vram buffer (a blank space in memory reserved for ML to draw to), and then copied to the real vram. I need to re-work this because the bmp vram is 720x480 in ML, and only 360x240 in the 5dc.

Maybe will have menu working by the end of this week, hopefully  8)

Many non-lv features from Magic Lantern:
- intervalometer
- zebras and false color (in play mode) [just need to find yuv vram buffers]
- more in-between ISO values (maybe more than what are available)
- trap focus
- custom focus patterns
- display shutter count
- ML debug tools (memspy, propspy, eventspy). I have already ported bmp_hexdump, it has helped me tremendously so far.
? ? ?

Basically most non-lv features from ML.

Since there is non-LV function, then shoot the video, he could not. Am I right? Thank you for your work

Hi coutts! Grait job!
Just a question: do you think it will possible to enable noise reduction for exposure less then 1sec? (C.Fn-02) Would be grait with high ISO
and exposures around 1/20-1/80!
Thanks!

do you think one day it will be possible to get some lv features? I know the processor is probably too slow to encode video but it would be great to have a simple live-view in order to focus easily by night.

thank u very much for ur work

You won't be able to record video on the 5DC since it doesn't have live view mode.

And you can do to be able to set the exposure time more like 30 seconds. For example 2 minutes

Thanx for the effort! The first 5D is still a great camera with unmatched T-Stops and lowlight abilities... so this is definately an interesting step for some of us. Is there any Beta-Firmware available for testing or can we just use the normal trumk (for 60D etc.)?

Post by: coutts on July 01, 2012, 10:26:40 PM
Sorry I haven't had much time to work on this :|
I could release an autoexec.bin (or feel free to compile it yourself from the sources! www.bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern (http://www.bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern)), but not much works yet. Until I finish up fixing the properties, there won't be much to test yet.

I fixed the gui_state property a few days ago and that made the intervalometer work, so now I just need to narrow down which properties work and which don't. The thing bothering me right now is the aperture property (doesn't seem to work right), shutter speed and ISO properties are working so that can be changed from the menu.

Question: should I keep picture styles in the ML menu or hide it since it probably won't provide much more functionality? More or less convenience.

So, any suggestions for what to leave / what to remove for the 5dc would help.

LV mode will not, as far as I know for LV is an additional matrix, and we do not have it

What does an "additional matrix" mean? Isn't LV just a direct reading of 320x240 pixel at a fixed distance directly from the sensor? I thought it was just a software result of getting direct access to cmos readings. Does it need a 2nd cricuit?

BTW do you think we'll be able to get the shuttercount value?

BTW do you think we'll be able to get the shuttercount value?
What I understood (and could also be totally wrong...) is that the camera is like a computer and in the firmware (not sure, maybe it's in the camera and the firmware is just additional programs) there is an OperatingSystem in it (DryOs), that is used by ML.
If in the OS there isn't the software that make what you say ML can't use/do it.
For example 3x zoom in 600D is not portable to other camera because it is only in the 600D firmware.
This means that canon could in theory add LV to 5Dc OS but then are you sure that it's CPU is fast enough to show you a fluid LiveView? I can save .422 file that are 3 times bigger than 320x240 so it's more cpu intensive.
Since we don't know all the hardware specs, this approach is safer because ML use what canon already coded and tested (with the full specs at hand).

for the shutter count I'll believe yes.
Title: Re: Canon 5D classic
Post by: coutts on July 06, 2012, 11:39:15 PM
short term is a no for shutter count. I can't find the property for it yet. Feel free to help me hunt it down :)
But the fact that canon can check the shutter count at its service centers tells me that there is a property recording it somewhere.

Made some progress today: ML is now detecting half press shutter finally :D
I had to hijack a state object (EMState) to see when the shutter was pressed. This is because for whatever reason, only an event for halfshutter unpress is sent by the GUI task. So I had to improvise.


Next I need to find focus confirmation, that will make Trap Focus work.
For HDR / bulb timer I need to find a way to trigger full press of the shutter (PROP_REMOTE_SW2 isn't in the 5dc).
For custom AF patterns I need to find the property for the focus points.


Progressing nicely :)

For the Shuttercountvalue-Topic:   Wouldn't it be possible to dump the whole memory, make a picture, dump again and compare both dumped images? There should be one register altered, but this is just one guess.

the property region of memory can't be observed, it just dumps an empty file. I've found anything past 0x1000000 is invisible to dumps (memory layout is different than dryos). In 400plus they just use a simple pointer in memory to read the shutter value.

I could try that, but I don't have something to diff the 2 dumps. Anybody want to write up a python script? :D

Can you get the shutter count by printing out ioGlobalStdset?

{ int f1 = -1;
   while (f1==-1) { f1=FIO_CreateFile("A:/STDOUT.TXT"); if
(f1==-1) SleepTask(100); } ioGlobalStdSet(1,f1);}

Didn't seem to print anything to that file, interesting. I know there are some printf statements in the ROM, are we using the right arguments for this?

edit:
could be related to this (taken from vxworks documentation):

All tasks will use this new assignment when doing I/O to stdFd, unless they have specified a task-specific standard file descriptor (see ioTaskStdSet( )).

I still need to find a status pointer that indicates focus confirmation, but yes I believe it should still work regardless of that CFn value.

The hunt continues for shutter actuation counter too, searched about 1000 properties yesterday with no luck. HDR bracketing works now, but I need to find PROP_LENS to determine min/max aperture that ML can use. That will fix aperture setting. As it stands, intervalometer and hdr bracketing are the only 2 features that work.

And some disappointing news for focus patterns, I couldn't set any custom focus patterns using the property. Not sure if it's going to be possible now. It just reverted to 0 every time I set something (selecting no AF points). Weird.

Hi,

I have the 5D classic and love it. The only thing I wish would be an AutoISO function in P/Av/Tv mode (even if it is only between ISO 100 and 400), but of course, anything would be great.
I keep my fingers crossed that you manage soon.

unfortunately no :( 5dc is far too old for this feature.

I just tried it, my 5DC is half dead when I make my CF bootable for ML. The all buttons located at the back of the camera does now work (no reaction from LCD nor camera) + the shutter button can focus but won't snap a shot. Pressing the "Trash" button does not display the ML menu.

I followed the instructions on how to install ML + 5DC hack. At first I got a steady blue light and when ML won't work for me I updated the Mod firmware twice to disable then enable bootflag. Same result as before (Half dead state).

And Auto ISO will be the best addition for 5DC as I shoot events more often (light conditions vary)

Oh and my 5DC still works normally, just couldn't get (beta) ML to run.

Keep up the great job!

Sorry about that, this is confirmed an issue now due to the link I had up for making the card bootable. Tomorrow I will make the installer write the bootflags to the cf card (like ML does for other cameras).


Just to clarify, your camera was not bricked there. It is only a "soft brick", pulling the battery and putting a good card in fixes this. I guess the mac program to make bootable cards doesn't write the correct flags.

edit:
i guess it's not working even using the make_bootable.sh script... something is wrong here :(

I have updated the installer FIR included with the download in the original post. It now calls the bootloader function responsible for setting the card bootflags. So, users will not need to worry about making their cards bootable now. Still not sure why this isn't working on some cameras, I need more testers to try and report how it works.

Same issue with me. First time, no rear inputs would work, no info in viewfinder. Removed battery ut in regular card, worked fine. I didn't take the opportunity to disable/re-enable the bootflag by way of firmware update however (how can you do this with a reg card w/no autoexec.bin file?).

not at all, there are way too many differences between the cameras. someone with a 40d needs to port ML to it.

Hey Drew!

I'm still getting the same result as before (soft bricked state).

I'm using a Sandisk Ultra II 2GB CF and on the camera (FR 1.1.1) the only sensible marking I could give is the model = DS126091 (could it be possible that hardware components vary in some?).

I get this flashing thing problem with identical ESC (electric speed control) when some chips are made from a different supplier.

below is the video how I'm installing the latest beta build, hope it helps solve the kinks (somehow)


Still looking forward to the next batch, Keep up the good fight!

If you have problems running it, and you can assist us for one or two hours via chat, please contact Coutts or me via PM.

On some cameras the startup sequence seems a bit different, but on others it works just fine (confirmed) - so, to diagnose this, we need a camera that doesn't work with beta1. We'll add some LED blinking sequences until we locate the point where it freezes.

I need users who test this to please PM me their serial #s (both the DS one and the longer # one), along with telling me if it worked / didn't work for them.

I'm beginning to think maybe there is some new revision in 5ds and only the old ones work.

Hi,
tried this on my 5D, DS126091 - No. 0530309457. The update went well, solid blue LED. Then same problem as some of the above, buttons on the back does not work.
The ML card makes the camera blink twice when inserted, no blink when closing the card lid.
Non ML card blinks once when inserted and twice when the lid is closed.

Great work! Would be nice with some extra features on an old but still really good camera.

It sounds like serial numbers that start with numbers > 092 dont' work, so only the oldest 5dc can run it. Hmm. I need to figure out where the boot process is being held up at in newer models.

I heard there are 2 different kinds of 5D around. The first one had a very poor LCD-Screen which was later replaced by another one (same specs but better). For example described in here (http://forum.mflenses.com/canon-5d-mki-with-bad-lcd-display-what-to-do-t16925.html (http://forum.mflenses.com/canon-5d-mki-with-bad-lcd-display-what-to-do-t16925.html). It could be that there were some minor internal changed made after replacing the screen. This is just an idea, don't know if it's related to your problem with booting on old or new devices.

the problem is this isn't an issue on any other camera, so nobody knows how to fix it (basically how it's been the entire time porting to the 5dc...)

I like your earlier thought

" I need to figure out where the boot process is being held up at in newer models."

Maybe build a version with debugging output for all the boot process actions to a file on the CF card and one of us with the newer model can run it.

I'm still trying to think up a solution, don't worry ;)
The problem is I can't put LED blinks anywhere in that early boot code, or else the camera doesn't boot.
Also, I can't use file i/o until vxworks is initialized so it's way too early in the boot process to do that. hm..

It looks like if your serial number starts with something less than 093, then it will work for you. I just don't get what could be different between 5d classics to make ML not work, if they all use the same firmware version / updates :|

Heres a thought. I use the Canon SDK to write EOS apps and don't quite understand the difference between how that works and how the ML software works. But heres an idea.

If we could write something using the SDK that queries some camera settings and writes to the logfile. We could run it on the old models and the newer models and see what the difference is.

I could write the app but I have no idea what camera configuration settings to look for.


Make any sense? At lease the app could run and connect to the camera and not hang up. Just not sure what we could look for.

What can you do with the EOS SDK?

Its the "official" Canon authorized way to write software for the EOS cameras. You can write software that controls the camera and downloads images - like Zoombrowser and EOS Utility.

But you can't add new/hidden features like ML can.

Hi, coutts
Glad to see this port working.
I've registered there to thank you for your work and please, do not give up.

If you could find any work I can do, I'll glad to help you with this.
I will be able to test the port after I'll buy the 5Dc, I think this month or the next one.

Your work is amazing.
As far as I understand, it will be easier to run ML to 450D, 40D with your port. That's a really good job.

WBR,
Boris.

The main difference is that ML runs with DryOS, instead of just a layer between DryOS and remote computers (like the SDK). ML can intercept remote commands sent to the camera using the SDK. We can really do anything with ML.

The only difference I know between the 5dc models is the screen (i guess they replaced it in later ones). I called a canon tech tough and he assured me that there is absolutely no difference and the serial number isn't significant.

Obviously he didn't know what he was talking about....

Sounds like the others. So, another new new: serial #s can start with 4 as well. So what makes it only work on serial numbers starting with 09 and less (like 08, 07, etc). Hmm..

Just downloaded the latest version of the SDK (ver 2.11) and I see that only models after the 40D are now supported. For the 5D and XTi (the ones I use) it says "Remote Control may work but not supported".

I've got all the earlier versions stored away (that do support the 5d) and I'll dig them out and see if there are any differences where you have to handle the older and newer versions of the 5d differently. There are a couple of sample programs that may provide a clue.

Post by: coutts on August 08, 2012, 03:16:47 PM
I think that if we use g3gg0's cache hack to boot ML, we may be able to make ML work on all 5dc cameras :D

I've been working with him trying to make it work, and also studying the ARM documentation for how it all works. In a nutshell:
The ARM (processor) doesn't read instructions and data directly from the ROM/RAM; rather, it reads them from a cache (to provide a lower latency read method). I don't know many details yet, but essentially when VxWorks reads or writes to/from say address 0x123, the ARM uses 0x123 and applies an index to it, to know where in the cache to look for this value.

So, we can modify this cache to essentially re-write parts of the firmware. So, g3gg0's boot hack works like this:
- Replace the pointer to canon's startup task with a pointer to ML startup task (so canon starts ML startup task instead of its own).
- ML initializes and at the end of the ML startup task it calls the Canon startup task to continue booting like normal.

So instead of re-writing all of the boot code (which appears to be the problem with the 5dc, some cameras work some don't. The ones that don't are halting on the bootcode I have written), we call the camera's normal boot procedure directly and hardly have to do a thing :)

The ARM documentation is actually quite helpful now that I am reading it and not skimming it for key words. We're pretty lucky to have this documentation available to us. The interesting stuff can be found here regarding the Control Coprocessor CP15's registers:

Post by: coutts on August 08, 2012, 03:42:53 PM
I have also learned that the ARM sets up different memory regions with differing permissions in each. Different permissions can be given for user and supervisor mode (ARM mode) for these regions. The permissions can be like this (taken from ARM docs):

(http://i.imgur.com/lrW5i.png)
UNP = unpredictable


Note: from what I have found, the ARM is put into supervisor mode at FF81008C (during early boot) and isn't changed back to user mode ever. I guess it always runs in supervisor mode while the camera is booted/running. The only thing supervisor mode really does is provide a few extra registers to use, so not very important.
Title: Re: Canon 5D classic | *** Beta 1 Now Available For Download ***
Post by: coutts on August 08, 2012, 04:45:11 PM
Here is where the different memory regions are setup. This is one of the early functions called when the bootloader starts:

(http://i.imgur.com/moV2d.png)


It kind of makes sense! Some regions overlap, but the permissions for all are the same so overlapping doesn't mean much.
Region 0 is the total addressable space of the 32-bit ARM (0x0-0xFFFFFFFF).
Region 1 could represent 1gb of RAM area, in the bootloader it references the RAM area as 0x0-0x40000000.
Region 2, not sure about. I know the flag area is at 0xF8000000 so maybe related to that.
Region 3 looks to possibly be the DIGIC Register area, since anything in the 0xC range maps to digic registers (from what we know).
Region 4 is 8mb starting at 0xFF800, sounds a lot like the 8mb firmware ROM :)
Region 5 is 128mb starting at 0x0, I think this is the cacheable RAM area. From strings in the bootloader I think the camera has 256mb of RAM total, and if you look at my notes above it sets only regions 4 and 5 as cacheable, so I think the other half of RAM is uncacheable. There are allocate memory functions for cacheable and uncacheable memory, so maybe this is all related.

Just probing around, don't mind me :P

Region 2 is data flash. this must not be cached else flashing will not work as expected.

I'm confused as to why the ML 50D is part of the discussion. Did you think it would work with the 5D?

To answer your question, I formatted the card I used to install the ML 5D (with my PC) and all works fine now.

I just used a CF-card with ML 50D installed on it (I have to such cards). I figured that since it contained 50D, 60D, etc. fir-files adding the 5D file would work just fine. Also both CF-cards worked fine on both body's prior to adding 5D-files. After adding 5D file to one CF-card both did no longer work on 5D. It acted as I described.

The one I added 5D did not work on either body.
I managed to solve the problem (partially) by follow described steps in your users guide (to go back to canon firmware). It now works on 50D and 5D again. (Formatting my the CF-card on my mac did not work.)

The one I did not add 5D fir-file, still does not work on 5D but works fine on 50D. I guess I'll have to uninstall ML 50D and then re-install it to get it to work on both body's I guess.

Do you think I should also re-install canon firmware on my 5D?

p.s. At a given moment the 100CANON folder got renamed 100NIKON!?

Ah, figured out where the NIKON came from ... i copied it from a very old CF-card that worked on a NIKON ages ago to the new CF-card I had ML 50D and 5D installed on. Since it didn't have ML 50D installed I figured it might work on 5D and it did. Then I started copying the files to the corrupted CF card. I kinda lost it fearing the 5D died I guess ;-)

Andrew needs to answer your question but I think having multiple ML versions on a card that moves between cameras will cause problems - not the least of which is a difficulty in troubleshooting anything.

Especially a beta-version.

WoW I just bricked my 5d :) I guess I'm the first one!
So cool to first even in bad :)

Camera powers on, I can see stuff on small LCD, can change ISO, modes, can change shooting mode. But no Menu, no shooting possible, camera cannot be recognized via USB :(

I was positive firmware  was 1.1.1 (updated some time ago), followed the instruction.

In same time was working on 7d, now it has 2.0.0 and works cool, so I'm just some lame noob :)

Any ideas?

Format the card in your computer. See if that fixes it. What you are describing is what many of the other users described in the forum. As they stated, formatting should fix it.

Good news! I left camera without battery and went to see Bourne movie... came back home and put battery back in camera! It works, FW is 1.1.1
Will try to reformat.

For those having trouble with ML, just delete the autoexec.bin then disable the bootstrapping by re-flashing the firmware provided by coutts.

captcha workaround: after writing your message focus on the message field and press ctrl + a to have a copy of what you just wrote in the clipboard so if you sent the wrong captcha you can simply paste it back :D

the capchas go away after 3 posts i believe, sorry!

As for removing ML, all you really need to do is format the card to delete the autoexc.bin file and make the card non-bootable. the in-camera bootflag can stay enabled and it won't interfere with anything.

Just remove the battery and card from your camera, format the CF card, put battery back in, put card back in and boot it.

andrew,

fantastic early efforts on this!  the print button is begging to be used by CFW haha

just a suggestion unrelated to the firmware, but why not put a paypal donation link/button on the front page with your updates?  i believe paypal will create such a hyperlink for you (if you've ever sold on ebay you'll know what i mean)

makes it much easier for those who want to contribute but can't code to save their lives (like me!)

F.y.i.: 04302055xx works like a charme. I really, really like the Idea for locking up the mirror on a button. But maybe it would be more
versatile to get any CustomFunktion an a Button, so we could assign it with Mirrorlookup or different functions from this menu.

Thumbs up, again! ;)

Great work. I thought I'd try it today so I could use the intervalometer.

Sadly, I also got a soft brick. DS126091 / 232*******

Not sure if it's interesting, but when I first started the camera I hit the "play" button and got the typical "No image" message. However, it was subtly different from the typical screen. It's basically text on a black/dark grey background, as per usual, but was a faint change or gap in dithering about 2/3 of the way down. The overall impression it gave was that there was a horizontal line across the screen.

I turned it off immediately, but nothing worked when I switched it back on(except for top LCD related controls). I assume that part is a shared experience.

New to ML.

This firmware doesn't work on newer versions of the 5Dc. You should probably uninstall it. Its only in beta test right now.

Ones that start with 0 should work OK. But there is pretty much no functionality as this version is just a very preliminary beta-test.

Serial numbers that start with something other than 0 (like mine starts with a 3) it locks up my camera and the back buttons don't work any more.

So it looks like it works on yours (I assume the back buttons work OK) but theres not much in the menu right now.

You'll have to wait until they develop the functionality more and figure out why it doesn't work on the newer models.

WORKS!

Thanks so much!

I'm able to set the config for HDR-Bracjeting, selftimer and intervalometer.

The HDR-Backeting doesn't work with more then +- 2 EV. so if i config 5 frames each 2EVs means: 0 -2 +2 -4 +4. but it only does: 0 -2 +2 BREAK -2 +2.
5 frames each +-1 works! 0 -1 +1 -2 +2 (no break!)

intervalometer doesn't work, or i'm not able to start this function :(
it only takes one pic immediatly! the ist not break für x seconds and only this one pictur.
the counter tells me " pictures taken 0 / 100"

also i don't know how to start bulb mode.

Also i got a problem with the Mirror-Lockup. I can't set this one in the Menu.

the image review functions like Quick Zoom (singelpress => 100%) doesn't work eather.

PS: would it be possible to turn off the function to erase all pictures in the play mode? once deleted all pic i never delete a pciture again at the 5d. only at the computer at home.

Hi  :) I installed ML beta2 on my 5Dc and tried to get it work. (SN:0630...)

-HDR Bracketing
*Doesn't work after selecting 'Frames: Autodetect', i have to restart my 5Dc
*Works for custom frame counts
*'EV increment' works
*'Sequence' works
*'2 second delay' doesn't work, but bracketing works without initial delay
*ISO shifting works

-Intervalometer
*Works only when i select 'take pics like crazy', otherwise it waits after first shot (without initial delay)
*It doesn't work when i select 'take a pic every: *s' or 'start after: *s'
*I think there is a problem with timer clock frequency
*'Stop after: * photos' works
*'Use Autofocus' works

-I have an EZ540 without batteries, so I couldn't try 'flash tweaks'

-'Bulb/focus ramp', 'bulb timer', 'mirror lockup' and 'trap focus' doesn't work on my 5Dc.

Sorry it's a little confusing, but the installer fir should only be run once to enable the camera bootflag, once this is enabled it will stay enabled until you run that FIR again to disable it. The new second FIR file will **only** make your card bootable, it won't touch the camera bootflag. so, this just makes it easier to set up a card for ML.

Hi, Coutts,

Something just come into my mind, but
probably you'd hv know it.

5D & 400D are using the same processor, Digi II,
there were cracked firmwares that enabled a 400D to
use 1/3 ISO settings, ie.  125, 160, 250, 320 . . . . and
extended beyond 400D original ceiling ISO 1600 to ISO 2000, 2500 and 3200
and
some other functions (which I forgot)

See if these kind of source can safe you some time.

Cheers

Whats your priority list for implementing the rest of the ML features - so we get some kind of idea in what order things will be coming?

Great work BTW.

if I can find a way to trigger bulb exposures, we can make bulb ramping work (for timelapse videos). Also, if I can find a status indicator memory address for focus confirmation (value is 0 when no focus confirmation, 1 when there is), then I can make trap focus work.

hdr and intervalometer worked in last build but don't seem to work now, I need to figure that out (some of the back-end has changed since my last release, need to get things back to a working state again).

I'm hard pressed for time so I will try to work on this when I get free time, classes have me pretty busy though. Also i always appreciated donations from users, thank you everyone who has donated!!

New version won't help. According to the instructions long red means something didn't work right - either enabling the bootflag or making the card bootable.

I would try installing again making sure you have the right firmware version to start with.

Good news for you :)

I've got a 5D classic for a week or two, and took a quick glance at this ML port.

Current status:
Working:
- auto bracketing, intervalometer
- zebra, focus peaking (huge help for this tiny screen!), spotmeter, histogram, waveform
- fast zoom in playback mode, quick erase (well... not quite perfect, but almost there)
- card and focus peaking benchmarks (5Dc's ARM processor is twice as slow as 5D3's)
- custom color palette for ML

Not working:
- RGB tools, bulb, trap focus, AF patterns (very hard or impossible)
- AF options, MLU (easy to fix, just takes time)

You can compile it yourself (it's quite easy these days) or ask Coutts to prepare a nice zip for you.

I'm having trouble with the internet connection, so I'll be offline for a couple of days.

Yes, here's only for image review.

Beta 3 might lock-up when pressing buttons too quickly (was visible in stability tests, not noticed in normal usage). Fixed in source tree.

MLU also working now (press direct print to toggle it). Other than that... recent changes contain fine-tuning stuff (e.g. smaller fonts are more readable now). See the changesets for full details.

With these additions, I now feel almost as confortable with 5Dc as with the 5D2/5D3. Except for LiveView :)

hello, and thank you for your work Coutts.
I tried to flash the beta 2 but the 5Dc tells me "update file can not be found. PLease check the memory card and reload the battery and try again" 

do you know why ?

Edit : it is now working, I have a SN beginning with a 1. Thanks Coutts!

I'm getting the same message; how did you fix it?

Edit: Figured it out.  I decrypted all of the files and then moved them out of the subdirectories.  Not sure which change, or both, made the difference though.

Everything thats in the "5dc.ml23.beta3" folder needs to be unzipped and copied into the root of your CF card.

From the instructions: 5.) Download the zip file from the link below, unzip all of the files to your CF card.

I don't care about Shutter Count that much. I don't think, many will invest in a new shutter anyway. So, we use the baby until it dies... which I hope, is still a long time to go.
But:

what about AUTO ISO?

Would still be the absolute Killer function in my eyes! Is there hope?
Thanks for the great work.

Canon metering is totally unreliable in my experience, so I gave up using auto exposure. Good auto ISO can be done in LiveView, based on histogram.

More cool stuff:
- saturation adjustment (including focus peaking with grayscale image)
- timelapse playback
- exposure adjustment in playback mode (extremely rough, but you can raise the shadows a tiny bit)

Pixel format seems to similar to Y411 (6-byte macroblock containing 4 pixels: vyyyuy).

Enjoy, see you next week.

I had never before thought to be part of the team but,
a few days after meeting site, I started reading many posts of the CHDK and ML forums.

One day I saw the outcome of the next election for cameras to be supported and I did not like.
The 40D was not on the list and I really wanted to test the ML in my camera.
I unfortunately only saw the ML in photographs and videos.
I hope to test the ML in my camera before Christmas. Already missing little time but I have not lost hope.
For now I have learned a lot and enjoyed myself a bit.

The staff of the forum seems to me five stars.

Sorry for my ignorance, but what is your point here? While you might not be happy with auto exposure, others might still like it. (like me). But must of all, what do you mean by "Good auto ISO can be done in LiveView, based on histogram"? There is LiveView in the 5D? Why would LiveView help with AutoISO? If I have the time for the histogram, I also have time to change the ISO. Sorry, that I don't get it! Please explain.

Yeah, I'm confused as well. My xTi does a a great job of auto-ISO with the 400plus hack.  Sounds like its not a priority in the ML list of things to do.

Does 400plus run on the 5D? Don't think so.
So why is it that you think Auto ISO is irrelevant for ML on the 5D?

Auto ISO is the single one thing I will run ML on my 5D for.

I'm only suggesting that it was of importance to the 400plus developers but is not to the ML developers.

I never said that 400plus would run on the 5D. I was using it as an example of how auto exposure (that works well) could be accomplished on Canon cameras by a third party developer.

Take time to research what you are doing, this isn't something I would just dive into / start running code. That's a fast way to brick your camera.

It's taken me 2 years to learn what I know now, with countless nights without sleep (pulling 40+ hours sometimes without sleep working on ML). If you are serious about helping, I will help you as I don't have the time to work on ML every day now. it would be nice to have someone else working on the 5dc.

I'm getting the EOS M here in a few weeks, so once that comes I will be diverting my time to porting ML to that instead of the 5dc.
Title: Re: Canon 5D Classic Firmware ** Beta 3 **
Post by: xnor on October 05, 2012, 11:02:43 PM
Well, that's exactly what I was up to do - have a first look at the documentation and the source to get a feeling how Auto ISO could be done. Possibly output a "Hello world" on the camera. Thing like this should definitively not be rushed. :-)

I wanted to take a deeper look into ML for some time now, at last I now have a reason to do so. :-)

I gave up a few months ago, sold my 5dc and got a 5d Mk 2 instead. ML works like a dream now. Please consider that Coutts was great enough to give so much of his time on this project without forcing money out of people. And this is an open project as I recall so people can continue what others have started, No Bashing is allowed (for some people at least show some respect and stop whining).

in any case I would suggest trying the CF card trick and see if that would kick ML to start on the 5DC.

I'm looking forward the 7D ML now :)

side note: 5dc metering is awesome, the reason why it looks under exposed is that it's using a full size sensor, meaning it's taking in more light to balance the exposure computations and that is why there is a function called exposure lock. Yeah sometimes Auto ISO can be useful but never make a habit of relying on it when shooting. Practice makes perfect, It's always the skill that matters not the tools

We don't blame anyone doing software for free. How could we? We love coutts!! We just want him to know that we'd miss him.  ;) Your move to the 5DM2 is your own decision, but the attitude "I don't own a 5D Classic anymore, so I don't care about the ML5DC" is not a nice sign. I think most of us could do the same step but we love the fullframe 12MP and that's the reason we would like to advance the 5D. And 7D.... who needs a cropped cam?  8)
Title: Re: Canon 5D Classic Firmware ** Beta 3 **
Post by: valadorf on October 08, 2012, 11:22:08 PM
@vscd

technically I wouldn't be around if I'm not interested with the 5dc ml development. It's already working on the mk II since the beginning so I decided to switch to the correct hardware and there's a lot of people who loves both cameras even cropped (I for one) when ultra busy events 8fps burst from the 7d is invaluable, as of yet, full frames only has 5-6fps maybe because of the weight of the mirror or its brittleness due to its size, I don't know. To answer your question as who needs ML on cropped cams I guess the rest of the 40D, 60D, 500D, 550D, 600D, 1100D and of course 7D users out there including me :D

Oh and I think it was markus who was whining about Coutts not going to finish on the 5dc.

Post by: a1ex on October 13, 2012, 08:16:14 PM
Tomorrow, my 5Dc will go to its rightful owner, so... probably it's time to post a beta 4 (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=1010).

It was compiled from the same code base used for 7D alpha 1 (http://www.magiclantern.fm/whats-new/104-releases/140-first-7d-alpha-released), it feels quite solid on my 5Dc (although I didn't shoot anything serious with it, just ran built-in stability tests that simulate random button presses), and it basically contains all the features I could port without significant reverse engineering efforts.

For more stuff (e.g. bulb exposures, trap focus or shutter count), one should dig deep inside the firmware. None of the tools from my current arsenal was able to find those, so it's probably hard - probably as hard as the 7D port :)

Auto ISO needs to be implemented from scratch or ported from 400plus. For me, the only auto exposure that I consider good enough is the one that exposes to the right. And from what I know, this is not possible to get with current hardware outside LiveView - not even on 5D3. If you disagree, just tell me how ;)

That's it - the 5Dc was quite fun to analyze, lots of internals are simpler and can be understood, but... it has some severe limitations. ML code is open, there are both free (http://magiclantern.wikia.com/wiki/GPL_Tools/ARM_console) and paid (https://www.hex-rays.com/cgi-bin/quote.cgi) reverse engineering tools, anyone can look inside and continue to experiment, there are firmware addons for 350D and 400D from where you can learn and borrow features... you only need time, skills and the desire to innovate.

I hope this update will effectively turn your 5Dc into a new camera (well... without LiveView).

Enjoy!

where is the ramping for the intervalometer like in Beta 2 (or 3?) ?

how should i do timelapse without that function?
AV an TV is flickering to much. M Mode without ramping is good für sunrise an sunset :(

I would like to include 5Dc ML to EOScard options (in 'Ports in progress' section) to automatically install ML to the card.For this I need a permanent link to the ML zip or a permanent link to a text file which contains the actual link to the ML zip.
Is this possible to present one of this when you make a new version?


Edit: Nevermind, I made it.  :)

For the 5D Classic, would you please add the False color feature as I find it very handy to check portrait exposure
when using TTL flash under backlight situation. It is amazing! The exposure would be spot on and much less
post-production work :)  Tks!

I'll look into that when I get time :)

By the way, beta 5 will be coming this week with updated boot code. g3gg0 and jplxpto made the cache_hack boot method work on the 40d, so I'll be adopting that to the 5dc (and fix some bugs I found over the weekend using ML).

The instructions aren't too clear.

On your first install you need to do the firmware update with the file named "5dc.111.card bootable.fir" in the root of the card
This makes your card bootable
next you have to do the firmware update with the "5dc.111.ML install.fir" file (as well as all the other ones needed for ML)
This installs the ML bootflag.

There is no message that it was successful. The blue light should come on steady - like the instructions say. Then you have to remove the battery to re-boot the camera.

Blinking light means something wasn't installed properly.

I'm not sure what the camera does if you do the upgrade firmware process with 2 fir files in the root of the card.
after copying all the files over there, I made sure there was only 1 fir file each time when I did the firmware upgrade process and it worked for me.

Okay, that makes sense - I will give a try later today. Indeed I did this with two files on the card. I thought I might want to do that one by one, but wasn't sure about the order so I didn't do that. Thanks for pointing that out! Perhaps the first post needs to be edited a bit? :)

I think the camera will probably read the file names in alphabetical order - so will only load the "make card bootable" one and never do the "ML bootflag" one.


Coutts said he was making changes to the boot sequence and other bug fixes so I suspect he won't worry too much about installation instructions being accurate until the first non-beta version is released.

I guess us "beta testers" just have to figure it out for ourselves.   :'(

According to A1ex in his post a while back

"For more stuff (e.g. bulb exposures, trap focus or shutter count), one should dig deep inside the firmware. None of the tools from my current arsenal was able to find those, so it's probably hard - probably as hard as the 7D port "

Post by: coutts on October 31, 2012, 07:14:11 PM
As some of you already know, I bricked my 5dc yesterday while testing some new boot code. I tried to diagnose and fix it but unfortunately it's out of our reach for reviving. The bootloader appears to be toast, so canon firmware doesn't boot and no bootloader = nobody to boot autoexec.bin files. Basically we can't do anything since we can't run autoexec.bin files. It essentially acts as if it is soft bricked (like many early 5dc testers experienced), except there is no fixing it - pulling the battery has no effect. As a result, the 5dc port is now on hold until further notice until someone with a 5dc can take over development.

I disassembled the camera to see if anything was fried, but I didn't see anything. I'm sorry everyone, this is just a case of bad luck (I wasn't even trying anything dangerous, it just bricked). It was fun while it lasted (and my 5d too, i just bought it in February..). Now I just have this new paper weight:

So... who will take over now?

I don't know anything about jtag or how to use it, but i saw 3 connection spots not plugged into anything. I think somethings really wrong with the camera (like hardware damage or something). when I was diagnosing it would act random sometimes (one time it actuated the shutter when i turned it on). I still have no idea what happened but some stuff got pretty messed up (g3gg0 even suggested that the Digic [main processor] may be dead).

It isn't worth it since all the H iso are already pushed AFTER the light has been captures so they are digitally and not analogically obtained. You can do the same thing in post.

anything higher than I think ISO800 is "digital gain" iso, as in it's the same thing as pulling the exposure in post processing. things are already pretty noisy with ISO3200, even so: I couldn't push it any higher than 3200 (but probably can be done with lots of reverse engineering).

Well, if Canon can be trusted then ordinary iso values are analogically obtained while H iso are digital.
This is what i know, at least.

Most ISO modes are digitally touched anyway. The true analog ISOs are a multiple of something between the 100 and 160 as a1ex and other people discovered

4.) Charge battery to 100% and remove any battery grip for the install procedure.
5.) Download the zip file from the link below, unzip all of the files to your CF card.
7.) Launch the firmware update process. If you see any red led, then something...

Look back a few posts. I helped some others that had the same problem.

You have to do the firmware update twice with 2 different .fir files


=====================================

The instructions aren't too clear.

On your first install you need to do the firmware update with the file named "5dc.111.card bootable.fir" in the root of the card
This makes your card bootable
next you have to do the firmware update with the "5dc.111.ML install.fir" file (as well as all the other ones needed for ML)
This installs the ML bootflag.

There is no message that it was successful. The blue light should come on steady - like the instructions say. Then you have to remove the battery to re-boot the camera.

Blinking light means something wasn't installed properly.

I'm not sure what the camera does if you do the upgrade firmware process with 2 fir files in the root of the card.
after copying all the files over there, I made sure there was only 1 fir file each time when I did the firmware upgrade process and it worked for me.

Canon fixes 5DC mirror issues for free. The 5DC line had an issue with mirrors, so Canon does their repair even now, even if the warranty is long over. It's usually just a matter of gluing the mirror back.

it had some calculation mistakes (estimated pictures count was less than actual),
but since the camera was observed from time to time, it wasn't a big issue.

DxoMark measures this exactly. The Canon 5D is at least really close to the shown values, unlike other cams.  http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Cameras/Camera-Sensor-Database/Canon/EOS-5D#measuretabs-1 (http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Cameras/Camera-Sensor-Database/Canon/EOS-5D#measuretabs-1)

Post by: nanomad on November 15, 2012, 12:51:21 AM
No, what I meant is that the camera sensor outputs something between ISO 100 and 160. The "real" value is then digitally adjust to match ISO 100 readings (at least on most cameras). DxO misures the accuracy of such "adjustment" since they don't have access to raw sensor readings

About the question about real ISO: according to my test http://www.astrosurf.com/comolli/strum40.htm 100-200-400-800-1600 ISO are real, the extended 3200 ISO is NOT real, and the intermediate 1/3 steps are doubtful (histogram is ok, but read noise is identical to the slowest full stop iso).
Title: Re: Canon 5D Classic Firmware ** Beta 4 **
Post by: vscd on November 27, 2012, 06:01:56 PM
@Cobarcore.
Very informative page, thanx! I guess no one ever took the ISO3200 for real because it's marked and known as pushed Mode from Canon. You even have to unlock it in the Custom Funktions. As the EOS 5D can adjust -2 e.V. while shooting, the limit would be theoretical ISO 12800 (ISO 3200, -2ev... then push 2 e.v. in Post Processing) ;) The result would be mostly unusable.

Did you got more information on the 1/3 e.v. steps between lower ISOs, f.e. ISO 160, 320, 500, 640? Are those only the next lower step + in camera processing? Or are they "real" modes?

forgive me if this has been asked before but is it feasible that live view could be made to work on a 5D classic?  The reason I ask is that the 5D1 is a very popular camera still for people interested in using manual focus lenses for which I make adapter solutions for (edmika.com).  Because of mirror hit for many of the vintage Canon lenses it would be very useful to use live view to get around the issue.
Title: Re: Canon 5D Classic Firmware ** Beta 4 **
Post by: vscd on December 04, 2012, 11:21:21 PM
The question was already answered. Magic Lantern is some kind of backpack to the original (Dry)-OS, so if the original Firmware doesn't allow it, the cam will not support it. Of course someone could try to implement it directly to the hardware, but this won't happen because the Digic II isn't fast enough and the effort would be amazingly high.

For problems in focusing with manual lenses use different matt-screens in the viewer.

Coutts, I just saw the photos you posted of your disassembled 5Dc. Did you try putting it back together? It reminds me of that movie, Short Circuit. "No disassemble Number Five! "! "Malfunction. Need input." "Re-asessemble Number 5Dc".
Hope you get a new 5Dc donor soon.

Just checking some of the last photos, do you think some of that slight burning/melting was caused by a loop in the ML firmware. This mod does add new features, but potentially increase heat stress on circuit the system?

To all the requests asking about the shutter count feature. Do you really want to know when your 5Dc might die?
It is like asking the doctor, how many heartbeats do I have left...will I die soon?

Enjoy your shutter clicks while you can. Tommorow your camera might look like Coutts!

Click, click, snap, crackle and pop. :o

I have to say that after reading all these threads, it is such bad luck that Coutts camera gave up on him and all of us.
I hope that this does not stop the development of this creative mod. I wish Coutts and the team at MagicLantern all the best. The future really is defined by homebrew. Long live homebrew.

No, both canon firmware and the ARM chip have an auto-shutdown safety feature to prevent overheating. Moreover, it can't reach such high temperatures to produce burning or melting.

Hi,

I have followed this forum for a while since I am a long time Canon 5D Classic owner. This afternoon I finally had the time to try out firmware beta 4. After I extracted all the files to my CF card and go through the firmware update process, the LED is always a BLINKING BLUE LED which means the bootdisk is disabled. I followed the instruction exactly. I even formated the CF inside the 5Dc. Every time I go through the firmware update process the LED just stay BLINKING BLUE, not SOLID BLUE.

CAn some one help me? My 5Dc's S/N #: 0920703028. Thanks!!

Update: Thanks to Walta's post on Nov. 9th, I finally got it to work :) Thanks!

Post by: b0ooo on December 22, 2012, 01:35:59 AM
okay so i just booted it on my 5dc a couple min ago and Walta's explanation (post #262 pg. 11 on nov. 9) on how to install ml on the 5dc helped explain why there were two .fir files. So I'm just going to write my own comprehensive installation explanation in case i forget and maybe help those who are planning to install it since the explanation on the first page isn't very informative to non-tech savvy peoples. But it's still awesome what Coutts, A1ex, and everyone else has done.

I'm using windows 7, most of the steps should be the same for MAC users though with the exception of the extraction programs, or the drives that I mention. Here's a rough draft of the installation instructions (esp. steps 10-13)

Things to know and remember before you start the installation. Basically an installation for dummys (like me)

Pre-Installation Procedures (aka Stuff you need to know before you install it) (Should take about half an hour to an hour so take the time to read this otherwise you can blow up your 5DC)
If you've read all the things above, continue!

Preparing to install ML on your 5DC (Note: I  copied most of this from the first page, with some of my own edits)
1.) Make sure you are running v1.1.1 firmware (if not, upgrade to it!)
2.) Double check that you are running v1.1.1 firmware.
3.) One more time make sure that you are running v1.1.1 firmware!
4.) Charge battery to 100% and remove any battery grip for the install procedure.
5.) Download the zip file from the link below (in this case it'll be the link on the front page), unzip all of the files to your desktop.
The files that should be extracted are: ML (folder), "5dc.111.card_bootable.fir", "5dc.111.ML_INSTALL.fir" &
"autoexec.bin".
6.) Copy All the files that you extracted onto the "ROOT" (folder) of your SD card. (Note: the Root (folder) means the start of your Card folder, and if you formatted it, there should be the "DCIM" folder. On windows it should be something like D, E, or F or G drive)
7.) Delete "5dc.111.ML_INSTALL.fir" (tech mumbo jumbo: This makes your card "bootable")
8.) Safely remove your card from your computer and pop it into your fully powered, firmware version 1.1.1 camera.
9.) Be in any mode (i think) except for the green box mode on the top left dial (simple enough?)
10.) Launch the firmware update process. There can ONLY be these 3 possibilities (or else something is really wrong)
 - A red LED which means something went wrong. Go back to the top and start over.
 - A solid blue LED means good stuff is happening. It should go to the menu screen after a couple min, but if it doesn't pop the battery out and go to Step 11.
 - A blinking blue led means you messed up (better than a red light). Read on for steps on how to continue.

NOTE: Follow the next couple of steps only if you have a blinking blue light.
a.) There can be a number of reasons for a blinking blue light, you can either go RAMBO style and follow step 11 or,
b.) Turn off your camera, the LED will continue to blink, so take out the battery, pop it back in Go back up to step 6 and make sure you deleted the "5dc.111.ML_INSTALL.fir" file and start over, if you still have a blinking blue LED go RAMBO style and just go onto step 11.

11.) Turn off the camera, pop the battery out (just do it again, c'mon man). Let the LEDs flash. Open the hatch to your card and wait 5 seconds. Then take the card out and pop it into your computer again.
12. ) On your computer, Delete '5dc.111.card_bootable.fir" file from the root of your SD card and copy "5dc.111.ML_INSTALL.fir" from the desktop (or wherever you put it) onto the root of your SD card (This was the file you deleted before).
13.) Remove the card from your computer and pop it into the Camera.
14.) Run the firmware installation procedures  (menu (shortcut: scroll up one knot)-> firmware Ver. 1.1.1) select it and ok. A blue Solid LED should be on now. It'll take a couple minutes go youtube a couple vids or something and come back in 5 min. If not, you messed up. Go back to Step 11 and start over.
15.) After a couple minutes, if it's still the solid blue LED light, turn off the camera, pop the battery out and pop it right back in and watch the LED light show (ooh the red and blue).
16.) Turn it on. Press Menu
17.) Switch your dials a bit to anything, and press the Trash button and voila! Magic Lantern for 5DC - Beta 4 should be in white letters on a black background.

NOTE: To put it on multiple cards, SCRAX put this link up to figure out how to work it. Once I figure it out, I'll put it in dummy terms, but i only have one card on me for now.
SCRAX's Link on how to install ML on multiple cards: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=2522.0

12/26 edit: apparently you can put it on multiple cards. that's good.


And thus, concludes the installation procedures.

Leave me comments or add onto it if you have any procedures that are different. I've installed ML a couple of times already, and what I wrote, is how I did it. It might be different on other models, but on my model, this is how it happened.

btw, I'm also using a CF to SD card adapter that I bought from amazon. I'm not sure if the CF card adapter was originally too big, but I just sanded it down and it works marvelously in my 5dc.

b0ooo, thanks for the clarity about using only one .fir at a time. This tip worked for me but it works only about 50% of the time for some reason. There is no "Keep Magic Lantern" in the Format menu so I did lose ML twice before the light bulb went off. Well it's a beta so maybe  beta 5 will have that feature? This is a good thing for the 5Dc and I appreciate all that have put time into it. Will donate when it's out of beta for sure.  :)

Which .fir are you running? Bootflag?

Remember this from the Instructions

You only need to run the firmware update to enable the bootflag ONCE. Each time after that will only disable, re-enable, disable, re-enable, etc. the bootflag.

So it turns the bootflag on 50% of the time. Turns it off the other 50%

Rename entry.S to entry-5dc.S (also in Makefile) and will work.

Probably it's from latest Makefile changes.

just merged the master into my repo and fixed the compilation problems...

That's enough for now. I want to start playing with it, and also need to take confidence with the camera, I'm not used at all with two wheels.

see if you got the local_entry.S file, since i forgot to add it ... if its missing checkout(update) again.
(this file will be removed later)

EDIT: if it's about the long-calls and you cannot work it out, i'm using a toolchain compiled in 32bit and copyed into my 64bit host, this way you can work-around the -mlong-calls demand in the 64bit toolchains.
Though i had to export LD_LIBRARY_PATH in Makefile.user, because for some unknown reason my toolchain did not see it's own libs ;)
something like this:

  # Supported camera models
  SUPPORTED_MODELS:=5DC
 
  # Path-related stuff
  # for yagarto or the official ARM toolchain use ARM_ABI=none-eabi otherwise use ARM_ABI=elf
  CCACHE=ccache
  ARM_ABI=elf
  # this export needs a full path for some reason, ~ wont work
  export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/af/arm/arm-toolchain462/lib
  ARM_PATH=~/arm/arm-toolchain462
  ARM_BINPATH=$(ARM_PATH)/bin
  GCC_VERSION=4.6.2



the rest i think is untouched in my Makefile.user

Yes it was here, 2 commit.
I've -mlong-calls now, something strange also 600D din't compile (probabli make clean missed), copied makefile.user from a working clone  (no -mlong-calls problems) and still same error for 5DC, 600D instead compiles. From default I have only:
Code: [Select]
ARM_ABI=elf
PYTHON=python

# You can customize CFLAG here
CFLAG_USER = -mlong-calls -DCONFIG_RELEASE_BUILD \

So if this is due to 64bit toolchain I need to compile to 32bit like you but I've tried some times ago and never be able to understand how to do it, are you on a mac?

Hi all,

I'm new here, but I follow this project with much interest.
I had installed ML 2.3.0 on my 50D and enjoyed it.
Now, I have sold the 50D and I'm waiting for a 5Dc, that should arrive tomorrow.

I'm looking forward for testing ML on the 5Dc.

I'd like to participate, but I guess my programming skills (mainly under VB) wouldn't be sufficient.

Guys, keep the good work on!

Same here.

The 5Dc already has an Auto ISO when you're in Auto exposure mode. Isn't it possible to "simply" port this feature in the creative modes?

Of course you're totally right but posting a repairmanual of a 7-8 Year old camera is not that bat at all, I guess. Other manufacturers publish this on the normal lifecycle (like lenovo thinkpad etc.). If you wan't to comply fully on the laws you can stop the whole magic lantern project because canon is not amused at it. There are already lawyers talking action agains any manipulation on the new 1Dx   ;(

I suppose that you will then have a warning message from ML instead of Lightroom (but ML will work ok, just without cropmarks).
Import only DCIM folder contents instead.


@Coutts or 0xAF, about my compiling problems, I'm still stuck with that strange -mlong-calls error even if 600D and other camera are working ok. I want to override INFO screen with one like on bodies without LCD, but can't do it until I can't compile for 5D.
Could it be a compiler issue (summon-arm on osx 10.7.5)? Or since it works for other cameras it should be something in the code?
I'm thinking about installing a virtual machine and use linux but if I can avoid would be perfect.

Canon point of view is unknown, and has no legal value (if they want they can sue you for nothing and wait the process).
ML has no canon code, so there is no copyright issue with it, like installing an open source app in your computer.
For devs copyright issue in EU and USA are not a problem since reverse engineering is legal for interoperability between our hardware (since bought from Canon) and our software (self written).
It's similar to iphone jailbreak to me and that is legal in EU, probably also in USA, not sure.

A manual of an old camera is still copyrighted by canon, even if they don't care anymore about it.

Removing and re-installing battery  only brings up a black screen, and pressing "Trash" button fails to bring up ML menu. Removing battery again "Menu" shows" ver 1.1.1", - should it not show "ML 1.1.1".  Apparently I can now install and un-install ML, but cannot get it to function.

It smells like your toolchain problem. I use my toolchain (which i compiled almost 1 year ago) for 400Plus and ML and it compiles everything (i.e. 400Plus and all the ML cameras)
You may ask Coutts to send you his toolchain, or if you want a toolchain for linux i can send you mine (though here in the forum you can find a binary toolchain for linux)

I suppose that my toolchain is the same of coutts since i've installed it following his instructions, but will look for the linux one here in the forum.
By the way the toolchain is all in his folder so it can be copied from a computer to another or there are other things around the system needed/installed when compiling it?

After that i'll be able to start testing new features and remove or fix what is not working like flash/no flash option

Also since on that camera we have just a few features that need to be switched on and off during use (like braketing or intervalometer) I was thinking about adding shortcuts to all of them like it's now for MLU, suggestions about the button to use?
I was thinking about using the joystick, something like:

UP: Bracketing
DOWN: Intervalometer
LEFT: -1/3 flash exp comp.
RIGHT: +1/3 flash exp. comp.
DP: MLU

if you want to build yours, try either the summon-arm-toolchain - https://github.com/esden/summon-arm-toolchain

Thank's for the links,  will try the EABI first and then the prebuilt. I don't have any clue what's different from EABI and ELF, I've preferred ELF since alex was using it for Makefile compatibility, and now that it is customizable one toolchain or another for me don't make any difference, if works of course :)

I'm using the summon-arm toolchain modified by alex right now installed using the guide of coutts but with another package manager (http://magiclantern.wikia.com/wiki/Magic_Lantern_on_a_Mac_(with_homebrew)) for osx instead of macport/fink.
Need to try to compile 400plus, since I've tried and it failed nearly one year ago when found how to compile the toolchain on mac.

I don't have any clue what's different from EABI and ELF

I can't draw you the big picture, since I do not see it too, but basically these are 2 different ABIs (Application Binary Interface). It matters for linking.
The EABI is the newer and commonly accepted nowdays. It's made for embedded systems, hence the "E" letter. The idea for EABI is to have an ABI that has compatibility between different compilers, so basically you can have different object files (.o) made from different compilers and still link them together... It matters for dynamic libraries too (IIRC), so you can have different libraries made by different compilers and still link (statically or dynamic) between them. Hence the plugins compiled by different compilers.
Another difference (IIRC again) is that EABI uses some kind of optimized stack space (perhaps other tricks too), so it takes less memory (and size).
One more thing, I've read somewhere that the calling mechanism for the routines is different, but I'm not sure about it. Thus I had doubts if it will work in ML, because we are calling routines from OFW, but since Alex confirmed it, I guess it's backward compatible, or it is using the old method for calling a stub. IDK. Though I may be totally wrong here. There is plenty information on the net, but I'm lazy to read it. (search for "EABI")

Basically for us it doesn't matter if we use the old ABI or the newer EABI, but since the EABI is common nowdays and it's made for Embedded systems, I would guess it's better.


p.s.
If someone has more knowledge ready to be shared and thus saving me time for reading it, please correct me or share more ;)

Hello,
I'm new to the forum and have just loaded Magic Lantern onto my 5Dc.
I had no issues with the install.
I seem to be having the same issue as this post:

http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=3445.msg17215#msg17215

1. The MLU.
Perhaps I'm using it wrong . . I want the mirror to lock up, the camera to take its (eg) 5 bracketing exposures and the mirror must drop down again. (The mirror lockup is disabled
At the moment: The mirror locks up on 1st button push, takes the first exposure on the second push, drops the mirror and takes the rest of the exposures 'flapping' the mirror.
If i then push the trash button, the MLU has been turned off.

2. The intervalometer - it works  the moment it is turned on in the ML menu, it starts counting down immediately and taking pictures without waiting for the shutter button to be depressed. Is his normal?

Forgive me if I'm doing it wrong or I've missed something.

Hello,
I'm new to the forum and have just loaded Magic Lantern onto my 5Dc.
I had no issues with the install.
I seem to be having the same issue as this post:

http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=3445.msg17215#msg17215

1. The MLU.
Perhaps I'm using it wrong . . I want the mirror to lock up, the camera to take its (eg) 5 bracketing exposures and the mirror must drop down again. (The mirror lockup is disabled
  • on the camera's own menu.)

At the moment: The mirror locks up on 1st button push, takes the first exposure on the second push, drops the mirror and takes the rest of the exposures 'flapping' the mirror.
If i then push the trash button, the MLU has been turned off.

2. The intervalometer - it works  the moment it is turned on in the ML menu, it starts counting down immediately and taking pictures without waiting for the shutter button to be depressed. Is his normal?

Forgive me if I'm doing it wrong or I've missed something.

Regards
Bruce.

Thank you for doing this camera!
1 mirror don't stay up during braketing, it should raise and after raised take the pic (second shutter press), will try to check if it is working as expected later...
2 is how itworks on all model ML supports,

The Intervalometer is not a parameter you turn on and off. Its a script that you run.  So choosing it starts it right away.

Once it gets out of beta, the menus will be more user friendly.

I managed to compile for 5DC, using the EABI toolchain for mac from https://github.com/jsnyder/arm-eabi-toolchain

Had tomale some changes to compile the tree version don't boot, the 0xAF fork boots but with few different things from beta 4, now I'll try to enable some recent features to see if they works, first of all GUI event :)

EDIT: Almos all of what I've enabled needs fixes to work, first of all I think that bulb Timer can be a good thing to have on 5DC, actually acn't detect correctly when in B mode. Any suggestion on what can I check to make it works?

?

The 5DC in the master repo is broken. Even the old boot method wont work. I suspect it's a problem in the initialization of the CPU, that's why I still have problems with the cache boot method. The CPU hangs after specific amount of time, whatever I do...
I made changes in the old boot method (the original init code) to make it boot. These days I will try to find what were changed that prevents the original init procedure... I hope if I fix this, the cache boot method will work too, as it seems the cache hacks are working, but the camera still hangs somewhere... strange enough.

In the meanwhile, use my repo, until these problems are fixed. I will push the the master once it's ok.

BTW, just updated with the master, please pull again.


EDIT: if you need to push to my repo, please go ahead, I think my repo is inheriting the master's repo user permissions, you should be able to commit to my repo too...

I have installed your fork on my 5Dc today. I have noticed some issues. I'll post them later today.
The issues I have seen are not critical but annoying.
First one is the following :
When I review my pictures, if I press on "Set" to modify the exposure, the blue led turns on.
If I press "Set" again, it turns off. Till now, everything is normal.
But if I try to do anything else (quitting the review mode by pressing the play button, half pressing the shutter button, hitting the menu button...), the camera quits the review mode, but the LED keeps shinning. To turn it off, the only way is to go back in review mode and to press the "Set" button 2 times. I don't think this is normal.

I have that problem too, will try to check it, also I had problem when show overlay is shown after tacking pic so I've disabled it for now.

@0xAF I think you have to add me (600Dplus) permissions for pushing to your fork, I have no writing permission on the main tree, but I can submit pull request to you fork I suppose like on the main tree so it's not a problem for me and maybe is better so you could check what I did also.

I tested it further and turned off all overlay settings and noticed thesame problem. My gues is that the Preference - Display Saturation - Normal couses it, because when i change it to grayscale or more saturated setting it behaves similar. In first picture preview is colored normal and after half sec ml turn it to grayscale.

My gues is that Display Satturation setting - Normal (1) does not turn this feture off, but proces image in some "Normal greenish saturation" Is there a way to turn off this fetaure?

I've tried to change picture styles but it is noticable enyway.

Post by: Chewe on February 06, 2013, 04:35:04 PM
Hi all! I've been using magic lantern since old 350D, nice to see it has been ported to 5D Classic.

Recently I've bought a dead 5d classic, which after repairing the blown fuse on DC/DC board has come back to life! Everything works fine, AF, Shutter speeds, photo review, firmware update to 1.1.1 and I've been even able to upload magic lantern beta4! So at this point i should be glad for a 100€ spend... except that each time i shoot a photo the camera is stuck on busy mode with red light (not blinking as writing) as if it was trying to write the photo from buffer to card without success. I can shoot two photos before this "odd buffer" stucks the camera again on busy mode without writing. Each time i have to reset the camera by unpluggin the battery.

By watching the tasks menu on Magic Lantern... it shows CsMgrd: p30 m=56% on yellow... but i don't know if this is standard for all users of 5DC ML
Image Buffers= 540x426, 540x426
FreeMemory= 2573
cmos temp=144

When benchmarking Card (fast blinking red light), it does the first block (128k) Writing/reading and on the second it "skips" on the last one

I don't see either Shutter Counts... should be where?

LiveView is working?

The options i get from beta4 are really fewer than the video on Timelapse feature

Thanks everyone for this port! from Couts to Alex! Cheers!

Hey everyone. I have upgraded from my 5Dc to a 5D2 and the full Magic Lantern is amazing! All the features with liveview. It is just incredible how much stuff you can control with focus trapping and precise ISO and the movie stuff is just overkill!

But however with all the new technology in the 5D2, I personally think that the image quality straight out of the camera (silky smoothness) is a bit better on a 5Dc.

I am so tempted to buy another 5Dc, but I will be happy with my 5D2 with liveview (which I really am enjoying for focus control).

So basically never sell your 5Dc!

by the way! someone tell couts that maybe his canon got a dead fuse on DC/DC board!... i've just revived mine by soldering a small/thin wire over it and it come back! I've done it previously on other canons like 350D and such... easy trick.

Cheers

I'm not running it now. I deleted it when Coutts bricked his camera and work seems to have stopped on this project for a while.
There weren't any items in the beta version that I needed so I decided to unload it until progress resumes.

Maybe someone else on here can answer your question.

Regarding Chewe's issue, I have no idea. Does your camera work OK when ML is not installed ?
Title: Re: Canon 5D Classic Firmware ** Beta 4 **
Post by: Chewe on February 07, 2013, 01:37:53 PM
Hi Buzzz57, the camera has the same issue with or without ML, that's why i got installed MLU, so i could try to debug on canon tasks what was going on... Yesterday i put the main pcb after desoldering metallic parts on a bath of ultrasounds, and later resoldered all parts and put it back to the camera. Oddly enough the buffer grow from 2 shots to 4 shots that never were written on the CF. Today i've wake up, and wandering if it would become again on 2 shots buffer or 4.... it STARTED SHOOTING and WRITING!!!! Yuhuuuu!!! Well... at least for 10 minuts, then it became stucked again to4 shots buffer.

So i presum it has to be some "cracked" solder on main pcb.... my last shot is going to be a heat air gun reflow session technique....

Anyway, while the camera was working i checked for a moment MLU -> Show tasks -> Canon Tasks... and there were three yellow tasks! not one... Can you confirm this point on your camera? It was "CsMgrd" and another two that i had no time to write down on my excitement...

Cheers!
Title: Re: Canon 5D Classic Firmware ** Beta 4 **
Post by: a1ex on February 07, 2013, 01:45:48 PM
The yellow tasks only show memory usage a bit above average, no big deal.

Maybe it's worth getting some diagnostic log messages from the camera. The recommended way is dm-spy, but it's a bit tricky to use (low-level hacks inside). Trying to call dumpf should be easier, but logs may be incomplete.

When it gets stuck, does it react to any key presses?

I'd try this:

in don't click me:
Code: [Select]
void run_test()
{
    msleep(10000); // pause 10 seconds, enough to take a few pics
    call("dumpf");  // save Canon's diagnostic log
}
Title: Re: Canon 5D Classic Firmware ** Beta 4 **
Post by: Chewe on February 07, 2013, 04:21:52 PM
Wow! Thanks A1ex

When it gets stuck, everything goes perfect, it's like the "busy" as if i was shooting a long burst and waiting to get the photos dumped from the buffer to card. So camera reacts accordingly, menu, ML menu, etc... except that when i press play it says busy, althought i can get back to menu again. The problem is that it doesn't let me shoot any other photo, and the ones on buffer doesn't get to card... The only way to fix it is to unplug the battery and plug it again.

Oddly enough i've been playing again, and the buffer has come to 8 shots (same RAW option as 4 and 2 ¿?¿?!!!) althought none are written on the card... seems that i'm coming close to fix the cracked solder...

Anyway it really interest me the way you say to go dm-spy... althought i've got no idea what you mean (really bad newbie python programmer...)

How could i get a log out of the camera? with the same beta4?

pd: I've gone through card benchmark again and that's what says (it stops on 4 phase)
Write speed (buffer 128k): 4.1MB/s
Read speed (buffer 128k): 4.6MB/s
Write speed (buffer 16384k): 9.5MB/s
read test skipped: buffer=16777216   <-- ??

pd2: So I should compile an autoexec.bin with the code you wrote in "don't click me" class... but i don't find how to on windows... any chance you could pm the autoexec?

Post by: Chewe on February 07, 2013, 09:05:10 PM
Hi daydan!

Yep, as it states on the first post from couts it's the same process to install it than to uninstall it. As a fact, changing the bootflag to update firmware to ML or to uninstall it takes just a 5 secs maximun as you actually only modify this bootflag byte on the camera, so it can "dualboot" from your camera canon's firmware and the ML firmware your CF Card.

As a fact, i would like to say, that at least on this ML for 5D Classic, i actually booted with another CF card which didn't had the ML autoexec.bin without any problem... Althought is NOT recomended.

Not sure about the Exposure Adjust its strange how it affect the file even shooting in RAW, it behaves as a jpg.
When i push the printer button (blue led) the mirror lock up reactivates automatically. It try to unselect it but it reactivates when pushing this button.
Well, great job, you give 5d a better life :)

Exposure Adjust is just a "quick preview" of how the image could be after being edited in post, it does nothing to the file on the card, just change exposure on the image on screen.

i've tried both ways... there are three logs... with a lot of errors. I suspect that maybe there are some errors that can help me debug the parts of the boards affected.

by the way, on benchmarking card, how it behaves to other members of the board? everyone with the same results as me with unfinished 4th phase?

Thanks 0xAF, A1ex!!!

So now, just wondering how should i proceed after booting with new autoexec.bin on card...

1) Take Pictures until buffer fulls, and then, while on busy mode, go to ML menu and execute -> don't click me
or
2) don't click me -> Take pictures -> wait for dump

How big should i expect the file from a dumpf? how much time aprox to write it?
by the way, on benchmarking card, how it behaves to other members of the board? everyone with the same results as me with unfinished 4th phase?

I dont know how should you proceed, just do few experiments and read the log. Try to find what's wrong from the log.
The log  will be few tenths of kilobytes i think... but cant remember exactly.
Writing it to the card should take no more than 2-3 seconds i believe.

btw forgot to say:
when you click the "dont' click me" it will wait 10 seconds (as Alex suggested), then it should beep to indicate the starting of the log dump, then beep again when it finishes. Basically you should hear 2 beeps.

Hi.
I'm currently busy with other projects @ my job. No work is done for 5Dc from me ATM.
I have plans to return to 5Dc, but cant say when. Hopefully in the summer.
The progress in ML is far from this port now and there is a lot to be done.
The porting of the boot method is almost finished, but still has some problems.
Once it's done I guess the port will be easier to be maintained.

I do not know of other dev working on 5Dc ATM. Please feel free to take over.
Here is my work on porting the boot method (cache-hacks): https://bitbucket.org/0xAF/magic-lantern-5dc-port-wip
If anyone is interested, please contact me and i will explain in depths where i got stuck.

If you want to use ML on 5Dc please use the latest beta4 from Alex. It is stable for daily usage. My wife is happily using it on my 5D for long time now.

I know this topic is on the shelf at the moment, but would still like to try Beta 4.
I have a Canon 5DC with v1.1.1 firmware.
I have unzipped to the root directly of my compact flash and gone through the update process on the camera.
The first time I ran it I got a blinking blue light. No matter how many times I run the update process, I only get the blinking blue light.
Am I doing anything wrong?

Any help would be much appreciated!
Thanks for all of your hard work!

The instructions aren't too clear.

On your first install you need to do the firmware update with the file named "5dc.111.card bootable.fir" in the root of the card
This makes your card bootable
next you have to do the firmware update with the "5dc.111.ML install.fir" file (as well as all the other ones needed for ML)
This installs the ML bootflag.

There is no message that it was successful. The blue light should come on steady - like the instructions say. Then you have to remove the battery to re-boot the camera.

Blinking light means something wasn't installed properly.

I'm not sure what the camera does if you do the upgrade firmware process with 2 fir files in the root of the card.
after copying all the files over there, I made sure there was only 1 fir file each time when I did the firmware upgrade process and it worked for me.

Found this in the thread which helped perfectly!

Yes on 5DC format is erasing all stuff on the card. This may change in future, but no guarantees.

Yes on 5DC format is erasing all stuff on the card. This may change in future, but no guarantees.

i've had some close calls with that erase all option while in the field, careful ;)

Can't understand right your question, that option is to make intervalometer or bracketing doing x time shutter press when shooting.
For example if you have intervalometer set to 10s and Pics at once set to 3 ML will take 3 pics (one after other) every 10s, usually I keep it to 1

There is no need for 14Bit RAW because you won't see any difference I guess. The Dynamic Range of a 5DC is about 11 EV and even the 5DM3 can't get up to full 12EV. The 14Bit RAW Engines were done on future use, only.

Just wondering, it seems that is a thread on a port for 40D/50D. Those can use LV, althought 40D is using VXworks... the same as 5Dc...

I remember that over USB, there would be an option for tethering and use LiveView on computer... any hope to find the string?

Maybe a mode on 5Dc to write lower resolution stills?

IIRC only 50D has LiveView in those 3 models, and on that model ML can record, but if there is not LiveView in the Canon firmware there is not a lot that is possible to do, even with same Os

7.) Launch the firmware update process. If you see any red led, then something went wrong. A solid blue led means that the bootdisk is now enabled. A blinking blue led means the bootdisk is now disabled (if you want to completely uninstall ML). Each time you run the firmware update it just toggles the bootdisk to the opposite of whatever it is currently. The installer FIR will make your CF card bootable for you, no further work required here.

You have to run the 5dc.111.ML_INSTALL.fir once. Maybe you did it twice and it reverted back the bootflag. Once you get the solid blue led to restart drop the battery

Earlier in this thread - I posted some info for the install. You can only have one .fir file at a time on the card.

Also, as scrax says if you run the firmware update with the "5dc.111.ML install.fir" a second time it will turn the bootflag off.

see here:

================================================================================
The instructions aren't too clear.

On your first install you need to do the firmware update with the file named "5dc.111.card bootable.fir" in the root of the card
This makes your card bootable.

Next you have to do the firmware update with the "5dc.111.ML install.fir" file (as well as all the other ones needed for ML)
This installs the ML bootflag.

There is no message that it was successful. The blue light should come on steady - like the instructions say. Then you have to remove the battery to re-boot the camera.

Blinking light means something wasn't installed properly or bootflag is turned OFF.

I'm not sure what the camera does if you do the upgrade firmware process with 2 fir files in the root of the card.
after copying all the files over there, I made sure there was only 1 fir file each time when I did the firmware upgrade process and it worked for me.

Well, I think when I wrote that it was beta 1 or 2 from Coutts. Maybe later versions of the beta boot differently.
Haven't tried to uninstall/reinstall with beta 4 or the latest one.

Maybe my help file is not needed any more.

Yeah, I just tested beta 4 with a freshly formatted card, updated firmware with all the package on the card and it worked fine.
Did the same thing in your latest beta 4+ or whatever your calling it and it works fine there as well.

What people have to remember is that when its done the firmware upgrade it flashes blue slowly. You have to turn the camera off, take off the battery and then put the battery back and re-start it.

By the way, are you recommending that we take the grip off when installing ML? What about after its installed - put the grip back on?

on 600D I've installed also with the grip on sometime, I suppose is mainly a precautional procedure to avoid power issue during firmware update.

Tomorrow, my 5Dc will go to its rightful owner, so... probably it's time to post a beta 4 (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=1010).

It was compiled from the same code base used for 7D alpha 1 (http://www.magiclantern.fm/whats-new/104-releases/140-first-7d-alpha-released), it feels quite solid on my 5Dc (although I didn't shoot anything serious with it, just ran built-in stability tests that simulate random button presses), and it basically contains all the features I could port without significant reverse engineering efforts.

For more stuff (e.g. bulb exposures, trap focus or shutter count), one should dig deep inside the firmware. None of the tools from my current arsenal was able to find those, so it's probably hard - probably as hard as the 7D port :)

Auto ISO needs to be implemented from scratch or ported from 400plus. For me, the only auto exposure that I consider good enough is the one that exposes to the right. And from what I know, this is not possible to get with current hardware outside LiveView - not even on 5D3. If you disagree, just tell me how ;)

That's it - the 5Dc was quite fun to analyze, lots of internals are simpler and can be understood, but... it has some severe limitations. ML code is open, there are both free (http://magiclantern.wikia.com/wiki/GPL_Tools/ARM_console) and paid (https://www.hex-rays.com/cgi-bin/quote.cgi) reverse engineering tools, anyone can look inside and continue to experiment, there are firmware addons for 350D and 400D from where you can learn and borrow features... you only need time, skills and the desire to innovate.

I hope this update will effectively turn your 5Dc into a new camera (well... without LiveView).

Enjoy!

I have a idea. if it is possibe in 5Dc, So Great!

Semi Auto ISO( in Manual Mode)

1. User set ML Semi Auto ISO in Manual Mode.
2. User push Half shutter Button.
3. ML reads Over or Under exposure information( +2Ev, -1/3Ev, Etc).
4. If User don't push and release the button , ML set compensation ISO Value for Over or Under Exposure Info.
5. User push Half shutter Button, then User confirm a exposure information throuth the window.
6. If User push the Button, ML keeps present ISO Value.
7. If User don't push the Button, Again 2.~

ML for 5Dc is for ..... 5Dc !

I would say that there is a risk of bricking the camera if you try to activate it with .fir file for different camera, or try to execute AUTOEXEC.BIN from a different model.

AFAIK, 1Ds mk2 is not in the ML targets, I think no camera from 1D line is in ML targets.

I have been following the forum for some time and this is my first post. First of all I want to thank all the developers, who are dedicating generously their free time to build these softwares to largely improve the features of the cameras we have. Thank you very much for your time and effort.

On top of this, I just want to ask if there is any estimation on the delivery date of the Beta 5 for the 5DC. If it's just in a few days I will wait, otherwise I will install Beta 4 or the Beta 4+ from the link that Scrax posted in May.

Thanks again.

Other than that, this seems to run like a charm.

Btw is there anyway to correct that greenish-magenta tint on the screen when you are watching images on playback mode?

As we all know the screen on the 5Dc is bad, the resolution is fine(imo), but the colors are way off when comparing to PC monitor. Mostly because of that green-magenta tint on the LCD.

There is no known issue with writingspeed for the V1.1.1. It could be that your CF-Card needs to get formattet or replaced. The V1.1.1 just fixed a problem with cards >8GB. It *could* be that there is a new protocoll active which your Card doesn't like... but you're the first I've heard of.

I followed the directions but I only get the blinking blue light (bootflag disabled) and no response when I click the Trash button. Any suggestions? I went through the process several more (5) times but I only get a blinking blue light. Any help is appreciated.

p.s. If it helps, I'm using a Komputerbay 266x 32GB card.

Look back a few posts. I helped some others that had the same problem.

You have to do the firmware update twice with 2 different .fir files


=====================================

The instructions aren't too clear.

On your first install you need to do the firmware update with the file named "5dc.111.card bootable.fir" in the root of the card
This makes your card bootable
next you have to do the firmware update with the "5dc.111.ML install.fir" file (as well as all the other ones needed for ML)
This installs the ML bootflag.

There is no message that it was successful. The blue light should come on steady - like the instructions say. Then you have to remove the battery to re-boot the camera.

Blinking light means something wasn't installed properly.

I'm not sure what the camera does if you do the upgrade firmware process with 2 fir files in the root of the card.
after copying all the files over there, I made sure there was only 1 fir file each time when I did the firmware upgrade process and it worked for me.

Is there any possibility to get "shutter delay(MLU)" feature on 5Dc? That would be super helpful, with my 550D I can get almost 1-2 stop longer shutter speed with it.  :)

Do the firmware update again with the file named "5dc.111.card bootable.fir" in the root of the card.
This makes your card not bootable
If you do it again it makes it bootable.
This is a flag that turns the boot portion on and off so every time you run it it turns it either on or off
Next format your CF

Hi,

I also have the missing firmware message on a 16GB CF card, but ML works on a 2GB card. Several pages ago there was a Windows tool linked which I also tried and this said I have no boot flag on the 16GB card. Changing the boot flag with this tool also allows me to use the 16GB card.

And it is (in my case) regardless if the boot switch firmware file 5dc.111.card_bootable.fir stays on the CF or not.

I'm still testing this boot problem and if there is a workaround with Windows or Mac OS system tools to make a CF bootable. Maybe it is a problem of the file system (FAT32 on the 16GB card) or the CF card is not a typed as a big floppy or removable, maybe it is a USB HDD type. I'm not sure if I had used this card as a bootable USB hdd for Windows setups earlier...

Is the ML software insied the auto exec.bin file? If so I think it is not possible to use different ML files (in my case for the 5DC and the 7D) at the same time on one CF.
Is there a way for hot swapping the CF card without rebooting the DSLR?

Regards
Nils

PS: nice tool, I'm looking closer to the several functions.

For some reason I'm not able to get ML running on my 5Dc again.

I had it couple of months with any issues but I accidently formatted the card in camera yesterday.

I have tried dozens of times to get it running, but I always just get blinking blue light.

I am having the same problem. I tried to re-install the version on the first page of this thread and got the blinking blue light. I used both methods (having both .fir files and then having only one). Neither way worked. In the end my camera ended up being locked up - no LCD screen and can't actuate the shutter.

I formatted the card, tried to run the bootflag file a number of times nothing. I was starting to sweat. Finally took all batteries out for 5+ minutes and camera works fine.

In the past I've been able to install Beta 4 that I downloaded earlier (last year) and they worked fine. Maybe theres something different in the one on this thread now. Anyway I'm not attempting an install again until it gets out of BETA.

Dear All,

My name is polarrys and I am a 5D classic user.  I have installed Magic Lantern on my 5D but I have a big issue now. I tell you :

1. I put the all the files from the zip on my camera and I boot it. I do an upgrade firmwre. I have the blue light so no problem.
2. But, I can't boot on magic lantern or on canon soft with my CF card
3. When i have NO CF card installed, i can boot on canon soft (but with no CF card)

Please, can you give me an advice to solve my problem .
There is a possibility to delete all ML to have only the canon soft.

Thanks a lot for your help.

I'm going to find a card reade to format my CF.

Hi polarry,

do you know someone with good computer experience?
It should be possible to re-initialize your CF card using diskpart.exe on Windows, but this should do someone who knows what to do. If you are not familar with diskpart you should not try it because you can destroy data.

A solid blue led means that the bootdisk is now enabled. A blinking blue led means the bootdisk is now disabled.

This might help:

Special note on to use EOScard Utility:

This is the way to set the flag on the card:

When you use EOScard make sure that:
1. You have the necesary files in the SD card: *.fir file (only if you need to set the bootflag on that camera; this process to be done only once), autoexec.bin file, plus the ML directory.
2. The Utility recognizes the card by identifiying it in the box next to Refresh.
3. You select the EOS_DEVELOP  check box
4. You select the BOOTDISK check box
5. Under Content, make sure EOScard recognizes: DCIM folder, autoexec.bin file, ML folder, and if required (to enable the boot flag on camera) the fir file.  When EOScard recognizes all of those files it should give you a check mark or something like that.
6. Press the Save button.
7. Look on the bottom of EOScard and should give you a confirmation that the card was written, ie. write successful.
 
I recently read about another situations with the newer EOScard utility in which the automatic function brought the files to the SD via internet connection.  I am not familiar with this function but Pelican seems to more about it since he created EOScard utility.  Anyway the issue was that EOScard utility had downloaded some files plus there were already some files in the card, the user noticed that in the fir file area it showed like 2 files so the user had to select the correct fir file for the EOScard utility to properly prepare the card! One of the files was for Mac and the other was for windows.

Also on most cameras, except 5D3, if you enable the camera bootflag via firmware update, and then do it again you will be disabling the bootflag. In the 5D3 you cannot disable the camera bootfalg.  It is and ON-OFF process, so if you have a camera working and set the camera flag using the *.fir file you will be disabling the flag in the camera and ML wont start.

So remember to make a card bootable use EOScard utility, and to set the camera flag use *.fir file and do the firmware update.

And... always use a card reader if you want this to work properly!

I think the question was how to tell if the camera firmware had been set to boot from the card. That you can only tell from the blue light.
0n the 5Dc the camera bootflag is a toggle, hence my suggestion in the post above.

Version 1.0 would be nice.

They seem to have all moved off to the newer models.

I think we're going to be stuck with beta 4 forever. Thats why I suggested that someone at least get this off the beta shelf and release a version 1.0. That way if thats as far as it gets at least it solid.

   - Intervalometer
   - Mirror lockup (shortcut key, or link to self-timer)
   - Flash exposure compensation (-10...+3EV) - not tested
   - Flash / no flash (like in fuji 6500) - not tested
   - Display saturation (grayscale/normal/oversaturated)
   - Fast zoom (one click goes to 100%, like on 5D3/1Dx)
   - Quick erase (like on 5D3)
   - "Ken Rockwell" zoom (press Zoom In after you took a picture, without pressing PLAY)
   - Exposure adjustment in playback mode (very rough)
   - Timelapse playback - http://vimeo.com/48482815
   - In-camera help (press INFO)
   - Benchmark (check read/write speed of the card)

Use M mode.

In Adv Bracketing, if I use manual mode and set exposures to anything higher than 5, I get duplicate exposures. If I choose auto detect, I don't get duplicates, but often only get 3 to 5 exposures. How can I shoot 9 true bracketed exposures?

Post by: moonlite on February 14, 2014, 11:12:58 AM
hi! first post.

i´ve been using magic lantern since i bought my 5d ~a month ago and i´m lovin´it! (both the 5d and ml).

i have a 1d, 350d (chdk) and 500d already but the iq on the 5d just blows me away. especially since i like to tweak my pix quite a bit. just love the noise. so fine grain and beautiful quite in a class of its own compared to my other cams. i guess what i´m getting at is that the 5d really seriously still is a really good camera, almost 10 years later (tac sharp images even at pixel level b/c the weak aa-filter and my prime lenses. also all iso levels very usable while on my 500d even iso 100 is not what i´d consider usable even though it is the newest of them all by far. 2009 i seem to recall) and it would be a shame if the development of ml for it would end here. ml just extends the usability of the camera quite far and when such a great sensor sits at the heart of it there is not much limiting what could still be done with it. off the top of my head i see only a couple of h/w "limits" that can not be overridden by software thus making the camera more "modern":

 - better af (not /really/ missing it though i tend to prefer my 1d for street photography & sports etc and i can´t deny lusting after 6d:s -0.5ev low light focus capabilities living up here in the north (finland)
 - faster write speeds & bigger buffer. (almost never a problem)

 - liveview (would mostly like it to manual focus accurately for tac-sharp focus)


what have you guys missed or what would you like to see in future releases of magic lantern for the 5d? here´s something off the top of my head: (just wishful thinking)

 - bulb timer or mod. i had to buy a remote release cable because the bulb mode in the 5d does not make any sense to me. why in the world can´t the shutter in bulb mode just work as a on/off switch: press once to open suhtter, press again to close shutter. bulb mode is most commonly used for very long exposures, and the way it is configured now you have to manually keep the shutter button pressed as long as you want the sensor exposed. what were they thinking??

 - dual ISO

- i love to configure so i´d like to have more control over the information displayed on the lcd:s and maybe even the viewfinder

 - i dislike (actually really really hate, despise) the blue light shining into my eyes when mirror lockup is enabled. maybe the "warning" light could be the top lcd light instead? (would be handy too)

 - more options on af/mf modes and auto iso etc. i think i have to re-analyze a bit before coming up with more realistic best-case expections b/c i´m not sure most of these are even possible software-wise


i´m sorry for rambling on, speaking lots but saying very little (at least of any value). i guess i just wanted to keep this thread going b/c not much has happened here for a while and this thread seems like our last thread of hope although realisticly at least for now all hope is lost. also i want to show devs, admins and the community at large that there still are people craving after 5dc ml updates. and for a good reason, too. not just nostalgia reasons. not that any of it matters if nobody has the skills AND the drive AND the time AND the patience AND the re(sources) etc to continue working on 5dc ml. i would have the patience and the drive but no skills and very little time which seems to be the case with most of you(?)

now, i´m off to install ml on my 500d and try out auto iso just for a laugh. (i think i´ll actually either laugh or cry when i see the noise)


thanks and sorry
michael

Quite a few people are using this version with no reports of camera damage. However, take note that this is BETA software with no support.

If you read back thru the posts here you'll see that a few people have had problems with the bracketing functions.

You can just delete it from your CF card or you can follow the instructions to uninstall the boot flag. That will return it to factory settings.

I've been using ML with no problems until today.  My CF card went corrupt and ended up with loads of strange characters for file names, managed to recover my pictures  (then reformat card) but since then I am missing my ML files - which I've reloaded onto the card but my 5DC menus are screwed. 

I've got no menus after format, so can't update Firmware to re install M or v1.1.1L, also custom functions & reset are missing so in a bit of a pickle, any help would be appreciated.  Tried reformatting on PC & Camera, then adding ML files but can't access  update firmware!!

UPDATE***  Found out not all of the menus are displayed when the camera is set on Auto....... DOH!!  RTFM

This happened to me as well last summer - not corrupted card but menus screwed up or missing. I had to reformat card and re-boot camera to factory settings and try numerous time to update the firmware.

I was starting to get a real woozy feeling that I had trashed my near-new 5Dc and was getting sweat on my forehead.

I  can't tell you the exact sequence of event but I just tried numerous time to reformat and re-run the update to undo the boot flag. Finally it worked.

Note - I don't use this software any more. a couple of weird happenings and the fact that this web site now says its UNMAINTAINED causes me to be wary of continued use of it.

No, if you look at the first page you'll see the functions supported.


However, it does cause your menus to disappear. Not sure if that's a bug or a feature

Note that this is an unsupported/unmaintained beta version.

Just format your CF card

Or you can re-run the install program which uninstalls the bootflag - then format your CF card.

The 5dc will work on the unified tree! Big thanks to A1ex for the help in making this happen.

Does this mean beta 4 is a fork of the unified tree back in 2012 or is there a unified tree version somewhere back that includes the 5dc?

I've just picked up a used 5D classic today and trying to figure out where to start.

There is no developer maintaining this software any more. So I'm not sure if there's anyone around to answer your question. My interpretation of that statement is that it "could" have gone in to the unified tree. However, I think it was abandoned while still in BETA and therefore never went in to the unified tree. 

However, on a cautionary note, this is an unmaintained, BETA software package. If you read back thru this thread a number of people (including myself) have experienced problems with the last version. One of the symptoms is that you lose your menus and therefore can't even update the firmware to uninstall the ML bootflag.

I value my camera too  much to take a chance at continuing to use this software - especially when there's no one around to help in case I have problems.

Note that all of the above is just my opinion. Others may differ.

From the instructions

7.) Launch the firmware update process. If you see any red led, then something went wrong. A solid blue led means that the bootdisk is now enabled. A blinking blue led means the bootdisk is now disabled (if you want to completely uninstall ML). Each time you run the firmware update it just toggles the bootdisk to the opposite of whatever it is currently.

Blinking means the bootflag is disabled. I would suggest just launching the firmware update process again (without re-formatting).

Having said that if you look back thru this thread you'll see a number of people having problems installing it in the past year. I'm not sure why that is, I installed it and uninstalled it a number of times but since the developers have abandoned it I have uninstalled it for good.

Just want to bump this thread and restate what many have said and I'm sure still feel: Thank you guys SO MUCH for your hard work on this! Even though development has stopped on ML for the 5Dc, the work done thus far is amazing, and really really helpful to me personally and professionally.

And with that said, I'll do the selfish thing and make a request: Auto ISO, if possible for the 5Dc, would breath new life into this machine for me. I shoot lots of indoor speaker events with poor lighting and can't afford fast lenses. The only hope I have is to set the aperture as wide as possible, set the shutter speed to at least 100 and hope that Lightroom can deal with the noise that comes with using super high ISOs. Auto ISO, used on the 60D and Kiss X2 I use at work, allows me to not worry about noise or getting the right exposure thus leading to a higher percentage of usable shots. To have that functionality on my only full-frame body would seriously increase the quality of my photos and my percentage of keepers.

So here's one more photog pleading with our hard-working, demigod-like developers: if you have the time and interest, please get auto ISO on the 5Dc!

I had the same problem. Only blue blinking light. I solved it by doing this;
-Format card
-Extract the ML files on the card
-Download EOScard and set the bootflag there
-Delete bootable.fir file from card
-Run the firmware update from the camera.

Obviously if you want to uninstall you need to copy back the bootflag.fir file.

Question- During bracketing, can I keep the mirror up? so that it doesnt close and open between frames?

Great job. It makes the old 5d a whole different camera. Outstanding.

I'll reiterate the thanks others have left for the devs in getting creaky old 5DIs a few more features.  One thing I was curious about is whether this can be used to determine shutter counts on the camera.  Elsewhere I had read that it was supported on other models but couldn't seem to find anything on the 5DI I have here.

From Page 1

* Complete feature list:
   - zebras, focus peaking, spotmeter, histogram, waveform, vectorscope (in playback mode)
   - exposure bracketing: shutter, ISO, flash; 2x0.5 ... 9x5EV; auto mode (covers the entire dynamic range).
   - DOF bracketing (changes aperture and shutter while keeping exposure constant)
   - Intervalometer
   - Mirror lockup (shortcut key, or link to self-timer)
   - Flash exposure compensation (-10...+3EV) - not tested
   - Flash / no flash (like in fuji 6500) - not tested
   - Display saturation (grayscale/normal/oversaturated)
   - Fast zoom (one click goes to 100%, like on 5D3/1Dx)
   - Quick erase (like on 5D3)
   - "Ken Rockwell" zoom (press Zoom In after you took a picture, without pressing PLAY)
   - Exposure adjustment in playback mode (very rough)
   - Timelapse playback - http://vimeo.com/48482815
   - In-camera help (press INFO)
   - Benchmark (check read/write speed of the card)
   - Display operating system internals (tasks, free memory)

If you want to deactivate the hack, just delete or rename the autoexec.bin file ...
It's not a good idea to reflash the original firmware again, since you're already running the very same firmware...
It's not a good idea to deactivate the bootflag and activate it all the time, either.
Just rename or remove the autoexec.bin, or format your cf card and the hack will be gone.

I was supposed to continue the port long time ago.
Sorry to disappoint, but it wont receive attention from me, at least anytime soon.

I haven't took a photo for almost 2 years. You can guess how much time for hacking I have :(
Besides the camera is VxWorks based and ML is for DryOS cameras mostly, not that it's impossible to port some of the goodies, but 5Dc wont have much of ML anyway.
I'm not sure how much interest receives this camera either.

If I have the time for ML (which I dream of), I would probably move to some newer camera, thought they are already full of goodies (most of them).

Just to clarify this a bit.
The version is beta, since it never came to fully ported ML.
But what's in there (thanks to Alex and Coutts) works as expected and AFAIK there are no reports of any brick by this hack.
And to say the truth, I do not see how can this hack damage your camera.

I have it installed from the moment it was released.
It is true that I do not take photos with the camera, but my wife shoots with it at least once per week and it takes few hours of shooting a photo session in studio.
I believe it's something like 150-200 photos per session (week)

So far the camera works as it should.

Well, I wouldn't call it a brick. That would be if I had to throw the camera away. It just makes it un-usable until you can get the ML uninstalled.

It seemed to be similar to the problem eduperez had with the 400plus hack for the XtI - where there was something going wrong under certain conditions when it was writing to the LCD screen. He had to back out a bunch of changes before it work properly display the menus. And we've seen nothing new since.

Post by: 0xAF on February 17, 2015, 08:29:01 AM
It was a different problem there, not like what you've experienced, though I never had problems with 5Dc.
Anyway, the point is that you can use the hack relatively safe. In case of a problem (like your's, though I suppose there were more factors for this), you can always replace/format the CF card.

Heres my post and another from back in Sept 2013

For some reason I'm not able to get ML running on my 5Dc again.

I had it couple of months with any issues but I accidently formatted the card in camera yesterday.

I have tried dozens of times to get it running, but I always just get blinking blue light.

And yes, I have tried this already: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=1010.msg16120#msg16120

I am having the same problem. I tried to re-install the version on the first page of this thread and got the blinking blue light. I used both methods (having both .fir files and then having only one). Neither way worked. In the end my camera ended up being locked up - no LCD screen and can't actuate the shutter.

I formatted the card, tried to run the bootflag file a number of times nothing. I was starting to sweat. Finally took all batteries out for 5+ minutes and camera works fine.

In the past I've been able to install Beta 4 that I downloaded earlier (last year) and they worked fine. Maybe theres something different in the one on this thread now. Anyway I'm not attempting an install again until it gets out of BETA.

I guess it wont get out of beta.
Anyway, from what you described, it seems that the camera (software) really is locked up, and you had to pull out the batteries to reset it.
I wonder what could be the reason for that.
I don't think there are different hardware versions of this camera, but who knows. This could be the reason.

Can you try enabling the bootflag, then put the autoexec.bin (i'm using the same from the first post) and see if it works with it?
I never tried to start the camera w/o autoexec.bin.
This could be the problem? The camera is old enough, that it could not turn on w/o the autoexec.bin and bootflag enabled (though I doubt it).
Never tried to start the camera w/o the autoexec.bin, but if this is the problem, then the disabling of the hack should be done with turning of the bootflag, instead of formating the card (as I suggested earlier).

This is just out of curiosity, you dont have to try this if you are worried about the camera.

BTW, Alex or other dev could have more info on this.

All cameras will lock up if you delete autoexec.bin from the card.

From what I remember from 400D, you can delete the autoexec.bin and the camera boots it's Original Firmware w/o problems. But I could be wrong.

Hi,

Earlier, I had magic lantern on 50D, and I remember that has shutter count function.
This ML vesrion for 5D classic is suitable for reading the shutter count?

I followed the instructions but instead of the solid blue light I get a flashing blue light. Any suggestions? I reformatted and did it over again but got the same result.

===================================================
I had the same problem. Only blue blinking light. I solved it by doing this;
-Format card
-Extract the ML files on the card
-Download EOScard and set the bootflag there
-Delete bootable.fir file from card
-Run the firmware update from the camera.

Does anybody have the Beta 3 as download?

I want to test the bulb ramping that was removed in the beta 4. I think i read about that. Hope that someone can help.

Does the classic 5d firmware enable auto ISO?  :)

Cheers

Hi all.
To devs: I would like to build 5DC binary from source code.
what is the branch/revision of the beta binary?

Is it possible  to build also from master or there are too many differences?
Yes, I understood it is unmaintained, but I would like to play with it.

Thanks

EDIT:
found it:

changeset:   4777:5760fa25cc5c
branch:      unified
summary:     Tag: ML-5Dc-Beta4

I am into photography and I would buy one of those professional cameras. Nikon or Canon which is good for those who want to take landscape photos? Please, I want a camera that is cheap, images of great quality, aesthetics and landscape. Thanks

Hi there,

I am having trouble installing the firmware on my camera and hence was hoping for your help.
Whenever I try to update it, the error message "Update File can not be found" pops up.

Ive tried formatting the card in camera, as well as inside windows, redownloaded the ML firmware again, even tried the EOScard utility to make the card bootable - all with no success.
Is there anything else Ive missed?

The card used is an 8gb Transcend card. Unfortunately no other card is available at this moment.

Hi,

I had this question on IRC - probably the wider audience can help here. I'm trying to forward-port the 5dc platform. Got a few of the source files to compile, but for some reason it looks like the stubs are not pulled in or get defined.

../../platform/5DC.111/gui.c:99:25: error: implicit declaration of function 'unknown_gui_function' [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration] unknown_gui_function( MEM(0x1BD4), event->param );

The unknown_gui_function does exist in stubs.S. In the last working 5dc checkout (back from 2013) this and similar functions are not defined in any header file - so the question is that how are the functions in the stubs get declared?

Thanks,
-w-

I'm looking for a ROM dump for QEMU experiments (mine is incomplete). You may get one from the Debug menu; please send it to me by PM.

If there is still interest, I can try to fix compilation on the latest codebase, then let you continue the port.

Side note: there is a small chance to get LiveView with the full-res silent pic backend, but the front-end functions are not present, so it will require some low-level research along (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=1915) these (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5601.msg166924#msg166924) lines (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=16428.msg159735#msg159735). But my gut feeling says it's doable.

But since this camera has a simpler codebase, this effort might pay off for more recent models as well.

@wigyori: the implicit declaration on this platform uses 32-bit integers for all parameters. So, in this case, you may get away with: void unknown_gui_function(int, int).

I need serious help.

That was yeasterday. Today the 5D will not start-up even with another non ML CF card.
- when I press trash...nothing black screen

Can you run the display test (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=14732.0)?

So far, no other 5D user tried it, so we also need somebody with a good camera to confirm the test is actually working.

In Beta4 there is no point to dump ROM, is there a release which can do it?

I tried this, hopefully I did it correctly.  :)

ps. I think this message should be added to 1st post or make the instructions more clear for dummies like me.
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=1010.msg16120#msg16120

I'm always having problems with installing ML to my 5D(led just keeps blinking if I do it by 1st message instructions). That usually does the trick if anyone is having problems also.

Hi, thanks for adding 5D classic support. Tried it today - a lot of nice features, but not the ones I need. Actually, I was looking for Dual ISO on 5D. Is it possible to have this feature on 5Dc? :)

My 5D2 recently meet the floor, and I'm using 5Dc since then. I can make dump if you still need it :)

That would be interesting!

Thought I would get the best answer here...

Not directly oriented towards development but I have wondered quite a while now if there is any down side of using ISO3200(H-setting) vs ISO1600 and boosting exposure 1 stop(I've found out that it is more close to +0.91 rather than full stop) in Lightroom?

I did my own tests and really couldn't find a any difference between two of them.

Maybe ISO3200 is very slighty more pleasing, tiny bit less chroma noise and finer grain, but I could be also making that up. I surely thought there is a difference in dynamic range in favor of ISO1600 but absolutely zero diffence. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I guess I start using H-setting from now on(didn't use extended ISOs before this).

I guess that DIGIC II is doing better job than my expensive computer processor and 10 years newer processing algorithms.  :D

@Pharien I used to have a 5Dc! Most favourite still camera I ever had.
As ISO h1 is just digitally boosted by the camera, I would say use 1600, because that will preserve some more highlight details. And your probably just imagining the quality difference :) could do a forensic test though

How to remove bootflag? When I run firmware update again (running Magic Lantern), it shows "Update file cannot be found", even when I unpack fresh copy of Magic Lantern files to this card.

When I used a new, fresh formatted card (so ML will not start), procedure worked - got "blue blinking light", but after inserting first card it booted again to ML...
