Title: Canon EOS M3
Post by: Hector on February 07, 2015, 01:50:43 AM
New video of the Canon EOS M3 shows red highlighting (a-la Magic Lantern) on the focused subject during manual focusing.
Don't have anything but high praise for the Magic Lantern team here and the amazing work you have done.

Hector, lets hope the Magic Lantern team can do wonders with the M3. I've used Magic Lantern Canon DSLR's from time to time, but I have never owned one personally simply because I'm looking for a quality Mirrorless Magic Lantern camera. Lets hope the M3 is the camera myself and many other have been waiting for.

The good old EOS-M has been somewhat a deal killer with RAW/MLV (pink dots removal is a PITA) but other than that I still use ML occasionally ( still kicks a$$ even w crop-mode in h.264 -- I wish the 5D3 had this feature) in order to give my 5D3 a break (or when its higher quality is not needed)...

But yes I agree with the fact that the M3 would definitely be a game-changer with ML for the current EOS-M owners!

Any updates regarding FRSP for EOS-M or is that ever not going to be a possiblity?

It doesn't look to me like the M3 is a huge step up from the M1, and I love the M1.  If they had put the 7d2 sensor in the M3, I would order one at full price and have it shipped to the US even without ML available.  As it is, I think an M1 with ML is a much better option.  I primarily use the M1 for easy photos on the go, time lapse, and plant cams for events.

My M3 has arrived!

Knowing nothing, not even where to get started compiling, I would be willing to help get the ball rolling if someone can hold my hand on the test compile.

I would be ecstatic to just get movie restart mode, self timer and exposure bracketing working

M2 was an Asian-market-only product. Never hit shelfs in Europe or the Americas.

Correct. M3 OTOH, is a "whole world except North America" product. It's also easy to get ordering through Amazon.jp http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3798686 or from any Canon dealer in Europe, Australia, etc. Including Africa: http://www.canon.co.za/for_home/product_finder/cameras/digital_slr/eos_m3/. Just not the Americas :(

Hopefully since the M3 appears to share a significant amount of tech with the new T6i we should get somewhere.  (same sensor, same digic6 processor, similar or same touchscreen)

I'm willing to try mine as a test bed, but I don't even know where to start compiling (I'm am not a coder, never coded anything more complex than HTML)

I'm also willing to try to get funding together for buying an M3 for a dev, if a dev is willing to commit to developing for it.

(I aslo assume its a non starter until we have a downloadable firmware rev for the M3 - correct?)

@a1ex would you mind sharing a firmware dumper for M3 as you did for 70D (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=8419.msg130475#msg130475) ? Single digic6 could be worth a try and I would like to have some look into the dump and check if it boots up in qemu. This way we will also know if it could work on 750D / 760D.

That said I am looking into an additional and more lightweight cam for everyday use and the eos m (or m3) with an ef-m 22stm f2 lens seems to fulfill my needs (still unsure though if the lack of a viewfinder would make me happy...)

We would need to find out if the firmware is dumpable. For this we require @a1ex to do some work and share a firmware dumper. If successful I may try to boot it up in QEMU.

I too can confirm that the sensor of M3 is impressive, but I am not sure if M3 needs Magic Lantern.
Title: Re: Canon EOS M3 - the limiting factor is the SD writer ?
Post by: RavingRover on June 02, 2015, 03:13:15 AM
But like many Canon cams, the SD writer is likely a very limiting factor, at least for raw video.

The M3 is certainly a step forward, but honestly, the ML team should wait (maybe?) for the obvious very needed f/w update from Canon for the M3, it has several important issues for some, and until fixed many/some are NOT buying it.

That said, the M3 is fine for most now, just not as good as a f/w fix and ML could make it, and unlike  other makes has a nice touch screen - once you have one, hard to NOT want one for any/all cams IMO !!

Guys, if you didn't known about that - very nice improvement in EOSM3: clean HDMI out! If you put your camera to manual focus to hide a focus box and switch layout mode with info button to clear the screen - you can get clean image without borders and gray frames. My setup includes hdmi2hdmi box, so, let me check it without this box today one more time just to be sure. I'm not sure about resolution too.

I would not expect that you are actually getting a clean HDMI out that can be recorded.  Even though you may not see overlays, it is likely that the HDMI signal is actually compressed and full of artifacts.

I am falling in love with the M3 for its size and ease of use. It is packed with great features for its price and takes excellet stills. For video I have found a decent lens helps a lot but I still crave RAW! Please guys - let give the M3 some magic treatment.

Interesting, the update is only to fix a problem on just one non EF-M lens.

Quote
Firmware Version 1.0.1 incorporates the following enhancement:
1. Improves the autofocus speed of an EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM attached to the EOS M3.
* To mount the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM to the EOS M3, the mount adapter EF-EOS M is required.
* The enhancement in the autofocus speed only applies when the lens is used with the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM.

Don't hold your breath, no Digic 6 processor camera has been successfully ported yet--as far as I know.

Hum - interesting find here:

An indicator for DryOS is that the "Firm Update" menu entry appears if a file named *.fi2 is put on the Card instead *.fir

So since the firmware update is named EOS_M3.FI2 maybe following these instructions might be a way to get started even without a camera?

hello to everybody.
I"mnew in magic lantern and I would like your help.
 I have an eos m and I installed ML some days ago.I have a small problem. When I press the trash button to use the menu of the ML it just stays in the menu only 5-7 secs and then it returns to the standby mode.I don"t have much time to  use the settings and then I haveto press again the trash button etc.
Does anybody knows if there is a setting with which I can increase the time for remaining the ML menu on the screen?
Thank you

Hi dimsire, welcome to Magic Lantern. This topic is about the EOS-M3 as a possible new port.

Since ML hasn't been ported to the M3 yet I'm assuming you're talking about the M1 (M2 was never ported) and you posted to the wrong topic. Please read through this topic before posting to it, I believe that issue has been discussed several times:

Anyway, this works:

https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/issues/1974/6d-m-700d-70d-in-live-view-mode-ml-menu

Hi guys,
I’m a photographer located in Perth , Western Australia. I won a Canon M3 . I found this thread while looking up how to do astro time-lapse and how I will need ML for intervalometer as the M3 doesnt have one.
I will be watching this thread closley as i really need one to get the shots i want.
I thought i would share a couple pics of the extras i have bought to make this one hell of a powerful little camera...
I really couldnt get use to looking at the LCD after using DSLR's for so long so i had to buy the EVF. Alot better!

Dumb question, what's necessary to customize the video bitrate on the firmware? Not a programmer, but I can script.

The EOS M2 had 50mb which produced beautiful 1080P video and no audio compression which resulted in great fidelity; vs the low bit H264 and AAC that Canon throws on the EOS M3 to neuter it so it doesn't compete with pro offerings since the autofocus and software IS is good on the M3/new APS-C's. I almost want to buy another M2 (sold it once I bought the M3) since it did such a good job with video.
Title: Re: Canon EOS M3
Post by: DJHaze596 on September 11, 2015, 04:42:24 PM
EOS M3 is a great Camera but keep in mind of the Green Tint in the corners of the EF-M lenses. This does not occur with EF-S or EF Lenses however. Video is also over Sharpened with the EF-M lenses to which cannot be fixed even if you turn down Sharpening in the Picture Profiles.

There are Samples with RAW Files posted in this review here.

Post by: Chopeca on November 07, 2015, 12:32:33 AM
I just got myself an M3. The body is just so much nicer than the original one, and I wanted to be able to flip the screen. Unfortunately, the video quality this camera produces now is awful, and you can't even use manual settings. The exposure settings it lands on are usually bizarre.  Really hoping Magic Lantern makes its way onto this camera, because it would be the best videocamera for the buck. With the EF-M mount you can get image-stabilized lenses really cheap (unlike EF full-frame), so you don't need to carry around a lot of equipment. The write speed might even be enough to get 1080p RAW now.
Title: Re: Canon EOS M3
Post by: cpreston on November 07, 2015, 06:10:19 AM
You can't shoot in manual on the M3?  Is that right?  That seems so strange since you can shoot in manual on the M1.  In any case, I'm sticking with the M1 unless ML is somehow made to work on the M3.  Very unlikely.  The EOS-M is a really nice little camera with ML.  I would love better video quality and I've heard that the M3 is slightly better, but ML is the key to making it useable for video in my opinion.

M3 is a great little camera for movie capturing and it really needs magic lantern, soon.
Some months ago I was joking on this thread by saying "I  am not sure if it really needs it".
In fact I was expecting that the developers would have made it quickly for this special camera.
Unfortunately things now show that it is very difficult to see anything on the horizon.
CHDK porting for M3 is not a good turn, because CHDK is mainly not for video.
In fact CHDK is a good option for point and shoot cameras that do not have many manual controls.
M3 with CHDK would be able to run some scripts for interval stills shooting: but you can do this very easily with an external remote timer and you do not need CHDK.
I would love to see the the zebras, the Kelvin white balance, time lapse videos through "fps override', the override of shutter speeds during movie capturing, the bit rate control and so many other unique features if only Magic Lantern could run on M3.

[...]I would love better video quality and I've heard that the M3 is slightly better, but ML is the key to making it useable for video in my opinion.
You are right. I've been using this camera for video since stoopkid pointed me in the right direction, and the video barely passes for 720p. There's very little detail. It's a shame because the body is a lot nicer than the M1, with a real grip, accentuated button placement for record and a moving screen.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, the zebra is very unreliable on longer distances. With the active focus ring on the kit lens being so short, it's incredibly difficult to focus on the move.

Won't happen ...
How come?
Title: Re: Canon EOS M3
Post by: dfort on November 16, 2015, 03:56:54 AM
How come?

Because the firmware on the M3 (and M10) is apparently based on the Powershot models while Magic Lantern hooks into the firmware for Canon DSLR's. The CHDK project has done some pretty amazing things with point & shoot cameras and CHDK does work on the M3.

http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/M3

Rumor has it that the M2 has better video than the M1 or M3 and porting Magic Lantern to the M2 is possible.

Because the firmware on the M3 (and M10) is apparently based on the Powershot models while Magic Lantern hooks into the firmware for Canon DSLR's. The CHDK project has done some pretty amazing things with point & shoot cameras and CHDK does work on the M3.
Damn. Thanks so much for letting me know! I'll follow the M2 thread to see what happens.

I can tell you what's going on with the M2.... waiting on a dev to take it up :(

You are right. I've been using this camera for video since stoopkid pointed me in the right direction, and the video barely passes for 720p.
Sorry I would not agree with this opinion.
Instead I quote a link for a movie test on M3

Ant 123, when the files for the M3 are going to be available? I'm really interested on using it

cheers

Technically it's CHDK, not ML, so you'd have to bug him over there.

That said they've stonewalled on development; appears to be a dead subject; different propcase set than standard Powershots thus CHDK doesn't give you control over codec (or any other video) options as it's making bad function/mismatched/unmatched calls against the M3. They'd have to rewrite their existing base code to accommodate is what I gather, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong in my interpretation.

Sorry to bump this thread.

Where are we at with a M3 build? Any success?

M3 and M10 firmwares are based on Powershot series firmware, not on EOS DSLR's, so Magic Lantern cannot run on these cameras. In theory porting CHDK to EOS M3 is possible, and some initial work has been done, but there is no a completed CHDK port so far.

FWIW, Canon posted firmware updates for the M3 and M10:

http://www.canon-europe.com/support/consumer_products/products/cameras/digital_slr/eos_m3.aspx?type=firmware
 (http://www.canon-europe.com/support/consumer_products/products/cameras/digital_slr/eos_m3.aspx?type=firmware)
http://www.canon-europe.com/support/consumer_products/products/cameras/digital_slr/eos_m10.aspx?type=firmware
 (http://www.canon-europe.com/support/consumer_products/products/cameras/digital_slr/eos_m10.aspx?type=firmware)

As pointed out above, these are powershot based, so not much use for magic lantern.

How's to progress? I bet others would be willing to throw in some money to encourage the current developers. 
Title: Re: Canon EOS M3
Post by: Walter Schulz on June 03, 2016, 07:37:38 AM
- There will be no ML for M3 because code base is totally different. M3's firmware is closely related to Canon's point-and-shoot. There is a CHDK port in the making. Please join the discussing there.
- Money will cause current devs to drop-out from project.

FYI, the latest QEMU branch (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/branch/qemu) is able to emulate a large part of the EOS M3 firmware, so it could be useful for those porting CHDK.

Emulation log: EOSM3-qemu.log (http://a1ex.magiclantern.fm/bleeding-edge/qemu/EOSM3-qemu.log)

Notes:
- DryOS core (task scheduler, semaphores, meminfo) is pretty much identical to EOS firmware (e.g. 7D2)
- A lot less debug messages on M3 (unless I'm missing something, since there are plenty of strings)
- File I/O routines are different (Fopen_Fut on M3, similar to Powershot, FIO_OpenFile on EOS)
- Initialization appears simpler on M3 (a sequential routine; on EOS there are a bunch of things running in parallel)
- Low-level initialization looks pretty similar (cstart, init_task)
- SD card emulation is not done, but should be doable (if you look at how it's done on 60D or 5D3, for example)
- User-level code is totally different
- The log contains TurnOnDisplay, TurnOnBackLight and similar stuff, so if you find the display buffer address, it might actually show something :)
- To enter the debug shell, return '#' as the first character from the UART (TIO)

Code: [Select]

To prepare the ROM files for QEMU from the CHDK dump:
Code: [Select]
mv PRIMARY12.BIN EOSM3/ROM1.BIN  #  32MB from FE000000
mv SECONDARY.BIN EOSM3/ROM0.BIN  #  8MB  from FB800000

The rest of details about how to run the emulator are in the QEMU thread (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=2864) and in the install script.

I wouldn't say porting ML is impossible on this camera, but it would be one of the most difficult ports (it will require a lot of wrapper functions that mimic the behavior of DSLR firmware, and while you can probably easily get ML menu up and running, porting the features will be a lot more difficult - most things are very unlikely to work only with minor tweaking). It would be probably a little easier than porting ML to Nikon :P

Hope it helps.

You can find some addresses there: https://subversion.assembla.com/svn/chdk-m3/trunk/platform/m3/lib.c (https://subversion.assembla.com/svn/chdk-m3/trunk/platform/m3/lib.c)

@ant can u send me files so i can use the intervalometer options on my m3? Thanks
You can try pre-pre alpha version of CHDK. Intervalometer script should work...

In the miniatyr function on the camera you can use the filmfunction and speed up the view 5-10 or 20xx

Hi all new owner of a EOS M3 here in the States.  It's replacing my T5i that I sold to a friend.  Buddy of mine turned me on to ML and I eagerly came here to download but it's looks like no dice for the M3 =(  Is this true or am I just a dumb noob not looking hard enough??
Title: Re: Canon EOS M3
Post by: Walter Schulz on February 09, 2017, 09:27:40 AM
EOS M and M3 do not share the same code base. M3 internal code is based on PowerShot architecture. 

For programmers it means EOS M3 will be the most difficult port ever and because CHDK project is covering PowerShot pretty well it is unlikely you will see an ML port.

Hello Everyone,

I am a beginner with the Canon EOS M3 Mirrorless Camera and have a question regarding the limited video length in Canada.

I'm an active gamer and want to record video without having it cut out every 29 minutes and 59 seconds. I understand this is a limitation because in Europe you can be charged taxes, duties, etc. when recording videos exceeding 30 minutes. I live in the country of Canada and don't want this to happen to my videos. Does Magic Lantern have a function to bypass this limit? If so, is it a good idea for my camera?

Thankyou,

potvinp
