Tomorrow, my 5Dc will go to its rightful owner, so... probably it's time to post a beta 4.

It was compiled from the same code base used for 7D alpha 1, 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 and paid 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!

WOOOOOW!

really great!!!
like it so much!

but one little thing is still wrong:
- if a pic ist autorotated, the overlays in playmode doesn't rotate.

Heh... I always have the auto-rotate disabled :D

On-topic: it requires finding the image buffer that's actually being displayed. That, and the fact that altering its contents doesn't reflect on the screen, are hints that what I'm using now it's something else.

I want to say thanks as well! I am just upgrading to a 5DII but this hack is still awesome!

To see the shutter count would be a very useful feature for me at the moment, so I can check it before I sell my 5D.. :-)

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.  :)
