Hi Daniel, in one of your Treads in the last Days you write about a "April joke" meaning some different reports from Testers. I don’t understand all the Programming Details in many Treads and I believe many others ML Interessted User got the same Problem. But I cut feel that you was not satisfied about the different reports about the Testing Modules you offer to bring the Crop mode and 10,12-14 Bit Mode together.
Let me say since 4 Years I use more or less ML Modules anthill I found with the 3xCrop Mode exactly what I need and looking for, especially for the 5D3-123 Firmware, because I use a Field monitor for manual focusing the small Birds on bigger distances. With my 65 years old Eyes the Monitor is a big help. I use Lenses from 12 to 100-400mm and 600mm or 840mm with T-Converter and the 3xcrop Mode works perfect for my Bird documentaries.
I read your Reaction and ask myself what I can do to help by testing especially for the 5D3 with 123 Firmware. So I change the Firmware from 123 to 113 and test the last December Modules where 5xcentered Crop and 10, 12 and14 bit is together. Id needs a bit to understand the workflow, but now I got it. Today I was out in the Fields around Paphos – Cyprus and test it in the real World. I used MLV with Sound and Auto ETTR, the Module works without Problem in the way I used. The Colors and Withe balance are nearly ok when I open the MLV in Lightroom, only small corrections in the Highlights.
So if you need Testing and reports back let me know, it will be a pleasure for me to help for ML.
