Testing of New Commit May 18th 5D3
2. The framing for 5X and 10X is still giving me a headache. The 5X frames correctly but if I want to focus at 10X the framing goes to the center so I cannot focus on the subject. Focusing is more difficult without colors, the jerky LV view is disturbing.
If this method of automatic framing does not work i would suggest the following system which worked fantastically for me:
As I have mentioned before I could do correct manual framing by moving the focusing square with joystick seventeen times to the left and eight to the top. Now I found out that this can be simplified by using in Prefs tab the "focus box settings" menu and selecting the option "snap points" and selecting "Center/TL/TR/BR/BL". Now when you press the joystick the focus box moves and when you get it on the top left then stop and it is almost perfect for zoom framing of RAW video.
I further tested this method with the commit of May 15 which does not have the auto framing and WORKS BEAUTIFULLY. I can zoom 5X, 10X with proper framing and no gray boxes or fuzzy lines. I can even record in Zoom mode and move around following the subject and refocusing by pressing half shutter. I can go 5X, 10X, or full view without any problems in full color and resolution.
The snap points option could include a simple 5X snap so that you can flip from center focus or 5X focus at the tap of the joystick depending what type of video you are doing.
This is the ML version that works best with "snap points"
