I just noticed this thread based on the merge. Great stuff.

Continuing on the logic, I wonder if the feature can be perfected to answer the central question, "Is my camera about to shut down/be damaged?" Here's what I gather:

- people trust Canon to shut down before damage
- it's unclear how many/which sensors are being read
- absolute temperature measurements can't be trusted
- ML is likely reading the sensor that Canon uses to determine chip temperature, even if that’s not what’s used for EXIF.

It also looks like some people are willing to stick their cameras in the oven! Sooo..

If people were willing to heat up their cameras externally, and then run video enough to cause camera shutdown (while watching ML temp), we could create a virtual scale which is essentially “how close to shutdown/damage”.

This scale could be spread between room temperature and shutdown temperature, per camera/class, based on EFIC_CELSIUS. So to be clear:

- capture efic_room as EFIC_CELSIUS when camera powers on at room temp (20 degrees celsius) ambient
- capture efic_shutdown as EFIC_CELSIUS when camera shuts down due to high temperature

Now the UI can be a simple “idiot light” that goes nothing -> yellow -> red:

- nothing < 0.80 * (efic_shutdown – efic_room)
- yellow > 0.80 * (efic_shutdown – efic_room)
- red > 0.95 * (efic_shutdown – efic_room)

The UI could just be “Temp” with either a yellow or red background. Since degrees are meaningless, don't show them.

For cameras that have not been shutdown-tested, we could guess efic_shutdown based on data in this thread.

@ stefeval
I for my part can say, I want to see the degrees. For me, the coloured warnings are not so important, because such warnings are given by canon firmware (double stuff). But nevertheless,  knowing the temperatures, at which the camera shut down, would be interesting. But I will never force my camera to do so  and do not expect others in doing so.

@ 1%
ThankYou for the values. In this temperature-range all cameras look quite similar (in some boundarys). A more spreaded temperature-range would be needed to be sure, to which of the two classes the 6D belongs. So it´s the best to wait for some other data for the 6D.

@ mk11174
Thanks for measuring. I will work out the function this weekend.

I´m just doing these test with heating the cam from outside and let acclimate it for some hours,

I wonder how valid such temperatures from an acclimated camera will be. Electronics and especially CPU can heat up quite rapidly, even during boot-up. I think the newer, higher end cams have a more substantial heat-sink, which would help. Maybe?

My speculation is that my 600d doesn't have a substantial heat-sink.

Is there is a way to embed debug statements in the boot-code to write soon-after-cam-turned-on temp values to a log than could be accessed externally, after the fact?

Perhaps an intervalometer function that recorded the internal temp, while the cam was taking pictures of a thermometer so as to facilitate sync of camera and ambient?

I think these are close enough not to matter, really would need a IR thermometer to check it.

FWIW:
Newegg has "Shell Shocker" deals on their house-brand Rosewill infrared thermometers several times a year. IIRC, about $20, free shipping.

5d2 looks clear, x-128
700D nearly the same: x-132

I´m a bit busy at the moment, so more tomorrow

Thanks for testing

Hi all

Yes, testing this stuff with an infrared thermometer would be fine. For doing this, I would try like this:

Recording a video-file for to heat the camera
Testing the cam at some different temperatures (low, medium, high for example)
Measuring at each temperature some parts inside the camera. Sensor bottom side, sensor top side, other parts
shooting a pic at each temperature and extract the temperature, shown in the exif of the pic.
Writing down the according temperatures here in this thread: exif-temp, Celsius by ML, raw by ML, IR-temperatures.
Beeing very quick in testing this.

I think, someone started measuring with an thermometer some time ago, but nobody followed him. It would be interesting to see, wheter the measured temperatures match to temperatures, showed by ML or extracted from exif. But I think, this test isn´t very simple to do accurate, because, if the lens is removed, the temperature inside the camera will change very quickly.

Hihi, 5D3 and 600D are at the same level: high end cams, because they show the same temperature-response-curve. I love my 600D  :)

Wouldn't it be possible to use scripting to automate this tests and also reduce mistakes?
Is it possible to get the raw temperature reading from the script and write it to a file?
I would love to write such a test script.

[EOS 6D, using raw-after as RAW]

The best, simple fitted curve has a cubic function;
temp_C = -4152 + (72,2 * RAW ) - (0,4193 * RAW2) + (0,000815 * RAW3)
That one had R-Sq(adj) 97,7%

The best linear function:
temp_C = -69,12 + (0,6558*RAW)
R-Sq(adj) 95,3%

The quadratic function:
temp_C = -351,9 + (4,045 * RAW) - (0,01011 RAW2)
has an R-Sq(adj) of 96,8%

Omitting the raw-after of 26 Celsius, the linear function seems ok.
One would need more data points in the lower and upper temp segments to be sure, though.
With more points, a better fit... a simpler equation?

I'll give it a try to come up with more data points in the lower and upper temp area.
Have to get up early to be able to measure temperatures below 26°C, but the upper part should be easy.

Added a plot for 6D: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9673.msg93158#msg93158
I guess, we can live with a function like this: 85/100*raw - 102
I will create a pull request this weekend. Thanks for helping.

Hmm I'm afraid my test results on the 500D are not reliable, and will never be. First there is a really weird bug where the camera crashes randomly when recording in video mode, so the test was not possible to do. What I did was 25 x 1min clip and a picture between two videos, although I still had a lot of crashes

Then, the temperature doesn't seem to update properly (500D not fast enough?) and I had to reboot the camera, change mode, open a few times the ML menu... And still, the results are everything but what they should be :


Code: [Select]
166 51
166 54
167 54
167 55
167 54
167 55
168 55
168 55
168 57
168 58
169 58
169 59
169 60
172 60
172 60
172 60
173 62
172 62
173 63
173 64
175 64
173 64
175 64
175 64
173 64

So I thought about other ways of heating up the camera, I guess I'll try 1min photos. Maybe we can interpret those numbers ? Like to me it would seems 175 = 64°.

I'll make others tests soon.

More test, this time temperatures were took between 2min photos :

Code: [Select]
155 26
157 30
157 31
158 32
158 32
157 32
158 32

Again, not really reliable.

Edit : more

Code: [Select]
150 25
155 30
157 32
157 32

Code: [Select]
150 27
157 40
158 45
162 48
163 51
166 54
167 55
168 59
168 59

It seems like the function is not the same for lower temps...

Hi Hey

You don´t need to record a video clip, if that is not possible due to camera hickup. It is sufficient to switch on live view for heating the sensor. So, if you have some time, please try this:

1. Switch your cam off an let it cool down. The cam should have time enough to cool down.  A night on a balcony is no bad idea, I think.
2. If you wake up early next day, switch the cam on and immediately take a photo. That´s our first pair of values (exif-temp from the pic and raw temp from ML)
3. Turn on LV and take a pic every 1 or 2 minutes. The exif-temps from these pics and the raw values, you notice are the next values we need. The raw values should be read out immediately before or after a shoot

A wide spreaded temperature range is more important than many pictures at similar temperatures.

Gotcha, I'm going to try to do timelapse tonight and then do it tomorrow, although I think that the value not updating is really an issue, most of the time if I reboot the camera it will be 2 or 3 different.

550D
Nightly.2014Oct07.550D109

Code: [Select]
Raw Exif
152 28
154 40
155 49

158 55
158 56
158 58
161 60
161 60

162 60

A little weird. For the equation I took out the 162 because I think it was a fluke, it only registered 162 for a moment and I don't know if it was still there when I took the photo.

temp = -0.4062*(Raw^2) + 130.64*Raw - 10444
