Title: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on June 14, 2012, 04:50:54 PM
Canon 1100D / T3
Current state: Release Candidate Danger, Will Robinson! Danger!

(http://i.imgur.com/ML5SF.jpg)

The main issues that are holding ML are:
(http://www.backmic.com/i/all-bills-red.png) Blindly maintained (development happens without a physical camera in our hands)
(http://www.backmic.com/i/all-bills-red.png) Lack of physical buttons (for menu, for example)
(http://www.backmic.com/i/all-bills-red.png) Lack of RAM (only 128MB (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5071.msg166988;topicseen#msg166988); most other Rebel models have 256MB)
(http://www.backmic.com/i/all-bills-red.png) Low resolution sensor: 4290x2858 => 1430x952 theoretical max in LiveView
(http://www.backmic.com/i/all-bills-red.png) Slow SD interface (20MB/s, not enough for raw video)
(http://www.backmic.com/i/all-bills-red.png) Low display resolution (1-pixel wide items may be incorrectly displayed or aliased)

Short-term Todo List:
(http://www.backmic.com/i/all-bills-red.png) Enable raw video and silent photo capture (almost there)
(http://www.backmic.com/i/all-bills-red.png) Enable Lua scripting (feedback needed -- what works and what not?)
(http://www.backmic.com/i/all-bills-red.png) Make sure the stability tests are passing (feedback needed)
(http://www.backmic.com/i/all-bills-red.png) Write down which features work and which ones not (menu walkthrough, for testers)
(http://www.backmic.com/i/all-bills-red.png) Update the user guide (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=20455) (task common for all other camera models)
(http://www.backmic.com/i/all-bills-green.png) Done: Port 550D button hack to 1100D AE_COMP to open menu but retain the original long-press functionality.
(http://www.backmic.com/i/all-bills-green.png) Done: Start working on the fonts and display routines

Random bonus stuff:
(http://www.backmic.com/i/all-bills-green.png)Done: In-camera audio meters.

I will be posting updates here as I make progress -- Nanomad

The current version compiles and runs on 1100D.
RC 3: http://nanomad.magiclantern.fm/1100D/magiclantern-v2.3.1100D.RC3.zip Use development builds instead!!
Use the included .fir (for 1100D 1.0.5) to enable the bootflag.

Source code: http://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/src/tip/platform/1100D.105 (http://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/src/tip/platform/1100D.105)

Main builds: http://builds.magiclantern.fm/ (some features not working)
Development builds: http://builds.magiclantern.fm/experiments.html (feedback needed)

Hi,
I'm (once again) trying to get the 1100D port up-to date. If you don't mind, I'll hijack your original post and use this thread as a work-log :P

Missing constants
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on June 25, 2012, 09:46:22 AM
Here you go:
Code: [Select]
#define EVF_STATE (*(struct state_object **)0x4C34)
#define MOVREC_STATE (*(struct state_object **)0x5720)

Tip: for AV button, you may want to look at 550D implementation, where it's used for arrow key shortcuts (tweaks.c). This button has different codes, depending on the shooting mode. I've only considered P, Tv, Av, M and Movie.

Post by: nanomad on June 25, 2012, 11:19:10 AM
Just a quick question a1ex, as I hate eating pre-made foods...
How did you find these values  :o
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on June 25, 2012, 11:42:12 AM
Those are state objects ( http://magiclantern.wikia.com/wiki/StateObjects  (http://magiclantern.wikia.com/wiki/StateObjects), http://a1ex.bitbucket.io/ML/states/ (http://a1ex.bitbucket.io/ML/states/) ) - some sort of event-driven tasks which are pretty easy to hijack (that is, execute ML code at certain moments, like once per LiveView frame).

Most of those things contain strings with their name (for our example, we have EvfState and Evf\\EvfState.c).

Code: [Select]
ff5969ac: ff6db6d7 ; *'EvfState'
ff5969b0: 00000001 andeq r0, r0, r1
<state matrix follows below>

The state matrix (ff5969ac) is referenced from sub_FF0F73C8. So, with arm-console:
Code: [Select]
dec sub_FF0F73C8
[...]
CreateStateObject(name='EvfState', 0x0, addr=0xFF5969B0, inputs=14, states=10) => ret_CreateStateObject_FF0F73E8
*0x4C34 = ret_CreateStateObject_FF0F73E8
return ret_CreateStateObject_FF0F73E8

So, at 0x4C34, Canon firmware saves a pointer to EvfState object (see "struct state_object" in state-object.h).

Post by: a1ex on June 25, 2012, 11:57:02 AM
For the fonts: on 5Dc we have used a trick to downscale the bitmap coordinates on the fly (its resolution is 720x240). On 1100D, the screen resolution is 360x240 if I remember well, but the buffer size is 720x480, and the firmware does some sort of interpolation (is it nearest neighbor or something else?).

The medium font has a width of 12 pixels, and the bottom help text in ML assumes this width (max 60 chars). Probably a very tiny font rendered at width=6px and with pixels doubled could work a bit better than current medium font.

If not, can we consider a larger font (maybe the current small font with doubled pixels, that is, width=16px), and use horizontal scrolling of help text, like in rockbox?
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on June 25, 2012, 12:04:14 PM
I'll have a look into fonts after making the ML menu button work reliably (shouldn't take too long).

Thanks for all the help!
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on June 25, 2012, 02:50:33 PM
Also: how much free memory do you have on 1100D? The 60D, 550D and 600D had some problems with this (but now there are solutions, only that I need to know which one to apply).
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on June 25, 2012, 03:22:06 PM
Free Memory: 26K + 865K

Oh, and the overlay isn't showing up in the idle screen (the one that says P, ISO AUTO, AWB, MF, ...)
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on June 25, 2012, 03:30:18 PM
Hm... not much. Can you try compiling without -mlong-calls with a 32-bit gcc?

I'll fix this (need to do the same on 600D), but it may take a while.

The overlay means clock and other small extra info from outside LiveView? It's ifdef'ed out (debug.c, around line 1800).
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on June 25, 2012, 04:07:00 PM
Uhm, dunno if I'm doing something wrong, but the memory usage stays the same (26K + 865K)

This time I've used codesurcery 32bit arm gcc (4.6.3)
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on June 25, 2012, 04:25:56 PM
Remove -mlong-calls from Makefile.inc .
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on June 25, 2012, 04:30:53 PM
I've done that as soon as I switched to a 32bit compiler. Maybe it's the codesurcery compiler, dunno :o

Here's the patch I've created to make 1100D compile again

Applied memory fixes to 1100D (though you may need to double-check the addresses).

Well, it sure did something.

I'll run the test suite you posted now
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on June 27, 2012, 02:39:44 PM
Not bad. And if the screenshot feature works, it's probably enough. If not, we may have to move something from the big buffer to the small one.

The 60D gives random ERR70 if the second buffer has less than 1MB free. Probably I should also display the maximum contiguous block.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on June 27, 2012, 03:21:36 PM
This post contains current issues with ML

- [WONTFIX] Shutter and aperture working only in Exp Comp mode (applies to LV too)
- [L] Going from Exp Comp ON to OFF doesn't re-disable Shutter and Aperture
- [M] Focus peaking: peaks are off
- [M] Focus peaking - grayscale preview: Image is magenta
- [H] Magic Zoom: image is zoomed but it's being displayed wrong (weird aspect ratio, flickering)

Movie mode
- [H] ISO Stuff is not working

P Mode
- [L] Can't disable ExpSim
- [M] GlobalDraw - interaction with Canon graphics not working

I didn't finish testing as I have to go :P
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on June 27, 2012, 03:42:37 PM
Exp Comp - you mean expo override? So, the 1100D now has manual video controls, right?

Focus peaking and magic zoom off: this means that HD image buffer size is incorrect. You can take silent pics and use them to guess the right size. Howto: http://magiclantern.wikia.com/wiki/VRAM/550D

Magenta image: that's strange, on the 1100D even digic commands are different :)

The 600D has problems with ExpSim too, so it should be commented out in the 1100D too.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on June 27, 2012, 04:19:01 PM
Yes, sorry, exp override. So we do have manual video controls as long as we activate it. Which is nice  8)

Hey there!

I'm want to help with the development for T3/1100D, I have a lot of experience with C/C++, but I don't have experience with reverse engineering, is it enough to help?

Also, I have experience with graphic design, so maybe I can help develop a special font that will look better on 1100D low resolution screen.

There is anyway to render ML menus in 720x240 natively, then upscale it using nearest neighbor to 720x480? I think that's how it is done on the official firmware. What would be required to change in ML in order to do this? or is it not possible due to it requiring to rewrite core parts of ML?

By the way, is 1080p video option really completely locked down on this one? Or did you guys found out anything? I remember seeng something about this on ML Google Groups last year.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on July 01, 2012, 06:38:00 PM
Hi,
I'm glad you want to help. I suggest you start by setting up the toolchain to compile Magic Lantern and compile the latest release for the 1100D.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on July 01, 2012, 06:39:58 PM
The 5Dc renders ML menus at 720x240, so you can inspire from there. All the changes required for this can be in bmp.c / bmp.h / vram.c IMO.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: Arthur on July 01, 2012, 07:04:18 PM
Ok, I'll setup the toolchain on my PC here,
Then I'll look into 5Dc source.

I've seen some 5Dc constants in bmp.c and vram.c (CONFIG_5DC), won't some of them work on 1100D?

It seems that Canon is using some tricks to get most of 1100D display, can someone send me some screenshots of the original firmware menus? I want to take a look how Canon is doing it.

By the way, there is any specific reason ML font is looks like a system font?
I'm thinking about creating a more rounded font, similar to the one in the official firmware, I can do it from the scratch, pixel by pixel (I have some experience with pixel art for games and stuff).
This is specially useful for extremely small text, so I can tailor it to look good in low resolution.

Did anyone say in-camera audio level monitoring?

Patch: http://nanomad.magiclantern.fm/1100D/enable_mono_audio_meters.patch
Autoexec.bin: http://nanomad.magiclantern.fm/1100D/autoexec.audio.bin

Keep in mind this is HIGHLY UNSTABLE CODE
Your camera may explode

The 1100D probably uses the same audio IC the 600D does and has no AGC (the mic is kinda crappy though). Who's volunteering to tear apart his camera to find out?

Updated the first post a bit.

Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: 1% on July 14, 2012, 11:27:28 PM
Try some of the audio code from TL. If it works and we have the same audio IC it will make reversing easier. The registers should be the same in that whole family of lapis ICs.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on July 15, 2012, 02:22:11 PM
Will do.

You may want to backport this changeset: https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/changeset/63f5464711f5
to your repo. It should make things easier in the future when we'll have multiple audio IC around
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on July 15, 2012, 03:38:13 PM
I tried the tragic lantern code, but did not get any audio meters at all (while I can see audio levels with stock ML code)
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on July 15, 2012, 05:43:06 PM
Some random stuff i found in the firmware about Audio IC.
- Initialization is done at 0xFF06A388. This starts all the tasks needed by DryOS
- 0xFF06A2B0 is EnableAudioIC. It writes a bunch of 0xAxxx values to the AudioIC itself
Everythin related to audio is around there

- 0xFF069AAC is DumpAudioIcRegister. This function seems to dump all the registers somewhere, but it doesn't use the usual debug messages of dryos. Is there any other debug function?

I have everything skipped except for 600D stuff. Since the registers are different any ML writes to the "standard" registers change completely different things and interfere. I definitely had to neuter all of the writes and the override task.

Try some of the debug.c functions like power mic amp and unmute av. If they work that means you have the Oki/Lapis IC. Otherwise its a 3rd IC or something else. Also on 600D the registers are doubled, when you get a reg dump working you'll be able to see if its the same.

I should get audio remote shot working next...

Is the audio ic read/write address right on T3? 600D register dump should work on T3 too even if registers are different.

Well, maybe it's my setup. You can compile the 1100D from sources (get the 2.3  release source code, go into the platform/1100D.105  and type make). The autoexec.bin will work just fine but it will have some "useless" functions in it (which I had disabled in my code)

Alpha 1: http://nanomad.magiclantern.fm/1100D/magiclantern-v2.3.1100D.Alpha1.zip

Use this FIR (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/issue-attachment/1150/hudson/magic-lantern/1333128527.7/1150/ml-1100d-105.fir) (for 1100D 1.0.5) to enable the bootflag.

I DEMAND feedback if you try to run it.
Notes:
FPS override: Auto FPS selection doesn't work but you can increase the timerA to get the desired FPS manually
ML menu in Video mode can only be exited using half shutter press

As always, remember that is HIGHLY EXPERIMENTAL CODE , use it at your own risk. Read the Install.txt CAREFULLY and follow the optional/suggested steps too!

Post by: wave on August 19, 2012, 02:32:08 PM
Nanomad first thank for your hard work...I have shortly tested this alpha
1. ML menu is available only on P and movie mode(with short press on Av button)
2. In P mode-Expo if I change white balance from auto to any other number I cant reverse anymore to auto wb(or I dont know)
3. Movie mode-If I turn Exp.override to ON the shutter speed number are going somehow like 1.0.000 or 1/2941.2.3,I cant change to       1/50,1/60 etc
5.I can see the AUDIO tab but I cant go in
4.And for the end my camera crashed 3,4 times while the FPS override was ON,if I find the crash logs files I will send to you or upload here if u want :)
That was the bad side :)
From the options that I like are HDR is now in full potential because of working submenu button Q
Follow focus is really cool option also the rack focus
Font are much much clearer and also readable without glasses :)
PS: On image review zoom in function is not ok
I hope I helped :)

1. ML menu is available only on P and movie mode(with short press on Av button) <- Fixed, sometimes you have to double tap the button ... especially in LV
2. In P mode-Expo if I change white balance from auto to any other number I cant reverse anymore to auto wb <- Just set AutoWB from Canon's Q menu :P
3. Movie mode-If I turn Exp.override to ON the shutter speed number are going somehow like 1.0.000 or 1/2941.2.3,I cant change to       1/50,1/60 etc <- ML Uses "exact" apertures. The LV bottom bar will display the corresponding "Canon" Aperture
5.I can see the AUDIO tab but I cant go in <- Fixed
4.And for the end my camera crashed 3,4 times while the FPS override was ON,if I find the crash logs files I will send to you or upload here if u want <- What were you changing? FPS override is super-hacked on the 1100D btw

Quick question nanomad, are the features of exp.override supposed to be functional at all when I turn it to ON or Auto in any of the shooting modes, including movie mode? Bcuz it does not seem to be working at all for me in any mode certainly not movie mode, or am I doing something wrong???
     Has anybody else had this issue?       
     Also sometimes when I press the display button on my camera to find out more about the exp.override feature (Very cool help function by the way) my T3 crashes.
     I will keep you up on whats going on, thanks
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3 *** Beta 1 Now Available For Download ***
Post by: nanomad on August 20, 2012, 05:50:02 PM
T3 crashing on the help menu is due to the old memory allocator I think. The new one has some serious corruption issues and had to be disabled...

Exp override should work in movie mode only. You set it to auto (ON) then just hit set on ISO / Shutter / Aperture and use the dial to select your value. Sometimes it gives strange values but you can see the brightness change anyway...

@ nanomad you're right, in movie my buffer meter is startin off green but it quickly turns red very fast and gives me a message about my recording stopping automatically. However, I began using ML with a class 6, 4mb SD card on the first Alpha test you released and had no prob with my photos or movie mode, but now with all the xtras like exp override and fps override etc, Im having this problem in movie mode. Even after you uploaded the new autoexec.bin.  Am I having issues because I have a class 6 and I need a class 10 SD card?
Other than my movie mode rec stopping Im not having any audio meter issues. Im going to Wally World to pick up a class 10, 16mb SD card just in case LOL

Post by: nanomad on August 25, 2012, 09:33:43 AM
If your buffer is turning red make sure that you didn't set a high CBR value. ML does not interfere with recording unless you override CBR or FPS

I feel like the 1100D port is almost ready for inclusion in the official unified tree. I'd like everyone to report every issue he has seen and how to reproduce it. I'll start:

 - Stability test crashes (know bug, fix in progress. This affects all ML cameras)
 - Audio meters stop working after going into play mode and before starting to record again (Needs pics of the internals of the 1100D to work out the audio section of ML)

Installed this today and it went smoothly and great. Had a few crashes as well as a few scares fearing that I had bricked my camera but all is good now. I have 7 crash logs to give you guys, I'll post them below.


Not sure if these will help at all at increasing stability but here they are. If I discover a way to make the camera crash thats replicable I'll be sure to post the steps and logs for it. For now I'll be happily testing away. Thanks for porting this, its really awesome.

Nanomad there is one "small" issue
When I put my cable and turn ON the camera when connecting to PC,EOS utility refuse to start
But if I turn On camera first and then put my cable is OK,before it was not the case

I never touched USB code so it shouldn't be anything I did  :o

@nanomad, Ok Im using RC 2 and something weird just happened  :o ... FPS override just completely disappeared from the ML menu. And it did not create a crash log. And Im still having buffering issues when I change the FPS in movie mode even after I did like u said and I left the bit rate at default
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3 *** RC 2 Now Available For Download ***
Post by: nanomad on August 28, 2012, 09:31:20 AM
You hid the menu options  ::)
Press the canon menu button while in ML menu to unhide them

As for the buffer issues, I can't do much. Either your card is too slow or you need to disable stuff from live view (like the graphs)

What is maximum Fps number possible with 1100d with fps override?
I can set it to 65 but it is true or false?

hey guys, how do you take a 24p shot? only 25p and 30p is supported for this cam right?
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3 *** RC 2 Now Available For Download ***
Post by: nanomad on August 28, 2012, 03:12:47 PM
The maximum FPS is 30 (or 25 if you're in 25p), of course. And you can go to 24, just use FPS override with Optimize for: exact FPS

The camera simply crashes when resolution is changed, i didn't try higher FPS tough. Maybe it's worth a shot.

Oh, and there's no way we can record at full hd or lower res, the encoder is hardcoded at 720p

It didn't work out very well  :(
Anyway, I've enabled quick rate/protect images in play mode (use the LV key).

About quick shortcuts in Live View, what button do you prefer?
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3 *** RC 2 Now Available For Download ***
Post by: Brand Brand on August 30, 2012, 04:49:48 PM
@nanomad is quick rate when we select how many stars to give an image/movie  ??? ... Blame it on Thursday LOL, and maybe Q for the shortcuts  :P otherwise its up to you, you've been on point on everything as usual  8)
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3 *** RC 2 Now Available For Download ***
Post by: nanomad on August 30, 2012, 05:03:16 PM
Yep it is that. It is fully customizable so you can select wheter the LV button in play mode will:
- Rate the image (one star per click, then goes back to 0)
- Protect the image to avoid deletion (I prefer this one actually)

For now I ruled out Q since it's the only way to access canon's AF modes with LV. I'll try to see if any of the buttons has a PRESS/UNPRESS event so that we can connect shortcuts enable to a long press

Post by: nanomad on September 07, 2012, 03:08:18 PM
It is related to smooth ISO adjustment while recording so that you can smoothly transition from a bright to a dark scene and vice-versa (like when entering an house) . It is something that canon firmware already does if you leave everything on auto

Hey guys, Jon here.

Totally new to the forum, not new to Canon DSLR and have been using this RC for a few weeks now. I am also a long time video student who has a pretty good background so far (if I do say so myself.)

I wanted to join in and test features if still need but, I am having issues and confusion about certain features.

First of, does everyone else get the "purple lines" on screen when dropping down below ISO200 in video mode?
Second, is there any possible way to do 60FPS, or 48? I read the comments above but I just want to see/figure out if I can help in achieving this goal.

Thanks,

JM

As I understand it magic lantern launches along side canons firmware every time you start up the camera. Magic lantern doesn't replace canon's firmware in the memory of the camera so it relatively hard to brick your camera. The most dangerous part is upgrading Canon's firmware to the current version which really isn't very hard. If you want to remove magic lantern just format the card from inside the camera. If anything watch some tutorials and read up on the wiki abit.

Post by: nanomad on September 09, 2012, 06:25:24 PM
Keep in mind that the 1100D is still experimental so there's the possibility of actually screwing up things (although I've yet to experience it)

I installed RC 2.1 the other day, and I noticed that when I was recording, my exposure was changing at a constant rate, causing the movie to brighten and darken. Exposure override was set to on (auto), and I also had the same result in just on. I had my expsoure set within ML...but it seemed like the canon auto expsoure kept trying to override it. Any help is appreciated.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3 *** RC 2 Now Available For Download ***
Post by: nanomad on September 09, 2012, 07:41:07 PM
The easiest way is to actually delete ML config and try to reproduce the issue...you probably had HDR video on by the sound of it

Post by: colinjshelton on September 10, 2012, 06:31:35 PM
hdr video was not on...I'll try and record a video and show you what I'm talking about. It seems like my shutter angle changes by real small increments, like if i set it in the ML menu to 56.5, it'll change between 56.5 and 56.3 for a couple seconds, then calm down.

Everything depends on how cheap canon wanted to be. The 1100D is a dumbed down 600D so everything that works there *should* work here minus hardware differences

Hey, Bug report.

The Magic Zoom is bugging out after a picture is taken. it freezes the little zoom box and wont work until restart.

The settings are:
Trigger mode : ZoomIn  (+)
Size : Medium
Position : NorthWest
Magnification : 2:1
Focus Confirm : SplitScreen


Second bug/ problem is the Overlay.

the overlay gets slightly fucked up by the standard Fstops iso shutter speed all of those just randomly overlaps the histogram waveform and those reedouts from the bottom of the screen.

Post by: nanomad on September 17, 2012, 11:18:12 PM
The first one is new, the second one it's not a bug, it's a stupid feature of canon's firmware .... even with "no overlays" it insists on drawing a couple of things

Hello guys, great work!

I can't seem to find but what can work on the T3 with the latest (RC2) version for video?

Manual exposure for ISO, aperture and shutter?
FPS Control? Like up to 35 FPS and as slow as 5FPS?
Other resolutions? 1920x108030/24FPS?
Higher bitrate? I think the top is 40Mbps?
External mic via installing it?
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3 *** RC 2 Now Available For Download ***
Post by: nanomad on September 18, 2012, 10:50:35 PM
Manual video exposure: Working
FPS Control? You can only go down
Other resolutions? Nope. ML never did that
Higher bitrate? Sure, as long as you've got a fast SD card
External Mic? No need for ML to do that, just open the camera and solder a female 3.5mm female Jack to the current mic wires.

Manual video exposure: Working (...)

Thanks, Nanomad! The thing is that I might get a T3 or a T1i and I wanna know which is better for video with ML, definitely no 1080p is a con for the T3, the T1i has 1080 but then max at 20FPS, I've read somewhere else in the forum that it can't be modified but at least I thought it was possible to tweak the codec to just add 4 more frames to make it 24FPS like with the 600D/60D at 35 FPS or as fast as the latter cameras. Do you think it might be possible in the future? Or nobody's working on it.

I've got no idea, honestly.
But if you are into videos I suggest to save some money and go for the 550D or the 600D instead of the 1100D

I would like to say thank you to nanomad and the other people who made this 1100D ML version possible !

I have a few questions :

I know that the 1100d doesn't have "spot metering" option , is it a functionnality added by Magic lantern ?

Does magic lantern add control of the Bit Rate and in fact what is the maxium reachable on the 1100D with a fast SD card like a Class 10  ?

Thanks a lot and keep up this great work !

Post by: nanomad on September 23, 2012, 06:02:00 PM
Bitrate control works, but the maximum depends on YOUR card.
Spot metering is missing. I'd love to enable it (I've got a 600D but I couldn't identify it in the firmware) but I'm still fighting with liveview image corruption....
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3 *** RC 2 Now Available For Download ***
Post by: Entracte on September 23, 2012, 07:10:40 PM
Thank you nanomad  :)
Yes spot metering is a big miss  , if you can do it it will be a major add for the T3  8)

For the Bitrate ok i will test it for myself when my T3 will come .

And what is the problem with the liveview image corruption ?

I forgot to ask if there is a list of all options that work on the 1100d ?

The beauty of the T3 is that everything, except audio controls, is working.
The "liveview corruptions" happens when you have zebras (of focus peaking) enabled and you take a shot. After that the image needs to be cleaned up (e.g. by pressing display)

Can you check the value of DLG_SIGNATURE? (print it with a NotifyBox from zebra.c where it's referenced).

Sounds good ! but so spot metering is another thing that doesn't work , right ?

RC3 is OUT
http://nanomad.magiclantern.fm/1100D/magiclantern-v2.3.1100D.RC3.zip

What's new:
- Quite a lot of stuff that comes from bleeding edge ML code
- Fixed live view corruption
- Enabled compiler optimizations

Since this build has optimizations enabled I'd like you to test it properly and report any bugs, even the most insignificant ones.

About bit-rate: I've noticed that the 1100D buffers struggles to keep up with modest BR with audio on so I suggest you use an external source

What firmware do you have on your camera? You need to update to canon's 1.0.5 first then use the "ML updater"

Ok, I've found 2 bugs

When your in live view mode while in a picture taking setting, if you try to change any settings in the magic lantern menu, they won't change and the menu closes.

Set camera to manual mode > click live view button > press av button to go to magic lantern menu > press ok on a setting > menu closes and setting isn't changed.

The second I haven't been able to duplicate reliably yet, but the screen likes to tint colors.

Do you have any function assigned to SET?

It's not caused by the warning screen, that one goes away after first key press.

Defishing should work if you use shoot_malloc instead of AllocateMemory. Need to find out how to free it though.

Fixed the HQ silent pics in movie mode, we can grab (c)raw 1280x720 frames.

Too bad they are too big to be saved to card as a video stream otherwise we could do decent fullHD in post-processing. Here's how a 720p craw file looks like when upscaled to 1080p

So, a1ex managed to fix the bug that was causing weird images with low ISO in movie mode (it was a bug in ML code that affected all cameras)

I'll go thorugh all the posts again but the only thing that should be left is the damn focus peaking while on standby in movie mode....

Manual video exposure: Working
FPS Control? You can only go down
Other resolutions? Nope. ML never did that
Higher bitrate? Sure, as long as you've got a fast SD card
External Mic? No need for ML to do that, just open the camera and solder a female 3.5mm female Jack to the current mic wires.

I just bought a Canon T3 and I was sad that there wasn't any manual settings for video. I installed ML with no problems but I still haven't figured out how to set manual video exposure. I tried finding a tutorial, but so far I haven't had any luck.

Pretty much treading on unfamiliar ground, can anyone help me out?

I read that on the user guide on the site too, but so far, every time i set the settings on the ML menu and switch to movie mode, the settings don't apply and the exposure settings are still automatic.

am i doing something wrong? or is it some kind of bug with the RC3 firmware

So this is the issue I am having with any ISO below 200, in movie mode of course. Is there any reason it should do this? It happens whether GlobalDraw is on or off, and focus peaking/zebras etc.

Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3 *** RC 3 Now Available For Download ***
Post by: nanomad on September 29, 2012, 08:30:13 PM
Hit the Q button in the iso option and turn off Highlight tone priority if you want to use ISO below 200.

Alex fixed this yesterday night so it's not in the 1100D build yet (I'd like to fix the offset of focus peaking while in movie standby first)

i deleted ML settings, and i tried with highlight tone priority on and off, still get the fluctuating iso : /

Right now i'm trying to see what sets it off. so far the way i can get it to sure fire fluctuate is to put some sort of light source or bright area dead center. sometimes it does it, sometimes it don't. perhaps it depends on my exposure settings.

To use smooth exposure you just need to set it to on and then it will kick in every time you change any of the exposure paramters in ML menu (aperture, speed or ISO)

Thank you, guys for all of your hard work.  I, like many others, learned to live with the capped potential of the T3. Now my camera has new life, haha.

One question, though.  I see that in the movie mode, Canon's Digital Gain can be pushed up one more stop of ISO (12800) instead of the native of just 6400.

Is this just exclusive to movie mode or can you make that available for the photo modes as well?

Also is the HDR bracketing not working for everyone? When i try to use it the camera starts cycling through menus and taking pictures on its own and i have to do a battery pull.

Very high ISO is only available in movie mode since we are digitally pushing the ISO of the movie buffer.
HDR bracketing works fine here. Try clearing canon's settings, you may have something that interferes with it

Hi everybody,

I installed the RC3 on my 1100D monday and start testing it. It's my first try on ML so I'm quite uncomfortable with it, and maybe some bugs are not ...

I followed the install procedure in the zip file, and reset camera settings.

1) Strange value (-2147483) in FPS override submenu
http://imgur.com/a/V4huY#0 (http://imgur.com/a/V4huY#0)

2) Bottom help said Wheel to change value, but wheel change the menu section (Movie / Image / Display ...)
http://i.imgur.com/axrNJ.jpg (http://i.imgur.com/axrNJ.jpg)

3) In expo menu, the LV display values can't be changed
http://imgur.com/a/V4huY#2 (http://imgur.com/a/V4huY#2)

4) Despite Arrow/SET Shorcuts options set as in first image (defaults), when in video mode the up/down keys are moving the AF white rectangle, so I can't edit settings in LV mode.
http://imgur.com/a/V4huY#3 (http://imgur.com/a/V4huY#3)
http://imgur.com/a/V4huY#4 (http://imgur.com/a/V4huY#4)

5) Despite ISO set to 320, LV report a record in 6400 (auto I think). When I go back to M mode to check if value was saved, it still shows 320.
http://imgur.com/a/V4huY#5 (http://imgur.com/a/V4huY#5)
To access ML Menu I switch to M mode on the camera, and go back to video mode to see if values are set. Is it the nice way ? Are setting kept for each mode or shared ?


6) Several crash in help menu navigation, can't remember the error, but something like 70. Will try to find a way to reproduce.

7) Where I activated Exp. Override and staying on the menu entry, the value sometimes change in an strange way, showed 0.0000 and other values I don't remember. I'll try do get it repoduced and capture it.


Thanks for your help.

Post by: nanomad on October 04, 2012, 02:02:13 PM
Thanks for reporting

1) Definitely a bug, probably related to the fact that the 1100D has a strange internal timer
2) That's because we don't have the back wheel :P... I'll remove it since it's useless
3) Somehow it shows the 3 buttons while it should only show one fixed value, I'll probably hide that menu option as it's useless on this camera
4) This is an open discussion. The camera lacks a free physical button to enable shortcuts....if you have any ideas please say so.
4) Checking it
6) The camera has a low amount of free memory so the help function isn't really stable.
7) Checking it

2) refers to the top wheel; the back wheel is always used for up/down navigation. The top wheel moves left/right normally, but in submenus and in the edit mode it changes current value.

I always configure my video settings in video mode, I think you should do the same. And make sure you have exposure override to ON or Auto (otherwise it won't work on the 1100D)

it may be something in my settings, but i'm not sure what. I've already tried clearing my settings on both my camera and ML, but still no luck.

may I ask how you what are your settings on your 1100d? maybe if i set it to your settings the problem might disappear

Hello nanomad. when the camera is in LiveView (video or photo), it is difficult to enter the menu of ML, AV must be pressed repeatedly to enter ML menu. But in viewfinder mode, always enters the ML menu OK.

thanks

Yes, it's a known issue. Guessing the state of the on-screen "AV compensation icon" is kinda hard and you have to press the button a couple of times to make it register properly

Yes I did and pressed Q to bring up the submenu for it, and neither the timer values or the actual fps value change from 0, so when I close it the fps override value stays at 0

There are shorter (and more helpful) logs under ML/LOGS directory.

Maybe they should be moved back to root dir, so user notices them easier?

Canon logs (created with Canon code) can't be moved easily.

You can now use nightly builds (http://nanomad.magiclantern.fm/nightly/) to evaluate the status of the port. You can keep using this thread to report bugs related to the 1100D if you want (but use the general bug reports area if you think it affects multiple models). I'll keep updating this thread every time me or someone else makes a 1100D-related change

Installed the nightly build (2012Oct11).
Prefs --> Image review settings... --> SET+MainDial: Compare Images.
Take a few pictures. View a picture then press the SET button and turn the wheel. The screen turns green. The second time I tried the screen turns 'noisy'.
Prefs --> Image review settings... --> SET+MainDial: Exposure Fusion.
View a picture then press SET and turn the wheel. The screen turns whitewith a 'noisy' bottom.
Exposure Adjust works fine.

Enter ML menu, go to Help, scroll down to "Complete user guide" and press the Q-button. A pop-up menu appears and the ML menu freezes. Press LV or Zoom-in or shutter release to escape.
If the ML menu is frozen and you press the Menu button the camera is completely locked. Remove and re-insert the battery.

I haven't checked if this was the case in the RC3 release.

Copied the nightly build (2012Oct13) over the previous one (2012Oct11).
Switched on the camera and the camera crashed.
I tried to make a picture of the screen containing a message, but by the time I had my camera the message was gone.
The logfile is saved here:
http://www41.zippyshare.com/v/12066098/file.html

FWIW: camera; Tv, 1/1000, ISO400, One Shot, RAW, Cont. Shooting, Eval metering, 18-135 IS lens.

Switched off and switched on the camera and everything works fine.

Tested the "Compare Images" and "Exposure Fusion" functions and they work o.k.
Great work.

I will test the other functions in the coming days.
Keep up the good work !!

The camera is now reporting 346K + 353K so low memory could be the cause.

[off topic]
@ilguercio
In the early days of computing all the programmers had was 640K.
It forced them to program cleaver and be as memory efficient as possible.
The ML writers are smart enough to deal with the given memory space.

then I take a picture of the exiting numer 2
(http://imageshack.us/scaled/landing/252/numbertwo.jpg)

and last i take a picture of the obvious number 3.
(http://imageshack.us/scaled/landing/542/numberthree.jpg)

I check the settings,
(http://imageshack.us/scaled/landing/835/checksettings.jpg)

Then I press "Play" and I see the number 3, I also check if number 2 is present (go one left) and check for number 1 (another one left).
Now I press "SET" and keep it pressed, then I turn the dial one notch to the right, with the "SET" button still keeping pressed, and again one notch to the right with the "SET" button still pressed and I see the fused numbers.

Hi,
I got a little problem with the movie mode.
I installed magic lantern on 1100D today and right now I'm using the 2012-10-13 nightly build.
So the problem is that i can't change the aperture, well i can change the value but nothing happens.
It's probably something I'm doing wrong but I don't know what.
cheers

Post by: Mediocre45 on October 14, 2012, 04:02:47 AM
I just tried a different lens (canon ef 50mm 1.8 II) and with that lens changing the aperture went well.
So the problem only arises when you using my kit-lens. Could that still be a firmware related thing or is it just my lens?

ML recognized the action (notice the text at top-left) but it's not updating the image buffers.

Check the other SET+MainDial actions, also check zebras in play mode (seems to be on DISP key). Maybe the image buffer isn't pointing to the one being displayed.

A couple of things I noticed tonight while working with the T3. I have a Canon 70-200 f/4 L. The chart says it should output the focal length and the distance. The focal length always reads 2560 and no distance. I checked the other two lenses and the focal length remained the same no matter which lens was attached. Didn't receive distance or focal length on a Tamron 70-300 f-4 5.6 SP Di VC. Don't know if that one sends distance data. I had problems going over 1.4 on the CBR bitrate increase. Using a Transend class 10 8Gb card.

The HD buffers should be fixed by EDMAC macros. But in play mode, these don't seem to be used.

Try this: in get_lcd_422_buf(), simply return YUV422_LV_BUFFER_DISPLAY_ADDR.

Ok, now it's getting weird  :o
Your camera is the first to report different image buffers ....
Quick check list
- Did you ever upgrade the firmware on your camera?
- When did you buy it? Where? (US/Asia/Europe)
- What's the model # written on the bottom of the camera? e.g. DS126291

Warmest greetings from a new ML user with a 1100D!  ;D

I installed RC3 with no problems and used it during my holidays. Smooth sailing so far, but didn't try much. Only ordinary foto shooting and filming to test if ML gets into the way. Activating/deactivating the ML menu is working great. The only issue I have is the changed behavior when zooming into my taken pictures in view mode: it immediately jumps to maximal zoom, is this intentional?

My next goals: as I'm a developer, I'm trying to get the development toolchain working. But don't expect anything useful from me...  ::)

Cheers,
Thomas

Yes, black is usually considered underexposed :P

Fast zebras are computed by the image processor (not by ML), and it thinks there's image data in the bottom bar.

I had the same thing with the nightly build "2012Oct11".
Formatted the SD card in the camera and copied the nightly build 2012Oct13 and enabled the bootflag again.
Now the Exposure Fusion and Compare Images functions work correctly.

I have firmware 1.0.5 and a 16Gb SDHC class4 memory card.

Wave's camera is allocating different memory areas. I managed to fix the LV issues by using a more general approach but as you can see it's not quite right yet (only expo fusion is broken)

I would like to include 1100D 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?

Maybe you could use an index file or something, in a fixed location, where we can say:

Code: [Select]
[stable]
v2.5
www.ml.fm/ml25.zip

[ports in progress]
1100D/T3
www.ml.fm/ml-1100D.zip

5D classic
www.ml.fm/ml-5Dc.beta4.zip

etc, you get the idea. You can also get some feeds for nightly builds.

I can update the stable release parameters because it changes no so often but I need somebody who makes the rest. I think a developer who makes a new beta version can maintain the file for EOScard too.
for example port1100D.info:

dear friends

I have Canon 1100D with 1.04 firmware and with 18-55mm IS II lens. i don't want to update firmware because i think its not necessary.
So i want to install magic lantern on it. And i have 16GB SD Class 10 Card.

Please tell me is it possible that i can install magic lantern on this 16GB Card with normal way? And please send me the link where i could find the magic lantern files to download?

good luck
and thanks in advance

It is necessary to upgrade to 1.0.5 to use ML.
If you're too lazy to do it just send me the camera and i'll do it for you.

Post by: kihlbahkt on October 16, 2012, 07:22:15 PM
Artstylish,

There is a download link for the stable v2.3 version on this site.

Based on your post it seems you have not used ML previously. I would NOT recommend that you start with alpha releases of ML.

You need to update your firmware as indicated for your cam model. If start out doing things wrong with untested releases you are asking for trouble.

It's exposure fusion in play / review mode.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: mikatrash on October 17, 2012, 12:31:03 AM
Okay, so I can't say it work, but don't know how to test it. Can't find how to test the exposure fusion.

- I tried activating "Anamorphic preview"  to 2:1, and now the display blink and show black images (can do a video if you need it)
- RGB zebras in live view : activated it, but nothing's displayed
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on October 17, 2012, 01:04:03 AM
Uhm, anamorphic preview -> Should squeeze the image veritcally in liveview (so half black, half image).

Exposure fusion:
Take a couple of  pictures of the same scene with different exposures,
Open ML menu, go to prefs, Image review settings, SET+MainDial -> Exposure fusion (try compare images too).
Go into "Play mode", select the first of the HDR images, hold SET and turn the top wheel
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: mikatrash on October 17, 2012, 01:14:39 AM
- In anamorphic preview, half image black (top), but the displayed part isn't clean, like if it is lagging. And at the bottom of the screen there's a noisy pink bar made of dots.
-> http://www.hemsiprod.fr/public/1100d/2012-10-17%2001.04.10.mp4 (http://www.hemsiprod.fr/public/1100d/2012-10-17%2001.04.10.mp4)

- Expo fusion is working, but whan 'computing' the image or something like that, some small black bars appeared at the bottom of screen for a few second. When I turn the wheel, there's an overlay with '9 images' in the top left corner.

- Compare image is working too, but the top bar hide a part of the image

Hi Nanomad,

The issue that kapueblo had with the changing exposurestuff sometimes happens to me as well when i point at a bright light source. But in my case i can see the aperture blades moving. Does this help you any further?

Cheers!

Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on October 17, 2012, 09:28:19 PM
In what mode? Movie? or Photo? Do you have exposure override or exposure lock enabled?
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: Mediocre45 on October 18, 2012, 02:43:39 AM
In the movie mode. Yes to exposure override, no to exposure lock
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on October 18, 2012, 10:00:08 AM
Try enabling shutter lock (not exposure lock, my bad) and disable gradual expo or fps override if they are ON
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: Mediocre45 on October 18, 2012, 04:02:51 PM
I did like you suggested, enabled shutter lock and made sure gradual exposure and fps override were disabled, but still happens.
To further clarify; It's not something that always happens, but when it does my aperture is set to high f stops like around f16 to f22 and it also usually happens when i'm trying to film something light in a dark room. If i try to film my monitor at night for instance. This also only happens with my kit lens, so it could be just something with the lens that is off or something :p
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on October 18, 2012, 05:03:16 PM
Could be, the manual exposure in movie mode is an unexpected result thanks to the 600D and 1100D sharing the same hardware ;)

Good night. I have a problem, I have nightly 18/10/2012. In video mode manually, when I change the aperture value, exposure of the image changes little or nothing, but the value f / changing. Exp override: ON - Sutter Lock: OFF - Gradual Expo.: OFF

Manual exposure in 1100D seems to be actually sort of a debugging feature.

Nanomad: can you hexdump LVAE_STRUCT? Maybe it's some offset that we need to change, and we don't know about it.

Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on October 19, 2012, 11:47:45 AM
Actually, there are two functions called
EP_SetManualExposureMode @ 0xFF28A3F8
that sets
*(LVAE_STRUCT + 0x74) = 1 -> Manual Expo ON
*(LVAE_STRUCT + 0x74) = 0 -> Manual Expo OFF

and
EP_SetMovieManualExposureMode @ 0xFF28A2C4
that sets
*(LVAE_STRUCT + 0x78) = 1 -> Manual MOVIE Expo ON
*(LVAE_STRUCT + 0x78) = 0 -> Manual MOVIE Expo OFF
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on October 19, 2012, 11:51:32 AM
Try them, look in update_lvae_for_autoiso_n_displaygain for hints about what they do. I was able to limit minimum auto ISO in movie mode with this trick, but not the maximum one.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on October 19, 2012, 01:48:49 PM
To anyone having issues with exposure in movie mode, try this autoexec.bin and report back please

(I'm calling "lvae_setmoviemanualcontrol" in addition to "lvae_setcontrolbv")

Post by: Javier_Marquez on October 19, 2012, 07:11:03 PM
Hi, I have the same issue with manual exposure in movie mode, i have downloaded the lastest nightly and replaced the autoexec.bin but it doesnt seem to solve the problem. Everything is OFF exept the exposure override, the audio meters and the magic zoom.
Sometimes when i point the camera to a bright light it tries to close the aperture to the one i set but then it opens again.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: Mediocre45 on October 19, 2012, 09:22:27 PM
I tried the autoexec.bin but the aperture still doesnt change in movie mode.
But like i said, i dont have this problem with my EF 50mm 1.8 II lens. Maybe someone could try with other lenses if this info helps you in any way?
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on October 19, 2012, 09:23:54 PM
I'll be honest with you... I've checked the code again and couldn't see why this is happening.
- What lens are you using?
- What canon settings are you using? List every setting available in movie mode
- What ML settings? (upload the ML/config folder)
- When did you buy your camera? Where? (EU/US/JP) Did it came with 1.0.5 pre-installed?

edit: Interesting, maybe it happens with non-constant aperture lenses. I'll try the kit too (I usually shoot with the 28 or the 50)
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on October 19, 2012, 09:32:55 PM
Well well well, it does indeed happen with kit lens. Looks like the exposure control is kicking in on this lens. I think it's because the aperture isn't constant and it's checking if the value is correct
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: Mediocre45 on October 19, 2012, 10:28:32 PM
aah ok that does make sense :P Do you think there is a way of overriding this?
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on October 19, 2012, 11:30:23 PM
I need as many lenses tested as you can, so far only the 18-55 EF-S III is having this issue. But it's also the only "new" lens that I have (the others are 20+ years old)

I'd also like to know if you are hearing the aperture blades moving when the expo is changin or not
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: Mediocre45 on October 20, 2012, 12:10:24 AM
I only have the kit lens and the 50mm 1.8 II (with which the aperture feature works flawlessly) but i'll see if i can get my hands on some other lenses.

I can hear the aperture blades moving when this happens:

This happens when the camera is pointed directly at a light source and i think when the aperture value in ml isnt the same as the aperture the lens is actually set to, because this happens with different aperture values.

It doesnt happen everytime but i cant really figure out what sets it off yet.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: Canon Amateur on October 20, 2012, 08:27:25 AM

Go to movie mode, set expo override ON, expose for the dark scene then pan from a  dark scene to a bright scene (e.g. the computer montor) and the bug should kick in.

Go to movie mode, set expo override ON, expose for the dark scene then pan from a  dark scene to a bright scene (e.g. the computer montor) and the bug should kick in.

When I set my 1100D in movie mode I can adjust the aperture by pressing the AV button and turn the wheel. I see the screen change in brightness
When I set Expo Override ON, the aperture goes to 5.6 and the screen is very dark.
When I press the AV button and turn the wheel the aperture says at 5.6 and the brightness doesn't change.
I tried several lenses on both sides of the zoom range and every lens I use shows this same effect.
Aparently I do not have the bug. At this time the Expo override ON is useless for me because the aperture stays at 5.6.
I use the latest nightly build (2012Oct21).
Used lenses:
Canon 70-200 F/4 L
Canon 18-135 IS (f/3.5-5.6)
Tokina AT-X 80-400 (f/4.5-5.6)
The 18-55 kitlens is sold so I cannot test that lens.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on October 21, 2012, 11:01:03 PM
Expo override ON means YOU have to set the exposure from ML menu (ISO, Shutter speed and aperture)  ::)

I have Canon 1100D with 18-55 IS II kit lens. and currently my camera has 1.0.4 Firmware version. But on net there is 1.0.5 Firmware update is available and in the installation instructions manual describes that when this firmware update 1.0.5 installed properly it shows.

x.x.x   these three symbols shows new firmware updated. its called 1.0.5.

My question is: Do i really need to update firmware 1.0.4 to 1.0.5 for magic lantern? and if yes, then are these  x.x.x  correctly display numbers when i shall install new firmware update successfully?

is that all ok   x.x.x   ?????

this is the link of update file. In this Zip file you find a Instructional PDF and a Firmware update.fir file. So in instructional manual says about this  x.x.x  figures.

My question is: I have 16GB, Class 10 card in my camera. So do i need to make bootable this card before installing this version of Magic Lantern on it?

I studied a little bit about Magic Lantern so i found that {larger then 4GB cards must be make bootable before installing the Magic lantern on that} is this correct?

do i need to make bootable my 16GB card? if yes then how? please send me the link of bootable files???? where is "EOS utility" link to make card bootable? or any other way to make bootable if necessary?

- Then overwrite the files with the ones from the latest nightly build (RC3 is old stuff and shouldn't be used) nanomad.magiclantern.fm/nightly

I love you my friend nanomad
I made it. I successfully update nightly build.

now please tell me is there any option available that when i want to shoot with my camera with normal settings as before installation of Magic lantern? and then when i want to shoot with Magic lantern features then i want to access the magic lantern as well?

You know i want to just disable and enable magic lantern?
thank you very much friend

Keep SET pressed throughout the boot procedure.

The ML menu has an option to delete the config file (you need to power off and then on the camera for it to take effect). You can also delete the content of the ML/SETTINGS/ folder yourself.

As a suggestion, always do a "clear settings" from canon menu before installing ML for the first time

I was in Video Mode then i check the HDR Button and took ISO 100 from Magic lantern manu. then press the movie recording button from camera body. Now what happed.

my video exposure changes second by second. when i finish making of 2 minutes of video. then the final result was very bad. my video is flickering with high lighting bolts.

it seems like that my video is ok on behind the lighting bolt sparks flashes.
what happed? why was the video like that?

and please tell me where to select the Full HD video settings from Magic lantern Menu? is this option available in magic lantern?

Despite all the effort put into warning the users about the features and the presence of a user manual people keep asking the same questions over and over. No wonder these are their first messages, the time spent writing the post could have been used to read the manual thoroughly.
Looks like somebody needs to test the users at the first startup before letting them fire up ML.

Hello nanomad. Simon recently discovered the audio chip. You know if you can implement audio controls?. In the change logs, I see few changes for the 1100D are you still working on it? About what?

Thanks for the work.

Well, truth be told, the audio IC of the 1100D is rather weak. Lowering the volume means the mic won't pic up anything...the same goes for the AGC

I have a test build ready if you're interested but it's full of bugs (but at least it shows the 0 potential of the 1100D audio IC)

Hey everyone, I had discovered the MagicLantern Firmware a few months ago but i hadn't had the time nor the guts to try to install it... but well, just a few hours ago i tried it and after a few failed attempts, voilà, I got it running on my 1100D, I've played for the last hour with a few features, and i got my first crash (awww...) It happened while I was reviewing a video recorded just with the HDR option enabled. That would be it, I'll attach the crash log and hope it will be of any help.
At last I want to show my most sincere thanks for all of the hard work and time the developers have spent

SamuQu

Edit: btw, now I remember I had only installed the RC3, and with my urge to try it I forgot to update to the nightly builds... I hope the log will still be of some help

Hi there!
Another happy user since a few weeks, reading forum and enjoying ML.

I have a little issue:
When trying to format sd card without loosing ML, starts a beep and that msg is shown: "restart your camera (shoot_malloc err.)"
Searching in ML menu, i've found free memory is in red, and that value is 346k+369k. Maybe that the problem?
I'm using latest nightly, and nearly have only activated zebras, crop, etc.

Good job nanomad, congrats!

Hi, I'm new in this forum.
Thanks for the creation of ML! :)
I'm here to ask and propose an useful thing in my opinion.
Can you enable the "red eyes light" for use as AF light?
As all of you know, Canon use prelamp of the flash for AF with few light and indeed Nikon has a light that help the AF without use the flash.
What do you think?
I hope to have explained good..  :-\

Hi, first of all thanks for ML and thanks for finally porting it to the 1100D (I just found out;-)

I know ML for the 1100D is still in dev, but just for the record I wanted to report, that some image effects in movie mode don't seem to work (nothing happens), these were:

cartoon (weak)
oil painting
sharpness

can someone confirm this?

My cam also freezed the first time I tried cartoon (weak) but I can't reproduce this...

They should probably be disabled for menu. None of these effects works on 5D3 (either some things changed, or I'm changing them from the wrong spot - just before Canon code overwrites them).
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: ubbut on November 15, 2012, 01:07:49 AM
Hi,

in FPS override the frame rate won't go above 25.054 (30.041) since the timer minimum values are restricted to the original values in fps-engio.c for 1100D:

Code: [Select]
#undef FPS_TIMER_A_MIN
#define FPS_TIMER_A_MIN fps_timer_a_orig

I guess there is a reason for that so I am not going to change anything here, but
I thought I might disable the frame rates higher than 25 (30) in the menu as a first contribution to ML if that's desirable...
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on November 15, 2012, 08:28:29 AM
Yeah, I totally forgot about that. The reason is that the camera uses weird timing values (or at least I couldn't compute them properly....)

Feel free to post a pull request for it on bitbucket so that we can credit you

Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: ubbut on November 16, 2012, 10:47:10 PM
Hi, good news I think...   :-)

I played with timer values A and B, first thing I did was changing the minimum values to the minimum original values used for 30p, so you could select framerates up to 30fps no matter if you select 25p or 30p (in 25p mode fps was restricted to 25)

minimum values are:

25p : A= 1000 B=1280
30p:  A= 960   B=1112

I than tried to find the minimum working value for timer A, which seems to be 872, lower values first result in vertical purple stripes and even lower ones in a completely black screen.
This changed the maximum possible fps to 33 :-)

Minimum value for timer B seems to be 1040, below that you get a nasty ERR70 ;-)

This further improved the maximum fps to 35 :-)


I noticed that the algorithm tends to choose a lower timerA value then the original minimum even for framerates below 30. Is this a problem, or does it help to reduce yellow?


I would upload the code to the repository but I have to admit that I don't know how to do so...(I tried the pull request button, but it says "access denied")

I noticed that the algorithm tends to choose a lower timerA value then the original minimum even for framerates below 30.

The algorithm depends on the optimization setting:

- low light (for low frame rates): try to increase only timer B
- exact FPS: try to get as close as possible to the exact value; if there are more solutions, the one with smallest timer A is chosen (that results in lowest jello effect)
- high FPS: try to decrease timer B first (no side effect on shutter speed)
- high jello: try to increase timer A first

At extremes, in all cases the algorithm should hit the hard limits for both timers (at least in theory).

On new cameras (including 1100D), timer B can be changed either with or without the side effect of altering the shutter speed (you can choose whether you want the side effect, or not). So, low light mode includes the side effect, to get slower shutter speeds, but the other modes will cancel the side effect.

Technical: timer B can be altered via engio (with side effect) or via table patching (without side effect, but requires a video mode change to take effect).
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: ubbut on November 17, 2012, 04:58:34 PM
Something else:

I created a new small font, which should look much better on the low-res screen of the 1100D. It is basically what a1ex suggested some time ago, a small font of 6x3 scaled to 12x6. After downscaling in the camera by nearest neighbor this could look just fine.

To create the font I changed the font-small.in and ran mkfont to get the corresponding font-small.c. Worked, but can't see any changes on the cam.
Do I have to create a new FONTS.DAT?

thanks
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on November 17, 2012, 05:44:43 PM
Yes, and it's not quite easy. I'd suggest another approach:

1) add this to 1100D Makefile:

CFLAGS += -DCONFIG_STATIC_FONTS=1

2) replace font-dyn.o with the 3 static font files in Makefile.

Advantage: this will load the fonts in the malloc memory pool, which will free some RAM from the AllocateMemory one (where the 1100D has some trouble). The 1100D has 512K reserved for autoexec.bin, and binary size after doing this will be around 450K.

Disadvantage: shadowed fonts will not work, but it shouldn't be very hard to fix. For this, you will need to port some init steps from font-dyn.c (maybe split it into another file called font-shadow.c and use it in all cameras).
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3

Hi, just updated the pull request:

Quote
lowered minimum timer A,B values to achive higher maximum framerates of up to 35fps and restricted menu selection to 35fps. In zoom fps is restricted to 32.

Quote
Created new small fonts for 1100D and changed to static fonts. To make the shadow fonts work I introduced a new struct 'sfont' which is always dynamically generated (not depending on CONFIG_STATIC_FONT)

Maybe there is a way around this, but I could not come up with one.
depending on CONFIG_STATIC_FONTS font is:

Code: [Select]
struct font
{
        unsigned        height;
        unsigned        width;
#ifdef CONFIG_STATIC_FONTS
        unsigned        bitmap[];
#else
        unsigned*       bitmap;
#endif
};

however it needs to be
Code: [Select]
unsigned*       bitmap;for the shadow fonts.
So I introduced a new struct sfont:

Code: [Select]
struct sfont
{
        unsigned        height;
        unsigned        width;
        unsigned*       bitmap;
};

How could this be avoided?

Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: ubbut on November 18, 2012, 04:58:10 PM
Yes I would like to create a new medium font, too. I am currently looking for a font which looks similar to the used helvecia but which renders nicely at a hight of 7px. (because that would mean the same hight than the current med font after upscaling)

Should also be GPL licensed, I believe. 

So far I couldn't find anything, but I will be more than happy to create the font-med.in file, If anyone points me to a suitable font :-)


Oh btw. I noticed, that there is no '?' character in font-med.in, font-large.in or font-small.in even though it seems to be created by generate-font...
maybe one has to run generate font once more ?

Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on November 18, 2012, 05:37:55 PM
Well, the "start at odd pixels" is not actually a hack, it's a work-around for the LCD screen scaler, which uses line skipping.

Btw, as a suggestion, we should avoid 1 px high horizontal lines (e.g. the on in B) since they get cut away
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: ubbut on November 18, 2012, 05:43:21 PM
Yes, the idea is to create a font where every "pixel" is a 2x2 pixel square.
That's what I did for the new small font (it's almost not used, but you can see it on the audio meter).

I'm currently working on a similar medium font...

I think it should be simple to create a resources file for each language supported.
This file could be loaded on the card or in build time a .c file could be generated for each camera.

I think this issue should be a different post. This is a task common to all cameras.

I am working on an anti aliasing function for the 1100D. First proof of concept results look nice, but it is still quite slow.

Basic idea is too perform some filtering on the image buffer to avoid aliasing after the line skipping takes place.

I am using a 1x3 filter kernel, which allows it to perform the filtering in place since only every second line is written.

Of course due to the fact, that we are limited to the first 80 entries of cannons palette this only works for gray scale, but I am translating color values to gray values that have the same brightness and use this to calculate intermediate values. And instead of overwriting a color pixel, nothing is done.

So let's assume the output of anti aliasing in full color space is a green pixel with a dark green pixel next to it. Here a green pixel with a dark gray pixel next to it is drawn instead. It's not quite as nice, but looks much better than without AA.

You can choose the area to be anti-aliased and you can also do stuff like: draw an icon, anti alias it and draw some not anti aliased text above it.

No AA:https://bitbucket.org/ubbut/magic-lantern/

With AA:

Please excuse the bad image quality


I believe this could be especially useful for dynamic generated graphics, such as histogram or vectorscope. (if the speed is improved)

if anyone is interested, code can be found here:
https://bitbucket.org/ubbut/magic-lantern/

Note: it is just for testing and still beta. I set up a test pattern in the audio menu - turn on meters to turn on anti aliasing. The AA is performed on the whole screen, it is of course faster if only applied to a small area.

Looking at the screenshot i don't like the lines with AA, but fonts instead are better, Locking at the LCD i see not a lot of difference maybe less contrast (not nice); is there a way to toggle the effect?

Hi, first of all thanks for the screenshots, they will help me to improve the algorithm (for some reason my cam freezes when trying to make a screenshot)

The anti aliasing is designed to work in this particular case where the vertical resolution of the image buffer is twice the one of the screen and line skipping is used to resize the image.
If it looks blurred on the screenshot, that's actually a good sign^^, because that is what was intended: reduce the vertical high frequency component to avoid aliasing after resampling (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nyquist%E2%80%93Shannon_sampling_theorem)

For my test I switched back to the 'old' fonts, because they make a good test pattern, with the new fonts there will be no improvement.
On the screen you should see at least more horizontal lines in the test pattern when AA is enabled (see my photos).

@ubbut

I liked your work with fonts. I'd like to test your fonts on my 40D. I suggest to you add an entry in the debug menu that shows all characters in TFT. This option should only be apareser mode is set DEBUG in the makefile.

http://magiclantern.wikia.com/wiki/File:WithoutAA.BMP (http://magiclantern.wikia.com/wiki/File:WithoutAA.BMP)

Thinking about how to compare, should be possible to draw two grid one with and one without AA on the same screen? Either i'll try to make a cropmark from the screenshot

EDIT: first commit was a bit laggy with all menu item shown, now I don't feel any lag when moving thru menus. By the way with your suggestions I've figured out how to apply a commit to my local copy from forks on bitbucket :)

good idea, will look into it when i have time...

 the resolution of the 40D is 320x240, correct? what is the resolution of the buffer? Buffer resolution should be double of that, otherwise the fonts won't improve much...  edit: well ok if it is some sort of cropping + line and/or row skipping it will work, too...

Thinking about how to compare, should be possible to draw two grid one with and one without AA on the same screen? Either i'll try to make a cropmark from the screenshot

Next thing I will do is to set up a proper test pattern which covers all the eventualities, test AA on icons and waveform, vectorscope and histogram.
Until then you can switch AA on and off using the 'Audio Meters' on/off selector. (just in case you havn't seen it...)

On 40D and 5Dc, the bitmap resolution is 720x240, and current medium fonts look pretty nice with a small trick: first we draw background pixels, then we draw the foreground ones. Fonts will get a bit bold, but no lines are skipped, so they look pretty good IMO.

Screenshot with this font trick: http://i.imgur.com/0T3EJ.jpg

Since the 1100D is MY camera (as opposed to the 650D lent me by the team) I'll keep providing updates and fixes (although most of them come from the main ML tree since the 1100D is now officially supported)

I'm also looking for co-developers on this camera, so feel free to step in ;)

Well, if you're interested in developing new features, I'd say at least knowledge of ARM assembly, C and some free time to invest in the project.

If you simply want to iron out bugs and such, C is usually enough

Hello,  this probably has been asked before(to death).  But, is it possible to unlock other video modes in the 1100d from my cursory hardware knowledge it seems very possible.  Can you tell me how its not? or has there been any thoughts work in this direction?  If its standard I apologize.  I don't yet have the camera fedex has it. Thank you for porting this by the way......

It may be possible in the future, but it requires a bigger reverse engineering effort (I'll go back to it after I make the 650D port stable)

I managed to enable the manual exposure setting configuration of Override Exp in Auto (ON). It worked for me, I can change all exposure settings, such as white balance, iso, aperture and shutter. I don't know what that means Auto, since it works just like the option ON.

Hello everybody.

Today (17-December-2012) i update my "Nightly Build". But after that i have lost the HDR Video options. I remember that before this update i had (November 1st) Nightly build in my Canon 1100D. But now i have got few problems.

1.  My audio Green or Red bars are not sliding frontside or backside now as they slide before, when i spoke anything. why?

2.  In the photoshoot Menu, there were HDR Bracketting had 3 different formates, which i could change between these three settings. Those were something like these (++,--) (--,++) (--0++).  Now i cannot access these. why?

3.  I had shoot HDR Video before. But now i have not found any HDR Video settings in any menu. why?

4.  And now there is a new option i think appeared. which say in its help under the menu (Change H.264 bit rate, be careful, recording may stop)
 But there are "Bit Rate (CBR) : 1.0x (FW Default)" menu. and i only can change its bit rate "0.1x to 3.0x". please tell me where is H.264 in it?

I am very very thankful to you all.
please answer me it helps me alot timesaving if you give answer to my questions.

good luck

I'll check the others later today but
1. Do they work while recording? If so,  that's because sometimes Canon fw disables the audio ic to save power when not needed
2. Check the Adv. Bracketing sub-menu (Sequence)
3. It's in the Movie menu, make sure you have not hidden it (check the ML user manual)
4. That option is working as intended,  it allows you to change the bit rate factor used by Canon 's H264 encoder

Dear Friend

I double check the issues coming after updating the (17 December 2012 Nightly build update).

1.   Audio Green & Red Bars are not sliding come & forth neither in duration of recording. why?

2.   Yes i found out the HDR Video option in Video Menu. Acually there is a scroll bar in that menu, that's why it is look like hidden.
      But when i press the HDR Vido option they said that "it won't work with auto ISO" so i press Q button to access its options. there were 2   
      option (A & B). in A menu i set 100 ISO and in the B menu i set the 400 ISO. then i record the movie but that was not the HDR Video. So
      please tell me where i can set the iso? and how can i record the HDR Video?

3.   And please tell me about bit rate? which bit rate for video has the best quality? i can set bit rate from 0.1x to 3.0x. please tell me which is the best for quality video?

I am very thankful to you that you always help me with your great answers.
good luck

1. Audio bars work fine here, make sure you don't have a higher nitrate or hdr video enabled
2. To use hdr video you have to enable exposure override on the 1100D (which is tb, equivalent of the missing M mode in video) . It's somewhere in the ML menus
3. The higher the nitrate the better the video quality, but you need a fast SD card and you'll have to keep audio recording off

I missed the steady hands thing. Nice catch. It doesn't work because we don't have a motion sensor like some other cameras. I'll check the other bug too.
Silent pic folder is correct, maybe it's a bug in the message
Screenshot crashes due to low memory... I'll probably disable it as it doesn't work 90% of the time (it does sometimes when the camera was just powered on)
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on December 20, 2012, 03:15:18 PM
The steady hands is using LiveView, it's just a reversed motion detection (picture is taken when there's no motion). When used from photo mode, it does some dirty tricks to enable LiveView temporarily, but with display off, so it can be used with the viewfinder too.

The low memory problems are also present on 60D, maybe a CONFIG_LOW_MEMORY will help. I'm thinking to allocate all file i/o operations via shoot_malloc on those cameras - as long as shoot_free is called and there are no memory leaks, it should be fine.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on December 21, 2012, 11:28:48 AM
I've just tested the motion detect features and they work fine. The "matrix" thing is actually the frame difference used to compute "steady hands" and the other mode

And for steady hands to work properly, I suggest you read the blinking red text (you need to keep half-shutter pressed)

The black box does bare some resemblance to the image in the sensing area. It's like it's gone though way to many arty processing effects and been made way too dark. Hard to explain.

The black box follows the white borders around but is always above like that. I have a feeling I didn't have this issue the very first time I used it, but I was still trying to get used to the controls and everything so I could have been using another feature.

Hi,
Ghost image seems to be working fine. I'm not sure what you mean by "Time lapse play"? I've turned "time lapse ramping" on and started the intervalometer. It did a lot of checking screen gain and changing luma and ISO settings which I didn't really understand. After a few minutes of doing that, it has started taking shots at about 7sec intervals. If that's what's expected, I'd say it's working?

Thanks,

Do we have a solution for the motion detection issue? Am I the only one that has the problem?

Cheers,
David.

Well, you may have an "unlucky" camera. Do you mind doing these steps?
- Re-download the latest firmware from canon
- Update the camera
- Re-test the motion detection

If it doesn't work, make a video of it (it makes debugging a little bit easier)

I update the firmware to the lates Canon one. Then updated the ML firmware onto it, still got the same problem. Here's the video of what's going on. While shooting it, I discovered a related problem where the motion detection is triggered when the sensing square is moved to the top of bottom of the screen.

hope this helps.

Hi Nanomad,
(sorry for my bad english)

I have tried "magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2013Jan03.60D.550D.600D.50D.500D.5D2.1100D" nightly build in my 1100D and
this is what happened:
You talked about this issue before in this forum, but I don't know if it was solved.
My lenses are Canon 18-55 III. Please, tell me how to remove the error.

Thanks.

Unfortunately it seems to happen with some lenses...the trigger conditions are not known but, from what i've seen, it happens if
- you have an EF-S lens
- the lens doesn't have a constant aperture
- the scene has a high dynamic range

Hi, couple of things:

First:
I tried to do a bulb-ramping timelapse today. When I set it going, it started doing the calibration stuff - It took a few pictures then tried to draw the graph thing, but soon it got stuck in a cycle of testing the display gain, changing the ISO, and the shutter speed, checking luma and stuff. It did this for ages. I've only had bulb ramping work form me once, on a previous build. However, when it did work that one time, it took ages and did something similar to this cycle of checks. So I decided to trust it and left it to do it's checks then hopefully start shooting the times lapse. However, over an hour later, it was still doing the checks and was nearly out of battery. This is the fourth time out of four tries that this has happened, though this is the only time I've left it for so long. The scene was well lit - I was shooting the sky, (ISO100, f5.6 1/200 was well exposed, though I tried other settings). The scene wasn't moving at all, it was on a tripod too. I've attached the log files from the two tries I did today. I stopped the first one after about 5mins but I let the second go for over an hour. Strangly though, both are only 1kb.

Second: Did you see my video on youtube showing the problem with the motion detection? I'm not asking for any results, just checking you saw it. I can provide more info on request, but if I'm the only one with this problem, it may not be worth it.

Third: I've notice something when viewing images. When I press the zoom button, it goes to full magnification, and when I press it again, it becomes unzoomed completely. Is there any way to turn this off? I find the standard zooming controls easier to use.

Thanks for the continued efforts. I might have a go at compiling myself, to at least see if I can understand it, though I'm not sure I understand the instructions  :P

Happy snapping! :)

Edit: I can't seem to add attachments. There is not option for it. I've copied the log files bellow:

1) Can you post a video showing the calibration process? Normally it takes a couple of seconds.

2) It works fine, except for the misalignment problem, which is straightforward to fix (Nanomad did the same thing for magic zoom). The misalignment is probably the cause for bulb ramping not working well. Also check spotmeter whether it reads from correct spot.

3) Look in Prefs menu.

4) What steps did you do to get the logs? It shouldn't happen; it means something's wrong with my math...
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: alband on January 16, 2013, 11:16:23 PM
Thanks for such a quick reply  :D

1. I'll do that but it'll take a little bit of time. How long do you want the video? Like, I said, it did whatever it was doing for over an hour. I'm sure it was doing the same things in some kind of pattern or cycle, but I wouldn't know if that pattern or cylce was a minute long, or 10.

2. Spot metering seems to be working fine even with motion detection on. I'll include a demo of that in the video.

3. Got it, shoult have check, thanks + sorry.

4. The log files were just there when I looked on the SD card. Opened them with notepad. When I was shooting: set up scene, took a few test shots, went to "shoot menu", everything off, set timelapse ramping to "Smooth ramping"/"OFF"/"OFF", turned timelapse ramping on, set intervalometer to "16s"/"0s"/"Disabled", turned intervalometer on, pressed the delete button to come out of ML and it started it's checks.

Cheers,
David.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on January 16, 2013, 11:22:40 PM
1. Just 2-3 cycles.

2. Check with a small black spot on a white wall, for example (this is how I test it on my cameras).

4. When you get that message, you should also see it on the screen. At which point does this happen? Also, are you in M mode?
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: alband on January 16, 2013, 11:30:42 PM
1. Hard to tell what a cycle is so I'll just play it by ear.

2. I used my ipod on full brightness in a dark room, moving it into view. It changes from ~4% to ~50% when the screen is under the spot. Tried it both horizontally and vertically. I'll include it in the video.

4. Don't see any "error" message on scren, just things like "checking display gain", "increasing ISO" etc. I wasn't in manual mode, though it did change to manual mode. Just trying it in manual mode and it seems to be having the same problem. Video probably needed.

Hi,
Sorry the video took so long - lack of compatible cameras/memory cards/lenses - ended up shooting using an old screw on 100mm f2.8 + 1.4x converter + extended + adapter. Bizzar setup :p

Anyway, video is here: Again, the camera generated a log file which is bellow. Hope this is useful.

Given the bulb ramping a try and it seems to be working. Pretty dull grey weather here though, so can't test whether it is "ramping" correctly. It did the calibration though and started taking the intervaled shots, so looks promising.

The motion detection still has the image mis-aligned but that wasn't meant to be fixed yet was it? Will it planned to be fixed in the future or is it not worth it given the motion detection technically works.

Thanks, can't wait to use these things in anger :)

Some workarounds:

- replace AllocateMemory with malloc wherever possible (saves 50-200K)  [DONE]

Tomorrow's nightly should behave a bit better, let me know how much free RAM you have.

Other workarounds: disable waveform, vectorscope and cropmarks.

Hi! I installed magic lantern to be able to set manual exposure in video mode using exposure overrides.
However,i noticed a problem when setting custom aperture. The camera says that the aperture has been set correctly but the difference in light and DOF is not as big as it should be. The difference between aperture 3.5-22 looks like the difference beetween 3.5 and 5 (without exposure overrides) I wonder is this a bug? If not please tell me why it happens and how i fix it. Thanks :-)

There were some more questions:
1. How correctly to update nightly build?
I should remove and establish completely all on the new? Or it is necessary to rewrite only files on top of the old?

2. Whether possibility on 1100d will sometime begin shooting by means of a sound?

3. What temperature is considered normal 30с, 50с, 70с...???

thanks.

Very much it was pleasant: it Follow Focus, is a pity that is not present autolock focus and handlock focus!)
But I have already learnt a finger to disconnect an auto focus before shooting and to include back after shutter descent))

Has still found interesting application for Follow Focus+intervalometer:
For example we need to be photographed against mountains, and nearby who is not present that it to make...
By means of an auto focus we are focused on a proper place, Follow Focus focus on the necessary position is tightened very precisely, we include intervalometer, we go on a proper place and we wait shot))

Sorry for my English.

Hi
I'm new in ML and because my 1100D is my only DSLR camera i don't know if what i experiment is a miss understanding/setup from my side or bug.

I give try to timlapse ramping. It work at the end but with a lot of flickering.
For the calibration process sometime it was ok sometime not. it took me a while to understand that i should select from live view a part of the scene with good contrast, otherwise the calibration go in loop and never stop. I did all my test with smooth ramping.
I set up the ref picture for midtone 50%. I don't understand how i can setup the midtone,highlight and shadow from different pictures (bkt for example)

I'm little bit confused with the timelapse ramping submenu.
-What happen if i select everything (auto exporamp,Manexporamp,manfocusramp)
- Does the manexporamp overwrite the autoexporamp?
- can i use the man exporamp with the manfocusramp?
-Is the manfocusramp is linked with the focusendpoint of the focus menu?
-When should i use LRT instead of smooth ramping ?

I try as well to bracket my shot while using timelapse ramping, it works but don't forget to setup the number of frame you want to bracket. if you leave it in autodetect you'll never have the same number of bkt  per shot. it start with 3 after a while (because of light change) he take 4 or 5 etc... So if you want to post process with enfuse or other TM tool you should have the same number of bkt (sorry i don't use linux and can't use the Bash script made from ML).

At the end of my test the best result i had was by using ADV.Bracketing with 5 bkt per shot in AV mode with the intervalometer. The result was much smoother and much less flickering.

I'm as well confused  with the focus menu I don't get how to fix the start and end point of the focus (do i have to go to LV and back to menu?).
Do you know where i can get a good tutorial about follow focus, rack focus and stack focus? The online ML doc is little bit light....

I Try as well the motion detection feature, it work perfectly at night for lightning.

Sorry for all that questionws, but i'm using ML like crasy for the next 3 daysand i love it.
Thanks to all the team for this fantastic job.

I finally manage to get focus stack working. There is a strange behavior with it.  i focus on the start point and then use the focus end point menu to setup my ending point with the wheel, When i run the focus stack it reversing the stack starting with my starting focus point. Let say that i'm focusing first in front of the subject and set up the end point 10 step behind, then when i run the stack the camera start with the first focus point but instead of going forward to the next focus point it goes backward. To bypass that problem i have to refocus my subject to the ending focus point of the stack and the the camera finish to the starting focus point. It's not easy to guess in live view if my new focus point match with the ending point of the ML Stack...
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: alband on February 01, 2013, 11:39:23 PM
Think I've found a couple of bugs.

1. When shooting with auto-HDR. If you previously viewed images in grid view (zoomed out twice), the auto HDR routine seems to try to meter the whole 9 images, which leads it to take far too many (possibly indefinitely). To recreate: cold start, take a few pictures if the card is empty, press play to view them, zoom out twice (if not already) so you view 9 at once, then set up an auto HDR image, it will take pictures pretty much indefinitely. I need to turn off to get out of it. If you press play and zoom in twice, so as to view images one by one, then try and auto HDR image, it works.

2. I'm not sure about this one, but it seems to be repeatable. If you use bulb ramping with image quality set to JPG LARGE (smooth), it doesn't seem to change the exposure. It just takes photo after photo, even if they are completely blown out, or black. However, if I switch to shooting in just RAW, it works fine. If this isn't a bug, but is just how it's meant to be, it's very limiting, because it reduces the number of possible images in a single time laps by a factor of four. On an 8GB card, that means only about 30 seconds at 30fps.

Still loving ML and hope these things can be easily ironed out.

Thanks to the ML team :)

Post by: a1ex on February 01, 2013, 11:41:33 PM
1. you need to display only one image

2. does it also happen with auto HDR?
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: alband on February 02, 2013, 02:09:34 AM
1. Could it be set to work out if one image is being displayed and then change it or warn if necessary? It could test whether there is a black grid is present in the displayed image, or it could simply zoom out many times then zoom in twice, which would guarantee it's displaying only one image. It would only need to do that during the first test. Subsequent tests would be the same. It's probably not the most urgent or important thing, but it would be nice for a final "perfect" version.

2. No, auto HDR seems to be unaffected. I just tried and it worked with JPG large.

Hi, first of all thanks to Nanomad & A1ex & all the team behind Magic Lantern for this wonderful software.
The second, I got the same problem that  fufuheo mentions above. When I change the aperture with exp.override on it doesn't change at all, Av values in the right always stayed between 2.9 and 8. It only happens when I'm using the exp.override in video mode, in the other modes the change of the aperture is fine.
Also in the video mode, when I set the f to a low value f36 for example and I focus to highlight the picture starts to flick, and become dark in some moments and then return to bright again, it seems that the camera tries to set the f correctly.

My 1100D is an spanish one with firmware 1.0.5, I 'm using the Nightly build of Dec 02.
The only lenses that I got is the  Canon EFS 18-55mm f3.5-f5.6.

Hi!
Thanks for your fast answer Nanomad
I updated to the last night build. And I still have the same problem.
This time (in Video Mode) I set the lens to 18mm with f3.5 in the begin, then I changed the f to 22 and move the camera into the sunlight, this time the flickering was bigger than previously and the motor of the camera started to make noise, opening and closing the diagram.
Later I move the lens to 55mm of focal lenght and set the f to 36, the flickering stopped and the noise too, but the picture was too bright and there were a shallow DOF.
After a few moments, and with camera in the same conditions (55m and f36, sunlight) I tried to autofocus, and I noticed that camera really close the diagram of the lens during the focus, but when it finished the camera outputs again a bright picture.

Thanks and I hope that has been helpful

awesome job guys...!! just installed ML on my 1100D and it works fine...!! (so far)
would like to know the chances of changing the video resolution to :
a) downsize small 640x480 (or similar sized) videos
b) upsized 1080p

thanks again for the great work you guys are doing, & i wish i could contribute somehow but am handicapped with no knowledge of programming etc...!! :(

I just installed ML on my 1100d

Sadly I came for the audio settings and shocked that I couldn't find the analog gain where i can reduce the hiss sound of the cam

Is their something wrong with mine or is it still in the process?  :'(

I fiddled with audio stuff for a bit and come to the conclusion that Canon already did their best with this crappy chip. Turn down analog gain and you can't hear anything. I may put some research into it after I'm done with the 650D

Hi again nanomad,
I hope you can solve the flickering (the same as Arcanemon). Now it happens a lot more, and it's really annoying, I can't record anything with exposure override. I reinstalled ML, but it keeps happening. Please help, and thank you very much for your job and for your time.

Can you (or anyone else) record a video showing bug #2? I need to see the exact timing of events.

Been busy. Just tried to re-produce this and film it, and typically, it worked fine. (This is intervalometer with bulb ramping in JPEG). For now, I suppose we'll just assume I did something wrong before, and that it works fine. I don't think I did do anything wrong, but who knows. I'll keeo a look out for it, hopefully I'll have more opportunities to use it in the coming weeks.

Good stuff as always,
David.

great job here, just waiting for this porting since first known about ML after bought my 1100D...

been used for view week since magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2013Jan07 nightly build, really it boost this tiny entry level camera!

For some reason, I try to turn on Cropmarks (it turns green when it's off and vice versa), and Spotmeter in live view with no luck, I think, thats the feature I'll use alot since I shoot mostly with old manual lens.

Hope this won't take any hard effort to make it happen, since spot metering and WhiteBalance with Kelvin is the most prominent lack of feature of 1100D beside above models, and I allready got my adjustable Kelvin WB,,,, ;)

Wanna to join testing... Got some doubts about installing:
1. install properly the stable release of ML 2.3 on 1100d
2. after this delete this files on my SD card and replace with up-to-date nightly builts
3. run ML
Is that right? Am sorry for my low IT intelligence  :P

For now I notice that zoom booton in regular play mode (to see and check photograph, its sharpness etc) is skiping the mezzo steps - after one touch immidiately to max. magnification.

Heehee, I fell into the same trap!  8)
Just have a look in the ML menu, there is an item to change zoom behavior to the old style.

I'm using some January snapshot now for some time without problems on my 1100D, but I still had not enough time to play with the features, too bad. So most of the time I'm assuming that it's just my fault/stupidity...

One issue: I sometimes come here just to check if there's something new. The first posting in this thread changes veeery rarely, and the changelog.txt is hard to read. Am I right that although the 1100D port will stay in state "release candidate" as long as the 650D port is in work, just because the 650D has prio over it? If so, I can stop checking the homepage and the first posting to not miss the release anouncement, right?

(Or is the main reason for not announcing the 1100D port really what the first posting is saying: "The main issues that are holding ML are: Lack of phisical buttons"? In this case, I'll carefully watch my 1100D if someday new buttons magically appear.  ;)  )

Hi again!
This weekend I'd been in an encounter and I made a lot of pics and videos, so it was a good chance to test the flickering and the aperture issue again.
This time I have borrowed an 18.135mm IS Canon Lenses and I got the same problems with the video,  I mean when I tried to close the aperture in the LiveView it never did it and if the camera tries then start to flicker, but when I used autofocus in LV the camera effectively close the aperture. Also I noticed that this happens also if I used Exp. Override in Manual Mode, but only if the LV is on.

I will try again a copy of the RC3 that I got of ML, cause as I remembered when I used before I didn't have this problems with the LiveView mode.

I'll report back

Hi! Finally I tried the RC1 version of ML on my Canon 1100D.
But the flickering/aperture issue stills there. There is no change of what I experimented before.

Finally I have to post a experiment that I did. With exp.override of, I move the  Canon's exposure compensation system to a point where the aperture was at the lowest f point (f22 in 18mm  I mean), then I blocked it with the * button.
After that I set exp.override on, and the exposition values to the same that  I blocked before, it still doesn't work. The camera sets again the aperture to it's highest number (f3.5 in 18mm).

Are all of you sure that when you close the aperture of the lenses with the LiveViewon,  it works correctly?.
Can you upload a video of it?.


Thanks

Hi Nanomad. I've been filming this weekend and i found a problem. In exp.override, I can't control the aperture. I change it but it does not effect, the exposure doesn't changes.
Also, when I want to format the SD card, the camera says "shoot_malloc_error. Please reboot" but I can format it.
Is this an important error? Please help.

All in magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2013Feb16.60D.550D.600D.50D.500D.5D2.1100D nightly build.

I got this strictly for manual exposure in video and it works fine.
I don't know what you're doing wrong to get that exposure flickering, I only get that with HDR mode on. Try disabling everything except manual exposure and see if it still flickers.

Also, did you update firmware to latest?
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: Arcanemon on March 06, 2013, 11:25:57 AM
Hi Criollo!
As I commented in another post, I got the latest firmware version of Canon (1.0.5).
Also I disconnected everything except exp.override, but the problem stills there.
It seems that the problem is refered with the LiveView, cause when I used exp.override in Manual Mode or in other photo modes( except video) with the LiveView on, and I set the aperture of the lenses in a low value (f22 for example) it doesn't do anything, the picture is too bright ( yes I checked the shutter speed and ISO too), but when I took a photo, the photo is taken correctly.
However in video this doesn't happen, I got what I see from LiveView, so no matter how I tried to change the aperture that it doesn't do anything.

The flickering issue that we are mentioning, is that sometimes the camera realises that the aperture that you set (f22 again) is not the one which is showing in the LiveView so it change is to the correct value, but then turn back again to high f number (f3.5 for example), of course while doing this, you can hear a loud noise of the lenses "crying" what is no good.
This flickering doesn't happen everytime that you set a low f value, it only happens ocassionally especially when you move the camera to a highlight.

I hope that I got explained

Greetings a1ex, nanomad and all Magic Lantern forum members. First off thanks to those whom make this brilliant firmware possible. To the administrators, If I may, I've got a quick question regarding the FPS override feature. Lets say I'd like to record a video clip at 24 fps with a shutter speed of 1/48 and a shutter angle of 180 degrees to help with the artificial interior light flickering, and to get that "cinematic effect"at an indoor event. Because internal audio will be disabled during the recording process when using the FPS override feature, I would have to use my external Zoom H1 microphone to capture audio. I would also have to use a clap board etc., to sync the video and audio in my NLE. My question is has there been any talk about enabling audio at the start of recording a small time frame of maybe 5 seconds or even less, then automatically disabling audio. That way the clap board sound can be used to sync the audio and video that will be captured internally into the Canon. I would then sync my internal captured Canon clap board sound audio and video with the clap board sound of my external Zoom H1 mic in my video editor. However, I would still have to use my external mic to capture audio for the duration of the video, but as you can see it will be a tremendous help to our editing workflow. If this has already been discussed in the forum I do apologize. Thanks.  8)

Post by: Crollo on March 08, 2013, 12:11:09 AM
The only way I can recreate the flickering issue is set the FPS mode to low light instead of exact fps, or enable HDR video; I'm using a manual lens and not a automatic diaphragm lens so the camera cannot control the aperture.

I'm about to update to the latest build. Got some crash logs and some other logs (7 in total). They're from the 20th Jan build?
Do you guys want them or are they too old to be of any use? The crashes happened straight after boot. I took out the battery and started up again and all was well. Never a perminant problem.

Thanks for ML!

Just the crash logs (4) or the other "logs" as well (presumably for HDRs?). If the other .log files are for HDRs, I've had no trouble with HDR.

How do I attach them? When I click "Attachments and other options" I just get 3 checkboxes. If it's just the crash logs, I can probably just copy and post them.

Canon code ran out of memory when indexing the photos on the card.

How much free memory do you have now?
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: alband on March 17, 2013, 04:20:08 PM
I just upgraded my firmware now.

However, during the period I had those crashes, I had lots of memory most of the time (usually >3GB). However, I did shoot some time lapses every now and then which may have filled it up until I unloaded and deleted all the images. I can wait to see if it does it again, and then record how much memory is free on the SD card, then let you know?

Is it an issue with the Canon side of things than the ML side? Like I said, none of the crashes bothered or affected me. Just off/battryout/batteryin/on worked each time.

Btw, I've got some issues with the motion detect in the latest build. It's same as some I mentioned before. If the sensing area is "large" it always takes pictures. And if the sensing area (at other sizes) is moved to the top or bottom, it always take pictures. I'll get a video together when I have time and post it, but those are the same symptoms I had that I posted in a previous video.

Hey Folks,

Today I have tried out the latest ML Nightly-Built on my 1100d. It's a truly amazing piece of work... simply awesome! However, after playing around a bit I came to the point when the aperture and/or Iso began to flicker in a high dynamic range lightning environment. I tried out different things and found out, that the flickering stops temporarily, when you lock the lightning settings in the basic canon menu by pressing the *-button. (As long as the settings are locked).

Greets and Thumbs up, Eric

On the 1100D when the 4Gb file limit was reached a popup appeared to say video has stopped ... but no autorestart.

Is it a known bug ?

Aspect ratio has messed up when I uploaded to youtube which is odd. Still shows the issue though. It seems there are zones at the top and bottom, if the detection area is moved into them, it triggers (the trigger number shoots up too). When the detection area is big, it's always in those zones. That's my diagnosis anyway. The big detection area will be really useful for me if/when it works.

I am a newbie in photography and recently bought canon 1100D as my first DSLR..I am planning to install magic lantern in my camera and I have some doubts regarding  magic lantern port to 1100d,which i hope some of you can enlighten me on..
1.Once installed,does the exposure override mode in magic lantern allow user to manually decide aperture,shutter speed and iso when shooting video,with 18-55mm kit lens.?
2.How can i make my sd card bootable?

Hi guys.. I want to ask about Trap Focus.  When I watched the demo on vimeo... trap focus (continuous mode) works perfectly that every time a car passes by it takes a shot... In my case, I turned it on in cont. mode, it took picture when the subject gets in focus, however  it didn't take any more pictures after that... The camera just beeps (focus confirmation beep) when the subject gets in focus...  Do I need to change other settings?
I'm using Canon 1100D. I know ML on this model is not yet fully functional.. i just want to ask if this is why my trap focus doesn't work properly...

I installed latest nightly build in my 1100D..I'm really impressed with the features..My heartiest thanks to the team behind this amazing product..Most of the functions i tried worked flawlessly,except exposure override.
When i set the magic lantern to exposure override mode ON,everything appeared to be normal in live view mode-there were no flickering or frequent "dimming and brightening" experienced by some previous posters in this thread.Shutter speed and iso could be set as desired.But the trouble was with aperture-It didn't change as i expected..It didn't stay in the widest aperture as mentioned by some previous posters.I set the aperture to the widest 3.5 limit and increased gradually with live view focused on a lamp..There was incremental dimming of the lamp with each increase in aperture from 3.5 upto 28 but to a much much lesser level than originally expected level of dimming,ie increase from 3.5 to 28 seems like 3.5 to 5.6..It seems like the decrease in aperture with increase in f value  is like about 1/10th of the original expected value..Could this be rectified in coding?

Hi!,
For me it happens in all the modes when the LiveView is ON; So I think that the aperture issue is only in LV.
If you try to focus when you are recording video, then the aperture changes correctly, but then it came back.
I recently made a video of it, I'll upload it this afternoon so you can see.
However, THE FLICKERING ISSUE APPEARS VERY SOMETIMes, BUT THE APERTURE ISSUE IS ALWAYS THERE.

I'll wait back for your answer.

I was using the video mode but as I said before it happens in every mode when the LiveView is on.

Other things:
- Build used: Nightly build from 26 March 2013.
- Lens used: Canon EF-S 18-55mm III non IS.

I added some annotations into the video that I hope clarifies this problem.

Thanks again to all the ML team for this wonderful software.

Hello.
I'm new here and first I would like to thank all the guys that are making ML possible on 1100D.
I'm not using much of ML features, but the one's that I'm trying to use - don't work.

1. Taking screenshot: when I want to take a screenshot of either ML or any Canon menu, the timer end and nothing happens except the camera freezes and I need to remove the battery.

2. When using FPS override (to make timelapse), droping it down to 0.2 FPS makes camera freeze (I can start recording, but when I end it, it freezes) EDIT: Looks like I set it to 2 fps but when I open a video on PC it's normally 30 FPS :/

3. ML sometimes resets itself after I start the camera up and I need to set it up all over again (SOLVED with exporting to script, EDIT: Can't run script, out of memory)

4. Will try more features when the weather changes, it's all grey and snowy now :S

Setup using: ML v2.3.NEXT.201 3Mar31.1100D105
Free mem: 303k+442k
Lens: 18-55 EF-S IS

3. Please define that, I can't really understand the question...How to reproduce what? The script? I just ran it...

EDIT: Deleted old ML, pasted the new one and turned on the camera...and ML crashed, I got this to send it to the devs

Reverted to 31.March.

Post by: Rush on April 04, 2013, 01:46:24 AM
Flickering is caused by broken aperture control - it always wide open, but if you set it to higher number - you will not change aperture, but you will experience flickering with changing aperture - from wide open to f-number, you set in ML, back and forth.
So, I recommend to always change your aperture value to your lowest f-number, to avoid flickering. (it's hard with zooms with variable max f-number - it will stick to highest f-number after your come back from tele- to wide- - you need to correct aperture accordingly if you don't want flicker).
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: Arcanemon on April 04, 2013, 02:53:37 PM
Thank you Rush for your answer.
But there is any code-fix for that broken-aperture control?.
Is it possible to correct it?.
This aperture issue only happens in a few Canon 1100D? Or everyone else has the same problems?

Post by: a1ex on April 04, 2013, 03:12:20 PM
I've double-checked the aperture constants and they seem alright. It only happens on 1100D.

Feel free to grab the source code and investigate it.

Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: Arcanemon on April 04, 2013, 08:24:59 PM
I'd checked the file consts.h in the 1100D source code, and in the video section I've seen this:
Code: [Select]
#define VIDEO_PARAMETERS_SRC_3 0x70C0C
#define FRAME_ISO (*(uint16_t*)(VIDEO_PARAMETERS_SRC_3+0x8))
#define FRAME_SHUTTER (*(uint8_t*)(VIDEO_PARAMETERS_SRC_3+0xa))
#define FRAME_BV (*(uint8_t*)(VIDEO_PARAMETERS_SRC_3+0xb))
#define FRAME_SHUTTER_TIMER (*(uint16_t*)(VIDEO_PARAMETERS_SRC_3+0xC)) // not sure

So, as I notice, there is not constant there for the APERTURE. After that I checked the same file but for the 600D. And I found this at the same section:
Code: [Select]
#define VIDEO_PARAMETERS_SRC_3 0x70AE8 // notation from g3gg0
#define FRAME_SHUTTER_TIMER (*(uint16_t*)(VIDEO_PARAMETERS_SRC_3+0xC))
#define FRAME_ISO (*(uint8_t*)(VIDEO_PARAMETERS_SRC_3+0x8))
#define FRAME_APERTURE (*(uint8_t*)(VIDEO_PARAMETERS_SRC_3+0x9))
#define FRAME_SHUTTER (*(uint8_t*)(VIDEO_PARAMETERS_SRC_3+0xa))
#define FRAME_BV ((int)FRAME_SHUTTER + (int)FRAME_APERTURE - (int)FRAME_ISO)

So you can see in the 600D:
#define FRAME_APERTURE (*(uint8_t*)(VIDEO_PARAMETERS_SRC_3+0x9))
 there is a constant for the aperture, could be that the problem?.
Also FRAME_BV is defined different:
#define FRAME_BV ((int)FRAME_SHUTTER + (int)FRAME_APERTURE - (int)FRAME_ISO).


I hope that it has been helpful.

From these, you can override ISO (as in HDR video) and shutter (via FRAME_SHUTTER_TIMER). Aperture... I couldn't change it from there on my cameras, but it's worth trying on 1100D.

Aperture is changed via exposure override (CONTROL_BV constants). With expo override enabled, ISO and shutter are working?

Other things worth trying:
call("aewb_enableae", 0)
LVAE_MOV_M_CTRL=1

or... just unscrew the lens a bit :P

Hi good people, long time lurker here. Great job on the firmware!
On behalf of your 6th of April 2013 nightly, I am hereby dumping some crashlogs:

https://mega.co.nz/#!KcchmKIY!Enbsuk0kANdg1Br8MzFTvzN_bEMvvjmyY3QADi9wxJM

This is probably not any news, but the crashes don't actually crash the camera (i.e. nothing freezes), but are mild nuisances, or they probably affect the background jobs. Again, another possibly known fact is that I've always been informed by the firmware that there is not enough memory (for malloc, not space on card), on every nightly since December (which is when I started testing ML).

Same as:
Tried the new nightly, ran some test and this is what I got...

CRASH DUMP >> https://www.box.com/s/vg8945cdrjgyru2e8m8t

Also, screenshot still doesn't work.

Also, this seems to have been reported earlier by a gentleman, movie restart doesn't work. I've tried modifying the 'Powersave in LiveView' settings, under ML and the 'Auto power off', under the normal Canon menu (should they affect the restart in any way), but still no success: the movie ends at ~ 4GB (as it should due to the FAT32 limitations) and if left alone, the mirror flips back and the camera enters stand-by.

Again, though, marvelous job on the firmware, it's been a lot of fun so far, hopefully I'll be able to help out in about 2 years when I'll know enough C.

Peace out!

EDIT: I forgot to mention that the crashlogs are generated ONLY in LiveView in these cases: 1) when I turn on LiveView and 2) when I press the autofocus button (at first it was only the half-shutter, but then I decided to modify its function into AE lock and to autofocus with the former AE lock button).

Hi everyone, I'm testing the lastest nighty build on 1100d , 07 april 2013,  the fonts are better than the "non nightly" version, and the user interface is more clear, and pratical, but I have a problem and a question:

The problem is:
It always crashes on liveview. The functions that works are the intervalometer and the bracketing, but everytime I launch liveview it crashes.
Screenshots doesn't work and get the camera mad, need to restart.

The question is:
Will it be an Audio Shoot trigger like is written in the manual?
I will find it very useful

I'm a student of New Tecnologies for Arts and I very appreciate your project! Keep on! my 1100d needs to "unleash the beast" :)
All the Best

Hi, I'm here to report that the 2013Apr09 nightly does not work when updating.
Here's what happens:

I go to enable the bootflag from the menu, it manages to show the success screen with the green text and when I try to start the camera again, the red LED lights up and stays lit indefinitely, the screen remains black and no button seems to work. Turning off the camera changes nothing, as the LED is still lit, so the only option is to take out the battery and format the card externally.

For some reason, when I first tried the nightly, the camera refused to start even without a card (which is when I panicked), but for some reason the 2nd time worked just well.
I've used both the original Canon battery and a replacement, both fully charged.

No files have been created on the card after the incidents.

OK, since my most recent post did not receive a response- on to the next one. This manual aperture control issue in video mode that has been a big topic for T3 owners, is really strange because for me since I own the 50mm prime lens, the exposure override ON option works perfect for me when I want to manually control the aperture when recording with the 50mm in use. The only time exposure override does not manually control the aperture is when I use the 18-55mm II or my other kit lens that is listed below. It seems to be just the kit lenses that seems to not work properly, at least for me.

Hi there

Have to report same bug.

Don't know why, a few weeks since last update in my camera, today i've downloaded latest nightly, and my 1100D do not start in any way.

When i close the batt door, red light goes on (with no blinking) and I cant do anything else. Tried with set button, in P mode....no way. I tried also formatting sd card in my pc, then, formatting on camera (starts well without ML), and then reinstalling ML: same problem; red light on, camera dead.

I had to ger off ML and use original firm with card formatted...

Any solution?

The latest nightly build that works for me without any obvious incident (other than exposure override option not working with my kit lenses) is the March 31st nightly build. Other than that all of the April nightly builds give me the same experience you have had  8)

Post by: 47Crows on April 21, 2013, 09:01:32 AM
I can confirm that the 21st of April works just fine.
Minor bug, though and I am not sure from when it is, I just noticed while testing today's nightly:
I activated Follow Focus and messed around with the settings and the focus, until it sort of broke. It said "Focus error :(", and from that point the autofocus, the autoexposure and the shutter was dead (I couldn't take a picture at all). I turned off the camera (it should be noted that I was in LiveView, so that I could mess with Follow Focus) but the mirror did not come down. I turned it on again, it started in the non LV Canon interface (even though the mirror was still up), I pressed the LV button, it went right into LV as if nothing happened, then I tried to turn LV off to get the mirror back down and it didn't work, so I turned off the camera again, still no mirror action. Now, when I turned the camera back on, the same happened, the Canon interface showed up BUT, when I tried to turn off the camera, the interface was still there (as if it had crashed), so I just took out the battery, put it back on and when I closed the battery lid, the mirror came down. (note: during the testing of autofocus and autoexposure and taking a picture I tried deactivating autofocus from the lens, which is a kitlens with variable aperture - the EF-S 18-15mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II)

Again, I am unsure as to when this became a problem since I always fiddled around with the focus and nothing went wrong before.
I tried to the problem, but it didn't work, the build continued to function without incident.

(No crash logs have been created, only 2 "ROMx.bin"s, of 16 MB each, way before the incient.)
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on April 21, 2013, 09:35:58 AM
The focus error is not really an error, more like the lens not responding to focus commands. It happens with a lot of lenses.
The bug you reported, instead, seems a lot more serious.

Hi,

do you have a clue why you can´t control aperture in video mode with the 18-55mm Kit lense? Is it possible to control aperture in fps override mode at for example 2fps with the 50mm prime lense? Would be great for daytime timelapse without ND-filter.

thanks..keep up the good work!

Is it ok, that I always see focus over time rolling (rolling "histogram" look like) in the bottom of screen?
I can't find the way to turn it off. I want to turn it off to save cpu cycles...
In 600D it shows only when trap focus is enabled.

ps: seems that it only appears in 4:3 screen layout.

BTW, there is still bug with aperture control and flicker. And in-camera formatting shows malloc error (auto movie restart don't work too)
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on April 25, 2013, 01:05:05 AM
Aperture control is still bugged, the focus stuff is due to the 4:3 layout, not much we can do (and it doesn't really use that much cpu anyway).
The malloc error requrires a new memory management library that I'm polishing up

So I'm trying the May 2 nightly, and I can't get Focus Peaking to do anything. It seems that I can't enable GlobalDraw. The options under Overlay/Global Draw are either OFF or LiveView (a previous nightly from February had ON instead of LiveView, I think). Now OFF, I understand. But when I select LiveView, all of the other Overlay entries remain greyed out. If I select one, there's red text saying "GlobalDraw is disabled, check your settings". Well, that's the Global Draw setting right there, right?

Maybe Focus Peaking doesn't work on the T3? Do I have stale settings?

Thanks!

Hi Everyone,

I'm taking a DSLR Video class and the instructor has recommended we all download Magic Lantern, but my camera is the T3 and, of course, it isn't ready.  Does anyone have an idea when it will be finalized?  We're going into week 3 on Monday, and I just want to know if this is even option, or if I have to join the Nikoners and go without.  I have already tried using the nightly, but, being a noob, it's lost on me.

Thanks,
Lena

Post by: lena_dahling on May 09, 2013, 07:45:55 AM
It's not the installation process that I want to be easier, I've done that.  I don't see the menu buttons or any indication it's on my camera, except for some small yellow numbers in one of the indicators (can't remember which one now and don't have the camera with me.)  I thought that was indicative of the 'no buttons' issue that the build is lacking?  Or maybe I just don't know how to use the software...? :/

Well, the main thing that I'm seeing is that when going into the ML menus from non-LiveView mode, all the menu items are greyed out, and when selecting one, the help text at the bottom says (in red) that Global Draw is disabled. When I start the ML menus from LiveView, the menu looks right (not greyed out and no red warning text).

I think it would be better that when coming into the ML menus from the non-LiveView mode, the text wasn't greyed out when GlobalDraw is set to LiveView, and the red warning text didn't say "Global Draw disabled" in red, but instead said "Global Draw is only available in LiveView" in orange or yellow. If Global Draw is disabled, then the greyed out menu and current red text makes sense.

Does that make sense?

There is another kind of shutdown bugs, where DryOS state is corrupted. These are usually ML bugs, and can be fixed if you tell us how to reproduce it.

Tip: when the shutdown is not complete, the camera will not turn back on. This should help identifying the stuff that causes problems.

It should be because I usually forget swich off my cam, and it remains in standby mode...with ML eating all energy.

Anyway, my fear were big enought (and my girfriend's face too  >:()...i'll be a time with original firm in my cam...

Post by: 47Crows on May 19, 2013, 07:05:42 PM
So, since nanomad seemed to have a little bit more time on his hands and wanted suggestions, I thought of a thing, which might or might not have been said before.

Picture this if you will: I would really appreciate a ML function that allows the user to save a certain exposure preset (kinda like Expo. Presets, but not quite). At the user's choice, the exposure presets can be dumped into files (expo config files, whatever you want to call them) and/or sent directly to manual mode (M)'s exposure settings. (somebody likes to use formatting a lot)
I don't know how useful other people might find it, but I've had times when I wish I'd jotted down the exposure for certain places (say, a poorly-lit room, where you don't have access to a tripod, but have managed over a year to find a good exposure preset for it). True, you can note down the exposure settings, but what's the fun in doing that?

tl;dr, I wish I could have a "send exposure preset to manual/file(s)" function. I know, lack of buttons. Say... half-pressed shutter + the Q button, or the DEL (although you use DEL in conjunction with the wheel to compensate EV, but I doubt a quick tap will affect it).


I certainly had other ideas, way before I'd found out about ML, but obviously, they come and go. I'll be sure to come back if they do.
Peace.

There's a pull request pending called custom C-modes (google what a C-mode is on a canon camera). But it's so complex i didn't review it yet. I guess I could look at it after porting RAW stuff to the 1100D :P

Yep, kinda like what high-end Canons have, but it would be swell if they were unlimited (which is where the "dump to file" part comes in, but I guess you'd do that anyway).

Thanks for the awesome builds! Keep fighting the good fight!

I would like to try the ML on my brand new T3, but I'm afraid of. I almost don't know anything about programming, so i'm afraid i can't help you guys at all. but guess you can help me. Is there any reason for me  NOT to install it, since i don't know how to solve any issue that i may have? If,in your opinion it's acceptably safe , (i'm not saying i want 100% sure, but I just don't want to lose the equipment that i'm still paying for) how do I proceed ? Is there any file that I just got to put in the memory stick to install ML, or I have to make any complicated process before having it on my camera? If it's not asking too much, i would like to learn how to do this process of installation safely, even if the software is still in development.

The 1100D is in "maintenance mode", meaning everything that should work it's working right now. The only exception is RAW stuff but I'm working on it :)

So, do you think it wouldn't be dangerous? I mean, I know the possible risks, but overall it's ok to download this version even if I don't have much of a experience on programming and things like that?

It should be just fine, don't worry about it. It's way past the dangerous part. I was like you a few months ago and I'm not quite well financially, so ruining the only camera I have is pretty much a one-hit-one-kill for me.
If anything goes wrong (if it freezes) , turn off the camera and then turn it back on.
If that goes wrong as well, take out the battery for a couple of seconds and then put it back in.

If all else fails, format the card and that should work. (note that it will still leave a tiny bit of information on the camera that tells it to look for ML on the card - this can be eliminated by installing ML on the card, then on the camera and then uninstalling it from the camera by the same process you use to install it. it should say so after having installed it, right there with all the green text)
(am i right guys?)



Anyway, just don't click the one function that says not to click it.
Enjoy.

In other news, I would like to report what seems not to have been fixed in a long time, nor it is really required:

I'm using the May 11th version, but I have a hunch these issues have not been dealt with.

When adjusting LV brightness, contrast (and probably saturation), cause strange behavior (the increase in brightness only affects the green channel of the screen and the contrast only the red/magenta).

Also, while filming with FPS override there are 2 issues:
-it takes a while (a few frames, which for timelapse purposes is a lot) for the autoexposure to figure out what exposure it wants from the scene (I'm guessing this is a Canon-defined algorithm that smooths the exposure changes in realtime video).
-while in exposure override, it takes quite a while to change the shutter value from the ML menu (the little cyan box with the grey vertical line moves realtime, but the numerical value change itself and the effect to the exposure are greatly delayed)

Otherwise, ML works great! Fewer crashes due to insufficient memory. The format-and-keep-ML function now works splendidly ever since you solved the malloc thing. Keep fighting the good fight and to all a good life!

Is it possible to manually control exposure using dial(like in 600d by default)?
Currently exosure changes are possible only via magic lantern menu with exp. override on.

It doesn't work. I've made what it was written. I took 3 pictures, bracketing, 3 differents exposure. Then I go back to playbackmode (What is that mode ? It's when you click on play and then you can see the last picture you took?) and I hold SET. I can hold this button 10sec or 3min, nothing appers. It just says : "Scrollwheel : Exposure Fusion." but there's no fusion..

Thank you again.

Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on June 06, 2013, 12:25:09 PM
Well, the thing is the 1100D has the same capabilities the 600D has, so around 960px wide images BUT we also have half the memory of the 600D available which means no RAW video. I'll enable all the other RAW-related stuff though (zebras, ETTR, spotmeter)

Minor bug detected on the June 11th build.
If you're in LiveView, you can't get out of the ML menu using the delete button (as opposed to earlier versions).

I've tried it with GlobalDraw on, off, on but with no "widgets" (i.e. zebras, focus peaking, etc.), nothing seems to work. You can get out of the menu using unconventional methods (half shutter only so far).

I realize you might have caught it, but it seems not to be posted so I thought you might want to know it's spreading.

Yo nanomad is there anything we can do in assisting you with the possibility of RAW video for the T3? I will test anything and I mean anything LOL. Let us know what we can do. Is there a work around to address the low memory or small buffer issue?

For some reason a lot of people look down on the T3 like its a nerdy, pimpled face, couldn't bust a grape in a food fight, virgin younger brother of the other newer Canon models, that just wanted to chill out with his bros. In some ways it is: its less expensive, its lighter in weight, its "feels" a lil different, and its lacks some manual features and functions fresh out of the box. However, its still a dang good DSLR out of the store.

You throw Magic Lantern firmware into the mix and hey, you got one helluva DSLR that does rival those that cost 2 to 3 times as much!

I don't know about anybody else but I believe the T3 has benefited the most from ML and still has the most to gain. Yeah, even more so than the 50D as far as in terms of practicality. I'm not taking anything away from the 50D engineering feat, cuz that ish was way super cool, but people at least considered it pro level before ML.

Magic Lantern and you has taken our DSLR out of DSLR purgatory and has given it wings.  8)

I'm with you 120%. I'm on summer break and it's gonna rain for weeks, so I should theoretically be stuck to my PC, day and night, with an endless supply of batteries and internet, just good for testing new builds (that may or may not brick the camera, but hey, you gotta risk a little).

A little off-topic, how does the "format and keep ML" procedure work? Are the ML files stored to RAM (that would be interesting, since the camera says they're about 7 MB big and it takes some time to count (I think, but it could be just copying them very slowly to the RAM) them all)? Either that or you just move the files on the card to a sector that will be formatted lastly and then, while formatting, put them back to the top and... ah, I wish they'd teach me this in school already.

Anyway, keep 'em strong guys! We appreciate the work.

At the moment it is not possible to alter them manually, they are more or less chosen automatically.

It would be nice to choose them ourselves.

So I saw somewhere you had said there's no MLU for the 1100D.  If I'm correct in my assumptions, Liveview serves as a type of MLU.  If so, is there a way where you could have a feature, maybe on the display button, that would turn off the LCD during liveview?  Most people would find that dumb, but wouldn't that effectively give us MLU without draining the battery so fast? 

Cheers and thanks for all your effort!

Edit: I do see a powersaver that looks like it should work, but it seems to turn off the LCD and sensor when idle, but it doesn't seem to work during intervalometer use.  I've tried the different settings with no luck. Dimming the LCD will probably help quite a bit, but actually shutting it down would be ultimate.

Liveview still flips the mirror when shooting so it's a bit useless

When I set it for time lapse, I can set it so that there's a second or two delay between the end of the last shot and the start of the next.  The mirror is flipping up as soon as the exposure is over.  I hear the tiniest noise when the picture actually starts, so I'm already getting the effect of MLU, but I have to be in Liveview to do it.  I'm personally using it for astrophotography and I have a homemade tracker to keep the stars at pinpoints.  (I can use these sets I create for time lapse and/or for stacking.)  Being able to flip off the LCD in Liveview would allow me to extend the time of my time lapse sessions dramatically.  I shoot high ISO at 50mm with an f/1.8 lens, so that slap at the start of the pics can be hell when photographing the stars in the night sky.

I'm just starting to experiment with astro as well. I have a 50mm 1.8 but haven't tried it yet. What ISO do you recommend with the 50mm? I am assuming you use the aperture at 1.8? I was using the 18-55 at 18mm on the lowest aperture and a shutter speed of 30 seconds and ISO of 1600 (as recommended in the e-book 'Shooting Stars').
I'm still wondering what the best way is to combat noise. Do you do any stacking?

(Sorry for the diversion in the thread).

(Sorry for the diversion in the thread).

Magic lantern has wonderful options for keeping your laptop inside where it's dry!  Between time lapse and bulb settings, there's no need for the Canon EOS program with a USB strung between your camera and laptop just waiting for you to bring them both crashing down!

You'll want to stop the f/1.8 down a bit.  Maybe f/2.5ish, give or take.  (Most lenses seem to have better pictures stopped down.)  As for ISO, it all depends on your equipment and your shooting conditions.  I can get away with a lower ISO because of my tracking (Much longer exposures before star trailing).  (Look up Barndoor tracker.)  If you have a lot of light pollution, then high ISO will wash out your pics when doing long exposures.  At 50mm, you're also going to get a lot of star movement on anything over 5-10 seconds.  It's really a game of trial and error.  Consider shooting in a fluorescent white balance, too. 

Yes, I do plenty of stacking.  I use Deepskystacker for alignment stacking and Photoshop for things like startrails.  Here are some examples of what I've done.  Most of these were taken with the Rebel XS.  http://pinterest.com/pin/459437599456103974/  My T3 just got delivered yesterday and I've got almost 7k pics on it already.  Check out my youtube for some of my time lapse videos.  http://www.youtube.com/user/Windoze321

As for noise, there are various ways for combating it.  One is to use a program like BlackFrame NR, but if you're wanting to remove them from 1,000's of pics at once (time lapse), then this guide will help you through Photoshop: http://www.foundphotography.com/2005/11/batch-action-to-remove-hot-pixels/  It's a bit complicated, but it worked wonders for me.

Thanks!  The Orion Nebula was taken with my sisters' T3i with her 250mm and my tracker. The ones of the Jupiter and the Moon were taken with the XS while being held up to my telescope.  (Oh how I wish it had tracking!)

I installed ML the day I got my brand new 1100D.  I couldn't resist, lol.

@nanomad - As far as testing goes:  Last night I shot 4 straight hours of time lapse with it without a hitch at 1 pic every 7 seconds with 5 second exposures.  Then today I shot for 2 hours straight at 5 second intervals (regular pics at 1/1000), so I think it's safe to say that that feature is pretty stable.  On the next clear night I intend on using ML with the time lapse AND the bulb feature.  I want a couple hours of 1 minute exposures of the Milky Way, so that should be a pretty good test.  I'll report my results when I have clear skies.

I can confirm this. It has been missing the last time I've checked as well (est. 18 hours ago) and now the 15th build is only a few kB in size (as opposed to the regular ones at around 3 MB) as it's lacking the .zip itself.

i hope you guys didn't take out the README/manual file

Okay!  I changed direction for my time lapse.  Instead of using the intervalometer feature, I used the forced fps in video mode.  Dropped it to .333 fps and forced changes to the ISO, shutter speed and f/n. The LCD cut off wonderfully using the power saver feature.  I have taken a 1 hour and now a 2 hour time lapse.  I don't know how long I can get, yet, I'll keep adding time along the way. 

This is totally awesome because now I can do time lapse without adding 1,000's of shutter actuations to my precious camera! 

Not only does it save my shutter, it save me HOURS of post processing!!  It comes right out of the camera as a .mov file instead of 1,000's of pictures to resize and turn into a movie!

Thank you SO much for this and all of your work!! (That goes for everyone involved, including the testers!)

I have a question.  What happens when the battery dies during video?  Will it save the file 1st, or is all lost? 

To view my results using Magic Lantern, check this out.  It's a pretty great time lapse of a storm coming in.  It gets better and better as it goes!:
On a side note... I keep seeing people talking about restarting their videos.  Maybe it's because of the dramatically reduced frame rate I'm using, but it's never stopped on me at up to two hours of straight recording!

Cheers!

Windoze, the video looks great!
I like the idea of saving the shutter from wear and tear - that is one of the reasons I hadn't done any time lapse work on the T3. It is quite new and I didn't want to just treating it like a workhorse.

What is the "f/n" you mention in the settings?

I'm looking forward to installing ML, but too scared just yet  :-\

What is the "f/n" you mention in the settings?

Aperture or f/stop. I moved it up to f/11(ish) with a shutter speed of 1/240, I think.  Also I set the ISO to 100.

This stuff works great, but you have to be real patient.  When you set the fps to such a low # (.333), it takes awhile for everything to update.  Changing the shutter (electronic) speed takes awhile.  There's lag in the # actually changing and then more lag in it actually changing the liveview image to match.  I don't know if this can be made to go faster or not.  It works fine, though.

ps, I've been looking over the documentation -

Is it possible to get 60 frames per second filming with the 1100D?
Normally we are limited to 24fps or 30fps in the menu.
I see there is an override in ML, but it mentions that overcranking doesn't work very well.

The over-ride changes your shooting fps, not your playback fps.  Your camera will play back at either 25 or 30/fps regardless of what you set the over-ride to.  It will save the video file this way, too.   If my brain is functioning correctly, anything above what the actual camera fps is set to would give you a slow motion video when being played back.  (I haven't tried it, but based on my time lapse shooting, it would make sense.)  I'm shooting 1/fps right now.  When played back, it will be 30/fps.  So in 1 minute, I'm shooting 60 frames which will be 2 seconds of video (1/fps*60s = 60 fames/30fps = 2s).  If I were shooting 60/fps, it would give me 3,600 frames in 1 minute or 120 seconds of video (60/fps*60s = 3,600 frames/30fps = 120s).  So now one minute of real time shooting would take 2 minutes to play back, giving you slow motion. 

Someone please correct me if I'm mistaken.

In that documentation are install notes.  In the install notes it says:

There are two ways of running user code on Canon DSLR cameras:
1. Using the update process with a .fir file, which must be digitally signed.
2. Using the bootdisk process: the autoexec.bin file is loaded and executed. This file
does not have to be signed, but the bootdisk flag must be enabled in the camera.

If what I've read before is correct, then as long as you've already gotten it to work with a .fir file, then the flag has been set inside the camera and it should be able to execute the .bin file.  If you haven't gotten it to work before, then I would assume you would need to find the correct .fir file first.  (You can find one in the archives.)

First, i set on manual focus to infinite, then move it to AF
Next open Magic Lantern menu, and go to shoot, and click on intervalometer, and i tried choosing -1, -25, +1, +25 on theManual Focus Ramp opcion, then i click Q to exit from the submenu, click on the LiveView button, and it starts to take photos, but the focus dont move.

Found some sort of a bug: while using FPS override, it is next to impossible to enter the ML menu from LiveView (it takes a lot more del key pushes than before the 18th of June nightly; and yes, it was tricky to enter the ML menu before because of this, but now it's rather impossible).

Also, in Movie Mode, using FPS override, if you open the Canon menu and close it, the screen will stay turned off (definitely off, not on and just black). Another scenario with FPS override is that if the screen turns off (at least while recording) (by adjusting the powersave settings from ML), there are many chances the camera will freeze upon trying to turn on the screen immediately (the screen stays off, the mirror stays up even after turning off the camera from the switch - all comes back to normal once you take the battery and put it back in).

If you do not try to do mess with anything, a FPS overridden movie is saved and nothing bad happens.

Uhm, the thing is...we use timers to check long/short presses but FPS override screws it (the check!), hence you cannot open ML menu. A quick suggestion is go out of LV mode which in turn should turn FPS override off...sucks...

No what I meant is that it seems to me that with FPS override GUI events are being processed somewhat slower, which means a longer time between a press->unpress transition -> no shortpress detected -> no ML Menu

Thanks for the suggestion, that's how I got out of it. I didn't panic, because worst-case scenario I would just have to replace the config file with a backup I do each time I get a nightly.

Also, I thought how the del button works, so I tried short, repeated pulses to sync with the frames (in case it can actually detect like a 0ms pulse), long pushes, nothing worked. Thanks for explaining the principle so that I won't mash the buttons off trying to fool the camera.
Oh, and exiting the ML menu by pressing del still doesn't work.

Suggestion: can you guys implement a P mode for Movie? (as in, I get to choose the ISO and the camera gets to choose Tv and Av) I love controlling the ISO, but that also means I have to adjust other settings as well, which is sometimes quite time-consuming. Thanks!

Well, you need to have had a .fir at some point.  After that, I think you can just use the .bin.

Keep in mind that I'm new here, too.  If we could get an admins input here, that would be reassuring.

I think that the .bin replaces the .fir, but you have to have run the .fir at least one time in the past without reflashing your firmware back to OEM inbetween.

You have the correct firmware.  Look in the archives section for the June 12th release.  That's the one I'm using right now and it seems to work fine.  I haven't upgraded to the latest, yet.  Partially because I'm not positive that I should erase the whole card including the .bin and replace it with everything from the latest release.  I think that is correct.  I'll test it out by adding the new release to a separate SD card, I just haven't gotten around to it.  There's a storm brewing as we speak  :)  Literally  8)

Precisely! The .fir tells the firmware upgrade system on the camera to look for the .bin file on the SD every time it boots up (if it's not there, i.e. another SD card, it just carries on with its normal Canon firmware, but it does the check every time). Holding down the SET button (it has to be at its default setting, so no DoF preview custom function setting, guys) while powering up the camera will bypass the ML boot-up sequence (the bootflag is still enabled, mind you) just that one time you're booting up.

Addendum: looks like somebody enjoys formatting their text as well.

If you want to do it easily, just go into the archives and get the one from the 12th.  Unzip it and put everything you see onto your SD card (not in any folders).  Then put it in your camera and turn it on.  Go to your firmware update (Might have to be in Manual mode to see that option in your camera menu) and update it.  It will tell you it worked and to restart your camera.

Edit:  Once installed, tap the Av button to bring up the ML menu.  Then hit your Menu button to bring up the Grid menu.  (I like this way best, but you don't have to do that.)  Highlight the feature you want to check out and hit your Set button to activate or the Q button to adjust the settings of the highlighted feature.

2nd Edit:  You only have to do the 1st paragraph one time.  After that, you're good to go unless you erase it off of your SD card.

As for ease of use...  I've had my camera for 6 days now.  Tomorrow will be a week.  I've never used Magic Lantern before.  It takes a bit to get the feel of it, but just work on one thing at a time.  For me it was time lapse through the Video (FPSOverride) setting (along with exposure override), and when you drop the fps down as low as I do, then it lags pretty bad when changing the shutter speed.  I wasn't sure it was working and it was a bit frustrating.  Once I figured out I had to just be patient and wait for the changes to the readout of the shutter speed and wait a bit more for the changes to show up on the LCD, I was good to go.  As for everything else I've tried, the changes are pretty instant.  Hoping for some lightning so I can check out the Motion Detect feature!  That should be fun!!   8)

Correct.  The bootflag will still be set to look for software, but upon finding none, it just load normally.  That's the only (and extremely tiny) change that occurs to your actual firmware when ML is installed the 1st tie.)  I believe that can be undone by reflashing your camera with the OEM firmware.

You can also just hold the 'Set' button on your camera when turning it on and it will bypass ML as well.

You just set up your picture for the exposure/aperture/ISO like you would normally do and then hit the Av button to open the LR menu.  Then hit the menu button to bring up the grid style.  Highlight Interval and hit the Q button.  Adjust the time between pics and the delay before the 1st pic. After that I 1/2 press the shutter to start it.  If you're looking to do time lapse without the shutter count rising, then do it the way I described by using Movie Mode on your camera and setting the FPSOverride and the Exposure Override.  No need for the Intervalometer using that method.  Make sure to use the power saving settings to cut off the LCD during recording to save on your battery.

Post bug reports right here.  If something goes wrong, they say to turn off the camera and take out the battery for a minute.

I'm about to post a bug report on the Intervalometer.  Nothing that will threaten the camera, but something that needs to be addressed.

Bug Report - Intervalometer - I was shooting some star trail pictures and ran into the same problem twice.  I set it up on my camera to take 29 second exposures and set the intervalometer to take a picture every 30 seconds.  (I have a fast Class 10 card with UHS Speed Class 1.)  The first set took exactly 100 pictures perfectly.  When I went to check it, the red light was flashing.  I lit up the display it was counting down and was at 28+ minutes.  The 2nd set went for 130 pictures.  I went outside at the 50 minute mark to see if it was going to stop at 100 again, but it didn't.  When I went out to check again later, the light was flashing again.  This time it was counting down and at 42+ minutes. 

This happened using the release from June 19th.  This did not happen using the one from June 13th, but the setup was different.  Using the one from June 13th, the setup was a 5 second exposure with the intervalometer set at 6 seconds.  I took well over 1,000 pics without an issue. 

So, I don't know if the problem cropped up between releases or if it happened because of the longer exposure time of the last attempt.

Cheers and thank you for all your hard work!

You can enable a dummy shooting mode (snap simulation) and just let the camera blink and beep. It should be enough to reproduce the bug - of course, if it's not caused by some memory overflow when taking a picture.

There were some changes to timing backend, so it might be related. If the problem happens after exactly X hours/minutes/whatever after powering on the camera, I know where to look.

Okay then, I'll try that out.  Unfortunately, though, I only have one battery and I just set it to charge.  I also need a couple/few hours of sleep.  It will still be about 12 hours quicker than waiting till dark, lol.

Now that I think of it, that very well could be.  The difference between 100 and 130 shots is about 14-15 minutes at 29 second exposures.  It did take me about that much longer to set up for the 1st shoot.  For the 2nd shoot, I knew my settings and didn't have to take any test shots.  I also didn't have to wait for my neighbors to go inside because I was setting up in a more secure location.

Edit:  I will do the test on the old firmware if when I wake up I don't see a response saying you found it.

Relevant to the earlier issue of Av button pressing in LiveView during FPS override: it* seems to happen the same without FPS override as well.

*the Av button doing practically nothing for a good few pushes (around 20) until it shows you the ML menu.

I was with GlobalDraw active, but only with zebras (as opposed to my other, previous display presets which include focusing peak and other GPU-consuming tasks). Something happened after the release of the 13th/18th of June nightly which caused erratic behavior with the Av button (it used to only not respond in LiveView when trying to close the ML menu via the Av button)

(hope I didn't accidentally my whole English, but I've tried to formulate the sentences like 3 times)

Bug Report Update - Intervalometer - Okay, I reverted to the June 13th release and ran (am running) the intervalometer at 30 seconds with the shutter speed at 29 seconds.  No problem at all.  The camera has been running for over 2 hours and 20 minutes and it's up to 275 simulated shots.  Now time to recharge my only battery :-)

Aw, man, you should have used the save-to-422 so that you would have not wasted simulated shots for nothing.

(if we even have 422 anymore, I haven't checked in months)

I just looked for it and couldn't find it.  If it is in there, it's hiding pretty well or I'm blind. 

If the skies are clear tonight, I'll be running the exact conditions as last night on the earlier release.

The 130 pictures that it did take were great, though!  http://pinterest.com/pin/459437599456549748/

Wow, that looks great!
How did you get the trees in there? Are they light painted?
Or did you start shooting earlier when it was lighter?
I'd love to try and get some pics like this.

Thanks!  Yeah, they're painted by the carriage lights of the house.

Edit:  ISO 400, 29s exposures, f/4.5, @20mm (Stock 18-55mm lens).  I think I shot them in a Tungsten White Balance.  Just set your manual focus to a bright star before hand (using the 10x magnification).  Absolutely no editing besides reducing the size of them and stacking them in Photoshop.  I left Blending for all the photos set to Normal.

That's a great shot!  Mine was taken through my telescope with a 12" mirror while holding the camera in front of the eyepiece.  I only had the 2" 30mm eyepiece on it for a magnification of 50x.  (I can go 545x, but the 30mm is the only one I have that fits the whole moon in it.)

Bug Report Update: Intervalometer - I ran it under the exact same conditions as last night except I used the release from the 13th and everything was fine.  I stopped it at 2 hours and 40 minutes and it took 282 pics. 

It should have only been 2 hours and 21 minutes, though (30s interval * 282 pics = 8,460s / 60 = 141 minutes or 2h 21m).  I deleted all the setup pics and only counted the ones from the time that the intervalometer was running, so that wasn't it.  I had written down the start and stop time of the intervalometer and it matched the time given for the 1st and last pics of the set.  I see no gaps in the stars when stacked, though.  Probably due to the combination of the bulb and intervalometer. I'm guessing that's why "There were some changes to timing backend".

Cheers and again, thanks for all your work!

Windoze, OK, so I installed ML and it seems to have gone alright. All the menus are there etc.
I just want to make sure I understand as to how to set shutter speed, Aperture and ISO for movie mode.

I have Exposure Override *ON* from the main menu and have set my aperture, shutter speed and ISO to what i want them to be.

This means that now when i am in movie mode it is using my settings and not the apparent settings that display on the bottom of the screen while in movie mode/live view.

This appears to be the case, as the brightness does not change whether I am pointing it to the window (very bright) or into shadow.

Had some weirdness trying to use it today.
I had put another blank card in without ML and it worked fine (without ML running of course).
When I switched back to the card with ML on it, it wouldn't run when I pressed the AV button. I knew it was on there because of the little yellow numbers under 'ISO' on the screen, but the ML menu wouldn't come up, like it wasn't installed.

I had to press AV a few times in quick succession to get the ML to come up at all.

When it finally did, I couldn't seem to get the User defined Cinestyle to come up. It was like it had disappeared, but it came back a short time later.

So yeh, a bit weird.

UPDATE: I just put the card with ML on it back in (after having a non-ML card in it) and ML doesn't show up at all.

Just saw your post this morning now (after I tried below).

At first I thought it might be the battery, because it was getting flat, so I charged it overnight and tried again this morning.
I put the ML card in again but nothing. It didn't appear to be there. I know it was on there because when I put the card in the LED flashes once.

Anyway, I did the firmware update thing again (the ML installation) and it seemed to go OK. The green menu came up telling me ML was installed etc. So I turned the camera off and on, and again - nothing. I pressed the Av key a few times quickly and eventually the menu came up. I turned the camera off and on again, but this time no amount of pressing would bring up the menu.

Have to go to work this morning so will try again later.

(ps, am using build from the 12th)

Is there an option to make numbers bigger when using Intervalometer ? I am talking about that numbers of taken pics . It happend to me few times that I was really low to the ground with my camera, and exp. was 10 sec with 12 sec betwen pics, and beside that I had to crouch to get to the camera, it was almost impossible for me to see the number of pics  because whole process was really fast and the numbers are so small and with everything around them and it was (almost) impossible to see  anything.
I dont want to bother too much, and you dont have to make adjustments because of me, I am just curious if there is option to change that or if you have time, somewhere down the road to add that option :))

Nomad, I had similar problems like Fletch, but I didnt change cards or even take the card out of the camera and my ML stopped working.
Did 2 sets of pictures the day before 2 x 300 pics and today I did 300 with no problems but after that when I moved to new location and set up everything I just couldnt get ML working. Pressing AV didnt do anything, turning on / off didnt help, battery was on half, I could see free GB in the bottom of the screen but ML woudnt come up. I have build from 13. The only way it would come up on the screen was if I pressed the button under AV Camera one with red dot.. then I would see all that things from ML, and pressing AV then worked.
Just recharged my battery and now ML comes on when I press AV every third time or something like that, but at least its working now.
Should I delete the files inside ML/SETTINGS like you suggested to Fletch or ?

Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: Windoze321 on June 28, 2013, 07:57:26 AM
I have a request.  Using expanded HDR for photos, would it be possible to make the exposure margin higher than 5?  I'd like to see options up to 15.  Here's the thing.  Even at 5, I have to take 3+ pictures to get the effect I'm looking for and everything in between is a total waste.  What I'm trying to do is take a long exposure of the moonlit clouds.  I would like to HDR it with a very short exposure that gives me detail in the Moon.  So a broader range would allow me to do it with just 2 shots instead of 3-5.  (I'm taking them in the mode that adjusts the shutter, not the other things.  I want to keep a low ISO to reduce noise.)  Having had a shutter failure in my last camera, I'm really trying to keep my shutter count down as much as I can without deterring  my photography habits.

As always, cheers and thank you for this wonderful tool!

Using the 9th of July 2013 version.
Mine can't even load the .sym file.
It returns some error among the lines of "MISSING SYMBOL FILE: B:/ML/MODULES" at the top, then the screen ends and on the bottom it says "ist Error loading 'B:/ML/MODULES/t3_105.sym': File does not ex" then the screen ends again.

I haven't checked for crashlogs or anything, I will in the morning when I will get to my card reader.

Suggestion(and this should be available for all cameras): an adjustable panorama-making feature (based on ghost image rendering method), which allows the user to choose the direction in which he/she'll pan the camera, overlapping percentage (how much of the previous image is shown), opacity and a greyscale option, which I imagine would be of great help in some contrasty scenes.

I am aware one user attempted in 2012 to create code for this kind of feature, but I found it a bit over-complicated for what it's supposed to be (it required a precise number of shots, focal length, etc.).

In short, it's about an addition to ghost image, which allows you to choose how much of the image is shown and where it is shown.
(maybe even the automatic creation of a special folder per panorama?)

never really had problems with panoramas, even when I was in hurry, like standing in the middle of the road, click the liveview, lets says 30-50% of previous , click click , up, down.. and edit it later.. maybe it would help in the camera, but I always would trust more to the software on the computer, than on camera.. but thats just me, I guess

Post by: 47Crows on July 16, 2013, 01:56:56 PM
Possible bug: when using multiple LiveView presets and "Powersaving in LiveView" with the option to enable the powersaving feature via the DISP button - By pressing the DISP button, the camera cycles through the LV presets until the end and then the powersaving feature switches on. If you press again, the screen reverts to the original state (on/brightness restored), but the LV preset is stuck to the last one.
To switch LV presets, you have to go to the ML menu and press Q while highlighting the GlobalDraw setting.

I think it should revert to LV preset 0 and so on after having completed the preset cycle and the powersaving activation.

This "bug" is present in multiple nightlies, I am unable to pinpoint the build itself, so I'm thinking it's an error in implementation somewhere.

I got a problem with update ML. Please, help me. I can freely install/uninstall nightly builds up to 13 June (with 1100D-105.fir), but I cannot do that for any newer builds (without the 1100D-105.fir flie).
I do:
- unzip new build (from 16 July for example)
- overwrite files on my SD (which already contains June 13 build proper installed)
- insert card into the camera
- close the door and ...

The LED lights continuously and camera does not power on

What do I wrong? I see that you, guys, can update ML. Please describe how do you do that?

I'm following the instructions http://wiki.magiclantern.fm/install (http://wiki.magiclantern.fm/install) but

I cannot install any ML builds newer than 13 June on "clean" camera - Firmware Update just does nothing (It does not show the "green screen").
I cannot start camera with overwritten ML files on my SD - camera won't start.
I tryed to "reinstall" original Canon firmware 1.0.5 - it did not help.

Post by: Derezzed on July 19, 2013, 08:57:33 PM
I've been using ML for 6 months now and love it! The HDR features are awesome! I do have a question though.

The 1100D/T3 does have a mirror lockup for cleaning only in the original firmware. But it won't let me shoot images with the mirror up. I shoot a lot of night photography and the shake can get pretty bad sometimes effecting the sharpness of the image. I've read a lot of the documentation and I've seen the mirror lockup feature on the other version of ML in the SHOOT menu but its missing in the 1100D/T3 menu.

It would be a great feature to have. If I have missed a post that it cannot be done or missing some info on it, please point me in the right direction.

Thanks again for making ML possible! :)

Confirming the freeze continuing on the July 20th, 2013 build. Once the autoexec.bin is placed on the card and the card in the camera, the LED stays lit after closing the card door and the only fix is removing the battery and putting an older firmware (which, for me, is the July 11th build).

FPSOverride: I can set it to 1 frame every 5 seconds but I seem to be restricted by the optimization setting.  In low light mode, I can get the shutter speed as long as 4 seconds, but no lower the 3.9, I think.  At the same FPS I can go to the High FPS mode and then my shutter speeds are 1/30 - 1/450 or something.  Could we get a combination of the two?  I'm using the gradual exposure (awesome, by the way!) but I want to start at around 1/450 and end around 4, but I've found no way to do it without changing the mode from high to low light.  This would be perfect for the 'Holy Grail' if they were combined.  I've played with the advanced settings, but can't seem to get it in there, either.

Booted up fine for me. I had to use the jun13 .fir file to install though. I'll play around with it a little while and report back if there are any problems.

Edit: There seems to be flickering between the ML and creating a user defined shooting style menus when adjusting settings in the ML video menu.

Still having problems with intervalometer and bulb exposure. The older build I was using from back in Apr just simply crashed when you tried to do a bulb override + intervalometer, I think I saw that others had reported this. I just recently put the Jul31 nightly on there and it no longer crashes, the only problem is that after the first shot it goes from being set on BULB back to 30", and so none of the subsequent pictures use the bulb override amount, they simply are 30 seconds.

hi everybody,

i just found out about magic lantern, and it really seemes fantastic!

also spend a time reading the forums, but i still got a question.

I have a canon 1100d, and at the downloadpage i don't see a stable version for my camera.
I did find the nightly builds, but it says you already need to have a stable version running on your camera.

what should i do? try to install the stable version, which i doubt will work on my camera, and then install a nightly version? or am i overlooking something?

thanks in advance for the help.

Friend, there is no stable at all build, but there are nightly builds, and you can find them here:
http://nanomad.magiclantern.fm/nightly/archive/

And you need to have the .fir file in the sd too, u can extract it from older builds.

To install it
Make sure that u have the battery full
Put the .fir file in the sd
Put the last build files in the sd
And in your camera go to the menu, and click on firmware version, and click update
Wait a little, and there will be a screen with green words, read it and restart the camera

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to install ML on my 1100D but having troubles with launching it.

Here is the sequence of steps I tried:
1. take 2GB sd card, format it in the camera in low-level mode
2. restore defaut setting in the camera
3. copy contents of nightly NEXT.2013Aug12 zip to the root of sd card, copy .fir file from 1100D.RC3 zip to the root of sd card
4. start camera with the sd card, turn it to M mode and go to software update section in menu, update it with the data from sd card, reboot camera
After this step firmware version in menu is changed to 1.05-NEXT.2013Aug12..., in quick control screen now I see ML footer that shows its version and header with current date. But pressing AV button doesn't pop up ML menu as described in the manual. It just switches to another control in the screen and back.

Am I doing wrong or forgot something? How can I investigate why ML menu doesn't appear?
Tried the same sequence with NEXT.2013Jul13 version - the same results.

I will be grateful for any help.

Upd: Problem solved, the thing was that I pressed av button too long. It should be short press instead. And now it works!

Hope there is!

Bug: I don't know for how much this has been an issue, but whenever I hold the EV button and scroll the dial (i.e. I change exposure), when I lift the finger from the EV button, it (the camera) automatically enters the ML menu, as if I'd just tapped the EV button. Now, I sort of understand the instructions behind the tap vs. hold, but I can swear I didn't have this problem until recently. It's as if after every click of the dial, ML registers a new press of the EV button.

Anyone remember of a time where changing EV didn't fly you into the ML menu?

I have searched for this on other threads as well and I had no luck.
Is the option to record video of a zoomed area (5x, 10x) possible on our camera? (There has been suspicious activity around my house and I need zoomed footage on the individuals as soon as possible.)

(i.e.: you press zoom, the image gets zoomed, then you press record and instead of zooming back by itself, the camera records the zoomed view)

Thanks either way.

Not possible on the T3 but most other cameras have this capability built in, so it's not something that ML has has much motivation to implement, and would probably require a lot of work. I think there's some possibility of doing zoom on raw video on other cameras, but raw on T3 does not stand much of a chance with the tiny buffer and slow card reader

I know about the RAW capabilities being totally 0, but I just want regular recording of the zoom window, even if it's just the LV frame buffer (720xsomething). Still a nope?

Then again, I'm not a part of the dev team and I probably won't be for the following 2 years while I polish my C skills.

Well, the thing is the 1100D has the same capabilities the 600D has, so around 960px wide images BUT we also have half the memory of the 600D available which means no RAW video. I'll enable all the other RAW-related stuff though (zebras, ETTR, spotmeter)

As I see several are requesting this, I am sure I speak for most when I say we are thrilled to read that you are working on ETTR for the 1100D!! :)
The 1100D is a highly capable camera, 4K capable (timelapse) with very good low light performance.

With ETTR/auto-ETTR enabled on this camera, we have an affordable timelapse bad-a** 4K capable monster, that can produce flicker-free timelapses from dusk til dawn! ;)

Any news on progress on ETTR is welcome! :)

Your hard work is appreciated!

I think you and 47crows are having a little misunderstanding about what you are intending to do. You mentioned the word "focus" in your original post, but I think what you want to do has nothing to do with focus.

It appears that what you want to do is desaturate an image except for one particular color that you can select. This is not at all what focus peaking does. Focus peaking just draws colored dots on the live view screen to help you easily see what part of the image is in focus, and it only shows on the screen, once you take an image it will look normal.

What you are trying to do is very easy to do (and should be done) in post, but not in camera. Most devs don't want to waste time making ML do things that can easily be done in post (see the 4th item in this list: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=950.0 ). If you would like to learn how to do this make a new thread in http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?board=14.0 and myself or someone else will help you, but I'm not going to explain it here b/c it's off topic.

Hi again!

I am trying to reactivate RAW stuff. First things first, so I've tried LV:

RAW_LV_EDMAC is 0xC0F26208

CAM_COLORMATRIX1 is
       6444,  10000, -904,  10000, -893, 10000, \
       -4563, 10000, 12308, 10000, 2535, 10000, \
       -903,  10000, 2016,  10000, 6728, 10000

dynamic_ranges is {1099, 1098, 1082, 1025, 965, 877, 784}

I have defined CONFIG_RAW_LIVEVIEW and a RAW histogram appears when I switch to LV. But LV freezes, the camera seems to take a picture and crashes with a nice Err 70 (assert 0 in evf). I am not quite sure to understand what is going on. Any ideas?

EDIT: And about Photo mode, I think we need a SSS_STATE (which should be easy to guess considering addresses of other cameras). How can I generate a state diagram from the firmware? And how do I use the interception code to find RAW_PHOTO_EDMAC?
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: k10w on September 09, 2013, 01:38:34 AM
not perfect like a true ettr mode but I find uniWB in Av get similar results. Guess you could experiment with turning up EC+/- if shooting scenes where the correctly exposed pics histogram is shifted right (eg. predominantly/exclusively sky compositions at dawn).

YMMV but I found this works well enough for me as there is less bias and underexposure than vanilla WB (as far as raw goes obviously) since there is no RGB multipliers and histo clipping mirrors raw much closer than vanilla wb which is jpeg data made with multiplier values in the channels to generate a jpeg which often means good looking exposures are actually a stop under in cr2.

I only use timelapse for star stacking (dss and registax) so always in M never Av so no experience of how it may work out for long timelapse stuff on night to dawn/dusk transitions where obviously some semiauto exposure may be more useful but thought I'd mention it in case not tried that approach.

Yeah, Nanomad's nightly site is no longer accessible, instead, a "unified" download center has been put in its place.
The archive is gone (good thing I kept all my nightlies on the PC) to some extent, and all the present builds have failed to compile.

Just pointing it out.

Oh no, I hope it will be fixed. Please keep a working download link for the 1100D!   :(

Edit:
Latest build failed. As a workaround, navigate to http://builds.magiclantern.fm/ , select the 1100D and click on the "Show Older Builds" button.

Edit2: All listed older builds have failed, too, so Where is the last downloadable build?

Edit3: All builds fail after
make[2]: Entering directory `/var/lib/jenkins/jobs/1100D.105/workspace/modules/raw_rec'
Since raw_rec isn't supported for 1100D anyway, isn't it a problem that it enters that directory and tries to build there?

I just want to download Magiclantern on my 1100d for the intervalometer function (I live in Egypt  and can't find a physical intervalometer device so Magiclantern is my only chance of timelapse.)
So is there a version I can download that would work on my 1100d?

P.S: I am aware of the danger and know there isn't an official version for the 1100d.

The nightly builds are on the first page (http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/). They work now.

However, since you've never had ML installed, you'll need to find a working .fir to "initialize" the first ML boot-up. (the .fir only tells the camera to search for the ML files from now on)
One can be found here http://nanomad.magiclantern.fm/1100D/magiclantern-v2.3.1100D.RC3.zip.

So, in conclusion, get the files from the first link, extract the zip to the card (root directory) and copy the .fir file from the 2nd link into the root directory of the card.

Good luck!

I'll have a drink in your honor then, kind sirs!

Yesterday I went to shoot a timelapse with FPS override and I was thinking: RAW video should be very much doable at low framerates, right? Because the camera has time to dump the buffer and the SD can receive it.

This feature should have an indicator embedded in the FPS override menu, which will tell you how much continuous time (frames AND real time in hh:mm:ss) you can record at the current framerate before the buffer gets full.

Just my 2p.


Offtopic, what ever happened to the 'scripts' tab? I found myself bored one day and I wanted to play sokoban, but then I remembered ever since 'modules' was implemented, the scripts were nowhere to be seen.

The nightly builds are on the first page (http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/). They work now.

However, since you've never had ML installed, you'll need to find a working .fir to "initialize" the first ML boot-up. (the .fir only tells the camera to search for the ML files from now on)
One can be found here http://nanomad.magiclantern.fm/1100D/magiclantern-v2.3.1100D.RC3.zip.

So, in conclusion, get the files from the first link, extract the zip to the card (root directory) and copy the .fir file from the 2nd link into the root directory of the card.

Good luck!

Thank you, Sir. Very helpful.
But I faced a strange problem when trying to copy the files to the root of the SD card. The card wouldn't let me copy anything onto it, and gives me a message saying "you don't have permission to perform this action".

I tried putting the SD card straight into the computer's card reader, and tried an external card reader, and also tried accessing the card through the USB cable with the card inside the camera.

I am using windows 7. Is there anything I can do to be able to copy the ML files to the card?

Post by: 47Crows on September 14, 2013, 04:23:28 PM
Copying the files through a USB cable (with the card in the camera) will probably never work, since the PC uses certain protocols to communicate with the camera, which exclude strange file transfers.

As for copying the files via a card reader, make sure you don't have the LOCK switch enabled on the card, as it might distrupt file handling.

If this doesn't work either, try copying some normal files to and from the card (jpegs, MOVs).

If this still doesn't work, try formatting the card (I would suggest using SD Formatter if you've never formatted the card from Windows https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/).


It has to work at some point.

I have been using ML on my 1100D from long time now. But I have used only few features of it which I use almost daily. Like custom focus point selection, trap focus, one click zoom etc. I must say it really helps me. Thanks a lot dev.

Now I was wondering about video features supported on 1100D. Is there a list of supported features for video? I have no idea about it so far but I would like to test and help reporting bugs if I can.

Thanks.

I just downloaded and started using ML on my new 1100D. I have one thing to say, THIS IS FREAKING BRILLIANT! It's almost too good to be true (not to mention free)!
I now have full manual control over video, ISO, Shutter speed and aperture. (which wasn't in my wildest dreams for the 1100d)
I can shoot at 24fps with framerate override and even do timelapse at less than 1 fps without wearing out the shutter.
HDR video is absolutely incredible.
Other small things like rack focus, magic zoom, histogram, peeking and zebras are very helpful and easy to use, just like on my old professional camcorders.
I just can't say how grateful I am to you guys at ML and I think you should start charging for this. It's only your right.

I'd be glad to help with funding or testing to help the development.

Quick suggestion: can we get more customization on the keys? For instance, I could really use the flash button for any other function (say DOF preview).

Speaking of which, is there any way you can fix the conflicts between SET (C.Fn. as DOF preview) during Live View and the ML menu? Whenever I press the SET button, the camera goes into DOF preview mode and closes the ML menu. I'm just asking if it's possible, because it seems really weird, since this only affects Live View.

I've got to say how much I love magic lantern and how it just helps us who can't afford the expensive dslr's out there and without magic lantern I wouldn't have more work space with my videos!

But I was wondering I just got a nightly build and most of the modules don't seem to work like the raw and dual iso module it says that it will load on next reboot but when I turn off then turn on with the on and off switch my camera just says error linking failed on the bottom of the screen. I know it is just a nightly build but i was wondering if I missed anything? Or if there is a way to reboot my camera with working modules ,is there a link where i can get working links for the modules?

Just picked up today's build (2013Sep19). The font change was a surprise, even though I'd noticed the extra "fonts" folder.

Both "file_man" and "autoexpo" still work (even both at once), the others don't (linking error).
While the font change is welcome, I'd much rather have visible font in the debugging dialogues (show tasks, etc.). I understand there's a lot of info to be shown, but that could be rendered at a higher resolution and then just zoomed in (I guess).

Keep it up guys!

PS: The arkanoid game works as well. That's weird, yo.

They don't link because they require features in the core that have not been implemented on the 1100D, and so the symbols are missing.

Yes, but say, you load a couple of "working" modules and one "non-working" module and they all fail. I can understand if it's a safety precaution, but I don't get why.

Someone generated a document from the source code showing the state of all features on all of the cameras, but I don't remember where I saw it, so I'd just go straight to the source:
https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/src/ce9fb256205c0b850ca7209b26973f0788e49447/platform/1100D.105/features.h?at=unified

lines that start with #undef means that feature is disabled (b/c it's not working yet) on the 1100D

Basically everything that has to do with audio and stuff that depends on RAW image buffers (like raw_rec and ettr) are not working (yet)

FONTS.DAT is missing since the Sep12 build and it's making the fresh install process quite impossible without older nightlies (or a unified release).

Post by: 47Crows on September 29, 2013, 09:52:49 AM
I know about the new fonts, I managed to test some recent nightlies with the new eye-candy, while having a bootable card and a booting camera.

I'm just saying that when you need to make the camera boot from the card, you need a .fir (which I've had for quite a while) . After the bootflag is enabled, you get a yellow-text screen (as opposed to the green-text success screen) saying the "bootflag is enabled", but "FONTS.DAT was missing, please copy all files (a few MB)", however, the camera refuses to load ML after restart.
My first (and so far only) solution was to copy the FONTS.DAT from an older nightly.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: dmilligan on September 29, 2013, 11:03:37 PM
You should only use the fir file with the build it came with and then after the the install is complete update to the nighlies. The fir files were not intended to be used with the nightlies.

I download the nightly build, then I extract the zip and I can see 4 files: "ML", "autexec.bin", "INSTALL.pdf" and "UserGuide.pdf". I copy all the files in my low-level formated SD card but when I try to install, my camera says "to update you need a memory card with firmware". I realized that in old nightlies there was also the flie "1100D-105.fir" and I can install these nightlies.

If you still need a video tell me and I will upload it.

Hi,

I am very new but bery interested in magic lantern for my 1100d. I admire the work devs have done to enable these awesome features and I am forever gratefull. I really like the idea of recording raw video on these relatively cheap camera's and it is sad that it appears to be too locked out to do on this one. I did come across this chart that looks similar to the one on the raw section of the forum(perhaps a newer/older version) detailing what cameras do raw at what settings and in this chart the 1100d does appear to be working. (http://news.doddleme.com/equipment/magic-lantern-raw-how-canon-cameras-perform/)

Hi,

I am very new but bery interested in magic lantern for my 1100d. I admire the work devs have done to enable these awesome features and I am forever gratefull. I really like the idea of recording raw video on these relatively cheap camera's and it is sad that it appears to be too locked out to do on this one. I did come across this chart that looks similar to the one on the raw section of the forum(perhaps a newer/older version) detailing what cameras do raw at what settings and in this chart the 1100d does appear to be working. (http://news.doddleme.com/equipment/magic-lantern-raw-how-canon-cameras-perform/)

Hi I am a beginer in the magic lantern scene as well but I believe that that was a mistake indeed. But lets keep our fingers crossed  ;)

Hello,
I am quite the beginner in this but I have a question that I would greatly appreciate if someone would answer it. If I am not mistaken there is no manual exposure adjustment in the video mode. Would this ever be able to be changed? Is it possible that we one day may have a way to manually adjust exposure? An answer would be awesome.

PS I am willing to test any proto-builds so feel free to email me! :)

Hey there,
I'm pretty sure you can actually do so. What I did to accomplish this is to go to the ML menu, Expo tab, turn on Exp. Override and then changing the settings in the same tab. I hope this helps!

It was really hard to install Magic Lantern in my Canon T3. So here we go:
- Download the last build from Oct 21: Download (http://builds.magiclantern.fm/jenkins/job/1100D.105/90/artifact/platform/1100D.105/magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2013Oct21.1100D105.zip)
- Unzip it into the memory card.

- Download the build from Sep 17: Download (http://builds.magiclantern.fm/jenkins/job/1100D.105/33/artifact/platform/1100D.105/magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2013Sep17.1100D105.zip)
- Extract only the file "ML/data/FONTS.DAT" to the folder "ML/data" of your memory card.

- Download the Magic Lantern firmware: Download (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/issue-attachment/1150/hudson/magic-lantern/1333128527.7/1150/ml-1100d-105.fir)
- Copy it into the memory card's root.

- Insert the memory card on your cam and turn it on. Update your firmware.

Magic Lantern should install with no problems!

Okay, I got ML installed on my 1100d. The fonts thing didn't really want to work, so I sprinkled the fonts.dat in multiple places. I think putting it in the root did the job though.

Before being able to install ML, you need to format your card (low level) through your camera, reset camera functions and reset custom func while your setting is set on manual.

Rest worked completely fine. Thanks for that.

Now some time to play with ML ~

A much easier way to install ML for the first time is to simply
No need to mess with fonts.dat.

It will be back soon, thanks to dmilligan.
When it comes back, I will need everyone's help to keep it maintained and up to date. I do not have time to test every feature, but if you submit good bug reports and do good testing (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9516.0), it should be easy for me to fix issues and keep this port up to date.

The 1100D port seems to be quite stable atm (I've been just compiling it myself). I haven't had a crash in months, and all of the features I use regularly work as expected. I'm not aware of any enabled feature that doesn't work as advertised, but I also don't use every feature regularly which is why I need your help testing.

  • Download the RC3 (http://nanomad.magiclantern.fm/1100D/magiclantern-v2.3.1100D.RC3.zip) from the OP, and extract it to a clean (format in camera) SD card.
  • Run the firmware update procedure in the Canon menu, the ML fir will set the boot flag when you do this and you should get a green screen. Turn off camera and remove SD card.
  • Now update to the latest nightly by deleting all ML files on the card and replacing them with the most recent build.
No need to mess with fonts.dat.

Top of page -> User Guide -> F.A.Q.

Is the firmware reversible?
ML is *no* firmware!
Top of page -> User Guide -> F.A.Q.
The only change done to the camera is setting a bootflag and that is reversible but not for all cameras as of today.


If I wanted to go back to the original firmware?
Because it's no firmware but an additional software running on top of Canon's firmware: Yes

Is there a way to lock the exposure in the video mode? I seem to have some issues with it changing dramatically, like its trying to capture the blown out highlights and under exposed shadows while filming. Also, it seems like the manual aperture doesn't want to work for video mode. If I set it to f22 (using the kit lens) I can hear it swivel in and out but it doesn't stay in f22.

Yeah, that's a (general, I think) bug with (zoom?) kit lenses. The aperture doesn't stay put for some reason. You could always just set the aperture (SET -> DOF Preview) and partially untwist the lens, as it seems to be the only work-around.
Good luck.

That's what I was talking about, I set the Expo manually but sometimes (possibly when its too dark) it changes back and forth and I don't seem able to lock it with out setting it brighter or focusing the center away from that spot.

The scripts are called 'post scripts' because they are made to be run 'in post' on the computer. They cannot be run on camera, there is no support for in camera HDR creating. This script is a bash shell script meant to be run on a *nix operating system (mac or linux) and uses the open source program called enfuse to merge the photos. These scripts are mostly just for convenience to allow easier batch processing of HDR brackets in post.

Also, you should be using raw for HDR not jpeg, raw's already have way more information and DR in them without stacking. Simply using raw instead of jpg you may find covers the DR of your scene without the need to take extra shots.

Nice! What is it?

130mm with tracking mount.  I absolutely wanted tracking mount, and anything larger (scope size) was double the price.  It's an EQ2 mount with motor drive on the RA axis, and I think I should be able to remove the scope and attach the camera directly to the mount with wide angle too. 

I live in the country and have easy access to dark skies.  If I have my calculations right in stellarium, I should be able to take some wonderful photos.

I've never had tracking before, so sitting here twiddling my thumbs waiting for the postie to arrive so I can setup it up and become acclimatised.  It's windy and cloudy here atm, but I'll (hopefully) put something up in the photo section tomorrow. 

It's something I've wanted for a long time, and your photos were the last little bit of inspiration I needed to make it happen  :)

I just finished testing today's build. It's stable enough, but almost none of the new features work.


Keep rocking, guys. Given enough time, I have faith you'll turn it into a 1D X.

It should be alright; the camera will turn itself off when reaching critical temperature. (source: Canon's manual)

Haven't managed to enable the raw overlays in playback. Tried Canon's image review -> hold, tried ML's (already had set it like that, but it didn't hurt to try all permutations), neither would result in any RAW overlays. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, it's quite late here.
So I decided to see whether or not they're true RAW overlays in LV, by switching picture styles (cinestyle vs. a very high-contrast one) and the histogram definitely changed => not RAW. The zebras, I really can't tell, but they should work by the same principle.
Whatever should be RAW isn't on my end, or at least I can't make it work. They do, however, all state RAW RGB, if that's any help.

I kept toying with ETTR, set it to Always ON and it displayed this after taking an image without LV:

ETTR: next ISO 0 N/A (was ISO 0 N/A)

At least now it didn't affect my exposure for the worse.

The fix was committed to the repository minutes before you posted this message, so you need to wait for the next nightly build (IDK when this happens), or build yourself from source.

Many of the other things you report as not working I believe have something to do with the fact that many of these things have just reached the repository today, and so probably are not in the builds yet. ETTR and dual iso are working just fine for me, so I'd say you just need to wait a day and try again. I appreciate your eagerness to help though. You can always check the commit history (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/commits/all) and compare that to the hash or timestamp on the build.

Whatever should be RAW isn't on my end, or at least I can't make it work. They do, however, all state RAW RGB, if that's any help.
There is no raw data available for LV. The histogram and zebras fall back to YUV data. It would probably be helpful if there was at least a warning about this in the menu, but this is expected behavior.

I believe all you have to do is:
a) return 0 from can_use_raw_overlays_menu() on the LiveView photo branch if there's no CONFIG_RAW_LIVEVIEW.
b) add a meaningful message in menu_set_warning_raw (like raw is not working in LiveView on this camera).

This code will be used whenever there's something that requires raw support (assumming it calls menu_checkdep_raw from its MENU_UPDATE_FUNC).

OK, I grabbed today's build and toyed with it. dual_iso works very well, silent returns a linking error (probably was to be expected, based on previous discussions), auto ETTR still does the -5 EV thing and that's about it. Still no overlays in PLAY, but I did notice it being mentioned in the Help tab of ML.

Now, let's shoot people in the snow with dual_iso!

I'm afraid I don't have another camera, nor a decent phone, but it literally just goes like this:

LiveView.
I enable AutoETTR from the ML menu, set it to double half-shutter click.
I double-press the shutter halfway.
Message "ETTR..." appears in the top-left corner.
Exposure goes way down (-5.0), everything is underexposed.
Message "Expo limits reached" appears in the top-left corner.
(I get sad and manually expose to the right.)

Yeah, otherwise, in Always ON and Auto Snap it seems to be working just fine, when not in LV.
Strange thing now, every mode of ETTR pushes my exposure to +5 EV in LV.
Also, I see no warning about ETTR not working in LV. Bear in mind that I am using the precompiled nightly.

Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: dmilligan on February 01, 2014, 10:48:40 PM
I believe all you have to do is:
a) return 0 from can_use_raw_overlays_menu() on the LiveView photo branch if there's no CONFIG_RAW_LIVEVIEW.
b) add a meaningful message in menu_set_warning_raw (like raw is not working in LiveView on this camera).

This code will be used whenever there's something that requires raw support (assumming it calls menu_checkdep_raw from its MENU_UPDATE_FUNC).

The problems is more complicated than this and will require more significant refactoring to make the menu items logical in the situation that raw is not available in LV. Basically all the menu items are currently setup to assume that if raw is available at all, it is available in LV. We have the 1100D where this is not the case, and the menu items are extremely confusing even if I just add a warning here.

Here's what I mean:
The Histogram menu item will say:
Histogram       RAW RGB, Log, Dots

Even if I'm in LV where the histogram is not RAW, it is RAW during QR, so which histogram are we talking about? One of the histograms will be RAW and one won't. How do we convey this logically to the user? We can't say RAW histogram isn't working, it is working, sometimes...

I think this merits a complete rethink of the entire Overlay menu. Maybe there should be three separate overlay configurations: Movie, LV, and QR (maybe even a 4th MovieRaw). Currently the Overlay menu is very nonsensical for anyone who is not extremely familiar with how it works, in terms of what settings apply in what particular situations.

I also don't think there's any particular reason to even give the user the choice of what type (RAW vs. YUV) of overlay to use. The particular situation totally determines the type that should be used:
h264? - always use YUV overlays
raw_rec/mlv? - always use raw overlays
photo?
  picture_quality_raw? - use raw if available, otherwise warn that YUV is being used instead
  picture_qualtiy_jpeg? - always use YUV

thoughts?

Looks like Nano did half of the job, so it should work as I expect it to (which is basically exactly as you described).

So, in LiveView, histogram should print RAW only if the LiveView histogram is RAW. In photo mode, it should print RAW only if the QR histogram is RAW.

And this is auto-chosen based on picture quality.

Movie:
- H264 => YUV histogram.
- Some sort of raw recording => RAW histogram.

Photo:
- in LiveView, if pic quality is set to some sort of RAW => RAW histogram (if there is backend support), otherwise YUV
- in QR, if pic qualty is set to pure RAW (the only setting that works on all cameras), you get RAW overlays

So, with default settings, it tries to use RAW overlays whenever it makes sense. Try them on 60D, it should work like this.

The option for zebra (photo vs always) is there for speed reasons. Raw zebras are slow.

Adding a bunch of new menus doesn't sound like simplifying things to me.

With global draw off for example, it won't work (because it won't be able to request the raw mode - it will give up before trying).

Hiding the option from the menu should be enough (only show auto snap and always on).

in 'always on' ettr still tries to run when you enter LV (and completely screws all the settings) even if raw data is not available, that is the bug. there's no separate option for 'only after you take a pic'. so basically until this is fixed you can't use ettr for QR and still use LV, i.e. I should still be able to use LV and have ettr work from QR data after the pic is taken, but I can't because ettr still tries to run

perhaps this is the problem

    int corr = auto_ettr_get_correction();
    raw_lv_release();

the return value of raw_lv_request() is not actually checked by ettr

should it be:
Code: [Select]
    if(!raw_lv_request()) return;
    int corr = auto_ettr_get_correction();
    raw_lv_release();

Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on February 03, 2014, 07:05:29 AM
How this works: you are comparing two function pointers. You get the warning because the two functions have different prototypes, but since ret_0 does nothing, there are no side effects. The ABI takes care about compatibility.

You could cast the two pointers to thunk or void* or intptr_t for example, to get rid of the warning.

I'm tempted to write "if (&raw_lv_request == &ret_0)". It's the same thing for some historical reasons, but I feel it's a little more explicit (it's more obvious that you are comparing two function pointers).
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: dmilligan on February 03, 2014, 01:17:23 PM
I'd agree &raw_lv_request == &ret_0 seems more correct at least to me (I actually have to write some in C89 at work and this would be the syntax I'm used to), but when I tried it, it gave the same warning, so I wasn't sure what was going on. I didn't realize the functions had different prototypes. I guess then the most correct thing to do would be define a ret_void and use that instead of ret_0 or make raw_lv_request return something.

(I was actually more curios how the 'weak' stuff is implemented. How does it actually switch the symbol references dynamically like that, it's pretty cool and I didn't realize you could do it in C. I've done similar stuff but only in higher level languages)

Hi. I've been a long-time user of ML for the 1100D. Got a new camera and have been using that instead, but now I'm back on the 1100D.

My problem is, I can't seem to get ML on my 1100D anymore. I've followed the instructions as per http://wiki.magiclantern.fm/install to a tee, but I can't use the in-camera "Firmware Update" feature, as I'm lacking a firmware file.

I tried digging up an old .fir file from the "magiclantern-v2.3.1100D.RC3.zip", but when installing then, the install-process informed me that "fonts.dat" was missing.

I'm at a loss. Do you have any ideas on how to proceed?

In any case, thank your for the tremendous work you've put into maintaining this program. It is very much appreciated.

Don't mix the old fir file with the new build, use it with the build it came with, then update to the nightlies by simply copying over the new files to the card.

A much easier way to install ML for the first time is to simply
  • Download the RC3 (http://nanomad.magiclantern.fm/1100D/magiclantern-v2.3.1100D.RC3.zip) from the OP, and extract it to a clean (format in camera) SD card.
  • Run the firmware update procedure in the Canon menu, the ML fir will set the boot flag when you do this and you should get a green screen. Turn off camera and remove SD card.
  • Now update to the latest nightly by deleting all ML files on the card and replacing them with the most recent build.
No need to mess with fonts.dat.

Yes, when the raw function is developed, you will be able to combine it with FPS override and create raw timelapse (at 640p only I believe).
Anyway you can do that now but without having raw, just use the FPS override function and you can go down to 0.2 fps= frame each five seconds, with a five second shutter too if you want. But the results are of course 1280/720 frames, which I found very sufficient quality for video.
(PS: cool tip, use 35fps in FPS override and it gives quite good slowmotion when rendered to 24p!)

Hi everyone,

I am new here, but have been a ML Nightly Builds tester for about 2 weeks now (yup, still a noob). Anyway, does anyone else experience a screen freeze situation in Live view while using movie mode on ML?

I would also like to thank everybody who have participated in this project, especially the hard working developers! Count me in for testing! ;)

Had this error: overflow[54575/54544] shoot_malloc(53kb) at module c:357, task module

Solved it by deactivating some modules and just leaving the double_iso module ON.

I can also see a white pixel flickering in the middle while watching the movie :|

But still, in movie mode, when I turn off the camera the screen freezes where I was pointing... :| Have to take battery out and put it in again :|

When I benchmark the memory I get a "malloc error :( " message ... Is it my SD card?

shoot_malloc(16mb|TMP|DMA) failed at debug c:812, run_test
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on February 18, 2014, 08:22:45 AM
Can you post the list of modules that when enabled make the camera crash? I think it's just due to the memory on the 1100D being so low but it's worth double checking
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: mad.eos on February 18, 2014, 09:22:36 AM
Thanks Nanomad,
But even with NO modules loaded as I tried the benchmark after resetting ml, it still gives me this error and then screen crash while in video mode. Picture mode is fine, I can have about 5 modules on. What is malloc anyway? If the 1100d has low memory, can't we use the SD card for cache? Maybe I'm speaking nonsense, just putting it out there ;-)

Finding the problem and fixing it. You can help find it.

Reset all canon settings, custom function settings, and ML settings (and disable all modules). Does it still happen? If not, then you should be able to narrow it down to a spefic set of settings and/or modules that are causing it. Start enabling things one by one until it happens. Please be as specific as you can, some small thing that you think is too insignificant to mention could be just the clue that a dev needed to diagnose/solve the problem.

If it still crashes with everything reset, try older builds and see if you can find one where this doesn't happen and then try to narrow it down to a specific build (use binary search).
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: mad.eos on February 18, 2014, 01:48:44 PM
Okay!

Thanks once more, I'll try later on resetting ALL Canon and ML settings. Yesterday I just tried to reset the ML setting and the problem persisted. As I said, this only happens in Movie Mode.  ::)

Found something kinda interssting. Shoot_malloc is the only one with 0 blocks allocated.  Don't know if this helps or if it's normal. I've reset all settings and even uninstalled ml and installed again,  still persists, am I the only one?  ::)

While driving to work today, (as always I'm wonder about enoumerous things...) I was wondering...

Is it possible CPU/MEM wise for our 1100D (T3) to process a 3 to 6 Frame HDR Picture Automatically via some module? Am I speaking some impossible nonsense or... Is it really possible?

Example: Select module_autohdr
Choose from 3 to 6 Exposure intervals, Point, Shoot and Process and Voilá! A HDR RAW!  :D

If I remember correctly, someone already asked this and the answer was something in the lines of: "we could, but we won't, because it's something you can do in post(-processing)"

However, anyone is free to write any module, so someone ought to get tired of manually creating HDRs.

That was for MAKING an HDR file. The auto-HDR sequence shooter (with frame number decider) already exists :D.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on February 19, 2014, 05:16:11 PM
You could implement the ZeroNoise algorithm, which is really easy (simply take the pixel from the brightest shot as long as it's not clipped). I expect it would take around 30 seconds or so on the camera (based on raw_diag processing times).

Or you could just batch-process with CeroNoice: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9581
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: mad.eos on February 19, 2014, 05:42:14 PM
The main idea is to have a preview of the HDR Picture in the field without going later on, on the PC and Post-Process it. I don't mind doing PP, it's just to not have the kind of situation that you get home from a photo shoot, after PP you see one or two pictures and go "Damnn... I Should of..."

You guys know what I mean, I don't want to be lazy, just precise! ;)

Do you guys also notice a white pixel flashing in video mode using the CBR method?  :-\

Not really.  Raw histograms/zebras provide all of the exposure feedback needed.  These don't lie.  JPG based rendering on the LCD only looks pretty, it adds nothing useful with respect to exposure.

The highlight exposure is super easy, ETTR with raw based exposure feedback
The shadow exposure is simply a matter of increasing exposure 4 EV.

Okay then, in an attempt of being some what productive, I can say that the Nightly build from February 1st down, doesn't freeze anymore. So, these problems may occur on more recent Nightlys! I'm staying with this one for the time being, startup even seems snappier and the whole "messing around" seems more stable!  :)

Interesting facts:
.shoot_malloc now has 1 block and detects memory
.benchmark still shows shoot_malloc error (but who cares now that it won't hang anymore? still a fact though)
.screenshot works (yeeey)
.no freezes when I turn the camera off (got so happy I jumped up and "woohooed!")
.movie mode that I used was CBR @ 1.7x with a Cinema "effect" FPS @ 23.976  ;D
Video test can be viewed here:

I'll try tomorrow's build. So far, both the 22nd and 21st have the same problems. (maybe others as well, but I have only tried these 2 so far). To my knowledge, the last one that worked exceptionally was the Feb14th one.

EDIT: it hangs when I'm in the Canon menu as well as when there's some overlay from ML (either a notification like "module loading was skipped due to etc." or the usual overlays in LiveView, although in LV, when you turn off the camera, the screen will hang, but the mirror will go back down).

Post by: mad.eos on February 22, 2014, 09:33:06 PM
Yup! Same with me, exactly the same... The shoot_malloc on these later builds don't have any data allocated, don't know if this helps but it's one of the ways I can promptly detect that it's going to hang.

Post by: mad.eos on February 23, 2014, 01:40:24 AM
Tried the latest build and here are my conclusions:

Good news:
shoot_malloc already has memory allocated, don't know if it's associated in any way but hey... It doesn't freeze anymore when we shut down the camera!

Bad news:
Screenshot does freeze the camera (hence the picture taken with my phone).
Memory benchmark still gives the "malloc error :("

Screenshots and benchmarks are requesting more memory than you actually have on the camera.

So, as long as the error is handled nicely (without crash), don't worry about them. Look for crashes in normal usage (when you take photos, record videos, review them, browse menus and so on).

Screenshot is Canon code, so it's not aware of the memory backend. The only solutions are:

1) use shoot_malloc for everything (which is not exactly ideal, because when changing some stuff in Canon menu, they expect shoot_malloc to be 100% free)

Feb23rd works great for me.
Just noticed the QuickReview overlays and I have to ask, are they really RAW in the review stage?

Maybe offtopic, but I thought I should let you know, yesterday's build hung while entering stand-by and the LED turned on and remained that way. All because of one "if()" regarding memory?

If the histogram has the EV bars on it, and slides with exposure without changing its shape, it's raw.

If not, it's YUV.

Hi, i'm new here. First of all, great job!!

When I try to record at 60 fps, I put this value in Movie Menu in override in ML. It takes the value, but when I make the video, it is at 30 fps (maximum). Nothing happens. :( I've checked this with After Effects and it shows 30 fps.

Can I record at 60 fps? What values I need change?

PS: sorry for my English

1100D cannot do 60fps (FPS override is really only for making the FPS lower)

The highest one you can find that doesn't cause recording to stop. Use a high ISO and a lot of movement to test this.

Hi! Does anyone else experience the following bug with AETTR? Whenever i try to take a picture with AETTR the Shutter Speed decreases to the point when the picture is almost black and then it says " Expo limits reached". I tried different scenarios..some with low, high dynamic range, some in dark rooms or bright daylight.
What is it i'm doing wrong?

So far, autoETTR is NOT yet supported in LiveView, because we're still lacking LV RAW support. However, you can do just that by using either of the first 2 modes (always and autosnap, NOT during LiveView): take a RAW pic and then the exposure will be automatically set as far as it should be to the right, after an "offline" analysis is done on the previously-taken image.

Well, it's just a tiny step towards a solid code base.

I chose 1100D for testing this one because it was one of the most troublesome regarding screenshot (lack of memory, low resolution, pixels not square), but all other cameras will benefit from it.

Can you post an image from LiveView focused on some fine print? (just curious to see how it handles the lower resolution)

There was a fair amount of aliasing when I tried it (at work, so I can't upload anything for you ATM), I wasn't sure if it was just the camera's LV feed or not (it's a lot easier to see the effect on my huge on my computer screen than on that tiny camera screen)
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on March 04, 2014, 06:37:02 PM
The LiveView buffer on 1100D is 720x240, and the screenshot code upsamples it to 720x480.

Sure, I could have used the HD buffer, but this one is just a feature useful mostly for debugging, research and tutorials (so I don't see the point in doing extra effort for squeezing more resolution).

That usually happens when you tamper with brightness/contrast in the Display tab.

Ok, then, I've had this bug since around october 2012, when I got my first nightly.

Everything is when using LiveView, as suggested by the name of each feature:

... but at least LV saturation and display gain work as expected.

(http://i.imgur.com/eNm80Su.jpg)

To what I can observe, it seems only the green channel is affected by these changes. If you mix equal parts of brightness and contrast adjustment, the image tends to balance itself out, color-wise.

EDIT: I tried taking a screenshot, but it crashed (apparently this happens in LV) and the PPM that resulted didn't have any changes in color/contrast/brightness, like the screenshot was taken pre-effect.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: Ebrahim Saadawi on March 06, 2014, 04:52:34 PM
Yes the contrast and brightness features don't work since first build ever made (colors shift just like previous post) Though Digic Peaking works in the "slightly sharper" setting, and Saturation works in all settings.

Everythink seems to work (But why are Screenshots taken as .ppm??)

So, uhm, could anyone give me a crash course in ML? There are some very interesting features, like ETTR and Dual ISO, but i seems that this is a little bit... complicate. Are there some tutorials or so I can use?

Thanks. Great work.

Post by: dmilligan on March 13, 2014, 09:00:19 PM
If there's news you'll read about it here, but the absolute best you can hope for even if we do get it working is a couple of seconds of low resolution. The very small buffer and very low write speed makes recording raw quite impractical on this camera. The real practical uses of the raw buffer would be silent pictures and ETTR/Raw overlays in LV

1100D will be recording raw video. 640p @ 30 fps, but it's raw video nonetheless, right? 

That was what he wrote like 1month ago...so I was just wonderin about the release.

So you don't think the 1100D will record raw video continously?
And what exactly is silent pictures, does this mean raw video without audio?

http://magiclantern.wikia.com/wiki/Unified/UserGuide#silent-pictures

As for actual RAW video, I don't think it generally records sound. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I know, it's a series of DNG files, written very quickly on the camera, right up to the moment when the buffer gets full. Recording sound as well will fill up the buffer prematurely, so it's probably disabled.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: Audionut on March 15, 2014, 06:44:21 AM
Silent pictures are single frame captures.  Think photos but captured with the LV buffer, so no shutter actuation is needed.

Nothing to do with video.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on March 17, 2014, 01:17:49 AM
I think it eventually will. It's just a matter of time for someone to catch up with the CONFIG_EDMAC_RAW_SLURP bits for LV mode.

There are two issues right now.
 1.  It's not easy for a developer to grab the raw frame size as the 1100D likes to crash as soon as you enter LV with "old method" for RAW on. Easily solved by turning FPS override on
 2. We can't use the DEFAULT_RAW_BUFFER allocated by canon as it seems to be used for something else. Right now ML code expects the opposite so one should write a routine to allocate a buffer to write to (and free it when not needed anymore)

Found a bug while testing Trap Focus: when the focus indicators light up, the camera takes 3 pictures. I've tried both modes, with the C-Fn AF button configuration at default and otherwise.
HDR bracketing is off (even tried to set the number of frames to 2, just in case), the drive mode is single.

I'm using the 18Feb2014 build, but I haven't used this feature in a long time, so I don't know when the bug appeared.

edit: once in a while, it just takes 2 pictures.
:-X

Forgot I had set Pics at once to exactly 3 (Shoot tab, Shoot preferences).

Post by: Windoze321 on March 21, 2014, 08:29:57 AM
Huge request that I'm hoping you'd implement, although I'm not sure how many people would use it.  I'm thinking the screenshot function would be fine for this, but if it could be worked into video, that would be cool, too.  I see I can take a screenshot of LV and it even works at 10x!!  You have no idea how awesome this is to me and I thank you for it!  I'm trying to get good pictures of Saturn, but to do that, you really need to take many photos and stack them.  Is there any way that we could have the screenshot feature with an added option to take as many pics as we want?  The 10 second timer is a must for the 1st picture, but after that, they can be back to back.  Up to 1000 would be ideal.  I can easily see me doing 100's at a time like this.  The attached image is what I got from stacking just 4 images in this manner.  It's hard to push all the buttons and also have time for the camera/scope to stop shaking in 10 seconds, but with up to 1000 pics, by the time the 1st few were complete, all shaking from the telescope would be dampened out and the majority would be useable. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152312439213701&set=a.143037638700.112356.566973700&type=1&theater (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152312439213701&set=a.143037638700.112356.566973700&type=1&theater)

You can use the built in Magic Lantern intervalometer but you will have some mirror shake.

The proper alternative would be using raw silent pictures but they are currently not supported on the 1100D. I can hack a module to do 422 as we used to if there's interest
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on March 21, 2014, 08:40:08 AM
I bet hacking a 422 module will take longer than doing a malloc/free for the raw backend, and also the old 422 code has major problems with vsync (raw silent pics have it solved, unless you are really unlucky to get pink frames).
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3

Post by: nanomad on March 21, 2014, 08:49:17 AM
Yes it was directed at you. The thing is, I don't see what advantage taking pictures at 10x would give you. If anything, the CR2 and jpeg offers more resolution and bit depth. You can still frame and focus at 10x then batch crop everything in post production. A quick shell script or a photoshop action will suffice.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: Windoze321 on March 21, 2014, 08:58:33 AM
The pictures I get doing it this way (with 10x ) are actually viewable.  When I take a regular picture, yes, it's higher resolution, but it's so small (even when cropped and shown at 100%) you can't tell what it is. 
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: nanomad on March 21, 2014, 09:01:34 AM
I see, that's because the live view is showing a cropped and upscaled image.

Could you post a 10x bmp along with a jpeg shot of the same scene?
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: Windoze321 on March 21, 2014, 09:16:48 AM
I'll try to do that in a bit.  The link I posted above is the LV shot.  I also forgot that I'm using a Barlow right now, and that makes it much bigger.  Maybe the regular pics will end up being good enough.  I'm in the process of taking a few dozen pics with 12s in-between, so it will take a few, but I'll post it asap.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: Windoze321 on March 21, 2014, 10:10:21 AM
Not sure how to upload actual photos, but here's the one taken normally without liveview.  This is a stack of 20 pics.  If you click it to scroll to the next image, you'll see the Liveview image at 10x.  When I upscale the regular one to match the same approximate size, the regular one starts to pixelate. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152312620288701&set=a.143037638700.112356.566973700&type=1&theater (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152312620288701&set=a.143037638700.112356.566973700&type=1&theater)

So that's 20 pics stacked Vs. 4 stacked.  Looking at a single frame of each of the pics (untouched and unstacked @ 100%) on my PC, the 10X is about 2.5x the size of the of the regular pic.  (Of course we're only talking about Saturn itself, not the actual picture size.)  So it is something I'd like to dabble with.  I saw modules somewhere where someone has it taking a screenshot after every push of the button, so maybe an add-on or something like that instead of playing with the source?  It's not a must, but it could be something nice if enough are stacked.  Hard to tell at this point.

You can either trust us or not. You don't see some angry guy spamming the forum with multiple accounts after having his camera bricked, so I'd say it's safe to run it.
Speaking of which, try force yourself into going through the entire thread before running ML, to get an idea of what happened with our build. Also, reading the rules and FAQ (http://www.magiclantern.fm/faq.html) should help clear some stuff up.

Quite frankly dude you're not loosing much if your 1100d breaks. But it wont! Read the Magic Lantern Website before making posts about this! Magic Lantern only exists on your sd card and it bootstraps to run in the background on the normal firmware. As long as you don't do anything stupid in the developer options you will be fine!

Hi,

I am looking for SPOT Metering in 1100D for Night Sky-Star photography.I know ML has Spot metering.
Is there a way to fix to x% and continue shooting?
Suggest me please. ::)

I think he means a Unified/"Official" version, like with the 5D and all those that are fully supported. I'm no developer, but I doubt that will happen anytime soon, mainly because of the limitations this camera has and the bugs that are caused by said limitations/differences.

Offtopic, but it's been driving me insane: whenever I shoot in LiveView, I hear a short, mechanical, friction-ridden sound at the beginning of the exposure, from within the camera (which is not the mirror going up, obviously). Up until now I thought it was the shutter, resetting the sensor or something, but I took the lens out and repeated the experiment. The shutter does not come down, but the sound is present. It is not produced by the speaker. Can anybody please tell me what it is? It's keeping me up at night since I can't explain its existence. Thanks.

EDIT: apparently, the shutter "resets" the sensor, which means the shutter travels right at the beginning of the exposure.

Hi,

ml works on Toshiba Wifi Card "FlashAir"?

Hi. I think it should work since it is not 64gb. But don't quote me on that. If you had a 64gb version or for that matter I would suggest using the eos card tool for magic lantern.  http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/EOScard . It is chdk but i think the setting allow you to flash ml too.

Completely off-topic, but I figure someone might want to look up this info, let it be found on a 1100D forum:
I opened up my focusing screen ensemble. Just a heads-up for anyone who ventures there, IT (the focusing screen) WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE REPLACED, so make sure you understand the risks.

You clearly didn't do a search of the forum. The feature was removed and the first dozen or so search results for "bulb ramping" lead to posts that indicate this.

You have two alternatives:
AutoETTR (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5705.0) for automatic ramping and deflicker with this (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=8850.0) or this (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=10496.0)
adv_int.mo (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=8431) for manual ramping

or a combination of the two

I believe this (http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/features) is the closest thing to your request.

Almost all changes are to common source files or modules. These changes will also affect the 1100D. The only reason they wouldn't is if they were changes to features that are disabled in the 1100D build, or if they are changes in modules you don't use. For modules, the commit comment typically begins with the module name. For disabled features, there is no automatic way of figuring this out. You'd have to inspect the source code and the actual changes.

I own both an 1100D and a 650D and have latest working nightly builds of ML for both.  I use them frequently, even did a short time lapse using the 1100D while out shooting a sunset on Oregon Coast.  Appreciate all the work that people put into developing Magic Lantern!  I know many Canon users that are suddenly taking an interest in the features the little 1100D does that their pro bodies do not.

Hello everybody,

I would first like to thank you for the development of Magic Lantern which is really great. I would have a question for you, I would be interested in using PicoC to run scripts on a Canon 1100D, and if I understand correctly, PicoC is no longer available in the Nighly builds. Would you have a link to a previous version which supports PicoC ? That would be very helpful to me. When I click "Show Older Builds", the earliest build available is "Date: 2014-02-13 19:40:35 +0000", and I don't think that PicoC is available since this date.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Cedric

Here's the experimental branch, if anybody feels like coding: https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/branch/allocate-raw-lv-buffer

If you can compile ML, you can try writing down the resolutions, run some tests, take a silent picture, check whether it can record and so on.

It seems to touch some other core areas though (because 1100D doesn't have fixed LV buffer addresses, like most other cameras), so I think it's a good idea to finish this one first: https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/branch/new-lv-buffer-detection

The resolution in the photo modes is 1056x704 , in movie mode it is 1280x720.
I also tried diffrent photo sizes (S2,S3,L) and also RAW.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/xg5s26pln4b62td/dumping.zip

It was freezing in all photo modes and in movie mode if I didnt start recording before trying to dump.
It wasnt freezing when zoomed in.

Played around - first tests.
(RAW video, no MLV)

-768x400 continous
-864x450 recorded 83 frames (second run did 245 frames ???)
-960x500 recorded 75 frames
...

Card I used was Lexar (Premium Series) 32GB 200x (Class 10).
Maybe you can get better resolution with faster card...

Notice: When I turn on camera and record directly, sometimes 768x400 mode crashes after some frames. I think the problem is that the SD card is not warm enough....

So overall I can say it's nice play around, but nothing I can work with right now...maybe with some faster SD cards  ;)

But still...NICE JOB! Thanks to the developers :)

-> UPDATE: RAW VIDEO (MLV) works on the 1100D ! You just got to take "Test mode" OFF, it even plays back the mlv files! Can record 960x500 continuous with fps override changed to 20fps...
again: maybe my card is too slow, I think you should get 960x540 24fps continous recording, because the 1100D has the same write speed as the 60D/600D/550D/500D...right?

Nice!

Things to fix:
- find skip_left and skip_top in raw.c (take a silent picture - not video - and count the pixels in the black borders) - this will also fix the weird colors
- hack error: lookup the context in the source code, then follow this tutorial to find it: www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=12177
- check the Free Memory dialog for errors (some crashes might be buffer overflows)
- other error messages: document them properly, so I can give further advice

There are no reports of anyone being injured by ML :P

There are plenty of bugs, but they are very unlikely to permanently damage your camera. There is still a chance, and there will always be a chance, nothing is going to change about that.

I'd say the likelihood of damaging your camera has much more to do with your technical knowledge, critical thinking, and ability to read and follow instructions, than anything to do with how stable ML is, or how many bugs there are.

Feature request: would it be possible to assign buttons to change the exposure settings without opening the menu? Like 550/600/60Ds.

Up and down for ISO, dial for shutter, AV button + dial for aperture, that would be killer!

How do you make it work? I downloaded the latest build and there's no Raw module... Would love to try it and help developing this

This is heavily compressed for the web and the difference is even much bigger and artefact-free but here:

H.264 720p

(http://i.imgur.com/hb9EyMW.jpg)

Raw 540p

(http://i.imgur.com/ff3Orix.jpg)

The image is taking a HUGE leap on the 1100D, much much more detail, extremely fine noise structure, and of course very thick colour palette (14 bit) for grading to the point of being able to change WB in post!

Works very well with Fast cards at that resolution,

---Edit:

Another low-light test:

H.264 at 6400 ISO 

(http://i.imgur.com/5CYZxCL.jpg)

Raw at 6400 ISO (@540p)

(http://i.imgur.com/zM1Esud.jpg)

As you can see, much higher detail, finer grain structure, and more accurate color palette

From my test, the 1100D's low pixel count at 12, with large APS-C sensor, gives it an edge over the 600/700D in terms of low-light.

Apperture size doesn't change in video mode during Exposure override when the value is changed, it's adjusting itself when it's changed from the lowest F number. Am I doing anything wrong or it's a bug ?

It's a bug available only while using zoom lenses[citation needed]. It will work fine on a fixed-focal length lens.

EDIT: as corrected below, the problem is with the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 III and with the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II so far.

Will for me aperture control works perfectly with:
-Canon 50mm F/1.8 II
-Canon 85mm F/1.8
-Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 APO zoom
-Sigma 10-20mm F4.5-5.6 zoom

Doesn't work with:
-Canon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 III non-IS

I'll get the newer regular IS II (non stm) version tomorrow so we'll see how it does with that one.

I have the IS II version and it doesn't work. It's the lens specs themselves.

dmilligan (at least) once explained what's the deal with it and why it won't work with this focal length range and aperture range setup. It simply had something to do with ML's values not syncing with the minimum F-numbers at each end of the focal length range.

Had to dig my 18-55 out of the dumpster to confirm this one. Doesn't work in video or photo LV. This isn't exactly a priority for me, I don't record video and never use the kit lens.

Hope I've been of some help.


tl;dr: there are plenty of bugs, but the camera is very much alive, with no sign of being bricked; AETTR works like a charm and I quite dig the RAW histogram and zebras(which are more like false colours)

Confirmed. Doesn't work with either the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 III or 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II.

I actually love the kit lens as an 18mm f/3.5 wide angle prime. It's the only wide angle option at that budget.

You can still use it. It's actually not that much of a problem as I use it wide-open all the time anyway and adjust exposure with ISO and Shutter angle and Variable ND.

Hi guys,

I am new to ML, and would like to try it on my 1100D, but I am not sure about HOW to install, since the directions are given to V 2.3, and the 1100D uses V 1.05. I am really sorry if there is another place I should be asking this, but I could not find any up-to-date discussion about this.
I believe I only need to format my card, extract ML there and turn on my camera, is it so?

Thanks,

Caio

V 2.3 is refers to the Magic Lantern version, not the camera firmware version (1.0.5).
To download Magic Lantern for the 1100D, go to http://magiclantern.fm/downloads.html (http://magiclantern.fm/downloads.html), scroll down to Nightly Builds (No stable version is availible for the 1100D yet) read the text and click the "Browse Nightly Builds" button, select 1100D.105 (1100D with firmware version 1.0.5) and download.
Once it is done click this link: http://wiki.magiclantern.fm/install (http://wiki.magiclantern.fm/install) scroll down to "First install guide" and follow step 1 and 2.
Hope it helps!

Did you install the t3i version? Take notice all the talk and files throughout this thread is about the T3, not the T3i.

In the latest builds, I am not able to format the memory cards in-camera anymore. When done, the magic lantern restoration process freezes at "writing bootflags", and you have to remove the battery, lose magic lantern until installing the fir. File and upgrading the firmware again.

I apologize if this isn't the place and I have literally no knowledge on how magic lantern is created- so I unfortunately cannot contribute to the code. However, I was wondering if it is possible to add 1080p recording capabilities to the 1100d with maybe a lower bitrate? I know this seems very far fetched and it probably has something to do with the capabilities of the sensor itself- but I know the 50d cannot originally record any video at all, however, magic lantern allows you to record 1080p video (although it is very buggy and has no audio). Thanks for reading this.

note: I'm not begging for someone to add the feature. I'm just wondering if its possible at all.

Format card using a cardreader, insert card into cam, format it again. Download latest nightly build. Copy extracted contents to card's root (cardreader again). Insert card into cam, run firmware update and wait until timeout occurs.

"[...] Uninstalling Magic Lantern

Don't just delete the Magic Lantern files from the card! If you do, the camera will freeze at startup and you'll have to take the battery out.

Uninstalling ML from one card

    Format that card from the camera (select this option: Format card, remove Magic Lantern) and reboot. Your camera will load the original firmware when you use that card.

Uninstalling ML from the camera

    With a Magic Lantern card, launch the Firmware Update process and follow the instructions on-screen.

From what I understand, he spliced it. My guess is that instead of using the embedded microphone, he rewired the circuitry (2 wires, one cold, one hot) into a mono input, in which he can plug a microphone.

to make the card bootable, i used macboot (http://www.zenoshrdlu.com/macboot/macboot.html (http://www.zenoshrdlu.com/macboot/macboot.html)) and it's macbootcommand script, as described on their site. I added the magicLantern files to the card, then ran the update firmware process on the camera.

now when I hit the Av+/- button, I get all the bad-ass stuff, like time-lapse, and crazy stuff I don't yet understand.

I've just tried the last build for our camera. (Wanted to try dualISO).
DualISO - works fine, the previous build was somehow slower on my camera. This build is ok, BUT: using the motion detect made some trouble. It works great but it didn't let me return from liveView to normal view, after pushing the LV button it exited the LV and after a second returned to it. Turning off the camera worked. But that's the issue I had.. I'm very thankful for your work guys! If ML used Python I would try to help :)

Don't worry, it's been occasionally doing that since at least 2013 with no ill effects.

hey guys i'm new to magic lantern and DSLRs in general just wondering why my videos are coming out dark.  I have great lighting my settings are 24 fps, 50 shutter speed, iso 640, and aperture 3.5 (18-55mm kit lens). I'm not sure whats going on bc when I shot a test video with my iphone its perfect. Is there a feature I need to enable somewhere.

Increase your exposure parameters or get brighter lights

Thanks once I increased the ISO to 1600 it was good. I probably need a better lens to utilize the settings I was trying to film at.

Hey guys, i recently installed ML on my 1100D, first day everything was working fine and no problems. Yesterday, when i turned the camera off, the red light kept blinking, when the camera was off. It stopped when i took out the SD card. Is there any problem with this or can i just keep the SD card in it? I've read that a blinking red light meant that the SD card was busy (or something like that) when the camera is on. But mine even keeps blinking when the camera it shut down.

I also switched from video to M mode, to take pictures yesterday, but the shutter wouldn't open, and there was no liveview on. It was like it was in video mode, except i saw nothing on the screen (only the information about settings you always have when you press Q when in manual mode). After pulling the battery, the shutter went up again and i could take pictures. I haven't had this before and this was the only time i had it. Are these problems known or is it something new?

Thanks!

Hi,

Not sure if this is the best place to post this but feel free to correct me!

I've been using ML for almost a month now, but it has been the most enjoyable month of using my T3 ever.

However, I was wondering if a new feature could be implemented? I think focus limiting would be extremely useful. The best it could possibly be is to have two focus limits, a near and a far, so the focus would only bounce around between the two points.

I'm saying this because I recently just started using it for bird shots, by leaving it right up close to a bird feeder and setting it to motion detect. I get a lot of cool shots, but the focus is often off, even shooting at f/11. If I could set the focus limits to either (or maybe both) just past the feeder and just in front, I could leave AF on for the shots.

Sample shot I've taken using this method: http://imgur.com/FEbBz5t

This would be so cool if you could do this!

We don't know how to control Canon AF algorithms. Most of the AF stuff is on a separate chip that we have no control over.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: ayy_macaroni on March 26, 2015, 01:35:11 AM
Cool.
Just out of curiosity, how then do you control the focus for focus racking and stacking?

I've noticed something fishy in the FPS override implementation. Can you help me check it?

1) With FPS override turned off, open the FPS submenu, enable the Advanced mode and write down the two timer values. Repeat for all video modes, and also for photo mode and 5x zoom.

2) Set FPS override to 35 and try all video modes. Write down timer values and make sure the image is normal.

Title: RAW zebras and histograms
Post by: 47Crows on May 25, 2015, 05:43:10 PM
(currently on the magiclantern-Nightly.2015May03.1100D105 build)
Has anyone tried RAW zebras/histograms lately?

I'm fairly sure I've seen them work on the 1100, but they seem to have stopped working at some point, since all I see are normal zebras(fast Luma-style over and underexposure red-blue patterns)/histograms (no ETTR hint, no EV bars), both in LiveView and image review. I am positive they are set to their RAW mode.

Also, screenshots might not be saving properly, since not IrfanView, nor GIMP can open .PPMs generated by the camera anymore. The header seems to be missing; here's the screenshot (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bx1Bmq9idHp1YURvSUw4OFE1dUE/view?usp=sharing), anyway.


Edit: According to dmilligan, we'll just wait for round 2 of RAW testing when the time's right.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: dmilligan on May 26, 2015, 03:10:35 AM
Raw data in LV is disabled in the nightly build branch so histogram/zebras revert to YUV. It is working in another branch that hasn't been merged (and requires some manual work to merge it). Raw data is available in QR though, so you should see raw histogram and zebras there.

I've managed to take LV raw DNGs using the other branch (as well as FRSP), and the zebras and histogram work, but the EDMAC stuff for raw video I haven't managed to get working (I always get weird garbage data and/or crashes when I try), some of that is a little beyond my current level of knowledge.

Strange!
One time in M mode in „FPS override“ menu I was seeing „Rolling Shutter“: 214748364.7 us, what is 2147483647 (2**31-1) with point.

One time it was impossible to go into ML menu from „live view", without switching off camera.
When I was trying to do video (1280x720 – 25) with FPS override to 35 it was every time video withoud sound.

Post by: Myxir on July 19, 2015, 12:11:37 AM
Hey.
Yup, ML worked again after that.
all-clear: The C.FN #7 was set to set AE/AF. I did not do that. WTF...

But now my AF is broken. I cannot use Af in PASM modes. In all other modes it works.
It seems like the "Is in focus"-bit is set to "yes" all the time. With my 40mm STM I can use the MF even when the AF is activated and did not hit. I've tried different lenses, removing the SD card and the battery. I've installed 1.05 stock from canon.com com but it did not help.

I repeat: AF _does not_ work for me, even _without_ Magic Lantern on the SD card! o.O :(

Post by: dmilligan on July 19, 2015, 02:18:42 AM
A constant that is used for FPS override is wrong, so a1ex simply deleted the constant, that caused the compiler to fail b/c something it expects to have a value, doesn't. Rather than just disabling FPS override altogether, he intentionally allowed the build to fail, the idea being to encourage others to fix the problem. I normally try to fix stuff like this, but this particular issue requires more time than I have at the moment (it's also work that is not very interesting to me :P )
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: dfort on July 20, 2015, 08:11:25 AM
Both the 1100D and the EOSM are currently in the same situation with the wrong FPS override values. I looked up the code, fps-engio.c, and found where the code was intentionally broken to prevent these platforms from being compiled. It is rather easy to change it so these platforms do compile but of course the point is to fix it. a1ex asked for users to run some tests and report the results which was done on both platforms but sadly for users of these cameras the developers that know what to do with these numbers are too busy and not that interested. This isn't to criticizes, they are unpaid volunteers and this is just the way free and open source software is developed. You want something, you have to figure it out.

This is the header to fps-engio.c and it has some clues. Unfortunately the link goes to an outdated Google spreadsheet which points to a newer spreadsheet but it is rather cryptic and I can't see where the values reported need to be plugged in to get the correct timer values.

@dmilligan - is there any hint at all where to look for some sort of documentation on this? Apparently the 1100D and EOSM use different methods to change timer B but I can't get much further than that.

Code: [Select]
/**
 * FPS control with engio calls (talking to DIGIC!)
 * This method is portable: works on all cameras.
 *
 * https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AgQ2MOkAZTFHdEZrXzBSZmdaSE9WVnpOblJ2ZGtoZXc#gid=0

 **/
 
/**
 * fps_timer_b_method
 * Notes by g3gg0:
 *
 * okay i found how to directly change the sensor frame rate without patching and copying memory areas.
 * it doesnt matter which mode is selected.
 *
 * on 600D v1.0.1 it is calling engio_write() with a buffer that writes the rate.
 *
 * unsigned long frame_rate[] = {
 *      FPS_REGISTER_B, 0xFFFF, // timer register
 *      FPS_REGISTER_CONFIRM_CHANGES, 0x01,   // coherent update
 *      0xFFFFFFFF          // end of commands
 * };
 *
 * void run_test()
 * {
 *     void (*engio_write)(unsigned int) = 0xFF1E1D20;
 *     frame_rate[1] = 0xFFFF; // timer value as usual [Alex: timer value minus 1 on certain cameras]
 *     engio_write(frame_rate);
 * }
 *
 *
 **/

This might be better discussed in a development topic but broken nightlies keep coming up in the user topics. Besides, I'm not a developer--I know just enough to get myself into trouble.

Hi.
2 short questions.
Is it possible to use manual exposure, iso and shutter speed, when filming with the 1100D on Magic Lantern?
And is 720p still the highest (H.264, not RAW) resolution - no 1080p?

I'm mostly shooting with my 50D and sometimes use my 1100D only as second camera.

Thanks!

1.Can you please tell me how to set it from automatic to manuel? I can't find it.
2.Has somebody ever tried implementing a 1080p video modus? Maybe it works, even if only for a few seconds/minutes.

Thanks!

1.In the ML menu make sure you are in the "Expo." tab and make sure "Exp. Override" is on. Then, in video mode, you should be able to adjust iso, shutter, etc. from that same tab (in magic lantern's menu).
2. I asked about 1080p before and they said it couldn't be done.

I have 7D and EOS M - both with ML installed, sure. Great addon to Canon.

Friend of mine ask me about video crop mode ability on his 1100D. I tell him to look into ML "Video" menu and enable Video Crop Mode in it. But he give me answer "I havnt this item in menu".

So, want to ask here. Have 1100D ability to write mp4 at crop video mode? As I know, current 1100D ML build havnt RAW video ability in. Crop mode also off?

No crop mode for 1100D.

Shooting raw, the crop function works. However, the 1100D is basically unusable for RAW video after too much time tying (too slow card slot and very low resolution with lots of bugs)

Short answer no.

I hope someone is still interested in this little large-pixeled APS-C camera.

I'm sorry guys IF my question maybe offends you, BUT I just have to find out somehow.
I'm not a coder, but would study it in order to make ML work on Canon 1200D.

Does anyone know IF the 1200D is the replacement for the older 1100D Canon?
If so, would the 1100D ML work on the 1200D?

If not, is there somebody who would create ML for the Canon 1200D, PLEASE!!???

Hello there!

First things thanks for your time.
I've spent a good part of my evening here trying to install ML on my 1100D but without success, I get the update file error :

Code: [Select]
Update file error.
Please check the memory card and reload the battery and try again.

I've :
* Formated my sd card (low level)
* use a 4Gb sd-card
* Executed the make_bootable script
* Tryed with three different build (latest, april and one from march).
* Updated my canon firmware to 1.0.5
* Re-downloaded firmware and try again.

My guess is that maybe there have been a new sub-build from canon for the 1.0.5 which is not compatible with ML (?) if so maybe did someone still have the canon firmware he used to upgrade before installing ML ?

Thanks in advance.
Excuse my engrish. :-X

Hi everyone
I just downloaded ML on my 1100D and it works fine :)
Now i really want to use a external monitor but my monitor only supports that old AV.
I can order that AV-400 cable for eos but on all sites the specifications says that 1100D is not supported.
Do you guys think that ML gave my camera the option to use AV output. Or can software don't change things like that ?

Hey 1100D / T3 ML users. Saw this in another topic:

- the raw buffer is not allocated all the time (as it's done on the new models) -> easy to fix, see the 1100D raw branch

There's a working branch of the 1100D? I thought it has been broken for over a year!

Nobody ran this test yet?

Post by: Floont on December 18, 2016, 03:16:29 PM
I thought the 1100D development was dead, too.  I missed the earlier request from a1ex;  here are my results:

(magiclantern-Nightly.2015May03.1100D105, clean fresh install)

First, 5x zoom had no effect on the timer values I observed.

In photo mode: after a fresh boot, timers were 0 (-1), 0 (-1).  Switching to photo mode after being in video mode, timers remained as they were in the video mode.

FPS override off:
1280x720@30: 960 (+0), 1112 (+0)
1280x720@25: 1000 (+0), 1280 (+0)

FPS override @35:
1280x720@30: 872 (-88), 1050 (-62)
1280x720@25: 872 (x0.87), 1050 (x0.82) <- this was the only setting that showed 'x' instead of '+' or '-'; also the only one with decimals

Let me know if there are other tests to be run, and I'll try to help.  I'd love to see a new version.

Great. Don't know what to do with that but hopefully we'll have 1100D back on the nightly builds.

I made some test builds for testing 10/12bit raw and included a build for the 1100D. Nothing is fixed yet and the new features are probably not working but we need to start somewhere. Let's see if we can breath some new life into this camera.

For brave testers only:

https://bitbucket.org/daniel_fort/magic-lantern/downloads/magiclantern-raw_video_10bit_12bit.2016Dec18.1100D105.zip

Sorry -- needs some more work on it before it is ready for testing.

Post by: dmilligan on December 19, 2016, 02:41:02 AM
How did you make this build? Raw video does not work on 1100D except on a very old experimental branch. That branch no longer cleanly merges with current unified or other recent developments like 10/12 bit.

The 1100D nightly build was intentionally disabled because a1ex noticed some incorrect values for FPS override timers. I've never cared enough to try and fix it (the Maths involved hurt my head :P ), I just compile it with the old incorrect values.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: dfort on December 19, 2016, 08:51:02 AM
Well if it the math hurts dmilligan's head then it must be way over my head!

I just compiled it with the incorrect FPS timers and didn't notice the missing modules. However, I was following this lead:

Quote from: a1ex
- the raw buffer is not allocated all the time (as it's done on the new models) -> easy to fix, see the 1100D raw branch

So it looks like I need to hunt down an old branch to find out what he means. Do you happen to recall the approximate vintage of that branch?

As I understand it: 1100D is still intentionally broken by undefining TG_FREQ_BASE as it seems.
But this also breaks "unified" (?) build, because reboot-all.c needs 1100D.105/magiclantern.bin.

As for now, I put
Code: [Select]
#undef FEATURE_FPS_OVERRIDEin
Code: [Select]
platform/1100D.105/features.hand I re-enabled the wrong
Code: [Select]
#define TG_FREQ_BASE 32070000in
Code: [Select]
src/fps-engio.cin my sandbox in order to be able to build "unified".

Basically, I wanted to try a unified build for two models I have, 60D and 550D. Am I correct that this is not possible at the moment?
Any suggestions where I can put in some work? I am willing to help and I know C and make.
I am still working my way through the build process - as for "unified" - that should possibly be another thread...

Hi dmilligan,

being both a software developer and an owner of the 1100D, I would be willing to help here. However I have no idea what exactly needs to be done with the values found by Floont in Reply #1410. You mention something about complicated maths. Is there some formula that we need to compute certain values with? Could you please point me in the right direction about what needs to be done? Then maybe I can figure out a way how to do it.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3

Study the FPS code and understand how it works (the ML code itself is basically the best documentation we have on the hardware). That's what I don't have time to do.

@Straight_Shooter

Wow, another developer with a 1100D. There are multiple issues going on that platform. Here's one we're trying to solve but keep getting lost tracing lv_raw_dump:

http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5601.msg176935#msg176935

a1ex hinted that solving the 1100D might help with other platforms:

http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5601.msg176545#msg176545

The math problem headache we're talking about here is:

src/fps-engio.c
Code: [Select]
#elif defined(CONFIG_1100D)
    #define NEW_FPS_METHOD 1
    #undef TG_FREQ_BASE
    // #define TG_FREQ_BASE 32070000 - incorrect, see http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=1009.msg146321#msg146321
    #undef FPS_TIMER_A_MIN
    #define FPS_TIMER_A_MIN (ZOOM ? 940 : 872)
    #undef FPS_TIMER_B_MIN
    #define FPS_TIMER_B_MIN 1050
    #define SENSOR_TIMING_TABLE MEM(0xce98)
    #define VIDEO_PARAMETERS_SRC_3 0x70C0C

We had a similar issue with the EOSM that was resolved. I'm not a developer so I can't tell you exactly how it was figured out but the discussion starts around here:

Post by: Straight_Shooter on January 13, 2017, 01:17:40 AM
From what little I know about this issue, I seem to understand that the value for TG_FREQ_BASE is not correct. To solve this, somehow a better value needs to be obtained. But I have zero idea what exactly needs to be done to achieve that, hence my question.

What kind of computation is needed here? Is this explained at some point in the code, maybe in a comment?
I guess I'll try having a look at the file: fps-engio.c

How to calculate the correct TG_FREQ_BASE is beyond me but last time I said that was because I didn't look at the code carefully enough.

It is incomplete, so you are welcome to fill in the missing bits. Some of them can be found in this thread, just follow dfort's links.

With this build, please check whether the FPS values displayed by ML match the value selected from Canon menu, in all video modes. Also check whether selecting 35 fps in ML menu gives valid image in all video modes.

With this build, please check whether the FPS values displayed by ML match the value selected from Canon menu, in all video modes.

1280x720 @ 25 fps selected:
ML displays a steady fps rate of 25.000

1280x720 @ 30 fps selected:
ML displays one of two different values. The fps value changes between 29.976 and 29.922.
This behavior is reproducible, but the time after which this happens seems to be random? I have seen it happen like after half a minute, or sometimes earlier (after ten seconds or so). It seems that the value 29.976 is shown for noticeably longer periods of time than the other value.

Also check whether selecting 35 fps in ML menu gives valid image in all video modes.

Desired FPS: 35 (from 25)
Actual FPS: 34.949

Desired FPS: 35 (from 30)
Actual FPS: 34.949

Hello,

So, I installed ML on my Rebel T3 (1100D) - onto two SD cards.
Both work well.
Now, the question is, when I try to record HDR videos - the video flickers like crazy (one frame at one set ISO, second frame the other set ISO, then it repeats).

Am I missing something or is that a slight glitch/bug thing?

If on Mac -- use @Danne's cr2hdr.app or MLP (depending on if shot in RAW or H264) to convert and render out ProRes w nice looking HDR effect.

It is also recommended to shoot in 50/60p when shooting HDR videos as the process will be halfed w fps after blending in the ISO 100/800 (or 100/1600 if you want to push it) and I can't help on Windows.

Well, that's unfortunate for me, because I'm a windows user. / Canon T3 (1100D) doesn't support 50/60p recording (highest I can get it is 35),
So I guess no HDR videos for me?

Hello,

I am trying to manually change video settings (ISO, Aperture, shutter) on the 1100D,
I came a cross a YouTube Video pointing to download magiclantern to do this.
I did it maybe a year ago, but now I seem not to be able to access it again.

Do I really need this program to manually change settings in video mode?
I also found the following but I cannot find on my camera the info button they are taking about:

Get into video mode from the rocker around the shutter button.

Press info a few times until you have a page of menu items.

Tap on the icon in the upper right corner. That will get you to the option for Manual Video.

Then you can change the settings by taping the setting you want to change and then adjusting via clicking left or right or rotating the click wheel.

Once you start a video by pressing the red record button you can change the settings without interrupting the recording.

Press the INFO button repeatedly until the settings are visible on the bottom of the screen.

Either tap the item or move to it using the click wheel right or left.

Then the easiest method of changing it is to rotate the wheel until you reach the value you want. Alternately you can tap the item such as ISO and then use the small arrows on screen left and right, and then press Set.


Thanks for any suggestions.

Welcome to the forum @nuvon -- jump over to the 12-bit (and 10-bit) RAW video development discussion (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5601.msg194442#msg194442) and let's breath some new life into this old camera.

Hi, guys. Thanks for your great job
I'm new to this forum, so I have 2 questions:

1. what's the last installable and usable nightly for our camera?
2. how can I help the development for our old, but still nice, 1100d?
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on January 02, 2018, 05:39:27 PM
1. the first one from the download page should be fine (more or less, there are a few things not working, such as Lua scripting)

2. watch other topics and see where the 1100D may need help (such as 10/12-bit raw recording, linked above, and - of particular interest for me right now - Lua updates (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=14828.msg194706#msg194706))

This camera is a tricky one (lowest amount of RAM out of all ML supported cameras, unusual display aspect ratio, lower resolution screen), so things are very likely to go wrong on this model first. Yet, testing feedback on this camera is almost nonexistent, so that's were you can help.

If you can compile ML and attempt to fix some of these issues, that would be even better. To get started, my (biased) recommendation would be to look at the QEMU guide (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/src/qemu/contrib/qemu/) - there is an installation video for Ubuntu (https://twitter.com/autoexec_bin/status/913530810686418944), for Mac (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=16012.msg191686#msg191686) and a guide for Windows (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=20214.0).

There is an experimental raw video build, but other than a few snapshots from Danne (https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5601.msg194925#msg194925), I have no idea how it works in practice => please report back. The silent picture module requires the LiveView raw backend enabled, so try it from the 10/12-bit raw video build.

If it works fine or if I can solve it easily based on user feedback, I'll consider integrating this feature into mainline.

Got a 1100D available. Tested "from the 10/12-bit raw video build" from experimental section. Not sure what to test so a few general results. (Lua not working):

- Silent dng files are recorded but with black borders. Only the first dng contains an image with 10/12bit. 14bit extracts all dng files from the MLV file.
- MLV files 10/12/14 bit with borders

Samples(20mb)
https://bitbucket.org/Dannephoto/magic-lantern/downloads/1100D_samples_MLV_DNG.zip

As too often I´m on a tight schedule but will do my best to help with feedback on this...

Additional info:
Also want to point out that for every mlv_lite recording mode there are several beeps and display messages about "Hack error at 0" and "data corruption at slot 38"

mlv_play:
Trying to preview the MLV file in camera(mlv_play) gives the info "Invalid header size" and a stuck screen which resolves when pushing a button and gets me back to liveview.

I just had a glass of wine, so I might write nonsense, but it is my understanding that "more than 2 frames" means 3 or 4 or 5 frames, or any other number x where "x > 2" evaluates to True (at least in the English dialect I'm familiar with).

"Data corruption" does not sound good; may I see some EDMAC screenshots?

According to your question:

It´s about 60mb in size so I assume it´s more than two shitty frames in there:

Hm, other than frame #2 (corrupted) and possibly #3 (broken metadata), all other frames are clean.

Can you run the stubs test (selftest.mo) from both the 10/12-bit build and the lua_fix build? Also EDMAC screenshots and other related stuff from selftest.mo and edmac.mo.

Stubs API test starts and run but after a while falls into an error.

Interesting, I just ran the Stubs API test on the EOSM2 thinking it might show what I need to work on and it failed on LoadCalendarFromRTC, same as your 1100D test. Ran it on the EOSM and it also failed at the same spot. All tests passed on the 700D.

The above log shows successful result on LoadCalendarFromRTC; the problem is at the next test ;)

Got this in QEMU:

       _free(p)
       m2 = MALLOC_FREE_MEMORY => 0x43148
[Pass] ABS((m0-m1) - 50*1024) => 0x10
[Pass] ABS(m0-m2) => 0x0
       m0 = GetFreeMemForAllocateMemory() => 0x6f24c

The lua_fix and 10/12-bit experimental builds also have the latest changes for 1100D (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/commits/branch/allocate-raw-lv-buffer); any luck with these?

The silent picture module should work too.

Tested 10/12-bit experimental
Silent DNG works and MLV has the correct size although giving malloc errors, check pics below. As I managed to stop the file before the camera buffer ran out it´s also possible to transcode the 10bit file with mlv_dump and the files looks really nice.

Stubs api test is working, ends with following message:

Data corruption: regression or nondeterministic issue also present in previous build? (this will take some more recordings to figure out)

Can you test the Jan31 build on something else than 100D?

Lua test locked up at testing Canon GUI functions? That's odd - this test is just flipping GUI modes back and forth (MENU, PLAY, LiveView, photo mode). This test also works in QEMU...

Was not an issue with earlier build. Only "Hack error at 0" Could test a few more files to see if I can reproduce data corruption.

Ran a few files on a 600D with this build and all files were recorded nicely:
magiclantern-raw_video_10bit_12bit.2018Jan31.600D102

Don´t have my 5D mark III available, maybe someone else could test on that one.


Update*
Data corruption issues appears also on januay 30th build when stopping manually or camera automatically stops filming. When checking the MLV files there is a corrupted frame in the later part of the file more or less always present an all files.

Tested 31th january build on a faster SD card and 10bit was continuous with max resolution1424x480.
Data corruption seems gone. Maybe it was a slow/bad card. Will do more takes with the faster card...Yep, data corruption seems vanished.
Two noob questions. Turning off the beep? Is there a manual mode setting for when recording movies? Cannot find it.

How about lossless... :P

@Danne: actually I was thinking at other models with low memory (600D, 650D, 700D, EOSM) and I remembered you had something from this list. These updates were taken from crop_rec_4k, initially written from 5D3, so that test is unlikely to give any surprises.

Can you also take a screenshot of the console (Debug menu - Show console) right after starting the camera in movie mode and enabling raw video, and another one right after turning it off?

Lossless compression on DIGIC 4 is hard - my attempt on 60D (some months ago) was unsuccessful. I'll revisit it at some point, but not right now - my short-term goal is to integrate the current stuff into mainline (QEMU, Lua, 10/12-bit raw video, 100D, 70D, 1200D etc).

The silent DNG looks fine to me (I have something to address the overexposure, work in progress, stay tuned).

@starbase64: if you are talking about the full-res silent picture, it should behave the way you want in the lua_fix build.

Wait a minute, that means the raw buffer is not overwritten by anything else. Then, where is all this allocation thingie coming from? Maybe back then it didn't work for some other reason, and we thought it's some sort of memory corruption? How do the same two screenshots look in x5 zoom?

(BTW, the screenshots are easier to compare if you don't add variable-sized white borders; try "convert foo.ppm foo.png")

That's clean, too - we may not even need this allocation stuff. Can you check the photo mode as well? This time, the two states would be:
- global draw off (camera started that way, not turned off afterwards)
- global draw on, with any raw-based overlay enabled (such as raw histogram, raw zebras or raw spotmeter)

Can you define DEFAULT_RAW_BUFFER_SIZE as 8MB (8*1024*1024 - from counting the pixels in the screenshots I get about 8.7), keep CONFIG_MARK_UNUSED_MEMORY_AT_STARTUP (so it would re-check this size, just in case) and try recording? This time, the assert should no longer get triggered.

If successful, can you try this configuration in all the video modes? (photo mode, video mode, x5 zoom, whatever else this camera has).

TODO: I'm not really sure I understand how this raw buffer allocation is done in Canon code, and whether the results are repeatable; will experiment on 60D and see what I get.

Can you define DEFAULT_RAW_BUFFER_SIZE as 8MB (8*1024*1024 - from counting the pixels in the screenshots I get about 8.7), keep CONFIG_MARK_UNUSED_MEMORY_AT_STARTUP (so it would re-check this size, just in case) and try recording? This time, the assert should no longer get triggered.
To my patched version from here:

And files comes out clean and nice without errors. But I don´t get errors with today´s raw_video_10bit_12bit either even without the fix. I had a slow card before which I believe corrupted files. 5x zoom still comes out with a fishy top border like described here:

Well, it's easier when Canon code does the memory allocation for us (that was the point of these last tests - to use their buffer, like we do on all other models). This camera has the lowest amount of RAM out of all other ML-enabled cameras, so it's best if we don't have to allocate large stuff just to get raw LiveView data. However, should we ever need to do that (maybe if anyone would like to implement full-res LiveView for timelapse), the raw backend is now ready for that (cc @ these folks (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=19336)).

What about this?
Code: [Select]
for i in *.PPM; do
    convert $i -resize "500x500>" ${i%.PPM}.png
done

(for pixel peeping, like I did to estimate the raw buffer size, I actually prefer the screenshot non-resized)

Hey Danne - nice work on the 1100D. It would be great to get some simple silent DNG files from the various settings and run the raw_diag module so we could check that the skip values are correct. Looks like the zoom mode needs some adjustment.

malloc error :((sad smiley from liveview window)

Solved. Took many hours to rework the memory backend (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/branch/memory-backend) (found lots of other issues besides this one), but now it runs on all models in QEMU. Overall, the memory backend should be a lot more robust.

Torture test: old-style Lua (without umm_malloc) on 1100D (the camera with lowest amount of memory). It finally worked! 8)

Also looking for a high-res photo of the camera display (large enough to see the individual pixels), showing ML menu with any recent build.

If it's hard to get the entire screen in focus, just focus on some problem areas (e.g. some icon or fine print that doesn't look well).

I've been using magiclantern-Nightly.2017Aug07.1100D105, but per a1ex's request, I loaded magiclantern-lua_fix.2018Feb24.1100D105 and took the two attached photos.  (This version is effectively non-functional for me - it displays a large number of error messages at launch, most of the menus are just black pages with an icon at the top, and I can't navigate within the menus themselves, but that's not what the question was about (so I'll return to  magiclantern-Nightly.2017Aug07.1100D105 for now)).
Hopefully these  images are close to what you're looking for.  I can try other things if it's helpful.
(Please note that I have a scratch-guard coating on my display, so there might be some artifacts from that - if so, such artifacts should be consistent between the two photos.)

Ha, the screen looks very similar to the one from VxWorks models (https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=1452.msg195564#msg195564).

Press MENU to get out of that screen (you have it in the regular builds too).

Can you try a few more different screens? In particular, raw histogram has some fine details (the vertical bars). A large console should also help. Also, a large zoom on fine print, please (even if it's just a small part of the screen in the picture).

Vertically, things are pretty clear - odd lines are missing (first line being 0). Horizontally, I'm not very sure what happens. Best guess: all columns end up used, half of them on odd physical lines, and the other half on even ones.

As I said, this new version doesn't play well with my camera.  I can't get the histogram to display - menu item is on, but grayed out.  It works in the 2017Aug07 version, if that's helpful (not sure if you're looking for something new or just how the 1100D display looks in general).

Yes, that helps. Can you (or anyone else who might have an extreme macro lens) zoom on the histogram even more? I'd like to find out how the subpixels are arranged and how the display buffer is interpreted by the hardware (just as a curiosity, not something of high priority).

BTW, you have some modules from the older version, that's the reason you've got the errors.

Whenever something is grayed out, it also has a message at the bottom of the screen. Can you read it?

The four photos I posted were taken with my iPhone SE.  I dug out my old A590 and S30, both of which have macro features, but neither one got an image sharper or higher-resolution than the iPhone pic I already posted.  Hopefully, someone with a better second camera/lens will chime in.

I need to leave for a while, will look at the 2018Feb24 version again another time - I'll try a completely clean install to see if it clears up any of the issues I'm seeing.

Doing a minor firmware update like 1.0.5 -> 1.0.6 on the 1100D should be relatively easy.

https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=19417.0

It requires a firmware dump and some time. I can help but someone needs to get this started. You can use the portable ROM dumper that is on the bottom of the Nightly downloads page (https://builds.magiclantern.fm/). Don't post a direct link to the firmware dump! Just post when you have it and we'll take it from there.

Instructions on how to run the portable dumper:

I'll post a test build on my downloads page (https://bitbucket.org/daniel_fort/magic-lantern/downloads/) but the selftest module isn't working so it will be just to see if it is working the same as the 1.0.5 nightly version. Seems like it would be better to test this camera on the raw_video_10bit_12bit branch because more modules are working on that branch.

One question, is anyone actually using this camera and is willing to run it through some tests?

There's a 1100D Canon Firmware for Testers.zip package on my downloads page with both the Canon 1.0.5 and 1.0.6 firmware updaters so you don't need to search for them to go back and forth.

@Dfort: I upgraded my firmware to Canon's 1.0.6 alright, but with a different card loaded with your 1.0.6 ML files; ML folder and autoexe.bin file, I can't seem to do the ML firmware update from the Canon-menu-firmware route. Do I need the ML-SETUP.FIR file from the other card? Nope- that didn't work. What am I doing wrong?
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: dfort on May 02, 2018, 02:06:17 AM
@DavidSamish - This is an early test build and doesn't have an ML-SETUP.FIR file for the 1.0.6 firmware yet. If you didn't uninstall ML before doing the Canon firmware update then your camera boot flag is still set so put the 1100D.106 ML files on a bootable card -- a card that has had ML installed should have the bootflag set. You can also set the bootflag on your card using either EOScard (http://pel.hu/eoscard/) for the PC or MacBoot (http://www.zenoshrdlu.com/macboot/macboot.html) for the Macintosh. If all else fails, go back to 1.0.5, install 1100D.105 and make sure it is working then update again to 1.0.6 making sure you don't uninstall ML or format the card in a way that erases the bootflag.

Once I get some feedback that the test build actually works on the camera I'll ask for a ML-SETUP.FIR for the 1100D.106.

On 1200D, this button code appears to be different than what we have assumed.

The 1100D was falling behind other cameras on the unified branch so I brought it up to date with this pull request (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/925/1100d-unified-updates/diff). New test builds for the unified branch for both 1.0.5 and 1.0.6 posted on my downloads page (https://bitbucket.org/daniel_fort/magic-lantern/downloads/). Once these check out we can move on to the lua_fix tests.

Also, please check the previous post (https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=1009.msg200927#msg200927) about the Q button code.

@dfort: I got the 1.0.6 firmware and the ML 1100D106 to work together. I had to degrade to 1.0.5 and re-upgrade, as you mentioned. The MacBoot didn't work; I got "The Java class file "MacBoot.class" could not be launched."

I am getting an error message: 'Error loading "ML/MODULES/t3_106.sym" File does not exist." and on the bottom of the screen "missing symbol file: ML/MODULES/t3_1006.sym : File does not exist" and

That doesn't sound good. Are you sure one message says "t3_106.sym" and the other one says "t3_1006.sym" ???

I know it is a PITA but also check the 1.0.5 test build because I put in a pull request to get some modules working on that version.

I'm not seeing these problems in QEMU or maybe I just don't know what to look for.

I am getting an error message: 'Error loading "ML/MODULES/t3_106.sym" File does not exist."

Are you deleting everything off the card before transferring all the files from the download or just copying over the autoexec.bin file?

Ok--so how is the camera handling? Is it working as expected?

Turn on the selftest module and run the Debug -> Self tests -> Stubs API test -- problems? Go back to 1.0.5 and try it again. What we're looking for is if the issues we find on 1.0.6 are new or inherited from 1.0.5.

Once we get through this part I'll make a lua_fix build for 1.0.6. In the meantime, you could run the lua_fix build for 1.0.5 that is on the experiments download page (https://builds.magiclantern.fm/experiments.html).

[EDIT] There have been some download activity on the test builds but no reports yet. I posted a 1.0.6 lua_fix build hoping that someone takes the initiative to do some testing and report back.

For every single camera model available on the Experiments page (lua_fix build), please run:

- api_test.lua (upload the log)
- selftest.mo -> stubs tests (upload the log)
- bench.mo -> memory benchmarks (upload the screenshot)
- overall sanity check (for example, if you decide to take this build out and use it for a couple of hours, please report back)

Some testing with the 1100D. Provided autoexe.bin and other info logs from three test builds:
https://bitbucket.org/Dannephoto/magic-lantern/downloads/tests_1100D_new%20firmware.zip

Started with this build since it was already on my cam:
testbuild_105_01_stubtest(zipped folder)
Changeset: 23524a6ed2f9+ (allocate-raw-lv-buffer) tip

Seems more stable than with lua test builds(check autoexe.bin for build info)
Both firmware versions seems to behave the same in my tests. Cannot do any allround tests because Q button stopped working in both lua versions. Check zipped folder:
testbuild_105_02_stubtest_luatest

Thanks for testing. I suspected that 1.0.6 would be about the same as 1.0.5 and that 1.0.5 has some issues.

The selftest module test turned up something I haven't seen before:

Code: [Select]
[FAIL] bmp = bmp_load("ML/CROPMKS/CINESCO2.BMP", 1) => 0x0

That is the only failed test so we aren't in too bad a shape there but the lua tests stopped on the GUI function test on both 1.0.5 and 1.0.6. Let's see what other tests it can pass or fail. Check out this post on the 60D topic (https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=14739.msg200395#msg200395) for instruction on how to run individual lua tests.

As expected, the benchmark looks very different on the camera than in lua--see Reply #1505 (https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=1009.msg201029#msg201029) for the same test in QEMU.

Hey

I'm new here so apologies if I'm posting on the wrong thread but i have a question specific to canon 1100d.

On page 52 of this forum someone suggested that it might be possible to rewire your camera to be able to take a mic...

I Just bought rodé videomic go thinking it could connect to my canon 1100d (it does have  something that looks a lot like a 3.5 input) but when cable wouldn't go in input i looked it up and found that that model  doesnt take external mic... Bit of a bugger as i'm travelling and it was a mission  to get the microphone in the first place...

Has anyone managed to hack their camera's hardware to allow it to take a mic?

Cheers

Hello, new to photography and camera firmware hacking. But, I've been rooting Android since 2012, and I tuned my 2004 Grand Prix's PCM.

I've found the nightly build for my Rebel T3 (1100D)
I understand the nightly builds should be flashed over a stable build, but I can't find any other builds for my rig?

Could someone point me in the right direction?
Thanks

Not correct. Consider all instructions not found/linked on this site outdated and invalid.
Follow instruction found in -> Top of page -> Downloads -> Download Nightly Builds -> 1100D / Rebel T3 1.0.5 -> Installation

BTW: If you are new to photography consider learning how to use your cam without ML. Learning about exposure time, aperture and ISO is challenging enough (been there, done that). YMMV esp. if you are addicted to video recording.

Those are the instructions I followed, before I signed up on the forums. The only thing I did not do is copy my ROM files back to my computer.
 I was hoping to have recording bars at the top of the screen, and like the idea of having a battery icon work a percentage (xx%)
I probably wouldn't get into very many of the features of this hack, but still wanted to have it there in case I found I was at a point where I would like to use something.
I am finding there is a lot to be learned, thanks for the advice!

Please link/quote the part of instructions talking about "stable build" having to be overwritten to work. We like to correct our errors.

The only thing I did not do is copy my ROM files back to my computer.
There is a chance getting a bricked cam to work using these files.

In movie mode toggle screens by pressing DISP button until ML screen appears.

Looking for a quick test:
- qemu branch
- compile from minimal/qemu-frsp with "make MODEL=1100D"
- you'll get a small autoexec.bin with no dependencies (no other files required), that's going to capture a full-res silent picture and preview it
- if it works, please upload a picture of the camera screen (just want to check where the preview appears on the screen)
- the picture will not be saved on the card (it should only display a preview).

Tried the qemu-frsp quick test on a 500D and it works. I had to run it a few times because the timing of the button presses seem to make a difference. Anyway, the request is for testing on the 1100D. One of the few people I know who has access to this camera and can compile ML is on vacation so I uploaded a test file to my downloads page (https://bitbucket.org/daniel_fort/magic-lantern/downloads/). Look for 1100D_qemu-frsp_test.zip

This is for the 1100D.105 and when you unzip it, the autoexec.bin file placed on a bootable card and run on a camera that has the bootflag set.

Note that this will capture a full-res silent picture. If you haven't used this feature before you'll probably be surprised by an overexposed image. That's because FRSP doesn't use the camera shutter and the capture speed is usually much slower than what you have set.

Here is what the test looks like on the 500D. Note that there is a black bar at the top of the image so it doesn't cover the entire screen.

Interesting. So the Canon overlays were captured in the image? Have you tried this a few times and does it always appears the same?
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: a1ex on July 29, 2018, 11:26:31 AM
Maybe you just have to press the buttons quicker. The test program only gives you 5 seconds to do so; after that, it attempts to capture the image regardless of whether you went to LiveView/PLAY or not.

Also make sure you are in M mode, and ISO must not be Auto. Otherwise you may get an error message.

OK - I deleted the earlier post. Now I believe I captured what you requested.

That is a lamp shade in the upper left of the image. The rest is overexposed but I believe it gives you what you were hopinh for.

Hello there!  T3 owner and ML user here.  I am willing to test firmware that you throw at me.

My camera runs 1.0.5 right now.  Is 1.0.6 ML just as stable as 1.0.5?  If so, I may upgrade the "official" firmware.

I worked on a port for the 1.0.6 Canon firmware (https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=1009.msg200539#msg200539). Don't have the camera so we're depending on user input. You can get a test build from my downloads page (https://bitbucket.org/daniel_fort/magic-lantern/downloads/).

If you download the current build from the official downloads page you'll see lots of modules aren't building so a while back I submitted a fix for the 1100D.105 unified branch. Don't have the camera so we're depending on user input. You can get a test build from my downloads page (https://bitbucket.org/daniel_fort/magic-lantern/downloads/). Please post your test results here or on the pull request (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/925/1100d-unified-updates/diff).

Uh oh... I uninstalled ML from 1.0.5 camera by doing the firmware update and waiting one minute.  Then I upgraded the camera to 1.0.6, downloaded your latest test Nightly, placed it on a card, and attempted to re-enable ML booting through the Firmware Update.

Of course, as I now see reading back one page, ML-SETUP.FIR is not updated to 1.0.6 support yet.  So on my camera the firmware update screen hangs with "wrong firmware version, expected 105, pull the battery".

I tried using EOSCard to set BOOTDISK and EOS_DEVELOP but, of course, even if the *card* is marked bootable, the *camera* is not hacked to read it.

How are people getting 1.0.6 ML to boot without a 1.0.6 ML-SETUP.FIR?  Can I get one made somehow?
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3
Post by: Walter Schulz on November 25, 2018, 10:15:02 PM
Best using 2 cards. One for ML and an obsolete one for Canon firmware.
Format both cards.
Use "obsolete" to downgrade to Canon firmware 1.0.5.
Copy ML for 1.0.5 to "ML card" and install ML on cam. Remove card.
Take "obsolete" and upgrade cam to Canon firmware 1.0.6.
Take "ML card" and copy files for ML (for 1.0.6) to card. Overwrite all files.

Done.

Post by: greg_kennedy on November 25, 2018, 10:26:59 PM
Thanks!  I actually solved it myself by following your steps above - but did it using just one card and EOSCard to disable bootable when going 1.0.5-ml -> 1.0.6.  (Camera crashed when trying to use a Bootable card without a valid autoexec.bin on filesystem)

Next question for @a1ex: I can't find "Show GUI Events" on the Debug menu, otherwise I'd tell you the Q code for 1.0.6.
Title: Re: Canon 1100D / T3

Right, I've disabled a bunch of features to squeeze RAM, including FEATURE_SHOW_GUI_EVENTS.

Yeah, looking forward to the holiday season, to... catch up with ML developments :D

Been a while since I worked on it and never noticed the comment about the 600D. Suppose it also applies to the 1100D?

From model_list.c in QEMU source:

Code: [Select]
    {
        .name                   = "600D",
        .ram_size               = 0x10000000,   /* 256MB */
        ...
    },
    {
        .name                   = "1100D",
        .ram_size               = 0x08000000,   /* 128MB */
        ...
    },

so the issue is much worse on 1100D.

However, out of all DIGIC 2 and newer models, the crown goes to 1000D (64 MB). Even the old 400D appears to have 128 MB.



Edit: apparently the sensor in 1100D might be faster than expected:

- 1100D might have 128 MPix/s (32 MHz x 4 channels, but default video readout apparently uses 2? I really need to double-check that)

That would be just as fast as 700D & co., if this hypothesis is valid. That is, faster than 600D & co.

Photo mode readout configuration: timer A = 1474, B = 2876, clock = 32 MHz => 7.55 fps at full resolution.

The camera is advertised for 3 frames per second, right? There are 4 pixels read out for each timer A increment, i.e. 4 channels read out at once. There is some overhead too, that's why timer A * 4 is greater than horizontal resolution.

Video readout configuration, from raw_res.txt:
720p25: A = 1000, B = 1280, readout size 1496 x 967 (this includes black borders)
720p30: A = 960, B = 1112, same readout size
Timer A can be pushed to 872 in both modes.

What's interesting: for each timer A increment, only 2 pixels appear to be read out. In other words, the sensor might throttled in LiveView. No other DIGIC <= 5 camera does that, to my knowledge, so I'd like to find out how it works. Will prepare some low-level tests.



Edit Jan 1: false alarm. The 1100D definitely uses 4 channels for LiveView readout. Daniel Rozsnyo took one of these apart and showed me the analog signal from one of these 4 channels in LiveView:

(https://a1ex.magiclantern.fm/bleeding-edge/1100D/1100D-lv-readout.jpg)

Reducing that overhead might be doable (likely one of the ADTG registers); doing so might enable higher frame rates, up to about some theoretical 80 FPS at 1428x804 (i.e. full-width 16:9) !!!

1100D, on the other hand, is an interesting beast:

It runs at 32 MHz x 4 channels (i.e. pixel clock is the same 700D & co.), but for some reason, it has a huge overhead. In regular (24/25/30p) movie mode, C0F06084/88 is set to 0x200c3/0x3c903af, i.e. xmax = 1886 (likely rounded to 1888), out of which 390 pixels are cropped from the left side. ML still has to crop 68 pixels of left OB; that gives 1428 active horizontal pixels, 458 (!) for OB width and 2 pixels for rounding (guess); these require "only" 14.75 μs/line. The unexplained overhead would be 12.5 μs/line, or exactly 400 clock ticks. This one is worth fine-tuning, if you ask me.

Why?
- 720p24/30: 960 / 32 = 30 μs/line
- 720p25: 1000 / 32 = 31.25 μs/line
- FPS override: 872 / 32 = 27.25 μs/line
- theoretical value: (872 - 400) / 32 = 14.75 μs/line! (without altering OB areas)

For a 16:9 frame, which would be just 1428x804, it would require only 11.86 ms!

Assuming one can somehow drop 400 pixels from the left OB, that would free another 100 clock ticks, i.e. 11.63 μs/line, or 9.35 ms for a 16:9 LiveView frame.

Alright fellas... Been wanting to get myself into this as I've finally borrowed one from work. Definitely feels like an interesting beast needless to say @a1ex!

Compiled from @Danne's branch (crop_rec_4k_mlv_snd_isogain_1x3_presets) and seems I got it to installed just fine (turned off cam and back on) then there goes this pattern of three long intermediate flashes with three additional long flashes 'n vice versa from the orange blinking LED just above the play button on this body.


LiveView does not appear anything. It's pitched black. Battery/Card pull gets you out of it. Any hints? Am I better off upgrading this to 1.0.6 from 1.0.5?   :o

Surprising you got that far. The 1100D is a Digic 4 LV State camera and isn't supported in the crop_rec branches. Try the raw_video_10bit_12bit_LVState branch if you want bleeding edge on this camera.

Are you saying that this isn't working on 1.0.6? I guess I could update it with the latest lua_fix changes but unless you're testing the 1.0.6 port you should probably be using either the "stable" nightly build (https://builds.magiclantern.fm/1100D-105.html) or something from the experiments downloads page (https://builds.magiclantern.fm/experiments.html).
