Title: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.2.3
Post by: a1ex on March 16, 2014, 03:26:45 PM
Please discuss raw recording issues in the Raw Video (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?board=49.0) section of the forum.

Raw recorders (mlv_rec, raw_rec) are just apps that run on top of Magic Lantern core, just like Auto ETTR (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5200), Arkanoid (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7847), Dot-Tune (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=4648) and many other modules (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?board=52.0). This thread is for issues specific to the 5D Mark III port (in particular, problems introduced in 1.2.3 that did not exist in 1.1.3).

Any messages about RAW/MLV from this thread will be deleted without notice.


It's out! (http://builds.magiclantern.fm/)

Not alpha, not beta, nor zeta, just a bleeding edge that happens to work for me. It might work for you or it might not.

(note that my standards are fairly high, so what I call bleeding edge, others may call semi-stable or whatever)

(http://a1ex.magiclantern.fm/bleeding-edge/new-installer.png)

Installation:
1) Format the card from the camera.
2) Make sure you are running Canon firmware 1.2.3 (http://pel.hu/down/eos5d3-v123-win.zip).
3) Copy ML files (http://builds.magiclantern.fm/) on the card and run Firmware Update.

Uninstallation:
1) Run Firmware Update from your ML card.
2) Follow the instructions.

What's hot:
- bootflag issue solved! (p.s. some bloggers got it wrong, you still enable it in the camera, but you can disable it by uninstalling)
- installation is really easy (simply unzip the files on the card, update firmware and you are ready to go)
- uninstallation is equally easy (update firmware and follow the instructions)
- EosCard is now optional
- ML restores itself after formatting the card (man, that komputerbay card is fast!)
- you may install on any card combination you may think of
- over 300.000 downloads (http://a1ex.magiclantern.fm/download-stats.png) in the last two months :)

What's not:
- unlike most firmware updates which fix minor things, this one changed a LOT, especially on the display side (for example, LiveView is now quad-buffered and most of the display registers were changed).
- watch out for corrupted frames (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=10443) (still an issue?)
- fast zebras not working, but can be fixed
- no full-screen magic zoom (I never used it anyway, but was nice)
- no brightness/contrast/saturation adjutments (registers changed)
- [SOLVED!] HDMI issues
- no documentation (yet).

For photo use (raw overlays, ETTR and so on) it should be just fine (that's how I use it).

Source code:
- the 5D3-123 branch (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/branch/5D3-123) in the main repository.
- feel free to merge it locally (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9524) with unified (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/commits/branch/unified) or experimental branches (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/branches) to get a sneak peek for the future updates.
- I'll merge it to unified when I'll be confident it's at least as good as the 1.1.3 branch (based on your feedback).

Thanks to:
- chris_overseas for initial porting and testing
- horshack for advice about safely toggling the bootflag
- Audionut for early builds and support in the early porting thread (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9827)
- marekk, pompeiisneaks, jpaana, rufustfirefly, sinubis and others for early feedback and small fixes
- mk11174 for getting the 700D port in sync in this one
- everyone else who volunteeres their time to make a great community project.

Final notes:
- check nightly builds often and stay up to date! I'll do my best to make sure there are no critical issues in the nightly builds.
- there are quirks and bugs waiting to be fixed (please report them properly, with details on how to reproduce (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html)).
- grab the ARM toolchain and start hacking! (start with something easy (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9625) or just tweak/fix whatever you find interesting).
- If anything goes wrong, we don't pay for repairs. Use Magic Lantern at your own risk!

coming soon: a lot of stuff, including a real sensor upgrade, a C compiler that runs on your camera and other geeky stuff like this

Congratulations! Even more people will be drawn to ML now with the bootflag issue solved.

Indeed we'll see about this, my theory is that some part of people shying away from the missing bootflag removal are too cautious to try ML at all as it's still widely regarded has a "hack".

It's as safe or unsafe as before, it's apparently just easier and and uninstallation is possible.

You're still running bleeding edge nightly code usually just tested by one single person, though as alex wrote he's very concerned with safety and thus nightly appears to be effectively the new rolling stable-ish release.

Post by: Jolly Roger on March 16, 2014, 06:06:55 PM
It works fairly well.

What I noticed so far:

+) when HDMI+LCD mirroring is active, ML acts like it does when Canon displays are ON (so no overlays, neither in camera lcd or in external monitor). Infact, inside ML menu, info bar at the bottom keep saying "Press INFO (outside ML menu) to turn Canon displays off.".

Post by: DavidSh on March 16, 2014, 06:26:22 PM
I can tell you that i bout the 5d3 only because of ml raw with 1.2.3.
i waited for that release, refreshing  chris overseas topic "how do i dump 5d3 1.2.3" and the bit bucket branch 100 times a day.
evan started to learn coding c# ( i know some vb and java) for trying to help.
I think that yesterday i was the first one who volunteer installing this version.

As i learned by the time A1ex do not release versions before he test it again and again and again.

Lots of people waited for that moment. truly a happy day.

some of us  should also learn not asking when, if you want to get "when" closer to now, just try to help by testing, by coding, whatever. and move this project forward.

As stated elsewhere before:

Install with an original Canon battery or a 3rd party battery
that is not requiring you to acknowledge using it,
OR hold your fingers still and wait until the installer finishes
in the background before acknowledging the use of this battery.

ML did not load  >:(

Has this to do with the fact that I am using a 64GB SD card?

Please see my post on the CR forum http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=20051.msg378682#msg378682 (http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=20051.msg378682#msg378682)

- watch out for corrupted frames (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=10443) (from my limited testing, I'm not fully convinced the issue is fully resolved on 1.2.3 => for serious video use, please consider staying on 1.1.3)

So, if we're mainly using the Mark III for H264 and RAW video, you recommend to stay on 1.1.3 because of the corrupted frames, or it shoudn't happen? Will it be the same as 1.1.3 or worse?

Do the installation instructions above apply if we are running nightly builds on 1.1.3 and already have the boot flag flipped on? I think Im on a March nightly build on 5d3. With that being said if we uninstall from from the 1.2.3 does that completely remove the boot flag? Sorry if this is a irritating question. I haven't read up on 1.2.3 yet

If you have the bootflag already enabled, just upgrade to 1.2.3 Canon firmware, power off the camera, put ML (1.2.3 build) on card, et voilà.

First of all, THANKS A LOT for your work with ML!

I've been waiting for a 1.2.3 release forever!

I installed it but I can't find the M tab for raw video.
The M tab seems to be replaces with a triangle symbol tab.


I fixed it!

Thanks a bunch!

Post by: garry23 on March 16, 2014, 10:10:01 PM
I have been 'playing' with the latest 5DIII version all day in 'photography' mode, ie I don't do video.

All looks good and stable.

The only thing I will say is that, for the old fellas like me, with poor eyesight, it would be nice to see the 'green bar' confirmation in magic focus a little clearer, ie broader bar or maybe a green dot in the magic window.

I fully appreciate this is minor and I will continue to test and report.

Once again: well done ML (and Alex!)

Post by: EXIV on March 16, 2014, 10:36:34 PM
Great!!! Here is the very first test of the Magic Lantern for 5D Mark III 1.2.3 I just installed this new ML version and then I made a couple of shots to test the raw, which WORKS PERFECTLY!

The only issue, I was so in rush trying it that I committed the mistake to shoot with a very low ISO, so I had to increase the exposition in Lightroom, and this is why there is an incredible amount of noise, which indeed it wouldn't be there if I would have shoot at a decent ISO. 

I will keep testing the other functions and then come back with updates!

Thanks a lot ML guys!

IMPORTANT UPDATE 17th March 2014:
Today I have tested the raw video capability again, this time with clips longer than 30 seconds. I shot two long shots: the first one, the one embedded below, is OK, while the second one is corrupted, meaning I can't convert it with RAWmagic, and I definitely can't use it... this is so bad! I am not sure if I am the only one having this issue, but must be seriously considered if you plan to shoot a job with this.



The video has been shot on:
Canon 5D Mark III
Tamron SP 24-70mm f2.8 USD
CF Lexar Professional 1000x 32GB

No, I didn't although I don't know any about builds or nightly builds as I only have installed ML once and as all I needed was working perfectly I didn't touch it (5D3 mainly using H264 and raw video). So I don't know what build I have installed. I'd like to know more about this but I'm a bit lost.

Thank you for your exellent work. Then I'll be trying 1.2.3 really soon.

@Jolly Roger Realy? Wow.
No eoscard? Get rid of bootflag? This goes against everything i know about ML ha this is awesome!

Anyone shooting with there record CF card (not ML SD card) formatted to EXFAT on 1.2.3. I like the file spanning of raw_rec when recording to EXFAT CF card

Just tested it on my 5D3! Superb!

I would like to thank you for 1.2.3 + bootflag removal support.

It works wonderfully. I tested it on my new (2nd) 5D3.

Then I verified the shutter count. It was 132 after my playing enough so it was new. You see when I got it I put a card without formatting it. It contained photos. I took some pictures then formatted. I saw numbers starting from 500 and I worried.

I knew it was my mistake the moment I switched cards and the number jumped to 900!

But now I verified it. Yet another plus for ML.

Thanks again...

for higher ISO's try to use Neat Video Denoiser. it does it's job very well on RAW files. Of course in camera raw disable all sharpening and add id after removing all noise.

i'm amazed with the results i've achieved with this software.

One thing I have noticed is that the SET option in auto-ETTR doesn't seem to work. The double press is fine.

Unless, of course, I'm missing something. I select SET, go to LV and nothing happens.

Double checking - I currently use ML 1.1.3 for serious video use as in work for clients. In this case, should I hold off from upgrade from my current firmware "1.1.13-ml-v2.3.NEXT" for now or should I really jump on this firmware 1.2.3 without hesitation? Love to have more input on this..

MZ flicker confirmed on 60fps while recording H264. Was it present on 1.1.3? (I prefer to avoid downgrading back and forth).

ETTR with SET: do you have any custom function assigned to SET? Some of these functions will change the button code.

You could also just buy a 2nd 5d2 :-> ... or get hired by Canon at last :-p

Wa-what? I never heard about this ... what functions do set the SET (or other) button codes? Thanks.

kgv5:  Understood.  I'll take the advice and wait a little longer for more feedback. Definitely can't have corrupted frame headaches. 

I long for the day when we could do continuous RAW recording without header/footer issues, but I guess that's for another thread.

I'm confused. The 5DMIII as standard (without ML) can output 60fps H264 on a 720p resolution. Isn't this what is being talked about? I need some clarity to settle my mind on this one.

I meant H264 1080p 50 or 60fps, I don't know what he referred to. Sorry about that. H264 720p at 60fps is possible even without ML as you say  ;)

Thanks for clearing that up, I understand your need now. I also really want this, ideally, I really want this in RAW format without using any stretching tricks. It would be fantastic if, somehow, the techs can figure this out and somehow pull-off 120fps at 720p. Such a wishlist that probably isn't possible, but hey, what do I know?

What I also want, and probably more useful, is the ability to switch/toggle the Zoom feature on the viewfinder whilst recording so you can perform a focus adjustment with accuracy without the need to buy an additional viewfinder. That would help massively as I have been in quite a few situations where I was, somehow, out of focus and it was really hard to tell in the standard viewfinder. Compared to the FPS wish, I feel the zoom toggle whilst recording would probably be more feasible.  Again, my apologies for plugin this wish as that would be in a different thread.

I was trying to use liveview with focus peaking and zebras.

It worked once, but every other time it crashed - gave me an error with I entered liveview mode.

Or in liveview I pressed 'info' to switch views, and it would lock.

Also had missing file message on boot up - about to try again loading from SD.

Here's a zip of logs I took from the card
https://www.dropbox.com/s/21luj8q67wcuslx/5dm3_errors.zip

Does this help? sorry if this isn't the place to do this :)


I tried to install from the SD instead (32gb instead of 64gb cf) - still crashes when trying to get things to work in liveview.

The raw rec was good up to 1920x1080x25p (Normal and crop mode) on Koputerbay 64GB.
But the MLV Raw doesnt work for me more than 1 min (4GB) and then it dumps some debug info about QUED something.

MZ flicker confirmed on 60fps while recording H264. Was it present on 1.1.3? (I prefer to avoid downgrading back and forth).

ETTR with SET: do you have any custom function assigned to SET? Some of these functions will change the button code.

MZ Flicker did not exist in 1.1.3

Can you upload your ML/SETTINGS directory and describe the steps to reproduce?

Sorry, I had deleted the ML directory - in an effort to get my camera stable again. I only touched the first three options in the menu with global layers, zebra and focus peaking. Also I had visual glitches from the beginning, when in the menus there was something overlapping the bottom section

I have actually found now, after reextracting ML to my CF and leaving the SD card out - it seems to be a lot better. Before I had many visual glitches in the menus. Now it seems to be working consistently.

Could it be related to using two cards? can't get the camera to boot with SD card in at the moment after having deleted the dir.

-- edit I put ML back on the SD, inserted it - still running smoothly. Formatted in the SD in camera (remove ML) - still all working ok

When using mlv_rec continuous 1080p 25fps, after around 4-5 minutes i get frame skip and then a write out to screen which only goes after i turn off and turn on camera

Installed and working!  Another success!!  :-)  Amazing...

Nightly.2014Mar16.5D3123 here.


I have 2 questions however...

๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏

1)  Installing and booting from a CF card is still not possible?  I am currently running ML off an 128GB SDXC card which works great (had to make it bootable with make_bootable.sh for it to work however).  I tried to also set up my 128GB 1050x Komputerbay CF in the same way, but with just the CF card in, the camera is completely unbootable and non-responsive until I take out the battery.  If both the SDXC and CF cards are inserted, I get the message:

Quote
ML on both cards, loading from SD.

and ML loads fine and I can shoot/record to either card.  Also, if just the SDXC card is inserted, I can also use ML with no issues.  According the the message, ML detects a copy of itself on the CF card, but cannot load from there (and makes the camera seem broken until I pop out the batteries!).  Is this normal behaviour?  Is it impossible to boot from CF cards?

๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏

2) Audio recording in movie mode, even with H.264, seems to not work at all unless mlv_snd is loaded and enabled.  Furthermore, mlv_snd causes many errors unless mlv_rec is also enabled.  Therefore, there a couple of things that need fixing.  Most important is being able to record normal H.264 video and audio without having mlv_snd enabled.  As far as I understand it, the mlv_snd module is for adding audio recording to MLV-style RAW video recording.  This is also what the module description indicates:

Quote
With this module, mlv_rec is extended by sound recording support.

So why do we need this module enabled to record normal H.264 videos with audio when using ML?  In the Canon firmware menus, the audio recording is enabled and volume up, but when starting to record H.264 videos without mlv_snd disabled (default configuration!), it gives an error that audio recording is disabled.  This is confusing and seems to be broken.  Does normal H.264-mode audio recording really depend on mlv_snd, or is this a bug?

On a related note, enabling mlv_snd but leaving mlv_rec disabled causes many ML errors to the point of disfunctionality.  This is a user interface issue, really.  If one module depends on another to function, then the UI must load not only the user-selected modules, but its dependencies as well.

As it stands, after a default install, audio recording seems broken unless *BOTH* mlv_snd and mlv_rec are enabled.  So if you want normal H.264 video recording with audio, you need to enable RAW video recording modules but disable the RAW video recording.  This is not only counterintuitive, but it gives users a default broken configuration for normal (non-RAW) video recording.

๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏๏

If anyone else can confirm any of the issues I have outlined, it would be appreciated!

I had Just tested the 1.2.3 on my 5D3 , Thanks for the Excellent work.
The raw rec was good up to 1920x1080x25p (Normal and crop mode) on Koputerbay 64GB.
But the MLV Raw doesnt work for me more than 1 min (4GB) and then it dumps some debug info about QUED something.
a sample of Logfile that was made to the root dir :

ML ASSERT:
hdr->blockSize >= (sizeof(mlv_vidf_hdr_t) + hdr->frameSpace + frame_size)
at mlv_rec.c:1990 (process_frame), task Evf
lv:1 mode:3


I have almost same issue as yours. At 24p 1920X1080, Transcend 1000x 64GB CF.
MLV mode with Files->GiB (exFAT) enabled: I can only record for ~11XX frames. ~4.0XXGB file size (~50 sec.)(read from "Status when recording->Debug). then recording stop. no bug info screen.
MLV mode, Files->GiB (exFAT) disabled. I can record for 23xx frames. ~8.1XXGB (~100 sec). then bug info screen pop, but it still recording. During recording, there will be a brief pause (~0.5sec.) at 11XX frames (~4GB file size), then keep going. It looks like there is a 4 GB barrier.

RAW_REC mode, no problem for 5 min. recording test. never try longer, no need.

For MLV, please report issues in the MLV thread: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7122

It's still a work in progress, and so far the issues reported were not 5D3-123-specific, but MLV-specific.

A1ex, do you have an idea how feasible would be to allow the magic zoom feature to be toggled on and off during RAW recording to optimise focusing? I'd love to have this feature as I believe it's more reliable than the Zebra option. Your thoughts?

albertgarciarue: did you get pink frames on 1.1.3 with latest builds? I don't see your voice here: www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=10443
So it loaded. I used a 4GB card and it loaded without a problem. The uninstall worked fine too :)

Now to locate the documentation and start reading it :)

I just had a slight problem that I solved, hope this helps someone else.

At first after following instructions, I thought my two 5D3 were bricked...
But then I realized you have to install the LATEST or nightly build which includes the *.FIR file in it.
Then it boots, loads automatically, and goes from there.

THANK YOU GUYS!!

I was already running ML 1.2.3 on my 5D3 that I'd compiled from Chris's repo. Followed A1ex's instructions and now I'm running wonderfully here. Tested disabling and reenabling the Bootflag. Also no glitches. Congrats to Chris_overseas, A1ex and every other contributor for this!
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 5D Mark III 1.2.3
Post by: alMalsamo on March 17, 2014, 08:10:01 PM
1) already answered

I had already lookd through this entire thread as well as did an forum search for the entire site to find the technical reason why CF cards are non-functional for booting ML even if made bootable via normal methods (EOSCard.exe or make_bootable.sh).  Seeing as you know that it was discussed elsewhere, it may be best not to spend more time in the 1.2.3-specific thread asking about it, but it is still not clear why booting from CF is not technically possible at this time.  Any links to further information would be appreciated.

2) H.264 sound works out of the box, no modules needed

The audio was broken on the March 16th nightly, but I just upgraded to the March 17th and now I can record audio on H.264 mode as well.  The March 16th build was flashing a "Audio recording disabled" error as soon as I hit the Start/Stop button to begin recording and it never showed the audio recording meters in Canon firmware mode or in the ML live view with the larger ML audio bars up top.  Only the menus in the Canon firmware would show mic activity unless mlv_rec and mlv_snd were enabled.

March 17th build fixes the audio recording being disabled for me.

Great thanks a lot!

Like on bitbucket issues, canon overlay on lv (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/issue/1900/mls-lv-got-overlay-by-canons) it's always present and dualiso module doesn't change the custom prefix (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/issue/1892/dual-iso-custom-file-prefix-problem) of the file.

I'll investigate to solve these issues :)

Uninstallation:
1) Run Firmware Update from your ML card.
2) Follow the instructions.

What's hot:
- bootflag issue solved! (p.s. some bloggers got it wrong, you still enable it in the camera, but you can disable it by uninstalling)


Silly question (maybe?) - I run 1.1.3 and toggle between 1.2.3 prior to this release - no problems.  If I wanted to completely remove the bootflag from my camera can I just install and then uninstall this version?  Then go back to Canon's OEM firmware and there's absolutely no remnants of ML anywhere?  (This is in case I need to send the camera in for repair or decide to sell it).

Thanks!

It does give me 30s to remove the boot flag. Do I need to let this run for it to uninstall correctly?

1)64GB cards are now working for first-time install!!!

(I only had to rename the FIR to 8.3 characters, not less)

Ah, I see why you think it has already answered.  I did notice that my exFAT cards were not working with the March 16th nightly  before the .FIR 8.3 filename fix, so I did the initial install with a 32GB SDHC card and thereafter made my SDXC cards bootable manually.  Since the 8.3 firmware fix, I can take a brand new, unmodified exFAT-formatted SDXC card and put the fixed nightly data onto it, and the .FIR-flashing process makes the card bootable and works great.  I am happy to report that I have tested it multiple times on 4 separate SDXC cards at 128GB capacity, all exFAT.  ML for 1.2.3 runs great from these cards with the new .FIR file to set it up, and it was also running when I made the cards bootable manually via make_bootable.sh/EOSCard.exe after initial installation on-camera with a 32GB SDHC card. 

My problem however is with my Komputerbay 1050x CF card.  I cannot get ML to load from this card.  If I try to make it bootable on my computer *OR* if I try to make it bootable using the .FIR update method (yes, even with the 8.3 filename fix), it creates a completely unusable card.  Whereas it starts as a perfectly mountable/usable exFAT filesystem, after trying to make it bootable via either method, the camera cannot recgonise it and asks to format it.  The laptop fails to mount the partition on the CF card when in the card reader, complaining:

Code: [Select]
ERROR: invalid VBR checksum 0x258ed093 (expected 0x30c2a1c9).
Furthermore, fdisk reports the filesystem to be type "W95 FAT32 (LBA)" after making it bootable.  Before, fdisk correctly read the partition table and detected the filesystem as type exFAT.  I have more SDXC cards around that I can always boot ML from, so I do not strictly need ML bootability from the CF card, but I want to know if there is something wrong with my CF card itself or the ML install process.



2) I bet you have enabled FPS override.

Oops!  You are correct.  Sorry about that.  I changed to 1080p/24fps in the Canon firmware menu and disabled FPS override.  Obviously audio recording is working again!  I just wanted to do my RAW testing with 25 fps + audio, but I guess that's not possible atm...  ???

Anyone else tried this card?

If all Komputerbay 1050x 128GB cards have this problem, I'll probably have to get one and see what exactly is going on. If it's only your card... it may be a bad card.

Since other 128GB cards are working fine... I'm not sure where to look.

I have a 128GB KomputerBay 1050x CF card formatted as FAT32 and I just tested it, ML boots from it just fine. I haven't tried it as exFAT yet but I presume that will work too. I think I know what your problem is though... how old is your card? The early 1050x cards had a problem that prevented them from booting. Here's the relevant post from KomputerBay support explaining the situation: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=8857.msg83814#msg83814  I emailed KomputerBay in mid-November (a month after that post) and they said that even then Amazon still had some of the old (ie non-booting) cards in stock. As a result I bought mine direct from KomputerBay instead to be sure I was getting a bootable one.

As an aside: why do you want ML on your CF card anyway? I prefer to have it on an SD card that's dedicated to ML. That way I can change & format CF cards at will without worrying about my ML current settings getting lost or whatever. Mind you now that a1ex has added support for retaining ML across a format it isn't quite such a big issue as it once was.

Here is my third test on this new ML version. This time I have decided to make a straightforward comparison between the H264 video coming from the camera and the Magic Lantern RAW. I have edited the footage without grading it, so to make it easier to compare the quality between the H264 and RAW.

You might want to take some time for reading FAQ, manuals and other messages in ML forums.
Access "Module" tab and load options as needed. Afterwards (and after restart) you are able to access those options.

Some issues/things not working with HDMI on this release (Tested with Zacuto EVF):
1. Start up with HDMI connected with manual lens lifts mirror but get stuck on manual lens warning message. If you just press canon menu button and step in and out of that menu you get rid of the message and camera displays live view with ml info.
2. Misalignment info bars are misaligned/too small check pictures: (The outer frame is generated by zacuto evf and markes the 16:9 recording area.)

This is with 3:2 setting
Was not able to make a internal screenshot of this misalignment with this version. However when i tried an earlier version of ML for 123 i got this misaligned screenshot. They seem to differ slightly and I'm not sure if the setting was 3:2 there as well...

Also had problems recording MLV passed 4gig on xfat card as other people reported. Is the larger than 4gig setting working correctly on this build? Seems suspicious that it stops there...

Ok, it has been a few days since the release of this update.  Is it worth updating to 1.2.3 from 1.1.3.NEXT.ML? Anything that I should be careful about if I do update?  Is continuous RAW recording working?

I did two full 64 lexar 1000x cards with MK III and got no problem at all with raw_rec. Extracted with rawmagic, used a AF lens (so can't tell about the MF bug up there) and finished on resolve. I could say it's pretty stable, but do not forget to make tests by yourself to see if it works on you setup.

4+ GB's archives on ExFat is working fine too. I saw there were something with mlv_rec, but raw_rec is fine here. Didn't tested with mlv, gonna do it today.

What I could say is: When in mirror mode and external monitor ON, the ML display go OFF. It would be nice to have it on LCD and triggered in some way to get on external monitor, like half way shutter or some other way.

But hey, the fact i can now shoot raw with LCD + monitor is just awesome and I know things are gonna keep getting better.

Tell me if there's anything i could do to help you with this new build. I don't know if I'm ready to get back on coding, but I'm getting tempted to and want to help out.

Thanks again!

TREAD CAREFULLY

Don't Know about anyone else but I had a horrible experience with this. As soon as I installed i got big greenish banding rolling through my images and a lot of solarisation. Uninstall alone didn't help. I had to Re-install 1.2.3 from Canons site and thank christ it worked because i was freaking out.

If anyone has had this or knows of something i may have done wrong  to cause it then i'm all ears.

so which nightly build did you use? Provide informative details so the devs can troubleshoot bugs.
There is a reason why its called "bleeding edge" because it offers new features and it comes with risks when you are willing to test these builds.

Yep, right you are. the build was the latest provided from the link at the top of this thread: Latest Build
Built on: 2014-03-17 20:56:54 +1000
Changeset: 48e7ddebc1b9

installed as instructed:

1.if you shoot outdoors or under a different light source is that banding still there?

2.if you change your shutter speed between 48/50 to 60 or another is that still there and does the banding behavior change when you change the speed?

3.if you do an in-camera preview of your footage is this banding present?

4. is this raw or h264?

this looks similar to an out of sync issue when shooting under florescent light when your voltage is 220 60cycles and your using 48 or 50 shutter.

this looks similar to an out of sync issue when shooting under florescent light when your voltage is 220 60cycles and your using 48 or 50 shutter.

That was my first thought as the banding is rolling. it's similar to the phasing issue you often get with refresh rates on screens etc or as you say different cycles. takes me back to my film days

The footage is h.264 and i did try varying the shutter speed to no avail.

Banding was still there under a different light source.

To be honest i didn't spend too much time pushing the tests because i didn't know whether it was a sensor issue and none of the usual tests were resolving it. Not to mention when i was bracketing exposure during some tests the images were completely solarised when the lens was wide open so.... um yeah.

I've only just started venturing into the DSLR side of things due to client demand. usually i shoot with Arri Alexa's, Reds or Sony F5's/55's so i'm open to any advice on optimal use of these cameras.

I'm thinking about giving the install another go but obviously cautious.

Only other things i can think of that may have messed up the install was the use of a micro SD in an adaptor but that really shouldn't hurt or maybe i put the wrong files on the card. I put all the files in the nightly build folder on the card. The Autoexec.bin, the ML folder and the .fir file. To be clear i put the files in the 'Magiclantern-Nightly' folder on the card not the 'Magiclantern-Nightly' folder containing the files.

Any Red flags there.

It really looks like some kind of phasing issue to me which means hopefully the sensor is safe to do some more extensive testing with but who knows...

c) I put .RAW again, restart.
d) After that shot, the colours of videos appear divide for yellow, green, like a Warhol paint, with out TOO MUCH details.
RESTART. Skipping frames. Restart, Memory Hack On. Global Draw Off. And REC in that conditions.

If you want some file or log, tell me where I can find it you in my card and I send you.

ML v123 working great. Installation - piece of cake,  THANKS A LOT!
x3 (2560x1072) is up to 60sec (more then enough for one shoot), comparing to v113 - about 30sec at most.
I'm not sure if it is bug or not. I think everyone has it:
   when in x3 mode, second frame is pink (no image) and the tenth frame is a couple stops overexposed (in v113 the seventh frame was overexposed in x3). Thus ten frames in 2560x1072 are not usable. As for the rest - v123 is much more stable then v113 TO ME.
Great stuff.  Feels like there is no limits there for ML team.

Hello,

Yesterday I went out and did some test. To be honest, it was a terrible day (windy and cloudy) I didn't have any luck getting the shots that I was looking for to share. Nevertheless, whilst post processing my shabby shots, I came across a few takes that were green/black and the rest were fine.

http://s27.postimg.org/fhtkkobxv/green_vid.jpg

I shot with,

5D Mark Free
Canon 100mm F2.8L Macro
Komputerbay 64 1000x
Magic Lantern settings: MLV Raw record, sound enabled, 1920 x 1038 (1.85.1) aspect ratio, all the hacks on.

Ps - I also noticed an increased in digital noise when filming indoor, this could be because my scene was not lit properly as I was just using my light bulb.

I am not worried or panicking, I am just reporting a bug. However, I would like to know if I got some settings wrong.

Hi,
I'm new to this board, although I read it quite a while. I hope I don't do anything wrong here.
I have a 5d Mark III with 1.2.3 installed and wanted to give some feedback.

Nightly 2014 Mar 17
+/- Tab ExpSim toggle on/off is shown but can not be selected
+/- Tab pressing SET instead of Q to enter values activates LifeView with ML Menues printed on top (you can still scroll), another SET and you are back.
colors differ slightliy between raw_rec and mlv_rec using mlvmystic (might be mlvmystic?)
"Auto power off" is often set to 2 minutes again after reboot.

But anyway, a great job!

Thank you to everyone who puts all of the work on this! I was one of the ones who waited for the bootflag issue to be resolved before moving passed Alpha 3.

I used the build from 3/17/14 last night at a concert. I didn't get to try much video and only used liveview for a few minutes tops. I noticed the battery seems to drain much faster now than with the Alpha 3 build even though I was not using ML features most of the time.

I'm not sure if this is to be expected but I thought I would post it up. I'll be working with video tonight at a show so I'll get to test much better.

have you gone through your steps again and had same result?
what does the frame looks like ? (upload a pic if you can plz)

Yes, I repeat the process and ML loose something in the color balance when you shoot H264 and return to shoot .RAW
And start to skip frames.
You have to take off the battery and start again.
The problem is you can't see if every shoot are fine.

Sure,  all extra Canon settings are OFF, as advised by ML 'best settings for raw recording'.
Highlights are ON, Global Draw all ON, Preview Hacked, Memory Hacks ON, Ratio - 2.39:1, 2560x1072, 24.000fps - maximum that I am able to film practically. Bigger then that resolutions gives just a few secs, which is not suitable for me.  2240x938 goes smooth continuously, but 2560x1072 gives more coverage on sensor with 45-60 seconds of filming, depends on sensor temperature, which is more then enough for normal shooting.  I use TRANSCEND 1000x, 128GB.

Hi,
on my 5d Mark III with 1.2.3 installed and Nightly 2014 Mar 17:

- Powersave in liveview can't be enabled or disabled (always grayed out), submenues work, Battery Level is only informational, but selectable

Maybe this can be made somehow more obvious (a hint at the bottom in green?):

- Preview mode ML Grayscale in mlv_rec works only if global draw is set to allow (of course)

Best results recording raw I seem to achieve with:
Global draw OFF
Memory hack OFF
Extra Hacks ON
Buffer fill method 3
CF-only buffers 0
Card spanning ON

This appears to be the highest working resolution for my camera: 1792x1008 16:9 @29.97 fps continuouisly without any bad frames (CF 128GB Lexar 1066x and 128GB SanDisk Extreme 45MB/s).

Others seem to get full 1080p @ 30fps continuously, but I absolutely have no clue how they get there...

16GB & 32GB cards seem to be faster than 128GB cards.... you may want to search around for some of the threads on different brand cards and speeds if full HD is important to you.

True, but I can't change cards every couple of minutes. That's why I choose the 128GB 1066x. In photo mode it reaches about 115MB/s solid, therefore I think a faster card would not change anything. Read speed is about 158 MB, which is about the max of UDMA7 as far as I know.

Maybe it is he cpu which is to heavily utilized in video mode, so there are to less cycles left for writing?

Could you please tell me your settings regarding buffers, hacks and so on?

to se how good is your CF card simply make a test in ML menu...

my kpb 64mb  have avg speed about 92mbps


WHAT IS IMMPORTANT is -----> Write speed (Buffer= 16384 K) if you look my picture.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/lp0w5qvn0pfmxp2/VRAM4.BMP (https://www.dropbox.com/s/lp0w5qvn0pfmxp2/VRAM4.BMP)

in my picture you will see  the  Write speed is (Buffer= 16384 K)---> 94.6MB/s

so that is the speed of card - the tasks what your 5d3 needs to run to make movie and what data rate can get out for raw recording.

magiclantern-Nightly.2014Mar17.5D3123 running on Sandisk xtreme UHS 16GB - CF: Komputerbay x1000 64GB exfat quick format
(i) First 50GB of shooting, monitoring on nexus 7 (DSLRcontroller) worked flawlessly, then started crashing alot. (on 1.1.3 it usually crashes alot from the beginning)
(ii) This build seems to have had an effect on my setup in terms of writing speeds.  I can barely get 1920x1080@25fps continuous with all hacks off and GD on.
Low level format and full ML reset does not seem to have an effect of any of the issues I am experiencing. Having some odd numbers in my benchmarks (not sure if posting these has any relevance) - will do some more comprehensive testing later.
So far, I have observed that there is a big difference in bench speeds between 1080/25 and 720/50 (in canon menu) all other things being equal. (720~65mb/s - 1080~85mb/s)  (this might be expected behavior, but I only did a bench in 720 recently)

(iii) Getting some Err 70 and Err 80 once in a while that require battery pull - have not been able to determine the conditions but they are much more frequent than they ever were on 1.1.3

Having a hard time determining a  good testing methodology. Would it make sense if we compile a standard list of testing parameters? This could improve both testing and the posting of results.
(Edited out some tired nonsense :))

Hi,
today I did some more comprehensive testing with my 5d mark III.

I benchmarked both my lexar cards, a 32gb 1000x and a 128gb 1066x on the latest nightly build for the canon firmware 1.2.3 and 1.1.3

I think the idea "eyeland" had, to compile a standard test setup is quite nice and convincing.
Therefore I took some time to think about it and came up with this setup I used:

Canon
Safety Shift OFF
Tone Priority OFF
Auto Power off OFF
HDR OFF
1920x1080 @ 30fps All-I

Magic Lantern
Global Draw OFF
FPS override OFF
LV DIGIC peaking OFF
Card settings Preferred card CF, others OFF
Modules: mlv_rec, mlv_play, nothing else

almost everything else is set to OFF
Benchmark in movie mode (live view on)

Camera was not moved during the benchmarks and the lighting was constant. I don't know if this is relevant, but it might be as the liveview is on during the benchmark and therefore the cpu has things to do.

I did all benchmarks three times, but got always the same results:

Firmware 1.1.3
Lexar 32gb 1000x      w   91.7      90.6      91.9      @16384k
                                r    122.3    122.3    122.1
Lexar 128gb 1066x    w   91.9      93.4      93.3      @16384k
                                r    122.3    122.4    122.2

Firmware 1.2.3
Lexar 32gb 1000x      w   86.3      89.3      89.6      @16384k
                                r    118.2    118.2    118.5

Lexar 128gb 1066x    w   85.4      89.1      89.0      @16384k
                                r    118.3    118.2    118.4



Next I did a brief test on the power consumption and the heat up of the camera, but these test were not really scientific as I took different batteries, relied on the display (temp) used a plain simple stopwatch and had to press a button every now and than to hinder the camera to shut the display down. Therefore take the result with care.

Anyway, the powerconsumption on 1.2.3 was much higher, the heat raised significantly faster.

By now, the datarate is significantly lower, the power consumption higher and the heat (37°C compared to 45°C after 3 minutes) also.
But hey, I stay with 1.2.3  :D I'm sure this can be sorted out.

Tell me what you think about the setup and let us compile a standard for testing.
And no, I can't do any programming, but if I can do anything else, like serving virtual coffee, I'll do it  :D

kontrakatze

Hi,
i forgot something totally. My cf cards were both formatted with Fat32. I guess this would make a difference to exFat, but now it's too late for testing today...

Should we set exFat to the list of standards for testing?

Something to add:
It is weird, the lighting situation seems to influence the write speed during the benchmark. With a lenscap on top I get repeatedly different speeds compared to lenscap off...
Could someone test this to be wrong or true?

So what's the final verdict? Is it definitely worth updating to this version or should we wait for the mystery update that might come out next month?

Post by: jafa on March 25, 2014, 07:50:08 PM
I hope the mystery update is a free C.500 to all ML users  ;)....No!....oh well.

In my personal opinion , no , unless you want the ability to remove the bootflag , then yes.
Ive found the MLV modules on both 113/123 not reliable enough to rely on , but this is no problem as I prefer the audio out of my h4n anyway and syncing is not such a big hassle , but I have had more stopping using  123RAW than I did with 113RAW also my camera seems to heat up faster and run higher temps if only by 3 or so degrees but the most noticeable downside if you can call it that is that 123 seems to eat up battery life allot quicker than 113 (I should add that is just what SEEMS to be happening it could all just be my poor take on using both firmwares).
So what am I running on both my Mk3's ?, 123 mainly cause I cant be arsed to revert back to 113 and cause 123 seems to be the way forward even if it is a little bit less stable at the moment , there are of course no more nightly s for it at the moment so im holding my breath in anticipation for what is next-if anything.

Cheers

Brand new 5D MK III (literally just opened it), formatted Transcend 64gb 1000x exFat on computer.  Downloaded 1.2.3 ML compatible, and installed.  Easy as pie.  Not using SD card at all.  I am fairly new to ML so I can't really speak to how things are working, but no need for 10 minute youtube install videos.

Shot some RAW footage at the upper end of the settings and it seemed to work fine - only a few minutes though.  Will test it out more tomorrow.

I think what you want to say is; there are overlays in the camera LCD (the viewfinder the the one you stick your eye in which is dark when the mirror is up) and there are no overlays in the external monitor via hdmi.

Exactly!

I tried taking various shots, 5 min, 2 min in full HD with .RAW ( I thought with external monitor .raw could be a problem but not, it's the same).
If you are using h264, and after you  want to use .raw, take off the battery and start again.
Last week I loose lots of videos.
The rest works perfect.

Hey guys just wanted to say thank you and chip in a bit.

I have just tried out my first RAW video on the Mark Free with a Hoodman UDMA 7 64GB CF and it went on until around 1:04mins without skipping frames. When it did, it automatically stopped recording. Checked temp and it was 41º up from 24º before recording.

I'm a bit concerned in the shutter count it says I'm over 100K (yeah, went on a timelapsing trip by the end of 2012-early 2013 and went berserk) and ML says it has too many shutter actuations. Is this something I should be worried about? Maybe start using silent pictures from now on?

Thanks again, keep up the good work!

Since I still have 1.1.3 I can test that one first and then 1.2.3 but: MLV has so many configurations it would be insane to draw conclusions.

A chart with only RAW_rec with the different resolutions in 1x mode and 3x mode on 1.1.3 and 1.2.3 maybe?
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 5D Mark III 1.2.3
Post by: a1ex on March 28, 2014, 11:16:29 AM
To simplify things, you can just use the default configuration and some other configuration with all hacks enabled.

Of course, testing all possible combinations has exponential complexity (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_complexity), but changing only one setting at a time (from the default configuration) will be also very helpful, as it will show the effect of each setting (and the complexity is linear).

If you have luma zebras enabled, remember they use zero CPU on 1.1.3, but quite a lot of processing power on 1.2.3.

I'll try. But there is an accuracy question. It takes a long time for one card testing, so its temperature increases. But the higher temperature, the higher speed. FPS overwrite is on?

Windows uses a write cache (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cache_%28computing%29).  The reason why you should "eject" devices before unplugging them.

This (http://alex-is.de/PHP/fusion/downloads.php?download_id=9) will provide a more reliable speed reading in windows.

Post by: Audionut on March 30, 2014, 07:59:17 AM
If you are using the card specifically for raw recording, and speed is your priority, you should probably use the largest cluster size (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_cluster) possible.  If you also do image capture,  then you may want to use a smaller cluster size to minimize wasted space.

You should also consider aligning (http://www.overclock.net/t/1226963/how-to-properly-re-align-your-ssd-hdd-partitions) the card partition.

I seem to recall a slight speed advantage to exfat.  But this may simply have been placebo.  Pretty easy to test this one yourself  ;)

Doesn't make much sense to me. What is the cluster size range we are talking about?

Typical RAW image size today is between 10 MByte (for older cams) and 30+ MByte. Default cluster size is 0.5 KiByte and therefore (statistics jumping in) 0.25 KiByte are wasted for each image taken. That's about 0.0025 percent (worst case for older cams). Drive with 30 GByte will loose 0.75 MByte to overhead if filled with RAWs.

Now cluster size 128 KiByte. 64 KiByte lost for each file (statics again) and a 30 GByte drive will loose about 192 MByte as in 20 RAWs. I can live with that.

Please explain if I missed something and of course correct calculations I've done before breakfast.

I can live with that.

Then do so  :)

The point is, there is a difference in wasted space.  I provided the reader, the opportunity to make his own decisions.

The wasted space can never be more then the cluster size, for each file.  So where we have extremely large files, such as raw video, the difference is virtually nothing.  But if the user is also using JPG (lots of smaller files) capture (happens more often then you might otherwise expect), then the differences, may become relevant.

Here is an overview of ML powers: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AgQ2MOkAZTFHdFFIcFp1d0R5TzVPTVJXOEVyUndteGc#gid=5

But is this true: 1920x672 with 60fps?

Small update:

- Magic Zoom fix for focus confirmation bars (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11137.msg109402#msg109402), from chris_overseas
- minor cosmetic fix for electronic level, also from chris_overseas
- mlv_rec updates merged from the unified branch (g3gg0)
- minor delay fine-tuning for zoom on half-shutter

Most of the other changes from the changelog apply to other cameras.

Has anyone tired recording the HDMI out on a recorder (atomos ninja,) etc.?

I'm trying out a ninja blade, this weekend. It works great with the 5d Mkiii as long as the canon codecs are frame rates are matched. The HDMI start stop is very cool it really simplifies the whole process. This function doesn't seem to work when ML is running, the camera records to CF but the Blade doesn't start. I also use an Okii MC1 to trigger the start stain over USB, this doesn't seem to interfere with the functioning of ML. Having a video file with synced audio is also a big boon!

I'm at work now but I'll post some pics of the rig later.

hello,

 Please, is it possible to keep this subject page (  Magic Lantern for 5D Mark III 1.2.3 ) prior ? not 1.1.3 and only 1.2.3 (except for comparation between these two ML firmware)

there is some (soon a lot) of questions and message out off concern here, and many responses possible in other forum pages...please take a time to make a search before posting here. otherwise, it's gonna be a mess soon

thank you. (from france)

and congratulation to the contributors...amazing work !

Long time ML user, first time posting on the forums. I did some test shooting RAW (1.2.3) for the first time on Friday and ran into a problem. Anytime we ran over the 4GB file size limit, approximately 50 seconds of shooting, the file would get divided up and look like this:

M28-1030.R00
M28-1030.R01
M28-1030.RAW

I then used RAWMagic to convert but I only get images that were all f#@$ed up. See link: http://i.imgur.com/quVjbAF.jpg

Should I be using a different converter software?

Mike, is the HDMI output with ML installed better than the HDMI output stock?  In other words, by using the external recorder along with ML are you recording RAW-esque level of detail or is it still the normal "mush" we are used to?  Thanks

Hi,
Love the work being done to bring ML to 1.2.3 as well as solving the boot flag issue.
I tried the latest build on March 31 and noticed an odd brightness flickering issue on the LCD.
My LCD brightness is set on manual, I actually felt that the issue was less noticeable when set to Auto brightness.
If you actually go to the Canon menu for the brightness setting, you can see the little white arrow moving all around.

I reverted to the normal firmware by removing the bootflag and the LCD brightness was stable.
I also reverted to the 17 March build and again the LCD brightness was stable. I am now back on the older build because it was annoying me too much.

I wonder if anyone else experienced this issue.
Thanks :)

Its 8 bit 422, so nowhere near raw but it holds up a little better in post.

The reason I liked it was that you effectively get a proxy with sound (you have to connect a mini jack, from the camera or ZoomH6 in my case, into the blade to get this to work) canon protocol has HDMI without sound.  This makes post audio syncing easy with plural eyes plus you can quickly show a client a clip that looks pretty good.

Using 5D III 1.2.3 without any crashes so far, but is it normal for automatic image display to be disabled with ML?  Before ML, when I took a photo, the rear screen automatically showed the photo I just took (for 4 seconds as I have set in Canon menu).  After ML, even with Canon menu still set to show image for 4 seconds, I get nothing on screen.  I have to manually push the display button to see the image I took.  Is there a workaround?

I'm getting similar temperatures, which is making me a little nervous.  I haven't had the camera shut down on me, but does anyone know what temp one would expect the camera to shut down?  It's definitely outside the specified operating temperature.

There are tons of comparison videos out there, but I still wanted to do one for myself.
Not a super technical comparison either, because I didn't set the normal H.264 picture style to be most editable, nor did I record with all keyframes mode.


I finally got a fast enough card for 1920x960 24p continuous RAW recording (Lexar 1066x 32gb CF).
This is using the March 17 build of ML for 5Dm3 1.2.3

It's worked quite well, no pink frames or dropped frames for me.
Recorded in MLV 2.0 format without sound
Converted MLV to DNG with MLV Mystic
Edited in Lightroom
Final editing done with Premiere

I have 1.2.3 installed, everything seems to be working generally, but I'm having a lot of trouble recording at decent resolutions at 50/60fps. I'm recording to a new SanDisk Extreme Pro CF card (http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Extreme-CompactFlash-Memory-Card/dp/B00ECEVFFO/) but I'm unable to record at 1920x672 (1920x1080 when stretched by 1.61x in post) at 59.940fps.

The ML menu footer says this requires 129.0 MB/s, the card is supposed to feature a 150 MB/s write speed, so what am I missing?! I'm finding I have to dial things back to 1344x470 for the footer message to turn green, at which point the predicted bandwidth is 63.1 MB/s - surely this CF card should be able to handle more?

Run a disk benchmark on your computer on that card I bet it's not even close to the rating. This is generally the same for all cards. Plus I don't see too many people if anyone getting full res shots at 60p only at 24/30.

It's not ML its false advertising... or wishful thinking...

Uninstallation:
1) Run Firmware Update from your ML card.
2) Follow the instructions.

- uninstallation is equally easy (update firmware and follow the instructions)


When I try to uninstall ML from 5D III (1.2.3) by going to Wrench menu=> "firmware version"=> then I get the message "Memory card containing firmware is required to update" even though the memory card with ML is inside the camera.

I don't get the "instructions" to follow to uninstall.  What am I missing?  Should I just go to "Format card" and choose "Format card. remove ML" option?

The reason I am trying to uninstall ML is I still cannot get auto image display after taking the shot, which is a real time-waster.

This functionality is working fine here.  Try adjusting the image review setting, powering off/on the camera.  Or, try resetting Canon settings.

All my issues seemed to have gone away once I formatted the card, reset the camera to factory defaults, then reinstalled ML.  Thank goodness this did not clear my C1-C3 custom settings and Lens AFMA values  :)

Thanks - what is a good utility to run a disk benchmark (Mac)? I've used AJA System Test and saw some pretty shocking results - with a 1GB sample file, averaging around 28-30MB/s write speed, and 36-38MB/s read speed. That could be a limit of running the test through a USB2 card reader though right?

The 5D3 is only capable of writing to CF cards at about 100MB/s, regardless of how fast your card is.

I'm not even close to that limit though - captures seem to drop out at around 70MB/s, almost 100MB/s below my card's theoretical limit.

I realize capturing 1080p at 50/60fps may be wishful thinking (Is it? Has anyone done it?) but surely I should be able to handle more than the 60~MB/s I'm currently seeing. Is there a list of ML settings that are critical to handling higher data rates?

Yes. USB 2.0 is good for 60 MByte/s data rate in theory only. Practical ceiling (overhead issue) is about 38 MByte/s.

I've been running the bleeding edge dist for about 3 days now. Im not into video so I use the shoot features only, such as bracket and interval. There were times that the bracket fired strangely, one frame every 5-10 seconds. Seems like something was eating proc cycles and sending the whole camera into a confused state. Had to yank the battery as turning off didnt purge the sensor memory like normal behaviour.

This happens in 1 from 7-10 sessions of turning the bracket on. Not sure if this information is helpful at all.

I can record 1920x1080 25fps continuously with sound on a komputerbay 64gb 1000x

However, when I am using my Alphantron EVF it stops just after a few seconds. When I change it to 24fps I can record continuously again with sound using my EVF. Card spanning will not help me recording 25fps...

Does this mean a faster card won't help me recording 1080 25fps with sound as the HDMI is basically absorbing some speed? In RAW 1.0 25fps 1080p is possible anyway, but I love recording sound along with my Sound Devices Mixpre-d fieldmixer connected to the 5d3.

Any suggestions to let the HDMI not slow it down?

Hello guys,
I know Im out of discussion but last couple days Im watching NAB 2014 from canonrumors.com live blog.
As it seems the new "fashion style" for videographers is to be able during shooting especially those who shooting raw
to can apply LUTs instantly via a monitor or in the camera and watch how this is going to look and take a taste before continuing shooting the rest.This is so exciting that I would like to ask if it is something
that we can expect from ML team. In reality Im thinking to paste a few LUTs in my SD card (5D3 owner) and select which I want to apply to my selected clip. Ofc this means that we must have flawless playback and with the limitation of cf card speeds I don't know if its possible.. besides that as an idea I would like to be able to change a few parameters into my camera before I send the files into my editing system such as: highlights, shadows, midtones, white balance etc.
Again sorry for being out of topic I just thought to share a few new fresh things that I saw at NAB, keep the amazing work ML!

Hi I'm sorry if it's already well asked,

what is the most stable ML version?

My main reason for ML is video autofocus.

I am hoping to get 4K video recording at some stage (here's hoping) ... along with autofocus, wouldn't that be awesome!

Also hoping to get f/5.6 cross type AF at the sides (currently only f/4).

If there is no autofocus i will use magic zoom to focus manually, but without a flip screen would be a big challenge (I use it 99% handheld)

Thanks

I was teaching someone to install and run ML on his 5d3 today and since I only have a 5D2 and 7D i was limited to the my experience with my cams.
Using the latest bleeding edge, I did manage to get it up and running. The only thing I could not figure out was FPS over ride.
Is is still buggy on the 5d3?
Reason is, I could not get it to "behave" as expected.

At 23.976 it seems fine however I tried lowering to say 5 or 10, I was expecting the LV to be so bright already, however it seems to my eye, only the framerate is slowing down but the exposure remained unchanged.

I checked in the exposure tabe and see exposure sim is set to movie. I had my 5d2 beside it and it was behaving as expected. Was there a setting on canon menu or ML menu that I missed?

yesterday I recorded ~250GB of raw video using 5D3 1.2.3 and MLV_REC.. I works without hangs. I had issues with my Transcend 1000X 64GB CF card with 1080p 23.98fps 16:9. Sometimes it recorded without issues but I had a lot of scenes ended after 3 seconds (first skipped frame). I had also problem on ~20 scenes with black level but I fixed it with mlv_dump --black-fix option.

Im having some problems over here...
I have the 1.1.3 version installed in my 5d3 and the nightly builds for it... well, when i click the firmware update button to install the version 1.2.3 from canon (with the new firmware inside the sd card), the camera goes to a loading screen and then return to the main menu and some messages like "DATA/FONTS.DAT retry, not found and you have to install al ml files" appears at the top of the screen. I already tried to reinstall ml, to do the bootflag again... but this message always appears. I searched in the computer for this folder in my sd card but there is no .dat file in there.  what i have to do?

First: What do you want to do?

Run your camera without ML, just updating to Canon's firmware version 1.2.3?
Format your card using your cardreader, insert it into cam, format it there, copy Canon's firmware file content (*.FIR) to card and proceed with firmware update.

I've been lightly testing the 5D3 april 10th nightly and haven't got any problems so far.

One question though. Is it OK to use the camera with a battery grip? Did read in the installtion guide that it should not be installed with one attached.

The advice not to install with a grip is just the guide being extremely cautious. Like Stedda I install, use, and uninstall ML with the grip attached the entire time without any issue at all.

So far the only minor bug I've noticed is that ML only reports the battery percentage for one battery rather than an average of the two. I did have a quick look to see if I could figure out how to add support for the additional battery to ML but it wasn't obvious (given my level of knowledge at least). The Canon menu and top LCD still work fine for reporting battery levels so just use those instead.

Post by: a1ex on April 14, 2014, 06:49:14 PM
Back in the old 550D days, there were a couple of guys who removed the grip, but forgot to put the battery door back. Result: they believed the camera got married somehow with the grip (they believed ML caused the camera not to start without the grip).

Post by: alphaandomegafilms on April 15, 2014, 04:29:35 AM
Please let me know if this is not the right place to report this problem.

5DIII
Not a major problem. It has to do with the crop marks. Global Draw (I've tried all modes) is on and when I turn Cropmarks off the Cropmarks remain on my monitor. If I turn the camera off and back on the Cropmarks are gone. I've repeated this several times and I get the same thing. This only happens when I have the HDMI frame rate from the camera to the monitor set at 60i.

If the HDMI out is set to 24p then the Cropmarks turn on and off when they are supposed to, but they do not fill the monitor.

Framing is perfect.

The only thing that doesn't work is the auto start recording via the HDMI trigger, this works without ML. It would be an awesome feature as we would have Proxies with sound already created by the ninja, with the exact start and stop point.

Older builds of MLV with "card spanning on" have achieved Full HD at 30p, however this is very early stages with 1.2.3 Firmware and MLV is also pretty new and still in the development stages.

At present the buffers are not writing at optimal performance, the Dev's are currently working on image issues and errors with the new firmware.

I only get 720p? When I change monitor resolution with the info button to get full hd output It won't record RAW but h264 again as i am not in the ML mode.

I'll double check this for you later today, I literally plugged it in and it worked off the bat I just had to hook up the audio.

In last weeks build the HDMI trigger was working too, so that when you pressed record on the ninja blade, it triggered the 5D MKiii to start recording Raw. This was a sweet feature I hope we can get this back. I have a OKII USB controller that triggers the camera to start recording, really helpful if the camera is on your shoulder. This has also stopped functioning, this was a real time saver just one button triggered the camera to record RAWand the Ninja to record Rrores with sound.

Hi guys, love the magic lantern software. I've used it since release of this 1.2.3 version and have shot maybe 2000 images with it over many many hours and tried most stills features and the only thing I had issues with came about last night. Was doing star trails and using the  intervalometer, and that worked perfectly. However, after use, even with it turned off, it always activates at half shutter.

It was ok until I first turned it on, and worked fine for 120x 30 second images and stopped as it should, but disabling it in the menu no longer turns it off.

What have I missed?

Put battery out and check again putting off. If not, format the SD card and put again ML. Maybe is a bug.

Nice catch, should be OK now. Please try any combination you may think of, and let me know if it doesn't behave as expected.

If anyone wonders why I'm sometimes slow at reviewing pull requests, it's because I smell this kind of bugs (annoying, but subtle enough so they get reported after many many months). This bug was introduced from a rushed merging in October 2013 (my fault, sorry).

And since I didn't have the occasion to use the intervalometer lately... you get the idea.

Thanks ever so much mate. Love your work with this system.
I know your main focus is video, but for for me, its added so much to my stills ability that i use every day that I cant imagine the camera not having these features now.
Specifically useful for me are the bulb timer and intervalometer.

To be able to do this in camera, while sat in the car browsing the internet is just amazing.

A1ex/Mods

Not sure if this should go here or in "Feature Requests"?

I did some testing this morning and I have confirmed that the HDMI trigger that starts recording on an external recorder, is not working.

I tried RAW_REC and MLV_REC with various different settings sound on/off etc resolution changes with no effect.

Im guessing that the ML code doesn't have the instruction in it to send the signal down HDMI to start/stop recoding.

From Atomos

Quote
Synced REC Trigger and Timecode
The Blade provides frame accurate timecode and start stop triggers over HDMI from many cameras, including Canon, Sony, Panasonic, Nikon, JVC, RED and ARRI. It also features LANC and rolling timecode trigger for those older cameras that don't have start stop flag protocols on board. The Blade additionally has tally lights to indicate start time.

This function works without ML running. It's a really good function as it provides instant frame accurate proxies in ProRes (with sound if hooked up correctly) to edit with and also frame accurate play back for anyone on set or even talent wanting to see how the last shot looked.

I realize that this may not be high priority, but if anyone has a moment this is a real kick ass feature, this massively speeds up post production and elevates functionality to that of a dedicated video camera with real time playback.

I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think you can zoom while recording.  Otherwise, yes, it crashes.

Whilst on the discussion of REC trigger, is there any chance the the REC_KEY  feature will be enabled on the 5DIII 1.2.3 build in the near future? (it seems to be enabled for all other cameras) I would really appriciate the half shutter command to start/stop the video. (So I can make my own external button trigger input)

I imagine others would find it useful to help develop other external start/stop controlers - possibly being able to split the command to sync start audio recorders or hdmi recorders?

Already put this in feature requests a few weeks back, but without any response. I wondered if there is a technical reason why the 5D3 is the only camera that has no rec_key options within ML?

It's out! (http://builds.magiclantern.fm/)


Installation:
1) Format the card from the camera.
2) Make sure you are running Canon firmware 1.2.3 (http://www.canon-europe.com/Support/Consumer_Products/products/cameras/Digital_SLR/EOS_5D_Mark_III.aspx?type=download&page=1).
3) Copy ML files on the card and run Firmware Update.



Can this be a separate SD card and not the CF card you are shooting to, or does the ML firmware have to be on the shooting CF card. If it can be a separate SD card is there a speed requirement for the SD card?

Is there somewhere I can find out this information?

-> Some technical facts

Ok so the MLV is the newer format with more features/info. So it hasn't yet merged into the 1.2.3 version? Or can you select the format?
thanks

The old way to get RAW, the first development was .RAW (you have that module too).
The last, with more advantages, is .MLV that include RAW and a lot of information to get more benefits. And right now is in development too.

.RAW doesn't have Audio.
.MLV yes, putting an audio Module.

Depends your OS, you should find a way to convert MLV to DNG.

Take a look in the beginning of the post.

Hope this help you.

Good Lantern!

By the way, in this new 1.2.3 I get a lot of fail notification on the camera screen using MLV. It is not skipping frame or the recording would stop by the settings. Nothing that I can notice when I actually watch the clips, apart from other notifications when I convert the MLV to dng in mac, saying unknown block, skipping block.... The exact message on the camera screen is: FAILED queue: (number)failed: (number) required.

Thought I'd post again.

Can the ML 1.2.3 be on a separate SD card and not the CF card you are shooting to, or does the ML firmware have to be on the shooting CF card. If it can be a separate SD card is there a speed requirement for the SD card?

Is there somewhere I can find out this information?

Hi everybody, I've been testing last two builds of ML, still not the 04-22-2014 one. They have worked very well for me, I've been shooting stills, and .MOV video. I don't have any fast card enough to shoot RAW video, so I can not say anything about this feature.
My question is: For those people that doesn't need to shoot RAW video, and only shoot in .MOV, is secure enough? In my tests I didn't have any corrupted files or frames, but I read at the begining of the post, that for video is better the 1.1.3 version, or this was only for RAW video?
I have to shoot for professional use, and I don't want to have any problem with the footage. And I would like to use the LV DIGIC peaking (for easy focus), the shooter fine tuning (to avoid screens and lights flickering), and the display information that ML has.

Thanks a lot to the big effort of developers, ML is an amazing tool.

As far as I know  (could be mistaken) there's no stable ML version  for 5DIII (yet).
So, I guess it's not a good idea to use alpha/betta/gamma test versions for your professional work.

Thank's vovkinson, I know there is no stable version for 5DIII yet, but in my experience testing latest ML builds, I find it is stable enough for the work I do. I've been testing ML during last two weeks, with no problem at all.
I just wanted to know, if somebody had any problem shooting video in the original Canon format .MOV, all I have found in the forum were RAW video issues.

You can shoot with the original mov even with ml. But if you enable the raw module its disabled.

So..every time you wanna shoot mov you just turn off the raw module. Its simple like that.

I found out the issue with my camera. I get a 'irregular battery' message when I load my camera, so that interrupted the installation process. Had to take the battery attachment off and it worked, works with it reattached after installation too.

May be important to include that in the installation instructions

I'm trying to find a solution to display correctly ML overlays on my Lilliput HDMI screen with no mirroring.

Full screen 16:9 image without any overlays :

Screen with Canon options:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/1n2iiw9vo2emxug/2014-04-26%2015.42.40.jpg

As you can see ML top and bottom bars are not displayed properly. I think screen width and height are set to wrong values. I was trying to change settings in Display-> Advanced Settings > Screen Layout but it's not a solution. I think top and bottom bar should be resized to fit 16:9 image and placed above and below cropped 16:9 image. Is there a possibility to add new screen layout to ML configuration? I can do it myself but I need a little hint ;)

Hi,

Sorry if this is the wrong place to be posting this but felt like the best place to ask.

Any idea why I keep getting this pop up coming up when I'm shooting raw video?  It doesn't happen immediately but has happened every time I've shot something in raw and requires me turning the camera off in order to get rid of it.

Not sure if it always says the exact same thing.. but it is always along the same lines.

I've attached a photo of the screen so you know what I'm talking about.

Depending on how big the log file is, you can copy the contents directly to the forum, using the code tags.

If it's rather large, there are plenty of free file hosts, and you can link to the forum.

I'm having the same problem. Please let me know if you find a fix or a way I can solve this myself.

Please let me know if this is not the right place to report this problem.

5DIII
Not a major problem. It has to do with the crop marks. Global Draw (I've tried all modes) is on and when I turn Cropmarks off the Cropmarks remain on my monitor. If I turn the camera off and back on the Cropmarks are gone. I've repeated this several times and I get the same thing. This only happens when I have the HDMI frame rate from the camera to the monitor set at 60i.

If the HDMI out is set to 24p then the Cropmarks turn on and off when they are supposed to, but they do not fill the monitor.

When HDMI monitor is connected to 5D3 1.2.3 in mirroring mode we can't display ML bars on 5D3's LCD screen because camera sets new value to lv_disp_mode. When there is no mirroring enabled lv_disp_mode is set to 0, when canon overlays are displayed on the screen lv_disp_mode is set to 1.. and finally when mirroring is enabled lv_disp_mode is set to 2 (with or without canon overlays). I replaced all pieces of code which check lv_disp_mode value with "(lv_disp_mode == 0 || lv_disp_mode == 2)" and lv_disp_mode (true) with lv_disp_mode == 1 and now I'm able to display ML bars on LCD screen with mirroring enabled:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/uf5oi7ln28w0879/2014-04-27%2016.06.44.jpg

It's not a final solution because ML bars are displayed also with canon overlays...

Do you know how to make crop layout show up in MLV_VIDEO ?  I managed to set it up to display  2.5:1 ratio but as soon as I hit the record button - it disappears and shows me the regular Canon's 1920x1080 screen.
Again it only happens in MLV_VIDEO,  IN RAW_VIDEO - everything is ok.

The M tab seems to be replaces with a triangle symbol tab.

Post by: Stedda on April 28, 2014, 01:30:38 PM
The camera has it's own thermal protection... as in Canon firmware.


I would not worry about 44C... electronics heat up in use. If the camera is on it's going to generate heat.

Also if you do a search you'll find many people with readings around 50+ C and it is thought that the sensor being read is not 100% accurate or correct.

You're not the first to do extended recording....


http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9673.0

Post 8 has graphs by camera model. You're well below the average.
Also see post 30 where it discussed the temps are highly unreliable and assumed to display higher than they really are.

Personally I don't think twice about the temp displayed... the camera will regulate it's self. I think it's a case of give someone more information than they'd normally see and they'll turn it into a big deal.

Also see post 30 where it discussed the temps are highly unreliable and assumed to display higher than they really are.

Personally I don't think twice about the temp displayed... the camera will regulate it's self. I think it's a case of give someone more information than they'd normally see and they'll turn it into a big deal.
Thank you so much Stedda for that link...
Well after reading i can say  - to bad that this temp info shown the way it shown.
if its highly unreliable why get people worried for nothing?

Going to do some heavy duty test, shoot something like 5 takes of 7 min long shots one after the other and see whats happened.

You need to read the thread and decide for yourself... but please try to search the forum/internet and find a melted camera or one destroyed by heat. You won't be able to because it's a non issue.

ML RAW has been around close to a year if it was a problem it'd be well known by now....

I wrote you after i read the thread,

I searched the forum for "temperature" and "5d3" but this thread didnt showed up. thank you for showing this to me.

i think ml should give the user the option to view the temp on lv or not.

Ok,
I took 5 shots one after the other 7 min each 1920x1080 24 fps with audio. temp now is at 55c (annoying orange background)  but camera perform good.

Something i noticed that happened twice out of four, is if i format the cf card on cam (komputerbay 64gb 1000x) when i come back to lv screen becomes black and i have to pull the battery out to get it work again.

i think it happened after cf card got full and record stopped. going to try to reproduce and report.

Also after recording 7 min it does not show the right remaining space on card - 64gb card does not supposed to have 59.4 gb of free space after 7 min recording.

maybe i did something wrong.

using last build.

Anyway regard the temp, looks like its a no issue.

David.

I noticed if you switch live view off and back on it'll show  the remaining space on card. Not sure if it's correct value or not.  Some "refresh counter" procedure would be required in the next build.

It's not a issue with 1.2.3 firmware. We need some code in mlv_rec to refresh it.

When HDMI monitor is connected to 5D3 1.2.3 in mirroring mode we can't display ML bars on 5D3's LCD screen because camera sets new value to lv_disp_mode. When there is no mirroring enabled lv_disp_mode is set to 0, when canon overlays are displayed on the screen lv_disp_mode is set to 1.. and finally when mirroring is enabled lv_disp_mode is set to 2 (with or without canon overlays). I replaced all pieces of code which check lv_disp_mode value with "(lv_disp_mode == 0 || lv_disp_mode == 2)" and lv_disp_mode (true) with lv_disp_mode == 1 and now I'm able to display ML bars on LCD screen with mirroring enabled:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/uf5oi7ln28w0879/2014-04-27%2016.06.44.jpg

It's not a final solution because ML bars are displayed also with canon overlays...

(replaced code: zebra.c, debug.c, menu.h, gui-common.c, lens.c, tweaks.c)

That's great! Having magic lantern overlays work on the built in screen while also using an external monitor is the one extra feature I want from ML. Would you share your version of the magic lantern files so I can try it out?

And all OK!!! a1ex the best!!!:) No pink or other strange things.

Full roundtrip from Chmee's raw2cdng 1.5.0.beta3 -> Davinci Resolve -> offline proxy -> Premiere CC -> aaf/edl to Davinci and back to Premiere.

Only one strange was happend. XML from Premiere don't conform right in Resolve..... Resolve sey's "the clip .... failed to link because the timecode extents do not match any clip in the Media Pool" But AAF and EDL work correct.

Congrats on the 1.2.3 ML achievements so far (the bootflag issue being one really important one)! I also noticed the "experimental badge" (I forgot the excact phrase) was removed from the 1.2.3 nightly builds.

I guess this is a stupid question, with no definite answer. Still, I hope some of you could share some thought about the stability of the 1.2.3 nightly build as of today? Many stability issues still needing a lot of work? Sorry again for posting this question - but it's so hard to get a sense of where we all are in the thrilling ML development. I know testing and contributing is the main factor and I will do that as well :)

Happy to report, the 24th April build is highly stable and can handle audio, 27 fps,
1920x1080 without any issues. Card spamming was off and the card used was 1066x.

Better still the video plays back on MLViewer 1.1.5 without a hitch straight from the card. Not so previously.

Few observations, the last file before the card fills up will corrupt if the recording overshoots the card capacity. Don't know how to handle this. Second, miss the crop mode for magnified larger size frames. Lastly, where do I get hold of the H.264.ini files to run bit rate variations. When I press the H.264 option the error is that the H.264.ini file is missing.

Hi, vovkinson (sorry for offtop - are you russia? :)) I use this "long" roundtrip, because this is the maximum quality and flexability trip... I make offline clip and edit it in Premiere, then I grade final edit in Resolve and then back for final edit/vfx compositing. I strongly advise you to read Alexis Van Hurkman - The Color Correction Handbook 2nd Edition. One of the first chapters cover this topic ;) Good luck.

Hi g3gg0,

Things are doing great with the ML firmware. I need one serious help though. Yesterday, for the very first time, I formatted my CF card as exFat enabled to check how much the card can record in one go. The setting on my 5d Mark 3 was ML sound on, 1920x1080p with the mlv_rec activated. Card was the sandisk 1066x 32gb. The camera ran smoothly for 6 minutes. Then the card filled up and the camera threw up an error - cannot replicate it now. As a result, I cannot view the recorded video on my camera with the mlv player. What am I doing wrong?

I am on the 5th may build. I have had this problem since the very beginning. The last file before the card fills up always spoils the party.

I'm new to ML so bear with me. I am on the Mac platform. Can someone direct me to a link that explains how to go about installing the latest version of ML for the 5D Mark iii firmware version 1.2.3?

The way I'd like to work is purchase an SD card for the Magic Lantern Software and record to a CF card (I guess letting the camera format the CF card). When I want to shoot still with Canon's 1.2.3 firmware, I'd like to be able to remove the SD card.

Do I simply format the SD card in camera, then mount on my Mac and copy all the files to it. Then run the firmware update to ML 1.2.3?

Do I need to make the SD card bootable or is this automatic?

So I'm looking for explicit instruction for ML 1.2.3 NOT ML 1.1.3.

I hope I am clear and making sense and thank you in advance or TIA!

Hi again,

I just hooked up an external monitor and enabled mirroring. When I record H.264 there is no glitch when beginning but when I stop the recording the video freezes for about 1/2 a second. Didn't check to see if that behavior happens when not running ML. Any thoughts anyone?

BTW, much of what made me take the plunge and get a 5D mk3 is due to the energy that all you contributors put into ML, usability enhancements, the raw video option and all. My work so far could not have been done without this. Thanks so much for your time and effort! I'll try to make it up by working at creating even better videos :-)

Cheers,

Hi, yes one ebay and one amazon, well am not saying Magic Lantern is bad . it is a very good thing and I do appreciate very much the work done. it' s that i 've find it difficult to record video.and to understand everything ..it is not easy..I have the camera stopping all the time  in 1920x1080..unless if I crop a lot , but i dont like crop so much ..depends what is it for.I can soot only 1729x 1008...The thing is that if i have to shoot something for work I would be very uncertain if to use raw with the last built 1.2.3 it is not so stable and i think needs cards to go with that does not exist for the moment.When I switched from canon 5d mrk 2 to 3 I thought was good think to do but actually  the 5dm2 was better to use it for video since there is a stable firmware...I did not get it first..in case I can shoot with the camera firmware no problem..it is I did not mind shooting raw..to have a bit more of film look.But we will see maybe in the next months there is going to be a more stable firmware for canon 5d m3.More over I can not use mlv with sound because on my I mac with mac os 10.9.2 there is no converter to dng or pro res.

But we will se..I might be lucky and find the right resolution...I am just new to this.. before I had a hached gh2 also..and was very good.,...

Walter,

I have read the first post many times. It is not clear. When I unstuff the zip file there is an autoexec.bin, a folder ML and ML5D3123.FIR which is the firmware.

Are you saying when the files are copied to the SD card and the card is inserted into the 5D Miii, the camera will automatically see the autoexec.bin and run as an installer?

Being new to this, what is obvious to you is not to me.

TIA!

I would have to agree. I have no knowledge of code or any of the inner workings of how any of this stuff actually works. Most of us are used to a button that says install on a Mac or PC and the rest is done for you. I would love to take advantage of ML but I always wondered why there are no official ML videos on the site that just take a novas step by step through the setup process from downloading the proper build to formatting cards all the way through shooting.

I've written step by step instructions on something in my field for people who have no experience doing what I do and I always have to be wary that they don't know as much as I do, and can't interpret or fill in the blanks like I would. I have to make sure that every step is "dummy proof" and listed out.

I've been searching through forum postings for months now and I'll be honest, I still don't feel 100% comfortable giving it a try. Perhaps it's just me, but i'm sure there are others out there who'd love to take advantage of this awesome feature but just aren't savvy enough to jump right in, especially when a Mark III costs over 3k.

once ML is installed successful, can you opt to use it or not when you turn on the camera or if the SD card with ML is in the camera will it always boot up with ML? I remember using the previous firmware you had to hit the trash can etc. Is all that still necessary?

Hi guys,

Im receiving my Lexar 64gb 1066x cards tomorrow and I cant wait to test out the ML Raw on my 5D3.

I just got a few questions if anyone could help me answer.

1. Should i start with 1.2.3 or try 1.1.3 first?
2. Where can I find the right camera settings for RAW on this forum? (stuff i need to switch on or off in camera settings)

Thx in advanced!

Hi Dan, I jumped right into using the version that supports 1.2.3. Seems to work fine so far.

I am new to ML for the 5d3 (I've used it before but never on my own gear or on a 5d3), and I was wondering which build is the most stable if I just want zebras, peaking, intervalometer, and controlling bit rate? I am shooting a project where internet access will be sparse for about 2 weeks.

I have canon firmware 1.2.3 and have no intention of shooting RAW video or doing anything more complicated than I have already stated.

If it is the most current nightly build, then great! If it is something else, any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks

is there a way to get rid of the "FPS override: …" text when recording RAW?

Disabling "Extra hacks" does the trick, although I think the FPS override announcement should take care of it's disappearance on it's own.

BTW, what is the preferred way to report (potential ;-) bugs? Is it OK to mention them in the camera related section or should I file create a Mantis-entry or some such?

A sure way to make the camera crash is to enable the 5x zoom, hook up an external HDMI display and start recording in raw mode. A static image was displayed on the screen, turning the camera off did not change a thing, but popping out the battery did the trick.

VERY GREAT JOB TO ALL YOU GUYS!!!!

I have a question: I'm still using ML 5D3-1.1.3. version, waiting to upgrade to 1.2.3. firmware because it is an irreversible upgrade.
Do the 1.2.3. version including all the features of 1.1.3. version?

Despite what Canon says, it is NOT an irreversible upgrade. Myself and many others have upgraded and downgraded between 1.1.3 and 1.2.3 many times. To downgrade just flash the Canon 1.1.3 firmware over 1.2.3 like you normally would.

The codebase for both ML versions is virtually the same, the only differences in functionality are listed in the first post of this thread.

Hello everyone...I'm sorry if this has been answered already but am a little stuck with this!

Just bought my 5d mkiii...and installed the 'Charlie Locke' version from post Reply #807...however I have deiced to use the latest version.

I'm confused by a few things though, and hopefully someone on here can shed some light.

1. I cannot seem to uninstall it with the 'firmware update' method...it will update with the card in and says 'boot done' smiley face but doesn't load the page that says 'move the mode button to change boot'!!!
So I have decided to just put the new version on the disk and try to boot it from that...nothing happens just red loading light!
What am I missing as I put all the new files on the disk and have 1.3.1 firmware in...but it doesn't boot. Do I need to uninstall the previous ML first? If so...how do I do that if it doesn't let me do it with the firmware update?

This is very frustrating.

Thanks for any advice

Reminder: the MLV thread is this one: www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7122

RAW and MLV are not the core of ML, they are just applications (sure, very popular ones). There is a forum area dedicated to raw recording (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?board=49.0), so please discuss raw issues there.

I prefer this thread to be about core issues specific to 5D3 (in particular, problems introduced in 1.2.3 that did not exist in 1.1.3).

Hi.

Yesterday I shot 2 and 3 min continuous MLV files with 1920*1080 25p with sound.
The card was 32 GB 1066x lexar.

The space in the card was misreported after shooting 4 min. it was showing 25 GB empty and then recording stopped and got this message "card file system error?"

The empty space on card was still showing 25 GB

I removed the battery and restarted it was showing 0.2 MB

Any idea? I know this is a bug report but I couldn't post to bugs page somehow.

It's not a issue with 1.2.3 firmware. It need some code in mlv_rec to refresh it.

Hello, I've been having this problem for a while and I'm not entirely sure what's causing it or how to re-create it.

Basically exposure between a photo taken in live-view, and then viewed back will be different.

Where something looks totally fine and correctly exposed in Liveview, I'll hit playback and it'll look dark and muddy, almost as if the screen's brightness and contrast have been changed.

I haven't really been testing out what causes it, and I can not confirm whether the photo looks underexposed when viewed on a PC, but I will say this is isolated to ML on 5D3 1.2.3 and it's the March 17 2014 Nighty Build.

This has never happened with my 550D ML, so I'm not sure whether it's a 5D3 issue or a ML for 5D3.

Cheers!

No idea how to reproduce, but post some screenshots from the Expo menu, the Delta menu (modified settings) and a test image from LiveView and QuickReview modes, both with raw histogram enabled.

There is a Canon bug with manual lenses, but that one shows the LiveView much darker than the captured photo (the opposite of what you described).

When I record with mlv module, after starting the recording, the live view just freeze but the recording continue ( I can see the time goes on, number of frame etc... ) I have a CF card Sandisk extreme 32 go 800x... Anybody has a solution ?

Other questions : which is right now the more stable version of ML ( for 1.2.3 ) ?
And what are the better settings to optimize mlv recording ?

Delete ML\Settings\MAGIC.CFG and start over to configure RAW recording. Load MLV_REC.MO *or* RAW_REC.MO, don't use 10x zoom, don't use Global Draw.
Results still the same?

Do you have an USB 3.0 cardreader connected to an USB 3.0 port? In case you have, run a benchmark (ATTO or CrystalDiskMark) and verify your card specifications.

you won't believe me but... After you answered me, I did the whole installation of ML for my 5D Mark III. The same as the last time.

I don't have any MAGIC.CFG in ML/Settings. So don't need to erase.
I first activated the MLV rec module only with global draw off... Liveview no freezing. So perfect.
Then I tried with MLV snd loaded... Liveview no freezing. Perfect.
Loaded Raw rec module ( without unloaded MLV rec and snd )... Liveview no freezing. Perfect.
At the end I don't know what was the problem the first time I installed ML but now it's working great with my CF, and I didn't do anything different... Strange.

The only thing it's the first time I loaded the three modules at the same time. Maybe it's the cause...

By the way do you have settings to optimise the recording ? 

Thank you very much for your help :)

It is. You can reproduce it and it will not work. Same effect like going around a pole left and right at the same time ...
You can not run MLV_REC.MO and RAW_REC.MO at the same time and expect ML working properly. Period.

Hi there,

I just had a strange experience with the 5D mk3 and Marek's build. The camera would show the ML menu when I pressed the trash button but switch back after a second. I managed to get all setting dialed in and recorded the set, but it appears the camera wants to negate the WB shift setting in irregular intervals, causing short (luckily slight) colour changes for a fixed number of frames. I'll post two samples in a bit. A few hours after the session the camera (with the same card and all) luckily performed without any problems.

Well, took the plunge and installing the latest build of 5D Mark iii 1.2.3 could not have been easier. I installed to a 32GB SanDisk Extreme SDHC card for ML only.

Two quick questions:

1. When shooting raw, what should the picture style be set to? In the past when I shot h.264 I used Technicolor's CineStyle. Does it matter now? I assume nothing is baked in because I am shooting raw… Color Balance, Picture style, etc. Or does it make a difference?

2. Is there a complete manual or PDF floating around that goes over each and every setting? If not has someone started one that I can update and finish?

TIA,

Great work!

Maybe I uninstalled it incorrectly. I ran the firmware update and made the SD card not bootable. Trashed the old files on the card, copied the new files to the card and then ran the firmware update again.

Is there a switch or setting I may have inadvertently turned off?

I can't figure this one out. This is the first time I'm having trouble with a nightly build.  The audio meters just don't show up.

Well I narrowed down the audio meter disappearance. If I do a clean install of the latest nightly build 5-20 for the 5D Mark iii they show up. It is when I enable RAW record and setting the frame size to 1920x1080, leaving MLV rec off of course, the audio meters disappear and are replaced with bars, (see picture).

(https://www.dropbox.com/s/92xo3j2n4g08yke/VRAM1.jpg)

When I turn RAW recording off, they come back again.

This didn't happen in the previous builds.

Audio meters only appear when you are prepared to record some kind of sound (H.264 or mlv_snd). Should be obvious.

A1ex,  it should be obvious, but they were there in the last build with the settings I had when set to RAW record. I understand it should be obvious. I was just curious why they went away. You can't record RAW and have MLV_SND on or you enter an ERR loop.

I prefer to shoot RAW as MLV_Raw my one day disappear and so go the files.

Re-post because i think it got lost in the mix and i'd love anybody's thoughts on what's going on here.

Just installed 1.2.3 on my Mark III and have had no problems shooting etc. One thing however i've noticed is that when i plug in my HDMI monitor and turn on my camera i do not get my ML. It seems to default to the normal Canon video monitor screen. I was able to access the ML settings by hitting the trash can but that's about it. When I go ahead and turn off mirroring on the canon menu then ML appears on the monitor however i thought that with 1.2.3 you were able to get mirroring.

thoughts?

Didn't get lost. Read the thread.

Hi Guys....great stuff going on with ML but i am wondering if there is a way to have the ML firmware on a single card that will work on both 5d mk 3 and mk 2?? Is it possible rather than having lots of expensive cards for each? :(
I would not do that. I would rather fork out 200 bucks rather than brick a body!

If you have two cameras, why do you intend modify the firmware for the people like me with only one? ;)
Use SD card for ML, are very cheap.

Why 200..? Buy 2 cheap sd - one for mk2 and one for mk3.  put ml on each card and leave them in your cameras.. So you only have to change the much more important and faster cf card.

We have 40 fps in 1080p RAW, test it out!

(http://a1ex.magiclantern.fm/bleeding-edge/40fps.png)

Other frame rate limits: 38 fps in 1080p H.264, and 67fps in 720p, both RAW and H.264.

Technical info here (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11965).

Tests needed:
- push FPS to the maximum values and make sure you can record safely in RAW, MLV and H.264. If there are artifacts, that's a bug.
- try all the video modes (1080p, 720p, 480p, zoom, photo...)
- write down what you have tested, so others would be able to focus on untested modes.

The update will be also in 5D3.113, and it's been already there in 60D, 600D and 1100D for ages (with some lower FPS limits).

Sorry if writing in the wrong thread or in another form inadequate.

38 fps in H.264 is great! Any chance adding sound, maybe in an extra file or so as a backup if needing sound for some reason and going back from 38 to 25 fps? I would appreciate this as another killer feature for my wedding documentary work...

Or did I miss something?

There was an option to record a separate WAV file. Will be likely added back once the new-sound-system (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/commits/branch/new-sound-system) branch will be ready.

I can barely get 3 seconds at 40fps 1920x1080.

There is a bug if you use memory hack: it records at 38 fps. I'm surprised nobody noticed it.

Also, just noticed that if you record on CF, you are more likely to get dropped or corrupted frames (in both raw and h.264). Yesterday I did all my tests on a SD card, and it seems a better choice when pushing FPS to the maximum value.

Can you confirm?

Hi there, I've been running a nightly build of ml 1.2.3 on my 5d since April 20th. Today I noticed that I was getting a lot of horrible crackling in my audio, I use a rode video mic pro. Interestingly the internal mic on the 5d doesn't get any crackling, only when I use the jack plug (even when the mic is turned off). I've tested different external mics and still have the same issue. Tested my mics on different cameras and they work fine. I tried taking ml off my camera and the problem was still there :/ also tried the most up to date version of ml but no good... Everything else works fine.

Just a note I think the nightly build I had installed was from 16th April.

Alex,
Have just tried this 24 may Nightly Build (for 1.1.3).

Got max 3-4 seconds in 1080p MLV at 40FPS (exact FPS) with Komputerbay 1000x 64GB. Nevertheless, I've got approx. 50% "corrupted" files (which I have not with same setting execpt 30FPS). Three different patterns (first one is one of the 50% working dng):

(http://nsa33.casimages.com/img/2014/05/24/mini_140524011126776625.jpg) (http://www.casimages.com/img.php?i=140524011126776625.jpg)  (http://nsa34.casimages.com/img/2014/05/24/mini_140524011244988764.jpg) (http://www.casimages.com/img.php?i=140524011244988764.jpg)  (http://nsa34.casimages.com/img/2014/05/24/mini_140524011317100571.jpg) (http://www.casimages.com/img.php?i=140524011317100571.jpg)  (http://nsa33.casimages.com/img/2014/05/24/mini_1405240113356100.jpg) (http://www.casimages.com/img.php?i=1405240113356100.jpg)

Extracted with MLVBrowseSharp from g3gg0 (but same "looking" results with MLV viewer on 5D3).

Same results with or without memory hacks, or with any of preview modes (by the way, is it normal I have a preview of what I film with hacked2 preview mode?)

If I can test anything else, don't hesitate,
Simon

See my post above. If you record on SD, you should not get these artifacts.

Also, if you have some slower CF cards, try to see if it helps.

I'll run some tests and recalibrate the max limits, most likely taking into account the selected card.

Hi there,
I'm on 5D MARK III 1.2.3
I've test the 40 fps both on slower CF and SD card but I still got drop frames on H264 . Considerably less then when I'm using a 1000x cf card but still there. Instead on MLV Raw i get 3-4 sec on on Lexar 32GB 1000X and 2-3 sec on Komputerbay 128GB 1000x with a lot of artefacts.
Alex do you have 100% drop free clips when using a slow sd?

Maybe a dumb question cause i don't really get this...I was testing the "timelapse through FPS override" scenario (ex. 0.25 fps) but this is the opposite. Are you trying to set FPS override to 40 fps while in Canon menu the video ia set at 24 or 30 fps...What's the meaning of 40 fps in this scenario?  I don't doubt anything, maybe it's just my ignorance concerning FPS override. Can anyone explain the goal?

Hi guys, I'm wondering how to move the ML to another sd card. I've tried to format a new SD card  and then unpack ML to that but then I put the new card in the camera the ML does not works. It seems that ML is tied to the sd card I installed ML from.
Please any suggestions.

If you want to see the dots appear around the areas that are in focus, you will need to press the INFO button until you are getting the ML display. Otherwise, focus peaking will not appear. It took me a while to figure this out.

Sorry, looking for some clarity on the FPS override and CF/SD card issue:

Alex, are you saying that the ~40fps recording (MLV & H.264) gives less corrupted frames if using SD card? Like someone mentioned, are there any SD card that are even fast enough for MLV recording at 40fps? Am I misunderstanding something here?

Sounds like you have an issue which isn't directly related to ML & FW 1.2.3. but potentially something wrong with the camera and/or card if the camera doesn't recognise your card.

Could it be that you have the wrong card slot selected (CF/SD) in Canon menus? Can someone tell if this actually is possible or does the camera check both slots for cards/firmware?

If you can't do it yourself you have to pay somebody who can.  I'm just curious why you tried 12 times if you saw it would not work after 2 or 3 attempts ?
 Did you try another SF cards, did you check all the setting ?
You remind me one woman from the past, when she couldn't  get something to work she would try the same way again and again until she gets absolutely insane and slapped her husband on the face :)

Do you already updated the Canon firmware to 1.2.3 ??? ML files 1.2.3 works only with Canon firmware 1.2.3


Guys I really really need your help. I must be missing some vital step but I've been over the instal procedure at least a dozen times and my camera just won't read the files. her's what I've done. Format card, download ML files 1.2.3  Put files on card. Put card in camera. switched on camera. Then nothing. Went to firmware up date. pressed firmware update. camera says you'll need a memory card to update I press Ok then nothing. 12 times I've done this and still nothing. What should the ML files look like? I've gone to the link on this page and copied those files which says ML nightly. Are these ally he files I need cause sit doesn't look like it to me. Need your help. Some guy tried to charge me £120 for the privilege of installing Magic Lantern and I'm getting rather frazzled.

Bad news: SD card interface in 5D3 is limited to ca. 21 MByte/s and there is nothing you can do about it.
You need a fast CF-card for RAW/MLV at high resolution. Do a search here and decide which one you want to purchase.

EDIT: 90 mb/s = 11,25 MByte/s?

Hi,

Used ML for quite some time on my EOS-M and I fell in love with the video crop mode. Just installed the latest nightly build on my 5d3. All seems well, but I can't find crop mode. Camera is in video mode, I even tried loading raw_rec and mlv_raw, still no crop mode.

Searched the forums but I must have missed where this was addressed. Any help would be appreciated.

Edit: not RAW cropped mode, just plain old h.264

I'm interested in h.264 crop too. I'm a little hesitant to ask questions here, cause, although I'm really excited to try ML, I'm a complete newbie. My needs are pretty simple: focus aids and video crop mode. For everything else I'm fine with the Canon 1.2.3 .... although that will probably change

I'd like to verify how to upgrade from ML 1.1.3 to 1.2.3. I know it has been answered here and there on this forum but I'd like to confirm to avoid some problems. Thank you for understanding and patience (I'm just one of those guys who freak out sometimes... well, very often as a matter of fact).

My understanding is the following one:

1. Take out an SD card with ML 1.1.3. (at least I keep ML on an SD card)
2. Put a new SD card with Canon firmware 1.2.3 and do upgrade.
3. Format another SD card in camera.
4. Copy ML nightly build of your choice on the formatted card from 3.
5. Put the card in the camera and do ML upgrade.

Is this correct?

Also, once I do uninstall of ML 1.2.3 as Alex described in the first thread of this post it will leave camera without ML trace. Is this correct?

Thank you so much for your patience and time!

Please read the post and try the ML on your 5dIII at your own risk  like everybody else here. If you freak out - use the factory setting or buy RED. Sorry about harsh words but this topic has been discussed a million times. Have some respect.

Hi,
Firstly thank you so much for this incredible gift that is opening up an already great camera. I really am impressed!
I use Manual White Balance a lot when shooting and need to be able to adjust it as quickly as possible. I have found the route that gives a fairly fast adjustment here:
Set WB to Manual using WB button on camera
With the camera in Liveview access ML menu Expo/White Balance/press Q/Auto adjust Kelvin and G/M.
Is there any way to shorten this so that a single button push will fast track through this process?

Many thanks

Richard

USE IT FOR TESTS ONLY AND ON YOUR OWN RISK


Thank you so much for this...this is the the answer to my prayers.
I really hope that it will find it's way into future 1.2.3 builds soon.

My only other remaining magic lantern prayer is to have REC_KEY enabled on 5D3 1.2.3 build - so I can trigger video record from an external trigger switch via half shutter command.
Is there a technical reason why it is the only camera to not have this function enabled?

Regards!

1= Will do

2= Canon menu trigger can start movie record on full press of shutter button only, not half press.
Sounds insignificant but half shutter would allow a very simple DIY external trigger button to be made for anyone wanting to make their own wired record button extension  - without having to find a bulky two-stage switch that is basically impossible to find in a very small form factor.  It would also simplify many triggering options for anyone making their own remote control camera rigs, controlled via Arduino etc. (for cranes/jibs/etc).

Cheers for the reply a1ex :)

Correct, but stopping record requires all pins to connect - requiring a two-stage switch I think.
I made a simple button trigger for the shutter and ground pin (or other pin) and it worked a dream on my 7D with the half shutter REC_key function. On press start, one press stop.

I (and I hope many others) will find it enormously helpful to have this function on 5D3 1.2.3 for remote record triggering.

Cheers a1ex (again!)

Stopping works fine for H.264, but for RAW it seems unreliable. I'd rather try to fix that instead of adding YAMLMO (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?action=search2&search=yamlmo&show_complete=1).

I made a trigger that works fine with ML raw too. I used a transistor that provided some sort of delay for the 2nd wire. First the AF has to triggered then the shutter release too, then they have to be released both in order to have camera controll.  To stop the recording, same thing.

It happens to work work for me after some experiments. Without the transistor it is not reliable at all.

What's hot:
- bootflag issue solved! (p.s. some bloggers got it wrong, you still enable it in the camera, but you can disable it by uninstalling)
- installation is really easy (simply unzip the files on the card, update firmware and you are ready to go)
- uninstallation is equally easy (update firmware and follow the instructions)
- EosCard is now optional
- ML restores itself after formatting the card (man, that komputerbay card is fast!)
- you may install on any card combination you may think of.

What's not:
- unlike most firmware updates which fix minor things, this one changed a LOT, especially on the display side (for example, LiveView is now quad-buffered and most of the display registers were changed).
- watch out for corrupted frames (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=10443) (from my limited testing, I'm not fully convinced the issue is fully resolved on 1.2.3 => for serious video use, please consider staying on 1.1.3)
- fast zebras not working, but can be fixed
- no full-screen magic zoom (I never used it anyway, but was nice)
- no brightness/contrast/saturation adjutments (registers changed)
- HDMI issues (possibly worse than 113, didn't try yet)
- no documentation (yet).

For photo use (raw overlays, ETTR and so on) it should be just fine (that's how I use it).

Yesterday I finished shooting for a promotional video in RAW. I've been able to use liveview mirroring with minor issues (sometimes I had to turn off/on to get the image on the other 2nd monitor).
Sometimes I had the just the ML menu black background and the overlays instead of the liveview image (pressing ML menu button twice fix it). Sometimes REC button do nothing, and there's always a 1/2 seconds span between pressing the button and actual recording.

Overall I've to say I feel this release really stable. I shoot 4 hours in these days with no corrupted files/frames.

I'll post this video in the showcasing forum =)

Thank you guys

Since my camera came with 1.2.3 installed the question is if I should revert to 1.1.3. Does "serious video use" pertain mainly to using the raw functionality or to video recording in general? For me H.264 recording seems to work fine except for a one-off issue. Are most people using the older firmware?

I am getting a strange preview following a shot.

It is sometimes on the pink background. The histogram I am using is RAW HistoBar (not the Full Histogram that actuall appears at the preview)

Rack focus: the easiest way is to mix it to follow focus: http://wiki.magiclantern.fm/userguide#follow_focus

Quote
Quick rack focus while recording:

   * Press MENU to save current focus point (this means I want to return here);
   * Use follow focus to change focus point (focus somewhere else);
   * Press PLAY to go to saved focus point;
   * Press PLAY again to go back.

The classic way works too. Set up the focus range offline, start recording, get back into menu and start rack focus. Or, while recording, just press PLAY.

Histogram: this is the YUV histogram, not the RAW one. If you have the picture quality set to RAW, and you are in QuickReview mode (right after taking a picture, not in regular playback mode), you need to describe the steps to reproduce it. Also check Canon settings to get a larger preview.

In last weeks build the HDMI trigger was working too, so that when you pressed record on the ninja blade, it triggered the 5D MKiii to start recording Raw.

I would like to know about this as well. It would be a huge help. Thank you for all your hard work.

Hi Thomy, 29:59 it's the limit. You can set in ML menu Movie Restart and lost just a few seconds.

Apologies if this has been answered previously.

In the current 5D3-123 source the backup_task (boot_hack.c) and dump_rom_task (debug.c) code both dump two 16MB regions from 0xF0000000 (ROM0.BIN) and 0xF8000000 (ROM1.BIN).

When I look at these they are both empty (filled with 0xFF).
When I checked the ROMBASEADDR for the camera is shows as 0xFF0C0000.

Shouldn't one of the dumps be starting at 0xFF000000?

I finally managed to compile from the source and when I changed ROM0.BIN to dump from 0xFF000000 I get something that looks more like a Canom firmware dump.

Thanks,
Phil.

It may be helpful to load these dumps in QEMU: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=2864
(basically you need to get the "gaonisoy" part at 0xFF0C0000; the QEMU log will tell you a bit more about where each ROM is mirrored)

Thanks, seems to be working now. Must not have looked closely enough at the original dumps - they're a bit different to the P&S versions :)

How do I get 1920x1080 output through the HDMI on the 5d3 running 1.2.3 while recording mlv/raw?

I only get something like 1620x910 which my viewfinder can upscale, but it is less sharp. When I record h264 i am able to get 1920x1080 out of the hdmi.

hey everyone - this is probably a stupid question but i guess it's an easy one for you guys to answer: i would use ML on my 5dmk3 but mainly for photography, am i right that most of the "issues" are connected to raw-recording. would you say that the photo feature is "stable"

I have only use the Dual ISO feature so far but ZERO crashes. Absolutely fine for me. But read other threads.

That is only possible when recording h264 or your recorder/viewfinder is upscaling to 1920x1080 (which is worse then h264)

It works only when mirroring lcd is on in canon menu, but that is not efficient with a viewfinder as you won't see if it it is (still) recording

I use ML on my 60D for video but was hesitant to use it on my 5D3 because of the bootflag issue. I want to be able to remove the bootflag afterwards.
For video ML 1.1.3 is still recommended over ML 1.2.3. ML 1.1.3 sets the bootflag, however 1.2.3 can remove the bootflag.


Can i use the following workflow to be able to use ML Video and be able to remove the bootflag afterwards?



1) install ML 1.1.3 the normal way, which also sets the bootflag on the 5D3.

(bootflag is now set, slow start-up when not using ML)

2) do your thing.... film using ML  video capabilities

3) upgrade firmware to 1.2.3

4) install ML 1.2.3

5) remove ML

(bootflag is now removed, firmware is back to Canon original)


Is this correct? If not, what should i do to be able to get bootflag removed?

The uninstall procedure is not working. I did as  suggested, install the ML card and update firmware and follow instructions. It just reinstalled ML 1.2.3

I then added Canon 5D300123.FIR to the ML disk (now both on there) thinking it would offer a choice and it just re-installed ML.

I then removed ML5D3123.FIR from the ML disk leaving Canon version plus ML files. This installed Canon again and it looked like I succeeded but when I remove the card and insert a new one it doesn't power up (I think the boot flag is still set).

I know the instruction say remove the boot flag but how does this happen?

If I can get the boot flag removed then Autoexec.bin won't be needed. Thats my guess.

Any ideas on how one removes the boot flag?
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 5D Mark III 1.2.3
Post by: rickj on June 18, 2014, 04:38:34 AM
I may have answered this myself. It works anyway.
I took out the ML card and replaced with another pre-formatted SD card.
Then I ran "Clear all camera settings on Canon Menu - Wrench #4.
Now ML is gone but I will not use the other ML card again until more progress is made on ML for 5D3.
I can power off/on and works like before.

I have it on my 60D and it works a lot better.
Hope this helps anyone else.

This does nothing to remove ML. The reason your camera powers up is because you used a card that was not bootable. Put that "ML" card back in and you'll have Magic Lantern again which means you did nothing to remove the bootflag.

Instead of blaming the software you should probably take the time to read and understand how the basics work because it's working flawless for the rest of us that do. I can upgrade/downgrade from 1.1.3 to 1.2.3 and back anytime I want and I don't have to set aside a "ML" card to remove ML.

you just don't want to read, do you

Uninstallation:
1) Run Firmware Update from your ML card.
2) Follow the instructions -> for removing the boot flag please wait for 30 seconds.

Fair enough. It might be because I read this from Alex 1st post on this thread:


Installation:
1) Format the card from the camera.
2) Make sure you are running Canon firmware 1.2.3.
3) Copy ML files on the card and run Firmware Update.

Uninstallation:
1) Run Firmware Update from your ML card.
2) Follow the instructions.


What's hot:
- bootflag issue solved! (p.s. some bloggers got it wrong, you still enable it in the camera, but you can disable it by uninstalling)
- installation is really easy (simply unzip the files on the card, update firmware and you are ready to go)
- uninstallation is equally easy (update firmware and follow the instructions)


I definitely didn't read the part about waiting 30 seconds.......
Good it's working flawlessly for everyone else.

- You should go to MODULES and selected what you need.
- Turn off, and turn on.
- After that, you should go to the MODULE that you have selected in the MENU.
- Press Q and put the values.

Example: you select RAW in MODULES. Turn OFF and ON. Go to ML Menu, Video, press Q over RAW.

NOT in mirror mode with 1920x1080 hdmi out, neither can I see the Canon menu.
In non-mirror mode i can see the ML and canon menu on the HDMI, but then I don't have an 1920x1080 output


How can I get a 1920x1080 output in the HDMI with overlays without using the canon LCD (not mirroring)??
I hope that would be possible soon!!

For the record, been awol IRL with school, kids etc, but just got the latest build from nightlies on my 5D3 1.2.3 and it seems loads better, the mlv format seems more solid now as well, and I've not seen any pink/corrupted frames in my limited testing, I just don't have one of those super fast computerbay or other cards that can handle raw at 80+Mbs.  It is looking really good otherwise from what I've seen.

Thanks for the excellent work.

I believe if we are a more people requiring ML menu in viewfinder when it's connected, DEVs can develop that function.

If you don't put the card with ML, you DSRL works with the original firmware.

Hello, I just installed ML on my mark iii, and I'm getting two horizontal lines of dots across the frame. It pops up for one frame then goes away, then might pop up a few seconds later on another part of the frame. It's always only for 1 frame, and the timing in between is random.

Here are 3 frame shots from the clip showing the lines. Has anyone seen this before?

The nightly build is running smooth. I don't consider it bleeding edge anymore, not for a while now, anyway.

Excellent work.

The only thing I've encountered was a file that would not play in MLRAWViewer even though it was showing a file size of around 2.8GB. I processed it in RawMagic (which by the way automatically detects spanned clips now! Excellent!), and even though RawMagic couldn't see the FPS as 23.976, it still processed it to CinemaDNG and I was able to open it fine in After Effects as a RAW sequence. I don't know why MLRAWViewer couldn't play it back but in the end it worked.

So far no dropped frames, no green noise or pink dots here on my 5D Mark iii running the latest 1.2.3 build of 2014-06-21.

External monitor or built-in LCD?

Other Canon settings?

From my experience, and I may be completely wrong, this happens before the card is about to get corrupt. The only time I encountered something like this was after Komputerbay 64gb card was used with non UDMA 7 card reader which apparently corrupted it and after that I experienced something like this. Just my 2 cents.

From my experience, and I may be completely wrong, this happens before the card is about to get corrupt. The only time I encountered something like this was after Komputerbay 64gb card was used with non UDMA 7 card reader which apparently corrupted it and after that I experienced something like this. Just my 2 cents.


Thanks, I went out today and took a lot of stills, finding a handful were corrupted. I'm thinking (hoping) that it is in fact the card. I have a Lexar UDMA 7 card reader, but the card might have been bad from the start. I have a new one coming Wednesday so I can test the SanDisk Extreme this time.



Can you share your config file, the steps to reproduce, and how often you get the issue?

Does it happen with RAW, MLV or both?

External monitor or built-in LCD?

Other Canon settings?

A screenshot of Debug->Show EDMAC, without any modules loaded, in movie mode, should be also helpful.

After getting some corrupted stills, I ordered a new card. Though it was benchmarking okay, maybe the card is going bad. I'll send you all the details if I still experience the issue on the new SanDisk I ordered. Thanks for the reply!

Please report if the problem persists with the new card.
BTW I've had a couple of Lexar UDMA 7 card readers go crazy and corrupting files during transfer. Transferring the same files from the same card with a different reader didn't show any problems and the files were ok, so I'd check also a different reader just to be sure.

All best,
Goran

Thanks for the heads up on those. I'll keep an eye on my reader in case that happens to any of my files.

I got the new card in today and everything works great, no more lines or issues, and the card is much faster. I can record continuously at 1920x1152 at 23.986.

Thanks for the help!

Is fragmenting the card an issue? Does it slow things down? I have problems writing to a 1066x 128GB Lexar sometimes. I have to take a burst of photos or work my way up to 1920x1080 footage with smaller resolutions before the card starts writing at 90MB/s...Is that linked?

Hello guys,
Im using last couple months mlv raw with fw 1.2.3 and Im experiencing many problems with almost every build.
My issues are that when I record a few clips I get missing frames and in many clips I record are totally green! The strange thing is that when I play these green clips from
my camera with mlv_play the clips are looking ok but when I convert them to dngs to my mac or if I play the mlv with mlrawviewer then the clips are green and I can't fix them back to normal.
Im searching in the forum to find a solution but unfortunately I didn't.Any help would be much appreciated.

It didn't help, what I did is format in exfat the lexar 1066x 64 gb, offloaded the modules and loaded again, record 1920x1080 and play the video, it worked, exit and deleting was possible, i did some recording in crop mode and I am back to where I was in the first place.

so far its working pretty well. I have also found that the first frame or two in a recorded sequence dont record. however this is indicated during record time.
Also at first I was unable to record 1920x1080 ML Raw with my Lexar 1000x speed card. but then for some reason it seemed to work fine and has been fine for the remainder
of the testing.
I have also noted the camera warming up quit significantly more than before with the older 113 builds.
But super happy though... would love to get 40fps working at 1920X1080 again. wink

If you have the bootflag already enabled, just upgrade to 1.2.3 Canon firmware, power off the camera, put ML (1.2.3 build) on card, et voilà.

I must have missed something because that doesn't seem to work for me.

I'm running 3115 then go to the canon menu, press firmware ver 1.1.3ml-2.3.it asks if I want to upgrade, I press yes then it goes to lack with the red light blinking for a while, so long that I have to take the battery out.

It seems I may be running the version 2.3 now but I still can't use the camera without the sd card in, is that normal?...

Format card using a cardreader. Insert card into cam and format again. Copy Canon firmware version 1.2.3 to card (cardreader again). Insert card into cam and run Canon's firmware upgrade procedure.

MLV RAW (1920x1080 build up to date of the post) it's working every build worst. Now I have to loose two shots of seconds to get an entire shot. Even setting all memory hacks and global off.

Sorry for say these. I know it's a very hard work for devs.

After I can get more shots with the same card. I did a full length movie with MLV, something impossible today.
I tried with other 5d Mark III , and difference CF cards, and the problem it's the same.


I am using .RAW where I don't have any problems.

I hope Devs can define how to stabilise MLV.

Thanks.

Hello, I discovered that when I press garbage (delete) button during rec, the borders top and above become transparent.
It should be really nice to have it always to prevent microphone or anything entering in the frame .. too late..
I would like to know if it could be possible to assign the magic zoom button during rec to à right button (af-on should be perfect) as I focus with left hand.
I love ML and can't work without anymore.

Sorry to break the current flow of your discussion.

But I got a question about the latest development regarding higher fps and higher resolution.

Am I correct to understand that the footage is no longer stretched? and if so, is 1920x872 2:20.1 at 48 fps possible?

And is this fps hack also possible on 1.1.3?

Thank you



Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 5D Mark III 1.2.3
Post by: a1ex on July 02, 2014, 03:10:33 PM
For un-stretched FPS: I think you can configure the sensor to output a cropped image with square pixels, by changing ADTG 0x800C and 0x8000 (but I don't know how to increase the resolution, so you'll end up with a very wide aspect ratio). I didn't test it at high fps though, because the overhead of adtg_gui is too large.

For the other question, it takes 5 minutes to try and find out.

Thanks for all the hard work, I've got the latest nightly for 1.2.3 on my 5D and it's working fantastically.

There's just one problem I've noticed though. When I connect anything to the HDMI port and set the 5D to mirroring so that none of the Canon info comes up on the HDMI out, the ML overlays on the back of the camera are not shown even though the screen is on.

When I go into the menu it tells me to press the INFO button to get rid of the Canon menus, however I've tried this and it still won't display, instead with the same error.

Thought this might be of help to you

Hello folks,

first of all, thank you for your hard work here! ML is great.
I used it on my old 7D and now want to use it on my new 5D mark iii with firmware 1.2.3

Im sorry, but I have some safety questions:

As I understand I have to:
Installation:
1) Format the card from the camera.
2) Make sure you are running Canon firmware 1.2.3.
3) Copy ML files on the card and run Firmware Update.

My questions: Can I make the update from a CF-Flash Card? I read here often only about SD-Cards?
My second question: Do I need to put the mode dial on a specific position (for example M or so)?
And at last, which build is safe to use?

 Can I make the update from a CF-Flash Card? Yes I did it. But it's faster in my case, when you have ML in the SD card and let the CF for videos.

 Do I need to put the mode dial on a specific position (for example M or so)? Use M. You can switch and try the other modes. But I use often M.

And at last, which build is safe to use? Build from June works fine. Depends if you going to try the very last things.

I tried it now and it works! I will only use it for photography, not for video.
I used the build from July, 01. I wonder when there will be at least a alpha version?

So during a timelapse (interval 4sec and exposure 0,5")  as you can see from the video at sec 7-8 and 22-33, the camera  takes two shots. I don't know if they are skipped frames or other (I have ML on the SD and I was registering the files on a 32GB 1000x komputerbay).  What do you think? Thank you

Hi,

I'm having some issues with rack focus on the 5D III.  I'm running the July 3, 2014, nightly build.  I'm using a Canon 50mm F1.2 prime lens.

I manage to save my endpoints correctly.  But when I run the rack focus itself, it seems to not go all the way.  For example, if I go from a focus range of 23 inches to 36 feet, starting at 23 inches it will stop at around 4 feet.  Similarly, from the 36 feet coming back, it stops at 4 feet.

I seem to be having similar problems with other lenses, though I haven't tested as thoroughly.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Joe

Trash button to enter magic lantern menue sometimes works, most of the time it is not working. I just get the first ml screen, but if I press the trash button and next half shutter, I enter the ml menue.

Automated follow focus with mlv_viewer loaded crashes the camera when pressing play to start the folllow focus ramping while recording. I'm not sure if this was an issue before, because I usually used the filemanager instead of the mlv_viewer before. Without mlv_viewer loaded everything works.

Audiolevel indicater within the ml menue with mlv_snd enabled is stuck.

I installed this nighly on a clean cf-card without any older prefs on it.

Just load the RAW module and turn off MLV Raw. I use RAWMagic all the time, it automatically recognizes spanned clips. It is great.

The major difference between RAW and MLV is that MLV supports audio as well as the Video.  Otherwise I think the quality is identical.  Both are RAW.  MLV is Magic Lantern's own RAW codec.  So if you always do separate audio and don't need a sync beep on the video to sync your audio up, then RAW is perfect.

I agree. My one caveat about using MLV Raw is it is a new codec. I prefer a codec that is established, if MLV Raw gets discontinued, you may end up with files you can't use later on.  I'm sure it will be around for a while, but I've been burned a few times.

The ability to embed sound is great, but I don't mind using a slate and double system-ing it.

O.K., I will do that. Thank you again.
I wonder if I want to use ML on several cards, if it is o.k. to copy my first installation from the first card to another card, so that I can use the same settings on every CF-Card?

Yes, you can!

I agree. My one caveat about using MLV Raw is it is a new codec. I prefer a codec that is established, if MLV Raw gets discontinued, you may end up with files you can't use later on.  I'm sure it will be around for a while, but I've been burned a few times.

The ability to embed sound is great, but I don't mind using a slate and double system-ing it.

The end result of converting ML raw/mlv is DNGs/CDNGs. The industry has long supported CDNGs and presently can support DNGs as well (ACR), but more and more post production apps are getting on board with directly supporting DNGs like DaVinci Resolve, a trend I expect to continue considering the popularity of ML and it's growing usage as a professional platform.

Hi guys,

I have instaled the last build 4/7 on my 5dm3 version 123 and try to record ML video. If I am not losing frames during one minute  the recording stops automaticaly when I reach 1 minute. Sometimes i see the message on display that says i am losing frames and recording stops. I am using Lexar 64GB 1066 and lexar 256 1066 cards. The problem seems to be the same ragardles what card i choose. Both cards are formated by camera.
Is ir possible to record more that 1 minute continuously? Any sugestions please.

Yes, it's possible to shoot up to 30fps continuous at 1080p.

Did you disable or set to 30 mins. the auto-shutoff feature in the Canon menu?

When shooting raw the camera does not detect activity :)

Also, did you do an in-camera speed test of your cards to see if they can handle the data rate needed?

Hi, have a couple of questions that i hope you guys can answer.

I recently upgraded from a 7D to the 5D3. Installed ML over 1.2.3 without any problems. However i only got about 60mb/s write speed with my SanDisk 32GB 120mb/s. decided to do a low level format of the card and also took the opportunity to format the card as exFat.

Do i need to do the installation (firmware update) again after copying the ML files back to the card? ML wont boot atm...

I ve seen threads where people install ML to the secondary SD card, is that something worth considering? Any pointer on how to do that?

Thanks in advance!

You need to make the card bootable. With new ML installs this happens automatically now, but since you reformatted the card you need to run EOScard on it, see here: http://www.magiclantern.fm/install.html

As for putting ML on the SD card, I do it that way because then I can just swap out non-ML CF cards when they're full and not worry about having ML on them. Especially helpful when/if you're in a jam and need to borrow/buy another CF card on the spot and can't install ML on it at that moment.

To do such, after ML install, just copy everything onto SD card, make it bootable and you're good to go (DO NOT NEED TO RUN FIRMWARE UPDATE AGAIN).

Great, thank! Can't remember that i had to do that the first time I installed ML on the 5D3. Remember i did that for the 7D though. Alzeimer Light kicking in i guess. Is MacBoot the OSX equiv. of EOScard btw?

They've modified the install process to make the card bootable automatically now upon ML install ;)

MacBoot seems to be equivalent as EOScard, but I've never tried it, see here: http://www.zenoshrdlu.com/macboot/macboot.html

As jimmyD30 suggests, you need to make the card bootable.

When you run the ML firmware updater, it will make the card bootable. 
So you can either make the card bootable with some application, or just run the firmware installer from the new card.

First time poster and had a quick wuestion that i couldnt find definitively on other threads. Just did a shoot using 1.2.3 on mark III using .raw module with a lexar 1066x 128gb card and I'm getting crazy vertical lines through the video on all dngs when converted using magic raw. A lot of people are saying it's the sensor noise pattern etc.

Is there a definitive fix for this? I was using hdmi out while recording but I doubt that would make a difference. Any thoughts or fixes?

Are you sure don't used DUAL ISO Module? Check it.
And to test the sensor, just take a shoot with H264  ;)

And it the problem persist upload a DNG frame to get opinions.

Are you using RawMagic?  If so, the lite version or the full version? If you are using RawMagic version 1.2 has a fix vertical stripe function. If you are using Magic Raw then I don't know what that is.

Personally using RawMagic full version, I have not seen the vertical stripes.

Reset ML to default values or better, format card and put again without save any settings.
Put only MLV Module on and try again in daylight.

Title: Pink noise issues
Post by: yodermk on July 21, 2014, 04:17:58 AM
Hi,

So I've been lurking for a few months but first post.  I've been using ML for testing RAW video, every once in a while, nothing serious yet.  Started with the 1.1.3 firmware, then just tried it with 1.2.3.

My biggest problem right now is some "pink noise" in a few frames -- I'd estimate 2-5 frames per minute.  The noise shows up in horizontal bands across the image.  Here is a frame as an example: http://yoderdev.com/photos/000063.jpg

History:  I had this issue right away with the 1.1.3 firmware, but eventually it went away.  At one point I recorded some 6 or 7 minutes in one clip with none of this at all.  I'm not quite sure what I did to change this.  In my forum lurking, I don't believe I've seen anyone else with this problem.  I used to see some reports of purple frames, but I think it was a different issue.

Yesterday was the first day I tried with 1.2.3.  It is back; the above image was from yesterday.

Another weird issue - yesterday I recorded a couple minutes and I think the record icon stayed green the whole time.  Today I tried again, and it started yellow, then red, then stopped after about 10-20 seconds.  I'm not sure what is different.  Global draw is off (it was on yesterday but I tried it both ways).  I made sure it was being recorded to the CF card, not SD.

ML itself is running on the SD.  My CF cards are KomputerBay 128GB 1000x.  Yeah I know, people have said the 64GBs are more reliable.  However, as noted, they have been working all right for me until today.  I have two cards, same with both.  I don't think card fragmentation could explain the sudden drop?

I'm recording 1080p, 24fps.

Any tips for either issue would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks, and keep up the good work!
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 5D Mark III 1.2.3
Post by: yodermk on July 21, 2014, 04:21:24 AM
BTW, for kicks, I'll share the script I'm using to convert and process all the raw videos on the card in one fell swoop. This is in bash shell under Linux.

for x in /run/media/micah/8F7B-5048/DCIM/101EOS5D/*.RAW; do X=`basename $x .RAW`; echo $X; mkdir $X; cd $X; wine /home/micah/bin/raw2dng.exe $x; ufraw-batch --out-type=tiff --exposure=0 *.dng; ffmpeg -i %6d.tif -vcodec mjpeg -qscale 1 video.avi ; cd .. ; done

The path is of course to my CF card.

I'll also note that the card is formated exfat and the pink noise appears in the source DNG files.

Post by: jimmyD30 on July 21, 2014, 11:34:11 AM
I think I've come across this issue in the forum before, but don't remember the discussion.

There's been talk that there's a problem specifically with the KB 128GB 1000x cards and ML, you can search and find out more. It might just be the cards themselves, as I've recently seen this specific card being sold at deep discount.

A few things you could try, reformat cards in camera and reinstall ML, use mlv_rec instead of raw_rec and try copying files to local hard drive then process with a different app like MLV Mystic, MLRawViewer, or MLRawBrowser and see if things improve :)

Post by: yodermk on July 21, 2014, 02:52:29 PM
I'll try that in the next couple days. Only problem with formatting the card in the camera - isn't it then VFAT instead of exfat, which would limit the file sizes?  Or is that not a real concern?

Looks like KomputerBay has 64GB 1066X cards for $95 - maybe I should pick up one of those and see if there's a difference.

You're correct about FAT32 vs exFAT, but for now doing diagnostics, let's go step by step. I'm sure exFAT will be no problem, but when trying to find cause of issue, best to eliminate as many factors as possible.

Yes, I'm looking at that exact KB card myself, probably get one or two. Here's some talk about it: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11428.msg122802;topicseen#msg122802

Yes it would be. But I have used RAWMagic and it is able to take the spanned RAW files and merge them for processing into one CDNG file. So exFat has become moot for me. I'm on a Mac. YMMV.
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 5D Mark III 1.2.3
Post by: jimmyD30 on July 21, 2014, 05:57:26 PM
Exactly, for me I prefer many 4GB files over few large files for safety/practical reasons at this point.

I'm glad that with using exFAT format ML can break the 4GB file barrier and it was much appreciated before the apps could process multiple raw files automatically, but recently I've defaulted back to the 4GB file size.

Yep. I got that message as well and actually my final clip had an all black corrupted frame every couple of seconds. Have only filled the card up once, so I will try again and see if the final clip is corrupted again, anyone else getting a bad final clip when they fill up their cards? I'm using a Lexar 32gb 1066x card which has had absolutely zero problems so far, so I don't think it was the card.

I just ran a test with KB 32GB 1000x CF card on 5DM3, shot .mlv with 4GB files (not using exFAT format) until card full with no issues.

Are you using a build which has Reserve Card Space option (creates a mlv_rec.tmp file)?

RAW and MLV are not the core of ML, they are just applications (sure, very popular ones). There is a forum area dedicated to raw recording (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?board=49.0), so please discuss raw issues there.

I prefer this thread to be about core issues specific to 5D3 (in particular, problems introduced in 1.2.3 that did not exist in 1.1.3).


edit:  Lets keep the further off-topic nonsense out of the thread.  There's no need for CAPITALS, finger pointing or any other nonsense.  It's no big deal, I'm always dragging threads off topic.  This is just a gentle reminder to keep this thread on topic please.

A developers time is limited, and it only becomes wasted when the dev has to trawl through a bunch of off-topic nonsense, or other discussion that is better suited to other areas of the forum.

Thanks.

I originally posted this in the nightly build forum, but as no response guess I must have put it in the wrong place.

>>>
Installed the 1st July 2014 nightly build (my first time use of the software) onto a Kingston 16Gb CF card to use in my 5DMk3 camera.

All seemed ok with the installation, and I went out to take some photos. I dont switch the camera on and off in a session just leave it on.

I was finding between photos that I was having to press the shutter button partially for a couple of seconds for the camera to come out of what seemed to be a hibernation.

After appx 20 photos, everything went dead.

I replaced the battery - no change.

So I then put another card in without ML installed - still dead.

I then put the original battery back in and the camera recommenced working (obviously without ML).

The replacement battery I had also tried, worked as well when I used that next.

Somehow the ML installed CF card had become corrupted I later identified.

Anyone else had this problem or any idea what the problem is. This is the first card I have had corrupt in this camera, and in years of using them never before a Kingston one.

It reformatted ok via my PC, then I was able to put it back in the camera and reformat it in there and it now works fine again (still without ML)

I'm not a programmer so am reliant on all of you guys who are for guidance - thank you.

Incidentally, I went to check the Camera firmware status, and only the Canon one is showing now, obviously not ML because I didnt reinstall it, however I see some topics referring to BootFlag needing to be removed - however my camera still seems to be booting up almost instantly - dont know if this is relevant information for you or not

I dont use the camera for video it is for stills only

I highly recommend putting ML on a separate SD card and capture to a CF card. It has worked and been very stable for me this way. And you don't have to worry about reformatting the CF card and loosing ML.

It's not in the ini. It's the first or second thing under the movie tab, on by default but overridden when you turn on RAW or MLV RAW record in the ini.

I believe the h264 .ini file is only used for bit-rate override, so it's not required for shooting native h.264, just if you want to use a different bit-rate other than canon default.

So the 'error' message you are seeing is normal and you can shoot h.264 without the missing .ini file.

Does it matter what size or class the SD card is? I remember reading on this forum at one point that it was NOT suggested to use an SD card because the write speed was throttled to the slowest speed card in the camera (between the SD and CF cards inserted). Is that no longer true? (Or maybe it was never true?)
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 5D Mark III 1.2.3
Post by: jimmyD30 on July 24, 2014, 05:20:30 PM
Doesn't matter unless you plan on using card spanning feature, if so then you're dealing with a 20 MBps camera data bus limit with the SD card anyway. The fastest write speed ML uses does not correspond to the lowest card speed in the camera, but rather to the card selected for recording.

hello all,
I am a long time user of magic lantern. was shooting a lot over the last year with the 1.1.3 version of raw.
now I updated to 1.2.3 and everything looked fine so far.
today I rigged the markIII with my tv-logic58 monitor via hdmi for the first time. all tests before were done without the use of the hdmi-out.
it is now not possible to record longer clips than 1min in mlv 1920:1080 25p mode. icon always stays red or yellow. the build is from 16th of july.
as soon as I disconnect the hdmi everything goes green and fine! what does the performance have to do with the hdmi out?
did I set up something wrong somewhere? checked everything, can`t think of anything?!?
thank you so much for every help! i have an upcoming job tomorrow and if I don`t find a solution I have to shoot in h264;-(

hello all,
I am a long time user of magic lantern. was shooting a lot over the last year with the 1.1.3 version of raw.
now I updated to 1.2.3 and everything looked fine so far.
today I rigged the markIII with my tv-logic58 monitor via hdmi for the first time. all tests before were done without the use of the hdmi-out.
it is now not possible to record longer clips than 1min in mlv 1920:1080 25p mode. icon always stays red or yellow. the build is from 16th of july.

next step was a total reset of the camera including magic lantern build 07.16.2014. supposedly stable.
same problem, no clips longer than 1min, though camera icon turns green now, before it stops due to frame skipping.
am clueless!!
only thing I can think of right now is that my new monitor, the TVLogic 58 needs more process power than my old one the TVLogic 56. Is that possible? Without HDMI no problem at all!
Am I right here in this forum by the way?!?

@a1ex: Has the ML overlay support when mirroring on an external monitor been addressed in the nightly build yet? Last I heard was from a couple of weeks ago (Post 675 on page 27).

I'm pretty sure it has not since I just installed the latest build (as of a couple days ago) and orange banding is still there. Maybe I should use this as an opportunity to actually attempt to learn this whole build system.

Ok, I just built the 5D3.123 branch :)

Now to figure out what I did and how to make it useful!
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 5D Mark III 1.2.3
Post by: TTGator on July 31, 2014, 12:40:11 AM
In case I can't figure this out before someone can answer it for me...

After building ML, is there an easy way to package everything to put on the card to run it? If not, what files do I need to use from the build I did? I'm assuming the following three files at a minimum? Are there any more? Do I just use all the rest of the files from the nightly build?

(I checked out the 5D3-123 branch, made the code changes that a1ex noted as being under review for the external monitor, and compiled)

autoexec.bin
ML5D3123.FIR
ML/modules/5D3_123.sym

Also, do I need to reinstall the FW on the camera through the menu or anything? There's probably a simple link someone will end up pointing me to that covers "after you build it, this is how you deploy it", but I haven't found it yet

EDIT:
It looks like changing to the correct platform directory and running 'make zip' is the step I was looking for.

Hello, I discovered that when I press garbage (delete) button during rec,
the borders top and above become transparent.
It should be really nice to have it always to prevent microphone or anything entering in the frame .. too late..
I would like to know if it could be possible to assign the magic zoom button during rec to à right button (af-on should be perfect) as we often focus with left hand.
I love ML and can't work without anymore.

Ok, I got my build installed and tested the HDMI Mirroring change. It works!

I learned a few things while doing this. What *I* actually wanted fixed already works in the current nightly build. I think some others may be confused about it as well.

What was broken:
Setting "HDMI output + LCD" to "Mirroring" doesn't output anything to the external monitor in the nightly build. The change I tested fixes this. (This mode is supposed to be used for external recording where clean HDMI with NO OVERLAYS will be displayed on an external monitor)

What is not broken that I thought was broken:
Setting "HDMI output + LCD" to "No mirroring" showed a bunch of orange banding on the external monitor when global draw is on. I actually thought that was what this change fixed, but it already works! You just have to go to the Canon menu and change the setting "HDMI frame rate" from AUTO to "24p". (This is the mode WITH overlays. It is already working in the current nightly builds when you change the settings as I just described)

Go into Canon settings, Custom Controls, and set the SET button to the ZOOM function. For transparent borders, would using the cropmarks here work? (or make your own in Paint): http://www.sawomedia.de/magiclantern/cropmarks/ (CineSco3 and CineSco5)

Yeah, actually that's exactly what it does.  :P  Had to go back and check.

No-mirroring only shows external monitor with overlays and the camera display is not used.

Yeah, I thought about that as well. Would be nice to be able to have it on both, but I thought it would need to be configurable because when people are using the monitor, they USUALLY won't be looking at the camera. If it were on the camera all the time it would be wasting a lot of battery when it's not wanted. So maybe I can try to understand the code that I built and see if there's a way to do that.

I'm not sure it's possible to have overlays on both monitors - there is only one BMP overlay as far as could tell, but there are two LV YUV buffers (each one with its own size).

Not to mention the code complexity required for that.

Hi Guys

I've been wanting to try Magic Lantern for a while. The only thing holding me back was not being able to uninstall completely.

Just wanted to know if that problem has been solved for the 5D Mark III. If so I will give it a whirl and definitely contribute feedback.

Also, when downgrading to the old firmware, is there still that horrible sleep lag that people were referring to in the past?

thanks

Hi Everyone,

I am really green here and I have a 5d m3. I am not a programmer or have any knowledge to do my own coding.  I see on the main page that the most recent stable build is now 2 years old and does not list m3 as compatible. My question is, should I wait for a stable build that lists the m3 or can I safely install the latest nightly build.  I realize that I make the final decision and accept all responsibility but would love some guidance.

I saw a post asking about the issue of not being able to completely uninstall.  What impact will this have if I take out the card and want to use the Canon firmware afterwards.

Don't wait for official stable release, else you may never install. The nighties are very stable, sometimes minor glitch, but fixed quickly.

No problem on complete ML uninstall including boot flag :)

Thank you JimmyD30, I will download directly.  I guess then I should log in regularly and get the newest nightly?

I have been reading the install guide and I would like to confirm that I need to install V2.3 first and then install the nightly build.  This should not be a problem even though 2.3 does not list M3 as a compatible camera?

Do I need to downgrade my canon firmware, install 2.3, upgrade firmware, upgrade ML?

Post by: Audionut on August 07, 2014, 03:38:01 AM
(http://a1ex.magiclantern.fm/bleeding-edge/new-installer.png)

Installation:
1) Format the card from the camera.
2) Make sure you are running Canon firmware 1.2.3 (http://www.canon-europe.com/Support/Consumer_Products/products/cameras/Digital_SLR/EOS_5D_Mark_III.aspx?type=download&page=1).
3) Copy ML files (http://builds.magiclantern.fm/) on the card and run Firmware Update.

Uninstallation:
1) Run Firmware Update from your ML card.
2) Follow the instructions.

Just follow the instructions from Audionut, it's very simple:

INSTALLATION OF MAGIC LANTERN
1. Make sure your Canon Mark iii has the latest firmware 1.2.3 installed.
2. Take out CF card from camera.
3. Format SD card and download Magic Lantern files  builds.magiclantern.fm/#/ (http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/)
4. Select platform from drop down '5D3.123'.
5. Unzip the file 'magiclantern-Nightly and copy the unzipped folder contents 'autoexec.bin', 'ML' and 'ML5D3123.FIR' to the SD card.
6. Run the Firmware Update from Canon's menu.
7. After restart insert CF card and press trash can symbol to open Magic Lantern interface allowing a moment for installation.
8. Go to the Modules section in the ML interface and check these fields 'file_man', mlv_play', mlv_rec', mlv_snd' and then restart your camera.
9. The camera will now shoot Raw footage using the mlv codec.

Go to the wrench icon (Prefs.) Then under Misc key settings enable sticky HalfShutter.
Then press half shutter button halfway down before recording this will prevent the camera from thinking it's idle.

I'm using magiclantern-Nightly.2014Aug07.5D3123 and I've noticed an odd problem with my camera.  It refuses to turn itself on for short periods.  After turning on/off opening the battery door, changing batteries, it will restart.  This happens after I have left my camera for a while.  Sorry I can't be more precise in what causes it and what "fixes" it.

At first I had just assumed that my battery had run flat.  This happened several times today so I thought that ML was draining the battery.  No.  The battery was fine.  80% charged.

I have reverted to standard Canon 1.2.3 firmware and it's all OK.

HUGE thank you for implementing HDMI monitor support in current build > magiclantern-Nightly.2014Aug07.5D3123
I'm using Zacuto EVF monitor in non-mirrored mode to give me display that I'm used to having on rear LCD, enabling me remote framing with ML menu that is scaled correctly on the EVF.
The Zacuto has 5d3 camera scale preset that gets it displaying properly once the ML display aspect is set to 16x9TB display.

For me this is a very welcome breakthrough, as now (with this monitor at least) - the EVF can be positioned anywhere, while still giving all the familiar ML display and correct frame line scaling.

Great work A1ex and all supporting code wizards!

I'm using Zacuto EVF monitor in non-mirrored mode to give me display that I'm used to having on rear LCD, enabling me remote framing with ML menu that is scaled correctly on the EVF.
The Zacuto has 5d3 camera scale preset that gets it displaying properly once the ML display aspect is set to 16x9TB display.

For me this is a very welcome breakthrough, as now (with this monitor at least) - the EVF can be positioned anywhere, while still giving all the familiar ML display and correct frame line scaling.

Great work A1ex and all supporting code wizards!

Yes this is great, works for me too =). But I have to choose 3:2 t/b for alignment on my Zacuto EVF. You sure about 16:9?

BUILD 08/08

HDMI works perfect! and automatic when you turn camera ON.

Mirror: ML in LCD (Fantastic!) and Full Screen in LED Monitor FULL HD.
No Mirror: ML in the Monitor. BLack in LCD.

Continous recording MLV 1920x1080  25P (Computerbay 64 1000x) Global Draw ON.
1 Minute Recording MLV 1920x1154 25P

- No references BARS when you press REC (Is this correct?).
- MLV PLAY:  black screen with the name of files and frames counting (Bug?).

The best build up to date for me!

Congrats!

Go to the wrench icon (Prefs.) Then under Misc key settings enable sticky HalfShutter.
Then press half shutter button halfway down before recording this will prevent the camera from thinking it's idle.

Does not work - at least for me   :-\

That is what seems to work best for me...16x9 t/b and the Zacuto camera scale preset set to 5d3.
I'm using non-mirrored, as I prefer just to have all the menu/frame lines all within the EVF display.

Hi,

I am new to all this and want to try this with my Canon 5D mark iii.

One question.  How do I unzip the file downloaded file?  I am using Windows 7 and it does not recognise the zip file.  The error comes up as, "Windows cannot open the folder. The compressed (zipped) folder is invalid".  I have also tried right-clicking on the zipped file and selecting "Extract here".  And I have tried WinRAR (v 4.20 (64-bit) which gives me the error "Unexpected end of archive".

Help?! :-)

Ever since I got my camera I've been getting these terrible flickering on all my shots(after installing magic lantern) And I cannot figure out why. I first downgraded to 1.1.3, had flickering, then upgraded to 1.2.3 and still flickering occurs in my videos. PLEASE HELP, PPLLEEAASSEE!!

Have you tried with a lower size, like 1280x720?

THANK YOU FOR RESPONDING BUDAFILMS

No I have not used a lower Res, I will do that immediately. If it is the card, is there a card that can do 1920? Or a way around it for the card that I have like maybe turning some of the other unnecessary options/settings off so the card can handle 1920?
I am using a 1066x 32GB UDMA 7 lexar professional CF
Max. Read Speed 160 MB/s
Max. Write Speed 155 MB/s


I don't understand, In the ML settings it says for 1920 you need a card that can record 82.9MB/s and this card obviously is capable of that or atleast thats what lexar/B&H states.

Hi all,

What software do you use to unzip the ML file?  I have tried native Windows 7 (64 bit) and also WinRAR v4.2, but neither work and come up with errors (see my previous posts up this page.

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated as I have never had any problems with unzipping files.

BUDAFILMS, I just remembered that my settings are set to stop recording if frame skips/drops
so I guess its not dropped frames.

ok so here is what I did so far, I recorded about 20 seconds of the following below
1920 RAW
720 RAW
1920 MLV RAW
720 MLV RAW
1920 RAW gd off

in all these cases NONE OF THEM dropped frames or flickered. I got them all in each on its own timeline in DAVINCI RESOLVE 10 and watched them in "BMD Film" mode (23.976) as normal and they all looked fine UNTIL I started color grade them, all of the sudden playback starts flickering/frame skipping. VERY BAZZARE. So I reset the colors back to washed out raw and hit play it stopped flickering/skipping.

I took these footages in photoshop camerraw and color graded the footage and hit playback and WALLA NO flickering or skipping. So whats going on here with davinci Resolve and these DNG files?

any ideas guys?

Hey guys,

I recently installed the nightly build from July the 30th and after that I keep getting corrupted raw photos out of my 5D mk III even after deinstalling Magic lantern.

They look like this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m7fpfi9otrgj89c/8U3A0769.jpg

So not all pictures are corrupted. Like 2 out of 10 are perfectly fine. My question is wether that is a known problem and how I can fix it. The embedded JPEGs from the raw photos are perfectly fine. The raw itself is corrupted. Because of this I don't think that the sensor is broken.

I deinstalled Magic lantern through the firmware update process and took the photo in the link above. Still corrupted. I uploaded the raw version of the photo too, so you can see for yourself: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wgucqrl2pidj9q4/8U3A0769.CR2

The recorded raw videos were perfectly fine, without any corruption at all.

Thx in advance for every helpful answer

The only Idea before a Dev analysing your RAW file, it's about your discrete graphic card or your timeline fps setting.
The DNG's extracted for ACR and DaVINCI are the same, and as you say it's just a problem with Resolve.
I only use Resolve and with the last build and the lats before I don't have any problem like that.

Yes I tried that, nothing better. But even after deinstalling ML I keep getting corrupted frames. I'm a little worried that I might have killed something.

Whenever I take JPGs they're just fine. Like you would expect. But when shooting raw, these weird issues appear.

@Davdav: Literally thousands of Mac and PC users didn't have any problems unzipping ML files like you have. No matter which program is used ...
It is a pretty simple task to unzip ML contents. No features included which may cause troubles.

The problem must be related to your PC. After downloading the file, disconnect from the net, disable all additional firewall software, internet protection, virus scan and reboot. Then try to extract the files again.

Results? (After enabling all the protection stuff and reconnecting to the net, of course)

EDIT: You may want to download something like "MD5 File Hasher" and check if the checksum fits.

Yeah it is definitely a davinci resolve issue. I typed in davinci RAw file flickering/frame skipping and I FOUND a bunch of people with same issue. So I'll have to deal with it by grading them in somewhere else other than davinci, sucks because I was just getting the hang of davinci. Well, I rather have a broken davinci than a broken camera so its all good.

the card is good, its Davinci Resolve. Found a bunch of forums on the same issue. I was watching some footages in my Premiere pro project. Some of my videos aren't flickering and some later ones(in the same project) are. So I was confused at first what was the difference between the earlier footages and the later ones. Ah I realized I graded them in 2 different places. Earlier ones in CameraRaw and later ones(flickering ones) in Davinci. A lightbulb went on and I did some more tests and walla it is Davinci causing the issue. So I uninstalled Davinci completely and used aftereffects and some extra plugins like red giant. I will probably get Davinci Resolve sometime in the future and I hope by then the v11 will work properly. Btw I was using the v10.

So after uninstalling Magic lantern I downgraded to official canon firmware 1.1.3 testwise. After that all the raw problems were gone. I got normal raw photos, like they're supposed to be. Then I updated to official canon firmware 1.2.3 normally and the problems were present again. So that means I got raw photo problems on 1.2.3 after uninstalling ml but on 1.1.3 they're gone. I think, that something didn't get uninstalled properly. The problems are not present in 1.1.3 because they ly in some area, which got affected by the 1.2.3 update.

Anybody got a hint for me, which infos I could provide, to help me out here?

I formatted the card in pc and camera multiple times. The frames stay corrupted. My other two cards work fine now. It seems like I killed my CF card. Sadly it was an expensive one Sandisk extreme pro 64gb 160 MB/s.

I tried deleting the partition and making a new one, formating to exfat from scratch. Same problem

The sort of corruption you're seeing is one I have experienced before. It is data corruption in the files themselves and doesn't necessarily indicate a camera or card problem at all. It can be due to a variety of reasons:
...and so on. Typically the corruption happens during the transfer from the card to computer, rather than on the camera itself. You can test this by reviewing the photos in the camera - if they look OK, and you can develop them in camera (using the 5D3 RAW development functionality), then it's easy to confirm the camera and card isn't the problem but actually the transfer process over to your PC. Conversely, if you see corruption on the camera without having involved the PC, then your camera and/or card is the problem.

I'd suggest trying different means of transferring photos to your PC (eg via USB from the camera itself rather than using a card reader, swapping USB ports and USB cables, copying to a different physical HDD etc) to try and narrow down the problem. Note also that you should NEVER use high speed UDMA 7 CF cards in a USB 2.0 reader - that can corrupt data on transfers, and in some cases even damage the CF card itself.

If you want to read more about this sort of corruption, there are various threads such as this one that might help: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/356898

Conversely, if you see corruption on the camera without having involved the PC, then your camera and/or card is the problem.

I'd suggest trying different means of transferring photos to your PC (eg via USB from the camera itself rather than using a card reader, swapping USB ports and USB cables, copying to a different physical HDD etc) to try and narrow down the problem. Note also that you should NEVER use high speed UDMA 7 CF cards in a USB 2.0 reader - that can corrupt data on transfers, and in some cases even damage the CF card itself.

If you want to read more about this sort of corruption, there are various threads such as this one that might help: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/356898

Thank you so much. When I copied the files from the 'bad' card via camera cable, the picture files are ok. The card reader I used seems to be the problem, though the other card I have, which is the same, works just fine with it.

Hoping that A.This is the right thread and B.That someone can help.

I'm running the latest nightly build. My camera has started to stay in 'busy' mode if I attempt to take a photo after recording an mlv (ie. shutter won't release or if it does then last image it takes stays on live view and the camera no longer responds)

I can't recreate the problem every time but it is occurring frequently and sometimes when I just want to take photos, only in live view however. Has anyone had this problem before?

When shooting raw you only get multiples of 100 (200,400,800,1600 etc.) Those in between iso modes are applyed as digital gain to the compressed h264 video files. So those in between modes are always based on one of the real iso values and does nothing to the raw stream that you grab and record when shooting raw.

Is anyone else having problems with exp comp EXIF data being tagged wrong since ML 1.2.3 install?

Since installing Magic Lantern 1.2.3 on 5D III, I have noticed that my files shot at 0 EV exposure comp are wrongly tagged as either +1/3 EV (seen in Digital Photo Professional) or "+1 Step" (in Windows Explorer window, flickr). 

Files shot with +1/3 EV are wrongly tagged as +1/2 EV (DPP) and "+0.5 Step" in Windows explorer and "+1 EV" in flickr.  A file shot with +2/3 EV actually showed as nonsense under flickr EXIF,  "-1&#x2F;2 EV"

Has anyone noticed similar problems since installing Magic Lantern 1.2.3. on 5D III?  Any way to fix this or could this possibly be some other issue, although the only change has been Magic Lantern?

Below are examples:

Hi All,

First time ML user (or trying to be anyway). So I followed all instructions as far as I can tell.

-I updated my Canon firmware to 1.2.3.
-I downloaded the latest ML nightly build.
-I formatted my SD card again in camera.
-I extracted all contents to the root folder of my SD Card.
-I inserted said SD card and taken out my CF card.
-I installed the firmware update through the menu.
-Everything seemed to install fine.
-I waited the 30 seconds for the bootflag to be removed.
-As prompted, I restarted my camera (off, then on).
-When I turned it on, nothing seems different. I don't see any ML overlays, options, etc.
-I pressed the trash can, which also did nothing.

I am using a San Disk Extreme Pro 95MB/s 32GB SD Card and a Lexar 32GB 800x CF card.

PLEASE HELP! I must've missed something, but I have no idea what. I'm dying to try this out!

Keep an eye out here:  https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/commits/all

I think most nightlies are compiled automatically each night, or at least whenever there are any commits.  The 5D3.123 branch is only compiled when there is an specific 5D3.123 commit, and unless I have missed something, there haven't been any 5D3.123 specific commits for some time now.

Hint:  this commit (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/commits/76ea3223c7d1d38ecc97c1627ec70cd75f9a63c4), even though it says 5D3.123 in the name, is for the dm-spy module, which means the module needs to be updated, not the actual core 5D3.123 build.

Sorry for the newbie question, is there an Alpha build of ML for the 5D3 or are the Nightly downloads considered Alphas. I know there is no stable release yet. I don't mind not having the latest features, but I do need it as stable as possible so the nightly builds scare me.
Not sure if there was a solid Alpha or Beta release that had a solid rep for working well. Have a shoot in a week I wanted focus peaking for and maybe some other small features if available...not shooting RAW or anything just yet. But I can't afford corrupt files.

Also, what's the process of going back to the standard Canon firmware from ML? I didn't see that.
Thanks!

Hi, My 5D MK3 is Running on "1.1.3 ML 2.3 NEXT " , What exactly i need to do in order to upgrade?
The instructions says :
1.Format the card from the camera. (Sd card that contains the ML program? or what?)
2.Make sure you are running Canon firmware 1.2.3. (How do i instal this version? via SD card? I just copy the file of this version and run the update? )
3) Copy ML files on the card and run Firmware Update. (Should i delete the second step's file[firmware] from the card before putting the ML files?)

Uninstallation:
1) Run Firmware Update from your ML card. (Means that if i want to go back to 1.2.3 Canon's, just put it on the card and run the update and then the ML is gone?)
2) Follow the instructions.( Are there any more instructions? Where are they?)

I'm asking all of this because i don't really don't know. Thank you.

Installation

1.  Any SD card
2.  Update Canon firmware as per Canon update process.  Read the instructions that come with the Canon firmware file.
3.  Might as well.

Uninstallation

1.  Yes
2.  1 + wait 30 seconds.

My Version is 1.1.3 ml 2.3 NEXT. So i just go and update the version by putting the update file (ML5D3123.FIR) in to my clean SD card or with ML on it?  and run the firmware update?

If you're going to put Magic Lantern 5D3.123 on your camera, it needs to be running Canon firmware version 1.2.3.

Your camera has Canon firmware 1.1.2, so you need to download the appropriate version from your local Canon website.  If you're in the US, for instance, you would go to:

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/slr_cameras/eos_5d_mark_iii#DriversAndSoftware (http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/slr_cameras/eos_5d_mark_iii#DriversAndSoftware)

Look for "Firmware" and you will find Canon's firmware update. It comes in OSX and Windows flavours, pick the appropriate one for you. Follow the instructions from Canon (included in the download) to update the firmware to 1.2.3.

THEN format your SD card in camera, then put it into your computer's card reader, extract the Magic Lantern files to the card, put it back in the camera, then update the firmware to include Magic Lantern.

No.

Canon have made it clear that they do not want people modifying the firmware of their EOS1D series cameras, so if you to run Magic Lantern, you'll have to slum it and get a cheaper camera. :)

Hello-

I've been itching to update my firmware for 5D3 to 1.2.3 from current 1.1.3 -- as long as everyone else on 1.2.3 running ML nightlies with barely any issues.

Chime in your thoughts...

I don't mind staying on 1.1.3 if it is in fact less buggy than the new ones otherwise I'll just go for it.

Thanks!

Yesterday, I updated from 1.1.3 to 1.2.3 on my 5D3 with ML. The installation process was very simple, it has come a long way from a few years ago. I did not have any issues. I was able to record 1080p with a solid green icon for 1 min before I ended the test and after a 1GB card warm up on my KB 64GB 1000x. I did not come across bugs in my non-scientific tests. However, I did not use any HDMI tools.

Successfully installed ML 1.2.3 after updating firmware from 1.1.3 to 1.2.3 -- been itching to do this for some time. Love the new installation/uninstallation process. Features are pretty much the same if not better.  8)

Now I am curious (dumb enough to ask) how to implement Full_Res Silent Photos into my Modules... do I just copy the coding from the bitbucket site and merge them with the current Modules?

I am not sure if this is the best place to post this.

I have 2 5D MK III's with the same latest firmware.  I began using Magic Lantern on them. I noticed one of my 2 cameras wake's up and powers on way slower then the other.  I have tried swapping memory cards, batteries. I even reset the problematic camera. I formatted the cards removing Magic Lantern but the camera still boots up and wakes up noticeably slower then the other one.

A google search brought me to this
http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3016685 but its for the 5D MK II and a rather old thread.

Anybody ever seen this, know if its related to Magic Lantern having been used and how I might fix the problem?
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.2.3
Post by: Walter Schulz on October 24, 2014, 12:22:23 AM
To make ML run you need 3 things:
- Cam with bootflag set
- Bootable card
- Card with ML files on it
During startup a cam with bootflag set will look for a bootable cam. This will cause a slight delay during startup. Same for leaving powersave mode.
Formatting the card will *not* reset cam's bootflag!
You have to reset/remove cam's bootflag by running installation again. Look for instructions during installation. Just wait 30 seconds and bootflag will be gone after.

I am about to take the plunge. One question before I do - I currently have Canon Firmware 1.2.3 on my main CF card. I am considering putting the ML software on a separate SD card and using that card for nothing else. If I do, and both cards are in the camera at the same time could there be a firmware conflict?

My theory is that I will have the SD card in the camera whenever I want to use ML but if I want to revert to the Canon firmware I will just take that card out and re-start the camera. I am hoping it will then revert to the Canon firmware. Is that right?

Is the above a good strategy?

Thank you.

I currently have Canon Firmware 1.2.3 on my main CF card.

You may have the file for the firmware update process on the card. But this is just a file and it is not doing anything on its own.
You can (and should) delete it after updating Canon's firmware.
Magic Lantern doesn't replace Canon's firmware. It runs a a task upon the OS of the cam. Just like any programm running at startup on your computer. And it is indeed loaded from the card at startup.

Thanks Walter. I understand that the Canon firmware file isn't doing anything off the card. The reason I have left it on there is just as a backup in case I ever need to re-install the firmware on the camera. You say that I should take the file off this card - is there any harm leaving it on there? Is the reason you advise taking it off that there might be a conflict with the ML firmware?

Loving the features on 1.2.3 w ML -- I remember reading somewhere in the forums earlier that the 3x crop mode during RAW/MLV does NOT work. I understand that this works just fine on 1.1.3 -- would you guys suggest I downgrade in order to use 3x crop mode or is there a way to get it fixed on 1.2.3?

My gut feeling is that it isn't implemented into the 1.2.3 build yet...

Copy that @swinxx -- however if i understand it correctly that indeed it is fine to stay on 1.2.3 as opposed to downgrading back to 1.1.3?

Strange enough though that full_res silent pic works pretty well on sept 27th build... I'll see if I can test out the 3x crop mode again. Because I could swear I shot it in 3x mode and then when watching it on MLRV 1.3.4 -- it just shows as if i never used the 3x mode.

Will confirm this again later tonight when I get home from work. Thanks all!

I really hope for the 7D2 to be more capable of 60fps...or is it only the card what limits me on the 5D3?

what am I doing wrong? or more to the point can someone please post a step by step including which setting should be set or not set to achieve this in camera and in ML? I have searched and searched and at best all I can find is directions to disable direct draw make sure your in playback mode etc with no clear direction on how to be in playback mode.

I'm guessing that this isn't a 5D3 problem, ie camera specific, but has more to do with mlv, so have a look at the appropriate part of the forum, read the FAQ, use search to see if anybody has run into this and if you can't find your answer, THEN ask in the relevant place. Doing so will help to keep the mods in good humour. :)

Thanks Audionut, So if I'm reading you correctly make sure the mode switch is in stills mode? (white camera icon) I've tried that and in the bench utility it shows as mode:photo ?  not mode:playback is this a new naming convention with the new build ? I'm on canon firmware 1.2.3 with ML Aug 7 build I guess whats throwing me is that I am trying to have Mode: Playback show in the benchmark utility and I can only produce Mode:movie  or Mode:Photo

Hi folks, this is my first post on these boards =)

I've only recently discovered Magic Lantern, and I'm still educating myself on all the things it can do.  I have yet to actually put it on a camera, but I'll be trying it out on my 700D over the weekend.  I have access to a 5D3 that I use when working with a particular crew, and with the 7D2 sporting 1080p60, I started wondering...

Because of the bandwidth of a CF, the 5D3 can shoot raw 1080p30, but from my understanding it can't handle any frame rate much higher than 30 when shooting raw.  But how about compressed footage?  Is it possible that the 5D3 could handle compressed h264 1080p60 at nearly the same bitrate as raw 1080p30?  Or is the Digic 5+ a bottleneck here?

Sorry if this has already been discussed in this thread, I did a fair bit of browsing to see if this was brought up but didn't find anything.

Yes, I actually was asking about ML.  I guess I should re-phrase and simplify:

The 5DIII's CF slot allows write speeds fast enough to support recording raw 1080p30.  ML lets you take advantage of this by giving you the option to record raw 1080p30 instead of compressed h264, as long as your card is fast enough.  ML also gives you full control over frame rate and bit rate.  Because of this, wouldn't ML enable the 5DIII to theoretically be able to shoot 1080p60 in the default h264 compression with a bit rate around 90MB/s?

Also, the 5DIII isn't mine to sell.  It's collectively owned by a small crew/studio that I work with sometimes, and I'm trying to convince them to try ML on the camera.  1080p60 is something we'd love to have, even if compressed. I'll eventually get my own 7DII after putting aside enough cash for one, but I'd still rather shoot 60fps on a full frame than cropped frame!

I just randomly decided today to downgrade back to 1.1.3 (which was easy to do) then I ran into realization that there isn't alpha build 1.1.3 enlisted under Downloads anymore... is there a reason for this to be taken off?

I still have the Alpha build saved on my macbook BUT it just keeps saying Data not found please install all ML files. I know I did this repeatedly but still no luck. However, I also read on the Downloads page that it also mentioned to upgrade to 1.2.3 first before installing 1.1.3 (not sure what this means) but I am currently upgrading back to 1.2.3 after successfully downgrading to 1.1.3 (but no luck with ML installation)...

anyone else out there experiencing similar situation as I am?   :-\

IMO -- its fine using ML on 1.2.3 but after resaerching the forums apparently its a bit faster shooting RAW on 1.1.3 as oppose to 1.2.3 thus the reason why I decided to downgrade to 1.1.3 just to do this test BUT again it may not be worth the hassle since 1.2.3 works just as flawlessly other than RAW_TWK.MO module that would NOT work on 1.2.3 (assuming it only works on 1.1.3) correct me if I'm wrong on this.

Perhaps it may be best to stick with 1.2.3 ML until further updates...

THANKS!

Thanks @Walter Schulz -- however whenever I try to install ML 1.1.3 after successfully downgrading from 1.2.3 to 1.1.3 it still says ML DAT FONTS retry despite the fact that I compiled the ML folder from the Jenkins site directly unless I'm missing something?

Only reason why I want to do this is because I want to do another benchmark testing with the new KB 128gb 1066x (which disappointed me with the results on 1.2.3 but hoping that it would be slightly faster on 1.1.3 with its reading speed. I was getting avg of 92.4 write/121.2 read which is not even close to their advertising of 160/150MB's

Anyone else experiencing similar effects with KB 128gb 1066x?

I ran Macboot Command (its been awhile since Ive been on 1.2.3 up until then) through terminal and set the DSLR bootable which did the trick now that ML is working on 1.1.3 (My fault on that guys!)

Compiled? You're sure not to confuse "download and extract" with "compiling the sources to get binaries"? And if you really compiled: Why?


Not sure why but I just figured since I remember I had to use Macboot Command to make the 5D3 bootable on 1.1.3 so I did that and now ML is running fine and currently benchmarking the KB 128gb 1066x to see if the Write/Read speeds are similar or not...

I didn't mean to be absurd by labeling it averages -- guess I assumed that it would be polite to post the 'average' rather than posting screenshots of my BM's but since you mentioned that no one else has ever used this terminology so my apologies for that confusion.

In fact it is showing slightly higher numbers on both the Write/Read speeds as I type...

I am already aware of the fact that the CF card slot had a bottleneck of about 120/mb write speed which was why I was kind of perplexed by the fact that the KB 128gb 1066x I have in my hand may be a defective one... will run some more tests before I make a final decision.

I believe there is another thread where I can post screenshots since it would be a violation of the policy if I were to post them on this particular thread.

Thanks for your feedback @Walter Schulz

I'm experiencing two issues with latest nightly build which I'm not finding any solid info about, so I thought I would try here.

1.  I ran the 5 minute benchmark on the CF card I am using and saw write speeds never getting above ~45 MB/s.  The card is a 800x Lexar Pro (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0093HGEKG/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) which claims to support up to 120 MB/s.  I'm assuming either I have not tweaked something which I should have or there is some issue within the build which is affecting my write speeds.

2.  The second issue is a bit more complex.  I have 3x 32Gb CF cards which I have previously used with this camera just fine.  I installed ML on the above Lexar CF card without incident and everything apart from the poor write speed is functioning normally.  I wanted to make sure ML was on all of my cards.  I powered the camera off, removed the ML-CF card, inserted the new one so I could format it before adding the ML files and following the boot-flag procedure.  The camera wouldn't power on.  Nothing. Removed and reinserted the battery, card, in different orders, nothing.  Removing the battery and reinserting the ML-CF card before reinserting the battery got the camera to power on just fine.  I'm stumped as I have not experienced this on other ML installs I have done across multiple cards for other cameras.  Ideas?  Could it be a bad card which makes both of these issues connected somehow?

No, you've done everything you should have done and there is nothing you can do about. Benchmarks for Lexar 800x:

hey all,

I just tried loading the latest nightly, and it works perfectly on one of my cards, but on two others  it does the CF test when I turn it on and freezes when it hits (40)  two cards, every time. I tried an older build from July and the same thing. Is this indicative of a fault in my cards? Is there anything else I can do to try to troubleshoot? thanks.

Hey Guys, Ladies,

I have an issue with the Audio Menu on the ML, It's sows me only 2 sub-menu items, Speaker Volume and Beep Test Tones..Do I need to do something special to have all the Audio Menu showing?
My second problem: On my SmallHD monitor no Magic Zoom Available in HDMI 1080i, does somebody knows if it's a fix for this or i will need to buy the SDI version of the monitor, will it work on that?
I am on 5DMark3 with 1.2.3 and the August Nightly Build Installed.

@Ciprian_Sauca
Did it work for you before? Have you searched the forum?
If you did, good!  ;D

-Did you start/load the audio/sound module from the MagicLantern menu?
-Did you restart the camera after doing this?

Because this has been asked a gazzillion times, and often been a very easy fix...  :'(

Hey Daniel,

I have loaded the MLV Sound Module, shows on the Audio Task Bar along the other 2 that I was talking earlier, but no sign of the full audio menu. I have tried before posting with the manual, within the forum, maybe I don't address the issue properly.

Thanks for the reply and sorry for the mess-up but if you can guide me to the page that will resolve my problem I will be more then happy.

Hey Walter, Kudos for you...This fixed my issue...They are not ready yet on the Mark III.
I have discover something else while playing thru the menus. I have an SmallHD monitor and while is connected to my MarkIII the Magic Zoom will not work on it, it is written on the bottom that will not work via HDMI 1080i. Do you have any clue about this and if is there any fix for it or it in the same stage as the audio module? Maybe if I buy an SmallHD SDI? Will this go thru?

I was thinking about getting a 5D MKiii for Black Friday or Xmas.

Of course I want to install ML on the 5D MKiii, but I want to know what are the current problems with ML for the 5D MKiii.

I shot a 600D (T3i) using ML and it worked flawlessly for me.  So I was wondering whether ML will work flawlessly on the 5D MKiii as well.

I really like the timelapse features (e.g., intervalometer, AETTR, deflicker, dual ISO, etc.) that ML offers for the 600D.

Does ML for the 5D MKiii also have all of these features?

Also, I've been reading about this "boot flag" problem.  What is this problem and has it been fixed?

I also been reading about ML 1.1.3 vs ML 1.2.3.  Which one is more stable?

Lastly, has anyone ever experienced any serious problems with the 5D MKiii after installing ML?  I doubt it, but it never hurts to ask since all the Devs are very meticulous and competent coders.

Any help to these questions is appreciated.  Thanks.

I have been using 1.2.3 for a few months now when I was using 1.1.3 previously. People brought up that 1.2.3 is slower than 1.1.3. This may have been in the early stages, which would be expected but. The latest build, Aug 2014 I believe, doesn't seem to be slower for me. I use 64 KB cards.

Ive asked this question in the 1.1.3 thread but im guessing development on that firmware has stopped.

Just wondering if it is possible to have Magic Zoom triggered by the half shutter press as with the MKII, instead of just the Magnify button on the left side as it is now? It would make the world of difference using that function for event work. Cheers!

Hello there,

is the 2 second delay you never get rid of again still and issue? Or can I get my camera back as it was after using ML?

Also if watching a raw video stream is not working very well on the camera about about a connected android smartphone? Would this work to check the recording?

1. It's possible to fully remove ML now

2. You need a computer with a decent GPU to be able to playback raw video in realtime (demosaicing is a rather computationally intensive task)

BTW: this thread is not the place to be posting questions about raw video (as has been stated many times previously)

That sounds good. Could I put ML on a small SD card and just remove it to turn it off?

No option to check the recorded raw video on set is not so great though.

Does the 4GB limits also affect raw video recording?

How is raw video on the battery, I would imagine it could save some compared to normal encoded video because the CPU doesn't have to compress it..but then its more data. Will it empty my batteries faster?

Hello everyone, and sorry in advance if my questions make you pull your hair out in frustration. It is not my intention. I promise.

I have been following the project for e few years and the the tools you release and the results that can be made with them are pretty amazing. I am a film photographer who most of the time shoot on my own 5D3 1.2.3., but the RAW-video results that ML produce are unbelievable. It looks close to something coming out of a way higher end camera. SO, enough babbling. Since the camera is expensive, I just want to shoot you a few questions. Feel free to ignore them if you do not have time to answer.

Is there still an issue with pink pixels?
Have anyone – as far as you heard of – destroyed or broken their camera, 5D3 in particular, by using ML?
Since the boot flag issue has been resolved; does that mean that the camera can now be restored to actual factory settings with no trace of hack? I have found it hard to find an answer to this.
How reliable do you (users in general) find ML to be?

I would ideally like to use it when doing video production work, but am also well aware that this is something without any guarantees. I would however very much appreciate any info or experiences that you want to share regarding the reliability and stability. There is always a risk when using with software like this, but it is alot easier to make the jump if it seems to be working well for others already.

Thank you, and keep up the great work!

You haven't removed the cam's bootflag. And the cards are still bootable.

Copy you ML downloads (extracted) to card: FIR + Autoexec.bin + ML directory
and run install again to remove cams bootflag and delete cards bootoption.
Remaining cards may be formatted using a cardreader but that's up to you.
After the cam's bootflag is removed they will use bootable and non bootable card the very same way.

Query;

I am currently running ML newest nightly build on an SD card only in my 5d3. I wanted to enable dual ISO and it tells me to enable RAW photo quality from the Canon menu, which I have. However since I'm running SD card only in the second slot, I'm assuming dual iso is checking for the CF card and not finding it, causing this message. Just wondered if anyone could confirm or perhaps let me know if I am doing something wrong :)

Have used dual iso on my t3i a lot in the past and been very surprised and impressed with what it could do.
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.2.3
Post by: tron on December 24, 2014, 11:05:14 PM
I guess you have to enable RAW and either choose "Auto Switch card" or "Rec to Multiple" options.

So as to be able to write RAW even on SD card when CF is missing.

TEST:
I have selected RAW (only), "Rec to Multiple" option and removed my CF card. I have enabled DUAL ISO and it works.

That fixed it, thanks!

Now I gotta read the help files and learn the menu a bit, its laid out differently with a different option set than the version I had on my T3i - I had 2 ISO's to work with before and now it has a "Recovery ISO" field instead.

Any indication of how long its likely to be before AGC toggle is added to this build for 5D3. Its the main reason i want to use ML with 5D3. Just want to find out if its long term problem or a short term fix.

By far the best option IMHO is to buy a cheap SD card and use it exclusively for ML.

You may copy ML\Settings from one card to another. ML has no sync mechanism for users of multiple cards.
On cams with multiple slots it is indeed easier to use one card to start ML from and several data storage cards.

Hey guys, Sorry if I'm missing something but when I go to the ML nightly download page http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/ and select 5D3.123, the latest build was on 2014-08-06. When I select 5D3.113, the latest build was on 2015-01-02. Is there a reason the ML build for firmware 113 is being developed more often than the 123 firmware? I thought all development has been migrated over to the the 1.2.3 firmware. Thanks for your help!

If you look into release history you will see there was a break for about 3 months for all camera versions.
ML for 5D3 1.2.3 is something *not* following the "standard" pace.

I knew about the development hiatus, but I guess you're right that it's not following the "standard" schedule. I looked a few pages back and saw the post from a1ex about him wanting to focus more on the stills functions rather than video. Hopefully someone else will take over the development.

Hello

I know this has been asked before - however after extensive searching I just cant seem to find an answer - or I don't understand any answer that I've read.

The 1.2.3 Nightly build hasn't updated since August 2014 - however the 1.1.3 Build is updated as of January this year.

Are there any plans to create a more recent 1.2.3 build?

I've tried reverting to 1.1.3 and then using a 1.1.3. nightly but they don't contain any .fir so I can't use them.

Is my answer just to wait for a new 1.2.3 nightly?

Many thanks and all help appreciated.

Install Canon's firmware 1.2.3. Use Nightly Build for 1.2.3 to set cam's bootflag and make the card bootable. Downgrade to Canon's firmware 1.1.3. Delete ML folder and Autoexec.bin from card and copy extracted "ML for 1.1.3" to card.
Done. You are running ML for 1.1.3

Gah!

I'm sorry but this bit just doesn't seem to work. When I Downgrade to Canon's firmware 1.1.3 it resets the bootflag on the camera. It boots nothing from the 1.1.3 card.....

Post by: Walter Schulz on January 07, 2015, 06:00:14 PM
Canon's firmware update/downgrade won't affect cam's bootflag. Period.

Describe in detail what you have done. I suppose you formatted the card during the operation and made the card non bootable.
You may make the card bootable again by using EOScard.
Or do it right this time. Don't format the card after running 1.2.3 installation!

If you have a second card: Format it using a cardreader and use this one for Canon's firmware only.

Thank you for your patience.

Steps:

Have 1.2.3 ML running fine.
ML Card has autoexec.bin, ML folder and ML5D3123.FIR on it. Nothing else.
Remove ML Card
Have second card with Canon 1.1.3 on it because I don't want to mess with the bootable-ness of my ML Card.
Insert Card 2 with Canon 1.1.3 on it.
Update (backdate) firmware to 1.1.3.
Remove Card 2.
On my mac I delete contents of ML Card and replace with 1.1.3 nightly contents.
ML Card has autoexec.bin and ML folder only.
Camera boots. Doesn't load anything from card. Just plain vanilla 1.1.3.

Post by: gabesosa on January 08, 2015, 11:41:53 AM
Some thoughts:

What is of note is that when I have to revert back to 1.2.3 and use the ML5D3123.FIR to set the bootflag it does give me a message saying that the bootflag is already set. So you are absolutely right about Canon firmware changes not affecting the bootflag (I didn't doubt you anyway).

So the bootflag IS set on the camera.

The camera boots straight into vanilla Canon.

If there is a bootable card but no autoexec.bin then the camera would hang on startup.....

I removed the contents of my ML card. It doesnt hang.

Which means the the ML card is (for some reason) no longer a bootable card.

This MUST be it. (if my thinking is correct?)

I'll work on it.

Post by: walter_schulz on January 08, 2015, 11:48:11 AM
Yes, but you are right and wrong.
The part wrong is: Running the installation process your card will be made bootable.
Q: "Removing" ML parts as in deleting AUTOEXEC.BIN and ML directory or as in formatting the card using a cardreader. Second one will render the card non bootable.
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.2.3
Post by: gabesosa on January 08, 2015, 11:58:41 AM
Whats confusing is that I haven't formatted the card at any time. Just deleted contents using mac finder window.

I'm going to download EOSCard/Macboot and check the card/change the card.

Just to confirm:

I have Canon 1.1.3.
I have bootflag set (it MUST be).

Then ALL I need is a working bootable card with ML 1.1.3 nightly on it....
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.2.3
Post by: walter_schulz on January 08, 2015, 12:03:55 PM
Yes, absolutely correct!

Cam with bootflag set will look for a bootable card.
If bootable card is found AUTOEXEC.BIN will be loaded (or cam will get stuck if file is absent).
ML directory holds config data and some other stuff.
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.2.3
Post by: gabesosa on January 08, 2015, 12:15:08 PM
SOLVED!

So I used EOSCard on a PC to prepare the card. Put latest nightly on it and BOOM. Works exactly as it should. I'm running ML 1.1.3 dated 03 Jan.

Hooray.

I worked out what was causing the problem:

Deleting the contents of the ML card (not formatting, just deleting) using finder on mac was making the card non-bootable for ML 1.1.3.

I have NO IDEA why that would happen.

It was made even more confusing due to that process working fine for 1.2.3 whenever I reverted back to it...

Again - no idea why it would remain bootable for 1.2.3 but not for 1.1.3 using the same process (deleting and replacing contents.... NOT formatting).

Walter thank you so much for your continued help.

What firmware version do you have currently? If you have 1.2.3 then you probably want to stay with the 1.2.3 version of MagicLantern. If you have a version newer than 1.2.3 I will send you a message to find out a bit more.

I have recently bought mk3 and have 1.2.3 version, but I see that there is no update od ML since august 2014 and for 1.1.3 is updated a few day ago, that's why I'm asking, is it worth to downgrade to 1.1.3 and install latest ML or no?

Going from 1.2.3 to 1.1.3, the significant loss in the Canon firmware will be the ability to auto focus at f/8.

Post by: silenthunter on January 11, 2015, 01:21:12 PM
Yes, but we all know what's new in Canon firmware (new vs old), but I was wondering is it worth to downgrade FW just to get using an updated version of ML, are there that much important and useful things?
To make it simple: should I (and everybody else) stick to 1.2.3 and ML from 2014y (and wait for newone) or it is better to downgrade FW and use a fresh new ML?
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.2.3
Post by: chris_overseas on January 11, 2015, 02:24:59 PM
I'd suggest sticking with 1.2.3. The two ML versions are almost the same, it's just that the 1.2.3 branch of the code hasn't been updated with the latest changes yet. There have been very few changes since August so you're not really going to be missing out on anything of note. The only benefits you'll get downgrading to 1.1.3 are slightly faster RAW video recording (makes 1080p continuous a bit easier to reach) and a few small things like fast zebras and full screen magic zoom (because their new register locations haven't been found on 1.2.3).

Post by: DeafEyeJedi on January 11, 2015, 07:15:30 PM
As previously said earlier -- I'm a happy swinger between 1.1.3 & 1.2.3 for the most part I prefer 1.1.3 only because of the slightly faster recording times for RAW/MLV which can also push the MB/s a little higher therefore chances of dropped frames can be slimmer.

Depending on the settings, obviously!

correct. I miss having the FRSP for 1.2.3 though... I somehow misplaced it somewhere in my external drives and chances are that I may have accidentally deleted 'em.

So I only have the Sept 27th fixed version FRSP for 1.1.3 which works well (however, I'm still struggling to compile with the code that @a1ex made) in order to extend the shutter speed to 1/20-1/30th as oppose to the limited 1/15th.

I know, I'm an iDiot!

4k recording on Eos 5d MArk III:


1 I cannot setup higher recording resolutions in the Magic lantern more than something like 1,5K. There are I saw up to 4 k resolutions but the software does not permit me to choose. Why? ( I have the latest available Magic lantern version of August 2014)

2. Ok I got the Atomos Shogun. How could I record RAW from Magic Lantern over HDMI directly in to the Shogun? Also combined with the hopefully positive answer of question 1 how could I record 4K thanks to Magic Lantern directly into the Shogun?

1. There is no 4k recording on 5d3. THe highest really usable res is 2.5k in 2,35:1 aspect ratio (in crop mode). It is because of limitation in memory cars write speed. In full frame max is 1920x1280.
2. Camera doesnt output raw through hdmi, only uncompressed 4:2:2 8bit 1920x1080. Please do a little bit of reading the forum, especially pinned topics.

Post by: kgv5 on January 16, 2015, 10:35:33 PM
1.Because in 24fps it will exceed maximum data rate which camera is able to write. You can use this 3.5k but only in low fps/some extreme aspect ratio like 3:1 or so.
2. Hdmi output is something which ML is unable to control due to the hardware limitations.

I updated all the stubs a couple of weeks back (assuming the dump I had matches the official release). Still need to calculate the signature and check/update the font addresses but apart from that I don't think there's too much else required to get the 1.3.3 port up and running.

Depends. In fact the installation procedure sets the cam's bootflag *and* makes the card bootable.
To make a card bootable you may run the installation procedure once again or use EOScard/Macboot. Second option may be preferred by users running 550D, 600D or 5D3.113 because they don't have a 3-step easy install routine.

I am not sure how someone was able to revert back to 1.2.3 from 1.3.3 using the EOS Utility.  I am on a Mac running 10.10.1 and an older Mac running 9.2.1 and using various versions of EOS Utility I get the same results - I can see the firmware version within the settings tab, but it is greyed out and I can't access it.  I would appreciate anyone who has a answer on how to dial the firmware back to reply.

Thanks

Just received my 5D Mark III back from Canon for an HDMI port repair and discovered that they updated my firmware to 1.3.3!  For the past year I have been shooting RAW with the ML hack exclusively with this camera.  Am I screwed?  Is there any way to install an older firmware once the newer one has been installed?   Does not appear that a ML build for 1.3.3 is happening any time soon.  Please help. Thanks

I'm not sure about Mac but I've downgraded from 1.3.3 to 1.2.3 a whole bunch of times already on Windows. It worked fine every time, I just plugged in the USB cable with the camera on and in photo mode and the menu item becomes available.

If you do have trouble downgrading and want to live on the edge a little, you can try building the 1.3.3 port (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-request/605/support-for-5d3-firmware-133/diff (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-request/605/support-for-5d3-firmware-133/diff)). Don't forget to report back any bugs you might find.

Wow - thanks so much for posting the article on how to over ride the greyed out firmware upgrade function of the EOS Utility.  Followed those instructions, dialed back the firmware to 1.2.3, reloaded ML to my SD card and I now am back in business.  A thousand thanks.

Hi, sorry for asking but I need to be sure.

I have held off flashing ML 1.2.3 because the first page always said the bootflag is not reversible.

Today I read the firstpage and it says no longer says the bootflag is not reversible.

Can ML be removed completely now?

So I used EOSCard on a PC to prepare the card. Put latest nightly on it and BOOM. Works exactly as it should. I'm running ML 1.1.3 dated 03 Jan.

Hooray.

I worked out what was causing the problem:

Deleting the contents of the ML card (not formatting, just deleting) using finder on mac was making the card non-bootable for ML 1.1.3.

I have NO IDEA why that would happen.

It was made even more confusing due to that process working fine for 1.2.3 whenever I reverted back to it...

Again - no idea why it would remain bootable for 1.2.3 but not for 1.1.3 using the same process (deleting and replacing contents.... NOT formatting).

Walter thank you so much for your continued help.



i did all of the above and it still didn't install.  I also didn't reformat the card and still no install of 1.1.3 build.  i did notice on the eoscard it still said 1.2.3 stable version with a drop menu next to it but no 1.1.3 option.  i duno if that makes a difference or not but no matter how many times i tried, I wasn't able to install ML to my 5d3.  can anyone offer any suggestions?

I'm taking the plunge.

Is 113 or 123 the one that most people prefer? I do use my 5D3 for commercial shots, which one of those do you find the most reliable? Does one of them have any certain advantages over the other? I record audio externally.

Format card in cardreader, make card bootable (EOScard/Macboot) and copy extracted nightly contents (1.1.3) to card.

OS X: We had - at least - two incidents with OS X making a card non-bootable (on it's own). So check after copying and run Macboot again.

So I just got a 5D MIII and my firmware says it's 1.2.3, but when I try to add in the ML software it tells me "Memory card requires firmware update" with and without the ML SD card inside, but it won't let me update. I tried reinstalling 1.2.3, even though that's what I originally had, but nothing is working with the ML card. Any suggestions?

I have the same problem if I use an external monitor (hdmi out - no mirroring). Did you get rid of the problem?

On the other hand when I activate mirroring I noticed that the image is slidly cropped on the monitor in comparison to the lcd screen or the final recording. I remember that someone had the same problem but I can't find that post right now. Does anybody have the same issues?

I'm on 1.2.3.
Title: Non-standard lens noises during AF and IS operation with ML 1.2.3
Post by: slappy_g on February 24, 2015, 06:53:19 PM
[Long time lurker - first time poster.]

First, much respect and thanks to the talented ML team.  I tried searching for a few keywords but couldn't find any hits.

With the 1.2.3 ML build, I am finding that camera operations work fine (no shock), but I have a very concerning issue with lens AF and IS noises.  When using a 17-40L, a 24-105L and a 70-200L IS II, the AF operation is much louder and has a "sliding" noise, that sounds like pulse-width modulation (PWM) being applied to the AF drive.  Also, the IS sounds are much louder when it engages/disengages.  This is when operating through the viewfinder, with default settings in ML.

I have done several rollback tests to Stock firmware and ML, and it is 100% reproducible, and it is alarming that the motor drive sounds of the lenses is so different.  Trust me, this is not me hearing phantom noises, I even had my family members confirm it and they remarked that it was "much noisier" using ML.

I have since gone back to stock firmware, but any ideas on what would cause this, and if there is any log data I can capture to provide the team?  I can't imagine it's just me seeing this, unless most ML users are strict manual focusers.

Post by: a1ex on February 24, 2015, 10:23:03 PM
Can you record a video showing the problem? (stock firmware vs ML).

If the difference is clear, do the following tests:
1) start the camera by holding the SET button pressed at startup (this loads ML, but it's inactive)
2) if noise is fine after doing 1), start ML normally and turn off everything you can find in ML menu
3) if noise is fine after doing 2), start enabling things until you find the culprit.

In the builds download section i see this message :

You cannot use this package for first install.

To install ML, please upgrade to firmware 1.2.3.

The 1.1.3 firmware might be a little faster in RAW recording (not confirmed).

Now i`m confused , i`m suppose to upgrade firmaware or what ?


Files that i have from the latest build magiclantern-Nightly.2015Feb20.5D3113 are only the autoexec.bin and a ML folder. And i`m using the initiall 1.1.3 firmware that came with my camera.

You may read the bit about installation. The fun part is: You can't install 1.1.3 without installing 1.2.3

EDIT: A bit of advice. Upgrade Canon firmware to 1.2.3, install ML for firmware 1.2.3 and play around a bit. Will do just fine. Or do you have some real fast cards? 1000x or up needed for top performance (=a little bit higher resolution for continuous recording) with 1.1.3.
EDITEDIT: And there is not that much difference between 1.1.3 and 1.2.3 code.
1.2.3 doesn't take part in standard build procedure. 1.1.3 does. If there are changes in code for another cam a new 1.1.3 build will be generated. And if you look into version history you will have a hard time finding changes for 5D3.
1.2.3 build is triggered only if there is a cause.

FORMAT_BTN_NAME and FORMAT_STR_LOC are not defined (in consts.h). These were added when "restore after format" was fixed. I assume you can just use the same values as in 5D3.113.

Hi,

I don't understand something, that I guess you can answer in a second, so here goes:

Why are there a 1.1.3 and 1.2.3 version for the Canon EOS 5dmk3 Camera? They both require the 123 firmware version so I guess that is not the reason.

I would suspect that the 123 version is the newer one, but it seems that it is not being updates since the last nightly build is from August last year. I just installed the 123 version. Should I instead go with the 113 version?

Another think. Why is there no stable version anywhere?

Hope someone will take the time to answer my question.

Another think. Why is there no stable version anywhere?

"Stable" is more than 2 years old and devs decided to switch to "Rolling Release" development model (Look it up in Wikipedia.) some time ago. 1.1.3 is supposed to deliver faster write rates (= higher resolutions). 1.2.3 supports all the fun stuff Canon decided to put in. f/8 with AF and some other things.

A related question if I may. As photographer I'm not interested in video, but, as I have a long lens I'm interested in focus at F/8, hence I changed to the 1.2.3 as soon as it came out.

However, as has been noted, only the 1.1.3 ML is getting refreshed.

Could someone please clarify if 1.2.3 will be brought up to date, or should I consider dropping back to 1.1.3?

Much appreciate any feedback.

Hey everyone, quick question about external monitors.

I'm using 1.1.3 since ages and I've been following the 1.2.3 development since it's been released without feeling the need to upgrade.

I'm about to shoot a personal project using a DJI Ronin using RAW and the question of external monitoring comes. I know one of the benefits of 1.2.3 is clean HDMI out, but from your experiences, is it worth the upgrade ? I mean, is the 480p out from 1.1.3 really dirty and unstable ? And if I upgrade to 1.2.3, are there known issues with external monitoring, or will it work seamlessly ? Is there a thread dedicated to that (I've read the forum for hours).

Last observation about upgrading/downgrading firmware back and forth between 1.1.3 and 1.2.3. I've read that some of you guys do it on a regular basis ("happy swingers"), but I recall a1ex saying we might avoid doing that because each time it moves/removes/add code into the camera core and it can have consequences in the long run. Is that really critical or just a general guideline to avoid up/downgrading 5 times a day ?

Thank you so much for the work you guys have done and keep doing. I really hope to see a1ex getting back on it, and I hope I'll be able to contribute again to this fabulous project.

There are no problems with 1.2.3, I've been using ML on my 1.2.3 5DIII since the it was first made available.

However, at the moment, the 1.2.3 build version is not being automatically updated in the nightlies, ie it has to be handraulically done.

But, as a photographer, I'm content with the version I have and can wait until the 1.2.3 build is incorporate.

Post by: garry23 on March 05, 2015, 06:55:45 PM
Others will add to my humble view I'm sure.
Because ML is now on a rolling update basis, all you need to look for is the latest release for your camera.

Many cameras are automatically updated.

The 1.2.3 on the 5DIII is not.

That is my understanding.

Regarding firmware 1.23 and clean HDMI out...

I shot a short last summer with 1.13 and lower res HDMI. It was challenging at times to focus. I shot most of it with a Canon 135mm and a Sigma 35mm Art. With the 1.13, at least, it was easier to recognize focus with the 135 because the fall off and bokah are very noticeable. With the 35 lens the lens softer so gradually, it could be hard to figure out when I had tack sharp focus.

After that short I upgraded to 1.23 and the focusing is way way easier. Still not always easy, but way better. The firmware has been very stable, too.


Us 5D filmmakers are relying on a beautiful challenging camera. A DP friend of mine, who shoots big TV shows, never uses a 5D cause the sensor makes focus a pain. When they throw a DSLR into the mix with the Alexa, they'd opt for a 7D. And nowadays he opts for the GH4.

Post by: atnugo on March 07, 2015, 12:56:49 AM
Thank you for the feedback lostfeliz !
I think I will update to 1.2.3 to benefit from the clean HDMI out. As you explained, not easy to pull focus on a 480p stream.

Have you noticed any problem while using 1.2.3 ? I generally don't record for a long time (2min at most) so it shouldn't be a problem. But I'm more worried about interviews that tend to last for more than 15/20 minutes, where 1.1.3 seems more efficient.

Thanks !

I shoot with 64GB cards. When I shoot long take scripted, we can shoot an 11 minute long take in RAW at 1080/24. But if I'm shooting interviews, I shoot h264.

Not sure if there are issues shooting 20-22 minute 1080/24 clips with 128GB cards. There aren't any I know of.

Maybe if you shoot 720p you could shoot up to 30 minute RAW clips.

I'm not having any technical issues that are serious or cumbersome. Just the regular dreams for even more features, options and refinements from the incredible Magic Lantern team!

I have used both 113 and 123 and what I can say is this.. ::)

1.2.3 to me was MUCH more stable(I know pretty Ironic), much!
I'm sure there are a lot that will disagree
but the experience for me with the 1.2.3 was good. If I set a shoot on specific settings and shot it I would not get any weird shit happening and If I set the same settings the next day I would get the same results. It was consistent and reliable.

With the 1.1.3 the experience is hard to put in to words. Its like one leg in and one leg out, at times I will get really good results and at times I will not so what I'm trying to say is that 1.1.3 is not really consistent with its results. And for that reason I can't do any professional work because I'm terrified of either getting frame skipping or pink frames etc..

Since I've downgraded to 1.1.3 I have gotten more crashes(frozen and had to take battery out) than I can count but I never got a single crash on the 1.2.3, EVER.

At this point i'm contemplating between which one I should stick with and haven't made a decision yet but the constant crashes in 1.1.3 is making me lean more towards on 1.2.3

BTW whats going on with the 1.3.3?

How to reproduce those crashes?

Are you sure 1.2.3 doesn't crash if you repeat the same action that crashes on 1.1.3? Can you double-check and do a proper bug report?

With the newly released version I'm getting tearing and random colourful frames. KB64/1000x cards & 5d3. Anyone else? What do you need to troubleshoot?
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.2.3
Post by: a1ex on March 22, 2015, 07:20:22 AM
1. Find a way to reproduce.

Most likely this will not be something fully deterministic. Look for things like "if I record 10 videos, each of them 10 seconds long, with settings XYZ, about 2 or 3 of them will have pink frames".

2. Check if the problem still happens on the previous version (last summer). If yes, stop here.

3. Downgrade to 1.1.3 and see if the problem persists. If no, stop here.

4. Do a binary search to find the exact nightly build where the issue appeared.

Once that build is identified, we will know where to look.

Sorry i am in a hurry, but I get those random colorful frames within a take with firmware 113 and the latest ml version. for me 123 seems also much more stable although 113 seems to record a little faster.

Hi,

I have on some tests shots, sometimes a bad frame, like a flash on the upper part of a frame using mlvrec from the last build from march 2015.
Raw Video / bad frames with using mlvrec from 2015Mar16.5D3123 build on 5d3

I did too test shots with rawrec recording: no problems
So i downgraded to 1.1.3, loaded the last build for 1.1.3 and make new mlv test shots and had same results, sometimes a bad frame.
Then i upgraded to 1.2.3 and used the last 2014 7 August version of the 1.2.3 ML firmware, and did mlv test shots again. No problem

I did a last test. i loaded again the 2015Mar16.5D3123 build but replace the mlvrec module by the one of the 2014 7 August version. Test shots. No problems, no bad frames.

It seems then related to the mlvrec module on the last build, for 1.2.3 and 1.1.3.

Any ideas?
I did too test shots with rawrec recording: no problems

To AL3X : Yes I have ran some tests, same tests to be exact on both firmwares and my results are the same.

I did tests on different res to different aspect ratio, to different fps.
I even did some tests with unloading module except for the raw rec just so I can get the best results when it comes to fps and res size.

As TWINXX said, 1.1.3 might be a lil faster but 1.2.3 is much more stable.

Hello everyone. I installed Magic Lantern on my 5DMK3  (1.2.3). Let me know if this is normal that in my Audio menu I have only two options? "speaker volume" and "beep, test tones."
Where are the other options?
Where can I find recent screenshots of magic lantern for 5DMK3?

And I want to know how to put the white balance to "auto"? Thank you !

Sorry for my English !

Yes, Audio menu looks like that. Use Canon's menu to tune audio settings. You will get more menu options in ML for MLV sound recording after MLV_SND.mo is loaded.
And setting WB to auto is done in Canon's menu, too.

Hello :)
@ swinxx, bayard1965 and itsDPmikey

Can you tell me since when exactly the new bad frames problem started, were the march versions before okay (there were a lot)? I just need to start my final degree work next week and would like to stick with 1.1.3 because of 50p. But I want to minimize the risk of getting bad frames :) Which nightly to take?

And just of curiosity. Do you think, that it is okay to get the newest ML nightly, but exchange the older, more stable mlv_rec module? Or should I better leave it alone, because the module is connected to the Firmware and could produce version dependent errors.

Thanks a lot!


EDIT: Oh, one more question. I noticed, that in 1280 mode the pixel height for cinemascope is now 1920x490 rather than 1920x508 before. Is this supposed to be? If yes, what is the reason, because many people could get continuous 1920x508 50p. I thought maybe this way you can get continuous 1920x490 60p but no chance.

Post by: itsDPmikey on March 26, 2015, 06:26:50 PM
to johannsebastianbach,

I have used the ML 1.2.3 since first day I got my 5DMIII and it was very stable/reliable. It was just recently last month I think, that I decided to try the 1.1.3 since there were so many people claiming that 1.1.3 was better or faster. I experienced the crashes and choppy flickery pink frames as early as the first day of installing 1.1.3.

I just want to say that this is not a rant or anything like that. I highly respect the geniuses behind ML and I thank them for their hard work. The fact that they have worked so hard to give us the option to choose between what works best for us is really great.

In my opinion...
-IF you are using a LEXAR 1066X or something as equivalent, AND you know you aren't going to push anything higher than 30fps with normal 1080 or lower, to do professional work without much worry and get consistency then I would recommend 1.2.3

BUT!
If you are someone who wants to push the limits(over 30fps x 2K or 60fps x 1080) understanding its consequences and want to find out whats the best results they can get(might not be consistent) then I would recommend 1.1.3

ALSO keep in mind that some modules and features are firmware specific.

Post by: flostro on March 26, 2015, 07:15:20 PM
Do you have "DSLR Scale" activated on the AC7? It crops the incoming signal because Canon DSLRs used to output the image with a black frame around the image. FW 1.2.3 changed the output to Fullscreen so You don't need the feature on a 5DIII.
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.2.3
Post by: Brandon on March 26, 2015, 08:41:28 PM
Yes i have "DSLR Scale" off however it looks as tho the AC7 still recognizes that the signal is from the 5D3. If you look at the image.. may be a little hard to see but you can see all of the door handle and you can also see the wall thermostat on the camera LCD but is not in the AC7. I have a photo of it but I'm not used to how the HTML insert photo thing works.

I've ran some tests with MLV for about 45 minutes, trying to push it beyond limits (30/60fps, 3.5K, magic zoom or focus peaking while recording), but could not get a single pink frame or crash.

Tried on both 1.2.3 and 1.1.3.

Therefore, without proper feedback from those experiencing the issue, there's nothing I can do. I'm looking at you, itsDPmikey, bayard1965, swinxx, dubzeebass, and others who may have reported it in other threads.

I repeat the instructions:

@jordanwalkert What's sup Jordan here are my settings..

                     Auto Lighting Optimizer: OFF
                     Long exp. Noise Reduction: OFF
                     High ISO Speed NR: OFF
                     Highlight Tone Priority: OFF
                     Multiple exposure: Disable
                     HDR Mode: Disable HDR
                     Video Mode: 720p 60fps ALL-I

Magic Lantern: Overlay: Global Draw: On, all modes  (When Global Draw off you get more seconds like 25+ Seconds I was able to get @ full HD)
                                    Spotmeter: On
                                    Histogram: On
                                    Waveform: On
                      Movie:     Raw Video (MLV) 1920x649 aspect ratio 16:9 (In Resolution submenu make sure you have Card Warm-up On, mines is set to 128MB - Extra Hacks ON - Use SRM Job ON
                                                               Files > 4GIB (exFat) On and you can mess around with the rest) 

So far those are all the settings I'm currently using, still tweaking it to see how much more I can get out of the camera.  One more thing before you shoot any Raw videos make sure you format your CF card to ExFAT for longer recordings.  If you have any other questions feel free to ask take care.

@johannsebastianbach Don't really use the cinemascope function so I'm not sure about it's previous aspect ratio, plus I just got my 5D Mark III.  Been using other cameras with magic lantern 7D, 5D2 & 50D..

Post by: johannsebastianbach on March 29, 2015, 07:24:45 PM
With cinemascope I mean only the aspect ration 2.35:1

So if you choose 1280 mode for slow motion and choose aspect ratio 2.35,

Before it was 1920x504 (or508?), now it is 1920x490.

@johannsebastianbach  I just checked and it's  1920x490 in 2.35:1 aspect ratio.  I think before it wasn't the right pixel ratio, all I know is Magic Lantern Team Knows Best  :D.. it's only a few pixels less you won't really see any difference in the image.

To clear up the confusion about 720p mode and vertical pixels in 2.35:1 ratio: The computation of the squeeze factor wasn't always correct and a patch I made submitted recently fixes that.
The correct vertical squeeze factor is 5/3 = ~1.666x before it was reported as 1.61x
So in current magic lantern one should get a resolution of 1920/(2.35*1.66) = 490.

Quick question:

I have a Canon 5D Mark III and want to try ML. As of now I only have a single SD card but will get a CF card in the nearest future. Can I save my pictures and video files to the same card as Magic Lantern is installed on or do I need to memory cards?

Thanks, Jakob
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.2.3
Post by: rpt on April 05, 2015, 05:29:56 PM
Short answer:
Yes.

Caveat:
Dont format the card once you have ML loaded on it if you use only one card. If you want to format the card I would uninstall ML, copy ML files to a temp folder on the computer, format the card, Reload ML files from the temp folder and re-install ML. However, the development gurus may give you a shorter process.

Best practice (mine):
Get a SD card for ML. They are dirt cheap. You can get by with a 1 GB card. I have a 4GB card.

So I've installed ML on my SD card and as far as I know I'm recording to my Sandisk Extreme 64GB 120MB/s CF card. I have loaded the following modules: mlv_play, mlv_record and raw_rec. But when I record I get an error message about skipped frames after 8-15 second.

"Early stop (11) Didn't make it to estimated record time"

How do I solve this?

Your card only writes 60mb/s

And loading MLV_REC.mo and RAW_REC.mo at the same time doesn't make much sense.
Will really hurt only after activating both record modes in movie tab.

I upgraded the firmware on my 5D MK III to 1.3.3 and now the ML on my SD flashes but will not allow the camera to boot and has to be reset by removing the card and battery. Also the Eye Fi card will not allow the camera to boot as well. Is there a fix for this? Please send any tutorial that will let me regain my camera funtions.

Magic Lantern builds are always for a specific version of the Canon firmware. In the case of the 5D3, there are nightly builds for 1.1.3 and 1.2.3 firmware only. There is experimental code that provides 1.3.3 support but it is not well tested and you would have to build it yourself.

If you still want to use Magic Lantern, I'd suggest you downgrade back to 1.2.3 or 1.1.3. If you no longer want to use Magic Lantern, you should disable the bootflag on your camera by flashing the ML installer .fir firmware and waiting a minute for the bootflag to be disabled (as per the on-screen instructions). You might need to downgrade to 1.2.3 for this to work.

AL3X: I've ran some tests with MLV for about 45 minutes, trying to push it beyond limits (30/60fps, 3.5K, magic zoom or focus peaking while recording), but could not get a single pink frame or crash.

Tried on both 1.2.3 and 1.1.3.

Therefore, without proper feedback from those experiencing the issue, there's nothing I can do. I'm looking at you, itsDPmikey, bayard1965, swinxx, dubzeebass, and others who may have reported it in other threads.


Ok AL3X, I again did a few tests and had same issues.

23.976FPS

"Ok AL3X, I again did a few tests and had same issues.

I just watched the video.  Boy those pink flashes are very reminiscent of digital dropout you used to get on digital video tape.  Is it possible the write speed of the card is not fast enough?  Have you low level reformatted the card so it is not fragmented?  I'm curious if the card is fragmented, could it be trying to write to contiguous space and it causes dropout.

Well I'm no expert and can't really be sure what the cause is but I don't think its the card because I have 3 of them and all 3 get the same results. I have 2x 32gb LEXAR 1066X UDMA7 65 and 1 128gb LEXAR 1066x

Also One more thing that makes me think its not the cards is that just last night I upgraded to 1.2.3 and used the latest 1.2.3 build and recorded bunch of diff FRAMERATES and resulutions up to 2.5k wide cinematic ratio and NOT 1 single drop of frame or pink frames or glitch effect(did not test on all cards, assuming would be same results)

Again this is my own personal experience and thoghts that 1.2.3 is more stable and reliable.

But I'd like to get more of your opinion on the defrag situation which I don't think I have ever done. I always format cards IN THE CAMERA when I'm done offloading the files.

Instead of formatting as exFAT?

IMHO, I feel more confident when shooting in 113 versus 123* only because I like to be able to squeeze every ounce of speed as much as possible and I also don't really need the clean HDMI out nor the F8 autofocus fix....

*Unless I'm using it on paid gig when field monitors are required.

That's JM2C!

Yeah I understand trust me I know its pretty ironic since everyone says "1.1.3 is more stable", but what can I say this is my personal experience and I even provided some proof of it.

I'm having a frustrating problem with my 5D III ml 1.2.3. The intervalometer is not working constantly with CF Lexar 1066x 128g. Specially when used every 1, 2 or 3 seconds. ML is in a Sony SD class 10 16 gb.
¿Do anyone knows what is going on?

Im sorry if im not putting the post in the right place but I dont know how to do that. Any help is welcome too. ;)

Thanks.

Benchmark your CF-card first.
If results are ok (= not a faked card with inferior write rate) reset ML to defaults (backup ML\Settings).
Do not use Liveview. Disable "Image review". Just enable Intervalometer and start with 3 seconds interval. If running smooth you may try 2 and 1 seconds interval. Report results.

Thanks Walter, i run the card r/w benchmark test twice.  The result in the first one was 98.64 average and the second one 100.25. I think is ok ¿am i right? the .ppm file apearded on my sd intead of my cf im not shure ir i did it ok but i think i did.
Then i made the CF+SD write speed test and results were: SD: 28.8 MB/s and CF:122.1 MB/s
(sd card is supposedly 94MB/s) ¿Does the issue could come from the sd instead of the CF?

I tried the intervalometer below 3 seconds and i'm still having the problem . I'm not using live view and image review is deactivated...  ¿ any advices ?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Average tells nothing at all. Highest write rate for each card is interesting, however.
5D3's SD-card interface is limited to about 21 MByte/s write rate. You really got 28.8 written?

I run it again: SD 19.8 CF 121.4
i guess it was 18.8 MB/s  i made a mistake ;)
I changed the sd to see if that was the problem but the problem still there. The weird thing is that burst in raw is working perfectly, the problem is only with the intervalometer.

Hey guys,

I had a couple of shooting dates and even, as it didn't make problems on the testing, I also got the bad frames problem. Interesting thing is, that it was not only on one frame, but even two frames.

Please I need help, I have more shooting days this week and need to know, if earlier versions were more stable in case of bad frames. Does anybody has experience? I would like to keep firmware 1.1.3 because I don't get contiguous 50p on 1.2.3

Is the frame rate in your Canon menus set to 720p60? I've noticed if I have the Canon menu on 1080p24 or 1080p30 while setting ML to 48 or 60fps I get some corrupted frames.

It's 720p, 60p. Squashed mode. - And btw, the bad frames are happening in about 20% of my clips. I recorded  about 50 clips of 12 seconds (until the frame skips) and 10 of my MLV clips were compromised.

Here again, two frames in a row (which doesn't look like it's the cards:

Are you guys shooting MLVRaw or just RAW?  If MLVRaw, try shooting in RAW and report if you get this problem.  I haven't seen the pink frames with the latest build of 1.2.3 shooting RAW.  I have MLVRaw turned off.

@johannsebastianbach No Prob.. I would also recommend that you set your Shutter Speed to 1/120 - 1/125 for 60p it's a great rule, but unless you want more motion blur than it's clearly a creative choice.  Let me know how it goes Cheers..

Hello,

i am a new member here!
So first things first! Hi everybody and thanks for all the work on this wonderfull Firmware!

As a new owner of a used 5D Mark III wich I bought on eBay, I wanted to go for the Magic Lantern Installation
Actually I was on 1Ds Mark II before wich was not compatible with ML, so I am very exited to enjoy all the new Features ML will bring up!

I have one question due to the two Versions of ML for the 5D Mark III (5d.113 and and 5d.123).

The Download Page says the 5d.123 Version is supporting the new Autofocus Features of the 1.4x and 2x Televonverters from Canon.

Is there a major difference in the two ML Versions for the 5DM3? If yes, is there a side by side list of the differences, what is working and what isn't?
I have both Canon Converters and I work with both of them on my 70-200 2,8 IS USM Lens.

Is it good to go wit 5d.123 and have still all ML Features from 113?

Thanks for a quick guidance! I am new. :-)

BR,
derpuma

Hey johannsebastianbach,

Thanks for sharing your experience It helps others to see my point.

One of the major problems with this frame issue is that you can shoot a long video and as you cut and edit it ITS very possible that you can miss the pink frames because they are like 1 or 2 frames out of hundreds maybe thousands of frames depending on the length of your video. They are spread out so you have to go frame by frame to locate them and delete them.

In one instance I shot and edited an 8 min video. After finishing and rendering the video and getting ready to upload to internet I watched it and noticed the pink frames and I had to delete the rendered file and re-work on the project again.

So if some of you haven't already I would recommend that you go back and slowly check the frames and make sure a pink frame didn't sneak up on you.

IF YOU ARE USING ML FOR SERIOUS PROJECTS*(JOBS)
I highly recommend using 1.2.3 because it is more stable(reliable). I understand that you might not get the same recording length results but at least you will get usable footage.

That's because crop mode isn't suitable for slow mo's...

30fps is highest for crop mode otherwise you will get all kinds of crazy pink effects.

Is this what your referring to?

If you tend to use 3x crop mode for RAW/MLV recordings then best to shoot in anything up to 30fps.

UPDATE****

Today I had to do a shoot for baptism at the the river and it was that very beautiful sunny California weather that I'm so use to. Any who, I decided to downgrade to the latest 113(4/27/15 this morning) and try to tackle the issue with this pink/glitchy frame problem. I think I may have found the problem.

I always set my 5dm3 to 1080-30fps and in ML override fps to 23.976. This has been my personal settings and have always worked fine with no issues. The reason behind this method is because I do some shoots that require 30fps for tv and its easier to switch between 30 and 24 In ML instead of going into the canon menu everytime. Whenever I need 30 I turn off override and whenever I need 24 I turn in on simple as that.

Well Apparently FORME this has been the cause of the pink glitch frames. It just kinda came across my mind and I decided to test it out right what the heck why not.

I recorded 3 min with CANON 30FPS with override ON to 24fps            and              3 min with 3 CANON 24fps with NO fps override.

As you may already have assumed,  the one with override ON came out with pink glitching frames AND the one with no ovveride came out all 4320 Frames came out clean. I did the same test again and got same results. So I now have decided to keep the 113 and not use override in ML and just take an extra second or two and make the necessary changes in the CANON menu.

Well this was my personal experience. If this was helpful to ya I'm glad if not  sorry.

Please try this out and see if you get the same results.

THANKS FOR READING!

I noticed, that I got extremely many (same kind of) bad frames, when used 67fps -override, so this could be a indication for it.

I shot for about five days over 350GB with different 113Nightlys, with bad frames almost every second/third MLV's. Now I have one last shooting day ahead this weekend and will test it. Thanks in advance, you will hear from me.

And by the way, for changing the fps in slow-motion. One could switch between NTSC 59,940fps and (in my case) continuous PAL 50.000fps very quickly trough MyMenu Settings.

I am going to keep that in mind for tomorrows shoot.

Sort of off-topic but I need to get an external viewfinder/monitor for my 5d. I work on a lot of CGI stuff and being in front of the computer isn't helping my eye condition out. I can't rely on my eyes and the tiny 5d screen anymore. So before I go and spend some of my moms money, can anyone recommend me a Monitor that obviously has HDMI supports MagicL  but also has dci high end port options because I'm going to probably upgrade to sf700 or RedEpic or C300MII. I don't want to buy a separate monitor If I can just buy one now that I can use later for other cameras.

IT MUST SUPPORT MAGIC LANTERN

So the real question is, Can I get any monitor as long as it has HDMI support? I'm looking at the Atomos Shogun, Video Devices PIX-E7, Odyssey 7Q 4K, and DP7-PRO OLED

ALSO.. I know that some of these monitors also are recorders but I just need a monitor not necessarily looking for recording feature.

UPDATE****


Bad news  :-[

(http://s27.postimg.org/3w04kyi4z/Screen_Shot_2015_05_14_at_20_37_51.png)

These are 170 GB of MLV's. I marked MLV's with pink frames red... Its interesting how they are clustered nearby together. Some of the clips even have six pink frames. I tried to figure out if it had something with the aperture or shutter changes but the conclusion is that the bug is very random.

FPS Override was turned of.

My GlobalDraw was turned on everytime I shot, so I will continue testing with GlobalDraw off next time. I think 4000 Frames is not enough for checking :D

I really would like to figure out where the problem comes from :)


btw, should we open another Thread for this problem?

Bad news  :-[



When I turned off FPSoverride out of the 10gb clips I only got 1 single pink frame. But at this point its more frustrating to find out that its really a "random" type of issue.

one more thing that I noticed: When you hit record you will either see a RED, YELLOW, or GREEN camera status icon. I noticed that the clips that end up with the pink frames(other than  high FPS) are clips that had either the YELLOW or RED status while recording.  Ironically you get YELLOW or RED due to HIGH FPS settings.

itsDPmikey: What nightly are you running with 1.1.3?

I recently noticed some pink/bad frames in some clips a shot a while back and wondering which version you were running. Would also be interested in knowing which nightly you are running Alex, as you say you don't experience this issue?

itsDPmikey, I'm not sure that FPSoverride is the issue, as I was running 25fps Canon menu as well as in the ML settings. When I get a chance I'll run some tests and see what I find.

Is there another thread for this issue yet?

Hello all,

I'm just starting out with ML on my 5D3 (1.2.3. with most recent nightly build). My initial results have been great as far as obtaining a wider tonal range but on the downside, I've been getting lots more noise than when I shot simply in H.264 without ML. I've also been getting vertical lines in the shadow areas (as if I had underexposed a high ISO shot by 3-4 stops and brought it back in Cam Raw). My workflow is:

shoot MLV - convert with RawMagic - apply LUT in Davinci Resolve Lite 11 (followed most common workflows on the net) - export to ProRes 4444 - edit in FCPX. I know Davinci Lite has no noise reduction but I've tried the AE/ACR (with noise reduction) workflow and I still get lot's more noise than I'd expect (more than H.264). Any ideas? Thanks!

Honestly I always update whenever I see an update available. I will tell you that I have gotten the pink glitch frame on every release since march. Right now I'm on the latest May 2nd release.

I had accidentally deleted some files from my CF card and I used LEXAR Image Rescue 5 that came with it and recovered deleted files. I then had to format the card and decided to read up on the diff format options available and Exfat is the best so I did an exFAT format on the computer and got the card in to the camera and shot a 17min non stop 1920x1080 24FPS video which no pink frames. I had realized that I had formatted the cards originally in FAT32 which was limiting the cards to 4gb increments. Please read more on exFAT and other formats.

Also the recording status icon in fat32 use to be yellow and red in 1920x1080 24fps
With exFAT its just green! and I even shot over 2K at 2560x1024 24FPSoverride, and it was still green with no skips. This was AMAZING to say the least. So I recommend to get your cards formatted in exFAT

Try this and please let me know how it works out for you.

Found some interesting behavior for ETTR using the latest nightly for 5D3 1.2.3. When Live View and ETTR are both enabled, and ETTR is set to always on, the camera will push the exposure WAY right after taking a photo. I had the longest shutter speed set to 10" in the settings; after taking a picture the shutter speed had been set to 10" and the ISO had been set to 12,800. This doesn't happen when using the viewfinder.

Any ideas?

Talking about pink frames. I am using magiclantern-Nightly.2014Aug07.5D3123 Recently on a Shoot i had to record roughly 4 mins of footage (6000+ frames) was recording at a resolution of 1920x768 (aspect ratio 2.50:1) FPS 23.927 NO FPS Override.

not a single Pink Frame.

So far this nightly build works a treat. I would suggest users who are experiencing Pink Frames to try using that version.

Sorry for the dumb questions but I still have some:

- Do I install ML on an SD card and put the extra fast CF card in the second slot? Or do I forget about the SD slot and everything goes in the CF?

- Is the uninstallable bootflag modification still present in both 1.1.3 and 1.2.3? Or is it possible to completely and cleanly uninstall ML in both firmwares?

I'm mainly trying to decide whether to go with 1.1.3 or 1.2.3. I won't need the official Canon things in 1.2.3 but there's some extra info in the 1.2.3 thread that isn't present here and I just want to make sure the 1.1.3 also have these options (clean uninstall, optional EosCard, ML restores itself after format etc).

I'm mainly trying to decide whether to go with 1.1.3 or 1.2.3. I won't need the official Canon things in 1.2.3 but there's some extra info in the 1.2.3 thread that isn't present here and I just want to make sure the 1.1.3 also have these options (clean uninstall, optional EosCard, ML restores itself after format etc).


You can either split the process like so
. Put ML on SD card and use the CF card for recording files (this is highly recommended and easy to set up in the ML menu).

or

. If your SD card is fast enough with enough space you can put both the ML and set to record files on the SD as well. (not recommended. Only if you have no CF option and only have SD card)

*Yes its possible to completely and cleanly uninstall ML in both firmwares. Whether you are on 113 or 123, when you enter in canon menu to update firmware(while firmware card is in the camera) Install ML and when it installs and says "done", At that point it will start to count down. IF you want to uninstall let it count down all the way and that will uninstall it. THAT'S IT.

currently there are some issues with the 113 with pink frames and whatnot, but this wasn't always the case its only been happening in the most recent builds(have not tested the June build yet)
123 is steady but lacks some options so it depends on what you are doing.

I have formatted my CF card in exFAT and I'm using 1.1.3 again, everything is good for me so far.

itsDPmikey, thanks a lot, you really helped. I was mainly thinking about 113 because it's said to have slightly faster write times but I already have a sufficiently fast CF card so I guess I'll stick with 123.

Just one last thing, should I format both the SD and the CF in exFAT or do I leave the SD card with ML in FAT32?

Thank you very much.

Yes but it is not necessary due to the fact that ML FIRMWARE files don't take much space at all and don't require very high speeds. It's more the CF(or the card that is being recorded on) that really improves when you format to exFAT.

The maximum file size for FAT32 is 4gb, which if you record in raw and depending the FPS and resolution size, you will pass 4gb very quickly like around 5min or less. This is why FAT32 is not recommended.

exFAT allows a maximum file size of 16eb. That's 16 EXABYTES! As in 16 QUINTILLION, As in 16,000000000000000000...so as you can obviously do the math that's an incredible amount of difference.

So theoretically if you have a card that is 4gb or less, it's not really necessary. But OBVIOSULY if it's a card with more than 4gb space then yes exFAT that lil sucker!

NO

Code: [Select]
The 1.3.3 firmware [b]also known as the[/b] AMLF(Anti-MagicLantern Firmware) by CANON, was produced in efforts to [b]STOP [/b]people from using MagicLantern.

What does AMLF 1.3.3 actually fix/do? Well lets take a look at what CANON has to say.
[b]Details http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer?pageKeyCode=prdAdvDetail&docId=0901e02480e37761

Firmware Version 1.3.3 incorporates the following improvement and fix:[/b]

"[i]Improves the AF controllability when shooting in Live View mode with a wide-angle lens (fixed focal length or zoom).
Corrects some incorrect indications on the “English” and “Russian” menu screens.[/i]"

...thats it? Yes that's it.

In other words, this firmware update is absolutely useless. [b]BUT[/b]! What CANON did not include in this release details was that they wrote this firmware strictly for MagicLantern users to stop us and you don't have to be a "brain surgeon" to understand this.

One of the things CANON [b]DID NOT[/b] [s]disclose [/s]is that with this new firmware you can't downgrade, at least not as easily as you could before, now you need to be on the computer and have it connected to the Camera. In reality this is not too different from what Microsoft was trying to do with Xbox One, taking the rights away from the people.

One of the most Obvious things about CANON is that they [b]OVERPRICE [/b]their products. Primarily their cameras.

You can [b]accomplish [/b]just about [b]anything [/b]with 5D if not more than lets say the c100 and some of the CANON'S other high priced cameras.

For this primary reason, CANON has tried to find a way to stop the MagicLantern use on their cameras.
Consider what you can do with some of the lower end EOS cameras with MagicLantern installed, some INCREDIBLY WONDERFUL things. So you may just ask yourself.. why spend thousands when you can spend hundreds for the same thing if not BETTER! this obviously isn't something that CANON finds favorable.

Instead of lowering the prices of their cameras to reasonable prices, they continue with their foolishness by taking away from the people what BELONGS to the people.

If I paid for it and now its mine, I should be able to do whatever I want do with it. Right? I guess CANON doesn't think so.


I've blabbered on enough about this.
All in all, you are [b]NOT[/b]! missing out on anything by not installing a useless update like 1.3.3

Can anyone tell me why even though I have 'Frame Skipping' turned off, once I convert my MLVs do cDNGs and import them to After Effects, I occasionally get a message telling me there's a missing frame in my footage?

So far it's only one single frame per video and when I look for it, the actual file isn't there (it goes from something like M25-151800026.dng to M25-151800028.dng).

That's weird because when recording, the camera/recording icon often shifts from Green to Yellow but it absolutely never becomes Red and the camera never stops recording.

I'm having a hard time figuring out if that's my card having issues to keep up or something else. I also wonder why ML isn't stopping the recording once it skips a frame.

You may post this under "Share Your Videos (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?board=19.0Share Your Videos)" section for future references but Thanks for sharing anyways.

I also like to see someone not being afraid to push the blacks down... It's so nice and which ISO did you use for the 2nd clip?

Please kit regarding symposium updates and would definitely love to attend.

why in the hell is davinci resolve crashing upon selecting magic lantern raw file?

That's probably due to the Hollywood Gods preventing us from a breakthrough with the colorgrades from MLV RAW that DR produces....

Kidding but I am experiencing the same exact issues on both of my Mac's which doesn't have a decent graphic card installed in order to hold up with the GPU hungry app in DR.

Though admittedly I haven't tried the newly released Beta DR 12 version yet.

However, I'm happy with how AE (ACR) gives nice debayering results regardless of its slow process in the workflow.

Try processing the MLV Raw with RAWMagic first.  This will make a folder of RAW CinemaDNG files (all RAW).  Bring into Resolve and voila.  Works here!

Off topic:

Is there a reason why you rather use RAWMagic besides the other decent converters that give proper required tags unlike this one?

Even if it's not supported by ML?

Hi Guys,

I've read this entire thread. I currently have a 5D II with ML installed (thank you!) and will be getting a 5D III soon to put ML on it. As far as I can discern the general consensus in this thread is to go with the v1.1.3 firmware and ML build over v1.2.3 but both nightly builds have been updated quite a lot since a1ex posted this thread back in March 2015:

http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=14704.0

May I just ask, is it still the general consensus to go with v1.1.3 over v1.2.3? I won't be doing much (if any) slow-mo shooting and will be predominantly shooting 23.976 the whole time. If I do need slow-mo then it'll be subtle so I'll probably just use a higher shutter and Twixtorize it in post.

My prime concern is stability and having no pink / corrupted frames (something I've experienced on the 5D II but have overcome by turning off Global Draw when recording and using a mask on my Viltrox DC-70 HDMI field monitor to frame the shot) but unfortunately this thread seems split between which is more stable. Some citing v1.1.3 as the most stable, others the opposite.

Obviously, my other prerequisite is to be able to use my HDMI field monitor without issue. I take it that's nothing to do with v1.2.3's ability to output "clean" HDMI and v1.1.3 will still output to a field monitor with no problems?

So, what's the general consensus now, at this moment in time, with regards to which build and firmware to go with?

Cheers,

Mark.

...

According to this page, http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/ (... and selecting the "5D3.123" option)

You should use the Canon v1.2.3 firmware and compatible Magic Lantern software overlay if you need:

"1) Clean HDMI out (ziggy note: This means if you want clean HDMI Out for the purpose of recording the HDMI output onto an external HDMI recorder.*)
2) Dual monitor support
3) AF at f/8 with teleconverters"

If you don't need those things, stay with Canon firmware version 1.1.3 and compatible Magic Lantern overlay. Yes, Canon firmware version 1.1.3 will output to the HDMI port a viewable signal with an external monitor, but the monitor will also display additional camera information.* It will not generally be a preferable video signal to record for editing and color grading purposes.

-------------------------------------------

*OK, the Clean HDMI signal is also a better video quality, as well as not having any additional camera information. For an explanation of the differences:

Hi,
I am very new to ML, infact I have not loaded it at all, anywhere.
I have a Canon 5d Mk111 that has ver 1.3.3. firmware, the latest.
The latest that ML supports is ver 1.2.3, I think.....
If I am on the right track is there a ML version for canons newest firmware, as I can't go back to an older version of firmware (Can I?) 
Unfortunately I am crap at programming, never got my head around BBC basic, how dumb is that...
But this Magic Lantern by all accounts is not something to be ignored.
So if anyone knows if there will be a version coming sometime I would be very interested.
Thanks for reading
Geoff

You need EOS Utility v2.x. If you have v3.x installed you may want to get rid of it and download EOS Digital Solution Disk v29.0A or v29.1A from Canon's support site. Download Firmware v1.2.3 or 1.1.3 (both versions are supported and have their pros and cons) using the links provided in Downloads -> Download Nightly Builds.
Connect your cam (photo mode M preferred) to your computer and downgrade via EOS Utility.

Wipe file from card, copy extracted nightly build contents to card and run firmware update.

Is there a clean list of what features this build of ML has over the stock Firmware?  In respect to the 5d Mark3.

I have a T3i, and I know for that camera it opens up many features, but the 5d has many more builtin features over the T3i that fill in the gap of what ML offers. 

Thank you in advance.

Hi everyone, I'm new here.
It's my first day with Magic Lantern into my 5D3, and I had a movie recording stopped automagically message (when I tried to shoot in crop mode).
This is my set:
-firmware downgraded to 1.2.3;
-2015Apr28 Nightly Built;
-SanDisk Extreme Pro CF 256GB (ExFAT formatted via OSX Utility Disc - NOT in camera) and this is the UNIQUE card in the camera (ML files are stored in the root directory) so the card is in SLOT 1 (so no Low Level Format option possible);
-Canon Menu: Movie rec. size 1920x1080 24p ALL-I;
-Magnification: x5 (ISO and STOPS change into red on the screen);
-ML Menu: Movie > RAW video ON, 3584x1320;
-lens: 35mm f/2.0 IS USM (in ManualFocus mode, but with stabilizer ON).
I press Start button (camera icon on the screen is red) and immediately arrives the message: movie recording stopped automagically.

I tried other resolutions (always with x5 magnification): 2048x1152 gives me 8 or 9 seconds, then again the stopping message (ISO, STOPS and Camera icons always red).

I tried also 1920*1080 in crop mode: 30 seconds with Camera icon yellow, after that icon becomes red, and at 40 seconds again the stopping message.

In FullFrame mode (simply without magnification activated) the Camera icon is green and all works fine.

What could be the issue in crop mode? Perhaps the CF card is not fast enough? (But it declares 150MB/s writing.) Could it be the NOT-in-camera formatting method I used? Perhaps 256GB is too much for the CF card? Could it be something I didn't set correclty in ML menu? Something else?

Please, I hope you want to help me. Thanks.

I thought I read somewhere that the larger cards have inconsistent results. I have been using and old 1000x komputerbay 64 gb. Works great. Need to stock on those if there still recommended. Also lexar has so good 64gb cards too. One other thing that will help is on the 5d3, its best to run ML off and SD card. Oh yeah and with 3k, you wont get many frames. Maybe this will help.

Hi,

I've just installed the ML in my canon 5d mark iii, And at the beginning it's all right, but when I want to put the second card in the second slot, the camera doesn't works.

I read that you have to introduce the compact flash when the camera say please restart your camera in green color, so turn it off and put the memory card. But in this moment I did and it doesn't turn it on.

The camera never turn it on with 2 memory cards.

Do you know what can I do?

Thanks for all.

Anyone know why magiclantern-Nightly.2015Jun09.5D3123 (Nightly build 2015 Jun09 5D3123) was pulled for the 5D MKIII with 1.23 firmware?  It's seems to have worked.  I still have it loaded on my camera.

Does anyone know why?

I was actually wondering the same thing. I went to check the 5D3.123 nightlies and noticed not only has the June 09 build been pulled from the menu, the last available 5D3.123 build is from April. unfilmde's post was the only one I could find that mentioned that build being pulled. I also still have the June 09 2015 build for 5D3.123 running on my camera.

I apologize if I've missed something, but has anyone said why that build was pulled or why the 5D3.123 build hasn't been updated since?

I needed to update my camera from 1.1.3 to 1.2.3 (need AF with F8).
But I'm missing some features from 1.1.3 ML builds, unless I missed them in the menu - can't find the fine tune for the live view image, like contrast and saturation boost. Was very helpful when shooting flat (Cinestyle pic profile).

I've updated the 1.2.3 source code, but I'm too tired to test it. Can anyone with compiling skills take a look at it, before enabling the next nightly build?

Things that might require attention:
- Canon bottom bar should not conflict with ML's (behavior should not change from past builds)
- changing picture style settings from ML, including the "Auto" picture style

Other things worth mentioning, since last build:
- Diffraction-aware DOF info (http://magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=15092.0) (garry23)
- Fine resolution control in mlv_rec (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-request/627/added-fine-control-on-top-of-x-resolution/diff) (rbrune)
- AF/MF warning (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=15258.0) (Andreasb242)
- New installer (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-request/631/new-installers)

Most other changes were either small fixes, refactorings, or things concerning other cameras.

Just because I'm not clear on the terminology, does "- no full-screen magic zoom (I never used it anyway, but was nice)"

mean that when you press the 5x or 10x zoom button (for critical focus) that you can no-longer record in that mode? Just asking because I was looking to try it out and rather than dig around trying to find a post somewhere on this huge forum, I just thought I'd ask if that's okay?

No, it doesn't. "Magic zoom" is something that popups on screen when you rotate focus ring in manual focus mode and in crop mode is pretty useless, imho.

Why there is no port for 1.3.3 yet?

I saw some old threads about it's port, but are date in march or so, and besides the date, those threads were quite positive about it's portability, but suddenly I can't find any information about it and there is no port.

Also, why the latest compilation of the 1.2.3 is from April? I woudl like to acquire an external monitor/recorder to have a backup of all the footage (I record in RAW but I would like to record also in the monitor through HDMI) but it seems there is no up to date build for the 1.2.3.

Just asking because I can't find all this information in here while looking for it.

It's not perfect and I'm always wanting improvements too, but I use the April software with 1.2.3 so I can use an external monitor (focusing without it is to hard) and rarely have an issue.

I assume the lack up updates is because they are working on some big new things, which may or may not have anything to do with the 5Diii.

i read about turning of focus peaking. is there maybe another solution? Did someone find something out jet?
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.2.3
Post by: juang3d on December 15, 2015, 09:44:01 AM
Hi monky.

I'm not having this problem at all, I just saw it in one shot while using mlv, I use the hardware focus peaking (the one that uses extra sharpness in the focused area) and I disable any drawing in the live view, plus right now I'm recording in RAW instead of MLV and without sound, I use an external audio recorder, and from what I can see in the screen I achieve a sustained writing rate of 101Mb/s more or less.

So maybe if you do all that you may get rid of the pink frames :)

@lostfeliz what things are not working correctly with 1.2.3? I'm planning in acquiring an external monitor as a review/backup system and I assume I'm gonna need to upgrade to 1.2.3

Also, let me ask for a newer build for 1.2.3 please :) (to anyone with the ability to do that reading this)

Hello,
i kinda searched everywhere for the answere but i can't find anything about it. Is there any possible way to use audio remote shot on the 5d mark III? It's a feature that i want to use for an experiment and i really loved ML since i installed it. It would be awesome for me. Maybe this question and the answer is already on this forum but don't hate me, i searched alot with no success.

New build. I've only tested the changes on 1.1.3, so you may want to wait for some feedback before upgrading.

What's new, since last 1.2.3 build:
- Histogram tweaks (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/667/histogram-tweaks)
- Diffraction-aware DOF info (http://magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=15092.0) (garry23)
- Fine resolution control in mlv_rec (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-request/627/added-fine-control-on-top-of-x-resolution/diff) (rbrune)
- AF/MF warning (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=15258.0) (Andreasb242)
- New installer (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-request/631/new-installers)
- a few minor fixes

Too early to say Merry Christmas? :P

Ooooooo the new installer dumps rom and has you save it somewhere! I don't know all the under the hood details but would that make it easier to recover if someone messes up the install?
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.2.3
Post by: a1ex on December 21, 2015, 08:10:36 AM
Yes, that's the idea. I hope we'll never have to use them, but... just in case. Before, the ROMs were saved silently under ML/LOGS (and it's still done whenever the ROMs are not found there, for example, after you format the card).

So far I've reflashed my 550D and 60D with ROMs from other users, and then back with my original ROM, so there are some chances for this to work, if anything goes wrong.

I have a 5dIII-113 and a 5dIII-133, downgraded to 123 without any problems. Hey, you can always upgrade to 133, once (if) ML becomes available. The reason it's not here yet may be, that 123 is good enough. I have one of both, just for comparison, and when I feel, that I know enough, I might downgrade all the way to 113. The up/downgrade doesn't disturb me, since I'm convinced it won't interfere with product warranty.

I just turned 63, and when I can do it, you must accept, that the process is very much foolproof.

After being a very satisfied user of ML on my 7D, I would like to install it on my 5DIII, but because of warranty I was wondering if there is a possibility to disable the bootflag.
Is simply updating to the normal Canon firmware enough and if not, does some of you guys have experiences with warrenty-issues and ML?
THNX! :)

@Peatsmoke Yes you can.. I have Magic Lantern running on my 5D mark III Recording RAW Video for 6+ months now no problems not even one Pink Frame yet.  I know for ver 1.1.3 it's soo.. easy to install, and very easy to uninstall I've done it a couple times Ver 1.2.3 is a bit different.  From my understanding & from what I've read you should be fine with Warranty because Magic Lantern Runs on the SD Card.

http://wiki.magiclantern.fm/faq#does_it_void_my_warranty
There had been some cams sent to official support sites with bootflag set and none made legal trouble.

Updating/downgrading with original firmware won't change cam's bootflag. You can test it on your 7D.

For uninstallation follow instructions in first post.

I'm just so happy with my two lanterns 113 and 123 - thanks, A1ex once again, you sure know how to give Christmas gifts - and I just want to wish all of you a very happy New Year.

The awards having ML far outweighs any warranty issues. I have been through all the threads on this site, and never once heard or read about somebody losing their camera warranty because of a set bootflag.

Once more: Happy New Year to everyone; I'm very much looking forward to visit ML Universe come 2016.

That makes no sense ... Just simply run ML off a decent SD card and that way you can get the most out of recording onto CF (w speeds of at least 1066x) card separately.

I currently have 1.1.3 running a Feb 2014 build of magic lantern.  I'm shooting a live event coming up, so I will need Canon firmware 1.2.3.  What's the best way to update to Canons new firmware?  Can I simply overwrite the ML firmware currently installed with Canons 1.2.3 and then reinstall ML after?  Or do I need to reload Canon 1.1.3, then upgrade to 1.2.3, then install magic lantern again?

You can not overwrite ML with Canon firmware because ML does not change original firmware and does not replace Canon's stuff.

If you have to upgrade Canon firmware there are several ways to do it. Do you have a spare card (< 32 GByte)?

Take one of the "old" cards.
Format card using your cardreader.
Format card using your cam.
Insert card into cardreader and copy Canon's original firmware file 5D300123.FIR to card.
Insert card into cam and run firmware upgrade.
Remove card.

Take your 32 GB card, insert into cardreader and backup ML directory and autoexec.bin and *.FIR.
Remove ML directory, Autoexec.bin and *.FIR from card.
Copy extracted nightly build contents (ML for 5D.123!) to card.
Insert card into cam and startup. Done.

Downgrade to 1.2.3 or 1.1.3.
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.2.3
Post by: axelcine on January 23, 2016, 07:27:32 PM
Got one of both. The ML/113 is so smooth and glitchless to work with. The 123 is almost exactly the same, but...

When updating firmware to 123 Canon more or less redesigned some of the internals in the 5D3 to allow for direct HDMI, correct an AFMA issue and a lot of other stuff. So when ML was updated to 123, some of the functions had to be changed, not a lot and thankfully not the most important. I use both 113 and 123 every day. 5D3 is a cam. ML makes it my friend.

If you don't need direct HDMI or very precise AFMA, install the 113, or else the 123 firmware with EOS Utility - you may get the firmware here:

Just upgraded to 1.2.3 with December 21, 2015 build as part of experimenting with external monitoring. I quickly realized that as long as i don't need to record "clean HDMI output" but just see everything on big screen, there is no difference. My hope was to get ML screen on 11' in Full HD with 1.2.3. :) Record time slightly less - let's say, 13 sec average versus 16 sec non crop Full HD 30 FPS. And Level indicator is not working!!! Downgrading again :(
Title: Shutter Setting
Post by: gsealy2010@gmail.com on January 25, 2016, 08:13:41 PM
When doing regular videos (no ML) with my 5DIII I have been told to set the shutter at twice the frame rate.  So for 30  FPS I would set the shutter to 1/60. 

My question is -- Now that I have ML  do I need to or should keep doing this? I tried other settings and it doesn't seem to have any impact.

I would like the freedom to set shutter faster so that I can open the lens more without the need for a ND filter.   At a shutter speed of 1/50 (for 24 fps) and in shutter priority mode, the camera set the aperture to f11.  I shot some video. I then changed to aperture priority mode and set the aperture to f5.6, which is more so where I wanted it.  I recall the shutter going to 1/320 or so.  I shot more video.  It didn't seem to make a difference in the final product, and the final video was properly exposed. 

I would love to hear comments on this.  Thanks. 
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.2.3
Post by: lostfeliz on January 25, 2016, 08:46:54 PM
With a faster the shutter speed you capture less of the motion. The result is less motion blur. During playback it might not be too noticeable. It depends on the action in the shot. If there are quick motions of subjects and you are shooting at 1/240 or faster it could give you a jittery look. Even at 1/120 it can sometimes change the feel. Some filmmakers use a faster shutter for specific effect, but the reason 1/48 or 1/60 has become the norm is because of the natural feeling the motion has to the eye. There are no rules, but just be aware of the effect it gives in the context of what you're trying to achieve.
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.2.3
Post by: axelcine on January 25, 2016, 09:07:29 PM
I like that you try a more "filmic" look with 24fps and a 1/50s shutter (eq. just about 180 degrees shutter rotation "from the good old celluloid days"...). Higher shutter speeds do like in stills: freeze movement - in movies movements become somewhat staggering, which can be useful on rare occasions - see Saving Private Ryan.

With very low ISO you may be able to avoid ND's, but on the other hand: Once you get used to your ND it becomes a friend, and those apertures below 4 are just wonderful for intimacy and drama; big landscapes and wide angle work aren't so critical with higher apertures. Looking forward to see the results.

See Po Chan's / Shane Hurlbut's Canon 5DII iconic short movie The Last Three Minutes, one of the movies that got Canon started with DSLR video in earnest; https://vimeo.com/10570139

I have been using ML successfully on a 5D2 for some time and have just upgraded to the 5D3.  This comes with the V. 1.3.3 firmware and the Canon firmware 'upgrade' notes state the following (pasted from their website):

- 'Once the EOS 5D Mark III camera is updated to Version 1.3.3 (or later), it cannot be restored to a previous firmware Version (Version 1.0.7 through 1.2.3). '  (My italics).

 In order to add ML I know that I will however need to do just that.  Do I therefore ignore the Canon statement and just proceed with the V. 1.2.3 downgrade anyway?  Of course, technically I have not upgraded to 1.3.3 in the first place, as it is the original firmware as supplied with the body.

Sorry if I am being a nuisance - I don't want to cause unnecessary problems with my new acquisition, but would like to continue to have the invaluable extras that I enjoyed on the 5D2.    Many thanks for the excellent work of all your software wizards.

The part about "cannot downgrade after this firmware is installed" (wording may differ) is not new but still incorrect.
Only in 5D3 1.3.3 Canon made an effort to disable downgrading. In-camera downgrade is actually blocked and you have to use EOS Utility v2.x to downgrade from 1.3.3.

Try latest nightly based upon fw 1.1.3 and downgrade before to check if that happens over there too.

Need some help with Motion Detection.

I am running Nightly.2015Dec20.5D3123 and unable to get my camera to fire in Frame Difference mode of Motion Detection feature. The other 2 options of Exposure Difference and Steady Hands are working as expected. The left hand top corner constantly shows Motion level: 0. I tried all sensitivity levels and detection area options, but all in vein. Can somebody please help? Intended use is photographing water drops.

Regards,
Guru

Hey guys, I have a quick question for ML.
Do you think is it possible to have an "AUTOMATIC " level correction function in ML?

I know ML already has a green level meter function in LiveView mode and Canon has it's own level meter in viewfinder mode.
What I mean is, with the AUTOMATIC level correction,  you don't need to correct to rotate pictures when taking pictures at first.
With a G sensor, canon DSLR can rotate portrait image automatically.
Moreover, with the function, you can always take a picture not askew. (You can ON/OFF on the menu, for sure.)

I think this function would be possible fixing firmware, what do you guy's think on this?

Dear a1ex, thank you for the info.

But I don't mean a post-processing after taking photos, I mean a correcting level processing from the beginning when taking pictures.
Even though I try to take a skewed picture, it corrects automatically.


Plus 1) if it's possible, it would be better to process without rotating and cropping.

Plus 2) The reason why I ask you for this is I saw a small device attachment to 6mm DV camcorder with the same function. (REAL-TIME auto level correction device.)

Having sorta similar problem as previous poster with latest build (magiclantern-Nightly.2015Dec20.5D3123.zip). Getting dead/distorted frames within my clips using this version. Will hopefully try 1.1.3 version at some point, but need Canon's 1.2.3 firmware for my work.

In the meantime, any thoughts or ideas on what could be causing it or how to fix it, would be appreciated!

For people out there getting corrupt frames. The earliest 1.2.3 build I can find that doesn't produce corrupt frames is August 7th 2014.

In this build, debug logging had not yet been implemented in mlv_rec. Since, then corrupt frames are fairly rife in my experience, especially when shooting 50/60p.

The latest versions of 1.1.3 are clean as debug logging was disabled again since April 10th 2016.

I've done loads of testing to indicate debug logging is the primary cause of this issue.

I'm wondering if we can see a new 1.2.3 build with debug logging disabled in mlv_rec?

Thanks beauchampy! I actually just upgraded from the "magiclantern-Nightly.2014Aug07.5D3123" build" directly to the latest one and never noticed the problem before.

Guess I'll just go back to that one. Would be great to have the debug logging disabled in the newest one also, but until then I guess I'll stick with 2014Aug07 or try 1.1.3 at some point.

Hi Audionut,

thanx for reply, but unfortunately list of features is not the right answer. All the audio features suppose to be there for 5D3 (as one can see in list of features), but they does not show up. I'm mainly interested in Input source option.

BTW, modules are another problemfor me. Neither 5D3 nor 5D2 I have on the desk here is able to load mlv_snd (sound module). Both results in err while loading it.

Btw. I've got another question, should be in 5D2 forum correctly, but I believe You know the answer. When monitoring sound during live view on 5D2 I only hear left channel, is it a problem of my very camera, or it's normal and I mis a cable with some special wiring?

Just wondering in the newest 1.2.3 nightly (8-23-2016) if debug logging is disabled in mlv_rec again?

Reason I ask, is in reference to reply #1386 (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11017.msg167362#msg167362), it seems that may have been the problem for corrupt frames.

not sure if this is the right topic, but here we go:

specs:
5d3 1.2.3 With Nightly.2016Oct09.5D3123
FeelWorld 760 (1080p native 7 inch). I tested the monitor and it can display 1080p from my laptop. According the specs it can display @ 50/60//24 fps

camera settings:
I set the camera settings to mirror HDMI, PAL, 1920@24fps video
magic lantern settings to default.

But even what I try it always seems to output 1080i (50/60hz) over hdmi instead of 1080p @ 24

tried:
I tried ntsc, 25 fps, 24fps hdmi output as options, but it's not helping.
is it even possible or am I missing something?

@savale

I think thats normal, when I use the atomos ninja blade I can select in the ninja menu if I want to do pulldown to 25p when the camera outputs 1080i.

By the way if you only use it for monitoring 1080i should be fine, the camera will record to 24/25p internally.

Thank you Lars, recording is fine, but for focus pulling it's a bit easier when having 1080p instead of 1080i.
I finally found a solution for the monitor: When I put it to oversan full it seems to understand the 1080p signal inside the 50hz signal. (I set the camera to output 24p)

Just FYI it's the same as the Windows version. They both come with 5D300123.FIR and you just need to use EOS Utility to downgrade.

Hi Everyone,
     Oops, I have a new Canon 5D MKIII on the way and didn't know  about all these firmware issues with the Canon 1.3.3 firmware. Having purchaed a T2i 550D years ago, I've been looking forward to the opportunity to shoot RAW (even if the workflow is somewhat tedious), but have considered returning it due to the firmware issues. From reading some threads on this topic, it seems obvious that I need to downgrade to an earlier firmware (either 1.1.3 or 1.2.3). My questions are therefore:

                 Where can I find a very discriptive tutorial on how to downgrade to 1.1.3 or 1.2.3 using Windows 10.
                 I want to have "Clean HDMI Out" and "Dual Monitor Support" so which version should i downgrade to?
                 After downgrading to earlier camera firmware, I understand I  need to install basic ML, then set up for RAW recording, correct?
                 This being the case, how do you also set the 5DMKIII up for RAW after basic ML is loaded?
                 Is ML RAW set up using settings within basic ML firmware, or does RAW require another download?

Thanks guys.

tic: error: undefined Symbol 'mlv_record_get_free_slot'
plus more lines like this one

Any help highly appreciated!!

You deactivate the auto gain in the canon menu, not the ML menu.

Why is  1.1.3 recommended? When 1.2.3 has more posts in this thread then for  1.1.3? I just got 5d mark iii and I'm wondering which one I should go with.

You should read first post in 1.1.3. and make up your mind about which version you want to use for your projects.

I've just received my 5D MK III and am ready to downgrade to 1.2.3. Does anyone know where I can get the correct EOS Utility version for Windows 10 to perform the downgrade? I'm told that the EOS Utility version 2x is what I need, which means the most recent version offered by Canon with the 5D MKIII will not work (though I haven't tried it).

Thanks

"EOS Digital Solution Disk Software 29.1A" for Windows or OS X available via Canon Support USA web site.

Thanks Walter, I saw that but was looking for a 2x. I guess that should do it.

Update:  I installed EOS Utility Disk 29-1a for Windows, and downloaded the Canon 5D MKIII  Firmware v1.2.3 file from the Magic Lantern
               Downloads page. Using the above utility, all went well and I downgraded from 1.3.3 to v1.2.3.

   OK, I installed Magic Lantern without any problems, and now I'm ready to activate a RAW_REC.MO or MLV_REC.MO module. My question now is; what are the main differences between each of these modules for shooting RAW?

   Apparently some individuals were experiencing problems with external monitoring, i.e. (dropped frames and monitor freezing after a minute or so) when using mlv_rec.mo and advised to go with raw_rec.mo instead, as it was less problematic. These problems apparently went away after they began using a faster card.

   In any case, (not sure if it's relevant), but I will also be using an external monitor, so which module would it be best to go with?

   Oops, this is a continuation of my original question, but I'm now talking about RAW. Perhaps I should now move my discussion to the RAW thread?

Hello everyone,

Wanted to share my latest findings with the latest 5d Mk3 nightly build for 123. I recorded ML RAW and ML Sound and sent the signal to my Atomos Ninja Blade via Pro Res HQ. I didn't get a signal for sound in my Ninja Blade via HDMI, anyone know why?
