Title: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.1.3
Post by: a1ex on March 10, 2015, 11:53:40 PM
Looks like firmware 1.1.3 is here to stay, so I've built the installer.

Installation:
1) Format the card from the camera.
2) Make sure you are running Canon firmware 1.1.3 (http://pel.hu/down/eos5d3-v113-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.

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fa1ex.magiclantern.fm%2Fbleeding-edge%2Fnew-installer.png&hash=375847905bd3ed3b4b925e9340085933)

Background info
Most Canon firmware upgrades were usually minor (like fixing a typo in the Ukrainian language), so upgrading ML to latest firmware was pretty easy. Not so with 5D3 1.2.3.

Most important changes in 1.2.3 since 1.1.3 (source) (http://cpn.canon-europe.com/content/news/eos_5d_mark_iii_firmware_available.do):
- clean HDMI out
- dual monitor support
- AF at f/8 with teleconverters
- fixed an AFMA bug (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-request/611/support-for-5d3-firmwares-123-and-113-in/diff#comment-5666686)
- a bunch of minor fixes

Unfortunately, in order to implement the dual monitor feature, Canon made some major changes on the display side (changed some low-level registers) and LiveView implementation (which is now quad-buffered, while on 1.1.3 it's triple-buffered, just like in all other ML-enabled cameras). From ML's point of view, this resulted in the following differences:

- 1.1.3 is slightly faster (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=13446.0) when recording RAW/MLV (not much, only a few MB/s)
- fast zebras are not working on 1.2.3 or later, but they are OK on 1.1.3
- no full-screen magic zoom on 1.2.3 or later
- no brightness/contrast/saturation adjutments on 1.2.3 or later
- "DIGIC peaking" is a little more limited on 1.2.3 or later (only the basic mode is working, not the ones with fancy backgrounds)
- motion detection in "frame difference" mode does not work on 1.2.3 or later
- I'm not sure if corrupted frames (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=10443) are still an issue (if you experience them, try downgrading to 1.1.3)

Other than that, the two ML versions are pretty much identical.

Bottom line:
- if you need any of Canon's updates from firmware 1.2.3 or later, use 1.2.3 (and prepare for upgrading to 1.3.3)
- otherwise, consider downgrading to 1.1.3 (I did).

Note: the upgrade from 1.2.3 to 1.3.3 was a minor one, and porting ML is straightforward (chris_overseas already did it (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-request/605/support-for-5d3-firmware-133), I only need to sit down and try it).

I know, maintaining two firmware versions for a single camera is a hassle, but if we want to squeeze the last drops of performance from this camera, we have no choice. And, as you've guessed, fixing some of the above issues is quite hard.


Please discuss raw recording issues in the Raw Video (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?board=49.0) section of the forum, not here.

I second that @Quentin (love the crop-mode h.264 on the M) but not sure if it'll ever be possible on 5D3 because I think I may have remember someone mentioned awhile ago that it could be a hardware limitation regarding the FF sensor?

Correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm still dreamin' on it though...

I couldn't find this anywhere, I know the differences in FPS, but what are the differences in resolution between 1.1.3 and 1.2.3? Can we get 2K Cine straight out of 1.1.3?
I've only been running 1.2.3.

@goldenchild9to5:

Sure, you can by using the Shutter fine-tuning ( in ML menu: Movie > image Fine-tuning > Shutter fine-tuning > I set mine to +0.84 to get close to 1/48 ) and it actually shows 1/48.015 (+46 units).

I'm glad to see that 1.13 is still being supported!

It seemed that the nightly builds lapsed after August 7th of last year, but I see that they are being generated again (though I am not sure when this started, since I stopped looking after a while). Have there been any significant improvements/refinements?

I happened to buy a 5D3 wich was (as I figured by now) having ML installed and removed w/o the bootflag being disabled. Now I upgraded to 1.33 and can´t seem to remove the bootflag now. Thus I can´t run an Eyefi Card in my cam :(

Any ideas how I could remove the bootflag?

Thx in advance, Arndt

EDIT: ok, I figured it out by now, you can use EOS Utility to downgrade to 1.23, then use ML to disable the bootflag.

Have down'd  firmware from 123-113 and have been able to record 2560x1090 at 24p MLV raw+audio for min 14secs to a maximum of 27 secs using card spanning (KMB 64gb 1000x & Lexar sd 32gb 666) and have converted to MOV using latest version mirawviewer  , so far after about 25 test shots I have had no pink frames and only one dropped frame right at the beginning of one of the shots.
Its very hit and miss between record times (14-27secs) no mater what settings are turned on or off , but at the mo 15 secs is almost bankable .

Cheers
Jafa.

Hi,
I'm not sure if it's related directly to a bug in ML or in a raw video module. After recording some raw video, the camera says "busy". I've searched the topic, there seemed to be at least one person who experienced this issue, though noone answered. I'm running the latest nightly build "magiclantern-Nightly.2015Jun23.5D3113"
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.1.3
Post by: Danne on June 23, 2015, 04:21:24 PM
I,m having this issue a lot. I always have to restart the camera(5d mark 3) to get rid of the busy signal. I didn,t take the time to narrow it down but when googling it it could be the sd card, auto-focus, lens related. I,d suggest trying only m-mode with the lens, check without sd card if using one, and report back if that works.

I've seen this myself on several occasions and still am trying to narrow down this so called bug as well...

It may have to do with how I use back focus button that I have set in custom controls via Canon's settings.

I just take the battery out and put back in but we shouldn't have to constantly do that... Which build are you guys using?

Hey guys, I am new to the forum, and new to ML.  My camera was running 1.3.3 firmware, so I downgraded to 1.1.3 so I could install ML.  Everything went fine during the install, but now it seems that the camera will NOT turn on if I have an SD card in the slot?  I have to take the SD card out, remove the battery, and put the CF card back in to get it to turn on.

Is it a matter of ORDER that the cards or read?  Should I have done the install from the SD card rather than the CF card?  Bottom line is that right now I can't use both cards in the camera.

Thanks!

Format cards in cardreader, then format cards in cam.
Copy extracted nightly build contents to SD-card and run cam's firmware update.
Report results.
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.1.3
Post by: tpurifoy on July 08, 2015, 12:35:45 AM
Ok...I think the issue is the Bootflag thing.  My SD card is bootable, so I think it is doing exactly what the USERGUIDE explains will happen.

Formatting the card on the computer is fine, but putting it in the camera will not allow camera to come on.

I thought maybe I might be able to switch off the bootflag in order to use the card.  Specifically, it is an Eye-Fi card.  If there is an easy way to switch back and forth, I am willing to try it.  But we do have a need to use that card quite frequently.  I found a few discussions about a way to toggle it, but they didn't work for the 5D Mark III.

Post by: Walter Schulz on July 08, 2015, 03:33:55 AM
It doesn't matter if card is bootable or not. Problem will occur because cam with bootflag set will read card. 
You can reset cam's bootflag. Just reinstall ML and wait for timeout to set in.
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.1.3
Post by: Frank7D on July 08, 2015, 05:36:45 AM
If the card is not bootable, then the cam will not try to boot from it, regardless of bootflag being set.
Problem occurs if all three of these are true:
1 the card is bootable
2 cam's bootflag is set
3 there is no ml on the card

Post by: Walter Schulz on July 08, 2015, 06:43:36 AM
That's what I thought, too. But 2) is sufficient to make Eye-Fi cards unusable.
Cam will read card but Eye-Fi's firmware is messed up. It doesn't matter if card is bootable or not.
Older cards may work, though.

Hi, just downloaded the latently nightly build for Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.1.3

One thing i can't seem to figure out is that the Magic Lantern Liveview Screen Layout is no longer in color. All type is white, particularly shutter speed, ISO and white balance. Shutter speed and ISO no longer change from green to yellow to red. Is this new to the latest build? (the one linked to from http://www.magiclantern.fm/downloads.html)

Ah, Ok there was a Liveview Layout redesign, that stripped the colors out. I like the redesign, but i just checked the user guide to the nightly build and color coding for ISO changes is still in the guide. Is this now a menu setting you have to turn on?

Also, I can only see the new horizontal mini histogram when I'm shooting RAW. is this a RAW only option?

User Guide covers old "stable" v2.3. User guide for nightly build is in the making ... sort of.
Help for updated user guide is needed. Check http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11269.0

Histobar is RAW only. See Overlay tab -> Histogram

Hi Walter, thank you for answering my questions. Yes, that's what I was referring to the new nightly build guide still refers to color coding under the ISO section. Is this still current?

I do see posts in the "Bars Facelift" topic, talking about how the color coding has changed, no more green. Just red and orange, when the ISO setting is not optimal.

I guess my main question is, do the ISO and shutter speeds change color? or is there some other way to visually tell whether you're using settings that aren't optimal?

For 1080p24 in RAW you need about 83 MByte/s.

Raw is uncompressed data, many if not most 4k formats are compressed data. Compression makes such a big differance on file sizes so you can't really use that kind of logic unless the compression used is the same.
Many compressed 4k formats only use 100mbit/sek (12MB/sek) ML full hd raw uses around 86MB/sek...
Also as stated above your camera has it's own bottlenecks and hardware limitations.

I have installed the latest build and have used this software for a while. When I power up the 23.97 fps override shows for about 2 seconds then diswappears.
If I try to load it responds "B:/ML/H264.ini not found". Any help?

Looking for someone out there that has original 1.1.3 or 1.2.3 firmware for 5d3. I have 1.1.2 & believe I either need 1.1.3 or 1.2.3 to run ML version.  Please respond here or nicholas@wineconceptsintl.com  Thanks for the help! NK

Hey Alex, you mentioned in the main post that porting work for 1.3.3 has already been done. Is there any news regarding that post, do you need help testing or do you have other priorities right now? I flashed my cam to the newest firmware by accident and wanted to check first before downgrading again.
Thanks!
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.1.3
Post by: TK1979 on October 17, 2015, 12:39:02 PM
This is wonderful Alex!

Thank you for all your efforts on this amazing creation. I would like to mention that my hobby is underwater videography. And any questions i have had in the past have mostly been answered by this forum's topics which I am quite grateful for. And would like to add that the benefits of shooting raw underwater seem IMHO more beneficial than even on land.

The main 2 issues of light loss (full frame advantage on 5dmIII) and the fact that every 10ft (3m) you lose another source/color of light has made this process quite appealing and pleasing for me. I do admit the process in post is time consuming but for me it is worth the extra effort. There is nothing more disappointing that spending so much money on a trip and not getting the full experience on video for others to see.

My experience and benefits:
No need for red filters - cause even more loss of light (lumens) when added
Macro flips are also replaced with magic zoom (unfortunately i realized on my vids that it was not centered and was using V1.1.3 as advised)
You can also take pictures - which has now become such a pleasing addition to my dive experience
Bigger sensor than camcorders and far less expensive that other raw capable video cameras (with smaller sensors)
It's more beneficial to work around and master the limitations present in ML for video on the 5D than using a real video camera when comparing the results.
WB balance is a one button correction in post (especially when you have had the privilege of trying out capture one!)

I will hopefully be able to finish my video of Palau, Micronesia within the next few days and post a link from vimeo onto this site for anyone interested to see what an amature like me has been able to create. But please take into consideration that it is my first video in raw and I am no professional in any way or meaning of the word. I will have it mixed with some GoPro footage and Aerial footage but it will be quite noticeable which is which and is mostly (90%) my raw footage  :D

My process is the following: Please correct me or educate me if you think I am making a mistake. I have read many topics on this forum so it's pretty similar.

1. Shoot in raw (24p) in 1920x1080
2. Examine the results using ML Viewer (mark my ins and outs or basically what's usable whilst on the viewer) and adding the frame numbers (in/out) to the file name
3. Convert using RawMagic
4. Import into Capture One/Lightroom
5. Do all color corrections and image fixtures here (even lens correction)
6. Export in tiff 8bit (find it is more than good enough when compared to 16 bit) and less time consuming
7. Convert into ProRes 422 (not HQ) in Compressor
8. Import into Final Cut Pro X for turning it into a movie and for image stabilization if needed (does not always help)
9. Export as ProRes 422 and not higher since the video is already way too large for uploading
10. My next process will be to bring it back into Compressor to turn it into a vimeo uploadable format like H.264 and then upload

Ill upload my result soon and try to link it to this post as an update if i figure out how.  :)  I just joined!

Thanks for taking the time to read this!

It all depends on where or what you're shooting at or at least aiming for a certain 'mood' such as Interior. Exterior. Daylight. Nighttime. Warm. Cool. Etc...

There's basically no right or wrong in this. Kind of like art, if you may say?

It's just a preference. Do you know how to adjust them within ML menus? It's under 'Expo' on top of the list... Fairly easy to use.

Hi, has anyone noticed higher power consumption with the latest builds? I'm on "magiclantern-Nightly.2015Oct01.5D3113.zip" atm, did a clean install (formated card and just followed the standard procedure). I'm shooting video mostly. Either my batteries are dying (got a few original and chineese copies), or there's another reason I can't seem to figure.

P.S.
I don't have any of the modules loaded. I use ML mainly for the video aids (hystogram), Liveview image adjustments (I use some +contrast, as I shoot a flat profile) and the slightly sharper image which helps with focusing.

@RTI

I have tested a lot - I use everyday ML RAW - and I didn't notice any difference about consumption.
A good idea it's to load and older build, same setting and check if your batteries work with the same time, same test.

ok, So I was able to finally emotionally accept this final uploaded compression from the original far better IQ version onto Vimeo.

After trying to compress before uploading several times in H.264 on several Bit Rates online. I found compressing it 50% and leaving it in Prores to get better results post vimeo compression to be the best and final option. please advise if you have a better method since this took over a day on my slow internet connection to upload.  blow is the link, I tried to embed it hope it worked.

Try following those settings below to get continuous recording for 30fps although it's not exactly 1080p but close and it's RAW which can then be stretched in post to make it full HD if desired.

Sounds like you didn't set the CF card into exFAT via Disk Utility on your Mac -- you'll need to do that first before putting it into ur 5D3 and report back when you can.

Hi DEJ,

I reformatted the card on exFAT. But there is a strange thing, I cant see the res 1856X1044 on RAW MLV but I can see it on Raw Video. Before 1920 it shows 1600 and no 1856 in between.

Also as I tried to decrease the resolution the Error 70 message appeared alternatively with under minute recordings.

Between our last message- I shifted to 1.1.3 to see if it works but to no fruition.

Do you think 1.1.3 will be better for my problem? I m using DSLR Controller software to monitor my shoot.

I used this video to downgrade but Nexus 7 screen froze as I pressed rec button on camera.

Once again thanks a bunch.

When i try your solution, i get an issue :

Record is good at 30fps, ML dont show me drops frame, but when i import my DNG in resolve/premiere i see drop frame in my DNG sequence.
Even if i enable card warm up or not or if i extract my MLV with raw2cdng v1.6.5 or MLV mystic

Ah, ha... I'm afraid that may be the issue on your end ... I would set the Canon settings to 30p (ALL-I) and then go into ML settings to do the rest ... Try that and report back as I'll take a look at your DNG in the meantime.

Re: Which version ML ... I always use the latest nightlies as suggested. Thanks!

Where exactly is the problem within your DNG files as I am looking at them ... I don't see any corruptions/dropped frames in between?

Well i'm back.

After a lot of tests, my problem is :

When i enable card spanning for record with 30fps or more (no problems with 24fps), even if i enable 30/50/60fps in the Canon's menu, i get droped frames, but i dont have problem for record, it's only when i check the movie with the MLV Player, or on raw2cdng and of course if i extract my DNG, Resolve show multiple sequences because i get droped frames.

I need to disable card spanning for using 30fps or more.. I dont understand why. I disabled CF Only Buffer too, but no results.

Then i can't really use Card spanning, My cards are : CF Lexar 1066x 16 gb + SD Lexar Extreme 45 mb/s 16 gb.
I tried to install ML on the CF or the SD, it's the same.
And of course both cards are formated in ExFat

Is it an internal problem in my 5D mark III ? I did a big reset of my configurations, upgrade and downgrade the firmware too, it's the same.

ps: sorry if my english isn't clear sometime, i try my best !

Well i just understand my mistake,

I had not understood the need to assemble the scattered files in both cards to extract DNG.

I thought it was automatically in the preferred card (CF card).

Sorry guys for the late reply.

I did work it out, I can record at 1600X900 and can monitor on Nexus.

Now the problem is when I stretch it to 4k in AE it kind of gets pixellated.

I wonder why it wouldnt work in Nexus 7 when its native resolution is 1920X1200.

Makes no sense to me, or is it about DSLR Controller?

Am I missing something somewhere?

RTI

I am on 1.2.3

Everything's fine. Camera record ML when I am not Nexus 7. And even when I set the resolution below 1920X1080

The trouble is it doesn't monitor/record when I set it on 1920X1080

Like I said 1600X900 it records while monitoring but not on 1920X1080.

Nexus resolution is 1920X1080 and I know DSLR controller also supports 1920X1080.

I checked all the settings. Also my settings wont show option of 1856X1044.

Please advise.

So I have downgraded to the latest 1.1.3

DEJ should I switch to 30 FPS coz right now I use 24 FPS.

I still cannot monitor and record on Nexus 7.

Lately I have started noticing some pink vignetting. May be when I super close up.

Am I right? is there a fix or catch? or is it my illusion or something wrong with the setting?

Please advise.

Hi RTI

Followed your tip on the latest 1.1.3 (April 1st) update. Now it goes to record almost 25-30 seconds until the clip recording goes red and stops.

Any further advice?

Hi Guys
Maybe this has been answered before but with there not being a Canon 5D iii actual board on here (Do we really have to ask all questions relating to Magic Lantern & 5D iii on one single thread?) I don't know where to start to look to find an answer.

Ive turned on the continues video recording function but its operating really strangely.

Rather than fill a 4GB file size limit it records the following durations:

23 mins then 7 mins
20 mins then 10 mins
17 mins etc etc

So in the end two file sizes next to each other seem to record to 30 mins, split over 2 videos.

My problem with this is that it seems totally random how long a video will record for before it stops and restarts.
So I cant definitely know I cab record for a certain length without it stopping and restarting.

Anyone else got this issue and any help please?

Thansk in advance.

Hi just wondering if anyone can confirm the latest stable version of ML for 1.1.3. they are using... I'm late to the game and trying to get my 5D3 running ML. I downloaded the 2016Apr22 nightly build and have issues with the camera shutting off after exactly 26 seconds on boot. The battery icon would blink until I turned the camera off. If I turned it on again it would boot fine then shut off after 26 seconds. The only thing that would seem to resolve the issue was pulling the battery. The camera would function properly without a hitch (capture pics and video) then randomly when I try to use the camera again and it would shut off without warning and would fall into the 26 second shutoff trap until I pulled the battery. I tried  to use the 2016Feb23 nightly with the same results. So I'm just trying to find out which versions have people had luck without this particular issue.

Thanks in advance

I'm not aware of anyone else having this issue.

Can you record a video of it? Does it also happen with default ML settings? Do you use a Canon battery, or a third party one? Is the battery charged?
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.1.3
Post by: bazidl on April 26, 2016, 06:18:15 PM
Stock battery battery is charged.

I did figure out what the issue is related to. It seems that when the camera auto shuts off on its own via the auto power off setting (mine was set to 1 minute) it mucks up something and if I don't pull the battery it will auto shutdown in 26 seconds everytime I power on. I've since changed my auto shutdown to never.

I have attached a video of the issue for your review. You will notice that it starts with the camera in the ON position this is because I let it auto power off.



Thanks for all your work on this!

That's not normal. With auto power off enabled, the camera should turn off normally after 1 minute.

Do you have the issue with plain Canon firmware? (I assume not)

Do you have the issue if you hold SET at startup to disable ML?

Do you have the issue if you reset all ML settings to defaults?

It's very easy to get 359 degrees at 25 and 30 fps (as estimated from ADTG timers). At 24 fps, with the same method, it only goes to 316 degrees.

I have Magic Lantern on my 5Dm3 1.1.3 and recently I have seen some AMAZING improvements with the "pink frame" issues, as in I'm not seeing them anymore  (woohoo! THANK YOU ALL INVOLVED)

...but now, I am experiencing something that I wasn't experiencing before which is skipped frames which causes the recording to stop(I know I can change it to not stop

I have 3 Lexar 1066x UDMA7 cards all "fast enough" for magic lantern but for 24fps 1080 I'm getting skipped frames...not cool.

so here's my question, What should the "sd card" write speed be for the ML firmware to be on? currently the One I have is like 45mb write. Is this not "FAST" enough?

Hi!

I made some benchmarks with two CF cards: Sandisk 128GB 160 read and 64GB KomputerBay 1000x. Is these numbers okay or are they low? I was mostly thinking of Sandisk, would expect them to write faster...?

Sandisk (http://imgbox.com/EgFxtK6X)

Sandisk without Global Draw (http://imgbox.com/qVONeJ9H)

KomputerBay (http://imgbox.com/TB26cHga)

KomputerBay without Global Draw (http://imgbox.com/LGXZ8XM7)

Trying to determine what holds the camera back sometimes when I get lost frames while recording.
Thanks for any idea!

That numbers appears to be ok.
Try in a real world with 1920x1080 MLV RAW.

Remember Hacked On in ML menu. And not use processor intensive task like focus, histograms, etc.

In my case, in real world, Komputerbay 1066x was better over Lexar 1066x. No drop frames.

Does anyone know if different firmware for 5D3 provides different write speeds? I use 1.1.3 but my local camera shop said that newer firmware always provide best write speeds. So what do you think? Trying to get a confit that stable records 130 mb/s (spanning seams to be the only deal to make it work). But 1 mb here or there is not the question but it I can gain 10-20 mb/s that's very welcomed.

Best,

I just only change from M to Auto Mode.
Y applied auto focus with half botton with the Canon 50 MM F1.4. And the image in the LCD stuck with the photo.

Turn off, the camera brick with power on, photo frezzed in the LCD, and message Err 70 on the small viewfinder, near buttons.

Reset battery, and again and again.

I change to other modes and no problem photo and video. Everything fine.

I never use this mode. It's not a problem for me.

I will try to format card, get the build again. Change to other Canon Lens. And test.

TESTED:

Formated Card, add the build again. Battery out for more than 10 secondos, works and no problem so far in Auto-Mode, photo and video.
Appear that this is the best way to go in all the possible problems.

Have you exFat formatted your CF card and enabled exFat in the ML menu?


I am using a 64GB SanDisk Extreme 90MB/s SD Card SDXC Class 10 U3
Which is more than capable of capturing 4K, let alone 1080p which I am doing here.
It is formatted ExFat

Where is “Enable exFat” in Magic Lantern menu?

May I ask which mode you are using?

H.264, All-I? H.264, IPB?

I am using
1920 25 ALL-I


Or are you running MLV_REC.mo or RAW_REC.mo?
I am not recording in RAW. I’m not sure what
MLV_REC.mo
is?


And let us know how fast the card actually is. Debug tab -> Benchmarks -> Card R/W benchmark (5 min)

The answer is pretty simple... You're not recording on the right card :D 20MB/s definitely sounds like an SD card speed.

You have to modify the default card to record to in your 5D menu (I don't have it right in front of me so I can't tell you exactly).

I've had the same issue this saturday and couldn't figure it out until I saww this menu :D

I have a 5D3 (1.1.3) used as camera A and 600d as camera B during interview-shots.
I have a lot of problem with my 600d. It often stops directly after recording mentioning something like error 1 on the LCD screen if I remember correctly, making it impossible to rely on for interviw shots. I still haven't figured out why it occurs while sometimes it works perfectly.  :-\

Which are the two or three camera model (with magic lantern) that are the most stable (having least bugs as possible) and closest in quality (to 5D3's full HD in 24fps) so that I could make it match my 5d3 footage?

Hello,

Sometime when recording, the first shot come with this message screen :

Code: [Select]
FAILED 'WBAL'. queued: 7 failed: 1 (requeued)
What does that mean ? This not affect my footage. I'm just curious to know more about this message.

For info i use the magiclantern-crop3x.2017Jan13.5D3113 build.

EDIT :

That seem to come when i change the white balance just after starting the camera and record the first shot. I guess easily 'WBAL' = White balance..

=> Tried with the last unified version, i don't see this message.

Here (https://bitbucket.org/JohanVrn/ml/downloads/WBAL.mov) a video who show how the error comes.

I do not know if my tests will serve you for anything but it's done.

I think since ML is about video. There should be video forums or at least demo videos regarding the changes in the latest upgrades.

It is very hard to convince other forum contributors to answer your queries.

They are randomly answered and at times ignored totally.

I have installed the latest nightly for 1.1.3 5D3 and can't find RAW file after recording in the folder.

Is there are recent a development. I don't know what to do next or how to extract video from MLV only file.

I don't know how to read through sometimes 85 pages.

I have installed the March 20th Nightly build. And I can see the MLV file but cannot see the RAW.

What could be the case. I went to Post Processing but there is lot of content don't know where to start.

MLV *is* RAW + metadata.
Start with sticky threads in the postprocessing forum.

Hi,

Always thank you for ML team!

1.
Firmware 1.1.3 is still slightly faster than 1.2.3 when recording RAW/MLV ?

2.
Which is correct choice RAW or MLV for recording on 1.1.3?

I am considering about downgrading firmware.

Please tell me if anyone knows.

Hello,
I wonder if I am in the right section for this "I can't downgrade" question.

In my 5dmk3 I have 1.3.3 factory installed.
When following procedure to downgrade using EOS utility (1,2 or 3) I manage to go up the step at which on your mac, it tells you to "push SET on the camera to begin".
Then I briefly see the "firmware update program" window at the back of the canon.
That is briefly because then it goes black, never light again. Instead the red led of the canon battery lights up for 5 seconds, then goes out, then lights up again like that, on and on and on.

That is when I wait and I wait.... The EOS Utility has crashed or spit his waiting wheel at my face. I ask the scary question...
How do I simply shut that down ?

So I turn the camera off at some point, remove the battery to be able to put it on again.
I breathe out when I see that nothing has been damaged but my camera is still on 1.3.3

If anyone has experienced that, I'll be happy to hear about how he or she managed to downgrade that bloody firmware.
Thanks
Alex

Reset cam to factory defaults and don't forget C.Fn settings. Do so to avoid - unlikely but possilble - messing up your cam.
Format a card using cardreader (small one < 32 GByte recommended). Format again in cam.
Put cam in photo mode M. Liveview off.

Now try to install *Canon* firmware 1.1.3 using EOS Utility.
Report back.

I have done exactly the steps as you described them.
I also did it that way before posting. This time I even changed the SD card in case.
I get the same results, exactly as I described it in my first email. The cam screen goes black and the led slowly blink ad vitam eternam.

Please help !!!!

Edit : may my *Canon* Firmware 1.1.3 corrupted somehow ?

Hi there,
I have been trying all the feature until I start working with audio. As said in the documentation only the speaker volume and the beep test tone works with ML on this camera.
If have a H4n or a Juicylink, what else other that manually set the canon audio gain to 1 can I do to improve sound ? The volume is recorded only on channel 1 (left) also I send a 2 channel into the canon audio in.
I could not find anything else on the subject, can someone redirect me to the correct documentation for that camera/firmware ?
Thanks a lot.
Alex

Post by: alexidoia on June 08, 2017, 12:42:28 PM
I am actually recording with the H4n, I was thinking that I might take the lineout out of it to feed the canon, but I am not sure the necessity of it. I also have a juicy link DT 454 I am just evaluating the options, but there is no much to do with magic lantern and audio now. I also saw that with the smtpe module i could trigger the zoom with the canon.

Hi Tim,

If you want to downgrade from 1.3.4 to 1.2.3 why are you posting on the 1.1.3 topic?

I have a pull request (with issues) for the 1.3.4. The forum topic for that is here:

http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=18966.0

It seems that your problem is that you haven't been able to find a download for the 1.2.3 firmware update for Mac. You don't need it, simply unzip the Windows version. The ".FIR" file is the same.

Canon made it so you can't do an in camera downgrade from the 1.3.* firmware versions to the 1.2.* or 1.1.* versions. However, you can still do it with EOS Utility:

http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=18941.0

By the way, I've posted a "5D3 Canon Firmware for Testers.zip" on my bitbucket download page (https://bitbucket.org/daniel_fort/magic-lantern/downloads/).

Are you seeking to bracket just macro shots or landscape shots?

The ML focus bracketing covers macro, my focus bar and other scripts have been written cover landscape focus stacking needs.

Two separate and radically different use cases.

Does anyone know of any way at all (apart from sending it to Canon) to downgrade to 1.2.3?

ATM the only way to do it is via Canon Support. PCB replacement (and their pricing) sounds like major BS, though. https://www.reddit.com/r/MagicLantern/comments/evuaes/canon_eos_5d_mark_iii_136_downgrade_to_113_by_cps/

Thanks for the reply guys.  I don't know QEMU or dev mode is!  Sounds complex.  I have just started my photography course and it would be so handy to have access to different video settings, I find it really annoying that Canon prevent the downgrade.  Is this what people mean when they say Canon "cripple" their products.

The answer I got was from the Auckland branch of canon, I contacted the guy in Timaru (south island, nz) so fingers crossed he can do something...

Sorry, too risky".

I can see it from his point of view of, him being a repairman and not wanting to take that risk.  But man what a bummer!  :(

Hello,

I'm new to this forum and have never used magic lantern, so please be kind and understanding in your responses to me.

I have a 5D Mark III, and would love to be able to use it as a "A" camera for livestreaming.  All I need it to do is stay on in video mode without automatically turning off after 30 mins.  I don't even need it to record.  I just need it to stay on.

Yes, I have auto shutoff disabled.  yes, I have tried screen mirroring both on/off. 

It seems to be a built in feature for the mark III to shut itself off. 

I don't want to spend $150 on a power supply and still have the camera shut itself off.

Can Magic Lantern override the auto shutoff feature and keep the camera on in video mode?

No. Write rate for first one is just twice as fast than second. See https://www.cameramemoryspeed.com/reviews/cf-cards/
>145 MByte/s vs. <70 MByte/s in write mode.

By the way, I just can't understand if 5D Mk III supports lossless 10, 12 and 14 bit raw?

Do you own this camera? Do you own this card? If so, try it.
I use a really slow sd card for ml firmware in my sd card, recording on cf. Works.

I'm sorry, the camera and the lens are on the way to me (I'll have to get 1066x Extreme Pro, too), but I just can't wait. It would be my first FF camera, to be used in a documentary project with indoors shooting mostly.

UPD. OK, now I have got the camera and lens (will get the 1066x CF in a week). Still I don't know which firmware to choose - 1.1.3 or 1.2.3. Could anyone, please, tell me which one is more stable?

Both versions are stable, but...

(...) Firmware 1.2.3 is required if need any of those features from Canon:

    clean HDMI out
    dual monitor support (internal+external)
    AF at f/8 with teleconverters

If you don't need anything from the above list, please consider downgrading to 1.1.3. (...)

Card spanning :
ML menu, Movie, press q on Raw video and enable card spanning. And have fun.

Thank you so much! It works. 5.5K anamorphic mode gives the best picture I've ever seen.

I've decided to use Sandisk Extreme Pro 64 GB 170 SD card previously used in 100D. Cannot use 100D after 5D3.

Got the thing about *.m00 files. I have to merge *.mlv and the corresponding *.m00 file manually.

Post by: IDA_ML on July 16, 2020, 10:44:37 AM
The latest versions of the experimental build for the 5D3 allows full sensor readout anamorphic 5k recording with a stunning video quality which is aliasing free and barely distinguishable from the 1:1 full sensor recording.  Right now this 5k anamorphic mode is limited to 15 fps and you get continuous recording at 12-bit lossless with Card spanning active (no SD overclocking).  Operation is very stable, no corrupt frames and post processing really goes smoothly and fast, especially with MLVFS and Resolve.

I was wondering if it might be possible to increase the frame rate to 16 fps in the above mode as this was done very successfully on the EOS-M, (Thank you so much for that, Danne!).  The reason why I am asking for this is the fact that DaVinci Resolve can natively process 16 fps with the "Don't change" fps option and footage really looks gorgeous in that mode - very smooth and cinematic, with a beautiful dreamy motion blur.  Interpolation to 24 fps, if required, also produces gorgeous footage with very little jello effect if any.  I realize that increasing fps by 1 frame may reduce recording times but if we can record long enough takes (10 sec. or so) at 16 fps, this will be a more than welcome improvement.

I've got Sandisk Extreme Pro 120 GB 160 MB/s CF. Can shoot anamorphic 5K 25 fps continuously using card spanning. Fantastic. Never thought before that it can be possible. Just think: 5K @ 25 fps CONTINUOUSLY.

Benchmark shows 91 write for CF and 65 write for SD (Sandisk Extreme Pro 64 GB 170 MB/s). So total throughput would be approx. 156 MB/s? Is there any higher resolution mode? Can full frame 5.5K mode work at 24 fps?

What settings are you use? Bit depth, fps, are you testing without global draw?
Is 5.4K anamorphic working (23.976fps) without card spanning? - > for me up to 14 bit continues.
Maybe fake CF card? Try UHD mode at 10 bit, 3840x1536, 23,976fps, with card spanning and global draw to off - > writespeed is up to 131mb/s possible with both cards, you can see the speed while recording.

Bit depth is 14 bit lossless, fps is 23.976 (tried 24.995, got even more compression errors), card spanning and sd_uhs are on. Global Draw was set to "Liveview". Set it to "On, all modes" - and no compression errors at 23.976 fps, but there are compression errors "-3" at 25 fps. This mode wasn't supposed to work with 25 fps?

No, the CF card is not fake.
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.1.3
Post by: Danne on July 22, 2020, 01:09:37 PM
No ratio is probably 24fps only with anamorphic. I didn't plan on using it at all.
Set bitdepth to 10 as well.
If you want more help it's always better if posting screen recordings. So many variables often missed with vague or almost no descriptions.
Title: Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.1.3

Still getting compression errors with fps=23.976, Global Draw = "On, all modes", card spanning and sd_uhs are on, bit depth 14 lossless. Maybe I should switch GD off and set bit depth to 10 bit.

What's most interesting, I'm getting errors under certain conditions, depending on what I'm shooting. Is that so because of 14 bit lossless?

How to make screens without taking pictures by iPhone etc?

Last but not least: I'll be using Helios 44-M4 F2 58mm soon, as I'll get chipped M42-Canon adapter.

Just tested card spanning on, 14bit 1920x2340 24fps, sd_uhs patch on. No compression errors, continuous. Recorded 10 files in a row, pushing iso and so on. Seems solid over here.
What sd card are you using? Are you sure card spanning is enabled?
Why are setting global draw to all modes? Just leave it to what is upon installing firmware. At least for this test.

Hello! I am new in ml world. First of all, thanks for great job to creators (my best regards to Danne) of this amazing stuff. I am using ml on my 5dm3. I have a question. For projects like short movie's and especially full length movies its really useful to have a balance between quality, file size and comfortable duration of recording. So I think it (balance) can be in something around 2.8k RAW (Half sensor height and width). So, Is it possible to capture 2.8k (for example 2*2 binning, or something like that, I am not sure about the names) from FULL sensor? Probably something like this is already exists in ml world? I think its gonna be very useful feature for film makers. Thanks a lot.
upd. Actually I use 1.2.3. firmware, so probably it better to put my question in correct topic.

I'm imaging I'd go to make an interview, fly thousands of miles by plane both ways, ask a man everything I want to know about him, and finally, when I'll get home, it'd appear that there's no sound in most of clips. That's it, the life is over.
If it's a matter of life and death, you'd better not rely on reverse-engineering hacks but invest in professional equipment.

I think it's better to use an external recorder like Zoom H5.

That is, I have to switch the patching off, the SD will be slow, and I'll also have to turn card spanning off?

5D3 is already a professional camera. But IMHO it's h.264 video is of much lower quality than lossless 14 bit.

I'm using this card :

SanDisk Extreme PRO
170 MB/s
SDXC V30
128 GB

I'm using "Danne's" last build in 1920x1080 14 bits loss less 25 fps  No card spanning or sd patch switched on. The recording is continuous.

It's OK, the common h.264 movie ALL-I mode works good, the bitrate depends on the contents of the image.

But, I'm still going to shoot an interview in RAW.

Right now I'm using "3K 1:1" mode at 2560x1440 @ 25 fps, 1/100 sec, ISO 160 (ISO 100 in sunny day), 14 bit lossless, card spanning, sharpen=80. I'm getting an ultra-sharp image with Canon 24-105 L IS USM lens. I've shot the video with the ship departing from the pier, 3 mins, later coded to ProRes 422 HQ. Almost 7 GB. If anybody wants I'll give a link to this video.

sharpen=80

Sharpening is not applying to RAW footage.

So what is it for?

H.264, JPEG, embedded previews and as a software preset for applications able to handle exif maker notes (DPP, for example).

I'm working in MLV App, so I'm talking about sharpening in this program. Why is it wrong to sharp raw footage when exporting to ProRes? It makes video look better, this is my workflow.

OK, here's the link to H.264 compressed 1080P version of 2.5K footage: https://disk.yandex.ru/i/fz8obGH9gBAYCg It's to your judgment.

If it's at the step of mlv app I guess it's ok. Nonetheless applying too much sharpening may introduce more aliasing on sharp details such as thin lines. But it's your personal taste that matters.

Of course it's all about MLV App.

Sharpening at the raw step makes video truly sharper, this kind of sharpening cannot be got later, IMHO.

Please tell me what is right and what is wrong in this video, apart from the operator work.
