Title: Canon 6D / Firmware 1.1.3
Post by: coutts on December 16, 2012, 06:19:02 AM
Current state: blindly maintained (the developers who maintain it don't have a 6D, and those who do are refusing to maintain it or are too busy with real life). Anybody with coding skills and lots of free time (and of course a 6d) is welcome to maintain this port.

Nightly builds: http://builds.magiclantern.fm/

Installation:
1) Format the card from the camera.
2) Make sure you are running Canon firmware 1.1.3 (http://pel.hu/down/eos6d-v113-win.zip).
3) Copy ML files on the card and run Firmware Update.

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

FOR DEVELOPERS ONLY
Want to help with the porting proces? Use this special updater (http://bit.ly/ZgvGUf) file to dump the firmware, set your bootflag, and dump the debug log. This is NOT an alpha release of Magic Lantern, it only sets the bootflag (that's it). I removed the check for autoexec.bin and made it so it doesn't make your card bootable. This is only useful for dumping the firmware and setting your bootflag to get started developing.


15-Dec-2012:
- firmware dumped, working on mapping functions
- bootflag enabled, able to boot autoexec.bin files now
- Canon firmware booted by ML - so first step to "hello world"

16-Dec-2012:
- Hello World!

18-Dec-2012:
- released custom FIR updater FOR DEVELOPERS ONLY that sets the bootflag, dumps the rom, and dumps the debug log.


January 2013 - February 2014:
- Tragic Lantern took over the 6D development and refused to contribute anything back to the main tree, leaving the 6D port unmaintained.

February 15, 2014:
- Marsu42 confirmed the unmaintained port is still working, and submitted a pull request to get it back into the nightly builds. We, the Magic Lantern developers, decided to do a blind backporting of Tragic Lantern code (without a 6D in our hands) and brought the port up to date.

March 20, 2014:
- Simplified installation process.
- Tragic Lantern usage and discussion is no longer accepted on this forum (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11080).

=> current state: blindly maintained, we need your help to get it back on track.

working to make ML work enough to see the menu draw. right now it's kind of buggy, red led on every shutdown (so shutdown is hanging somewhere, boo). it's pretty messy right now..

fixed!! fixing the DISPLAY_STATEOBJ const fixed the ML menu and that weird shutdown hang bug. Looking good now! I can navigate the (empty) ML menu now :)

new commits published to the bitbucket repo too with my changes.

This is awesome news! :D I prefer the 6D over the 5D mk3 because of better noise performance so I can't wait to get my hands on one of them with ML hopefully ready for it that time! :)

Seems to have all the digital zoom functions in the FW. Audio is different again. Slice QPD is there. Looks like gop changing is too. I found UHS mode and stock all I produces 72mbps video. Potential with wifi and GPS but lots of things are limited by canon somewhat arbitrarily. Not sure on movie af but might be there too (PROP_MOVIE_SERVO_AF).

If you guys can make this camera use a smartphone or tablet to monitor video recording I'll be getting it for sure!

Keep up the good work!  :)

Ah I see what you mean now. I'm not sure why video is disabled while wifi is on, it probably has to do with free memory (wifi task probably takes up a lot of CPU too).

Developers: check the main post for instructions of how to download a dev kit for the 6D to dump the rom/debug log, and set the bootflag.

Post by: coutts on December 19, 2012, 12:17:55 AM
good news! tomorrow I should see LV overlays drawing on the 6d :)

Also, alex and I have figured out the HD buffer dimensions, and it looks very very promising! Not much resizing in movie mode (~5%):

HD buffer resolution:
    - LV mode: 1816x1210 pixels!!
    - movie mode (while recording too): 1808x1206 pixels

So the HD buffer is roughly 1/3rd the resolution of the sensor (20.2mp)

Gday.

This is probably not a good place to post this, but .. if you guys could magically bring back the FEC change feature into the ISO top button and the AWB also then that would be fantastic!

I dislike how canon got rid of them two :'(
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: 1% on December 19, 2012, 01:53:16 AM
So buffer while recording is bigger than crop mode. I wonder what dzoom will do.

*Bootflag is set now, Thanks!

just got ML overlays to draw in live view :D although it's buggy for now. it seems like closing the ML menu in lv/movie mode breaks everything (canon and ML stuff) and I need to exit/reenter LV to make things work again.

here's some pictures I took on the M (trying to get focus peaking pictures):

Pushed some more changes. live view overlays (Magic zoom, focus peaking, zebras, etc.) seem to be working now. Now ML info display in live view / movie mode doesn't draw on top of canon. Luckily the 6D turns out is like the 5d3, so it didn't need extra work like the EOS M did. Trap focus seems to work now too, both in LV and normal shooting mode. I'm beginning to turn features on now so maybe Alpha 1 soon? :D

So far:

FPS override overcrank produces corrupted live view but it gets 32fps in 24p. MZ still flickering. Most things do work, MLU handheld does not will have to spy this one.

* The event is right, just MLU has to be enabled from canon menu before handheld MLU will work.
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: coutts on December 22, 2012, 07:09:37 PM
MZ was working the other night, it's acting up now. We have to tweak what event fires a sync msg, right now we're using DISPLAY_STATE but maybe we should look into spying on EVF_STATE. right now the event seems to fire once a frame approx, but the timing is off so MZ updates wrong (and flickers).

Alex says it's pure guesswork so we just need to play with it. Same for FPS override for the timer generator consts, we need to tweak those until we're getting accurate FPS numbers displayed by ML.

Both 600D and 6D need sync. I did this method for 600D and it worked for a bit until a bug got fixed and it was back to flicker. Full screen is broken too, looks like the address/pitch is just a little bit off. I get 1/2 of the image squished at the top.

Probably need to add MLU toggle in the MLU lockup so it turns it on when handheld is enabled and working and turn it off after taking a pic so you don't get MLU on all pics or none.

MLU now working. - https://bitbucket.org/OtherOnePercent/tragic-lantern-6d/commits/d20e014b33cd9117cd3eaf56ff6f904ed16dda48

... Full screen is broken too, looks like the address/pitch is just a little bit off. I get 1/2 of the image squished at the top.

maybe we need to fix this? from consts.h:

Quote
#define YUV422_HD_BUFFER_DMA_ADDR (shamem_read(REG_EDMAC_WRITE_HD_ADDR) + vram_hd.pitch) // first line from DMA is dummy

maybe we should remove the "+ vram_hd.pitch" part and it will work? I think i tried both but didn't' see any difference in the tests I did so I left it like this.

Any chance that there will be a port of Magic Lantern for the 6D?  All I am hoping for is the same functionality as in ML 2.3.  Tragic Lantern is very buggy for me so it would be great to have a semi stable build with basic features.

Tragic Lantern is very buggy for me so it would be great to have a semi stable build with basic features.

TL is buggy because 1% is said to do some dodgy things with the code, but simply backporting might not help in all cases because the underlying problem is that the 6d platform code simply isn't ready/stable enough. Still, if you want to contribute by doing some TL backports it'd be great, just expect to have to do more than some copy/paste.

I've spent another day pushing some ml patches arpund & adding some user requests to the auto_iso module - as much as I'd like to put more work and time into improving ML usability (auto_iso, hotkeys, focus stacking) I'm not able to put any work into the core.

Now, since the 6D is only blindly maintained (we don't have a 6D, and the devs who have one are either refusing to maintain it or are too busy in real life), I'd like you to try every single function from the menu and report whether it works or not.

I'm also looking for a stub test log (Debug -> Burn-in tests -> Stubs API tests).

You can take a look at how things went with the early 650D port: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=3697.msg36064#msg36064

Also, when reporting issues, make sure you provide all the necessary info so that a non-6D owner is able to understand it (screenshots, videos and exact steps necessary to reproduce the problem are very helpful). Don't forget to read http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html .

With your help, I hope the 6D ML can get back on track and get close to the level of support from 5D Mark II/III, for example.

I prefer the 6D over the 5D mk3 because of better noise performance
And Much Lower Price.

BTW: In late 2013, there were deals on the 6d at about $1400, if you checked on CanonRumors . Prices seemed to have gone up since then.

I posted the following over on the 6D - Install guide and Raw Shooting thread, just thought I would post it here to, with the added question, will the special updater file to dump the firmware, dump a copy of v1.1.4 of the firmware that I have on my new camera so that I can re-install that version if I start playing with ML on v1.1.3?

Also, although my time is rather limited at the moment, I would be happy to help out with development of ML for the 6D.

Anyway, here was my post on the other thread just for background (rather than re-typing).

Over the week end I got my new Canon 6D, lovely camera, and a nice upgrade from my 60D with it's Full Frame sensor.

Now I love Magic Lantern on my 60D, I use it mainly for the Intervalometer, and advanced bulb timer etc for time lapse photography.

I was hoping to put ML onto my 6D, and looking at the instructions you need to downgrade the firmware to v1.1.2 first, which I have no problem with, except that my Camera has come with v1.1.4 of the 6D firmware.  From my searching it appears that v1.1.4 has yet to be released by Canon, I have been unable to located that version of the firmware anywhere to download, so I am a little reluctant to downgrade to v1.1.2, since I will then not be able to go back to v1.1.4 until it is released officially.

So does anyone know how to backup the existing firmware, and also if ML will work with version 1.1.4?

Hi

I am new to ML and mostly do wildlife and rare wedding photography with my 7D. I am deciding between Mark III and 6D, but most probably will go for 6D due to price and similar IQ compare to Mark iii.

I will be here very often to report bugs and help the devs to further improve the 6D.

Before getting a 6D just wanted to confirm if it supports 3x crop zoom mode and if its only for video or stills. Also 6D does HDR only in jpeg, so was wondering if HDR raw is possible with ML.


Thanks

Be very conscious of the disadvantages of the 6d (af precison, speed, light sensitivity of the outer points) - if you want it for *tracking* wildlife just save more money for a 5d3, the 6d is horrible at it.

Also 6D does HDR only in jpeg, so was wondering if HDR raw is possible with ML.

No & won't happen.

I assume you mean "Dual ISO, HDR bracketing" ?

I understand it cant be done in the camera, and will require me to do things manually on a computer with all those great tools available on this forum.

As long as 6D supports HDR bracketing, i wont need the in-camera HDR

This is really ot (create an own thread) but I cannot stress this enough - the 6d has great sensor iq and saves you a lot of $$$ vs. 5d3, but the 6d only does single center-point tracking which inherently loses focus now and again & produces a lot less keepers. Multi-point tracking is a catastrophe and you can only select all at once, no af pt expansion, no nothing. If you're an amateur and can live with that, fine, but for wildlife tracking the 6d is the absolutely worst choice among the whole Canon crop or ff linup (well, with the 5d2). Or buy a Nikon d610 :-)

So yes the Mark iii works out more better overall. Thanks

About the backporting to ML.

I'm doing a lot of tests on raw_rec and mlv_rec on 6D ML version.
I've found two issues.
1)  edmac-memcpy.c dmaFlags should be  0x20001000, as we have in TL. The other 0x40001000 hangs the cam (battery remove and so on) and get error EDMAC timeout in raw_rec. mlv_rec doesn't hangs but the recordings no OK. I propose something like that:

void* edmac_copy_rectangle_cbr_start(...
{
    take_semaphore(edmac_memcpy_sem, 0);
   
    /* see wiki, register map, EDMAC what the flags mean. they are for setting up copy block size */
    #if defined(CONFIG_6D)
      uint32_t dmaFlags = 0x20001000;
    #else
      uint32_t dmaFlags = 0x40001000;
    #endif


2) raw_rec.c hackliveview there is no reference to 6D. It's necesary to inform it
uint32_t dialog_refresh_timer_addr = /* in StartDialogRefreshTimer */
            cam_50d ? 0xffa84e00 :
            cam_5d2 ? 0xffaac640 :
            cam_5d3 ? 0xff4acda4 :
            cam_550d ? 0xFF2FE5E4 :           
            cam_600d ? 0xFF37AA18 :
            cam_650d ? 0xFF527E38 :           
            cam_7d  ? 0xFF345788 :
            cam_700d ? 0xFF52B53C :

1) are there specific resolutions that hang, or all of them are troublesome?
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: nandoide on March 12, 2014, 10:17:26 AM
Humm. OK. Several battery removes ??? and I can conclude:

Only when I select a resolution that excedes cam capabilities, for instance 1920 for 1X. Or 3584 for 5X.

At 1X the cam selects 1808 as x_resolution for 1X and 2672 as x_resolution max for 5X.

As I  record sometimes  at different resolutions for 1X and 5X and I found very handy the automatic computation.




   
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: a1ex on March 12, 2014, 10:24:19 AM
It should select 1792.

If I'm not mistaken, the horizontal resolution should be multiple of 16 pixels and multiple of 8 bytes (which should be equivalent to multiple of 32 bytes).

Code: [Select]
# checking whether multiple of 16 pixels and multiple of 8 byte are equivalent to multiple of 32 bytes

In [25]: (arange(65)*14/8)%8 + arange(65)%16
Out[25]:
array([ 0,  2,  5,  8, 11,  5,  8, 11, 14, 16, 11, 14, 17, 19, 14, 17,  4,
        6,  9,  4,  7,  9, 12,  7, 10, 12, 15, 18, 13, 15, 18, 21,  0,  2,
        5,  8, 11,  5,  8, 11, 14, 16, 11, 14, 17, 19, 14, 17,  4,  6,  9,
        4,  7,  9, 12,  7, 10, 12, 15, 18, 13, 15, 18, 21,  0])

Here's a patch to be applied on top of current unified, can you try it?

Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: nandoide on March 12, 2014, 11:40:24 AM
Of course. I applied it manually (I've a a slightly modified version)

OK for %64 only (tested in raw_rec).

The upper patch I think it's obsolete (the resolutions). I don't apply them.

The changes at edmac-memcpy at 5x cause data corruption at all resolutions. But it's OK if we check only dst_width.




Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: a1ex on March 12, 2014, 11:46:15 AM
Correct, it's dst_width that needs to be checked (since src_width is what we get from Canon).

About 1x, both %32 and %64 should select 1792. Doesn't work with %32?
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: nandoide on March 12, 2014, 12:04:20 PM
For 1x works with %32, but for 5x we need %64. I get data corruption: it selects 2656.
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: a1ex on March 12, 2014, 12:24:41 PM
Alright, will try this one on 5D3 (done, 2656 works fine, I'm confused).

Can you add this printf in raw_rec?

Code: [Select]
   +bmp_printf(FONT_SMALL, 50, 50, "dst=%x src=%x sw=%d x=%d y=%d w=%d h=%d ", ptr, fullSizeBuffer, raw_info.pitch, (skip_x+7)/8*14, skip_y/2*2, res_x*14/8, res_y);
    int ans = (int) edmac_copy_rectangle_start(ptr, fullSizeBuffer, raw_info.pitch, (skip_x+7)/8*14, skip_y/2*2, res_x*14/8, res_y);

Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: nandoide on March 12, 2014, 01:18:54 PM
Well, the problem is dst_width is transformed previously by a factor 14/8, and 2656*14/8 = 4648 % 16 != 0

Perhaps this safety check in edmac should be :

if ( ( dst_width*8 ) /14 % 16) return 0


Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: a1ex on March 12, 2014, 01:50:24 PM
This doesn't match my findings from 5D3. The number of pixels should be multiple of 16 because most codecs expect that, and the number of bytes should be multiple of 8 because EDMAC expects that.

So, 2656 % 16=0 and  4648 % 8 = 0.

If EDMAC would require multiples of 16 bytes, the following horizontal resolution would crash:  864, 1504.

On 5D3, they do not crash. What about 6D?
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: nandoide on March 12, 2014, 02:20:59 PM
There are also no more crashes on 6D with %32.

The problem was the check at edmac_copy_rectangle_cbr_start that you suggested in the patch and I modified a bit (changing src_width by dst_width)
  if ( dst_width % 16 ) return 0;   at some resolutions, the check verifies and returns.
 
for instance 2656 because dst_width is 4648 and 4648%16 != 0.

We have to remove this check or choose  this one if ( ( dst_width*8 ) /14 % 16) return 0

Whatever we do, it works.

Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: a1ex on March 12, 2014, 02:41:43 PM
In edmac_copy, my latest patch uses if (dst_width % 8 ) return 0.

If this is correct, I'll commit it for further review.
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: nandoide on March 12, 2014, 03:11:45 PM
I think it's OK.

For instance 1808 and 2672, the resolutions that crashed the 6D (prior changing  %16 to %32 on raw_rec) verify the condition:  dst_width%8 != 0, so the crash is gone and the safety check is fault tolerant enough.

Thanks a lot.

Hi guys,
thanks for your magic, I've been trying ML on my 6D in these days and was wondering if headphone monitoring with RCA - 3.5mm jack adapter actually works on 6D since I'm trying to use it but I can't hear no sound coming from my headphones and moreover several audio features in ML menu seem to be missing on the 6D.
Maybe a headphone amplifier would fix the problem?
Has anybody checked this feature with the latest build?

Thanks for your help

Any volunteer to try the latest installer for 6D? (the same one that I wrote these days for 5D3.123 (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11017)).

This time you will be the first one who runs it, so if you don't mind being the guinea pig, just send me a PM.

So far, the code was confirmed to work on 5D3, 7D and 700D.

Boots solid red light... also has to be named like:

6D00011X.FIR or some variation or the camera won't read it. Do you have the unsigned bin, I can see if it boots.

You can compile it from installer/6D.113 and try the autoexec.

I guess the choice box made by the updater itself not by the camera's firmware. The camera always starts the first .fir file and if it not has a check routine for other .fir files then just runs.

On 5D3, I'm not sure what I did, but I placed ML FIR + Canon FIR, got the choice box, selected ML FIR but it ran Canon FIR instead (and re-flashed 1.2.3).

Maybe placebo, but it seemed to flash pretty fast (I remember it was really slow back then).

New to this forums, to ML and to the 6D (but not to Canon EOS), so please bear with me. Thanks.

My newly bought 6D already came with FW 1.1.4, which I read is pretty new and ML seems to be getting built for 1.1.3 only. So, is that build expected to work with 1.1.4 as well? The changes seem minor. Will there be 1.1.4 builds soon-ish?

GPS powersave workaround (turn off at shutdown, restore at next reboot) is in the nightly builds, test it out!

Pull request (merged): https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-request/449/6d-gps-off-at-shutdown

Credits (chronologically):
* 1%: reverse engineering and initial implementation
* nanomad: initial cleanup
* me: simplified the menu and made the code a little more robust
* Marsu42 and Maqs: confirmed my changes working

For cameras without GPS, this code can be tested by faking PROP_GPS to PROP_WB_MODE_PH (white balance) with CONFIG_GPS_FAKE:
* 0 = auto WB = GPS off
* 1 = sunny = GPS external
* 2 = cloudy = GPS internal

P.S. Maqs is doing some really cool stuff by reverse engineering the GPS functionality (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11209).

Thanks for the latest update for the 6D. Thank you for the ability for the GPS to be off when the camera itself is shut off. I really can't understand why Canon didn't implement this from the start.

Thanks for the 6D update A1ex and the rest of the team. It's been about 5 months since I've updated the build or shot a bunch of RAW so good to see there was some collaboration and tough decisions to get the code on track. Look forward to this fresh install and will let you know if any issues occur. Planning on rocking the 6D for some gimbal footage soon and having RAW is always a plus.

Many thanks for this. Love the new GPS power save.

I've no idea how these things work, but would like to offer a small suggestion to further improve the GPS power save functionality. Is it possible to set the power save to only come into effect when the camera is powered off using the main switch, rather than the camera's auto power off feature? That way it would maintain a gps lock until the camera is physically shut down, at the end of a walk for example.

Hoe that makes sense...

Latest TL build dated 2014-03-19 seems to have a bug, that it shuts off the GPS when camera goes power save and does not restore it when it wakes up. When I loaded the older one (Feb 8th) it works fine.

Hello everybody,
this evening I have been reading ML tutorials, this forum and still have question.
Have I understood right that last archive on
https://bitbucket.org/OtherOnePercent/tragic-lantern-6d/downloads
is stable ML for 6D?
I had downloaded magiclantern-v31337.TRAGIC.2014Mar19.6D113.zip
but I am confused with this archive because of different folder structure and .fir file absence in comparison with ML Stable Release: v2.3
For installation should I just unzip magiclantern-v31337.TRAGIC.2014Mar19.6D113.zip and upload all files to SD card?

Best Regards, Sultansha.

In theory I understand ML can hack any Canon function, but only after proper reverse engineering (which hasn't been done on that). But even then I wouldn't want ML to actively circumvent or counteract Canon's marketing decisions - however I might like them - because that could lead to the end of the ML-Canon truce.

Same here for 1.1.3 and a cheap AC adapter, but it only appears the first time I turn the camera on after connecting the adapter. I suppose the warning could be easy to suppress, however I don't think suppressing warnings is the best idea, as Canon may have not only financial reasons for showing them.  ;)

Hey guys, so newly registered on this site but I own a 6d and am extremely interested in trying out ML on this camera and have been for quite some time now!  I am also available for helping getting this working and stable any way I can.  I'm not exactly a developer by any means but am a quick learner if there is any assistance I can be in maintaining this and helping with builds.

So I guess my first question is, is this build stable enough for an install?  At least for  a testing install if not for production use.  I know there's never a guarantee of not bricking a camera, but just trying to get a feel since as I said, I'm very new to this site.

Hi and thanks for the release! (looks pretty stable to me :)

I installed "Nightly.2014Apr04.6D113". I found there "help files" are not found and the user guide cannot be read in camera. I understand this is because is not a stable release and the manual is not specifically written for 6D, but I guess I could use it sometimes. (I had ML in my old 500D, but looks much clean in 6D!)
So, what I should do is just to copy files in "doc" folder from the stable release download (not for 6D) into the SD card I already installed ML for my 6D? Probably I will just do it and risk myself before I get any answer...

Anyway, thanks again!

Yes, you can copy the doc folder from the stable release, and you'll get help for the features that were also present back then.

This is something we need to do for all cameras (bring the help system back). Maybe discard the BMP format and switch to plain text or some sort of rich text.

Hi all. First message here :)

I had ML on my 550D for some times, and i was extremly happy with it.
Then i moved to a 6D one year ago, totally frustrated of not using ML anymore.

I was patient to wait for an official stable version of ML including 6D, but as you know, for few months, the alpha/nighty ML version allow us to record RAWs, and because of that, i'm not that patient anymore :)

The problem is, it is hard for new (alpha) peoples to find what is the actual installing process of the actual version of ML for the 6D. Probably because with time it changed a lot.

I've seen a video of a guy starting from Firmware 1.1.3 installing 1.1.2 then ML for 1.1.2 then installing back 1.1.3 then making a bootable SD and putting alpha ML for 1.1.3 on it then done.

But actually all i can find is a "nighty" version, but no "alpha" version. And if i watch in the archive, it looks like i don't need to do the 1.1.2 steps.

I'm actually under  1.1.3 firmware and i would like to know if i'm correct in my steps for the actual version :
0- No need to go back to 1.1.2
1- Make my SD card bootable
2- Put Nighty version for 6D on it (because there is no actual "alpha" version avalaible for 6D)
3 - Update the 6D with the ML on the card
4 - Win an Oscar with my RAW movie

Thank you for your time.

I recently noticed that my 6D does HEAVY noise even on ISO 6400! Weeks before, shots even up to 10K ISO were absolutely fine but now I get HORRIBLE images. I am using Dual ISO and same as always settings like 100/800!

Great example
This picture is resized to 1000px/600px
On original resolution it looks far more worse!
https://www.dropbox.com/s/jlmwu1buc29cyoj/IMG_1388.jpg

The picture was taken on ISO 6400!!!!!

And I never reached that bad pictures before. It happened last week the first time...

I get a bad feeling that my 6D is getting corrupted! Weird thing is that I am not alone with this problem. Some other guy posted a single thread about this problem with his 6D!
I can not ignore the fact that maybe Tragic Lantern is able to speed up the obsolescence EXTREMLY of the sensor?



Second problem:

I recently bought a SanDisk Extreme 60 MB/S and still I get really bad recording times with RAW.
I made a list even, is this good enough?

Memory Recordingtime in seconds 24 Frames per Second MLV-REC:
Resolution // Without Memory Hack Recording Time in Seconds // With Memory Hack Recording Time in Seconds
1344 // 56+ // 56++
1472 // 20 // 22
1504 // 11 // 19
1536 // 9 // 16
1600 // 7 // 12
1728 // 4 // 7
1792 // 3 // 6

To be honest, with my far more worse SanDisk Ultra, I got particular same recording speed. Continious was 1153 and now with my far better card, ML still says I can only do continous on 1153! Is this really the limit? How can other people record LONGER on higher resolutions? SanDisk Extreme should be actually enough or didn't I push it's limit with the SD-card? Weird...

Hi,
I have 600D, and happily use ML with it for long time.
Just bought a 6D, with firmware 1.1.4.
I have a very basic knowledge with programming but I'll be happy to give any kind of help. (firmware dumps, testings, etc...)

After reading about the bootflag issue of the 5D MK III, I wanted to ask - Is this issue relevant on the 6D as well? I don't want to do any non-reversible action on my new 6D!
Can I safely uninstall it completely, including restoring the bootflag to default?

I understand that in order to install ML I must downgrade my firmware first to 1.1.3. As far as I red, no major changes happened in 1.1.4, and I downloaded from this thread the 1.1.3 firmware, and still skeptical if you do it. I never did a DOWNGRADE firmware direction. It's tested and being found OK, right? :)

Thanks!
The guy who is afraid for his new 1800$ camera :-P

Mu. The bootflag issue has been solved some time ago.

I don't want to do any non-reversible action on my new 6D!

Sure thing! Put your camera on the shelf. Don't even think about using the shutter release button or the liveview button because those actions are non-reversible. Shutter count will be increased.

Recent builds of Magic Lantern appear to be causing frequent but intermittent err 01 when used with the Tamron 24-70 f2.8 VC. Tried an earlier build and it works fine. Other lenses are OK.

I was asking about the firmware-downgrade action, because I never did it in that direction.
Anyhow, I appreciate your serious, thoughtful answer. You are a "Hero Member" and "Contributor", right?
Is there a question here that can be asked and get informative answer? >:(

Because it seems here on the forums that if you ask a "stupid" question (in your eyes) you are being mocked and/or called a "Troll", but when I ask a more "Serious" question (after I was googling it many times to avoid duplicate topics) I get no answers!   (and then we wonder about forks and Tragic Lantern and why no stable progress has been made since 2012?)
I am not a programmer, and I have no abilities in doing the wonderful things you did, but giving everyone the respect they deserve is something which reflects back upon you.

I will paste here is my "sophisticated" question that didn't get answer: In 600D you have crop video mode that eliminate all moire and aliasing problems. I was trying to find first via Google and here if ML with the RAW VIDEO function could record from the center of the sensor on the 6D as well. There is no documentation yet to be red.
And regarding that, if that is possible, since 6D is incapable of recording Full-HD raw video due to the bandwidth limit, I wanted to find out whether it's possible to use the normal Canon compression - so it would be possible to record Full-HD from the center of the sensor.

That's probably because a lot of easy questions have already been answered and went in a faq in some kind or another, but new questions might be those other people also don't know the answer to.

Yes, You *have* to record in crop mode when recording raw, I don't know if it improves the bad moire on 6d (but it might as long as now sensor downsizing is involved), but you can barely record 720p due to the slow sd card speed (40mb/s max).

From what I have tried&tested with the 600D - It records the currently selected canon video mode and don't do any crop.
For example, if I set on the canon menu 1920x1080 without digital zoom (no crop mode), then the RAW video would take a portion out of THAT - not from the center of the sensor. That is - The camera scan about every 3rd line to get a 1920x1080 output, and the magic lantern can grab 950x540 crop out of THAT 1920x1080 screen. So yes, still the same ugly moire.
If I select the digital zoom (crop mode) on the 600D, the RAW VIDEO portion (950x540) would be taken out of that = No moire.
Am I right? Correct me if I am wrong. I'll be happy if I am wrong! :D

Ah, right, 6d would be about the same, raw_rec and mlv_rec are modules that work the same way on all cameras. For in-depth answers I'll let someone else step in as I'm no video guy, if I would be I wouldn't have bought the 6d :-p

Hello,
just wondering is it possible to make a config file and have tragic-lantern boot up with this config file by default for 6D?

or can you do this?
if you hold e.g set button when camera is booting up  will load config file 1.
if you hold  trash button while camera is booting up will load config file 2

i know that 5D mark3 can do this can 6D TL do this?

Hi folks,

I've been testing a nightly build (magiclantern-Nightly.2014Apr04.6D113) and noticed a bug with the intervelometer function:

When I've used the intervelometer, stopped it, then powered down the camera (say overnight) next time I switch the 6D back on it seems to immediately start snapping again with the intervelometer function running.

I'll update to a more recent nightly in the next couple days and see if the behaviour persists.

You should be able to clear the overlays, but that doesn't really count as clean HDMI out. You are limited to 1620 pixels, which is actually not too far from the raw feed resolution (1808 here, around 1700 on most small cameras).

I have the latest nightly on my new 6D. It works fine in general - thanks to everyone for all of their hard work!

One specific question about RAW video recording... 1792x resolution is the largest I can select, but it says that it requires like 80MB/sec to do 29fps at that resolution, and the max my card (and the 6D in general?) can do is 40MB/sec or so. To get down to 40MB/sec I have to lower the resolution way down - so what's the point of recording in RAW at such a low resolution? Am I missing something here?
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: dmilligan on April 23, 2014, 04:14:23 PM
It's true that SD cameras are not great for RAW video. Doesn't mean it's totally useless.

You can record short bursts at that resolution, or lower the FPS. RAW video can be used at low FPS for applications other than videography such as things (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11487.0) like planetary (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=10896) astrophotography (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=10184).

720p at 24fps should come in at just under 40MB/s. I would be happy if I could do even that with my 60D, which is limited to 20MB/s.

In scenes with a lot of motion/detail H.264 can look like terrible. Even a lower resolution RAW footage may outperform the H.264 at a higher resolution in terms of detail preservation, same would go for motion artifacts. Additionally, having the extra dynamic range and color depth, may be more valuable than simply having higher resolution.

Hello everyone!
I am new with ML and I can't install it. I donwloaded the latest nightly build, copied all the files of the archive to the SD card as it written in the manual on the first page. ML says it was installed, bootflag was also installed, and then the program asked to reboot the camera. I switched off it, took out the battery and inserted again and switched the camera again. But nothing happened, Canon stock firmware is still there. I tried to flash the camera with the original firmware available from the first page of thes thread, but nithing helped.

Could someone help me please to figure out what I've done wrong?
PS. The camera was bought in Germany in December 2013, if this relevant.

Post by: udugru on May 04, 2014, 12:53:11 AM
Hello! Just installed the build yesterday and am eager to help! By the way, great work so far!
I tried to use the fps override function at 0,2 fps, but in recording mode many things went wrong at once: fps setting was suddenly at 0,477. When i pressed record, the video split in 2, at about 1/3 of the height of my monitor. The top video was oddly white and the bottom one had normal colors flickering pink. Additionally when i pressed stop the bottom part became white and the top bart got pink and completely distorted. This is then exactly how the video file looked like in preview.

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi.imgur.com%2FH76fCOC.jpg&hash=7b8cd4f93c58722e0cdf931a6aa3d9f9)(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi.imgur.com%2FBTnP37p.jpg&hash=ef613ac692c8da3532e3bed9c2125251)

I wanted to try and make a time-lapse, but i obviously need longer intervals than 2 seconds.
The other problem is my fast draining batter - any way to switch off the display while recording? :)

A bug: In movie mode, press the rubbish button to enter ML interface, navigate anywhere, 3 seconds later the interface disappears and you see live view again :(

Unrelated question: How safe is the use of dual iso on the 6d? anyone use it for a long period yet?

I REALLY want to help and have time on my hands so, if someone with coding skills and a bit of ML knowledge is ready to fix bugs I would be happy to test everything in detail and write extensive reports of the bugs.

Thanks a lot!

Issue report:
100/2.8 Macro focus stacking fail.

Observations:
1. arrow key (up/down/left/right) focus adjustment works. Script execution OK and pictures are taken. But there is no AF operation during the execution of script. Focus is not changed. I've tried 1:1 and 3m, both fail. My conclusion -- something is wrong between the script and the focus command.
2. Everything works fine with other lenses, 24-70/4L, 24/2.8 IS, even old 50/2.5 macro (no focus report but everything else is OK).

I've repeated the sequence about 5~10 times with 100/2.8 macro and I can do it correctly with all other lenses I listed, therefore I think it's not the same problem you described.

I had 550D (just sold) and ML2.3. Focus stacking seems to work fine back then.
The UI for focus stacking changed in 6D version. I think it should be something related to 6D only.

I just noticed that the 6D lists headphone monitoring under http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/features (http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/features)

Has this been added recently in the nightly builds? It wasn't working on the last version I tried, a couple weeks ago.

Issue report:
100/2.8 Macro focus stacking fail.

Observations:
1. arrow key (up/down/left/right) focus adjustment works. Script execution OK and pictures are taken. But there is no AF operation during the execution of script. Focus is not changed. I've tried 1:1 and 3m, both fail. My conclusion -- something is wrong between the script and the focus command.
2. Everything works fine with other lenses, 24-70/4L, 24/2.8 IS, even old 50/2.5 macro (no focus report but everything else is OK).

April 09 nightly build.

First I should write full name of the lens. It is not 100/2.8 macro. It is 100/2.8 macro USM.

After more tests, I found 100/2.8 macro USM works with step size mode 2/3, but not step size mode 1. I was confused by the name "step size". But since it is defined by Canon, we had to follow it anyway. However, actual unit is not related to that number!

Step size mode 1 means extremely fine, step size mode 2 means fine, step size mode 3 means coarse. There's nothing true about the number.

24-70/4L in step size mode 1 gives approximately 40 steps from Inf to 5m.
70-200/4L in step size mode 1 gives approximately 260 steps from Inf to 5m. In step size mode 2 gives approximately 27 steps from Inf to 5m.

ML UI also leads to some confusion. FF-- is sending focus command in step size mode with larger number. FF- is sending focus command in current step size mode. And ML counts the focus steps in a mixed way. But that is not correct. There is no fixed relation among different step size modes. I found it varies from lens to lens.

For some temporally fix about this issue, I would suggest modifying the field Focus stacking-->Focus steps /picture.
Current version there is only 1-10. This is too small for step size 1 setting. 1-30 or more might be required.

And in the long run I think the UI or focus commands behind should be modified to avoid mixing of focus command in different step size settings.

And sorry I don't have other Canon DSLR with me right now. But now I guess this is not 6D specific. It should be an issue with all other camera models as well.

Hi,
RAW video is not working, is it? I have raw_rec activated. If I start recording video with RAW video feature ON, the video stops recording when arriving to the second second (2"), the red right top corners says 1skipped and the message "Early stop(11). Didn't make it to estimated record time!." is shown. Video recording stops and nothing is saved (not even those 2 seconds...).

I experienced this with Nightly.2014Apr04.6D113 (the message was different, something like "this is a bug! please report it" and now with the version I updated to, magiclantern-Nightly2014May24.6D113.

Sorry if someone has reported this bug already... Is there something to solve this?
Thanks!

One question: After 1% seems to have left and the fork whose name shall never be uttered again doesn't receive any new commits, what's the current perspective of ML on 6d?

I'm not arguing to stop building 6d nightlies, on the contrary, but are there any new upcoming features like the patch manager for mini_iso and dual_iso which cannot be ported to the 6d unless a 1%-quality dev appears out of nowhere? Or is the new code expected to be so high level that even mere users can port it to the 6d with some trial and error procedure?

In any case, imho it should be mentioned here again that currently the advice concerning 6d is "don't get this camera if you want a trouble-free ML experience".
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: a1ex on May 26, 2014, 07:43:30 AM
1% is still active (for example, https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/commits/f68f196807a3442a6bb09d40ecae89f00cb7697a#comment-972332 ).

Also, Maqs had some very nice contributions (GPS, network RE, date/time flicker fix in menu), and he's pretty skilled on the reverse engineering side.

The hardest part with 6D (and all other new ports) is sitting down and ironing all those little quirks. This part doesn't require a lot of skills, but it does require a lot of time, dedication, attention to detail, and the ability to understand an existing codebase (which is a good skill to have). So, help is still welcome for bugfixing and polishing things (on all cameras, not just 6D).

Regarding new features, if something requires camera-specific support and it's interesting enough (like raw video :P ), somebody will port it sooner or later. If the code is already working on two cameras, one being a digic V and the other being a digic IV, it will be likely easy to port it on most other models.

What coding language is used for ML? My son is a developer and I have a 6d? I would be happy to talk to him and see if he would be willing to do a little side work on ML if it would be helpful. Are there devs who would be willing to talk or assist him with getting up to speed? I would love to see more dev work on the 6D side of the house. I would love to see it get updated for the latest Canon firmware update so I can at least have the current Firmware and ML at the same time. For now, I have gone back to Canon 113 so I can continue to use ML as well.
But I would also love to be able to get someone on this side of the house doing more development for those of us on 6D hardware.

Something between this (http://users.ox.ac.uk/~uzdm0006/scans/1kchess/) and this (http://www.nycresistor.com/2012/08/21/ghosts-in-the-rom/).

If one has trouble identifying the language from a public source code repository, or if he asks things like where you can find boot-hack.c, the skill set of that candidate becomes quite obvious ;)

A better option is to start reading the sticky topics from the development area and code something easy (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9625), but useful. Once you have a serious question, there are many people around who can help (some recent examples here (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11896.0) and here (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11985.0)).

Well, in all fairness he was just asking for some basic information to get his son involved who is supposed to know (even more :-)) stuff...

My son is a developer and I have a 6d? I would be happy to talk to him and see if he would be willing to do a little side work on ML if it would be helpful. Are there devs who would be willing to talk or assist him with getting up to speed?

... it doesn't work like that, getting started with embedded ML is not like setting up MS Visual Studio and code some gui apps, it's much more time consuming and trial and error. But on the other hand, coding for ML can be really fun if you have enough time on your hands because you can make your dslr do what *you* want.

It'd be great if your son lends a hand, but he would have to have some interest of his own in the project to have enough motivation to get started - it's not paid work, after all.

 :) I'm using the nightly build from 15 March 2014 for the 6d.
Using it for months now and did not find any errors in it, and got all the magic lantern stuff one would need.
All the "standard" magic lantern stuff, build in intervalmeter, magic zoom, fps override, raw recording etc.
Even MLV raw recording WITH AUDIO works perfect and you can view and delete the recorded clips in camera!
FPS override gives up to 35 FPS frames in canon 25fps mode.
I'm very happy with it  8)

Post by: Marsu42 on June 08, 2014, 10:30:06 AM

Me, too - but question is if any upcoming features (like mini_iso extended dynamic range, patch manager used in dual_iso, new audio system) will be ported to the 6d w/o anyone maintaining it. Currently the nightly 6d build is broken due to changes in the fps override - contrary to what you wrote, alex stated that it doesn't really work (I haven't tried myself).
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: Levas on June 08, 2014, 10:54:02 AM
As long as the new features of magic lantern are not as groundbreaking as raw recording and dual iso, I'm fine  8)
Ofcourse I do hope that the newer functions like mini-iso will eventually be ported, but if not, I can live without it...

Using fps override only for faster fps, like 35fps.
This works fine. I use it with 1728pixel wide clips in 2.39 ratio to record 6 seconds in 35 fps and slow it down to 25 fps in post to get a 8 or 9 second clip.
But I have read lot's of comments that it doesn't work fine for slower fps like 1 or 5 fps.

What is exactly the problem with the 6d nightly build ?
I did see that it is broken for the last weeks, is this gonna be fixed, I believe Alex is the only one with a 6d right ? (Besides 1% who has it's tragic lantern)

Nope, alex doesn't have got a 6d and doesn't want one. 1% seems to be still around somewhat, but doesn't update his TL repo anymore, I guess he now keeps his 6d patches to himself after the recent commotion.

There are some users who can code to some extent around, but no one seems to be willing or have time to volunteer as a 6d maintainer.... so I fear that once there will be some ML refactoring or other in-depth changes the 6d will be left in the dust. Alas, as you said, it's "usable" now so it could be worse.

I'd guess "yes" because they seem to share the same firmware, the crippled version just lacks some hardware so supposedly the fw detects this and just disables/hides the according menu items.

Hello world!

I thought I'd introduce myself.  I'll be spending a good bit of time hacking on ML/porting for the 6D this summer (I shoot 6D if not obvious).  I'm currently at 'zero' but I assume it won't be long before I'll be making useful contributions to the community.  I'm flying out to Austin Texas day after tomorrow to collaborate with this awesome little startup called "Cinetics" and I'll be doing video day in and day out for the next few months (and not just plain vanilla video).  I'm stoked to tap into ML's fps tweaking and intervalometer amongst other things (i.e. rack/trap focus).

I'm currently reading heavy into the general dev discussion to get my bearings, and hopefully I'll have a sensible workflow before long, but any advice you can give to a n00b is much appreciated  :P  I work on a mac (I'm tri-boot ready:  OS X/Ubuntu/Win8), and I've got plenty of object oriented programming, and UNIX experience.

Peace n Love

Hello Nargetdev!
 As a fellow 6D shooter, and as someone who has dabbled in the most basic programming, I just
want to encourage you and say I'm glad that someone else is interested in maintaining the 6D!

I keep having thoughts of trying to get into ML development -- but then I read the stuff  these guys are talking about in the dev. forums and I find myself so lost that I realize I'm a long ways from hacking cameras!  :P

So anyhow, more power to you! Hope to see the 6D back in the game this summer!
Cheers!

Great to hear you're on the 6d, coding most ML stuff is not that difficult *but* you have to find your way through the code first and get an impression how the Canon fw does things (props. av/tv/iso values in 8-steps, ...). Then most things just take a lot of time: finding stubs, testing alex' modules, wrestling with small incompatibilities.

For me, the thing I had to learn is that coding for ML works best "en block" without interruptions, or I forget too much about the whole thing again. You also have to be motivated enough to swap the sd card every other minute from camera to computer to test new code and have to live with very basic log/info box debugging which is not ideal for many cases. A good frustration tolerance certainly helps.

Last not least, it takes a loooooong time from the "works for me on my camera" stage to polish code enough to run on *all* models and have a nice and cozy gui. You'll learn that once your code is in the bitbucket pull request queue, open for comments :-p ... I admit this is usually the stage where I stall because if it "just works" I'd rather get out and take pictures than continue to sit behind a screen.

That said, "just works"  :D does anybody here have an experimental "just works" version available (for 6d) where you can use a native iso lower then iso 100 ?
I'v read somewhere in the mini-iso threads that there is a native iso of 67 or lower on the 5d mark III, don't know what the lowest possible native iso on 6d is ? ::)

I've downloaded the module and will try to do the iso tests in the next few days.

Have to take some more time to read the second link, interesting stuff about the pixel binning difference between the 5d3 and the other camera's (Need to read that again without my kids jumping around in the room... very distracting ;D)
But I couldn't find the part where our help is needed, shall read it when the kids are a sleep.

See my results in the link posted in my previous post:

In the lower iso's the full well capacity is about 3,4 times larger in video mode(1080p) VS photo mode on the 6d
In the higher iso's the full well capacity is about 4 times larger in video mode(1080p) VS photo mode on the 6d

Don't know if my understanding about full well capacity is correct, but could that mean that the 6d in video mode uses a 4 pixel binning method ?

Very sorry if this is answered somewhere else, I just can't find the answer anywhere, I have searched all over these forums and Google in general, it's regarding mlv_play. Everywhere I read I find to view RAW video files in camera I need to load the MLV_Play module, but I can't find it in the build I'm using. Even under the forum post "Canon 6D raw preview on DSLR", someone advises to find that module and turn it on, and the other user thanks them for the advice, he doesn't say he can't find it.
I'm using the nightly build from May 22, "magiclantern-Nightly.2014May22.6D113" the modules that I do list are -
6D_113.sym
arkanoid.mo
autoexpo.mo
deflick.mo
dot_tune.mo
dual_iso.mo
ettr.mo
file_man.mo
mlv_rec.mo
mlv_snd.mo
pic_view.mo
raw_rec.mo
silent.mo

No MLV_Play anywhere. Advice? Thanks so much.

Anyone care to share ROM1.BIN of EOS 6D with me?. Just wanted to disassemble it and follow alex's "finding stubs" tutorial cause today I ordered a 6D. Might take some days to arrive and in the meantime I could try to help in finding missing stubs.

To answer myself. these seem to be ok after spending some time to recheck. I will post GUI timer stubs later, too.

Here you go for the missing stubs for 6D_113. Someone please commit 'em:

Code: [Select]
/** File I/O **/
NSTUB(0xFF3CE674,  FIO_SeekSkipFile)


/** GUI timers **/
NSTUB(0xFFABDF40 - RAM_OFFSET,  SetTimerAfter)
NSTUB(0xFFCCB328 - RAM_OFFSET,  SetHPTimerAfterNow)          // 1st sub called before [DL Error] startNormalSpeedADC. For EOS_6D_113 this is sub_007E44. Add RAM_OFSET to it and you get FFCCB328
NSTUB(0xFFCCB418 - RAM_OFFSET,  SetHPTimerNextTick)          // 1st sub called before [DL Error] normalSpeedADCCBR. For EOS_6D_113 this is sub_007F34. Add RAM_OFSET to it and you get FFCCB418
NSTUB(0xFFCD1A90 - RAM_OFFSET,  CancelTimer)                // called from CancelUnaviFeedBackTimer and many others like DP_CancelTimer_AbortEndEvent and pick 2nd sub. For EOS_6D_113 this is sub_00E5Ac. Add RAM_OFSET to it and you get FFCD1A90


/** GUI **/
NSTUB(0xFF1A9E80,  gui_massive_event_loop)             //warning unsure if this is ok. looks different compared to 5d3 but shall be ok. EOS 6D_113

Post by: a1ex on June 22, 2014, 12:13:55 AM
0xFF3CE674 and 0xFFABDF40 do not look like the beginning of a function.

0xFFCCB328 seems to be more like SetTimerAfter (not 100% sure, but the stubs test from Debug menu will tell).

CancelTimer is OK.

You may also want to look here: https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-request/519/fix-6d-nightly-boot-up-cannot-use-mempatch
(in particular, if you define ML_RESERVED_MEM as 640*1024, does it work?)

Hmm sorry neither have QEMU up & running nor do I hold an 6D in my hands. Build environment is broken atm. Just ordered a 6D and tried to find some stubs via learning by doing while waiting for it to arrive. You were right I flipflopped some values but I think it should now be ok for FIO_SeekSkipFile and SetTimerAfter and the rest. Can you or anyone confirm?

Code: [Select]
/** File I/O **/
NSTUB(0xFF3327F0,  FIO_SeekSkipFile)

/** GUI timers **/
NSTUB(0xFFCD1890 - RAM_OFFSET,  SetTimerAfter)
NSTUB(0xFFCCB328 - RAM_OFFSET,  SetHPTimerAfterNow)         
NSTUB(0xFFCCB418 - RAM_OFFSET,  SetHPTimerNextTick)         
NSTUB(0xFFCD1A90 - RAM_OFFSET,  CancelTimer)               

/** Task info **/
NSTUB(0xFFCCCDF0, GetTaskName)


NSTUB(0xFF1A9E80,  gui_massive_event_loop)             //not used on 6D
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: a1ex on June 22, 2014, 01:03:56 AM
Looks OK at first sight; if it passes the stub test, they are correct.

gui_massive_event_loop is not used on 6D, but it's the right one.
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: nikfreak on June 22, 2014, 01:48:26 AM
dunno if that's used on 6D but noticed getTaskname in latest commits on 600D and have ssen it in 5d 123. If used on 6D then it should be:

NSTUB(0xFFCCCDF0, GetTaskName)

How do I install 6D firmware version 1.1.4 when I Magic Lantern installed?
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: a1ex on June 22, 2014, 06:10:13 PM
Source code compiles cleanly now if you disable FEATURE_FPS_OVERRIDE (which is broken, to my knowledge - https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/issue/1975/6d-fps-override-creating-mangled-colors ). You will also need to comment out FRAME_SHUTTER_BLANKING_WRITE in consts.h.

Before resuming the nightly builds, I would like somebody to compile the code, run the stubs test (Debug menu), and post a screenshot of the Free Memory dialog. And, of course, some general checking to make sure the port is not totally broken.

If nobody volunteers to fix FPS override in the next two weeks, I'll resume the nightly builds without this feature.

Hi guys, thanks for bringing 6D back to ML!  :D

As I moved from a 650D with ML to a 6D without ML I'm missing lots of features...

Gonna start TODAY installing ML on the 6D and try to write an installation guide.

If you need any files for development or bugfixing just ask  ;)

I have a 6D and a mac book pro. I would like install ML in my 6D, using! mac OS.kindly help me to find out the installation process. I found one youtube video help but that is not using Mac. Pls pls help. Thanks a lot

Are you sure?  Is this specific to the 6D?  On my 5D3, when correctly loaded, the raw video option is shown in the menu, with help text that states it only works in movie mode.

ok i am on my 6D now, magiclantern-Nightly.2014May22.6D113..in photo mode, on the movie tab...and I have 2 options for raw...are your Raw modules turned on, mlv_rec and raw_rec? and yes they should show in the ML menu regardless of mode!

I'm pressing the Trash Can button to open the ML menu. I selected the ML Movie menu. Then I selected Movie Tweaks. The RAW feature does not appear. Yes, I installed the module and rebooted the camera.
They show in the main list not in movie tweaks! Should be the 2 just above tweaks.
 
When you installed the nightly, did you copy and overwrite the files or did you delete all the ML files then copy over nightly files? What is on your SD card?
Also what tutorial did you use to do the first, initial ML install?

Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: erox76 on June 24, 2014, 01:45:40 AM
I posted the following over on the 6D - Install guide and Raw Shooting thread, just thought I would post it here to, with the added question, will the special updater file to dump the firmware, dump a copy of v1.1.4 of the firmware that I have on my new camera so that I can re-install that version if I start playing with ML on v1.1.3?

Also, although my time is rather limited at the moment, I would be happy to help out with development of ML for the 6D.

Anyway, here was my post on the other thread just for background (rather than re-typing).

Over the week end I got my new Canon 6D, lovely camera, and a nice upgrade from my 60D with it's Full Frame sensor.

Now I love Magic Lantern on my 60D, I use it mainly for the Intervalometer, and advanced bulb timer etc for time lapse photography.

I was hoping to put ML onto my 6D, and looking at the instructions you need to downgrade the firmware to v1.1.2 first, which I have no problem with, except that my Camera has come with v1.1.4 of the 6D firmware.  From my searching it appears that v1.1.4 has yet to be released by Canon, I have been unable to located that version of the firmware anywhere to download, so I am a little reluctant to downgrade to v1.1.2, since I will then not be able to go back to v1.1.4 until it is released officially.

So does anyone know how to backup the existing firmware, and also if ML will work with version 1.1.4?

I was reading somewhere about the 1.1.4 firmware upgrade and there didn't seem to be any real changes other than removal of third party battery support! So you can only use official canon batteries! So i don't think anyone here is bothering with it yet!
oops actually i may be wrong there, possibly only a rumor!
Oh and in case you missed it this is the thread to get ML on your 6D "first 2 posts of this thread"

Dear All:

Pardon me if it is not the right forum to discuss. But I need desperately your help.

i). Wish : To install ML in my Canon 6D.
ii). My set up : Canon 6D and MacPro OS 10.9.2
iii). I have followed the steps :

Download .RAR file: bit.ly/1auplFt
1. Download and extract .rar file.
2. Check if 6D is running 1.1.2 firmware.
3. Put "Canon 1.1.2 Firmware" .fir file on SD card and install it on 6D. Format SD card on computer.
4. Put "Files to run Magic Lantern on 6D Firmware 1.1.2" three files on SD card root directory.
5. Install ML 1.1.2 on 6D (in "M" dial mode). Turn off and pull batteries out and format SD card on computer (VERY IMPORTANT).
6. Put "Canon 1.1.3 Firmware" .fir file on SD card and install it on 6D. Turn off 6D, take out 7. SD card and put it into computer.
7.  Run "EOScard.exe" program on PC. Check off "EOS_DEVELOP" and "BOOTDISK". Press save.
8. On computer erase all files on SD card.
9. Put "Files to run Magic Lantern of 6D Firmware 1.1.3" three files on SD card root directory.
10. Put SD card back into 6D and turn it on. Magic Lantern is now installed!

I have done till number 6 but cant do the number 7 point in my Mac. I cant open any .exe file. I have taken my card from Mac to Windows PC and try to do the instruction. But it is not working.

Now I am stuck with my camera and scared to do anything without help from you.

Kindly help me how can I install ML in my 6D using Mac.

Thanks a lot.

The firmware checksum done by ML at startup will tell you.

Thanks a1ex!

Will the checksum display as an "error mesage" at startup (if wrong), or shall i manuale seek it somewhere?

And if checksum is OK, is there any thing special to be carefull with in this case? Can ML change gps-settings that can lead to fault in the non-gps-model?

//Fredrik
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: a1ex on June 24, 2014, 09:23:51 PM
If the checksum doesn't match, it will not boot.

If the GPS hardware is not present, and you change that setting with ML, the end result can be anything between no effect at all, and permanent brick. The only way to tell is to try it, but you do this at your own risk. I can't guarantee a recovery if anything goes wrong.
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: 85holmberg on June 24, 2014, 09:33:25 PM
Thanks alot for your fast reply :)

I'm well awere of that ML is my own risk as user :P
(and I have used it succsessfully on 650d for a year)

I have heard that ML now has features to turn off GPS on the "standard" version of 6D. But i guess that it not "mess" with the GPS settings by default if i not activate this tweaks manually?
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: a1ex on June 24, 2014, 09:43:00 PM
Right.

But in this case, you may be the first who tries the GPS tweak on a camera without this hardware. And since properties (Canon settings) are persistent, and sometimes without proper safeguards in Canon code (http://www.reikanphotography.co.uk/blog/2011/11/Canon-EOS-Cameras-Recovering-from-Err-70), I thought it's worth mentioning.
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: 85holmberg on June 24, 2014, 10:53:02 PM
But I don't have to test the GPS tweaks, right?

Or is it unavoidable to use a recent ML on 6D without running the tweaks?

2) Make sure you are running Canon firmware 1.1.3.
3) Copy ML files on the card and run Firmware Update.
Uninstallation:
1) Run Firmware Update from your ML card.
2) Follow the instructions.

Question :
1. Where do i get the ML files? What is the link to copy ML files. Pls guide.
2. I have tried with 2 cards so many times and i guess i have formatted my card already around 50 times. My cards are 32gb class 10. Should I need to buy new card and try?

@Apon: http://builds.magiclantern.fm/ (take a recent build that did not fail)

@erox76: most of ML code can be emulated in QEMU: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=2864.msg117430#msg117430

It's in early stage, but already usable for debugging many things, like the boot process, or ML menus, or VRAM overlays like histogram or screen layout, or even stepping through ML source code in a debugger (this one deserves a tutorial).

then your not looking hard enough that was copied directly from the page!!! When I click show older builds, reading down the list Date: 2014-05-21 18:37:47 -0400 is the last stable build for the 6D!! But when you download it the file will say its from may 22 magiclantern-Nightly.2014May22.6D113.zip

Very sorry if this is answered somewhere else, I just can't find the answer anywhere, I have searched all over these forums and Google in general, it's regarding mlv_play. Everywhere I read I find to view RAW video files in camera I need to load the MLV_Play module, but I can't find it in the build I'm using. Even under the forum post "Canon 6D raw preview on DSLR", someone advises to find that module and turn it on, and the other user thanks them for the advice, he doesn't say he can't find it.
I'm using the nightly build from May 22, "magiclantern-Nightly.2014May22.6D113" the modules that I do list are -
6D_113.sym
arkanoid.mo
autoexpo.mo
deflick.mo
dot_tune.mo
dual_iso.mo
ettr.mo
file_man.mo
mlv_rec.mo
mlv_snd.mo
pic_view.mo
raw_rec.mo
silent.mo

No MLV_Play anywhere. Advice? Thanks so much.
I finally got around to playing the raw video functions and having issues as well as not being able to find mlv_play Module anywhere, did this become unstable and get removed?
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: a1ex on June 25, 2014, 10:23:12 PM
Get it from an older build.

When the nightly builds will be resumed (I'm still waiting for the stub test results), mlv_play will be included again. Most of the missing stubs were required by mlv_play (and the build system removes modules with missing dependencies).

Hi, i've just install ML on my 6D. First i want con congratulated with you for your beautiful works!!! In second i want to ask how can i star to REC in RAW 14-bit.

I have two questions:
1) Is better using RAW Recording v1.0 or RAW Recording v2.0!? (i think the second one)
2) How can i start to REC in this format!?

Sorry but a newer of this project and i need your help. ;)

Thanks a lot!!!  ;)

Apparently so.. I believe this is due to the write speeds to cards is capped at around 40-50 mbs on the 6D! If they put CF cards instead of sd...no problem

Hi. I have Canon 6D with Tragic Lantern inside it (firmware is already 1.1.3)
I'm thinking to delete it and replace it with ML.
What steps should I do? From my understanding I should do just a1ex instructed:
1) Format the card from the camera.
2) Make sure you are running Canon firmware 1.1.3.
3) Copy ML files on the card and run Firmware Update.

Do I need to remove TL from my camera first? Or is there any extra step to avoid TL to clash with ML?
Thank you.

a) format my card in my camera
b) insert card in my Mac.
c) Copied all the files (2 files+1 folder) from the build.
d) inserted the card into my camera
e) update firmware. Green menu as a1ex shown apperad on the screen. wait for 30 secs according to the screen instruction
f) restart camera
g) hit the trash button.

I have tried with both the builds. But it was same result all the time.

Am I doing something wrong?

are you sure your selecting 6D from the dropdown? but just in case, you know where you said you ran firmware update and then waited 30 secs!? if you wait those 30 sec, it uninstalls ML!! WHEN IT SAYS UPDATE COMPLETE AND YOU SEE COUNTDOWN, REBOOT AND SEE IF THAT WORKS!!

I am sure I have downloaded 6D.113

I did what you say. After hit the trash button now i am seeing the magic lantern menu. But it disappears after few secs.

When I start recording so far i heard that the menu bar will be on the screen. But it is not there.

I tried to find out where is the "M" module is but didnt found.

Anyway my bad luck. I am trying to install and work with ML last 3 days. Tomorrow will be my shooting for 4 days.

Will try again some other days. Thanks for the help.

Just to note that the build date/time are based on your current timezone and is the reason both @erox76 (timezone of -0400) and @Apon (timezone of +0600) don't see the same thing and causes this kind of confusion.

Hi, I have a Canon 6d with Nightly Build ML.  It seems that motion detection using difference of frames is not working (exposure difference does work).  Can anyone help.  I would like very much to contribute with ML myself.  I have good programming skills.   If some developer could just tell me (or point me to) how to compile, I would be glad to help to fiz some bugs.   Cheers

This one is hard to fix: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11447.msg118670#msg118670

Once I'll fix it on 5D3.123, it will likely fix it everywhere.

To get started, follow the sticky topics from the development area, and the easiest thing to do right now is to run the tests I've asked earlier in this thread, in order to resume the nightly builds.
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: erox76 on June 27, 2014, 08:03:59 AM
Source code compiles cleanly now if you disable FEATURE_FPS_OVERRIDE (which is broken, to my knowledge - https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/issue/1975/6d-fps-override-creating-mangled-colors ). You will also need to comment out FRAME_SHUTTER_BLANKING_WRITE in consts.h.

Before resuming the nightly builds, I would like somebody to compile the code, run the stubs test (Debug menu), and post a screenshot of the Free Memory dialog. And, of course, some general checking to make sure the port is not totally broken.

If nobody volunteers to fix FPS override in the next two weeks, I'll resume the nightly builds without this feature.
Like I said before I know almost nothing about programming!! If you or someone can set up the files in whatever way (commenting out?) and allow me to download them, also provided someone can remind me the command process to compile it I will run whatever tests you need on my 6D! or If someone can compile it for me, even better!!!!!

Hello, this is my first message. First of all, sorry for my english, I'm not a native speaker.
I'm a happy owner of a 6D. Before this camera, I've owned a 60D where I've been using ML a lot, mostly for shooting with manual lenses, with no problems at all.
I'm sorry to see that the 6D port has almost no active contributors. I'd love to help but my programming skills are limited to web design: php, javascript...

As I can see, some users are getting issues trying to install ML and I'm a little bit scared about it. Maybe anyone can recommend a specific nightly build that succeeded to install flawlessy?

Or maybe should I directly switch to TL in order to get something more stable? I use it basically to have the focus peak for video and for shooting with manual lenses.

Thanks and best regards.

Got my 6d delivered but had to send it back immediately cause battery and battery door cover were missing. 6D had been sold as almost new to me but looked like crap when it arrived. hopes were high. price was to good to believe. Got my money back now and looking for another used one as I cannot spend money for a new one. Have to spend what i got from selling my Nikon D7000 equipment.

Current state: blindly maintained (the developers who maintain it don't have a 6D, and those who do are refusing to maintain it or are too busy with real life). Anybody with coding skills and lots of free time (and of course a 6d) is welcome to maintain this port.

Nightly builds: http://builds.magiclantern.fm/

Installation:
1) Format the card from the camera.
2) Make sure you are running Canon firmware 1.1.3 (http://pel.hu/down/eos6d-v113-win.zip).
3) Copy ML files on the card and run Firmware Update.

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


Just followed your ML installation instructions for Canon 6D. It works like a charm and ML is really AWESOME. Thanks for this great work!

There should be an audio menu in that build.
I'm using the nightly build from 15-03-2014 for the 6d and it has an audio menu. (audio recording with raw mlv recording works perfect)
You probably need to load the mlv_snd module. on the module tab.

I have no idea if it even works since I don't have a 6D, but it compiled, so you can test it if you want. I put in the raw_rec and mlv_rec modules with the SRM changes. And added the stubs from this thread.
https://bitbucket.org/mk11174/magic-lantern/downloads/magiclantern-Nightly.2014Jul09.6D113.zip (https://bitbucket.org/mk11174/magic-lantern/downloads/magiclantern-Nightly.2014Jul09.6D113.zip)

Please someone test this new nightly - especially do some memory tests. Additionally provide reported SRM values and if possible provide the increased values for recording time in different resoltions. Please report your findings in the SRM thread here (read the whole thread to know what this is):

Where can I find the module mlv?

If you're in the ML menu, you have the "M" tab, far to the right.
Here you can activate modules.
When you use ML for the first time, these modules are not loaded by default.
You have to activate them and turn off your camera, and turn it on again for the modules being loaded (at startup).
I suggest you activate all three modules with MLV in the name

Yup, have seen that. Will have an eye for that. maybe you can help me a little bit. After reading through http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11080.0 (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11080.0) I think I need an overview of what's working, what's not and what needs to be backported and so on. Looks like lots of people of older camera models are missing features and so on. But I for myself need to focus first on 6D. So I put up a public spreadsheet where 6D owners can contribute. Once I hold the camera in my hands I can do my own tests and contribute to ML code where I am capable of doing so. Yes, i know the issues page on bitbucket for 6D (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/issues?version=6D). But that's only one side of the issues reported. when looking to TL issue tracker that's not the way I want to start cause ppl seem to be reporting here and there and I have no clue if ML issues are up2date.

here's the link:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1esD8gjphQh3_Y1wnJoUXikMXgY0fNvxIy909_Cf9EM8

sorry I needed to set it this way up. I want to have an overview as reading though all topics and comments I feel like being lost and I bet once holding camera in my hands I won't find all missing feature / bug myself cause my priorities are stills shooting and I come from Nikon. Never hold a canon before in my hands so where to know what's bugged or missing...

I setup a thread here (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=10593.0) for users to discuss the things for backporting, but seems no one was really interested.

Marsu42 (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=213) has a 6D and will have a good idea on things that need to be done, but looks like he hasn't been online for a month.

Off the top of my head, this needs doing (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=3904.msg119526#msg119526).

Some other random stuff that needs 6D data, is this (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=12375.0) (I think), this (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=10111.msg117955#msg117955) and this (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=10111.msg118232#msg118232).

No problem.

Always willing to help, would love to have even better "native" iso's on the 6d. Hopefully halve a stop of extra dynamic range can be squeezed out of it. :)

Maybe you should search on youtube, for some visual help on using magic lantern.

Don't know which build you downloaded, but if it's one from 2014 it should be something like this.

Turn on your camera.
Hit the "trash button".
By hitting the trash button you see the magic lantern menu
If you now scroll through the tabs in the menu, you'll see that there is one tab that has the title "Modules".
The tab Modules is just a simple list of modules available in you're build,.
As you can see in the Modules tab, the modules in the list are set to "OFF".
If you use the arrow key's you can go to specific modules in this list and by pushing the "set" button on your camera you can turn them "ON, will load".
This means they will be loaded by the next time you turn on your camera.
Now turn all modules with "mlv" in the name to "ON, will load".
Turn of your camera
Turn on your camera
Set your camera in video mode.
hit the trash button to enter the magic lantern menu
go to the tab with the name Movie (It's the tab with the movie camera symbol)
Go with the arrow keys to the option "RAW VIDEO(MLV) and set it to "ON".
Now press the "Q" button on your camera to set some settings you like.
Hit the trash button to get out of the menu.
Now if you hit the "start/stop" button on your camera, you're recording raw video ! :D

Something I don't get with MLV for the 6D, maybe someone can help.

In Raw video mode, the cropmark remains on the monitor while you film in 2.39:1 so you can frame exactly.

In MLV raw mode, once the 6D starts recording, the cropmark disappear and you are back on liveview mode.

There's probably a way to disable the Canon liveview as indicated, but I hit the info button and nothing happens.

Thanks if anyone can help.
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: Levas on July 18, 2014, 09:21:25 PM
If the crop marks are visible or not has to do with "global draw" settings.
In the Magic lantern "overlay" menu, you have to set "Global draw" on(all modes).
Within the MLV menu, where you can set resolutions etc. you have to set "global draw" to allow.

About to pull the trigger on the 6D as well!

Is ML's intervalometer function working working well?  Or will I need to buy an external intervalometer?

Thanks for the great job on the development!
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: Levas on July 19, 2014, 11:25:13 AM
As far I can tell all the basic magic lantern functions work, also working;
-Intervalometer
-dual iso
-raw video
-mlv raw video
-mlv raw video with audio
During video recording you can use numereous overlays, like magic zoom, raw histogram, spotmeter etc.

All the builds out there are for firmware version 1.1.3  (need to go to firmware 1.1.2 to set the boot flag)
Canon has launched firmware 1.1.4(with non interesting fixes) a while ago, so keep in mind that you don't upgrade the firmware once you're using Magic Lantern and stick to version 1.1.3.

Hi. I'd like to try out magic lantern on my 6d. I currently have firmware version 1.1.4 and my questions are:

What do i need to download from magic lantern ? The nightly build for canon 6d ?
From what i've seen on youtube i need to have version 1.1.2 and 1.1.3. How can i get those firmwares ?
Is there a recommended documentation i can follow while installing the firmware ?
What is the procedure to entirely and safely remove magic lantern from everywhere ?
I've read about a warning that you should not remove the card right after you open the card door but instead wait for the led to turn off. What happens if you accidentally do remove the card before the led turns off ?

Thanks !

So if you load one of these modules that are not 100% will it just not load and you can continue using? after possibly popping batt out of course.

Thank you Levas! You have been very helpful!! Ok, Next question. About install stuff. You mentioned you need 1.1.2 to set bootflag (not even sure what bootflag is...)? or can you just have 1.1.3 on then install like the normal stable builds?

Also are there any tricks I need to know? like dont insert a blank card with out ml on it, or dont pop the memory card out too fast before blinking lights?

Thanks again for all your help!

Probably you don't need to go back to 1.1.2 anymore(was necessary back in the days when I installed it), according to the first post.

Just do what it says, download the nightly build and run the firmware update option (nightly builds contains a 1.1.3 firmware file).
You can't screw up that easily...
The firmware update only has to be done once, then you're camera is prepared to run magic lantern forever on.
When a new build comes out, just throw away the magic lantern files on your memory card and put the new build files on it  8)

If you're doing things right, you're camera can run a piece of software(magic lantern) from your SD card.
So if you put in a blank card, nothing bad happens, you're camera is just the way it was when you bought it.

Only thing comes to mind is that your battery should be fully charged before doing the firmware update, you don't wanna run out of power during a firmware update  :D
But that's the same canon will say, when you do a normal firmware update...

Go on, try it, live on the edge !
You got nothing to lose, except a camera that cost you 1500 dollar   ;D

So if you put in a blank card, nothing bad happens, you're camera is just the way it was when you bought it.

That's not the whole story. The cam's bootflag will still be set, causing a delay up to 1,5-2 seconds recovering from sleep.

Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: Levas on July 19, 2014, 10:37:27 PM
That's what I call nothing bad...a 2 second delay, at least you don't end up with a bricked camera  :D
I believe kbeecher means, when you accidentately put in a blank card someday...

But you're right, if you don't want to use magic lantern anymore for a long time, you're better of by resetting the boot flag (see first post)

Hi! New here...

I was recording in RAW and had a few questions:

1. I set the resolution to 1280x720 and when I record, the live view shrinks in size to about 3/5th the normal viewable screen. Is this normal and are there any workarounds?

2. Which RAW recording module should I start with? The MLV version (2.0) or the RAW (1.0)? Which is better or more stable?

3. Is there a way to view the RAW or MLV video files on the camera? I tried using the file manager but was unsuccessful.

Thank you in advance!

Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: Levas on July 21, 2014, 01:17:14 PM
1. Can't do anything about the shrinking.
 The live view is 1808 pixels wide, it's read from the sensor in that way. So if you record 1280 pixels wide, it just takes the 1280 pixels portion of the total of 1808 wide live view

2. MLV and RAW are both stable, MLV is the newest and is the (only) one which is kept up to date by the magic lantern team. Also MLV has the option to record audio during raw video capture.
So I prefer MLV.

3. In the newest build there are 3 modules for MLV, one for recording MLV, one for sound option, and one for playback MLV.
   If you enable the MLV_play module, you can playback MLV files by selecting them with the filemanager.
Playback isn't at real speed and real resolution, the camera is able to playback at at about 10 frames per second.

About point 1, if you want to have wider resolutions then 1280, you can consider to use an aspect ratio of 2.39.
I'm using aspect ratio 2,39 a lot with 1728 wide resolution, with a fast card (sandisk pro 45MB/s) you can shoot clips with audio, which are 17 seconds in length before the memory buffer is full.
Depends on what you're filming if 17 seconds clip length is enough...

I tried this (2.39 with 1728) as you suggested with a 64gb 45mb/s card and I can get about 3-5 seconds of footage before frame clipping. Is there another setting I am missing?

Post by: Levas on July 21, 2014, 06:05:10 PM
Forgot to say, I use aspect ratio 2.39 and 1728 pixels width with 25p, I live in PAL world (30p will fill up the buffer faster).
But you probably forgot to put on some functions which can be found in the raw video menu (where you also set the aspect ratio and pixel width)
Depending on your build you can see probably two of the following functions, put these "on" for better performance/ bigger memory buffer.

-Memory hack (available in the builds made before july 2014)
-Extra hacks (available in all builds I believe)
-SRM memory (available in the builds made in July 2014)

Not sure if this has been addressed yet, but found a fun little mess yesterday out shooting. If you enable long exposure noise reduction from the canon menu it screws up what you see when you use FPS override and looks like a mess, if anything (i usually go down to 1 or less to focus on stars)

Also, when shooting longer exposures the camera processes it after the picture is shot, and takes MUCH longer to view. AKA can't properly use the intervalometer function exactly for long exposure timelapses.

disabling the long exposure noise reduction setting i turned on fixes these. :D
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: Levas on July 23, 2014, 01:09:57 AM
You're using FPS override AND intervalometer for time lapses ?
I don't get it  ??? FPS override is for video recording and intervalometer is for Phototaking, or are you using Silent pictures ?

The long exposure noise reduction option from the canon menu just takes another picture without opening the shutter, a so called black frame.
So if you're exposure is set to 10 seconds, the camera will take another picture of 10 seconds without opening the shutter( so one picture of 10 seconds, takes 20 seconds...That's why it is taking so long), the data in this black frame is extracted from the first picture.
And if you're using FPS override, it probably sees the black frame as a normal picture, so you're probably ending up with a weird flickering video.
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: kbeecher on July 23, 2014, 04:08:06 AM
weird. pretty sure i had that turned on, on my t2i and I never had this problem... maybe not tho.

I use FPS override so i can look in live view, and zoom in, and focus on a star. it shows up MUCH brighter, but takes for ever for the camera to react. oh well. best way ive found.

Then just go about my normal picture settings and start the intervelometer.
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: Levas on July 23, 2014, 09:56:07 AM
ah  :) now I get it, you use FPS override for a brighter more visible live view.
I always forget to use that option, ending up with a dark live view in search for some white points(stars)

You can press the magnifying glass button on you camera to zoom in, in live view(and then start recording raw video), although framing is not correct, live view shows 5x zoom or 10x zoom image.
The resulting video will be about 3x zoom...

My weapon against most aliasing is developing the raw dng's in RawTherapee (http://www.rawtherapee.com)
In RawTherapee you can choose different demosaicing options, "lmmse" and "amaze" both do a good job of getting rid of most aliasing.

Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: Levas on July 25, 2014, 05:15:07 PM
I'm using RawTherapee 4.0 for mac, version 3 had some troubles with pink highlights for Magic lantern raw dng's.

You got 3 tabs, file browse, Queue and editor tab.
If you're in the editor tab, you get six tabs on the right for developing the picture.
In the raw tab (5th one), you can set the demosaicing method. In most cases I use "lmmse" sometimes I use "Amaze".
Further down you have 2 sliders, one for suppressing false color, depends on your image how high you need it, most times a setting of 2 is enough.

Set the white balance in the color tab (3d tab).
My frames all start out pink, so I first use the tint slider.

Then you go to the exposure tab(first one of the 6).
Click on the neutral button (cause you don't wanna use the "auto levels" button (which is used by default, and causes exposure differences during your frames.)
Set the exposure by using the sliders.

Then go to "Detail tab" (the second tab).
The sharpening amount I set to 100, (which is 250 by default).

And then comes the magic trick, add some, I mean, lots of microcontrast:
Enable microcontrast and use 3x3 matrix.
Put the quantity to 80 and uniformity to 50.
The microcontrast option works best for clean low iso shots.

After this I paste the settings to all dng's from one clip and put them all to the Queue for batch output (in my case 8-bit TIFF's, for further use in DaVinci Resolve)

Some usefull shortkeys:
Ctrl-A = selecting all pictures in the folder
Ctrl-V = paste settings to selected pictures (don't forget to copy the processing profile to the clipboard by using the button available in RawTherapee)
Ctrl-B = Put all selected pictures to the processing Queue (older versions of Raw Therapee had an other shortcut for this, I believe Ctrl-Q)

I'm kind an Alien to this. I bought my Canon 6D with 1.1.4 firmware in July 2014. Should I downgrade it to 1.1.2 then follow your steps from this video? I would appreciate if someone help me out here and tell me how can I do that. I have been researching a lot over the Internet but I couldn’t find any solution.  :(

You don't need to go back to 1.1.2, just get 1.1.3 and then you should be good.

Hi Guys,

So I recently tried to instal ML for my 6D, and I used this tutorial video for instruction;
However, when I get to step 7, which is the part where i make the card bootable, the eoscard program keeps giving me the error message, "No Zip Found"... what do i do now? it's the last step, and i'm afraid to use my camera at all now, lest i damage or destroy it. i'm at the end of my rope here, PLEASE help!!!  :'( :-[

So I saw on another forum post about running headphones through the AV jack and still keeping the picture up is possible just like the T2i, but on the 6D. When is this going to be put on the nightly build? or why has it not yet? Would of been awesome to use today instead of blindly maintaining audio. :P

Can anyone confirm if this is *normal* behavior?

Using the Bulb Timer, I noticed the exposure value in the image that was taken isn't exactly what was set. For example, I set the Bulb Timer to 10s, after the image was taken and reviewing the image the exposure value at the upper left of the image shows 10"6. I went ahead to M mode (turned off Bulb Timer at this point) and set exposure to 10 seconds to do another test. Reviewing the image shows exactly 10". Thoughts?

The said behavior is somewhat similar to what most external remote/intervalometer gives wherein the exposure value isn't exactly set for taking the image.

Using magiclantern-Nightly.2014Jul18.6D113 on this.

@Audionut and @ Nikfreak

Nope, it should be corrected. The test should be done with the fullres-silent-pics branch (the offsets changed).

With these results, ETTR on this camera is also not much better than random exposure.

Help is needed, Alex want's us to have the offsets tested, otherwise he throws the Canon 6d out of the nightly builds (by the first of august...)
See the Full-res-Silent-pics topic for more information (see my and alex's posts on page 7)
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=12523.msg124063#msg124063

Offset data is known already, I've read it in the EXIF info in an original CR2 from my 6d
The offset seen in exif info from normal Canon CR2 is:
Sensor Left Border = 84
Sensor Top Border = 50
Sensor Right Border = 5555
Sensor Bottom Border = 3697
Which results in an image 5472 width and 3648 Height
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released

Loving the nightly build attention for 6D.

Thank you SO MUCH Devs!

I'm having trouble with the mlv_snd module. Don't have any control over it beyond on/off, rate, and log.

Anybody working on this? I'd love at least some analog gain control. Shooting a short film in a couple days with a wireless lav system and it would be amazing if I could skip recording to an external recorder.

Thanks again, guys. So happy to see the 6d working its way back. Raw video is changing my life!
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: Levas on July 31, 2014, 09:30:07 PM
MLV_sound works together with the audio controls in the canon menu.

So you can manual adjust the audiolevel in the canon menu.

This give you some controls, although I have no idea if you can check if it's only using analog gain ?

 :) Good to see more and more users with a 6d  :)

Remember, to keep Magic Lantern for the 6d alive and up to date, it's always good to look if you can help development somewhere:

Topic:Want to help with development, without having to code?
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=12657

Some things are already done for 6d, some still need to be done , for example

Measure how the camera does pixel binning

This one requires a suitable target to photograph.  If you have a resolution target, please jump over and help a1ex.

Accurate temperature reporting

From this one I already did the PAL and NTSC screen dumps for 6d, will do the screen dumps with SD monitor attached in the near future.
But I'm not using a HDMI monitor and don't have a HDMI cable, so if someone could do the screen dumps for 6d with HDMI monitor attached...
Fixing HDMI (monitor) related problems
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=12375.0
With some new development of QMENU, it has become somewhat easier to look at monitor related issues, without the developers requiring an actual HDMI device.  To help, simply dump some image buffers.

If this doesn't work: Format card again, download Canon's firmware version 1.1.3 from here:

Format card again and start ML installation process once more.

As far as I know, the 5x and 10x zoom used for crop mode, are showing the the content of you're focus box, the white square on your live view.
If you can't see a white square box, switching AF off and on, on the cameralens will help. You can move the white box with the arrow keys to the center.
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: Sidneywish on August 11, 2014, 10:35:34 AM
Nope I'm not talking crop mode. Just regular mlv raw shooting. Depending on the builds, the cropmark (ie widescreen mark) is sometimes off center a bit, thus not giving the exact shooting mark. In other updates, it re-adjusts.

This one needs to be really watched because we need to know, in regular mode, if the framing is correct or not.

It doesn't matter if you shoot 2.39:1 or 16/9, the right edge of the cropmark here, in the latest build, if off the monitor a slight bit. This was not in the build before that.

Just to make sure:
You downloaded Canon's firmware 1.1.3 from Pelican's site and installed it?
Set cam's settings (including Fn) to factory defaults?
Dialed M?
And installation failed again?

If so: Please contact 1% and ask him how to remove TL's bootflag.
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: 1% on August 11, 2014, 10:30:12 PM
There's no difference in ml/tl bootflag setting. There is only 1 in camera boot flag. To swap versions you just copy the files from the zip to the card. The card still has to be bootable for ANY autoexec.bin to run.

Quote
If this doesn't work: Format card again, download Canon's firmware version 1.1.3 from here:

Reinstalling 1.1.3 doesn't remove the boot flag. Formatting the card will unmark it as bootable and then nothing will run, fix this with EOScard (overwrite anything it auto downloads with whatever you want). With luck this is what happened and you don't need to mess with the fir ever again.

Its my magic lantern fork mainly for 6D/EOSM/50D/7D and sometimes 600D. So tragic lantern, ml vs tl, etc.

Regardless though, one of 2 things is happening.

1. Your card isn't bootable. No bin runs.
2. Your camera never had ML/TL/chocolate rain and the installer is again broken by changes to fonts or something else.

So to fix #1 make SURE the card is bootable by EOScard. It should keep the bootable flags when you close/restart the program and remove the card.
To fix #2, download/extract a whatever lantern zip from around 2014-03-17, which is when the installer was made and also be sure the canon 113 firmware file isn't in the root of the card.

After you successfully boot flag the camera you can replace the support files (ie ML folder) with whatever you chose.

Card bootable -> disk bootable
Camera bootable -> boot alternate device/boot order

to put it in desktop computer terms.

I wish i knew how to help you guys. I want to do the test runs, but im slightly worried about downloading Magic lantern, as i dont have the money to replace my camera. After one downloads the Magic lantern, does it leave any of the program on the cannon original firmware? So that if i change my card i can use the normal program?

Also, just especially thanks to 1% and A1ex .. i know you guys are working your butts off, for free, for a bunch of camera enthusiasts who arent giving you guys the credit you deserve. Great work guys.

Hello,

And thanx for this forum that got me into filming into RAW.
Unfortunately, I find the 6D very limited due to bitrate limitations and want to get rid of ML.

Has anyone tried to remove Magic Lantern from a Canon 6D?
I saw videos about the 5D mark III showing a simple way to remove bootflag (reupdate firmware on camera then turn a dial at success install screen), then simply format the card.

I can't find any post or video on the web showing this working on a 6D, so I'm a bit afraid to try.

Thanx you in advance if you have any info regarding to this  :)

Best Regards,

Baz

I didn't see that ^^
It worked perfectly, I ran fimrware update again from the menu, then waited the 30 seconds at the startup screen as written and the bootflag uninstalled itself automatically.
After that I formatted the card, and everything seems to work well.

Have a nice day :)

Hi all! First of all thanks for the ML for 6D, highly appreciated. Used stable rel in my 60D for ages now, cant live without it. Now finally I have it with 6D as well!

Question: is it known feature that when in liveview mode, the ML menu drops out back to liveview after few seconds if nothing is pressed? It's bit difficult to change silent picture options, as the options are only avail in liveview mode. In normal mode, the ML menu stays on as it should.

Keeping ML option does work on the build I use (15 March 2014).
But I have seen in some "custom" builds for testing purposes that the option of keeping ML was there in canon menu. But it didn't work. After formatting ML was gone...

So, or somewhere on the road, after march 15 of this year, this options is damaged or it is just your 30July build...
Maybe try a newer nightly build of August and see what happens ?

If you look at build #256 you will see 5th change: Fixed ML restoring after format, after FIO changes

On the latest august builds, I experienced something that never happened before on the 6D. If I take the SD card out and replace it with another without ML on it, the 6D just won't boot. It stays dead like there's no battery power left. I had to re-load the build on the second card to get the 6D to boot again.

Is that normal behavior?

Post by: Walter Schulz on August 28, 2014, 01:09:47 PM
It's normal if you use a card for ML and just removed ML directory and AUTOEXEC.BIN. The card is still bootable and this will lock up your cam.
Your fault because you're not following the uninstallation procedure. Format the card using a cardreader.

Thanks, not my fault actually I didn't want to uninstall, I just switched cards without realising the other one didn't have ML on it.  :o

If your second card is clear of ML, your camera should boot up with the normal canon functions. I'm not sure why it's not for you. I still have a July build, so I'm I'm not sure what could be going on in the latest builds. Did you try re-installing ML?

not my fault

Neither Windows nor OS X will create a bootable card by itself. You have to do it with a program (EOSboot for example) or it is done inside the cam by the ML installation routine.
So it has to be your fault.

Wait, there is another option: Do you believe in leprechauns, ghosts, demons from hell?

Maybe try a newer nightly build of August and see what happens ?

You are both correct. Apparently I got lucky getting the July.30 build that broke ML restore and didn't notice it since I downloaded (..and until I formatted my cards). Thanks for your input, Levas, Walter. :)

That's what I think. Previously I switched cards, the one with ML and the one without, and had no problem booting the camera. But somehow with the august builds, you need to have ML on your card or the camera won't boot.

I was lending the camera to a friend so I did switch the card and put the lighter card on it, and was surprised I had no response from the camera. I think I already switched cards before, without any problem booting the camera without ML.

I installed ML on several friends 5DIII with SD cards for a shoot, and removed my SD cards with ML from theirs after, and they had no problem using their cameras after, even if ML was not on any card they used, neither SD or CF.

I have the ML nightly from August 20th on my 6D card. I just switched to another card which has never touched my 6D and the camera starts normally with it (without any traces of ML of course).

Just to troubleshoot this: have you formatted the lighter card using a PC?
Title: Re: Magic Lantern for 6D | Dev kit released
Post by: Walter Schulz on August 29, 2014, 08:14:59 AM
Some technical background ...
3 things are needed to startup ML
- Camera with bootflag set
- Bootable card
- ML files on card
If any of this conditions is missing ML won't start.

(For the moment let's forget what's happening if SET is pressed during startup, okay?)
A cam with bootflag will look for a bootable card. If the card is not bootable, ML won't start and cam will operate pretty much like designed by Canon.
If however the card is bootable the camera will try to locate and load AUTOEXEC.BIN.
If Autoexec.bin is missing on a bootable card the cam will get stuck during startup.

And because there is no way for a card to become bootable by itself and because deleting Autoexec.bin and ML dir from a card *without* disabling boot option is *the* most common error which will cause stuck cams I simply don't believe that this card was clean.

And this one

Walter it's not nonsense. Something is wrong with the august builds. First time it happened to me. I will try desinstalling ML and reinstall again and see if the same thing happens.

It's not about ML not starting, it's about when I switched cards, and used one without ML, the camera didn't respond. It's ML problem based, nothing to do with Canon.

If you are using Windows: Download EOScard 1.40, insert card into reader and look for yourself.
This is what EOScard shows when a non-bootable card is read.

Yes OSX.

I'm wondering if the problem with the second card (obviously there never was a problem with main card) didn't come that it was used previously in a 5DIII as an ML card.

It could be the reason.

Anyone know of a fix or a way to set or change the default menu?

The most recent nightly build for the 6D is merely a week old (magiclantern-Nightly.2014Sep01.6D113.zip).  You've previously made a similarly perplexing post (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=3904.msg126878#msg126878), which suggests you are mistaken about where to download nightly builds.  As always, you should go here: http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/

"Any known release date or release interval?"

It only gets updated if something in the code is changed/improved. So a release date can't be predicted.

When image reviewing an dual_iso image on the 5D3, it was a simple interlaced preview.  On the 6D, it seems to be switching between some dark/bright preview, but not actually changing the brightness of the image, simply shifting the image pixels.

I've been through the ML menus a few times now, am I missing something simple, or is this something specific to the 6D?

Looks like Canon's preview, even when zoomed out, is interlaced (which confuses the algorithm, so it thinks you are in zoom mode).

How does the preview look like, for the same image, if you turn off dual iso? (image captured with dual iso, but previewed without it)

It actually does this for every three steps.  That is, image interlaced at normal view, no interlacing lines for the first 3 zoom steps, interlaced the next 3 zoom steps, non-interlaced next 3 steps.

I'm currently running the March 23rd build, it does all that I need it to do (DualISO, Intervalometer, focus stacking, exposure sim, overlay, ETTR) has there been any major changes that would prompt an upgrade, or should I just stick with what works?


Also, I experience the same interlace "issue" with DualISO that is mentioned above. I had just assumed that was how it was supposed to look before you post-processed it cr2hdr.  The lines show up in Lightroom as well, so I thought nothing of it.

Hey guys,

I'm new to this forum and have a query that I'd appreciate some help with.
I've attached a framegrab from a 6D RAW clip that has what seem like some large noise spots. Could this be because of the resolution I am recording at? I had it on 1920, but have now changed it to 1536, which I have seen in places to be the best option.
I used raw2dng to convert the files.

Looks like you got some hot pixels over there, with higher iso's they can come up:
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=12987.msg125592#msg125592

You can let your camera (re)map the hot pixels so it automatically doesn't use these hot pixels to process the image.
Taking the lens of the camera and place the body cap on it. Go into the Canon menu and choose sensor cleaning, clean manually, wait a few minutes and turn your camera off.
Put the lens back on and test if those pixels are still there.

Depends on what you find acceptable for noise  :P
I did the body cap/bad pixel remapping thing once, and the hot/bad pixels never came back that worse.
Luckily with raw video, you can also try to remove the hot/bad pixels in post proces.
Don't know what software you use for you dng's, but most of them have options to remove hot/bad pixels.

Title: Canon 6D Resolution File Sizes and Cards
Post by: orfeugars on September 16, 2014, 04:44:42 PM
Hi guys,

I am really sorry for this post as it contains basic information. Unfortunately I could not find the answer in this forum since there has been a recently update.

I haven't got ML installed yet but am eager to get it done as soon as possible. However, I would love to know about resolution, file sizes and appropriate cards. Hope you can help:

1) What is the maximum resolution at continuous recording the ML RAW can handle? Can I record 1080p RAW?

2) I have never used RAW so before buying appropriate cards, could you please let me know what is the average size in GB per minute for 1080p?

3) Somewhere I read that the 6D can only handle up to 45MB/S writing speeds. Is this correct? Does it mean, there is no point getting a faster card for this application? Would 45MB/S be enough to handle 1080p RAW? Any suggestion of a reliable card that could handle professional paid work?

4) I've heard a lot about dual ISO but don't understand how it works. Could anybody point me out where I can read more about it?

Again sorry if the questions above offend your intelligence. I just need some help and thought this would be the best place to ask for.

Thanks in anticipation.

Hey @dmilligan, thanks for your help.
I've read the threads and so far I gather that there is still no continuous raw recording on the 6D. Is this right? The closest to continuous is at 720p. I installed ML and tried to shoot raw but only at 720p I could see a possibility. Please correct me if I am wrong and perhaps share the knowledge on how I can get better performance. By the way, I am using Transcend 600x (90MB/S).

Is the 6D capable of shooting at 60fps in raw? Ive been offered to buy it at a reasonable price.  I would be happy even if it could shoot a few seconds at 60fps.  I understand that it takes SD cards so will be limited. I already own the 5Dii so only want it for the 60fps raw option. Any advice would be great.
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: Levas on September 23, 2014, 05:05:41 PM
The 6d is capable of doing 60fps raw video, although only for a few seconds...

Are you aware that the 50/60fps mode gives an image that needs to be stretched vertical in post ?

I use sometimes 50p mode on 6d, put aspect ratio to 1:2,39 and vertical resolution to 1728.
This results in a video resolution of 1728 x 446 pixels (to be stretched in post to 1728 x 720 pixels (factor 1,62))
This way I can record about 8 seconds of raw video in 50p on the 6d (about 425 dng frames).

The 6d has about 250MegaByte buffermemory and can write 40MegaByte/s to the sd card.
1728 x 446 x 14bit x 60fps / 8bit / 1000000 = 81MegaByte per second.
The camera can write 40MegaByte/s to the memory card, so 81 - 40 = 41 is buffered every second.
6d has a buffer of 250MB, 250 / 41 = 6 seconds recording time in 60 fps  for 1728 x 446 (to be stretched in post to 1728 x 720 pixels (factor 1,62))

Hey @levas

Hello,

first thank you for this great software !

I'm sorry but i have just a question : I don't know how to uninstall MagicLantern. I know i may not be the first one to ask that (i'm french and my english is not good enough to read all the forum to find the solution, i've seen something close on the previous page but it's not exactly the same uninstalling problem)

On the first page it's written "1) Run Firmware Update from your ML card. 2) Follow the instructions."

If i go to the "Firmware ver. 1.1.3" menu, it just say that a memory card with firmware is necessary for update, nothing else.

I have the "Built on 2014-05-01" version of ML, maybe it's not the same process ?

Thank you for your answer :)

Hi ! like the one above, thanks for the program and all, i am using it at 1% of its full potential, and it is already realy helpful.
I have one question though, my external mike is constantly making some hissing noise, i understood it was from the 6D Audio Gain Controler, so i am trying to disable it, but cant find the option anywher. Looked on the wiki, couldnt understand also.

Is that because it wasnt enabled on the 6D nightly build ?

Post by: Levas on September 24, 2014, 10:10:58 AM
@virtualtour

With raw video, the SD card writing speed is the bottleneck for 6d (and all other cams with SD).
If your card is fast enough, you get about 40MB/s max. (not enough for 1920 x 1080 x 24fps, that needs 87MB/s writing speed.)
1280 x 720 x 24fps continuous is possible on the 6d, this needs 39MB/s writing speed.

So if you want a camera for raw video, better look out for one which uses compact flash cards(have faster writing speeds than SD), like the 5DII and 5DIII and 7D.
(or get a blackmagic pocket  8) :P )

You can use the 6d for short raw videoclips, 1792 x 750 x 25fps gives about 14 seconds recording time. Easy to scale to 1920 x 800 resolution  :D.

In the older builds for 6d, there where audio controls like analog gain and digital gain.
I believe they disappeared from the ML menu after I start using the the MLV_sound module.
With the MLV_sound module enabled, you can control audio from the standard Canon Audio menu, Canon menu gives also manual control for audio on the 6d.
Maybe you can fix it in Canon Audio menu  :-\

@ Levas : i think i understand now what is my problem. I probably did a mistake when i installed ML, i didn't paste the "ML-6D113.FIR" file on my memory card. Maybe i should. So probably I can't run the update if i don't have this file on the card. The problem is, from my computer (mac) i can't write anything on the card, i can only read it. So i can't copy/paste the "ML-6D113.FIR" file to repair my mistake... is there a solution for that ? format everything from the camera (even ML) and restart the procedure ? format from my mac (i can't actually, the "format" button is in grey, so i don't know how) ?

Use an external cardreader. I recommend Kingston FCR-HS3.

@ walter_schulz : i already have a cardreader on my macbook, but i'm not allowed to write on the card when it's plugged, just read. And more surprising, i can't even format it from disk utility. Maybe a software can pass through this restriction or allow me to write on the card ?

Anyway, do you think the problem is what i think : i don't have the "ML-6D113.FIR" file on the card ?

Sorry, not clear what you're using: Are you trying to use your MacBooks internal cardreader or an external device? If you search the web you will find faulty internal cardreaders a common cause for this error. Therefore I recommended an external reader.
And just to be sure: You checked the card's write-protection switch?

@levas I would love a BMPCC but the crop factor and getting new lenses would destroy my financial life haha (I shoot mainly with the 16-28mm tokina for real estate)  if I get another camera it would be between the 5D3 or the BMCC with the EF mount, but I think if I shoot 1080p raw i don't know if my macbook pro retina would handle it lol (15 inch high end) its never ending.

Thanks for the information though, I have seen some raw 6D footage for over 30-40 seconds, I'm assuming those are shot in lower resolution and then upscaled when uploaded on youtube? I'm going to test the raw video out soon for personal things and if the post processing is easy enough for me, I might incorporate it into work.  And definitely getting the VAF-6D.  quite a few short comings with this camera, but for the price its unreal and completely forgivable

Thanks gain @levas!!

@ Walter_schulz : sorry if i was not clear. Yes, i was using my macbook internal cardreader and it didn't work, i couldn't write on the card, just read it. After looking on internet to find a solution, i tried several times to plug the card in my mb cardreader as explained (strange solution, but anyway...), and it finally worked ! so i could put the firmware file on the card, and now it's all ok. ML is uninstalled, after following the simple procedure explained on the first page.

Macbook internal cardreader is just hazardous.

Thank you for your help !

Hey guys, Ive been playing around with ML on my 6D for a while now. Been using it on my 550D with no problems for a while.

I recently invested in a very expensive 280mb/s Sandisk card only to discover that the 6D has been throttled to a limit of 38mb/s.. WTF??? Why did Canon do this? such douchebags! anyways.. so I have some thoughts to share and observations and maybe an idea..

First, the idea. Can RAW recording not be helped by writing something that pre allocates like 4GB of space on the card, some virtual memory thingy? at the moment, I still need to find where to get decent info and not having to dig for hours throughout the forums but the exact specs to get the most out of RAW video recording. my setup only allows me to shoot at around 1280 for 12s then it starts dropping frames but im sure others have had more success.

Then some bugs, I cant seem to stay in ML menu mode for longer than 8s before it auto closes. The menu will only stay open on my screen for a  max of around 8s, then I have to press the thrash can and quicky do what i need to do before it closes. im currently on Nightly.2014Sep27.6D113 and all the other previous builds have done the same.. If I set my camera to non movie mode,then I can stay in ML forever but as soon as I switch on movie mode, no way jose.. Also when it does jump out of the menu, when I do go back, the currently selected item is not clickable at all, I have to move the cursor off and then back onto the item to get a response..

Then I have no audio options in my audio section of ML for my 6D, for my 550D I have loads of options but nothing on my 6D

Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: Levas on October 01, 2014, 08:39:35 PM
SD card writing speed is limited around 40MB/s...jup sucks for continuous raw recording, but has been known for a long time:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AgQ2MOkAZTFHdFFIcFp1d0R5TzVPTVJXOEVyUndteGc#gid=5

If you use a framerate of 24 or 25 FPS, you can record raw continuous in 1280x720. (30fps needs lower resolution for continuous recording.)

The menu closing in video mode is a bug known, but probably hard to fix. (Just keep pushing buttons while you're in the menu  :P )

The audio options are indeed gone (they are still available in very old builds for 6d), I don't know the exact reason, but my guess is that they are obsolete for the 6d, since you can manual control audio in Canon menu.
So for audio controls, just use the menu options Canon gave you  :D

If you want longer recording times, you can choose other aspect ratio's in the raw video menu, you can use 1:2,39 instead of 16:9 aspect ratio, should help a lot (needs less bandwidth)

yeah I had many sleepless nights trying to justify keeping the 6D but between not getting full HD raw and having to buy the moire filter.... I just exchanged it just before the return deadline for a 5D3 I think I would've kept the 6D and bought the anti aliasing filter if it wasn't for the fact that I shot stills as well and I would've had to put in and take out the filter outdoors and in bad weather sometimes.  Too bad the Sd card only goes up to 40mb/s

Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: Levas on October 18, 2014, 02:54:23 PM
I never used bit rate option in ML. I don't think it's available on the the 6d for the following reason:

The 6d has already different bitrate options in Canon video menu.
You can choose between IPB recording (I think that's about 40Mbit/s) and ALL-I recording (90Mbit/s).
90Mbit/s ALL-I is as good as H.264 compression can be.

This is false. The stuff in Tragic Lantern is not in Magic Lantern for a good reason. You should not use Tragic Lantern.

And @jackmoro, you should not suggest that people should use it.

You have to make the card bootable. You can either just run the ML installer fir again on this card or use the "EOSCard" or "macboot" programs on a computer to do this.

There is  such item in the installation instruction:

But my 6D has firmware 1.1.4

The 1st quastion : Can I use current version of ML with 1.4.4, or I have to downgrade firmware to 1.1.3 ?
The 2nd quastion: Is there (in the 1.1.3 (http://pel.hu/down/eos6d-v113-win.zip)) different languages, or it is English version only?

For all the newcomers who read this forum and hesitate, I would like to give feedback on my very recent experience of installing Magic Lantern on my 6D. In a nutshell: fear not, it works. The beauty of it, which I did not expect, is that it is not destructive. Canon firmware is still there for you to use if you wish to.

I simply followed instructions and steps I took were:
1) downgrade to firmware version 1.1.3 (zero visible difference with 1.1.4)
2) Not sure if the 32GB size limit for the SD card still applies but for the sake of it, I used a 32GB SD card for first install of the latest night build (08 October). The install guide is easy to find on this website so do your homework first.
3) If you usually use a larger SD card, as I do, repeat the steps for the card preparation (I just followed the install guide even though it refers to the outdated stable build).
4) Insert card, restart camera, press the trash can button.
5) Enjoy.

There are tons of new features and things to try, so go ahead. And don't forget you can set the GPS to switch off automatically when you switch off the camera.

YMMV, I am not liable for camera bricking, kittens killing and any  other unfortunate event, but this is how it went for me.

"2) Not sure if the 32GB size limit for the SD card still applies but for the sake of it, I used a 32GB SD card for first install of the latest night build (08 October)."

I can confirm that 64GB card size can be used with firmware 1.1.3 and magic lantern nightly builds, I'm using one for over a year now in the 6d  :)

Just got my 6D and cannot for the life of me successfully downgrade from 1.1.4 to 1.1.3. I've tried downgrading from the SD card as well as going through EOS Utility and neither seem to be working for me. When I try to use the process via the SD card the screen just goes black and I get the red blinking light over and over. When I use EOS Utility I instantly get a "connect was lost" notification.

I finally decided to install ML on my Canon EOS 6D... and I really have to say that I wasted a lot of time without having it installed.

Thank you very much for the great job... I love ML.

Hi guys

I have a what I feel is going to be a rookie problem, let me explain.

I had ML installed on my 6D for a while, worked perfectly and the results were great form RAW. I used a 64GB SanDisk Extreme card. I recently did a shoot on a C100, and I used my memory card, I formatted it in my computer to make sure there were no magic lantern files on the card, then did the shoot with no problems. After that, I formatted the card on my computer again, and put it in my 6D only to have it not turn on. I took the memory card out and tried a different battery, and the camera turned on. After breathing a sigh of relief I formatted the card in camera, then put the ML files back on, and tried to make the card bootable to which I get an error saying it has failed.

Does anyone know a fix for this? I have updated to OSX Yosemite which I feel may be a contributor to the problem.

Any feedback is much appreciated!

Cheers

I've just installed installed Magic Lantern on my 6D. When I record video. It stops after 4.0 seconds automatically. I've set the movie resolution to 1280x720. if I put in full HD it records for 7 seconds. Am I missing any steps or setting that I need to change.

Hi all :)
Thank you for all the support and effort that is being provided here.
I've recently started using Magic Lantern on my 6D and my video stops recording after 4 seconds every time.
There's a blue bar - which fills up from left to right - on the lower portion of my screen. The video stops recording when this bar fills up.
I've tried changing the resolution and am on a Sandisk Extreme class 10 SD card (tried changing to other class 10, fast SD cards) but this doesnt seem to many any difference.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated :)

Could someone update the googledocs file on RAW capabilities of 6D on this thread:
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=6215.0

Can't find anywhere info on how long clips it can record and in what resolution.
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: Levas on November 01, 2014, 07:42:11 PM
I can't update it, doesn't work...
But the raw capabilities depend on the writing speed of the SD card unit in the camera. (for the 6d about 40MB/s max, also on the spreadsheet)
The 650d also has a SD card unit that can write about 40MB/s max and shows resolution numbers for continuous recording, same goes for the 6d.
So continuous is 1280 x 720 x 24/25 fps
The 6d has a memory buffer of 250MB.
I often shoot in 2:39 aspect ratio instead of 16:9.
This way I can shoot 17 seconds of video in 1728 x 724 x 25fps (upscaling it in post to 1920 x 800 resolution)
Or 14 seconds of 1792 x 750 x 25fps (upscaling it in post to 1920 x 800 resolution)

Levas: Why doesn't it work?  Can Alex update it for you?

Anyway I'm getting bored with my 600D. I can get a 6D or a 5D MK II either one for about 900 bucks.

I'm leaning towards a 6D because I shoot a LOT in low light and I could do more with the higher ISOs. What's giving me pause is the lack of a CF slot and the 40mb limit.

So according to your chart Levas the 6D can basically handle just above 720p for continuous shooting... but even with the 5D2 you can't really get 1080p unless you're in crop mode. So should I just ignore the whole Compact Flash thing and go for the 6D? Or is there another reason I would want to get the 5D2?
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: Levas on November 03, 2014, 11:45:50 AM
Depends on the type of video you are planning to shoot with it.

I use it to record short clips of my kids and on a day out with the family, that type of stuff.
For this it works really good, and I can easily switch to photo mode (so I only have to carry one device for photo and video)
I often use 1728 x 724 x 25fps which gives 17 seconds of recording time per clip (after that it needs to write the full buffer (250mb) to the SD card, which also takes about 6 seconds writing time (250mb/40mb/s=6 seconds).
So you got a blackout period of 6 seconds after each clip because of writing down the buffer to the memory card.
Continuous recording resolution on the 6D is 1280 x 720 x 24/25fps. which still is not bad, but once you are used to the higher resolutions, 1280 x 720 sucks... :P

If you are planning to shoot commercials, weddings, short films etc.
You should definately go for the 5d MK II, only because of the compact flash, which gives you better continuous recording resolution.
Although the 5d can not handle exFat formatted cards, I don't know how it behaves after the 4GB file limit while recording (does it write a second video file without missing a single frame ??)

EDIT: If you're also going to use it a lot for photography, then go for the 6d. (Newer sensor, less read noise, no pattern noise, better dynamic range etc.)

Hello

I am about to upgrade to a FF but I am vacillating between Canon and Nikon. I like the recently released D750 but I prefer the Canon 135mm F2 lens to the Nikon's equivalent. If I go for Canon, I have to stick to the 6D since I cannot afford 5DMKIII at the moment. Based on the results from lensrentals.com the 6D AF is as inaccurate as the 5DMKII. I don't want to mount a fabulous lens on a mediocre camera and end up with soft photos. Can you please tell me about assists that I can get from ML? I just shoot still, no video.

Things that I really like to know are as follows:
Does the permanent DFP work via view finder?
Is focus peaking accurate for checking the focus after taking the shot?
How long does ETTR take to meter before taking the shot?  I am interested in using Press Set option
Are ETTR and RAW based zebra accurate?
Is the focus pattern for manual focus usable via viewfinder? If yes, is it more accurate than the in-camera built confirmation?

If I get the D750, I can only afford a 85mm1.8g for my portraits but if I get the 6D, I can get this magical 135mm f2. So, I would really appreciate it if you could share your experience with me on ML.
Thanks

Currently using the RAW MLV for a couple of shoots. Will keep updated on any and all bugs I find! So far: I've been keeping a cropped resolution and it seems very stable with only one shot unaccounted for on my memory card. When I first used ML on the 6d I had a couple issues with footage being gone, but so far this has been the only occurrence. I did find that attempting playback immediately following the shot, forcing the camera to index the images and acknowledge them, seems to eliminate the issue, but it would be nice to feel confidence if I'm in a pinch. I have some better cards on their way that will hopefully allow me to reach a stable full resolution (cropped only to fit 2:35/2:50, it's still cinematic!) I wish it were possible to utilize the full frame in RAW, understanding the limitations of the write speed of the camera.

Maybe a stupid question and I fixed it at one point, but accidentally undid it. Is there any way to keep the cropped framing that I choose during record mode in MLV RAW? I have no issues with the regular RAW record function, but it always shows the cropped visual until I begin to record, then it shows the full frame.

A bit frustrating when, even trying my hardest, some things still escape my frame.

I had been happily using ML on my 6D for over a year, and then I sent the camera to Canon repair to fix it (wouldn't wake up?), and they upgraded my firmware to 1.1.4 while it was in the shop.

I've downgraded to 1.1.3, installed the last build I was using (24-08-2013) and then updated firmware in the camera again with 1.1.3, but still no ML.  Low-level formatted card in camera again.   Copied the latest build onto card (magiclantern-Nightly.2014Oct08.6D113) and made card bootable with Macboot succesfully, still no luck.  Made sure to include all files, and had autoexec.bin file in root directory of card

I see there is a small Unix file in the latest build (ML-6D113.FIR), but I am scared to try to use it to update my firmware in the camera, as it is only 39Kb, and all the other Canon firmware updates are around 20Megs.  I had understood that a problem while updating firmware could cripple your camera.

Is this small Unix file (ML-6D113.FIR) actually what I need to get ML up and running again, by selecting upgrade firmware in the camera again, using this file?  Does it just make your card bootable or something?

I really miss having ML, and would appreciate any help in figuring out what I need to do to get it back!

The FIR file is needed to run the installation process.

Hi, i've been running ML on my 6D for a few day's now... Love it!

But here are my list of issues with the software.
1. Menu time out.  If I select a feature through the menu I have aprox 2 to 4 seconds before it kicks me back to the previous menu. It's very annoying but it doesn't make the software unusable... but still annoying.

2. Raw cannot write to my SD card fast enough. I have a Sandisk Extreme Pro 95 MB/s 64 GB card. And I can't shoot raw at any  freindly resolution for more then a second above 1280 x 720 before it drops frames and fails. 1280 and below works only a few seconds longer.

3. Shooting a slower FPS works but... If I shoot a slower FPS sometimes this happens , or if I turn on FPS ramping it will also happen. FPS ramping does not seem to work on my 6D.

4. Focus peaking works but... It seems to get confused by high contrast areas and if something is in focus. Also, it would be nice if the focus peaking dots were a single color like green (the Black Magic Camera uses green monochrome), not the current rainbow dots.

Thank you everyone who's worked on Magic Lantern, I do appreciate this software that will help me with my photo's and video.

point 1: menu time out is a well known problem, but nobody knows how to fix it...so keep pushing buttons while you're in the menu  :P
Point 2: Are you using 30fps NTSC ? Try fps override to 25fps or 24fps. Can you see the writing speed to the card while you are filming.
I get about 40MB/s with a Sandisk Extreme Pro 95 MB/s 64 GB card which is enough to do continuous 1280x720x25fps.
Point 3:fps override doesn't work on all available speed options, so maybe try 1 fps higher or lower  :-\
Point 4: I don't use focus peaking, but I thought you could set it to different colors somewhere in the menu.

Thanks for the reply - just to clarify - the 39Kb file 'ML-6D113.FIR' is a patch/update for the 1.1.3 firmware, and then I'm magic?

I just couldn't wrap my mind around updating with such a small file, since all the other firmware's have been around 20 megs.
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: dmilligan on November 18, 2014, 09:08:46 PM
The ML .FIR file does not actually contain any "firmware". It is sort of like a "vector" that we insert our "malicious" payload into to get the camera to execute it. Our payload is simply a little bit of code that sets the camera's bootflag and a few other technical things. Once we have the camera's bootflag set, the camera will execute "autoexec.bin" on any bootable cards it finds. The autoexec.bin actually contains ML's executable code, and this code runs on top of Canon firmware (like an exe on your computer) it does not replace it.

Want to try ML again i had it before on my old 550D (i think it was).
Used it on my 7D for a couple of days and on my 6D.
Main problem is i normally format my cards in my camera, this because i had a problem once with a snacks card and I talked to the guys at the Scandisk booth at Photokina back in 2012 and they told me better to reformat your card then to delete stuff.
But that is why i never use ML anymore however i love the extra's even donated a couple of times.
Now i would like to test, too bad i really have no idea about programming.
Sorry!
But i will give it a try hope there is ever coming a ML for the 6D like for the 700D so you don't need to have it on the SD card all the time..
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: Walter Schulz on November 25, 2014, 08:17:52 PM
I have no idea what you are talking about.
First: If ML is running on the card the default option to format the card is keeping ML on it.
Second: There is an ML nightly build for 6D.

Please explain what your problem actually is.

PicoC? It should be TCC which needs some work to get implemented correctly. PicoC needs to be ported to TCC. It's on the To-Do-List. For more info and a proof of concept have a look here:

http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=4877.msg106873#msg106873

As you didn't gave much infos about what exactly you wanna achieve with your script/module it may be also useful for other devices. Implementing your idea with TCC would be very welcome otherwise try as a module by comparing how other modules have been realized in source code.

Post by: redlyon on November 29, 2014, 03:34:49 PM
Mhhh, sounds interesting the content of the page that you have reported to me.
I want to get the ability to record video using a hdmi recorder with hard disk.
So I would use the HDMI output of the camera to record video during the events in my city. But I need to exceed the limit of 30 minutes.

I turned off the power saving options of the camera.

I noticed that to keep active the hdmi output, just press the AF-ON button. The video will not be affected because the whole scene will always be in focus.

So what I need is that the software push the button af-on every few minutes to keep always on the hdmi output.
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: dmilligan on November 29, 2014, 04:55:21 PM
@nikfreak,
Does that trick work to surpass the 30 minute limit though? IDK if anyone has even tested that. Even if you disable power save manually from the Canon menu, the camera will still exit LV after 30mins. I think that PR is mostly just a connivence thing so that users don't have to remember to turn off power save in the Canon menu manually.

So what I need is that the software push the button af-on every few minutes to keep always on the hdmi output.
That won't work. We can emulate button presses from software, but they don't seem to reset the auto-power-off timers like real physical button presses do (and last time I checked, software cannot physically press buttons :P). We need to find a way to reset those timers, or disable them completely (this requires reverse engineering). I think the main reason this hasn't been accomplished is because it takes 30 mins to reproduce the situtation, and no devs have the endless hours it would require to be just sitting there waiting on the camera to figure this one out.

Hi everyone, could anyone please help me clarifay if an external monitor plus magic lantern will definitely works? i tried to search on the forum, but i didn't find anything that would help me clarify this question:

External monitoring while recording RAW on the 6D it is possible?

If yes, there is a monitor specific or anything could do the trick?

Are there any known settings combinations with an external monitor that could brick my camera?

What port would be more safe/reliable to use: HDMI or the A/V out?

Are there any known issues of external monitoring on the 6D?

I am planning to buy a 4 meter camera jib with a pan and tilt head, as you can imagine. it would be quite challenging shooting without a monitor i think! :)

ML calls functions in the Canon firmware by hardcoded addresses. These addresses can be different in different Canon firmware versions.

A few bugs i think i have noticed in the nightly build version i am running on my 6D: magiclantern-Nightly.2014Aug20.6D113

I just noticed this two things:

When recording using MLV instead of RAW even trough the canon menu the fps 24 in NTSC format, it records at 30 fps.

When fiddling with the FPS overrride and try to set 24 or 23.987 the view from the liveview it's absolutely fucked up (not the overlay, but the image from the sensor) in terms of fucked up i mean: Green cast, dark lines dividing the picture in half pixels everywhere part of the image in black and white and so on.

Curios thing.. it did that once, a few moment ago. i tried now and it did not do anything

I installed Magic Lantern successfully with 64 GB Sandisk card. 1) I don´t seem to find the "Audio" menu? 2) Supposedly there´s a function that enables the camera to restart after 30 min/4GB limit ? I don´t see that feature anywhere in the menu? 3) I tried to let the camera run for over 30 minutes, and after 30 minutes, the camera stops automatically. Then the camera cannot access the memory card, and the camera asks to format the memory card. After formatting, the camera will not start for several minutes, which made me think I busted the camera! Finally it restarts, but  Magic Lantern is now no longer functioning. I try to update the card with the same Magic Lantern files on the card, but now the camera refuses to update...

I'd also like to see a 1.1.6 fw ML update, but I won't do it either :-p ... searching for changed stubs is probably one of the most stupid tasks, and then you have to check if Canon didn't change something under the hood.

Unless there are really killer features, I doubt it that it's "worth it". The multi-point af center pt fix is important, but it doubt any software upgrade can make the 6d better at it as the outer points are non-cross and simply give inaccurate information to the fw. Or did any 1.1.6 user notice a real improvement?

Hi I installed ML on 6D and noticed a lot of hot pixels. About 40 to 60. Got so annoying they were in all my images. I tried everything to prevent this from happening. Eventually i uninstalled ML and the Canon firmware handles it where i might only see one or two now. So obviously ML doesn't handle the hot pixels. Is there anyone out there working on a nightly build that can comment or is interested in resolving this issue.
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: walter_schulz on January 09, 2015, 08:10:04 AM
If you press SET during startup ML won't load. You can try to reproduce those effects. You may try to run "Manual Sensor Cleaning" and see what happens after.
You may also provide some samples.
Using search functions before posting may be another option.
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: dmilligan on January 09, 2015, 01:34:51 PM
Please do what Walter says, but I thought I might add a few things:

What are you doing/comparing? raw video? h.264? raw stills? jpeg stills? ML silent pictures?

What are your exposure parameters? Longer exposures and higher ISOs will cause more hot pixels, so you need to compare ML/no-ML on the same scene with the same exposure settings. If you were out shooting in low light, came back and noticed the hot pixels, uninstalled ML, and then took some test shots in brighter light, the difference in hot pixels is much more likely due to the difference in exposure (shutter and ISO), and ML being uninstalled was just a coincidence.

What is your post processing workflow? Most decent raw editors automatically remove hot pixels.

If you're talking about regular stills, it's very unlikely that ML has anything to do with it, as ML does not normally interfere in anyway with the Canon picture taking process, and most of the processing happens in hardware.

If you're talking about raw video, then this is to be expected. ML does no post processing on the raw video feed, so you end up with exactly what the sensor captured, while Canon does process out hot pixels when you record h264.
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: sartajr on January 10, 2015, 09:57:31 AM
Thanks for your answer.
I am taking stills (RAW). Long exposures of about 15 to 30 secs, low ISO. I have been taking those, and a few thousand of them, pictures for a while now, and only had a few hot pixels here and there. Until i installed ML and then did pretty much the same photos, and there are so many Hot pixels it becomes very obvious. Then i removed ML and they are gone. Even though i am still shooting same photos.
Yup i know about post workflow looking for Hot pixels and fixing them, but it adds much more to my workflow when i have enough to do already.
I consider myself able to determine logical workflow and logical deduction and simulation. There is something up with the hot pixels not being remapped as it is in Canon Firmware.
If any of you know the technical reasoning behind this issue, it would be great to consider a solution.
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: Walter Schulz on January 10, 2015, 10:11:53 AM
Sorry but if you are aware of logical workflow/deduction you should also know the procedures for debugging. This is not a known issue for ML. So we have to follow your workflow to see what went wrong (reproducing the error) or analyze samples. Both would be best.
As written before you can switch from ML to plain Canon just by pressing SET button at startup.

Hi everybody, I feel exhausted after reading this entire thread and the TL threads about the 6D.

To the devs a big thank you. I started with the 6D in November where I learned about ML shortly afterward. After installing (which BTW is very easy and straightforward especially if you bother to read the first post of this thread) I was a bit overwhelmed by the feature set but I must say that if I use the search function and review them one at a time they become much clearer.

After being disappointed in the constraints of raw video in the 6D I decided to see how it be in a 50D. Well I think my answer is to use both. 6D in 720 and 50D in 1080 cropped sensor. Some day if I get serious about making movies I will get a 5D mark whatever is current but I am making safety and instructional videos so image quality will be fine even if shot in h.264.

Walter, I love your humor and hope to not ever become the butt of one of your replies. I have been on a lot of forums and never have I seen the same question on every page of a thread like I have here.

Post by: Levas on January 11, 2015, 12:31:09 AM
Correction, only one person says he got 40+ seconds with 1792 resolution  8)
I doubt that  ;)
Got a 6d for more then a year and two fast Sandisks cards...never had more then 14 seconds of 1792x 750 resolution or 17 seconds of 1728 x 724 resolution...
That  is 25 fps MLV's with audio enabled.
2.39 aspect ratio is our lifesaver  :P

You can calculate the whole thing:
Your precious 6d SD card slot can write about 40MB/s max and the buffer is about 255MB.
1792 x 750 x 25FPS x 14bit /8 (Bits to bytes)  /1.000.000(bytes to Megabytes) = 59 MB/second... So if your SD can write out 40MB/s your buffer fills up with 19MB/s
255MB buffer / 19MB = 13 seconds of video -> boom buffer full  :o
It's called physics  :D

BTW
To enable the 255MB buffer you must activate in the ML raw menu -> the SRM memory hack/buffer option

As a 6D user, at the moment i can record RAW video at 1792 x 750 x 23.987FPS x 14bit to a maximum of 20 sec. than it skips frame.. But my guess is that it has to do that maybe i was shooting particularl dark subjects?

Walter its ok no apology necessary. I appreciate feedback here. So my issue is quite simple. The ML firmware does not suppress or workaround the hot pixels that are generated by 15 sec or more exposures, and the same exposures, when i boot up with Set pressed, still renders hot pixels. After completely removing ML, and installing a new Canon firmware, the hot pixels (more than 30) are not appearing under identical or near identical conditions. So to me it appears that i am following basic logical workflow. although I'm not debugging the code. Any body else have a workaround or can get into the code? I can post photos with Hot pixels, but that looks like a photo with .....hot pixels. Im not sure if that will be of any help in deducing the problem.

You need this:  Sandisk Extreme Pro 64 GB 95 MB/s http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007NDL54C/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007NDL54C/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER)

Correction, only one person says he got 40+ seconds with 1792 resolution  8)
I doubt that  ;)
Got a 6d for more then a year and two fast Sandisks cards...never had more then 14 seconds of 1792x 750 resolution or 17 seconds of 1728 x 724 resolution...
That  is 25 fps MLV's with audio enabled.
2.39 aspect ratio is our lifesaver  :P

You can calculate the whole thing:
Your precious 6d SD card slot can write about 40MB/s max and the buffer is about 255MB.
1792 x 750 x 25FPS x 14bit /8 (Bits to bytes)  /1.000.000(bytes to Megabytes) = 59 MB/second... So if your SD can write out 40MB/s your buffer fills up with 19MB/s
255MB buffer / 19MB = 13 seconds of video -> boom buffer full  :o
It's called physics  :D

You're Physics are either wrong or Magic Lantern isn't telling us everything.  I use a Sandisk Extreme Pro 64 GB 95 MB/s.  It doubled the recording time compared to my Sandisk 45 MB/s Card.  Also note,  I disable Audio.  The Video shows the resolution so what is there to lie about.

My samsung sdhc has same speed as sandisk extreme pro (i tested both in cardreader and in ML) but i cant get your results. What kind of dark magic do you use, and how much virgins blood do you sacrifice to earn such raw speed?  ;)

BTW
To enable the 255MB buffer you must activate in the ML raw menu -> the SRM memory hack/buffer option




Yes, i made this calculations too, but cant get even 13 secs. I try all from this thread and also activate hack in ml menu, but still it shows 155mb of buffer and only 7 secs of raw. I can shoot only 24 fps 720p continuously. And i shoot without audio. :'(

You're Physics are either wrong or Magic Lantern isn't telling us everything.
Also I think Magic Lantern Chooses not to do 8, 10, 12 bit RAW and i think it should be an option.  It's silly and i do not believe their reasoning behind it.
This attitude really ticks me off and I take direct offense to it. ML is an open community and all of the code is completely open. It is an affront to this community and to its members to say stuff like this. We are all Magic Lantern and you are calling us liars. Comments and attitude like this have no place here.

I use a Sandisk Extreme Pro 64 GB 95 MB/s.  It doubled the recording time compared to my Sandisk 45 MB/s Card.
Advertised manufacturer card speeds are for read speed not write speed. Your 45MB/s card likely has a much lower actual write speed, which is the reason you see so much improvement with the 95 MB/s card. Feel free to provide actual benchmark numbers to backup your baseless comments. If you still think ML is lying to you, feel free to inspect the benchmarking code and compile it yourself.

Sorry to offend you which was not my intent.  it was simply an opinion to which you clearly took wrong.   I'm not calling anyone liars,  If anything.  You guys are calling me one by somehow not believing my video was shot at 1792x762 which clearly shows the resolution if you watch the video.  Again, i'm saying What is there to lie about.  Why would i make this up?  I can post up the original uncompressed video so you can determine the resolution for yourself.

I said I doubt it, that you could record 40+ seconds in 1792x762 resolution with 24fps.
But I love to know your secret, seriously  :D, I like to shoot 40+ seconds in that resolution.

The problem however is that I'm rather sceptic about it, since no 6d user has ever reported such long recording times, and we know for fact how big the memory buffer is and what the writing speed of the 6d is. ::)

Maybe you can send us a screenshot or type over the settings you used (go to ML menu, and move to the menu/tab most right, shaped like a triangle.)
If you can post these settings, we can try the same settings on other 6d's.

No camera supported by ML has an UHS-II interface. None!
And if your card is a SanDisk: In UHS-I mode it will do about 46 MByte/s.
And Canon implemented a slow SD-card interface in 6D which will max out at about 41 MByte/s.

So: Next time do a better job preparing for a job!

Then, with me being completely new to this entire thing, what's the highest resolution I can shoot at in raw at this point?
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: walter_schulz on January 13, 2015, 04:49:03 PM
Do the math:

Required bandwidth = Vertical resolution(pixel) * horizontal resolution(pixel) * frame rate * 14 / 8

720p@25 will give
1280 * 720 * 25 * 14 / 8 =
-> 40320000 Byte/s
About 38.5 MByte/s
Overhead is always an issue. Don't expect to be stable going up to 40.
And use ExFAT file system for cards. FAT32 will not make you happy. Using ExFAT causes handling issues but it will not break your recording that easy.

EDIT: You can use higher resolution for non continuous recording. Just short clips until buffer is full.

http://www.mosaicengineering.com/products/vaf/6d.html (http://www.mosaicengineering.com/products/vaf/6d.html)

I recently picked up a 6D and bought the VAF-6D just this past week.  I hope to get a chance to try it out this weekend.  The videos online are quite impressive for the amount of moiré it removes.

I really like the 6D and hope the filter is the solution to the only real video ailment that the 6D has for my use.

Over the last 3 days, during some of my spare time, I've read through this forum from start to finish - just to get caught up on what's new.

ML was really easy to load onto the memory card (very simple and speedy process compared to the last time I added ML on a 6D that I had sometime ago).

Thanks to DEVs for time spent on the 6D ML build - much appreciated.  The 6D is a great camera - great size/weight for full frame, some of the best low noise images/HD video for current dslr's, and very sensitive low light focusing accuracy.  It's received a lot of negativity for a few short comings but if the short comings specific to the 6D aren't your bread and butter then it's a great dslr for the money (especially for a slightly used one).

If anyone is interested, I'll share my thoughts on the filter once I get a chance to try it out.

thx

I'm seriously panicking right now.

I followed the directions to install ML (got my canon 6D firmware to 1.1.3, formatted the SD card, put the ML firmware files on the SD card, ran the firmware update). It then said to "restart the camera" and I did.

It came back on, some messages flashed quickly (one about removing the boot flag, another about a missing file) and then the screen went black. No buttons worked.

After I did a battery pull, I was able to get the camera to restart, but when the screen comes on, it says something about 'the camera was not shut down cleanly' and a missing module.

------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT: After another battery pull, I fired it back on and went back into the menu to install the firmware update again. It seems to have been successful and I restarted the camera. But I guess I'm lost now as to how to access any of the ML features. The menu looks identical.

This was using this build: magiclantern-Nightly.2015Jan15.6D113.

Help, please?

Only the way on 6D to get rid off from moire turn it in video-only camera installing VAF. You will also lose the crop-mode in RAW with this module.

Hi everybody, I feel exhausted after reading this entire thread and the TL threads about the 6D.

To the devs a big thank you. I started with the 6D in November where I learned about ML shortly afterward. After installing (which BTW is very easy and straightforward especially if you bother to read the first post of this thread) I was a bit overwhelmed by the feature set but I must say that if I use the search function and review them one at a time they become much clearer.

After being disappointed in the constraints of raw video in the 6D I decided to see how it be in a 50D. Well I think my answer is to use both. 6D in 720 and 50D in 1080 cropped sensor. Some day if I get serious about making movies I will get a 5D mark whatever is current but I am making safety and instructional videos so image quality will be fine even if shot in h.264.

Walter, I love your humor and hope to not ever become the butt of one of your replies. I have been on a lot of forums and never have I seen the same question on every page of a thread like I have here.

RAW on 6D looks awesome. Check some movies posted in http://magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?board=19.0
TBH, this forum and movies posted there pushed me to shoot in RAW only.
Sadly ML development looks like freezed or dead now, probably most of them focused on Axiom now.

Hello there....

I just installed the ML software that I downloaded today in my 6D. It does wonders and I thank you very much for the work you've done (that Canon should have).
But I have a problem that I do not find the way to get around. It is that the menus don't hold open for more than five seconds, and the recording in RAW mode is also interrupted after five seconds.
Is that a common issue? Does anybody have a solution?
Is it a wrong installation? I've already desinstalled and reinstalled ML once without result.

Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: Walter Schulz on January 25, 2015, 07:28:58 PM
You don't give any information about the settings you used for RAW recording. Most such errors are caused by buffer overflow. SD-card interface is good for about 41 MByte/s only. If your card is slower than that it will cause lower rates. Bottlenecked by lowest number.

Live view issue is a known bug.

I read that one guy installed the ML on his 6D and now he cannot record any audio... =/

I had a canon 600D before and used ML and never had any problems. I really miss it!

Thanks!

@ duarted If you manage to downgrade your camera to 1.1.3 you can install ML. Sound issues has nothing to do with ML, the guy probably messed with some options. Happen often.

I'm currently learning about ML with my 6D.
I can compile and do my modifications just fine and now, moving on to trying to dump the 1.1.6 firmware.

From what I've gathered so far, making a FIR file is not possible since source is not provided for the tools (according to this thread (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=1266.0) - unless this info is outdated)
Another thread mentions this same process for the 5D and firmware 1.2.3 here (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9827.0). Someone managed to do it with help from a1ex but no one is reporting how they did it.

And then there's the installer.c source file that can be used to generate an autoexec.bin (and thus, allow us to dump the firmware - but looks like we still need to have a FIR file made for 1.1.6, otherwise the 6D won't boot the autoexec.bin we just made)
I also tried using the special updater that coutts is mentioning at the top post but it didn't seem to work (and likely won't, since it was made for 1.1.2 ?)

Anyway, in order to compile installer.c and have it running, it looks like there are a few function stubs (the ones for firmware 1.1.6) we need to find first. Those are (according to stubs.S):
- cstart
- bzero32
- create_init_task
- init_task
and likely, most file IO functions so ML can dump the firmware on the SD card.

There are also a few defines (in config-defines.h) that seem relevant (CONFIG_DUMPER_BOOTFLAG and CONFIG_EARLY_PORT) but they are only used inside boot-hack.c (and not installer.c)

I will continue digging and report what I find later.

EDIT: Also a relevant link on the wiki about packing FIR files (might not be up-to-date)

@KelvinK thanks for the tip!

I got the 1.1.3 firmware on my computer and I'll try to downgrade it soon. I'll just follow the regular procedure as if I was upgrading it to a new firmware correct? (just a little worried that it might mess up the camera)

Then the ML file will be the magiclantern-Nightly.2015Jan29.6D113.zip ?

It's this version stable?

Thanks again!
Title: Cards for shooting RAW
Post by: javapop on February 05, 2015, 02:01:04 AM
I have used ML off and on since getting a 6D last summer. I have been using PNY 90MB/s 64GB cards for shooting regular 1080 footage with no problems over the past year. I have mainly used ML for the enhancements to audio and overlays.

I tried shooting RAW a few weeks back, and found I was getting what appears to be buffer errors. The recording stops after just a few seconds.

Is there a list of confirmed cards that handle RAW and the highest setting you can shoot RAW at on the 6D

Thanks!

Thanks!

For the last several weeks I've been scouring the forums looking for anything I could find on the 6D raw capabilities.  I decided to go ahead and join the board today so I could help contribute since I have just added a 6D to my gear bag.  So to answer your question, it looks like the bus speed of the SD slot is the limiting factor.  It looks like most people are only achieving about 40MB/s regardless of video format. 

However, what I am most interested in is the post where a person is looking into changing the bus configuration to the fastest UHS-I standard.  This could mean that the 6D may one day be capable of up to 104MB/s.  According to the standards for UHS-I, the hardware supports this speed if the software controller tells it to go that fast.  Right now, it is limited to 50MB/s theoretical performance. 

So, at most, 104MB/s is the fastest that will ever be achieved and likely the 90MB/s cards will be able to handle the fastest real-world speeds possible if someone ever figures out how to open up the fast lane of the SD bus.  Hope that helps you decide on a card, javapoop! :P

More on the topic:

Once i tried to do some filming at 60 fps MLV using a samyang 85mm T1.5 (all manual lens) But instead, it recorded at 30 fps, even thought I selected the 60 fps option from the canon menu (as that is the way to record 60 fps). Switched the lens with my canon 24-105mm L (with the camera on) and it was able to record 60 fps, but not with the all manual lens on. Rebooted the camera, the problem disappeared. Has anyone experienced something similar before? thanks.

By the way, i tried to record RAW and MLV, changing different resolution settings, going from the maximum resolution to the continuos resolution settings, still even thought with all the correct settings it should have recorded 60 fps, it just stopped at 30fps.

@ duarted Yep, follow it.
I don't think we can call it  as "stable" version for 6D. But it works with bugs and flaws and I pay alot of respect to developers make it happen as it is:) Just get used to vanishing ML menu, you've to press "trashcan" to pop it up. Also at latest, I believe half year or more, versions some regular options were removed, like choosing bitrate for h.264. I missed the point when and why it happen, but since I don't shoot with h.264 anymore never researched it/

Post by: KelvinK on February 05, 2015, 12:13:36 PM
@ javapop you card should able to write (not read!) 41MB/s - this is max. speed 6D can write on card. Play with aspect ratios to find longer time recordings. You should able archive at least 10 seconds with 2:20 ratio and 1792 resolution.
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: KelvinK on February 05, 2015, 12:16:49 PM
@ extremelypoorfilmake to record at 60 fps, you've to change canon resolution to 720p/60 and then choose desired fps in FPS OVERRIDE option.

I know that. i even wrote that in my post if you will look back :), not the FPS override option, but it recorded at 60 fps before without having to fiddle with the fps override. I just wanted to know if anybody has experienced something similar that happened to me: The 6D NOT being able to record at 60fps with a full manual lens (no communication with the camera at all) :) that's all
Title: Re: Canon 6D

@ extremelypoorfilmake Lens type has nothing to do with FPS.  I've MF Nikon lenses and FPS works same as with Canon's AF lenses.

I managed to dump the 116 ROM and started on hunting down the stubs.

For obvious reasons, I can't share the rom here however, if any of you would like to try it, here's what I did:

@ kelvin K

I know that lens have nothing to do with fps. I am just reporting what happened to me. I don't have any reason to lie or being stubborn about it. It seemed odd to me as well that i could record at 60 fps with the canon 24-105 but not with the samyang 85, because that happened to me, i just wanted to see if it was an isolated case or not. Now it seems to me that it was an isolated case!

@ KelvinK I managed to downgrade it to 1.1.3 and install ML! Thanks for the help!

By the way is it possible to shoot 60 or 50 FPS at 1080p? I was trying to use the FPS override but not sure how it works

Thanks all!
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: Walter Schulz on February 06, 2015, 12:12:20 AM
1080p50 continuous needs about 173 MByte/s. 6D is capable doing about 41 MByte/s write speed. You see the numbers don't match at all. A few seconds and frames will get lost.
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: KelvinK on February 06, 2015, 07:59:07 AM
@duarted you can get around 12-14 seconds with 48fps and 2:35 aspect ratio, so it will be average 20-24 seconds playtime, more then enough for most cases. but the main problem is terrific aliasing after upscaling to 1080p with any non closeup scene.
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: Levas on February 06, 2015, 04:45:18 PM
No in 1080p you can not get 50 or 60 fps with fps override.
So for 48/50/60fps you need to go to the 720p mode in Canon video menu.

There are some older builds of magic lantern for 6d with support 35fps with fps override in 1080p mode
The build of 15-03-2014 is capable of doing 35fps.

Oh okay. I don't understand how come I can shoot 60 and 120fps with my GoPro and Sony compact camera RX-100II but I can't do it with a 2000$US Canon =/

By the way is there a reason why the ML menu always disappears? Will it be fixed?

Thanks again for everybody's help and to everybody that made ML possible! :)

I don't understand why I can drive 200+ km/h with my 6000€ bike but that 900,000€ mobile home can't. Preposterous! And don't get me started on fuel consumption. Or finding parking lots.

Post by: duarted on February 06, 2015, 11:59:16 PM
I know the cameras have different purposes but I think it should be a priority for Canon to include 60fps at 1080p on their cameras and they're still not doing it.

You're asking yourself why a piece of sillicon chip of 25 square mm can be read out faster than a piece of sillicon chip 329 square mm ?

The video chip in the canon camera's is 10 times larger. Plus their designed to take still frames.
The gopro sensors are 10 times smaller then Canon APS-C chip's and designed to take video.

Why do you think we have still dedicated photo cameras and video cameras. It's not marketing or software blokking, it's the hardware that's designed for the right purpose.

So if it's possible why doesn't Canon do it? What could be the advantage of not including that in their new cameras?

Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: dmilligan on February 08, 2015, 01:23:04 AM
Because to do it you need to put more transistors in your electronics, which costs more money, eating into your profits on a device that is mainly marketed and sold to still photographers who could care less about advanced video features.

Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum but not ML. I've used it on a 7D in the past and just upgraded to a 6D.  Running 2015Jan29.6D113 and everything seems to be going great so far.  Tested raw video at 1728x724 for 21 seconds before frames started to skip.  Pretty happy with it so far  :D

Hey, guys. I am upgrading from the old (August) to the new (29th of Jan) Build. When i go to 'Firmware version' to uninstall, it says 1.1.3, and 'Memory card containing firmware is required to update'.

Magic Lantern is fine on the card and i use it frequently :) 

At one time, I formated the card before it could load the little Keep ML module (Q). So ML was gone. I installed it again. I'm not sure it happened like that, but ML files were gone, so this is the only explanation for it ... ??

Now i'm wondering if just formatting the card from the camera and hitting Q is a proper way to uninstall Magic Lantern. How would this affect the bootlflag, and that scary stuff. Thank you :)
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: dmilligan on February 09, 2015, 01:54:06 PM
All you have to do to install a newer version of ML is simply replace the ML files on the card with the new ones.

h.264 with bitrate control on 6d...probably available in the very old version.

Here's the oldest I could find, 22 august 2013 for 6d!

If you use this link, you can see in the left of the window all builds (click on show more, for the very old builds)

But since the 6d has the ALL-I 90Mbit recording option available, I doubt if bitrate control could add some more detail  :-\

I have 1.1.3 on my 6D, freshly formatted card with the magic lantern files put on it, and when I insert it into my camera and turn it on nothing happens. From what I can gather the camera is supposed to pick up the firmware right away and ask me to install? Hope you guys can help!

When you first download ML, at least on a mac, everything is in a single folder.  magiclanternNightly....6D113 in my case.  If you drag and drop that onto your SD card ML will not run on your camera.  You need to make sure autoexec.bin is on the main screen (not sure the proper name for it) on your SD card and not buried on a folder.  Hope that helps.

1. I can't find any audio tab on 6D and i couldn't find any module for this. Is it normal? How can I manage the audio on 6D with ML?

2. I read about the full-res silent picture mod with ML, will it work with 6D or I just missed something?

3. Is there any chance to change the h.264 bitrate like on 550D? I love the raw but sometimes i need longer record time and the basic video quality is crap...

4. And the last one, which is really annoying, why the ML menu does quit after few sec automatically if i don't touch it? Could be fixed in the future?

I am only a user, not a developer, but if i can help with anything in 6D, just let me know guys!

Hi bagi1992,

1. magiclantern-Nightly.2015Jan29.6D113 and magiclantern-Nightly.2014Aug20.6D113 are the build i am currentyl using. In the modules section mlv_snd is present. you need that module to have MLV WITH sound enabled. Bear in mind, you have to regualte the sound volume from the canon menu

3. Try to look into older builds, but anyway, if you do a quick search on the forum you will hear that is not really worthy.

4. nope, it stays that way! :P :) just live with it and be gratefull that you have a lot of goodies that the mean canon guys haven't given us! :)

But now that I've done it, would it be okay to use a 3rd party? I only have one canon and a bunch of third party. After doing some experimenting ect. I'm thinking of using it on one of my shoots, but want to make sure everything is working okay. :)

Is there a way to enable full frame video out of the Canon 6D via HDMI with magic lantern? Thanks. I know I get better frame size on my Ikan with it than the stock output, I at least get the video to meet the top and bottom of the frame. Just cannot get it to stretch to the boarders. I would like to get a ninja or the like to backup the video in case of an infield boo boo.

3. Bitrate change in 6D ML was removed since april 2014 for some (unknown for me) reason.

3. Is there any chance to change the h.264 bitrate like on 550D? I love the raw but sometimes i need longer record time and the basic video quality is crap...

4. And the last one, which is really annoying, why the ML menu does quit after few sec automatically if i don't touch it? Could be fixed in the future?

I am only a user, not a developer, but if i can help with anything in 6D, just let me know guys!

Thanks
3. 6D has ALL I mode, use it.
4. It's known bag. Also 70D and EOS M had it.

Bitrate setup: Look for older  builds

you can manage audio through magic lantern menu. You need to use Canon menu. To enable Recording Audio, you need to enable MLV_snd in the modules screen! :)

The disappearing menu is a common bug, i't there to stay and we LOVE it! :D

I am going to shoot a documentary with my 6D+ML. I also own a 550D with ML too which has two features that are missing in my 6D (latest build), and I really would like to have them because it will be very useful:
1. The audio menu: I know that there are some controls in the Canon standard menu, but I'd like to record BOTH external mic and internal mic audio in my movie, which is possible in 550D.
2. Intervalometer in video mode: I would like to shoot single clips starting with a preset delay and lasting xx seconds... this is not possible with 6D :(

Is it possible to include those features in a new build? Should I ask in the "request" subforum?
Thanks!!
Title: Strugging installing ML on a Canon 6D
Post by: PANATEC on March 03, 2015, 10:22:41 PM
Hi there,

I'd appreciate help as i got stuck trying to install ML. I downloaded the "magiclantern-Nightly.2015Mar02.6D113", and installed it over the already updated 1.1.3 firmware. All goes well, including the green message "restart the camera", i switch it off, restart and i get the canon menu and no ML.

Any clue about which might be the issue here?

I firstly installed the 1.1.6 firmware and then downgraded to 1.1.3 right after to comply with the installation instructions

Thanks in advance for your help!!!!

3. 6D has ALL I mode, use it.
Am I mistaken in thinking that All-I on the 6D was shown to have very little advantage other than bloated file size?
I had read the wonders of All-I when I first bought my camera, but somewhere along the line I came to understand IPB was actually the more sensible choice for it's overall cost/performance ratio. Maybe I was misinformed somewhere along the way...
Would love to be corrected if someone had a strong case for All-I on the 6D that I haven't heard.

p.s.
The disappearing menu is a common bug, i't there to stay and we LOVE it! :D

Okay, I may be taking crazy pills, but there was a build right before A1ex took his break from ML dev (maybe in Sept?)
and I SWEAR that the menu was persistent, no longer disappearing after a few seconds. However, it is indeed back to it's usual self on my 6D after updating from the circa fall 2014 build to a January 2015 build. Am I going crazy? Do I need to try to find this old build and test for sanity, or did someone else experience this? :P

Cheers!

Quick update on firmware 116 support

I have found most of the required stubs and addresses.
I have also managed to compile and start ML but I get a black screen (top display works, no LED activity).
I'm now trying to debug where it went wrong. So far, I have confirmed (through various trial and error) that the entry point is reached (copy_and_restart()) but along the way, it stumbles somewhere.

Will report more later.

@JLL:
Be sure to verify the correct stub necessary to hijack the gui task. Otherwise you may experience the symptomps you described. You can find it in boot-hack.c:
Code: [Select]
#ifdef CONFIG_6D
    //Hijack GUI Task Here - Now we're booting with cache hacks and have menu.
    cache_fake(0xFF0DF6DC, BL_INSTR(0xFF0DF6DC, (uint32_t)hijack_6d_guitask), TYPE_ICACHE);

Don't forget to check the hijack addresses in consts.h and #undefine property request changes in internals.h before you continue.

720p25 will do. SD-card interface is limited to about 40 MByte/s.
Look at the number ML is giving you at the bottom.
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: sirup on March 06, 2015, 08:56:57 AM
Thanks, results of 720p doesn't look nice to me. I thought that I will be able to record 4K RAW video - is this achievable somehow?

As you mentioned - it is because of slow SD card? I have class 10.
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: Walter Schulz on March 06, 2015, 09:07:13 AM
Class 10 says the card is able to do 10 MByte/s writing.
Run Debug tab -> Benchmarks -> Card R/W benchmark (5 min). Press play button soon after starting benchmark to switch to "Playback mode".

Bandwidth needed for DCI 4k native resolution) RAW uncompressed:
Horizontal resolution x vertical resolution x frame rate x 14 / 8 = Byte/s
4096 x 2160 x 25 x 14 / 8 = 387 072 000 -> 369.14 MByte/s

And 40 MByte/s is 6D's SD-card interface's limit. No matter which card you will insert.

Please do some reading about 4k recording requirements.
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: sirup on March 06, 2015, 09:17:42 AM
understand - so there is no option to do this on 6D. 5DIII has a CF card as well, so I believe that it will be possible. Right?

I have red the whole treat, however still have some missleadings - so apologies for stupid questions.

CF-Card specs for UDMA-7: Up to to 167 MByte/s.
5D3 will max out somewhere below 125 MByte/s.

Please make yourself familiar with those bandwidth issues. You need equipment with serious performance for 4k RAW recording.

Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: sirup on March 06, 2015, 09:28:05 AM

http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=6215.0

I am quite excited, because I have noticed, than my motorola moto X2 records 4K video, then I tried to make some deeper look into my 6D and ML to find out all possibilites - now it seems that limitations are on place as usual :)

Post by: sgofferj on March 06, 2015, 02:46:29 PM
Motion detection only seems to work by exposure. When I choose "difference", the detection box in LV is black and ML never detects any motion.

Besides, how important is the temperature? I had my 6D on a tripod aiming at the bird feeder with motion detection on and after about an hour, ML showed 60°C temp on a red background. I shut the camera down - just to be on the safe side... Any idea what kind of temperature the 6D can tolerate for how long?
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: sgofferj on March 06, 2015, 02:52:45 PM
@Sirup:

I would suppose that Walter meant that the 6D can shoot in 4K, it can shoot raw and it can shoot at 24/40fps, just not all at the same time.
If you use the intervallometer, you can perfectly well shoot a timelapse video in 4K/raw, just not 24/30fps real time. You can also perfectly well shoot in 24/30fps and in raw, just not 4K.
Only when you want to do everything at the same time, i.e. shoot 4K/raw at 24/30fps, you get into problems because the 6D's hardware simply can't do that.

And I realize also that when u do an auto wb, the color display aren't the same as the pics u take , u need to switch to video mode then switch back to have the correct color image display.
Anyone having that problem?

Your link led on the forum about recording in crop mode. I meant record using the full sensor. The only answer that I found was that this was done for compatibility with other cameras. Just try my steps, and you will see, what i mean. When i push Zoom button once, camera dont go in to crop mode. It's display 1X indicator and enables record in 1824x*** resolution (full sensor mode).

BTW. 70D have same resolution of sensor, and can record 1824x*** RAW video.

Because IIRC it's not supposed to work, locks up and bricks the camera...? And I remember somebody writing that the 6D doesn't have a crop mode...

I'm talk about record RAW(MLV) video in crop mode. Not about Crop mode in H.264, like crop mode on 70D and others.
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: Frank7D on March 10, 2015, 10:28:48 PM
grey,

You may be correct that I am misunderstanding you. Here's some information that may clarify the issue.
If you are shooting with a 6D, then the full sensor is 5472 x 3648 (not 1824x***). Of course, when you are shooting video, the frame size is smaller, either because it is re-sized (normal mode) or because the sensor is being cropped (crop mode).
If you shoot raw or mlv and push the zoom button once, that puts you into (magic lantern) raw crop mode. In this mode you can shoot at higher frame sizes than in normal (non-crop) raw mode. This is because there is no down-rezzing taking place in crop mode; the sensor pixels are read one-to-one from a reduced (cropped) area. When shooting in crop mode, the actual framing will not match what you see on the LCD screen. You can use grayscale preview to see the correct framing, but if you use it while you are recording then it may cause issues such as "tearing."

If I am still misunderstanding your question, please re-state it in another way.

grey,

You may be correct that I am misunderstanding you. Here's some information that may clarify the issue.
If you are shooting with a 6D, then the full sensor is 5472 x 3648 (not 1824x***). Of course, when you are shooting video, the frame size is smaller, either because it is re-sized (normal mode) or because the sensor is being cropped (crop mode).

If I am still misunderstanding your question, please re-state it in another way.



Do you have EOS 6D? You try to do what i'am talking about?

To use Crop mode i'm must push Zoom button TWICE, then 5X indicator appear, and i see BW preview of ~3X crop image with correct framing.

Full resolution of video buffer in normal video mode is 1824 (5472/3) by 1216 (3648/3). It's because of line /row skipping. But for some reason maximum resolution in RAW/MLV limitter to 1792x***.

I'am accidentally find this "bug", with pushing zoom button once, and now i can record at 1824x***, but framing is only default 16:9. And i'm asking why record in full resolution is disabled by default?


I'm recorded short video about this.

I'm stable getting 13-14 seconds of MLV video 1824*776*24P. But it's not comfortable witout correct framing.

Can you upload a VRAM dump for the x1 zoom mode?

Instructions here: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=12375.50

Please do the dump only in the x1 zoom mode, since the file names might be bogus (so if you do more dumps, I'll have trouble identifying which file is which).



edit: I think I've found the problem. Can you try this change (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/commits/bc3d90321576)? (it's in the latest nightly)

To double-check the skip offsets, download raw_diag.mo (http://a1ex.magiclantern.fm/bleeding-edge/raw_diag.mo), select the "OB zones" option, run it in LiveView (half-shutter) and post a screenshot. Repeat the raw_diag test for every LiveView mode (1080p, 720p, 480p, 1x, 5x, 10x, photo, and whatever other modes your camera may have).

Is it possible to get more than 3x crop? I noticed that when I switch to 10x zoom, it still records 3x crop... The newer cameras have a lot of pixels... 1:2 or even 1:1 could be cool...
Title: Re: Canon 6D

3x crop *is* 1:1 recording without skipped pixels inside the active/recorded area.

Download the module, enable it from Debug menu, enable "OB zones" in the submenu, then go to LiveView and press the shutter halfway to take a test picture. You should get something like this:

It appears to be the x1 zoom mode (which appears to behave just like the regular LiveView).

(btw, what's the usefulness of this zoom mode? does it have anything special, compared to normal - unzoomed - LiveView mode?)
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: grey on March 12, 2015, 09:18:33 AM
In this mode, 1X, you see correct framing to next zoom mode(5x) and select what point will be zoomed. Vertical rectangle disappear, and horizontal rectangle with aspect ration 3:2 appear on display.

I'm not very strong in English, but i hope you understand what i mean.

Question instead of a card hungry raw mode what is the possibility to shoot in 4k? @30 or @24fps. They have a large enough sensor? Or 720 @ 60 or @ 120fps? Even a 720x480 @240fps? I would love these options so would many others. Just a quick bit of curiosity.

Grey sorry to have done so. I did a search on the guide and nothing about full frame mode on hdmi out. Meaning no cropped video on the monitor. I have played with output and lost the black bars on the top and bottom but the black bars on the right and left remain. Is that something I will have to live with or something ml can fix eventually? Would be nice to be able to use a ninja or Aja for backup in the field. I do like the clear displays feature..

As i know, only 5D3 have normal HDMI. And only 5D3 capture real Full HD image from sensor. May be because of need to resize or interpolate image we do't have normal image from HDMI on 6D and others.

Just in case, if you didn't know/check yet -  in latest build, alex while fixing raw offset (it works, thanx) made possible (probabaly as side effect) to shot raw with slightly bigger horizontal resoluiton. It's 1824 (was 1792) now :)

Update on 1.1.6 port

EDIT: bit of progress, the problem I'm having is actually elsewhere. I disabled CONFIG_CRASH_LOG and it doesn't crash anymore so I guess I'm missing some more stubs.
However, the while loop still doesn't go through. Will keep digging.

Quote
I kind of tracked down the source of my black screen.

Basically, my port runs fine until the line below in boot-hack.c
The way I "confirmed" the code to be running fine until here is by adding calls to info_led_blink() at several points during boot.
The led blinks fine and I can even take pictures (top lcd working, viewfinder info working, no back lcd).
However, once I reach this line, the camera either simply doesn't turn on, or if I turn it on quickly enough and try to take a picture, it will freeze (err 80 on top lcd)

Code: [Select]
    // wait for firmware to initialize
    while (!bmp_vram_raw()) msleep(100);

I have found bmp_vram_info to be 0x9bc98 on 1.1.6, according to the references I found for 1.1.3 and matched the code with the dump on 1.1.6

On 1.1.3, there are two references to the bmp_vram_info address (0x9bc78) when searching for SetBitmapVramAddress

Code: [Select]
ff13a134: e28f2e2d add r2, pc, #720 ; ff13a40c: (42746553)  *"SetBitmapVramAddress BitmapAddr:%#08x"
[snip]
ff13a148: e59f42e4 ldr r4, [pc, #740] ; ff13a434: (0009bc78)

Code: [Select]
"SetBitmapVramAddress BitmapAddr:%#08x":
ff13a40c: 42746553 rsbsmi r6, r4, #348127232 ; 0x14c00000
ff13a410: 616d7469 cmnvs sp, r9, ror #8
[snip]
ff13a430: 00000078 andeq r0, r0, r8, ror r0
ff13a434: 0009bc78 andeq fp, r9, r8, ror ip

On 1.1.6:
Code: [Select]
ff13a12c: e28f2e2d add r2, pc, #720 ; ff13a404: (42746553)  *"SetBitmapVramAddress BitmapAddr:%#08x"
[snip]
ff13a140: e59f42e4 ldr r4, [pc, #740] ; ff13a42c: (0009bc98)

Code: [Select]
"SetBitmapVramAddress BitmapAddr:%#08x":
ff13a404: 42746553 rsbsmi r6, r4, #348127232 ; 0x14c00000
ff13a408: 616d7469 cmnvs sp, r9, ror #8
[snip]
ff13a428: 00000078 andeq r0, r0, r8, ror r0
ff13a42c: 0009bc98 muleq r9, r8, ip

So I am not sure why the while() loop is making the camera crash.

Any ideas ?

Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: sgofferj on March 20, 2015, 07:16:39 AM
Nope, in h.264 it simply ignores the zoom button.

Edit: It would be very cool (and helpful) if it was possible to cycle through the zoom modes in crop mode without leaving crop mode, so one could switch e.g. between 1x for framing and 10x for focus verification back and forth.

when i go to canon menus on the firmware it says: "vers. firmware: 1.1.3". shouldnt be a ML nightly build there? At least on my 550D it shows.
I have the canon language set to portuguese. does it matter?

Good Day. I wonder is the there a video or a positing that demonstrates the maximum settings or functionality that can be achieved with ML and the Canon 6D with version 1.1,3.    i ask because i have seen video with Magic Zoom activated (green) on the 6D and i am unable to active this function. I have also seen a video with what i believe was also the 6D with a different Dispay Menu system with all the item at the bottom of the screen. I have also seen Temp viewable. Therefor it would be awesome to know how to maximise ML on the 6D and what ML items are not compatible.

Thanks in advance Simon

Post by: Levas on March 29, 2015, 12:55:14 AM
If magic zoom and other stuff is visible on the 6d screen depends on the status of the "info" button.
Every time you press the "info" button, you see more or less stuff on the display.
This also works without Magic lantern, you can see a histogram and level meter etc...

Magic lantern can only put stuff on your screen if you have no "standard Canon" stuff in on the display, push the "info" button as many times before you see magic lantern stuff in the display, for example RAW histogram or battery level, or magic zoom (push the magnify button).

Seems to be running so far, but as I am rather a hacker than a user, I could be missing something.  Read this as: please test! ;)

For those of you how want to try the 6D.116 work-in-progress:

Some modules may not work, as they check explicitly for 6D.113.

There may also be bugs. The usual disclaimers apply.

For those of you finding bugs in the 6D.116 image, please send me a private message here or ping me on IRC.

Use crop marks. Alex fixed framing on 6D only for 1792.

6D raw-video (MLV) magiclantern-Nightly.2015Mar29.6D113

Pressing the zoom-button after starting the record let the camera hang. I have to remove the akku. This happens to both, cropped and uncropped mode.

If it hangs on the magnify button, while recording, has to do with global draw settings.

In the overlay tab set the Global Draw setting to -> On, all modes
And within the raw video menu set the Global Draw setting to -> Allow (I believe if this setting is set to off, then it hangs...)

Enabling GD in MLV-Menue let the cam hang, too.
It´s interesting. If the cam hangs, I can turn it off. The mirror jumps back. But the frozen picture on the LV-monitor stays.

Hello everybody,

without knowing that JLL is already working on a 6D.116 port, I did a little work myself.

The resulting source code can be found here: https://bitbucket.org/Maqs/magic-lantern/branch/6D.116 (https://bitbucket.org/Maqs/magic-lantern/branch/6D.116)

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=https%3A%2F%2Fdl.dropboxusercontent.com%2Fu%2F11244516%2Fpics%2F6D.116.png&hash=0cc1b985262382fc17ef1245816e0d32)

Seems to be running so far, but as I am rather a hacker than a user, I could be missing something.  Read this as: please test! ;)

For those of you how want to try the 6D.116 work-in-progress:
  • download the 6D.113 nightly (https://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/) as a base
  • replace the autoexec.bin file with autoexec.bin (https://www.eunomia.de/~marcus/autoexec.bin)
  • put the symbol file 6D_116.sym (https://www.eunomia.de/~marcus/6D_116.sym) in ML/modules/

Some modules may not work, as they check explicitly for 6D.113.

There may also be bugs. The usual disclaimers apply.

Thanks to Maqs, I've been able to fill in the values I was missing.
ML seems to run fine on 6D with firmware 116. I haven't done any extensive tests yet though.
Anyone who wants to try it can test the binary provided by Maqs.

Hey guys and gals,

Newbie here. Just found out about ML (but I did use CHDK a few years ago, so not new to hacking my cameras).

My 6D has 114 on it. What's the recommendation / best option? Downgrade to 113 and use the stable build of ML, or upgrade to 116 and go with one of these 116 builds?

My primary reasons for install ML are for focus peaking and intervalometer.

There is no stable build for 6D. Only version "officially" distributed is Nightly Build for firmware 1.1.3.

magic zoom is not my problem. My problem ist, that I have to operate with my camera blindly and can push this button accidentdly. It´s quite dark, when I´m doing my astrofotografie  ;)

I clearly understand you. I am just note, that if magiczoom is enabled, and activated by ring camera did not crash. Camera crashes after Zoom button pushed, no matter enabled or disabled MZ.

Is it only in the latest build Changeset: de7779d?

Or the one beforehand also Changeset: 2794562?

i'm not shure, but i think i see it first time in 07.04 build.

Not sure how you peeps are quoting in your messages here, I see no "Quote" or "Reply-with-quote" buttons on the messages here. Very strange.

I'll try some manual tags...

OK, that worked. Rather strange though.

Anyway, thanks Walter.

Successfully downgraded from 114 to 113 and got the Mar 7th daily working nicely. From start to finish, less than 30 minutes to get going.

Now the video feature on my 6D may just be useful thanks to ML's focus peaking. I really don't see how anyone without ML is successfully filming anything with a varying focal distance unless they've got an external monitor and a focus puller. Or they're just shooting with f27 and having everything possible in focus.

What about errors in MLV module? CF buffers and card spaning options is not removed in current nightly.  :( And if it's possible, please correct framing box for 1824 x *** resolution for RAW and MLV.

didn't know about canon max resolution, but for sure 1824 in raw featured only in very latest builds, it was 1792 before that, we had year ago 1808, but later it was gone. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AgQ2MOkAZTFHdFFIcFp1d0R5TzVPTVJXOEVyUndteGc#gid=5

Max resolurion is well known. 5472/3=1824. 5d2 and 5d3 have higher resolution because they have more Mpixel sensors.

the best would be to have clean HDMI output as well as for 5dmkiii, but I'm beginning to think that this will never happen...

Clean HDMI is impossible, because there is no Full HD source in camera.

All this IMHO.

5d3 have true Full HD/1920 resolution from sensor, and can output it to HDMI point-by-point. 6D have only 1824 px directly from sensor, so if it output video to HDMI without software enlarging, video will have black framing.

Hi All,

A question from a newbie here. I am trying to shoot low fps video with as slow a shutter speed as possible, ideally 6 fps video (5.995 actual) with 1/6 sec shutter speed. Strangely I am some times getting 1/6 but some times camera refuses to go slower than 1/7 sec. I am trying to make some light painting videos where minimising the gap between frames is critical. Can somebody help with this? Camera is running 1.1.3.

Regards,
Guru

I have had it happen again where a card freaks out and gives me the initialize card error. Found a working solution if you have a friend with a Mac you can use disk utilities to repair the card it will then it will repair the boot record on the chip and no loss of video. I have had to do this 3 times so I know it works. The first time I had it happen I didn't know about the disk utility repair. And formatted the chip and used $60 in recovery software but the video was corrupt. This way does not corrupt the footage. But it only works if you get the error screen that asks if you want to initialize ignore or eject screen (click ignore of course) then load disk utility then run disk repair. If you don't get that and only get the ignore/eject error eject the card and try again. It you cannot get the Initialize/ignore/eject error message keep trying but if you can't I do not know what to say as I did have a card that took 6 tried to get working (micro sd in a Microsoft to sd converter.  )Hope this helps others. This has only happened to me while using magic lantern..

Concerning the 6d.116 port: Thanks maqs & jlgw for the work (even double the amount :-p).

1. It would be nice if both attempts would be merged, jlgw looks a bit more complete right now (including the stub for SetAudioVolumeIn), but maqs has some patches for modules jlgw doesn't have. Here's the wrap:

https://bitbucket.org/JLGW/magic-lantern/branches/compare/6D-116%0Dunified#diff
https://bitbucket.org/Maqs/magic-lantern/branches/compare/6D.116%0Dunified#diff

2. Personally, I won't use 1.1.6 until it can beep() - can it?

Otherwise (even if Alex will cry out in pain) it needs an update to 1%'s cache hack, I'd rather have some odd err70 crash now and then if multiple beeps occur in quick succession than having no beep at all as I rely so much on it for blind camera operation. I know this won't make it into mainline ML, but for personal builds it's better than nothing.

There is 1%'s source mod for 1.1.3 with his run_hacks() (see https://bitbucket.org/OtherOnePercent/tragic-lantern-6d/src/05b95b89c05e/src/beep.c) which probably needs some updated HIJACK_ addresses (see https://bitbucket.org/OtherOnePercent/tragic-lantern-6d/src/a2952db9d4dfb0180f61eb596741b251991c9b2a/platform/6D.113/consts.h?at=unified)

6D.116 - specific

https://bitbucket.org/Maqs/magic-lantern/branches/compare/6D.116%0Dunified#diff

I left out SetAudioVolumeIn for a reason - it is only used in bitrate-6d.c, which is "disabled" anyway. It cannot be used safely, as all the cache_hack()s would need updating. Consider it a safety measure.

The port is working fine here, but there's about no feedback from testers so far. :-(

2. Personally, I won't use 1.1.6 until it can beep() - can it?

No need for any cache hacking here - just merge in the new sound system, uncomment "#define CONFIG_BEEP" in internals.h and it can beep:
https://bitbucket.org/Maqs/magic-lantern/commits/7dee3c7e7690d6f9e277838a15e9514b35c349a6

The mp3 player works as well, including nice sound effects when turning off the camera while playing. :-)

Well, yeah, that's ML development for you - esp. with a camera with an incomplete port and "blindly" maintained there won't be a lot of folks here using it. But now that beep works I'll switch, but not in the next few days but more like few weeks.

Great news, thanks! I knew the new sound system was working on it, but didn't realize it was already working as the last commit in this branch is months old and usually things only work on 5d3 first and then filter down to 6d eventually.

Just want to throw my .02 in on this point as a 6D ML user --
Basically, I've not seen any real reason to upgrade to 116,  so even less reason to have been paying attention to ML's 116 update. If I'm not mistaken the 6D gains almost nothing from 116, but loses 3rd party battery support, which is my main resistance to updating. As far as 6D users interested in using and testing ML, we are out here, maybe just not all of us  are ready to switch to 116 and give up our 3rd party batteries. I'd love to be mistaken on the battery issue.

Best,

Are you sure about the batteries? I'm using a cheap china ac adapter for development and it just shows a message the first time I start after putting it in, saying something like "Could not connect to battery. Use this battery?". I then select "OK" and I can use the camera. I have to take it out(or disconnect the power) for the message to show again, just turning the camera off and on again won't trigger it. It should however not be impossible to get rid of that message.

For my PATONA LP-E6 battery, the camera does not complain at all.

I see no reason to upgrade to 1.1.6.
As far as I can tell, nothing serious was introduced with these new firmwares since 1.1.3.

To be able to use magic lantern is the reason for me to stay at 1.1.3.

If ML stays at 1.1.3, I stay at 1.1.3.
If ML development is switching to 1.1.6, I'm switching to 1.1.6.

I keep getting mic plugged in mic unplugged constantly . And the camera will not record. Thinking of trying 1.1.6 to see if the power supply works and if the audio issues goes away.. If it does not work I'll revert to 1.1.3 and ML

I'm using 1.1.6. So the exact problem is that the camera does not record with non-Canon batteries?

For those willing to test 1.1.6:

The latter does not have raw_rec in it, as the module does not compile properly. Do not expect all sounds to work properly (the mp3 player and beep testing does, but arkanoid crashes) due to some problem I'm trying to investigate. Also let me mention that new-sound-system is no "productive" branch and you may find other problems with it.

An installer (new one (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-request/631/new-installers/diff)) for 6D.116 is included for your convenience. Once again, as for ML itself, using those builds is at your own risk. I use those (and more unstable/testing ones) on a daily basis, but not for important work. You can always start your camera without ML by keeping SET pressed while turning it on. This also comes in handy dealing with April's fool jokes. If you experience any strange behaviour like freezing, crashes, stuff turning weird, the best way usually is to take the battery out and put it back in.

Please report problems to me via IRC or a direct message, as I am not in the forum often.

* You're mistaken, 1.1.6 contains a critical fix (if you're hurt by the bug) for tracking with all af pts as lower fw versions tended to ignore the center point. I'm a victim of this absolutely hilarious and annoying behavior, that's why I need to update.

* As far as I've read the posts on CR discussing Canon's battery game, only old or non-chipped batteries are sanctioned with an annoying message - but if you've got a newer clone battery with a chip it should still work. Actually the battery charger is more likely to refuse 3rd party batteries than the camera atm.

Do not expect all sounds to work properly (the mp3 player and beep testing does, but arkanoid crashes) due to some problem I'm trying to investigate. Also let me mention that new-sound-system is no "productive" branch and you may find other problems with it.

Well, a lot of stuff stuck in branches is probably working 99% and isn't merged for missing the last 1% (no pun intended to the former TL author :-)).

Thanks for looking into the sound system crash, but it could be difficult as no dev around here has a 6d and will be able to help you - I faintly remember the 6d using some rather exotic sound chip? I'll wait for you reporting back here on this.

The 6d has the same audio codec as the 5d3, so this shouldn't be a big problem. However, they use different interfaces (I2C on 6d, SPI on 5d3). :-)

At the moment, the only problem left seems to be something with StopASIFDMADAC (will ASSERT and then show ERR 70). Seems to be some semaphore thing, not toooo difficult I hope. I'll keep you updated. I will also try to provide updates in form of full nightly-like .zip files with the installer, but I will most likely start a new thread for 6D.116.

Yes, already done and working. I'd also like to thank g3gg0 for his help. The thing is that StopASIFDMADAC cannot be called from the callback, as the semaphore is already taken there, which will result in TakeSemaphore in StopASIFDMADAC to time out, then ASSERT (ERR 70). There's still a problem with arkanoid beeps, but I'll have a look at that tomorrow.

Title: GPS question
Post by: fdzaebel on April 20, 2015, 11:55:59 PM
Hi all,

I plan to buy a 6D and use Magic Lantern on it. One thing I am not happy about is the "last fix repeat" behavior when the camera is not able to detect the satellites (e.g. within in buildings). As far as I know the 6D keeps the last GPS coordinates for 10 minutes and after this time it simply stops to save geo information within the pictures.

My question: Did Magic Lantern address this issue and if not, is it planned to be addressed, e.g. by simply saving the last coordinates within the pictures for more than 10 minutes (better than no information)? I searched the forum but did not see any discussions on this.

THANKS,

Frank.

It is not on my to-do list at the moment, but I could look into it once all issues with the port are solved. The 6D is the only camera with a built-in GPS that is supported by ML. The 7D Mk II has one as well, but is not supported by ML (yet?). Therefore we should maybe go for implementing all the GPS related features in a module. Maybe some features can be used from cameras with external GPS support as well.

Ahh, I see. I should have clarified that for me personally, I've never experienced an AF problem because I'm shooting all manual glass anyway. I can see why you might want the af point bug fixed.
And as for the batteries, I had not tested this problem myself, but remember reading a few different people who had reported 3rd party batteries no longer working. This is actually good news to hear, as most of my batteries are not Canon OEM and I may at some point update if ML is working on 116.

Still, I think what I was getting at is there may be a few other 6D owners out here, like me, who haven't really seen a big reason to switch to 116, but who are following the boards and testing new builds -- just not necessarily the 116 ones at this point. So keep up the good work!

Hey everybody,

starting from g3gg0's mp3_play.mo included in the -nss (new-sound-system) version of the 6D.116 test firmware, I implemented a proof-of-concept for streaming mp3 from the web. The radio station is hard coded (rbb Fritz (http://www.fritz.de/)), as it is only a proof-of-concept. Please do not report bugs for this, it's only to show what could be done.

To try it on your 6D with firmware version 1.1.6, you need the -nss version (http://37.221.193.59/~marcus/magiclantern-6D116-nss.zip) and this module: MP3 streaming proof-of-concept (6D.116 + nss only) (http://37.221.193.59/~marcus/mp3_str.mo)

You can find the source here: source (.tar.bz2) (http://37.221.193.59/~marcus/mp3_str.tar.bz2).

To test it

Although it is very unlikely, your camera might explode, turn into a Ferrari or other horrible things may happen, so trying this is at your own risk. You have been warned.

Have fun! :-)

70D suffers from same problem and I already tried some canceltimers starting at line 307++ (https://bitbucket.org/nikfreak/magic-lantern/src/1ace8a558a3aedd20f22ebeb45f22f0b2e26f984/platform/70D.111A/stubs.S?at=70D-merge#cl-307) but haven't been lucky

I'll see what I can find, that bug seems pretty annoying.

The port is working fine here, but there's about no feedback from testers so far. :-(

Just to chime in: I updated my 6D to 1.1.6 > unpacking your 'nightly' ZIP now :-)

I'll report back if I find any issues. Thanks a lot for your work!

Maqs

I previously tried the 113 version and was able to record raw (MLV_REC) video within the limitations of the 6D. I then upgraded to 116 and, using Maqs' files, have been unable to record raw (neither MLV_REC nor RAW_REC). I tried several times with different resolutions, but nothing has worked so far. I always end up with a .mlv file of 1 kb, and a .tmp file with 259,088.kb (which I notice seems to be the same size for every .tmp file -- including those that worked when I used fm 113). The first thing I notice when I switch the LiveView/Movie switch to Movie, is that the objects in my lens' view appear briefly in color and then turn dark grey with no color. While attempting to record, after pushing the record button, there is a "Preparing" message for several seconds and then the little red video camera indicator with the time elapsed appears, but the time does not increment and the rec/standby box continues to indicate "Not Recording."  Apart from the raw video, other functions appear to work, such as the Intervalometer and the GPS function. So, at the moment, my only problem with Maqs' files is with recording raw video. The first time I installed Maqs' files, I encountered all these problems. So I removed Magic Lantern and was using my 6D with the 116 fm. I did not encounter any problems with 116 that were noticeable to me.  Then olehenrikj reported problems with the dualiso plugin which Maqs fixed with a new file (same link as the old file). So I downloaded the new file, installed it, and re-encountered all of the above raw video problems. 

Thanks very much.

Hello Norm,

thanks for testing! You're right, something's wrong there. I already tripple-checked most of the stubs used there, so I need to look at this at a deeper level, which may take some time. :-/

did you already verify the state-objects (6D.116 / include / platform / state-object.h)?
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: npb on April 26, 2015, 10:06:40 PM
Hi Maqs

   I also noticed that when I tried to take a photo using Live View, the screen turned dark grey just as it had when I was switching to movie mode when attempting raw video. So there seems to be a common issue with the Live View mode both for photos and for raw video. When I restarted the camera and held the set button, thus avoiding loading Magic Lantern, I was able to use the Live View to take a photo without any problem.

 Since I am experimenting with shooting raw video (just to see how it works. I have no intention of actually using it for my home/recreational purposes, since it really takes a lot of time, effort and resources to arrive at a finished product), I have switched back to fm 113 for the time being. So take your time finding a fix. I have no doubt you will eventually figure this out. I do appreciate you and the others who are able to do this sort of programming for your great work, and, to be honest, I'm a bit jealous.

Ooops, you are completely right, thanks! My bad, I overlooked those. Fixed them and raw recording works now - at least here. :)

So here are the new test images:

Quote from: Maqs
For those willing to test 1.1.6:
  • Nightly-like firmware .zip: download (http://37.221.193.59/~marcus/magiclantern-6D116.zip)
  • Firmware with new-sound-system (but without raw_rec): download (with new-sound-system) (http://37.221.193.59/~marcus/magiclantern-6D116-nss.zip)

As for ML itself, using those builds is at your own risk. I use those (and more unstable/testing ones) on a daily basis, but not for important work. You can always start your camera without ML by keeping SET pressed while turning it on. This also comes in handy dealing with April's fool jokes. If you experience any strange behaviour like freezing, crashes, stuff turning weird, the best way usually is to take the battery out and put it back in.

I have added Magic Lantern for 1.1.6 to one of my Canon 6D's I know without ML on the external power supply (3rd Party) does not work I get an error 70 and the camera locks up :( But so far after 5 minutes and counting version 1.1.6 is still trucking..  Ill give you more updates.
MY only issues the same with ML 1.1.3 is I cannot have an external audio source into my camera while on power supply.
I have a Tascam DR-60 , Tascam DR-40 , And a Rhode 9v mic that keep giving me the Mic connected Mic Disconnected error.. Both 1.1.6 and 1.1.3 ML give me that error..  Hopefully someone can recommend something besides don't use them ...

Thanks in advance Will let you know if it shuts down ...

This is cool that I can use the new update :)

Update with the 3rd party power supply I was able to record almost an hour of footage.(I shut it off) Also I hooked an audio source into it while it recorded and it was dropping in and out( can't hook up audio before you hit record it will lock up the camera)  .. I then took the 3rd party power supply off and ran it with a battery and never had a drop out of audio.(this device was the Tascam DR-60 playing back previously recorded audio. ) 

If I can return to 1.1.3 I will and run the latest ML but wanted to test this out.. Also I did the Canon Firmware (1.1.6) and ML is not letting me the ML version.(yet ML for 1.1.6 runs). It locks up if I try to install Firmware.

Anyone has issue with Powersave option in very latest builds 15.04? When sensor is off you can turn it on only by top wheel, doesn't respond to shutter button anymore after some time. It happens after some time of using camera. At the beginning camera wakes up with shutter, but after 10-15 minutes only with wheel.

Can't thank you guys enough for all the hard work and dedication to keeping ML Raw working on the 6D. I have a couple of 6D bodies and a Panasonic GH4. While the GH4 is a good 4K camera, I'm still blown away by the 14bit raw on my 6D bodies. 4K is nice but ML raw still looks incredible compared to the GH4 files - even with a little moire/aliasing on the 6D (some of which can be fixed in post).

Been talked about before on the ML forum, buy a camera for the developer, or, donate money.
But it's (spare)time that they really need.

As Levas said: It's not money that counts here. We had fundings done in no time before.
If you want to do something for the project your support will be appreciated a lot: User Guide redo, testing/debugging or any other thing to improve.
But if you have a spare developer in the attic we will all be very, very excited.
Title: Re: Canon 6D
Post by: Maqs on May 01, 2015, 09:48:52 AM
I also agree with what Levas and Walter said: it's more a time issue than a money issue. Even though I'm still in training and can't throw money around, I already have the camera. For me, the main problem is that I am not a 'real' user but rather somebody who enjoys hacking and uses the camera for hobby photography only. That said, it shouldn't be too difficult to port the comparably few things (mostly addresses of functions or structures) that need porting for a new feature. I try to test everything I put in public as good as I can. I'm confident that the 6D.116 port should by now include everything that 6D.113 does and even a bit more (like working sound with the new sound system).

The general problems I see from my point of view:

I would also be glad if anyone could confirm that batteries by other manufacturers do not work for 6D.116, as I have both non-Canon batteries and a cheap China AC adapter and both work after answering an initial "Communication with battery not possible. Do you really want to use it?" (or similar) prompt with "Yes" only the first time after inserting the battery.

There are also a few long term goals on my todo list like implementing a http server to browse photos (networking is working fine via DLNA mode), HTTP or FTP uploads of images/videos (the latter may be sloooow), the GPS feature suggested by fdzaebel or maybe getting mjpeg recording to work, but that still needs a lot of testing and benchmarking to see if the encoder would be fast enough to make it feasible at a reasonable frame rate. "Features" like MP3 streaming are just for fun and just to test the networking API. :-)

Feedback is - of course - welcome! :-)

I'd like to use ML in order to have a intervalometer function on my camera since the intervalometer I own only works with my T4i.

Hello Guys,

I'm new in Magic Lantern and I just read a lot of the discussions on the forum and installed the latest nightly build on my canon 6D.113.
The installation went well but it seems like there are a lot of options that are grayed and then not activated, like Magic Zoom for example. I checked in the /#/features page and it is supposed to be working, did I miss something or is that just the current state while the build for 116 is at work ?

I've read the thing on the info button, tried to hit the info button many times in different configurations but did not found how to make it work.

Thanks a lot for your help and for all the fantastic work you do

But anyway, thanks again for all your work

Probably time shortage and or incompatibility with the current ML builds.

If you download very old nightly builds from about end 2013, begin 2014 there's audio controls.

But actually I don't know what you guys are missing, there's audio controls in the Canon menu, 6d has manual audio controls by factory default, no need to hack...
I set the audio manually in the canon menu and record raw MLV's with sound perfectly.

The two main features I'd like are individual gain control of L and R channels from an external mic, and the ability to monitor audio through the mini usb (via an adapter cable), both of which are features on my 60D's ML audio menu.
Is there a way that I can help with the advancement of the 6D's ML version? I know nothing about the coding, but I have the camera, and if there was a way that I could run tests for the developers, I'd be more than happy to do so.

Maybe you can ask in this topic if they can compile a 6d build for you with the audio controls in it, so you can test if it works or not ?

The amount of moire is, besides the camera, influenced by the demosaicing of the raw developer you're using.

I use RawTherapee, it's a free photo editing program that let's you choose between different demosaicing techniques.
I load the DNG's in RawTherapee, edit them and output them as TIFF.
The "LMMSE" demosaising works best for e to keept moire and aliasing to a minimum.
The TIFF sequence can be loaded in many video editors for further editing.

Lot's of dead/hot pixels. What ISO was this shot in ?

Don't know which programs you already tried, but I loaded them into RawTherapee and they're fixable, but you there are still a lot of black pixels in the frame  ecause of the dead pixels, but in a video they might not be that bothering...

For the future:
-Remap your pixels: google on the words -> remap pixels canon
This helped a lot for mine 6d.
-Find a photo/video editor software that can fix the remaining dead/hot pixels, I use RawTherapee, but there are a lot more options out there.

Either 3200 or 6400 iso. But actually the once Shot like 30 min earlier were great not even one dead pixel. There was a bit more light.

They are disturbing coz they flicker all over the pic :/
 it's ok for the footage don't really care it was just a test I can re-share them but it was just to see the coz of this, if it's due to the long time shooting and the cam got hot? Or the way I shot them? Or something else...

Looks like they are shot while it turns slowly dark outside.

Is it due to the low light?

could be, or because the sensor got warm.
The shots earlier, where they shot on the same settings(iso, diafragma and shutter time) ?

If settings were the same, my guess it was caused by underexposure.

If I shoot something in low light with ISO 3200 or 6400 I use dark frame subtraction in RawTherapee.
I made darkframe MLV's and combined them to one single frame for dark frame subtraction.
But in those cases I have the vertical banding noise, which I'm not seeing in your shots.

No I had lower iso like 800 or 1600. But the dark frame won't work coz the dead pixels changes form a Frame to another and one shot to another. 
And I'm a bit confused now coz I've seen a video of someone shooting in h2. 46 not even raw and the footage are very clean and it was in low light too....  Need to do another test.  U never had that prob shooting raw videos in low light?

Canon H.264 uses quite some noise reduction and some sharpening and some upscaling and some softening and because of it's soft/mashy output Canon has been dissed quite often.
You're comparing incomparable things: RAW without that much image manipulation and a heavily manipulated one.
If you're happier with H.264 ...

Don't forget that raw needs to be processed and developed, just like shooting a raw photo.
If you shoot a photo canon raw CR2 format on iso 6400, you need (heavy) noise reduction and dead/hot pixel remover too.

Shooting low light/ high iso in raw means a little more time on tweaking the image

I'm not happier I'm just trying to understand where the dead pixels coming from

Well on my photos even in high iso there's no dead pixels

With video the sensor is heating up by being used and exposed the whole time.
So more hot pixels then in photo mode. (And maybe there's some more 'magic' going on in the CR2 file format, which makes it cleaner  ???)
BUT:
Have you already tried remapping your pixels(search for it on google, something with lens cap on the body and manual sensor cleaning)
Remapping pixels helped a lot with my camera in raw video for the higher iso's.

The camera extracts the hot pixels from this map in real/time, so you start with cleaner frames.

There's no magic with CRs :) Canon firmware processing them and removing hot pixels, even with 3200 iso and 30 seconds you wont get any pixels, until your censor is dead. It's same with original canon video.
Very strange you're getting hot pixels in different locations on different frames with same time shooting. Noramly I get them at same location, but it cabe different other day.

LR removes automatically removes most of dead pixels as well.

Hello Yeah those pixels appears at iso 6400 (not sure if 3200 too should try it tonight) . I was able to remove most but there are still a lot and as they go randomly on each frame they flicker while playing the video. And I realized that it's only on highlights area.

If it's not too much to ask can u try like iso 6400 in medium light room and see if u have them as well?

Thanks for ur reply
Title: Re: Canon 6D / Firmware 1.1.3 - Dual ISO inconsistencies
Post by: anti on June 09, 2015, 10:59:37 AM
(searched this thread but not seen this mentioned)

I've been shooting with dual ISO for many months on my 6D. Normally not noticed any issues. This weekend I went out and shot a bunch of images, using ISO 100/1600, with my camera mounted on top of a pole and remotely triggered using Pocket Wizards. When I reviewed the photos later, I noticed some did not shoot as dual ISO.

They seemed to perhaps be related to waking the camera up after a couple of minutes, and the first burst is capturing in 'normal' mode, before it switches on dual ISO. I missed a few shots (or more properly, I got them but they're shot a couple of stops under) which is a bit of a shame but hey…but as I've never come across this inconsistency before I wanted to post it here in case this is known.

My guess is that the half-press to wake is enough to get the camera ready for shooting, but there's some kind of lag/delay before a command kicks in to enable dual ISO for the remainder of the burst (or for a second burst). Camera was set to continuous shoot mode.

FYI Build was magiclantern-Nightly.2015May03.6D113

My ML on my 6D will not load correctly if it goes into sleep mode and I after that press the shutter. For example the AF-shortcut of the SET-button. I have changed the sleeping mode to 8 minutes instead of 1 minute now.

Is there any way to see how much GB remain on card while recording on screen? When I not recording ML show how many GB  remain on card (in upper right corner) but while recording it show me only 25fps instead remaining GB ;(

I don't know how it should be, but real space remaining on card updating only after turn off/on camera.

Hello!
I download today and install last version ML on my camera. I turn on module: ettr, silent, raw recording. Restart. Then i turn on ettr and silent. Then i change aperture to 5,6. Then i turn on intervalometer. After few second my camera make a 5 shots, but when i look the parameters of this shoot i see aperture = 2.8. I try many times, format card, change any parameters, but my camera all time in intervalometer set aperture = 2.8.
Can anybody help me and told what i do wrong?

Silent picture doesn't close the diafragma when taking a picture.
To use diafragma You need to turn on the expo override option in the ML menu.
This way it closes the diafragma.

i turn on "expo override" and try few times. but when i look the parameters of this shoot i still see aperture = 2.8. i turn on and of "expo sim". And ETTR also. And when i turn ETTR the iso was huge
