Will this be available in all versions of Magic Lantern?

Camera-specific discussion / Re: Canon 550D / T2i
« on: February 10, 2018, 02:44:37 AM »
I just saw a Tweet that no one had given test results back concerning the T2i with firmware 1.1.0, well I just installed the 1.1.0 firmware from Canon and then the ML firmware patch. I've got everything setup, but I'm wondering if there's a suite of tests that are expected or just how does ML work in general on the T2i?

Please advise and I'll run through things, also where do these results get posted?

Raw Video / Re: 550D raw video recording port official thread

I too am of the happy 550D/T2i club of owners. I use two of the old cameras and as has been said, the 5D3 is too expensive for me to upgrade to. For those who are undertaking this task, my thanks and my hopes are with you that you find success in bringing raw video to those of us who still love creating content with these reliable cameras.

It's not a fake, I've seen one in the wild. There has been an update to the 700D shown, they removed the Q Button too and now there is a sensor in the hand grip that recognizes that the user is about to want to take photographs or shoot video. Something about accelerometers knowing that the camera has gone into motion etc.

Right on!

Is this thread still alive? Or has the idea of a new interface been lost to the abyss?

There have been times where I too thought my battery life was quite poor, but quickly see that 2 or 3 hours had passed since I started testing a new build. Moving in and out of LiveView, pulling rack focus multiple times, watching a timelapse or two in camera or an HDR video shot at 24fps or 60fps, investigating difference in ISO configs, or spending lot's of time working with FPS override, then all of a sudden; dead battery. But it wasn't all of a sudden, some times I have to remind myself that the battery I'm using was also used the day before for an unknown duration.

What I find when I'm in the field working is that I am often able to use a battery all day, and this is while using autofocus (occasionally), shooting raw (upwards of 500 photos captured), record between 8 and 15 minutes of video (some of it HDR), plus all of the false shots where I pull focus, adjust aperture, skip the shot, and then leave the camera to auto-power down in 1 minute.

It would be great if some other users tested their batteries as A1ex has and post the results here so we can move beyond the anecdotal complaints that ML eats batteries, or confirm the cases where it does.

Hey Capitansolo, this looks likely that you are shooting at f1.4. I say that because it appears there is a very narrow focal plain in focus somewhere near the guys back (look at the bottom right of the man's shirt and the grass next to it.) At f1.4 if you are photographing or filming a face, the tip of the nose can be in focus and the eye's won't be - it is that narrow a band of focus. The person who told you to try f2.0 and above is giving you great advice, even f1.8 is a lot easier to work with.

Just watched your short film, nice work. My wish would be for you to add the tags for Magic Lantern to the video and give credit to the tools you used for making this so others who catch it might be inspired.

General Chat / Re: Kicktarter for 5D MK III?

I don't believe a Kickstarter would be appropriate here. There is no tiered payoff incentive available that would entice people to make various donations. What would be given away is very specific to those who own or will own a $3500 camera body, so you are narrowing the number of people this Kickstarter would apply to. I know this could be argued against regarding any endeavor where specialized equipment is required, such as sliders, steadicams, iPhone products, etc., but each of those fund raisers give different tiered products or credits for rewards - in this situation the contributor receives ML which is already free, and that, is that.

I have already made my donation towards the Mark III, I do not own one, nor do I plan on owning one, but I know that the continuing development of ML on all Canon DSLR's benefits ALL of us!

@Francis You might want to try GBDeflicker from Granite Bay Software, the guy has a free, time-limited, evaluation version - and it is for Mac and Windows. Nice first attempt with the flash.
