Another overheat shutdown. Running vid, manual, HD. After about 15mins up-time. With a non-ML card, no overheats. I understand this is a known issue, just FYI with latest.

Just totally jazzed to have ML, I really never thought it would happen while I had the 70D, that I'd be onto another body before it was alpha even. Too cool to have it at all!!
BTW, Nikfreak and other dev's, if you're ever in the Denver or Boulder area, shout me up, drinks on me for finally getting this rolling.

I may post probs with ML, but it's not complaining, I'm actually ecstatic just to have something running after drooling for over a year about it!! YEEHAWW!!!!
QuoteForgot to include this, the temperature on my camera also rises extremely fast, goes from 20°C to 49°C in a few mins

Ditto here. Had an overheat shutdown using ML this weekend. Flashbacks to using the 7D in India some years ago and having to force cool it...
ML menu kicks me out, goes back to LV arbitrarily. Goes right back to ML menu with delete, but then kicks me out random time later.

Display flashes in one-second intervals at all times. RAW vid records to 10-seconds and stops auto.

Sony 32gb C10, U3 94mb/s cards.

Not sure how useful any of that is, but LMK if there's more I can give.

Loaded perfect, first try. So far, all's dandy. Never seem to have problems with ML though (whew...), the T3i and T4i pre-alpha just always worked like butter for me too. Perhaps my camera's see what I do to bricked cell phones when they react wrongly to bad code? Whatever. It keeps 'em in line...  :D

Will report back on tests.

Edit: Late model 70D (Nov 2013, second body), Kodak 1gb SD card (slow as dirt, found on floor of train in south India years ago). Prob meaningless since it loaded and worked like buttah for me.

QuoteMagic Ball says It should be ready in a week or 2 if not sooner...

Weird..., my magic balls says it will be done exactly..., when it's done...

QuoteYou want to get it done, an aps-c camera is your bread and butter.   

It certainly is mine. T3i, 7D, T4i and now the 70D (and I'm on my second 70D body already...)

Shooting the pilot for a comedy series this Sat with it (yes, I'm that confident of its abilities). When ML is alpha, open invite to any devs who worked on it to drinks for a night, on me, if ever in Colorado (or south India where I normally am this time of year..., currently stuck in this bloody frozen hell...)!

QuoteI think the idea is to keep it on the down low till bugs are exterminated...

As well they should. People will try it and complain when they soft brick their bodies. Best keep it under till alpha.

On the T4i the pre-alpha was rock solid for me, for what I was using it for, but I'm asking a lot more from the 70D as are most. Let's just back up our devs while they do what they can to bring ML to life for the 70D.

QuoteToni nothing to share now. I shot 70D mlv yesterday to test write speeds. Got a mlv shot at resolution 1600x680 with something around 2.5GB if I remember correctly...

Still, you got somewhere and somewhere is infinitely better than nowhere!! Right on Nik!

QuoteIf i remember correctly,  With a 64GB 95MB/s Sandisk card,  i was able to shoot over a minute at 1600x600 and roughly 45-55 seconds at 1792xXXX with 2:35:1 aspect ratio.  I went from a 45MB/s card and was told on this forum it would not be much of a difference but it was.  it doubled my recording time.  So the Card you put into the camera does matter.  Lets just hope the Dual AF works well with RAW video.

You got that with RAW? The 70D should be the same as the 6D (meaning write, not meaning sensor of course, seems to me, the 70D should be faster for data, given the crop?)

OMG~!!! I truly thought I'd be onto the next body before anything ever happened for the 70D. I know it's a long way to go yet, but this is the start. THE start!! Yes!!!

I'll drink to that. Heavily tonight... :D

QuoteIt feels like Stripes, where we have to complete basic training ourselves.

I've felt that from the start with the 70D. The T4i came out like butter, 70D seems abandoned and we're already over a year on..., so..., prob up to us. More on this later, but yes, I'm willing to dive in myself on it..

QuoteTom, you could say that about ANY camera.  Not many people upgrade their camera every single time the next iteration comes out.

They do when it's their livelihood and the camera is "upgraded" enough to warrant the features. And the 70D is right in that place where it provides professional results but at a cost that only produces a terse session of expletives when it dives overboard, a housing leaks, or it takes a hit from a rapidly moving projectile (around 2,400fps to be somewhat accurate)

QuoteIndeed it's a virtue... I'm about to sell my 70D to geta 5D2 (or maybe 50D)

Many of us here, who've owned the 70D since its debut and have run ML on previous bodies find ourselves being pretty damn virtuous and in your same position.

My advice would be for people NOT to buy the 70D in hopes of using ML on it. Will be obsoleted by the next thing out before ML is working. Just not enough dev's and too many FW's out there, so ML dev's have to pick a battle and go with what's chosen. Sadly, it's not the 70D.

QuoteI film those types of things too and still haven't yet found a need for a $300 piece of glass which locks up my mirror and corrects for something no one who views my footage either notices or cares about.

Same sentiment here.

Well, sad to see that this is holding up dev, but I have the same things going on in my life and it suddenly made me realize that the dev's also have lives, ups, downs, good, bad, not just sitting with a camera, cable and computer day after day, night after night.

Had a chance to buy a 7DII, but after seeing that they STILL haven't gotten around to an articulating screen (that I've found I can't live without these days), I'm sticking with the 70D. Maybe not be as tough, but it has what I need for the jobs I do. The 7DII, well, it doesn't. So to me, the "pro" camera is the one that gives me saleable output. The 70D does that, the 7DII would not (at least for a lot of the kind of shooting I do). So for me, the 70D IS the "pro" camera. Still.

As a contributor who put his money where his mouth is and helped us all, first, thank you for what you did. It (hopefully) furthered the development of ML for the 70D immensely.

Second, that is reasonable to want to hear something about development, where things stand, what the road blocks are, etc.

... I don't know if it would be a good desicion. What do you think I should consider to stay with the 70D?

Thanks !

Depends on what your output is used for. We had a 7D and went to the T3i (cheap and had ML at the time), then T4i (for AF and ML capability + articulating screen for use where you do NOT want to put it up to your face).

If all you care about is RAW, then perhaps the 7D. But you'll take a LONG step back in AF capability for video. ML will be out soon for the 70D and you have ltd RAW output.
Quote from: ShootMeAlready on August 15, 2014, 10:13:42 PM..... And a 70D with dual iso raw 720p@24fps (when it arrives), auto-focus, with 3X lossless zoom for anti-aliasing, even better still for film ...

When it arrives....

Till then, it's still world-class for film (100% of this with the 70D and no color grading or other post - that's just not my thing)

Got a fist full of Sony 32gb class 10 cards a while back that I use. 94mb/s read, 45mb/s write.

But being full might just have been it. Was also shooting at 24fps FHD, but card filled and had to swap out, I remember that. Just as I was finishing an event. Might have been that. Thanks for the tip, never had issue with that before (losing data as a card filled), but I'll test it out and make sure I swap cards at an opportune time (as I usually do when covering an event that I can't make-up).

developers, any news? you promised to keep us informed on the development of the port :)

BTW it seems if the camera processor was 3X more powerful, then regular mode should use every line, and then it should be the same as 3X zoom mode.  And to improve noise even more you need a 3X bigger sensor, so the adjacent lines are further apart.

That would be a different (and MUCH more expensive) camera, unfortunately. Wish we could hack the hardware like a lappy or desktop....

And I'm going to be on vacation for a week (plus photos if you want.(j/k)) :D

H**l yes!! First and foremost, I assume we're all photogs, so who doesn't want to see vacation pics out of the 70D??? Should be mandatory when people here go on vacation. And not just the standard stuff either, these bodies are capable of brilliance. We can at least live up to that, right?  8)
