Can any one give their experience how DualISO works in lets say weddings when you just take pictures of people moving/dancing, does it introduce any artefact for moving subject?

If you cared to read how DualISO works you should know the answer. Your answer is in the first post of this topic.

This is really interesting!

I would like to see something like this calculator into ML as a separate module, or better yet, inside MLV module as a menu option... I would code it myself, but I'm too busy atm... I will see it.

looks like you didn't bother to read or understand the commit. The code do no harms, it only plays with lcd brightness. Stop all your drama, please.

Hey guys...

I was thinking about writing an updated FAQ for ML in my spare time, but english is not my primary language. If you agree with this, I will need someone to review it.

I love to see how some people go daydreaming about things that doesn't exist and asks to develop a port for something that is not known yet... Yet they seems to believe in their own reality and begs about it.

This thread should be already closed.

The installations instructions are 3 steps long, and they still cause problems!

I wrote a rant about people who cannot reproduce these steps sucessfully, but I decided not to post. Altough I still think that they shouldn't be using ML.

The fir file enables the bootflag in camera. Making a card bootable is another thing.

SRSLY?  :o

If I understood correctly your post, you meant the LCD screen.

If you're talking about the difference in colors/gamma/white balance from the camera lcd to pc screen, you should calibrate your monitor (supposing its a IPS panel).

Hi guys.

Interested in trying partition alignment on my Lexar 1000x 32GB.  If this results in repeatable speed boost across the board this may be worthy of a thread in its own right with clear instructions for Win/Mac.  For the mean time...

I'm on Mac OS X Mountain Lion.  Here's what gdisk reports about the Lexar:

--

Disk /dev/disk2: 62521200 sectors, 29.8 GiB
Logical sector size: 512 bytes
Disk identifier (GUID): 401BD3D8-8D0B-494B-A00D-87E8368CE132
Partition table holds up to 128 entries
First usable sector is 34, last usable sector is 62521166
Partitions will be aligned on 1-sector boundaries
Total free space is 1004 sectors (502.0 KiB)

Number  Start (sector)    End (sector)  Size       Code  Name
   1              63        62520191   29.8 GiB    0700  Microsoft basic data

I believe I can use iPartition to adjust the start sector of the card.  Ideally what sector should it be?  Or is the card currently aligned?

Thanks!

Set 2048 as start sector.

Hey a1ex and g3gg0, there's something that maybe you're missing. All flash cards (SD/CF/SSD/etc) have a fixed erase block size.

If there's no partition and the card is just formatted with filesystem then it is ok. But for those who have a partition table on them, the partition must be aligned with EBS to have optimal performance (See articles on partition alignment for SSD)

All partitions of the cards I've tested were misaligned out-of-the-box. Besides Dane-elec and Sandisk I couldn't recall the other brands. I couldn't recall the numbers but I did see performance improvements.

Instead of trying to find EBS for all cards, I suggest aligning the partition at 1MB, so it should fit almost (if not all) EBS.

An utility to check alignment: http://www.tcpdump.com/kb/os/windows/disk-alignment/all-pages.html
(Or using MS System Information - msinfo32.exe) http://whirlpool.net.au/wiki/checking_ssd_alignment

Instructions for Windows XP here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929491
Linux users should set fdisk to show entry/units to sectors and create a partition with starting sector 2048.
Of course you can use any partition manager to move/resize the beginning of the partition.

Regards,

Rodrigo

I'm glad to hear that downgrade is possible.

I have two Pisen batteries and I'm going to wait until someone can confirm it works or not.

They are all the same firmware (USA/UK/Australia). Besides, I couldn't find download link for 1.1.3 on Canon Australia.

Hi guys,

According to Canon Australia, once you upgraded your 5D3 to 1.2.1, you cannot rollback... (https://www.canon.com.au/Personal/Support-Help/Support-News/Firmware-Updates/EOS-5D-Mark-III-Firmware-Update-1-2-1)

Also, there's some issues with third party batteries not working anymore. See http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=14354.msg262650#msg262650

I'm not going to upgrade until ML team speaks about 1.2.1.
