Don't use ML with the 1.0.4 firmware. It shouldn't run, but who knows what canon did

It shouldn't run or it should but don't risk it? In any case, I won't try it. Are you guys planning on making it work on 1.0.4 one day though? It is a significant firmware update in that it fixes a bug that has plagued many T4i users (myself included) for a while now. So on the one hand, we're all happy that Canon finally resolved the issue, but on the other hand, we're now worried that we will never get ML to work with it... LOL ;)

good question and did anyone notice how the t4i has been dropped from Cannons camera line on their website in an attempt to sell the t5i lol

I wonder what changes have been made to the firmware and if maybe a better build for ML will be possible with this actual firmware release?

Edit found some info on the firmware :)

Firmware Version 1.0.4 incorporates the following fixes:

1. Fixes the following phenomena which may occur when the camera is used in combination with certain lens models equipped with a stepping motor.
Affected lenses: EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM / EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM.
1. The camera may freeze in rare instances if you try to shoot with a lens cap attached or meter a subject in low contrast in Live View (or Movie) shooting.
2. Fine focus adjustment may not be possible in Remote Live View on the EOS Utility software.
2. Fixes a phenomenon in which some SD card products are not recognized by the camera.
3. Corrects some misspellings displayed on the menu screen.

You just made my day! I knew this occasional freezing issue was firmware-related. I kept telling people not to bother returning their T4i's and to just be patient for a Canon firmware update. I haven't really had the issue lately and was starting to believe that it was just a battery issue (when the battery was new and hadn't been used in several months while it was in the box). It does make sense about the lens cap and low contrast though. As far as I can remember, it only ever happened with either the lens cap on or in low contrast and low light situations. I'm so happy right now! I just hope ML will be compatible with the new firmware. I won't install it until I know ML will work on it. Thanks!

Could it be possible to bypass this error with magic lantern?

And what's about that flickering in movie mode? Or i'm the only one who has this problem?

I'm not an expert, but I don't think that's related to the firmware or to ML. You should do what it says. Clean the contacts. Remove the lens and try another one if you can. If the problem persists, contact Canon.

I know that it is not in 650V, I asked whether it would make ML.

I don't know, but I hope so. It would be a cool extra feature to have, but I have a feeling Canon needed to remove it because it conflicted with the new on-sensor phase detections pixels added on their new Hybrid-CMOS sensors. They probably couldn't have digital crop zoom and the on-sensor phase detection pixels at the same time/place. My guess is that if ML is able to add it, they would need to do so by disabling the on-sensor phase detection pixels. It will most likely be one or the other, but not both at the same time. That's just my theory though. I don't really know much about this stuff.

Phhoenyxx  that is for the 650d digital zoom will not be?

Digital Crop Zoom is ONLY on the T3i/600D! BOTH the T4i/650D AND the T5i/700D DON'T HAVE IT!

Will ML be able to add it to the T4i/650D and the T5i/700D? Maybe, but it's not a default feature of those cameras.

I'm not currently running ML, but I recently got a T4i/650D, so that's the camera I will be running it on eventually. It's my first DSLR. It was a wedding gift from my wife. Men don't get an engagement ring, so she figured it was only fair to get me a focus ring instead!  :D

Dont understand the rudeness.... If I was wrong.. Just say it... People make mistakes, get over it

The rudeness is because I am sick and tired of seeing such a big lie being perpetuated for this long. I feel bad for all the people who read this misinformation and decided to buy a T5i thinking that digital crop zoom has returned, only to find out that it hasn't after they spent their hard earn money.

tell whether the function is implemented digital zoom while recording video, which is in the 600d and 700d, is it worth to wait for it to 650d?

OMG... For the last time, there is no digital crop zoom on the T5i/700D. All the sites that said so were wrong. I have never seen a lie perpetuated for this long before. I feel bad for all the people who decided to buy a T5i/700D after reading such misinformation thinking that the digital crop zoom had returned. It hasn't. Get over it. If you want it, get the T3i/600D.

I wonder if Canon is the one who started this lie in order to convince people to buy the T5i/700D over the now less expensive yet identical T4i/650D...

I can verify that there are 3 zoom modes on the t5i.... As long as the face tracking auto focus mode is not enabled and you have to be in live view. You get 1, 5x and 10x...

Since my internet is down, I had to do this all from my phone. But it shows me using the touchscreen to jump across all 3 zoom modes.

Not a valid youtube URL

OMG! That's just the zoom used to fine tune focus. It's not the digital crop zoom from the T3i. You can't take pictures in those zoom modes. The T4i also has those zooms. RTFM, people!

New is allways better.
     - Barney

And you get 50€ cashback, so in the end it's even cheaper as a 650D with the 18-55mm STM lense

Two problems with that:

1- New is not always better (but Barney is amazing).
2- There's nothing really new about it except for the 5 instead of a 4.

And I don't know where you're getting your prices from, but I got my T4i with the 18-135mm IS STM (a $600 lens) for less than the T5i with the 18-55mm IS STM. In fact, I got my combo for less than the T5i body alone.

And that's the reason why canon discontinued the 650D but not the 600D ;)

They should have never released the T5i, not the way they did anyway. If they wanted to release a new STM lens, that's fine, but release it as a standalone product. There was no need for such a similar camera. If you're going to release a new camera, make sure it offers more than a gimmicky firmware update.

Regardless, I'm glad I got a great deal on my T4i with 18-135 IS STM lens. I also prefer its name... T4i... Touch4input...  :D

3x in video mode has been added back to t5i, a feature from t3i.  This is huge for video.  Makes lenses much more useful.

No, it hasn't. I'm so tired of reading this misinformation all over the place. The sites that mentioned this did so before they even got a T5i in their hands. It was wishful thinking seeing as how the T5i was/is the worst upgrade in camera history. Had Canon re-added digital crop zoom, it would have been a marginal upgrade. Both Canon and DPReview clearly state that this was not re-added. Read the manual. If you want digital crop zoom, get a T3i. If you want a Hybrid CMOS sensor, get a T4i/T5i/SL1. If you already have a T5i and want digital crop zoom, pray that the ML team can add it to the T4i/T5i/SL1.
