Nicely shot, can I ask what settings you were using to get 60fps? Thanks

This is really nice, the shot looking up the tree was my favourite, lovely colours! Intrigued to give this a try myself :)

Is anyone here using a Wi-Fi SD card with their EOS M? Please could someone recommend me one, I'd really like to be able to transfer RAW to my phone and edit in Snapseed (supports RAW). Thanks!!

Lies, damned lies, benchmarks.
Use photo mode -> Start benchmark -> Press Play button

Ahah! Read 108.3 MB/s, Write 87.2 MB/s. Thanks a lot Walter, I guess they don't really mean much I was just worried that something was amiss with my camera :)

I'm not sure if this is a problem but my CF benchmarks at 152 MB/s Read, 134 MB/s Write but on my 7D I only get 42.4 MB/s Read, 64.8 MB/s Write?

Doesn't seem right to me, generally I get around 70+ MB/s whilst recording and it seems to be quite stable.

Edit - Re-ran the test in Movie Mode 1080p24 (was in the main camera screen before) and got 81.5 MB/s Read, 66.2  MB/s Write which sounds better, is that the best I can expect from a 7D?

Komputerbay 1066x 64GB Card

I'd recommend a Komputerbay 64GB Professional Compact Flash card 1066X or above, from what I've read you get the best speed from the 64GB not the 128GB. So two or more 64GB's may be your best bet!

There are multiple aspect ratios and resolutions to choose from, have a read through the 7D thread for more information and check out this video (not mine) for the workflow,

I found 2.0.5 to produce sharper images, I downgraded to run ML which seemed to cause soft-focus on my 7D, but the benefits of ML are worth it... Maybe just me though.

I also picked up a EOS-M recently, after using Magic Lantern on my 650D and now 7D I had to try it out - as yourself I was worried about the shutter release issue but I have not experienced it either!

I've yet to put the camera to use yet but have picked up the EOS-M to EF-S Adapter so I can use my current lenses,

Very clear photos! What ISO difference did you use?

I get this same problem on my 7D with mlv_rec, as OP I have to reboot my camera to be able to take photos or I see 'BUSY' - saying that I haven't waited for X amount of time to see if it fixes itself. Happened on my 650D also!

Will post up the same information you requested from the OP to see if it can aid troubleshooting?

Probably something wrong with the memory backend. Find a way to reproduce and submit a bug report.

The strange thing is I had the same issue with my 650D (only when recording with a 50mm f1.8 on that one though!).. Different cards.

I'll try and reproduce it and add it to the bug report.

Anyone got any idea why after recording RAW I get BUSY shown on the screen and have to turn it off and on to take photos?

Sorry I am looking at purchasing a 7D. I see that it does RAW in video quite nicely, but does it do dual iso yet?

It does have Dual ISO. I've only just tested it on mine so I'm not sure whether they come out ok! Someone else will have to confirm.

Does anyone have tips for soft focus? On 2.0.5 it was sharp, now it seems to sometimes have soft focus - sometimes its fine.

I have installed Magic Lantern on my 7D 2.0.3, all is well. However I feel my AutoFocus isn't very sharp - I've read to remove the small 3V battery and leave it out for a minute and it should fix that.

My question is am I safe to do this with ML installed? I don't see why not but I don't want to break anything.

The movie restart is a known issue.

Could anyone tell me when processing 7D Raw, do I need to do any Chroma smooth? If someone could post a small tutorial on what they do that would be awesome!

< 20 Bucks

Thanks, I do have one but its quite old and slow. I have already ordered a USB 3 one delivery tomorrow - just wondered if I could do it all now. No problem!

Sorry for the novice question, can I install 2.0.3 and ML without a CF Reader? All through the inbuilt USB? I think I read no.

Very well done, great film work - you guys deserve way more views than what you have! What settings did you use on your 7D? (just bought one).

Short answer - in terms of speed, if you get a good copy it's OK. In terms of reliability, the 64gb version is much better. Unless a larger card is essential for longer recordings, a bunch of 64s is safer as if one dies you aren't totally USC. Eggs - basket - etc.

I'm running 64gb 1066x cards on 7D bodies without any problem, but realistically since the CF bus in the 7D isn't too hot, they benchmark the same as the 1000x.

Great thank you! I don't really need 128GB at the moment, I've been surviving on my 650D with a 32GB Card although I can easily fill it 3x over.

Will go for the 64GB for better performance and cheaper cost :)

Could anyone confirm whether this card will work fine with ML RAW (I presume so but does anyone use one)

Well, in the EXPO menu it shows
- White Balance
-Picture Style
-Expo Lock
-Expo Presets
-Expo Override

but no »ETTR« …

And under Intervalometer menue is
- Take a pic ervery…
-Start trigger
-Start after
-Stop after
-Auto ExpoRamp LRT Holy Grail … IS MISSING
-Manual Focus Ramp


As above, make sure you enable ETTR under the Modules tab, not sure about ExpoRamp.

General Chat / Re: Best upgrade from Canon 650D

You can do 720p continuous raw on the 650d, you should get a better sd card.

The resolution I record in is better than 720p isn't it? I have a 95mb/s card and am maxing it out at 40mb/s (the camera cannot go faster). or am I mistaken that 1476x626 is worse than 1280x720 (I prefer the letterbox aspect ratio) and surely a 7D at 1728×972 has a much better quality than a 650D at 1476x626 - where I shoot has low light and the 650D seems to struggle sometimes.. here's an example of what I have filmed on my 650D.



Sorry for the two completely different subjects.

I upgraded from 600D to 7D, go for it. It still has one of the fastest burst rates of Canon dslr's short of the 1D series, and it's cheaper than ever since it was just discontinued. It has over 370 MB raw buffer memory as well, which gives you some great lengths on raw recordings. The CF speed tops out ~81 MB/s, and the 7D's weather-proofing is a major plus when doing videography.

Thanks for your advice :)

At the moment here in the United Kingdom the prices haven't dropped, I'd probably buy a import model anyway as they are significantly cheaper (£900 vs £600). It definitely seems like the best upgrade that's within my budget, I'd go for the 70D if it had Magic Lantern support.

I'm going to wait for the 7D Mark II to launch, see it's price and if it's too much for me then hopefully the 7D will drop price again.

Anyone got some input on whether I should go ahead and buy 7D (Used/Second Hand)? I've seen the 7D Mk II is due out next month but that looks to be way over my budget and may never get Magic Lantern (??)...


General Help Q&A / Re: ML menu on 7D displayed as cells of a table
« on: August 14, 2014, 12:49:35 AM »
Hi, I just started learning to use ML. Many thanks for all the developers who create this wonderful software.
I have put on my 7D a recent nightly build ML firmware. Trying to configure the menu, the menu display changed: instead of line menu it suddenly took the form of a table where each menu line became a cell. I had to restart ML defaults. I searched on the forum for a mention of such a thing but I did not find.
Is there a command which switches the display between lines and cells? where? Thanks.

Press the 'Menu' button  :)
