Wow, $100 for increase in LV resolution. With no HDMI output, and no focus peaking in many scenarios, so camera is basically useless for other things than stop-motion.

When you steal information from website, it's nice to at least provide original source.

I think it's about sata, not ata ... The last standard of sata is sata3 (750 MB/s)

In case of R5 it's not even SATA (CFast), but Canon skipped directly to PCI Express / NVME (CFexpress).

Oh yeah lol, I miss understood. However there are many examples doing CFexpress to SATA on YouTube. Shouldn't be a big deal.

Are you sure? CFast to SATA do exists, as CFast uses SATA protocol. But CFexpress is NVME (PCI Express), that's why I wonder if there will be similar trick possible.
But even if possible - probably a little harder due to PCIe signalling requirements.

By the way - there are three types of CFexpress cards - A, B, C. They differ in physical dimensions and number of PCIe lines. I can't find any information which one will be supported here, but I bet for type A, which is physically similar to SD card.

I just got reminded about CF-to-SATA thread. And I was going to post here that finally we will be able to attach HDDSSD to our cameras, as there are CFast to SATA adapters (CFast is in mostly a fancy connector for SATA).

And then I checked again and it's CFexpress  :o Didn't even notice that there's a new standard already. PCIe v3 x4 / NVME - I wonder if someone will make  m.2 NVME -> CFexpress adapter  ;)
They are a couple of CFexpress -> (m.2 | pcie) adapters, and while I can't find any photo of "the other side" of pcbs, all PCIe traces seems to run directly between connectors.

What does this mean? Is it a good new?

That's why I suggested some time ago to replace "Magic Lantern Rescue" header with different string, at least for new developments where there's no real ML build - as this may suggest otherwise. Not that I experienced it when posted similar shots for EOS R on twitter  ;).

"Custom code test" would get people a little less excited.

Just one quote:
Internally recorded and uncropped 8K RAW Recording up to 29.97 fps with Dual Pixel CMOS AF, and HDR-PQ Recording (H.265) capability.

Well, price will hurt for sure.

I guess our two new colleagues can't see the difference between EOS 5DS R and EOS R5.

MLV on 40D  8) Even if that's single frame, congrats. I'll check it just for fun, after whole covid crap ends (dad has pristine 40D with only ~10k frames).
Wish I had enough knowledge to move R forward, but with time that I can spent, I'll maybe finally upgrade my cam to latest FW and update the stubs...

Aside from technical improvements, I'll be switching for sure in future (unless they screw something really bad). Missing thumb wheel was hard for me to live with, even if I got used to after a year ;)
I just fear the pricing, as if those are not just marketing words, I believe it will be more expensive that R was.

Maybe he formatted card to FAT32.

As for Twitter on home page, I accidentally posted this in EOS M thread  :-[

The code is there, but it's commented - so it was intentional.
Maybe it stopped working? I checked and current widget embed code is slightly different than one on site:

Does anyone know if ML for EOS R is expected to enable 10bit recording in 1080p over HDMI? I love the look of 10bit in C-log, but I don’t have the hardware for 4K.

ML for R (or anything Digic 7+) is not expected to exist any time soon, and you're asking about specific features...

So far we have only proven that it's possible to run custom code.
I guess @a1ex that  "Magic lantern rescue" is misleading and should be replaced with another name for early development ports. Just a string swap may keep people a little less excited.

Can ML currently allow this on the EOS R?

Is ML for R mentioned anywhere?

I need to upgrade (and dump) 1.3 and 1.4 and hopefully update stubs for 1.4. Yup, I'm still on 1.2.

This info was published before those firmware were even mentioned elsewhere, so I assumed it was an error.
But yes, that makes sense.

R firmware 1.3:
Firmware Version 1.3.0 incorporates the following enhancement:
1. Support for the RF24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM lens has been added.

RP firmware 1.2:
Firmware Version 1.2.0 incorporates the following enhancement and fix:
1. Support for the RF24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM lens has been added.
2. Corrects a phenomenon in which the top of some captured images may be dark during high-speed sync shooting with an external flash.

No mentions about fixes for recent vulnerabilities.

Then it worked fine.  In theory it has preserved the hg hashes as I chose the option to "Annotate commits with the hg hash as git notes in the hg namespace".  Haven't tested thoroughly, but you can get what look like useful mappings of Git commits to hg hashes via: git notes --ref hg list
Yup, that should work. We are migrating SVN workflow to Git and protocol v1 gets overwhelmed if you have too many tags in your repo (and we are creating a ton of them every day). Git notes was found to be one of better solutions for this problem - you can search them easily.

Wonder what will be next: 100D? :P

Great work!

I asked Eyal Itkin directly and from what he told me - they tested this only on 80D. List of affected cameras was prepared by Canon themselves.

EOS R firmware version 1.3.0 and earlier

Hmm, I'm sure the latest public one is 1.2.0 ::)

Anyway, seems like a possible entrypoint to enable bootflag on R.

I thought about PR into unified which this is based on ;)
Obviously taking this as a new branch in ML repo is different story - and may encourage others to give it a try.

I really need to find some time and dig for stubs on R to try this. I hope for next month - depends mostly on how long will take me to migrate all stuff from server running in my closet to full-blown rack setup in my parents house ("just IT things")  :)
You know that you work on too many items at once when you have multiple kanban boards just for your own projects...

Do you have a pull request available? It might help others to chime in
I don't think that this will be ready for PR anytime soon  :)

I fixed it! (well, almost)

Problem was with aperture motor itself. After disassembling it (it's held to aperture assembly by few plastic tabs and 4 solder joints to ribbon), using some wd40 for cleaning it up (just two electromagnets and pivot that should not touch magnets) aperture works OK.
Camera will still drop Err01 when I'll do some shots on f/16-f/20, but that seems to be a bit different problem. Seems that it's not aware of real aperture position since it has only one sensor. And it's done by simple wire spring (not-)touching metal element - contact is broken by pin moving with aperture itself. I noticed it was barely touching when fully open, so I slightly bent it and that made it working more reliably.

My theory that err01 is now caused by this sensor is backed up by behaviour - I can play how long I want in movie mode, it won't fail. It will fail in photo mode always after photo is successfully made with proper exposition - when it opens aperture back and maybe overshot now? After i bent spring, it may lose contact for fraction of second when going back from fully closed...

Anyway, it works even on R high-fps mode when closed at least to F/8 without errors, so it's usable again  :)

Thats why I asked my question - in Polish :) (I understand German enough for his post)
For 'when' question no wonder answer was rude. For donations, it was short but not rude.
Maybe it's better to remove those posts asking for dates, instead of replying like this every time...

Warum so eine unfreundliche Antwort auf eine gute Frage?
Która odpowiedź jest niegrzeczna?*

English, please.  ::)

Sorry, had to.
