Feature Requests / [EOS-M] Focus stacking
« on: November 11, 2013, 06:20:14 PM »
Hi everybody,

it would be useful to add a focus stacking function to the Eos M.
For example: manual focus to point a,  focus to point b, then being able to select how many pictures to take shifting the focus from point a to point b.

Thanks
Stefano

Try this:

BUG present, turn dial to movie mode, start recording.
Now, without stopping recording, turn the dial to photo mode. Now you should be able to take pics.  :o

The 11-22 it's not currently sold in the US, pity because it's razor sharp 

A class 10 is as fast as the type you're talking about, only the bus is different.

My fastest card is a Class 10 branded Mustang.

Btw, Maxotics, I've just tried the M with the USB, basically I tried every function. Just like before.
If I turn the camera on with the lens out BUG present.

If I keep FPS override to OFF is ok, or am I to set it to a determined value?

Ciao from Italy

@Maxotics

"2. DO NOT use USB"

I've never used USB with TL installed.
(But I'm going to try..)

"3. If you go into photo mode, remember to TURN OFF your 24FPS, or whatever, video mode setting."

I've never used 24FPS, as we use PAL in Europe which is 25fps. The only thing I changed was fps ovverride to record time lapses, great function, but then I always set it to off; in my experience a "clean" setup, after a fresh install, doesn't stop the bug from occurring.

I tried three different memory cards, one sd and three micro sd with adapter. Bug showed up in the same way.
I've just finished testing  with another SD, never used before.
PC format of the card>Canon format> download and copy latest TL>On camera flag to make bootable>extended lens>turn on> BUG present.

What is really interesting imho, is the repeatability of the bug with the lens position of the 11-22 at startup.

Lens extended>turn on>bug ON (100%), retract> extend> bug OFF.
Lens retracted>turn on> extend> bug OFF.

Lens extended>remove SD>turn on>bug OFF(100%)

When I bought the M it had the old firmware, but the 11-22 worked perfectly, even if they updated the firmware also to increase the 11-22 compatibility. I didn't have any issue, apart from the slower AF.

Investigation continues.
Ciao to everybody

Zooming in - out changes nothing in my experience. The 11-22 has a positional electric switch, in facts if you turn the camera on with the lens retracted, no focusing is possible, and a message appears telling that you must extend the lens  to take pics.

I low level formatted a sd card, then I checked the sd with eos card; no bootable and developers flags.
 Then I installed TL.
When I checked it with eoscard, bootable and developers were flagged.

I've never used usb with TL installed, but the bug is present, always, if I turn on the camera with the lens "out".

Hope it helps

The 11-22 looks almost identical to the 18-55.

Have a look HERE

You can keep it extended if you prefer, like I do, to have the camera always ready.

Hi guys,

I've found a reliable way to trigger the shutter bug. For me it's working 100% of the times.
I own the 11-22 wideangle.
This lens has a retracted and an extended position, this one is mandatory to take pictures.

If I turn the M on with the lens in the extended position, there's always the shutter bug; then I have three options to get rid of the problem :
1 retract and extend the lens, with the camera turned on.
2 force a sensor cleaning. (As I wrote in a previous post)
3 detach and reattach the lens. (Well known).

It doesn't sound strange to retract the lens, as it probably resets its power, but it's strange (to me) that everytime I turn on the camera  with the lens extended the bug is there, even if before the camera worked perfectly.

After a further investigation, I was able to get rid of the shutterbug, only by removing the lens. After that I didn't have any shutter bug, but the camera with the nov. 5 release keeps hanging when I switch to movie mode.

I just formatted a 4Gb card, that had been flagged by Eoscard. I re-checked it with eos card: no flags.
I installed the latest TL, and flagged the camera firmware.

TL loads correctly but... No way to take a picture. The shutter bug is always present. Now I want to check it with a card that has never seen the eos card before.

Hi everybody,

so, if the eoscard job really does something strange, apart from the developer and the bootable settings, is it still possible to run TL without even touching the eoscard utility?

If the answer is "yes", it seems to me that we can't keep the firmware flagged anymore on the camera, with the ability to swap memory cards with or without TL, because the camera will be looking for the autoexce.bin in both cases. (So, if it doesn't find it, the tight loop will be triggered)
Am I right, or I'm missing something?  :o

Thanks in advance

Sorry for my English   :-[

I meant that ML, once installed, is sticky like a glue, you can't get rid of it easily.

"You can't remove the ML folders and files by using your computer delete function"

Even if I low level format the card from Windows?
Wow sticky!

Hi everybody!
I'm still investigating on the shutterbug, to find a possible sequence of events ALWAYS triggering the problem.
I'd like just to add some more info here, maybe it's useful to somebody.

Shutterbug present, deleted ML folders, *.bin, *.fir.
Installed latest TL, turned on, bug present.
Removed lens, take photo, turn off, turn on, bug present.  :o
Then I tried something else;

Unflagged "bootdisk" and "eos_develop" with EosCard 1.40
Turn on, no TL running, shutterbug present.
Remove lens, take photo, turn off, turn on, shutterbug!
Removed card.
Camera works perfectly without card.

Low level card format, flagged Eos_develop and bootdisk copy TL files, turn on camera, shutterbug present.
Removed battery, battery in place, turn on camera, bug present.
Reset lens and camera settings, camera works.
Switch power, bug present.
Today it seems impossible to take a picture with TL.
Hope it helps!
Ciao to everybody
Stefano

Hi everybody,

today I started playing with the FPS override to make a 0.2 FPS time lapse video, one of the most useful functions of ML, imho.
As I planned to keep the camera working for a while, I decided to set up the energy saving too, but I couldn't keep the display always turned off; it kept turning on and off at every second of recorded video.
Is there a way to avoid that?

Thanks in advance
Stefano

Hi everybody,
first of all I wish to thank all the developers and contributors to this incredible project. It's fantastic!

I think I've found another way to clear the shutter bug lock-up;
I generally keep the sensor autocleaning off, but if the shutter locks due to the bug, I can simply unlock it by starting a sensor cleaning.
So far, this method worked.

Hi everybody, I'm new to this forum, this is my first post.
Today I installed the ML in my brand new M with firm.2.0.2.
 I thought I could have some little probability of "no shutter bug" due to the new lens I own, the 11-22 wide.
No way; after a bit of tampering with the menus, the bug showed up.
I quit testing, due to the temp warning: a red rectangle with 128 units (degrees?) .
Is it safe, or I run the risk of frying the cpu?
Thanks in advance  ;D
