Hum. If not using the silent-picture you can just press the live view button to turn off live view. Don't forget to turn off image preview from canon menu. There you go - full resolution timelapse without LCD turning on. I tested this right now with build 24th April. Works.

Dont forget to turn off live view by just press the lv-button (thats why you still get preview even if preview is off).

Yes, but now you are shooting with the shuttermecanism mechanichly activated for each photo, or..?

I want to shoot sequenses for timelapes without moving the mirror for each shot to save the camera from several thousands of movements in the mirror when shooting many timleapse sequenses per week.

The silent picture won't help me as I need fullframes for my timelapses to be able to make "fake dollyslides" and other effects. Hopefully the 24th+ nightly will help because the problem now is that the LCD off just have settings like "Turn off after x Seconds" and there seem to be a bug that turns the LCD on again a second after each shot (even if preview is tunred off" and it turns LCD on haf a second before taking the shot as well...


I was testing now tihe the nightly from: 2014-04-25 00:10:08 +0200 and I still get Power on on the LCD for a short time before and after each shot...

To shoot with mirror up:
load the silent module (this will enable silent pics from live view)
The silent picture settings will be found under camera. Just turn it on, and then use the intervalometer.
(unfortunately the resolution will only be 1880x1250 or 2152x1076 if you zoom in 5x/10x before taking the pic. The latter is to recommend if you don't want aliasing artefacts, but you loose the full frame image since this will only be a crop.)

To powersave:
There is a setting in "Powersave in LiveView"
just set the turn off LCD to 20min (or whatever), and if you do time-lapse with silent pics, the LCD will turn off immediately

This works in the 24th nightly (before that it was a bug with the powersaving).
Hope that helped.

should be an option somewhere in LV settings to set the LCD to off... cant remember exactly where and i dont have my camera at hand sorry.

Hi!


I recently startet using ML in my photography because of the great benefits of in camera intervalometer, extended bracketing possibilities and other fetatures that helps my photography end reduces the need of external gadgets.


Im trying to get the camera to shoot with the intervalometer with open mirror but not activating the LCD screen, and have yet not found a way to accomplish this. The reason I want to do this is to save the shutter mechanism while shooting long sequences for timelapses and also to increase battery lifetime as any activation of the LCD steals battery time.

Anyone?
