Tested briefly after adding but seemed to be working. Not sure what delay is best but added this to cartridge cancel:
Code: [Select]
    if (one_more_hack)
        void (*CartridgeCancel)() =
        cam_eos_m ? 0xffa7e7d8 :
        cam_5d3_113 ? 0xff17fd68 :
        cam_5d3_123 ? 0xff181340 :

Both are useful.

Possible. Check scripts included in Mlv app. Yould tweak those directly without recompiling.

Chroma smooth 3x3 is not that bad either.

Thanks for sharing findings.
You can enable auto focus in hack section under raw video. Check under asvanced snd enable af on. Not very reliable.

Great. Same that fixed my camera twice  :P.

Thanks for reports. Will take a look once in a while when I get more time again.

Thanks for posting your workflow around using a phone.

end  for example, while 2K,2.5k,2.8K display correctly when using a phone; only 2K,2.8K and 5K display on my monitor (But with heavy crop)
Define display correctly using a phone? Full real time view? Framing? Cropped view?

All your saying are valid points. Most stuff have been tried to be fixed at some point although hdmi probably hasn't been explored as heavily as  other areas yet.

Exact centering, at least to me, is hard to get. Cmos 5 and 7 maybe also modifying ratios could get you there.

I would like a detailed description how correct display is working over a phone? What program is used, connectors etc.

Regarding customized buttons. There are a few possibilities now for INFO and SET. Would be nice to hear what people in general would use shortcuts for.

Nice. What about mac  8). Since linux is there, maybe not that hard porting this?

When using hdmi we could probably make use of the SET button too. Maybe add a hdmi customize section?
Could you describe some scenario which would be good here also using the SET button? Maybe switching between aperture and iso? Or false color, or something else?

So info button don´t get you straight to the dropdown list? Need to check some more here.

Added a new version which makes use of SET button under customize button.

Uploaded a new build which adds a few alternatives to INFO and tap display.

Regarding your description of conflicts with display function, Menu and INFO buttons I probably won´t change my mofications as they have been done for reasons working with this specific build. Probably possible to achieve same or similar or even better handling with customize button section.

Here´s a which let´s you select INFO button and let´s you choose between Zebras or false color. Is this how you mean?

Just tested

On my end, the 2.5k Preset still gives pink frames when using hdmi with monitor, 2 times out of 3.
So, the monitor works fine with 5K frtp, 2K, 2.8k

It is worth noting that, on an hdmi monitor (or Phone with hdmi capture dongle),  the preview for 2.5K and 2.8k are uncentered crops of the actual recorded image. So unless you are recording a landscape or a general frame without any particular point of interest, there will be some randomness in your framing...

An ongoing related issue:

When enabling 7th ML Menu>LV Display Presets (2,3 or 4)
And then 3rd ML Menu>customized buttons>INFO selectable (OFF)

It is possible to use the INFO button to toggle between different Overlay presets (2nd ML Menu), to toggle Zebra or False Colors on and off, for example.

But then, the MENU Button stops giving the menu where you have access to the Aperture, Shutter and Audio Levels settings. It is possible to change 3rd ML Menu>customized buttons>gain (aperture only) to get access to the aperture, but we still lose shutter access and audio level settings. The MENU issue had been addressed at some point, but it seems like it is there again (has been like this for at least the past 3 builds).
False Colors and /or Zebra are a must to have consistency between takes. It would be nice to have a way not to have to go to the ML menu before each take to turn those off.

You could ask ZEEK what settings he use for the 2.5k preset.

As said earlier. You can experiment with centre framing by tweaking cmos regs by tapping "presets" menu and enter "advanced". If you get better centering write your numbers here.

You could probably customize info button to select zebras etc. Don't have much time here to do this. Code for customization lies in crop_rec.c.
Not sure what the issues are you are describing wirh MENU. How is it suppose to work and is that working so with other eosm builds? Is it working with official nightly build for instance?

Common to find dead pixela.
masc coded a way to fix those pixels in mlv app.

Dxo rates eos m sensor higher than 700d

I expect more or less no visible difference given test setup is the same. Anybody having both cameras could post two cr2 files for us to compare. Needless to say. Same test condition needed.

Recording with a preset isn't benchmarking. Recordings will probably show the same but the hacks will allow for longer or continuous shooting.

Also, I noticed that every preset uses a different center (Those scan different parts of the sensor) and if I use the 2.5K Centered preset as a reference, the presets are often a little to the right, with the 5K preset scanning towards the lower portion of the sensor (Which at least give you a chance to get the eyes in better focus if filming a person when using an older lens).

It would be good to disclose the exact offset figures, as this would allow people to choose the right lens accordingly. Unless you use an ef-m 32mm f1.4 or, to a slightly lesser extent, ef-m 22mm f2; you don't get edge to edge sharpness. So, if you use a Helios or a c-mount lens, you will get uneven bokeh and vignetting, as those vintage lenses get softer and blurrier very quickly as soon as you deviate from the center. (Not too apparent if you do nature shots, but a lot more if you frame a subject off center.)
It is possible to alter offset with cmos registry. They are present in the crop rec submenu under advanced I believe. Don't emember exactly which two cmos regs but shouldn't ve too hard to find out.

Added a new version:

Includes these changes:

And also changed edmac channel which is supposed to have a positive impact on hdmi out. When using hdmi out fix this first.
"To fix that PINK HDMI screen: in ML tab 3, go to 'customized buttons', Disable x3 Crop Toggle and Focus Aid"ZEEK

Also beware that when using "Lvface+aewb" hack it will affect fine-shutter tuning.

According to ZEEK this version will give zero dropped frames for most presets when using hdmi out. If all working ok I´ll replace the other versions to only this.

Just so I can avoid having to test everything empirically, If I were to start with the 2.8k preset, and lower the resolution from there, regarding raw buffers and what is happening behind the scenes, should I theoretically get the same behavior as selecting the 2k preset, for example?
Realizing height is probably causing corruption with hdmi out. 2.8k runs max 1190 height whereas 2.5k up t around 1400. Probably too much too handle for hdmi.
