Both cameras are using Sandisk Extreme CF cards (60mb/s), and the recording is just .H264 not RAW or ML RAW. I dont shoot with any auto functions at all, except perhaps Auto Int/Ext for the camera audio. All exposure and WB settings are manual. The file lengths are usually several minutes at least as the specific example ive linked was an interview situation.

I was thinking more about what DeafEyeJedi said and thought that i would add that one camera is approx. 4 years old and the other approx. 3 years old. I had shot for about 1 year on Canon firmware and had never seen this problem before. Similarly I then shot with ML for about 1.5 years before coming across this phenomenon.

By kind of eliminating a few different factors, I guess for the fault to occur on two different cameras of very different ages with different lenses attached, then other than the firmware could it possibly be the CF cards that are failing? The cards would be at least two years old by now. It just seems a freakish coincidence that two cards would be failing at the same time. The only real common element to the situation is the firmware.

That is probably the test that I havent done DeafEyeJedi, because I love ML too much and really dislike shooting without it! But i suppose I will need to bite the bullet and run some tests in vanilla Canon firmware.

Feature Requests / Mapping Magic Zoom to the half-shutter button on 5dMKIII
« on: December 15, 2014, 06:22:53 AM »
Is it technically possible to have Magic Zoom triggered by the half-shutter press as it was on the MKII? At the moment its possible via a few methods including the Magnify button, but this is very inconveniently positioned. I use the half-shutter method on the 5DII constantly and its awesome for live event work.

Is there any possibility this could be made possible on the MKIII also or is it technically not possible?

Hey dubzeebass, where should the seperate topic for the 'Magic Zoom on half shutter for MKIII' be created? Or have you done it?

Super keen for this function or to know if its technically possible.

Hi all,

In recent months Ive been experiencing a strange phenomenon; a white 'flash' that occurs in the video image while recording on the 5D MKII. It looks kind of like the ISO increases dramatically for a frame then returns to normal. Ive seen it on probably 10 occasions now at least, on different camera bodies and using different lenses, in indoor and outdoor conditions. Im just recording regular .h264, no RAW recording or HDR functions or anything. I use some overlays and tools like spotmeter, peaking, magic zoom etc.

*UPDATE*: Based on another users feedback, Im adding that Ive had this problem occur with both zoom and prime lenses, but not during the act of zooming that im aware of.

This link is to a clip where it occured during an interview on two different cameras using two different lenses within a few seconds of each other.

  Password: gordon

Lenses used in this clip were 70-200mm 2.8L Version 1 and 85mm f1.2L.

Im not completely sure which versions I was running on each camera, but the two versions I have on my CF cards are:

Nightly 2014 June 19 f9a29c7c0685 (unified)
Nightly 2014 Apr 15 52e2627ad8c5

When it first started occuring I ran deep formats on my CF cards and installed the older version (Apr 15) on some cards to see if that helped, but the issue still seems to occur.

Im not at all knowledgeable about the programming and testing of ML so sorry if this isnt enough info or not very scientific. I havent seen this issue reported before so just wondering if others have experienced it and if it is indeed firmware related or not.

Ive asked this question in the 1.1.3 thread but im guessing development on that firmware has stopped.

Just wondering if it is possible to have Magic Zoom triggered by the half shutter press as with the MKII, instead of just the Magnify button on the left side as it is now? It would make the world of difference using that function for event work. Cheers!

Is there any possibility we will see the Magic zoom mapped to the half-shutter press like on the 5dMKII? Its sooo inconvenient being on the left of the camera and i love it on the halfshutter for event work.

Also will we see more audio functionality on this camera similar to the MKII, or is it hardware limited?

Scrax, do these custom saveable profiles work on the 5DMKII for video mode, or just photo mode?

Hey this feature is a great idea, thanks so much for the hard work! Just a question about how to set each of the setups that is being switched between? It seems one of the groups of settings (Av, ISO etc.) is whatever you have currently, but when you hit the toggle to the other group, how is that group being determined? I couldnt see how to toggle between two chosen groups of settings.

I am running the just-released ML 2.3 on 5DMKII. Everything is great however I was wondering if it is possible to move the Magic Zoom box around whilst recording? So far it seems its only possible to move the box in standby.
