Hello again,

I'm starting to use MagicLantern, and I'd like to do a timelapse. Since the
camera is in my room, and since I want it to run during the night, I use
Silent picture mode. Regarding this setting, I have two questions:

1. I cannot find a way to tell it to automatically adjust exposure in response
    to variations in light. I would need this to shoot the move from twilight to night.

2. At full resolution I have to set at least 6s between photos. I guess it's (also)
    because I am in RAW mode (32M/photo). Is there a way to work around this
    limitation? Is there a way to reduce resolution, but not all the way to
    1080p? I am on a 700D.


Hello everybody,

For some reason, I cannot get pictures on the SD card in Silent Picture mode on my 700D (T5i).

Here is what I've done :

- Install Magic Lantern
- Move to Manual mode on the dial
- Set Manual Focus on the lens
- Enter Live View -- at this point, the "Silent Picture" mode is activated (white) in the ML menu
- In the ML menu I have set the Silent Mode to Full-res and the File format to DNG.

Now, when I press the shutter button half-way or full-way, but shortly (less than 2 seconds, I guess), the screen goes black and I get a message "Set picture quality to RAW". But no file is written to the SD card.

If I keep the button pressed for longer, normal camera operation takes over, and the mechanical shutter is triggered (the mirror goes down, which is weird in manual mode, and then up again).

Given that I'm a newbie, I guess I miss some step here.

What is funny, is that at some point it did save some DNG files, but during shooting them the mechanical shutter was activated. I don't recall the exact configuration where this happened, and I deleted them afterwards from the SD card. Right now, the ML menu tells me that the delta is Silent Picture and Mirror Lock-Up (but the latter is inactive).
