General Development Discussion / Re: Portable ROM dumper
« on: Yesterday at 06:17:58 AM »
Got a new cam: 250D/Rebel SL3/Kiss X10/200D Mark II (seriously, Canon?) with firmware version 1.0.1.
Is there a ROM dumper for this DIGIC 8 cam?

I put it here ...
Found it via SLRlounge and the original blog post is linked:

Maybe a1ex can give a word or two. Minor error: 5D3 works with 166x (theoretical) as in UHS-I SDR25 mode (AFAIK).

Don't know if it's worth the effort to comment his blog entry ...

Somehow related feature discussed earlier:
Some Olympus cams do have a feature called "Live Bulb". Just do a web search, lots of links and videos about it.

Foreseeable future: No ML for 1.1.3
You already tried to downgrade to previous Firmware via EOS Utility? I think it may not be possible but nobody confirmed it yet.
We know CPS can downgrade 5D3s and if you need ML now it's the only option you have.

I still think of this post every now and then, do you have any updates on this?

Please! Don't push!

Not the answer you are looking for ...
- use an external power supply with sufficient capacity

I dream of making use of cam's internal watchdog timers ... but - as a1ex mentions frequently - we don't know that much about cam's DSP.

I suppose we're not talking cropped RAW/MLV here ...

Uninstalling ML before card removal is full-scale voodoo.

The impact of logo redesign/makeover may be widely overestimated.

AFAIK they cannot be tell apart by visual inspection. GA's write rate is well beyond 80 MByte/s.

ZEEK, which Evo plus?

old (slow): MB-MC128DA/EU
new (fast): MB-MC128GA/EU

Magic lantern has many users in China, but some people translate it into Chinese to make money. I wonder if the development team knows this situation

Yes, they know.

Hello, I'm planning to buy 6d, but maybe I'd like to use it as a webcam on streams so I need unlimited runtime and clean hdmi.
I know by design I cant have them, but with can I bypass it with magic lantern firmware (I saw multiple videos as in ML you can complitely disable overlays = clean hdmi, not sure about runtime)

Unlimited HDMI recording duration is implemented in lua_fix experimental builds.

Also, how sturdy shutter is? How long usally it lasts (i.e. 5d mark II lasts for 500k approx.)

6D shutter spec is 100000 (one hundred thousands) actuations.
5D Mark II spec is 150000. But this is statistics and doesn't tell a specific cam's sufferings. Just as an example how bad a camera's life can be: I take my cams on motorbike rides ...

EOS M2 supports SDXC specs. SDXC storage limit is 2 TB.

you mean you want to compile windows version ?

See reply 3705. I think he's following imstructions given there.

Use another card, preferable a smaller one. Copy firmware file to card and retry. Report back

Without overclocking 5D3's SD-card interface is limited to 25 MByte/s (theoretical) bandwidth.

Before to do it, is there any place where can I to read the exactly instructions of where is and how to install the MLVApp
Forum overview -> Using Magic Lantern -> Raw Video -> Raw Video Postprocessing -> First sticky thread.

and step to step how can I film in UHD with my 5dmark III?

Top of page -> Downloads -> Downloads (Drop down menu) -> Experiments -> 4K raw video recording; lossless compression
Read chapter, esp. about continuous recording and - mandatory - linked forum discussion thread's first post.

Yes, there is a ton of malfunctions. Will try to replace this one with an ML supported cam ASAP (and this might take a while).

DOF near = Distance to stage (front)
DOF far = Distance to stage (rear)
AF off and adjust aperture and focus distance to your needs. Then set shutter speed according to aczors speeds. Then adjust ISO (or let ML adjust ISO for you).

Depending on lens' focal length, distance, available light, movements on stage you may not be able to adjust all settings as wanted.

I suggest to read/watch some DOF related tutorials. It is quite basic stuff to know (for DSLR shooters). See and other sources.

Nope, according to a1ex.

No workflow info for post. Try again.
Which modules in use?

Without details about settings, workflow any answer is right, wrong, irrelevant.
