Tragic Lantern / Re: Tragic Lantern for EOS M

@1%: I just want you to know that I love and appreciate you so much. :3

I second that!  Keep up the amazing work 1%!!

And Michael L, yes please do share more info about your kite rig.  I've thought of getting one for my s100 for some time, but now that I have the EOS M I'm even more interested in shooting photos and video from above!

I know this is a forum for the technical aspects of getting ML working on the EOS M, but it would be great to hear from any other people out there who are using their EOS M (with ML) for interesting purposes.  One of the main reasons I got it was to do more HDR timelapses with it and save the shutter on my 5D2 (shooting five exposures for each frame burns through your shutter pretty darn fast!).  To that end, I also bought the Sigma 12-24 full frame lens so I could use it for wider timelapses on the EOS M but also still use it on the 5D2.  Problem is I don't want to take it off my 5D2 because 12mm rectilinear on a full frame camera gets some AMAZING photos (and for the record it works great on the EOS M also).  Of course when they announced the EF-M 11-22 lens a week after I bought the 12-24, I was kicking myself, but since I'm so happy with the 12-24 on my 5D2 I think I'll also get the 11-22 specifically for timelapses on my EOS M, assuming I can get my hands on that lens.  It's supposed to start selling tomorrow in Japan (according to Yodobashi's website), but won't be sold or supported in North America according to CanonRumors.  DOH!  Canon has also stated that it may not work properly on the old 1.0.6 EOS M firmware, and will need the new 2.0.2 firmware to work properly.  Which brings me back to the original statement above about how much we all love and appreciate you 1%!!!!

Dear Great Intelligencies (nice one, feureau) and stuff,

So, about that 18-55mm shutter bug. I was finally able to reproduce it while trying to take a pciture with ML installed with one of the most recent autoexec.bins. Basically you hit the shutter release, the camera focuses, the rectangle turns green, but then nothing happens and your friends get really annoyed with you. In order to take the shot and avoid pissing off my subjects even further, I had to set the bootflag off. With ML off, everything shot fine. I'm not sure if anyone had described this bug like this before. Lens FW: 2.0.0 Camera FW: 1.0.6. It worked fine for a long time before. Maybe its some sort of config bug. I tried turning off ML functions to get it to work, but I had no luck.

Thanks for reading,

I've experiencing the same problem with the 18-55 lens.  I bought my EOS M with 22 prime here in China about a month ago and installed ML on it right away, have shot lots of timelapses and HDRs with no problems on 22 prime lens and other Canon lenses mounted with adapter.  Then last week I bought the 18-55 (got it for about $75 new... gotta love!) and when I went to take my first picture nothing happened!  My first reaction was that I had been sent a fake lens, then I remembered someone mentioning a bug here on the EOS M forum.  So I erased ML off the card and sure enough the lens worked fine.  I was using the June 10 "[EOSM] Check" build.  I just reinstalled ML with the June 15 “[EOSM]”, but my 18-55 doesn't work with that either.  My lens and camera FW are same as Jerry's: 2.0.0 and 1.0.6.

A few quick questions:
1) How do you turn the bootflag off?  I'm assuming this allows me to keep ML on the card but not boot the camera with it so that I can use the 18-55, right?
2) How likely is it that there will be a version of ML released for the new 2.0.2 firmware?  Will this possibly fix the bug?
3) How do guys like 1% and mixer2 handle being such badasses?  Seriously guys, you are awesome!!

Thanks to everyone who has made the EOS M port possible.  You've given my poor, undersized camera a massive p***s enlargement, and I'm enjoying strutting him around town!
