Tragic Lantern / Re: EOS M Alpha shutter-bug discussion

When you use USB, do you pull the plug out of the camera and still use the camera? Even it you leave it plugged in, when you try to shut the camera off, does it then hang on the Sensor Cleaning display and never shut off until you pull the battery? That is what happens to me all the time.

Gary

Yup, exactly that. A proper reboot of my PC made the issue go away though, at least the last time I tried it. (using windows 8.1 command  "shutdown /r /t 0" to perform a full kernel restart rather than the hybrid hibernation reboot they added in win8)

I says it does, but only on install.

How many with the shutter bug never used usb?

I haven't experienced the shutter bug, but have used USB to take photos off the camera. I have experienced issues with that though, where the camera doesn't go into storage mode, locks and needs to have a battery pull. Interestingly, rebooting my Windows computer and reattaching the USB cable gets rid of the lock up and then the USB storage mode correctly.

I think you can get away without EOSCard if you have a disk <= 32GB. However, people have seen the bug in that scenario, and I who have been using 64GB cards have never experienced the bug (I'm running and old version of ML still now though)

I am still on the rootwang version from a while back.

I've been to a wedding, 2 family get together, 2 toddler birthday parties, and I'm now on holiday. All through that time I have mainly been using the 18-55mm, occasionally swapping to the 22mm. I only take photos, I have never tried to record video.

I'm yet to see the shutter bug.

@wigglr which .fir are you using to bootload? can you share it please.

This one http://wigglr.co.uk/EOSM1202.FIR.FIR

I didn't use MacOS files, dunno if that matters

@WiGgLr, which *.fir file are you using? Are you updating the firmware to install ML with a lens attached or not? I cant see how the card you use could cause the shutter bug.

I took the ML files from this post: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=3648.msg68248#msg68248
as advised by funkysound, who also didn't have the shutter bug. Looks like there is a .fir file in there, my bad. I just checked and that is still on the 64GB card.

I had nothing attached to the camera at all, no lens, no speedlite, nothing. I followed this guide from here ad assumed a lens is an accessory http://www.magiclantern.fm/install.html

Step 1. Preparing your camera

Use a fully charged Canon battery (original, not third party);
-Remove any accessories from your camera (such as battery grip or external flash);
-For first install, use a simple SD/SDHC/CF card (32 GB or smaller). 64GB cards and larger will not work for first install (but you can use them with ML, see below).
-Make sure you have a card reader.
-Double-check your Canon firmware version.
-Rotate your mode dial to Manual (M) position.
-Recommended: Restore your camera to default settings (Clear settings, see picture above). Remember this will reset all canon settings and removes custom picture styles!

Step 2. Installation

Format the card in the camera (low-level format).
Unzip all of the files from Magic Lantern zip archive to the root of your card.
Launch the Firmware Update process.
If the card LED is blinking for more than a few seconds, upgrade your Canon firmware from the links above (even if you already have the correct firmware version number!) and try again.
Once you see the green confirmation screen, restart your camera. Done.

Once I'd done that with my smaller card, I followed the instructions to put ML on my 64GB card using EOSCard linked in the same set of instructions:

Installing Magic Lantern on other cards

If you use SD/SDHC/CF cards, you may simply repeat Step 2 on every card you would like to use Magic Lantern.
If you use SDXC cards, or if you prefer to skip the firmware update step and prepare all your cards from the PC, you may copy ML files on your card and make it bootable with a special utility: EOScard for Windows



I have put nothing else on the card at all.

I am curious to know if anyone has a 64 gb and/or a 128 gb card and what their results are for the shutter bug.

Gary

I mentioned that I have a 64GB card here

I first installed ML with an old 2GB card, then used EOSCard from the site install FAQ to put ML on one of these 64GB cards:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B007JTKM30/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I don't have the shutter bug on either card.

Hope that helps

OH, I also didn't put anything other than what is in the rootwang zip on either card, no extra common firmware or anything like that, just the contents of the zip in post 1110 (page 45)

You'll find a working version without the infamous shutter bug here (for camera firmware 2.0.2)

Follow the instructions in the link, they work well, only you two-finger tap screen to bring up ML with EOS-M

Hi Wigglr,
sounds like a good idea to me.
If I remember it right it´s easy to do. You just download the compiled version from Rootwang (post #1110 on side 45) and do the normal ML instalation which you can find here (even if EOS M is not mentioned because there is no official version till now - the procedere is the same) :
http://www.magiclantern.fm/install.html
Malakai explaned it too.

Edit, here is the link in post 1110 http://www.sendspace.com/file/37061u

This is the first time I installed ML, as I upgraded to 2.0.2 vanilla firmware before ML was ready so had to wait.

I then held off and watched this thread while the bootloading issue was going on, and then the 18-55 issue. So for me, I've never had the shutter bug. I'm using the rootwang firmware that funkysound pointed me to on the previous page.

I'm now going to try following the instructions to put ML on one of my 64GB cards, I'll report back.

I copy/pasted the contents off of the 2GB onto a freshly camera formatted 64GB card (formatted before ML), then used EOSCard as per screenshot in this link http://www.magiclantern.fm/install.html

There doesn't seem to be a shutter bug

OK, so I had to hunt around for a non-SDXC card, as I have been using 2 x 64GB class 10 of those.

Eventually I find an old point and shoot camera with a 2GB SD MLC card in it, then I followed the instructions from funkysound's link (installed ML without a lens on). Fired it up to see it worked, turned it off, put on the 18-55 and switched it on, no problem at all taking shots (only tried AV mode).

I switched on focus peak and magic zoom, plus overlay, took more shots.

I switched to 22mm lens, took a couple of shots, switched back to 18-55, took some more shots

I must have turned the camera on and off at least 20 times in all (waiting for the light to flash before switching on again) and did not get the bug.

I'm now going to try following the instructions to put ML on one of my 64GB cards, I'll report back.

Hi Gary - I have no idea too.
Just checked it again, did a few photos and filmed. Turned it of and on, photos ... filming, ... a few times ... still no problems with the shutter. Only focus peaking stops working some times.
Maybe I did something different then you all did. When I changed to the new EOS M fimware, I reseted everything back to 0 before (uninstal ML bootflag on the M, format SD card, ...). That´s why I couldn´t use ML after installing 2.0.2. and had to wait till Rootwang gave me/us his compiled ML version. Since than I didn´t change a thing.
I did read here that you could update to 2.0.2 from 1.0.6 without uninstaling ML before and that many people did it this way - but I didn´t do so. I guess that´s all I can say about what I may have done different.
I have no idea if this made the difference because I do not really understand what you do and how you program all this fantastic ML stuff - but it´s a fact that I didn´t face any shutter problems with the 18-55 efm till now.

I hope this helpes you!

Hi funky,

I haven't yet installed ML, but I have both the 22mm and 18-55mm EF-M lenses. My camera came with the 1.0.6 firmware, and I updated it to 2.0.2 before taking the plunge with ML. As such, I think I could be in the perfect position to test your theory.

Please could you give me newbie step by step instructions on how to get ML installed the way you have done it? Then we can see whether I experience the bug (hopefully not).

Thanks,

Wigglr

how do i reproduce this bug? has this been posted, i searched quickly and i couldn't find any exact directions. does a power cycle fix it for you?

From what I've read, you just switch the camera on with the 18-55mm attached and you won't be able to take photos until you either double tap the power button, or reattach the lens with the power on. The bug will reappear every time the camera is turned off.

Is anyone who owns the 18-55mm lense NOT experiencing the shutter bug?
