Camera-specific Development / Re: Canon 70D
January 22, 2019, 01:40:04 AM
Magic Lantern is fantastic. I particularly love the focus peaking feature. The only hair-tearing hair-ripping frustrating time I had was trying to make it work after needing to update the camera firmware to 1.1.2 -- was not remembering to reset camera settings to default settings after completing the update of firmware version 1.1.2. This is no fault at all with magic lantern.

I spent ages trying to figure out why no focus peaking dots were appearing in the magic lantern live view screen - trying a bunch of things like retrying current version and previous versions of magic lantern for the 70D. We usually get to the bottom of it at the end. The thing that I messed up on is forgetting about, or not knowing that I needed to go into the Canon 70D settings immediately after the 1.1.2 firmware update, and manually reset or clear all the current camera settings. In other words .....  go back to camera default settings after 1.1.2 firmware update. Once done, back in action again with the focus peaking.

I'm sure that others have gone down this same path.
