General Help Q&A / Re: Reset Button

Go into the ML menu (press Erase button), go to Config menu (the one before last, with the CF icon), and select Delete config file. Restart your camera and everything should reset to default.

Excellent photo!

Looks good on the ipad :)

It's much easier to keep track of new posts this way.

Thought I'd share with you a small utility for Windows I've written a few months ago in C# in case it's useful to you guys  :)

This is a simple light-weight app which allows you to offload footage from your memory card to your PC. I've found it quite useful as a backup for on-location shooting, and carry it on a small netbook.

Here's a break-down of the features:
- Copy files from memory card to a primary & secondary (optional) location of your choice
- Filter file types to copy (currently MOV, THM, JPG, CR2, WAV, MP3)
- Renaming video files to creation date & time (as a timecode reference)
- Verification of data after copying (by comparing exact file sizes)
- Storing up to 3 profiles (video, audio & photo profiles)
- Quick profile switching using CTRL+1/2/3 keyboard shortcuts
- Copying all Magic Lantern files, only the configuration file (magic.cfg) or the config and hidden.cfg (introduced in ML 2.3) from a pre-defined location
- Generating a shot list based on data obtained from LOG files generated by Magic Lantern, which includes the date & time, lens used, shutter speed, aperture, ISO, focal length, white balance, picture style, FPS, HDR and bitrate
- Exporting shot list to Excel spreadsheet
- Transcoding of HDR videos captured through ML
- Argument passing for running through scripts or batch files


Download latest version (see posts below for changelog):

Let me know if you have any ideas for new features or encounter any bugs.

I haven't tried this picture style in particular, however it looks very close to my modified picture style based on neutral (basically neutral with reduced contrast & sharpness, and one less notch of saturation). This has become my preferred picture style after some testing. I also occasionally use Cinestyle (usually for weddings).

Thought I'd share with you some HDR photos I've taken using ML's HDR feature  :)

I believe these were all made out of 3 exposures with 2 EV difference.

I also have some others in my flickr set here:

You've got some wonderful photos in your gallery! Really dig the HDRs and the star-trails!  :)

I have to report what a think is a minor bug I found out that ML Zoom doesn't work with 60fp. (in canon EOS 600d) It starts to glitch and it is annoying although you probably already knew this but i think I should tell you anyway i can't wait for the next version :)

To my knowledge Zoom doesn't work well with 720p. Maybe others can confirm this.

im looking for the ML for the 60d ver 1.1.1 i really need it please

The current version of ML (2.2) supports firmware 1.1.0. The next upcoming release (2.3) will support firmware 1.1.1. If you're on firmware 1.1.1 and want to use ML, you should downgrade to the previous firmware for now.  :)

Welcome!  I hope you enjoy your stay  :)

According to a distance calculator, I'm some 1375km away from your location (I'm from Malta)  ;)

Not yet. Maybe it will be compatible with the next release, but only developers can go into that detail. Then again, there doesn't seem to be any major bug fixes or features, so might as well stay on the current firmware  ;)

No black bars visible on the sample shown at C5D, however they do mention some issues (no further details specified).

Just read that the 650D has clean HDMI out, making it even more useful :)

Good idea! Added mine too  :)

General Help Q&A / Re: Rack Focus Test: not so happy

As you guessed, it does depend on the lens' autofocus capability. From what I've tried, I think USM lenses are better. The 50 1.8's results were quite choppy and not accurate. The 70-200 f/4L IS was much better.
