If you have problems with your EOS Utiility version it will make sense to
- mention Utility version number
- describe the problem in detail
- and the steps you have taken to make it work
Without these informations we are unable to reproduce your problem and only guessing what might have gone wrong.

I suggest to swicht cam to photo (stills) mode and mode dial M. Retry and give feedback

Remove battery and format card using cardreader.
Insert battery and card. If card doesn't work after: There are incompatible cards not able to work with ML's loading process. Old EyeFi cards are known to have this problem. If you own such a card:
- Get rid off it and use a newer EyeFi or another brand.
- Get rid of ML and use this card. You have to uninstall ML by running install again (Yes, it sounds weird but pay attention to screen messages).

Feel free to read install guide and FAQ.

Specs looks good on paper. There are two problems for such designs:
Thermal management may (or not) cause processor throtteling and serious drops in performance.
Power management default settings when not connected to power supply.

2nd one should be treatable. Will drain the battery on a higher rate, though.
1st one ... You have to find out. If you're lucky you will find a review cornering this aspect.

You are missing the point again.

Remove battery, remove card (if any). Close card compartment door. Insert battery. Close battery compartment door.
Retry and report results.

Do you have ML installed on this cam?

It's the second time you came up with this.
You bought from USA being an EU citizen.
I bought from Amazon (Germany) and had no troubles getting a new card.

If you insist your experience is telling "they never honor it" you may be informed there are different opinions about this based on different experiences.
Maybe you want to tell people about possible hazards buying abroad (found frequently in buying guides) instead.

Contact your dealer/Komputerbay support.

Do you have your ROM files backed up?

Just to please me:
Remove battery, remove card.
Insert battery but do not insert card.
Any different results with card inserted?

If cam not working (and only if):
By formatting card you removed card's boot ability. Use EOScard (Windows) or Macboot (macOS) to restore that option. (If using EOScard: Remove all files and directories from card after.)
Copy portable display test autoexec.bin to card
Remove battery, insert card, insert battery.
Report results.

I'm just wondering it worked once. Because "Movie REC key" isn't supported with 5D3:

I don't own a 5D2 or a Tascam 60 and I'm far from home (and my Arduinos).
1) You can use an external wired remote control to trigger video recording. Use option "Movie REC key".
2) There is an Tascam RC-10 replacement running on Arduino:

If you have troubles combining 2 and 1 or with Arduino at all: Just drop a line.

0) Delete *.fir from card
1) Copy extracted nightly build content to card (I suppose you are running 1.1.3).
2) Run firmware update
3) Wait for timeout (60 sec) and restart cam
4) Format card in cam

Proceed with updating Canon firmware 1.2.3.

No offense but we had several instances of "I'm having the same issue" being quite different, indeed.
Describe your issue in detail, please.

HDR and Dual ISO Postprocessing / Re: Strange DNG

Not an expert in dual-ISO but I'm pretty pleased with the amount of details in shadow areas in your DNG (compared to plain CR2).
And that's what (IMO) Dual-ISO is all about.

No untouched original files -> No diagnosis.

Was occupied with other things.
Loaded your ISO-research build for 1.0.5 and no problem loading + Sooo ... what to do?

Das Menü kann man auch schnell auf Englisch umstellen ...

Aber noch mal zum Problem: Du bist im Movie-Modus, drückst 2-mal auf die Lupe, bist dann im Crop-Modus, gehst dann über den Papierkorb ins ML-Menü. Was passiert, wenn Du direkt nach dem Sprung zum ML-Menü nochmal die Papierkorb-Taste drückst?
Bei mir (allerdings mit dem Fast-Nightly aus der hiesigen Download-Seite) bin ich dann wieder im Video-Modus mit Crop.
Setz doch mal ML auf Default zurück und probiere es ohne geladene Module.

How can I get this 5x crop thing done? Pressing the magnifier button twice doesn't do anything in video mode.

Turn AF off and retry.

I tried again and I cannot figure out how to shoot H.264 at all- do I need to download additional module?
Reset ML to factory defaults, enter movie mode, press record button. Consult Canon manual.

I think I would be happy even if I could reduce compression slightly and maybe shoot at a slightly higher resolution...
Not available. H.264 conversion is done in hardware and - at time of writing and AFAIK - sort of a black box.

? Sorry, where do you get the information about H.264 in 4k? Link?

Quite on the contrary: I would never trust software alone (ML or not: n o n e) over such long time. If your cam gets stuck for whatever reason you are lost.
Proper engineering uses something called "Watchdog timer". You will find them in industrial designs (earth and space), esp. in non-maintainable environments.
Arduino, Raspberry (and others) do contain watchdogs.

Lookup garry23's threads about focus stacking:

And is an external timer + power supply a solution for you or not?

Yes, and you are referring to an outdated screenshot of an unsupported spreadsheet (also outdated).
