1) Test without ML
Turn cam off.
Press SET and turn cam on.
Release SET after QC screen appears.
Take a pic (= pic 1).
Record for 12 minutes and take a pic (= pic 2) again.

Turn cam off. Let cam cool down. 30-60 minutes.

2) Test with ML active
Don't press set and turn cam on.
Take a pic (=pic 3).
Record for 12 minutes and take a pic (= pic 4) again.

Check exif tag "Camera Temperature" for all 4 pics and compare.

Only way to change number is incrementing/decrementing by button press or wheel. Would be appreciated if working like "Stop after" where you can select and change each digit.

Rename Autoexec.bin to Autoexec.bin.NB, rename ML folder to ML.NB and copy extracted files to CF-card. Overwrite ML-Setup.fir or not, it doesn't really matter.

BTW: There is no CF card in 800x doing 120 MByte/s writing. More likely you are stuck with about 80 MByte/s. Much too slow for 1080p25 in 14 bit uncompressed raw. Benchmark your card using (Modules tab -> ON -> restart -> Debug tab -> Benchmarks -> Card benchmarks -> Quick R/W benchmark
in photo mode.
You may want to purchase a 1066x card, though. See

- Encryption changed.

Boy, really hate to read that!

Misunderstanding: EOS R is able to charge battery in cam with optional PD-E1 adapter connected to USB port. But - according to manual p. 576 - it's not possible to operate the cam while charging.
Don't expect this to change in RP.

EDIT: Really, Canon? "To protect batteries and keep them in optimal condition, do not charge continuously for more than 24 hours". Not able to handle Li-ion loading properly? This is not what I call decent engineering! Damn!

CIPA-cycle is not undisputed (to put in friendly wording). Do you have any information if cam can be powered by external USB power bank?

just checked full specs, they claim UHS-II

My wrong! Corrected it!

But look up this one:
Number of pics (according to CIPA): 250? 100D is rated for 380 ...

Memory Card Type    SDHC SDXC


Was there any reason given as to why and issues linked there.

and if/when it's coming back? :)

There is no schedule, timeline, masterplan in ML developement. My general advise: If there is no ML for your cam now act like there will be no ML for your cam ever.
Fits for missing features, too.

You may want to test your footage with some not-so-outdated application ...
Take a look into the sticky threads...

There is no connection between Canon company and ML project.
ML does reverse engineering and ML scope does not cover own hardware projects. There are some connections between ML dev team and Axiom, though. See and take a close look into timeline ...

You may be better off (IMO) contacting Axiom team and other open-source camera projects. There are some add-on boards for Arduino and Raspberry.

About hardware/chips from manufacturers: You may ask the manufacturer for an engineering sample/developer board. Costs, availability and legal things involved differ a lot and it may depend upon who is asking, too. Sorry, but it's entirely up to Canon how to handle inquiries for this particular device.

At the moment it's almost a one-man-show. Therefore anything restricting collaboration doesn't really matter.
I cannot tell which platform or editing tool fits best in regard of easy integration into ML. That's up to a1ex, I think.

Focus peaking is working in build "2018-06-06 00:21". Toggle LiveView screens until ML screen appears.

Hardware and Accessories / Re: Which camera to choose for ML/dual ISO ?
« on: February 11, 2019, 06:59:49 PM »
The only ML supported cam not matching second requirement is EOS M. 100D not listed, yet.
-> Modules -> Dual_ISO (Disclaimer: 650D and some other cams (including 100D?) may need some tuning in the register set).
-> Focus -> Focus_stacking. Requires AF lens

I miss swivel screen on my 100D, though. And the option to use some cheaper batteries (like the replacements for 650D from the big river) without entering reliability hell.

Thanks! I think it will get covered in Camera Help 1.x and x > 0.
Wishing for a slider/motorized pano head, though.

@a1ex: Curious about slit-scan timing. Is there a formula for scan time depending on exposure duration, resolution or else?

Don't know if other DiGiC 5 cams are affected. Please test other D5 cams and reply here.
EDIT: a1ex told this feature can not work on 650D and most likely not working on 700D/M, too.
And we need a list of cams able to work, including D4:

How to reproduce:
Modules menu -> ON -> Reboot
Shoot menu -> Silent Pics -> Q -> Select "Best Focus" -> Q -> Silent Picture ON
Enter Liveview
Half-Shutter press for some seconds.
Release Shutter
Cam will process pictures.
If most pics are garbled: But is there.

Confirmed working on:
7D (Walter Schulz)

Confirmed broken on:
650D (Walter Schulz)
100D (Walter Schulz)

General Chat / Re: Timelapses with a "beat" pattern?
« on: February 10, 2019, 06:00:01 PM »
Some stabilizers are prone to random movement in OFF position. Sigma 18-125 OS is such a lens. Not the best choice for timelapse. You may want to use the "lens twist trick" if your lens works this way.

Only one way to find out ...

Format card using cardreader.
Follow install instructions for Nightly Builds.

At the moment there are two modules (pic_view, mlv_play) adding features into file manager. And not able to do much without.*
What is the developers pick on that?
Does it make sense to merge these functions into file manager or do you prefer to keep them seperate for easier development (or other reasons I'm not aware of)?

*MLV_Play enables playback of last record from RAW menu *without* file manager.

If you want to stream for > 30 min you need an experimental build (lua_fix) and setting "Prefs tab -> PowerSave in LiveView -> 30-minute timer Disabled".
If you want to record in H.264 uninterrupted: No way, there will be a short break each 29:59. Setting "Movie tab -> Movie  Tweaks -> Movie Restart ON"
If you want to record RAW/MLV uninterrupted: Implemented in nightly builds.
