Also formatting a sd card with ml ongoing often seems to be a cause of issues restarting etc. Walter mostly comes to the rescue here ;).

Don't remember any such issues after reformatting. After format the card is clean and there may be a problem with diagnostics like portable display autoexec.bin and lost ROM.BINs (if needed).

Circular Polarizer.
Because there is no mirror in EOS M design a linear polarizer will do, too.
But I think what he is trying to say is named "Variable ND".

Shoot tab -> Advanced bracket -> [Q] -> Bracket type DOF (Aperture)
Frames =2
EV increment -> Adjust as needed. Ex: f/1.8, 4 EV -> 2nd shot with f/7.1

Use EOScard (Windows) or MacBoot (macOS/OS X) to make card bootable (bootflag is for cam only). Copy Portable Display Test autoexec.bin to card.
Remove battery, insert card, insert battery, close battery compartment door.
Report results.

regarding that, i dont see the module tab... was it removed by default?

Default is: If shutdown is not properly done -> Don't load any module and do not show modules tab.
If you are unable to perform a proper shutdown you may change this to
Debug tab -> Modules debug -> Load modules after crash ON

sorry, i dont know how to do this  :D :'(

Reinstall and wait for timeout -> Bootflag gone.

In short: There are at least 2 different versions labeled "Lexar 1066x" and I don't know any other way to distinguish them but benchmark after purchase.
Disclaimer: Haven't put that much effort into investigating, though.

But you're right: 14 bit lossless should do the job.

You don't need a faster card as there's a limit in a camera CF bus speed.
All this will work with your current Lexar 1066x card

He got a card maxing out at around 80 MByte/s so he has a point.

You need to downgrade to 2.0.3 and run experimental "lua_fix" build (Top of page -> Downloads -> Downloads (drop down menu) -> Experiments.

30 minutes issue: "Prefs" screen -> Powersave in LiveView -> 30-minutes timer Disabled
This setting is not available in nightly builds.

Clean HDMI: "Display" screen -> Clear overlays HalfShutter/WhenIdle/Always/Recording
Adjust as needed.

and the auto focus sensor is apparently right next to the lens mount

The "AF-assist beam" will not be used in movie mode. See page 132.
Continuous AF and M, well ... May some M users have a word here ...

Most likely gphoto2 cannot find silent pic because it is labeled *.DNG.
You can work around this problem by forcing to write DNGs labeled as CR2 by changing some strings in silent.c source code and compiling a custom build. dfort wrote some - pretty easy to follow - tutorials how to build up a development environment.

Camera-specific discussion / Re: Canon 5D Mark III / 5D3 / Firmware 1.3.4
« on: September 12, 2019, 08:25:10 PM »
Firmware Version 1.3.6 incorporates the following fix:

1. Corrects a PTP communications vulnerability.
2. Corrects a vulnerability related to firmware update.

Firmware Version 1.3.6 is for cameras with firmware Version 1.3.5. If the camera's firmware is already Version 1.3.6, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

When updating the firmware of the camera, please review the instructions thoroughly before you download the firmware.

- Once the EOS 5D Mark III camera is updated to Version 1.3.3 (or later), it cannot be restored to a previous firmware Version (Version 1.0.7 through 1.2.3).

"is for cameras with firmware Version 1.3.5."
? I'm convinced "or earlier" is just missing. They don't really suggest to use a staged update for cams with older firmware ... I hope.

And as always with 5D Mark III after 1.3.x: Can someone test if downgrading from 1.3.6 via Canon Utility is still working?

Search engine -> CHDK lorenzo353

I don't think devs share your problem. See nanomad's reply

Nowadays the easiest way to do that is running a LUA script. Load After restart access Scripts screen and run "Movie delayed start". Then switch to Movie tab and there you have a new item which allows you to determine start delay and record duration.

Now dive into scripting and adjust it as you like. You just need a script to run at startup, waiting for "movie.recording" to become true, waiting for some time (msleep(20000)) and then movie.stop().

If you can't make sense of it: Just ask again, maybe we could help.

« on: September 07, 2019, 09:15:26 AM »
Either contact your reseller and let them replace the item with a fast one. Or go Sandisk Extreme Pro known for endurance and performance. Komputerbay may also be an option but mixed experience with reliability.
Haven't heard from users of Toshiba Exceria Pro, though.

Modules tab -> Enable or -> Restart cam and access RAW/MLV options in Movie tab. To enable crop mode press Magnify button in movie mode. Adjust resolution in Movie tab after.

Take a firm grip to the wand, point to cam and shout "focusrackuta dissolva".

Seriously: Give us a chance to understand/reproduce your issue by providing details. Cam type would be fine and some text about what you are trying to do ...

General Help Q&A / Re: Does speed of firmware card matter?

"I know" can mean two things:
- I have tested it and numbers are within expected range.
- Other have tested a card that looks like mine.

AFAIK there are at least 2 different versions of this card and there is - at the moment - no way to tell them apart but to run a benchmark test and draw conclusion. One has superior write performance > 100 MByte/s (tested with ML's benchmark module). The other will do just about 81 MByte/s.
If you have a decent cardreader you may test/confirm with PC you got the fast one. Or use ML's

You set the "boot flag" on your cam. It will now check for a bootable card each time battery hatch is closed and each time the cam is powered up from powersave. If you insert an incompatible card (very, very old EyeFi cards) cam will get stuck. If a bootable card is found it will check for autoexec.bin. If no autoexec.bin is found cam will get stuck. Just don't use bootable cards without autoexec.bin.
You haven't flashed a custom ROM to your card. Your firmware wasn't replaced. ML runs from card, not from NVRAM.

And you may consider not going somewhere without checking the consequences of your actions. Maybe consider asking before doing something if you're unable to check the consequences.
Just saying ...

%F in (*.MLV) do mlv_dump_bruteforce.exe %F -o R-%F

Code: [Select]
For %F in (*.MLV) do mlv_dump_bruteforce.exe %F -o R-%F

Wanted to add 2 or 3 cents and an aspect I think missing in the discussion.

What happened (IMHO)?
A person took his tools and grey matter together and dived into something unknown to discover something. That's what engineers/developers do. We have tools, some busy brain cells and - sometimes - a goal to achieve. Fine. What differs from ML development is POV. He is in the security business and where other people may see a mere bug he saw an opportunity.
Once the attack vector (in PTP) was discovered he may have stopped here. Mathematicians would have: Solution exists -> back to sleep. Okay, telling Canon about it is good practice and within job description. But he didn't stop at this point. Outside the very small community of security geeks such bugs in PTP will not make news. So he thought about something sounding threatening and make people listen. And ransom attack on flash memory content sounds plausible enough and triggered the bigger photog/movie community as intended. (Let's not discuss how far-fetched this scenario is, it is news and therefore solid enough).
As written before: ML offered some kind of paved way to make this happen. Least amount of work compared to other cam manufacturers. Keeping the encryption key hidden was successful and not. As mentioned in the article: Another example security by obscurity doesn't always work.

What will happen (IMHO)?
Pure speculation. Well, ML community may get collateral damage by Canon's action (discussed earlier). It's more difficult for Canon to officially act like ML doesn't exist. We have no saying in the upcoming events.

What are we missing in this discussion(IMO)?
We have no official contacts to Canon. The person discovering the vulnerabilty does now. Maybe we can learn a bit by his approach.
Let's explain my train of thought: A1ex offen mentioned (if I'm remembering correctly) various flaws and potential risks in some firmware routines. Bricked cams by writing nonsense into cam's memory via some not-so-intelligent tools are pretty familiar to him. Canon has no bug-report/bounty program for developers. Maybe they should have.
IMO Canon will have to open up cams to the internet. People want easier access to social media, clouds and other services of their choice. Today they are not well suited for this demand.

May I suggest to think about what ML dev team can do/acchieve by adding security POV into its scope?

Yes, I know there is a major issue within: ML development is endangered by Canon's action against vulnerabilities because ML - somehow - relies on them. It can blast back badly.

But let's give it a try: Take a security POV on firmware/SDK, check for vulnerabilities and if discovered something not exploiding in our face (I have no doubt there are) let us "write home about" (home= Canon). VoilĂ : Houston, we made contact!

And let us hope Canon doesn't throw ML baby out with the bathwater.
