You can try to create a < 2 GB partition.

- the portable ROM dumper (you must format the card to a very small size, or dd this 256MB image - howto)

7D.206 with SanDisk  Extreme 60 MB/s, 32 GB

Contents of ROM0.MD5 and ROM1.MD5:

0de4cc03919f939c4ec691eb5fcfd744  ROM1.BIN

MD5 check on ROM0.BIN and ROM1.BIN running by PC:
Code: [Select]

0de4cc03919f939c4ec691eb5fcfd744 J:\ROM1.BIN

MD5 check for file ROM0.BIN differs.

BTW: No timestamps for ROMx.BIN and ROMx.MD5.

General Development Discussion / Q on LV Display Presets (@a1ex?)

Curiosity again:
Settings for each display (numbered 0-3) are stored in MAGIC.CFG in lines disp.mode.a, disp.mode.b, disp.mode.c and disp.mode.x into a number. Decimal number interpreted as binary where each bit represents a setting (or combined bits for items with more than 2 options). Right?

No. Because it won't work it doesn't make any sense to try. Programming a port simply don't work this way.

Feedback time:
Debug tab help ready to be reviewed.

To discuss: Help text made for mere users. I omitted all the "nerdy" stuff. Q: Add a line for each menu item to tell users not to pay attention to that man behind the curtain?

Missing: RL numbers for benchmark runs for each cam.
Broken: Format for listings and sub-menus ... See "Benchmark"

Reset ML to defaults (Prefs tab -> Config Files -> Restore ML defaults)

Retry in photo and movie mode. If the error occurs you have to restore ML defaults again.
Report results.

Crop factor calculation into 35 mm terms:

(Sensor horizontal pixel count / ML horizontal resolution in ML crop mode) x 1.61

It's not exactly rocket science, you know?

Think about getting g3gg0 involved, too. He had the suggestion to sync the other way round using camera's LED to trigger stepper motor. Short mention about it in linked thread.
Requires a custom build, though.

I haven't been able to find out what triggers it yet. Will look into it, though.

EDIT: First hint: Happens after powersave mode.

Occasionally this (lower right corner) happens to me. Scrollwheel function not affected (or I missed something).
Can I help to corner this one?
Older nightly and experimental builds affected, too.

Okay, old one but what's the status?
Im mean: (Almost) no one missed it since. Gone for good? Can live with that ...

Module tab -> OK -> Restart (photo mode) -> Debug tab -> Benchmarks -> Card Benchmarks -> Quick R/W benchmark (1 min).
Open card's root directory and convert bench0.ppm to png or jpeg. Upload it to a file/pic like and link image here.

And retry H.264 recording with Global Draw OFF.

Before going into analysis: May I suggest to get another card and retry? 60D's limit is about 25 MByte/s (without overclocking) and such cards are affordable. Get your pick from -> Reviews -> SD-cards and Micro SD-cards or any other reliable source offering write rate benchmarks.

Here is how another user solved sync problems. Requires some additional hardware + experimental build:

General Help Q&A / Re: Canon 7D Live USB Audio Monitoring
« on: January 09, 2019, 03:52:21 AM »
With MagicLantern Build Ver. 2018.Jul03 installed, the Canon 7D does not have a function for live audio monitoring. I did buy a USB to RCA cable, and an RCA to 3.5mm. Audio worked fine, but the display went black. Is there a module I'm missing somewhere that I need to turn on? Or has it been disabled until (hopefully) ver. 2.0.6? -> Audio -> HEADPHONE_MONITORING not supported in 7D. Same in 2.0.6.

Sound has to be enabled in Canon menu.

Recording H.264 (MOV): Toggle screens until ML screen pops up.
RAW recording: Supported with MLV_REC module only. You have to load MLV_SND, too. And don't forget to enable MLV sound in Audio tab. And you have to enable Overlays in Movie tab -> RAW video (MLV) -> Global Draw

Where does EOS R fit in? DiGiC 8 but EOS or Powershot codebase or mixed-breed?

Nope, it's a Canon. But no DiGiC 7/8 on board!
Those Twitter members will hunt you down, a1ex!

Aspect ratio 4:3! Boy, you got us! And we're totally offtopic. Totally!

General Help Q&A / Re: Intervalometer with bulb on EOS M
« on: January 08, 2019, 10:02:22 AM »
Did I miss anything?

Math, maybe. ;-)
If you tell the cam to take a pic every 10 seconds (intervalometer) and set exposure duration to 35 seconds (bulb timer) what can a poor cam do?


My problem with tab's location is because it sucks in text tutorials/help texts if the item you're starting which is not there. Happens to non-D4 users (+50D). No problem in video tutorials or in workshops: You introduce the topics and with no real effort you start with second (in modern cams: first) tab's content and most people will just be fine.
Text books/tutorials are a different thing. It's a major PITA for writers and readers if the introduction has to begin with some kind of "if-then-else" or explain why things are not there or other way round. It's just a bad start. Call it "didactic" reasons.

Beginning with "Expo" and "Overlays" is actually convincing: It doesn't matter if you're into stills or video, comes handy for both. And Expo even starts with terms you are familiar with. Big win!

Now, *after* you made people happy you may introduce something not so straightforward and - IMO - placing Audio after Movie makes sense because it's related to movie.

Yeah, not the strongest use case, I know!
