However, that will happen after taking a short break (could be a month or two, maybe more, maybe less). Sorry, I have to.

Do that!

Some 1.5 years ago best friend died of heart attack eaten up by work/house/relationship for too long.

I have canon markii and the latest ML

Fine, no link to video. So what are we talking about? Does "no longer see" mean you had a version where it was?
Have you tried to press the magnify button and adjusting resolution before record start?
And which is the latest ML?

Come on. We will always have people/trolls/twits/morons/naggers unable to grab the concept. No matter how often it is declared to be useless or annoying. We had naggers posting directly under replies offering in no unclear terms that their requests/"encouragements" are unwanted. And we will have a lot of them in the future.

And had a WTF moment with dfort's post, too.

That's exactly why I'm hesitating to publish the Patreon page - because I'm unable to meet the expectations right now. Sorry :(

Am I the only one sniffing a "Chicken or the egg" here? Or in programmers terms: Deadlock.

I take the liberty asking you to drop condition "right now". Don't know who came up with this part anyway ...

Just what the man said.
You explained your settings: Interval timer 20 s, exposure setting = 15 s. This will work. Without Long exp. noise reduction.
Actual setting in Magic.cfg: Interval timer 15 seconds.
Common error, though.

Zip content of ML/Settings, upload zipped file somewhere for public access, link it here and give info about cam settings in use:
Mode M?
Remote Trigger in use?
Shoot mode (Single, Continuous, ...)?
No bracketing configured in Canon menu?
AF off?

Just to be sure: You set ML to defaults before enabling autoexpo and haven't played around with Expo. Lock, ETTR ...?

Expo override is off and it doesn't work outside LV, too?

Make sure to disable "Long exposure noise reduction".

So is there some known sdxc card that will hit maximum limit of 100mb writing speed on canon M ?


This is the fastest one within pure UHS-I specs according to SD Association (without SanDisk's proprietary wizardry):

Pretty slow for an UHS-II card. Write mode maxes out at about 100 MByte/s in UHS-II readers and 81 MByte/s in UHS-I.

Cannot say how UHS-II cards in UHS-I compatibility mode are compatible with overclocking a la ML. Anyone tried?
Maybe a1ex or nikfreak are able to tell.

hello guys! I'm totally new here
No, you are not. See reply #123.

and I want to install ML on my M50. Can someone step by step explain this to me?
See reply #124

So I've formatted my card

And I smell macOS. Please use disk utility and erase card first.

Red blinking is the message from older builds telling you what you have done: Using an incompatible firmware. Remove battery and card. Insert battery (but not card) and startup cam.
You can use any "clean" card (formatted in cardreader, formatted in cam after) to downgrade cam's firmware.

Not for sharing here. ML team considers public sharing/posting ROM dump contents violating Canon's IP rights. 2 options:
- Shout out and hope someone will reply by PN to a new member.
- Prepare a card with a ROM dumper and find a way to use it with an M50.

Sounds like an epic trip!

That's the spirit!

@IDA_ML: Yes, not sure about the drone idea, either. But I have some months for preparations and I suppose I will take the risk.
Fluid head is out of the question and everything motorized, too. You may have missed the part "I want to keep my photo gear light." Yepp, I know a drone doesn't move itself most of the time ...
I owned a 85/1.8 about a decade ago. My mileage varies, I think: Didn't get used to it. And it weights as much as three 50/1.8 STM.

I may have made a mistake: I wanted to ask about drones able to operate well in highly elevated areas. Quito has about the same elevation as the highest paved pass in the Alps, the Altiplano's (Bolivian Plateau) height averages about 3750 meters (12,300 feet) and the highest road open to public goes up to about 5750 m (18,800 feet). Of course, the drone's engines doesn't suffer like combustion engines but rotors will have a hard time in thin air.

I will visit South America by motorbike. 5 months, I think. I want to keep my photo gear light. Just travel tripod, 100D/SL1 and some "plastic" lenses (EF-S 10-18, EF-S 18-55, maybe an 18-135 USM). Landscape, panos, some architecture, mostly. Thinking about adding a (small) drone to this. Does not have to carry a 100D! And no intention to accompany the bike while driving. But:
- 1080p video + higher res stills, if available. RAW for stills, please!
- must do have some high altitude abilities

No experience with drones, yet. And no unlimited budget.

Format card using cardreader, format in cam after.

I could prepare a preset for testing. Let me know if any interest here 650D users...

Just got informed there is a change of plans and I have some time at hand. Preset welcome!

Read text and links in experimental build page below "4K raw video recording; lossless compression" and you will find a line "Branch: crop_rec_4k_mlv_snd". It might take some time to get into dev lingo ...

The version you are using doesn't contain You have two options now:
Run and (optional) if you want to record sound in cam.
Run without There is no sound option available for this module within nightly build.
If you want higher resolutions with these builds you have to enable crop mode by pressing loupe/magnifiy button in liveview. Don't expect continuous recording though. Uncompressed 14 bit RAW in 1080p24 will just bordering cam's card interface speed limit.

If you want to take part in the 4k-ride you have to switch to crop_4k experimental build. You will find some useful information about those modules in experimental build page.
