Shoot preparation / Re: Getting the perfect exposure
« on: August 11, 2013, 02:24:53 PM »
ETTR is often misinterpreted as overexposure = blown highlights. So do you but it is just not.
ETTR's origined as a tool for still photographers.
Are you talking stills or video?

@nanomad:

From your post http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=3697.msg44640#msg44640

Trap focus is not working on the 650D because canon isn't updating the "realtime" focusinfo anymore
Unless you have the lens set to AF  ::)"

Same issue with 1.0.4?

There must be some sort of typo. "UDMA10" doesn't exist.

Exposure time in these shots is not 1/8000 s by any chance?

So I take it what is meant by "removing" ML from the "camera", is simply the act of "deactivating" the camera's bootflag?

Exactly!
EDIT: Well, I found a post by one of the developers about which data is actually written to the cam when using ML. It's more than the flag only and I don't know if all data sets will be reset. And i have to say, it doesn't bother me at all. As long as Canon/Canon Support doesn't act wild on this matter and they had not until now.

Are all CF cards bootable by default?  Or are they made to be bootable by ML during the initial card installation

By default *no* CF-card is bootable. EOScard utility will do this and it will copy the ML files to the card.

PS: You're not covered completely: If you put an "ML-Card" into your "ML-free" cam and format it there, ML data (and settings) will be lost.

Raw Video / Re: RAW 1080/720 what is the difference?
« on: August 09, 2013, 01:23:23 PM »
But why is the difference in number of frames?

More data per frame -> less frames fitting inside given space.
And the fact you aren't able to see much difference in resolution between 1080p and 720p may be subject to discussion.

Let me guess: You opened card door, too and did it very fast after turning the switch?
Then we have this issue on 7D, too.

To run ML a so called "bootflag" has to be set on the camera. A camera with bootflag set will look for a *bootable* card with ML (directory, files) on it.

Cam boot flag     Card                                              Result
=======================================
Not set                bootable, ML files inside               ML will not be loaded, camera behaves like intended by Canon
Not set                 bootable, no ML files inside          ML will not be loaded, camera behaves like intended by Canon
Not set                 Not bootable, no ML files inside    ML will not be loaded, camera behaves like intended by Canon
Not set                 Not bootable, ML files inside         ML will not be loaded, camera behaves like intended by Canon

Set                        bootable, ML files inside               ML will load at startup
Set                        bootable, no ML files inside          ML will not be loaded, camera will be stalled at setup, no display -> remove battery!
Set                        Not bootable, ML files inside         ML will not be loaded, camera behaves like intended by Canon
Set                        Not bootable, no ML files inside    ML will not be loaded, camera behaves like intended by Canon         

If you format your card using the camera there are two options if ML is loaded:
Format and keep ML (default)
and
Format and delete ML
If you format your card using a cardreader or a camera where ML is not loaded all ML data on this card will be lost.

Noch ein bisschen ausfuehrlicher:
Nach dem Initialisieren der Kamera (Bootflag setzen, einmalig), kannst Du jede beliebige Karte verwenden. Wenn Du mit ML arbeiten willst, muss diese Karte 2 Bedingungen erfuellen: Sie muss - wie oben erwaehnt - bootfaehig sein und dazu muessen die ML-Dateien drauf sein. EOScard macht das in einem Aufwasch. Dann holst Du Dir jeweils von satrianis Dropbox die neuesten Versionen und kopierst die entpackten Dateien auf *alle* Karten, von denen Du ML laufen lassen willst.
Verwendest Du mehrere Karten? Dann kannst Du einen Abgleich der Einstellungen erreichen, indem Du diese einmalig in ML einrichtest und dann die MAGIC.CFG auf die anderen Karten kopierst. Geht leider nicht ueber die Kamera, das geschieht am besten am PC mit Kartenleser.

Please read http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7473.0 and - after reading - rephrase your questions still open (or new ones).

Native 1080p/24 or 1080p/25 in RAW (= not resized): Don't see that one in my crystal glass.
You know Canon's "1080p" output is resized, denoised, sharpened, etc.?

Ciao
Walter

PS: Your confusion is understandable. MLs main page doesn't cover latest developments. You have to look into the forum to keep up-to-date.

If you had to *create* this folder you have either the wrong version or didn't follow the instructions or (sh*t happens) the installation went wrong. Do as advised here.
If done properly the folder exists after installation.

General Help Q&A / Re: 7D Dual ISO Photo How to do ?
« on: August 08, 2013, 11:51:54 AM »
Do you have "Dual ISO" showing up in the "Module" tab?
If so: Load modules and it will show up in another tab.
If not: Format your card with NTFS via your cardreader and follow http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7464.0
Don't forget to download the most recent modules created by Audionut!

And lastly what options would you suggest for the buddying photographer to experiment with?

For night shots:
Advanced Bracketing, of course!
Aunt Edit(h) wants to mention Intervalometer, too.

You might want to test time lapse video. Can be done with ML without wearing out shutter/mirror: Use movie options and decrease fps.

ETTR for single exposure shootings.

When support ML 1.0.4 for 128 SDXC Card of 128GB?

ML *is* supporting cards bigger than 32 GB. There is just one installation step (initialising the camera) which won't work. Therefore you need a card < 64 GB once to pass this limitation. After initialising the camera you can run ML from your 128 GB card.

What is, when i take the SD Card out,does it still work ML?

ML is not replacing the firmware. It is more like a program on your computer loaded at startup. Therefore: No card with ML software on it -> ML is not running.

What is EyeFi Card?

Google (or any other search engine) is your friend.

And I Have the Firmware 1.0.1 on my Canon,shall i use ML under 1.0.4 or ?

The most recent ML version requires FW 1.0.4.

If you turn your camera on and off ML will be loaded. If this worked for you until now there is no use changing the method.
If however you turned the camera off and turned it on again with SET pressed ML was indeed deactivated.

In simplified computer terms: ML is a task/program loaded at startup and waiting for action. If SET is pressed it will not be loaded and therefore not waiting for action.

To access the ML interface you have to press the trash button and you can use the same button to go back to Canon's own interface.

Remove card and *both* batteries and let it rest for about half an hour. Then try again without card inserted.
