Feature Requests / Re: [WONTFIX] DEP mode (not A-DEP)
« on: July 14, 2013, 09:54:40 PM »
Would it work with Quick AF or only with Live AF? If it worked with Quick AF this would already be a large benefit but even with Live AF it would be of some worth, especially in landscape photography, where it is not easy to estimate the DOF.

On a slightly related note, I'd love to see something like the Program mode in Pentax DSLRs.

Wasn't this ever possible on EOS cameras? In P mode if I use the main dial I can change aperture and time changes accordingly to maintain the same exposure. I can change exposure by turning the back dial.

Feature Requests / [WONTFIX] DEP mode (not A-DEP)
« on: July 14, 2013, 02:30:02 PM »
Hello,

some analog EOS cameras like f.e. the old EOS 5 featured DEP mode (not the almost useless A-DEP of later models). You could use an AF field to focus the far point on first half shutter press, then focus the near point on next half shutter press, then point to the desired view and press shutter to release. The camera calculated the necessary values for aperture, exposure time and focused the lens to the appropriate DOF distance.

I found this a very useful feature and never understood why Canon didn't use it in the following models or replaced it with A-DEP where it isn't possible to choose near and far point on your own.

Would this be possible in ML?

General Help Q&A / Re: C1 to C3 custom modes on 5DII

...this seems to be solved.  At least in the latest nightly (which seems to work perfectly on my 5DII after some first tests).

Feature Requests / [IMPOSSIBLE] copy ML to another card

Would it be possible to copy ML to another memory card? Similar like when formating a card?

best regards

General Help Q&A / C1 to C3 custom modes on 5DII
« on: May 13, 2013, 12:16:23 AM »
Hello,

ML 2.3 doesn't seem to recognize if M mode is recorded in one of the custom modes C1 to C3 on the EOS 5D II. This causes HDR bracketing not to work in C1 to C3.

I was told some time ago that this is a ML bug. Does anybody know whether this bug is fixed in an experimental build and eventually could point me to a working version?

best regards
Erik

Forum and Website / start page probably spammed

Hello,

http://wiki.magiclantern.fm/start has probably been spammed. I don't think a german text about Kleiderschränke is the correct content :-)
