General Help Q&A / 500 mbs CF cards.
« on: March 22, 2014, 10:54:37 AM »
So ive been reading about the imminent release of 500mbs cf cards this year and I was wondering how this will relate to being able to record much higher resolutions continuously like 2560/3584 ect will it be possible or will it be restricted to camera limitations (meaning 5dmk3 that I use) , this is obviously a noob question cause thats what I am at the moment.

ML v123 working great. Installation - piece of cake,  THANKS A LOT!
x3 (2560x1072) is up to 60sec (more then enough for one shoot), comparing to v113 - about 30sec at most.
I'm not sure if it is bug or not. I think everyone has it:
   when in x3 mode, second frame is pink (no image) and the tenth frame is a couple stops overexposed (in v113 the seventh frame was overexposed in x3). Thus ten frames in 2560x1072 are not usable. As for the rest - v123 is much more stable then v113 TO ME.
Great stuff.  Feels like there is no limits there for ML team.

Could I ask what settings you are using to record 5x zoom 2560x1072 , ie-aspect ratio , fps , fps override ? and what type of card and its specs as the best I can get so far on my Komuterbay 64gb 1000x at 5xzoom is 2240x938 continuous record at 25 fps in plain old raw.

MAGIC , Updated firmware 113-123 , installed ML tested Bootflag on/off (works perfectly) Recorded three 2 minute MLV with audio , got split files  , then put Files to 4gig Exfat ON and Recorded Again no probs , this version MLV in 123 seems the most stable one ive used so far , also tested RAW and H.264 all working as expected.

Thanks ML

Jafa, thank you for uploading this video.  The difference is there but quite minimal.  Great to see how little the difference is.

If I could ask a favor regarding this situation... Could you shoot a short video showing the top LCD of both cameras waking up from sleep in photo mode?  I have been wrestling with this bootflag thing for along time and am (maybe was) hesitiant to install ML to keep resale value intact.  It would help me and probably others to see exactly what the bootflag "issue" does.  I know it might be asking a bit but it would really help me out.


Not at this time sorry , ive just reinstalled ML on the camera and ive done the reinstall - uninstall process 4 times over the past two days and every time I do it its nerve racking , for my money its worth installing ML as the Raw footage is beautiful to work with and once uninstalled there is almost no noticeable difference in wake up time as the vid shows ,as for stills I cant comment as I never tested that side when I uninstalled ML.

Obviously the slower one is the one that had ML installed , again I apologize for wasting everyone's time.

Ok looks like I messed up was testing cameras side by side without any cards in , no delay between them , formatted two cards put one in each , ran test side by side again and there is a delay on wake up compared to the other camera so I guess this means the bootflag is still there and open.
I apologize for causing a storm in a tea cup.

Im uploading a vid so you can judge for your selves.

I know and that worries me , I didnt want to make a statement that ive found anything significant cause maybe I haven't

I do however know that this only works if I format the ML sd card in my camera , If I try to do this by formatting it on the pc , then I still get the lags at start up and wake up .

If I can borrow another camera today then I will film both mine together and you can make your own minds up.

Ive already done all that as ive explained in the posts above and ive owned both cameras from new for over a year now , I may be a noob here but I know my cameras and their  behaviors as I use them alot.
Im not here to jerk people around and I dont know how relevant this is , all I know is that by this method I got my camera back to 113 and it now behaves exactly the same from start up to record as its brother.

Both cameras when half pressing the shutter button click on at the same time , and the live veiw screen comes on at the same time when button is depressed fully for recording they both start recording at the same time.

Well, are the cameras up again without delay or is there a 2 seconds wait?

NO , no two second delay on startup or wake up , as ive said I have two 5dmk3's one of which never had ML installed there is from the physical tests of pressing buttons at the same time no difference.

Ive just ran a side by side test of that as well and the wake up from auto off (one minute) is exactly the same.

Its a 5D MK3 , with a Komputerbay  64 gig cf card , ive solved the problem now , i went back to the EOS card site and discovered I had to press ALT-F to get the extra format options , ran some tests and I can now record over 4gb clips.

there will most likely be a 1 to 2 second delay when waking up the camera from sleep which AFAIK is the only annoying trace of ML left behind (ala the altered bootflag).

A virgin camera will wake up instantly from sleep

I have two MK3's , one of which has never had ML on it and I ran some start up tests this morning , both cameras have exactly the same wake up duration , when I pulled the normal SD card out of the one which I had previously installed ML on it was even quicker than the other one .
From the limited tests ive run with ML raw installed the bootflag issue was something I had resigned to accept as the footage I can get just blows me away ML, IS for me, a keeper , this is just a bonus as in a year or two I will probably be selling these on and upgrading.

Dont know if this means anything as im just a noob with all this but I formatted my SD card in camera today which was running ML Raw , removed it and reinserted it and my camera had reverted back to standard firmware 113 from the ML Next version ,  cant find any ML on the camera and its runs without any cards in it at all , ive since now re installed and uninstalled ML twice just to make sure , the only reason i posted this cause I assumed I would never be able to get my camera back to run normally because of the Bootflag issue , but from what ive seen it seems to function just as it used to before I installed ML , feel free to enlighten me as ive already said im still very new to all of this.

Shot with 24-105 using 160+vari nd for day shots and 3200 no nd for night shots
f. was between f4-f10 depending on scene.
This was my first test with the ML Raw hack installed just to see what it was capable of , so far the results have blown me away , its leaps and bounds above the standard h.264 codec for color , dynamic range and detail and once you get used to processing the raw files its not so much hassle as some people make out .
Note-you may see some aberrations,noise and flickering , this is not true of the final edit , this is VIMEO compression .

Oh well figured it out for myself , the camera when it sais "cant find ML" is actually loading the firmware , I waited about two minutes looking at a black LV screen and then pressed MENU to find the firmware was now 113-ml-2.3next, I then removed the card to card reader , formatted , placed the rest of the files onto the card ran EOS card and WALLAH ML is now on my MKiii.
My KB 64gb turns up tomorrow , so untill then I cant do any testing , but I will say this.....ive been comparing the wake up speed to my other non ML MKiii and its almost indistinguishable , for me this was the worry as shooting weddings I needed to be able to fire it up and shoot strait away im happy to say this is no longer a worry.


Formated the card in pc then in camera put the bootflag on the card and then back into camera , press to update firm ware and the camera just comes up "ML not found" what am I doing wrong?

Duplicate Questions / Re: How do disable Bootdisk flag on a 5D Mk III
« on: June 20, 2013, 10:02:00 AM »
I need to prepare a special FIR. Short answer: call("DisableBootDisk")

but you really have to double-check that you are not in LiveView (and people managed to go there during first install despite all my double-checks).

Could you expand some more on this subject , ive not as yet installed A3 on my 5d but I was close when I started to read speradic posts from people saying that they were unable to remove the bootflag on - part of the Ml install , is this due to an instalation error on their  part or is this part of the alpha which is being worked on ?
