Agreed, nice to see you over here on the 100D build thread @nitfreak, I also have one of these in the family and it is a very nice little camera, it was my primary before the 70D.

BUG REPORT: Since I installed ML ("B" branch) on my 70D I noticed that sometimes image panning and magnification via touch and pinch respectively stops working. It is difficult to reproduce reliably. I shoot a pic, I zoom in, sometimes panning via touch works, sometimes it does not. It exhibits the same behavior even if "quick zoom" under "image review settings" is turned off (but it does not seem to occur if I then restart the camera).

I would like to know if others experienced the same.

I would like to second this bug, I am having the same behavior on my 70D rev B running release alpha6.  Pinch zoom & touch panning does not work for me anytime I've tried to use it.

Installed ML Alpha 6 the other day.  I noticed that the internal temperature isn't being shown as it was with Alpha 5b, although this isn't a big issue but the other problem I have found, is the exposure simulation won't turn off in the movie mode, although it turns off in photo mode OK.  Is there something I need to do?
@Fatherjacks57 - Internal temperature display was disabled in code since 5b, and will be until nitfreak can sort out the temperature discrepancy that existed.

Exposure simulation on the other hand sounds like a bug.  I'll crosscheck this on my camera...

Thx to Nikfreak for the "tip".. when i was installing  (for me A version ) i saw the countdown in the bottom.
And for  @TechnoPilot Klugschei├čer, you don't have to be rude... after all, big wins coming with small steps.  Since 3 years i developing my own firmware for smartphones. I don't think that 1.6mb update gonna be problem for me...

Keep with doing great work developers... im with you 100%
@devomk - It was not meant at all to be rude or insulting, but instead just a bit of a reality check on the efforts put into answering searchable questions.

I hate to say to those that seem to be having a hard time figuring out how to install or uninstall ML, this was my first ever time using the software on a Canon camera and it was very easy to install and even simpler to uninstall.  Something I really want to thank Nikfreak for tackling since the Rev B release.  I just feel that with it being SO SIMPLE now, he, along with the rest of the testers, should not have to dedicate so much time to items that are not bug correction related.

Honestly the only thing I wish that was easier was rolling the install over onto my other cards without having to use extra software to make them bootable.

While I think it is great that we are improving the instructions for using the software, I feel like the information is already quite accessible and if you are unable to do the basic research, then perhaps an Alpha build isn't for you.  Just my two cents and should be taken with a grain of salt as a techie, but I really wanted to weight in on the efforts that are having to be made on items that are very easily sorted out with a little Googling or reading.

@TechnoPilot - softness is only by VF not in LV and i calibrate lens few time but one time is +3 next time is +9 or +12, send to canon and back my camera and lens without fixed problem, and the 7D MARK II have the same problem but now with the new firmware 1.0.4 problem is solved....
@masterhks - I hate to say but that sounds like either a specific problem with your body or lens.  I have not had any problem with my 70D on my f1.2, f1.4 or f1.8 lenses other then the need for one of them needing a calibration value that does fix it long-term.  I hate to say but I'm pretty positive what you are talking about though is not a general firmware issue for the 70D, are in the scope of Magic Lantern at this point, and definitely aren't in the scope of this alpha build.

In the next ML update i like to developer fix softness focus on wide open lens, i contact canon to ask for new firmware update for AF fix but from canon tell me no more updates for 70D this is ridiculous..
@masterhks - It would seem you either need your glass calibrated, your body, or both, but I have zero problem with very fast glass on my 70D including f1.4 and f1.2.  This has nothing to do with firmware.  Also I will point out that if you have the controlled environment to do it, you can also adjust the focus system to compensate on a lens by lens basis in the 70D, much like the 1D series originally pioneered.

@maitimaus, This is largely speculation and I do not feel like finding out if this is how ML is on other cameras but, I think its a safe bet to say that... When shooting RAW the digital ISO's are disabled so we are left with the actual ISO's as options only. Also any iso inbetween exposure 'changes' you see in camera could be considered just live view simulation?

I was going to wait and let someone else answer but since no one has, maybe someone will correct me if I'm wrong.
@chrisfrancia, @maitimaus - This was also my assumption.

Can someone help me with this id be very greatful
This is also something that I will be needing in a few months time, can we figure out how to make this an option in the ML menu for future releases?

I updated today to the Nightly.2015May10.70D111B :)


Another question: Is it normal that the ML menu is automatically closed after 6 seconds?

The ISO issue I will let someone else address, but as for the random menu closure, this is a know ML bug that, if I'm not mistaken, was first seen in the build for the EOS M and occurs when opening the ML menu from LiveView.  There may not be a workaround for this in the near future.  If you are needing to be in the menu for an extended period of time, switching over to photo mode without LiveView will allow you to stay in it for an extended period.  What may also work, although something I have not checked yet, but it may also work when LiveView needs reactivation after changing shooting modes in video mode.

Hope this helps!

@technoPilot: temperature display was incorrect and therefore removed to avoid unnecessary confusions / discussions.
@nikfreak - This makes a lot of sense, I am curious though, you mentioned on the same post as the release that someone let you in on the formula to convert the readings to real temperatures.  Are you still working on implementing this, or was it still not correct?  Let me know if you need any further help with correcting this.

Also, just to directly say, amazing work on ML for the 70D, I am loving using it on my "b build" camera.  The latest build has really added to the stability overall of the Alpha.  The only two items that I have directly noticed, is that the overlay bitmap is very slow to reload anytime the ML screen is redrawn, I'm not sure if this is normal behaviour, but it sometimes takes up to 10 seconds.  The second is more something I am just feeling like I am missing while shooting, and I'm assuming it is because you have not gotten to debugging that module yet, that is the lack of ability to draw audio meters on the screen.

Thanks again for the amazing work so far!

First of all big thanks to nikfreak! I think ML runs for such early build very stable :)
my camera (B Version) only crashed sometimes because I pressed the zoom button during a raw shot, but now I know not to do that ;)

With my SanDisk 16GB 80MB/Sec card I can record RAW with the following specs (all 2.39:1 aspect ratio):
1824x764@23,976 => 15s
1504x630@23,976 => 300s (5 minute)
1472x616@23,976 => seems to be continuous

with 5X Zoom:
3456x1320 => 34 frames
2880x1206 => 50 frame
1920x804 => 170 frames

But I noticed, that the camera temperature is displayed wrong:
ML told me after some raw shooting 58C but later in ExifTool I checked the meta data and it was 49C!
another test: ML 46C and ExifTool 42C!
Is it possible to change there something?
@maitimaus - What version of the nightly are you on?  The latest which was a less official release I think (seemed a little more like a directly reply to some issues) is the May10th release, this release directly solved the known readout temperature error. 

Though admittedly from my experience now running the May10th build for a week, I just never have the temperature displayed on screen and can't figure out how to turn it on from any of the menus.

@Nikfreak, perhaps you could comment on the now lack of temperature display?

Walter, I have read the stupid first post about 10,000 times. It does not state how to uninstall. Unfortunately this forum has a terrible way of actually searching within this particular thread. Instead of being a d&ck why not actually post how to uninstall it if you know how?
@chmteacher - If you take the time to read the thread, even only the last dozen pages, you would very clearly have seen how to uninstall the lastest 70D alpha of ML, remember this is not an official release, this is an Alpha and if you are unwilling to make the effort to take the time to read even the latest of the development thread then you should not be testing the Alpha software on your camera.  Perhaps this forum's search function is not the greatest at time, but being arrogant and demanding to those who are taking the time to respond to try to answer your question when it is their own initiative is not very nice.  We are all just trying to further the community here.

@ShootMeAlready - That is just what the glorious Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 Art looks like out of the box, I honestly can't say enough about how this is the perfect all around zoom lens for the 70D that is available right now for both photography and video.  I have compared what I can get out of it directly with shots taken by a friend of mine who is running a 5D mkII and dropped more then I paid for my body and this lens on the new Canon 24-70mm f2.8 USM II and the Sigma 18-35mm Art matches his setup for not only sharpness with actually the same preceived megapixels, but also for actual depth of field and low light performance, yet focuses better and has a less vignetting and even a little less chromatic aberration.  I was blown away at how well this not only matched up to his setup, but actually out performed it.  The only thing I could do with is a little more reach then 35mm so it actually equated to 70mm, since the 35mm only gives you an effective 56mm.  Honestly though I don't really care, I'm in gear lust of my own setup with this, here is another shot of it below for fun! :)

Now as for the TP-Link, it uses a specially configured flavor of the open source router firmware OpenWRT available here . Just ensure you use the correct revision for the MR3040 that you purchase as they had two revisions if I recall correctly.

Anyways I wanted to answer your questions, but we should keep the discussion here to the ML port to the 70D.  Please feel free to message me privately if you or anyone else has any questions.

Honestly, if you want WiFi with video, just buy a TP-Link MR3040 and install the DSLRController firmware onto it.  It is a far more power and faster WiFi device then what is in the camera and it is far easier to use! I'm sorry but what Canon implemented for WiFi in the camera and the cludgy interface they made to set it up is sadly disappointing, especially considering they had a touchscreen to work with.  I tried the 70D's WiFi function a couple times and compared it to the TP-Link, onboard WiFi could not even give me smooth consistant framerates in liveview when in hotspot mode, the TP-Link always does even in some pretty RF saturated environments.  The only time I found the camera would give decently smooth liveview over it's own WiFi was when I made it join my home's local network and then connected to it with DSLRController.  Plus with the TP-Link it is as easy as plugging it in and turning it on independent of the mode you are in.  For video work, it is always on my camera, mounted off the side of my hotshoe next to the mic.

Now if only ML and the guys from DSLRController could make them function together, then we would be seriously cooking! But we are getting into a relm outside the discussion of this thread.
