General Help Q&A / 6D battery drains while camera is off
« on: May 17, 2017, 06:40:45 PM »

I have the following problem since I upgraded ML to the latest version 2017May07 a few days ago. (didn't happen with my last version at least not that I'm aware of)
The battery drains very fast, also while the camera is turned off. It drains approx. 5% every 15-20 minutes, so after a night it drains the battery empty. It happens with and without plugins loaded and I tried it with 3 different batteries and different lenses as well just to rule out other possibilities.

The problem does only happen when ML has been loaded before turning the camera off. If you use an empty SD or press and hold Set, so it doesn't load and switch the camera off, it doesn't happen.
So I think it is definitely a problem of the ML software.

So yesterday I had a shooting and charged the battery before, and put it in the camera. After like 4-5 hours when my model arrived, the battery was empty.
In the evening I put a empty memory card and a 95% charged battery in the camera and started the cam one time before I went to bed. The next day, the battery was still 95% full.
Today I put the ML memory card, loaded ML, turned the camera off and within a little more than half an hour, the battery went from 95% to 80%.
So today after this test, I left the same SD in, but I pressed set, so ML wouldn't load. When I came back after 2 hours it was still at 80%.

Did anyone else experience major battery drain, even when the camera is turned off?
I noticed that problem now 2 times, each time fully charged battery, did a shoot for like 10 minutes, at the next day the battery is empty.
Happened with original Canon battery as well as a China one.
And it just started a few days ago when I updated to the latest nightly.

Feature Requests / Dual ISO + in-camera DNG creation
« on: April 30, 2017, 07:30:27 PM »
I dunno if that has been requested before, but I read that somebody added a feature that makes it possible to write DNG files instead of RAW.
So I thought maybe one could combine this with dual ISO.

I think it would be a cool feature if, instead of using RAW2DNG, there would be a feature that could encode the dual-ISO files to DNG in-camera.
This feature could be selectable via
a) the menu then select the dual ISO file
b) an option to do its encoding after each photo
c) maybe even work in the background

If I requested nonsense or this has been posted already, please feel free to delete it.

Nope sorry.
Either I forgot to add something or its not there.
AFAIK It should be in the exposure menu but I only got:
White balance
Picture Style
Expo Lock
Expo Presets
Expo Override

Okay thanks, problem is fixed with latest nighly.
But it seems there's no dual ISO for 600D  :(

I've tried every possible combination yesterday, also just deleting and using the nightly (which was my first try). Problem started there.

So by try and error I found out the problem lies within the autoexec.bin from the nighlys. It simply doesn't work with 600D.

I can't install the latest nightlys on 600D as well. I've tried several things, and it seems the autoexec.bin is broken.

Like told here, I overwrote the files from 2.3 stable with the nightly.
If I use the autoexec.bin from the nightly, the camera just won't start. Red LED is blinking like when reading a SD, but it doesn't stop, even when I remove the SD.
I have to completely remove the battery to make it stop.

But everything works fine if I use the autoexec.bin from 2.3 stable release - but then the ML-menu is the same like in stable, I don't get the new features like dual iso.
