General Help Q&A / Re: Fast access screen
« on: July 27, 2012, 10:42:11 AM »

I thought that might be the case regarding the fast access screen, however, it is still accessible in still mode: which I like. I wonder if it would be worth considering a tweak that allows access to faster shutter speeds if the user is in still mode, ie if movie mode is dsiabled. I must say I find the fast access screen useful in LV mode.

The fast access screen seems to fully work in LV still mode, even if movie mode disabled. The only 'limitation' appears to be the 1/24 shutter limitation.

In the Xmas release I was never able to see hyperfocal read out in the ML menu: now I can. Although now it does show it, I think it does not respond when the focal length of a lens is changed. This was what I saw, although in LV I saw the lens focal length. That is it appears to be a process lag.

Finally, I wonder if it's worth considering a user option to (re) position certain LV sub-screens, eg the histogram. In CHDK I can do this and I find this customisation very useful. Also, is the size of the ML histogram fixed or could there be a small, med, lartge option. Many still photograhers use the histogram a lot, especially for expose to right maximisation.

Continue to test out the latest rc on my 50D and still looking great, eg stable and responsive.

One matter continue to 'confuse' me is the fact I can not lower the shutter speed below 1/24 from the fast access buttons, however, the shutter speed can be taken faster via the standard cannon 'wheels' even when the ml fast access screen is active.

Also what are the algorithms behind the shutter and aperture feedback color changes..

Finally, ml says can not calculate hyperfocal (I'm using a sigma lens) but the focus distance is shown by ml and clearly tracks my manual focusing changes.

Thanks for confirming my understanding.

Not sure I understand what you are saying. The min intervalometer increment is 100, thus I am interpreting this to mean ML will stop after 100 images and not one less. Thus, if I play it back at, say, 30 fps, I will have just over 3 secs of 'video'.

Bottom line: I think ML is telling me I can stop after 100, 200, 300 etc images.

Just uploaded my 50D firmware, downloaded RC2.3 and all looks good. Battery drain problems from previous versions of ML seems to have gone away: fingers crossed!

One thing I have noticed, although I may be missing something, is that the intervalometer shoots number can only be changed in increments of 100. Of course I may be missing a trick.

I will carry on testing on the 50D and post anything I find.



PS I PMed Alex on this as well
