General Chat / Re: Control over sensor movement?
October 01, 2017, 01:16:43 AM
This won't work. The sensor doesn't move for cleaning. The filter moves. You never actually clean the sensor, only the filter in front of it. 5DSr has 2 filters, 1 of them is used to cancel the lowpass filter. There's also an IR filter.

(we may already have found one in mint condition for him)

The UK one looks interesting. I wonder how much would it cost to have it repaired properly though

Canon fixes 5DC mirror issues for free. The 5DC line had an issue with mirrors, so Canon does their repair even now, even if the warranty is long over. It's usually just a matter of gluing the mirror back.

Right, it's not just about the sensor. I don't know specs, but it's safe to say that the 7D likely has a bigger memory buffer to store images. The shutter assembly is likely different, and that's important also. The other part is that the 7D has dual processors whereas the other cameras with the same sensor only have 1 processor.

It's much like 2 cars have the same body, the internals could be entirely different and so one may give you much better performance than the other.

the battery is original..

i don't know , why ?

the camera can't check this battery...@@  all battery

The camera may be a problem

"Cannot communicate with battery use this battery?"

Make sure you have all the ML folders copied to your memory card,  not just the .fir file. Also, before you flash, check battery info in the Canon menu and make sure your battery is reporting status.

Why would i ever needed a card reader when i can connect my camera straight to my computer?
You could have answered like this "the only way to get ML on your CF card is with a card reader"
Is this the way you reply to supporters? Go F*** yourself

With a lot of newer devices and operating systems, connect a DSLR, tablet, or phone to your computer may allow you to transfer media files only. Not only that, but you are not usually allowed to copy to device, only from device. ML has gotten much easier to install so it's hardly worth complaining about needing a card reader.

You should support developers for their work, not for a sense of entitlement. If you were offended by the response you received, the internet is not for you. I've been following ML for some time and anyone that has been anticipating a 7D release is probably in the same boat. By this point, most people realize a card reader is needed. It's nothing new.

Hello, just for your information, the download link for the alpha seems to be broken!

Thanks a lot for your work and keep on rockinĀ“

Best regards

Just tested it. It's working. Refresh and give it another go.

Here's an image of that battery. I have two more I'll test after charging and see how that goes.

The problem is not that it's a third-party battery, the problem is that the battery is not chipped. I have 2 non-chipped batteries, and like yours, it needs to be charged with the charger that came with the batteries because they won't charge on the Canon charger. Non-chipped batteries will not work with this alpha 7D ML release.

It's not that the batteries don't have enough power, it's that the battery check breaks the 7D boot process (or something, I don't know the technical details.)

edit: I do have 2 genuine batteries from a 7D and 5D2 and I also have 6 other batteries that are chipped, along with 2 that are not chipped. I didn't know about the chips when I bought the non-chipped batteries.

If you have the genuine Canon AC adaptor please test it.
(Mine is a cheap one (~12 bucks) and it has no chip. I wonder if the most expensive Canon has the chip or not.)

Yup, I have one of those cheap adaptors too. I tested it in the grip+a chipped battery and it didn't work. My cheap adapter has the same connectors as the genuine adapter but it must have a similar chip as the batteries.

There is a workaround if you have a battery grip.

1. Insert chipped battery in the right side compartment and leave the battery compartment open.
2. Turn on camera and flash ML.
3. With camera still on, insert AC adapter in left compartment.
4. (optional) remove chipped battery.
5. Close grip battery compartment.

Once that's done, mine shows both batteries as having bad battery life and only a percentage of battery power, but the top LCD on the 7D shows full battery power.

Try at your own risk. I haven't done any extensive tests. I just know that it works that way.

If you purchase third-party batteries, make sure you purchase the batteries that are chipped. Otherwise, you will not get a battery life counter and this 7D ML release will not work for you.

If you have a battery grip, you can use 1 genuine Canon battery and 1 third-party battery and it will work as long as 1 of the batteries is chipped. I assume that'll also work if you use a Genuine Canon battery and an AC adaptor. (I also have one and I can test if anyone wants)

As far as the 7D ML, all I wanted was peaking focus and it works as good as expected. Thanks for the hard work to all the developers.


A pre-mature alpha: the definition of a redundant statement.
