Hi guys,
i've tried my 5d mark iii and i'm very impressed. Of course i'm missing the onscreen info and focus picking a lot but i'm loving the silent control for shutter iso and audio, so i can't wait to see the interaction between ML features and Canons.
When do you think it will be ready for few test?

The problem according to Canon is that highlighted af points hinder metering (unlike the 1d4), it seems to be a design flaw with the many af points and Canon already stated that the upcoming solution "might not make everyone happy". On another forum it was already suggested that's because the solution might be "no solution at all" :-p

I've never heard of this before? Do you have a reference to cite? I've never seen the meter change from the current conditions, even under the lowest light that I can still acquire AF with my fastest F/1.4 lenses.

Even if that was the case, the only point I would want illuminated is my active points and strictly for targeting. Once that has been acquired, it only takes a micro second for the illumination to shut off and the meter to accurate measure light. Regardless under my own tests under an EV of .01 with my handheld meter I saw no difference in the meter when it did light up.

YES! ML Mark III. Just got the message on DVXUser and headed on over. ML has been sorely missed after I sold my mark II

It would be really nice if the 5D mk3 would continue to record video past 29min59 sek. I recently used the 5D as a stationary camera to record a gig I was playing and had to have a friend stop and start the camera several times between songs to get the 1 1/2 hour concert. And he missed the last 20 minutes because he mistakenly only pressed stop, not followed by a start...

it's a default function in ml, so it can probably be expected to be there again.

I know its already a function in ML, but Canon 5D mk III already automatically starts a new clip with no gaps between the files when the file size exceeds 4 GB. As far as I understand ML produces a 2-3 second gap between the files.

What a great new to see developpement on 5D MIII  :), I can't shoot without ML anymore... Congratulation to all people working on it, I will donate again...
any possibility to have a usable timecode in 24fps (works only in 25fps) ? also, I don't understand on wich button I can modify value from ML
I'm going to shoot next week (documentary), no autoexec is almost unusable (too long to reload each time the camera is off, do you plan to make it soon ? I have an alphatron electronic viewfinder and the hdmi outpout from my "old" MII is so uggly :-\?
Sincerely
Yvan

The no-autoexec.bin thing is done on purpose for the test builds.
