I never tried to start the camera w/o autoexec.bin.
This could be the problem? The camera is old enough, that it could not turn on w/o the autoexec.bin and bootflag enabled (though I doubt it).

All cameras will lock up if you delete autoexec.bin from the card.

That's weird.
From what I remember from 400D, you can delete the autoexec.bin and the camera boots it's Original Firmware w/o problems. But I could be wrong.

Hi,

Yesterday I bought an 5D classic and I would read the shutter actuation number if possible.
Earlier, I had magic lantern on 50D, and I remember that has shutter count function.
This ML vesrion for 5D classic is suitable for reading the shutter count?

No way to get this information with ML or any other software ...
Only Canon could give shutter count of 5D classic

I just want to shoot a Thanks to the developers. I recently bought a used 5Dc and put beta 4 on it today. All your efforts are still paying off for people. :D 8)

3) i format the cf card from camera
4) i use windows xp to unzip thew mg.zip to the root of the cf card
5) i insert it to the camera in manual mode, go to the menu->firmware update

Some people (including me) had trouble and went back to the old method of using EOScard to make the camera boot from the card. Not sure why but heres a post from an earlier user that had that problem

I followed the instructions but instead of the solid blue light I get a flashing blue light. Any suggestions? I reformatted and did it over again but got the same result.

===================================================
I had the same problem. Only blue blinking light. I solved it by doing this;
-Format card
-Extract the ML files on the card
-Download EOScard and set the bootflag there
-Delete bootable.fir file from card
-Run the firmware update from the camera.

Does anybody have the Beta 3 as download?

I want to test the bulb ramping that was removed in the beta 4. I think i read about that. Hope that someone can help.

Does the classic 5d firmware enable auto ISO?  :)

Hi all.
To devs: I would like to build 5DC binary from source code.
what is the branch/revision of the beta binary?

Is it possible  to build also from master or there are too many differences?
Yes, I understood it is unmaintained, but I would like to play with it.

Thanks

EDIT:
found it:

changeset:   4777:5760fa25cc5c
branch:      unified
summary:     Tag: ML-5Dc-Beta4

I am into photography and I would buy one of those professional cameras. Nikon or Canon which is good for those who want to take landscape photos? Please, I want a camera that is cheap, images of great quality, aesthetics and landscape. Thanks

Hi there,

I am having trouble installing the firmware on my camera and hence was hoping for your help.
Whenever I try to update it, the error message "Update File can not be found" pops up.

Ive tried formatting the card in camera, as well as inside windows, redownloaded the ML firmware again, even tried the EOScard utility to make the card bootable - all with no success.
Is there anything else Ive missed?

The card used is an 8gb Transcend card. Unfortunately no other card is available at this moment.

Hi,

I had this question on IRC - probably the wider audience can help here. I'm trying to forward-port the 5dc platform. Got a few of the source files to compile, but for some reason it looks like the stubs are not pulled in or get defined.

../../platform/5DC.111/gui.c:99:25: error: implicit declaration of function 'unknown_gui_function' [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration] unknown_gui_function( MEM(0x1BD4), event->param );

The unknown_gui_function does exist in stubs.S. In the last working 5dc checkout (back from 2013) this and similar functions are not defined in any header file - so the question is that how are the functions in the stubs get declared?

Thanks,
-w-

I'm looking for a ROM dump for QEMU experiments (mine is incomplete). You may get one from the Debug menu; please send it to me by PM.

If there is still interest, I can try to fix compilation on the latest codebase, then let you continue the port.

Side note: there is a small chance to get LiveView with the full-res silent pic backend, but the front-end functions are not present, so it will require some low-level research along these lines. But my gut feeling says it's doable.

But since this camera has a simpler codebase, this effort might pay off for more recent models as well.

@wigyori: the implicit declaration on this platform uses 32-bit integers for all parameters. So, in this case, you may get away with: void unknown_gui_function(int, int).

Can you run the display test?

So far, no other 5D user tried it, so we also need somebody with a good camera to confirm the test is actually working.

In Beta4 there is no point to dump ROM, is there a release which can do it?

I tried this, hopefully I did it correctly.  :)



ps. I think this message should be added to 1st post or make the instructions more clear for dummies like me.
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=1010.msg16120#msg16120

I'm always having problems with installing ML to my 5D(led just keeps blinking if I do it by 1st message instructions). That usually does the trick if anyone is having problems also.

Hi, thanks for adding 5D classic support. Tried it today - a lot of nice features, but not the ones I need. Actually, I was looking for Dual ISO on 5D. Is it possible to have this feature on 5Dc? :)

My 5D2 recently meet the floor, and I'm using 5Dc since then. I can make dump if you still need it :)

Side note: there is a small chance to get LiveView with the full-res silent pic backend, but the front-end functions are not present, so it will require some low-level research along these

That would be interesting!

Thought I would get the best answer here...

Not directly oriented towards development but I have wondered quite a while now if there is any down side of using ISO3200(H-setting) vs ISO1600 and boosting exposure 1 stop(I've found out that it is more close to +0.91 rather than full stop) in Lightroom?

I did my own tests and really couldn't find a any difference between two of them.

Maybe ISO3200 is very slighty more pleasing, tiny bit less chroma noise and finer grain, but I could be also making that up. I surely thought there is a difference in dynamic range in favor of ISO1600 but absolutely zero diffence. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I guess I start using H-setting from now on(didn't use extended ISOs before this).

I guess that DIGIC II is doing better job than my expensive computer processor and 10 years newer processing algorithms.  :D

@Pharien I used to have a 5Dc! Most favourite still camera I ever had.
As ISO h1 is just digitally boosted by the camera, I would say use 1600, because that will preserve some more highlight details. And your probably just imagining the quality difference :) could do a forensic test though

How to remove bootflag? When I run firmware update again (running Magic Lantern), it shows "Update file cannot be found", even when I unpack fresh copy of Magic Lantern files to this card.

When I used a new, fresh formatted card (so ML will not start), procedure worked - got "blue blinking light", but after inserting first card it booted again to ML...
