No


* Complete feature list:
   - zebras, focus peaking, spotmeter, histogram, waveform, vectorscope (in playback mode)
   - exposure bracketing: shutter, ISO, flash; 2x0.5 ... 9x5EV; auto mode (covers the entire dynamic range).
   - DOF bracketing (changes aperture and shutter while keeping exposure constant)
   - Intervalometer
   - Mirror lockup (shortcut key, or link to self-timer)
   - Flash exposure compensation (-10...+3EV) - not tested
   - Flash / no flash (like in fuji 6500) - not tested
   - Display saturation (grayscale/normal/oversaturated)
   - Fast zoom (one click goes to 100%, like on 5D3/1Dx)
   - Quick erase (like on 5D3)
   - "Ken Rockwell" zoom (press Zoom In after you took a picture, without pressing PLAY)
   - Exposure adjustment in playback mode (very rough)
   - Timelapse playback -
   - In-camera help (press INFO)
   - Benchmark (check read/write speed of the card)
   - Display operating system internals (tasks, free memory)

So, the title of this thread now starts with [UNMAINTAINED]

Does that means there's no sense checking here any more for updates?

I know the 5dc is an old clunker now but it would be nice to see someone step up to the plate and take on this development.

No takers?

It means it's up to you to step forward and contribute :-)

Theres been people willing to contribute $.

Theres just no-one doing any development.
Coutts was doing it for a while but after he bricked his camera I think he lost interest.

I'd help with development but I know nothing about the OS these cameras use.

Use M mode.

In Adv Bracketing, if I use manual mode and set exposures to anything higher than 5, I get duplicate exposures. If I choose auto detect, I don't get duplicates, but often only get 3 to 5 exposures. How can I shoot 9 true bracketed exposures?

hi! first post.

i´ve been using magic lantern since i bought my 5d ~a month ago and i´m lovin´it! (both the 5d and ml).

i have a 1d, 350d (chdk) and 500d already but the iq on the 5d just blows me away. especially since i like to tweak my pix quite a bit. just love the noise. so fine grain and beautiful quite in a class of its own compared to my other cams. i guess what i´m getting at is that the 5d really seriously still is a really good camera, almost 10 years later (tac sharp images even at pixel level b/c the weak aa-filter and my prime lenses. also all iso levels very usable while on my 500d even iso 100 is not what i´d consider usable even though it is the newest of them all by far. 2009 i seem to recall) and it would be a shame if the development of ml for it would end here. ml just extends the usability of the camera quite far and when such a great sensor sits at the heart of it there is not much limiting what could still be done with it. off the top of my head i see only a couple of h/w "limits" that can not be overridden by software thus making the camera more "modern":

 - better af (not /really/ missing it though i tend to prefer my 1d for street photography & sports etc and i can´t deny lusting after 6d:s -0.5ev low light focus capabilities living up here in the north (finland)
 - faster write speeds & bigger buffer. (almost never a problem)

 - liveview (would mostly like it to manual focus accurately for tac-sharp focus)


what have you guys missed or what would you like to see in future releases of magic lantern for the 5d? here´s something off the top of my head: (just wishful thinking)

 - bulb timer or mod. i had to buy a remote release cable because the bulb mode in the 5d does not make any sense to me. why in the world can´t the shutter in bulb mode just work as a on/off switch: press once to open suhtter, press again to close shutter. bulb mode is most commonly used for very long exposures, and the way it is configured now you have to manually keep the shutter button pressed as long as you want the sensor exposed. what were they thinking??

 - dual ISO

- i love to configure so i´d like to have more control over the information displayed on the lcd:s and maybe even the viewfinder

 - i dislike (actually really really hate, despise) the blue light shining into my eyes when mirror lockup is enabled. maybe the "warning" light could be the top lcd light instead? (would be handy too)

 - more options on af/mf modes and auto iso etc. i think i have to re-analyze a bit before coming up with more realistic best-case expections b/c i´m not sure most of these are even possible software-wise


i´m sorry for rambling on, speaking lots but saying very little (at least of any value). i guess i just wanted to keep this thread going b/c not much has happened here for a while and this thread seems like our last thread of hope although realisticly at least for now all hope is lost. also i want to show devs, admins and the community at large that there still are people craving after 5dc ml updates. and for a good reason, too. not just nostalgia reasons. not that any of it matters if nobody has the skills AND the drive AND the time AND the patience AND the re(sources) etc to continue working on 5dc ml. i would have the patience and the drive but no skills and very little time which seems to be the case with most of you(?)

now, i´m off to install ml on my 500d and try out auto iso just for a laugh. (i think i´ll actually either laugh or cry when i see the noise)


thanks and sorry
michael



edit: evf -> viewfinder

Quite a few people are using this version with no reports of camera damage. However, take note that this is BETA software with no support.

If you read back thru the posts here you'll see that a few people have had problems with the bracketing functions.

You can just delete it from your CF card or you can follow the instructions to uninstall the boot flag. That will return it to factory settings.

I've been using ML with no problems until today.  My CF card went corrupt and ended up with loads of strange characters for file names, managed to recover my pictures  (then reformat card) but since then I am missing my ML files - which I've reloaded onto the card but my 5DC menus are screwed. 

I've got no menus after format, so can't update Firmware to re install M or v1.1.1L, also custom functions & reset are missing so in a bit of a pickle, any help would be appreciated.  Tried reformatting on PC & Camera, then adding ML files but can't access  update firmware!!

UPDATE***  Found out not all of the menus are displayed when the camera is set on Auto....... DOH!!  RTFM

This happened to me as well last summer - not corrupted card but menus screwed up or missing. I had to reformat card and re-boot camera to factory settings and try numerous time to update the firmware.

I was starting to get a real woozy feeling that I had trashed my near-new 5Dc and was getting sweat on my forehead.

I  can't tell you the exact sequence of event but I just tried numerous time to reformat and re-run the update to undo the boot flag. Finally it worked.

Note - I don't use this software any more. a couple of weird happenings and the fact that this web site now says its UNMAINTAINED causes me to be wary of continued use of it.

No, if you look at the first page you'll see the functions supported.


However, it does cause your menus to disappear. Not sure if that's a bug or a feature

Note that this is an unsupported/unmaintained beta version.

Hi! I installed it in on my old 5dC and now I can't take pictures (I press the shutter button and nothing happens, but it reacts to focus half-press) and I can't see the camera menus.
Can anyone help me to recover from here??

Just format your CF card

Or you can re-run the install program which uninstalls the bootflag - then format your CF card.

To the 5Dc ML developer, the Old vision CHDK has   Noise reduction ,My 5Dc has so many bad pixel at iso 1600,If new build can fix it ,It's good to all 5Dcer.

At the last, My English is bad ,please don't laugh at it ;)

There is no developer and there is no one maintaining this software. Its a beta version that has some problems and has been pretty much abandoned for the past year.
