6D Stability test not there yet?
« on: February 08, 2014, 10:06:58 PM »
Hope that someone else and not the busy Devs will answer:
Am new and think that I did everything right so far concerning FAQ and search function... I wasn't able to find anything!
Where do I find the stability tests? Is there a thread especially for the 6D?

Many thanks in advance!

They were run last year on 112. Maybe a couple of times on 113 after it was ported.

No, I'm already using ML on the 6D and was looking for tests in the debug menu so that I could report and do my humble part to help;) Couldn't find them, though.

In Tragic Lantern it's disabled by default for some reason or another (enable in platform/6d.113/features.h: CONFIG_STRESS_TEST & recompile.). But you don't need this to know that 6d-TL isn't stable (yet) and will crash on you now and again ;-p

Thanks for the explanation. What I experience so far is crashes when in liveview I get thrown out of the menu  back to normal live view which can be annoying at times;) I haven't even installed TL, though. Im running the ML file from that thread:

I have major issues with the raw recording (32Gb Sandisk class 10) but didn't ask so far as I only read through some 20 threads for answers;) Even in lowest res it will crash and show many codes on the screen

I filed a bug report about this on the tracker: https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/issue/1974/6d-in-live-view-mode-ml-menu-times-out . There seem to be a few reports of the same problem.
