5D Mark III - No option to keep ML while formatting
« on: February 21, 2014, 04:24:56 AM »
Hello,

I've been using Magic Lantern since I got my first DSLR years ago (a T2i) and have used it on a 60D and a 6D since then. On each of these bodies, while formatting the card, an option is present to 'keep magic lantern.' On the 5D Mark III, I do not see such an option and I've searched with no success for someone else complaining of the same issue. While I can certainly format my card on my laptop, it's very convenient to have the option to format it on the camera as well. If anyone else has encountered this and can offer any advice, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Earshel

This feature is disabled in code on the 5D3 though I'm not sure why - perhaps because it doesn't support the dual card slots yet.
