Question about removing ML from rented 5d-MKIII
« on: May 10, 2014, 03:31:58 AM »
Hey there,

Been using my personal 5d MrkIII with ML for several months now and am so happy with it!

For an upcoming shoot, I intend to rent another MrkIII. My question is this: if I install ML for shooting RAW video on it, would it be possible to remove completely at the end of the day? (so I can return it to the store, and they can use a CF card with no ML installed on it - with no issues)

Thanks in advance!

Option A - Camera arrives with firmware 1.2.3)  Downgrade the camera to 1.1.3, install ML, use it, upgrade to 1.2.3, remove bootflag.

Option B - Camera arrives with firmware 1.1.3)  Install ML, use it, upgrade to 1.2.3, remove bootflag, downgrade to 1.1.3.
