you can do wonderful and amazing things with the camera RIGHT NOW, TODAY! and it will only get better in the future, so don't let the monitor resolution prevent you from getting inspired and being creative with the tools you have at your disposal.

Amen

I am thankful that Jesus and MagicLantern exist, because they both change lives!

Alex, will you be able to fix the issue for the HDMI signal and the MArk3 "without" having to wait for lower res and older canons dumps?
its been a year now since i started this thread on bitbucket , and it seems over 2000 people have read this thread here , which was only started a month ago.
i think this shows people are watching this issue very closely... and are interested in it ... right?

Thanks, so now I have the 5D3 pretty well covered, in pretty much all modes.

Do you really have to duplicate post here and at bitbucket!

a1ex develops for Magic Lantern.  This means supporting all cameras where possible.  This means, you will probably have to wait for the other dumps, before a clean and robust codebase is pushed to the nightly builds.

If so many people were interested in it, you would think all of the data the developer has asked for to fix the issue, would have already been delivered........right?

Got the 50D with everything but the composite cables.  I'll try to track them down later today (I'm sure they are at the bottom of a bag somewhere).

Thanks for the answers  ;)

between the time i mentioned that 2000 already read this and right now, only a few hours have passed by, and look for yourself the number is at about 2200, ...thas 100 people have read this just in the last few hours.... so yes, i would consider this thread and this issue of huge interest to users, even if most might not understand how this here all works.
(i am definitely also one of them ,who still doesn't quite get it, how this all here ends up with results so far :-\

Here are the image buffer dumps for the canon 6d PAL mode and NTSC mode (see link below for the data on my google drive).
Will do the image buffer dumps with SD monitor attached later on.
Won't be able to do the image buffer dumps with HDMI monitor attached (Don't have the right cable to connect it to the HDMI on my TV)

Thanks for the dumps.

@Levas, can you double-check the link?

Not much activity here, but I've got a decent number of combinations for the 650D, which also has issues with external monitors.

So... I did the Test for the 70D, although I dont have an HDMI Monitor and no AV cable either... I plugged in the USB cable, in the hope that it would still make a difference if there's something connected to that outlet but it doesnt seem like it. Anyway, I still uploaded the files because maybe NTSC/PAL is still valuable.

Thanks (actually thanks to all contributors) - even without external monitor, the dumps are still very useful.

Missing data:
- 700D
- 100D
- 60D
- 5D2
- 500D
- 550D
- 1200D
- M2 (no rush)

Since the old links are no longer available, I'm going to re-host these files after organizing them. Will also tell which samples are missing external monitor dumps, but I'm not there yet with the emulation.

P.S. Sneak preview of what I'm working on (using one of these dumps for initial tests):



(that's a screenshot from the emulator)



BTW, doesn't the 70D have a 3x crop mode from Canon menu? Couldn't locate the VRAM dumps from this mode (these are labeled as MVC-1080 / RECC1080).

Right on the money as always. I thought the zoom selected from the canon menu was nothign "special" on the 70D (I knew it was on the 600D)
Here's the 3x Zoom for 70D

Missing data:
- 700D

Here we go:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/bcv0r3n7ffg148t/AAAzj-iGeQv4QT5cx3QomCL0a?dl=0

Some of these were tricky to get and the buffers might have been dumped while the camera was still switching modes. That might be where the "PH-UNK" and "PLAY-UNK" come from. The NTSC and PAL were done blind because I don't have a standard definition monitor and cables to check what was going on. Also, I'm sure I tried HDMI-480 on every mode but the image buffers were only saved while recording a movie. Some I tired several times so that's why there are some extra files in there.

Let me know if there's anything missing and I'll give it another try.

BTW--first thing I did was to white balance and turned out I was way off. Well, at least the whole test is consistently off, 2500K, Magenta 9.

I'll also try to get what I can out of the EOSM2 and post it in the same dropbox folder.

[EDIT] Looks like some of the files have a size of 0 so they can't be uploaded to Dropbox. I'll also upload a zipped up archive to preserve these empty files.
