Re: Canon 6D / Firmware 1.1.6
« Reply #125 on: July 17, 2015, 10:02:36 PM »
Hi there!
I understand there are no audio features currently available in the nightly builds of Magic Lantern for the Canon 6D. Is there any suggestion about how to get them until they become fully available in the nightly builds?
Install the "new-sound-system" branch? Any other options, besides the "wait and hope"?

thanks!

The nss branch currently doesn't even merge, there's a conflict in mlv_sound and the collisions are such that I personally cannot figure out what is vanilla-updated or nss. If you look at the commits, it's safe to say w/o new dev resources you're in for a longer wait: https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/branch/new-sound-system

Any other options, besides the "wait and hope"?

Other than that specific mlv module, I can offer to share my personal 6d build with nss on a 100% absolutely strictly "no warranty at all" and "no questions asked ever" basis if forum policy allows for it.

The build works fine for me and Maqs somewhat tested a merged build, too - that's why my idea is to merge the nss branch at least as a 6d compile-time feature so it goes straight to nightly as the lack of audio is such a severe drawback.

Ok, here you go if you want/need audio: UNSUPPORTED 6D NSS TEST RELEASE

1. Download official 6d nightly, unpack & install: https://builds.magiclantern.fm/
2. Delete /ML/modules/ directory to be on the safe side
3. Download my 6d nss build, unpack & overwrite: link removed
4. Smell the sensor burning :-p

This has been built with the latest gcc 4.9 and launchpad's libc_nano library, so I would advise against mixing these binaries with others with the stock toolchain. Don't expect me to update this regularly, if at all. I didn't test video, and it contains an older mlv_play module from the nss branch since I was unable to merge trunk to it. But stills shooting is just fine for me, and you can even listen to mp3 audio with your 6d now :-)

Canon 6D / Firmware 1.1.6 updated but I can't install 1.1.6 ML - need help?
« Reply #128 on: July 22, 2015, 03:07:58 AM »
I have downloaded 1.1.6 and updated firmware on two of my 6D's - and then put ML 1.1.6 onto the SD. However, I cannot install it once it's on the SD card - the Menu is the same that came with the Canon. I reformatted a 32 gig and 16 gig SD and neither will Install the ML - although the 1.1.6 is on the card - and the firmware is updated. Please help - I can't install?  I am a bit confused about all the talk about "downgrading to 1.1.3 - when it appears 1.1.6 is the latest version."  Thanks much - going to Paris tomorrow - so I'm in a bit of a hurry.

Hi there,
i update canon firmware from 1.1.3 to 1.1.6 and magic lantern too.
I have problem with features "FPS override". Sometimes the live view screen becomes all (sometimes partially) white.
To solve the problem, i should turn off the camera.
You know how to fix it?

thank you!!

Re: Canon 6D / Firmware 1.1.6 - GPS Power off
« Reply #131 on: July 29, 2015, 12:59:05 PM »
Since I upgraded to Firmware 1.1.6, I notice that the GPS Power Save feature of ML behaves slightly differently. With 1.1.3, Power Save kept the GPS active as long as the 6D was switched on, and deactivated it when switched off. Now with 1.1.6, Power Save will deactivate the GPS whenever the 6D goes to sleep mode, even if it is on. As a result, each time the 6D is reawakened, the GPS has to look for the position again, resulting in loss of information due to the time it takes to make a fix.

Has anyone else noticed this? Is the change intentional and may we ask for reversal to the previous behaviour?

It's "normal"  casual behavior how it works on 6D, same with 113. Just press zoom button to get normal look.

I don't have a audio Menu. Is this the way it is with the 6D?
I'm not sure if my external mic is used by the camera. Kinda sounds the same as the internal... How can I prove it?
Is there a way to level the audio manually without going into the canon menu?
Thanks

Update on corrupt SD cards. It seems my problem lies in PNY memory. But now a bigger issue has cropped up. The recovery of these Sd cards use to be a snap with OS X up to Yosemite now with El Captain they totally revamped disk utility and it won't even fix the cards now. Had to locate an older Mac mini to fix the corrupt card. (One click on Repair) I will update as Apple keeps updating their software that is in public beta.

1280x720 resolution in combination with 24/25 frames per second is about the max resolution for continuous shooting.

My 64gb card has gone awry and demands format, in camera and in Windows. 32GB works as it should. I format it or what? It has/had Magic Lantern on it and I'm not sure how to wisely reinstall.

Format card in cam, copy extracted nightly build contents to card and run firmware update.

It's not just in raw mode. U can try with raw therapee but no matter what u do there will always be visible.(well u can take that part on a single frame and track ur video, but that doesn't work in all cases)  so U need to avoid this by taking less sharp footages while shooting or get a filter for moire that u put over ur censor or crop mode. Gd luck

Avoiding would be possible, too:
- VAF in non-crop mode
- Crop mode
