Hello, I'm planning to buy 6d, but maybe I'd like to use it as a webcam on streams so I need unlimited runtime and clean hdmi.
I know by design I cant have them, but with can I bypass it with magic lantern firmware (I saw multiple videos as in ML you can complitely disable overlays = clean hdmi, not sure about runtime)

Also, how sturdy shutter is? How long usally it lasts (i.e. 5d mark II lasts for 500k approx.)

Thanks

Ah no raw, that explains it.
The crop modes don’t work with standard h.264 movie recording.
Once te recording is pressed, the camera switches to 1x zoom.

So for higher resolutions, you need to enable raw recording in ML menu.
Go to 5x zoom, hit trashcan button for ML menu. Use q button on raw video option to enter raw video sub menu. Set aspect ratio to 16:9 and scroll to resolution option. On resolution option, you can use the scrollwheel on top of the camera to set desired resolution.

Sorry for the *way too noob* question but when you're saying this nightly build works on 6D right now we assume a downgrade to 1.1.6 from a camera running firmware 1.1.8, right?

I just jumped into a 6D bought second-hand which was already on 1.1.8 and I'm pretty used to run ML on older 450D and 1100D borrowed from a friend for a while right now which certainly doesn't need any downgrades  :P

So I apologize for the totally stupid sounding question amidst a quite interesting crop_rec conversation.  Thanks in advance!

Do i understand correctly that "2480x1396" in the crop mode name only shows maximum theoretical resolution and actual recording resolution depends on selected raw settings (resolution, aspect ration, data format) and sd card specs?

Almost right.
Do i understand correctly that "2480x1396" in the crop mode name only shows maximum theoretical resolution and actual recording resolution depends on selected raw settings (resolution, aspect ration, data format) and sd card specs?

SD card specs don't inlfuence any options, slower SD cards give slower recording times (camera stops recording once the internal buffer is filled up, internal buffer fills up when SD card isn't fast enough to handle the write speed.)

The crop mode actually changes sensor read out settings, so it only reads out that certain part/resolution of the sensor, the rest of the sensor isn't readout at all.
ML raw menu let's you select any recording options, within that part/resolution.

Hey there.
I saw a video on youtube where the creator says he is using the build: magiclantern-Nightly.2020Jul16.6D116
But here on the forum I can't find anything newer then Nightly.2018Jul03.6D116.
Does someone here know where this build is hidden?

Update: Found it: https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:TWJAaqGudUEJ:https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php%3Ftopic%3D15088.1250+&cd=2&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=pl

For those wondering why thread suddenly ends in '19, it was split and put in another subforum.
