1) Test without ML
Turn cam off.
Press SET and turn cam on.

Take a pic (= pic 1).
Record for 12 minutes and take a pic (= pic 2) again.

Turn cam off. Let cam cool down. 30-60 minutes.

2) Test with ML active
Don't press set and turn cam on.

Hi Irv,

Thank you for the reply and good thought. However, I actually have a grip with battery holder. So yeah, no effect. Plus, that part of the camera isn't running hot.

I've also found that the screen position impacts camera heat. It'll run cooler if you swivel it out away from the camera body.

With recents updates on bleading edge versions flexinfo works ok without problems.
I've fixed some positions and cleaned up some parts.

If there is someone interested in testing it:

Please, to anyone who download and test the test build, post your feedback here or in the pull request.
Give feedback also if it works ok,please. Just a simple "confirmed working ok on my 600D" is enought and really appreciated.

Re: Canon 600D / T3i with ML for Product shots?
« Reply #432 on: March 04, 2020, 03:47:26 PM »
Hey all. 

First of all thanks for the info on the thread.  It's already been helpful.  So, I have a Canon T3i and as of yet have not used Magic Lantern.  But I'm going to be taking some shots of some fairly complicated circuit boards here at work for our website, and I like the idea of the focus peaking feature on ML.  Here's my conundrum, however.  Given the (what seems to be quite rare) possibility of bricking my camera if I install this, do those of you who have used ML think it's going to make that much of a difference?  We do not upload large files to the web in order to maintain loading speed to maximum, but I'd like to get as much detail into the product pics as possible.  I just don't know if ML  is going to make that much of a difference.  Here's https://www.axcontrol.com/automation/ge-boards/mark-v-ds200/DS200DCFBG1BLC an example of one of our typical pages to get a feel for what I'm talking about.

Thanks.
M

With or without ML: You should work on white balance, light/exposure control (good read: Light - Science and Magic. I think 5th edition is the newest one.).
Maybe focus stacking with ML is an option, too.

Risks: What do you want to hear? Nothing I can say will change the risk you are taking.

After reading through the forum I think I have some idea of the risk, and I'm not overly concerned about the "might happens."  More looking for users to give their opinion of whether it would be valuable for my needs.  I may install it anyway for my non-work hobby time since we go hiking a lot and I think ML would give me some great options when taking photos in the Nantahala. 

Thanks for your feedback.

I've used Magic Lantern as long as I've had the T3i. For taking static product pics I don't think it will do much. Maybe the automatic self-timer with liveview or exposure bracketing control will be useful. You can zoom in to focus in live view, which is more precise than peaking.

For video it's a much bigger deal and really transforms what this camera can do for usability (white balance, audio levels, focus box, smooth exposure jumps with autoISO make the camera much more versatile as a video camera).
