Re: ML on EOS-M2

I'm just starting to shoot photos and videos on M2 with ML, trying, exploring the possibilities.
I have updated the version to 1.0.4. and installed ML. I shot for several days, then ML fell and now it does not start from this card. Writes logs, but does not start.

How should I reinstall it?
Should I reformat my card again and install ML for version 1.0.4?
Thank you in advance for your reply. I really want to shoot a video as soon as possible!))

It looks like I really need your help with my EOS M2 as well
1. I got camera with 1.0.2 firmware
2. Upgraded it 1.0.3
3. Installed ML (got link to it from Zeek’s youtube video – thanks for that video)
4. It worked OK, when I used camera with 18-55mm lens…just one thing went wrong – I have assigned “trash can” button for Depth-of-Field reviewing and found, the same button have to be used for ML, so I removed that DOF and could access ML menu (I pushed “trash can” button a few times and it froze camera all that times)
5. I bolted on 11-22mm lens and camera froze on a first frame…I played with 11-22mm until camera started to display corrupted image (some pink stripes at the bottom of screen)
6. Tried to reinstall ML a few times with no success – now it freezes on a first frame even with 18-55mm lens…formatted card in camera and PC
7. Removed ML and it works as it should
8. Tried a few attempts to upgrade with 1.0.4, but camera is not recognizing firmware on a card and freezing
I like this camera and really want to install ML on it.

solved
1.0.3 firmware + merged ML works great, no issues for a couple days
After installation "Restore ML defaults" at "Config options"

All you need to do is couple tap menu in live view for refresh register.
...not sure, how to do that - it wold be great if you explain it with more details

and there is a big surprise - Focus stacking is working :) reliability is not confirmed yet, but it works
a disappointing thing is the fact 11-22mm lens can not be used with ML  - it was main reason to buy this camera

Everything is explained in this video:

Tapping the menu button a few times is necessary when the Liveview is in frozen state to unfreeze, or even before shooting a clip to avoid footage error.

Zeek,
Thanks a lot for quick reply. I watched it again, but could not find any steps you are doing for "refresh register".

Is M2 affected by something like M's shutter bug? Didn't wrote A1ex a "minimal" autoexec.bin for M to determine if it's a timing problem or not?

Which card type are you using, AVS? Have you tried to run ML with other cards?

When the LV freezes, I'm pressing the Menu button a few times (until back to LV), this unfreezes the LV, then it works fine again (Liveview is not frozen).

Zeek, thank you
One more question - anybody using 11-22mm lens (or 15-45mm) with ML?

I've had the 15-45mm, quality is quite poor. I've seen good things from the 11-22mm though.. quality looks nice.

I already got 11-22mm and my question was, if it works with M2 + ML...mine is not working - it freezes camera when I put it on ...LED light is blinking red/yellow, when I push switch on

Maybe a link to a sample video could help. If you are in stills mode/photo icon on the M2, LV will freeze because you need to take off RAW Video, restart camera, then disable Crop Mode in ML Tab 3. For Video Mode, it should work fine, try enabling release without shutter in the custom functions menu, although it's probably not related, it could help with other lenses if already not enabled. Otherwise, it chould ne the shutter-bug issue which I have never encountered before.

spent whole evening trying different combinations
here is what I found:
camera works fine with lens, which was bolted on in process of ML installation (not sure about firmware)...when I try to mount different lens (camera is off), it freezes camera when I switch it on.
It is the same situation with 18-55mm and 11-22mm - camera works with one lens only
It looks like camera registers lens at installation and can't register another one later

I have found that turning on autofocus with RAW locks up the cameras.  as such, i can't use the stock lens since there is no real way to turn off autofocus.
