5D Mark III 1.3.6 to 1.2.3 install question
« on: April 20, 2020, 05:36:09 AM »
I found this on the ML site:  https://builds.magiclantern.fm/5D3-123.html

Will Method B under the "Installation" section actually downgrade me from 1.3.6 to 1.2.3?  Is this a viable workaround?
Is it risky, could I brick my camera?

Any help/advice appreciated!  Thank you guys

Phil

There was a recent way to do this on the forums.

Top of page -> Downloads -> Downloads (drop down menu) -> Experimentents -> 4k builds
After installation load raw module (mlv_lite or mlv_rec) and restart. Then configure raw options in movie menu. If you get status bar message "xxxx resolution not possible in current video mode (max 1920)" you have to press magnify/loupe button to enter crop mode.

So, do I uninstall current magic lantern and replace with the 4k experimental build from the ground up?

regards
