updated:

latest 2013/11/23 build for 600D.102 reaching 82 Celsius, movie recording stops automaticaly, I saw grain noise increasing in the sensor significantly...

I loved the display layout in this build, and all features and modules I tested are stable, but temperature is definetely a problem!!!


previous information before post update:
600D temperature report:
in the 2013/11/23 build for 600D.102 temperature goes to 70C in early seconds of recording
in the 2013/09/28 build for 600D.102 temperature keeps at 60C (maximum) after various minutes of recording

Someone commited a change that broke the 1100D build. I submitted a fix, but it never got merged, probably b/c a1ex was busy with other things, now it appears he's going to be MIA for a while, so it probably wont get fixed anytime soon.

Short Answer: Just use the one from 10/20, there's nothing new since then anyway.
Enable expo override and you can change Av in video mode on 1100D from the ML menu. I use this all the time.
Thanks, finally got around to trying to install it. I've updated my camera to 1.0.5 and tried installing ML. However when I get to the "Launch the Firmware Update process." part, the 1100D says "Memory card containing firmware is required to update".

I have tried a 10/21 build, a 10/20 build, and a 10/18 build, and I've tried putting canon firmware (1.0.5) into the SD card, but it still doesn't install ML.

Any help will be appreciated!

Nightlies were not designed to be first install. You need to download and install the alpha for the 1100D, then update to the nightly (by replacing the files on your card with the files in the zip for the nightly). The alpha has the .fir file that sets the bootflag in the camera.

Thanks, ML is working great. Had to use the Sep 17 version b/c of a fonts.dat problem but otherwise it works!

EDIT: If anyone is trying to install a ML nightly build and wondering what I did for my 1100D/T3:
  • Make sure Canon firmware is 1.0.5
  • Put alpha build (in my case here where it says "RC3:") into formatted SD card. Put into camera and installed.
  • Deleted the "ML" folder and "autoexec.bin" file from SD card.
  • Put nightly build (in my case I used the Sep 17 one) into SD card. Put into camera and installed it.
  • Done

600D Overheat issues:

Filmed the LPGA Charity Tournament today with 3 600d's.  I was running an older nightly build (6-1) on two cameras, while my second operator was running an Oct-25 build. 

The only camera to overheat and shutdown 6 times over the course of 9 holes (3 hrs) was my second operator's with the 10-25 build.

Originally I had thought this was a temp reporting error, but obviously it is not.  The camera IS getting hot.

The other two cameras with the older build had no issues what so ever and were used in the exact same environment and temps.

I advise anyone running nightlies since the new memory and design layout revert back to an older build, or deal with overheat issues.

I have a 6D and downloaded the nightly.  But, there's no .fir so I cannot set the bootflag.  Not surprisingly, the 6D will not update the firmware to install ML.  How can I get around this?  Can I use another .fir file (from another model) to use as a dummy to set the boot flag?

Thanks,
Carl...

I believe you need to download and install the alpha first... should be a thread about it or the dev kit on the forum

Is there a problem with the nightly builds link? There is nothing there!

Yes, probably, Magic Lantern Team is going to work with Nikon Cameras. This is sad...

How about 2 pages back (in the same thread) ?

Hey.
Quick display question that googling and searching isn't solving.  In the nightly build the shooting GUI isn't displaying the modified ISO value when using ML digital ISO correction.   So if I'm at analouge ISO 400 and have -0.3EV ML digital ISO it still displays as 400.  I may have missed a setting buried somewhere?


VVVVVV Cheers mate!

Removed support for 50D, 6D and 1100D because these ports were not maintained for months and became outdated. EOS M support was already removed a while ago. I've also cleaned up the feature table, it now only shows the supported cameras.

Been running the august 21 RAW build from lourenco for a while and just gave a try to magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2013Dec11.5D3113 as well as the "official" mk3alpha3 a try as I was trying to figure out how to use h264.ini (and just to see what you guys are up to atm)

A few (perhaps obvious) questions/Observations:
magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2013Dec11.5D3113: Looks and feels awesome! Can't get RAW video recording to work - bug or user fail?
Daybreak broke me loose and brought me back...

with newer builds my xmp's are not being read by Camera Raw anymore, is this a bug or something wrong on my end?

Wait... I haven't downloaded a nihtly build since april...

Is there no more unified builds? I already had to have separate cards for the EOS M when I wanted to use ML on it, but now I need separate cards for the 60D AND T2i (550D)? Is there a way to download a unified ML nightly build that will work on both 550D and 60D as it's always been?

Well, the best practices page recommend separate cards anyway.

The current approach (fat binary) does not scale to the number of cameras that ML can run on; I have a portable loader in mind, but it's pretty hard to do, and it has a low priority. Maybe when the raw madness will settle, we might be able to do another unified release, but right now I can't promise anything.

Hey no worries, I found the nified releases up til Sep 20 here: http://nanomad.magiclantern.fm/jenkins/

I think it fixed the issues I had with the last nightly I was running (tweaking audio levels while recording). And it has pretty new menus. I can wait for a nicer unified later on.

I wish I could just separate cards, and I may do that once I go buy some more, but with 3 16GB's and 5 32GB's all haning out together in my card holder while I'm running around checking up on 3 cameras during a wedding ceremony, well it gets hard rnough just making sure I out the non-ML cards in the EOS M lol. Readin this I realize I need to double, if not triple, my cards :(

Hey guys!

First timer with ML over here. I'm sure this has been asked to death already, but I wasn't able to find conclusive answers, thought maybe someone could help me.

I have a Canon 60D, running latest firmware version, I believe 1.1.1. I have been able to get stable 2.3 working just fine. My question is, how do I go about flashing the nightly? I have a few ideas on how I could do it, but I definitely don't want to chance it with my baby. So, would someone mind point forming instructions for me? Thank you!

Delete ML directory from the card. Extract ML directory and autoexec.bin from nightly and copy them onto the card root.

Hey! Thanks so much for your reply!

Do I need to run the firmware update process after replacing?

Can I overwrite? Or do I need to actually delete the ML and autoexe.bin folder and file?


Thanks again!

I have a few ideas on how I could do it, but I definitely don't want to chance it with my baby. So, would someone mind point forming instructions for me? Thank you!

I think I'm having exactly the same misunderstanding as you.  I've tried repeatedly to install the nightly WITHOUT first loading the stable or an Alpha for my 60D - I think you DO need to load a stable or Alpha and THEN load the nightly - there's some great scripts written by Ben at http://learningsurfphotography.com/how-to-gain-full-control-with-a-basic-water-housing/ for my water housing - but it needs the nightly installed for the scripts to run - as far as this newbie understands it anyway.

I have stable 2.3 installed - very easy - and I'll now try the suggestions above by Walter Schulz to get the nightly loaded to run Ben's scripts.

Total newbie here - looking for light in the darkness.......

Edit: ummmmm no I removed all of stable 2.3 from my card and loaded following nightly for 60D:

    Built on: 2013-12-21 10:15:09 +1100
    Changeset: dbab847a9326b49a85339e02fc09555462bec9b5

and then tried to update in camera and camera says: "memory card containing firmware is required to update" so didn't work for me.

I'll keep digging away.

Further edit.

So I worked it out - yep = need to run the stable on the card - then remove all from card and replace with the nightly and then all done and works - BUT apparently the latest nightly DOES NOT support Pico C scripts - so even though I sorted getting the latest nightly build up and working with no issues - no amount of tinkering would get the scripts to run - effectively the scripts create a protocol where depressing the live view button brings up the quick menu allowing the user to run the camera in manual mode and adjust shutter, aperture, ISO etc via the top dial - very helpful with a water housing with limited functionality - all credit to Ben of www.http://learningsurfphotography.com.

I eventually received help from Ben who sent me a link to an old nightly build that still allowed the Pico C scripts to run - so after much trial and error and reading forums (and Ben's generous help) all resolved.

ML is amazing software - now to work out how to put it to work!
