In the VGA mode it's possible to fill the screen, but it would look choppy (like anamorphic preview). I'm not sure if it's worth the effort.

I was also able to scale the image vertically via DIGIC. It won't improve the resolution (it will just double the pixels). This can be more promising. It's still only useful for 720 mode, and my monitor already does this scaling, so I didn't see any point to implement it.

I installed the latest build (14/02) and tested some things. Everything worked at first sight. And I have to give a thumbs up for the new menu style. I really like it.

Tomorrow I have a corporate shoot. And like alwyas I'm going to do it on a nightly :p

I'll keep you guys updated!

UPDATE: No bugs encountered :-) .. A whole day of shooting on the 14/2 build. Camera also shutted down perfectly each time. No crashes, no nothing. The junkie menu is really handy!

Good job development!!

In case of: On 550d the User Picture style is NOT working  Neither in preview nor in recording IN THE MOVIE MODE.

It works on the photo mode.

Did you change it while in movie mode?

I ve tried to change but nothing appear on the screen and nothing on the receorded file.

The Picture style preset show ok in the movie mode but no the 3 USER style.
In the M photo mode (where all is running ok)

But i've just saw that when i turn my 550d on it say "Script dir missing" must be the source of problem..



BUG: DotTune AFMA does not work on 50D:

DotTune AFMA, any test range = just 3x blinks INFO page and then
"Press INFO and try again."  shows.

My setup:
Canon EOS 50D + 50mm/1,8 II ( or 17 55 /2,8 tamron ),
FW 1.09 + ML v2.3.NEXT.2013Feb25



I do not use Info screen.
Just attempt to use DotTune AFMA will turn it ON...

EDIT: I redial three choices in INFO button setup, went back to Normal,
and now AFMA works!!! Thanks for guiding me to right direction :-)

Thanks Alex, It works now!

So no prob with the 2.3 next on movie style...

( btw : even it is on the canon menu fault the wiki could explain the way to re enter the picture style in movie mode cause it is somewhat hidden and tricky)

Best and long life to ML!


How Do I enable junkie mode, i see it listed in info menu, but no change when selected.    5D2 3/1/2013 Build

Hi everybody, i have a 5d mk2 and a 5dmk3 and a 7D. I love ML 8) and its working nice and good as the alphas on the 7D and the 5Dmk3. Now I would love to check the nightly builds on the Mk3 and 7D but I can not get it to boot from the autoexec.bin  :-[ :( . When I start the camera with  a bootable CF ( tried al different bootcodes from the EOS-Card utility) the camera stays dead. Only way of using ML is via fir into the Alpha... :o

I tried the bootflag.fir as well but there seems to be something either I am missing or are the nightly builds not build for the 5DMk3 and 7 D ?

I would like to have fps override and the automatic HDR-Shooting mode from the 5Dmk2 as well as playing more with the new pico...

And the Mk2 is nearly sold and already reboxed.... :o ;)

Thanks Matthias von Mutius, I am with ML since the early days with Trammel...


Hi Alex,

I shoot some photos with ML autoISO ON
(eos 50d + 430exII)  and normally (without ML) I would had ISO400,
but with ML it is ISO100 - which is cool;)

Is it however possible to set a new upper ISO limit?
Canon autoISO goes only to 1600, so I would like to have a chance to raise it to ML maximum ISO
(2000, 2500, 3200... )

bug possibly:
Back to my shooting - I took 8 photos in a row,
7 is 50mm, 1/250s, f/5,6, flash on, EV+1/3, ISO100
but 1 is unexpectedly 50mm, 1/250s, flash on, f/5,6, EV+1/3, ISO1600 ?


What happened with nightly builds? I see it didn't updated since 03-19.

Can it print the error in some log file if it fails? I did a fresh clone and compiles fine here...


I'll look at the script but it compiled fine right now...dunno what went wrong

Is it possibly to use nightly builds for 5D3? I use latest one on 5D2 and like AMFA tune a lot, but it was better to adjust lenses on my new 5D3 ...


Not yet, but there's an unofficial build in the 5D3 thread, you can try that.


can you give me a link to that thread?

or is it this thread: plus I need to change autoexec from nightly build? I asking, because in nighlty builds there is no mentioned 5D3 ;]
