Added a small table last night:

http://nanomad.magiclantern.fm/nightly/features.html

It's autogenerated, and it may not be 100% right (especially the modules part).

Who's going to help polishing it?

Canon T4i-650D
Thanks ML, Coming from the T1i ( 2.3 ), I can see great improvements on this new release, despite is a nightly build seems very stable.

3 BUGS : 1- White balance : After setting ML Kelvin balance, If I want to return to a predefined or custom white balance by pressing quick menu , can not be done with the buttons only with touch screen.
2- Menu ML shows exposure meter all the time
3- When reviewing photos touch screen doesn't work when scaling down

650D-700D

Canon 5D2.

Late night release from 31302bbc6461.zip (Aug 16).

I used Advanced Bracketing. If camera is set to Av (this is the mode I checked) steps greater than 2 EV are ignored.

-2, -2.5, -3, -3.5, -4, -4.5 and -5 result a -2 EV compensation.   :-(
Manual seemed to work OK. Steps less than 2 worked OK in Av mode.

I am new to this forum (although  I was a contributor 1.5 year ago).

I am not sure if this is the correct thread as this is not exactly a "normal" nightly build (it contains the DUAL_ISO and other modules) so apologies in advance.
EDIT: In the meantime I loaded nightly build Aug 21 and I verified that it has the same bug.

Advanced bracketing should be used in M only.

Why?

ML 2.3 bracketing works fine in ALL modes! It's a bug.

No, bracketing can't be trusted outside M since canon is constantly making exposure decisions for you

ML 2.3 works FINE on that matter. It is the increase of maximum step from +- 2 EV to +- 5EV  which made it really useful (in addition to the number of frames of course). ML 2.3 bracketing was very trustworthy.

Alright. I don't have a camera supported by 2.3 though. You should try to identify a nightly build that doesn't have this issue.

Suggestion: start from the oldest one and figure out the first broken one

Thanks for your time. I will do a binary search (OK download) and I think I will reduce the number of download/tests to 9 or 10.

I will do it this weekend. Thanks again.

hello,

situation is as follows: the different behavior (EV step higher than 2 being set to 2) appears with the first nightly build version immediately after ML2.3

A parenthesis:

Actually this and some later nightly builds had another issue regarding Advanced Bracketing:
They ignored a possible exposure compensation set by a camera.
For example if camera was set to -1 an additional compensation say -2 set it to -2 and not to -3.

But this is solved in later nightly builds (including the latest).

End of parenthesis:

So can we get a maximum of 5 stops  for Av mode in some next nightly build?

Thanks in advance.

Lol just was I was hoping it wouldn't happen. I'll try to build a couple of older binaries for you to test

Is there a way to turn off the audio meter displays in the new nightly builds or has that been removed?

I saw that the sl1 is supported by nightlys. Where would I find the .fir for the SL1/100d?

@nanomad: Any chance of changing the +-2 EV to +- 5 EV setting in Av Mode in Advanced Bracketing in releases following Aug 29.Next or later ?

That's a Canon limitation, nothing to do with ML.

At ML2.3 stable (5D2) it works fine. It was the feature I wanted (and used) most! (2nd being more than 3 shots bracketing)

Do you have a 5D2? You can test it!  Load ML2.3 Mode Dial set to Av, Activate HDR bracketing and set 2 shots at 5EV step.

I understand you are full with tasks.  I can load ML2.3 to my 5D2 to night (when I go home) and do the same.

I will take 2 pictures and I can send them to you to check EXIF info.

Would that be enough?

Yep, tried, it was a bug (safeguards were not working, now they work).

I wouldn't, just flip to M mode.
