FPS Override settings - Question - / Canon Menue Flickering
« on: December 08, 2012, 06:36:15 PM »
Hello,

1. In the future i wanna do a tutorial for german users and have questions about FPS Override. Is there anybody who can explain in an easy way -step by step-, what each setting is good for ? ( f. e. :Timer A , Timer B , High Jello, and how can i do good slit scan movies....????)




2. Another thing is a little problem:

If i push "set", "play", or "delete" in ML Movie Mode this Canon Menue flashes shortly:



Is this a bug, or a mistake in a hidden setting ?

It's a trick to make the scroll wheel work. It's not nice but it works

The main wheel, as in the wheel by the shutter release that is used to change settings. This is a workaround to enable using the wheel in the ML menu, as the camera does not detect wheel movements in every mode. By temporarily opening up the Pict. Style menu, it allows the use of the wheel. It looks like the ML GUI is not aggressively killing the Canon overlays. Are you using ver. 2.3?

As far as FPS override, it is well documented.

Also any translation efforts to help provide a Deutsch userguide would be greatly appreciated!

Yes, i'm using ML Vers. 2.3 (and it's great !)

I know this documentation well and i read a lot of other tutorials but there are still some features (often only finetunings but necessary for a GOOD translatation ) i don't understand. Especially Timer A and Timer B. What effects changing the values ? Shutter is fixed in FPS Overriding while recording, isn't it ? And what means "Main clock" in Mhz ?
