Sorry to take so long to reply. Yes, there is a special 7d version with qr lockout mode, no afaik you cannot just enable it on other cameras, yes, it would be possible to implement some password protection via ml but it'd be easy to circumvent because you'd just need to boot the camera w/o ml to disable it.

Tried to enable this on 600D/6D.. 6D I got locked down but no option to enter/customize password. Dialogs didn't come up.. I think there is a specific way to get them to show in the wikia.... unfortunately I couldn't get anything usable out of it.

If you block gui task then no buttons can be used, so should keep camera locked until you enter some kind of password.
