Which is your highest resolution/data rate for continuous recording with MLV_RAW?

Sorry for the late response. Well, that would be 1280x582 (aspect ratio 2.20:1)

Walter Schulz

Just about 31 MByte/s. Some 20 percent missing ...
Two tests:
1) Don't use FPS override and twist resolution to find out highest data rate for continuous recording without.
2) Use settings you listed above with an older build. One year old would be fine. Try to twist data rate above 31.

I cannot cross test with my 650D right this week.


Hello, is there any way to set sound monitoring to my 700D?
Suddenly, there are some assemblies of enthusiasts ..

I know that the support for 700D sound monitoring does not work on ML, but there are probably those who changed the source and there are test versions.



i hope, this is the right forum.

I'm currently use ML with Canon 700d (firmware 1.1.5) and the latest nightly build.
I've only tested the intervalometer and it worked fine with the canon 50mm 1.8 und 18-55mm STM lenses.
Yesterday i tried it with the Tamron AF SP 70-300mm 4-5.6 Di VC USD and the cam crashed.
Camera was on, Liveview active und i've only zoomed in -> Picture in LiveView freezed and there were no functions anymore although the cam was working  even if i tried to turn the camera of and on.
The only thing which helped was to remove the battery.

Sorry for my bad english :)

Is your problem reproducable?

The topic specifically for the 1.1.5 firmware is this one:

Could you please try reproducing the issue on firmware 1.1.4 and report back? You can find the Canon firmwares here:


Hi guys,
I'm pretty new to magic lanter and canon cameras. I succesfully installed on my Canon 700d and I enjoy a lot of magic lantern features.
I find pretty useful this shortcuts:

1- av + gear -> chage aperture
2- wb + gear -> change shutter speed

however I cannot find how to set the ISO. I also tried the arrow set pref option but I cannot use it (I read on this thread to active it by using the face sensor above the viewfinder but I'm not sure how to do it)

can someone please help me?
thanks a lot

Hi, after that I found how activate arrows keys (be sure to enable lcd auto off) I notice that my values indicators are always white and not green in certain conditions (my 180 degree rules is perfect but my shutter speed is not green)
how to achieve that?

Using lossless compression I was able to record around 300 frames of 1716x964 @ 25 fps.

The way you light your scene has a large impact in the compression rate of the codec. A dark frame reaches a way higher compression rate then an overexposed scene.

I don't want to share a build, because I get warnings saying I might have encountered the null pointer bug.

I get warnings saying I might have encountered the null pointer bug.

May I take a look at your ROM? That's on the current crop_rec_4k codebase, right?

(it's probably a false warning, but let's check it first)


That's correct, the crop_rec_4k codebase.

You have the ROM in your PM.


Been testing the crop_rec_4k code on the 700d and I must say, I'm impressed. The card speed of the camera is a little slow for continuous recording at higher resolutions, but at least it's a lot better then uncompressed recording.

I don't know why I recieved the null pointer bug warning, but when running the test script on a 600D I received the same error message.

To get the crop_rec_4k branch compiled I copied some define's from the 5D3, which appear to work, but can probably be optimized. These values were:

Can I get some hints where to look for the correct values?


Hm, this would probably work on the eosm too? Not a lot of time on my hands here but exactly where and what was changed here?


ProcessTwoInTwoOutLosslessPath is an important part to get lossless 14bit working.

I had a quick look at the 600D, but haven't find the setargs and the resources part yet.


Maybe you could share sources for 700D build changes?


You can find the ProcessTwoInTwoOutJpegPath for the 700D here.

Since I'm unsure about the values above, I won't share a full build.


for all people having high temperature reported (over 50 celsius):

I recently bought a battery grip and the temperature decrease incredibly and nvere touch the yellow warning. With an outside temperature of 35° the camere touch just rarely the 40° also using overlays and autofocus

Need to verify this with another 700D user -- turn on selftest module and try running the Stubs API test. Is it able to complete the test and save a log?

I was trying to run it on the 700D.115 update like I did several months ago but it kept getting stuck. Downgraded to 114 with the same results.


Hi dfort, tell me where I can find your build and I'll test (I need a build cause I lost everything on my PC. Faulty disk :( )


@eNnvi - no need for any special build, the selftest module is included in the unified branch. The 1.1.5 pull request was merged recently so we should all update our Canon firmware in order to work with the latest nightly build.
