Any chance anyone can tell us where we can find the pre alpha build or is it not yet released?

I'm also curious to see how well it'll perform with a Sandisk 32gb extreme pro (90 MB/s) ;)

Not publicly released, nikfreak sent it around to a few people, maybe they can share with you (I personally don't have it).

Probably the same as a 50MB/s card  :P

I am aware of that -- just thought I'd ask since it doesn't hurt to try. Anyone care to share?

I also believe your 50 MB/s card will work just as well... ;)

The pre alpha build is very buggy, I had a few crashes while I was filming the video.

I think the idea is to keep it on the down low till bugs are exterminated or people will complain.

I understand that and I'm one of the few that enjoys trouble-shooting to help narrow down the bugs.

I've been using a sandisk extreme pro 32gb and I'm getting the same results with my 50mb/s cards: about 14 seconds of raw at 1856x790.

Most of the pre-alpha discussion has been about video.  How's the rest of the ML functionality (intervalometer, focus assist, etc)?

No AI, all manual (EDIT: I used manual but AI does work) :)

did you try any lower resolution?

I tried 720p, seemed to be continuous.

what about clean hdmi?

I haven't tried it sorry! :(

As well they should. People will try it and complain when they soft brick their bodies. Best keep it under till alpha.

On the T4i the pre-alpha was rock solid for me, for what I was using it for, but I'm asking a lot more from the 70D as are most. Let's just back up our devs while they do what they can to bring ML to life for the 70D.

Ok enough for now! Please don't apply for early testing. I will keep you updated these days. The ratio of guys owning the "old fw revision" has been ~40%.
I'm too late. Mine was bought on Dec. 2013, would've qualified on the old fw revision.

Very good work nikfreak. I'll keep a close tab on this.

I'm pleased to announce that my Dec14 70D is now ML supercharged :)

Are there something specific feature that would be useful to be tested at first?
I have a little spare time today at 17.00 UTC

IRC chat also possible

Sorry if this sounds like a newbie question, but just so I'm clear, is the reason that the 70D won't be able to record RAW video at 1080p because the SD controller can only write at around 40 mb/s and RAW requires faster writing speeds?

Yes. ML RAW/MLV writes uncompressed data.
Write rate (Byte/s) = Vertical pixel/resolution * horizontal pixel/resolution * 14 * frame rate / 8

For 720p@24:
1280 x 720 x 14 x 24 / 8 = 38707200
about 37 MByte/s (24 is not 24 ...)

For 1080p@24:
1920 x 1080 x 14 x 24 /8 = 87091200
about 83 MByte/s

Actually you can record 1080p but only for very few frames.
