lol... well, you can at least get it to do raw mv1080 and true 24fps stable continuous. With the merged build at least.
I know, It´s mainly my branch in there. Well, dfort and of course a1ex started it out and layed out the ground work. mv1080p is working because delimed to default raw buffer. True 24fps, what does it even mean. Anyway. You can tweak and modify anything on the eosm.

It just means actual 24 frames per second, instead of 23.976 (23.98) broadcast framerate. Mostly used in movies and cinema DCP packages. Yeah, I might replace two of my M2s with M models just to have more options on more cameras.

Hi  I am new to this  - I just got a sandisk extreme pro 256GB SD card and when I benchmark it in ML it says it will write/read at around 35 Mb/sec. Is this why my EOS M won't record RAW video? Is there a better card I should be getting or is it my settings (oh my, so many settings!)?

Hi Danne,
I'm starting to test ML, a new world for me.
There is a changelog for your distro of ML?
Tnx
Giovanni

I did some tests 2 days ago, mcm 1080 14 bit (except for the shot of the big fountain and the one of the white goose), graded in davinci and exported to 4k so youtube doesn't ruin the quality  I know it's not the best, but it's my first try outside home

I've been reading and attempting to understand as much as possible about the ML world - as it relates to the EOS M.  So far this is what I’ve been able to pick up.

The EOS M seems to be one of the better supported cameras.  While the ML site shows the latest build is back from 2018 that doesn’t tell the whole story.  Because...

What I haven’t figured out yet?
  • I’m a little unsure why Danne has decided to stick with 2.0.2?
    Are there drawbacks to running either 2.0.2 or 2.0.3.
    Are Danne’s builds the best to be running?  It seems likely they work better than the 2018 builds on the ML site, but it’s worth asking.
    While we’re at it, why are the last builds on the main site from 2018?

Unlike most people running ML, my main objective is to use the EOS M as a webcam.  I intend to have it going out via hdmi into a capture card.
I’ve figured out I can turn overlays off by going to the “Display tab/screen” menu and enabling "Clean Overlays". 
BUT what I’m unsure of is…
Will this work for long sessions?  Will I be overheating or some other way killing the camera if I’ve got it running for a two hour VC?
How do I keep the camera turned on?  It seems to want to automatically turn off after a set period of time.
What’s the best/most stable firmware for my unique use case?

Any help or thoughts appreciated, and hopefully this is a useful post for newbs like me and can avoid some unnecessary repetitive posts asking the same questions.

See this message /forum/index.php?topic=9741.msg224844#msg224844 on the page 157.
I have tested and everything seems to crash. Idk if it's my memory card's (Transcend SDHC I 400x 32GB) fault or because of unstable firmware?

It leads to a specific post by dfort which links to his repository. And there you will find

Hello, I'm fairly new to the forum but I've been using Danne's build for EOSM and I've been having a lot of fun. However I've recently run into some issues (big and small) and am wondering if anyone on the forum can help.

I couldn't get the cam to record and shoot with a EFM to c mount adapter in. I had to make use of the recording delay function in the video tab, this probably has an easy fix i can't find but it was annoying to work around and was wondering what setting i need to change in ML or in camera to get that to work. I was also having issues with the SD overclock. I don't know what causes but eventually the card will refuse to record at higher bitrates, this will happen even while recording. I'll have continuous recording, everything is stable, but suddenly the write speed tanks the buffer fills up and recording stops. After that the card stays at low write Speed, I've been using a legit SanDisk Extreme pro 90MB/s 64GB and a Lexar Pro 1000x 128GB. The write speed tanking happens seemingly at random, and after that I need to clear the frame buffers, and dump the ROM, and occasionally the cards speed come back, only to invariably return to slowpoke mode. Neither of these are the big issue tho.

https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=16262.0 I ran into this problem. Flashing green LED and no boot. Camera would only boot without an SD. Regardless of what is on an SD, any SD card in Camera will make it not boot and perpetually flash the LED. I managed to save my camera by getting the camera to boot with the battery door open (i had to push in a little pin inside the battery compartment) and pushing in the SD card right after turning the camera on. This somehow avoided the flashing LED AND read the card. I used this to reinstall firmware 2.0.2 and wipe all settings and format the card again. I thought nothing of this and reinstalled ML i still had to deal with the funky SD write behaviour but everything seemed good, however after a few days it started doing the same hanging thing again, and I had to repeat the process. I am more than willing to run tests if any of the devs need some research done here as no one should have to deal with this bricked/hanging camera crap.

EDIT: So it appears that this LED hanging behaviour occurs now even when ML hasnt been installed, have to do the card thign just to get the cam to acknowledge the card. Wondering what it could be.

Not taking shots with adapter mounted:
C.Fn IV 7: Release shutter w/o lens. Instruction manual page 287.

Lexar Pro 1000x is an UHS-II card. This card will run in UHS-I compatibility mode and ATM nobody has a clue if SD_UHS.mo is compatible with this - or any - UHS-II card. I can only recommend not to use it ATM.

@all: Anybody else having such "drop-out" problems with Extreme Pro?

Lockups: Most likely you took a card which was prepared for ML (= bootable) and wiped autoexec.bin. Cam will lockup and FAQ/Install Guide will tell you not to delete autoexec.bin!

Anyone know how to disable H264 MOV files from splitting up into 4GB files? It doesn't do it on the M2 but I can't seem to get the M to keep it in one big file. Its very important for my ongoing project because I will have way too many files between 4 cameras. Thanks

Are you sure M2 doesn't use file chunking? Because it would be the only Digic 5 cam doing so.
Digic 4 code stops if record size reaches 4 GB.
The Digic 5 cams I know will always do file chunking. Regardless if card has Exfat file system or not.

Thanks Walter, ordered a new SD extreme Pro 90MB to test on! Is there a relevant post/topic on remedying my hanging issue? Is it merely go back, install ML and ensure the ML contents do not get tampered with and the card stays constantly in cam?

I don't know man. I just know I can record one big H264 file on the M2 with ML, but I can't seem to do it on the M. I have recorded video on the M2 a few times now and let it go until the SD Card ran out and it was one big file for H264. Both cameras I used a card with exFat.

Use the black ones. 95mb or 170mb.

Done and done. Thanks for the help and the hard work you put into the build! I’ll report back any issues

Could you clarify what “drop-out” means to be exact?

Indeed, both black 95MBs & 170MBs have been remarkable thus far @Kgncom!

I don't think there is a difference other than the label.
