wow, that's a nice fix :)  Shame BMD never could in earlier cameras. lol although to be fair, there are other cinema cameras plagued with it.

Hey all, I'm a relatively new user. Last time I had ML was on a 550d 6 years ago, and I must say, the M is really surprising me thanks to the hard work that's one into it. Thank you all so much!

I do have just one question though, is it possible to adjust aperture with the scroll wheel? At the moment, when I turn it, I'm changing the shutter speed, but ideally, I'd like to set that on one speed and leave it there forever (1/50) So the wheel could be put to better use on the aperture, which has more of a meaningful manipulation on your footage.

Hopefully I'm just missing the setting, but if not, Danne, is that something that could be added?

Yay... black sun behaviour is way better now. But something minor thing still happens. No problem to get it invisible, but anyway intersting: what happens here?! When lowering highlights I get a "pink sun" now. Lowering RAW White Level does not really help here - the pink is a little different from the "Pink highlights". (Just don't lower highlights and the pink sun is away again.) Here, a lamp, you see the little pink dot.

Haha, always the pink.
Well maybe cmos 4 can be tweaked to fix even this?

Been using the mcm rewire mode but getting a ton of aliasing. I was told to use an anamorphic mode instead and I'm blow away. I ran the 2:39:1 script to help me select the settings and footage came out great.

Do you know what resolution / settings I can change to achieve footage like this though? (black bars on side rather than top and bottom)

That is my footage, missed your question on yt.. It is shot in 1.66:1, great aspect ratio imo..

Please do a recording of what you do. Description is not easy to understand.

Hi, I can't insert an image, only the upper half records me and the lower half is distorted and blinking.

Look. Looking in my crystal ball. Do following:
1 - set RAW video to 14bit-lossless
2 - in Crop mode sub menu set 10bit.

you can do it on your video editor, after exporting the video with MLVAPP load it into your video editor and then decrease the width of the video and the black bars will show up, tweak the width value to your liking.

How can I change aperture without going into the ML menus? The scroll wheel defaults to shutter speed, which I don't want to change. (my up and right buttons don't work which is annoying and probably the way to switch modes - if it is, can I reprogram which button can change aperture?)

Sorry for prolonging the off topic... the way i described offers more "room" to play with the width of the black bars.

I just think it is (far) better to decide beforehand in what aspect ratio you will be filming. And not alter the image afterwards to make it more or less “cinematic”.

Any way to fix the rolling shutter in 3k mode. Even if I set the resolution to 2500 x 1080 in 3k the rolling shutter is twice as bad as in 2.5k mode. would like to use 2.7k

*Press the "info" button until the EOS M Dashboard Appears. Adjust the F-Stop from there on the right side of the Shutter Speed.

Or just push right button once and you're in f-stop mode.

This is what happens when you mess around with vintage lenses for "too long" :P
The latest builds are working nicely by the way on the M and can't believe how far this camera has come compared to the other ML Cameras out there. Haven't encountered any issues yet on the latest build, though will keep an eye out. Thanks a lot :)

Thanks Danne, but as I noted, my up and right buttons aren't working. I guess I'll stick with the INFO route, at the expense of losing multiple LV presets.

Push right then use scroll wheel. Works here.
