5DIII: ML OFF means stand by?
« on: January 02, 2014, 01:56:24 PM »
Hi,
yesterday I did my first trials with ML on my new 5D3. To be sure, that my photos and videos will be fine, I started the camera while pressing the SET button. In top of the display a text "ML OFF" was shown. Okay, looked like original Canon Firmware is now active.

After switching to movie mode and starting recording the camera crashed with some messages clearly coming from ML. I thought ML is off. Why can the camera crash with ML errors if original firmware is running? What I have to do if I simply want the original behavior of the 5DIII?

I used ML from aug 2013 with firmware 1.1.3 installed. No further updates made.
Thanks in advance
Dirk

You can use an SD card that has not been used on ML or you can format the SD card ON CARD READER to clear the cards bootdisk.

What happens if I simply remove the SD card? Actually I have only one (old) SD card, but many CF cards.

Camera will work as normal as long as there are no ML files or bootflag set on the CF card.

Of course on this SD card the bootflag is set and ML files are saved there. This is the card I prepared for using ML.
But if I simply remove it, what will happen, if the trial to load ML will fail because of no SD card?

Just as I said above... camera will work as normal a la no ML.

Pull it out and try for yourself.
