EOS-M / Re: EOS M Accessory question

Found something really cool to maybe create a grip, called Sugru.
Anybody used this before? How strong is it?

You made me spend almost two hours dreaming possibilities to use this wonderful material to do some DIY projects. Thanks for letting us know about the existence of this thing.

Just wonder if one could make use of it to design some sort of weather seal on lenses, camera and battery grip etc etc.

Shot last week with EOS M and 18 55 kit lens @ 55mm F.10 in the middle of the day at Old San Juan El Morro Fort. Only a few feet away from this guy.

There are hundreds of different brands/models  of manual 50mm prime lens available for M. Search the vintage arsenal and you will find some gems. All you need is an adapter.

Lenses / Re: Exorbitant repair costs, Canon Australia

If repair costs that much in your country, sell it online as parts (with full disclosure) and buy a white box same item. (from kit set) I assume that you can sell it for $350 and you only pay up to $300-$350 for a new/like new lens.
There are a lot of DIYers who will buy to repair it if the problem is diagnosed. The part costs $20 to $60 depending on sources.

Software & Accessories / Re: Benro heads

Benro ball heads B1 B2 B3 are priced at around $95, $130 and $150 respectively on the Ebay. I am looking to find one used B2 or B3 for less but cant never find one. I have a B1 for 3 years now and find it very sturdy for loading a 7D with 24 105 and it is reasonably good for it's price.
If you find one that needs to be tightened with a wrench, then it is certainly not a Benro.

I bought this rubber mask for some degree of protection but mainly  to avoid scratching. It seals some of the buttons so I assume that it will help to keep some moisture/water out.

thanks..guess will have to go with ML.  The install was easy enough to follow...the uninstall was in German...not so sure of the translation....thanks..

Tor remove the boot flag, just repeat to install the ML firmware and follow the instruction : do not restart the camera.
Wait for 30 secs and the boot flag will be removed. Then format the SD card in the camera and there will be no traces of ML any more.

but the ML software becomes part of the camera's? I would prefer a stand alone type of shutter count, for the M.  So far has been a dead end.  There has to be something out

Not really, when you remove the SD card, the ML is gone. If you want to complete remove (the boot flag) it's very simple.

Installation guide :

Magic Lantern will show the Shutter Count of EOS M in the debug section of the menu.

It shows the number of pics taken and number of liveview actuations.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Unreliable AF on 7D with FW 2.0.3?

Anybody tried this method : Canon 7D Missed Focus Hard Reset Fix

Just curious to know why Magic Lantern download link for 5D3 nightly builds has a choice of v.113 and v.123.

If one doesn't want to upgrade firmware to 123, will the latest 113 version ML have the same old problem of permanent bootflag etc.
