  1. I'm so sorry you feel offended by my previous post. As you admit yourself not having any geek knowledge to determine the exact usage a NVMe drive; I was just trying to clarify the post you where sharing. It was, in no way, an attack to the filmmakers community that knows shit about technical stuff but still keep re-posting absurdities. My only goal is to make this great forum a better place with my real life experience (and love.) I always had a commitment to support the filmmaker community. I can only bow to your message and ask you for ultimate forgiveness. please, please.
  2. You are taking sentence out of the context. Yes, a drive is not removable easily from the enclosure and, no you may not swap drive on the fly. It's like saying SSD are not removable media. Still, they are used everyday as removable media cause the interface is something else that what is inside the enclosure. But this system is an enclosure for NVMe drive that will put the heat away from the card reader , allowing cheaper and very large drive capacity. The heat generated by the card can be way easier dissipated than a CFExpress card. I actually have such enclosure for another project,
  3. Great finding, I was looking for such without success few weeks back. I guess t's about market demand versus offer! I did similar test on my DJI Inspire 2 and I did not lost any data writing raw 5K. I'ts also a money saver as you only buying the drive and not the card. This is one way to solve 2 issues at once. USD 150 if you found them online in China. https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r. The price will be falling down as soon as competition kicks in.
  4. Like external recorder on top of camera-hand held do not exist? We are not living in the same planet. More people try to explain canon choice, less it makes sense. All Canon explanations was about electronics that can't hold warm temperature since day one. I's call "overheating" on all their documentation for a rason. But as this do not work with the external no limit recording aspect; there is now a new idea floating around about your skin getting burn, but only for internal recording not external cause the camera is on tripod?! And that's why removing the timer is so danger
  5. That explanation do not make sense. When using an external recorder; the camera is also getting super hot and Canon have never limit recording when you do not have a card inside. Without any hack, you can record forever. So any exercise to explain that electronic overheat and need an hour to cool down or that people get burned and other fantasy do not stand when you start talking "external recording" without time limitation. How all electronics inside the R5 will not fries if you keep recording externally for hours under a body that you can barely touch, but suddenly need limitati
  6. Try to find these for CFEcpress? So the card is outside the camera?
  7. Canon Just released a Firmware V1.1.1 for R5 and R6 Be aware of possible lock down on my hack finding last Sunday. Even if I think it will be a very fast answer to roll out a firmware in only 3 days, that's still a possibility. At least, it may be able to do a file comparison between V1.1.0 et V1.1.1 to see what changed is any.
  8. Penta Pi### contacted me and said they will write about it but nothing happens. Gerald Und### too, but so far nothing on his channel. The new firmware V1.1.1 have more coverage even if he brings very limited functionalities. I can notice 2 positive articles https://www.4kshooters.net/2020/09/09/canon-eos-r5-firmware-1-1-0-overhating-tests-and-results/ and https://www.diyphotography.net/the-eos-r5-overheating-issue-is-solved-and-its-a-super-simple-only-slightly-hacky-workaround/ It still better than nothing!
  9. No, No need to do anything It's very simple. Canon do a very simple calculation. When camera is running, a counter is setup. When the counter reach a certain level, you have a warning logo. If you keep recording, the Log will become a shut down. This raise a flag that I will call "Fake Overheating flag" At each of these step Canon is writing the exact time this occurs. Let's call it the "overheat start time". This is done in an eeprom that is kept even if you remove the battery. The writing occurs when you shut down with the power button. This is the mistake right there.
  10. Thanks for finally put my words in video. Do you mind if In put this one into my post? https://www.visionrouge.net/canon-r5-overheating-hack-solved/
  11. Confirmed by dellfonic user on magic lantern. This is the final refinement on my hack. You have the right time for your recordings!
  12. I have another step for anyone to test also. I should work, but need one beta tester to be sure. Follow the previous procedure to push forward the day as I discovered. When you see that the "overheat logo" is gone; turn off the camera using power button. [this is the extra step] At this time, the "overheat flag" is now written into memory. Turn back on the power with the power button. The camera is now booting from a regular boot. So if you have no warning here, the camera is absolute fine with temperature. This not a "special boot" anymore And the beauty of it, you can
  13. I do not have a R5, another user MagicLantern user did it for me if you check my posting. https://www.visionrouge.net/canon-r5-overheating-hack-solved/ The battery grip will act as a regular battery, so it's a no go. It hold the same door switch as I have understand. You can either use the screw in the door idea or use the dumb battery option that I prefer.
  14. This is primary tested by one user, he put all his camera details as reference. Please wait to get backed and test with the Firmware 1.1 also. 1) I really don't see why the card format should have any impact there as the camera is not recording during the shut down. This time, this is just the date/stmap that is modified and not read at this specific boot. 2) Yes, at each time your camera is displaying the overheat logo, you need to increment to the next day, hours, month, year. But if your camera, during lunch break is able to cool down by itself anyways, you can put back any date.
  15. Well, one tester is not enough, please try to do the experience if you have a R5. The procedure is explained here. https://www.visionrouge.net/canon-r5-overheating-hack-solved/ In short: - Power the camera with a external battery and close the door beside the R5 (you can also do the screw trick if you like) - Record video until you see the overheating logo, or even until the camera shut down. - Turn off the camera by using the power button so your recording parameters (ISO and so one) are saved. - Turn back on the power. - Go to the menu, Change the time of the day to +3 hou
  16. Ok, my trick works apparently. Tested by yourboylloyd on Magic Lantern Forum Record as you wish. When overheat occur. stop recording. Change the date. Drop the power (using the screw story or dumb battery) Put it back. Timer is gone! All camera parameters are saved. No need to open the camera, no need to lose your clip. BOOOMMMMM https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=24827.msg230515#msg230515
  17. Ok, here are new thouht after thinking a bit. Something is bothering me is the recovery time. Even without regular camera battery, or by pushing the time. The recovery time is not reduced. If it was just a flag to a memory that start to count, it will not be able to know how long the camera was actually off. It have to be a counter, not just a date stamp difference. This overheat counter IS inside this chip for sure. cause it can't hold 2 different date and the internal counter are quite limited. Either the current overheat time is written inside a eeprom, and so compare
  18. Ye, I also think so. There are other parameters that are rested when removing the Battery cell, there is another chip righ aside this one and I will guess it's a tiny eeprom as usual. If you put some fact together: -Removing the battery cell reset the fake overheat timer, reset the time and date and few shooting parameters, but keep others as custom functions. So a memory is also powered with this battery. This is very common and few RTC chip also have internal memory to do 2 functions in one (RTC+limited amount of parameters) This RX8130 do not have a memory register. So it have to
  19. I found crazy that the RTC is a dedicated chip place in the middle of nothing and so easy to access. I have a simple question. The RTC holds the time and day and can be access by the I2C bus. Either to program the time and the alarm and countdown. But when a alarm is set up, Pin 6 is the IRQ line. Usually, the IRQ ask the processor to check what is happening by reading the I2C but and read the value in this chip. Either to go from nothing to waring (and reprogram a new 5mn timer) or cut off the recording if they were already at this stage. Is simply cutting the pin 6 signal enough
  20. Someone suggested that the overheat icon should be changed with a middle finger on a future firmware... I love this idea!
  21. Thanks for sharing. It's look like they tweaked the recovery time and add new functionality to the infamous counter that now include the length of previous recording in the balance. If you shoot short clip,s you can shoot more of them (from 22 to 96 now in his testing) Recovery time is about 2 minutes wait for 1 minute recovery, or one minute wait for one minute recovery inside a fridge. Still a bit far from the graph I can see on this post threat. Recovery temperature look way faster than this. Bye the way; 0 apology from Canon so far. The best sentence is: "We have and will
  22. It's always laike this with all Canon camera. If you lose the power, all parameters are not saved. But here is what you should do. Put your camera parameters as you like until you are ready to shoot. Turn off the camera with the power switch (The recording parameters as shutter speed, aperture, iso,...) are saved there Turn on the camera. Record and drop the battery when you like. When you put again the battery, the parameters will be the same as last turn on/off sequence.
  23. Of course it is, and of course the actual temperature readings are below overheat threshold. I can't imaging Canon doing not one reading and shut-down if it goes to high during 15mn of normal recording in 8K or during the boot. And actually, the TLV61046ADBVR Just around the RAM module) have it's own temperature shutdown that you can't turn off. It's a Output Voltage Boost Converter, I can assure you that other component will do the same to not burn. I'm just playing as dumb as the one saying the "remove battery during recording" trick will kill your camera with overheat. In o
  24. There is no way this is a lack of sensor that push them to create a time limit. The overheat lock-down is artificial and not based on actual temperatures reading for most of the scenarios. Just to make my point easy to understand: There are 2 possible reasons for that: -Avoiding this camera to compete with more expensive models. -Doing a fast/cheap software development where you do not read temperature sensor, but just base all on time the camera is recording video. I will remove the possibility of the absence of temperature sensors as the ( MT53D512M32D2DS-053 ) which is
  25. Apparently,, according to the manual, when you simply unplug the HDMI connector, it will stop recording. Is this write the infamous timer flag? Another test to do with such... Press record on the camera with a HDMI screen, and stop the recording by unplugging the HDMI, not by using the record button...
