Record indicator not visible

Issue #1759 new
Former user created an issue

5D3 nightly build 11/13/13 (though I haven't found a working time indicator in any build going back to mid September)

top right of the screen only displays space remaining on card.

Not a major bug but a function I use constantly.

    Same here on a 650d. The top-right info is the space left on the card. Is the current time on top left really usefull ?

    It's happening on standard recording (not RAW).

    On this capture, 2nd image, the top right indicator is always the space left on the card. capture

    What indicator would you like to display?

    • Approx. time until card full (can be guessed in H264 mode)

    • Time since the start of the recording

    Update: On today's nightly, magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2014Feb02.650D104, elapsed time is sometime displayed in the top right corner, then blinking.

    A smaller font, is used.

    I have a fix for this waiting for pull request acceptance. Hopefully in the next day or two it will go live, you can choose between elapsed time, estimated time remaining, average bitrate and instant bitrate. Edit: See request here: and this is currently for 5D3 only. I could port this to others, but don't have the camera to test, if its not working on the other devices.
