Canon 70d ML flickers on and off.

Issue #2540 duplicate
Miguel Nova created an issue

Hi. I just downloaded and installed ML on my Canon 70d but the ML menu doesn't stop flickering on the flip out screen. The software works as it should but the flickering is the only issue. It stays on the ML menu but turns on and off repeatedly. I unistalled it and re-installed but it still does it.

    I was trying to upload a video but it was taking too long to upload. I wil try again tomorrow but from reading the reply in depth, thats the same issue. Question.... When you say the viewfinder cant handle ML, you mean i need a separate montior for the camera in order to use it without flickering?

    Lol! Sorry I just had the viewfinder word in my head but I meant the flip out screen lol.

    Interesting. On the EOSM this doesn't happen when the dialog times out (Canon doesn't draw over ML), but the "original fix" did (the one already in the ML source that was commented out with a macro). I removed a call to bmp_off() and start_redraw_flood() to get it to work without the ML menu temporarily disapearing.

    I can confirm this is how it works for 70D from the beginning (the time your PR appeared). Still better than being closed though

    Definitely agree is better than being closed. Also, i get "err" a lot when i press the shutter button. I need to remove the battery and restart it. Dont know if this is a common issue too.
