I have been using the live view EOS function on my 5D mark iii for years now and I have not had an issue until today. I use this in order to stream and record videos, however after around 15 minutes the live view freezes and crashes. After firing it back up I can no longer access the live view however I still have access to the shutter, ISO and files ect .... I am not sure what seems to be the issue.
Things I have tried so far;
Use EOS 2 and not 3
Taking out the SD card
Running the 5D in photo mode
Running the 5D in video mode
I am currenly out of ideas now. I understand there is an issie with Windows 10 and EOS right now.. might that have something to do with it? I am currently running windows 10.
Any help would be great!
Problem solved Part 2
This morning my WiFi connection did the same thing transfer 2 pictures and freeze I was thinking what I did differently from yesterday when everything was going so smoothly I did transfer over 600 pictures thru WiFi with no problem.
And Eὕρηκα, I found the problem!
after updating my Router I never turn ON my VPN but in the morningn after restart the VPN loads automatically.
So now I know the VPN causes the problems with WiFi connection and camera.
Some results for transfer 10 RAW images 653Mb total
1) WiFi to the computer on Lan (connected to router with cable) 3min 18sec (19.8sec per image)
2) WiFi to directly to laptop not using network or router 3min 51sec (23.1sec per image)
3) WiFI using network setting camera WiFi to router - laptop WiFi to router 8min 24sec (50.4sec per image) I have to find why it so long and tweak that.
4) Cable USB 3.0 17.75sec (1.7sec per image)
5) Cable USB 2.0 27.0sec (2.7sec per image)
The test with USB3.1 connection went completely wrong
I was described myself as a computer guru and I was ripped off by local computer store ??? Technician ??? This card is not USB 3.1 only USB 3.0 with USB Type C 2.4A Quick Charge green USB on the back whatever this means this port does not recognize anything just charge.
There are not USB 3.1 cards with Internal USB3.0 header so far I search.
Ok, I will slap myselff in the head and call silly
Same problem here with my 5D Mark IV.
the same issue here 5D mark IV it freeze after transfer 5-15 pictures
dose not matter destination
dose not matter what memory SD odr fast CF
dose not matter battery, cable or grip
install-reinstall update all the same freeze after 5-15 images transfer
Camera was already sent to Canon for repairs, electrical system has been switched but did not resolve the issue.
Any news on this one?
Thanks and cu
After using live view I find the camera computer will crash. It may crash after a few minutes or a few hours. Only way I have found to avoid this is to cycle power to the camera (NOT on/off switch), actually unplug it if using AC adapter or remove battery.
Other issue with live view is that camera will overheat and stop working if in live view too long.
Hope that helps.
