AmpGlow Canon 1100D

Question

Hi, I have the evaluation version and I generally like it for my Modified CANON 1100D.
But I have a problem, when using BackYardEOS an amp-glow is generated that does not appear when I use another application, it is related to the theme of the mirror parking, but I do not have this option activated and the virtual mirror does not ... no I understand why this failure seems to me. Thank you.

Hello: The problem is solved and good for BackyardEOS.

It is a fault of my camera that lets in some parasitic light and that I have the viewer well covered, problem in long exposures.

I have made the tests in my workshop with a normal general illumination> low, not in a real situation of a dark environment.

The reason why with BackyardEOS I detected this problem when comparing with EosUtility because for a lamentable accumulation of circumstances, the position of the camera was not the same in the two situations, in one had more external light than in the other ... result parasitic lights in one case and not the other ... I have learned something.

I put on the track of the problem that when repeating the tests the parasitic lighting was not the same if performed with daylight or with artificial lighting, result, repeating the tests in a controlled and dark environment there are no parasitic illuminations even with 300 seconds of exposure to 1600 ISO.

In short, BackyarEOS works perfectly for me (I'll buy a license), even activating the mirroring virtual system that works perfectly, which allows me to mark and use the Mirror Lock (I have it 3 seconds late).

Thanks for your attention. Greetings.

I'm not sure I understand but I can assure you than BYE does not introduce amp glow.  Amp glow is a physical camera issue and it not generated by software.

What do you mean by "he virtual mirror does not"?  Does not what? 

Are you in live view when taking your images that show amp glow?  If yes then this is the same as having mirror up.

If you get amp glow in the image capture screen and Virtual Mirror Lock is disabled then the amp glow IS generated by the camera; that I'm 1000% sure about that.

Hello: Thanks for your prompt response.
I will try to explain myself, my English is not good at all.
When I use my camera in long exposures> 180 seconds, with EOS-UTILITY I have no problem with amp.glow as it is an overlighting on the right side of the sensor, with the Astro Photography Tool - APT software either, always in the same conditions.
In the tests with BackarEOS, in the same conditions, if that overlighting appears in the right area of the sensor, I have disabled the option in Advanced Configuration + Virtual Mirror Lock and the check box Mirror Lock is not set by default is to 0. I will attach a sample.
Thanks and regards.

Your english is fine :)

This does seems odd, but BYE issues a simple take picture command and the camera then provides an image to BYE as-is.   Your image does show something on the right for sure but something has to be different.  Send me the log file so I can verify the camera settings.

BYE only uses commands that are supported by the Canon software library. This is also used by the EOS Utility.

With my T5i I have faint glow on the right side of my dark frames. This is with the camera untethered, so not caused by BYE.

Are you shooting JPG Snap images from the Frame and Focus screen. If so, having Live View active when you image could be a cause of amp glow.
