Magic Lantern Firmware
Does anyone have experience with Magic Lantern Firmware Canon? I found this and I thought this could be quite useful when filming.
I am wondering if i need this..
They say that it can work addition to the normal firmware. Only then should you put it on your SD card, and then still run a firmware upgrade, it would only be written to the RAM memory ..
Do i need to do this.. i mean, my film camera (60D) misses some things like on screen audio etc...
Some things i could find
- No harm to the original firmware. It will run from the SD card onto the RAM of the camera
- Thousands of installations, but no one has bricked their camera.
- Canon will not find it if you return it to canon because it was in RAM, removing the battery is removing the RAM information, so ML is gone
- On screen audio adjustments
- External headphone through the AV (with special cable)
- HDR Filming
- Autofocus while filming
And many more.. i think i am going to try this...
How it works is it runs on top of the normal Canon Firmware, you don't install it on your camera. It enables a boot flag in the firmware then it runs off the card. You still have access to all of your original options it just adds extra features. Like a live view histogram, video scope, audio meters ect, ect, ect.
Insert disclaimer here.... as always you can break things when you install non canon software/firmware......
Thats a good one, i saw that they are releasing the 2.3 version on the 13th of august. And they added the Canon 60D 1.1.1 version which i have installed. I just upgraded from 1.1.0 to 1.1.1 so i have to wait till the 13th
But thanks, i will definatly install it! I am convinced!
Thanks for the tips. I think i will install it straight away monday.. Even though, i think i am going to record it to share it with you guys..
Anyway, looking forward to monday...
