Re: Magic Lantern for 60D!

Great - he's more than half-way. I don't understand why all 60D owners haven't contributed - do they not know what this firmware will do (60D has some of these features already)?

GUI menus: press the ERASE button to display them, SET/DISP to change values
Bit rate control (QScale parameter) for the H.264 encoder
Zebra stripes for overexposed / underexposed areas
Spotmeter, histogram
Cropmarks (16:9, Cinemascope, Fisheye)
Intervalometer (classic or HDR)
Trap Focus: camera takes a picture when something comes in focus
Remote release with either the LCD face sensor or audio trigger
Rack focus
Stack focus (Live View only)
Lens data computation
Onscreen audio meters
Manual audio gain, selectable input source, disable AGC and digital filters
Display time remaining during video recording
Debug functions (display CMOS temperature, screenshot, logging)
Fine tuning for ISO and shutter speeds; also ISO 25600
Kelvin white balance
Clean LiveView display without any overlays (selectable)
On-demand auto tuning for ISO, shutter & kelvin white balance
Quick access to some useful settings like HTP, ALO and contrast

It would be sad if contributions stopped without reaching the goal...

Re: Magic Lantern for 60D!

Just the zebra stripes (for under and overexposure) and rack focus (telling you when you are in focus) are worth their weight in gold if you shoot video. 60D owners - let's get this done! Make a small contribution now at the bottom of this page:

Yes, and audio levels while recording would be nice :)

Re: Magic Lantern for 60D!

I can hear a voice in my head not to mess around with my new 60D if it is still under warranty...

Re: Magic Lantern for 60D!

Stelios mine is still under warranty as well but I had to see what the fuss is about and ML really is incredible. Pretty straight forward to install, follow the Wiki 550D instructions however use the 60D files. ML runs off the SD card so if you don't have a SD card with ML on it doesn't boot up and you're cam is back to it's old self. Personally I can't imagine ever shooting without ML again, you can even change your white balance while recording. Still a few bugs to be ironed out with the Magic Zoom feature and a few other small issues but for the most part it's pretty solid.

Re: Magic Lantern for 60D!

Nicholas you mean that it uses the same SD card that you record the images on? Is it easy to install? I am worried that if I make a mistake in installing it I might damage my camera.

On another note. Where in SA are you living. I used to live in Joburg (for about 26 years) and now I am back home in Cyprus.

Re: Magic Lantern for 60D!

Small world I tell you - I'm near Potchefstroom less that 2hours drive from JHB but I work in JHB all the time. I didn't know what I was doing when I was installing ML either I didn't even read the instructions I just tried doing it myself so you can't screw up that up, I usually only read the manual after I cant get something to work.

I installed it on Firmware version 1.0.8.

Follow these instructions:
550d install - Magic Lantern Firmware Wiki

But use these files instead of those in Step 0: (1.0.8 or 1.0.9 is your camera firmware version).
Index of /magiclantern

Once everything has been installed download these crop mark images and put them in a directory called "cropmks" on you SD card with the autoexec.bin.
https://bitbucket.org/sztupy/magic-l...t/4a3c1b0257bf

If you did everything correctly and turn on your camera you will see it load ML from the SD card (same card you store your images on when recording), press the "Trash" button to bring up the menu, other keys to change settings is the SET, Q & PLAY (Image preview button). Lastly check for updates as the current version has a few bugs. 60D - Magic Lantern Firmware Wiki
