Stable version of Magic Lantern for 5Dmk3?

Is there a stable version of Magic Lantern for the 5Dmk3 (running the latest firmware)?

I have tried to wade through the various boards but just can seem to make head nor tail of it.

I actually don't need the RAW hack; I only need it for the Timelapse feature.

I don't have an Intervelometer and have promised to stop buying accessories. I wonder why Canon won't implement a simple onboard Timelapse feature like Nikon have. Guess they like selling the accessories, like that external Flash trigger (again something Nikon have built into the camera!).

Re: Stable version of Magic Lantern for 5Dmk3?

I'm not a mk3 user just a mk2 and 7D but sometimes I can glance over the mk3 thread to see major changes.

I recommend getting the latest nightly for mk3 using firmware 123 here which is dated apr 24: http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/

Then keep watch for major bug reports on this thread.

Magic Lantern for 5D Mark III 1.2.3

stable release takes a while, the nightlies are safe to use , as in it won't break your camera, but it might have bugs that might affect your shots.

But yeah, its safe to load and since you only need still features like the intervalometer, it should be ok.

Simon, I've been waiting as well for a stable build as well. I would have to downgrade my firmware to use the version they posted when I last looked. I finally gave up and ordered a Ninja. I bought a cheap intervelometer for the Mkiii and it seems to work well. I can't remember the brand at present.
