Welcome to my new site / blog!

Alex from the “Magic Lantern” team has officially “jailbroke” the 5d Mark iii and is now working on getting the Magic Lantern Firmware ported over from previous camera builds.  Excited to see what they come up with next!

If you would like see new exciting features on your Canon DSLR, check out the Magic Lantern Wiki page.

  1. Some of the new or improved features include a completely re-done (and much-improved) menu system, false color exposure aid, customizable crop marks, five different histograms, “magic circles” (1:1 focus magnifiers), and CMOS temperature readout. As with all Magic Lantern versions, this is unsupported, at-your-own risk stuff. Note this only works on Canon firmware 2.0.4 — if you’re on a later version, you can downgrade to 2.0.4 with the file here . I don’t currently have access to my 5D , so has anyone else out there used the AJ5.0 version yet?

  2. As shown in the video, a file named ‘magiclantern.fir’ is copied to the CF card and “Update firmware” is selected from the menu. The running firmware shuts down, loads the file into RAM and starts it running. Rather than reflashing the ROMs, this new program starts the DryOS boot process to install itself.

  3. Magic Lantern now has a place where you can get help, ask questions, share your photos and videos, report bugs, suggest new features, and share your own improvements and extensions – right here, on http://www.magiclantern.fm .

  6. It’s been developed by a group of generous and enthusiastic people in an open source evolution. They have a new website: http://www.magiclantern.fm/ . The hackers always give a very clear disclaimer that the hack can damage your camera, but because of the brave few in the community who have supported and tested this software, they seem to have developed something that is less scary to use on one’s precious camera. The first version I used did occasionally crash my camera and give me a few cold sweats – before I realised all you had to do was turn the camera off and remove the battery for a few moments. That classic nugget of repair advice; turn it off and on again.

  8. Hi everyone, Magic Lantern team has today officially launched a new website to give better and more user-friendly experience. There you will be able to find the latest ML news, instructions, download ML newest versions, etc. The site is still under beta-testing, but will be fully operating very soon. Remember that donations are the only support they get, so please consider doing so using the “Paypal Donate” button at the website. They work hard to bring all of us those amazing features to our cameras that Canon does not care about or want to implement (keeping cameras always “crippled”). Visit the new site at: http://www.magiclantern.fm/ Regards.

  9. Many 7D users never thought they would be able to run Magic Lantern on their cameras like their friends did with their other Canon cameras. It was thought that the firmware of the camera was just impossible to crack. Then yesterday the magic lantern team said they had made the first successful patch of the 7D.
