Lmao I booted my camera up today to test before my first concert shoot tonight and got a blue screen of death, which I wasn't familiar with magic lantern and of course had me sweating bullets. I looked it up, forgetting what day it was and apparently it only happens on April 1, which is hilarious at first but then I realized I do need to shoot later today for a job. I changed the date in the canon menu, but would if it would be possible to remove this joke mode in a future update, that would be great. Thanks!

+1

It might have been funny, if pressing the magic lantern button once would have just disabled it, but in it's current form... not so much. Mayor stress factor.

Blue Screen Crash.

I would think most people don't know about this "prank".
Why do we have to waste time trying to figure out what is wrong with the camera?
When you are using your camera and trying to get work done and this nonsense shows to make using ML not enjoyable.

This is not funny, not a joke and not professional.
Come on.  Just remove this stupid prank. Not funny, Ugh...

No I don't want to change the date.  Dates on files should be correct.

Prank your web site, but not in the firmware for god sakes.
current: 70D 112
old cameras: T3i, T1i

Bug: Crash with Canon 70-200 2.8 II IS.

sometime I can take a few pictures then crash or crash about a 30 seconds after turning on.
blue screen stating there is a problem.  turning off takes a while for screen to turn off.

have not had this error with the Canon 24-70 2.8 MkII

I have beta-4a installed. been using ML on many different cameras over the years. first time I have got this blue screen error.

known issue?
Change the date in the canon menu, it's an April fools joke programmed into magic lantern.

Hi fantastic people

Everytime i try to install the firmware my 70D says that its the incorrect firmware version..

Magic Lantern
Incorrect firmware version
Expecting a Canon 70D, with firmware version 112.
Please try installing ML for 70D 112 A
You may now remove your battery.

This may be a noob question, but yes I am a noob.. :'( Help plz.

So... 5D3 and 700D has 4K RAW now (almost), while 70D is still in beta? Why? Just question.

Answered on the download page - each camera port is done by volunteers who own the camera, in their spare time. There's no Magic Lantern organization that does project management or gives priority to this or that camera model - it's simply the camera owners showing enough interest for implementing or porting these features (not by asking, but by updating the source code on their own initiative).

So, your question could be rephrased as "why are the 5D3 and 700D owners reverse engineering their cameras, and publishing their progress without waiting for 70D owners to catch up?!"

FYI, on 70D there are some important unresolved issues (FPS override, raw overlays in photo mode) and so far nobody found the answer to them.

Also FYI, most of the recent progress I've been posting lately applies to 70D and all other cameras. However, a 70D owner (I'm not one of them) has to follow the same steps and customize them for each camera (rather than complaining) - and the same is true for most other camera models.
