Who said that anyone is interested in income? For me it is like dmilligan said: a hobby project. Your calculation is really unrealistic if you would emphasize how much time I spent into bringing ML to 70D. And I am only talking about me - not other device maintainers / contributors / devs. Anyways let's return to topic please and stay on topic. I don't wanna have the 70D thread going offtopic:

I will recheck the audio meters and see if I can solve the reported issues (no promises)...

Ok all, lets take a deep breath, professionala and enthusiasts alike.

Thanks to the dedication of unpaid people such as nikfreak and others, ML has taken Canon DSLR's from an being an inadequate filmmaking tool to a pretty good filmmaking tool. Everyone can enjoy and explore the RAW capabilities but lets also keep an eye on fundamental features that are currently not right such as Audio. Pretty much everything else is working extremely well in Beta 1. I have been testing it for five days.

I thought that real professionals would be recording audio from a stand alone recorder, like a Tascam or Zoom and not from 70D.

Very well said @dmilligan! Although I am by no means a professional nor a photographer by hobby -- besides I just simply enjoy how/what certain people do together as a whole to not only move this project forward as well as others on a daily basis.

This is the audio I used for the sound test comparisons between Canon & MLV Audio levelers: Audible Dynamic Range Sound Test

https://vimeo.com/137855378

Looks pretty close to being spot on (unless you guys were referring this for recording MLV files not giving out the expected audio levels? I also confirmed this on both AE and FCPX whereas the Audio Levels were showing pretty close to what I was seeing in the clip, if not spot on!).

Hope this help clears things up.

      @Kaidian & TWIMC

   Just did a comparison test of the ML to Canon Audio/VUs on my 70D+B1/111B & found them to be

Pretty Darn Close to being a BangOn DeadMatch.

   It might be helpful to have the Peak Indicators Hold Position for a bit longer - If that is @all possible.

Thanks nikfreak and others for showing audio levels working OK.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled ML and now my audio is perfect. I have no idea why a mismatch was happening with my original installation several days ago. I can not even replicate the mismatch as no matter what I do audio levels work perfectly now.

Any chance FPS override will return soon? Otherwise is there a place to download old versions like Alpha-7b? Thanks again for all your hard work.

Added the requested 7b releases to the changelog section. Please note that I don't support older releases and don't want the thread to be mixed-up with old release discussions to avoid confusions.
I cannot make an ETA for the fps override feature. More info here.

Hi, does anyone know if this version of Magic Lantern has Movie Restart?

I see it has movie tweaks enabled but no details if this includes movie restart.

Thanks!

yes it's available. It depends on which fw revision you run.There was a bug report recently which reported it as not working but I just fixed it this minute for 70D.111B.
70D.111A wasn't affected but I was too lazy to try it out (30mins). Fix for 70D.111B will be included in next update:

Can somebody please let me know if there is any way magic lantern could make it so video recording is NOT disabled with wifi on?

This would be IMMENSELY helpful, in that it would allow us to use DSLR Controller to have a wireless monitor instead of having to go through USB. Especially if you are using a gimbal, this would be SO helpful.

Any and all responses from the community much appreciated. Thanks so much for all your hard work.

Use the TP-Link portable wireless router, works great

Hi Nikfreak, many thanks! I'll look out for 70D.111B.

Ah just realised, so it was 70D.111B that didn't work, in which case I guess I'll look out for the next update I guess 70D.111C?

No it will be called Beta-2 once announced.
A / B are only firmware revisions and the C you state doesn't luckily exist (yes!!!)

nikfreak: I do undertsand that this is a hobbie for you, and therefore you are dedicating your time and effort to this, for which I want to say THANK YOU. But I want to ask: How high in your priority list is enabling focus functioanlity? thanks

70D differs in terms of focus. It isn't jut words (has dualpixel af). For the moment we got DOF view and trap focus (in photo mode) as well as focus peak. Rest is buggy but I haven't been able to fix it. In other words: it might take some true amount of time until you see rack or follow focus coming to 70D (if ever).

With 70D rack focus, not sure but to me touch screen pull focus is as useful and much easier to use. 

With AF facial recog, or even singe zone AF, with AI servo, is as useful as follow focus.

Focus peaks & zebras are great.  I like to use both for photo as well as video.

But if we could get Dual ISO for HDR shooting, and variable bit rate to pump up H264 detail now that would be kick ass.  JM2C.

It's in there.  I have an "A" cam,  Movie restart works with H.264 recording.  I've tested.

Ah ouch should've known that & guess I got caught up confirming along with others.

My apologies for allowing this one to slip under my radar.

Now I'd better be quiet until the next update. [emoji87]

but I Forgot that just back on 30Aug I had done 3 H264 Vid's of some clouds that I planned to turn into TimeLapses & I let

the 29:59 Quit be My Prompt to change to another view.

   NikF ~ Thanks again Ever So Much for All Your Dedication to this 70D Project !!
