Installing Magic Lantern
This guide is only valid for version 2.3. We will NOT support beta versions and nightly builds. We strongly advise to use the official Magic Lantern version only. Those are well tested and reliable.
Before installing Magic Lantern, you need to:
Firmware updates in general can damage your camera. Read the section in your camera manual before updating your firmware. If you are not comfortable with the risks, stop reading and delete the software before you are tempted to try running it on your camera.
Magic Lantern v2.3 works only with the following camera firmware versions:
You can check your firmware version by setting your mode dial to Manual (M) and looking in the Canon menu.
Nothing bad will happen if you try to run ML on a different firmware version - the card LED will start blinking and you'll have to take the battery out. Magic Lantern checks firmware version before attempting to run.
Don't just delete the Magic Lantern files from the card! If you do, the camera will freeze at startup and you'll have to take the battery out.
