No no 7D then?   :'(

Just joined today on the promise of ML for the 7D. 

Sorry - not a coder.  Unable to assist in that side of it.

Oh, I do hope that sensor tweak appears on the 7D!  I really struggle with dark, miserable days this time of year.  Was photographing a race last weekend and the images are either dark, so loose detail and noisy when you brighten them up or if I used a high ISO, even with NR in-camera, they were still noisy.  The afternoon was nice and bright but not for long. 

I use Neat Image for NR and Lightroom as my main workflow tool.  Looking forward to seeing the difference ML brings.

Think I found it - so 7D is on Alpha 2 - is that correct?  If so, I'm having it!  Now!   ;D
Got it, extracted all the files, then discovered I've left me card reader at home!  So tonight's job is....

Hi all

I'm Matt, live in Cambridgeshire, UK.  I have been a photographer for over 30 years, started when I was 16 at school and nearly took it up as a career.  I so with I had!  I now shoot with a 7D as my main workhorse.  Mostly sports, my son's rowing club and abstract/architecture.  We travel to Italy a lot so tons of shooting there.   I first tried digital in 2002 with a whopping 2Mpx Fuji! 

I'm an IT consultant so no stranger to loading firmware and hacking.  I've been aware of ML for some time, always fancied having a go but there hasn't been the 7D support.

Really looking forward to playing with ML.  Not really that interested in video but the dual ISO looks really interesting.  Does ML improve the 7D's low-light performance?  It's the only thing I find the 7D really struggles with especially this time of year.
