Looking at the mjpg 4k recording and associated frame grabs, I'm assuming if Magic Lantern is ever ported to this camera, that there's a decent chance of 4k silent photos without any sort of shutter speed limitations? That would be handy for timelapses, although the 1.74x crop certainly limits it's use.

Chipped in another $40. Traded my 70D for the 7D MK2 before I was able to familiarize myself with ML. Would love to put this fast CompactFlash interface to good use since the 70D will never do 1080P raw... Especially since the 7D MK2 lacks the 70D's 1:1 2.9x crop video mode that was so handy for extra reach...

Just keep in mind the 70D is likely to only do video at significantly lower resolution than other higher-end cameras due to the slow SD-card interface. If you're looking for RAW video (anything over 720P), the 70D is probably not the best upgrade, but for stills, it seemed handy.

Is there any way to help sponsor a 7D MK2 for an accomplished developer? I donated some to the generic magic lantern bitcoin address when I still had a 70D, but would like to help contribute towards a 7DMKII port. Even $20-50 from relatively few people would be able to cover a dev-cam.

It sounds like the original 7D was a bear, something about the dual DIGIC right?

EDIT: I realize it might not even be a matter of finances, but more of time. I understand the complexity of coding, and am not suggesting giving someone a 7DMK2 would magically produce a port unless they were actually interested in doing the extensive and time consuming work involved.

Just wanted to say that if you can afford a $200-600 phone, and a $1000+ camera, paying $8 to support an app developer isn't that much to ask.

That being said, I've found Wi-Fi on my 70D to be fiddly... I'll usually have to switch to a different set of connection settings on the 70d, then back to the set I'm trying to use, in order to get the camera to accept the connection. Not sure if it's the goofy permissions system on the camera possibly acting as a firewall, but I can oftentimes see the camera on the network (with a network scan), but am unable to connect to it using the app until I toggle to a different set then back.

Also keep in mind you'll need to use a different set of parameters on the camera when you use DSLRController as opposed to EOS Remote, since apparently the permissions system is bound to an app, not to a device. Since you can have 3 sets of settings on the camera (per connection mode) it's not too much hassle, just something to keep in mind.
