Hi Alex and Georg,

Very interesting project. I hope the Axiom guys know how lucky they are to get you both into the project.
And I'm just in time to grab a nice T-shirt.

I wish you all good luck and trust you get the best out of this more competitive camera.

Wow those are very high quality, natural and pleasing looking results. Well done!

Hi Africashot,

Very nice work. It looks like a good formula with the local company and footage you can collect in a day. Video shots are nice, image quality is good enough.
I've shot a promo of a camp in the Masai Mara back in 2011. It's really nice to do and I hope to do lots more.  Let's hope others won't take all the fish out of the pool, but that's life.  Good luck with further projects. If everything goes as planned I'll return to Masai Mara this summer for a 3 week shoot.

Hmm didn't know what that crop mode did till today lol. Makes getting macro shots super easy.

It also gives you a whole lot larger depth of field (DOF) at the same field of view (magnification of the subject). Distance to the subject matters for DOF. And you sort of override the closes focus distance by magnifying the image. A 50mm with closest focus at 0.35m can be used for macro work. You suddenly have a 150mm at 0.35m. Try to find a non-macrolens at 150mm that can focus this close. And finally you can choose to make the working distance bigger which is nice for alive insects.

Very nice work! Easy quick review now saves so much time

nice, i'll check that out

I am talking about just overlay functions as a fieldmonitor. No external controlling of the camera. The overlays are already very valuable on camera's that have decent video features but lack these overlays.

And I bet it's a lot of work. It's just an idea.

Very nice and responsive site, congratulations!
I think it's a well thought through setup and design that fits the current state of the project.
The amount of information on the frontpage is limited, but good to maintain in this very dynamic development environment. Maintaining manual and wiki will still be tough.

Good luck to you all! You have made so much wonderful progress. I miss being part of that.

Cleaned now :D

Anyway, we are hopefully launching a joomla-less homepage in the next days so stay tuned :)

Good to know that things will happen to the frontpage

Very nice work Spider. This angle also looks perfect with no overlap in details, like visible legs through the wings.

600D, its not perfect. I saw some artifacts.

This one works pretty well. Very nice work!

With all respect, what do you expect from a "compile it yourself" restricted nerd area? This guide and contributions from other video related blogs fill a gap and make this amazing technology accessible for a broader public that is more involved in film making than gathering deep technological insights in equipment and software.
Of course it would be great to have it for free, but $20 is fine by me too.

If you think the ML community should provide these things then don't rely on devs, admins and moderators. They have their hands full. Instead start a documentation team and just use the public wiki or write some nice article drafts and share them in the forum. With the help of others it can be made ready to publish. If you don't have all the facts, just ask in the forum. Just start writing and i'm sure the team will look over your shoulders to keep the facts right. has the platform and tools available. Everyone can contribute in this great manner and help each other out. If you want to donate, hire yourself for documentation writing.

Let's start, boys  -->    8)

Yes that's the spirit, good initiative.

Yes I see that now.  And I see RenatoPhoto, squig and you are doing a fine job with forum maintenance and build testing. Very nice.


Very nice info. Why not make a frontpage article from this nice info and show this great new feature to the public. I can help you with that if needed.

I love the 3D motion with the pyramids in shot 1:53. Very nice and inspiring!

Wow amazing work guys! Well done!

In my opinion the video quality was the key short coming of the Canon DSLRs and now that limitation is totally gone. Magic Lantern is an amazing product, but in the end it's the video result that counts. I use a GH2 at times for its nice video quality but I miss so many ML features. Raw video puts 5D3 back on the map and a model to be desired. This would indeed make HDR video obsolete now and opens up so much more possibilities. And now the L and Cinema glass will finally show their full potential.

Greetings and good luck to you all

As promised here is some of videos using ML camera trap settings.



WoW great shots. Also very nice shots of the Clouded Leopard. What a beauty!
I assume the resolution to be a bit crippled for copyright purposes, because I get similar results with my Bushnell Trophy HD camera.

I suspect the original preset enables lossless trimming and useful for archiving messy footage. File size and visible quality appear lossless.
Under windows 8 x64 the drag&drop fails but you can load files from the file menu.

In my experience only my Canon EF 100mm macro with USM works great. Very accurate step registration and reproduction.
I tried EF 50mm 1.8 and Tokina 400 5.6 and they didn't reach the preset endpoint.  I hear it's the USM type lenses that work work great.  Maybe others too.

One small addition.
Cropzoom is like post cropping a photo. So in terms of DOF a 200mm f2.8 doesn't turn into a 660mm f2.8. You do get the same angle, but maintain the DOF that comes with the 200mm f2.8 at full frame and a certain distance to the subject. Things like cropzoom, cropfactor and a teleconverter just take a smaller portion of the fullframe image, but maintain the exact same DOF.

An obvious purpose of using cropzoom is to get a subject bigger in frame at a certain distance. But the smaller lenses can't maintain a DOF to separate a subject from the background even with open apertures. So it's use has it's limitations there. For macro work it is the opposite and the benefits are huge. You either get a much bigger DOF at small distances than with a macrolens or get a much bigger working distance or a little of both.

Nice work! I like the way you both kept it intimate on locations that are not easy to shoot in. The use of vignetting is a valid choice for some scenes.

Great work.

Another option for the ML menu is putting it behind the MENU button. Add a first item "goto Canon menu"
