Feature Requests / Transparent Overlay (Image Attached)
« on: February 04, 2014, 03:58:20 PM »
Hey Guys,

I've done several searches but I couldn't find any information about this. I'm using a Zacuto EVF monitor, which is 16:9 instead of 3:2 like the Canon monitor.
That means, the magic lantern information has to lay on top of the video frame you are capturing.

Currently the background of the overlay information (shutter, aperture, ISO,...) is black. Is it possible to make this background transparent, so that you can see the information behind that?
Are there any other people here using the Zacuto EVF and what are your findings with the layout and Magic Lantern?

The red line is the video frame being captured. (Above is not showed because of the audiometers)

PS: I'm using the latest nightly build (just downloaded it)


Feature Requests / Audio offset
« on: October 17, 2013, 05:51:19 PM »
Hey guys,

I've been having a sync problem since I had my 5D2 while recording sound into the camera (through an amplifier). Apperantly (some) 5D2, 7D and T2i camera's have this problem.
The sound is 2 frames ahead of the video.

Here is a thread that discussed this problem (, however there is no solution. Maybe a next feature for ML that ables you to set an offset in frames to the audio recorded with teh video stream on the camera?

Thanks in advance!

General Chat / Canon 5D2 running on 5 volts
« on: February 07, 2013, 09:29:02 AM »
Hey everyone,

I recently got a V-plate to power my LCD monitor and 5D2 camera. The output of the V-plate is 2x5 volts and 1x7 volts.
The 7v is reserved for the camera. But unfortunately my LCD monitor cannot run on 5v. So I have to attach it on 7v.

The camera however is able to run on 5v. Everything works perfectly, only my shutter sounds a little different (a more higher tone).

My question is, if this is healthy for my camera? Should I continue like this, or look for another solution and power my camera with 7v as it should be?

Thanks in advance!
