Question...I only wanna get rid of the Box (face detection?) That is always in the center while recording....If I can get that disabled...I can do the rest....Thoughts?
1100D is an inexpensive option to start using ML, true. It has lower resolution than 1200D, but this also means larger pixels and good performance for night photography.
But current implementation of ML for 1100D has some limitations. Mainly in features related to RAW data reading: ETTR, Dual-ISO, RAW histogram, RAW Zebras. I think they do not work in Liveview mode on the 1100D.
There are other options; you can get a used 500D or 550D, they are also affordable and will provide you that features missing in 1100D. It depends on your specific needs.
There are some tables that show ML features available on different camera models:
Some of them can be a little outdated. So best thing you can do, before buying a camera, is to read thoroughly the specific thread for that camera in the "Camera specific discussion" section, to know last news about available features and known issues with your desired camera model.
Excuse my poor English. As many people here, I am not a native English speaker.
And please, do not consider Walter a rude person, he is doing a great job here, patiently guiding new users through their first steps installing and starting to use Magic Lantern. Your post asking for a video explaining how to port Magic Lantern to a new camera, might have sounded too surrealistic for him. As explained, that is a very complex task. Your question is somehow like asking for a short video to learn how to compose a simphony, or build a rocket for a mission to Mars ...
Quote from: josepvm on August 08, 2015, 12:36:55 AMThank you Josepvm. I understand that there are many requests, but did not realize how time consuming it was to be developed. I thank you for your respectful response. I currently have a T5/1200D. I will work to get a T3/1100D because that is one of the cameras right?
The answer to your question is that porting ML to a new camera is a very difficult and very time consuming task. And can be done only by highly skilled developers, who know a lot of C and ARM assembly programming, and that had spent a lot of time learning specifically how Canon firmware and Magic Lantern code work. There is a lot of information in the forum about all this stuff.
Current developers have said several times that they have no time to port ML to new cameras. There are 13 camera models already supported. And only keeping all this ports up to date is a task too big for current ML team.
You have just asked a question, true ... but there are too many requests flooding the forum from users continuosly demanding ports for more cameras ... and this is not possible by now, as explained. And that constant pressure is very annoying for the devs, and does not help the project at all.
So, if you need ML, please take it as it is now, and try to get a camera that already supports ML.

And the amount you wanna spend?
