This is the one i made myself you need a microphone transformer for the shure sm58 or similar
Top right page 5
What I did was I built myself a small preamplifier with a gain control and used that to make adjustments you can either make your own using an opamp or buy one (juicelink or the like)
Here is a link to the one I plan on building next (I'll try to find the schematic to the one I have now sometime but I think this one is better)
I cannot say this won't fry your camera so be careful
Feature Requests / faster (wireless) flash control

When you have the built in flash up to have pressing the flash button again bring up canon "built in flash function settings" menu or if the flash button is hard to access maybe double hitting the * button?

Feature request:

Thanks a lot for the awesome firmware it beats anything canon (or nikon or anyone else) ever put out.
Another question if I format the card with my XSi will make the card back into an unbootable card (ie: I can delete the autoexe.bin without it breaking my camera)?
Right it won't boot without card
No that was the firmware I had before I sent it in to canon canon says they upgraded it to 1.1.1 ( but they also said they checked it before they sent it to me)
1.1.0 not sure which ml version though (i got it around the beginning of july)
as a side note to someone who is not familiar with computers and software the warning about the bootdisk flag is a bit confusing may i humbly suggest an alternate wording
When you install magic lantern it does two things 1) It turns the card you are using into a bootable card. 2) It tells the camera that every time it turns on to check for a bootable card  (this is known as the BootDiskFlag) and IF the card IS bootable THEN execute the file AUTOEXE.BIN IF the card IS bootable and it DOESN'T find this file (for example you deleted it) it will not start up and you will have to remove the battery and card, reinsert the battery (not card) and load the correct files (the ones that you unzipped when you got Magic Lantern) onto the card using a computer. then reinsert the card. You can still use a nonML card to boot with canons firmware.
hope this is helpful
they wrote that they upgraded to the latest firmware so i guess canon bricked it (hooray for canon)
i did clear the bootflag before sending it to them lest they put up a fuss. But they also replaced the main board so it defiantly wasn't enabled. your saying that if it is not enabled it wont try to run the user code so the i guess canon bricked it. i just wanted to confirm that so that when i send it in canon doesn't find anything and blame it on me. thanks a lot for the great firmware I used it for a month (non stop) and it was great. I would not have been able to video w/o it.
no. tried removing battery, checked battery,  without card with different card, no lens, with lens...
Camera Emergency Department / bricked by ML or canon?

i sent my camera (60D) to canon to get fixed (hot pixels on sensor) they sent it back and i put in my batery and card that had ml on it and the camera didn't turn on.
can a bootable card with ml on it brick a camera that doesnt have the boot disk enabled. my XSi is fine with the card . or did canon just mess up

I believe if the card is formatted as bootable and there is no autoexec.bin then it locks up but I could be wrong. I've had no problems using non-ML installed cards.

so the card has to be bootable (like an iso for windows) for the camera to need an autoexec.bin to boot. Can this be added to the FAQ it is very confusing to those of us who don't know how computers (and cameras) boot
also how is a card made bootable is it in the formating?
