Tragic Lantern / Re: 6D - Install guide and raw shooting.

Step 11 to 15 will do.

Thanks, so I will do it to copy Magic Lantern on two more SD cards :)

@ 1%: Im interested in the technical aspekt and I'm only wondering: What is the reason we have to install an old firmware first and then installing the newer firmware for the 6D? I mean everything will be delted if I upgrading the firmware and then format the SD card. So why we have to do those additional steps? I'm sure there is a reason, but I'm only interested in that :) Thanks!

Great work guys! One more question: How can I install this Magic Lantern-version on a second and a third SD-card? Do I have to do this steps again or do I have to repeat all steps from number 1? Thanks!

"By noisyboy:

8.5: Seriously, FORMAT YOUR SD CARD DUDE! Even if you are used to this whole Magic Lantern thing - just do it. It saves the risk of potential problems which I can't advise you how to fix.

9: From the zip in step one, extract the Canon 1.1.3 Firmware and place onto the route directory of your SD Card.

10: Put your SD Card back in your 6D and With a full battery, upgrade your cameras firmware to 1.1.3 as per the Canon 6D instruction manual. Once this is finished, power down camera and remover the SD Card.

11: From the zip in step 1, once again extract and run EOScard.exe. Check the EOS_DEVELOP and BOOTDISK boxes and press save.

12: Navigate to your SD Card and delete (DON'T FORMAT) all the files you can see there.

13: From the zip in step 1, extract all of the files and folders contained within the "Files to run Magic Lantern on 6D Firmware 1.1.3" folder and drag them into the route directory of your SD Card.

14: Put the card back into you camera and switch on.

15: In "M" (MANUAL) shooting mode, power camera back on and hit the Trash button. Voila! Hello Magic Lantern Menu"

Thanks guys I just bought the 600D and installed Magic Lantern successfully. I love the timelapse-function :) There is only one bad thing at 600D. With 400D i was wont that the display goes black if i look through the viewfinder. It seems that the 600D has no sensors for that feature.

@ 1%: Yes you are right I think I will order the 600D and also buy for 300 Euro an additional lense (Tamron 70-300mm). With 400D I have a Tamron 17-50mm (no VC) and very happy with that lense...

Thanks for help. 60D is a too expensive for me and I don't know if that is 300 Euro more worth. 600D now has a really good price. I also was happy with 400D - only the low-resulution-display is too bad so I want an upgrade. Also the display of 600/650D is more flexible. I did a lot of astro-picx so I need that.

So do you recommend the 650D and I should not buy the 600D, right?

Don't understand what you mean...

Really? But it would be very angrily for me if I now buy the 600D and Magic Lantern for 650D comes out 3 month later ;) Touchscreen and 5 pictures per second at 650D are very nice =)

General Help Q&A / Is it worth to wait for Magic Lantern @ 650D or buy 600D?

Hi guys,

at the moment I use a Canon 400D with 400plus for timelapse. In 1-3 month I want to upgrade my camera. So should I buy the 600D because then I can use Magic Lantern? Or should I wait for the 650D-Firmware and then buy the 650D? What whould you do? Do you have any idea how long it takes to create the 650D-firmware?

Thanks a lot!
