Hey folks, I'm not sure if this is a bug but:

Starting today on my 5D Mark II, when I go to 5x or 10x zoom using the magnification button to check focus, I cannot use the "star" button to zoom out! All pushing this button does is brighten the display at 5x or 10x zoom.

This is super irritating, as I want to be able to quickly go from 5x to 10x and back like I normally would.

What do folks think? Did I brick my camera?

The zoom out button works in Play/Preview mode, but no longer in Live View. Even with a non-magic lantern card, the button does not work as it is supposed to.

Any thoughts?
Hey folks,

It's been a long time since I used Magic Lantern, but I'm trying  to figure this out––I've managed to make rack focus work on my 5D Mark II (and it is super cool) but the problem is that, immediately upon completing the rack focus, ML stops the recording––not super helpful if you're doing a long tracking shot on a slider and want to have ML handle rack focus.

I did a search on the forum and found this question asked a couple times, but no answer. Can Magic Lantern keep recording after completing a rack focus, or is that impossible?
General Help Q&A / Confused about T4i/650D support
August 08, 2013, 03:13:41 PM
First off, greetings everyone on the Magic Lantern forum. I'm a newbie, and this is my first post, but for the past couple months since I heard about Magic Lantern I've been really impressed about what's going on here.

I've also really been anticipating the RAW video movement and getting that up and running. After seeing far sharper DSLR video coming from a hacked GH2, I'd been regretting my purchase of a T4i (I've always been a Canon guy for stills, and am a student, so it seemed a natural upgrade) because even with ideal settings, the video just hasn't been as sharp.

The RAW video seems to level that playing field, at least for the 5D Mark II.

So here are my questions. I apologize if the answers are already available somewhere, but I've had a bit of trouble navigating the site!

1) Is the T4i/650D supported for a stable/alpha release of ML? On the main page it lists the 650D as supported, but when I click on the download page, it doesn't list the 650D/T4i as either a stable release or Ports in Progress––what's the deal?

2) Is it conceivable that in the near future the T4i will be able to shoot RAW video at 1080p for an extended period (beyond a few frames) or is this camera just not going to be capable of this?

3) What's the post processing like for the RAW video? I've found conflicting answers about this. Some folks say that you can't import on the Mac. I'm confused!

Thank you for reading!
