Going through some of the footage I shot I noticed some flickering issue with the footage where the exposure flickers high and low on some parts of the footage.. anyone else is having the same ordeal? any workaround?

Most tripods designed for photographers are not able to resist torque and that's why most video tripod legs have two (or more) parallel tubes. And yes, it means it will be not that cheap as a tripod with a simpler design. But a cheap tripod not doing the job is not exactly the best way to spend your money, even with my 2 cents counting in.

Thank you very much for these complete answers, I really appreciate, it's gonna help me a lot !
I didn't think about any external gear but the ND filter seems to be the easiest way of doing it ! Also, thank you for your e-mail ;-)
I should also invest in a good tripod, mine is a little weak now, I bought it for a bridge a few years ago, now it has to deal with a 700D with the Sigma mounted on

If you would like an up to date build with audio meters I updated my version so it is up to date as of today Feb 26 2014. Also includes the fps/shutter value fix.

Help me please ! Is this a 700D ML bug or am i just too dumb to understand it ?
I got 25fps pal video mode. Then i go to Magic lantern Menu. I adjust the shutter to 1/50 and get 162 degree shutter.
-> I adjust the shutter to 1/45 and get 179 degree shutter.
How is this possible ? i thought 2 * fps is the 180 degree shutter.
I just dont know what to choose now. 1/50 because people say this should be the 180 degree shuter, or 1/45 because ML tells me its 180 degree.
thanks in advance and best wishes,

Honestly it is working great for me so, I don't see any problem getting it, It just can't control audio right now, but you already have that in Canon menu now, so you really don't need the control in ML. I use MLV_REC over Raw_Rec and it works great and with sound, Raw_Rec works fine, but I go with MLV.

Ok, after trial and error debugging with Glassescreditsroll, I came up with a good temp solution for fulltime meters that works exactly the same on the 650d and 700d https://bitbucket.org/mk11174/t5i/downloads/ML_700D_Meters_Jan_30_2014.zip
It enables Photomode remote shoot without going into Audio Menu and meters work fulltime in Movie Mode.
If you notice the meters are not the same levels when you first start cam compared to how they are when you record a movie, don't worry, it means you are using Manual Gain Control in Canon Audio Menu. This temp solution just gets meters going and it does it in Auto Gain Control mode, so this is why your levels will look differ at first, but good news is, you can either set Canon Gain control to Auto and levels will be same no matter what, whether you record or don't record, or restart cam.
Or if you are one to use Manual Control of Canon Gain, than just simply record a 1 second clip and when you stop that recording, that will kick the levels into Manual mode to match Canons setting, or simply just goto the Canon levels menu 1 time and that will also do it.
But once you restart camera, you will have to go back to Canons Audio menu or just record a 1sec clip again.
But if you Have Canon Gain Control set to Auto, then you wont have to do any steps at all, they will just work fine.
So nothing is wrong with the levels if they are differ at first start compared to when you record, it is just ML does not know how to control the gain yet, so I have it simply turn meters on in Auto Gain mode. I can set it to Manual, but it would be useless, since the Audio Chip is not programmed yet, so the changes you make in Canon Menu wont reflect the ML levels, I can only hardcode a value in ML code and it will not be same as Canon level, so it is just pointless till the Audio chip is fully coded and configured to work with ML.
For now, I just basically turned the meters on and they reset when they need to so they will work correctly.
This new way does not mess with wind filter so there wont be any issues with the filters being buggy.

Some picture styles are not using the full 0-255 range, so you need to change the thresholds for zebras.

Did small tweak to ALO code, thanks to Alex. Just in case it don't get into nightly anytime soon, best to have this version.
