Camera-specific Development / Re: Magic Lantern for 7D 2.0.3
« on: June 26, 2014, 10:34:30 PM »
Using an external display adds overhead to the overall processing load, I get less of these artifacts when i record at a lower resolution or frame rate. Until this is investigated further, the best performance can be obtained by setting global draw to "don't allow"  in the mlv menu, then using a monitor that has a cropmark feature to frame your shot accurately.
I'm not a monitor user but doesn't ML transfer files like you see it back in the screen itself so we can use the cropmarks internally?

You talking in RAW mode or in normal video mode (h.264) ?   In raw mode you need to enable the sound module.
Normal mode , since i'm not recording what could be different?

Speaking of audio meters I'm having the same issue , is there a way to have them when not recording?
Anyone tested the Audio remote shot yet , I don't if i should get the nightly #149 or #145 if tested?

Finally got my hands on the Magical lantern last night (last nightly build)
One word , Wonderful.
a big thank to whoever worked on this project it's absolutely brilliant.
Anyway , one of the things that got me into buying a 7D for magic lantern was the "Audio trigger shutter" , i couldn't find it in menus or subs and modules.
Is this feature missing for 7D or its name has changed?

Two conclusions possible:
No, it is not up to date.
Yes, it is up to date.

Well i'm finally on my way to get a second hand 7D and the guy i'm getting it from is another city which i'm traveling into 2 days from now
and i'll stay there for 2 days which means i don't really have much time.

I have two questions:

-Beside general tips for buying second hand camera body is there anything that i should be concerned about ML working properly?
like the firmware version? i heard it's not possible to downgrade.

-When i got the camera what do you guys suggest i install to get good amount of features while preventing the camera from having problems (Nightly builds , the one in website , etc)
other than a nature problem of 7d working with ML like a problem that only 7D has with it , is there?

If someone has more information i would really appreciate it.

Hardware and Accessories / Re: Affordable CF cards for 7D

Ahh, sucks mate. What country if I may ask? The 7D is just expensive compared to some other options, but yea it's very nice.
Haha :p for 1920 x 1080 raw 24p, you will need about 90 MB/s write speed.. I however have no experience with this.

More about this can be found here:;viewresults or

If you do want to be recording fullhd raw, you won't be able to use 8GB cards.. because those won't even hold 2 minutes of 1920 x 1080 24p raw. Yep it's that big :p

For photos.. as I said, the capacity will probably not be that much of a problem, and you will also not need the extreme write speeds.
If you want a recommendation.. In your case, I would go with one of the "Sandisk Extreme Pro" cards (64GB maybe). They will get you high enough write speeds, and about 12 minutes of raw 1920x1080 24p. If you can't spend that, just go with the extreme cheap ones until you can spend it ;\
Yeah it really does , although i'm too far away from America anyway (Iran)
brands like Transcend , Patriot and Kingston Are still options here but the Komputerbay i never heard it before ML in here.
Seems like i gotta say goodbye to a lens for a fat speedy memory card.
But Also wanted to ask what are the thoughts on lower Resolutions?
Like does 720p needs the half speed and half space of a 1080p file?

Hi there

If i were you i would've gone for the H4n and a better Mic or maybe two for different purposes.
at last the best way to decide is to see it for yourself.
YouTube has tons of videos about a good shotgun mic especially the one you're going for
just search it and spend some time watching the reviews.


General Help Q&A / Re: 550D with SanDisk 64Gb Ultra
« on: April 28, 2014, 05:12:11 PM »

I Believe Canon 550D does not support SDXC Cards (Extended Capacity) which means 32GB is the highest you can go.

Hardware and Accessories / Re: Affordable CF cards for 7D
« on: April 28, 2014, 04:32:13 PM »
If only used for pictures, low capacity is usually not that much of a problem. 8GB will still get you around 400 raw pictures. Those will start at around $ 15.
If you're taking video, especially raw video, where write speeds as well as capacity matter a lot more.. I would save up for something better :p in that case, you will be looking at around $ 50 minimum
Why silicon power and sandisk only btw?

If you want to go really cheap, this seems to be your best option
Komputerbay 16GB CF 300X
However, this seems a way better option in the longer term to me
Komputerbay 32GB CF 266x

Sorry to say I don't have any experience with the silicon power and sandisk ones.. I do own a sandisk SD card, which is fine.

Wondering why and how you got that 7D though :p
Thanks Ramon

I explained about the brands , sadly International shopping is not available in our country for now due to politics issues.
and about the 7D , i don't really understand your wonder
lots of people owns this beast and i picked it up as a second hand camera with a very good price.
but for now it's not with me and i'm using my 2years-old D5100 which is totally fine... ish
but of course ML is something else.

I will be doing Raw video but not quite sure how much speed does it need in FullHD or less (I couldn't find a topic for this matter)
and photos as well (more than video)
Kumputerbay seems to be a popular brand i heard it many times.

Hardware and Accessories / Affordable CF cards for 7D
« on: April 25, 2014, 10:52:32 PM »
Well i'm on tight budget here but maybe the problem is that i don't have access to that much of brands of CF's.
Silicon Power and SanDisk are only choices.
Sandisk is very pricey for me , i could only afford 8GB Extreme pro 600x (not sure)
And Silicon power 16GB 400x and 600x both were affordable.
Any experience?

At 11 seconds I see the Help menu and at the bottom I see;
Magic Lantern version : v2.3.NEXT.2014FEB19.7D203

I have Tragic Lantern running on my 7D and it has no Help menu.
Therefore I guess he is using an ML Nightly Build from Feb 19.

For what it is worth, I do not experiment with video therefore in *my* case there is no difference between ML and TL.
(why use TL instead of ML ? Well, just because I can. I switch back and forth between ML and TL for no logical reason)

I use a Meike MK-7D grip and have no problems at all using ML or TL.
i really appreciate it.

You have "heard" about several issues and missed to provide any information/link about them. So I ignore those issues until some substantial information comes with your concerns. This includes version info/time stamp about which build was used.

Magic Lantern doesn't replace Canon's menu and firmware. It is loaded on top of it, you can access Canon's menus all the time and you can always bypass ML at startup if you want to: Just press SET during startup.

Download latest nightly build and test it. It's always on your own risk, of course. And it is *not* bug free. (On the other hand: Do you have ever heard about a commonly used program *proved* to be bug free?)

Thanks Walter

You're probably right.

Can you confirm this?
Magic lantern Firmwares are the ones that tested by many cameras and the most stable.
Tragic Lantern Firmwares are the ones that users adjusting and developing them.
Nightly builds are the latest features as a firmware but just tested on 1 or more cameras.
Alpha firmwares are the ones that taken from nightly builds and it's tested by developers and some users and not quite there comparing to ML ver.

Are nightly builds as safe as alpha firmwares or if it's not how risky is it to look for?

Also is it possible to delete or uninstall them?

Hi there

which version is he using? ML , TL , Nightly builds or Alpha?

I would like to use magic lantern on my 7D but i had some concerns about whether it doesn't affect the original options if i would like to use them normally like custom functions settings.
and i heard about magic lantern having problems with grip and some bugs with it that i'm not sure it's fixed now or not.

Most useful options for me are Raw Video , Dual ISO , HDR video , Rack focus , Zebras , Focus peeking , Intervalometer and Audio shutter release.
Can i have them in a version like the one i attached?

Not a better photographer for sure, generally speaking it's about functions that let us do things easier and faster and even more accure.
i'm planning more on Video than photography
because i'm on low budget this thing will help me a lot
as i read about it.

by the way English is not my first language so it is possible on misunderstanding and not that good explanation. :)

I Know , But They started canon as a new thing too.
Why they can start to do for Nikon users too?

Nikon hacker was really simple it's not even 1/100 of Magic Lantern features and abilities.
that's why i'm Curious about these guys.
Nikon's UI or is protected or something?

I'm start to think of changing brand , but it'll be huge loss and loosing lots of experience.

I wonder why they don't start a project with Nikon's too?
Is it that hard with Nikon DSLR's or ML is a Fan of Canon's
I don't know.
