Camera-specific Development / Re: EOS M5 - 80D in your "pocket"
« on: October 29, 2016, 01:40:12 AM »
Only ML can save this brick :)
Panasonic answered with G80: 5-Axis in body stab, 4k, 422 internal recording. End of story.

Not really. That's a s35 APS-C camera, not a small chip m43s camera (and a speedbooster is not in the equation for this price bracket, and it doesn't save the poor 800+ ISO performance.)

It also has the only working AF system in the world. So will get many shots all around the world the g80 simply cannot.

A lot of us, both experienced filmmakers and hobbyiests alike, that would take good looking 1080p video over 4K video and pull focus manually.

The m5 24mp APS-C chip has a LOT more DR than the m43s 16mp chip. And video at 6400 ISO is equivalent to 1600 on the GH4. So in video you enjoy at least 2 stops of lowlight performance and in still 2 stops of DR, more resolution and better AF.

Plus, Panasonic over-sharpened 4k video will always look like panasonic over-sharpened 4K video, and Canon organic motion and colour will always look like organic motion and colours.

G80 is a GREAT camera. But I'd never use one without a SB as I despise the m43s 2.3x crop that made me sell the GH4, just cannot accept it as a filmmaker in aesthetic, it just lacks that LIFE. A Metabones EF SB with vintage soft M42 glass makes the magic appear, but too much money, too many adapters. G80 is a Great camera but not ULTIMATELY ''better' than an M5 that we still haven't handeled how the damn thing shoots and plays with the photographer/videographer.

I have 7D and EOS M - both with ML installed, sure. Great addon to Canon.

Friend of mine ask me about video crop mode ability on his 1100D. I tell him to look into ML "Video" menu and enable Video Crop Mode in it. But he give me answer "I havnt this item in menu".

So, want to ask here. Have 1100D ability to write mp4 at crop video mode? As I know, current 1100D ML build havnt RAW video ability in. Crop mode also off?

No crop mode for 1100D.

Shooting raw, the crop function works. However, the 1100D is basically unusable for RAW video after too much time tying (too slow card slot and very low resolution with lots of bugs)

Short answer no.

I hope someone is still interested in this little large-pixeled APS-C camera.

The 1100D does not have any way to input audio through an external microphone. What are you refering to?

Did this ever work? When exactly? (which builds?)

Formatting in-camera always worked no problem with ML. Now constantly freezes at "writing bootflags".  Not sure exactly when the issue began but I found it in the latest couple of nightly builds.

In the latest builds, I am not able to format the memory cards in-camera anymore. When done, the magic lantern restoration process freezes at "writing bootflags", and you have to remove the battery, lose magic lantern until installing the fir. File and upgrading the firmware again.

I am currently trying to install Magic Lantern onto my Cannon Rebel T3i. I have formated the memory card and put the downloaded files onto them. When I went to update the firmware it says loading. It has been loading for at least 10 minutes now. Do you guys know what the problem might be?



Did you install the t3i version? Take notice all the talk and files throughout this thread is about the T3, not the T3i.

Will this bug get a fix ? That would be so awesome as I don't have other lenses  :(.

Confirmed. Doesn't work with either the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 III or 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II.

I actually love the kit lens as an 18mm f/3.5 wide angle prime. It's the only wide angle option at that budget.

You can still use it. It's actually not that much of a problem as I use it wide-open all the time anyway and adjust exposure with ISO and Shutter angle and Variable ND.

It's a bug available only while using zoom lenses[citation needed]. It will work fine on a fixed-focal length lens.

Will for me aperture control works perfectly with:
-Canon 50mm F/1.8 II
-Canon 85mm F/1.8
-Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 APO zoom
-Sigma 10-20mm F4.5-5.6 zoom

Doesn't work with:
-Canon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 III non-IS

I'll get the newer regular IS II (non stm) version tomorrow so we'll see how it does with that one.

This is heavily compressed for the web and the difference is even much bigger and artefact-free but here:

H.264 720p

Raw 540p

The image is taking a HUGE leap on the 1100D, much much more detail, extremely fine noise structure, and of course very thick colour palette (14 bit) for grading to the point of being able to change WB in post!

Works very well with Fast cards at that resolution,


Another low-light test:

H.264 at 6400 ISO 

Raw at 6400 ISO (@540p)

As you can see, much higher detail, finer grain structure, and more accurate color palette

From my test, the 1100D's low pixel count at 12, with large APS-C sensor, gives it an edge over the 600/700D in terms of low-light.

I got the RAW video working at 960*500@23.976  continuously with a Sandisk Extreme 45 MB/s. Thanks a lot!

How do you make it work? I downloaded the latest build and there's no Raw module... Would love to try it and help developing this

you guys are awesome! breeding life into a dead camera

-Just downloaded latest build and for some reason Focus peaking and Magic zoom both are greatly improved! Thanks!

Feature request: would it be possible to assign buttons to change the exposure settings without opening the menu? Like 550/600/60Ds.

Up and down for ISO, dial for shutter, AV button + dial for aperture, that would be killer!

In the first nightly build I remember we had the option to set Exp. Override to ON in movie mode while leaving it OFF for photo mode. It really is a pain having to turn it manually everytime I use Live view for taking pictures. Could that be implemented again? Thank you.

Yes the contrast and brightness features don't work since first build ever made (colors shift just like previous post) Though Digic Peaking works in the "slightly sharper" setting, and Saturation works in all settings.

We are currently on the production phase of a short film, and just wanted to say that without you guys, this wouldn't have been possible. Manual exposure control brought life into our 3 1100D bodies available. So again, thank you! (Little Donation left- wish I could give more however)

Thank you. it truly freaked me out because I have a shoot tomorrow and I wouldn't be able to work with a camera freezing every couple if minutes! Good news is I downloaded an old build (4-feb) and the problem is gone. Thabks again.

With latest build(s), the camera freezes a lot, more than ever, and the only way around it is to take the battery out. Should I go for older builds?

How does this work > raw video and raw data in live view?

can i make timelapse without shutter?


Yes, when the raw function is developed, you will be able to combine it with FPS override and create raw timelapse (at 640p only I believe).
Anyway you can do that now but without having raw, just use the FPS override function and you can go down to 0.2 fps= frame each five seconds, with a five second shutter too if you want. But the results are of course 1280/720 frames, which I found very sufficient quality for video.
(PS: cool tip, use 35fps in FPS override and it gives quite good slowmotion when rendered to 24p!)

Why does Magic Zoom keep flickering when activated? It's an awesome feature but I can't use it due to that flicker. Too distracting :S

I just downloaded and started using ML on my new 1100D. I have one thing to say, THIS IS FREAKING BRILLIANT! It's almost too good to be true (not to mention free)!
I now have full manual control over video, ISO, Shutter speed and aperture. (which wasn't in my wildest dreams for the 1100d)
I can shoot at 24fps with framerate override and even do timelapse at less than 1 fps without wearing out the shutter.
HDR video is absolutely incredible.
Other small things like rack focus, magic zoom, histogram, peeking and zebras are very helpful and easy to use, just like on my old professional camcorders.
I just can't say how grateful I am to you guys at ML and I think you should start charging for this. It's only your right.

I'd be glad to help with funding or testing to help the development.

Copying the files through a USB cable (with the card in the camera) will probably never work, since the PC uses certain protocols to communicate with the camera, which exclude strange file transfers.

As for copying the files via a card reader, make sure you don't have the LOCK switch enabled on the card, as it might distrupt file handling.

If this doesn't work either, try copying some normal files to and from the card (jpegs, MOVs).

If this still doesn't work, try formatting the card (I would suggest using SD Formatter if you've never formatted the card from Windows

It has to work at some point.

Thank you a lot. The SD formatter worked and I copied the files to the card.
Thank you again.

The nightly builds are on the first page ( They work now.

However, since you've never had ML installed, you'll need to find a working .fir to "initialize" the first ML boot-up. (the .fir only tells the camera to search for the ML files from now on)
One can be found here

So, in conclusion, get the files from the first link, extract the zip to the card (root directory) and copy the .fir file from the 2nd link into the root directory of the card.

Good luck!

Thank you, Sir. Very helpful.
But I faced a strange problem when trying to copy the files to the root of the SD card. The card wouldn't let me copy anything onto it, and gives me a message saying "you don't have permission to perform this action".

I tried putting the SD card straight into the computer's card reader, and tried an external card reader, and also tried accessing the card through the USB cable with the card inside the camera.

I am using windows 7. Is there anything I can do to be able to copy the ML files to the card?

I am a complete ignorant of anything concerning Magiclantern and everything discussed in this thread.
I just want to download Magiclantern on my 1100d for the intervalometer function (I live in Egypt  and can't find a physical intervalometer device so Magiclantern is my only chance of timelapse.)
So is there a version I can download that would work on my 1100d?

P.S: I am aware of the danger and know there isn't an official version for the 1100d.
