Well, my question was actually about APSC-sensor based DSLRs.  Can a speed booster turn them into full-frame cameras when operating in Life View with full-frame lenses?  Do such speed boosters exist and if yes, does anyone on this forum have any experience with them?

Actually I already made a thread about it. I have a speedboaster, an extra 50D and some ideas about how it can be done, just haven't got to it yet.

Please don't quote out of context. Please link to quotes you are using.

This quote was an answer to reply #49 in this thread and reply #49 links to outdated User Guide found under -> Top of page -> User Guide -> User Guide.

There was no link to Redrock's "User Guide" post.

I apologize for misrepresenting your quote. But then I don't understand. Why did the person ask about another guide in a guide thread named "User Guide thread for the latest nightlies (Help Needed)"? And why would you give such reply in that very thread? Was it just so that it was/is not complete?

EDIT: Nevermind, I realize that you now are mainly focused on choice nr 1 above. I still think there are presentation issues to be addressed, but everything in its own time. Guess I should create a new thread for my specific purpose.

I will just reply myself and add some more questions.

How up to date and usable is the The sticky to end all stickies?
How up to date and usable is the German guide which also have been refereed to in this thread?
How up to date and usable is Redrocks guide since Walter writes "Linked User Guide covers outdated "stable" v2.3. There is no user guide for nightly builds available." in its last post from 2017?
Did I miss any relevant threads/sources?

I am currently in the process of documenting my experience as a first time user coming to the site (which in some ways are not far from the truth). This experience is based on two goals.

1. I have a Canon camera (where there already is ML development) and I want to find out what I can do with it, how to do that, what functions are yet to be implemented for my model and how I can help to develop them (as well as help ML community in general).

2. I heard about Magic Lantern and want to buy a Canon camera in order to use it. I am looking for the different functions (including understanding what they are and if I need/want them) supported by the different models (including resolution, bit depth support etc.) Since I do not need a production camera instantly I am also interested in what functions are possible coming to the different cameras and what would be required for that to happen.

With these two goals I am trying to build a user trajectory and understand how we might make it easier for the user. This of course needs to be coupled with the practical part of keeping development moving while updating information in an easy manner.

Is there more relevant material other than Redrocks guide and the pages with features, builds etc

Support for RT flash enhancements (5 groups, ...)
Price: Below 200€ in mint condition

Size (if your hands are not that small and especially with big/heavy lenses)
Buttons missing, no dial on back -> ergonomics ...
Battery capacity is a bad joke
AF not state-of-the-art with non-STM lenses

YMMV. I have a little problem seeing it as upgrade. More of a replacement: If you're looking for a smaller cam and don't mind changing/recharging batteries a lot ...

Thank you. What about video capability and features?  2520x1080 resolution at 12 bit lossless and audio seems better than the 50D right? Any other technical specs worth considering?

Would you say that the 100D is a good upgrade from the 50D? Pros and cons?


I was giving this a lot of thought for around a year ago, unfortunately I did not write it down but I still remember some of the main issues I was contemplating. My interest in the topic i still here and I would like to contribute if I can.

First of all (notwithstanding the fact that I do not understand all technical references) it seems that there are many approaches taken in this thread. Both thoughts about technical implementation and artistic presentation. I would suggest that the first step is to define what functions we are trying to fulfill. 

1- Is it just a database of some sort that can be filled with up to date guides for the different functions (including specifics for different cameras?)?
2- Is it an easy to understand overview and introduction to different functions for new and old users (that could of course be feed/linked to the mentioned database)?
3- Is it a greater tool that does not only make it easy to get an overview of what functions are available through Magic Lantern and how to use them on different cameras, but also if and how a newcomer could help develop the functions for supported and unsupported cameras?

Other functions to be specified is how easy it should be by whom to update the information, how easy it should be to see if the information is up to date and how much development is needed before a camera can be expected to have support implemented? I understand the last one is not an exact science, but could be simplified.

Different choices give different directions for implementation. For example, if choice 1 or 2 is chosen then it makes sense to filter the information by model, but if 3 is chosen you want people to see and be engaged with the functions that are currently not supported by their camera model.  EDIT! I realized that this is not necessary the case, will expand in next post.

I will try to remember the system (presentation wise) I had in mind when I was thinking about this before and come back with a suggestion. Feel free to suggest other functions that you think needs to be considered and or comment on the text above.


Sounds good , In the mean time I would suggest familiarize yourself with this thread , 10-12bit thread and of course the  iso-research source code. (That's where I started from)
You will need a developing environment -- I use a VM (VirtualBox) on Window7 Pro with a preconfigured magic lantern clone of Ubuntu ready to compile ML . Download links for clone of Ubuntu  here
You can run the VM under Mac or Windows just get the correct version for your OS , if you feel adventurous you can setup your own environment @dfort has make some tutorial here and here
You need to be very comfortable with compiling , merging , update source with "HG" etc. ..... I work with a VM because it's faster & easier to get up and running in less then 30 mins .

Thanks for the recommendations, hopefully will make me helpful a bit faster.

Ok --So I decided to forge ahead after urging from some forum members and help from a1ex.
So to get up to speed read the posts below to those members who are following the development , should help explain where I am in all this.
Basically I trying to get back to the 3584x1068 raw buffer I had working here
Stay tuned  :)

Great to hear. As I said, I will be helping as much as I can from September onward.

I really want to get this going, especially for the 50D. As soon as I have fished my thesis I hope to be able to help. Even would like to start a Magic Lantern club in Stockholm. That would be in September though. Please dont give up. I am sure that more people would like to help. I am willing to put in time for this for sure.

Is there another way to get ahold of the developer of DSLR controller because he's not responding to any of my PM's.

It worked fine on iPad Mini Retina with ios 7 and it hasn't been updated for ios 8 as of yet. I can't downgrade back to ios 7 without A SAVED SHSH blob. Oops!

Shame on me I know!

Hi DeafEyeJedi.
Sorry if I bring up an old thread. Did you ever get a hold of him? He is actively posting on the DSLR controller thread at XDA

Also, do you know anything about the possibility of using it during Raw recording as mentioned by 1%?


Hope this thread is still alive. In thread referenced by DFM, ( 1% claims that it is possible to record raw during USB output on 6D and 50D when bypassing (or blocking) ML screen resizing. However it is unclear whether this has to be done in the code or if it is something that can be done in existing ML versions. It would be exellent if someone could spread some light on this question.

Great response. I think there are some (not many) that would not mind learning enough to actually be able to help. Since there are relatively few that are working at the moment (not sure how many) I guess every new developer is greatly appreciated (although it has to be weighted against the time it takes from current developers to help). Still busy with my studies, but would be great to make it easier for people to get going. I know there are other threads also giving advice on what you can do to help like; and maybe (seems it has not been active for a long time).

How much time would you say is necessary to put down in order to learn from scratch dimilligan? I would imagine at least a couple of hundreds of hours.

Hi. I admit I havent read through the whole thread, so forgive me if I missed it, but could this work on the 50D? Since I understand it has similarities with the 5D2.

Some time ago I played around with an dual iso video branch, that is supposed to work on the 50D and the 5D Mark II. I don't know why but it does not work on my 50D so far.

The good news is, I am able to record dual iso RAW video by changing the CMOS[0] manually to a value of 8, 18 or 28. (See also my post in the dual iso for 5D2 thread

Here you can find a MLV of an 50D dual iso RAW video and a dual iso DNG file that was created by MLVFS.

Can anyone help us to put these things together? It seams simple to get dual iso RAW video working even on the good old 50D.

This is awesome. What is needed? What can we do to get this fixed?

Hi guys. I wonder if anyone know how to bypass the screen resizing to make it possible to use windows tablets as field monitors with EOSView?

"On 6D it works in photo and movie, same on 50D I think (just need to block LV resize when USB connected). 6D it does 30 or 24fps so you could in theory record it. I'm actually going to try monitoring over USB with my GPS/Tablet thing and my phone. I haven't tried recording yet but just turning on raw is fine."

"On 50D I still had raw + usb at the same time.. just had to bypass the screen resizing."  /1%, Developer, Hero Member

Hi everyone.

I haven't played around with the time laps functions of ML yet but I thought tomorrow nights (27/28 of September 2015, would be a good push to get started. I will read up a lot, but since its short on time I also thought I would ask if you have any specific recommendations for a lunar eclipse.

I am looking for recommendations for settings, but also step by step guides to use to get started. Maybe a dedicated website you know about?

I also wonder what your experiences is with battery life and so on. The moon will rise 19:10 local time, the eclipse will start 02:11, become total at 04:11, reach its maximum at 04:47, end total at 05:23 and end at 06:27. How would you manage this battery wise? I have a battery grip and can of course change batteries during if that works and is necessary. I have plenty of batteries to change with. How would you manage this setting wise? How long interval and so forth.

Any thoughts on how to successfully capture the whole event, or at least from 02:11 to 06:27 would be appreciated.

I know it has been asked before but, will there be dng support? What priority is it on your list?

Wanted to get dngs to use in davinci resolve. I also have a Canon 50D as you. What program do you edit and grade in and how does your workflow look like?

Thanks for some great work.

Will try to fix some 50d sample files, but might have to wait until end of the month.

raw2cdng 1.7.4 does not work for me out of the box. Did work in windows 8 compatibility mode though.

Yes its RAW. Ah, then I understand :). Looking forward to that and CDNG output :). Keep up the great work.

When I try to open a video made up of several *R.00 (R.01, R.02 and so forth) I get the Runtime error 7 out of memory message. I have 8 gig of ram, all be it on a Core M-5Y10 processor laptop without dedicated graphic card. All single file videos seem to work. Using a 50D.

The same video plays well in MLRawViewer. Any suggestion?

Thanks to Licaon_Kter who recommended the install on this link Seem to have solved my problem.

I recommend this thread for future discussion on the topic of Raw converters and Windows 10.
