We have a 5D3 now and start on that since the 650D/t4i requires a firmware update to get started.
nonsense :)
I should be getting my EOS M within the next week, and I plan to have ML started on that well before canon releases a firmware update.


plan:
- use 5d3 dump (both cameras have Digic5) to map the bootloader functions for reading / writing the bootflag (like the method I had to use for the 5dc).
- blindly find the matching functions in the EOS M bootloader (all i need to do is find the LED address [brute force method]).
- check a few lines near cstart and verify that the boot code is identical to the 5d3 (expecting it to be).
- apply boot code to EOS M like it's done on the 5d3


It's like a challenge / game for me :)

The Canon Eos 1Dx would be fine with ML

the 1dx is out of reach for 90% of ml users due to its price

650D

If the 5D MkIII works on the same processor, I hope the progress on the Mk III helps progress on the 650D.

My buddy / photography student, who was envious of my 500D, just acquired an 1100D at a great price. He would love to get "The Hack" running on it :)

In my humble opinion, one that is picking up dust on the shelf of our friend b4rt... 650D

I think there are many users who have 350D, 400D, 450D and 40D.
This equipment has been discontinued but are still in the drawers of many millions of Canon customers.
Over time these became obsolete equipment. Many of its users would like to use them to make their first tests with ML. On the other hand, might serve to improve the potential of its old cameras. In many cases, they could use them to perform some types of photography that do not allow your new equipment. Thus they avoided damaging your most valuable equipment. Because they are equipment with a lower cost, it is normal that there are many. By supporting these models would benefit a greater number of users.
Developers to work on these models can also acquire useful knowledge to support the latest and most advanced models.

+1

I own a 40D and would love to see ML running on it.

Maybe a little rude to come on here and suggest, but I'd love to see some ML guys jumping onboard the Sony NEX 5n - being capable of 60p 1080, there is talk and wishes for 120fps 720p... 

A hacker has just cracked into the sony encryption and posted an unpacker yesterday:-

this is huge news.  It took a lot of donations for a few different cameras to be bought but Someone1.00 has finally done it:)

Wait for a week - if Sony doesn't say anything, that's good news ;)

hint: PS3

Well, they didn't actually produce anything useful *yet*. It will probably take more than a week

I don't think this will impact on sony profits, if anything It might go towards boosting their consumer imaging division.  in which case I doubt they will bother taking any action.  wasn't the ps3 issue down to pirated games?  assuming someone created a software patch allowing overclocking of the ps3 I imagine it wouldn't have been such an issue.  same thing with the cameras. 

Then again, with their consumer approach, releasing a replacement model every year they probably don't wish to have their older models remaining competitive against the newer models.  I'd like it if it forced them into a way of working where the model released 1 year before wasnt just blatantly disregarded in favour of selling a gimmic filled replacement at double the price of the last.  Ie.  I can still buy a 550D from a official retailer (3 years after its release) and it is still relevant and compatible with new accessories.  Canon may release an update  once a year but this is the point -Canon's new releases are additions to the range, rather than complete replacements as with Sony's release structure.
