Magic Lantern Swag?
« on: June 16, 2012, 03:48:03 PM »
If other please leave a comment. Perhaps there are other cool ways to show the world how cool it is to have Magic Lantern hiding inside your camera.

There has been talk for ages about branding the logo or name on gear and I know that this is a touchy subject. There maybe copyrights issues or permission problems to overcome. Also how would the funds be distributed? But I think with emergence of international product production through small run manufactures like cafepress etc. there should be a way to get the idea afloat.

What do you say? Does it have merit? Or is it all a bit of needless hand waving?

I don't see anything wrong with that as long as it's crowd-founded.
From a legal point of view, we need to get in touch with whoever made the logo (or just contact Alex and see what's the licence on that)

also: camera strap, because mine it's almost gone

I like the camera strap idea, but it would obviously have to be something of pro quality, otherwise I'd rather not bet my 5d2 on it. I'd prefer a version with clips.

Well, i think it might be a good idea to make some cool t-shirt designs and make them downloadable. So anybody who wants to have on can go to the next t-shirt-prit-service and make one. This would be much easier than crowd funding.
i use a 500d 18-55mm and 75-300 mm photo/video

I initialy thought that an Open CC design would be usefull to spread the word, but that wouldn't benefit the development team that give us many of their hours (in hard work) for free.

To see better Magic Lantern releases, I think that some small proceeds could be returned to development AND show your support for the movement.

How about a badge or pin to put on my camera bag?  Bling-bling.

since it wouldnt allow me to do a multiple choice. I'd rock the camera strap AND t-shirt at the same time.

im a rebel like that.

I like the camera strap idea, too, but as said before, it should be a good one, an improvement to the present one. There are straps out there with a steel rope inside to prevent theft by cutting through the strap... something like that maybe..

A snap on camera strap would be great! It could have pockets for batteries/SD cards imbedded into it. Batteries could get a little chunky, but SD card holders in the strap is definitely doable.

Yay or nay for snap on + SD card slots? Frickin yay!

As nice as it would be to get swag up and running I think that, that time may be passing :( there are many new video cameras coming to market that exceed MLs features diluting it's profile and use. So it's just for us stallwarts. Perhaps a DIY advocacy would be suitable from here? Rather than a fundraising concept.
