Considering Magic Lantern for 5D Mark III
« on: September 29, 2017, 08:00:57 PM »
Hi, I'm considering installing Magic Lantern on a Canon 5D Mark III. I know ML does not guarantee the safety of their plugin and I just wanted to get feedback recommendations from the community. What is the risk of this firmware destroying a Mark III? It's a company camera so I'm not in a position to take a real risk in either destroying the camera or having one that is not dependable for the production work. Thanks!

 I would not worry about it! you could also drop it and it may break too.
just make sure you read fist how to uninstall the magic lantern if you want to have it returned.

and if you stay with h264 its very dependable
if you go to raw you can with the wrong settings have a too high data rate and recording can stop.
so know what you do and enjoy
