Thanks, as I said PayPal donations are not possible. if there is trusted dude to handle them I don't mind (PM me).

Shipping from EU/US is quite expensive, eBay/Amazon aren't supported here. Best choice to me is buying and shipping from China if I didn't find the camera locally.

There is an option for people who chose PayPal but you need to do some research, the option is to buy a Crypto with PayPal (maybe on Coinbase, there are many other platforms if you know better one), I don't know what kind of fees you will face, also Crypocurrecny withdrawals fees can change from coin to coin and from platform to platform, so no idea what the best platform to exchange.


You can buy Crypto, in particular USDT coin which has fixed coin price (1 USDT = 1 USD) on Binance via P2P (person to person) Trading with zero fees from Binance, there are many payment methods available in P2P trading in Binance like Bank Transfer, Sepa and a lot more depending on your country. in P2P trading sellers can increase the price of USDT a little bit e.g they will sell 1 USDT for 1.02 USD, you can take a look into available offers on Binance (I am using USD as reference, you can select your local currency in P2P trading).

You to have to do KYC verification on Binance to be able to use P2P trading.

As I said for people who have chosen PayPal and can take a look into Crypto you need to make a little research or . . find a friendly friend who can help you with that ;).
I can offer some help/guidance if you chose Binance (PM me).

+1 on the donor list (added to the survey). I hadn't seen the posts about the impossibility of PayPal. Crypto would be fine too.

Option 2: I have a 100D that I'd be happy to lend for an extended time (say, 8 months), but the camera has been around the world with me, and I'd be keen to have it back one day (pure sentimentality). Depending on shipping and customs costs and timescales, this may be inviable. Depending on the expected costs, I'd be happy to pay outward and return shipping. Let me know, Bilal, if this sounds feasible.

Current donations from survey are total of 135 USD from six people, plus mine it's 165 USD.

@Jonneh
Where are you located ?

Unfortunately shipping to my country is complex, shipping directly from US/China to my country is banned (in this case we need to ship the item to another country then to my country, quite expensive from US, it's okay for China), shipping from EU starts with 70 USD up to 150 USD (might be higher), the price depending on which European country you are shipping from.

I don't have a problem with lending, but shipping is the main problem here, I don't know what other surprises I may face because I never tried shipping from EU/US, but my friends who tried told me it's complex and doesn't worth the trouble.


Collecting a small amount from each donor sounds like a better idea. I will make another try to run a PayPal account. If someone (from users/ML team) can run a PayPal account for this purpose, PM me.

Currently, cryptocurrency donations are accepted (PM me).

Donation sent as USDT, Bilal, which made the most sense. Here's hoping a suitable camera appears on the market soon and that you have the donations in hand when it does.

-Update: 80 USDT raised from two people Edit: we are almost half-way, 160 USDT raised.
+an equivalent to 50 USDT has been offered from EU, can someone help by receiving it and convert it to USDT? let me know please.

-Goal: ~343 USDT.
-Cryptocurrency donations are accepted (PM me).


I am definitely doing some marketing here :P

-Reminder: what you will get from this?

Check ZEEK's YT channel:
https://www.youtube.com/c/ZeekEOSZ/videos

Check masc's YT channel:
https://www.youtube.com/c/MaScVideo/videos

Exactly, take a look into EOS M videos and RAW video modes on EOS M:

EOS M, 700D and 100D share the same sensor (they produce same image quality). Currently EOS M and 700D have equivalent RAW video modes and considered as best choices in RAW video capabilities as entry level models which support ML, I am seeking to put 100D in the same field, and maintain it as long as I maintain my 700D.

-I am glad that I have created RAW video presets which considered very useful (and golden 8)) by many EOS M and 700D users. which are "4.5K/4.3K/4K/UHD 1x3" with real-time correct preview modes on 700D, the equivalent of "5K anamorphic frtp" modes on EOS M. 100D lacks these presets, I am seeking to bring them to 100D if you are interested.

Check my thread for 650D/700D and take a look about what I am trying to port to 100D:
https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=25784.0

-Indeed there is high chance of success for porting these presets and my build in general to 100D.
-There is no 100% guarantee for success, but there is a really high percentage for it (x5 Expanded preview already proved to work on 100D).

-Why I am doing this?
For fun, learning and maintaining ML project/old models at least a little :) . No I am not planning to do anything else with 100D except for doing ML things, I prefer my articulated LCD screen on my 700D beside I already have access to 250D which has the awesome Dual Pixel eye autofocus.

My offer to help a contributor who have 100D to port my build to 100D is still open, if a contributor managed to port my build to 100D before achieving total USDT goal, I will send you back your USDT donation.
