DSLR's at a Wedding - most pro's use just that - DSLR's, as in Plural or two or more - that way you can get around the 1/2hr or upto 1 hour before overheating issues - and me I DON'T DO WEDDINGS  ;D - and I'll happily wait for the 650D ML release (probably the beta) - with the price of 650D's now (around £450), if you're going to be a pro, buy two and some nice glass - or organize  you shoots so that you can shoot in chunks of less than 30min - in my experience (I used to do wedding videos) most people don't want to listen to all of a hymn - so you can do first and last verses - anyway, now way off subject :-)

T4i/650D is perfect for wedding videos, really looking forward to a stable ML!
I use T4i/650D and 600D (ML) for the video, I Wedding operator!

I just read this WHOLE THREAD front to back (as it has been a while since I have kept up with where we are) and I'm more lost than I was before I read it! All this talk about all these features I don't understand, boot flag this and dumping that...I'm LOST! The features I DO need and DO understand are audio meters in video mode (why Canon didn't include this is beyond me), zebras, and longer recording times because quite frankly, 29:59 doesn't cut it for a wedding videographer like myself. Does anybody have any enlightening advice or do I need to read that "answers" thread I read about somewhere? I have been longing for ML since I bought my camera in August.
Another good place to look is YouTube.  There are quite a few videos that show how to install and others that go over different features with examples.  I've found them very helpful.

Overheating? I haven't been able to successfully  overheat 6D or 600D. The most I got was was temp warning on a 90F+ day shooting outside with no AC. 650D shouldn't be different. The older cameras tended to have overheating problems like 550D/5dII (prob old versions). You can also turn on movie restart and that has maybe a couple of seconds gap. 650D being a digic V camera, that gap is a little shorter.

What will happen though is your battery will go dead fairly quickly from LV being on and card cranking. Plug in or have lots of spares.

Having done a few weddings on stills only, I'd use the DSLR to do the shots and then a cheaper camera to record video. You can't do both on one camera and you aren't going to be running around taking videos or they'll be a shaky mess.

Just picked up a Canon X6i (650D) The other day. I had a GH2 and wanted to try something different. Any status on the ML for it? Beta? I looked through the forum and didn't really see anything recent. I am looking to increase the bitrate on the video and have All I-frames. Don't know if that is what you guys plan to do. Let me know if you need donations.

After having just started using and getting used to Magic Lantern on my 5d2 and t3i, now that I just picked up a t4i I feel so paralyzed without it! Or more accurately, I feel like I am shooting blindfolded without peaking, zebras, the zoom in box while shooting, etc. etc.!

On today's shoot I used the t3i on time lapse and the t4i was the primary camera due to 60fps for slow motion. So... Super bummed it's not ported yet!

Can't wait for it to be finished :)

Don't know if it's obsolete or not: Tried to use focus bracketing with pre-alpha. Doesn't work for me, giving me focus error message.
Side effect: Wasn't able to use focus in liveview thereafter.
- Started camera with ML disabled (Set button pressed): Doesn't work either
- Started camera with card without pre-alpha ML installed: Nope, won't run
- Deleted all camera settings + Fn: Works fine.

Well, outdoor macro season is near and sometimes a camera with vari-angle screen will come handy. ;-)
On the other side: 7D will do the job too and a little yoga acrobatic is supposed to be healthy ...
Thank you all for all your efforts!

Ciao, Walter

I think I have a solid feature set for Alpha 1 right now :)
Looks like someone is going to have fun with his camera this week-end (or at least I hope so :P)

Hi Guys,

Not only am i new to the ML forum but also new to the wonderful world of DSLR's as i've just placed my order for a Canon 650D (my first "proper" camera)

I chose the camera after a recommendation from a friend who also raved about ML so i decided to check this forum out.

Looks like it's a very exciting time in the ML universe right now so keep up the sterling work and i look forward to the finished release for the 650D.

Looks like I have some good news for my 650d.  Looking forward to be able to make a contribution to this project again.

Kudos.

I have a T2i and a T4i, I've actually fallen back to using my T2i due to it's Magic Lantern support.  We were even chroma keying in an ambulance last night and the waveform monitor was invaluable.  It would be nice to get my T4i in action for shoots as well however so I hope progress goes well.  Particularly as I can't up the bitrate over 1.2x on most memory cards on my my T2i, and I'm hoping the Digic5 + UHS-I of the T4i support will let me get that higher. :)

I have T2i and T3i both running ML. Thrilled to hear it is coming for my T4i as well. Thank you so much for the effort.

Excellent to hear this.  Have had a pretty ridiculous week, but it's neither here nor there!

I'd stopped checking every day and maybe every 2 days or so, and today I see this.  Beautiful.

Looking forward to getting that Alpha 1 on there.  Great work kids.  Really impressive.

Hopefully I'm playing with it in the next few days.
