Hi Guys,

Honestly I'm fairly noob with ML. I've been using it for about a year now on my 7D with alpha 2 but I think it's due for the latest build.

Trouble is I just can't figure out where to start looking for the latest build.

I have looked through the forums and there are many threads but it is just confusing me between all the nightlies and fairly stable releases. I'm not 100% comfortable with the nightlies due to the possibility of bricking the camera.

Can someone please either link me to a specific spot or post it here the newest and most relatively stable/reputable release?

Thanks heaps



For now it's not possible to have ML with the news functions in your 7D but i think soon will be possible.


So, for the time there is no official ML build with RAW-Video support? I am very confused as I saw many people posting RAW videos with their 7D on youtube...

There was a ML version and hopefully there will be one in the nearer future. Today there is Tragic Lantern running on 7D.
EDIT: Well, that was fast ...

With RAW-Video support?

After the recent merge you have stable + experimental builds now... both should have mlv_rec.. why don't they?
