Thanks to your help, we have covered all our funding needs for now.

Please consider donating to EFF for us, because they do a great job in defending your digital rights, including the right to run third party software on your own devices!

THIS IS DANGEROUS AND MIGHT DAMAGE YOUR CAMERA. NO WARRANTIES. NO GUARANTEES. DO NOT TAUNT. IF IT BREAKS, YOU GET TO KEEP BOTH PIECES.

Do not use this for production work: if you can't deal with a lost take or dropped frame or other problem, you shouldn't be running it!

Please review the FAQ. You have questions. It has answers.


Instructions

  • Very important: remove the battery after each test run. Sometimes the tasks are not properly shutdown when it enters power save mode, leading to the CPU to stay in a tight loop and run down your battery.
  • Copy the magiclantern.fir and magiclantern.cfg file to the root directory on the CF card
  • Select "Updated firmware" from the menu
  • Camera reboots directly into LiveView mode
  • Press Picture Style button once LiveView is displayed to bring up the Magic Lantern menu
    • Use the joystick to move between items.
    • Click the joystick to select items to toggle them.
    • The configuration is not saved between runs; edit the magiclantern.cfg file to change settings
    • Press Picture Style to exit the menu.
    • If Zebras are not turned on, the menu may not be cleared; press digital zoom or Menu to refresh the display
  • You must reload the firmware after every powersave event or card removal
