Magic Lantern, a firmware hack for Canon cameras - video tutorial

Hi friends, this video tutorial will show you how to install Magic Lantern on Canon cameras, it is a kind of firmware that brings a lot of features missing from the device and users need them, a useful hack.
Magic Lantern is developed by a group of enthusiasts who saw the huge potential of the Canon DSLR cameras, potential that Canon does give than more expensive models spoon in the CAU all available products.
I must say from the beginning that Magic Lantern goes than the Canon DSLRs, the complete list can be found on the official site Magic Lantern.
In principle, Magic Lantern is not a firmware, it is more of a hack that boots from the card and sticks to the ram memory from where it runs, it has nothing to do with the internal ROM where the original firmware is, which is why it is dangerous, Magic Lantern can be uninstalled once the card is formatted by pressing the “Q” key, the message “remove magic lantern” or “keep magic lantern” will appear on the screen, you will choose whether or not it remains after formatting.
Installation is very simple.
1. Format the card in the camera (low level format)
2. Download Magic Lantern
3. Unzip the contents of the archive in the root of the card
4. Put the camera in manual mode (M on the mode dial)
5. Insert the card into the camera and turn it on
6. Go to the menu and update your firmware version like in the tutorial.

Magic lantern provides a lot of settings that will make your night. You will find the settings all the time you have vista, settings that we encounter only much more expensive cameras.
Magic Lantern will talk about setting another occasion, I invite you to watch one another tutorial.

  1. I and I still 600D, and I heard the magic lantern but I never tried. From what I've observed in functions ui looks good but does not look good (not that I make claims but seems crowded and complicated at the same time) Anyway after this tutorial maybe I'll try it myself. Waiting tutorials and other functions most interesting of this firmware to convince me to give it a try

  2. View Product said

    I have a Canon 500D. I followed the steps in the tutorial and it says the folder can not be copied ML. Thank expect other advice.

    • Perhaps you did something right.
      I have a ML 500D with him over a year and everything was ok ...
      Unfortunately for 500D many functions are not supported but are more useful stuff anyway.

  3. Interesting I haven't heard of this magic flashlight, maybe I'll try it after viewing this tutorial… I have a 600D.

  4. Canon Compact For those who like the site is a firmware CHDK Wiki.
    There you can find firmware for most compacts from Canon. Inslalarea is about the same as in the tutorial above. On the site you can also find installation instructions.
    I tried it on a Canon Powershot A1300 and works, for example can take pictures in RAW format
    or PNG that not much you can do with compact-200 300 lei.

  5. Very cool.
    I thought there must be something. Really brings many video settings to where I was most interested. The experienced look forward to new features and look forward tutorials about ML.

  6. We decided to instales it after I saw that has the function intervalometer Basically saves me a lot of money that I was going to them on your remote control with this function. Besides it has a lot of other features that I have not put but still waiting to be discovered.

    Congratulations tutorial. I folosec approximately one Magic Lantern on Canon 550D smoothly. However, there would be some guidelines in addition to those mentioned in the video.

    First, you must ensure that the battery is charged, it is recommended over 50%. If you interrupt the process of firmware update, although very brief, may have problems.

    Meanwhile, you need a card fast enough 10 class video, especially if you choose to increase the bitrate. HDR video function requires more special postprocessing but as mentioned but it was mentioned in the tutorial.

  20. magic lantern tutorial e k. I read the tutorial I installed it and it works. I have a 600d canon. I don't know English (my elbows hurt). I saw a tutorial in en. with what he does on the video side, but I would like something about him (program) in Romanian. as for rocky says- take out the card on which the program is, put another one in the device and you're done. when he needs it, he inserts the card with the program… ..which is complicated. not to find we are looking for sticks to put them in wheels. I am waiting for you with a tutorial in ro. or with the translation of the menu in ro. Gratitude.

  21. Attention! in DEBUNG-shutter count: 8k = + 6744 1267, (between: and) are the numbers that are written on my canon 600d are how no. frames?. I saw this and I note no. what appeared then I took some pictures I counted them, I closed the unit, then turned it on. changed only no-middle-6744 exactly how many pictures I had done. your opinions.

  22. the remark above I omitted to say that it is his magic lantern menu

  23. Do you know if it works on 40D? I have not found.

    Congratulations for the tutorial… .I look forward to the next tutorial.HD FILMING .. 🙂
    Thanks!!!

  28. I tried it with a Canon 1100D, respecting all the rules above, but unfortunately does not work.
    Install the application and acts as the tutorial until the last screen would need to show the country that we successfully installed application. but instead it asks to restart the camera. Restart the camera and everything behaves as before without any other difference difference.
