this guy is awesome! he really helped me via email!

David Penn says:

If you download Magic lantern you should at least donate a dollar per download. To support all of the hours dedicated towards making it possible.

Chad Sageser says:

Great video, Thanks a bunch saving me a ton of time with my 5D II.

7SERIESfilm says:

I don't have #1 and #2 on my canon t3i

Matt Miklas says:

When doing timelapse, does ML give you a little preview movie using the TL frames that you can view in-camera before you download the files? Thanks for this vid, too.

BenMorrisWA says:

would i be safe with the beta on the 70d

Tonahuac Theonewhocarriesthelight says:

Too many bugs on 70D, it crashes too much.

Levi Brinkerhoff says:

Thank you for the video! I just installed ML on my t5i and your videos were the first ones I checked out to learn how to use it. I do have a question though, ML is saying that my camera is 49*C after about 20 minutes of shooting. What temperatures should start having me concerned? Thanks!

Matt Kid Wonder says:

Is there an Alpha build for the 700d? Because I followed your tutorial on how to install ML and I downloaded the Nightly build. Its working perfectly though so no worries. Just want to know how much of a risk I took lol

tclarke971 says:

Great tips. Thanks for all your help.

Kizzay says:

Does the magic lantern also works on the Canon 750d? Can't find any information on the internet if it works on this camera..

MrDardo Films says:

Hollywood4Fun says:

I would love to hear your thoughts on the latest build of ML for Dec 2015.

Vicky Boboma says:

what about canon 100d ?

Daniel Asadi says:

Is Magic lantern works with Canon 7D mark ii too?

Leo Loyola says:

How about for pictures

Amodh Naik says:

where is that battery percentage option? i only got the graphical one, it isn't showing specific percentage.

David C says:

lets say you run out of space on the cf card for pictures . You need to changed your card. Would the magic lantern still works??

Jasper Toeli says:

great video! how do show battery% in live view?

Peter Richey says:

looks like there is nothing in Magic Lantern I need. Thanks!
