Magic Lantern

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just read a article on lifehacker about Magic Lantern.
I am wondering how many ppl on OCN "install" magic lantern.
Is it better or worse??

I know it provide more features than the stock one and wanna try it.

if you are trying to use a DSLR to fulfill your video needs magic lantern is for many a must. but by no means a guaranteed way to make your video better. it will only help make video easier.

it truly comes down to what camera you have and what you need to be able to do. for a panasonic GH2, magic lantern makes incredibly poor quality video much better with the ability to shoot at a much higher bitrate. but the doesnt not mean the overall quality will be superior as you will still have slightly less dynamic range and still have that 2X crop factor.

honestly magic lantern has been around for a while now but i will say its a great tool. for almost all purposes its not permanent replacement to the firmware on your camera. you have to like install it every time you use it which makes it great in case you dont always need it.

Had some neat stuff on the 50D when I owned it. Worth a shot, easy to install and remove if you need to.

yea i think there really is no excuse for not trying it since if you dont like it all you dont have to go through any complicated process of uninstalling it

if you have any questions about it you can find tons of stuff on youtube but if not youre welcome to ask here but im pretty sure your answers for something like that are better answered by watching a video of someone explaining it rather than us explaining it through text

I have a question.
It said when you "uninstall" it, you still left with the modified bootloader, or whatever you call it in camera.
Can you remove that too??

Yeah, you just format the card.
