how easy is it to install magic lantern? i just got my t2i today (i’m 13, and was saving for a long time) and am a little afraid to install it, if i mess it up. what happens if i use a different card? thanks!

UncivilClown says:

I have downloaded magic lantern 0.2.2 and there is no turn off AGC on my update. PLEASE HELP!!!

buomr says:

Thank you, man!
Can it work on 600d?
Are there any new news on the recording time Video? 12 minutes or more?

Knoptop says:

yes it’s free. check out the website for full details.

TheAustinKyle says:

Is it free?

Starky3000 says:

You could put this on another one of your “Tech Talk” Episodes.

Starky3000 says:

If you go under “LiveV” and scroll down to “Cropmks(0/6) : OFF” Press once so it changes to “Cropmks(1/6) : CINESC02.BMP !” This creates crop marks on your screen as reference marks so you can frame your video and make it easier to crop in Post.

Knoptop says:

I’m not sure I know what that is?

Starky3000 says:

That’s me got this software on my camera. Works perfect, I keep mine in Cine Bar mode so it’s 21:9.

t0yo says:

Please make more videos about magiclantern!

mystarstudios says:

Looks like that Access monitor is more like $100 vs. $40…you got a deal.

MrDasjoerd says:

you dont need magic lantern to add a monitor right?

Knoptop says:

Hmm, not sure. You may want to check to see if “force hdmi-vga” is (as seen here 6:55 )

Pang Chee Peng says:

Hi, today i just test, i use usb-rca cable, but the external monitor is blank /no signal, wat problem is it? or Magic Lantern just support HDMI?

mp4podcastDOTcom says:

I never heard of anyone bricking their Canon DSLR with Magic Lantern.

MrKtmvideo says:

I’ve had magic lantern for a year and just updated my it’s all good.the news one the best.

Knoptop says:

The risk is there. But check out the site.. I don’t know if there’s any documented ‘bricks’ ~ but I could be wrong. Just be sure to follow the intructions carefully.

6DarkOne6 says:

i like it but im scare of a possible brick on my t2i, is the risk high??

mp4podcastDOTcom says:

How many HDR photos can you now take?

MediaUnlocked says:

Thanks for the shout out man. Nice channel

BIDBitTV100 says:

thanks for the info

Knoptop says:

yep, full list of features are on the wiki page (link in description)

Knoptop says:

cool thanks!

skinVISIBLE says:

Will this give us aperture control in video?

zimbloggy says:

i don’t know if you’ve realized this, but you can monitor audio through headphones without an external monitor. with just a couple of things from radioshack. you need an rca to headphone adapter plus a pair of couplers and use the usb-rca cable that comes with the camera. you need magic lantern, though, or else the camera lcd will turn off.

Starky3000 says:

sweet, just charging the battery first then update time 😀

BrotherBloat says:

that is just AWESOME! 😀

DjJuvan says:

@Knoptop Get yourself a miniUSB to Audio/video out cable. And then get a converter to 3.5mm audio plug. The camera should (i did test on EOS 550D) give an audio out directly to your earplugs… and without that extra display.

RedHandedRejects says:

Would be awesome!

Knoptop says:

Generally I deleted the files from the card. (don’t reformat the card) just delete them. Just to be sure everything gets updated. I may make a quick video tonight, showing how.

RedHandedRejects says:

Sounds good! Do I have to delete anything from off the card?

Knoptop says:

I’ve only used the monitor a few times (indoors) so far it’s worked nice. It’s not HD, but the quality allows to for pretty accurate focus. But I’m not sure how good it’d work outside yet. I tend to rely on it more as a playback screen when reviewing some scenes to the talent and crew. I’ll post more as I can get more time with it.

Knoptop says:

Yep, the wiki page will give you more details on the T3i status

Knoptop says:

if you’ve got MJ already running on the camera then to update is easy. Simply put your card into the computer, download the latest .zip and extract the files to the card (writing over the old stuff) and boom. updated.

RMTWGR says:

Man, hope this will work on the T3I. I was planning to pick up the T3I to use along with my vixia hg21, but I may just pick up a T2I instead.

BIDBitTV100 says:

Thanks for the information, pls tell me more on the Access HD External monitor, can i use it for film making, is the picture quality good, help pls, thanks

ASFonline says:

Um mm… Will this jive with T3i? I NEED that audio meter… I all but ruined an interview thanks to clipping!

mp4podcastDOTcom says:

The new ISO’s are worth it.

RedHandedRejects says:

Is there a tutorial on how to just update to the new version?

Knoptop says:

yeppers, check out the MJ wiki for more info!

Starky3000 says:

you any idea if this will work for Canon 60D?
