Magic Lantern
=============
If you are not comfortable with this, stop reading and delete the
software before you are tempted to try running it on your camera.
Magic Lantern (ML) is a software enhancement that offers increased
functionality to the excellent Canon DSLR cameras. It's an open
framework, licensed under GPL, for developing extensions to the
official firmware.
Please read the user guide carefully before installing this software.
Magic Lantern is not a "hack", or a modified firmware, it is an
independent program that runs alongside Canon's own software. Each
time you start your camera, Magic Lantern is loaded from your memory
card. Our only modification was to enable the ability to run software
from the memory card.
To repeat this important point:
***************************************************
* *
* THIS IS DANGEROUS AND MIGHT DAMAGE YOUR CAMERA. *
* IF IT BREAKS, YOU GET TO KEEP BOTH PIECES. *
* *
***************************************************
IMPORTANT NOTES
* If you have a bootable CF/SD card and have the DISKBOOT flag
set in the camera (which the installer does), and you do not
have an AUTOEXEC.BIN file on the card the camera WILL NOT BOOT.
It will hang and not wake up until the battery is removed.
* If you encounter a "locked up" camera, quickly remove the battery.
Otherwise the ARM might be in a tight-loop and get very hot, very quickly.
Your battery will run down and your LCD might show some discoloration.
* When in doubt, remove the battery and reboot.
* And, remember that this software can damage or destroy your camera.
ML is being developed by photo and video enthusiasts, adding
functionality such as: HDR images and video, timelapse, motion
detection, focus assist tools, manual audio controls much more.
