Sounds interesting.  But I have a dumb question (never used ML before).  Where is the link to the actual firmware file for the DR "upgrade"?

ML's download site has the latest 7D firmware from Dec. 2012.  I read the post and checked the .pdf... didn't see anything or links to the file in there.

The ML team deserves our support. They are brilliant, and bringing really useful features to Canon users!

For the photography users out there, I highly suggest installing ML not just for this new DR feature, but to have ETTR and RAW histogram/zebras.

You'll probably have to wait until someone releases a build for the forum, keep an eye out on the New Ports forum.

Until a fully featured ML version is compiled and distributed for 5D3 (with 1.2.1 firmware) it is purely theoretical...
So you mean to tell me that this isn't practical without being able to use it with 1.2.1 firmware?
Well I must say as a 1.1.3 user, I appreciate and make use of their hard work on a day to day basis. So I could care less about being able to record through hdmi a horrible 1080 picture on another $800 device that is sold seperately.
Relax! I meant that it is not available yet (irrespective of firmware level)

Wow, talk about keeping that 7D alive!

Just when I sold mine expecting Mk II next year...

if This claim made by ML it's doable and won't damage anything in the cameras in the future, makes me wonder if Canon is doing only half the work or if they are not investing in the best people.

Well you can always go back and forth between the firmware versions. It is more work though.

I wonder what firmware version of the 7D they are testing on...

You have to build it yourself.
Here is the code: https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/commits/all

If that is too much for you. Here is a link of it already built. Built by the magic lanterns forum member 'Lourenco'

The second link is for the 5D3 files

Seriously.... why doesn't Canon Hire Alex and his team....  Way back when I was done with a 350d and kit lens, I was not system dependant... I could have gone Nikon or Canon... ML brought me to the Canon camp. How many 5D2 users have stayed with Canon due to ML... it's amazing how ML has helped Canon.
+1 here.  ML made me choice Canon.  I have supported ML for a while and glad I did that.

My guess is neither: I think they want people who would like these capabilities to spring for their higher end, video-centric cameras instead of buying a much cheaper DSLR.

Awesome work, Magic Lantern Team.

Great job ML.

But it´s a shame that Canon is not able to improve their products.

I hope it's doable for the 6D...  It'll be awesome.  Canon if they can't hire the ML team should donate a lot to ML team.

If you really want to have 14 stops of DR... just buy a D800.

Because of course they have never improved their products. ::) there is no improvement ever in any product they produce.
If you debate with a fool onlookers can find it VERY difficult to tell the difference.
