"Not alpha, not beta, nor zeta, just a bleeding edge that happens to work for me. It might work for you or it might not. (note that my standards are fairly high, so what I call bleeding edge, others may call semi-stable or whatever)"

These Magic Lantern disclaimers are about as unstable as ML hacks.

I'm going to look into this more tho...

I've been holding off on my 5D3 with ML so far, due to that problem with having to set an unchangeable boot flag, which also seemed to increase boot and wakeup times significantly for the camera even after ML was uninstalled.

This sounds exciting!! I'll be researching this MUCH more before I try it out, but this does sound exciting.

I've been dying to try out the camera functions for stills and of course for RAW video!!!

Just installed on 1.2.3.  So far works perfectly.  Little complaints from me other than the slow start up time after sleep.

Messin around with Dual ISO now.
Dang, was hoping that would be fixed.

Can you confirm that the slow wake times go away after you remove ML?

The delay appears to be from loading ML and reading the saved settings.  Not waiting find its mind in memory.  If i decide to uninstall ill let you know.  Liking it so much that its likely to stay forma while.  ;)

It's "just" a gui wrapper for the command line cr2hdr.exe

I tried magic lantern before on the 5D3 , the bootflag thing was terrible, it made your camera boot up slow even if you took the card out.

This new version is great, you take the card out with magic lantern on,put another card in and the camera wakes up instantly.

I really like the dot tune as well, done all my lenses, +15 on a canon 300mm f4 IS  ;D

Never tried cr2hdr before. But then my philosophy is that "Procrastination wins. Always!". Just look at what the ML team has given me - er - us...  ;)
They work hard and I work harder at procrastination... :P

That is fantastic news!!  I've been waiting on this to try ML out on my 5D3.

I'm likely gonna let it mature just a 'tad' longer...since this is a new version working on the newer Canon firmware.

Like with most things on this level, I rarely test the water with BOTH feet.

Just finished a month of shooting with 5D3 & ML in Cape Verde for a feature, over 1TB of footage (H.264, not RAW), not a single crash or issue.

I absolutely love ML and the tools it gives to a DP is invaluable! Highly recommended, I could not go back to Canon firmware.

BTW, the sensor never heated over 53C (even at midday Cape Verdean sun), the active cooling just kicks in and drains your batteries a bit more. But I've shot in similar situations with Canon firmware and it's just the same.

I posted on ML forum but got no answer so far.
Question.  After I installed ML on my 5D III (1.2.3), my automatic image display is disabled.  I had it set to automatically show the image I took for 4 seconds after shooting the photo, but after ML, the LCD does not display anything after I shoot the photo unless I actually push the display button.  I checked in both Canon and ML menu, and there does not seem to be a solution to this?  TIA.

Probably should have reset to factory defaults before installing as the instructions state.  Many problems are resolved by doing that.

Try uninstalling back to factory.  Reset defaults and try again.

If you dont want to use dot tune can you still input Focal calibrated AFMA values into a ML enabled 5D3?
