Hardly, because of the dual cpu design they didn't get it to work - that's the reason I'd never want to replace my 60d w/ the 7d.

I love my 5d II with unified ML and technicolor Cinestyle. Shot a music video last week, editor called me to tell me it's the best footage he has seen out of 5d, made me proud. Not sure 5D III can get ML, since they couldn't get it to work with 7D due to dual processors and 5D III has dual processors as well.

5D III has a single Digic5+. It does not have dual processors.

I will also concur that Magic Lantern on a T3i is an incredible tool.  Focus peaking in live view makes manual focus a whole new ball game in video and stills mode.  On screen waveform and histogram allow for more accurate exposure and my percentage of usable images and footage has gone up by orders of magnitude since adding it.

Cheers,
Pete

How stable is that Unified version on 5dMk II?  I see that they are really only doing development on the Unified version now...  are you a beta tester for that version or did you just donate to get the beta version?

I donated 1 EUR and got the beta version.  I use only two features on 5D2: HDR video and HDR bracketing.  Thus, I cannot tell how stable the beta version is.  However, I haven't had any problem.

is the 5Dmk2 unified out properly yet?
last time i used it it was a few months ago and it was an unstable bomb so i removed it
my 5D2 firmware is still running 2.08 since i hadto downgrade firmware to get it to work
I was mostly interested in the still options bracketing and focus stacking
but it was so hit and miss and not reliable I just canned it

The unified version for the xxd/xxxd bodies is quite stable, but even here from time to time regressions or crashes occur - but nothing that cannot be solved by updating/downgrading ml or switching the camera off an on again. "unstable bomb" is certainly not the target - for updates and questions see the bug tracker & dev list, this is where you can get the most up to date information:

I'd sure like to see if for the 5D mkIII.....would be nice if they could remove the artificial 29:59 video limit, and to allow full HDMI out....

Since the 5d3 has the new digic5 that no ml dev has seen yet, don't expect it soon. And since ml is an still an unofficial addon, it might even be Canon made it even harder to get a firmware addon running at all - they certainly tried with the encrypted firmware addons on the latest bodies. And when Canon really wants to prevent something due to their body lineup policy, they will - so you won't be able to unlock features that are really meant for more expensive or upcoming models.

I've done 2 video shoots with the unified version on my 5d. No real problems. Once my battery drained overnight, thats about it. Main advantage for me has been the 2.35 crop marks plus the ability to custom white balance and then edit that custom balance, works great under fluorescent lights.
