Why did the CHDK never jump ship from Powershots to EOS?

EOS cameras already do out the box what CDHK largely does for hamstrung compacts (that is RAW and full exposure options)

There was a CDHK version that unlocked intermediate ISO, spot metering and different AF patterns on the EOS 400D / XTi, and there was the 'russian' firmware hack that turned your 300D / Rebel into a 10D in a plastic case.

Magic Lantern have really been pushing the hacks for the recent EOS cameras, and mainly from a video perspective, although they are branching out.  I use a mac and format my cards each use, so it's just a bit of a pain for me, my 7D can't be hacked, and to be honest, my 600D doesn't really need it.  Had it on my 550D, but hated the GUI.  Got by without it.

Fyi: A magic lantern alpha will be probably out next week with limited feature set, so work is progressing successfully. And the devs are researching the possibility to overclock the 5d3 and use other codecs to get 1080p/60 or 720p/120 :-) ... though it's no way certain it'll work. But the digic5 seems to have more power to play with than the old cpu.

I know they had problems with the dual processors ... there's a long explanation on the website.  Maybe they've overcome things.

No, they haven't  - ml doesn't run on dual-digic cameras (1dx, 7d) and all attempts to start user code have failed. But fortunately the 5d3 is single-digic only and very close to the 5d2.

EDIT: The ml alpha for 5d3 is out :-) .. http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=2602.0

Just to reiterate what Marsu42's edit states. The first alpha version of ML for the 5D3 is out.

The other purpose of my posting is to say that ML is really on to some exciting stuff that is in development. They have just begun to access more encoder parameters (current release version allows the bitrate to be raised, but buffer overruns limit its current usefulness in some situations). Using development releases, I've tested recording in ALL-I on my 600D/T3i at bitrates above 150 Mb/s! The improved bitrates or less compression really helps to improve the image in post (e.g., sharpening and color correction).

There are still kinks to be worked out, but the things they are able to do are quite remarkable IMHO. There are even indications that 4:2:2 video (perhaps as MJPEG) might be possible. Alas, I think this is taking a back seat to getting all the current features working on the 5D3. Regardless, I think this bodes very well for what we'll be able to get out of the 5D3 (and all other supported cams) with ML.

Is there any speed requirement for the card? Will it matter if I stick in an older card? ML suggested we install the code in the SD card. I never used one before so what I have is a class 4 card...

The suggestion is the sd card because the controller is crippled on the 5d3 and you're likely to exchange the faster cf more often, so you'd have to put ml on every cf instead of just one sd. Ml consists only of a 1mb autoexec.bin file (and some help screens and cropmarks), speed of the card doesn't matter at all.

I wish they could add 1080p60.  Almost every camera coming out recently has it, even much cheaper ones like the Sony A57 ($600), all the other Sony offerings,  and the new Pansonic GH3 (haven't released price, but probably sub-$1k).

But Canon can't add it to a $3500 5D3 or $6000 C100?  For the first time I'm starting to seriously consider ditching Canon.
5DIII/5DII/Bunch of L's and ZE's, currently rearranging.

Thanks! I installed it yesterday and the alpha 1 works fine. So finally I will be able to MF. Waiting for the rest of the features. I guess this is why Canon gave us 2 cards on the 5D3 :)

I'm a member of the ML site now and anxiously awaiting 2.4 so we can get all the features on mk3.  Any idea on timeframe?

I'd say at 2-3 month - feature porting is nowhere near complete, and beta testing will take some time. You can compile the latest trunk yourself though, just did it for my 60d, it's not that hard to do.

I'd be more than happy to beta test, I'll contribute some money once they get to that stage so I can get my hands on it a bit early.

I need to start getting into this, maybe once summer and fall are over and I'm caught up with photos I will have some spare time to do this coding on top of my normal coding.
