MAGIC LANTERN AJ 5.0
Our friends at Planet5D have recently posted the announcement of a new version of Magic Lantern.
This version includes many improvements, along with a great and enhanced user interface (menu). Just check the video and you’ll see what we mean.
Here is a brief list of improvements:
1) AJ MENU: *
Have a play and let me know what you think.
**2) CANON ISO MENU* :
When you change the ISO (using the button) – the Canon menu is now displayed for about 5 seconds
3) HOTKEY* : Enhancement
More details in the FALSE COLOURS MENU. When you press/hold the Joy-Centre for a period of time (eg 1 sec) – on release, the false colours is toggled.
4) AUDIO* : Enhancement
When configuring audio – the audio meters are shown.
Options for Microphone source, analogue gain and digital gain dashboard display.
5) KILL OVERLAY* :
Activatable from GREEN SCREEN MENU.
6) ML CONFIG SAVE* : Enhancement
You can save config either immediately, every time the camera is switch off, or Once (eg to save the exact state you want ML to start up in).
7) AF-ON* : Enhancement
I have tried to untangle the DryOs spaghetti of ‘events’ to enable more keys to be on the Camera. I didn’t have much success (mainly because when AF-ON and ISO keys is pressed, the Dry-Os has a bit of fit). What I have done is try and stop these keys from interfering with the keys in ML.

CANON FIRMWARE UPDATES
This is one of those things that makes you wonder… “WHY Canon doesn’t improve the official firmware when there is so HUGE potential inside this camera?”
Well, that’s exactly what we ask and request to Canon since SO long ago…
