Okay BIG news this week. Folks who owes the venerable Canon 7D could at last  breath a sign of relief and  relax in knowing that ML has done it again and hacked the unhackable 7D. It is the first step. The difficulty from the start is the dual digic CPU and different ways the camera software works. Now A1ex of ML has found a way in very much like the start of the 5D hack. Via the silent picture function. It is ported from live view so it is just a matter of time when certain rates of motion raw video could be recorded. Funny how this is just happening with Canon DSLRs?

 

The ML raw chart is getting larger 

 

 

cheers

I suggested they go with a 1DX but they are afraid of Canon. Canon has a huge market to protect in the Cine EOS and will likely shut it down.  That's why the D4 is the best camera to hack.  XQD is da bomb and Nikon would lose nothing... in fact I'm surprised Nikon isn't paying ML to do it! LOL

I would love to see similar sort of ML community for Nikon. But I think Nikon may be too late anyway. Its not the company and it is to do with the size of the market. Nikon's strength is in the digital still and optics. They are small compared with Canon and Sony. Plus many Nikon sensors are made by Sony. Canon produce theirs. One would wonder since Nikon has no cine video equipment market to protect they would have nothing to lose. 

 

Hacking 1DX just to see if it is the same as 1DC would be fun to see. I don't think we will see that anytime soon. 1DX is still pretty expensive. 

 

Okay now for some more news on the Canon 7D

 

Latest from the wizard  A1ex of ML....

I am going to have some fun trying the hack out on a Hotrod 7D. 

 

Some footage by Florian (flofifull in ML)here looks quite nice:

It's limited to about 41 frames at the min Jon, but by the sound of it then it won't be long until they get continuous recording working. We've been moving this week so it's not been my priority but hopefully I'll have time to play around more next week as long as I can eat into my 6 week editing backlog a little bit!! LOL
