Canon 50D video?

26 August 2014 - 07:33 AM

So it's been a while since I posted here. I have recently come across Magic Lantern which supposedly enables video on Canon 50D's. I am interested in that DSLR due to having an MDX-40/50D housing, but cannot figure out how to turn on Liveview (there's no dedicated button on the housing for that). Everything else(in theory) should work fine, i.e. with ML the trash button becomes the "new ML menu button" and the Set button(in the round dial) becomes the on/off recording switch. Has anyone played with this option? I see some really nice RAW videos online and am thinking to try it out(only issue is how to turn on LV, unless I can program a custom function and assign a different button to turn on LV?). Any info/ideas would greatly be appreciated.

 

Also, has anyone modified their S&S housings by adding switches/buttons to the acrylic display?

 

Thanks,

Blueline.
