Another step in the process. This time really amazing:

“we’re running our own code on the camera and showing that we can add new features to it.”

Big efforts, lot of hard work being done.

    • Hi,

      The man who has been working, along with few others, on the hacking process is Trammell Hudson. Please check http://magiclantern.wikia.com/ to get in touch with the people.

      You can also check http://www.cinema5d.com which is the forum where the project was born (check “The Firmware” section on the forum). It’s probably by far the best forum related to HDSLRs.
