The Magic Lantern team has released version 2.3 of its impressive Canon HDSLR enhanced firmware. It’s reportedly more stable and more feature-packed than ever.
Magic Lantern v2.3 represents an important milestone – professionals from all around the world are already trusting it for their paid work. We can safely say it’s no longer a hack, but it’s strongly heading towards a solid piece of engineering that you can trust.
We have worked a lot on bug-fixing and usability improvements and we sincerely hope you will find it a great companion for all your shooting sessions – from hobbyist to professional.
Currently, Magic Lantern is available to those users who are willing to make a donation of $10 or more. Beginning on August 13, 2012, it will be free for everyone to download. [Read more…]
Here’s a nice timelapse short that further demonstrates that the 5D Mark II (even after it’s recent price drop) has still got it. It’s worth hitting the full screen in HD for the 4 short minutes it takes.
This video is a collaboration between Sheldon Neill and Colin Delehanty. All timelapses were shot on the Canon 5D Mark II with a variety of Canon L and Zeiss CP.2 Lenses.
It looks like the Canon 5D Mark II has received a price drop of $120. The normal price at B&H is now $2079 (down from $2199). This is still a very competent camera and quite the bargain at this price. Check it out with the price drop here at B&H Photo.
Canon USA has the 5D Mark II back in stock for $1759 refurbished (here’s the link to the 5D Mark II page). It runs $2199 new. These sell out on a weekly basis – usually within a matter of hours.
As usual, there are also several other refurbished Canon bodies and Speedlites and lenses available direct from Canon USA.
