Magic Lantern starts work on way to ‘enhance’ Canon EOS R feature-set: Digital Photography Review

The group that gives Canon customers with applications to develop the function set of their cameras has begun cracking the brand new EOS R mirrorless firmware.

Beta firmware from Magic Lantern is claimed to be within the check phases, and if it follows already current Magic Lantern software program, it’ll add new show overlays, uncompressed uncooked video, focus stacking and even the prospect to load video games on to the digicam. Magic Lantern doesn’t change the firmware already loaded onto the digicam by Canon, however is further software program that runs alongside it so as to add further options.

Many customers will maybe hope that full-sensor 4K video might be added, although the implications of the digicam utilizing the entire sensor space for prolonged recording is but to be found.

Andrew Reid from EOSHD reveals a video of an experimental firmware probe efficiently taking management of the digicam system – even when to only present a inexperienced display. This, he says, is sweet information, because it means the Magic Lantern code ‘was capable of execute on the EOS R as regular’ and ‘which demonstrates the chance to alter digicam registers and execute code on the primary processor.’

Clearly extra work is required, however the first steps of cracking the file format and encryption appears to be underway.
