As has been reported just about everyone, I've released the first public beta of the Magic Lantern firmware
for the Canon 5D Mark II. It isn't directly based on CHDK, but I am very appreciative of all of the incredible effort that you've put into understanding Canon's hardware and DryOS. Without CHDK there isn't a chance that I would have been able to make such rapid progress -- using IDA Pro on a clean ROM dump is much easier than bitbanging a UART on the status LED and hoping for the best.
has been posted that shows the initial features and the improved audio quality in the modified firmware, when used with a higher quality external preamp like the juicedLink CX231
. The amps inside the camera are pretty bad and it only has an unbalanced input, so a good preamp is a requirement for higher quality sound. As part of testing the new firmware,
to find how to adjust the gain to produce the least noise.
