I have run magic lantern on my Canon 5D mark II.

It was pretty interesting and worked pretty well, but I'm waiting for
their updates to catch up with Canon firmware updates.

The things I liked most about it was the ability to over ride the audio
AGC (Automatic Gain Control) and the VU meters.

I see there are now updates from both Canon (2.0.8) and Magic Lantern
(0.1.9) since I last checked in early fall.  Thanks for the remider...

I'd like to see them add voice annotation to it since the hardware is
all there.
