Alex, who’s working for the Magic Lantern team, published early this morning a photo showing the beginnings of the hack running on the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and Marvin sent us the photo via twitter. Thanks Alex and Marvin!

Obviously, it is still early and the only thing Alex has managed so far is to get the traditional “hello world” text to display (a traditional thing for programmers to show that they’ve gotten a good start), but there’s a hope that they’ll be able to add additional code from the Magic Lantern arsenal to the Canon EOS 5D Mark III.

Oh by the way, what do you think?

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
