Magic lantern for the T4I

Magic lantern finally released a version for the T4I. It has the coveted digital zoom for video. The zoom is exactly 3x. It converts a 200mm to a 600mm with no loss in F stop, but the sensor size is reduced. The digital zoom is not accessible from the zoom buttons, only the menus.

It often fails to stop recording until it's power cycled. 1 time, it didn't create a recording, but that may have been a wrong button. Every time it was observed to properly start recording & not stop recording, it still properly wrote the file when power cycled.

It also fails to go back into video mode when power cycled. It needs another power cycle to work.

When video cropping is enabled, the 10x focusing aid is unavailable. The peaking feature isn't as accurate.

Video cropping also adds pretty nasty noise because of the reduced sensor size. It's no good if moving closer is an option. It's physically equivalent to the F stop change of a teleconverter.
