Philip Bloom is reporting a Magic Lantern Firmware Hack for the Canon Rebel T2i/550D. There is also quite a lot of discussion here on the Cinema 5D Forum. I highly recommend being very cautious with any type of hack prior to any paid work. Here is a rip from his site with the added features from the Firmware Hack. Thank you Trammell Hudson, how about the 7D next?
