5K RAW 24p video for $150 - Magic Lantern making great strides on Canon EOS M

Recommended Posts

Video AF can be enabled, also when using ML. Didn't really test it, but when I noticed the lens started to autofocus I turned AF off. Don't think the AF will be usable in video mode on this camera.

It depends what kind of AF. Tracking AF in video is not working. At least when in ML RAW modes. It's working in photo mode. But don't like it and don't use it.
However single shot AF is working in both photo and video including ML RAW. Single shot like: you press the button, camera focuses and signals when focus is achieved. It's kind of slow but it works and focus is reliable. In my settings different buttons are assigned for focusing and exposure metering. 

Here is how usually shoot no matter if AF or MF is used.  1. check/correct exposure settings 2. Frame 3. Focus 4.Start recording. It's a slow process but works reasonably well. This is not a camera for fast paced shooting. 

Settings in video are as follows: AF method - FlexiZoneAF square / Focus mode - AF+MF
