    I got a t3i a few weeks ago and was wondering if I should put Magic Lantern on it. Is it difficult to use and install?

    I watched a few videos on it. What would yall recommend?

    If you are careful and capable.
    I have a 60D with Magic Lantern and certainly for my video work it's essential.

    I would say Magic Lantern is an essential part of owning the 600d, without it, the camera is just a basic camera.

    focus peaking, multi iso, magic zoom, zebras, etc etc...

    theres a small risk involved, but i know lots of people with the same camera and other canon models and iv never heard of a meltdown.

    It has lots of super useful tools, especially for video. Focus peaking and the intervalometer being some of my favorites. Definitely worth trying, it's not a very long process.
