Hey this is a video demonstrating some of the recent work on getting Magic Lantern to the T1i. Not all features work yet and there is no warranty that no harm will come to your camera, so...don't complain if it breaks your hardware. One of the great features that has already had some progress is the audio features of MagicLantern for the T1i. The most current progress is at chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?PHPSESSID=dc3ea99382222a1bdd2995ac861358f9&topic=5971.45.

-WARNING always a possibility it could break your camera-
(Thanks to Alins for instructions) Made- 2/7/2011

To get on your T1i-
1. follow the 550d installation instructions: magiclantern.wikia.com/wiki/550d_install
skip step 0
get the magiclantern.fir from ML 500d branch: bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/

most recent( 2/7/2011) autoexec.bin found here: chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=5971.0;attach=4445

Press the recycle button to open Magic Lantern menu.

*TIP: If things seem locked up quickly take out your battery.*

---Followed XCFlowresX video: youtube.com/watch?v=WKNREMo924E for mic hack.----
Also note- T1i captures mono sound so even with an external stereo mic you are going to be getting a mono signal. If recorded directly to the T1i

Thanks to Chuchin, Alins, and XCFlowresX, and A1ex.
