Canon EOS R Magic Lantern software hacked within a fortnight of its release on the market

Nowadays software experts are waiting for the launch of every single product and they are hacked within weeks or even days. The Canon EOS R was a long-awaited product which came to the market just about two weeks ago and the software of this product has already been hacked and loaded onto other cameras. This is kind of a great loss for the original investors but definitely, the hackers have only hacked the software. No one could hack the new Canon 80D lenses available in this model.

 

Unique aspects of the Canon EOS R camera software

The software was a major part of the camera which complemented its high-quality lenses. The software was updated to have features like dual ISO, zebras, RGB histogram, new grids and several such features on this magic lantern software. They have made revolutionary changes with this model where they designed the LED light such that it could be used as a marker. Controlling the camera lenses and dealing with the magic lantern software is not something that newbies can do themselves. Moreover, if you download the software on an unintended device you might end up cancelling the warranty of the device. So, you must be careful while downloading this software on any device for which it is not meant.

This Canon EOS R Magic Lantern software is a unique software which runs through the memory card and has been very popular even before it was launched in the market. This increasing popularity of the product might just have resulted in such an early hacking of the software. The hacked version is now used by many to capture and edit photos and videos. This is excellent software for professional use.
