Unlimited possibilities : Hack that lets users run Linux kernel on Canon EOS DSLR 60D, 600D, 7D, 5D2 and 5D3 models
Taking beautiful snaps is the only function of Canon EOS cameras but what if you can hack it to run Linux kernel on it. Magic Lantern has done just that.
They have hacked Canon EOS DSLR and run the Linux kernel on it. This was possible because the Canon EOS camera models have a processor (ARM 946E-S) and RAM (256MB/512MB depending on the model.) The Magic Lantern guys first accessed the Canon EOS bootloader and ported latest Linux kernel (3.19) onto it.
Linux can run on anything.
