I finally made it: I managed to get the magic lantern run on my Canon EOS 60D. Magic Lantern is a firmware extension for Canon EOS cameras which adds extended video functionalities to the camera. And it adds an intervalometer to the camera. So I learned something. Again.
Obviously there is the possibility to create the pictures in a silent mode. This is better than the constant *clack* caused by the mirror. This is called silent picture mode. Too bad, that you do not record the full frame. Sadly I became aware of this after having recorded a footage of 2700 pictures.
The pictures in silent mode have the extension 422. You have to convert them in order to get JPEGs. Please search the Magic Lantern’s wiki for information how to do this. And still. I think I found a possibility too record – why not use life view?
This was a try. But it did not work. There are worse things in life. And I am not speaking about the constant *clack*. This constant *clack* allows me to work on footage which is bigger than Full-HD thus supporting pan and zoom without interpolation.
Or do you have a solution?

I have got to try magic lantern! Looks good! I have been tethered for too long!
