I just got a brand spanking new Canon 60D with the Magic Lantern custom firmware, and I love it except for one thing: when you are looking at the images you have taken, and you press the zoom button, it zooms in as far as possible. I assume this is probably 1:1.

When I press the zoom button, how can I get it to zoom to the least amount? I have looked in the manual and I can't find anything.

After looking for a long time, I found a setting in Magic Lantern that seemed to fix it. I am not sure if it was caused by Magic Lantern but I assume it was. – SamB Jan 19 '12 at 18:36
Oh hey. Mentioning that you're using a custom firmware is a pretty key detail! – mattdm Jan 19 '12 at 19:34
Could you also tell others which setting to use? – Imre Jan 19 '12 at 22:40
I removed magic lantern after that so I don't know what setting. Sorry I forgot to mention it! – SamB Jan 20 '12 at 19:26
@SamB: Please use comments for those kinds of updates, or even update your question. You did not actually provide an answer, so I've converted it to a comment. – jrista Nov 3 '12 at 16:28

In Magic Lantern under 'prefs' under 'image review settings'. Turn off 'quick zoom'

All done. Enjoy.
