If I have an SD card and someone else has a camera that is not formatted with Magic Lantern, will that card work or be dangerous to use in that camera?

    ML is installed on the SD card. if by "not formatted with magic lantern" you mean "without the boot flag enabled" then yes, it will work and no it isn't harmful.

    On the second camera, the ML card will work normally (it will load Canon firmware). This is because the bootflag is disabled in the camera.

    With the ML card, you can run "Firmware update" on the second camera to activate it. But until you do that, it will run Canon firmware.
