Magic lantern 2.3 for free - get it !
« on: August 14, 2012, 05:15:49 PM »

If you want to use your Canon 5D MK2 or other Canon DSLRīs for Movie, get magic Lantern 2.3. Itīs a free download now and I strongly recommend getting it. Itīs like having a new Camera - you will love it ! (Of course donouring some bucks will still be allowed ! :-)

I have played with it now for the day and it is amazing. HDR video alone is a killer, the built in timer with focus ramping another. There is so much hard to start with-But I try- here an HDR Video sample:

and here is a short demo of the focus ramping - all done directly from the camera !

this is amazing, I am still digging and permanently finding new stuff. I have transformed my 5DMK2 into a production monster now, it already had some nice features from the removal of the antialiasing and the UV/IR CUT filters, but combined with this this is a dream !

Last time I looked at ML you had to install it with every card change, or have it on every card, which made it a no go for me

Is that still the case?

The HDR video, do you know the workflow?

Certainly I guess the subject matter has to be minimally changing per frame?

From a stills point of view, it is as big a deal, peaking, single button 100%, etc, etc. It's made me consider the camera I have always loved to hate. Now if only I could love the colour....

From reading the install PDF, that still appears to be the case :(
All rather too scary.

I wish Canon would wake up and offer a significant upgrade to the 5dii's firmware like this. I'd happily pay quite a lot for it. Few manufacturers seem to have woken up to the potentially lucrative paid firmware upgrade idea.

Not gonna happen with cards swapping between d3, 5d, SD702, and around in the office

Absolutely Id pay for firmware, crop mode is the latest thing I want in downscaling cameras, like the D4 does..

Will the exposure bracketing work with non-Canon, manual lenses? (I guess that at least the focus bracketing will require an AF lens).

Kind regards - Hening.
