An Easy Magic Lantern How-To from CNET

An Easy Magic Lantern How-To from CNET

CNET has posted a video and article about the Magic Lantern software for your Canon DSLR. This software helps to unlock a lot of features not available otherwise in various Canon DSLR cameras.

From CNET
Magic Lantern is one of the most popular firmware add-ons available, opening up many possibilities for photography and video. It’s free, runs alongside the stock Canon firmware and new features are constantly being added.

Once installed, your dSLR gets useful tools such as:

  • Focus peaking: highlights the area of the image that are in focus
  • Zebras: flashes to indicate areas of the image that are under or over-exposed
  • HDR video: boosts the dynamic range of recorded video by alternating the ISO
  • In-camera intervalometer: useful for time-lapse photography, with no extra remote required
  • Motion detection: take an image when the camera senses motion

These features are just the tip of the iceberg. A full functionality list can be found in the userguide.

Shuttercount Now Available for Windows

Shuttercount Now Available for Windows

From Dire Studio:

ShutterCount displays the number of shutter actuations (the shutter count) of your Canon EOS digital camera. The shutter count is read directly from a USB-connected camera, and thus provides accurate numbers that are not attainable with simple EXIF-based methods.
 
With ShutterCount you can easily check whether a newly purchased camera is really new, or check how heavily used a pre-owned item is. And you can save a trip to a Canon Service Center by doing the reading for yourself.
 
The app provides unlimited readings for an unlimited number of cameras, so you can freely track actual camera usage. Even if you work for a rental house or just lend a camera to a friend.
 
ShutterCount only displays the shutter count for still photos – video clips recorded are not included in the number. For a separate mirror movement reading (that includes videos) you should consult an authorized Canon Service Center.
 
History logging allows you to track camera usage. Logs are stored in CSV format that can be imported into Apple’s Numbers or Microsoft Excel for further processing. History logging is not available on Windows.
