Software & Accessories / Re: Magic Lantern for 5d3 1.2.3 released

I'm still as trepidatious as ever about bricking my 5DIII, but the continued success of ML raises my curiosity.  I see the clear benefits of ML for video, but what about stills?  I heard about a expose to the right mode for auto exposure which sounds interesting, but after looking at the ML website, I don't see it or much else that would be much use to stills shooters with AF lenses.

What are the benefits and drawbacks for stills shooters?
There are no drawpacks if you install ML, you just get more functions :P
But here are some things which I personally use for photos only (Not all of them!):
Dual ISO
Raw histogram
Magic zoom (easier manual focusing with LV )
Advanced bracketing for HDR
Bulb timer (from 1s to 8h)
Motion detect in LV
Display gain in LV to see in dark
Focus patterns for my poor 600D =)

black and white is something I dislike as the color is always preserved


It doesn't matter if you set the camera to black and white or not, the raw file will have colors.

I lol'd  :D

But seriously here's one example I made, single raw file:

This maybe a stupid question, but anyway..
Do these EF-M lenses work on Canon's other APS-C cameras such as 600D and 7D?

Here's my latest short/test with this firmware, I continue to be amazed:


This was shot over a Memorial Day rock climbing trip to Idaho.
Image quality is just soo damn good! Shot at 2:49 just show how sharp it can be.

I hope my 600D supports autoETTR  :P Would be very useful when taking landscapes!

I was surprised how sharp my Sigma 30mm 1.4 is @2.8 :)

Oh I accidentally embedded the wrong picture, this is the one I meant! :D
But yeah, I understand if some of you like the grunge-look.
