Focus Peaking for Canon 5D3
« on: October 18, 2013, 03:56:43 PM »
Hi Guys,

Sorry if this has been discussed before but after using a focus peaking feature on my Fuji camera's I really would enjoy this feature with my 5D3 and Zeiss lenses.  It really makes manuallly focusing so much easier IMO. 

I would imagine that Magic Lantern has offered this but wondered if anyone is using ML on a regular basis with a 5D3 for stills and what do you/they think of it.

Thanks again,

I keep intending to try it, but never find the time.  Maybe next year :)

I tried the first alpha of ML for focus peaking for a bit. It was confusing - some spots close up and some further away were highlighted and I had to assess where most of the red dots were and it stressed me out as it took a long time so I gave up. Waiting for the next release of ML with dual ISO and hopefully for 1.2.1 and not 1.1.3 :)

Focus peaking is awesome, but this feature really needs a state of the art EVF to be truly useful.

In the first alpha it was shown in live view. I wanted it for video...
