From Planet5D: Alex over at Magic Lantern announced today that the Magic Lantern team has a version of their software that should work on Canon EOS 5D Mark III firmware version 1.2.3 (which is the latest version)


Alex stated:

“Not alpha, not beta, nor zeta, just a bleeding edge that happens to work for me. It might work for you or it might not. (note that my standards are fairly high, so what I call bleeding edge, others may call semi-stable or whatever)”


There are significant updates in this version too, like the elimination of the need to mod the boot flag – but Alex also warns there are still issues with portions of Magic Lantern including the HDMI output in this version.

These Magic Lantern disclaimers are about as unstable as ML hacks.

This happens a lot - as I am sure you have noticed too. Never understood why.

Just installed on 1.2.3.  So far works perfectly.  Little complaints from me other than the slow start up time after sleep.

Messin around with Dual ISO now.

When you use dual ISO for RAW video, which software can we use to pull the shadows?

I use either After Effects and ACR or Davinci Resolve. If I'm on a tight deadline, I use Resolve since it is quicker and much more reliable. With ACR it can be difficult to take advantage of the dual iso through tone mapping alone, using any of the sliders can create flickering.

Thanks ... one more question, I see that Davinci Resolve has a free "Lite" version ... can the shadows be pulled effectively in the Lite version?

That's what I use and you sure can, the big difference between the two is the lack of noise reduction in the lite version. It takes a bit of practice to be able to work with Resolve, but once you're good at it you can make an image look as good or almost as good as ACR. It also has a lot of other fine controls that ACR doesn't have.

All,

I thought I remember that a Magic Lantern version of the DotTune/AFMA was being implemented and in beta.
Did that make it into this release?

Yes its in there.  For what its worth.  No substitute for doing it with something like a spydercal.  Though its better than using something wildly out of spec.

Who cares?  I like it I use it. He does not like it he does not use it.
