CANON FOCUS BOX - WHICH MODEL?
« on: April 19, 2017, 07:38:35 PM »
Was at a wedding 2 weeks ago and saw a guy with canon dslr doing video. He was focusing, looking at the lcd screen, but there was  a large box on the right, zoomed in on the subject, while the remainder of the LCD was the wide shot. what model of canon was it? I have  a 5d3 and it doesn't have this, so its a model after that I presume.

Thanks.

That was the Fox-Force-Five model... a very limited Tarantino edition.

I'm limping by with my current equipment... once I get that new lens with IS and blue goo... then I'll finally be able to go out and take my first decent picture...

Sounds like the Magic Lantern "Magic Zoom".
That's one of the most widely supported Magic Lantern features, so it could have been a number of models ...

yes that looks like it, thanks. I didn't ask the guy about it, I just saw another box appear on the lcd and he was focusing with that. Thanks so much. It would be great if Canon actually incorporated something like this into future models.
