Magic Lantern on the 5D Mark III
« on: April 27, 2012, 12:00:38 PM »
It can be done!
The folks at Magic Lantern have shown the hack can be ported to the new 5D Mark III.

This is all very preliminary and I wouldn’t expect to see the software available for some time. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

Having no knowledge of Magic Lantern, what can I except this to offer me for someone who doesn't shoot video?

The Magic Lantern team has been primarily dedicated to video, but this does prove there are programming hooks that other developers could latch code too.  Perhaps an internal intervelometer?  (I could even see Magic Lantern implimenting this for time lapse videos.)

Why did the CHDK never jump ship from Powershots to EOS?

This is great, except I'm not really sure that ML can fix the really soft resolution of the 5D3.

Even though the $8K that I have saved up is probably going to the soon to be released Sony FS700 since it's far superior to anything Canon video is offering, especially for the price; I will probably donate to ML just because they are doing great things.

If Magic Lantern can 1) Increase the resolution on the video 2) offer clean HDMI out 3) Can over-crank to at least 60fps at 1080p (hopefully 120fps at 1080p since Sony has raised the bar so high at 480 fps at 1080p); then Canon might retain me as a customer, otherwise, Sony it is.

It's kind of sad that Canon video has fallen to such a low that they have to depend on a group hackers to save their dwindling customer base who are flocking to the much better alternatives offered by Sony, Black Magic and even the Nikon D800 has some huge advantages over the 5D3 like higher resolution, clean HDMI and crop modes; and that camera is $400 less. WTF Canon.

Anyways, go Magic Lantern. You guys rule.

I've quickly had a flick through and jotted down everything that didn't look like pure video.  Pretty much all of these can be enabled or disabled, and are effectively invisible when you don't want to use them. The default mode hides the lesser used stuff.

- Improved power saving features
- Flashlight (turns on the led light to the left of the jog dial)
- Shutter count
- Zebra stripes to show over or underexposed areas in live view
- Focus peaking to show in-focus areas in live view (think manual focussing fast primes)
- A 'magic zoom box' for checking focus in live view
- Crop marks or customer grids for framing in live view
- Ghost image - overlay a previously taken image in live view
- 'Defishing' previews a rectilinear image from the Samyang 8mm fisheye.
- Spotmeter - display brightness from a small spot in the centre of the liveview image
- False colour exposure aidl each brightness area is colour coded.
- Live histogram
- Waveform exposure aid, useful for checking overall brightness.
- ISO values in 1/8EV steps
- Aperture in 1.8EV steps
- Shutter in 1/8EV steps
- Adjust white balance in Kelvin
- Green-magenta white balance shift for fluorescent lights
- Blue Amber white balance shift
- Boost live view digital display gain
- HDR bracketing, up to 9 photos in 0.5 to 5EV steps
- Intervalometer for timelapse
- Bulb timer up to 480 minutes
- Use the LCD face sensor to trip the shutter
- Trip the shutter with noise (e.g. clap hands)
- Trip the shutter when exposure changes (e.g. lightning)
- Trip the shutter when the frame changes (movement)
- Silent pictures
- Weird 'slit' pictures
- Link mirror lock up with timer and remote
- Trap focus, takes a picture when subject comes into focus (MF only)
- Custom focus patterns for the focus sensors
- Rack focus
- Stack focus
- Focus distance and depth of field info
- Upsidedown mode for the display
- 'Sticky' depth of field preview button
- Shutter half press becomes 'sticky'
- Auto burst pic quality can reduce IQ to prevent buffer filling
- Display 35mm equivalent focal lengths to include the crop factor
- Review images: Compare images when reviewing photos (displays two images as one with, split diagonally through centre)
- Review images: Timelapse play - whizz through all photos taken incredibly fast)
- Review images: Fuse/overlay two exposures
- Faster zoom when reviewing images
- Quicker erasing (less button pressing).

Pretty much all of these can be enabled or disabled, and are effectively invisible when you don't want to use them. The default mode hides the lesser used stuff.

:-))) ... I guess this and the ff announcements shat should make the price of used 5d2's drop a little.

... that's why I didn't get a 7d, but obviously people only find out about it some time after they got one. I am using magic lantern all the time, the focus peaking, n hdr shots, focus stacking is worth it alone, not to speak of audio remote shot, motion detect, ... but the ml running on the 5d2 and later 5d3, at least there's an upgrade path now.
