Magic Lantern XMas Edition for 550D, 60D, 600D, 500D, 50D

Xmas Edition Magic Lantern
So what’s new for users of the APS-C Canon DSLRs using Magic Lantern?

FPS controlEdit

  • You can lower the frame rate down to 4 fps at a shutter speed of 1/4 seconds, which gives you extreme low-light capabilities.
  • Overcranking doesn’t really work; the 60D hardly gets 35fps in 1080p. On the other hand, 500D and 50D can now record at 24p!

HDR videoEdit

  • For high-contrast scenes with not-so-fast moving subjects, you can get great shadow and highlight detail.
  • This feature is enabled on all cameras, but older models may have synchronization issues.

We are also posting a free HDR post-processing workflow for advanced users, based on Avisynth with InterFrame plugin, VirtualDub and enfuse. Check this discussion thread for details!

Tip: HDR and FPS control are available in Advanced mode – press the MENU button!
