Magic Lantern Firmware Wiki

Magic Lantern Firmware Wiki
Magic Lantern Firmware Magic Lantern is a software enhancement that offers increased functionality to the excellent Canon DSLR cameras. We have created an open framework, licensed under GPL, for developing extensions to the official firmware. Magic Lantern is not a "hack", or a modified firmware, it is an independent program that runs alongside Canon's own software. Each time you start your camera, Magic Lantern is loaded from your memory card. Our only modification was to enable the ability to run software from the memory card. Frequently Asked Questions What is it? Magic Lantern is an enhancement atop of Canon's firmware that frees your Canon DSLR, allowing you to use many useful features. Is it only for video?

What can I do to help? Where do I report bugs? For general tech-support, join the forum.

HDR (High Dynamic Range) Photography Resources and Tutorials HDR Photography Resources: Software and Tutorials part of The Bay at Portofino by Trey Ratcliff High Dynamic Range photography is a method used to produce images that try to recreate what the eye sees in a scene that has a wide dynamic range of light to dark tones that cannot be captured by today's cameras in one image. Even though the latest camera models do a great job capturing evenly lit scenes, there is still much room for improvement in high-contrast scenes. If you take many landscape, architectural or other high-contrast photos, you will immediately realize that you cannot capture very bright and dark tones in one image.

CHDK in Brief CHDK is a firmware enhancement that operates on a number of Canon Cameras. CHDK gets loaded into your camera's memory upon bootup (either manually or automatically). It provides additional functionality beyond that currently provided by the native camera firmware. CHDK is not a permanent firmware upgrade: you decide how it is loaded (manually or automatically) and you can always easily remove it. Please see the FAQ, CHDK for Dummies, Firmware Usage page and the One Page Ultra-Quick Users Guide, as well as other pages on this wiki, for more specifics on supported cameras, details of features, scripting, downloading, etc. 1. Why I Chose to Invest in a C300 over a RED MX(or a SCARLET) - Blog - Alex Wagner After lots and lots of deliberation, I finally made the decision to invest in a new camera. To be exact, I bought a Canon C300 with EF mount. I have been agonizing for almost 2 months now over getting a C300, a used RED MX, or putting together a DIT cart. I've owned a 7D for a couple of years now and my hope was that purchasing a higher end camera would help me get better work/less run 'n' gun videography-type gigs, or at the very least, provide me with another stream of income through rentals.

Canon HDSLR USB Follow Focus [UPDATE] View Factor was the first to announce a USB follow focus for Canon HDSLR cameras. Overcoming the challenges of Canon’s USB focus control has proven to be a huge undertaking. Their original projection was late summer 2010, but that seems to have been pushed back. It looks like another person has taken on the endeavor of building a USB follow focus. They look to be in the manufacturing phase. Wonder Object: Playful Mechanized Objects by Gary Schott I was unexpectedly delighted by this documentary short on jeweler, artist, and metalsmith Gary Schott who creates these small kinetic sculptures that produce tiny, intimate gestures. The attention to detail in each piece is astounding, from the early detailed sketches and balsa wood models, to the selection of materials, and even the color of fabric—all to create a tiny device, the sole purpose of which is to gently evoke a smile, to express, in the words of the artist, an action of love. The wonderfully produced video was shot and edited by husband and wife filmmakers Mark and Angela Walley of Walley Films out of San Antonio, Texas. (via junk culture)
