I may have to look into Magic Lantern for the 5D III if there is one. I would really like to have a camera processed HDR in raw so I can further tweak in PS5, rather than the current jpeg only.

The ML team are working on it, at the moment its just in alpha stage so not much use.

Im not sure if you will be able to do what you want as far as HDR goes, but i haven't looked in to what they hope to offer yet.

This is how it stands at the moment.

Features:
- Card test at startup
- Histogram and waveform moved to bottom
- New experimental display for focus peaking (extreme sharpness)
- 16:9 bars for anamorphic preview
- Focus box moves faster (not yet customizable)
- After taking a picture and pressing Zoom In right away, you can scroll through pictures
- Saturation boost when adjusting white balance
- Warnings for bad settings (e.g. if you set picture quality to JPEG instead of RAW by mistake)
- Dim the red LED while recording (make it less distracting)
From alpha 2:
- Magic Zoom (zoom while recording), experimental focus peaking modes, ghost image, display presets
- Movie indicators, movie logging, rec/standby notification, force LiveView for manual lenses
- Gradual exposure in movie mode
- HDR video
- Brightness, contrast, saturation, display gain, color schemes, UniWB correction, upside-down mode
- Clean HDMI with pillarboxes
- Anamorphic and fisheye correction
- Image review tweaks (exposure adjust, remember zoom position...)
- Task and CPU usage info
From alpha 1:
- zebras, focus peaking, cropmarks, spotmeter, histogram, waveform, vectorscope, audio meters.
- card benchmark, debug info, stability tests.

I've been testing magiclantern on my 5D mkii for a few days now and so far I love it. Honestly I can't believe these features weren't already enabled. Image review quick zoom on focus point and magic zoom are outstanding and worth the trouble alone. I love both of those features. It also displays shutter count which I was not expecting and didn't think was possible without sending it to Canon.
