Re: Any evaluation of MagicLantern?

One drawback of the RGB Histogram is that the graphs are calculated based on the JPG image and not the actual RAW file itself.

Thanks for the 6d guide. After a brief scan, it looks promising for improving my photography.

I'm an advocate of MagicLantern, and wonder if you have experience with it. I didn't see any mention of it in the Guide, but perhaps I didn't look closely enough.

  • Auto-ETTR that is very flexible and can be "tuned" for scene contrast
  • Histogram and blinkies based on RAW. Big improvement over UniWB and Picture Styles.
  • Auto Dot-Tune AF-MicroAdjust
  • Dual-ISO provides about 2.5 f-stops DR with some loss in resolution. Super for panos. It's greatly reduced my use of HDR.
  • Somewhat more flexible HDR bracketing.
  • Improved Bulb for night photography. Flexible self-timer and much longer exposures.
  • Reasonably flexible intervalometer, including day to dusk to night to dawn compensations.
  • Star trails and night time-lapse are a facilitated with Bulb and intervalometer.
  • Focus aids like zebras
  • much for video and audio that I'm ignorant about
  • much more that I haven't delved into yet
  • TMI? The Dev-Team are working on tweaking the CMOS/ADTG/Digic circuitry to fine-tune parameters, with potential for "free" increase of about 0.5 DR. My impression is Canon uses least-common-denominator params, and fine-tuning for an individual camera can be like "blue-printing" a race engine.
