Magic lantern update (with rack focus!)

I usually don’t cover software updates, but the latest version of Magic lantern is awesome! Here is the executive summary:

  • Custom cropmarks bitmap file
  • Live histogram while recording
  • Time remaining estimate indicator
  • Automated Focus pulls
  • Focus stacking
  • HDR exposure bracketing
  • Lens data (hyperfocal distance, DOF, etc)
  • Cleaner, multi-level menus that timeout automatically
  • Audio monitoring can be turned off during clip review
  • Internal mic can be used (must enable audio.mic-power=1 in config)
  • Output audio volume control
  • Configuration file can be saved to magiclantern.cfg

Yes, you read it right: Automated Focus pulls! Go here to read details. I am not seriously thinking about installing this firmware on one of my 5D. Look at this video demo.

Hudson is doing some impressive stuff. I hope Canon is paying attention to his work and implement some of these features in the next update.

Thanks to 5D User for the heads up!

Update: Read the manual here.
