Magic Lantern Alpha 3 for Canon EOS-5D MK III

Magic Lantern juices up the Canon EOS-5D MK III

The software team at Magic Lantern is very busy these days. Just yesterday they announced their team has successfully 'hacked' into the Canon EOS-M camera's operating software and will be coming out with enhancement to the camera soon.

Today, Magic Lantern released the Alpha 3 version of the EOS-5D MK III software. The new version comes with a few nice features :

  • 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, making it less distracting 

You can download the software here and visit the Magic Lantern site as well.
