I wondered if someone could explain a couple things in regards to exposure readings with Magic Lantern...
My current setup:
- 5D Mark III.
- Magic Lantern Nightly.2017Jan27.5D3113
- Video mode.
- Metering mode: Eval.
- ISO: 160, Shutter: 1/48 (180deg), Expo. Override : On, ExpSim: Movie.
- FPS Override: 23.976, Shutter fine-tuning: +0.84 ms.
- Canon Expo. simulation: On.
- Camera on tripod, unmoving.
So, the thing that is confusing me is that when I half-press the shutter button or press the 'info' button to have the canon live-view display it's metering ELI (Exposure Level Indicator), the indicator is more than -3 Stops on the scale while in video mode.
However, if I go into photo mode and look at the Live-view with the ELI it shows the indicator at +1 Stop.
Also, in the photo mode, if I look through the viewfinder at its ELI, that shows -2/3 stop.
So, I have three different readings for the exact same shot. I want to get the right exposure for RAW video, but I'm not sure what to trust. I also know I can switch on the histogram and waveform monitor, but I want to be sure that I haven't switched something on/off that's affecting these readings...
Anyone have any advice or want to verbally slap me and tell me where I'm messing up?
