Scripting Corner / Re: Bracketeer: perfect manual focus brackets
« on: June 16, 2019, 09:22:39 AM »
Hi, well I don't no where I am going wrong on this but I use the same EOS M (not converted) loaded the scripts onto the card ( tried twice) but I cannot get any of the information that is shown here
Camera in Manual Exposure mode, Manual  Focus, take three images at differant focus points but don't get any Red,Green or Yellow. I have Bracketeer and Get Focus Brackets loaded. Am I missing another componant please? Thankyou, Russ.

I'm not sure if this is the right part of the forum or not. If not, please move to the right place!

So.. I was using my Canon EOS 50D for shooting photos for 4 years now, with Magic Lantern.
2 Weeks ago, my camera was stuck on a Error which is expensive to repair, so I bought another used 50D from a photo store for 150€. The camera looks nearly new and shutter count is only 10.000.

I have 2 problems with this 50D, and I'm not sure if the problem is the 50D itself, or just a setting problem, or maybe because this 50D does not have Magic Lantern.
My old 50D had Magic Lantern and it was perfect, the "new" (but used) 50D does not have Magic Lantern installed.

So here are my 2 problems.

Problem 1 (and this is the big problem):
90% of the time, the LiveView shows exactly what the photo will be looking like.
But in 10% of the time, the LiveView shoes a much much different lightning.
For example:
I use the LiveView to set my brightness (aperture, exposure time, ISO), then I switch to Viewfinder, make some photos using Viewfinder, and look at the photos if everything is right.
In 10% of the time, I see a super bright view in the LiveView, but the photo is very very dark.
I have set all settings to the same as my old 50D, so I can not explain it to myself, why this happens.
Does anybody has a idea?!
Does Magic Lantern has something to do with a better LiveView?! But I also have one of these cheap 1200D (a very basic Canon DSLR), and even this camera always shoes the exact image in LiveView, and it also does not have Magic Lantern installed.

Problem 2:
Sometime I try to make a photo, but the shutter does not make the photo. It doesn't even focus.
First, I thought it's a focus problem.
But know I have the idea, that maybe just the shutter button doesn't work as easy as my old one and maybe I need try to press it harder.
I definitely need to test this first.
But my question is, does Magic Lantern has a function that let the camera focus better?

Sorry that my english is not the best, I'm from Germany.

I'm very thankful for every help!
Appreciate every tip.


It sounds as like Garry23 has said except for the shutter button not focusing that the camera has already been set up for back button focus and that is why the shutter button will not focus first then take an image. Russ.

you can see histogram for RGB channels also without ML, in canon preview only.
Using INFO button to change what is shown when in play mode on 600D (others models may use differen names like DISP for the button)
Hi yes I no how to view the RGB channels after the image has been taken (beleive this is what you are refering to?) but if you watch the video he can view Clipping Highlight warning on each individual RGB channel rather than just on the overall brightness of an image. Thankyou, Russ.

Hi, Just watched video on YT that shows how to see the individual channels RGB that may be clipped on a still image in camera  (after the image has been taken), Was only shown on a Nikon camera. I no you can see RGB in still photography with ML in live view but is there a way to see clipping after the event on a Canon camera? Look at around the 8 minute mark if you don't want to watch the whole video, Thankyou for any advice. Russ.

General Help Q&A / Re: Exposure Compensation in Manual Mode?
« on: March 11, 2019, 09:41:55 AM »
Hi, Exposure Lock only locks the exposure that is registered at the time so if you take the exposre from an evenly lit scene when you then have to move to taking an image of a BIF the bird is against a lighter background so comes out dark, in AV or TV mode you can tell the camera to expose over what it thinks is the correct exposure but keep the same shutter, ISO and Apeture if this could be done in M mode without altering any of those options that is what I am asking. Thankyou, Russ.

General Help Q&A / Exposure Compensation in Manual Mode?
« on: March 09, 2019, 07:29:23 AM »
Hi, On some of the up market cameras like the Canon 1DX ii  and I beleive the 7D Mkii you are able to use exposure compensation in manual mode and yes I no the question 'WHY would you want to use exposure compensation in manual mode?' simple, for example when photographng BIF somtimes that extra 1/3rd to even 2 stops of compensation can make a good image so is this a possible option via M/L for the lower end Canon cameras (in my case the 70D) Thankyou, Russ.

Hi, Is it possible with M/L to have in PHOTO  (not video)  Exposure Compensation in 'M' mode on a 70D or 6D with Auto ISO selected as you can set on the more recent cameras from Canon like the  7Dii or more recent pro cameras. Many Thanks, Russ

General Help Q&A / Re: How to view Enfuse Image on Canon 'M'
« on: January 28, 2018, 08:34:13 AM »
My only helpful thought is: why would you wish to do post processing in a camera?

Best to focus on capturing the 'best' data you can, ie bracketing, and then use Enfuse in, say, Lightroom, eg the LR/Enfuse plugin.
Hi, Garry, I do process my images in computer just that as I understand it M/L does an in camera image to give a quick view of what has been captured in the field but maybe I mis-understand it? Thanks, Russ

General Help Q&A / How to view Enfuse Image on Canon 'M'
« on: January 21, 2018, 02:04:10 PM »
Hi, After taking 3 X images the camera shows Enfuse Jpeg but where is it stored on camera or is it not? Thankyou. Russ

Hi, Maybe I am wrong here but as far as I understand it you cannot use M/L along with an external monitor you have to use the back of the camera. There are other options 'QDSLR Dashboard' or 'DSLR Controller' both have many options for Still and video via an external monitor. Russ

Here is a short film of mine containing timelapses, including city lights, shot with Magic Lantern in this way:

Thankyou, Watched it and very good. I assume that you do not use the intervalometer for the stills side of shooting? Thanks, Russ.

General Chat / Re: Magic Lantern Book will be released this autumn?
« on: October 18, 2017, 02:24:06 PM »
Ok just my 5 cents worth. Rather than a book it would IMO be great if there was an option to upload short video tutorials here by those who wish to help others both in Video and still photography.

Any help please?

Anyone else having issues with Advanced bracketing?
My setup:
EOS-M with the latest nightly (magiclantern-Nightly.2017Sep15.EOSM202)

Manual mode, manual lens, 6exp 3ev from 1/4000.

Most of the times I get the expected exposure range:

But not always.
Sometimes I'll even get more than 6 shot.
If I use Audio remoteshot (audio gain set to manual), I never get the expected range, just a bunch of random exposure values that changes every time:



Seems like a bug in the Advanced bracketing module, and using Audio remoteshot makes it worse.
Would someone please try it out, using at least 5 exposures?
I did reply to this in the other posting on the same subject by the same OP in the GH Q/A section but if it helps here.
Did a quick test also with the 'M' and got in first 6 images at 3 stops. 320,320,40,40,40 and 40 second try I got 320,2500,40,40,1.6 and 1.6

Hi, This will not help the problem with useing ML and Canon EOSU but if you want near the same options as ML offers via a computer have a look at QDSLDashboard for Windows
