General Help Q&A / Re: 5D Only Bracketing from -2 to +2...please help
« on: February 18, 2014, 09:03:14 PM »
Thank you for the followup....

I have the original 5D.

I did place the camera on manual mode. And I allowed the ML to decide how many frames to take. This seems to have worked!  :) The ISO and Aperture have remained constant, only the shutter speed has changed. I also made sure that my lens is set to manual focus.

I took an interior shot and ML fired off 12 shots. (Better to have too many, I can delete those I do not need). So this seems to have worked. A great dynamic range, much better than the -2/+2 for my camera.

One more question please....

My camera only has a 10 second timer setting. Is there any way to over ride this somehow and just have a two second timer?

Thanks again to all that have helped.

Dave

I did review the user guide and I still do not understand what I (or Magic Lantern) might be doing wrong.

My assumptions were as follows: My 5D only brackets from -2 to +2. So I thought that by installing Magic Lantern and setting the number of frames to 9, Magic Lantern would somehow bracket from -4 to +4, (I've set 1EV increments). . Am I somehow understanding this incorrectly? I did try the manual mode but that doesn't help. Any advice the kind folks on this forum could provide is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

If I use manual mode, how will that keep the aperture constant through the entire series of photos so depth of field remains the same?

I installed the Magic Lantern on my Canon 5D following instructions, including updating to the proper firmware. I first set the camera at Aperature priority. On the Magic Lantern menu I set the bracket type to exposure TV (so that aperature remains constant). I set the frames to 9. The EV increment is set to 1. The sequence to 0, -, +, -, -, +, +. (I chose this from the three listed options). I have ISO shifting and postscripts turned off.

When I attempt to take a photo, the camera only brackets from -2 to +2, which is the Canon limit for the 5D anyway. I thought the Magic Lantern would override that so that I would get brackets greater than -2 and +2. I may be misunderstanding the capabilities. If anyone can shed some light on this I would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance for your help.

General Help Q&A / Does Magic Lantern Support the original 5D ?

Dear Folks,

I thought that I read that Magic Lantern supports the original 5D camera. However, when I go to "take me to downloads," I only see the 5DMarkII. I'm confused. Can anyone shed light on whether I can use Magic Lantern with my 5D?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.
