General Help Q&A / Aperture Blade Lock?
« on: July 09, 2022, 08:38:52 PM »
Hi everyone,

let me first explain what i do, in order for the question to make sense:

I create stop-motion-animation videos using my old trusty canon 60d!
The camera is tethered to my computer, using capture one to view the scene and trigger the camera. A flash is also fired via sync cable to light the scene. I do not use video recording for this - i take actual images - frame by frame!

One of the major problems i have is variation in exposure due to the aperture changing slighly from shot to shot.

Does Magic Lantern offer a function where the aperture blades are locked in place?

(PS: I can not use the famous "depth of field preview button"- trick since the camera is positioned lens facing the ground and i need autofocus for focus stacking at the same time)

Thanks in advance, and in general for making this great software!
