Magic Lantern usage in academia
« on: January 07, 2021, 05:48:05 PM »
While preparing the application to Software Freedom Conservancy (see Applying for fiscal hosting for context), I was a bit surprised to find quite a few academic works mentioning Magic Lantern. I already knew about 2 papers mentioning Dual ISO, but apparently our software can be useful beyond the typical camera usage.

As such, today I've moved previous discussions and experiments related to scientific papers into this newly created Academic Corner - hoping something good might come out of this eventually.

I know, I know, too little, too late... ;)

Also military, spoke to a Recon and he used a 5D3 with ML for his reconnaissance work.

Just to let you know that ML is still used in academia. Click on alex' first link and filter by year 2021 for some papers published this year.

Nice to see Brian Greenberg's "Magic Eclipse" lua script in particular.

Magic Lantern is a too serious scientific project to be ignored by scientists.  Here is a recent example:

Congratulations to A1ex and everyone involved for their achievement!
