Magic Lantern
« on: August 13, 2015, 03:41:14 PM »
Installed Magic Lantern on my 60D last night. I wasn't going to, as I don't do much video, but then I saw a video about doing Focus Stacking with ML and that got me going.

If you aren't familiar with Focus Stacking, this means to take multiple images each with a different focus plane, then combine them in post. The way I've been doing this is using manual focus. ML automates this by allowing you to set the focus range, then steps through from one end of the range to the other, in however many steps you choose. And apparently you can combine that with HDR too.

I've looked many times at Magic Lantern, but always dismissed it for the same reason as you. As it happens it's not available for the 7DMK2, but for focus stacking I use DSLR Controller on my phone. this allows step by step focussing using the phone. The phone neds to be connected by USB cable, so effectively the stepping is done remotely just by tapping a button on the phone.
