The team at Magic Lantern are always adding new and unexpected features to your favorite Canon video DSLR cameras and this time is no exception. HDR, or High Dynamic Range, video is achieved through the use of multiple ISO settings.
You will get two streams at half frame rate. For example, if you record 25p, you will get two 12.5fps streams. Interpolate them to 25fps and use your favorite HDR software to blend the frames.
The firmware hack will be released tomorrow for the 550D, 600D and 60D DSLR cameras. Read more here and here.
This is exciting but i will have to do some homework on the post process since its something i have never done before. I cant wait to play with it.
What about 5D & 7D
Yikes… interpolation though? Probably won’t get adopted on any professional level.
What HDR programs out there are ideal for this?
