As readers of my blog know, I post for cathartic reasons and in the hope that others may benefit from my slow progress in becoming a better photographer.
since I started writing Magic Lantern Lua scripts, I've 'suffered' from not being able to
dynamically handle the Lua drawing with the Canon drawing.
In the latest version of the Focus Bar (FB) script (download on the right), I've decided to adopt a different approach.
In this version of the script the FB is hidden at start-up.
expose the FB all you need to do is a greater than 3 sec halfshutter
press: the camera's led will flash. To hide the FB simply do another greater than 3 sec halfshutter
Thus you can turn the FB display on and off, allowing you to cleanly access the Canon menus, eg MENU and INFO etc.
