As readers of my blog will know, my EOSMs are my go to travel cameras: one for the visible and one for the infrared.
I believe the EOSM, with Magic Lantern, represents the ultimate travel set up. Add in a cage, see previous posts, and a good travel tripod; and you have a really lightweight and small footprint to carry around.
I have just re-tuned my basic scripts to be more compatible with the EOSM, respecting its rather limited button setup.
The scripts are available on the right as 1m through to 4m, ie:
- 1m is the EOSM Toggler script, enabled via a 4+ second long screen press
- 2m is the Focus Bar
- 3m is Hand Held Helper script
- 4m is the ND helper script
I recommend accessing the scripts via the Toggler, as well as accessing ETTR, Dual-ISO or Auto-Bracketing. That is, once you have your basic ML settings fixed, eg your ETTR and Dual-ISO settings, you will hardly ever need to access to the ML menu.
The usual caveat from me being, I don’t do video ;-)
As a test shot, I just took a four image focus stack in our drive, with the aid of the Focus Bar. The exposure was F/8, ISO 100, 1/50s at EOSM 11mm. Processed only in Lightroom and Helicon Focus.
Here are the four input images. I focused at the nearest point of interest and used the Focus Bar to decide where the optimum next focus position would be.
And here is the final image after a round trip from Lightroom to Helicon Focus.
