If you shoot with a Canon EOS DSLR then you need to have a serious look at the Magic Lantern firmware.
Magic Lantern is a free software add-on that runs from the SD/CF card and adds a host of new features to Canon EOS cameras that weren’t included from the factory by Canon. – MagicLantern.fm
It’s supported on these model cameras:
- 500D (T1i)
- 550D (T2i)
- 600D (T3i)
- 650D (T4i)
- 700D (T5i)
- 1100D (T3)
- EOS M
- 100D (SL1)
There are so many features that are opened up, my personal favorite is the setting for time lapse, there are also a lot of great features that are added if you want to use your DSLR for making video. Tonnes of support documentation and a large user group to help if you get stuck or want to know how to do something. I was afraid of it a first since it is “unsupported” and I was concerned that I might brick my camera but the more I use it the more benefits I see.
