I see Magic Lantern has an Auto ETTR module now - has anyone played with that?

Yes, I use it regularly. It has worked very well for me and I'm now happy to use much higher ISO's in my 7D than I was before.

It only works in Manual mode and I frequently forget to turn it off when I'm using AV and the camera gets really confused!

I've posted this before on another thread but it was taken using auto ETTR at 3200 ISO (that was the max I'd allowed it to go to) and would seem to indicate that's there's plenty of head room above that...I used to struggle with 800 ISO.

You can also combine auto ETTR with Dual ISO if that tickles your fancy!

that makes me wonder to try out ML on my 5D3. it's not a stable version though and hate to downgrade my canon firmware.

Same here, thus why I haven't loaded ML on my 5D3. :(

ML works fine on my 5D2 and I use it constantly, but after using the Auto ETTR for a while I decided that like auto anything I often don't agree with the choices it makes and then have to change them to the equivalent exposure with different parameters. I find it faster to use the Raw histogram in LV and the spot meter set to show a readout in EV below Raw clipping. I point it the brightest element and adjust in M until it reads -0.5.

  • Others had been seeing similar results, and very quickly word spread around that this was in fact a very effective technique.

    It's an old link, and the author's homepage states that the site's been under reconstruction for over a year.
