Magic Lantern has released version Alpha 3 for the Canon 5D Mark III, which provides a small update comprised mostly of bug fixes and tweaks.

New features and changes include:

  • Card test at startup
  • Histogram and waveform moved to bottom
  • New experimental display for focus peaking (extreme sharpness)
  • 16:9 bars for anamorphic preview
  • Focus box moves faster (not yet customizable)
  • After taking a picture and pressing Zoom In right away, you can scroll through pictures
  • Saturation boost when adjusting white balance
  • Warnings for bad settings (e.g. if you set picture quality to JPEG instead of RAW by mistake)
  • Dim the red LED while recording (make it less distracting)

Below is a look at some HDR video footage from the 5D Mark III using Magic Lantern firmware.
