has josef set up a website for this yet? and with this head, do you still need a Promote for HDR? (i am sure it was covered before)... and is the promote still the thing to have for bracketing etc....?
Hope you are well
Yes - for extended Bracketing on 5D2 - up to 41 steps afaik - you need the Promote because the camera only can do 3 steps.
BUT: using the MagicLantern "Hack" (which in real isnÂ´t a hack but resides on the memory card and can be ignored) the 5D2 can do
up to 9 steps bracketing, some automated focusstracking and some more delightful things. And itÂ´s free.
The controller controls the head and fires the camera. It doesnÂ´t override the internal camera-firmware. If the camera can do 5, 7 or 9 steps, the controller can use them. You set the stepping in the camera and the controller triggers them.
It can write the XML in a way of registering ONE trigger per location - whilst the camera fires 9 times and you process them to ONE HDR-tonemapped finally.
Or it can register each release seperately per location - so it tells APG to place 9 images per location.
P.S.: JosefÂ´s site should be launched yet - heÂ´still on vacation so maybe they wait untill heÂ´s back.
