Yet another Canon EOS 5D Mark II hack announced – over exposure

by planetmitch1 Comment

Hudson continues to work on the Canon EOS 5D Free hack – even knowing that the Canon firmware update has been announced. He's working on features not included in the Canon firmware.

Have a tip, a video, or a Canon 5D2 product to announce? Give us a shout

Last night on cinema5d, he announced the “zebra stripes” for showing over exposed areas on the video.

“Today the 5D Mark Free software gets zebra stripes to show overexposed portions of the video. They are not recorded to the quicktime file. Eventually the threshold will be configurable and the stripes will be toggleable. The color and threshold are hardcoded right now and they can not be turned off.”

Here's the video demonstration:

With the announcement from Canon that full manual control is coming, the 5D Mark Free project can start focusing on these sort of enhancements, rather than just manual exposure control.
