Canon EOS M with EF-M 22mm STM Lens
By Sean Setters
 
I bought an EOS M back when retailers were slashing prices on Canon's mirrorless kits. Since then, I have really enjoyed having a compact camera capable of capturing high quality images. However, the camera has been relegated to fulfilling the needs of a "vacation camera" in my kit. Last week, that all changed.
 
That's when I installed a Magic Lantern nightly build on my EOS M. With Magic Lantern installed, the EOS M makes a great time-lapse camera. It's small, easy to set up and quiet. You also don't have to worry about the wear and tear of your mirror mechanism (because, coincidentally enough – there isn't one!). These features make time-lapse shooting with an EOS M ideal; unfortunately, time-lapse photography is not possible with an EOS M without a little help.
 
The fact is that no Canon DSLRs or mirrorless APS-C sensor cameras have a built-in intervalometer. Instead, Canon offers a wired controller to fill that roll – the oddly named TC-80N3. Unfortunately, the EOS M doesn't have the E3/N3 port necessary for triggering the camera via a wired controller.
 
But that's where Magic Lantern comes in. It gives you a built-in intervalometer (as well as a boat-load of other features). The intervalometer is fantastic and full of customizable options. On the downside, the nightly build I tried out isn't quite ready for prime time. The Magic Lantern menu sometimes disappears from the screen for no apparent reason while trying to change values or simply navigating the menu. But with a little patience and a little more persistence, the Magic Lantern firmware can really increase the usefulness of Canon's all-but-forgotten entry into the mirrorless market.
 
Using an EOS M loaded with Magic Lantern, an EF 17-40mm f/4 L USM, Viltrox EF-M to EF/EF-S Adapter, B+W Circular Polarizer, B+W .6 ND filter and a tripod / ball head, I was able to create the time-lapse for the following video (watch full screen in HD for best results):
 

 
For post-processing, I compiled the time-lapse in Panolapse and then created the final video in Adobe Premiere Elements 11.
 
Yes, I know the video is cheesy. But it's safe to say that a more significant project could easily be augmented by something so simple as a time-lapse captured by an EOS M. If I had installed Magic Lantern on my EOS M a little sooner, I probably wouldn't have wasted 400 shutter clicks on my EOS 7D shooting this behind-the-scenes time-lapse. So even though it might not be stable enough for a final release, it still might be fun (and useful) to play around with in its current state.
 
Disclaimer: If you install Magic Lantern, you do so at your own risk. The-Digital-Picture.com (or the Magic Lantern team, for that matter) is not responsible for damage due to use of non-OEM firmware.

The Arcade, Cookeville, TN HDR
By Sean Setters
 
First off, let me admit something up front – I'm not a big fan of most of the HDR images I see. Most of the HDR images I come across look too unrealistic or simply too over post-processed for my taste. But there are times when creating an HDR image makes a lot of sense. Indoor architecture is probably one of my favorite uses of HDR imagery.
 
A few months ago my friend told me about a location in town that I was completely unaware of. Last week I finally made a point to go see it. I brought my EOS 5D Mark III, Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 and a tripod.
 
The location, "The Arcade," turned out to be a building right in the middle of my hometown with a foyer that seems as if it were transplanted from a bygone era. As I would later find out, the building is now over 100 years old and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
 
The bottom floor was beautiful, but the second floor view seemed to provide an even better vantage point for a picture. Stained glass skylights allowed some of the midday sun to peek through the ceiling, but overall the light was pretty dim on the second floor. The extremely bright light coming from the 1st floor doors at the end of the foyer also presented a problem when using longer shutter speeds to expose the scene.
 
The extreme difference between highlight and shadow in the scene made it a good candidate for HDR photography. I set my tripod-mounted 5D Mark III to record a bracketed exposure (5 shots) and later post-processed the image with Google's HDR Efex Pro 2 plugin for Photoshop CS6.
 
In post-processing, I left the front doors fairly blown out because the brightness tended to draw the my eye to the center of the image (although I did dim its reflection on the floor). In my opinion, the blown out area also makes the exposure seem a bit more believable overall. And while it's an HDR image, it doesn't scream "HDR!!!" to me. And I think that's why I like it...
