***Updated with Canon 5D Magic Lantern Firmware***

It seems everybody is after the HDR look these days. Now the lucky owners of some Canon DSLRs can shoot High Dynamic Range video with the new Magic Lantern firmware update.

So it has been a slow news day for FCP & FCPX recently and this popped up on a couple of sites and in an email sent to us. We first thought that we would be shooting HDR on our Canon 5D by the weekend, but no, this Magic Lantern firmware will only work with the 550D, 600D and the 60D. There is also a huge downside, the HDR is complied by shooting alternate frames at different ISO settings with the frames combined and 'tweened' in post. So forget fast moving action.
