Gov.uk - Government Digital Service Design Principles
https://www.gov.uk/designprinciples - still the best set of design principles I’ve seen. Love it.

Magic Lantern Alpha 2 on the Canon 7D
A couple of weeks ago I installed Alpha 1 on my 7D. No problems with Alpha 1 so I figured I’d give Alpha 2 a go - particularly for the dual-iso mode, raw video and timelapse.
It’s reasonably complicated to get Alpha 2 working. But, if you’ve got a hour (and some patience) then it’s well worth it.
To build Alpha 2 on a Mac follow the instructions from DenJS here: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7503.msg66864#msg66864
It’s reasonably straightforward.
But to process dual-iso images you need to do a bit more. You’ll want to compile cr2hdr and raw2dng. There are pretty good instructions here: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7645.0
It’s reasonably technical: you’ll need to be familiar with Terminal and happy to install Macports and Xcode.
While the instructions are very good I did need to make a couple of changes:
- update GCC_VERSION to the version you download (mine was 4.7.4)
- update ARM_PATH to the directory you download to
When it came to compiling ($ make) it failed a couple of times. Don’t ask me why, but I just typed make again and it worked. OK, fine by me, I’m not that technical.
To use cr2hdr you need to run it from Terminal.
To convert video there’s a very handy app: raw2dng (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5508.0)
The results - the timelapse is shooting now - I’ll upload some clips in the next couple of hours.
Edward Tufte. Always great to listen to this guy.
