    Create my own preset white balance: tungsten, shadow, etc

    Dear all,

    I am new to Magic Lantern and there is something I would like to ask the experts in the forum. I have a Canon DSLR modified for astrophotography. I have replaced the IR colour correction filter by a different filter which still blocks IR light while allowing wavelengths from radiation nebulae to arrive to the sensor. Obviously, the camera now needs to use a custom white balance for normal daylight photography. My question is this: would it be possible to store in the SD card or camera a few shots taken under different conditions: daylight, shadow, tungsten, etc and then install them as the new preset WB options? In this way, I wouldn't need to create a custom WB for each of my daylight pictures and the camera would effectively be a dual astro-day DSLR.

    Many thanks for your help

    Thanks for your help. It's a Canon 1100D. I also have a 450D but I know there isn't ML support for that model.

    I think you will receive better answers in the official ML forum:  http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php
