Because I recently got magic lantern I have been playing with all sorts of night photography stuff with the time lapse and the fps override. What I would like to do now is take a time lapse of the stars moving at 3 frames per second(or less if I could, but I don’t think the fps override lets you get any fewer) in movie mode but have the shutter speed be around about 1/5th to 1/3rd instead of being constrained to 1/30th. I have looked through the cameras ML menu several times and I don’t see anything that seems like it would let me do this. Is it possible?

I know that I can do something pretty similar using the intervalometer, but I like the idea of doing it in movie mode with the fps override instead.

btw, as a new member i just have to say, this website is great. i can't tell you how excited i was when i found it and how much time i have spent looking things up on it. the only reason i didn't join sooner is because every question i have had, has been answered here already.  thanks

I'm sorry you never got a reply, and apparently went away again  :'(

I guess the issue is, if someone knows how to do it, they tell you, but if people don't know, they just keep quiet in case someone else does. Since no one offered a solution, the answer is probably that 'you can't'.

It seems I am to late to help then. You can shoot at up to 5secs per frame on FPS override. I have a short tutorial on youtube.  Search for - Magic Lantern ISO and FPS Override feature demonstration

You might be late for his post - but not for me  ;D

Cheers for your video, really rather handy. I have been wanting to do some time lapse stuff but I take enough photos without that also hugely bumping up my shutter count... Going to have to give this a try...
