Damn, I made a little Soundtrack for the beginning and the end, but I forgot to make it into the render :/
A basic Tutorial on my approach on the HDR-Feature of the Magic Lantern-Firmware.
Please understand this guide as a more technical one and excuse that I had to cut Examples and so on, but I only can upload 500mb/week here and 30min are already a bit too long for such a heavy Compression.

And in good Tradition I of course forgot to mention several things. Sorry for that!
When shooting HDR, one Clip will always get a higher ISO, which may result in heavy Noise (like a 3EV 400/3200). Reducing Noise with e.g. NEAT or the little Median-Trick can do a good job and result in even less Artifacts and an overall better Videoquality.
