Auto Lighting Optimizer: EOS 5D Mark II & EOS 50D

The EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 50D SLRs both feature the new Auto Lighting Optimizer (ALO). This is designed to automatically optimize images by adjusting brightness and contrast while maintaining highlight details. ALO is available on both cameras in full auto and Creative Auto Shooting modes, but it can be used and fine-tuned in other modes. For anyone shooting RAW, ALO can be applied via Canon's Digital Photo Professional software that comes bundled free with every EOS camera.
