Show just histogram and audio levels

Hi All - is there a way to set the camera up to display just the histogram and audio levels when the 'info' button is pressed?

No matter how I set it up I get so much unwanted information on my screen I can't see what I'm filming!

I don't think canon allows that...
More useful would be histogram while actually filming! One would think it a simple firmware tweak?

Yes Brian that's what I mean - difficult to adjust for variations in ambient lighting while filming without being able to see the histogram - same goes for audio levels - I should mention it's the MarkIII

About the only possible solution is a nightly build of Magic Lantern... it's still way behind the stable versions for 5D2, 60D...etc; but does work. Also gives headphone monitoring via USB slot.
