Street & City / Re: Famous icons in your city
« on: October 19, 2014, 09:52:48 AM »
Copenhagen, Denmark.
Known to be a very bicycling-friendly city.
So I selected this icon from Copenhagen.

So it's also tricycling-friendly?   ;)

Near Cardiff, South Wales, where they're just taking down the security fences after the NATO conference. Not sure whether this counts as Europe.

Software & Accessories / Re: Unsharp Mask in DPP
« on: August 11, 2014, 03:35:27 PM »
Has anyone found out yet how to set DPP by default to 'sharpness' instead of 'unsharp mask' for 5DMkIII images?

I find the 'unsharp mark' effect to be too strong and prefer the more subtle sharpening of the old fashioned 'sharpness' setting (default for my MkII).

So I always have to remember to 'select all' and then change the sharpening setting, would be nice if I could 'forget' about it  ::)

Thanks ;)

+1.  Same question for the M, please?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: DSRL Camera for travel

If i want i lightweight camera for traveling, i would never take a camera with interchangeable lenses.

Sure, but just because your camera takes interchangeable lenses doesn't mean you have to take a bunch of them with you.  I don't know where the OP lives, but right now in the UK you can buy an EOS M kit with 18-55 zoom lens and flash for £199.  There's nothing else on the market for anywhere near that price that approaches it for IQ, and it makes a great travel outfit IMO.
The 22/2.0 is only another US$120. It is a very good lens. This will make the EOS-M pocketable for a jacket. It will rake care of the low light situation.

Agreed, although it costs a bit more than that over here.  I love the 22/2, low light or not.

EOS-M / Re: Difficulty attaching lenses to my new EOS-M
« on: July 26, 2014, 01:22:16 PM »
The 22mm, on my M, seems particularly tight...

Mine too, but then there's very little surface to hold on to.  And both the 22 and 18-55 have considerably smaller diameters than typical DSLR lenses, so there's less leverage when twisting them home.  I think that's what you're experiencing.

EOS-M / Re: Need help.. LCD turns on but black!?!
« on: July 21, 2014, 02:38:17 AM »
Have you tried adjusting LCD brightness?

Edit....  Sounds too obvious to mention, but have you fitted a lens, and taken the lens cap off?

EOS-M / Re: The promised pics of the 18-200 Tammy
« on: July 20, 2014, 04:16:49 AM »
  The M + 22/2 does decently in low light (not nearly as good as my 1D X + 35/1.4L, though).

With more than 20x price differential, I'd sort of expect that. ;)

There's a thread on this already: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=15732.0

Lots of good suggestions.

EOS-M / Re: Next official EF-M Lens
« on: July 03, 2014, 02:16:13 AM »
Digging around, there appears to be patent applications for the following Canon branded lenses...

16-120mm f3.5-5.6 - please ! Now !!!
18-200mm f3.5-6.3 - how very Tamron
22-46mm f3.5-5.6 - Presumably pancake, could be tempted ;-)
I agree  - the 16-120 could be a winner and the Tammy has #2 covered but I don't understand he last
one. It is an overlap of the 18-55 kit lens unless there is something I'm missing. Pancake you say ? Pancake zoom?
Yes, maybe something like http://www.dpreview.com/products/olympus/lenses/olympus_m_14-42_3p5-5p6_ez

EOS-M / Re: M+22mm for Travel/Street?
« on: July 02, 2014, 02:17:48 AM »
Thanks and would my 70D software work for importing pictures onto my computer from the M (will my current EOS Utility recognize the M) without downloading the software that comes with it?

Yes.  The 70D is a later model than the M, so any Canon software that comes with it (DPP, EOS utility, etc) will work with the M.

Lenses / Re: Review: Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS
« on: June 30, 2014, 05:59:22 PM »
Bryan's closing remark echos my thoughts:

No other Canon or Canon-mount ultra-wide angle zoom lens can touch this one.

Far be it from me to argue, but he hasn't tried them all.  EF-M 11-22?

http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Canon-EF-S-10-22mm-f-3.5-4.5-USM-Lens-Review.aspx

I don't think the EF-S lenses measure up against L Glass, at least in my experience with them.

I did say EF-M 11-22, but you're probably right anyway.  It's just that he hasn't tried it.

The 22mm pancake is a very nice equivalent to 35mm full frame.  I'd like to see it joined by a ~30mm F2, 50mm equivalent.

Interesting, especially if the Tamron is available in the USA and the Canon isn't...
