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?

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!?!

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

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...

To answer your second question, Surapon, you won't affect the quality of your original image if you save the reduced image under a different file name.  You will then have two images - the original, which will be intact, and the reduced version, which will be of reduced quality, as others have explained.

And I look forward to seeing some of these images!

Hi bainsybike.
I think you misread what I said, "a car so I could get OUT of London" NOT drive around IN London.  ::) Damn difficult to get to the Devils Punchbowl by train, or the New Forest! Yes I expect that there are railways near these places, but it's not about that it is about changing trains 5 times, spending hours waiting for connections, or plain convenience!  ;D

Cheers Graham.

A car so I could get out of London!

Better to get on a train.  With a car in London, you'll spend most of your time in traffic jams.

That's true, but even driving out of London can take an hour from the centre. That's when the traffic isnt too bad! If hiring a car, its better to oick one up from close to an outer London tube station somewhere.

Just what I was going to say!   ;)
