EOS Bodies / Eos-M2 available now in the USA!
« on: April 01, 2014, 01:11:00 PM »
Canon USA announces that the EOS-M2 will be available in the US starting in May.

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., April 1, 2014 – Canon U.S.A., Inc. has announced the availability of the EOS-M2 to the US market now that inventory has been cleared of its predecessor the EOS-M.  According to Sakuichi Ishizukara, Canon’s Executive Vice President and General Manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A., you are being fooled due to the nature of calendar events, known as April fools.

Ain't I a stinker?!?!

Hey gang,

I noticed a great price on the canon speedlite 600RT at the Canadian Vistek store  Shipping to the US is without any border fees.  So my question is, what kind of warranty do you get? I know folks got the EOS-M and lenses from vistek. I wonder what warranty they got.  Thanks!

EOS-M / 8GB eyefi pro X card failing on wired transfers...
« on: July 16, 2013, 01:46:47 AM »
Hey gang..

I was using my one year old eyefi card in the M for starters.  I rarely transfered off the card when I used it on the 5D, it was only for wireless transfers.  I've had the card error out the 5D at times, but not fail at transferring data. 

This pertains to a movie file shot on the M.  WHen I view the movie on the M on the same card, it plays throughout. When I try to transfer the data to my computer via wire, it fails, with the mac os saying that it can;t complete the transfer because the data is unreadable.  this happens at 1min 37 seconds into a 7 minute program.

Next I'm going to try transfering wired fromt he camera itself since it can play the whole clip through.

  Again, the movie plays fine on the M, but fails at copying wired to the computer. 

Prior to this i had the card unmount repeatedly from a $9 reader that I got with the camera via B&H. the reader had many good reviews on B&H:

This has only happened with EOS M files but I've only had the camera for a couple of days and the card works fine in reading and recording files onto the camera natively.  When I used it on the 5D, i only used it to wirelessly transfer and never reallyused it on a reader.

The card was low level formated on the M prior to use. It wasn't near full at all.

It has the latest firmware from Eyefi.

Thanks for any feedback.  I'll keep the gang posted. 

EOS-M / Some Tom bihn bags that may fit the M:

I'm a fan of Tom bihn bags because they are well made here in the USA.

Some that might fit:

This is a doggie treat bag, but it looks like it may fit our camera with a wrist strap. Or at least as a lens swap bag:

He also has these messenger bags in small medium and large:

These are designed to fit iPads and MacBooks respectively. Good if you shoot with eye fi cards:

Waist bag with a lot of mount points that can hold an M.

EOS-M / Zoom to focus feature on EOS-M
« on: July 14, 2013, 02:56:27 AM »
Hey gang,

I hear people hear mention a zoom to focus feature on the M, but I have yet to find it.  Any suggestions?

Btw, since I shoot RAW, I set the picture mode to max sharpness to help with focus.  A sort of poor man's focus peaking. :'(
