EOS-M / External (but not shotgun) Microphone for EOS M
« on: December 07, 2014, 02:31:38 PM »
...trying to plan a holiday vacation and looking to acquire a bit of video using the M.

I want to/need to add an external hot shoe-mountable microphone, and have identified three possibilities (thus far):

1. the well-reviewed Rode Stereo Videomic Pro (runs on one 9V battery)


2. the 'unreviewed(?)' Senal SCS-98 DSLR/Video Stereo Microphone (runs on one AAA battery)


3. the 'unreviewed(?)'  Polsen VMS-1080 Stereo DSLR/Video Condenser Microphone (runs on two AAA batteries)


(I like the cost of the Polsen...)

EOS-M / How Much Would You Pay...
« on: July 14, 2014, 08:45:41 PM »
...for an (shooting for the moon now) EOS M-style body...with

*focusing abilities of, say, a 70D

and a sensor with...

*high ISO abilities of, say, a 5DMkIII

For those of you that haven't bought an 'M', it is a blast to use...really really fun.

But it DOES focus slower than even a low-level Rebel DSLR...and, at least in my hands, its sensor isn't so great as far as high ISO is concerned.

But I've thought about this a long time.

I would pay 1.5K for a 'tricked out' M, that worked as well as a modern DSLR works (as described above).

It should be obvious that I love my 'M', warts and all.

Fire away!

EOS-M / Why I Like My 'M'

...and the lens that is on it most of the time (the 11-22mm). Good things come in small packages!

My first try at attaching photos here...

EOS-M / EOS M Flash Compensation
« on: December 18, 2013, 09:13:00 PM » of my favorite things about the Canon S95 is how wonderfully simple it is to adjust flash compensation: a press of the lightning bolt to turn on the flash, and then rotation of the dial surrounding the lens adjusts flash compensation.

What is the most straightforward menu or button way to adjust flash compensation on the M?

EOS-M / ...implications for high-end EOS M2?.

...good read here...and wonder how the rumored high-end M2's autofocus will fare...

EOS-M / ...suggestions for 11-22 M filters (55mm) are...
« on: August 08, 2013, 02:59:31 PM »

I think a plain uv filter for (mainly) protection will suit my needs for this lens...which appears to be a keeper. I don't think I will be using a hood.

Is there a resource for reputable lens filter reviews that I've missed? Can thirty dollars buy a filter that won't add or subtract anything much from the acquired image?

EOS-M / 2.0.2 firmware and third-party batteries
« on: July 12, 2013, 11:46:42 PM »
With an EOS M on the way, I anticipate ordering some third-party batteries for it.

Sometimes, when Canon releases new firmware for a given camera, the chip inside third-party batteries does not play nice with the new firmware. I have had real good luck with Wasabi batteries and Canon bodies and would like to place an order for some batteries for the M.

Can any M users pass on their experiences with third-party batteries--particularly those users who have installed the latest firmware (2.0.2)?
