EOS-M / Re: Is the canon eos-m a dead end system?
« on: February 18, 2014, 11:21:43 AM »
What killed the first EOS-M for me was that it couldn't be used in tethered mode. I'm not sure why that was not possible - unless it was done on purpose to not compete with the dSLRs. The EOS-M2 supposedly can do it, but not sold. I think it would make a great camera for remote control (with an external power supply). Ok, it's a niche market perhaps, but each feature one eliminates results in more lost sales.
+1, unfortunately I bought one before I figured this out. Waiting to see if Magic Lantern can maybe come up with something, although their support for the m is pretty low.

It was a RAW, I tried it in Capture1, same thing.

Too bad, not extremely useful for backlighting. The flare, or reflections, happen quite often in back lit photos, although the grid like pattern occurs less often. Notice how the purple color is very wide spread.

I think I have to disagree, heres a 100% crop of what I'm talking about. That's not lens flare. Also based on the color of the flare it really looks like sensor refections to me. It's quite apparent in a lot of back lit photos, I've owned  a 10D, 40D, XTi, 5d Mark 2, T3i, and a few more, I've never seen anything like this except for photos from the M.

I was using the 40mm pancake with no filter. I don't believe it is lens flair, I've seen tons of lens flare using this on my 5D 2 and never had the grid like pattern. It seems similar to this

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Sensor reflections from eos-m

I've heard that some of the M4/3rd's and Sony Nex(Alpha) suffer from reflections from the sensor. I've had an Eos-M for a couple of months and have seen my first example of it from the M. I'm just wondering if anyone else has come across it, and if it will be a problem across all the short flange digital systems?
Cheers,

Actually after taking a look, it seems you've blown the highlights by having your flash too close? and tried to recover with a pink overlay? Maybe not highlights cause its in a weird place? You definitely did something dirty though.

Ps. You should check your red channels on your histogram they look really
 blown out. or maybe you've just pushed everything to red and your whites are way off? either way the pink in the rose doesn't look good.

Well. I've always found that ditching the equipment and playing with the light always gets me the best results. Light, maybe reflector, lens and camera.

Lenses / Re: Strange Lens Flare (Sigma 35mm + MRC filter)

One more cause I found it. It may be the mirror but it's a combination of mirror and lens I'm pretty sure, I never really saw it on the 35L. Maybe the curvature of the back element make s a difference?

I think it might just be flare, check this two pics. Flare both in and out of the frame, unless the mirror is reflecting in the middle as well as the edges.

Canon 5dmark2 with 40mm 2.8. Maybe related to focal length too? Different, but close.

Sigma 35mm on Canon5D2. I've noticed this effect a few times with this lens. With the Canon 35mmL never saw it. I have used the Sigma 30 1.4, sigma 10-20 4.5-5.6, and the 150 macro as well and all seemed to have disturbing flare. the 10-20 being the worst the 150 being the best. No filter, with hood camera turned top left.
