I would like to hear how usm lenses track in video compared to the stm lenses. all the sample videos thus far have all been tested with stm lenses.

It seems as if this wont be for a new product, but some sort of software or imagine sharing platform. unless the advertisement is not taken literally.

If this is the case I may not be opening my EOS-M box until I near the end of my return period. between this and the adapter becoming a non-returnable preorder item, I am beginning to question the future of the mirrorless line. I don't want to own a "limited edition" camera not knowing the stability of future support.

That's odd. How do you buy anything? Canon may discontinue any of their stuff tomorrow, in fact they do it all the time. I got a 5DmII that barely supports the new RT flash system, but is missing a number of features (i.e. groups). What about the GPS hotshoe accessory I got for the EOS-M? Nope. Canon refuses to make easy firmware upgrades in an effort to get me to dump the camera and buy a new one. Annoying. At any rate this hardly counts as indicating the line is dead.

Canon won't discontinue the EF, or EF-S, lens mount anytime soon. The EF-M line has 2 lenses, and they may discontinue the mount if they discontinue the camera line. I feel very comfortable buying EF lenses and cameras because know the line has a long future. The future of the mirrorless seems sketchy at the moment. And Canon refusing to make "easy" firmware upgrades rarely makes your camera obsolete. The hardware becomes obsolete before the firmware, which would mean you have to upgrade your camera if you want the better performance of newer cameras. The camera can only be as strong as it's weakest link, and when that weakest link is the hardware it is time to upgrade. The fact that you question how I buy anything makes me question why you are on CR. Is the future not what CR is about? Why do we want to know these rumors? Do the rumors not alter your current purchase decisions?

EOS-M / Re: EF-M to EF Adapter Now Special Order
« on: July 10, 2013, 12:46:04 PM »
I ordered the camera from Amazon. The expected ship date is 1-3 months, so I was able to lock in the price while still allowing plenty of time to see how the market fares in the upcoming months. This will also allow for more time to see whether or not they're going to be releasing a successor in the near future and whether or not it will be worth the extra cost.

EOS-M / Re: EF-M to EF Adapter Now Special Order
« on: July 10, 2013, 12:34:04 PM »
Interestingly, it lists for $190 instead of the $150 it was a few days ago.
I guess they are partially covering for their "losses" on their recent EOS-M price of $299 ... I bet a lot of Canon dslr users have bought the EOS-M at $299 and I bet they would all want to use their existing EF/EF-S lenses with their newly acquired EOS-M ... Best time for them to sell the adapter at a higher price ... Smart marketing... I am sure they will sell like hot cakes.

Makes sense. Amazon price is creeping up, too.
Not only that, but there are probably going to be many returns on the camera. Many people are buying the camera for $299 just because of the price. They then may decide they don't need/want the camera and return it. If they buy a non-returnable accessory, they will be less likely to return the camera. Maybe this is their way of minimizing returns.

So the question is do I pick up a 7D or a 70D... I think I'm leaning still towards the 7D.

I may be looking to sell my 7D that I picked up back in January depending on how this camera performs.

looks like a cross between a 60d and a 7d

but will it perform like the 7D autofocus system with a non-dedicated AF processor?

EOS Bodies / dual digic 4s vs single digic 5
« on: May 01, 2013, 12:13:01 AM »
is the digic 5 a better performer than dual digic 4s? Considering selling my 7D while it still has value and picking up a 70D, when it comes out of course. I'm interested in how the two compare specifically in processing power for different features in magic lantern.

I'm sure I wont see a difference when running stock firmware, but will i see a difference when running ML?

1. highlight alert (i.e. default/or auto enable like canon 20d, 30d, etc) when viewing image with histogram

Or better Zebras like real video monitors provide: with settable levels, preferable one in white for highlights, one inred for shadows, one in blue for a selected mid tone level - indicating where in the zone system a part of the picture is.
Add focus peaking for everything involving Lv and manual focus.

magic lantern?

3. exposure hold (options to enable not to timeout as long as new exposure is choosen).  i believe that with this option, i would probably moving faster than now in Av and Tv mode.  for now, i have to use manual mode all the time since exposure would be canceled during the time that i am playing around with focus point(s)

the AE lock holds for 4 seconds on the 7D. I do believe that it will lock continuously so long as you press the button at least once every 4 seconds, though i have not tested this as i do not use this feature often.
