In this video Franklin shares some insight on how he approaches to photograph landscapes and cityscapes. In the 1st part of the video he talks about what equipment he uses and why. later on the video, he goes on location to photograph the Miami skyline and talks about his camera settings and gives additional tips on shooting cityscapes. In the following video I will go over the editing process.

Hope you guys like it! here are some sample images of my work:

In my opinion the 100L is better than the 135L at everything, except that the 135L is F2 one extra stop a more creamy bokeh. No Macro capibility on the 135L though. They are both super sharp. Here is a shot a took today with the 100L

like a lot of us I dismissed this camera because of all the bad reviews. I found one for a very good price and I had heard about the upcoming firmware update, so I bought one. I must say that even though I own a 5D III with a lot of L's, I am very happy with the camera. Here is a shot i took with the 22mm lens and the EOS M totally wide open at f2

I've had mine for a couple of weeks now. I bought it as a successor to my 30D.  My opinion?

 - Autofocus - I'll deal with this first. If you're experienced with a DSLR you quickly learn how to work around the M's limitations in that department. I shoot my daughters sports (equestrian, soccer, etc..  ) and I'm getting better pictures out of the M than I did with the 30D. Read the manual, or, there's a very good YouTube video out there explaining the workaround.

 - Buttons/Menu - Again, if your experienced shooting in manual, or AV mode, with a Canon DSLR, it is really easy to use the touch screen menu. I find it just as easy... in a different way. For those having problems - Read The Instructions for God's sake!  I think that a beginner might find the touch-screen menu a bit overwhelming. One drawback is the body is so small that it is easy to accidentally change settings just by holding the camera.

 - Viewfinder - Personally I don't miss my dim 30D viewfinder, and on the M I can pinch-to-zoom with the viewfinder to fine-tune manual focus, which is an amazing feature once you try it.  The LCD screen brightness can be boosted to make shooting in the sunlight better.

 - Lenses - I've got an investment in 'L' glass, so I bought the EF lens adapter. I don't notice any autofocus difference between the native lens (17-55 kit lens) and the EF70-200L, or the EF-135L. If I didn't already have the EF lenses though, I doubt I would have purchased the M.

 - Picture Quality - I get the picture quality of a 60D/7D for a fraction of the price (499 $CAD with the 17-55 IS kit lens and flash). What's not to like.  Noise reduction at high ISO is very good.

 - Battery - I admit it. Battery life sucks. Especially since you have to crank up the LCD brightness when outdoors. You have to get a second battery.

The more I use the M the more I like it. Yea, the autofocus is slow, but actually it is almost on par with my old 30D. I love the small size, low weight, of the M.  With the 70-200 attached, it handles wonderfully by holding by cradling the lens. It balances perfectly - better than the 30D.

If the firware speeds up autofocus, it will be perfect!

can you please share the link to the youtube video that show the work around for the AF of the eos m? thank you!
