Photography Technique / Re: Help me on using tripod
« on: July 10, 2014, 02:01:25 PM »
Good advice thus far. Also, if you setup on a slope, keep one leg as far down the slope as possible. I would not walk around with your camera mounted to the tripod from spot to spot even it may be tempting to do it because stuff happens and your camera likely would not survive the 'Rapid Acceleration-Deceleration Test' ;)

EOS-M / Re: Next official EF-M Lens
« on: July 03, 2014, 10:03:19 AM »
Digging around, there appears to be patent applications for the following Canon branded lenses...

16-120mm f3.5-5.6 - please ! Now !!!
18-200mm f3.5-6.3 - how very Tamron
22-46mm f3.5-5.6 - Presumably pancake, could be tempted ;-)

I agree  - the 16-120 could be a winner and the Tammy has #2 covered but I don't understand he last
one. It is an overlap of the 18-55 kit lens unless there is something I'm missing. Pancake you say ? Pancake zoom?

Yes, maybe something like http://www.dpreview.com/products/olympus/lenses/olympus_m_14-42_3p5-5p6_ez

Cool - thanks for that - I am not all that up on m43 gear - that looks like it would be an ultra compact addition to the M lineup.

EOS-M / Re: M+22mm for Travel/Street?
« on: July 01, 2014, 06:29:26 PM »
@Cory - I think you will like the M/22mm for street - it is a very discreet combo. I got a Flipbac G4 rubber grip for mine and it makes it much better to hold with one hand.

@fotofoll - Nice shots - very diverse subject matter. Are all of those shots done with the 22mm?

a 15-85 EF-M would be a winner

+1, the smaller the better
+2. I think 15-85 would be a one stop shop vacation/walk-around for many people.

Canon General / Re: Greetings ! New York , Boston Trip advice ?
« on: June 29, 2014, 10:44:13 AM »
A few years ago I went to Boston with my 40D, 17-55 and 70-200 F4/IS. I only used the 70-200 when we went whale watching, the rest of the time it was the 17-55 (amazing lens on crop).

My vote would be the 18-55 and 70-200 and leave the rest at home - assuming you want to travel light.

EOS-M / Re: Another EOS M grip
« on: June 28, 2014, 08:47:43 PM »
I just installed one of these last week. You peel off the factory rubber grip and replace it with the Flipbac G4. So far, so good. Nice handling and it is not too thick.

Here are some pics from a post on a another forum that shows what it looks like mounted on the M.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Macros with APS-C or Fullframe?
« on: June 28, 2014, 08:44:57 PM »
I see more advantage in APS-C by allowing wider depth of field. In addition, the articulated LCD touch screen makes it easy to work in unusual angles.
+1

EOS-M / Re: How do you carry your EOS-M?
« on: June 27, 2014, 08:52:41 AM »
My ER-E1 was under $30. (¥2900) bought on amazon.jp - is it really $50 in the US? Seems a bit steep. Usually stuff over there is cheaper.

It's not available from retailers in North America, has to be bought from HK (e.g., DigitalRev) or the UK.

I just bought one direct from HK for $40.42 U$D.

Here's a recent 50 art 1.4 shot of my daughter. How sharp is that at 1.4 and how lovely bokeh? LOVE this lens!




Awesome shot Viggo - demonstrates the capabilities of the 50A!

EOS-M / Re: Canon EF-M 55-200 f/4.5-6.3 IS STM Gets Official
« on: June 22, 2014, 12:31:50 PM »
Where are 135 2.8 and 85 2.0 and 50 1.4 for M? Come on Canon, we need some nice primes!
Yup

I don't see a lot of EFS primes so I'm not really surprised by the lack of EFM primes.

EFS primes don't make much sense to me (except a dedicated macro which they already made) but EFM primes would be small and that is a pretty clear advantage for the M system. Just look at the 22mm f/2, it's tiny. A 35 or 55 prime could be enticing if they were fast primes like 1.8 or even 1.4 (though I doubt it would be 1.4). I think a prime in the portrait range would be ideal to compliment the 35mm fov from the 22/2.

FWIW the FD 50/1.4 works really nicely on the M via adaptor. It's a nice focal length but the lack of AF can make it a tricky lens to use when taking pics of moving subjects. That's why I want to see a 50ish prime for M with AF.
I just tried my Canon 50/1.4 with the EF-M and turned off the continuous AF feature as it was hunting around like crazy. The few test shots I did seemed to hold promise and it is indeed a nice portrait length.

EOS-M / Re: Why I Like My 'M'
« on: June 22, 2014, 12:29:18 PM »
@Surapon - nice shots. What lens did you have on the M at the time?


Dear friend Jamesy.
on all trip= Out door shooting = EF-M 18-55 mm. IS with Cir. PL. 52 mm Hoya filter  all the times, Hoya Cir. PL filter for the high contrast in colors. Yes, On the Airplane, I use Rubber Hood 52 mm. and close to the airplane's glass window  to protect the light from inside the cabin not get the reflection in my photos.
But indoor shooting, I change the Lens to EF-M 22 mm. F/ 2.0.
Nice to talk to you.
Surapon

Surapon, do the Canon pinch caps work on the Hoya CPL's? I have a seldom used 77mm B+W that has a glide on cap that is a pain to use.

Which Hoya 52mm CPL do you use? There seem to be a variety from $23.90 to $98.90 on B+H.
