EOS-M / Re: How do you carry your EOS-M?
« on: June 24, 2014, 07:43:39 PM »
Recently bought a Hama Nashville 130 bag @ € 30 or so.

It fits a larger M-Kit ... body + 18-55 + 22/2 + EF-S 55-250 STM with adapter attached.
There is still room for an 11-22 :-)

Instead of the 55-250 telezoom there would also be room for a speedlite .. 430 fits easily; 600EX only folded up

If I get round to take some pics of bag with content I'll do so.

EOS-M / Re: Is there a group anywhere of eos m owners?

... eos m. I have it since a week ...

Hello and welcome to "the M club" here. :-)

What lens/es do you use with your EOS-M?  EF-M  or also EF-S/EF via adapter?

Myself I got my M for about 1 month now. It's my light and compact "go everywhere camera".
ALso got the EF-M 18-55 kit zoom, EF-M 22/2.0 and EF/-M adapter, which I use fairly regularly to connect my EF-S 55-250 STM and EF 40/2.8 STM (pancake) and sometimes my EF-S 10-22 and EF-S 60/2.8 Macro.

In my experience, lenses with STM AF drive work better on the EOS-M  than EF/EF-S lenses with USM AF which was optimized for DSLR phase AF.

In preparation for the introduction of the 7D Mark II I already have buyers for my 7D. Based on the technlogies in the 1D X, 5D3, 6D, 70D, 700D, 100D, 1200D and even M2 it will be flagship APS-C body with all the technological trimmings one could ever wish for. It will outdo anything Nikon or Sony has in the market.

LOL.  ;D

Solid rumours I'd put any money on come along very rarely. I personally discount almost anything that's more than 4 months out from an announcement.

I still can't fathom why the camera makers are so secretive, when companies like Intel and Microsoft provide roadmaps into future announcements.


Actually most camera makers are handing out roadmaps when they announce new camera/lens systems like EOS-M and EF-M.

Definitely Fuji (X-mount), Panasonic (mFT), Olympus (FT and mFT), Samsung (NX), Sony (NEX/E-mount and A7/FE-mount) have done so.   

Nikon, Canon and Leica however are totally caught up in customer-unfriendly, arrogant behavioral patterns. 

EOS-M / Re: Which batteries do you use on Speedlite Flash 90ex?
« on: June 23, 2014, 11:04:57 AM »
eneloop AAA, beacuse they keep their charge much longer than regular NiMh rechargables. Especially since I use that small flash thing only very infrequently.

... On the one hand, it's very difficult to imagine any 7DII advancement of that magnitude. On the other hand, it's always risky to bet against the future when it comes to technological advancements.

I will hope we see that kind of advancement, but I will bet that we won't.

well, 24 MP at least 1 stop improvement for Noise, Banding and DR ... throughout entire ISO Range should be simple enough ... otherwise Canon should just purchase Nikon 7100 from Toshiba and put DPAF in an improved version (vs. 70D) on it. :-)

We shall see ...  ;D

"Global launch" of a product ... except U.S. ... does not happen very often ... a bit like "semi pregnant" :-)

Hehe!  ;D

Wow, now its clear: global launch of a new Canon lens ... Japan, all of Asia, all of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, all of South America, all of North America  ... minus the US.

All of you "not more than 299 dollars for the full EOS-M kit Yanks" must really have caused some hard feelings in Tokyo. They won't give you new EF-M toys any more. No, no, no ... You've been bad and Canon will punish you. Fat mirrorslappers is all you'll be served for dinner from now on.


PS: how stupid and shortsighted a "strategy" ...

DXO should
1. capture image of identical test target using 3 copies of purchased test cameras and the same optical bench
2. physically print the images using the same physical printer every time and exactly the same print settings
3. scan those Print-outs using the same scanner and scan settings every time
4. then present to us 100% views of the same, pre-defined image areas of those scans ... 1x Center, 4x halfway out along image diagonals and 4x corners

THEN i might start taking their test method seriously. :-)

I know the videos. Shutter sound seems minimal. But i have yet to see precise specs or detailed images of the shutter unit showing whether or not it is
A) a fully electronic global shutter free of any mechanical components
B) just a somewhat improved version of the A7 shutter with only an electronic first shutter and a mechanic second shutter.

While B is some progress over regular mechanical shutters, it is A) that i really want to get in my next camera ... The full monty, not some half-mechanical solution.

Sony's obfuscation and lack of clear specs leads me to conclude the A7S only has such a half-mechanical, quiet shutter rather than a truly electronic, SILENT and totally VIBRATION-free shutter.


DxO should know better.  It's not 'trolling' to point out that the 'Print DR' value is misleading and ludicrous, as is a 'Sports Score' based on the sensor alone, as is insisting that the 70-200/2.8L IS is better than the MkII version that succeeded it, etc.

Full ACK.

You could even take shots of the marshmallows that unicorn is crapping out as it flys around on it's magical cloud. :P

Hehehe! :-)

Unfortunately Canon's unicorns are of the non-aviatory kind. :-)

I don't think that any successor or replacement for the 7D will be incompatible with EF-S lenses.  That would just drive a lot of near-certain buyers down to the 70D.
