EOS-M / Re: Cases of EOS M + 22
« on: May 03, 2013, 09:06:59 AM »
Paul, so you did buy an M. Last I saw, you were mulling over one. I'm dying to try my new rig out, but Mother Nature says we must have a week of crappy, cold, rainy weather first. I did see the Canon 'half-case' that is shown in the booklet with the camera, that don't do nothing for me though. I've got an 18-135 IS STM along with the 22mm that came with the camera and am gonna mount the rig on a Cam Caddie Scorpion with my Marshall 7" field monitor mounted on the top part of the handle. With the M's handy HDMI out port, it easily connects to the monitor so I'm gonna see how the video does in this puppy. I bought an extra battery and a 128 Gb Sandisk Class 10 card. We'll see. Good luck in your quest for a case, let us know if you find one. Cheers!

I dropped $900 on the EOS-M package with the 22mm, the EF lens adaptor and I haven't even charged the battery yet. Why? Because of the bad press on the slow AF and the bad rumour of a firmware update that hasn't materialized. Today, I just ordered the EF-S 18-135 STM lens, with hood and Tiffen ND .03 filter because I had $250 worth of Amazon gift cards from Christmas. Damnit, I am now totallly commited to this thing come hell or high water. Like Paul13walnut5 here, I bought this camera to only shoot video because I have a 7D for stills. My wife is pissed at me for spending the money and not using the camera yet, so here I go. I am also watching MagicLantern closely as they develop their software package for the EOS-M and really want to see where it all goes. My video background goes back to the 1990's when Sony introduced the Digital 8 format and their first VAIO Digital Studio pc packaged with Adobe Premiere LT. I still have the TRV-103 camera, a VX-2000 mini DV cam, a recent model Panasonic AVCHD camera and Premiere Pro CS-5.5, soon to be CS-6. I'm gonna see what the EOS-M will do with my slight arrray of EF and EF-S lenses. When I shoot something decent, I'll be sure and share and enjoy the critiques!  ;). Happy Friday everyone.

WTF?? I paid $899 for that bundle and they don't even have a firmware update out for that shitty AF. Wow, what a sap I am. Go ahead everyone blast me. Are you you kidding me Canon? Dammit. I'm pissed.

Make sure the color space on your computer matches the color space you're using in your cameras. Also make sure the color space in your editing software matches all the above as well. For instance, we use Adobe RGB 1998 in our 7D's and have our D.P.P., Lightroom, Elements as well as our computer monitor's color spaces match. Then, as everyone has said, if you're not happy with your lab, try another one.

I hate to beat a dead, or dying horse, but what about the EOS-M? Don't get mad anybody, I'm just inquiring. Thank you.  :)

You're welcome. Cool website too. I like video as much as still photo, just finding time to do both can be a chore. Cheers!

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K
« on: April 11, 2013, 05:27:17 PM »
The Blackmagic Design cameras are pretty awesome for what they are and how they've burst onto the video market, but for us Windows-based PC owners without a brand new Thunderbolt input device, they're useless. I don't even think that a stand-alone SSD reader exists, so that puts the kibosh on my interest. As if I have the cash-ola to spend anyways!  ::)

Your video was good and eerie. Your "web" link is to an email link, not to an actual website.

Site Information / Re: Love or Hate Canon Rumors Forum
« on: April 04, 2013, 03:43:28 PM »
Personally, I like this site very much and the info, reviews, ideas and tech knowledge that resides on it. I think there are multitudes of different shooters on here that provide lots of different opinions. Sometimes there are insults and differences but, it's a great big world. Besides, how else would I find out about the firmware update for the EOS-M that's coming soon?  ;)

That is a great side by side photo comparison of your 1Dx and your 7D with battery grip attached on your TDP & Flikr pages. I don't think I've ever seen the 2 together like that and it's an interesting glimpse for those of us 7D owners who (a. can't afford a 1Dx & b. don't have a camera store nearby to check the beast out). I just keep looking at the two for differences knowing how much the 7D weighs and feels, etc. I bet the 1Dx is quite a handful. That's pretty cool, thanx.

Lenses / Re: EF or EF-S for 7D/70D

The EFS 10-22mm is also an outstanding lens as well. We are very pleased with that one.

I do stand corrected. RocklandDragon, I appreciate your responses and am surprised at the deal at Best Buy. Cool beans for you. Good luck with which ever body you do choose to keep and like everyone says, good glass can make a good camera a great camera, limitations aside of course. Cheers!  :)
