Sorry if I snarkily insulted you Dustin, I do hope you'll forgive me. I gues it was un-professional of me to insult a fellow New Yorker. I bought my M full original price to shoot video only. My 7D is just fine shooting stills and I'm strong enough to lug it around all day long. The piece of crap M sits on a shelf, lifeless, what a waste of money. The pathetic AF is horrible unless you're shooting a still or slow moving object of considerable size. I even popped my $2500 70-200 white monster on it and it couldn't find the object I pointed it at. My business partner is curious to see how it works with LensBaby lenses. Good luck there. Keep up the great work man and don't take me seriously, I tend to be critical at times, my bad. Sorry again.
"I typically post them in conjunction with a comment on either functionality or a lens combination not really addressed in the review. The pictures are typically processed because I am just posting links to pictures that I have shared on Flickr that reflect my view/brand in the marketplace (one that has served me well, I might add). " So you're just using the forum to showcase your work.
"This particular review has had very little discussion" I wonder why?
"interest in the camera when it went on the firesale has diminished for the present." Ya think? It's only been out for 16 months.
How's the autofocus in video mode on moving objects, like an animal moving across the plane of vision?
It is my understanding that once you upload your hard earned images to facebook, they become property of facebook. Also, if you upload some nice large hi-res copies of your images, then your new 'friends' can just "Right-Click, Save As" to their computer and now they don't need you anymore, much less are they even gonna think about BUYING the image they just stole. Just thinkin' here....
Somewhere out there Mark Zuckerberg's smile just got bigger. Damn shame Canon has to jump on HIS bandwagon to sell more products to the kiddies out there whose shallow and selfless lives have to be revealed in utter detail on the internet. I wonder how much crime can be directly related to social media sharing and how young will kids get, posting pictures and thoughts without parental guidance? Hey! Maybe they are working on the Anthony Weiner edition as we speak!
Ivan, your reviews were very informative and fun to read. Your photographs are fantastic, I really like your 'display' of colors, for a lack of better terms. I can't describe how they look to me, but I really like them and all your examples. Like Paul, I also am a new owner of the EOS-M and am itching to get out and test it's video capabilities, which I bought it for. Thanks again for sharing your reviews here. Eric
I guess we want our cake and a lightweight cake too. Thanx for the tech response, as always, much appreciated. Who knows what we'll do, besides keep shooting with our current awesome equipment. Have a good weekend.
Neuro, have you used the 400 f2.8 and the 500 f4 and if so, why is the 400 roughly 4 pounds heavier? Is that 2.8 glass that much of a difference? The 500's are BIG and heavy, we'd like to get 400's but the weight....phew! Not to mention, the price...
