But I would have really liked Canon not to cripple USB TETHERING / Remote Control [remember, they had to put a sticker on the respective symbol already printed on the EOS-M box!] ... using Canon Utilies/Remote.
And additional built-in WiFi would be even better.
I'm pretty sure the only feature stickered-over on my (UK) EOS M box was the 3-10x Video Crop/Zoom that they removed from the review/pre-production models' firmware... are you sure yours had that printed?
Ooops .. Thanks for the correction ... You are right.
Got mixed up for a moment with all the features canon decided to omit or cripple on the eos-m ...
what ML was saying about the M and tethering was because they went with a higher framerate in liveview, that made it incompatible with canon's pc software for tethering.
however - the workaround would have been no liveview feed and usb tethered control.
that all being said, M2 supported wifi tethering - i doubt M3,etc if what ML is saying is accurate will support usb tethering.
for me anyways, all canon's from the beginning of time had some form of wired tether. that needs to be on the M - frankly it can be (and should be) the rebel plug. between eyefi and wifi tethering options, that's more than covered.
the only issue i have with wifi tethered is that there is no ASCOM ability with that.
EyeFi cards are a quaint joke for very many situations. THE WiFi solution, and I have tried them all, is the CamRanger and all it needs is the simple USB tether capability. The EOS-M would be the perfect remote camera, silent operation, lightweight so needs little in the way of support, excellent sensor etc etc, but we can't use it because of the crippled USB tethered support, even though the camera was fairly universally panned (though I like mine) having a very capable small remote that takes EF lenses would have opened up a different market segment for the much maligned M.
