For stills, were you using the "touch shutter" or the button to shoot? I haven't tested my EOS M or used it extensively yet so I haven't quite fugured out the best way to shoot with it. Very nice images and video. I was stoked to see the real world examples you posted.

Our crew just did a promotional video for a modeling agency's website with their top 12 models. Of course we had pro equipment but I decided to use the EOS M as a "B-roll" and stills camera. I have the 22mm and 18-55 lenses and the EF lens adapter but for about 80% of the shots, I just used the 18-55.

It worked better than I expected for such a small camera. Very sharp and clean when its properly exposed. I got alot of shadow noise but I get that problem even with my 5D mkIII. Blackout time is pretty long compared to a dslr but tolerable. One of my main gripes: there's no way to set a specific Kelvin for the white balance (I needed to match with the other cameras). Video worked very well, especially with the IS on the 18-55 when I was handholding it.

For stills I shot with raw+jpeg but I'm just gonna upload the jpegs (cropped/resized/unprocessed) and for the b&w shots, I just set the picture style to monochrome.

Victoria Falls is in Zimbabwe in Southern Africa.

OK, so you got me. I see sky, clouds, greenery, rocks, and water. So where exactly did Victoria fall?

It sure is an awesome place. You need to go there soon as people have been moving and stealing rocks. Everytime I go one or two rocks that I've shot in the past have disappeared and all that's left are their tracks. Another sad part is that there are people who have driven their vehicles on the playa with leaving tire marks.

Awesome location and shot!  I would love to go there.

I took a few friends to Racetrack Playa for a weekend camping trip and here's one of the shots from that weekend. I left my white balance to cloudy by mistake but I kind of like the colors it produced so I didn't even bother correcting it in post.

I would go with Manfrotto. You could get an aluminum tripod for about $100.

Very, very nice shots! I was there too over the weekend showing my friends around so I wasn't really able to shoot a lot.

I was also there a few days before Christmas when there was a lot of snow. I wished there was more snow over the weekend, but I guess Global Warming has changed that!

I only used 1 lens the entire weekend: TS-E 24mm 3.5L II. I didn't even bother using other lenses. I think those who were shooting with 70-200mm were there for the Fire Falls near El Cap.

Here's one of my shots from the weekend.


I just came back from Yosemite. I have to admit that February is now my favorite month to visit that region. The valley floor is still a bit busy, but the hiking trails are pretty quiet. I was not able to see the Horsetail Fall's Fire Fall due to it being cloudy when I went to watch it. There were well over a hundred photographers there waiting to catch a shot though! Anyhow if you have the option too, I would highly recommend staying a weekend in Yosemite during the month of February. Just don't wear tennis shoes!!!

I did notice that about 80% of photographers were walking around with a 70-200 F2.8 (canon/nikon/tamron/etc.). For the life of me, I could not figure this out! For my entire trip, I was constantly reaching for my 14mm uwa lens. If that was not on the camera, the 50mm was. I only put my 70-200mm on my camera 3 times over the course of the trip.

I do understand wanting that focal range for the waterfalls when observing from a distance, but these lenses were everywhere. Does anyone know why everyone in Yosemite has that lens attached to their camera 24/7???

You should go to False Kiva in addition to Mesa Arch next time you go to Canyonlands. Here are 2 shots I took in November when I went.

Mesa Arch at Canyonlands National Park. Touristy part of the park but it's still a cool location.
