Cases FOR EOS M + 22
« on: May 03, 2013, 05:35:45 AM »
Any recommendations.

The canon one is ridiculously priced and is only half a case.

I was hoping for something like an ERC, but with the tripod socket repeated so that the camera can be tripod mounted even in the case.

I've had a look around but can't really find anything that fits the bill.

As an alternative a compact case would do. 

What are other M users using?  Real life experience only please, I can work google fairly well by now :o)

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!

you might get better responses if you change 'of' to 'for', since you're looking for a case FOR your camera,  not A case OF the camera.  I realize English is not the first language for many people on here.

A 'case of' a product is usually a unit measurement. You would have several units for sale within this larger box, the case.

Whereas you are looking a 'case for' a product, which usually means a protective shell or pouch.


I personally opened the message thinking it was someone talking about finding several of the units fresh in stock, like a surplus of them, indicating the camera would be on discount sale somewhere.

Thanks.  I shall blame my iphone.  Living in Scotland the Queens English does sometimes seem like a second language.

Paul, the M I am borrowing now has a case thaty says EOS M on the strap and also on the case, it could be the Canon one. It's made of leather and seems to be of good quality. You attach it in the tripod screw in. However the fit is not perfect, on the back the leather interferes with operating the scroll wheel with the thumb.

Nice but not great and if it's the Canon one you're talking about, then I guess too expensive also.

I'm using an old bag I had in my gear ciupboard, it's a jack wolfskin tassili M, has two compartments, main fits the M+22 front fits the EF-M adaptor with mesh side compartments that fit my battery and filter.

Don't know if these can still be had new, but it's a nice wee size and feels quite rugged, work seeking out.

I didn't take it personally.  My English isn't great (I'm Scottish) and it's even worse when mangled by my iphone.

But thanks.

Update:  I actually got a steal on a Lowepro Edit 110 which is a perfect fit for me.

For the benefit of ECRoyce, I meant a perfect fit for my camera.  Just in case you thought I could squeeze into a lowpro edit 100 bag.

I all you want to carry is the EOS M & the 22mm lens, then the LOWPRO Dashponit 20 works nicely.

I was think of a case as well, but when I look at the images of Lowepro Edit 100 it kinda looks big ... what is your experience, is it a bit too big for EOS-M?
