looks not a bad proposition. No use for articulating screens such as the T3i 60D etc obviously (which I'm more inclined to use for video) but may be an option for my M and 7D.
Does the tripod fixing repeat, i.e. can you still mount the camera on a tripod with the screen frame attached to the camera?
Cheers and thanks for the heads up.
According to the images it looks like it does have a 1/4" tripod attachment on the bottom, so yes.
I'd still not mount a big heavy lens onto the camera because it's a pretty cheap mount. Probably just the lug embedded in the plastic and a screw embedded in the plastic on top. Put enough force or strain and the mount will just break. But for this price...that's what I'd generally expect.
Fair enough point, but my heavy lens has a tripod ring...
In that case, go ahead!
Although from the pictures Roger at LR has released with the 500 or 600 on the EOS-M, it looks really funny.
