No matter how things seemed when I got a package like this I would never keep it.  It MAY work and look OK but who knows a few days, weeks, or months down the road.  If there are issues you will wonder if it had something to do with how it was handled in shiping and even if you are sure it was handling you have lost your one chance to have something done about it.  Even if I had to wait I would get a replacement.

Glad mine from B&H was shipped FedEx!


I bought this deal and was happy when it arrived at the UPS depot..but guess what…
I have no idea how it managed to get sooo damaged in the depot…
And with B&H out of stock..i don't know if i'll be able to get a replacement soon.

That looks like it was underwater! Was it soaked?

I don't know yet. that was a photo sent to me by UPS. They have to deliver it to me.. But i'm also waiting for a reply from B&H on how to proceed with this..if i should accept it or if they can send me a replacement. I'm ok to keep it if the hardware is undamaged but i won't know until they deliver it to me tomorrow

Looks as if a giant octopus chewed it up and spat it back out. Even if the thing had weather sealing it would be toast by now. Wait for a replacement, won't be long (according to rumors there are warehouses full of EOS M collecting dust).

If you don't have the needs for it, I would ask for replacement. I like to keep all original stuff, including box + sale receipt together. I think it's easier to sell used camera gear on CL with original box & sale receipt. Buyers are willing to pay little more from original owner. That's just me of course ;)

Nikon 1 with latest latest firmware will AF-track with any Nikon AF-S lens attached via adapter ... and much better and faster than EOS-M.
::) ::) ::)
One of many reasons why the EOS M sucks and I won't get one, no matter how seemingly low the price may be.
Ignorance is bliss!

If that was my package I would tell the carrier to return it to B&H. No way would I sign for that.

I haven't received mine yet, but I imagine it is the same for the M. In the menu, go to the furthest right "gold wrench" index and look at the bottom. The latest firmware can always be found on Canon's website. Go to the page dedicated to your camera and look for the software section.

yup found it and it has the latest. the menu items actually changes depending on where the selector is. i was at [a+] mode which for some reason wont show it.

thanks


really like the touch screen interface . i could understand the appeal to a lot of users and why it is in dslrs. Fitting an EF lens would seem to really mess up the balance but it might work. Will see when i get my adter  ;)

Put camera in Av or Tv or P mode. Then go to menu. Press the last menu tab that looks like a wrench with four squares (next to the star). You will see an option for firmware with the current version. To update go to Canon USA and find EOS M. Click software and drivers and you'll see options for firware after you select your OS. Download file then follow the guide that comes with it.

2.0.2 is the latest one.

don't even ask for an RMA, don't even wait for a delivery to your house.
If the camera in that picture was coming to me, i'd call UPS NOW and yell at them and have it returned to B&H ASAP. If you sign it and accept the package, it's yours, and you may have more difficulty returning it. You cant return a water damaged camera to B&H. If you simply refuse delivery, then the camera was never yours and it's UPS' fault. Just refuse the package, and call B&H and set up another shipment.
Even if that camera was in perfect working condition I would NEVER sign for it.

The more I think about this deal, the more I wonder if - for those of us considering a "compact" backup - there is a logical reason not to buy one.   It can function as a compact with the pancake lens - and also as a backup to an EOS dslr without taking up much space in the bag.  Granted the autofocus has its limitations - and as I understand - much less so with the new firmware,  but the upside to this camera (especially at the $299 price point) appears to far outweigh the downside.   And at those times that a DSLR is just to heavy or bulky for the occasion,  this camera is likely to be with you. I clearly understand why so many people are jumping on the bandwagon.  It may not bring all of the answers, but it sure makes a lot of sense.

How will UPS deliver it? In a plastic bag? The box is gone, so you would have to box it and return it yourself.

WOW --- $299 with f2 22mm lens? I'll take one.

I was thinking about Fuji x20 or Sony RX100 as my over sea travel camera.

THANK YOU CR for posting this.

Received mine today ;D
Haven't open it yet...hope it comes with latest firmware.
