EOS M2 Shows up in DPP Literature
« on: September 21, 2013, 03:54:44 PM »

The EOS M2

The new version of DPP may have outed the upcoming new EOS M camera. It will have the sensible name M2 by the looks of it. I’m not too sure following the Leica naming scheme is a good idea.


From under the Auto Lighting Optimizer help section


If the shooting result is dark or the contrast is low, you can use the Auto Lighting Optimizer function to auto-correct the brightness and contrast, and obtain a more pleasant image. You can also change the settings of the image shot with the camera’s Auto Lighting Optimizer function. This function is compatible only with RAW images shot with EOS-1D X, EOS-1D C, EOS-1D Mark IV, EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 6D, EOS 7D, EOS 70D, EOS 60D, EOS 50D, EOS REBEL T5i/700D, EOS REBEL SL1/100D, EOS REBEL T4i/650D, EOS REBEL T3i/600D, EOS REBEL T2i/550D, EOS REBEL T1i/500D, EOS REBEL T3/1100D, EOS M2 and EOS M.

All these mixed messages, the stress is killing me, new M, no new M, new M...

Arrrrrghhhhhhhh!

Just kidding.

But does it say if it'll be full frame and have a viewfinder and 70-200 f2.0 pancake?

Its coming, and likely designed, but the introduction timing might be in question.  I suspect that long lead parts and tooling are on order or complete, assembly might be under way for sub assemblies like shutters, circuit boards, etc.  Some of those things need up to a year lead time, hard tooling is a particularly long lead item.  Sensor might be the one from 70D though.

True, but DPP software has a shelf life of what, 3 months, 6 months between versions?

How do we know Canon didn't start the tooling process 11 months 3 weeks and 6 days ago?

It seems likely that it started about a year ago.
 
Regardless of when the tooling started, release announcements are going to be determined by Marketing and not by subcontractors doing tooling or software people creating DPP.  There is a development schedule, and it undoubtedly includes a production schedule.  Actual announcement and release dates can be moved up or moved out based on Marketing decisions.

The M2 is mentioned multiple times in the DPP Help info.  Searching for M2 yields this...


So, it's definitely not a single instance.  It's mentioned all over the place.  Definitely not an accident!

Not an accident, true.  There WILL be an EOS M2.  But that's not exactly news, is it? 

Personally, I think we'll see it available for the holiday shopping season.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Maybe Canon thought that it can release a M2 on time. Even there is a M2, it may still have disappointing specification. Again, this is Canon, no expectation means no disappointment.

Let's be honest.  All three people that wanted an EF-mount mirrorless camera already bought one.

awww... you were almost there. Try a little harder and it might be a tad bit funny.

I am not so sure about that after the release of the 70D. Dual pixel AF?

Yes...

This makes big sense from a marketing point of view, especially with a mirrorless which is aimed at the masses. In that case I don't expect it to be a model that sits beside the current M, but rather its descendant.

Canon could learn from Apple when it comes to leaking rumors.

Reading the tea leaves, I think it's actually medium format this time around. No viewfinder, but you get a nice black towel  (with a Canon logo and red stripe border!) to drape over your head while taking the photos. Pancake as described. Same 64 point AF as 5D3 and 1Dx. Marquee feature is that the focus confirmation "beep" is now changeable to a ringtone of your choice as well.

Hmmm. Which version of DPP are you guys having? I have v3.13.0.1, which is the latest I find when searching under my 5D3 on software.canon-europe.com, and the help file have zero hits on "M2" and "EOS M2".

Sure, I can search for "EOS" to get a bunch of hits and then replace the keyword text to make it look like I search for M2.

Edit: Aha. on the www.usa.canon.com site, I can find DPP 3.13.45 (sic) and EOS Utility 2.3.25. Why don't Canon just release the b***** software to all the cameras at the same time? It's not like they make separate releases...
