I want the grip for my M to come labeled EF-M 35 f/2.x and EF-M 50 f/2.x as pancakes. I really don't need a larger grip.

Special tape.  Put one on my s95 a few years back - its still there after lots of use.  Will have to look into this for my M.

http://www.kleptography.com/rf/

If they use VHB tape from 3M, it's pretty incredible stuff. I used some to attach an aluminum sidesaddle to the receiver of my shotgun (the bolts that came with it left it either too loose or pinching the receiver enough to reduce reliability of the semi-automatic cycling). After more than two years, exposed to extreme heat, extreme cold, lubricants and heavy use, it ain't comin' off. Doesn't even budge or flex. Love that stuff! Of course, I had to buy a roll (75', if I remember correctly), but I only needed about 6", so I'm always looking for a reason to use it. :)
Can you really take it off with dental floss?

Yes, that's part of the process of taking badges off your car - dental floss or fishing line.

Good to know! I don't plan on taking that sidesaddle off any time soon, but now I know how if I need to.

Thanks!

Looks as though you need to take the Canon grip off first.  Anyone know if you do, and if you can put it back again if you don't like the new one?

Anyone know the answer to this?

Update: I emailed this to Richard Franiec, and his response was "Yes to both questions!"

BTW, I like that you put a hot shoe cover on your camera.  I hate that Canon did not come with one as the other brand do.

I still have one from my Ftb.  Think it will work on my M???

One of my few gripes with the EOS M has been ergonomics - I find it difficult to hold, as the "grip" they put on the front is inadequate. I thought they could have put a larger grip on the front, without increasing the Z-depth of the camera at all, similar to how Panasonic does it with the GX7. Once you mount a lens - any lens - onto the camera, the added depth becomes moot anyway.

Richard Franiec, who has designed camera grips in the past, has announced a grip for the EOS M. I ordered one - should be arriving late November. It was under $40 US. It looks like it will improve ergonomics somewhat with the standard EF-M mount lenses, and will greatly help ergonomics for those who use it with larger EF lenses as well.



I am not affiliated, I just ordered one. Hopefully someone else will find this useful as well. First saw this on digilloyd:

looks good, but a shame its so bulky.

would have made so much sense to build in arca swiss compatibility, so one wouldn't have to mount a plate off center, adding yet even more bulk.

on the other hand, you've got a good point.  the bulk would make it easier to handle with EF/EFS lenses.  when i am choosing the M over the 5D, the challenge is carrying as little or as small and light as possible.

lets us know how it goes!

I used one of this Universal L bracket for mounting my DSLR on a tripod.

I purchased my M today and tried the L plate on it. It is not as good as any of the other grips posed in this thread. However, I find it useable. It provides a grip on the left side whilst I can spare my right hand (fingers) controlling the shutter/buttons etc. It is AcraSwiss standard compatible so it can be mounted on a tripod to switch between vertical and horizontal orientations easily.

Cons : you have to remove the L bracket to reach the battery/SD card compartment opening.
