I have issues with stealth mode when the ergonomics are as such on the M and there is no VF. It really slows down the operation. Now in fully auto mode that's another but I haven't shot that way in 30+ years. YMMV.

Thanks Pablo got it

Fuji X series and 4/3s like Olympus or Panasonic have really worked on their stealth/quiet functionality. They promote it a lot. I do not neg since I like EOS M's sensor better and the price so much better.

Learn to "shoot it from the hip". You can make an educated guess on what will be in your picture. Anytime you raise your camera to the eye level. It is not stealth anymore. Therefore no view finder will not hinder you.

If the Vivian Maeir documentary is showing anywhere near you, prepare to be taught how to shoot from the hip.
Poor woman lacked confidence but is the best street photographer I've seen.  Period. 
Okay she had a rollieflex.  But she never had flickr.

Rollieflex by right is  a "shoot from the hip" camera, due the waist level finder.

exactly.  If I thought I would ever use film again I'd buy one.  So cheap now.  Like Contax Arias and G2's.

Yea that moving LCD is what we lack here! Perhaps our friend's trick:

I believe EOS M is more of a Trojan camera rather than a stealth camera.
