    Canon executives say a lot more coming in 2019

    M50 and 15-45 mm in the rain

    “Picture must be taken, let the camera be damned” that is my motto. I did that even with the Lieca M4 in the old days. You either come home with no pictures or taking risk on a $600 equipment. What will be your choice?

    M50 and 15-45 mm in the rain

    I was in a well known scenic area for 3 rainy days. Due to the rain and even occasional snow, I dare not to change lenses. So I am stuck with the 15-45 lens with the lens hood on. The only protection is to tuck the camera under my poncho and wipe off the water from both the lens and camera...

    One last round of EOS body upgrades left?

    My statement is for film cameras as a group. Not specific for Canon. In the 1930's Leica was making range finder camera while Exakta was making SLR. later LOTS of company started to make either RF or SLR. Canon was making both for along time. The last Leica film camera, M6 TTL was made until...

    One last round of EOS body upgrades left?

    In the good old film days, "professional" SLR and RF have been co-exist for more than 50 years.

    Canon M50 low light focus assist

    M50 DPAF is phrase detection AF on sensor , works the same way as separate AF phrase detector on DSLR. Why drag the contrast AF into the discussion?

    Canon M50 low light focus assist

    It got nothing to do with dual pixel AF. M2 is not dual pixel AF. It is cannon's way to make the DSLR more "useful". I tried my old trustworthy 580EX II on both M2 and M50. The focusing grid never comes on.

    IS mess up the edge sharpness of EF-M 11-22 on M50

    IS mess up the edge sharpness of EF-M 11-22 on M50

    I went out earlier to try out Neuro and Mt. Spokane's suggestion. They are right. Wait 1 second makes a difference with IS. Will post sample images in a few days. the problem is at area closed to the left edge. Center is ALWAYS sharp

    IS mess up the edge sharpness of EF-M 11-22 on M50

    Thanks for the advice. Do you mean that I need to half push the shutter to activate the IS , wait 0.5 seconds, then push the shutter all the way down to take the picture???

    IS mess up the edge sharpness of EF-M 11-22 on M50

    I just notice that the edge sharpness of my 11-22mm on my M50 is not good. After investigation, I found out that is caused by the IS function of the lens. I tried the lens on my M2. It has the same problem. Due to the lower resolution of the M2, the problem is not that obvious. Has anyone seen...

    M50, Exposure meter does not seem to tie into the focal point.

    Mt Spokane, Thanks. I tried to focus on the computer screen and the dark shelf below the computer table. I got a change of over 2 stop. I was spoiled by the 40D that the focus points also acts as spot meter even at evaluation metering. Therefore the reading between drak object and bright object...

    M50, Exposure meter does not seem to tie into the focal point.

    The shutter speed changes less than 1stop between setting the focal point between the dark object and the bright subject with the SAME SCENERY
