    Here are some more images of the Canon EOS M6 Mark II

    Unlike EF(-S) lenses, M lenses don't have a dedicated AF/MF switch, so you change it via the camera. In the M100 you have to fiddle with the menu system, and the M6 II has a dedicated button, to mirror the tactile experience from the EF lenses. I think it actually says in the stats that it only...

    Poll: Are you going to be preordering the Canon EOS 90D or Canon EOS M6 Mark II?

    Exactly. And if it turns out on the road that a lens is seriously out of step with the camera then one can always still use live view, which doesn't need AFMA, and then one can send the camera in to have it fixed permanently.

    Poll: Are you going to be preordering the Canon EOS 90D or Canon EOS M6 Mark II?

    I was considering getting the GP-E2 but then I passed because it doesn't fully support my camera (i.e. digital compass doesn't work). The camera connect app in turn doesn't support GPS on my DSLR, but on the G7 X II. This inconsistency is a little maddening.

    Canon EOS M6 Mark II full specifications

    The G7XII and the M6 have that mode too. When you take a photo of a moving object it's supposed to keep the car/bike/moving thingy in focus while blurring the background as you move the camera along when tracking the object.

    No crop on 4K coming in next APS-C DSLR [CR1]

    Didn't they introduce that Rebel Pro with the 77D/800D? Forum users and reviewers dismissed it, but it seems to be quite popular.

    EOS M related camera bodies coming in late August 2019 [CR1]

    Bummer about the M6. I quite like that the viewfinder is optional, so depending on the situations the camera can be even more compact, or a tad more sunshine-friendly with the viewfinder attached. (Even though, perpetually: when you push and hold the "downward" or "info" button for over a second...

    Canon Inc. releases Q1 2019 financial results

    Of course! You're absolutely right about that. And I'm actually glad Canon then removed the facebook icon from the menu. And whether it is a good idea to have always-connected cameras is another matter. I just wanted to point out that this functionality used to exist because people on this forum...

    Canon Inc. releases Q1 2019 financial results

    Exactly. And it is one of my pet peeves that people on this forum often keep jumping from one extreme to another: if you don't half a full-frame camera then you might as well just use a phone. There's plenty of space in-between. Smartphones are expensive and get obsolete a lot more quickly...

    Canon Inc. releases Q1 2019 financial results

    I agree with half your point: the bang-for-buck APS-C argument works very strongly in Canon's favour. But I wonder if the APS-C DLSR and EF-S lens segment wouldn't be doing better if they had actually released new models in the last 20+ months (with the ensuing buzz). Like it or not but people...

    Canon Inc. releases Q1 2019 financial results

    Until last year it was possible to post straight to facebook from wifi-enabled cameras such as the M100, 77D, G7XII but then facebook removed the api so that's no longer possible. But back then I often wondered why it wasn't possible to do the same on instagram. Canon's wifi implementation in...

    Canon officially announces the EOS Rebel SL3

    Yes it is super odd. What's more, in the European version they used the same footage but cut the whole disappointed-borrows-camera plot, and the boy suddenly just has it (Presumably that's how it works in Europe? Kids can just afford these gadgets?), and in the end, when the father finds him...

    Canon officially announces the EOS Rebel SL3

    And it's an excellent lens. I wish Canon would follow up with similarly interesting lenses for EF-S...

    Preorder: Canon EOS Rebel SL3

    Nice features: silent shooting (when shooting through the viewfinder; only in one shot AF) and up to three lens profiles can be loaded into the camera for digital lens optimiser (which not even the 80D has in-camera; Canon Germany bills it as "first in this class")...

    Canon talks IBIS and EOS M in a recent interview

    I absolutely agree with you on the M5. It's all good and well to say that they'll let the market decide but I wonder if the fact that they barely released anything EF-M-related (let alone EF-S) last year, and don't seem to be planning on this year given that they're shifting most of their...

    Canon talks IBIS and EOS M in a recent interview

    Also, why did bdbender4 buy the EF-M 32, which was released after the Z6, knowing that weather sealing and IBIS (by definition) weren't on the cards for that lens?

    Canon shows off concept cameras at CP+

    The Kids Mission Camera is going to be the first ILC with IBIS and optical stabilisation and the pros will go totally bananas because they'll have to wait until 2030.

    Canon EOS RP Specifications & Images

    Yes but in one of the many interviews with Canon executives which were posted on CR in these last few months they did say that there weren't going to be exact matches between DSLR and mirrorless lines, and that's also what has happened with the APS-C and M series: there is no exact equivalent...

    APS-C DSLR lineup to get a shake up? [CR1]

    I agree with your reasoning. There were some small things separating the 80D from the 77D (AFMA, in-raw-processing, minimum shutter speed) but the one advantage the 77D has is size: so if their amalgamation of lines meant that they put an updated-80D-capable camera into an 77D body (and, Canon...

    Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS to come before EF version [CR2]

    Exactly. "No new EF lenses in 2019" probably means "no new EF-S lenses" either, and there hasn't been one in 2018. There's never been two consecutive years of no-EF-S release before -- and if -as an APS-C shooter with no intention to invest in full-frame- you have to wait until 2020 for a...
