    Question on live view focus vs viewfinder AF and micro focus adjustment re 80D

    I am having some problems getting my 80D to focus sharply. I have tried some micro focus adjustments but still not sharp. I have also tried to do live view focusing but with same results. When I do the same with my M3 everything is sharp as it should be.. Am I missing something? I have used...

    I am a novice bird photographer and yesterday I tried to photograph a pair of Paradise Flycatchers on a nest with three chicks. The only access is from a window a little above the nest. I haven't measure the exact distance but I guess its about three meters from the camera. I have managed to...

    G3X firmware update to 'fix' poor RAW performance?

    To say the poor performance of the G3X in RAW is disappointing is an understatement to say the least! I was hoping to use it as a bird & wildlife camera for my wife and I. I have a dslr and 70-300L but the 600mm equivalent in a small compact body sure sounded very attractive. The other option...

    M3 and Samyang(etc) lenses - shutter wont trip

    I tried to test two Samyang/bower/ lenses etc today in a local camera shop and my shutter wouldn't trip. These lenses have no electronic contacts and I wondered if that was the reason why. Initially I thought I had set " dont release shutter without lens attached" but I couldn't find a setting...

    Eos M3 -Three weeks in Europe, my Review

    Hi, I have just come back from three weeks in Germany and Italy where I used my M3 extensively as a travel camera with the 18-55 kit zoom and the 22mm f2 prime. What I mainly found is that the image quality is really good up to 1600 iso ( I didn't test the higher iso's) The shadows when pushed...

    Eos M3 at 1600iso

    I have just come back from three weeks in Germany and Italy. I used a 6D and M3 and shot thousands of images on both. Generally the Eos M3 performed well although the AF is still slow. I am sifting through the images now to find suitable ones for a review. I saw this couple having dinner at a...

    So I got myself a new Eos M3...

    I have had it for a few weeks now and I am busy writing up my review...but here are a few thoughts so far in no particular order of importance: 1. The performance is quite inconsistent with the standard zoom lens...I find focus and sharpness is quite hit and miss. Sometimes its sharp, other...

This is approx what I bought my M plus 22m plus adapter for after the first price decrease...later on it was...
