It looks like they are still interested in supporting EF-M, if EF-M was truly dead they could have just made this RF. That's good because I've just bought a used M5 with the EF-M 18-150mm for a really good deal.

My guess, It's a device for a different field.

1. thermal image camera/sensor for police, fire & Rescue, Home builders, etc.
2. IR - night imaging
3. speeding device
4. Some sort of tool that needs imaging, (Thank You Captain Obvious)
5. Ghost Busting imaging device
6.

Because the unit only pivots up and down, I would say it's not a gimbal and it's going to be a related device & not something we would use as photographers. With that said, lets think outside our box and come up with some fun ideas?

From what I read, its for Vloggers. The lens can be flipped by hand to bring the photographer / speaker quickly into focus and the hot shoe for a external mic rotates with the lens. The idea is to quickly switch from the Vlogger to focus another person or subject quickly and the mic switches as well. That allows a single hand held camera to be used. A interview might be a example.

Do keep in mind that the minimum focus distance on the 600mm is, I believe, 4.2m. You’ll need to mount the device itself to a fairly robust selfie stick. Otherwise, flawless plan.

Can you attach an EF-600 f4L?

That's called a telephone pole.

OSMO is the best!

But seriously, this looks really cool and useful.


I think I meant to put “OSMO is *******.”

I think I was drinking when I commented this, because I don’t remember this thread... Quarantine is clearly getting to me guys.. But I am intrigued by a Canon version.

That would be good camera if they remove that silly leg .
Use that puck shape ,put round battery to bottom of puck like mobile phones .
Put viewfinder to hotshoe
touch controls to side of puck.
