EOS M2
Sep 21, 2013

Just downloaded the new version of DPP from Canon website.

Checking under the help section on Lighting Optimizer and look what is found:

If the shooting result is dark or the contrast is low, you can use the Auto Lighting Optimizer function to auto-correct the brightness and contrast, and obtain a more pleasant image. You can also change the settings of the image shot with the camera's Auto Lighting Optimizer function. This function is compatible only with RAW images shot with EOS-1D X, EOS-1D C, EOS-1D Mark IV, EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 6D, EOS 7D, EOS 70D, EOS 60D, EOS 50D, EOS REBEL T5i/700D, EOS REBEL SL1/100D, EOS REBEL T4i/650D, EOS REBEL T3i/600D, EOS REBEL T2i/550D, EOS REBEL T1i/500D, EOS REBEL T3/1100D, EOS M2 and EOS M.

Perhaps an announcement soon !

That's NOT an isolated reference to the M2 either!
In reply to Jon A T, Sep 21, 2013

I just updated the software as well, just to check it out for myself and decided to use the Search feature for: M2.  It showed up several times.  See the attached image...

It shows up in:
Correcting Lens Aberration

Downloading an Image to your Computer

Editing an Image

...and 5 other topics.

Seems to me there's a successor on the horizon.  The big question is... when, and what features!?  And what price?

This thread needs a more descriptive title. I almost skipped over it as it looked like another person's wishlist of what they want on a possible next model.

A title like "EOS M2 spotted in DPP" would have garnered a LOT more attention!

From the help screens

"Connect your camera and computer and turn the camera on.

  • Connect the camera and your computer with the interface cable provided with the camera and turn the camera on.
  • For detailed instructions on connecting your camera and computer, refer to the "EOS Utility Instruction Manual" (PDF electronic manual).
  • The capture window for EOS Utility appears. When an EOS M2 or EOS M is connected, the capture window does not appear. Proceed to step 5."

Sounds like they didn't implement remote capture on the M2?

Any way to interpret further.  I have never read Digital Photo Professional before but also appreciate the news about that too.

I didn't find any mention for an "SX60." Not surprising, since I don't think the SX series has Lighting Optimizer feature on the camera.

"The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated." Mark Twain, and now apparently the M2.

So now we can debate when and what, instead of the demise of the Canon M series camera. And while we are waiting, maybe we can take great photographs with the Canon M cameras we have.  In my case it's the photographer that's limiting, and not the camera.
