fred 76: This camera has a big potential for astrophotography. It is light weight, has a short flange to sensor depth, and a decent sensor. But to shoot astrophotos, we need to be able to operate the camera from EOS Utility (or any other software that uses the Canon EOS SDK).
Some questions about the use of the EOS M with EOS Utility:1) will it be possible to do remote shooting?2) will it be possible to get Bulb with very long exposures (say 10 minutes or even more)?3) will it be possible to use the EOS Utility intervalometer?
Last question about modifying this camera :1) is it difficult to open so that we can remove and replace the internal UV/IR cut filters?
The RC-6 will be supported for remote capture per a Canon representative at http://photo.net/canon-eos-digital-camera-forum/00afFH
