  • Interest9ing thought, but depends on the subject. When you have near and far images it is important to take your multiple images from the same place. Parallax issues are very hard to fix. If you ...
  • DigitalRev promises USA deliveries and warranties in the US. They are more expensive, but it might be better than a $500 paperweight. My son's M is dead in Germany. Cost of repair more that a new ...
  • It is bulkier than a point and shoot. I consider it in the same class as my G9. It is far less intimidating than DSLR. Good knock about. I keep one in my glove box is a small case. My 5D2 is too ...
  • Is the G7 X quiet?  Silent?  I hear the front dial clicks.
  • The evening of 4 of July in Quito.  A pano with the 18-55 at 18, multiple images stitched.  It is almost 180 degrees.
  • Created discussions Ecuador - Galapagos with M
    I have a 5d2 and bought an M for travel.  I sold the purchase as leave big expensive camera at home and travel light. When confronted with renting a 100-400, I decided to take both.  I did leave a ...
  • Oops, I forgot.  The M has a setting "hdr" that takes 4 images quickly and in camera fixes things.  That is probably the simplest option.  Technically, not the best, but very easy.  Good enough?  ...
  • Bracketing all your shots?  No.  However, if I am in full sun with high dynamic range and you have hope of collecting a keeper, yes bracket them.  It is a menu and a little tricky.  It is not bad. ...
  • First, do not throw away images.  Later you may get better tools or understanding and resurrect a classic.  DPP is supposed to get an update (free) that does shadows highlights.  Otherwise you can ...
  • Don't know.  First time.  The wildlife is supposed unafraid of humans.  It will not be an intense dirds in flight. I am leaning on the 5d and a zoom.  I know it.  Perfection would be a 5D 3, but ...
  • Do not be afraid of hand held hdr.  Do not be afraid of RAW.  Both can be your friend. A little shadow highlights.  Shadows were a little blue.
  • Created discussions Use a 5d as a backup?
    Yet another gear head post.  Yet another which lens should I buy. ---  here goes. I have a 5d2 and use a 24-105, 40 pancake, and 17-40.  Nice setup but not very stealthy or light.  So I bought an ...
  • My guess is that wide angle would be better, so the 22 should be good.  Shallow snorkeling should reduce need for complexity and flash. If this were a diving trip, whole different answer. By the ...
  • Replied in New to LR
    Yes.  First the RAW / jpeg is in preferences.  Library-- edit  -- preference (or control +) then the general tab. Easy answer for develop.  It was designed to go top down. Global adjustments ...
  • Created discussions M goes underwater?
    I am traveling to the Galapagos with my new M. We will snorkel and spend time in a rain forest. There is a DiCAPac underwater housing available. Less than 70$. Has anyone tried this? I do not know ...
  • 2.0.2  I just bought a M and it had the most recent firmware on it.  In the unlikely event your M has old firmware, you will need to log into Canon website and download.  Just follow their ...
  • Thanks for the input.  It has been hard since there are no stores with an M nearby.  My new camera M is arriving Friday.  Holy crap.  I needed to buy memory cards, batteries, cases.  It is like a ...
  • For me it is easy.  Rent an efs 10-18 or 10-22.  There are no 11-22 in USA.  Henry's is sold out. You can buy on ebay from Japan.  I am going on a trip and do not have my M yet.  Love / hate?  ...
