That's cool, I have had some near misses with satellites, they jus never line up!
prodz: Ooo yeah!
Why does Canon keep making cameras that everyone ALMOST wants? This was soooo close to being good. Even a tunnel VF is better than nothing. Yes, I know about the add on but Canon says you'll get about 40 pictures less per battery when using it, I'm thinking they're stretching the truth a bit, it's might be double that.
Hinder: Crap, still no viewfinder?!!!! No thank you. How do you hold it still at 600mm? An add on VF? Might as well carry my SL1 . I really wanted to like it but it's just another Canon fail. :(
I never hold a camera at arms length, too unsteady. I do use my cheek to stabilize it. I might like the add on vf okay, I just wince at the price and the fact that it sticks up so far making a somewhat compact not so compact anymore, so I'll just use the SL1 when I want to go smaller. That's the only reason I got rid of my EOSM, no VF, you cannot see the screen in bright sunlight and I find a moving target nearly impossible to to follow without a VF or a distant target difficult to spot. No thank you.
Yes, just something else to carry, break, lose, eat battery……defeats the purpose of an all in one smaller camera.

djm99: What is an "underrepresented community?"
What an odd thing to make or want. Does someone really want a heavier camera? Nikon is marketing to pimps now?
If it's that dark that you need this sensor, it's late and I'd rather be in bed. See you in the morning.
Serious Sam: Between the D750 and 7Dii, there is a $500 difference and from what I can see it is easily justified...FF, WiFi, Tilted And better LCD, a proven phase system..... just to name a few.
Of course there are sadly too many Canon shooters that got suck into the system and now has lens stock that prevent them from moving away from the system.
I wrote lately in an Australia forum that Sony has change the pricing and product cycle of FF cameras it seems Nikon is catching on....just not Canon. I wouldn't be surprise though as friends in channel tell me Canon are as arrogant as they were ten years ago.
Finally DPR, we have heard enough about Canon in the pass few days already. Please talk about something else.
I already have a FF, I am going to buy this. Why do people get so upset if you buy the camera you want? Don't want or need wifi or tilt screen. I don't like sony if that's okay with you. They feel cheap and my past experiences with them have been awful. I already have many Canon lenses and accessories so why would I want to sell all of it and spend more money on something I do not want or need?
To all the angry people it's simple, don't buy it, I'm sure your iPhone will blow it away. How and why do you get so mad at a camera?
Jogger: "There is also a new M8 co-processor which is coupled with a barometer and allows for accurate tracking of changes in elevation. "
And this is critical for phones because???
"So, when you out there shooting, you know storm is coming by reading barometer"
I just use the weather app. :-)
No lights used, he just uses "erase" in Elements. :-)
Tim Gander: I wrote a review of the original BeFree and I was impressed except for the fact that where the tops of the legs pivot at the shoulder, the castings are painted inside the joint so sooner or later you have flakes of black paint being ground out of the joints. A bit disconcerting, and annoying to have bits of black paint dropping out. I guess it wears off eventually and the flaking stops, but seems a shame. Otherwise, not a bad little tripod. Not worth the extra for carbon fibre though. Just one thought, if a carbon fibre tripod does get destroyed, carbon fibres which break away are just as deadly as asbestos. Not sure many people are aware of that.
Just don't grind it up and breathe it for 50 years.
No viewfinder, how do you hold these things still at arms length or find your target at 1000mm or even 700mm?
I love my M.
JJLMD: Canon and Nikon are tomorrow's IBM and Kodak unless they undergo an extreme makeover. I rekindled this hobby in earnest about 2 years ago after decades of disinterest. When I started researching gear, I started researching only Canon and Nikon but it didn't take me very long to realize that Sony, Fujifilm and Olympus were making the most exciting products. Look, there are still people who still see Cadillac as THE prestige brand so it'll take awhile but there's no doubt in my mind that Canon and Nikon are on the same path as IBM and Kodak. These companies were once dominant and during their reign, it was unimaginable they would fall all the way to the bottom.
Hmmmm, google "Sony bankruptcy"
beavertown: The worst investment ever made by Tameron. Who owns EOS-M?
Even the population of the unwanted Nikon 1 system is much higher than the EOS-M.
I love my M, this lens will make it more useful when out and about and when I need to, I can use my L lenses.
:-) Challenge is for "T" horniness! Sorry couldn't resist.
