  • I try to carry my M everywhere I go.
  • Bought the zoom kit lens combo for $350 when the price drop of the M first started last summer.  It is my go everywhere camera, from eating out to concerts. The combo fits all my jacket pockets,...
  • Quick question. Just wondering what came with your 10-22mm? I was looking at purchasing the 10-22mm from Canon Online and was being prompted to buy the "accessory" rear dust cap for the lens....
  • After moving to a 5DMk3, my beloved 10-22 is on permanent loan to my nephew. Although it was not as sharp as my 17-55 2.8IS (no ultra-wide lens can), it is sharp enough even wide open, less prone...
  • When shooting still life (e.g., food in a dim restaurant), I prefer shutter speed of 1/8s or slower on the 18-55IS while putting my elbows on the table.  The EOS M rarely set the shutter speed...
  • Replied in Canon AWB
    Canon AWB under tungsten light is always too yellow, because Canon rarely set the WB below 3600K automatically.  I guess they think people prefer slightly warmer color when shooting indoor at...
  • Your EOS camera only accepts commands from the mini-USB port, not a SD card.  Thus, none of the many brands of Wifi SD card can control a camera. For Android phones or tablets, there is a cheap...
  • I own both.  But since getting the IS version, the non-IS version was only occasionally loaned to others.  I have no direct comparison. I think the IS version is slightly sharper if you pixel...

  • I use the cheapest Eye-Fi card, the Connect X2 4 GB on both the 5DMk3 and the EOS M.  On the 5DMk3, I save RAW on a CF card and S2 jpg on the Eye-Fi.  On the EOS M, I save both RAW & large JPG to...
  • What are the photos for? Art books and foodie blogs usually have very shallow DOF, where only the tip of the most important piece of food is in focus. Magazine and newspaper food review may have a...
  • BAK wrote: Auto ISO should never be used. "Never" is a pretty strong word.  I tried using auto ISO for a while.  It is convenient for travel, when I constantly move between in and out doors.  Being...
