I'm secretly hoping that they're working on turning it into a 0.5x reducer but I doubt that's going to happen. :(
Very nice shot!
Don't know if it was intentional but you've got some nice celestial objects too - Orion in the middle (with orion's belt), the pleiades star cluster in the top right corner and Jupiter in the middle. :D
You're allowed to re-submit previous submissions..?
Yey! A camera that the masses find super ugly. Quite suggestive that the designers of an MILC actually prioritized function of form for once. :-)
Am I the only one that has seen several winners in the past year or so with this exact same idea?
John Cal: I'm so happy to be a Pentax user. The Pentax K-01 has in body SR, needs no adapter to fit K mount lenses. ......Canon should have done better, but it will sell by the bucket load no doubt.
Or maybe the pentax just has a big adapter that you can't remove, thus permanently increasing the bulk of the camera with an empty mirror box...? ;-)
@DPreview, I'm confused about this part...
"It allows all of Canon's existing EF and EF-S mount lenses to be used on the EOS M with full functionality (although AF speeds are unlikely to be anything to write home about)." referring to the adapter of course.
This camera has pixels dedicated to phase detection, wouldn't that mean that in theory the focus speed is identical when compared to canon DSLRs?
justinintokyo: The IBIS works at 9FPS. Trust me, I tried. Extensively.
After reading the review (shocked) I spent half an hour shooting a light switch at 400mm, handheld in a dark room just to double check - I have an event to shoot next week that I can't afford to mess up. It is DEFINITELY active during all shots while continuously shooting and not just the first frame. Out of 100s of shots >90% were tack sharp. Without IS it was <10%.
Focussing and exposure on the other hand DO stop working after the first frame at 9FPS.
I imagine this would be a deal breaker for some so thought I'd let you all know. DP either made a mistake/misread the settings (unlikely) or the new firmware update I installed last week (1.1?) has changed things.
DP needs to say something quickly before people discount this gem.
Any comments from the DRP staff on this one...?
I'd quite like to see someone verify this.
Justin, would it be possible to make a short video (with another camera) to show us directly?
I've actually been experimenting with my mom's Pixma MP270 which only cost her 25 euros. It's just got the usual 3 colors + black but the prints do look quite good with canon's own photo paper. Like the review of the Pro-1 mentioned I'm getting a red hue over skin tones as well.
This review is making me wonder if the difference is really that great. Yes, it can print A3 size but that's not what I'm interested in. Other than the extended color gamut I can't really see that many differences. Even the supplied photo printing software is the same.
