I have been shooting with the 7d for several years. About a year ago I had an accident that has left me partially paralyzed from the waist down. As you might know. A fully set up 7d with video capability is a big haul. I wanted to get back into shooting and I was looking as smaller cameras. I seriously considered the NEX 7 but the cost of conversion is high. So the Canon EOS M looked like a good deal. I just bought it from BHPhoto for $565 out the door with the flash and both the 22 and the 18-55 lenses. I also picked up the adaptor for my larger lenses like my 11- 16 f2.8 Tokina.

i am interested in setting up a mini video rig. Does anyone have suggestions? Or, better yet pictures trigger rig? Please post.

I used a pistol grip with a T3i for a while with the corded release cable attached to the grip. However, there are no corded release cables for the M, but you may be able to use the wireless one... I believe I was also using Magic Latern so I could assign video recording w/ just a tap of the shutter button. Just a 'cheap' idea.
