  • The Sony E mount flange distance is 18mm and the internal diameter 46.1mm. The Canon EF-M flange distance is 18mm and the internal diameter 47mm.  It must be even harder to make full-frame lenses ...
  • Thanks a lot for the review Marco but are you sure the original M had a 60s shutter speed? It isn't listed here, http://global.canon/en/c-museum/product/dslr812.html and my EOS M only goes to 30s ...
  • Replied in Nikon V1 vs M5
    I think you'll love the 11-22mm EOS M lens; with the IS it's really good in abysmal light unless you need to stop subject motion.  The Samsung 8mm f/2.8 is another fun lens. I bought my J1 a couple ...
  • One improvement with the new lens is the chip and contacts which will provide electronic control of the aperture, giving faster operation with a bright viewfinder image.  My experience with the ...
  • The tubes have contacts for transmitting the signals between the lens and the camera and obviously would fit between an EF lens and the Mount Adapter EF-EOS M so there is no reason they would not ...
  • I regularly use EOS M cameras with a 300mm f/4 or a 100mm f/2, but ever since the days of film I've always held a camera with my left hand under the lens.  My 300mm kens has a broad neckstrap ...
  • Replied in 35mm F2 IS
    I can't see any M lens coming with a 75mm (3") front element.  The EF L lens is pretty small for 300mm IS f/4, it's not much bigger than the FD versions and it's smaller than the Tele-Tessar.   I ...
  • If you got it second-hand you can download the manual here; http://www.canon.co.uk/support/consumer_products/products/cameras/speedlites/speedlite_420ex.aspx?type=manuals&language= On the EOS M it ...
  • Size doesn't matter, only pixel pitch and f number. The Canon 5Ds sensor has a pixel pitch more similar to APS-C sensors than to other 36x24mm sensors which is why diffraction is more noticeable. L ...
  • I can't find any of those selfie modes in the manual.  The M10 doesn't support the IR remote but it does have a 10s or 2s self -timer and also supports the Canon Connect mobile phone app (iOS or ...
  • It should fire at full power but won't give metering, TTL or otherwise and there's no distance-aperture scale so you'll just have to suck it and see.  Nikon and Canon flash contacts are in ...
  • @LFPCH. A mirrorless DSLR is like a rangefinderless rangefinder camera. That's the contradiction in terms. A digital camera with a detachable electronic viewfinder does not automatically become...

  • @quietrich - The mirror in a twin-lens reflex never flips. That type of camera has been called a reflex camera for well over 90 years.
    @LFPCPH - The Olympus C-1400L of 1997, the C2020Z and the...

  • That depends on how you feel about terminological inexactitudes. A MILC is not a DSLR by definition. Digital cameras don't use electronics to reflect light. (Not all DSLRs have interchangeable...

  • The trend with Canon's updated lenses is bigger, heavier, better and twice the price of the previous model.  The Mark II was introduced seven years ago, fifteen years after the Mark I.  Get out ...
  • TLRs have a 45° mirror behind the top lens to reflect the light onto the focussing screen. That's the reflex part. The bottom lens projects onto the film and has a shutter and an iris. While...

  • Replied in 35mm F2 IS
    No optics in the tube, just eight electrical contacts on the lens side and nine on the camera side.  I've no experience either of the 135mm or of the 18-150mm, but the 135mm lens for 36x24mm ...
  • Reflex refers to reflexion or reflection which is what mirrors and prisms do. The very first cameras used through the lens viewing (you focussed on a ground glass screen and then substituted a...

  • Marco Those are great images, but the only curious part is that you were even able to focus at all.  A 200mm lens with a 12mm extension tube should focus at around 3.75m from the sensor with the  ...
  • That's fine for the sunset and the cat picture; something like the last picture could work in monochrome or sepia as a pastiche Victorian landscape.  Bear in mind that f/2.2 on the EOS 5 would be ...
