  • The giant AF "point" on the M3 was one of my biggest gripes with it, glad to hear that both the standard one is smaller, and there's even a tiny option.  Lack of servo/continuous AF in that case ...
  • Yesterday I put my half-charged 5D4 battery on the battery charger, and after 6hrs it was still blinking orange. I put the battery in the camera and saw 53% charge, which seems like it wasn't ...
  • I am away from my camera right now, but with the same card on the 5D4, I don't believe I see this issue --- I've been able to take repeated shots quickly in one shot mode.
  • The manual indicates that you get the LC-E6 or LC-E6E, and the latter comes with a power cord. In the US I believe you get the former.  If you got the latter but no power cord, then yes, you ...
  • Replied in Yes
    I bought it as a companion to my 5D3, and yes, would get it again. It's clearly not a 5D3 level camera, but it is pretty capable, small, and has great image quality. I can take it places where the ...
  • I bought it for its stills features, and they look great, and to me worth the upgrade.  Seems like to Peter Gregg the 4K video was the primary use case, and he was disappointed. I tried the video ...
  • Agreed --- the video seemed entertaining but didn't require 20+ minutes. I could only listen to it off and on, but one of the complaints seemed to be the need to transcode the video after recording ...
  • It's possible to get pretty good battery life with a few key settings. For instance disabling continuous AF, especially if you have a non EF-M lens.  My experience getting 400+ shots without ...
  • I think the "Continuous AF" setting, which is on by default, also contributes to battery drain, and is likely especially worse with an EF/EF-S lens. With some lenses and "Continuous AF" enabled ...
  • I usually take the lens detached from the M3; the M3 without a lens looks like a regular compact. You're right that a search may still find the lens, but a small risk. Maybe you turn back and take ...
  • Thanks! Hard to beat RAW, high ISO support, and the physical exposure dial... Ali
  • Created discussion thread M3 at Muse concert
    Took the M3 + EF-M 55-200 to Muse at Oakland Arena. I was in second level seats, but the M3 and the 55-200 did pretty well. I did have to use an iPhone to get the wide shots... The 55-200 had no ...
