Don't like the light theme at all. Hard on the eyes.

Just because the 1DXII shoots at 14fps and has an Auto AF mode, does not mean you can just point and click away and expect the camera to do all the work. Pro photographers still have to learn how to use their tools and AF is one of them. Look at the examples that other photographers have posted and you can see that those who know how to use these cameras can catch amazing shots of birds in flight... that does not happen by point and shoot.

Also, the rubberized strips on the "padded" part of the strap begin to peel off rather quickly. Annoying....

In reply to:

nachos: I use the BosStrap. I don't like strap systems that use the tripod mount. Besides getting in the way if you're on and off a tripod, that mount is not designed for hanging. You can find plenty of pictures of bent camera bottoms when a heavy lens has been shlepped around for awhile. And that point can easily rattle itself loose.

The BosStrap just uses one of the existing camera strap hooks which are designed for supporting such loads. And it doesn't get in the way of moving on and off a tripod.

I'm not affiliated with the company, just found it to be a good solution...

I've used the BosStrap also and found it very comfortable. My only complaint was that putting it on and taking it off was not simple. If you are good to leave it on, then this is a good option too.

Loved the idea of their quick connectors, but after using the Slide for some time I found that it was too wide and the stiffness of the pad didn't really give any padding comfort. At 6', I found the strap to be too short, having to extend if all the way on both sides. The sling method didn't work well for me. This strap ended up in my junk drawer with the old Black Rapid Sling and I found perfection in the Luma Labs Loop 3!! It has a thin .75" strap, leather/neoprene pad at top that stays in place when sliding the camera up and down, and a one piece machined connector that is super secure. The Slide may look good (and they are genius at their marketing videos) but the Luma Labs Loop 3 is a much better sling.

I ordered one of these as an initial Kickstarter funder, so once it arrived I found it to be much too large for me. It it too wide and feel awkward. I do appreciate some of the design factors that went into it, but if you load this up with a 15" laptop and camera gear, it is just way too heave for that seatbelt strap with no padding. I wish I could return it.

On article Canon EOS M hands-on preview (564 comments in total)

Boy Canon is really messing up. This camera looks like something you give your 5 year old as their first camera. (ULGY!!) Apparently they have not been watching their competitions SONY's RX100 is killing them in what the G1X and this mirrorless should have been. And these M lens choices are slow!! What is the point If I have to use an EOS lens adapter to use a good lens? I'd rather carry my 5D3 in that case. Any person using a 70-200 2.8IS on this camera would be a fool (much less look like one).

Really? When I look at the Original size it looks like the leaves are slightly over processed and not as sharp as I would have expected. Maybe its the JPEG processing and the RAW file would be fine?

Anyone know when this camera is scheduled to be released in stores? This will definitely be my travel camera along side my 5DMKII w/24L!

agreed. this looks fine when small, but lousy at 100%. Wonder how the RAW would process out?
