  • I tried my m5 today with a 270ex.  Here is what I observed: 1.  Ettl works 2.  But the camera is really slow from the time one presses the shutter to when the camera takes a picture. 3.  Even with ...
  • Adobe should just buy photo mechanic and integrate into its from end. But, then again Adobe will probably mess a good product up.

    PS Rental payments (aka ransomware) is fine with me if Adobe...

  • Replied in SL2 or 80D?
    Several points: 1.  My m5 evf focusing in most cases is better in good light than my d80 or sl1 because the af sensor on all canon dsrl's is not on the recording sensor so one has to do a micro af ...
  • Too bad when I hold the button down for a second it does both: centers the af box and turns off tough and drag. Sometimes the af box is all over the place.  To center it I have to use a button on ...
  • thanks you taught me something...bp
  • I also find no such button....bp
  • Why set a low price, you ask=making money on volume (vs margin), trying to increase market share, and trying to lock in future upgrades Why set a higher price=Trying to make money on margin, less ...
  • You telling me that Canon's only camera competition is Nikon.  I guess you don't think that Sony, apple and others amount to much.  The camera market place is changing quickly.  The old ...
  • As I said before the $549 reflects what Canon wants to sell in order to protect and perhaps enhance its dsrl future sales (camera upgrades, lenses, et al).  In my mind it also says for Canon they ...
  • SL2==It is a game changer because of price and relative size. Most most importantly, it says what Canon wants its new low end dsrl customers to buy. Bp
  • What the quote says what and why they did things in Asia.  What I am talking about Canon Pros worldwide and not the consumer marketplace.  I know quite a few pros and my guess is that maybe 50% ...
  • I agree that my m5 (mirrorless) is great little camera and I don't use my mirrored cameras very often.  The m5 for me is great for almost everything I do except: 1.  Low light and where I want to ...
  • Canon for the m5 series is trying to make money on the margin and not volume of units sold. The sl1 they are trying to make money on volume. The only reason I can think to do this is the sl1 sales ...
  • I have both (sl1, m5, and 80d and 7d2).  The reason I use the m5 over the others for everything except moving objects (bif or sports) or low light/flash is 1.  The m5 is smaller and lighter and the ...
  • I think Canon is trying to say something with the pricing and perhaps prove something.  That is the sl2 is a little less than $450.00 less than the M5.  Canon designed the sl2 to be a beginners ...
  • why m5 vs sl2 1.  Af sensors cover most of the image, and all are selectable 2.  For ovf one needs to micro adjust the lens to the camera if Canon provided that capability.  If Canon didn't provide ...
  • Replied in Confusing...
    Canon did a good job with the m5, in my opinion.  But the mirrorless competition marches on and show what is possible....low light, much better tracking, etc. In my opinion the market for Canon ...
  • Created user review thread Canon m5
    Canon m5 is a great little camera, but it is held back by the following: 1. No cross type af sensors 2. No selective af patterns like the 7d2 3. Poor af in low light 4. No effective spot af 5. For ...
  • If the M sells well, then Canon's lens competitors will get into the game seriously unless Canon gets off their rear end.  I don't think Canon wants their potential lens sales going to a ...
  • Competition, even competition of brands within the same company is good as competition usually results in better products.  It is also quite possible that one of these cameras gets a whole bunch ...
