  • Created discussion thread Dinner out on our last night in Seattle
    Last night in Seattle we went to a place we like very much for dinner near the airport. They sat us outside on the patio and the early evening light was great as was the food and wine! I take the M ...
  • Created discussion thread Grid lines only with M-3?
    I was shooting this morning at sunrise where it would have been nice to have the grid lines in the viewfinder on my M3 for aligning my shot but couldn't get just grid lines, had to have the ...
  • Created discussion thread first horseback riding lesson for my GD
    I took the M3 along for my granddaughter's first horseback riding lesson. Mainly because it was light and easy and I had another bag with drinks and snacks so didn't want to add more weight with a ...
  • Thanks, that was done in Lightroom later on. I tweeked the Clarity slider to the left to reduce it slightly. I find that sometimes can act like an old fashioned diffusion or soft focus filter.  I ...
  • Yes but it was on my old M body, they had turned the lights down and everyone was dancing. Too dark for stills so I shot the video; it's ok but pretty noisy.
  • My wife's coworker invited us to his daughter's wedding and I brought along my M and new M-3, other than a few test shots this was my first time shooting anything big with the new body. They had a ...
  • Replied in Nope
    Thanks, it isn't a deal breaker for me. I try to remember to clear a memory card after the images are safely downloaded on a computer, having it on the MyMenu is just for those times I go out to ...
  • I am actually taking it to shoot at at a wedding today, albeit I am just a guest and not hired to take pictures. My M3 arrived on Wednesday and I haven't had too much time to get out with it other ...
  • On my original M as well as my Canon DSLRs I like to put "Erase" in the list on the MyMenu shortcuts. I like it as a quick way to clear a card of images. The M3 moved the "Play" menu items like ...
  • It is a Canon North America warranty so buying from Canada is not an issue for service. I bought it from Henry's and it was back ordered for about 2 weeks and then shipped promptly. I would do it ...
  • Yes I followed your link to B&H and instructions the body was priced $479 and the EV was an additional $18.99. I put it in my cart but wanted to wait until the weekend to clear ordering it with my ...
  • Created discussion thread Price drop at B&H
    Sorry if I missed this being posted but as I mentioned the wife and I had a tax refund so I had put the camera and viewfinder and an extra Canon battery in my cart at B&H where I am a registered ...
  • This is one of the things I especially like about this forum, friendly helpful advice. I didn't get that on the forum for the 7D MkII! Some of the folks there get up on the wrong side of the bed!
  • I guess I should have explained in my first post that I already own the M and all 4 EOS-M lenses, the Canon lens adapter and the flash.  This morning I saw B&H has one kit that just has the body ...
  • I know I am a bit behind the curve but we got some unexpected money from the IRS via our tax wiz accountant. So I am looking at the M3 finally. There are some good deals on Ebay for new ones, $599 ...
  • Great pictures as usual, Marco. Looks like your wife is doing well health wise, best wishes for tht both of you in this new year!
  • Replied in Ken Rockwell
    I've always found him very opinionated and he tends to loves anything Nikon and treat other brands as second tier or worse.  Yet he posts really good shots of all angles of the product, be it a ...
  • Created discussion thread A touch of Sicily for dinner.
    Wednesday night I meet up with my wife in Galveston where she is working an ongoing  project for Marathon Oil and we have a weekly dinner date. Tonight was a nice little Sicilian style place. It's ...
  • Replied in 11-22 lens
    Jesus that's like complaining about the lens caps having to be removed. It is a superwide zoom in a small package and the twisted lock position is better for storing it in a compact space.
  • Created discussion thread Galveston's old Broadway Cemetery
    I  had a few hours to kill until my wife finished with clients and we could go to our hotel so I stopped at the old Broadway Cemetery. I like cemeteries, reading the headstones and the sad statues ...
