Ouuuch ... 9 months ... -59%
Ouuuch ... 9 months ... -59%
Despite the 59% drop, it is quite expensive. I would like to see it around €199/-, what it really is worth.
Same path the Nikon V1 took back in late 2012. It went from $800 down to $299.
lucky I did not consider one of those eh
I have both and enjoy them as an alternative to my iPhone for shooting everyday snap shots with better quality. These are my fun cameras.
Both have their strengths and weaknesses. The Canon's weakness is AF speed, though very accurate, the Nikon's is image noise even at 400 asa.
But the Nikon is a very capable camera with fantastic AF. The Canon has an amazingly sharp 22mm lens that is sharper than my 35L on a 5D3.
I posted a fun snap shot captured with the EOS M and 22mm shot wide open.
For bright sunshine or snow I am using a cheap display viewer - it makes a (lightfree) 9" display.
Works with ALL cameras - necessary if you make movies.
I hope your excellent example of improved camera design will make a strong impression on a lot of camera designers all over the world

I think the eeh ... 'unusual' form factor has the potential to serve as an unforgettable memento that they had been better off considering a built-in viewfinder to begin with
... and the viewfinder also should be 9" (NINE")
Did you ever try such a thing? Then you will forget all the tinytinytiny Canon viewfinders, hehehe.
Two new mirrorless Canon cameras
The first camera will replace the actual EOS-M model and the second camera will be a completely
new high end model. The autofocus will be dramatically improved and at least three lenses will be
announced within the year.

I am using my EOSM with a (tripod) pistol grip (price $25-$40) and
a display viewer ($13-$15). This display viewer has no diopter
compensation, but you can use it with glasses (very big lens).
Same pistol grips you get under names Slik, Opteka, Polaroid,
Barska, Sunpak ... don't buy for $80 or $100 or more .. or only
if YOUR name is Rockefeller.
Display viewer magnifies lcd 3x, so you get a 9" display (buy
it with 3:2). It fits exactly, you have to use a small metal
frame - build in viewer are 4 magnets - so you can attach
and remove viewer very fast.

Hot some lovely pics coming from your Eos M, but man, that full rig with pistol grip and viewfinder addon. I ask, why you are doing this to this ultra compact APS-C camera?? If you wanted a better grip, and wanted a proper viewfinder, why not get a 650D? It has exactly the same sensor, and may have better picture quality, since the sensor does not have to be on all the time for preview, and hence less heat.
Please please tell us why...
Size is no problem :-) ... I have Canon 350/450/550 - whyyyy a 650?
All have SMALL (mirror)viewfinders, ALL not suitable for video - the big problem for ALL DSLRs.
Price of 650D = € 600, 700D = € 800

why 650D, as 650D has identical APS-C sensor. Also it does video identical to the EOS m and both use a lcd at rear. I know what you mean though, no digital eyefinder but still good rear lcd. Also with 650D, it has more dials, and custom buttons, so it will be easier to change settings on the fly while videoing, vs eos m , which has a lack of buttons.
Since you are into video now, have you had a chance to compare the Sony Nex series doing 108p 24, vs the likes of EOS M?
I didn't compare (hehe and I will not compare) NEX + EOS - I know NEX7 is better :-)
Most of my videos are with NEX7 1080/50p ... EOSM cannot :-( ... NEX7 has no 24p, only 25p
Changing settings isn't a problem, if I make photos or take videos I've all time of this world :-) - that's fun, noooot work!
3D - 10mm
There is no doubt the Eos-m can be a fun camera. Personally though I would not go for the adapters to EF yet, as the Eos-m has not really proven its worth yet. Not saying that I will never get an Eos-M, but Canon's first iteration of mirrorless, has been far from a success in terms of spec, and sales.
If there was a strikingly good deal for the EOS-M I may consider it, and kit it out with the smallest lens possible, the 22mm f2.0 STM. This lens, not only is tiny, but lets in descent light, plus it is plenty sharp at f2.0. The effective focal length of 35mm is a very useful too. This setup, makes for a very pocketable solution, and hence a good every day carry around camera.
Not bad bokeh for a reflex, but I suppose highlights will be shaped a donuts as usual for that kind of lens?
Huhuhu ... you may guess twice which pol filter I will buy for 500mm.
Filter size is 34mm, but for moveable pol filter you need "front" 95mm, not "rear" 34mm
hahahahaha, all my polfilters (37mm-77mm) are between $4 and $8 and
I guarantee: you will see NO differences to B+W, Kaesemann ... for $200-$300
A 9" long hood for the tiny LCD nad no hood for the bIg lens?
95mm diameter, 73mm long hood is on the way ... for horrendously price $15
lens $ 25, adapter $ 15
The Fujian cctv lens looks good on the EOS M. It is more matching to the size of the body. How is the IQ of that lens? Is it much better than the samyang 600mm?
Fujian 35mm/1.7 is "best" cctv lens, better than cctv 25mm/1.4 and cctv 50mm/1.4 (both are vignetting)
For this price 35mm/1.7 is excellent, of course you cannot compare with lens for 10x price.
wonder how it compared with the likes of my Oly penF 40mm f1.4. That lens does not cost too much either.
Here is my Eos M with a viewfinder from Leica and the superb 22mm f2 lens. Also included a shot, full frame and cropped, made at a local jazz concert with the 70-300L at 5000 ISO on the 'scene intelligent auto' setting which I supose is like a super 'program' and just works well.
nice ivan, does the leica viewfinder cover the full frame of the 22mm f2.0 lens? Especially like your shift lens setup.
Yes, the viewfinder covers the 36mm lens of the Leica, whereas the 22mm lens of the Canon is equivalent to a 35mm lens...I have not noticed the 1mm difference in point of view!
The Eos M works and looks even better with my 24TS which is equivalent to a 38mm, very close to my favorite 35mm lens. I will post a pic of that setup soon.....

I just picked up an EOS-M with the pancake lens last week at the new, lower price. I already knew that the firmware upgrade was coming, but frankly, I didn't find the autofocus with the original firmware all that pokey. The new firmware definitely speeds things up and seems to eliminate any tendency to "hunt". I'm pretty impressed with the package as a small camera with high IQ. If I need a viewfinder I'll use one of my cameras that has a real one.
I am waiting to surprised when I open a box of Pringles!
