Since it won't weigh so much (depending on your lens), you can get by with a small and cheap tripod.

Edit: With mounting on the tripod ring, you might still be able to get by.

That's just you not thinking straight! ;)
I think it'll be nice using the EOS-M on a tripod. Since it won't weigh so much (depending on your lens), you can get by with a small and cheap tripod. No longer will you have to travel with your Gitzo or what have you, but with a no-name $10 tripod!

the more i think about it the more i think i could maybe get one, and just pair it with one fast prime and basically use it as a smaller back up camera/some place i wouldn't want to bring a DSLR...although i'm thinking 22mm f2 prime is a little to wide for me...i'll be interested to see what other lenses come down the pipe-line...but i'll still wait for one with a viewfinder :)

Hopefully the current model will drop in price and a newer model with a VF will replace it at the same price point. We can only hope though.

If you can't handle composing a shot without a viewfinder that is your problem. Please don't project your shortcomings onto the rest of us.

Just my observation of the many photogs that use a camera without a viewfinder. Sure, there are a few photogs that might take their time and painstakingly compose through the LCD...but that sure in Hell is not close to be the norm. Where do you see all these photographers that are making great compositions with their viewfinderless cameras. They use them to capture the moment in a snapshot.

So, please don't project your make believe world on the rest of us...because I just don't see it in the world I live in. P&S without viewfinders are taking snapshots.

Love it... awesome generalization. Guess guilty by association counts in the camera world as well. Because ALL USER of this camera will do exactly that. Thanks for the clarification, guess I need to go make my e-penis bigger by buying a 5DIII with tons of red rings to go along with it.

If that is what floats your boat, I guess you should. Or, if you want a carry everywhere P&S camera that can take a decent snapshot, then purchase this latest offering. Your choice I guess.

There are also a lot of P&S users on this forum that you put down as well ;)

Nah, they know they snapshots and are happy doing so.

This is getting a little crazy....

If you like it, buy it. If not, don't buy it.

Rumors are that a 2nd one will be released sometime this year.

For me anything that's slow to focus, doesn't have decent AI Servo, long shutter lag, blah blah blah I consider them P&S. I could care less if it has EVF/OVF, made out of gold, cost $30,000 what have you.

That is the strangest definition of a P&S I've seen yet. All the medium and large format cameras are marching on your house right now in protest! Vader, this time you win the cake! :lol:

Take care, buddy. Don't get too hot under the collar. We're all just having fun here. Well, most of us anyway ;)

Don't twist what you've been saying. You said that the viewfinder is necessary for composition and that anybody who uses the LCD is only creating snapshots.

Every landscape, architecture, product and macro photographer who uses live view while shooting disproves your theory. All of the people who managed to compose their shots using waist level finders on medium format cameras over the years disprove your theory. All of the people who have used been composing their shots the ground glass of large format cameras disprove your theory.

To be fair, after lighting and settings; I really did just point and shoot all those medium format exposures for years. :p I'd have killed for a color correct live view monitor and preview.

Biting one's lip as the frame is exposed ensures good IQ (Page 33887 of the user's manual - LOL)

The question is, did he get the shot that he wanted...

Yes, in fact I use my 5d2 predomintory for landscape using liveview...but that is not how I see people using their P&S cameras. I see them looking quickly at arms length at their LCD and snapping a shot. No concentration on composition, no paying attention to exposure etc... IE...snapshots. That is how I see all P&S, cameras without viewfinders, being used. Show me examples of P&S or cameras without viewfinders that are being used to meticulously compose a photo. I can show you millions of examples of photogs usings their Viewfinderless cameras at arms length just taking snapshots.

The bigger question is, did he have a shot in mind, or would any shot do?:)
