I found a great case for the EOS-M. Stoked!

It's the Lowepro Santiago DV35. It's actually a "compact video camera case" I found at Best Buy for twenty bucks. It's a hardshell case and the camera fits in perfectly with the 22mm prime lens.

The case comes with a loop for a belt, and a shoulter strap. Plus, it's in the shape of a football, so you can always toss the camera back and forth while waiting in line at Disney.

I've just got home with a few shots taken with the M and although ill kept it I'm a bit disappointed.
The shots are a bit soft, they look lust like my EF-S kit lens. I thought this was supposed to be better.
I'm also finding the screen a bit of a nightmare, I keep moving the AF point but accident.

Overall though its a fantastic bargain, I'm just glad I didn't get it when it was first released.

Sounds like you're talking yourself into at least picking up the 22mm.... ;)


(Although it's weird, most reviews of the 18-55mm comment on it's sharpness, at least at the center. http://www.imaging-resource.com …n-eos-m/canon-eos-mA4.HTM (external link))

Its going to be a toss up between the adapter or 22mm. cant have both, but want both lol.

I too thought the kit lens would be much better than the old version. What im seeing is a sort of dreamy look on high-ish contrast areas, espcially in the distence. Im shooting raw and using LR5.
Im not saying its a deal breaker, just a bit of a disappointment. I went out tonight with my mate who had his 650D with him. He had a 18-135 STM on his and his shots looked wonderful. Maybe i just need to get used to it but it does sound like ill need one or the other of the above.

One other thing (forgive the moaning, im really not down on this camera), i ended up with a lot of JPGs tonight. Is it really that easy to change the quality setting, without knowing it? Is there a good way to prevent this?
Al i want is raw, 100% of the time.

Im definitely not sending the camera back. It does feel more like a super charged Powershot S110 to me, but thats cool. Its not going to out my 5DMKIII anyway.

Ok, so heres a shot im really pleased with, my very first posted M shot. Its been processed but you cant polish a turd as they say. Im happy with how the camera handled this scene.

I have problems like that when I leave the camera around my neck with it turned on. When it bounces off me, the touchscreen is active and all sorts of crazy stuff happens. I've learned to turn it off after using it, then turning it back on when I need it. Kind of a pain, but better than having the settings change.

And, by the way, I was SO lucky to get the adapter and 18-55 cheap off eBay when they were out. I think that maybe the recent price drop killed the stock of stuff on eBay.

Yes, ive seen a lot of complaints about the screen when wearing the camera. I guess ill get used to it.
I am enjoying the camera though, its definitely growing on me.
I missed out, just, on getting a it with the adapter in in for free. I told a few people about this offer, as it was also the cheapest deal i could find in the UK, but on the day i tried to order they were out of stock and the deal is finish. Typical.
I do think ill go for the adapter first. I can get one for £110 here in the UK. Probably not the cheapest but i can get it on next day delivery so will have it by the weekend.
Ive also got the Canon hood for the 18-55.

Where is that slow brown truck? Tracking said it shipped out to the house from the shipping center here in town at 8:40am. It's now 4:44pm and no brown truck.:cry:

Very important accessory for the fat-fingered clumsy came in today...

Cheap eBay 43mm hood. Canon lens cap fits it, too.

It's just a random one. I throw them all in a drawer. I think it came off a GPS?

Could that little ring possibly scratch the side of the M?

Could be. I really don't care now that I've used it with the 22mm. I'm keeping it and scratches won't affect the IQ. ;)

:D Brown truck came while we were at dinner, yeah. Charging the batteries now so we can play with it tomorrow.
I do have one question; how do you check for firmware version? Haven't found anything in the manual on firmware.

Thanks,
Craig
