Ok, thinking of picking up an EOS M to use as a travel camera rather than lugging my 1d3 around. Here's what I'm looking to do:

-HDR shots--I do a lot of HDR so looking to be able to do some HDR with it. How many shots does it bracket?
-Manual controls--yes, I'm a manual control freak. Just been doing it for so long, I prefer the ability to muck around and get my settings the way I want them. The wife would probably use auto.
-Possibly use my Tokina 11-16--I see I can get an adaptor to use other lenses. Anyone use it with the Tokina? Curious to how that combination works. Also, what am I losing (besides basic image quality) by using an adaptor?
-RAW--I shoot everything in RAW. I see I can do that with this camera. Any thoughts on its RAW performance?
-Ability to print larger sizes--When I get a good shot, I'll usually print it (at least 16x24 and sometimes larger). I know I'm working with 18MP (which is significantly more than my 1d3 but I know there's more to it than just that). Anyone printing larger photos from their EOS M shots?
Tripod--I've got my regular heavy duty tripod I use all of the time. For travel I'd like something a little less bulky (weight doesn't bother me, weight is your friend with a tripod, imo) but what tripods are you guys using with your EOS M?

Anyway, I'm not looking for quality rivaling my 1d3 but I'd like quality that is good enough for me to print for myself. I don't expect to make money using this camera.

I know I'm giving up a viewfinder (that's a tough one) and I know I'm giving up some other things vs a full dslr but I am looking for something which I'll be more likely to throw in a bag/in my pocket and bring along. Actually heading to Costa Rica in a couple of weeks and was thinking about this for that trip rather than lugging my other gear with me--or bringing both but not lugging my big stuff into the jungle to shoot.

I'm not sure what I'm doing but just wanted to get peoples' thoughts on the EOS M.

Thanks.

I think the EOS M could check those boxes, but you might also look at the Rebel SL1. Once you factor in the size of the adapter for EF lenses, there is not much size advantage to the M over the SL1.

-HDR shots--3 shots at 1/3 stops to +/-2?
-Manual controls--Full manual.
- Also, what am I losing (besides basic image quality) by using an adaptor? No image degradation. It is a hollow tube to place the lens further from the sensor.
-RAW--normal canon performance. Rebel T4/5 sensor with a Digic 5 chip?
-Ability to print larger sizes--haven't printed anything from it yet, but noise is very manageable at high ISO.
Tripod--the camera and kit lenses are light. I have used a point and shoot tripod with camera in self-timer shooting mode.

Should be a good travel camera, it's quite rugged. Using a heavy lens with the adaptor can be an issue though because of the balance and the lack of having your face against the back of the camera to steady it. Don't expect to get any changing focus, action shots. Video recording is very nice, and frame grabs from the videos are very useable for touristy pictures, and the recording will auto pause and take a full resolution picture with a shutter press then automatically go back to recording video.
It is much quieter than a mirrored camera. This could be very convenient is some places you may go to.

Bald Eagle - The M did ok for static subjects with the 55-250, but I would have picked something else if I was at home.

Did some tests to compare my M to my 6d and at ISO3200 they looked very good. And 6d is better than 1dmk3 (picture quality wise) so speaks highly of EOS-M IMHO. I have not yet printed any shots though.

Just purchased an 18-55mm from a fellow member and after testing out it seems to be nearly silent at focusing compared to the 22mm. Is anybody else 22mm louder than their 18-55?

I wouldn't call the 22 loud, but there is an electronic motor noise. I don't hear the 18-55 at all.

Yes of course. It's not anywhere as loud compared the EF35 f/2.:D

I just mean it has a sound that 18-55mm doesn't produce. Almost like a fly passing gas. :lol:

Got a M with a 22 and a silicon cover from Japan. Heading out for a try out (walking in the bush reserve).

So far... the book says the "meter" in man mode is to be interpreted from how dark or light the screen view appears. Whiskey-tango? Because there is a screen brightness setting to adjust for daylight conditions too. So if you do the latter... the former will be wrong.

Have I got that straight?
... May its not so bad - maybe removing the meter software is one of the many little refinements that accounts for the big difference in weight between the M and a 5D.

There's a meter displayed on the LCD on there just like on the SLR, just use that.
