waterscapes usually look a little off of the level when you aren't perpendicular to the shoreline. Make buildings or trees as vertical as possible and try to ignore the shoreline.

So my wife's P+S bit the dust and I grabbed her the new ELPH 330 HS as a replacement. It has built in wi-fi that is pretty slick. I like the 10x zoom, too, since the M doesn't have any telephotos. As a bonus I discovered that if I put a mem card from my M in the ELPH 330, I can use it's wi-fi to transfer (JPEG or the JPEG from RAW+L) images to my phone.

So this should be a pretty nice travel set up. I can carry the EOS M + 22mm for low light/DOF shots. And she get the 330HS with 24-240mm zoom range to cover all the general stuff. And then we can instantly share them from either camera just by swapping cards. I was debating adding a zoom to my M kit, but I think this will work better and at $170 wasn't much more than an 18-55 anyway.

I really wish the M had wifi. I think they could have done it considering they have $140 compacts with it built in (i.e. ELPH 130 IS)

No need to swap cards if you use an EyeFi card with the M. I use one and it works great for sending to my phone.

It does, and I've used it, but eye-fi cards really suck in use. I had a 4GB one and recently sold it. Connecting and transferring to the phone takes 5x as long as it does with the Canon wi-fi and the software and options are extremely limited. With the mobi you have to transfer EVERY image to your phone, and with the connect there is a complicated setup procedure on the computer that took an hour the first time (and I'm an I.T. expert). It also has a strange setup where you can only pair with one device. If I pair it with my wife's phone, I can't pair it with my phone or the computer. With the Canon Wi-Fi I have a menu where I can choose any number of devices to pair it with and connect to. Not to mention a 16GB eye-fi card is nearly $100, while a regular 16GB card is $15.

The built in Canon Wi-Fi is so much better it is not even a contest. And I really only care about this feature when I am out traveling as normally I'd rather just transfer and share images with my computer if I'll be home that night.

I'm sure the next iteration of the EOS M will have built-in wifi...just another piece of tech to suck up battery life.

I'm perfectly happy taking out my memory card and inserting into my card reader to get my photos. I am never in that much of a hurry to want to wirelessly transfer images from the camera to a computer/mobile phone/tablet.

It's only on when you turn it on (unlike some of the wireless SD cards). You have to go in to playback mode and then turn on the wireless to connect to a device or network. So it isn't going to suck up battery unless you tell it to, and again, only in playback.

I am too, for the most part. My wife wanted the wireless mainly for instagram, since you can't post from a PC to instagram and she is not very satisfied with her phone's camera. She also doesn't really use the computer that much.

It is nice to be able to post to social media while traveling sometimes. And you can do it from the hotel, but sometimes doing it in the moment is desirable. I don't think it is a critical feature, but given the cost I feel like it should (and probably will be) added to most cameras before long.

That's odd. I have my iPhone, iPad and my wife iPhone paired with the card.

The new Eye-Fi Mobi are different version to the 4GB you used. The Mobi only comes in 8 or 16GB. Video below explains all the new features.

Can you transfer to all 3 of your devices at the same time?

I've tried with 2 devices, and it can only transfer to only one.

The Mobi also transfers ALL images to your phone. Not ideal. I don't need a whole day's photos on my phone, just the few I want to share. And I guess I can pair the other ones with my phone and computer, but it sends photos through the phone to the computer and not the computer directly. I'm just not a fan. Too many quirks and limitations compared to the built in wifi.

If I was going to get a wifi card I'd get this one: http://www.lzeal.com/e​n/products.asp (external link)

You can turn the wifi on and off and instead of pushing the photos you just use an app on your phone and the built in WAP on the card to pull the photos from any device.

It's a great lens, I was amazed with how sharp it is wide open. I think it might be sharper than my other two Yashica ML 50's @f/2, if not it's pretty much the same :cool:

I actually just received my Yashica 50 f/2 today (with a Fotodiox adapter). It seems to work great on my 5D Mark II, but when I put it on the M via the Canon adapter, I cant seem to take a picture. Pressing the shutter does nothing, tried AV and Manual mode. Any settings I am missing?

Thanks!

I shoot in RAW+JPG with an Eye-Fi. I send the jpgs to Photosmith on my iPad over WiFi where I do my first pass rating and reviewing, which I can do in the field. Then when I get home I import the RAWs into Lightroom and then sync the metadata updates from the ipad to Lightroom so I can immediately start editing my selects.

The combination of an Eye-Fi + ipad + Photosmith has completely changed my workflow and saved tons of time in post.
