Has anyone tried using FD lenses on this camera, if so did you manage to focus to infinity?

Yes, it works really well.

which FD/FL to EOS adapter is everyone using? I see several options are available, and all have their high and low reviews.

I used the M with firmware 2.02 all last weekend. Carried for typical family happy snaps as we walked.
I only have the 22mm. It was bare bones mode as I learnt the set up and got some prac. It is certainly a pocket camera.

Do you guys find it tough to manual focus with the touch screen?

When I was walking around with my EOS-M and 35-105mm FD lens on a bright sunny day last week, i kept on trying to look for the viewfinder only to realize I could only relay on the screen... :(

What do you guys do to compensate for this?

Wait, so those really cheap (practically free) FD lenses fit the EOS-M? Do they fit straight to the body or is there a special adapter other than the one they are selling?

Dang. That would be cool.


Thank you. bw!

there are a bunch of adapters on ebay. No electronics of course, but they can work.

The chipped adapters have to be taped off, as the body will want to update the lens firmware.

Since the EF-M mount is much shallower than the FD mount, you won't have any issue reaching infinity like when using FD on regular EF mount. I haven't tried it, but I know this to be true.

Thanks for your replies. I was thinking of getting a used Sony Nex for use with my FD lenses, but will certainly consider the EOS M.

This is the location where Merle has his last drink and then leads the zombies to where the Governor's men are waiting. They plan to ambush Rick and the gang, but get ambushed by Merle and his zombie parade.

The second picture is the intersection where Rick tells Shane that Laurie and Carl are now off limits. For those who watched the entire second season, you know how well that worked out.

The last pic is a different angle of the mill where Rick first meets the Governor and where the Governor gets ambushed by Merle and the zombies in season three.

What's interesting about many of these locations is that you can tell the show's producers are saving them for future episodes. There are a lot of "no trespassing" signs here and there, and the signs are new. There are quite a few small towns in this area that appear abandoned but are, in fact, being leased by whoever pays for production (AMC?).

Like I mentioned before, every single set is very close to where I live (Peachtree City, Georgia). Some sets are five minutes from my house. Others are about fifteen minutes. A few from season one are half an hour away, and the furthest sets are an hour. I plan to photograph all of them, including the prison (which is actually Raleigh Studios in Senioa, Georgia. Heavily guarded by fences, barbed wire, guards, etc. It's a sound stage studio that serves anyone who wants to use them, but The Walking Dead took over a few years ago. I assume they still rent out space and time to others, however, as Raleigh Studios is a business).

Note: the second and third pics are HDR. I don't remember if the first pic is or not. All my Walking Dead set locations are shot on the EOS-M with the 22mm prime lens. I do have some photos with my old Nikon as well, but I'll be going back to those locations to re-shoot.

Hi,
thanks for the background and location information. And nice pics too :D

Maybe this could really turn out fun. There are 300-500mm FD lenses for 100-200 bucks on KEH. Seems too good to be true.

I realize it's manual focus, etc., but so what.


Thank you. bw!
