Hate the touch screen & hate that there is no viewfinder....that's just dumb.Thats probably why they discontinued and going to bury this failed experiment in history when the M2 comes out.But hey for the price, portability, the ability to use my L glass on it and the IQ being that of a crop all packed in that tiny little body which fits into my pocket,I can deal with the touchscreen and no viewfinder :)


Get out and shoot

Very weird that people don't like the touchscreen. I seriously wish my 6D had one after using the M... in fact, I often find myself touching the 6D's screen expecting a reaction :lol:

I'm the same way! I routinely touch to swipe when reviewing not thinking about it. I don't understand why people don't like the touch screen. When you bought the camera you knew what it was and what it wasn't. Yes, the screen was very sensitive to my palm. I went to ebay and bought the Selens hot shoe thumb grip and voila, no more palm bumping the touch screen.

I should clarify about the touch screen: I said I didn't like it and wish it didn't have one. That's not exactly what I meant. What I meant was that I wish I had the option of turning the touch feature off at times. I love using center-point focus, and sometimes I accidentally bump the screen when holding the camera and it shifts focus to somewhere else.

Also it won't lock on center-point focus. I wish there was a way to keep it there (when I want it on center) and that touching the screen in other places would have no effect (when set that way).

Not sure if that was clear.

I can handle not having a viewfinder, although it would be nice. But being compact is good, and a viewfinder would mess that up.

I'm getting a 6D soon, but I won't give up my M. It's just too much fun.

I'm excited (but the money I'll be spending on gear is a bummer). I'm trying to work my way in to the entertainment industry here in Atlanta. I've been able to interact fairly successfully with many of the cast/crew of The Walking Dead, plus there is a huge new studio being built in our small county about ten miles from my house (Pinewood Studios--Harry Potter, James Bond, and more). The area is exploding with opportunities that I'd like to join.

I understand the frustration about focus point. I also find it odd that I cannot prevent the focus point shifting accidentally.

What I find odd is that the touch screen doesn't feel being at the same level of recent phone screens. There is an odd unresponsiveness in the screen, but that may be because of unpowered processor driving the touch screen. Nice idea but still needs improvement. And the screen is actually too small for good swipes and zooming (and I don't even have very big hands/fingers).

I do like the swipe features in playback. Very intutive. However, I usually use my Ipad for reviewing. I have the Mobi Eye-Fi card. I set the camera on RAW + Jpeg and the Jpegs shoot right over to the Ipad as I'm driving away from a location. Then, I can quickly review which shots came out right and are worth extra processing or deletion. The pics come in quickly, too. Generally they transfer close to the speed I take them.

It's also made it fun to process on the Ipad at times (just jpegs...no raws). It's not serious processing, but sometimes the Ipad will do things I hadn't thought of. I have about ten apps for processing, and occasionally a filter or adjustment will make me say, "wow. That's cool."

That's cool! I never use the Ipad for editting before and may give it a try. I have the M and Eye-Fi set to transfer only locked images so I don't end up deleting 300 of test shots haha...

The kids love the M and with the 18-55 lens, they love the video even more.

Same here. Before M I thought I wouldn't buy a camera without VF but screen on M is so nice. Wish my dSLRs did that. Never used a fancy phone even though I worked at a place which invented the smart phone.:)

Whenever I switch back to my 5D II, I get mixed up and try touching the screen expecting it to do something lol.
