Heya,

BallerStatus wrote in post #17836017 (external link)
Are there any simple remotes that work with the EOS M or do you need to go thru the hassle of ML, wired connections and all that to shoot with a remote?

BTW, Wise, I purchased a set of the wireless remote/receiver to use on my 5Dc that you used before. Thanks for sharing your setups.

All remotes work the with the EOS-M if you use tragic lantern (not magic lantern; it's an older build). I use the same trigger I use with my 5D, and other cameras, with the EOS-M. But it does require the use of tragic lantern as the EOS-M does not have a native input for remote shutter releases that isn't infrared. I wanted radio so that I didn't need LOS. So I installed tragic lantern. Magic lantern is the latest versions and it lacks the audio-input port being used as a shutter remote. Only the older builds when it was tragic lantern has this. Mine has been totally stable. No problems. I just don't turn on any features at all except the audio port ability, and so nothing else, and it's totally fine.

Tragic Lantern build May 09, 2014 (V31.337). Yes, that's the real version lol. You can get it off their old website, it's still up and still serves their old builds. But this build specifically is the one I researched up that has the working audio-port input use for remote shutters that is stable on the EOS-M. Very specific version. I simply installed it per their instructions and do not use any features of it, except the audio port shutter input. And you have to enable it each time you turn it on so it's not constant. I've been using it for almost a year now, no issues. Wonderful being able to use the M remotely! With this, you can use any normal wireless shutter system that normally would work with any EOS.

Whoa! Please explain this setup? I am particularly interested in (what looks like) the remote trigger. Please describe/explain!

First of all, again, you must use tragic lantern to be able to use a radio based wired dongle with a remote radio based wireless remote for remote shutter control with the EOS-M. Natively, it lacks this. This is why the new M3 is so cool to me, it has WiFi, and so you can just use your phone and do this. But I use one remote shutter on all my cameras and will link it below. I just wanted to make it very clear that the only way to use the EOS-M remotely is to use a hack, tragic lantern, not even magic lantern, but tragic lantern and I posted the specific stable build I use above so that you can grab it if you want to try it (other versions don't work it seems; and this feature is not even available in the magic lantern builds for EOS-M!).

Here's the remote trigger I use: (LINK) (external link). It's a generic one. Pixel Oppilas. It has a wired dongle that you put into your camera's remote trigger port and it is powered on via a battery. It has a cold shoe mount so you can put it on your camera's hotshoe or into the back of a transceiver (like I did) to hold it. Nice! This thing works really well, it's radio, and it works from very far away. The remote is also on battery and totally wireless. The options allow for single shot, continuous, bulb (hold it as long as you want) and timer. Depending on which trigger version you buy, it may come with a different cable. The 1D, 5D, 7D, etc, series use the 3 prong Canon port. So it will come with a 2.5mm (male) to 3 prong male Canon port. The other ones will come with a standard 2.5mm to 2.5mm cable. I got that one. It doesn't matter though since you can buy the cables for cheap anyways and the cables on this system are totally replaceable. Nothing is hard wired.

I use this with all my EOS cameras. It works on my 1D's, my 5D, all my APS-C's and my EOS-M no problem.

The system uses the standard 2.5mm TRS termination. EOS cameras typically use 2.5mm input, or the 3 pronged port found on the higher level EOS's (my 1D, 5D, 7D, etc, all use the 3 prong port; but all my other APS-C's use a 2.5mm TRS port). The EOS-M doesn't have one. It just has a 3.5mm port for audio input, normally used for a microphone. Tragic lantern turns that port into a trigger. So you simply use an adapter to take 2.5mm TRS to 3.5mm TRS, and that's that. No fancy stuff. Cheap too. You don't have to use an adapter though. You can also just get a cheap $4 cable that is 2.5mm to 3.5mm directly. No fuss no muss!

2.5mm (male) to 3.5mm (male) for exact use no matter what version trigger you buy above, for use with the EOS-M's audio port. This works fine! (LINK) (external link) for $4.

So as you can see here, I have the Yongnuo RF603c transceiver in my hotshoe for triggering my flash off camera on the EOS-M. I then have the Oppilas remote trigger dongle on that cold shoe of my lighting trigger. I then use the cable from the trigger to the EOS-M's audio input port:

And here's the remote that triggers the shutter via radio. Just press it and boom, it fires. The flash is in the cabin off camera as that's how I exposed myself in my truck cabin while driving. No cables here. If you see a cable it's just there because I had a pile of stuff.

Thank you! I will have to try this out the next time I need a wireless shutter release!

Heya,

The EOS-M in the house in natural light. My 2 year old is napping on the cordaroy bean bag chair. Ambient window light used only.

Love how well the little APS-C sensor in the EOS-M can handle lower light even at moderate ISO (here ISO 800) and the sharpness of the 22mm F2 STM pancake is just wonderful.

SOOC shot with 1:1 crop for sharpness and clarity and noise grain inspection:

Sorry if this has been discussed in here before, but my iPad is acting slow trying to search. How does the Fotodiox adapter compare to the OEM canon adapter? My only concern is focus speed. Build quality on most Fotodiox products I have handled has been excellent.

Edit: Nevermind, I found brand new genuine OEM adapters on eBay for under $60, that makes the price difference between the two less than $20. For that cost might as well go for the OEM piece.

Heya,

The whitebox Canon is like $50~60, making it not worth even getting a third party really. I still have the Fotodiox one, for $40ish I think it was. The whiteboxes weren't as prevalent at the time. That said, even though you already got the Canon one, if anyone else comes along and reads, the Fotodiox one is made very well, fits right, lenses autofocus as they should, fairly fast (for the kind of AF it is, that's the real limitation, not the adapter).

Very best,

Fun with the EOS-M, it went to the swamp with me today, and for a drive.

Envy you:)
Very nice.
This is truly the best part of EOS M that no one understand what is in side this PnS skin tiny camera.
Wonder what security would say about Sony Mirrorless!

I took my wife's EOS M along to a few Christmas parties and got decent results. My chances of getting a good pic when I handed off the camera to family or friends went up about 100% over handing over my 5D. All with the 22mm.
