Let's Try! Rent The Canon EOS M For Free (7 Days, If You Are In Japan) | CanonWatch CanonWatch
I would save a lot of money if all camera firms did this!
Isn't this just the same as internet sales return policies in the US??? :smile:
On the bright side, maybe this is a good signal to Canon -- "your camera isn't cutting it! go back and try again!"
Hmm but the idea is that you have to give them back Karen ...
Most of the time when people complain about a problem, I take it with a grain of salt.
-Fuji orbs don't bother me
-Nikon oil spots don't bother me
-DP1 and E-PL2 red spots don't bother me
-Large amounts of dust in lenses doesn't bother me
-Sony NEX AF speed doesn't bother me
-Micro 4/3 DOF control doesn't bother me
-Lightroom artifacts with X-Trans and EXR sensors don't bother me
-Canon G1X AF speed doesn't bother me
-E-P1 AF speed doesn't bother me
-Shutter shock doesn't bother me
-NEX lens size relative to body size doesn't bother me
Well I tried the EOS M a couple days ago, and the AF speed on that camera with the pancake really bothered me. Can't imagine that changing after a week of use!
Amin: THAT is a testament to slow autofocus. You should send that along to Canon.
I hope he just did, lol.
If Canon isn't following the social networking side of the camera market, then they'll end up producing ... well, something like the EOS-M!!!
I feel bad saying it, but it's an honest impression.
I've bought many, many Canon cameras (A95, S50, G7, G9, G10, G11, S90, S95, 300D, 350D, 10D, 20D, 30D, 5D, and I'm sure I'm forgetting some). I want to see Canon do well in this space.
Hopefully the one I tried had a bad setting or old firmware, but it was dog slow.
I have a few dogs that take umbrage with that last comment.
Finally.... something bothers Amin.:smile:
With therapy, I'm sure I could do that! Now I see you've got a new lady in your life. Must be serious, she's not just for the weekends!
That reminds of an old joke my Dad used to tell.
A nun joins a convent with very strict guidelines which includes absolute silence. Only silent prayer is allowed. Each nun is is allowed to say one thing every 10 years to share a thought with the community that comes from deep devotion and contemplation of all things spiritual.
So after she had been there 10 years, she emerged from her room to share her thoughts with the rest of the group. She cleared her throat and said "My room is cold". She then returned to her room for another 10 years of prayer and reflection.
10 years pass and she again emerges ready to share that which she has divined from her quiet contemplation. This time with a quiet voice she said "My bed is hard". She then returned to her room for another 10 years of prayer and reflection.
Eventually another 10 years pass and all the nuns get together to share their thoughts. She stood before the group and said, "My room is cold. My bed is hard. And I quit". One of the nuns leaned over and said "I thought she would never leave. All she's done since she got here is complain"
Is the problem slow focus confirmation like the Canon G1X, or actually just slow focus? The G1X focuses fairly quickly but then has a pause before it lights up the green box which gives the impression of it being much slower than it is.
There's several youtube examples of the AF speed. This one looks the worst for the M, though there are some that make it seem not quite as bad
I think it was both, Nic, but I only tried it for a few minutes. I've used the Canon G1X and found that autofocus to be acceptable. This seemed much slower.
Well, that's disappointing and hard to understand why it should be like that. I handled one of these for the first time today, although unfortunately it was display-only with the battery removed. It feels so small! I really need more real estate on the grip side of the body. The lens mount dominates the front of the camera and encroaches a long way towards the right hand side (looking from behind).
Being unable to use manual focus magnification in bulb mode bothers me.
