More shots from the EOS M

Went to the airport yesterday to pick up my wife.

So i make use of the extra time I have to explore my EOS M.

While i Wait - Moving...

E shot is created with the use of HDR mode in the Camera. Yes, this is not a HDR photo. But i make use of the 3 shots taken in the auto mode to create the moving feel of the luggage. :)

While I wait - our different wait

EOS M user hands on experience.

I finally get hold of the Brand New EOS M camera 2 days ago, and would like to share some user experience on it.

The New EOS M camera is the first mirrorless interchangeable lens camera that Canon release. It has an APSC size sensor and its small enough to pocketed with the pancake lens on.

Its looks small, but have the solid and heavy feel when i handle it.

Below are some photos of the size comparison.

EOS M vs Small Compact camera.

EOS M vs Fuji X100 

 The Auto-Focus is quite fast, quiet and accurate to me. Of course it may fish a little in poor light condition. The general feel is quite good. Maybe i had achieve a high tolerance level after using DP1 and X100. The Manual Focus is done electronically, by turning the focus ring. Its quite fast, almost like turning the mechanical focus ring.

The indoor focusing test

 I tried shooting with multiple shoot mode, and with a Class 10 SD card to test out the buffer speed. It manage to shoot continuously for about 100 Large Jpeg shots before it shows a little sign of overloading. And its ready to reshoot again in less than half a sec after releasing the shutter button. I stopped slightly after 100 shots as I dont think i will machine gun the shoots away for so many shots. 

The Buffer test.

 Below are some of my test shot this morning.

One thing i dont really like about the camera is that the touch screen shutter cannot be locked. Thus just 2 touch could have activated the shutter.

 Overall its an interesting camera to play with. Its small and portable to be the spare camera during jobs, for daily carry around use and travel use.
