techmadesimplified: Many people criticize the EOS M for have slightly slower autofocus, but
what they dont realize is that with contrast based autofocus, you cant use
it for sports shooting. Even the best and newest Olympus OMD EM5 cant do
sports photography. Its not as procise and fast like traditional phase
detection autofocus. The mirrorless cameras are not sport shooters because
everytime it takes a picture the screen goes blank and continues focus
while shooting drops the shot per second way down. The specs that every
mirrorless camera always gives is with autofocus lock. So sports shooting
you still need a fast DSLR. Dont get me wrong I love mirrorless, the kind
of photos I take don't require fast focusing. I have a sony nex 3n and its
great. I was planning on buying an adapter that had full autofocus for
canon EF and EF-S lenses for E mount, but seeing how slow the autofocus was
going to be anyways. I bought a canon eos m. Planning on buying the adapter
to fit EF lenses on EOS M. The adapter is way cheaper than the adapter for
the sony. 3rd party adapter is $60 and original canon adapter is $150,
while for the sony china made adapter is $150 and metabones is $300-400.
Next camera that im buying is the olympus epl5 when it drops to $300.
Misho5z: it is a real person.. I doubt it'd be a commercial for canon, the guy
doesn't even speak english.. Just because it has good quality and isn't
crap like some people's videos are doesn't mean he is promoting canon
Gigi Jacobs: I just want something easy like a point and shoot but better video than
let's say the Galaxy s4 of which I plug in shot gun mics with a TRRS
adapter in the headset out. I'm not a cinemaphotograher-I just want better
video and easy to use. Is this the camera for it's on sale for $350 but
don't know if it's right for videos for YouTube, etc. Also there is a
choice of different lens-I just want the smallest and easiest. Thank you in
n33oh: music is DISTRACTING!
2how: I think it better than the old one. Easy to focus in most situation.
