Default Post your EOS-M pictures!

I am calling on all EOS-M owners to post more pictures on this section of the forum. It is too quiet here! Here are my test shots taken this morning. All pictures were taken with my Sigma 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM lens. The pictures turned out OK. I find that shooting under bright sunlight is very challenging using the LCD screen to frame the pictures. I need a LCD viewfinder like DonalDuc suggested to improve my view so I can better focus my subjects.

Pete,

Thanks you for your comments. the EOS-M has a very good Digic 5 sensor who is capable of taking good pictures even with a not so good Jack of all trade but master of none lens like the Sigma 18-250mm super zoom lens. This is a good addition to Canon users who already has a DSLR with a few lenses because they are usable on the EOS-M through an adapter. Taking pictures outdoors with this camera is no easy task because it is difficult to use the LCD screen for framing and focusing under bright sunlight. It is probably one of the major reason why this camera is not selling well until Canon decides to sell them at deep discount. However, this is a great indoor camera which will give you excellent even without using a flash. When my LCD viewfinder/magnifier get here, I will take it out to test drive outdoors again.

The Chow Chow in the picture belongs to my friend Winston. I had one like that 30 years ago. The trademark of this breed of dog is the purple tongue and is a Chinese breed.

Default Macro with 21mm Velo extension tube+18-55mm kit lens

Taken with a tripod with lens set to 55mm, f'5.6, 1/10sec, ISO 400. 1 and 2 Euro coins.

The kit lens is actually an EF-S 18-55mm not the 18-55mm STM.

Default A few flowers around the water fountain

There were a lot of butterflies in that garden. I didn't have many long lens with me. These were all I could get. The last picture was the top of the small water fountain where water was coming out.

Nice looking pictures, this camera seems to do a great job. We only picked up the 18-55M and the 22m lenses. Your thought is if we need to use our bigger lenses then we will break out the bid DSLR cameras. Well that's is our thought of the day for now.
Didn't get out with the camera much this weekend but did get one nice shot of a sunset. Will try and post that picture tonight we I get home. We where quite impressed with how the pictures are tunning out.

I have only the 22mm f/2 STM and did not use it for testing the camera. I have tried the Sigma 18-250mm super zoom and the Canon 17-40mm f/4 L. Both works well. The pictures quality on the L lens look better because of better optics. However, the 17-40mm does not have IS and shooting pictures with the preying mantis posture increases the chances of getting fuzziness due to hand shaking. Also, shooting under bright sunlight can be challenging without an EVF.

Everything I have works, the 430EX II flash, all of my Canon lenses EF or EF-S except the EF 50mm f/1.8 which doesn't work in AF but MF works okay. The Velo extension tube set works as well in macro shooting.
