Default Pictures taken on a gloomy day

Taken with the EF-S 55-250mm kit lens with the Viltrox adapter. ISO 1600, 1/1250 sec, various aperture f/11-16. On gloomy days with little sunlight, the noise becomes more noticeable than pictures taken on a sunny day.

Default Few more pictures with the 55-250mm kit lens

I notice there are few ducklings around the lagoons. I was told that the racoons, Night Herons, Egrets were feeding on the Mallard's eggs. The Egrets are still nesting on the 2 trees by the lagoon. So with nothing else available, they become my test subjects for the new camera. My other favorite test subject is my friend's puppy, Elsa. Finally, a picture of the lagoon.

I love dogs. I used to have 3 of them in my house. I thought they were better behaved than most kids.

With the LCD Viewfinder attached to the screen, it greatly enhanced the useability of the EOS-M making it workable under bright daylight. However, when I want to change settings, I have to detach the viewfinder to gain access to the touch screen menu due to lack of function buttons on the camera. A small sacrifice on convenience so I can have eye level viewfinder function.

After these series of picture, I can tell the difference between an EF-S kit lens and a L lens. The former lacks the color saturation, highlights and details in the shadows comparing to the L lens (17-40mm f/4 L). That is why the color on these pictures look kind of subdued. Well, you get what you pay for and that is the bottom line.

Well we went with the 22mm & 18-55mm lens set instead of the lens adapter route. For us the whole idea was to have a camera that is easy to carry around when out jsut having fun. We will use our DSLR's (7D & 70D) for the lets say fancy/artsy pictures.
