I bought my first SLR in 1984, yes, I know viewfinders! There is little stability difference and about one to one and a half feet from your face is where you hold a camera to use the lcd screen....
Because most people would rather see a normal color shot at 1080 than a 4K shot that shows only a black screen.
Have you seen the video posted of this camera's results? They are amazing, no other camera in the market comes even close!
@FXR So all those Canon cameras I see being used(by far the majority) at all sporting events, red carpet premieres, etc. are being used by "grandmas, soccer moms and teens"? I never noticed that....
@SFXR lemmings follow the piper that says the dynamic range of the sensor is the most important thing of a camera system. But people put their hard earned cash in the system that gives them what...
SXFR, sales numbers emphatically prove otherwise!
Seems like Canon might have been better off taking away features of the one model making it more automatic and adding a few more enthusiast's features to the other one.
"arms length" right, have you ever used a camera w/o a vf before? Unless you are taking a selfie you don't hold them away from you at arms length!
Or those might be expensive complicted additions for the vast majority of buyers of this camera.
But you want micro adjusting and auto ISO programming and complain that it is already too complicated for beginners?
Samsung includes their cell phones in their camera sales numbers, is what I have read.
Yes, they do with each generation getting faster, but the EOS-M' have always had very accurate AF.
or we can stay with Canon and use the sme sensor her in the EOS -M and get mirrorless with an APS-C sized sensor and 24MP for cropping with.
or we can stay with Canon and use the same sensor here in the EOS -M and get mirrorless with an APS-C sized sensor and 24MP for cropping with.
I always thought one of the big reasons to buy a Canon was so you did not HAVE to shoot RAW, the OOC jpegs already have what you want!
Agreed JJ Rodin.
These Rebels do have a Contrast+Phase AF Hybrid sensor although it may come into play only when using the Live View mode.
There is a sense for native users that also want to use the same lens on their DSLR.
With the EF - EF-M adapter this lens is still less than 2 1/2 inches long seems to make good sense for an M owner!
Maybe they are planning on adding IS to their upcoming 50 f/1.4 release, leaving this as a low cost alternative?
