Nice amateur camera hampered by inadequate battery life (to which there seems no solution).
Pimpernel Sandybanks, Amazon
11 March 2016
Summary: Amateur here. 5 starts for convienience, sensor, image quality -1 star for poor autofocus, not enough lens options, weak grip, and a battery that doesn't last long enough...and doesn't give you a battery grip option.
Summary: Underrated due to some early problems with the firmware, now completely corrected with version 2.02. With the Canon adapter you can use EF and EF-S lenses, and with third party adapters you can also use the older manual focus FD lenses.
Excerpt: install ML, buy a lot old FD lenses and an adapter, it's perfect for video. And it's cheap! Thoth screen is the best I ever use, just like my cellphone If you doing still, don't buy it! The AF is slow
Excerpt: This review might come a bit late, but as Canon seems to be expanding their M series mirrorless cameras, I decided to include my point of view. Im a professional videographer and photographer, so for my memory photos I expect them to be memories, but also to have a certain level of quality.
Summary: I read this comprehensive review before purchase and you should too: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/canon-eos-m/canon-eos-mA.HTM I'm an amatuer photog for more than 40 years. Until recently, my only concession to digital photography was the purchase of inexpensive Canon point-n-shoots.
