CSC : Digital Compact System Cameras - This new category of digital Compact System Cameras with interchangeable lenses was mislabeled for a time as "Mirrorless Cameras" by those forgetting about "Mirrorless" Rangefinder cameras.  Such confusion is easily understandable, since interchangeable rangefinder cameras were only recently introduced in 1932.  hmm.    CSC or Compact System Camera is probably the best category description to date, although I am fond of the old RFF desigation of  CEVIL  indicating Compact Electronic Viewfidner Interchangeable Lens.   This forum is here at RFF because via adapters these cameras offer an inexpensive way to use rangefinder lenses on digital cameras -- in addition of just about every 35mm SLR lens you can think of.  All  offer the photo enthusiast an incredible array of adopted lenses which was not possible before these new digital formats.   This group continues to grow in popularity and new camera models!

Joe, great shots. Love this little camera, with it's EOS menus and IQ. I have the 11-22, 18-55, and 55-200 lenses now, and am having a blast! It's not going to replace my 5D2, but it is a great holiday/snapshot kit. Great fun!

Yes, I like the snow for a little while but we only get it every other year and then not much - I wouldn't have emigrated from England to a place with a worse climate now would I?
Gorgeous sunshine and 8C today but here's an EOS M pic from a couple of days ago showing more typical dull February light.

that light looks pretty good to me...nice & soft...
we get lots of sunny winter days here, along with the snow...it can be blinding at times.

All,

The pics look very good. How do you compare handling (incl. AF speed) and fun factor to your various other cameras?

i have limited experience so far but...i like the feel of the small body...if it had a finder built in it would be a more familiar feeling but using the lcd on the back grows on you (did me anyway)...af speed for single shot shooting is fine...not the fastest but it works!
not an action camera by any stretch of the imagination...i understand the m2 and the soon to be m3 are faster...

thanks randy!
not cumbersome at all...with the wrist strap i have taken off the grip and it feels comfy...i do keep hitting my forehead when putting the camera up to my eye...forgetting there is no finder can be dangerous at times...

the camera is so small that i need to figure how to hold it more steady, getting quite a few blurry shots.

Joe, keep an eye on the shutter speed if you are using aperture priority. In my experience, the M's firmware is programmed to keep ISO low at the expense of shutter speed. This is why the camera will insist on selecting say 1/30 or 1/20 while keeping the ISO at 200 (or whatever the base is in auto).

I find the size of the camera (which is great) and the ergonomics (which really aren't) create issues with these shutter speeds. And I don't have problems with shaky hands etc. It's just silly that you can't select a minimum shutter speed along with a max ISO.

i also had the auto iso set pretty low...i changed that yesterday...i should compare what the camera selects with my fuji...the xe1 seems to 'think' like i do!

I know it's not Av mode, but the best way around this is M mode with Auto ISO, and set your shutter speed as desired.

I just came back from the thrift store with a 50 /1.8 metal mount in pristine condition for 20 $
When I mentioned I only wanted the lens the store employee took it off an Eos-620 marked for 50 $ and put another lens on the body.
My lucky day I guess.
Its mounted on the M now .

That's a good tip. I can be so lazy sometimes.
