    Anyone here used an original Canon EOS M?

    It's arrived - mint, boxed and with all the original accessories still sealed in their bags (including the rather dinky 90EX flash unit). As a 'stick it in yer jacket pocket' camera, it'll do very nicely indeed. The little 22mm lens is great, the touchscreen very responsive and the autofocus good enough for my needs (no supercars at Silverstone on my photographic agenda). Planning to take a nice long walk through Thrunton Woods at the weekend. I'm sure the EOS M/22mm combination will do very well there.

    Thanks - I've just found a couple of reviews of the EOS M with updated firmware, which do suggest improved AF performance. We'll see.
  3. I recently bought an EOS M50 with the 15-45 kit lens. It's a sweet little camera - pretty much ideal as a travel system. I've had my eye on the EF-M 22mm f2 for a while, so when I spotted one for sale with an EOS M (the original M series camera) for £160, I jumped straight in - basically, a nice lens with a (nearly) free camera attached to it. The package should arrive in a few days, so while I'm waiting, I'm curious to know if the EOS M is really as disappointing a camera as its reputation might suggest. Most of the criticism seems to centre on its slow AF performance, but I wonder if that will bother me, as most of the things I shoot are either stationary (landscape) or at least, move no faster than I do (ie not very fast at all these days). What do you think? At worst, I reckon I could sell the EOS M and end up with a very cheap 22mm prime, so I don't think I'll lose, whatever happens. Cheers

    Squeezebox Touch question...

    Cheers. I'll blow the dust off and plug it in - I seem to remember that the player has to be switched on and connected in order to do anything via the online account...

    Squeezebox Touch question...

    Thanks - will drop you a line in the morning.
  6. I've just rediscovered my old Squeezebox Touch, which I haven't used for quite some time. I'm planning to sell it, but understand it needs to be deregistered from my Logitech account. If I simply delete my account, will that also automatically deregister all associated devices, or is it more complicated than that? Cheers
  7. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0791VZ9FN?tag=22 David Bowie - Stage (3LP set - 2017 remaster). Worth a look at £12.85, I think.
  8. My favourite thing about threads like this is when people say things like 'once you've packed your item, imagine it being thrown off a cliff, stamped on by an elephant, stabbed with a javelin and set on fire. If you aren't confident that your parcel will survive that, you haven't packed it well enough.' I haven't read the whole thread - has anybody said that yet?

    You can't do that.
  12. That's old hat - the cool kids have moved on to double-blind and deaf testing. It produces fascinating results, such as: 'I can honestly say that these may or may not be the best or worst speakers I've never heard (or seen). Or maybe I've just connected a hosepipe to the back of the sideboard.' It's the future, I just know it.
  13. Hmmm, so I'd only be allowed to post in one of those threads if I sign a disclaimer promising I won't be a 'naysayer'? Good luck with that idea. Wait till Rabski does a night shift trying to police that - you'll see a new definition of 'good moderation', I'll wager.
