As you know camera companies, like Nikon, Sony, and Olympus, has started pushing out the new compact DSLR cameras. It has been promised these new compact cameras give near real DSLR quality photos, and is extremely compact and light weight due to the lack of mirror and viewfinder. The rest of the camera is pretty much the same as a big bulky DSLR as it has interchangeable lenses too with different mode switches and flash hot-shoes. Canon has now released their own compact DSLR line beginning the EOS M series cameras which is also compatible with both EF-S and EF mount lenses as long as an adapter is used. The camera is compatible with the new EF-M mount lenses with no adapter. This new camera is an 18 megapixel camera and has most of the functions a real Canon EOS DSLR would have. The new camera features a CMOS (APS-C) sensor, DIGIC 5 Image Processor, and an ISO range of 100 to 25600. Compared to a 35mm full frame sensor camera, this camera has a crop ratio of 1.6x. The new EOS M camera has all the modes a regular DSLR has (Auto, Creative Auto, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority, Manual, and Bulb) plus lot's of creative "scene modes" including Portrait, Landscape, Close Up, Sports, Night Portrait, Hand-held Night Scene Mode, and HDR Backlight Control Mode. The camera also captures crystal clear 1080p video and offers full time auto focus during the take (use STM lens for quieter/smoother focusing during video). Videos and photos can be viewed on a TV via mini-HDMI. These are just some of the features of the new EOS M series cameras. If you have $800 to spare and hate carrying your big bulky DSLR everywhere you go, or you just want to do some amateur photography work, I would recommend you to buy and try one of these cameras! If you do, please use my link! Thank you for reading!

RainbowImaging 100 Meter 2.4 GHz Wireless Shutter Release Review (Video)

This is the video review for the RainbowImaging 100 Meter 2.4 GHZ Wireless Shutter Release for cameras and DSLRs. The kit comes with the transmitter, receiver, batteries, a certification, and a badly translated instruction manual. XD The product in the video was the shutter release for the "3 pin" Canon EOS cameras. The remote also features 4 modes including single shutter, multiple shutter, bulb, and delay. The same company also makes other shutter released for other brand cameras like Canon (other type of connector), Pentax, Panasonic, Nikon, Sony, FujiFilm, and Samsung.

Zeikos Remote Shutter Release for Canon Review (Video)

This is the Zeikos Remote Shutter Release for Canon. This remote is for the 3 pin connector type cameras, not for the headphone jack type cameras. I find this remote very useful for keeping my camera still for landscape, portrait, and macro photography. Like the Canon remote, this remote has a button locking feature for Bulb exposures. The only difference between the Canon remote and this one is that this remote only costs around 1/8 (estimate) the price of a Canon remote. The Canon remote is made of the same cheap plastic this is made of, so don't be fooled!

Some of the compatible cameras:
  • 5D Series
  • 7D Series
  • 1D Series
  • 50D Series
  • Other "3-pin" type connectors or use the Canon RS-80N3
  • 3 feet Cord
  • Button Lock (Bulb)
  • 2 Step Button (Focus/Shutter Release)
  • Cost around $5 compared to Canon's $40
