"EOS M, Burger King Bust, Flash Trigger" - Digital Photography Podcast 335

The Canon EOS M mirrorless camera has been officially announced. We've had some discussion on TDS about "is it the next camera for you," and I cover that conversation as the top story this week.

Then we get in to the Burger King Bust. Three employees at the hamburger shack photographed themselves standing in lettuce bins used for preparation. Then published the photo online. They were tracked down via geodata and fired.

And finally, the $25 wireless flash trigger from Cowboy Studio. What a deal! All of this and more on this week's TDS podcast.

Hi Derrick,

Like you I'm a Canon DSLR shooter (40D to 7D to 5D2), and went for the OMD this year because I want something lighter for travel, etc. I'm underwhelmed by the Canon EOS M. I think the APS-C size sensor is a negative - for me, the smaller size/lighter weight of m4/3 was one of the big draws, but as I understand it, with an APS-C sensor you can't make the lenses any smaller, as m4/3 can. For example, a 24/70 2.8 will still have to be a big lens (or see Sony, where the 18-200 for NEX is similar size to any 18-200 for crop sensors). I love the small lenses like the Olympus 45 1.8 or Panasonic 20 1.7, but it feels like the EOS M won't be able to have similar glass as the sensor requires big lenses.

Cheers and thanks for the podcast,


Regarding GPS tagging... Facebook strips all EXIF/GPS data. Good and Bad.. but just wanted to let you know.


Hi, I think the APS-C size is not necessarily making a big lens: it depends also on the distance lens-sensor which is longer in a standard DSRL (due to the space needed for the mirror).
Besides the Olympus, I think in this "segment" of APS-C size mirror-less one reference is also the Leica X1 (and now the X2).
