you would get bokeh using a potato for those photos! close subject and massive background separation


Ah yes but it would be much better with a canon L potato.

ah yes those advanced chips give very crisp images

It's £250 from an Amazon third party seller. I picked one up when Currys had them at £150, great little camera, especially with the 22mm on.

Not the lowest price (although a time machine would be needed to take advantage of the 149 deal at currys last year). Good price, good camera. Invest in an adapter to allow the use of full size lenses.

No viewfinder! Best of luck if you ever try to take a picture when it's sunny. Do what most people do, point it in the general direction and hope for the best.:{

I got this last time for £199 from Agros after missing the Currys deal. Really good camera and the screen is fine in the sun

Doesn't seem to be that much stock. Have found one at about my 8th closest Argos. Tempted at this price, but not sure. If my local had I'd probably have bought

This was fixed with a firmware update.

I bought one of these @ £199.99 @ Argos. A good camera IMO. It is a little slow at focusing but picture quality is great with the supplied kit lens and better again with the 22mm lens which I purchased recently on e-bay for £66 (New) I also have the Meike adaptor for use with EOS lenses.
I personally think its a bargain !!

Focus will be done by a combination of hardware (motors) and software (focus algorithm). Sure the firmware update can't change the motor, but it can push out an improved algorithm to speed things up.

Better photographers turn that little button that says AF/MF to MF.

canon people **** up the maths then cause the one i tested was slower to focus than my x100 fuji and that one is crap.

Firmware update 2.0.2. went a long way to address the earlier issues.........but some say it came along too late to save the model. It's a bargain now though at £179 inc lens & flash

Available in all 5 of my nearest shops ... well that's a first, normally things like this are sold out.

Shame I already have one. have to say though, for the money it's a fantastic little camera ... I use one for when I don't want to take out my 7D and L lenses (as long as it's not sunny, hate not having a VF on days like that). Built like a miniature tank, get a 22mm f2 lens for it and you have a cracking little street camera (the 11-22mm is excellent as well). Has the 60D sensor in it so it outputs great photos, AF a little slow but after the firmware update it's very usable just the same.

What's the advantage of using fixed 22mm over 18-55mm?
#35
If you are wanting to video something thats on your desk ... like for when you do video reviews of mobiles ... which lens is best for this?

Will this camera be good and suitable to shoot video reviews of products for youtube? I was looking at the 600 or 650D but they are a lot more expensive...

22mm prime is fixed so you zoom with your feet, the 18-55 zooms over the distance.

This is a no brainer for cost, was £770 on release........the 18-55 will suit for video work too.

Focus isn't that bad at all, just as quick as any Sony NEX or Fuji X.

That much I know :)

Wasn't asking about focusing or difference between fixed and variable lenses.
@Sockpuppetuk and @oddballjamie mentioned 22mm that's why I asked. Is it because of it being (moderate) wide-angle lens, better photos quality or what?

One of the better mirrorless cameras I've used, the 22mm (FF 35mm equiv.) is one of the best lenses I've owned on any system.
The 11-22mm is an excellent wide lens too, and relatively cheap.

AF is perfectly usable, not DSLR quick but just as fast as any NEX or my Fuji X-M1.

£179? Bargain.
