Canon EOS M to G15

I’m a huge Canon fan and I have been using my Canon G12 for a few years now and it was a decent upgrade from the G11. I got the G1X which was supposed to be the top of the line monster from the G-line but it didn’t hold up to my expectations. The Macro distance was honestly disapointing, its fast but not as fast as the G12 feels so I didn’t use it as much. When I heard about the EOS M I was excited, a Camera from Canon that is the size of the point and shoot but with mountable lenses, and with an adapter you can use the Canon Lenses I have and that is what appealed to me.

After reading a few reviews they said that sometimes it took up to a minute for it to focus depending on the lens. That is a disaster, the first great mirrorless Camera from Canon and everything on paper said they got it right but if it can’t focus quickly then it would be pointless.

Now the G15 is here, and it is the perfect camera for my needs, fast focus, excellent macro, bulky and slightly smaller so its the perfect fit. A faster process so it takes better pictures, the perfect camera for my needs. Then there is the price, the G15 is $500 and the Canon EOS M is $850 and another $200 for the lens adapter to use the DSLR Lens on the Mirrorless camera. I was willing to spend $1000 for a point and shoot but it has to perform at that price, but in this instance the G15 wins on both price and performance.

Shots In London

London is a very inviting city, easy to walk around day and night, and its pretty camera friendly, I would point my camera and nobody would really notice. The weather was really nice to walk around all day and night, even when it was a little cold it was still fun to walk outside. The best part in late November is that they started putting up Christmas decorations in all the major streets and some of them were beautiful.

It gave a really festive feeling throughout London and you could feel people going crazy making sure they get their Christmas shopping done. The mistake I made those days was whenever I would see it being a sunny day I would assume it would be warmer, I would dress lightly and head out only to realize that it is even colder then when it was cloudy the day before. Some many good places to eat while we were there, and the food in London is just amazing, almost every cuisine tastes fantastic there. Luckily I left London before the snow storm came in, but I would still enjoy walking around in London.
