Eos M with Magic Lantern or Eos M3 without?
« on: February 03, 2017, 01:49:59 AM »
Hi all,

I am in front of a dilemma and don't know how to choose. I can either get:
  • Canon Eos M + 22 m-lens + canon ef-m adapter + speedlite + 2 batteries for 250€. This would also have magic lantern with clear advantages.
  • Canon Eos M3 + 22 m-lens + 18-55 m-lens for 400€. Looks like this has larger (24 vs 18 mp) and better sensor as well as some other minor (?) improvements.

What would you guys do? I own a 600D and a 6D and I just love magic lantern there. I guess I would especially miss the video capabilities even though the M3 would be more of a casual camera.
6D - 600D - M3 - M42 lenses.

I shoot commercials. I do not shoot flowers. I still like flowers though.

Went with the M3 in the end. Guess it is finally time to try CHDK!

I bet you the M2 will get ported first!

Why, is there still any possibility of a ML port to the M3?

Do you remember, where and when M2 was released?

is there still any possibility of a ML port to the M3?
The possibility is equal to the possibility of a ML port to Digic6-based Powershot cameras.  :)

Yup, that was my understanding. :(             

Some stuff on CHDK looks to be running fine though.

I was reffering to CHDK features on the M3, as I played a little bit with it today.
