    I’ve started to read your “Canon EOS M…” book, in trying to go from P&S to real photography, but I am completely confused by the focal lengths annotating all the photograph/figures in the book. Some clearly refer to the EOS M lenses by direct reference in the text (22mm, for example). A few use Canon EF lens, per the text, and the f.l. corresponds. Many are outside the range of the 18-55mm EOS M zoom, but I don’t know if they are given in EOS M context or in 35mm-based context which is 1.59 times that of the EOS M. That leaves me alo completely confused as to the ones within the EOS range. Can you clarify for me, whether they are all in EOS M “units”, or, if mixed, how I might tell which is which?
    That would help me tremendously to get the most from your fine book.
    Thank you very much.
    Have a great holiday & new year.

      Jeff-
      I’ve now read more about APS-C format, full-frame EF and 1.6x EF-S lenses for APS-C cameras, both with 44mm flange-focal distance to clear the mirror. I also now understand the shortening of the flange-focal plane distance (back focus) of the EF-M lenses to 18mm enables those lenses, with no mirror to avoid, to be smaller and potentially better. I’ve also finished my first pass through your book (eye opening anot the last pass for sure). I think my question is becomes whether the focal lengths annotating the figured were consistently 1.6x values using either EF-M or EF-S lenses, or, if not, if there is any way to disinguish those taken with full-frame EF lenses? OOr am I still confused?
      Thanks,
      Jeff

        Hi Jeff,

        I need to share a secret related to your question: not all of the photos were shot using the EOS M. Given the time schedule and variety of images, it’s impossible to populate an entire Snapshots to Great Shots book with shots taken from the same camera. If we did that, the book would probably come out almost a year after the camera hits the market, which doesn’t work for publishing schedules.

        (I say that with one caveat: In my Canon G10/G11 and G12 books, every photo is shot using those cameras. But because we were on an extremely tight timeline, we crowd-sourced the images on Flickr, asking owners of those cameras to submit photos for the book. Again, there was no way I could go shoot everything over the short time we had to do the book. We didn’t know if it would work, if anyone would submit, but we were thrilled to get far more high-quality submissions than we needed.)

        All of the photos in the EOS M are mine (that’s a requirement of the series, with the G10/11/12 books being the sole exception due to the circumstances), and were shot with the EOS M, a Nikon D90, and Canon PowerShot G11 and G12 cameras. We make a point of including photos that *could have been shot* using the EOS M. The M has the advantage of being able to use any Canon lens via the adapter, so there are some shots that *were* shot with longer lenses (like the elephants in chapter 2).

        This Flickr set contains all (or most all) shots that were taken with the EOS M that appear in the book (plus some that aren’t in the book).

    Thanks for the clarification, Jeff, and the shots on flickr are beautiful. I had concluded that was the case, since it would be unreasonable to shoot a completely new set for each camera book on that schedule. Doesn’t change that the EOS M is a great book and I’m trying to put its lessons into practice.
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Jeff I have purchased several of your books, the latest being Canon EOS M FSTGS. I have the EOS M5, but purchased this book expecting an M5 supplement would issue. No update on Peachpit, could you advise if updated information for the M5 will become available as mentioned in the introduction to your book. Thanks for the great photography books!
