BH Photo: No tax to NJ, CA
Amazon: now collects NJ tax (7%), CA tax (8.75%)

Here is decent tripod to go with this camera

Review by dpreview [dpreview.com].. ken rockwell is NOT reputable. "ken rockwell is the chuck norris of photography"

New firmware improves auto focus speed [canonwatch.com]
Samples from B&H already appear to have latest firmware loaded, surprisingly. Comparison in performance [canonwatch.com]. Don't expect a miracle with the 22 mm and new camera firmware!

How to check your firmware out of the box:
-Turn on camera
-Rotate the mode dial on the top of the camera to the middle position - between auto (green) mode and video.
-Push INFO button and touch [CA] (creative Auto) and scroll with buttons over to select [AV] (aperture priority mode)
-Push MENU button and go to the wrench with 4 dots
-Bottom of screen lists your firmware version

No built in flash. Speedlite 90ex is about $140 extra. --> set up a slick alert for 270EX II ~$125 way way better than 90EX. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)
No view finder.
Canon EF lens adapter sells for $149 on Amazon
- bulk /grey market versions of same adapter can be found for under $100 on eBay from HK sellers $100
Third Party "Chinese made" Adapters with AF ability sell for 50 dollars on Ebay

Note that the white camera has a glossy finish and is a little more slippery than the black matte version.

Great, great price. With the new firmware, this deal is too good to pass up.

Thanks OP!

From the videos, the firmware uodate makes this a killer camera.
I wouldn't say 'killer camera,' but certainly much more appealing than before..

Quote from yoshapman View Post :
Good camera for a newbie who wants to get more into cameras? Currently have an Elph and want to upgrade to something better. Saw the Pentax $499 deal also, which is a better deal for the pricepoint?
Also, in English please (don't understand the camera jargon), is the $299 or $349 a better deal above?
You should try it in-store. The touch screen might be hard to deal with; unintentionally hitting it and changing settings.

So is this camera the new Pentax K-01?

Still a good deal at this price IMO especially as a backup cam.

Gotta tell you all... If you're looking for portability, I would recommend that you strongly consider the new Canon SL1. Yes, it's over twice as expensive as this, but there are some benefits worth considering...
You get a viewfinder and flash.
You get a great 1.6 crop sensor, allowing for very good low light shooting. (Edit: Sensor is same size with deal camera. SL1 uses Digic 5+ sensor, EOS-M Digic 5. Not sure if much of a difference there in terms of noise performance, so nix this point).
You get the 18-55stm zoom lens, which has received good reviews.
You buy into the EF-S lens system (as opposed to EF-M) which is more versatile and doesn't need adapters.
If you throw the 40mm on the SL1, you now have a very good camera which is not much bigger than this EOS M with its lenses.

Here's a link to the camera (at B&H, but it's sold everywhere): Canon SL1 [bhphotovideo.com]
Here's a link comparing size: Camera Size Comparison [camerasize.com]

Is the SL1 as ultra portable as the EOS M? Not AS ultra portable, but very portable indeed. You can easily throw the SL1 in a messenger and have a very versatile camera whenever you need it. (I do this with my T4i and 40mm and carry my camera with me everywhere!).

Just some alternate considerations. Hope it helps!

The first point is valid and so is the lens selection. We all know about needing an adapter.

But the EOS M also has the APS-C sensor, so just about the same IQ. It also has a 18-55mm lens if you want to go that route.

I would say the 40mm is actually a con as that is 64mm on the SL1 versus 35mm with the 22mm on the EOS M.

Damn that's a great price, I just paid 538 for a 18-55 kit + EF/EFs adaptor and the 90EX combo off ebay. I woulda just got the 18-55 if this was available when I was looking.

The sensors on these two cameras are identical.
The EOS-M is half the width, and with the pancake prime it is practically pocketable. Not everyone walks around with a messenger bag Wink

At half the price, it makes a lot more sense for a lot of people.

As you mentioned, you do get more camera with the SL1, but at the cost of portability and cash.

I got this a couple weeks ago when it was on here for $350.

Being a photojournalist that is used to Canon DSLRs, I was shocked at how awesome this little camera is. And, the recent firmware update makes the focus issue almost a non-issue. The 22mm prime is the way to go. This is one solid camera, and at $300... shit.
