Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens review with samples

Here’s a new superzoom kit lens which is only for Canon’s mirrorless EOS M system cameras. With its quite decent zoom range of 18-150mm, can its optics keep up – especially when used on a 24 megapixel camera?

Remember, as an EF-M lens, this lens will NOT work with digital SLR cameras.

I will be reviewing more of Canon’s mirrorless EOS M lenses in the near future!

All pictures and footage shot by me on a Canon EOS M3 camera.

The Canon 5157B002 includes the EOS Rebel T3 Digital SLR Camera and the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS type II Lens.

Enhanced metering with a 63-zone, Dual-layer metering system for accurate metering between exposures.

Here is just one of the reviews customers have left.

A great little DSLR worth your consideration.

You will probably read a lot of reviews of this camera that are rather dismissive of its look, feel, and feature set. And while I cannot defend the lack of a rubberized handgrip… spend any amount of time with this camera and you will find it simple, yet competent little DSLR which gets the most important thing right.The camera has a glossy plastic finish…

60FPS BOSS CAMCORDER | Canon Vixia HF R500 Review

The Canon Vixia HF R500 has been a reliable camcorder for me for pretty much all of 2015. It records in 60FPS up to 35 mb/s, and has up to 32x optical zoom with optical image stabilization.


Side note: This is the last review I have recorded from my old bedroom and setup. Ironically it’s better lit/looking than any video since. Sad times.

01:41 – Hardware overview
01:44 – Why a camcorder vs. a smartphone?
02:15 – Ports

02:51 – Had external mic input
03:20 – Internal storage
03:27 – Differences vs. HF R800

11:54 – Speed of autofocus
12:00 – “Lock on” focusing
12:21 – Face recognition for focusing
12:51 – Using Wifi features
13:07 – It will not work as a webcam
13:15 – Required mobile apps
14:03 – Initiating Wifi on the camera
14:24 – Using Camera Access+ (remote control app)
15:56 – Transferring video off the camcorder wirelessly
16:59 – Image quality
17:13 – Low light advice / grainy image

First: I recommend not choosing this model and instead opt for the much lower cost HF R800. Canon is charging a 0 price premium for the HF R82. The only things gained for that price difference is the 32 GB of internal storage and the Wifi remote control feature which isn’t all that great.

Canon’s low-end consumer models have not changed much over the last several years, even though they come out with a “new” version each year. In my testing this camera performs and feels the same as the HF R500 / HF R50 models that were introduced several years ago.

The only big change I can see on this camera vs. last year’s model is the removal of AVCHD recording. It now records to MP4 files only which will make it easier to copy videos to a computer but will introduce difficulties when recording for long periods of time with older SD cards. You’ll end up with separate files every 15-30 minutes. The only way to get a continuous recording is to drop it into editing software and stitch the files together. Not good.

Battery life is excellent, with the battery easily providing two hours of recording. Canon started including the larger battery a few years ago and it really is nice to see a useable battery get packed in the box without having to make an additional purchase.

The Wifi remote control with a smartphone works but has a ton of latency (usually about a second and a half back to your phone). That latency can be lowered but the connection from the camera to the phone is not as reliable. It looks like the app really hasn’t changed all that much in the last several years and is really not worth the price premium in my opinion. Canon used to pack in a physical remote control that was more useful.

All in it’s a nice camcorder but no different than the one they introduced several years ago. If you can find older models on clearance there really isn’t much of a difference. And I think the features on 82 vs. the 800 does not warrant the 0 price premium. So if all you need is a camcorder and don’t need the Wifi go for the HF R800 – it’s a great value.
