Does anyone know if there is a remote shutter switch for the new canon eos m ?

Unfortunately there is not a wired one. It also appears the infrared options do not allow the camera to shoot continuously.

There is a possibility to drive it via USB since it does support remote capturing.

Can this be done at continuous shot? I don't believe so, but need to test.

Is there a market for the work involved with implementing this? Possibly.

We'll see, got a bunch on my plate right now Unimpressed

Anyone got more to add for this?
I was going to get an EOS M and wire a tongue switch to the IR
remote. Bit of 100mph tape or a neoprene cover and away you
go. Now that I know it wont take images in "Spray and Pray" mode it's not that appealing to me.

Although I was brought up on 35mm and to choose your shots, there are times when continuous mode is warranted.

So, has a fix been developed?

Cheers

Rob

I'll be jumping the EPM1 Olympus this weekend. Has a hard wired port and an adapter from Trunk. So far it looks really promising on the ground; we'll see how she does in the air.

Are you only looking for a canon, or open to other mirror less options?

The M mount is different, but they do have an adapter for about 200 bucks that allows you to put EF and EFS lens onto it. Adds about an inch onto the length of any lens, but will let you add your other Canon glass.

So Gents....any word on the EOS-M bite/remote switch mod or its capability updated from Canon themselves? I also have a slew of Canon glass that i'd like to keep using! Thanks a bunch and in advance!

It can be done, just haven't done it yet and its a pretty pricey mod. ~$300
