CANON EOS M CAMERA

Now this is the camera for me, at last Canon can hear my thoughts.

Canon’s EOS M is finally upon us. $800 will get you the company’s first mirrorless, interchangeable-lens camera, with a 22mm prime and a sales pitch centered firmly around its video capabilities. It certainly took them long enough when all the other manufacturers were doing it, Canon finally stepped up to the plate and they are pulling out all the stops. Blurring the lines between a DSLR and a point-and-shoot, it has a lot of the Capabilities of the DSLR packed into a compact size yet you can use your DSLR lenses on it. And the specifications on this camera are nothing to joke about, Canon have done a good job and I want to add this camera to my list.

Here’s Canon EOS M feature highlights:

  • 18 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor
  • DIGIC 5 Image Processor
  • Full HD Movie with Focus Tracking
  • 3.0-inch touch screen with LCD
  • Touch AF and Multi-touch Operation
  • Hybrid CMOS Auto-focus for photo & video
  • ISO 100–12800, expandable to 25600
  • Compatible with Canon EF and EF-S lenses (Optional EOS M mount adapter is required)
  • Compatible with SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards, including new Ultra High Speed (UHS-I) cards
  • Includes Canon EF-M 22mm F2 STM

Full manual exposure control when shooting video, and an available mount adapter so you can use nearly any EF or EF-S lenses. The exact type of camera that I would like, I don’t want to lug around the DSLR around my neck all the time but sometimes I want a camera that I can uses all the lenses that I have, and with all the features this mirrorless beast is very rich in video controls and options. The release date is set for October.
