Canon EOS M

imaging-resource.com
1 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Late to the mirrorless camera game, the Canon EOS M wasn't a big hit at launch -- primarily due to reports of its glacial autofocus speeds. (Something we discovered here at IR immediately.) Due to what was considered a fatal flaw, the camera was mostly ignored until recently when Canon finally addressed the AF issue with a much-anticipated firmware update.
  • Pros: Solid, compact build and attractive, sleek design that borrows from Canon's PowerShot compacts, 18-megapixel, APS-C sensor delivers great, DSLR-like image quality (similar to the Rebel T4i, T5i and SL1), 3-inch LCD touchscreen monitor is bright and high-resolution, Robust video capabilities, including Full HD (1080p) recording at up to 30fps with stereo audio, Manual Movie mode allows for setting and changing aperture, shutter speed, ISO and more, External mic jack, G...

Canon EOS M disappoints

CNET
3 June 2013
  • Summary: While it provides one of the best touch-screen experiences in its class and the compact body is quite comfortable to shoot with, the Canon EOS M's disappointing performance and blah feature set make it less attractive than competitors.
  • Cons: Seriously poor autofocus performance and battery life detract from the overall package.

  • Conclusion: But Canon has been late to enter the increasingly popular mirrorless camera market, much to everyone’s wonder. However, with the EOS M, one can term their entrance as ‘fashionably late’. The EOS M is a very impressive mirrorless camera that rivals entry level DSLRs in terms of image and video quality, with a slow autofocus being its only major weakness.

Canon EOS M

Camera Labs
1 July 2012
  • Summary: The EOS M is Canon's long-awaited entry into the mirror-less compact system camera market. For its debut, Canon has chosen to target the compact upgrader and those looking for a DSLR replacement that favours ease of use over comprehensive control. With a touch-screen providing the main user interface, few physical controls and a design in tune more with the ELPH and IXUS ranges, rather than the EOS brand, the enthusiast response to the EOS M has been lukewarm.
  • Pros: Small lightweight simple body., 3 inch 1040k bright 3:2 touch-screen., 18 Megapixel APS-C sensor., Compatible with EF & EFS lenses using adapter., 1080p movies at 24, 25 or 30p., External microphone socket.
  • Cons: Only 2 native EF-M lenses at launch., Sluggish AF performance., No electronic viewfinder option., Record button dead in non-movie modes., No built-in stabilisation.

  • Summary: Canon’s EOS M is its first ever CSC and comes with use of 70+ lenses via optional adapter, though it will satisfy consumers more than enthusiasts.

Canon EOS M review

  • Summary: As its first compact system camera, Canon has done a reasonable job with the EOS M. It is a good size for those who are looking for a pocketable DSLR alternative. Similarly, the initial lenses are quite small given the APS-C-sized sensor, and they are of a good quality. More importantly, the image quality of the EOS M matches that of Canon's EOS DSLR cameras. Those who are wary of touchscreens shouldn't worry too much about the unit fitted to the EOS M.
