Excerpt: Have owned this camera for less than 2 weeks. I shot more than 300 photos with it and LOVED the IQ and was not bothered by the slow auto focus. HOWEVER, the camera freezes up -- I get a white screen, the shutter won't fire, the menu button doesn't work. This has happened 3 times in less than two weeks; the first 2 times I removed the battery and waited a bit, reinserted the battery and all was OK. 4 hours ago this happened again and the 'normal' fix is no longer working.
Pros: Easy to use, Excellent Image Quality, Quiet, Superior build quality
Summary: The pictures and the descriptions are different. Here is the description Product Description Canon EOS M (White) and EF-M 22mm STM Lens and EF-M18-55mm IS STM Lens But the pictures also show it includes the flash and big lense adaptor. Without the lens and big lens adaptor, it is cheaper to buy the items separately. Too bad, because it looked like a good deal.
Excerpt: Can't see the screen in the day time, you would need a addon hood, which would defete the small size. Do to the small size the it's hard to handel the camera without setting off a few shots.<br />It's going on the auction block.
Excerpt: I have many Canon cameras from point and shoots to a 1D-X (which I love). Getting the EOS-M for my wife was a no-brainer when it came out. The quality of construction and features are every bit as good as I would expect from Canon, but the fatal flaw is focusing - of fast moving objects, or stationary objects in low light. I took the EOS-M to a party and the focusing in low light was so poor I had to give up in the end.
Pros: Bright LCD, Excellent Image Quality, Superior build quality
Cons: Difficult to use, poor focusing in low light, poor focusing of fast moving objects
Excerpt: Great Image, But I would of used it as a Point and Shoot not a Point and Wait 3 seconds and then shoot. If your posing your subjects it shoots great images but I have a 5d mk3 for that I wanted it for random shooting but focus way to slow for that, New firmware and a viewfinder and will be a great must have camera.
Excerpt: I would have liked to use the product as a daily carry along camera, but it takes so long to focus (up to 3 seconds), that the moment is gone long before the camera is ready! I'd waited for Canon to to get into the mirrorless market for a year and pre-ordered in July. What a let down! Canon should not have released this camera until they worked out the auto focus issue.
