No viewfinder and no USB remote control spoil this one for me

Nicholas Wilson, Amazon
28 December 2014
  • Summary: I was disappointed in this camera and returned it after trying it for a few days. My main camera is a Canon EOS 7D, and I wanted the compact EOS version so I could use my pro lenses on it. But I can't get used to not having an optical viewfinder, or at least an electronic peep-through viewfinder.

This camera has some serious flaws

Rob B., Newegg
14 February 2014
  • Summary: The vendor I bought this from through NewEgg is refusing to RMA it. They dont want to me spend more money through them on a more expensive camera. Avoid the seller Photo-4-Now if you value your pocketbook.
  • Pros: Cool little camera. Small, light
  • Cons: Horrible autofocus, it is both slow and inaccurate. There is a bug in the design of the camera that often requires you to detach and reattach the lens before it will release the shutter. This is a known issue but Canon has not issued a fix for it. Also, the EOS suite of software is not fully comp...

Believe the reviews. This camera is one of the worst models that Canon has released.

  • Summary: I would recommend AGAINST this camera. Canon discontinued this camera due to multiple issues. The only thing good about this camera is the physical build. Other than that the images are very noisy and pixelated.

The camera is nice but it was not the color listed on its box and the lens adapter was not present

Inky Reviewer "Inky", Amazon
22 January 2014
  • Summary: I ordered a red version of this camera but the one in the box is a black camera. I've not yet decided whether to go through the pain of returning and replacing it. Also, the photos of this package show the adapter to allow use of the EOS lenses but it was not present in the box and is not shown on...

Not what I was expecting

P Butter, Amazon
16 January 2014
  • Summary: Purchased a Silver Canon EOS M w/ 22mm lens. Both the Canon EOS M and the 22mm lens arrived; however, the box was missing several items (that I didn't expect to be there) because the items were really part of a larger kit that had been gutted.

Poor Vendor

Mike B., Newegg
20 December 2013
  • Summary: A few days after I placed the order, and not receiving a shipment notice, I sent an email asking when it would ship. I received a shipment notice very soon after, and a notice I had been charged. I looked up the tracking number a few days later, and found that it had not shipped.
  • Pros: A camera at a good price
  • Cons: The camera is the wrong color, the camera is not a USA market product, the kit is a broken up larger kit. The camera arrived very late. A tracking number was created, and my credit card billed 6 days before it actually shipped.

Poor Image Quality

BlueBomberTurbo, Amazon
12 December 2013
  • Summary: For a DSLR sensor, this camera falls far short of my expectations. If you've only used Canon DSLRs, I'd highly advise finding some Nikon RAW NEF files, or Sony RAW ARW files to test out. You'll be blown away.

New firmware not fast enough for me

MPC, Amazon
22 August 2013
  • Summary: I am an advanced amateur and primarily use Canon DSLRs. I also shoot Nikon and Panasonic cameras. I wanted to buy the EOS M when it first came out but like everyone else, I was scared away by all the bad reviews on the auto focus speed.

Camera takes fantastic picture - if you can get it to focus in time. Canon doesn't even believe in this system.

W. Kulhanek, Amazon
24 February 2013
  • Summary: I picked this camera up on my last trip to Japan 3 days after it came out there. In Japan they only sold a kitchen sink bundle for the first few weeks which included the body, 22m lens, 18-55m lens, EF Lens adapter and the Speedlite 90EX flash. This camera takes fantastic pictures!
