Even with firmware 2.02, this camera has a fatal flaw.

Mark Fellows "Gadget Guy", Amazon

  • Summary: The camera came updated with firmware 2.02. Even with the new update, the camera still has major issues with auto focus. It is not a lack of speed I am concerned about, it is inaccuracy.

  • Excerpt: Nothing really stands out as beeing good about this camera other than its compact size. The AF is very slow, the physical controls are missing crucial things like a mode dial and it has no built-in flash. What makes this camera interesting is the EF-M lenses.

  • Summary: Prior I have this camera, I use sony RX100. Wish someway it was a blessing and cursing a switch to EOS M. Pros: • Compact size • Great screen and one of the best in the market (High resolution and full function of touch screen) • Touch Focus • Has Stereo mic and external audio jack for better audio...

Not compatible with 42mm lens at all.

R-2, Amazon
28 November 2014
  • Summary: Apparently the lens for EOS-M are not compatible with DSLR and other lens. The problem is not about the different thread mount which can be addressed by using an adapter. The real problem is that regular camera lens are designed for using with the film of 1"x1,5" while the sensor of EOS-M seems to...

Aging line

T. S., Newegg
10 August 2014
  • Summary: Small, cheap, good quality in the right light, and adaptable to lots of different lenses -- most only can be used in a manual focusing mode but still....
  • Pros: I bought this camera more than a year ago -- same price and came with same zoom lens. I like it for what it is, but -slow, sometimes inaccurate AF, lots of pixels, but small sensor so the pixels are small and consequently noisy; can't have high resolution and low noise on a small sensor, just two...
  • Cons: Small sensor means noise in images and poor to bad low light performance. This is an old model, there is now an EOS-M2 (or II), that adds a few features but is not sold in the US. It was double the price, but this one is grey market ... sooo..... I paid the same price over a year ago and I think ...

Very light and convenient, but with drawbacks

Flicker, Amazon
21 June 2014
  • Summary: It appears to work pretty well, but the lens doesn't have manual controls for F stop. Ergo the depth of focus is limited. The touch screen focus capability is sweet though. I keep getting messed up because I'm used to putting my eye to the viewfinder which this camera of-course doesn't have.

Questionable

  • Summary: I ordered a brand new item, and it looked new, but the box was not taped and there were things missing that made me think this wasn't a new item. Not really impressed.

Great for Video

David Clark, Amazon

  • Summary: I found this camera to be great for video, but that is about it. I bought this camera as a backup video camera and I am pleased with the results. I would advise against purchasing this camera if you plan to use it to take still images.

As a stills camera... it's an absolutely phenomenal video camera.

I. Lozada, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this camera in December to use as a backup video body for my work, but also to use as a video body that if it got destroyed while using to film a Typhoon Haiyan relief trip, well, it wouldn't be the end of the world. With the available EF adapter, I was able to use all my normal EF lenses.
