Canon EOS M Review

 

If you really want a compact shooter that will work with your existing Canon lenses, the EOS M delivers with caveats. For everyone else, wait if you can.

Solid construction ; The use of Canon’s full line of lenses (via optional adapter) ; DSLR sensor ; Great image and video quality

Slow autofocusing system ; Time-consuming settings adjustments ; No viewfinder

In technology, we expect first-of-its-kind products to encounter teething issues. But in the case of the EOS M, Canon should not have had to reinvent the wheel. Perhaps the company is still unsure and testing the waters with this first try, or, as some...

Canon EOS M review: was Canon's first mirrorless ILC worth the four-year wait?

 

More InfoLeaked EOS M photo looks like Canon's long-awaited mirrorless cameraCanon unveils EOS M mirrorless: 18 MP APS-C, EF compatibility, $800

Excellent image quality ; Attractive, sturdy build ; EF and EF-S lens compatibility

Sluggish focusing performance ; No mode dial and sub-par UI ; Below-average battery life

Canon's first mirrorless camera offers top-notch image quality, but it fails to meet our expectations in terms of focusing and usability.

Canon EOS M disappoints

 

Despite nice photo quality, the EOS M delivers too little too late compared with competing cameras that have had generations to work out the kinks.

With a very nice touch screen, a well-designed body, and excellent photo quality, the ; has some attractive qualities.

Seriously poor autofocus performance and battery life detract from the overall package.

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.

It's got a compact, well-built and well-designed metal body, and a responsive touch screen with a streamlined interface, and it delivers the photo quality you expect from this class of camera. But the feature set is pretty blah, and it suffers from...

Canon EOS M

 

The EOS M, Canon's first compact interchangeable lens camera, feels polished on the outside, but its poor performance makes it clear that you're looking at a first-generation product.

Sharp images. Good high ISO performance. Compact body. Responsive touch screen. 1080p video recording.

Very slow to start. Lethargic autofocus. No flash. No EVF option. Limited native lens library.

The Canon EOS M delivers arguably the best image quality per cubic inch (mm) - or per ounce (gram) of any Canon digital camera produced as of review time. When small and light are important specifications, and when image quality cannot be sacrificed,...

Canon EOS M Review

 

This Canon EOS M Review goes over the features and properties of Canon's first product in the Compact Camera System category. It shows what most users can do in a real-world situation.

I hope that this review gave you a good idea of how it is to use the Canon EOS M in the real-world. Instead of trying to review *everything* I tried to narrow things to the most useful/popular aspects of the camera. If you would like to ask a question,...

Canon EOS M Review

 

The Canon EOS M is the very first compact system camera from Canon, who are the last major manufacturer to release a mirrorless model. The EOS M has an 18-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, new EOS M lens mount, a touch-screen interface, Full 1080p HD Movie...

Canon’s debut take on a compact system camera in the EOS M was always going to generate big interest, even if its own manufacturer’s introduction of it has seemed oddly muted and lacking in fanfare to date. Is the reason obvious because Canon simply...
