Canon EOS M3 review

 

Canon's M3 can't outperform its mirrorless peers, but the price is right.

Rebel in your pocket: Canon EOS M3 Review

 

Canon's EOS M3 is very much like a Rebel T6s stuffed into a compact body that resembles the company's PowerShot models. Can the company's most ambitious mirrorless camera to date compete with some excellent midrange consumer mirrorless cameras? Read...

While most camera manufacturers have been making a lot of noise about their mirrorless offerings, Canon has been quietly selling a couple models of their own. Their most ambitious model as so far is the EOS M3, which brings many of the features of the...

Canon EOS M3

 

Canon takes a big step forward in the mirrorless camera market with the EOS M3, but it still lags behind the competition.

Sturdy, compact body. Tilting rear touch display. In-body flash. Wi-Fi with NFC. Mounts Canon SLR lenses via adapter.

EVF is an expensive add-on. Slow autofocus. Limited shooting buffer. Cramped controls.

Conclusions The Canon EOS M3 is a better camera than Canon's first mirrorless model, the EOS M. But the company, which has long been one of the leaders in focus performance in the SLR world, still has a lot of work to do here. The M3 suffers from slow...

Canon EOS M3 review

 

Canon's M3, the company's most recent foray into the growing mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera (ILC) market, is its most promising. Canon's first entry, 2012's EOS M , had widely-reported autofocus issues that turned off many customers before a...

A very well-designed mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera, the EOS M3 offers high-quality photos.

It's slow, with a relatively limited feature set for the price.

The Canon EOS M3 offers dSLR-quality photos and a nice design, but its feature set is average, performance is sluggish and its price relatively high, at least in the US and the UK.

Canon EOS M3 Review

 

The EOS M3 is the third compact system camera from Canon. The EOS M3 has an 24.2 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, DIGIC 6 processor, a touch-screen interface, Hybrid CMOS AF III and 49-point AF System, Full 1080p HD Movie mode, ISO 100-12800, a 3-inch...

The new Canon EOS M3 is a much more serious compact system camera than the original EOS M that we reviewed back in 2012. It offers a raft of improvements clearly aimed at making it more enthusiast-friendly, along with a big reduction in the launch...
