Canon EOS M: Features and Capabilities

The Canon EOS M is one of the latest mirror-less Canon outputs on the market and is equipped with a compact and rugged design with few frills but plenty of substance: available in four different colors (black, white, gray and red.

The camera has some rather small size (about 10.86 x 6.65 x 3.23 cm) but a noteworthy weight (about 298 grams with battery and memory card), which probably contributes to the feeling of solidity that is returned when you grab for the first time. On the back of the camera body is a beautiful place LCD touch screen of 3 inches (about 7.7 cm) 3:2 Clear View II with a resolution of no less than 1,040,000 points.

The highlight is definitely the Canon EOS M beautiful CMOS sensor APS-C (22,3 x14, 9 mm) 18 MP with the same size of the sensors used in the EOS digital SLR image quality and offers a very high level, thanks to the 14-bit DIGIC 5 processor that ensures accurate color gradations and high color depth.

The quality offered by this camera mirror-less is closely comparable to the quality of a digital SLR, but with much smaller and compact that allow for better transport and above all more manageable. Like most of Canon cameras, also this Canon EOS M (which we define high end) is equipped with many automatic modes also thanks to the presence of the Smart Auto Scene technology through which the device analyzes the subject evaluating color, brightness, motion and the presence and automatically selects the most appropriate shooting settings, offering the user the best shots.

Being a high-level camera, the Canon EOS M also offers Manual mode among which the Manual exposure mode, the manual AF point selection and manual focus (AF automatic, manual or AF MF MF after one shot) . Besides the above mentioned features, the camera is equipped with ISO 100-12800 (photo) expandable to ISO 25,600 and ISO 6400 (video), Hybrid CMOS AF (auto focus continuous), Full HD 1080p video mode Snapshot and stereo audio, Creative Filter, option Basic Zone and easy creation of movies.

The camera is highly customizable and allows you to create great images with beautiful background blur evenly and easily, thanks to the presence of the inner guide that allows the acquisition of new skills to every user. One of the highlights of the camera surely lies in the extremely simple controls and quick to use that will allow the end user to achieve what they want in a very short time and with minimal effort, all this thanks to the fantastic touch screen LCD Clear View II 3 inches (resolution of 1040000 points) that provides intuitive control of the menu functions and the ability to focus and shoot with a single tap.

Conclusion

The new Canon EOS M is a mirror-less camera with the latest generation of high-level features and is equipped with the fantastic 14-bit DIGIC 5 processor that ensures precise color gradation and out of the ordinary. Among the many strengths of the camera, more than the beautiful LCD touch screen (really amazing) we will find the senssibilità high ISO and sensor APS-C CMOS 18MP.

Among the very few weaknesses we find instead the price (unfortunately slightly high), and the colors do not exactly cutting edge (my favorite is still the classic black, fully in line with the world Reflex). The Canon EOS M is in any case a camera equipped with many high-level features of the latest generation and that will attract both novice users and expert users (thanks to the automatic mode which has one) of course provided that they are willing to spend.
