Canon EOS M

ImageMirror-less cameras are all the rage an with good reason. They give almost all the benefits of a full D-SLR – namely interchangeable lenses and a properly large sensor, in a smaller and lighter body.

Canon has just unveiled its new mirror-less EOS M. The renowned EOS performance features including outstanding low-light shooting with an ISO range of 100-12800 and 4.3 frame per second high speed burst shooting.

In Creative Auto mode, the EOS M makes creative shooting easy by allowing inexperienced photographers to control certain elements of the image. Existing EOS digital SLR camera users will also welcome the option of a compact camera body to use with their existing EF and EF-S lenses as the situation requires.

The EOS M will be available in four colors – silver, red, black or white – although they may not all be sold in all markets.
