Canon EOS M

 

Canon's first CSC combines great image quality and responsive touch-screen control to great effect.

Responsive touchscreen interface ; Image quality ; Premium build quality ; Generous specification

AF and burst shooting could be faster ; Limited number of dedicated lenses

The Canon EOS M is one of the most capable and easy to use CSCs we’ve tested. It’s also a very well specified camera, with plenty to keep both entry-level and more experienced users happy. Image quality is some of the best we’ve yet seen in a CSC and...

Canon EOS M

 

The Canon EOS M heralds the biggest-selling camera manufacturer's entrance into the world of compact system cameras (CSC). With a large sensor just like a DSLR - in the case of the EOS M it's identical to that in the EOS 650D DSLR - but without the...

Image quality is DSLR-matching, EF-S lens adapter accessory available, flash included, fully manual movie mode with great results

Too pricey, autofocus system slower than the competition, battery life limitations, touchscreen has to be used to find certain settings/modes, no electronic viewfinder possible, limited EF-M lens options, flash not built-in

The Canon EOS M delivers on the image quality front, but is otherwise ultimately a let down. It's late to the compact system camera game and fails to offer anything truly special. It's expensive, autofocus is a step behind its competitors, it's not...

Canon's smaller alternative to an SLR

18MP APS-C sensor ; DIGIC 5 processor ; Small size ; High-build quality ; Excellent touchscreen

Canon EOS M review

 

Compact system cameras (CSC) have been around since at least 2009. That's when Panasonic brought out the Lumix DMC-G1 using the new Micro Four Thirds format it developed with Olympus. Canon has now just released its own contribution to this popular new...

This quietly good-looking camera has some great strong points. The Canon EOS M camera will please if you're on the lookout for brilliant image and solid build quality. It’s a sleek design in a small, lightweight body. A built-in flash could be useful...

Canon EOS M review

 

As its first compact system camera, Canon has done a reasonable job with the EOS M. It is a good size for those who are looking for a pocketable DSLR alternative. Similarly, the initial lenses are quite small given the APS-C-sized sensor, and they are...

Canon EOS M review - '‘safe’ starter option for anyone wanting a compact system camera

 

A solidly built starter option for anyone wanting a compact system camera. Whilst it's now longer in the tooth than others here, image quality is superb

Large image sensor, excellent build quallity, access to a plethora of own brand lenses, superb image quality that packs a punch even with 18-55mm kit zoom

No built in flash or Wi-Fi, narrow ‘grip’ to front, lacks eye-level viewfinder, LCD screen is non tilting

Powering up in two seconds, with the image before your lens momentarily adjusting with a half squeeze of the shutter release button, the ‘M’s auto focus response could be quicker. But whether you’re shooting JPEG or combining it with a Raw file, there...
