Canon EOS M3

 

The Canon EOS M3 is the third stab at a CSC from what is still probably the biggest name in cameras. It follows the 2012 Canon EOS M, a camera that did so badly Canon didn't even bother to release the follow-up M2 in the UK, Europe or US.

Good handling and control ; Well implemented touchscreen ; Decent images

Relatively slow all-round performance ; Disappointing dynamic range ; Chunky kit lens ; Limited lens selection

Hands-on: Canon EOS M3 review: Still behind the mirrorless market curve - Pocket-lint

 

Canon makes great DSLR cameras, there's no doubt about that. But in 2012 when the company dipped into the mirrorless market with the EOS M, it was unusually

Canon EOS M3 review

 

Has Canon finally got serious about compact system cameras? We give the EOS M3 a full test to find out

24Mp APS-C format sensor ; Excellent interface ; Plenty of control

Limited EF-M mount lens range ; Frustrating autofocus system ; No viewfinder built-in

While the M3 is very capable, the 18-55mm kit limits detail resolution significantly and the autofocus system has a habit of focusing on the background rather than the subject.

Canon EOS M3 review: This mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera sadly still pales in comparison

 

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

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

 

Not perfect, but superb controls and outstanding image quality make the Canon EOS M3 a serious contender

The small range of compatible lenses is a concern, though, and so is the pedestrian performance and short battery life. These issues keep it from receiving five stars. However, you'd have to spend £200 more on the Fujifilm X-E2 to get something...

Canon EOS M3 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Canon EOS M3 is a compact system camera, and Canon's third attempt at a mirrorless design. It boasts a 24Mp sensor and, with improved specifications, this latest model is aimed squarely at keen photographers. Has Canon scrubbed away the autofocus...

Canon EOS M3 CSC Review

 

Reviewed: Canon's new EOS M3, the mirrorless compact system camera with a new 24 megapixel APS-C sensor.

Much improved focus speeds ; Good image quality ; Excellent colour saturation ; Built in Wi-Fi and NFC ; Good noise performance ; Microphone socket ; Good handgrip ; Built in HDR ; Dual-axis electronic level

Limited EOS-M lenses with 4 native lenses - an adapter for EF lenses is available ; 4.2fps continous shooting isn't particularly quick compared to the competition ; Short battery life ; Panoramic mode not available ; Small raw buffer

There is now, more than ever, an enormous amount of competition and choice available in the mirrorless compact system camera market, with each manufacturer trying to gain as much market share as possible in this growing area. Because of this the...

Canon EOS M3

 

With a spec sheet big on megapixels and small in size, can Canon's latest EOS M3 catch the CSC competition?

Because the ageing EOS M is nearly three years old, the arrival of the EOS M3 needed to deliver a knockout blow. While the handling and ease of use are certainly there, the autofocus, while much improved, could still be faster. Overall image quality is...

Canon EOS M3 mirrorless camera

 

A highly capable mirrorless camera that can work with regular DSLR lenses (via an adapter)

Picture clarity and colours ; Useful live view and great screen ; Intuitive controls and fun to use

Handgrip is shallow ; Dials hard to move

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