A recent trip to Glastonbury left us wondering just which camera would be best to take to a festival. We wanted something that would take quality snaps, have some flexibility in terms of zooming and lenses and not be so big that it gets annoying carrying...

Canon's first compact system camera is deliberately aimed at the ‘cross over' user, but it's still packed solid with D-SLR features. Whatever Canon's reasons for waiting so long to launch its mirrorless interchangeable lens camera system, there's...

As people contemplate between bulk, user experience, and imaging quality, price is a major factor that can swing people's vote. Mirrorless cameras these days cost you a bomb, and that is where the EOS M comes as a breath of fresh air. A highly...

Canon's sole MILC camera is the EOS M, which shares the same sensor and processor as its DSLR cousin, the 650D, though it's much smaller. Canon has sought to retain some of the familiar interface designs seen in its DSLR range, with a similar menu design...

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 Canon joined the mirrorless camera party very late in 2012 with its first and so far only compact...

Buying Guide Best DSLR: top cameras by price and brand Broadly speaking, compact system cameras (CSCs) can be divided into two groups; those that are designed to look and feel like mini-SLRs, and those that have a more rectangular appearance and look...

After a long wait, considering that Canon announced their first CSC camera a long time ago, we've received Canon EOS M for testing. Considering that all of the big names in the world of camera production presented their own visions of CSC cameras, Canon...

Canon's first mirror-less interchangeable lens camera has an EOS pedigree and looks to be a fine product. It can accept EF and EF-S lenses via an adapter, but there are new, more compact lenses available for it, too, including a 22mm pancake. It will go...

While it provides one of the best touch-screen experiences in its class and the compact body is quite comfortable to shoot with, the Canon EOS M's disappointing performance and blah feature set make it less attractive than...

Considering this is Canon's first CSC, the EOS M is an impressive camera in many ways, and not least in terms of image quality thanks to sharing its sensor and processor with the EOS 650D. The camera body is extremely compact, which is good if you want...

The EOS M is Canon’s first foray into the mirrorless camera market that is currently dominated by Micro Four Thirds models from Olympus and Panasonic, along with Sony’s NEX lineup. The EOS M was welcomed with a collective “It’s about time…” from most...

No. Canons effort on the EOS M buttresses those frustrated users who believe that their beloved brand is focusing more on protecting their markets than they are on innovating. The M is just too safe and too boring in a time when other companies are...
