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...

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...

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, Canon's first compact interchangeable lens camera, feels polished on the outside, but its poor performance makes it clear that you're looking at a first-generation...

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...

After using this camera, I had very mixed feelings about what to conclude and what to recommend. Obviously, this is through the prism of my personal usage and experience, but if I had to sum it up, I would say that you should hold off buying this...

There are cheaper competitors available than the Canon EOS M, with quicker focus, a larger choice of lenses, as well as features including Wi-Fi. In addition, the other systems available either feature a built in pop-up flash or smaller external...

It was late on the scene but its arrival still surprised many. After all, it is four years since Panasonic appeared with the first model in this guise. Canon’s first MILC (Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera) or CSC (Compact System Camera)...

In technology, we expect first-of-its-kind products to encounter teething issues. But in the case of the EOS M, Canon should not have had to reinvent the wheel. Perhaps the company is still unsure and testing the waters with this first try, or, as some...

This is as close as you're going to get to a dSLR without actually buying one. The real highlight is the touch interface which makes it easy to fix the settings you need. Performance was good overall, although a little muted on an overcast day, and...

Canon definitely took their time to enter a camera market segment that is becoming increasingly attractive to consumers, but they can take solace in the fact that they mostly delivered a product worthy of the wait. The image quality of the EOS M is...
