What cameras have a mechanical shutter?

Hi, I am a little bit (very) confused regarding shutters. Is it true that most (all?) digital DSLR:s still have mechanical shutters? I have googled for a long time and read the advantages of mechanical shutters, but still I cannot find any information on HOW to tell if a certain camera has a mechanical shutter or not. I understand most cheap point-and-shoot compacts do NOT have mechanical shutters?

I have a Canon EOS M, does it have a mechanical shutter? Is there someway to tell?

Thanks!
