I've finally decided to write a short review of the EOS M. I've had it for more than 6 months now. I got it reasonably cheap with the 22/2 lens and initially didn't like it a lot. The focus was slow and the images looked uninspiring. That was until I got the hang of it and now I'm very happy with it. I've purchased a second lens for it - the 11-22 STM and an adapter for canon EF lens. It seems that I like it, as I'm still spending money on it. The good: 1. It's extremely well built. It feels ...

My Canon S105 was just not cutting it for me. It didnt have a place for my flashes, it lacked great ISO performance and it didnt have the kind of quality I was looking for. While it could fit into my pocket, it was just not cutting it for me. I saw the Canon EOS M for sale on B&H with lens for $350 so I got that deal. There have been many reviews on the internet about how this isnt that great of a camera. However, I dont believe Canon created the EOS M for professionals to photograph a ...

To put it simply, the EOS M gives you amazing pictures in the palm of your hand. The Canon EOS-M has the same internals as the Canon T4i : a 18Mpx sensor and a Digic 5 processor, while it is barely bigger than a Canon Powershot camera. I'm using it with pancake 22mm, which is sharp wide open and gives creamy lovely bokeh :D I had the camera new for about $300 which is a steal. If you can get it for a good price, I highly recommend it !

Just bought Raynox DCR-250 and tried to 22mm and 18-55mm on my lovely Canon EOS M. Here it is the picture taken from those lenses at closets distance. For better stabilities and precision I'm using macro focus rail. BTW the ruler is in cm. Sadly the result from 18-55mm has a little shadow at all of corners. 22mm without Raynox DCR-250 22mm + Raynox DCR-250 55mm without Raynox DCR-250 55mm + Raynox DCR-250

The Canon EOS M was an interesting camera to research.  There are a number of dated articles that talk about it's poor autofocus, and other quirks like no articulating screen, or screen blackout times.  As I read on, and through the forums here and elsewhere, I came to find that for what I was looking for specifically this little camera would do it, and the image quality would be amazing. In the first 48 hours that I have had this little gem, I have taken a wide variety of snap shots of ...

Shooting full format otherwise, I was looking for the highest quality compact cam for travel. Now with the new firmware update the EF-M 18-55 is actually very ok AF speed wise, and the 22mm is still very usable. Will never be a sports cam, but perfect for street/landscape/macro/portraits while on the run. Truly awesome usability/interface considering the real estate available. Excellent image quality, and IMHO best pancake on the market. Adding the EF-M adapter, I have a perfect travel ...

After upgrading the firmware and reducing the price for 490 for zoom kit (18-55) this camera is the best choice for those who wants to have in camera all options of big SLR and same time small size and low weight. Cameras of 4/3 format with same IQ  twice more expensive. Focus speed still not impressive, but absolutely acceptable (majority of entry-level DSLR have the same). IQ is same like middle-level DSLR. Very unusual and complicated touch screen menu system requires some time to study ...

I laughed this one off when it first launched, but gave in after the price drop and the AF update to make it a bit snappier. I am delightfully surprised at how well this little camera performs. The build quality is excellent, the touch LCD for controls are highly functional, and it's a great size and price. I am also please with the native lenses. I don't have the kit lens, as I don't tend to enjoy kit lenses, but I have the 22mm lens, which is nothing short of stellar, and just got the ...

Received this couple of days ago. Took some shot indoor/outdoor. The indoor shots were taken at night with room lights on. I quite pleased with the result. The AF is not bad. The camera came with FW 1.0.6 and I later upgraded to FW 2.0.2. The new FW was an improvement and the AF was good. The video is excellent. I like the touch focus (well implemented compared to Olympus ones). I do own Oly EPL1, EP3, OMD and Canon 6D. I find the AF performance of the EOS M is better than EPL1 and EP3 (EP3 ...

I've owned this camera for about three months and use it pretty much everyday.  I can hold it in one hand, and it's very portable.  No, you won't be able to put it in your jeans pocket, shirt pocket, or even the top pocket of slacks, but it will easily sit comfortably in a cargo pocket (pants or shorts) and a coat pocket.  Finding a case for it is easy as there are tons it will fit in. The Good:  Image quality can be just as good as anything Canon sells (APS-C, of course).  If you're aiming ...
