Nothing really stands out as beeing good about this camera other than its compact size. The AF is very slow, the physical controls are missing crucial things like a mode dial and it has no built-in flash. What makes this camera interesting is the EF-M lenses. Canon has made some surprisingly good affordable lenses for the EF-M mount. The 22mm F2 prime and the 11-22mm F4-5.6 wide-angle zoom are both spectacular compared to most other lenses in the same price-range. They compare to lenses ...

I love it for it is, a small camera that is capable of the same image quality as I got from my 18MP DSLR. Yes, there are the well-known short comings, but for the most part I could work around it. Overall I was so happy with the M-system that I even decided to sell my DSLR! Of course, changes in my life, in my shooting behaviour and a shift of subjects made this decision much easier! There was no longer the need for me to use a semi-pro DSLR model which would outnumber my skills! When I ...

WEll, let me start with the obvious bad issues: 1. Slow AF performance, yes is slow than regular EOS cameras, even the single AF sensor 620 from 1988, with the firmware update the AF performance were improved, but still slow, personally not a big eal, I use an EOS 1Ds Mark III with an incredible fast AF speed, in contrast the EOS M is far behind, but I use on good day light conditions, for landscape and are fast enough 2. Short battery life expectancy, this issue, present on most of the ...

I have had this for a few months and have found it great, i got it for a bargin price new. I have two Canon DSLRs (20D,30D) already and went for this as a more portable and as a 3rd backup/light carry for my DSLRs. I feel it has great image quality and great features in a smaller package. I have found it slow but its good enough for my purpose. I love the live view and the touch screen and the diffent format options. Its so simple to use and i use it more than my DSLRs now. The movie mode is ...

Actually I have EOS M2, but since this camera is not listed by DPreview (it was released on certain, mostly Asian markets) this is the only place I could squeeze my review in ... it is almost the same camera as original M but with Wi-Fi built in and improvements to AF speed (or so is Canon claiming). Basically at close out prices (Oct 2014) this camera makes some sense if someone is looking for a pocketable and inexpensive camera. It is well built and small enough with 22mm pancake lens to ...

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 ...
