Canon's mirrorless camera EOS M
Canon’s much-rumored mirrorless, interchangeable lens camera competitor, the EOS M, is finally a reality.
The EOS M is Canon’s response to the growing market of compact, yet full-featured mirrorless cameras which includes Nikon’s J1 and V1, Sony’s NEX range, Samsung’s NX series, and Olympus and Panasonic’s Micro Four Thirds system cameras.
It features an 18.0 MP APS-C CMOS (APS-C) Sensor, Full HD movie capture with Focus Tracking, manual exposure control, a 3.0” touchscreen LCD, touch autofocus and multi-touch operation, plus is compatible with existing Canon EF and EF-S lenses.
The EOS M Digital Camera will hit stores in Japan and cost about 79,000 yen. It will go on sale in the U.S. in October priced from $799.99 with the new EF-M 22mm f/2 STM kit lens.
