Canon EOS M Specs Leaked

Canon EOS M Mirrorless Camera

Specs for the new Canon EOS M mirrorless camera appear to have leaked out a day ahead of launch.  Canon Rumors posted the following specs on the EOS M.

Canon EOS M Mirrorless Camera Specs

  • 18mp APS-C
  • Phase & Contrast AF
  • Video Servo AF
  • 3″ Touchscreen 1.04million pixels
  • ISO 100-12800 (25,600 Expansion)
  • SD Card
  • 1920×1080 Video 30p/25p/24p
  • 1280×720 Video 60p/50p
  • MPEG-4, AVC/H.264
  • Adaptor at launch for EF lenses

Additionally, it looks like Canon will be employing the same 18MP sensor from the Rebel T4i with pixel-level phase detection AF sensors in place as I speculated a few weeks back.  These specs make the Canon EOS M look like a killer mirrorless model.

If all this is legit, it’s going to be fun watching Canon and Sony go toe-to-toe with their mirrorless models over the next couple of years.  It’s also a great thing for consumers to have two camera makers trying to one-up each other.

Does anyone see any glaring omissions that turns you off from this new mirrorless model?

    I remember there are three camera makers trying to one-up each other. Canon and Sony and Samsung NX.

      I was hoping for this and a bit of a retro styling myself. It looks quite impressive and hope it does well. The question is will it be in the range of Sony or closer to Fuji.

    Hallelujah! Canon didn’t cripple their mirrorless entry with a tiny sensor. I hope it’s a 3:2 aspect ratio, unlike the G1-x. I can tell you right now that I’ll be buying the pro version when it becomes available.

    • Tim L says

      Missed the notation that it is the sensor used in the T4i so the aspect ratio will be 3:2. Sweet.

    Wow looks great except for there seems to be no external controls, and some form of view finder optical or digital. hmmmmmmm…. But so far I think it’s better than the ones from Nikon. I am constantly torn between Canon and Nikon (I use both at work). Nailing this category could tip the scales for me.
