Canon EOS M

Canon has unveiled the highly-anticipated EOS M mirrorless camera.  As expected, the camera comes equipped with an 18MP APS-C CMOS image sensor.  It will be available in black or white (update: the white is apparently no longer available in the US -- update 2: retailers are trying to get official confirmation from Canon regarding available colors other than black) in October for $799.99.

Canon EOS M Key Features

  • 18MP APS-C Sensor
  • DIGIC 5 Image Processor
  • 1080p video (30p/24p)
  • 720p video (60p)
  • ISO 100-6400 (video mode w/ ISO 12800 expanded)
  • ISO 100-12800 (photo mode w/ ISO 25600 expanded)
  • 3-inch touch screen LCD
  • Manual exposure for video
  • Manual audio levels
  • SDXC Support (UHS-I compatible)

The new EF-M lens mount on the camera accepts the two new lenses released with the camera - the EF-M 22mm f/2 STM kit lens and the optional EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens.  Additionally, the EF-EOS M adapter allows you to use either EF or EF-S mount lenses with the camera, which should be a pretty big selling point to existing Canon DSLR users.  The EF-EOS M adapter will be available in October for $199.99.

Alongside the lenses, a new Speedlite 90EX flash will be available in October for $149.99.
