Canon EOS M Review

Canon-EOS-M-Black

The EOS M is Canon’s first foray into the mirrorless camera market that is currently dominated by Micro Four Thirds models from Olympus and Panasonic, along with Sony’s NEX lineup. The EOS M was welcomed with a collective “It’s about time…” from most of the digital imaging press, who have wondered when Canon would get around to participating in this exploding market segment.

First impressions on Canon’s unveiling of the EOS M were mixed – with some excited to see Canon utilized such a compact form factor while retaining the APS-C sensor – and others (primarily enthusiasts) wondering why there was such a neglect of their market segment by the failure of Canon to include features like a viewfinder.

New Canon EOS-M Model w/ Viewfinder Coming in 2013?

This could be as much of an educated guess as a rumor. Nevertheless, recent rumors point to a new Canon EOS-M model that sports an electronic viewfinder to be unveiled in late 2013.

One of the most lamented non-features of the Canon EOS-M has been the absence of a viewfinder. Enthusiasts were lambasting Canon before the EOS-M ever hit store shelves over the lack of an EVF. While Canon never confirms what’s coming down the line for its camera systems, executives have emphasized that the EOS-M was its first foray into the mirrorless market and that there will me more cameras built for different users.

Additional rumors point to the styling of the camera as similar to the current EOS-M model and that it won’t be taking a retro design like some of the other mirrorless models out there (e.g., Olympus, Fuji, etc.).
