| p.1 #1 · Canon EOS M mirrorless expected to ship in October! |
Canon EOS M makes a grand entrance into the mirrorless interchangeable lens market.
It shares the same core technology as it's rebel sister, the T4i DSLR, with an 18-megapixel APS-C sensor, DIGIC 5 image processor, touch screen LCD and new hybrid auto-focus technology.
This little video powerhouse offers full HD mode with continuous focus and can shoot 1080p video at 24, 25, or 30 frames per second.
This seems to be a great entry level camera but the question is:
How many SLR photographers will spend a thousand dollars to use the new mirrorless + adapter with their current Canon gear?
I personally would welcome a full frame version of this camera to use with my TS-E lenses for landscape photography.
Pre-orders are available at B&H Photo with the EF-M 22mm f/2 STM lens for $799.99.
Here are the specs:
- 18.0 MP CMOS (APS-C) Sensor
- DIGIC 5 Image Processor
- Full HD Movie with Focus Tracking
- 3.0" Touch Screen LCD with 1040K-dots
- Touch AF and Multi-touch Operation
- Hybrid CMOS Auto-focus for Photo & Video
- Compatible with Canon EF and EF-S Lenses
- ISO 100-12800, Expandable to 25600 (H)
- Canon's First Mirrorless Camera
- Includes Canon EF-M 22mm F/2 STM Lens
All current Canon EF and EF-S SLR lenses will work with the Canon EOS M by using the EF-M Lens Adapter Kit. ($199)
