Canon is going to Launch a brand new Canon EOS M camera tomorrow along with EF-M 22mm f/2 and EF-M 18-55 IS lens. It will also launch with a new flash, the EX 90 and an EF lens adapter. Seems like a lot is coming from Canon.

EOS M officially announced

Looks like Engaget hit first.

http://www.engadget.co​m …rorless-camera/#continued (external link)

Also Dpreview, now: http://www.dpreview.co​m …m-camera-hands-on-preview (external link)

I know we have lots of rumor/leak threads but I thought I'd start a new one to discuss the actual published details.

Product Specifications and Features:
• EOS Full HD Movie mode with Movie Servo AF for continuous focus tracking of moving subjects also includes:
• Manual exposure control
• Multiple resolution frame rates
• Built-in stereo microphone
• Manual audio level adjustment
• Video Snapshot mode with touch-screen editing
• 18.0-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor
• ISO 100–6400 (expandable to 12800 in H mode) for video recording, ISO 100 – 12800 (expandable to 25600 in H mode) for still image shooting from bright to dim light and high performance Powerful DIGIC 5 Image Processor for exceptional image quality video and photos
• Hybrid CMOS AF delivers fast autofocus speed for video and photos
• Touch Screen 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor II (approximately 1,040,000 dots) with smudge-resistant coating features multi-touch operation allowing photographers to use familiar gestures such as "pinch-to-zoom" and "swiping" to scroll between pictures and Touch AF for an easy and intuitive video capture experience
• Scene Intelligent Auto mode delivers expertly optimized photos and scene detection for amazing results even when shooting at night
• Advanced imaging features like Handheld Night Scene mode, HDR Backlight Control mode, and seven Creative Filters provide added versatility
• Multi-shot Noise Reduction helps preserve precious detail in photos at high ISO speeds
• Compatible with SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards, including new Ultra High Speed (UHS-I) cards
• Compatible with all Canon Speedlite accessories including the new Speedlite 600EX and Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT
• Compatible with Canon's GPS Receiver GP-E2

here's also no electronic viewfinder, though a full-size hot shoe is included with full support for Canon's lineup of Speedlite flashes, including the new $150 90EX strobe and ST-E3-RT Transmitter, and the GP-E2 GPS Receiver. Though the camera lacks certain direct controls, it still supports full manual shooting, even in video mode. There's also a built-in stereo mic with manual level adjustment. In addition to that 22mm kit optic, Canon is offering an EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens for $300, or you can add the $200 EF-EOS M mount adapter to enable use with existing lenses. The $800 EOS M kit is set to ship in October, and will be available in retail stores in black, though Canon's online store will also stock a white model (which will be paired with the same black lens).

Very sweet. What I Concern is about the speed of the af and how to use the af
A little bit pricy, especially the 18-55 lens.. comparing to the ef-s one..


Fly me away.

Yeah I think the $300 kit lens is going to be a hard sell when Sony and Olympus and everyone else include theirs for $100 with camera body.

Finally..

Canon unveils EOS M mirrorless: 18 MP APS-C, EF compatibility, $800 in October with 22mm lens

http://www.engadget.co​m …-eos-m-mirrorless-camera/ (external link)

That's why I go EF only LOL.. no point in getting that thing though. I need the S100's successor vs a mini DSLR.

Would it be a good idea to get rid of my T2i for this you think? I mean, with the sensor size and the EF adapter, one can get the same, if not better images/video from the EOS M than with the T2i. Besides trying to fit a 70-200 onto it and having barely anything to balance the weight with.

I was thinking this would be great addition to my gear set. As in have both bodies, and mix and matching whatever setup you need on the day. Like shooting professionally and need rapid control? Take your slr. Going casual? Take the eosm and lenses. Maybe some small primes. Just another tool for different purposes.

Now I don't know if I'm just looking for use cases now, but after perusing the specs, I really want one in my bag as a sort of dedicated wide prime. It's small enough to kind of just have it and then whip it out for some wide action to complement my short tele I love on my slrs. And if I feel like, I can JUST take the eos m with me.

If I'm on major travel, I might take my slr and have a standard zoom attached. And as usual have a telephoto in my bag - why not have a sensor attached to that telephoto;) hey maybe have it attached to my 100mm macro. I hate hiking around mountains with amazing landscapes seeing a nice bug or flower and having to swap lenses just to take that one image and swap back.

With eos m I don't have to. I have my main lens on my slr and my alternative on my eosm. Or I just bring my eos m and go point and shoot. I see the eosm as a complement to my slr over being a replacement. But it can be a replacement at times too :)
