Canon introduces their entry into the mirrorless, inter-changeable lens camera (MILC) market with their press release for the Canon EOS M. With an 18 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, an ISO range of 100-12800 (extended to 25600 in H Mode ), and a 3″ touchscreen, which includes multitouch features like pinch and zoom. The camera will support 1080p video and stereo audio. Using adapters, it will also support existing EF and EF-S series lenses. Strangely it doesn’t have an inbuilt flash, and it appears that it will ship standard with the new hot-shoe Speedlite 90EX in some markets. I must admit I don’t use the inbuilt flash on any of my cameras very much, but it is nice to have it on hand just in case.
The EOS M will launch in October and retail with an EF-22m F/2 STM lens kit for $799.99; a range of other lenses will be available at release.
Looks like an interesting beast !
