Canon EOS M Finally Unveiled
After months of anticipating Canon’s move into the mirrorless interchangeable lens market, just today, the company has finally unveiled its new line of EOS M cameras, which combine all the technology of EOS systems into a compact form factor.
This new Canon EOS M system comes packed with an 18.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor, which is similar to the one found in some of its DSLR cameras. Even with this large sensor, the unit offers a compact form factor of only 108.6 x 66.5 and 32.3 mm, while weighing a mere 262g (body only). Packed with Canon’s latest DIGIC 5 processor, the EOS M also offers ISO sensitivity ranging from ISO 100 all the way to ISO 12800 (expandable to ISO 25600).
Thanks to the 3-inch multi-touch monitor, users will also be able to control the EOS M via touch, while at the same time, the number of buttons and dials has been reduced by 35 percent. Boasting the Hybrid CMOS AF system, the EOS M is also capable of high-speed and high-precision focusing to boot.
“This Canon EOS M offers the flexibility of an interchangeable lens system, is mini in size and most importantly it upholds the EOS heritage as the tagline suggests, ‘it’s interchangeable, it’s mini, it’s and EOS,’” commented Melvyn Ho, President and CEO of Canon Marketing Malaysia.
Currently, there have been no price indication however, the Canon EOS M is said to be available come October 2012.
