mirrorless cameras usually don't have flash in-built.
canon sells these as a package.
u cannot sell it without the external flash Speedlite-90x.

Dear all.The Canon EOS M comes with different packages with flash without flash ,body only ,with 22mm lens ,with 18-55mm lens .The package offered by Flipkart is for without flash and they have not mentioned it anywhere also .The package with flash was costing 20999 and they have mentioned it with 90EX flash in there listing .As nobody is aware of that they start complaining that flash is not included . The box with flash shows the flash pic too and flash sr number in the box .The box without flash shows no pic of flash and there is serial number for body and lens only in the package details .So please don't blame Flipkart .However, Flipkart should clearly indicate that this model is without flash to avoid any confusion . Update: I would like to add few more information better go to Canon EOS 1200D Combo offer with 18-55 and 55-200 lens .The main advantages of 1200D over EOS-M are 1. You will get built in flash in 1200D .However, in case of Canon EOS-M the flash does not come with this package and if you purchase it separately it will cost 9000 in India and min 4000 in US 2. You will get view finder in 1200D which is unavailable in EOS-M ,Viewfinder gives you more concentration on composition .Canon EOS-M lacks the same and in sunny bright day it is difficult to see the LCD . 3. You will get variety of Canon EOS-EF Mount lenses ,the same you can attach to EOS-M but you need an Adapter for that, which again costs Rs 4000/- extra . 4.The combo package of Canon EOS 1200D costs Rs 22000/- to 25000/- at various sites with 55-200 lens .However if you buy 55-200 lens for Canon EOS-M it will costs Rs 25000/- extra and is also not available in India right now . So Canon EOS-M may be looking cheap but you may see as per above points that it is a costly affair indirectly .The AF speed is also not that fast compared to others and The resale price is also not good and there are few lenses for EOS-M directly and they are too costly. Hope it helps
No Doubt it's quality ! But where is commitment from Canon ?

Being a Canon DSLR user since 2007 I like to join this Mirrorless trend and I found there is nothing better to rely on this cute little Canon beast. But I can't, why reason below as a intermediate user point of view:-
1.Canon need to show much more commitment in this late entered mirror less segment to attract potential buyer. Still now what we got one zoom lens 18-55mm f/3.5-f/5.6 and one f/2.0 22mm prime & one EF-M adopter for all EF & EF-S compatibility.
But here in India, where is the 22mm prime and there is no sign of EF-M adopter by any official channel. Potential buyer like to see some effort from the manufacturer side before invest in the new system like EOS-M (Only 2 lenses and 1 Adopter,what is the point of interchangeable stuff if those are not available ).
2.Due to Hybrid AF system this EOS-M is pretty hard of shooting any subject other than stationary.
3. No Electronic View Finder = Focusing or composing the shot pretty hard when the light condition not favourable to look at the LCD display.
Some folks are complaining about small body, Odd looking when mount with huge lens but I like to remind isn't portability is the key point of opting a mirrorless ?
Anyhow due to mentioned shortcomings I like to rate this product 2 out of 5.
(No disrespect to anyone, This is my personal observation about this product who is looking for lightweight product to replace his age old DSLR body which can take existing EF & EF-S lenses out of the box or help with an adapter which is available easily)
Canon eos-M is a Good deal at this price

This mirrorless dslr got so much negative reviews because of its slow Auto focus, no viewfinder and no inbuilt flash.
But it auto focus is not as much slow as exagerated by people.
I have take photos at street light and its excellent. You dont need any flash.
View finder-For me its not such a negative point.
So, for those who are opting a Step ahead of Point and shoots.. This is very good choice at this rate and size.(Just look at cost of other mirrorles dslrs)
Also note this point.. Although DSLRs are better choice.., they are soo bulky and you wont take them out many times to take photos. You will hate them for their size and weight.

I got this camera (plus kit consisting of 18-55mm lens, Speedlite flash, 4 GB card and DSLR bag) for 21k from Flipkart with 1 day delivery.
Camera came installed with firmware v 2.02 (which addressed the slow AF issues). This is a great alternative to DSLRs with the following advantages
1. Very compact and lightweight
2. Uses same processor (Digic 5) and software/ Touch screen menu, 18 MP as a modern Canon DSLR
3. 18-55 mm kit lens is image stabilized and takes great photos (including great low light performance)
4. With a lens adapter (original Canon or aftermarket cheaper ones), one can use all EF/ EF-S lenses from Canon family and even older non-AF ones from Canon/ other make lenses (via appropriate mount) - i.e., large selection of lenses at an affordable price
5. Video shooting is excellent and sound is outstanding (with 3.5 mm microphone input)
6. Given its form factor, camera size/ appeal is woman friendly. One can encourage wife/ GFs to pursue DSLR grade photography
For the price paid, I would not list any disadvantages.

Being a user of the previous canon 5d mark II and III, 7d and 60d, I have to say that this little gadget redefines Canon's product line.
The touch screen is superb. I have used touch screen cameras from other companies and this EOS M is nothing short of a surprise.
Compared to Sony Nex 5, which I bought a few years ago, the EOS M has a much better feel to it with a hint of metallic shine.
The focusing is not as fast as the BIG DSLR. However, I can live with it for landscape and more static shots.
The only thing I would have hoped is that it contains a no shutter sound shooting mode, which would make it a lot more versatile.
Overall, if you get it on sale, you get yourself quite a nice little present!
I highly recommend it!

As it is a compact piece is is very light than any dslr. It is easy to carry anywhere. The great thing is you can have a dslr feel.
nice but a bit overpriced

this is one beast in world of mirrorless... it has some amazing hardware like very big senor and super fast processor for image processing and really portable body....cool thing is it is compatible with almost all eos lenses of canon.............. only down side is its pricing which i think is a bit high in comparison to nikon j1 ... but if your canon fan its your baby :)
