Canon EOS-M - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Another big gun to Canon’s Arsenal Canon EOS-M Mirrorless 18 - 55 mm lens, Speedlite-90x, Canon’s long awaited debut in the mirror-less compact camera market and there has been quite a fuzz about this camera. The device withholds an 18 Megapixel APS-C sensor and a new EF-M lens mount with a 1.6x field-reduction factor. Canon launched the format with two native M-mount lenses, a 22mm f2 pancake prime (35mm equivalent) and an 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 stabilized zoom (29-88mm equivalent), both of which feature STM stepper motors for quick and quiet movie AF. Meanwhile, the entire Canon EF and EF-S lens catalogue is supported with autofocus and auto exposure using the optional EF-EOS M adapter. Much of the EOS M's technology has already been seen before in Canon EOS 650D which was a hit in itself. Both cameras share the same 18 Megapixel CMOS sensor with hybrid AF which dedicates pixels on the main sensor to perform phase-detect AF during video and live view, backed-up by contrast-based AF for fine-tuning. Both cameras also share essentially the same 3in touchscreen interface, although with a minimum of physical controls on the EOS M, the screen becomes the primary means to operate the camera. The screen of Canon EOS M is not an articulated one, and also there is absence of electronic viewfinder, , nor means to connect one as an accessory. There's no built-in flash either, although the hotshoe is compatible with Speedlites and Canon additionally offers the new Speedlite 90EX mini flash unit which is bundled with the camera in some regions. The EOS-M doesn't include a built-in flash, but in many regions the kit includes the new Canon Speedlite 90EX. The 90EX can be used on any Canon body with a hotshoe (including the DSLR range), but it's clearly been designed to complement the EOS M. When fitted to the camera, the upward sloping body raises the flash head well above the lens mount - a much greater extension than would be possible with a pop-up flash - helping avoid red-eye and shadows from longer lenses.

 

 

Design and Build Quality

Canon EOS M body measures 109mmx 67mm x33mm when talking about exact dimensions and weighs 298g with battery but no lens. So as it stands, the EOS M is only really pocketable when fitted with the unstabilized 22mm f2.0 pancake prime. Fit any zoom on it, native or otherwise, and it'll become considerably bigger. Round the back, you'll find the usual four-way rocker with a rotary dial and direct access to the drive mode, exposure compensation, exposure lock and a re-configurable delete button, the closest you'll get to a Function key on the EOS M. This is surrounded by dedicated buttons for accessing the Menu, Info views and Playback along with one to start and stop video recording, but only when the mode dial is in the movie recording position.

Focus and Face Detection

One can easily note that the physical properties of Canon EOS M resemble a lot to Canon EOS 650D, in the focus department, again Canon EOS M features the same hybrid AF system which employs a combination of contrast-based and phase-detect AF systems, the latter integrated into the sensor itself. As I understand it, the 31 phase-detect AF points are concentrated in an area towards the centre of the frame and are used to perform initial calculations and determine the direction the lens should focus, before leaving the contrast-based system to nail the final focus. Obviously should the subject fall outside of the phase-detect AF points towards the edges of the frame, the system becomes contrast-based only.

Lens and Image Stabilization

Canon EOS M introduces the new EF-M mount for lenses after EF and EF-S lenses. It's designed for the short flange-to-sensor distance of a mirror-less body, although thanks to the APS-C sensor, the field-reduction factor remains the same as EOS DSLRs sharing the same sensor dimensions. As such any lens you mount on the EOS M effectively has its focal length multiplied by 1.6x, and like Canon's DSLRs, any stabilization has to be built-into the lens. Canon chose to launch the EOS M system with just two native EF-M lenses: a 22mm f2 unstabilized pancake prime and an 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 stabilized zoom which means 29-88mm equivalent with a 25cm closest focusing distance. Both lenses sport Canon's latest STM stepper motors for quick and quiet movie AF. In this review we discuss Canon EF-M 18-55mm lens which is a stabilised lens and when it's fitted to the EOS M body stabilisation can be activated from the menu. There are just two options, enabled and disabled, sharing more in common with Canon DSLRs than the Intelligent IS system offered on high end Canon Compacts. The lens does, however, provide Dynamic IS in movie modes which counteracts rolling motion and is designed to smooth out the kind of camera movement that occurs when filming while walking.

Screen and Menus

Canon EOS M employs a 3in Clearview LCD touch-screen which is easily the exclusive means by which you compose and playback shots and in terms of its performance it matches the high standards set by Canon with its compact touch-screen models and more recently Canon EOS 650D. The 1040k dot screen is 3:2 proportioned, so the image fills it completely with information and touch icons overlayed - the only time you ever see black bars is when you switch to a 16:9 movie mode. 

Battery

A big disappointment in this section, Canon EOS M has a new LP-E12 battery that provides enough power for 230 shots. That's a miserly performance which doesn't compare favourably with other cameras in this class. Sony NEX 5N manages to squeeze an impressive 410 shots from its battery and with Olympus PEN E-PL5 you'll get 360. Canon's fixed lens G1X does marginally better with 250 shots, but if you exclusively use its optical viewfinder that increases to a generous 700 shots. 

Video Mode

For those aiming for superb video quality in Full HD, The Canon EOS-M offers 1080p with 25 and 24 fps while 720p with 50 fps and 640p with 25 fps. Convert to NTSC and the 25 and 50 fps modes are replaced for 30 and 60fps. The maximum recording time for a single clip is approx. 29 minutes 59 seconds. There also lays a single file size restriction limit of 4GB which is about 330MB/minute in any HD movie mode, with the 720 option consuming the same as the 1080 due to its higher frame rate. Canon EOS-M continues Canon’s tradition of excellence, quality and simplicity allowing easy manual control for focus and exposure. Movie Servo AF allows uninterrupted autofocus tracking of video subjects while you record your video. This mode can also be switched off by tapping the screen icon. While shooting with Canon’s fresh STM lenses, movie servo AF benefits of the lens’ stepping motor for plane and fair recording without much interjections. Remarkably, the camera stands one step ahead of its rival because of the availability of an external microphone input in addition to a built-in microphone and the ability to manually adjust audio levels.

Sensors

Canon EOS-M digital camera show cases Canon’s brilliant 18.0 Megapixel CMOS: Contemporary Metal Oxide Semiconductor .Impeccable for enlargement and for cropping uncertain details of your pictures. This sensor is to capture images with clarity and vividness. The topnotch sensor features many of the same fresh technology used by qualified Canon cameras to amplify each pixel’s light gathering efficiency and has centre pixels that help in the EOS M digital cameras precise AF performance. Furthermore, the APS-C size sensor creates a successful 1.6x field of view, which means that it can use the existing range of EF and EF-S lenses with the similar field-reduction actor whereas terminating concerns over performance in terms of noise and tonal dynamic.
 

Pros

Canon EOS-M is a decent looking and a very easy to use for beginner photographers’ camera; it also offers similar image quality to the EOS 650D. Another plus is its excellent HD video quality and sound from the internal microphone, which is very good. Over all its light, portable and takes regular Canon EF lenses with adapter.
Cons:

Cons

The camera comes with its share bad. For starters you cannot start video recording in any other dial mode apart from movie. There is also no option for an electronic view-finder and the mega buzz kill is it has no pop up flashes, though there is one included in the box. Lastly, worded to have a slow autofocus at times results in shutter lag which is inconvenient to any user.

this is deceiving
by suryateja P S on 2014-09-13

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.
