Camera Review-Canon EOS M

April 03, 2014  •  Leave a Comment
 
I wanted to take a moment to tell you about my newest camera.
 
The Canon EOS M is the perfect little travel camera. It is about the size of a cigarette pack with a lens attached.
 
It has an optional adapter that will let you use lenses from Canons full sized array.
 
It shoots in RAW and has easily manipulated manual controls.
 
The sensor is the same sensor as Canon uses in it's full sized DSLR, the 650D.
 
I will just throw in there that this is an 18mp camera, because those numbers are important to some people.
 
I generally shoot a Nikon D7000. It is difficult to pull out my full size camera in some situations. Also, when traveling, the weight becomes very restrictive over time.
 
The Canon was originally released in 2012, so why is it important to do a review now? Because Canon is releasing a new version that will have wifi, so they have slashed the prices on this little powerhouse of a camera.

http://www.bhphotovideo.com is offering the camera for $400 which is about half off the original price. If you have access to a military PX, they are selling the camera for less than $200.

The camera is more than capable and has the ability to take pictures like this:

I took a similar picture with the Nikon and it turned out like this:

I had to boost the ISO on the Canon to 400 to get the same whiteness as I got with the Nikon at 100. The lenses were completely different and that may have made all the difference.

The downsides to the Canon are that it is difficult to frame the picture without a viewfinder. You can only use the overly sensitive touch screen to view, frame and even take your pictures.

The touchscreen can be set up in many user applied settings. I haven't had the chance to play with these much.

If you are looking for an amazing point and shoot camera with options to go manual and create pro quality photos at a reasonable price, I would highly suggest this camera. Everyone who I have shown my camera to, has rushed out and bought one. They will not last at these prices.
