Canon EOS M – First Impressions

The camera arrived about 2 weeks ago and I recently took it to London for the day to give it a run out. All images are jpegs straight from the camera. They are not great images as I am not a street photographer plus the light was very flat. Will shoot RAW on my next portrait session.

The first thing you notice is the size. Very small and minimalistic with a small grip. For me this isn’t a problem as I have small hands and I wanted a small camera especially when out with the family.

The touch screen is nice and I can navigate around it at speed, so I am not missing all the buttons and dials. However what I don’t like is the settings can be easily changed whilst the camera bounces of my hip. I even managed to enable the touch shutter mode and took some pictures! Would be nice to have button to disable or lock the screen. Need to read the manual .

Now onto the focusing. Yes it’s slow but it wasn’t as bad as I was expecting. For street photography it’s way too slow, but for my normal portrait work it’s fine.

Image quality is what you expect from a Canon camera with the same sensor and processer as the EOS D650.

Overall I am loving the size and weight and so is my back. A lens roadmap from Canon would be nice and a firmware to speed up the focusing.

    Nice review of this little camera! I do love the light weight of these cameras. Walking around with my NEX is nothing like walking around with my heavy DSLR gear.

    for me, the best camera is the canon eos line since they have the best lenses.”
