The EOS M Digital Camera features Canon’s amazing 18.0 Megapixel CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) sensor. Perfect for enlargements or for cropping detailed portions of the composition, the EOS M Digital Camera’s sensor captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range. This first-class sensor features many of the same new technologies used by professional Canon cameras to maximize each pixel’s light-gathering efficiency and has center pixels that aid in the EOS M Digital Camera’s accurate AF performance. This APS-C size sensor creates an effective 1.6x field of view (compared to 35mm format).
Versatile ISO Range for shooting in a wide variety of lighting conditions
Thanks to its DIGIC 5 Image Processor, the EOS M Digital Camera features a versatile ISO range of ISO 1006400 (expandable to 12800 in H mode) for video recording and ISO 10012800 (expandable to 25600 in H mode) for still image shooting. The EOS M Digital Camera, with the DIGIC 5 Image Processor’s remarkable noise-reduction technology, delivers outstanding performance in low light for incredible video and photos.
DIGIC 5 Image Processor
The EOS M Digital Camera features Canon’s DIGIC 5 Image Processor. The DIGIC 5 Image Processor works with the camera’s CMOS sensor to deliver images with incredible detail in more situations, without the need for artificial light sources. With the power of the DIGIC 5 Image Processor the EOS M Digital Camera can achieve higher ISO sensitivity and even perform advanced functions like HDR Backlight Control, art filters, lens correction and much more. The brilliant “brain” of the camera, this engine supercharges every facet of image capture.
Best quality in a tiny package, WOW
I own the 5D and 5D markII, this little camera is amazing. With the wide angle lens it is super fast and in the burst mode it smokes.

Still a prototype, needs work
Great idea, but it is not fully developed. It needs:
1) Better user interface. It is WAY to easy to accidentally touch the screen and move the focus point, change menu settings, etc. It is hard to hold this small camera without touching the screen. 2) The autofocus is very poor. Slow, 'searches' and often misses the selected point. 3) Only TWO available lenses?! Obviously released early to get it to the market before the NEX locks the market share. Yes, you can use the adapter to attach a 2lb. EF lens... but doesn't that miss the point? 4) LCD only control, no viewfinder 5) non-moveable lcd.
GOOD points: It is small. Good image quality if you can focus properly.

Nice portable camera
Love the fact that I can use my other canon L series lens with this compact camera. I also like the touchscreen and the image quality of photos and video. The only downside is it's poor autofocus capability. I hope this issue can be resolved with a firmware update.

Great Lightweight Package
I bought this camera for my business where I review Alaskan hiking trails, to replace my 7D as a 'trail camera' because of it's weight, size, and build quality. I also shoot video for the reviews with this camera. I have found the EOS M to be a great compromise between the feature set and performance of a DSLR and the convenience, weight and size of a point and shoot camera. It fits easily into my coat pocket when I'm wearing a jacket, and when it's hanging from my neck I barely feel it. My only critique is that the AF is slower than I would like, but for most applications I don't find it to be much of an issue. I would recommend this product to anyone wanting a great travel camera.
