Canon Gives DSLRs a True Challenger With Mirrorless EOS M Camera


Canon shook up the camera world on Monday with its own version of a mirrorless camera featuring interchangeable lenses with the debut of the slim and versatile EOS M. Promoted as a digital video powerhouse, the new EOS is essentially a digital SLR camera shrunk into a smaller package.

You may have heard of the Micro Four-Thirds cameras from the likes of Olympus and Panasonic, which are also mirrorless designs. Without the mechanical mirror system that’s a feature of DSLRs, they tend to be much more compact.

Canon aims to improve on the overall concept of the mirrorless camera in a couple of key ways:

  1. By using a larger image sensor, the 18-megapixel APS-C that’s used in DSLRs like the recently unveiled T4i.
  2. Giving the EOS M the same autofocus system as the T4i, with fast response and the ability to use continuous autofocus for video, with special lenses that produce very little noise.
