Canon enters the mirror-less arena with the EOS M

Today Canon unveiled their own mirror-less compact system camera, the Canon EOS M. With the same 18 Mega Pixel 1.6x crop factor sensor as used in the EOS 650D, this is promising to be a very nice compact system camera indeed!
Some specs:
  • 18.0 Mega Pixel CMOS (APS-C, 1.6x) sensor
  • ISO 100-12,800 (expandable to 25,600 in H mode). Note that for video this is restricted to ISO 100-6,400 (expandable to 12,800 in H mode)
  • 1.04 Mega Pixel 3" Touch Screen (!)
  • Phase & Contrast AF (like the Nikon V1 and Canon EOS 650D this will likely mean ultra-fast Auto Focus)
  • Storage: SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card (including the new Ultra High Speed (UHS-I) cards)
  • EF-M mount (an optional adapter to make the EOS M compatible with Canon EF and EF-S lenses will be available too)
  • Built-in three frame HDR
  • Multi Shot Noise Reduction (combines multiple shots to reduce noise)
  • Compatible with existing Canon Speedlite accessories
  • Compatible with the Canon GP-E2 GPS Receiver
  • Size: 108.6 x 66.5 x 32.3mm
  • Weight: 262g (body only), 298g (including battery and memory card)
  • Video:
    • Servo AF
    • 1920×1080 30p/25p/24p (Full HD) and 1280×720 60p/50p
    • MPEG-4, AVC/H.264 encoding
    • Built-in stereo microphone
    • Manual audio level adjustment
    • Video Snapshot mode with touch-screen editing

Together with the EOS M camera, 2 lenses (the EF-M 22 f/2 STM and EF-M 18-55 IS), a new flash (the EX 90) and an EF lens adaptor (to be able to mount Canon EF and EF-S lenses), will be made available too.
