EOS M - The digital single lens non-reflex EOS camera
The biggest breakthrough of the EOS M lies in Canon's ability to contain an EOS System in a compact body, with full compatibility with new and existing EF and EF-S lenses (with adapter). It achieves this by using a non-reflex mechanism that allows all its components to be housed in a slim and lightweight body. EOS M is by far the most accessible EOS camera providing the same level of photographic brilliance of a DSLR.
The greatest benefit of a DSLR is its versatility that comes with using interchangeable lenses. Like other EOS cameras, the EOS M is able to take on the full repertoire of EF and EF-S lenses with the Mount Adapter EF-EOS M, greatly expanding the user's creativity. The beauty of the adapter is that full functionalities of the EF lenses are retained with no compromises in image quality.
The EF-M lenses, a set of lightweight and compact lenses dedicated for the usage with EOS M ensures that the intent of the EOS M category is fulfilled. Despite their sleek outlook, they capture crisp images with the finest details, parallel to that of an EF lens.
With the traditional optical viewfinder, the main mirror and mirror drive mechanism replaced with digital functions, the size and weight of EOS M is significantly pared down, resulting in a sleek and portable camera body.
Yet, despite its pint size, EOS M bears the hallmarks of the EOS heritage of ergonomic design and technological excellence featuring an 18 - megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 image processor.
