torn between whether to buy a DSLR camera and a compact point-and-shooter camera? then the new Canon EOS-M Digital Camera should end your deliberation between the two. the first mirrorless camera aka Compact Camera System (CSC) from Canon, the EOS-M promised to deliver DSLR-quality imaging in a compact form factor. under the hood is a versatile 18.0-megapixel APS-C hybrid CMOS sensor matched to a DIGI 5 image processor, along with features like ISO range of 100-12,800 for still image and ISO 100-6,400 for video recording, a 3.0-inch Clear View LCD II touchscreen with support for Touch AF and multitouch gestures, compatibility with SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards, Stepping Motor Technology (STM) for a silent operation, full HD 1080p (30p, 24p and 25p) video recording, manual control over video recording, in-camera video editing, Scene Intelligent Auto, and compatibility with a full range Canon Speedlite accessories and EF lenses with the available Mount Adapter.

it looks like Canon is listening in to consumer’s wishes and the EOS-M would no doubt fill the void that has been left empty for a very long time. coincidentally, i was actually looking for a replacement for my Lumix prosumer camera and an aging Sony compact point-and-shoot, and did at one point wonder if there’s a in-between camera that could performs like a DSLR and yet compact enough to be used every other day. i guess my wish has been answered but how well it will perform remains to be seen. the Canon EOS-M Digital Camera will come bundled with the new EF-M 22mm f/2 STM kit lens and carries a retail sticker of $799.99. expect this compact wonder, along with accessories such as the EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 STM lens, Mount Adapter and Speedlite 90EX flash, to hit the stores this October. hit past the jump for a few more look at this exciting new camera from Canon. oh, there’s one more thing: there is a white version of the EOS-M but that will only be available exclusively through Canon online store.
