Some videos show unboxing, but here i'm planning to 'Re-Box' Canon's first mirrorless camera, the EOS-M. I'm sure there will be some comments about how I didn't really spend enough time to learn the camera, but I honestly don't see the point. Maybe if this were considered an entry level camera, i'd think twice but Canon wants to charge $800 dollars for this camera. At that price, I expect it to be at the same level as other mirrorless cameras such as the Olympus OM-D, DMC-GH3, or Sony Alpha NEX.

I feel like the mirrorless market is something many professionals are taking seriously, and after so many years of refinement from Panasonic, Olympus, and Sony, I can't understand what Canon was trying to do here. Sure there's an adapter to use the massive lineup of HUGE professional EF lenses onto the EOS-M, but why? That not only defeats the purpose of the small form factor, there is also nothing very special about the quality coming out of this camera.

In my opinion, there is just not enough to love on the Canon EOS-M mirrorless to justify the price and not enough accessories or lenses available (at this time). You're better off grabbing a Canon T3i for about $460 dollars than to spend $800 on something that lacks so much compared to what we're seeing from other companies. That's my rant, what's your opinion on this camera?

Canon EOS-M Mirroless Camera

Canon has officially announces the latest Canon EOS-M Mirrorless camera. It will be available in a variety of colored bodies and uses a new EF-M lens mount. The first EF-M lens to be released will be a 22mm F/2 STM lens, but there will be an adapter to mount EF and EF-S lenses.

It's been leaked out for several days now, and although it's exciting to see Canon in this space, they are also pretty late to the party. Given that they have consistently been disabling certain features in their cameras, I can't say i'm overly excited either. I'll just be watching on the side to see what others will have to say. Still, if you're interested in knowing more about Canon's latest EOS-M camera, you can find it at the product page via B&H (Click Here)
