This is Canon’s shot at a mirrorless camera: the EOS M. It sports an 18 megapixel APS-C sensor, DIGIC 5 processor, 3-inch 1.04MP smudge-resistant touchscreen and the T4i’s new hybrid autofocus system. ISO ranges from 100 to 25,600 (extended) in still mode and 12,800 (extended) when shooting video — which can be captured in 1920 x 1080 HD format at 24, 25 or 30 progressive frames per second. Not bad, Canon. There’s also continuous shooting for at 4.3 frames per second and a 22mm lens that will be included as part of a kit starting in October at $800 in black at retail stores, whilst Canon will sell a white version at its online store with a black lens.
Press release after the break.
