Canon EOS M: More Sample Images with Canon's Mirrorless Camera

Canon EOS M:  More Sample Images with Canon's Mirrorless Camera


Here are a few more sample images taken last week with the Canon EOS M, Canon's new mirrorless camera.  The EOS M utilizes the same APS-C-sized sensor found in Canon's latest APS-C DSLR, the EOS T4i.  This 18 Megapixel sensor with a DIGiC 5 image processor has expanded ISO sensitivity to 25,600, allowing for shooting in very low light conditions.

The sensor is also larger than the popular Micro Four Thirds sensor, and allows for a "form factor" multiplier of 1.6x as opposed to the Micro Four Thirds' 2x -- in other words, a 50mm lens on the Canon EOS M (and other APS-C cameras) becomes an 80mm lens (1.6 x 50mm = 80mm), while a 50mm lens on a Micro Four Thirds body becomes a 100mm lens (2 x 50mm = 100mm).  The included kit EF-M 22mm f/2.0 STM thus becomes a 35mm lens.

The EOS M is great for casual portraits.  Canon EOS M with 22mm EF-M f/2 STM, 1/640 sec. at f/2.5, ISO 200.

The EOS M could be much quicker focusing on quickly moving subjects, but still manages to hold its own when you bump up the ISO.  Canon EOS M with 22mm EF-M f/2 STM, 1/160 sec. at f/5.6, ISO 400.
