Reviewed: The Canon EOS M3

The Canon EOS M3 is Canon’s second attempt to gain a foothold in the market for mirrorless system cameras. After only mild success of the first EOS M this proves certainly to be no easy task. EOS M customers had to get used to the housing, it was too complicated to operate, too slow was the autofocus. But the Japanese have obviously listened closely: The Canon EOS M3 is a thoroughly successful CSC that comes close to the quality of the DSLR squad.

Specs:

  • 24.2 MP APS-C CMOS sensor
  • Hybrid CMOS AF III
  • Powerful DIGIC 6 processing
  • 3.0 inch (1040k) ClearView II Tilt Touchscreen
  • 49 Point AF & 4.2 fps continuous shooting
  • Scene Intelligent Auto
  • Stunning 1080p movies at 24, 25 and 30 fps
  • Creative Assist
  • Wi-Fi, Dynamic NFC, remote control and sharing

Canon EOS M3:  Sharp

The most important thing directly in the beginning: With the Canon EOS M3 the new 24-megapixel APS-C Sensor celebrates his debut and has technically a lot to offer. For example the light sensitivity ISO 100-12800 that can even be boosted up to 25,600. Good results are achieved by the Canon EOS M3 but only for a maximum of ISO 3,200. After that the noise increases greatly and details are getting blurred away. But in total this is still a pretty decent result.

Touch and Selfies

As a motive catcher on the M3 serves mainly the high-resolution 3-inch screen.. Narcissistic inspired photographers will probably be very happy that the display can be turned forwards 180 degrees for Selfies. Filmmakers will also like the touch function, this is allowing you to set the focus point by touching the screen during the recording of Full HD video at 30 frames per second as you require. A decent stereo mic can be found on board while an external recording device can, via 3,5mm jack, be connected on the side. A mini HDMI output as well as contact points for the flash hot shoe enabling the use if the electronic viewfinder EVF-DC1 are also integrated. Continue reading Reviewed: The Canon EOS M3
