Canon EOS M EF-M 18.0 Megapixel Digital Camera With EF-M 18-55mm IS STM Lens, Model EOSM1855KIT

Inspired by EOS technology, Canon developed the new EOS M Digital Camera. Canon introduced the market to Full HD video capture with smooth, quiet continuous autofocus made possible by Movie Servo AF and STM lenses, advanced CMOS sensor technology, and the processing power of DIGIC 5. The EOS M Digital Camera leverages these key technologies to deliver high-quality moving and still images with creativity provided by Canon's extensive family of interchangeable lenses.

Features:

  • EOS Full HD Movie Mode with Movie Servo AF
    For those looking to capture superb quality Full HD video, the EOS M Digital Camera offers a number of advantages. Offering a large APS-C sized sensor, the camera is able to deliver shallow depth-of-field for achieving impressive cine-style results and the ability to capture clean, high-quality video, even under very low-light conditions. With the optional Mount Adapter EF-EOS M, the camera is also compatible with Canon’s extensive family of EF lenses for boundless creativity. Capable of shooting in a number of recording sizes and frame rates, the EOS M Digital Camera continues Canon’s tradition of performance, quality and simplicity. The EOS M Digital Camera enables easy manual control of focus and exposure. It also automatically splits files greater than 4GB (FAT specifications) for extended recording without interruption. Movie Servo AF allows continuous autofocus tracking of moving subjects while recording video. When shooting video with one of Canon’s new STM lenses, Movie Servo AF takes advantage of the lens’ stepping motor for smooth and quiet continuous AF
  • Built-in stereo microphone, manual audio level adjustment
    The EOS M Digital Camera has an internal stereo microphone for high-quality audio capture and a wind filter feature to reduce wind noise when shooting outdoors. Sound recording levels can be manually (up to 64 different levels) or automatically controlled. A built-in attenuator is also provided to reduce audio clipping. For more advanced audio recording, the EOS M Digital Camera is compatible with many third-party electret condenser microphones with a 3.5mm diameter plug.
  • Video Snapshot
    With the Video Snapshot feature, the EOS M Digital Camera can capture short video clips (of 2, 4 or 8 seconds) then combine them automatically into one video file as a snapshot or highlights “album.” With no editing required after shooting, the compiled video is perfect for sharing online or displaying directly on an HDTV via the camera’s HDMI port. Additionally, stills can be recorded during video shooting simply by pressing the camera’s shutter button. During playback, video clips in an album can now be reordered or deleted
  • 18.0 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor
    The EOS M Digital Camera features Canon’s amazing 18.0 Megapixel CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) sensor. Perfect for enlargements or for cropping detailed portions of the composition, the EOS M Digital Camera’s sensor captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range. This first-class sensor features many of the same new technologies used by professional Canon cameras to maximize each pixel’s light-gathering efficiency and has center pixels that aid in the EOS M Digital Camera’s accurate AF performance. This APS-C size sensor creates an effective 1.6x field of view (compared to 35mm format)
  • Versatile ISO Range for shooting in a wide variety of lighting conditions
    Thanks to its DIGIC 5 Image Processor, the EOS M Digital Camera features a versatile ISO range of ISO 100–6400 (expandable to 12800 in H mode) for video recording and ISO 100–12800 (expandable to 25600 in H mode) for still image shooting. The EOS M Digital Camera, with the DIGIC 5 Image Processor’s remarkable noise-reduction technology, delivers outstanding performance in low light for incredible video and photos
  • DIGIC 5 Image Processor
    The EOS M Digital Camera features Canon’s DIGIC 5 Image Processor. The DIGIC 5 Image Processor works with the camera’s CMOS sensor to deliver images with incredible detail in more situations, without the need for artificial light sources. With the power of the DIGIC 5 Image Processor the EOS M Digital Camera can achieve higher ISO sensitivity and even perform advanced functions like HDR Backlight Control, art filters, lens correction and much more. The brilliant “brain” of the camera, this engine supercharges every facet of image capture
  • Hybrid CMOS AF delivers fast autofocus speed for video and photos
    The EOS M Digital Camera uses a hybrid AF system to deliver incredibly speedy and accurate focus. Its CMOS sensor has center-mounted pixels that are used for phase-difference AF. Phase difference AF is incredibly fast for general distance determination, while contrast AF is incredibly accurate, no matter the location of the focus point. By capitalizing on the strengths of phase-difference and contrast AF systems, the EOS M Digital Camera achieves precise AF, fast
  • Touch Screen 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor II with multi-touch operation and Touch AF
    The EOS M Digital Camera comes with a newly engineered, Touch Screen 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor II. Using the same capacitive technology as today’s popular mobile devices, this new screen is touch-sensitive and delivers intuitive touch panel operation. Two finger touch gestures (multi-touch) can be used for zooming or changing images, menu and quick control settings can be accessed, and focus point and shutter release can be activated with the touch of a fingertip. The additional benefit of Touch AF makes it fast and easy to focus on any subject, by simply touching it on the screen. Displaying fine detail (at approximately 1.04 million pixels), this screen is perfect for composing and reviewing images. Thanks to a new, solid construction between the monitor’s resin-coated cover and the liquid crystal display, reflections are minimized, and the display can be viewed, without glare, from any number of angles. The LCD’s surface is treated with a smudge-resistant coating to minimize fingerprints and maintain a bright, clear image display
  • Compatible with the full line of Canon EF and EF-S lenses (optional Mount Adapter EF-EOS M is required)
    The EOS M Digital Camera features a new style lens mount, called EF-M. Besides the dedicated EF-M lenses, the camera is compatible with the entire family of Canon EF and EF-S lenses by attaching the optional Mount Adapter EF-EOS M. When the adapter is used, the image quality of the lens is preserved, with no light loss or change to image stabilization. From fisheye to telephoto and everywhere in between, Canon offers the most comprehensive lens collection on the planet, with the finest optics and most advanced technologies for whatever application is at hand. When shooting video with one of Canon’s new STM lenses, the camera’s Movie Servo AF feature takes advantage of the lens’ stepping motor for smooth and quiet continuous AF
  • Scene Intelligent Auto mode
    The EOS M Digital Camera features an enhanced Scene Intelligent Auto mode that incorporates a number of Canon technologies to deliver the best possible exposure. Joining Picture Style Auto, Automatic Lighting Optimizer, Automatic White Balance, Autofocus, and Automatic Exposure, Scene Intelligent Auto mode analyzes the image, accounting for faces, colors, brightness, moving objects, contrast, even whether the camera is handheld or on a tripod, and then chooses the exposure and enhancements that bring out the best in any scene or situation
  • Handheld Night Scene mode
    Accessible right on the EOS M Digital Camera’s Mode Dial, Handheld Night Scene mode captures nightscapes with bright highlights and detailed dark areas, delivering results previously impossible without the use of a tripod. By shooting and combining four consecutive shots at a shutter speed fast enough to avoid camera shake, the EOS M Digital Camera’s Handheld Night Scene mode makes dramatic nighttime photography simple
  • HDR Backlight Control mode
    The EOS M Digital Camera’s HDR Backlight Control mode ensures that backlit subjects are not recorded too dark. By shooting three consecutive shots at different exposures (underexposed, correctly exposed and overexposed) and then combining the images, the final result maintains detail in both the shadow and highlight areas, ensuring the backlit subject is properly exposed
  • Seven Creative Filters, plus new Art Bold Effect and Water Painting Effect
    Adding to the fun and creative possibilities available with the EOS M Digital Camera are seven different creative filters that can dramatically alter the mood and visual effect of any particular scene. Creative Filters include Grainy Black and White, Soft Focus, Fish-eye Effect, Toy Camera Effect, Miniature Effect and new filters: Art Bold Effect (makes the photos look like an oil painting, with subjects appearing three-dimensional), and Water Painting Effect (photos are altered to look like a water-colored painting). Since the filters can be applied to the image after shooting, it’s easy to try several effects on the same shot. These creative effects can also be applied to video, for additional imaginative fun
  • Multi Shot Noise Reduction
    To enhance its already admirable high ISO shooting capabilities, the EOS M Digital Camera features an intelligent Multi Shot Noise Reduction tool that reduces noise even further than the camera’s sensor and the DIGIC 5 Image Processor alone. With Multi Shot Noise Reduction activated, the camera takes four consecutive shots, merges and aligns them. This eliminates more noise than the traditional Noise Reduction filter, with little or no apparent resolution loss. Moving subjects are even optimized to minimize subject blur! Thanks to this clever new feature, high ISO shooting has never looked better
  • Compatible with SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards, including new Ultra High Speed cards
    The EOS M Digital Camera uses popular SD, SDHC, SDXC and is even compatible with the newest Ultra High Speed (UHS-I) memory cards. Compact and available in large capacities, SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards are a perfect complement to the EOS M Digital Camera’s design

    Truly awesome compact APS-C sensor landscape camera for advance users. Advanced photographers will likely be very satisfied with this camera when used within in strengths. If your looking for a killer easy to pack EOS camera for backcountry landscape photography, look no further. All the junk and negative rants written about this camera are highly overplayed. This is a great camera for numerous reason. It's truly sad just how much bad press this camera is getting. Congratulations Canon. The EOS-M is a winner that will likely be well received over time. If your looking for an advanced compact landscape camera, please look past the negative rants and give it a try!

    I had been waiting for this camera a long time. A small camera offering much of the performance of a DLSR is perfect for many of my photographic needs. Keeping a camera with me and available is one of my cardinal rules, one I have held to for my entire adult life. Most recently it is a Canon G series that has been my carry camera. A G9, G11 and currently a G12. But there are times a small sensor compact just can't get the shot, and I do not have the DSLR with me. This camera looked to be the middle road that I needed. The build quality of the EOS-M is beautiful, it just feels good in the hand. The touch screen is new to me, the performance is snappy and accurate, with some useful features. The kit 22mm f/2 lens is an impressive little piece of glass, sharp and fast, creating impressive photo quality. The focus on the EOS-M is SLOW, worse than my G12 by a large margin. I expected it to be somewhere between that of the compact and a DSLR, but was surprised with what I found. Using both cameras side by side on the same subject was an informative exercise. Given a simple scene it is faster, in practice it is worse, particularly up close. Without a remote shutter release connector, why is there not an intervalometer function built into the camera? Battery life is similarly disappointing. A red flashing symbol after an hour of shooting around 100 frames? The worst surprise was yet to come, discovered when I plugged the camera into the computer and loaded the latest version of the EOS Utilities. There is no remote shooting! This little fact is not clear in the specifications, even when I go back and look for it. Why does this camera lack something that every other recent EOS camera supports? I do a lot of technical shooting... astrophotography, time lapse, etc. Without a reasonable way to control the camera, no remote shooting, no shutter release connector, a potentially great camera is crippled. It is the removal of remote shooting that is the biggest issue, something that makes no sense to me. Time to get an RMA number and send it back. Looks like my G12 will be in use a bit longer.

      Comments about Canon EOS M EF-M 18.0 Megapixel Digital Camera With EF-M 18-55mm IS STM Lens:

      This camera was bought as a backup and handy camera, which it is. I have a much larger system of lenses and camera for the primary shooting. That system is quite heavy. This camera came with the 18-55 mm lens and is able to fit into the front game pocket of my hunting vest. The vest offers some padding, but not like a camera case would. I am used to manual controls on my cameras to control all the aspects of the camera, so would like to see them on the lens as well. I know the camera can be adjusted by going into the menu and adjusting it that way. It appears to be simple, but I have not taken the time to fiddle around with it to see if it is quick at all. I am sure it won't be as quick as a manual control would be though. The camera is working well as a very portable snapshot and handy camera. I have been able to shoot Sundews in a bog and wide angle shots afar. I have a polarizer on the front of the lens, which is difficult to see the effect with the LCD view screen, but possible, particularly when the camera back has light on it. The camera size is tiny so fat fingers will have some time adjusting to using the camera. I'm getting better about that.

        Overall not a bad camera, takes good pictures, but takes a while to get used to after an older EOS comers. It has three areas I would like to see Canon improve or correct in future firmware upgrades: 1) the touch focus and shoot feature is terrible. When I carry it, it bumps against my belly, turns itself on, and takes pictures. 2) Needs a standby mode, should be able to standby and save power and then recover quickly, not have to do a full shutdown every time. 3) Need to allow for movies longer than 30 minutes. Not sure why they limit ti to 30 minutes, but it does.

          Image quality is great and the auto focus has never been an issue. Super low light ability and very versatile. You do trade off the tilt screen and viewfinder for size, being able to view output on a monitor while using the camera would be a plus. I have used this camera in a lot of different shooting situations and have found it to be very capable. The only thing that I would add to the wish list is full compatibility with the EOS Utility software. I use this camera every day and there are times when remote shooting or other utilities would come in handy. The camera is built well and feels very solid. It is compact and easy to carry around but could use a little bit more compatibility with the EOS software that it ships with.

          • dirt cheap as of 3-2014
          • pictures as good as a 7d
          • Tiny and light

          Cons

          • can't burn date into picture easily
          • can be hard to hold no good grip place

            I've owned 6-7 Canon bodies and 5-6 EF L lenses. Love this little camera. Digic 5 processor and APS-C in a little tiny package. Great little lenses and with the adaptor can strap on my 16-35, 70-200IS2, EF 35-350, whatever. All it is is a great sensor and processor that you put on your monstor lenses, or a tiny little camera that basically takes the same pics as a 7D. Built like a tank. The only thing I don't like is you can't burn dates into the pics without going through the Canon software.

              Hate to see all of the neg reviews but industry-wide, it has helped drive prices down so low, this was just too darned good of a digi-cam to pass up! 1, with the EF lens adapter, this is a mini powerhouse! 2, simply incredible video - breath-taking color & resolution! 3, this isn't an action camera - yet. I have dSLRs for that. Sure, Canon has work to do on a newer model - but for what it is, it's a superb camera. 4, bought the EF-S 11-22mm not available in the USA (?!?!?) and with the EF-M 18-55mm, this is THE best travel camera. Ever! Don't regret grabbing one before a newer model comes out - leaves all of my PowerShots in the dust on pure image quality - just no contest!

                Comments about Canon EOS M EF-M 18.0 Megapixel Digital Camera With EF-M 18-55mm IS STM Lens:

                Like many others I purchased the EOS M around Black Friday at what I figured was a steal. It's incredibly well built and has every feature one could ask for. Obviously the most glaring issue is, of course, the slow autofocus. Not sort of slow, not relatively slow to other cameras...extremely, almost throw-throw-it-in-the-garbage, slow. As big and relevant of a camera corporation as Canon is I can't imagine how this design could leave their engineering dept? I shudder to think how slow the AF was before the update. The EOS M2 will be out soon in Europe and there's no definitive answer as to it's availability in the US. Either way, Canon's quick turnaround of a new model in less than a year screams they knew this was a dud from the start. The only thing that could prove Canon actually stands behind what they sell would be to roll out more updates for the firmware. If the AF can be increased from the time it left the factory the it can be improved once again. Also, everyone should be forewarned...the 22mm f2 lens is slower and louder than the 18-55mm. It if were bigger it would make a nice coaster. You're the last major company to the mirrorless party and this is what you give us? Awful.

Ive owned a 5D II and a D600 and this is as good as aps-c gets. a little laggy but all mirrorles are a bit at least. wish someone would make an electric viewfinder . touch screen rules. video is gorgous. if you like the canon look in your images and you don't buy this you are an idiot. image quality is better than a 7D which ive used plenty.

                        Comments about Canon EOS M EF-M 18.0 Megapixel Digital Camera With EF-M 18-55mm IS STM Lens:

                        I bought the EOS-M on "Black Friday," in great part because I was highly encouraged by proclamations that its firmware update Ver. 2.0.2 increased auto-focus (AF) speed and accuracy. BAD NEWS: I am very disappointed in slo-o-o-w auto AF--which too often has caused me to miss great moments. The 22mm lens is slower to focus than the 18-55mm. In fact, my wife's average quality point-and-shoot focuses faster and more reliably than the EOS-M with any lens attached. Based on my personal experience, I REALLY, REALLY implore Canon to develop another firmware update that improves AF to acceptable speed & reliability, reduces the AF's major hunting for focus indoors (especially as its 18-55 STM lens is zoomed closer to 55mm), defaults to lower auto ISOs when the flash is on, and (here's the easiest one, I think) allows ISO to be set in 1/2 or 1/3 stop increments. In addition to the aforementioned shortcomings, key missing features that should have been on the EOS-M and certainly belong on the next generation model are: (1) Built-in flash is essential due to considerable noise at ISO 1600 and up; I bought the 90EX flash, which does well for its size, but you need to plan ahead by installing it "just in case" or risk missing a low-light moment; (2) longer battery duration; (3) an easily accessible button to manually lock/unlock the touch screen so contact with my chest won't change settings; and (4) either quicker start-up time or sleep mode that awakens the camera with touch of shutter release button. GOOD NEWS: Great still & video image quality (in moderate to normal light). Phenomenal large aperture pics with my EF prime lenses (85mm f/1.8 and my favorite 35mm f/1.4 L). BOTTOM LINE: Not bad for Canon's 1st attempt, but I really expected much better from the undisputed champion of photo equipment. Canon really owes current EOS-M customers the firmware updates I've begged for above and a higher capacity battery. I've been extremely loyal to Canon since 1986 and have loved all Canon products I've owned. However, I am seriously debating whether to return my EOS-M or learn to accept and work within its several unfortunate limitations. -- END --

                        We need Canon to break the mold and this camera is on the track but not the answer. Smartphones are the best camera because they are with you. Instead we need: - A small body but with this highly capable large sensor. - A high quality, fixed lens of 28 or 35-mm (35mm format equivalent). - An Electronic View Finder (EFV) besides the back screen. - Built in WiFi that can emit its own standalone WiFi field like some SD memory cards, and GPS. (Besides positioning, GPS enables highly accurate time synchronized images to the second.) - WiFi enabled remote viewing and operation by smartphone. - And most importantly, it runs on AA batteries. If you can't bring yourself to break the paradigm of small expensive, underpowered Lithium batteries, at least enable an external AA battery pack accessory. AA batteries are not only less expensive, but far more versatile. - Develop a post processing smartphone / tablet app that be continually upgraded as an accessory for Canon cameras. - Think XA
