Canon still produces mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses
Rumors of his own mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses from Canon has finally been confirmed. Surprisingly, it is always walking in front of a manufacturer of photographic equipment like a camera produces one of the last. Canon’s new compact will be named EOS M. Mirrorless cameras are a fast growing market segment of photography. Compact and lightweight machines with interchangeable lenses provide high image quality comparable to the much more bulky SLR cameras.
Such products make Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, Olympus, and more recently Nikon – Canon’s main rival in the segment of professional equipment. But forget about the other companies and focus finally on the novelty of EOS M. The camera is equipped with a 18-megapixel photosensitive matrix is â€‹â€‹the same as the recently announced EOS 650D. In this EOS M is almost two times lighter than its mirror-brother, and is easier to manage. At various regional markets EOS M will be available in September and October. Price in the U.S. of 800 $ bundled with a simple lens with no zoom function.
Camera EOS M uses a new standard for interchangeable lens Canon EF-M, smaller and lighter than the SLR Canon. Along with the camera lens company produces two series of EF-M (22 mm f / 2 and 18-55 mm f / 3,5-5,6). But the owners of the standard EF-series lenses for SLR cameras, Canon do not worry – from the extra spending will save them a special adapter. A similar policy – partial compatibility of lenses for traditional SLR series – is shared by other manufacturers of system cameras. This allows them to increase revenues without losing all devotees of the brand. At EOS M lacks built-in flash (Canon offers compact external exchange), but due to its high sensitivity (ISO 12800), the novelty can shoot at much lower light than most compact cameras and built-in cameras of mobile phones.
