Canon has announced a third-generation model of its mirrorless hybrid M range, cunningly named the EOS M3. Boasting features filtered down from Canon’s new entry-level DLRs, including a 24.2Mp APS-C sensor, together with a redesigned shell for improved handling, has Canon delivered a hybrid camera that will excite enthusiasts?
Canon was the last maker to introduce a mirrorless camera to the market and after something of a false start with EOS M, the company has released an update with the same Hybrid CMOS II sensor as the company’s Rebel SL1 (100D). Read on to find out how the new, Asia only, EOS M2 performs.
With a traditional looking design, the latest addition to Panasonic’s Lumix CSC range the GM1 is, arguably, the firm’s slickest camera yet. It has the same 16-Mpix-resolution sensor as the larger, rangefinder-style GX7, and although housed in a tiny aluminum shell it features a 3-inch touchscreen LCD, plenty of manual control and an electronic shutter capable of 1/16000th max shutter speed and 40fps burst. Read on to find out how this super-compact model performs.
As the equivalent field of view to a 35mm f2.0, this high-speed, compact “pancake’ type lens is an appealing option for the EOS M system user. Read on to find out how well this prime performs in our labs.
Although not officially released in the US, as the equivalent to an 18-35mm the new EF-M 11-22mm f4-5.6 IS STM is an essential addition to the EOS M system. Read on to find out how well it performs in our labs.
Introduced in July this year, the EOS 70D at first sight seems like a regular update to the maker’s mid-range EOS 60D model. It shares a number of features with the firm’s existing SLR range including a 19-point cross-type phase detection AF system, a 3-inch (1.040M dot) articulated touchscreen and built-in WiFi connectivity with remote viewing and image transfer. The camera can also shoot at up to 7fps and has 1080/30p video recording with stereo sound using an optional external microphone.
When launched, the EOS-M complete with the EF-M 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS STM zoom was $899, but the kit can now be had for as little as $345. With lens available separately for $269 that sounds too good to be true. Read on to see how well the combination performs.
Canon’s lightest and smallest DSLR to date the EOS 100D (aka Rebel SL1 / Kiss X7) is unashamedly aimed at the entry-level market. However, boasting a 2nd-generation ‘Hybrid’ 18-Mpix CMOS sensor and many features of the upper entry-level EOS 700D, this minuscule model is an intriguing proposition. But is it simply a case of cramming in a similar sensor and miniaturizing the rest? Read on to find out. In this review we also reveal the results of the Sony SLT Alpha 37 sensor.
Launched in September 2011, the Samsung NX200 marks a significant point in the NX line because it features an all-new APS-C CMOS sensor with 20.3megapixels. Among the hybrid cameras, this is about as big as sensors currently get, so Samsung are aiming at the high ground, a fact confirmed by the premium feel all-metal body – a first in the NX-series.
That can't be right. I've never heard of Sony using BSI image sensors. They only appear in some compacts and mobile phone cameras like the iPhone. BSI APS-C? that has to be an error. As for Canon, it looks like more of the same, stuck in the same place for the past 5-6 years, their APS-C sensors need a major overhaul. It's sad that a used Sony NEX C3 has an image sensor that beats the one in a Canon 7D.
