[Rumor] EOS M Full Specifications Leaked

Digicame-info posted what appear to be the real specs of Canon’s mirrorless camera, expected to be announced tomorrow. Looks like the Rebel T4i/650D sensor with its hybrid AF system (auto-focus through phase detection) is featured on the EOS M – good news for all of us that are into video. Hence, it can be assumed to a high degree of certainty that the EOS M will not have the sensor of the PowerShot G1 X: the EOS M most probably has an APS-C sized 18MP sensor, the same (?) as the Rebel T4i/650D. The EOS M will come with two Kit lens, the EF-M22mm STM and the EF-M18-55mm IS STM. The remaining specs below.

– APS-C CMOS sensor 18 million pixels
– The image processing engine DIGIC5
– Hybrid CMOS AF in combination with phase-contrast
– Video Servo AF, Servo AF, AF touch
– The range is equivalent ISO 25600 ISO100-12800, in the expansion
– To 30 seconds shutter speed is 1/4000, bulb, flash sync is 1/200 sec
– Second continuous shooting speed is 4.3 frames /
– 1.04 million dot LCD monitor 3.0-type wide, touch panel
– The media SD / SDHC / SDXC (corresponding UHS-I)
– Video is 1920×1080 30p/25p/24p, 1280×720 60p/50p, 640×480 30p/25p
Method – video compression MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, audio Linear PCM, MOV format
– Available in over 60 species of EF lens mount adapter EF-EOS M
– Hand-held Twilight mode synthesized by the continuous shooting at a shutter speed four with less camera shake
– HDR mode to synthesize three different exposure
– Multi-shot noise reduction function to reduce the noise by combining the four images
– Creative filters
– The size is x 66.5mm (width) 108.6mm (height) x 32.3mm (depth)
– The weight (body only) 262g, (including battery and memory card) 298g
– Kit lens EF-M22mm STM, EF-M18-55mm IS STM
– Comes with a mount adapter and EF-EOS M 90EX Speedlite kit of some

I expect the announcement tomorrow, July 23, around 06-07 AM London time (00:00 EST). Stay tuned as I will provide all the news in real time (pre-order links, specifications, and what ever is out there 🙂 ).

    price… that´s the most important info now…

  • Ping

    All in all, a very promising camera. Though I would wait for the next higher model with EVF.

    Well done, Canon!!

    • Gabriel

      The higher model is the 650D. Very same specs and OVF.

  • Lars

    a 650D in a smaller package.

    to be usefull for me it needs an EFV in the pro modell.

    • +1 on the EVF, but as it is, if the IQ is there (which i’m basically taking for granted because it basically packs the 7d guts inside it) and the AF is on par with current m43 offerings, this little camera and the 35mm equivalent pancake could make it into my travel bag!

    • Gabriel

      What a leak, it’s the same specs than the 650D 😉 I hope there is a connector for external mic. Only few hours to know this and the price.

  • M2

    Canon morons…. no 1920×1080 60p ??? It is a big NO NO ….


      It doesn’t matter, they need to fix the moire issues first.

  • Miroslav

    Nothing spectacular, but OK for a start.

    F2 normal pancake lens, competitive sensor, PDAF on sensor, small dimensions, touch focus, stacking modes, things some of the others are yet to master.

    Good contemporary mirrorless camera. Unlike some competitors, Canon has laid very strong foundations. The new camera is already 100% compatible with all EF-S lenses. The only thing missing is a body with grip and EVF, but that will come … and IBIS – that will not :).

  • pepe

    So no the price please.

  • Aim9x

    Maybe the same price of the upcoming Sony NEX5F, no? (799$ with a 18-55 kit lense)

  • Keith

    Only one manual dial – cannot control Aperture and Exp comp at same time.
    The dial around the shutter button could have been a useful control dial. But instead a useless mode switch.

  • Rangefinder

    A very good first model in a new range. It seems very small too which for me is a plus. Video looks like it will be great
    Still unknown.
    1 audio input?
    2 evf possible on this model in the future ?
    3 are we sure EF-s and EF are both compatible with the adapter ?
    4 price?
    5 native lens road map.
    6 will canon make their own FD adapter?
    7 What it all hangs on – image quality and ease of use.
