[Video] EOS M First Hands On Video

While we are waiting for the official announcement of the EOS M, Canon’s mirrorless camera, there is already a first hands-on video that showed up on youtube (thanks to reader Mitch!). The video is in Italian (I speak it). Surprise surprise: the camera comes in different colors. The Canon guy says that «a lot of prototypes have been tried out in Canon – we think we achieved a good product with the EOS M». When asked about a model with viewfinder, he basically is saying that «a viewfinder is something that only DSLR shooter would miss», and: «Maybe there will be a camera with viewfinder in the future». Still no information about the price. Basically, the specs I posted yesterday are confirmed. Moreover…:

  • Manual controls (exposure and aperture) are available through the touchscreen
  • Shutter can be released through the touchscreen, after focus has been locked (2:28″ on the video)
  • 14 bit RAW header
  • External microphone
  • Phase and contrast detection AF
  • Different colors available

The touch-screen seems to be very functional, clean and easy to use. The EOS adapter is huge, but, i guess, that’s the price for being able to use EOS lenses line-up.
