Canon EOS M Micro Four-Thirds Camera Leaked: Canon’s First Entry in Segment

by Range

According to tipsters, patents, and a couple of Japanese websites, it looks like Canon is set to release their first Micro Four-Thirds camera very soon. For now, all that remains are the discovery of the full specs and what the camera actually looks like.

The Canon EOS M will match other Micro Four-Thirds cameras like the Olympus E-M5 and Panasonic Lumix G. The above image might give an inkling to what the camera looks like, but it could just be a masterful exercise in Photoshop. The Japanese site Digicame-info reports that it will be named EOS M, and it does look like a thin, mirrorless camera. It is expected to come with an entirely new mount, the EF-M, which could mean that the sensor would be closer to a full APS-C than to the one used in the PowerShot G1 X. This could mean that the sensors would be bigger than other Micro Four-Thrid cameras, which would be good news.

Canon is expected to make an announcement on July 23rd, so we’ll know exactly what they have in store then.

    Neither this camera nor the Samsung NXs are m4/3-cameras. They have a APSC-sized sensor.

      It’s true that the Samsung NXs are “hybrid”, a sort of in-between. For the sensor size, if they are closer to DSLRs than other cameras, then it’s good news.

    Range, I just want to fill you in on some things. Most DSLRs have APS-C sized sensors. Micro Four-Thirds cameras are called that because of the size of their sensors – 4/3″. And just to nitpick, bigger sensors don’t guarantee better everything: they make a wide aperture much harder (more expensive), as well as close-up photography. Having said that, they will on the whole give better image quality, especially high ISO performance, and have much better shallow DOF possibilities.

      Hey Chris, I’m well aware of the difference between DSLRs and Micro Four Thirds cameras, but thanks for pointing out the difference to our readers.

    I think the point that folks are trying to make is that not all mirrorless cameras are micro four thirds. As far as I know only Olympus and Panasonic are using the MFT format.
