Featuring a new mount by Canon, the EF-M, designed specifically for the new ILC cameras, the EOS-M will also use any of the EF and EF-S lenses with the addition of an available lens mount adapter.

Powering the EOS-M is Canon's DIGIC 5 image processor and 18-Megapixel APS-C sized CMOS image sensor. The processor helps to evaluate and improve image quality without the need for additional light sources, such as an external flash. It does this by choosing the correct shooting modes and scenes and working to reduce noise at higher ISO settings. The image sensor is one of Canon's finest, allowing as much light as possible to reach each pixel, keeping image quality high. It also uses center pixels to assist in the speed and accuracy of the AF system.

The EOS-M does not include a built-in flash unit, but the optional Speedlite 90EX was designed to be extra compact and easy to use, and is an excellent addition to this camera. This compact and powerful flash has a range of up to 30ft. at ISO 100 and can also be used as a master unit to control other slave flash units. Since there are no controls on the unit itself, except for the power, all of its functions are controlled through the camera menu.

You will not find much on the top of the camera. From left to right you see the stereo microphone, hotshoe, power button and shutter release coupled by the camera's mode dial. This keeps the camera user friendly and far less intimidating.

Framing and viewing your images is accomplished on the 3.0-inch clear view touch LCD screen. With more than 1 million dots of resolution, 7 levels of brightness and a smudge-free coating, it is easy to see in all lighting conditions. The screen allows multiple touch features as well as touch AF, making the camera even more fun and as easy as ever to use.

The back of the camera has also been kept very simple, looking like a standard compact digicam. Featuring just a few controls, most of the setting changes will take place through the menu system and touch screen. On the back you have the dedicated video recording button, Menu, INFO and playback buttons all surrounding the 4-way controller. The 4-way controller allows for navigation of the menus as well as acting as a shortcut to the drive mode, exposure compensation and the AE/FE lock button. In playback mode it is also the shortcut to delete images. Around the 4-way controller is a command dial, making navigation and changing camera settings even easier.
