Upgrade to Canon EOS M retains sensor, adds Wi-Fi
Canon has launched a revised version of its EOS M mirrorless camera. The upgraded EOS M2, announced in Japan, retains the appearance of the original but manages to improve its autofocus speed to approximately 2.3 times as fast as its predecessor, as well as using its Hybrid CMOS AF II to scan over 80 percent of what the viewfinder is able to see.
Canon last of four largest camera makers to use mirrorless system
Canon has officially unveiled its previously rumored mirrorless camera, the EOS M. The launch makes Canon the last of the large four manufacturers to use such a system, with Sony's NEX-C3, Nikon's J1 and V1, and Fujifilm's X-Pro 1 reaching the market earlier this year and late last year. Using an 18-megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor with the DIGIC 5 image processor, the EOS M appears to match many of the specifications the Rebel T4i uses, if not sharing the physical appearance.
