Most Favorable Review

Purchased from 1Sale but...

Canon EOS M (6609B074) Black 18 MP 3.0" 1040K LCD Compact Mirrorless System Camera with EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Kit
Canon EOS M (6609B074) Black 18 MP 3.0" 1040K LCD Compact Mirrorless System Camera with EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Kit

Pros: Provides ALL functionality of larger Canon DSLR, mounts ALL Canon EF lenses (EF-M, EF-S, EF) with optional adapter, picture quality very high, movie quality very high, accepts Magic Lantern firmware, stereo microphone input, HDMI and USB output. USB output supports headphones (under Magic Lantern) and allows remote monitoring/control via Android tablet running DSLR controller (Beta)

Cons: Fast auto-focus requires light, do not expect auto-focus to work well in low light.

Overall Review: Purchased because one of the least expensive cameras with microphone input. I researched this camera extensively and was STILL blown away by functionality. Very robust.. 14 y.o. dropped it 4 ft. on concrete Day 1... no damage, no impairment. Another reviewer stated 'There is a bug in the design of the camera that often requires you to detach and reattach the lens before it will release the shutter. This is a known issue but Canon has not issued a fix for it. '. Have never heard of this before this review, have never experienced it. Purchased the body, EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM and EF-M 22mm f/2 STM lenses, and EX90 strobe. Happy with everything, specially given price paid.
