EOS M3 - the power of EOS, only smaller

Canon has announced the EOS M3 – a powerful Compact System Camera (CSC). At the heart of the camera is Canon’s first 24.2 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and its most advanced image processor, DIGIC 6, delivering premium quality stills and Full HD Movies.

The sensor’s 100-12,800 ISO range provides low-noise shots in challenging light situations.

The 49-point AF system and innovative new Hybrid CMOS AF III technology deliver fast focusing (up to 6.1x faster than the original EOS M).

Putting you in control – iconic EOS design and controls

The EOS M3 incorporates the EOS design DNA and is instantly comfortable in the palm of your hand thanks to the fluid design grip. Direct access to a range of controls, including an exposure compensation dial, main control dial and customisable buttons, let you adjust the camera’s settings to suit your shooting style.

For framing versatility, the large 7.5cm (3 inch) LCD touch-screen tilts up 180 degrees and down 45 degrees to help you shoot from all angles, while also making multi-touch gestures a finger tap away. The screen also gives you access to Canon’s intuitive touch menu system found on EOS DSLRs.

The EOS M3 offers customisable controls, a hot-shoe for Speedlite flash guns and optional tilt-type electronic viewfinder. Compatibility with EF-M lenses, including a choice of pancake and zoom lenses, means you can shoot any situation.

With Creative Assist, the EOS M3 can be controlled from the touch screen interface and the effects previewed in real time as you shoot. Settings such as brightness, background blur, vividness of colour, contrast, warmth and filter effects can be altered, and combinations can be saved to be called upon again when you need them.

Movie makers can shoot in Full HD quality, with a choice of 24p, 25p and 30p frame rates and MP4, for easy sharing.  Advanced Hybrid CMOS AF III provides continuous autofocus. For more experienced shooters, Touch AF gives you the flexibility to select AF points on the LCD, even with moving subjects, and create professional-looking pull focus effects. For full control, Manual Movie puts you in the director’s seat, with complete aperture, shutter and ISO control.

Power to control and share

Ideal for shooting in unusual situations and positions for unique perspectives, remote shooting via the new Camera Connect app lets you control the camera’s key functions.

Dynamic NFC enables single touch image transfers to smart devices while the auto-sync functionality means you can upload all your images to Canon’s cloud storage service, irista, for instant back-up.

Pricing and availability

The EOS M3 will be available from April 2015 with an RRP of £599.99 / €769.99.
