Comments about Canon EOS M Mirrorless Digital Camera with 22mm and 18-55mm Lenses and Flash (Black):

I bought this camera after the major price drop and was pleasantly surprised by the cameras performance. For the money, I don't think you can beat it. After reading all of the negative reviews, I almost didn't bother but took a chance anyway. I was looking for a mirrorless compact interchangeable lens cam that could shoot video in full HD. This camera takes vivid color stills as well as great video. I have found instances where the camera had difficulty focusing in mixed light situations but I am able to work with it. I am a Nikon DSLR user but find the offerings from Nikon are not to my liking when it comes to compacts and mirrorless. I like Canon for compacts as the color renditions are spot on. Although there are few physical controls on this camera since it uses an IPhone like interface, it is relatively easy to navigate once you get use to the menu. I do think that Canon is on the right track using an 18mp APS-C sensor as the picture quality is stunning for such a small camera. Don't know that I would pay $ for it which was the asking price back when the camera was first released however, at less than $ which includes the 22m pancake prime, the 18-55mm zoom and flash, it is truly a great value.

Comments about Canon EOS M Mirrorless Digital Camera with 22mm and 18-55mm Lenses and Flash (Black):

I use this product in place of Point and shoot cameras, picture quality is excellent, battery life very good, and it is small enough to go anywhere. Very happy with it. I have not used it with lenses other than those it came with so unable to comment on integration with other Canon lenses

    Comments about Canon EOS M Mirrorless Digital Camera with 22mm and 18-55mm Lenses and Flash (Black):

    I bought this camera on a whim because the price was so low. I've been pleasantly surprised with the quality of the images. The M lenses are better than decent, especially the 22/2, but the ability to adapt EF glass is a big plus for me. I've also enjoyed shooting old Leica screw mount lenses using the Novoflex adapter. Combo works flawlessly and the sensor does a great job rendering the images from these old lenses. I hope Canon moves forward with the M system in N. America, but even if they don't, I'll get a few good years out of this little camera.

    Comments about Canon EOS M Mirrorless Digital Camera with 22mm and 18-55mm Lenses and Flash (Black):

    I own a Canon 60D for 4 years and really loved it. Now that I have a 20 month old boy, I needed something more compact without sacrificing image quality. After reading reviews upon reviews, having to decide between the new ESO M and other digital mirrorless was not easy. I went with the M because I can still use my existing EF lens. As soon as I took a few pictures with it, I was immensely impressed. It was actually as good if not better then my 60D. The 18-55mm is an amazing lens. Great for taking to the park or playground. Very good in low light situation, fast AF, warm but sharp. Image quality was actually better then the EF-S 18-55mm. Its the perfect camera for me. The battery is much smaller then my DSLR so you'll definitely need an extra one if you plan to take a lot of pictures.

          Comments about Canon EOS M Mirrorless Digital Camera with 22mm and 18-55mm Lenses and Flash (Black):

          A great buy. RAW format is a definite plus. Autofocus with zoom-in works really well. Aperture range not as responsive. For the money, you pretty much get the advantages of a full frame camera since the sensor is really advanced. When you have time to take a photo it is hard to beat this camera for the money. Not recommended for fast action (e.g. sports) photos

          This camera got bad press about the auto focus. It's not great but definitely workable. Camera has good color rendition and is a good value at the discount price.

          Takes great pictures. Fairly easy to use.
          A little slow for action shots.
          A adapter was not included for the cord as indicated.
