New Canon Camera - We Get A Sneak Preview

Yesterday was particularly satisfying here in the shop - the Canon representative slipped in wearing a dark cloak, a wide-brimmed hat, and a surreptitious expression. His first words were "Pssst. C'mere. Wanna see what I got under this cloak?"

We nervously agreed. He unfolded a sample of the new Canon EOS-M camera with a zoom lens on it. Swearing us to secrecy, possibly in the hope that we would tell everyone we can, he let us play with the camera.

It is a mirrorless digital with removable lens - Canon have their own EF mount for this - and uses the LCD screen on the back as viewfinder. The interface is mostly menu-driven but there is a three-way mode swithch surrounding the shutter button.

I saw the 18-55 lens mounted - it had some of the best ergonomics and finish of any lens in this class that I have seen - really sleek but with great knurling to zoom with. There is going to be a kit with a pancake-style 22mm f:2 lens as well. And I am willing to bet that there will eventually be a whole series of lenses dedicated to this mount.

Ah, but here it gets interesting. Canon will also be supplying an EF to EOS adapter that will allow Canon users to attach their regular EOS lenses to the new camera. You might be able to keep this new camera in your camera bag as an emergency back-up when you are using your big DSLR - and when you need to get more focal length from your current lenses, well away you go. I'm afraid I can visualize someone crawling up Bluff Knoll lugging a 600mm Canon lens, a Gitzo Studex 5 tripod, the new Canon EOS-M camera and an ordnance survey map...and proceeding to spy on everyone for a ten-mile radius. I have these thoughts because we have these customers...

The new camera will have full HD video, touch screen focus and fire, menus similar to the 650D, and ISO from 100-12,800.

The whole outfit looks like it will be a very stylish delight - even if your primary brand loyalty is another system, the camera will be attractive in its own right.

Now how's that for keeping an industrial secret. BTW, after we had all had a play with the camera he put it back into the lining of his cloak and slunk away. No idea when they will arrive or what price they will be, but they are coming.
