Product Features in Detail
Capture stunning detail
Capture photos and movies that are packed with detail, colour and atmosphere - even in low-light conditions - thanks to an APS-C sized 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and ISO up to 12,800 (expandable to 25,600).
Portable DSLR power
With a compact, lightweight and stylish body that’s a pleasure to carry, the EOS M3 puts all the power of a DSLR, complete with interchangeable lenses, right by your side.
User-friendly touch interface
Use the award-winning ergonomic interface with intuitive touch screen (1,040k sRGB dots) to focus and shoot with a single tap, navigate menus and view images with ease. The screen tilts up through 180˚ (ideal for selfies) and down by 45˚ for high-angle shooting.
Be spontaneous. Enjoy fast, responsive focusing
React instinctively to the moment and catch fast moving action with ease thanks to continuous full resolution shooting at 4.2 frames-per-second – even when shooting in RAW.
Fast, sharp autofocus
Focus up to 6.1x faster than the original EOS M thanks to advanced Hybrid CMOS AF III. Autofocus locks on quickly and accurately for pin-sharp results with 49 AF points spread out across the frame, covering 80 percent of the frame vertically and 70 per cent horizontally.
Sharing your creativity is simple. You can easily transfer images and movies to smartphones, tablets or the Canon Connect Station using Wi-Fi and NFC, for quick uploading to social networks or watching on a big screen TV.
It’s easy to include yourself in group shots or shoot wildlife photos without disturbance using your smart device as a wireless remote control. You can capture images, change settings and even see what the camera is seeing to capture the perfect shot.
Simple image back up
Back up your precious new images wirelessly to wherever you want in the cloud using Image Sync and synchronise to your personal computer and smartphone.
Unleash your inner artist with Creative Assist, which gives you easy control over camera settings via the touch-screen. You can preview your adjustments in real time, learn how they translate into traditional camera settings and even save and share your favourite settings.
Full manual control
Take full expert level control any time you like with features such as the ergonomically placed Front Dial, an exposure compensation dial and extensive custom functions to suit your shooting style. Shoot in 14-bit RAW for advanced post shot editing.
Expand your system
Change your lens and see the world from a different point of view. Choose from the EF-M lens range or use one of over 70 lenses designed for EOS DSLRs via the Mount Adapter EF-EOS M. Add other optional accessories such as EOS Speedlite flashes, an electronic viewfinder or external microphone.
Shoot movies like you shoot photos
Create superb Full HD (1080p) movies at 30fps in MP4 format with fast, smooth autofocus thanks to the advanced Hybrid CMOS AF III. Touch AF in movies lets you create smooth, cinematic pull-focus effects, and Manual Focus Peaking shows sharp areas of the scene.
Shoot stunningly creative movies as easily as stills with manual control over shutter speed, aperture and ISO. Create scenes with a shallow depth of field using wide aperture settings or change shutter speed while filming to control the image flow.
Record high quality soundtracks via the camera’s 3.5mm external microphone socket, which is compatible with a wide range of external microphones. Sound from the microphone can be controlled manually from the camera.
