Arriving late to the party, but looking fashionable nonetheless, the Canon EOS M camera is the latest competitor to join the mirrorless, interchangeable lens market. The pint-sized camera has the capabilities of a DSLR, minus the bulk and weighty body.

Although professionals won't be trading in their full-framed bodies and high-speed lens for this pocket-sized camera, the compact profile does appeal to traveling consumer markets. Canon was one of the only major manufacturers not offering a mirrorless model in its line-up. Despite its late entry, the Canon EOS M does appear to have an edge when it comes to video recording. The continuous auto-focus feature from the T4i model has been included, offering budding photographers a seamless and hassle-free recording experience.

With the release of the Canon EOS M, the mirrorless market continues to push the boundaries of this upcoming technology.
