Canon takes a big step forward in the mirrorless camera market with the EOS M3, but it still lags behind the competition.

  • +

    Sturdy, compact body. Tilting rear touch display. In-body flash. Wi-Fi with NFC. Mounts Canon SLR lenses via adapter.

  • -

    EVF is an expensive add-on. Slow autofocus. Limited shooting buffer. Cramped controls.

At a time when many new cameras represent very minor updates over their predecessors, it's refreshing to discover just how much Canon has improved on the EOS M3. Pick it up and you'll notice the chunkier and more comfortable grip straightaway.

  • +

    Good quality images and low noise., Tilting touchscreen., Wifi with NFC for sharing and remote control., Mic input and confident focusing for movies.

  • -

    No built-in viewfinder., Servo AF slows burst shooting down., Poor battery life. Little warning before expiry., Very limited selection of native EF-M lenses., No panorama or timelapse facility built-in.

There’s no denying that the EOS M3 is a huge improvement on the original EOS M1 . To begin with it’s compact and impressively well made, with a control layout that makes it a pleasure to use.

  • +

    Excellent design and user interface; Pleasing image quality; Huge improvement on predecessor

  • -

    Focusing speed and continuous shooting still behind competition; Lacking built-in viewfinder; Poor kits lens

The Canon EOS M3 brings a compact form-factor into the interchangeable lens category, along with decent daylight imaging. However, its low-light performance is below par, it has a limited dynamic range, renders high noise in ISO settings of 1000 and above, and is too heavy to justify itself as the...

  • +

    Compact size, Good image stabilisation, Easy to use, Good touchscreen, Easy WiFi setup and connect

  • -

    Slow focussing, Below-par low light performance, Limited dynamic range, Lacklustre build, Weighs heavier than comparison

16 July 2015

The Canon EOS M3 offers dSLR-quality photos and a nice design, but its feature set is average, performance is sluggish and its price relatively high, at least in the US and the UK.

  • +

    A very well-designed mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera, the EOS M3 offers high-quality photos.

  • -

    It's slow, with a relatively limited feature set for the price.

The Canon EOS M3 offers good image quality in a compact design, but there are better mirrorless cameras in this price range.

Sadly for Canon, the debut of the first-generation Canon EOS M was met with a rather ho-hum response, at least here in the US. Limited lens selection and less-than-stellar AF performance were major factors, as was the more established success of competing manufacturers in the mirrorless space.

With its focus on digital SLRs, Canon has been slower than its rivals in coming up with a solid mirrorless camera to fill a growing gap in the market. There’s a reason – Canon has produced more than 110 million interchangeable EF Lenses used with its EOS DSLR cameras.

29 May 2015

Canon is probably the most reluctant maker of mirrorless cameras. Its first mirrorless interchangeable lens model was launched in October 2012, several years after Olympus and Sony. The EOS M fared so poorly that its successor, EOS M2, never reached our shores.Now, the new EOS M3 is here.

I bought this EOS M3 and the 11-22mm lens for my recent trip to Tibet and China. Took over 2500 pictures. I did not want to take my older Canon DSLR as it would be too heavy so this size was almost perfect for the trip. With the 11-22 mm lens, it was great for those landscape views.

  • +

    Small size, light weight with the familiar controls of a Canon DSLR.

  • -

    Battery is too small to last for a whole day of shooting. Definitely needs an extra battery. The controls can be slightly bigger or raised higher for better tactile feedback. Taking a still while shooting movie interrupts the movie sequence.

With this camera, you have to wonder-less... About whether or not to take it with you because it's too big/heavy, you have to wonder-less about exposure (good metering), wonder less about light (aps-c sensor, IE big for a small camera) you have to wonder less about price (cheap, especially on sale...

This was a Great product works well for Vlogging and short films, definitely reccomend!

  • +

    Easy to Use, Efficient, Great on focusing!

  • -

    takes a few seconds to focus on something

16 July 2015

Great image quality, however no view finder was a show-stopper for me. I'm not going to be forced to take photos at "arms length" simply because Canon can't figure out how to build in a view finder. Maybe the M4 will be when they get it right (for me) but for now, I'm returning it.

25 March 2016

I've owned Canon equipment since my first F-1 in 1973. I currently have a T2i and a 5D2 along with 7 L series zooms and assorted other Canon glass. I did't like the M at all. I wanted a lighter travel camera than what I currently owned. I bought the M3 18-55 kit, lens adapter an EVF.

Yes M3 is the best Canon mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, but compared to everything else on the market? Its a sad sad slow, very limited overpriced camera. Every manufactured: Sony, Olympus, Fuji, Panasonic, even Samsung has made dozens of fast, accurate, feature rich mirrorless cameras,...
