Canon EOS M [Review]

by - Monday, March 31, 2014

Hello people!
It's the last day of March! How fast the time passed!
For today's post, i will be reviewing about the new baby that i got recently...

My Canon EOS M.

I got the camera last Wednesday and I'm in love with it on the spot after i unboxed it! Trust me, it's a very beautiful camera and i can't wait to review it. But i have to first let you all know that i'm not a professional photographer or reviewer or what, so i will just review it based on my own style. lol. 

What's inside the box?
It contains:
  • Camera body
  • EF-M 22mm f/2.0 STM Lens
  • EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens
  • Neck Strap
  • Battery Pack
  • Battery Charger
  • USB Interface Cable
  • EOS Digital Solution Disk, Camera Instruction Manual and Software Instruction Manual CD
Ease to use?
For me...YES. It's very convenient because of it's body size. It can fit into my handbag and small pouch which make it easier for me to carry it out to take some photos. If you talk about megapixels, well, it's 18mp, so it's more than enough for me. Some quick settings also available for me to choose from the menu provided which make it easier for me. The whole camera also startup very fast which is a plus point for it.

Modes of the camera?
There are 3 modes in total for this camera, the Auto Mode, Manual Mode and Video Mode.

How is the photo?
As you can see from the photo above, the photo was nice. The color, the brightness, the sharpness and so on were nice for me. It's a jpeg photo though but it's already so nice~ Of course, this camera can take very nice raw photo too!

Continue on taking more photos using my new baby, but i still not used to it yet and my photography skill is just so-so. If you think that i took the photos badly or the photos looks not nice, i'm very sorry. lol.

Pros of the camera?
This camera definitely can take nice photos, especially raw photos, It's very convenient for people to bring it out because you can fit the camera into your bag or pouch easily. And it's not that heavy actually so it will be suitable for girls like me who don't like to hold heavy things. The other thing i like about it is that it actually can connect to external mic. It's a benefit for me when i wanna record a video. The touchscreen also very sensitive which add another point to it. It also can take a very nice photos in dark or 'not-so=light' room! That's what i actually need because i take photos indoor more than outdoor. 

Cons of the camera?
The battery is not enough for me, so i have to get another spare battery just in case i take a lot of photos. It also don't have view finder but i think i not really need it also so it's still consider okay for me. The other cons of it is that the screen is not flip-able, that means i cannot take selca easily by using this camera. However it's okay, because i still have my phone. The flash of the camera is not built-in, but it's included in the box together with the camera, just you have to put it on if you wanna use flash.

I'm happy with it, I'm in love with it! It's a good camera and it's more than enough for me. The price of the camera also quite reasonable and it really worth the money. Everything about the camera is fine for me, i have no problem with it just if the battery life can extend a bit, it will be perfect.

That's all for my review. It's my first time review a camera and it's all based on my own thoughts after using it for few days. I hope you like it. ^^
