The Canon "mirrorless"

Glad they've entered the market. Though it looks like it came out of a blister pack at Wal-mart.

Performance aside, I always hated the look and size of the Canon G series. This just continues that trend.

Except...without the manual controls or viewfinder. What is that grip all about? It looks like an atavistic growth of some sort.

A gill remnant. An absorbed twin. "Mrs. Canon, though we recognize that you wish to bond with your newborn, we strongly recommend you allow us to remove that."

"And its sunken chevron-shaped shutter button enclosure?"

"I'm afraid there's nothing we can do about that."

"But doctor...why? How did this happen?"

"I'm sorry, Mrs. Canon--your child has been in utero for four years. It has become...squished"

I don't really care how it looks. I'm mainly interested in how it performs and its image quality but that remains to be seen.

I saw the little EVIL "mirrorless" Nikon in a blisterpack at a "Dollar" store. Perhaps Canon is picking this market to try to get on the same wire rack.

judging by the size of the hotshoe it appears to be a very small camera, perhaps even s90 size (width and height, probably not depth). i'm curious to see how big/small the lenses will be.

Of all the letters available for identifying a lens mount...they had to go with M.

i'm noticing it has a dial around the shutter button, and a dial (ring) on the back like on the S models. so manual handling might not be that bad, though it's not as nice as having the ISO and exp comp dials on the G series.

it's certainly not a looker, though, lol.

Ahhh, performance and IQ will be fine, just like every other current production APS-C camera on planet earth. BUT JUST LOOK AT IT. LOOK AT IT! DO YOU WANT TO REWARD THE MONSTERS WHO CREATED IT

I don't see any difference between this and the Olympus OM-D that everyone seems to get wet dreams over. Both are ugly. So what??

I'm not a big fan of the product design on this thing neither. :/

KISS is the word. And I wish Canon got it.

I'm sure it will have a great personality. Maybe its sister will take it to the prom.

FWIW, Field was hotter than Welch, all the way. And of course I am just trolling, I am mildly drunk and don't give a rat's arse. Can't you tell by my comma-splicing?

Could they have made its appearance any more utilitarian I wonder?

I hope it's a good camera because it sure won't sell on it's looks!


And stompyg ... thanks!

There's a shot of the rear of this gadget here:
http://www.engadget.com/2012/07/20/c...possible-leak/

It looks like there's clickwheels you can use with your thumb and index finger like on the non-Rebel dslrs. I like that. My curiosity is piqued.

pluses
- 35mm-e f/2 pancake at intro.
- aps-c sensor.
- clean, modern design. vaguely contax t-series with the beveled edge.
- mode dial coaxial with the shutter button.
- no port for a stinkin' accessory EVF.
- frankenstein neck bolts for strap lugs. awesome.
- cool name. admit it.

minuses
- 18-55mm kit lens is not collapsible. show a little more effort, canon.
- no port for a stinkin' accessory EVF, not that i care.

wait and see
- phase-detect autofocus on sensor.
- built-in image stabilization (not likely).
- higher end model with sony nex-7 style EVF position, or faux-prism.
- where have i seen that grip before?
- 'q' = quick menu?

Okay so it's pretty obvious their first entry to the market is a complete consumer device. HOWEVER, I kind of like it. It looks tiny, It looks very very simple, I love the top on/off dial and the diamond pattern 'focus ring'.

But eh....should bring a digital canonet to the market - nex-7 style but with canon lenses, UI, sensor, and design.

Either way, the ef-M lenses obviously don't have aperture rings, so as far as I'm concerned fujifilm has canon licked in the mirrorless department.
