Canon has officially introduced a new color option for the EOS M camera, called Bay Blue, which will become available on the market as of April 25.
Canon has joined the mirrorless camera segment in June 2012, courtesy of the EOS M. A successor for this shooter has been rumored in the past, but so far the “M” remained the single such camera from the Japanese manufacturer.
Canon EOS M Bay Blue edition officially announced
Instead of launching a new mirrorless camera, Canon has decided to unveil a new version of the original one. As a result, the Canon EOS M Bay Blue has been scheduled for an April 25 release date.
The Bay Blue version does not bring any new features to the market, as the device has the same specifications list. Nevertheless, Canon Japan took the liberty of introducing the fifth color option for the camera, after White, Black, Red, and Gray.
A new color may offer a breath of fresh air, albeit EOS M fans are still waiting for new gear from the Japanese company.
Same specs, different color
Canon EOS M features a 3-inch 1,040K-dot LCD touchscreen with multitouch support, DIGIC 5 image processor, 18-megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor, continuous shooting mode of up to 3.4 frames per second, SD / SDHC / SDXC card support, full HD 1080p video recording at 30 frames per second, and a shutter speed between 1/4000 and 30 seconds.
Other notable specs of the apparatus include a Hybrid CMOS autofocus technology for both stills and motion pictures, and an ISO range between 100 and 12,800, though the sensitivity can be easily extended up to 25,600 with built-in settings.
Currently, the Canon EOS M supports a pair of lenses, such as the EF-M 18-5mm and EF-M 22mm. The Bay Blue edition will mainly be sold with the 22mm f/2 STM prime lens, but the pricing remains unknown for now.
Price details will be revealed soon
For the time being, the usual Canon EOS M mirrorless camera is available at Amazon for $569, bundled with the aforementioned optic. However, the Bay Blue version is not listed anywhere.
Photographers who appreciate the new color can report back in exactly two week’s time, in order to buy the Bay Blue version of the Canon EOS M.
One thing worth reminding is that the mirrorless camera will also support EF and EF-S lens mounts with the help of a lens adapter.
