The first Canon EOS M3 photo has been leaked on the web ahead of its official announcement event, which will take place on February 6.
The beginning of 2015 has been a very exciting year for digital imaging fans. A lot of cameras and lenses have been unveiled and more are expected to show up before the start of the CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2015.
Among these products we can find the Canon EOS M2 replacement, which will be called EOS M3. An insider has revealed that the mirrorless camera will be announced on February 6 along with the 5Ds, 5Ds R, and 750D DSLR cameras.
First Canon EOS M3 photo leaked, reveals some important design changes
The leaked Canon EOS M3 photo reveals some important changes when compared to its predecessors, the EOS M2 and EOS M.
The new model has two extra dials on its top, which have been added next to the shutter button. Moreover, the grip is now bigger and it appears that the camera will be more comfortable to hold and to use.
These changes are definitely aimed to please professional photographers and to show that the company means business in the mirrorless camera segment.
The leaked image shows the EOS M3 in a white color. The EOS M has been released in four colors, that is white, black, red, and silver.
Overall, the EOS M3 looks bigger than its forerunners, but appearances can be deceiving. Only one image has been leaked, so we should not jump to conclusions for the time being.
Canon EOS M3 specs round-up
On a previous occasion, an unnamed source has revealed that the Canon EOS M3 specs list will include a new 24.2-megapixel APS-C-sized CMOS image sensor with Dual Pixel CMOS AF III technology.
The mirrorless camera will employ an ISO sensitivity range between 100 and 12,800. It will come with multiple auto shooting modes and a continuous shooting mode of up to 7fps.
The source has confirmed that NFC technology will be built-in, but there are no words whether WiFi is present or not.
An optional electronic viewfinder for the EOS M3 will be unveiled, too, in order to allow photographers to frame their photos and videos in a better way.
As stated above, the EOS M3 and many other Canon products will be announced on Friday, February 6. Stay tuned for the official event!
