Canon Announces the new Canon EOS M2

Canon Inc and Canon Japan recently announced the new Canon EOS M2 to the Japanese market, featuring significantly improved AF performance. The Canon EOS M2 inherits from her predecessor, the Canon EOS M that was released in September 2012. Compared with its predecessor,1 the new EOS M2 realizes dramatically improved autofocusing performance and newly incorporates built-in Wi-Fi while achieving a body that is approximately 8% smaller in volume.

Employing Hybrid CMOS AF II, the M2 combines high-precision contrast AF and high-speed phase-detection AF for high-performance autofocusing across approximately 80% of the width and height of the sensor’s imaging surface. Compared with the EOS M, the technology makes possible AF across a wider imaging area than that offered by the earlier EOS M and is approximately 2.3 times2 faster, letting users realize improved focusing performance and compose shots with greater flexibility while enabling improved tracking response when shooting a moving subject.

 Equipped with an approximately 18-megapixel APS-C-size CMOS sensor and Canon’s DIGIC 5 image processor, the EOS M2 achieves a high level of image quality that only a large sensor can make possible while delivering a maximum continuous shooting speed of 4.6 frames per second. Additionally, offering a maximum standard ISO of 12800 (expandable to ISO 25600), the camera lets users capture images with reduced noise even in low-light conditions.
