Freedom of expression
Powerful yet portable. Creative and convenient. The EOS M3 delivers the performance of a DSLR and the portability of a compact camera. Enjoy great photography wherever you are.

Capture stunning detail
Capture photos and movies that are packed with detail, colour and atmosphere - even in low-light conditions - thanks to an APS-C sized 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and ISO up to 12,800 (expandable to 25,600).

Portable DSLR power
With a compact, lightweight and stylish body that’s a pleasure to carry, the EOS M3 puts all the power of a DSLR, complete with interchangeable lenses, right by your side.

User-friendly touch interface
Use the award-winning ergonomic interface with intuitive touch screen (1,040k sRGB dots) to focus and shoot with a single tap, navigate menus and view images with ease. The screen tilts up through 180˚ (ideal for selfies) and down by 45˚ for high-angle shooting.

Be spontaneous. Enjoy fast, responsive focusing
React instinctively to the moment and catch fast moving action with ease thanks to continuous full resolution shooting at 4.2 frames-per-second – even when shooting in RAW.

Fast, sharp autofocus
Focus up to 6.1x faster than the original EOS M thanks to advanced Hybrid CMOS AF III. Autofocus locks on quickly and accurately for pin-sharp results with 49 AF points spread out across the frame, covering 80 percent of the frame vertically and 70 per cent horizontally.

Effortless sharing
Sharing your creativity is simple. You can easily transfer images and movies to smartphone, tablets of the Canon Connect Station using Wi-Fi and NFC, for quick uploading to social networks or watching on a big screen TV.

Remote shooting
It’s easy to include yourself in group shots or shoot wildlife photos without disturbance using your smart device as a wireless remote control. You can capture images, change setting and even see what the camera is seeing to capture the perfect shot.

Simple image back up
Back up your precious new images wirelessly to wherever you want in the cloud using Image Sync and synchronise to your personal computer and smartphone.

Creative assist
Unleash your inner artist with Creative Assist, which gives you easy control over camera settings via the touch-screen. You can preview your adjustments in real time, learn how they translate into traditional camera settings and even save and share your favourite settings.

Full manual control
Take full expert level control any time you like with features such as the ergonomically placed Front Dial, an exposure compensation dial and extensive custom functions to suit your shooting style. Shoot in 14-bit RAW for advanced post shot editing.

Expand your system
Change your lens and see the world from a different point of view. Choose from the EF-M lens range or use one of over 70 lenses designed for EOS DSLRs via the Mount Adapter EF-EOS M. Add other optional accessories such as EOS Speedlite flashes, an electronic viewfinder or external microphone.

Shoot movies like you shoot photos
Create superb Full HD (1080p) movies at 30fps in MP4 format with fast, smooth autofocus thanks to the advanced Hybrid CMOS AF III. Touch AF in movies lets you create smooth, cinematic pull-focus effects, and Manual Focus Peaking shows sharp areas of the scene.
