Well, no more. Canon&#39;s pushed out the M2 which is basically what its predecessor should have been from the start.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Same old sensor </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Canon claims that the M2&#39;s autofocus is twice as fast, though it still packs the same APS-C sensor. All this thanks to its new&nbsp;&nbsp;Hybrid CMOS AF II system. Another plus point? WiFi connectivity.</p> <p>Dpreview&#39;s noted that there are other less obvious changes - the camera&#39;s smaller, digital zoom is back, the mode dial had a design tweak and the stereo microphones have been moved to the front of the camera. At press time the camera might only be available in Asia as a spokesperson says there are no plans to launch it in the US or Europe at the present time.&nbsp;</p> <p>As for pricing, it starts at &yen;64800 (&pound;390) for the camera body, &yen;84800 (&pound;505) for the 18-55mm kit, &yen;104800 for the two-lens kit and the three-lens kit will set youback &yen;134800. No word if and when this will come to the UK, but we&#39;ll be sure to keep you posted.</p> <p>[Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.dpreview.com/news/2013/12/03/canon-announces-eos-m2-in-japan">Dpreview</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Canon EOS M2" alt="Canon EOS M2" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Canon%20EOS%20M2%20side.jpg?1386159058" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/canon/canon-doubles-focus-speed-and-adds-wi-fi-new-m2-mirrorless-camera/news#comments Cameras Canon M2 Wed, 04 Dec 2013 11:53:20 +0000 Will Findlater 1429740 at http://www.stuff.tv
