Canon is likely to announce a new camera, maybe mirrorless Canon EOS M2 in November. The information is leaked from an anonymous retailer to Canon Rumors. Earlier, it was being reported that Canon had no plans to announce any new SLR camera by the end of 2013, and it has strengthened the hypothesis of mirrorless EOS M2 arrival. However, the manufacturer hasn’t yet confirmed the rumors and sent out any official invitations to the press.
The second generation model of EOS M will have an 24-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor with a new generation of autofocus, new DIGIC 5 image processor, Removable Electronic Viewfinder (Very high resolution), and 5fps burst shooting. Possibly, it will come with a slightly larger form factor and will be available in more colors.
The first Canon EOS M has failed to achieve the expected success due to several disadvantages compared to competing systems with interchangeable lenses, which lacks viewfinder and built-in flash, and has slow autofocus. This time, Canon should have developed an upgraded product in terms of hardware than its predecessor, to be put on sale at a much lower price.
“Canon better not wait till 2014 to introduce the M2 or they will be lost. All the other mirrorless players will be updated this month, and Canon better show their cards this month or November at the latest if they want any hope of keeping the M series alive.” A Canon lover noted on a forum.
Few months ago, a short ad of EOS M2 was leaked since then rumors have been floating over the web, but now it seems that the new Canon EOS M2 is really coming. However, breaking the streak of product launch, for the first time, Canon would be launching any product in November. We will keep you up-to-date as we learn more.
