The Canon M3 is an advanced interchangeable lens camera aimed at enthusiast and beginner photographers. As it’s a mirrorless, the Canon M3 offers DSLR-like quality in a compact form factor. It also gives photographers the chance to change lenses, with a range of over 80 Canon EF-M mount lenses available for it. Additionally, Canon’s extensive family of EOS lenses can also be made compatible with the Canon M3 via the EF-EOS M adapter.
Photographing fast-moving subjects such as birds and other wildlife is handled well by the Canon M3’s snappy 49-point hybrid CMOS AF system, which is 6x faster than its predecessor. Harnessing the power of Canon’s DIGIC 6 processor, the Canon M3 is capable of capturing full resolution RAW images at 4.2 fps for continuous burst mode shooting. The combination of Canon’s DIGIC 6 processor, advanced 24.2-megapixel sensor and hybrid CMOS AF helps the Canon M3 to deliver performance and image quality that is comparable to the Canon EOS 750D DSLR.
