There is a new toy in town, the Canon EOS M. It is their first interchangeable-lens compact system camera, which means it is as small as a normal digital camera, but able to capture super high-quality images that are even better than my – now old – DSLR. It comes with two different lenses and has these fun effects like ‘grainy black and white’, ‘fish-eye’ and ‘toy camera’, that I literally can not wait to play around with. Bye bye Instagram?

I have been wanting to get a good but small camera for ages… It just makes it easy to take anywhere and capture everything that I want on the go.


Leave yours

  1. I have been waiting for the camera to be available since summer! Would love to hear more about your opinions on it!

  2. I have the sony of these hybrid cameras (the Nex-5) and really didnt like it. Let us know if this one is good!

  3. Personally I found it very annoying that it has a separate flash.. Although it makes beautiful pictures!

    1. @Carlijn: I can see where you’re coming from, but I barely ever use flash.

  4. Don’t think it will replace Instagram, but it is surely practical. x

  5. Can’t wait to see some photos taken with this camera. It sounds great !

  6. This is great for musicvenues and festivals! Have been waiting for something like this for ages!

  7. Would love to hear your reviews and how best to use it, like what settings, which lens you find the best, what’s it like on automatic or manual etc.

  8. Nice! Ik ben ook nog op zoek naar een compacte camera want mijn nikon is toch te zwaar om overal mee naar toe te nemen. Ik ben benieuwd naar de fotos!

  9. so curious to see some pics from this camera…having a small but good one to carry around all the time is my idea for too long now..this may be the good one!!


  10. Are you going to make some pictures for us? Would love to see them! :)

    1. @Lisa: Of course! The next few posts will say when the pictures are taken with the new Canon EOS M.

  11. Nice, ik ben erg benieuwd naar wat foto’s!

  12. Ziet er goed uit!, mooi compact canon is altijd wel goed dus ben benieuwd naar de fotos :D!

  13. I’m down for this!! I need to get a new camera so badly!

  14. wow,it looks great! i bet it works amazing!

  15. Wow that camera looks good! Can’t wait for the pictures taken with it:)

  16. Looks great! Can’t wait to see the pictures you will take with it.

  17. Tof, ik ben superbenieuwd naar het resultaat! Ben stiekem altijd een beetje sceptisch tov ‘nog beter dan DSLR camera’s’, omdat velen dat pretenderen, maar ik nog nooit eentje heb gezien die ik ook werkelijk zou inruilen voor mijn DSRL, maar ik heb hier al goede verhalen over gehoord.. kan niet wachten op je foto’s! :)


  18. Ben benieuwd naar de foto’s ermee. Heel gaaf! xx

  19. Omg! Indeed!!! DSLRs are amazing but you need a suitcase to carry it around! This is magic!!!

  20. Wauw wat een mooie camera! Maar 1050 euro voor een compact camera vind ik wel erg veel..

  21. I have a similar type of rig: a panasonic GF1 with Voigtlander Cosina lenses. I love it, but lust after a bigger sensor. So far, a fast lens is helpful, can take nice photos in the dark handheld. I hope you love this. It has a lovely shape.

  22. Een compacte camera is echt super handig. Ik heb zelf de Olympus Pen en ik ben er zeer tevreden over.
    Je kan hem inderdaad makkelijk overal mee naartoe nemen en het is niet zwaar.
    Ik ben benieuwd wat voor foto’s deze canon maakt en hoe hij je bevalt!

  23. wowww great! Are you going to sell the old one???:)

  24. This is pointless. These things are called SYSTEMS-that means you’ll have two or three or four lenses, a flash, triggers..and there you go dragging a bag or backpack that weighs 5 kilos, same as a DSLR, and regarding the quality of the pictures, there’s simply no comparison between a DSLR and this mutant. This camera is ugly, ergonomy is nonexistent, the sensor is too big for its class. And instead of giving the bayonette to the perfectly balanced G1X, they give it to this crap.I can’t imagine pairing this tiny camera with a, say, 70-200 2.8. I’m a 12 year Canon user, currently using a 5D mark II with a variety of L lenses, but this is a very wrong move by Canon.

  25. heeeel ver terug in de tijd, maar ik sta op het punt een nieuwe camera te kopen en deze staat op dit moment op nr 1.
    1 nadeel is alleen dat ik in veel reviews lees dat hij bij bewegend beeld slecht is? en ik vroeg me af wat jouw ervaringen daarmee zijn aangezien je hem toch best vaak meeneemt bij streetstyle foto’s en catwalk shows?
    ik hoop dat je dit nog leest haha


  26. I know this is an old post, but could you tell us which camera(s) you use on a regular basis to make photos for the blog? Or which cameras you’d really recommend for bloggers just starting out. Thanks!

      No worries! I usually (almost always) use a Canon 5d Mark 3 with a 85mm 1.2f lens. It’s a really expensive body and lens, but apart from being a blogger I also do quite some photography (editorials, campaigns) on the side, so for me it was worth the investment. For smaller, more affordable cameras I am unfortunately not familiar enough with them to know… I am not sure if this is of any help.
