This new EOS M is the camera code named 'PC2279' we have heard about since its certification by the Russian authorities in August 2016.

There will be 6 SKUs: (body only, with EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM, with EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM) x 2 colours.

We’re told that Canon will announced a new EOS M camera in February, ahead of CP+ in Yokohama, Japan which starts on February 23, 2017.

I'm still curious on this.  I would love a smaller "M3 Mark II" camera versus the larger, more expensive and unnecessary for me anyways M5.  My articulating EVF rocks.

ie: DIGIC 7 and DPAF sensor and shove it into the smaller M3 camera body.  Please.

Surprised we haven't heard much of anything if this is coming out in February.

PS .. why haven't we seen any G series styling yet in the M line. I really like the red accent in the Gx series compact cameras

Me too, but I was very disappointed by the M3's tilting screen when I compared it to the M10.

As for the M20, I'd like to have the 80D/M5's 24MP sensor, not the M3's 24MP one. The 80D/M5 sensor has the same resolution, but is so much better at recovering shadows. Is this a possibility for the Mxx series, or will they continue to put lower end sensors in there?

the problem with the M10's is that it doesn't tilt down, but it does allow a smaller profile.

I'd rather the 80D's sensor as well, but the M3's isnt' really that bad.

be glad, if Canon gives M20 the M3 sensor rather than unvhanged M/M2/M10 sensor ... 18 MP one more time .... lol.

knowing Canon i see absolutely no chance for 80D/M5 DPAF sensor in M20. at the very best it will be M3 sensor ... with a lot of crippling and nerfing throughout rest of camera - e.g. most definitely powershot firmware/USer interface.

not necessarily. they did the same thing on the G7 to G5 series bodies, basically the same other than viewfinder.

That is close to what I thought was going to happen, with the exception that I did not think 4K video would make it to the M line this soon.  But I, hopefully, thought this rumor might be an M5 crammed into an M3 form factor.  Basically an M5 with no built in EVF.

But, it is too soon for that.  Canon will let the M5 have its day (year?).  Also, up in the thread they mention this is coming in 2 colors.  That screams M10 replacement.

So my best guess at this point is that we'll be getting an M3 crammed into an M10 form factor.  Still should be a nice entry level camera.

not happening.

seriously .. canon cannot do 4K on anything other than the DIGIC DV's .. not even DIGIC 7 is doing 4K by the looks of it.

4K with a half decent bitrate/compression which would be necessary here is not coming to a canon camera soon

why? I don't know.. but it's most likely hardware.

the current MJPEG method isn't on the same video stream as the 1080p which is why it's not outputted to the HDMI, and also why it's not saved internally with different compression.  the DIGIC simply reads the sensor 60 times a second and saves the JPEG.

also the M3 body is smaller than the 6300 which is a 4K coffee heater.

the M3 came in two colors, the M10 came in three, the M2 came in like 5-6 of them I recall.

also they released the G5 soon after the G3 and the G7 ..

m2 or m10 form factor.

Or M5? I think that form factor is the future of Canon ML

I prefer M3 form factor. It has a better grip.
