Similar to its predecessor, the Canon EOS M, the EOS M2 uses the Canon EF-M lens mount, an 18 megapixel APS-C sensor and a DIGIC 5 image processor.[1][2] The newer EOS M2 adds phase detection autofocus for improved autofocus speed, plus integrated Wi-Fi with support for wireless image transfer and remote control via a smartphone app.[1][2] The camera has a 3-inch touchscreen with support for multi-touch gestures such as pinch to zoom, swiping and tapping.[citation needed]

The camera does not include a built-in flash or electronic viewfinder,[2][4] but does support external Canon Speedlite external flashes via a hot shoe.[1][5] The EOS M2 was offered in certain markets as a kit including a Speedlite 90 EX flash.[1] The camera can also accept Canon EF and EF-S lenses with an additional mount adapter.[5] The camera is capable of supporting Standard Definition video at 30fps or 25fps, 720p HD video at 60fps or 50fps, and 1080p Full HD video at 30fps, 24fps or 25fps.[5]


The EOS M2 was announced in Japan in December 2013 with a suggested retail price of ¥64800 for the body only, or ¥84800 for a kit including the EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens and Speedlite 90 EX flash.[1]

Canon confirmed at the camera's launch that it had no plans to market the camera in Europe or North America.[1]
