In conjunction with the sensor, the processor helps in the capture of highly-detailed images at various movie compressions, mp4 included, at reduced noise levels and facilitates the capture of high-quality movies at high ISOs.

You can connect your tablet or smartphone to the EOS M3 camera if you have installed the Canon Camera Connect app for remote shooting and you can also print after connecting directly to printers that are IP-compatible. By touching the NFC icon on the camera to the device, you can connect the EOS M3 directly to Android devices that are NFC compliant using the built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) capability feature. Change camera settings and see the effects take place with the camera’s Creative Assist feature.

The pros include its exemplary user interface as well as design and top notch quality of the images.

Cons would have to be the lack of a built-in viewfinder, the poor kits lens and it is still falling behind in terms of continuous shooting and focusing speed compared to its competitors.
