The EOS Kiss M, the first compact-system camera to bear the “EOS Kiss” name, which signifies Canon’s entry-level DSLR cameras.

The Canon EOS Kiss M is a compact-system camera that achieves simple, easy to enjoy high-quality image capture, even for first-time camera users. EOS Kiss models have been a driver of the single reflex lens (SLR) market, both film and digital, for a quarter of a century, memorializing countless family memories and moving scenes. With this new model, the EOS Kiss brand has been expanded to include compact-system cameras to meet an even wider range of user needs.

Thanks to the newest DIGIC 8 image processor, the camera realizes enhanced Dual Pixel CMOS AF that achieves high-speed, high-precision autofocus with a maximum of 99 focus points and, when equipped with compatible interchangeable lenses1, the focus area expands2 to a maximum of 143 focus points to achieve fast focusing performance. What’s more, the camera realizes up to approximately 7.4 frames per second (fps) continuous shooting with AF and AE tracking, and up to approximately 10 fps high-speed continuous shooting with fixed AF.

Equipped with the DIGIC 8 image processor and an approximately 24.1 million effective pixel3 APS-C size CMOS sensor, the EOS Kiss M makes possible easy-to-enjoy high-image-quality still image and video shooting. The camera achieves improved performance for Canon’s Auto Lighting Optimizer function, which automatically adjusts brightness and contrast to create a natural impression. The camera also makes possible high-resolution 4K video shooting4.

The Canon EOS Kiss M features a vari-angle LCD touchscreen, which makes possible Live View shooting from a variety of angles, and a high-resolution built-in EVF that makes possible comfortable viewfinder shooting. What’s more, in addition to a Creative Assist function, which can be easily activated from auto mode, the camera features a Visual Guide aimed at first-time users that coaches them towards easily achieving their desired visual expression.
