Lightweight, compact and nimble mirrorless camera

The successor ” EOS Kiss M2 ” has appeared in the popular mirrorless camera ” EOS Kiss M ” due to the tradition of the Kiss brand that has been cultivated for many years and the high basic performance that surpasses that of entry-level cameras. Compared to the original “EOS Kiss M,” the size and weight of the exterior are almost the same. It’s a twin-like camera with the same layout around the buttons.

You can fully enjoy shooting – Point and shoot

Shooting cluster amaryllis while incorporating front bokeh using a telephoto lens. I aimed to make the in-focus part stand out from the background. One of the strengths of a digital single-lens camera is that you can enjoy shooting focusing on bokeh expression.

It is equipped with a video engine DIGIC 8, 24.1 million pixels APS-C size CMOS sensor. The image quality part follows the specifications of the original “EOS Kiss M,” which has been well-established.

Lightweight and compact size that   can carry around at any time

The nice thing about the Kiss M2 is that it has a small body size but is equipped with an EVF that allows you to see it firmly. The grip is also easy to grip and light, so it is a camera that you will want to carry around every day.

Improved AF function

You can’t tell just by looking at the specs. Still, the Eye AF function has evolved significantly. You can now use servo AF even with spot 1-point AF and AI focus that automatically switches between one-shot AF and servo AF during scene intelligent auto. With AF installed, especially around AF has been strengthened.

Capture the moment you aim with high-speed continuous shooting of 7.4 frames per second

Like the original “EOS Kiss M,” servo AF enables high-speed continuous shooting at 7.4 frames per second. One-shot AF enables high-speed continuous shooting at ten frames per second. I tried to follow the moment of jumping off a false killer whale with servo AF, but I was able to catch the moment when the spray was flying, following the focus firmly.

You can easily take high-level children’s photos.

When shooting children most concerned about the layer using this model, it is easy to take high-level children’s photos by combining pupil AF, servo AF, high-speed continuous shooting, and a wide range-finding area. In a scene where a child runs from a distance, even if it is framed small, you can see that the EVF or LCD monitor is catching your eyes firmly so that you can feel at ease.

Catch eyes with high accuracy even when shooting at full body size

In the first “EOS Kiss M,” the pupil AF was finally usable with a bust-up, but in the “EOS Kiss M2”, the pupil can be detected even when shooting the whole body. It is encouraging to use Eye AF reliably with Servo AF that captures movement even with a pulling composition like this picture.

The ranging area expands depending on the lens used

The area that can measure differs depending on the lens. With the “EF-M55-200mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM”, “EF-M18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM”, and “EF-M28mm F3.5 Macro IS STM”,   can obtain a wider range of up to 143 points. High-precision AF that makes the best use of the AF points is possible.

The appearance is the same as the first generation, but the contents have greatly evolved.

Even with the video function. new functions such as taking vertical videos optimized for viewing on smart devices. and live distribution to YouTube are installed, and you can enjoy it in line with the times. Although the appearance does not change, the “EOS Kiss M2”, and Canon EOS 4000D Review (vs 2000D) whose contents have greatly evolved, seems to open up a new world of photography by becoming more resistant to movement.

Even if you put it on the ” Tripod Grip HG-100TBR “, Point and shoot which is easy to use when shooting movies or taking sallies, the camera is light is a sense of stability. You can store the remote control in the grip part, use it to press the shutter, and use it as a mini tripod by opening the grip part.
