24.2 MP APS-C SENSOR
The EOS M3’s 24.2 Megapixel APS-C Canon CMOS sensor has seamless microlenses to help provide images and movies with exquisite detail, color and quality. Pixels outfitted with seamless microlenses magnifies the sensor area, enabling each pixel to be more sensitive to light and produce less digital noise making them suitable for capturing scenes in low light. Larger pixels also have the power to yield a broader dynamic range, while the APS-C sensor size enables creative depth-of-field for a professional-looking Bokeh.
Hybrid CMOS AF III
Hybrid CMOS AF technology allows users to feel EOS DSLR-like autofocus speeds minus the bulk of a bigger camera. Hybrid CMOS AF III enables smooth focus transition and continuous focusing when filming video while EOS M3 supports Movie Servo AF that’s near-silent with compatible STM lenses.
Hybrid CMOS AF III allows super-fast focusing for stills shooting, about 6.1x faster than the first EOS M, while 49 AF points provide a wide AF point coverage for users searching for additional framing options when using autofocus. Small AF points and higher density also advances the camera’s capacity to accurately lock on to the right subject, enabling the user to completely make use of the larger sensor to produce beautiful pictures with the subject isolated.
DIGIC 6 Processing
DIGIC 6 processor of Canon works in association with the 24.2 Megapixel sensors to enable users to shoot in challenging lighting conditions and still capture high-quality results. Its extra processing power enables pictures to be captured and processed faster than ever with an outstanding 0.07 sec shutter lag. Images in JPEG format are processed by DIGIC 6 produce up to 20 percent more detail and can be filmed in a full resolution spontaneously up to 4.2 fps in creative (P, M, Av and Tv) modes for up to 1000 frames.
