Canon EOS M vs Canon EOS 650D comparison: conclusion

Comparing these two cameras is very much of a tale of swings and roundabouts. What you gain on one, you may feel that you lose on the other.

If you’re on the verge of buying a camera and you can’t wait until October to get your hands on one, then it may be a safe bet to plump for the 650D now.

Also, if you’re a fan of viewfinders, traditional buttons and handling and don’t want to add the extra expense of a mount adapter for any existing optics you’ve got, then the 650D may seem like a wiser choice.

However, if you’re looking for something small that won’t take up too much room in a bag, but you have the option to add your own/extra lenses if you require, then the EOS M is a good choice.

It’s also worth bearing in mind what you want to do with your photography, if you’re happy to leave the camera in Auto mode and don’t need (very) quick access to manual settings, then the M may be ideal.

However, if you want to learn more about the technical details of photography, and want all the benefits of a traditional DSLR, then the 650D may be a better bet.
