Canon EOS M vs T4i / 650D: Flash
There’s also no built-in flash on the Canon EOS M (the Rebel T4i, like all entry-level Canon EOS DSLRs, has a pop-up flash), but it does have a hotshoe that is compatible with all Canon’s current flashguns.
There’s even a new Speedlite 90EX flashgun that is very compact and specifically designed to complement the M, and in the UK this is included in the box with the camera and EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM kit lens.
In addition to the Picture Style options that we see with Canon DSLRs and that tailor the colour of JPEG files to suit a particular subject (Landscape, Portrait etc), the Canon EOS M has a collection of Creative Effects that give JPEG images a particular look as they are captured.
Similar effects are possible with the Canon T4i, but they can only be applied post-capture. It’s worth noting here that although the
Canon Picture Style options can be used whatever the file format you choose to store images, the Creative Effects options can only be selected when the EOS M is set to shoot JPEGs, and not raw files.
