Misc. notes Canon's first mirrorless camera uses the new EF-M mount. Backward compatibility with EF and EF-S lenses requires a $200 adapter. There is neither a built-in flash nor an included external flash. Uses its 3-inch touchscreen LCD for nearly every function. Comes with the new F2.0, 22 mm STM pancake lens. Available in black and white.
