I have been looking to add to my camera gear for a good while now. Having used my simple Canon Legria (something) as my one and only video camera, I wanted to add one more. This time, I wanted a camera that offered the ability of an external microphone. Of all the endless cameras I have looked at, only the high-end video cameras and some semi-high-end DSLR’s offered this. Stopped by one of my regular shops today, and I came across the Canon (I’m a huge canon fan) EOS M.

Here’s a picture, it’s a mix of a compact and a DSLR. Looking over the specs I was delighted to see it supported an external microphone. I wasn’t prepared to shell out for a new DSLR (I’m happy with the one I have), this seemed far more economic and better for my use.

The store had two external microphones available one was 3x the other though, so I looked at the cheaper one.

This is the one, and it sure looks small and easy to work with.

Now, only thing is to charge it up and take it for a spin. I have a project in mind, that’s small and easy, and should give me the opportunity to test my gear. Not feeling well today, but there’s always tomorrow!
