With a very nice touch screen, a well-designed body, and excellent photo quality
While it provides one of the best touch-screen experiences in its class and the compact body is quite comfortable to shoot with, the Canon EOS M's disappointing performance and blah feature set make it less attractive than competitors.
Touch-screen interface, Full 1080p HD Movie mode
In conclusion it is the picture quality that counts however, and we were pleasantly surprised and impressed with the output from the EOS M. If you want EOS quality, yet from a smaller form factor, whilst not perfect in every single regard (and which "first attempt" ever is?), this camera can deliver.
Small size, High-build quality
Despite being very late to the CSC market, Canon has managed to produce a camera that isn't too far off the pace in many respects, and it should give the Nikon J2 a serious run for its money.
Thanks to the combination of the 18MP APS-C format CMOS sensor, DIGIC 5 processor and the high-quality EF-M 18-55mm kits lens, the M is capable of producing superb quality images that even outperform those taken on the Canon 650D EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II mounted.
Responsive touchscreen interface
The Canon EOS M is one of the most capable and easy to use CSCs we've tested. It's also a very well specified camera, with plenty to keep both entry-level and more experienced users happy. Image quality is some of the best we've yet seen in a CSC and certainly a match for many DSLRs. What really sets the EOS M apart from its rivals though is the fantastically responsive touchscreen interface, which is by some distance the best in its class.
Image quality is DSLR-matching
The Canon EOS M delivers on the image quality front, but is otherwise ultimately a let down. It's late to the compact system camera game and fails to offer anything truly special. It's expensive, autofocus is a step behind its competitors, it's not possible to add an electronic viewfinder, there's no built-in flash and the new EF-M lens mount only offers two current lenses. No word of a future lenses map as yet either.
Theoretically better image quality
Though it isn't immediately obvious that this is a touch screen model until you discover that a flick of finger and thumb will enlarge a portion of an image as on your phone, the sense here is that Canon, rather than deliver a breakthrough product has competently delivered enough to get it in the game, with real innovation to follow.
Very easy to use for beginner photographers
Looking for SLR-like image quality in a compact body? The EOS M offers the best of both worlds, with the added benefit of interchangeable lenses. However, its sluggish autofocus may deter point-and-shoot upgraders.
Suffice to say, the EOS M had so much potential to disrupt the ILC market. Unfortunately, it doesn't stand out enough for us to wholeheartedly recommend it over other, more nippy models in its class.
Delivers razor sharp pics
If we've an overriding sense that comes from using the 18 megapixel EOS M it is that Canon has delivered a well-built, competent product without it being one that is especially breakthrough or overtly exciting.
There's no built in Wi-Fi, nor is there news that Canon is developing its own range of 'apps' with which to customise the camera or its output, for example.
I loaded brand new batteries into the camera, turned it on, completed the set up screens (date/language options), took fewer than six photos only to see a 'low battery' warning followed by the screen going black. I pressed the power button. The camera powered on for a few moments and battery icons on the settings screen showed full power. Then after a few moments it shut down without warning.
Very impressive continuous shooting, Poor image quality
The best way to purchase the E1410SW is therefore with a discount. At $160 this camera is competitive in price, but not in performance. Should you stumble across a deal of some kind, something that involves buying the camera for, say, less than $100, that will be a good value. Otherwise there are just too many other options out there.
iAuto shooting mode is accurate and easy in all situations
The GE E1410SW is a very powerful ultra-compact digicam. Featuring a 10x optical zoom lens, 14-Megapixel CMOS imaging sensor, powerful burst modes and full 1080p video capture, you will not find another camera with these features in this price range.
It's not even good as a paperweight
The $10 would be better spent on crayons. You'd get a more realistic and recognizable image, you'd be able to make more than 20 pictures, and you could more easily access the pictures.
1.3 mega pixel is unacceptable, so I don't know why this exists in 2013. But the low quality doesn't matter because the pictures are all trapped on there. Despite the box stating "Mac Compatible" it stores the photos in it's own proprietary format requiring the included Windows-only software to access.
Upon installation, the handsets began beeping periodically. Voice transmission is interrupted when the beeping occurs. Our engineer son determined that the base unit is defective or sends a very weak signal, causing the beeping. The manufacturer is not honoring its warranty and will not replace the unit. Avoid this product! The amplification is not much better than a standard wireless telephone system and the keypad attracts dirt and is hard to keep clean.
Very easy to use, just a point-and-shoot interface
GE's C1433 is an entry-level point-and-shoot digital camera with the lowest price point of GE's newly announced models, about $80. Features include red-eye removal, face, smile, and blink detection, image stabilization, and a 14-megapixel resolution
