When I bought a Canon EOS M, I thought, no way it can't be worth the price. You can get those things for $200 with a lens included in some places. Yet, I still see a lot of people saying it isn't worth it.
First off, if a camera that cheap is as powerful as this thing is, it is absolutely worth it. It has the sensor of a DSLR, yet it is the size of a point and shoot. If you get the 22mm pancake lens with it, the sharpness is astounding.
For vlogging, this camera is deeply irritating due to it's sluggishness. It never seems to want to focus on what I want it to focus on, at the moment I want. It makes me want to start using a point and shoot for vlogging, since those are lower maintenance in the moment than this thing.
That said, I love the Canon EOS M for vlogging at the same time. It shoots solid photos, so I can shoot really great thumbnails on the spot without switching cameras. It has a mic jack, so I can put my directional microphone on top. It's small, so I can fit it in my jacket pocket (after taking it off the gorilla pod)
There are so many ways to make this camera more powerful: I put Magic Lantern and some new profiles on this thing, which have actually helped the focus problem in a weird way. I always have a gorilla pod attached so it's super easy to hold steady. I got the 22mm pancake for low light situations, which hasn't come off the camera since I bought it.
Part of the fun of making something every day is to embrace your limits. Getting creative with the small amount of gear you have feels good, and is fun. If you saw my lighting setups for portrait shoots, you would see a ton of duct tape and tin foil. Every thing in "creating" is a problem to solve, and that's the best part.
I recommend the Canon EOS M if you're starting with video or you just want a travel camera. It's solid, small, and really is absurdly powerful for what it is.
