Unboxing: Canon EOS M + Price

January 3, 2013

Day 7

Umeda Station
Osaka, Japan

I'm so excited I could not wait until Day 7 (the day I bought my camera ; p) to share with you my newest baby, Canon EOS M.

 Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS M JPY 10,800 (PhP 5,400)

Mount Adapter EF-EOS M feature:

  • Allow Canon EF and EF-S lenses to be mounted on the Canon EOS M digital camera

To view what's inside the box of Canon EOS M, read after the break...

It was not really in our plan to buy a new camera. Instead of going to Hiroshima on Day 7, fyi ---> a round trip costs JPY 40,000 (PhP 20,000) for 2 pax, we decided to get a new camera. Get the logic? hahaha Ok, Hiroshima has a lot of history, it will definitely be part of our itinerary on our next trip to Japan.
