LCD attachment on the Canon M

The LCD screen on the Canon EOS M is fixed to the body. This solid attachment means that the connection between camera body and rear screen is very sturdy and the LCD is less likely to be damaged, for example, during a camera tumble than a hinged design. On the other hand, the fixed screen design does not make it possible to articulate the LCD for better visibility during odd-angle shots.

In terms of size and resolution, the rear LCD of the Canon M measures 3.0 inches and offers a resolution of 1,040,000 dots. The panel is touch sensitive.
