Canon M3 features built-in wireless (Wi-Fi) connectivity ( 802.11b/g/n with NFC) which lets you transfer your photos directly to compatible devices without any physical connection. With its NFC feature, M3 can communicate with devices such as smartphones which are also equipped with this technology by simply touching each other.One other feature that we like is the ability to use our smartphone as a remote to control our M3. You can change camera settings, release shutter, view LCD screen and tranfer files using remote control app.
You can connect M3 to compatible devices via its HDMI port or USB 2.0 (480 Mbit/sec) port.
Canon M3 is powered by LP-E17
battery which provides a battery life of 250 shots
according to CIPA standards.
Considering that the average battery life of Mirrorless type cameras is 369 shots, Canon M3 has a short battery life for its class so we strongly recommend M3 owners to buy some extra batteries.
