Canon EOS M10 Field Test: A simple, easy-to-use entry-level mirrorless camera


posted Wednesday, July 13, 2016 at 9:57 AM EST


The Canon EOS M10 is the Canon's more entry-level mirrorless offering, which combines a compact form factor with an attractive price tag. The simple camera body is matched with an intuitive user interface and nice tilting 3-inch touchscreen display. There is no viewfinder or many controls, though. The EOS M10 is a camera that will not be intimidating to new users yet still offers your standard assortment of shooting modes.

The Canon M10's APS-C sensor provides 18 megapixels of resolving power. During my field test, I found image quality to be acceptable, although it doesn't offer much "wow" factor. The M10's autofocus and high-speed performance make it clear that this is not a camera for fast-paced sports or things of that nature, but the target audience should find plenty to be happy with.
