Thinking of entering the mirrorless camera space? Or just looking for a compact but capable camera for casual shooting and travels? You might want to check out Canon’s latest offering — the Canon M100.
Canon, together with Nikon, might be falling behind the mirrorless revolution. A race that’s currently being led by Sony and Fujifilm. Nonetheless, it looks like Canon is taking their sweet time in making the shift.
We now have the new Canon M100, a long overdue follow up to the M10 from two years ago. The M100 carries the design language of the M5, one of the few compelling offerings from Canon today. The device is small and compact — making it a nice go-to camera.
Although it’s missing an optical viewfinder, it does have a 3-inch touchscreen that can be tilted. It also packs a 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor, something that can be found on other cameras today. The sensor is backed by Canon’s Digic 7 image processor.
The M100 also has smart features like most cameras have these days. It has Bluetooth, WiFi, and NFC. The camera also support’s Canon’s smartphone companion app. This lets you easily transfer images, or operate the camera itself via the smart device.
