Canon Unveils EOS M100 Mirrorless Camera


Canon just unveiled the EOS M100, a compact and stylish mirrorless camera that’s available in either black or white models. The Canon EOS M100 is the successor to the M10, which was introduced in late 2015.

The Canon EOS M100 uses a 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and the Canon DIGIC 7 processor. The M100 is designed for those photographers looking to step up from smartphone photography, Canon said in a press announcement tonight.

Other features of the new Canon M100 mirrorless camera include Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which enables high-speed focusing for both still photography and when shooting video. The EOS M100 camera is also Wi-Fi, Near Field Communication (NFC) and Bluetooth connected, allowing for live-view remote shooting and the viewing and transferring of images to a compatible smart device, via the Canon Camera Connect app.

The Canon EOS M100 camera features a revamped touch user interface that makes it easy for users to change settings, adjust modes and even focus on their subject. The 3-inch LCD touch-panel display also offers tilt functionality, helpful when shooting subjects from creative angles. Users can also use touch focus and Dual Pixel CMOS AF to transition focus between subjects with the touch of a finger.

The new EOS M100 is slimmer and lighter than other M-Series offerings, and is designed to fit easily into a bag for on-the-go photography. The M100’s new sleek and refined design features two body color options—white or black.

The Canon EOS M100 will go on sale in October 2017 for an estimated retail price of $599.99 with the EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens and $949.99 with EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens and EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM lens. In addition, the Canon EOS EF-M Mount Adapter is currently available for a suggested retail price of $199.99.
