Canon EOS M100 – Price, Specs and Release Date

Canon has announced the EOS M100, a new entry level mirrorless camera that replaces the M10. It features the same 24MP APS-C sensor and Dual-Pixel AF technology used in the M5 and M6.

The M100 can shoot up to ISO 25600 and the AF area includes 49 phase detection points. Continuous shooting speeds go up to 6fps and 4fps with continuous AF which is a decent improvement over the previous M10. Video capabilities include 1080p at 30 and 60fps options.

Concerning the design, a few minor cosmetic changes have been made but the camera remains compact and lightweight. The rear LCD screen is touch sensitive and Canon made sure to include a friendly and intuitive interface with on-screen explanations for beginners. The screen can be flipped up to take selfies. There is a Smooth Skin mode with 5 different levels, in addition to many creative filters.

You can use Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth to connect the camera to a mobile device and transfer images among other things.
