Canon EOS M10 Review (a Simple, Easy-to-use Entry-level MILC, Imaging Resource)

Canon EOS M10: Amazon | B&H Photo | Digitalrev | eBay | Adorama | Canon USA

Canon EOS M10 at a glance:

  • 18.0MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 6 Image Processor
  • 3.0″ 1.04m-Dot Tilting Touchscreen LCD
  • Full HD 1080p Video at 30/24 fps
  • Built-In Wi-Fi Connectivity NFC
  • Hybrid CMOS AF II, 49-Point System
  • Up to 4.6 fps and Expandable ISO 25600
  • Creative Assist and Self Portrait Mode

Imaging Resource posted their Canon EOS M10 review, Canon’s entry-level mirrorless camera.

Offering a simple, effective user experience, this camera is not equipped to rattle off a big burst of RAW images or record 4K video, but it can easily capture fine images at a fairly wide range of ISOs. When considering the Canon EOS M10, you need to keep your expectations in check with its entry-level status (and price point). Right now, you can purchase an M10 with the 15-45mm kit lens for only $450 ($150 less than MSRP). Considering its good image quality and intuitive, simple controls, it strikes me as a good option for someone looking to make the upgrade to his or her first interchangeable lens camera, while still keeping everything lightweight and compact. Read the review…

The EOS M10’s weakest point appears to be the auto-focus. The strongest are the ease of use, the well working touchscreen, and the excellent image quality we are used to get with Canon.

Samyang Going To Announce 5 New Lenses In The Next 5 Weeks

Samyang (aka Rokinon) just posted a teaser on their Facebook page, saying:

In this Summer, the five Samyang Blockbuster series will blow your mind away!

5 NEW Samyang Lenses will be released on every Monday for the next five weeks.

So far no idea what kind of lenses they are going to announce. However, it’s a pretty safe bet that they will come with Canon mount (among others). Stay tuned.

I’ve been told (thanks) that the Canon EOS C100 Mark III is set to feature 4K video. The C100 Mark III is scheduled to be announced for or just before Photokina 2016 in September, and will come along with other new Canon Cinema EOS products.

The whole Canon Cinema line-up saw solid price drops in the last weeks (see here and here). This too suggests Canon may have some new stuff ready to get announced.
