I guess there is no recent Canon camera that’s getting so much love from reviewers as the Canon EOS M100 (specifications, and price in your country), the company’s latest entry-level mirrorless interchangeable lens camera and as it appears, a well made one.

Cameralabs reviewed the EOS M100, and their opinion is not different than other (positive) reviews. Delivering DSLR image quality, Dual Pixel AF, and more DSLR-ish features on a very compact and lightweight, and beginner-friendly camera seems to be a winning formula.

From their conclusion:

The Canon EOS M100 is […] designed as a first step up from a smartphone, an introduction to ‘real’ photography […] As such it needs to get the balance right, with nothing too complex or unfamiliar, whilst at the same time providing enough control to enable newbie photographers to develop their skills. It also needs to be able to do the things a phone can do at least as well if not better and, finally, it needs some fun feature modes.

The EOS M100 manages all of those things very well. It’s compact enough to be able to slip it in your pocket and the simple control layout means anyone can pick it up and start using it straight away. The flip-up screen and selfie features combined with great connectivity make it almost as easy to share your photos and videos as if you’d shot them on your phone in the first place. It has good range of effects filters, a time-lapse movie and Hybrid movie mode and the touch screen and well designed interface will make phone photographers feel very at home. Beyond that it offers the same image quality as the more sophisticated EOS M6, the same fast and accurate Dual-pixel AF, 1080p video and respectable 6fps (4fps with Continuous AF) continuous shooting.
