DPReview published their full review of Canon’s latest beginner oriented mirrorless camera, the EOS M100, Canon’s smallest and most inexpensive mirrorless interchangeable lens camera.

Excerpts from DPReview’s conclusion:

On the whole, we consider the M100 to be a great value and incredibly user-friendly. If you’re a novice, and grow in your photography such that you find you do want to dictate some of your exposure settings, this camera also offers all the manual control you might want. […]

The Canon EOS M100 offers virtually identical image quality to the higher-end EOS M5 and M6 for hundreds of dollars less; this means that dynamic range and noise levels are competitive, if not best-in-class. […] [the EOS M100] will simply take great pictures under a wide variety of scenarios, and places very few demands on the user while doing so. It’s a camera that you just want to pick up and take with you to document your daily life.

And it’s because the M100 is such an enjoyable camera to use at a competitive price, that it encourages you to bring it with you rather than letting it languish on a shelf, and that it makes taking pictures genuinely fun, it earns our highest award. Read the review…

Canon clearly had the audience of smartphone users looking to step up in mind, and at those users they aimed the EOS M100. It’s a pity that Canon still does not deliver a real ecosystem (i,e. lenses) for their EOS M system. It must also be said that EF/EF-S lenses used with the EF/EF-M adapter and Dual Pixel AF perform very good. Still, native lenses would be better.

The EOS M100 is getting many positive reviews. Good to see that Canon did it right. You can download the EOS M100 user manual, in case you want to learn more about Canon’s latest MILC.
