Canon announces the EOS M10, the most portable mirrorless camera

We found out in August that Canon’s best mirrorless camera, the EOS M3, was coming to the United States this fall. Now we know it’ll have some company on store shelves, because Canon just announced the EOS M10 — essentially a cheaper version of the M3 — along with a few new lenses for its nascent mirrorless camera ecosystem.

The EOS M10 is a much more consumer-friendly version of its more photographer-focused sibling both inside and out. The new camera uses an 18-megapixel APS-C sensor (which is the size typically found in entry-level DSLRs) that’s outfitted with Canon’s DIGIC 6 image processor, and the M10’s light sensitivity ranges from ISO 100 to 12,800. The camera can shoot 1080p video at 24 or 30 frames per second, but it won’t shoot slow-motion or UHD footage. It shoots still photos at up to 4.6 frames per second, and it also has Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity.

On the outside the M10 eschews the M3’s rubber grip, multiple control dials, and flash hot shoe for a much simpler point-and-shoot aesthetic. The top of the device features a mode dial (for switching between video, stills, and auto mode), a record button, and a ring around the shutter button — and that’s it. The back is covered mostly by the tilting, 3-inch touchscreen, though there’s still room for menu and playback buttons. The M10 looks like it would slip right into a pocket — if it wasn’t for the detachable lenses it uses, that is.
