FEA­TURES

What are the key spec­i­fi­ca­tions and in­no­va­tions of our com­pet­ing trio?

T3 India - - State Of The Art -

mall cam­era, big sen­sor is the chief ap­peal of the Canon EOS M100, which in prac­ti­cal terms en­sures it’s a cam­era com­pact enough to slip com­fort­ably into a jacket, while be­ing able to achieve DSLR-like image qual­ity. While there are a hand­ful of EF-M-mount lenses that can be at­tached to this cam­era di­rectly, buy­ing an op­tional adapter pro­vides ac­cess to 70+ ad­di­tional lenses, which is a huge ad­van­tage. Sim­plic­ity and price en­sure this is at­trac­tive for any­one stepping up from a smart­phone, who will love the touch­screen plus Wi-Fi and Blue­tooth op­tions for shar­ing im­ages. We were us­ing this one with a 15-45mm kit lens, a good all-en­com­pass­ing starter op­tion.

Also with a big sen­sor, yet a slightly big­ger and heav­ier frame, the Fuji X-E3 is, sur­pris­ingly, the first in its se­ries to fea­ture Blue­tooth. Like the oth­ers here, fo­cus and ex­po­sure can be con­trolled with a fin­ger tap on the LCD, even if the screen it­self isn’t an­glead­justable. We also get fin­ger-pinch-and-flick zoom ca­pa­bil­i­ties, rem­i­nis­cent of a smart­phone screen, plus a newly de­vel­oped image recog­ni­tion al­go­rithm. Alu­minium milled top-plate di­als, let­ting us get to the nitty gritty, help this one stand out from the crowd. We were us­ing the Fuji with an 18-55mm stan­dard zoom, al­low­ing for a broad range of sub­ject mat­ter to be cap­tured.

While the Olym­pus can’t com­pete with the other two here for sen­sor size or head­line

res­o­lu­tion, it is fea­ture-packed, in­clud­ing ad­justable LCD, flash, touch-panel screen and eye-level viewfinder. We also get five-axis image sta­bil­i­sa­tion de­ployed when shoot­ing stills and video, with the lat­est must-have of 4K cap­ture be­ing of­fered. New fea­tures of the Mark III in­clude a Bleach By­pass dig­i­tal ef­fects fil­ter, while the shoot­ing mode menu in­cludes an Ad­vanced Photo Mode, pro­vid­ing the abil­ity to fine-tune im­agery in-cam­era, as well as ac­cess fun set­tings such as Live Com­pos­ite and Mul­ti­ple Ex­po­sure modes. So less time spent on the com­puter later.
