THERE’S A NEW MIRRORLESS EOS IN TOWN
Canon Unveiled EOS M10 and Collapsible Kit Lens
Although its mirrorless lineup isn’t receiving as much attention as the company would have hoped, Canon isn’t about to abandon the mirrorless market. The company recently unveiled a new mirrorless EOS camera, called the EOS M10, to this effect.
The EOS M10 will be sold as a kit, bundled with the new collapsible EF-M 15-45 mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens. In case you’re wondering, it’s called a collapsible lens because you can retract it and lock it into place when not in use. This makes the system highly compact.
Inside, the EOS M10 is equipped with an 18MP APS-C sensor with an ISO range of 100 to 12,800, which is expandable to 25,600. It also uses the latest DIGIC 6 image processor, and has a Hybrid CMOS AF II system, which allows for continuous shooting speeds up to 4.6 frames per second. As for videos, it records in Full HD, at 24p and 30p, in MP4 format.
As with most modern cameras, the EOS M10 has a 3-inch LCD monitor that tilts 180-degree upwards for selfie shots. While in Selfie mode, you can adjust skin smoothness and brightness. For quick uploads to social media sites, the EOS M10 is also equipped with Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity.
When it comes to pricing, the EOS M10 is priced at US$599 with the 15-45 mm lens, which translates to about RM2,528. Unfortunately, there’s no official word on local availability at the time of writing.
