7 THINGS TO DO WITH THE CANON EOS M10
The EOS M10 is Canon’s latest mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera, and it comes with a high-resolution 18MP APS-C-size CMOS sensor, as well as an advanced Hybrid CMOS II autofocus system. The EOS M10 is also easy to use, with a large 3-inch touchscreen that flips 180° for the perfect selfie. It connects easily to smart devices, and lets you transfer photos quickly to share with family and friends.
1. LOVE SELFIES? LOVE THE EOS M10
If you love selfies, the EOS M10 is built for you. The large, 3-inch touchscreen flip monitor is built for taking the perfect selfie. Flip it around to face yourself, and the M10 automatically displays the Self Portrait mode shortcut icon.
Touch to enter Self Portrait mode, and adjust settings like the amount of background blur, photo brightness and even the smoothness of your skin. When you’re ready, activate the self-timer and a countdown timer appears, so you’ll always be caught with the perfect pose.
The flip monitor isn’t just good for you. The EOS M10 comes with the new 15–45mm f/3.5–6.3 IS STM kit lens, with a wider 24mm focal length (in 35mm equivalent), which means you can get more of everyone in a single group wefie.
2. SHARE YOUR PICTURES RIGHT AWAY
The EOS M10 makes sharing photos with your smart mobile device as quick as pressing a button. Once you’ve connected to a smartphone using the dedicated pairing button on the M10’s body and the steps that follow, you can simply press the button after that to connect the two devices again.
That’s how easy it is to send photos over to your smartphone, so you can immediately share them with your friends and family. Besides sharing photos, you can also use Canon’s Camera Connect app for Android and iOS to control the M10 remotely.
Plus, with NFC-enabled smartphones, you can tap the two devices together to start the pairing process, and you can also connect the two devices using Wi-Fi.
3. CAPTURE PERFECT PORTRAITS WITH THE PRECISION OF HYBRID AF
The perfect portrait needs perfect focus — the best moment goes to waste if the subject is out of focus and looks blurry. Portrait photographers know that the most important part of the face to get in focus are the eyes, but it can be difficult to do if your autofocus (AF) system is slow.
The EOS M10 comes with an advanced Hybrid CMOS II AF system, which combines the best of both phase and contrast detection technology. What that means is that the M10 will make sure what needs to be in focus will stay in focus, helping you get the perfect shot without struggling with slow AF.
4. HAVE FUN WITH THE CREATIVE FILTERS
Ever wanted to add some extra finesse to your images but didn’t know how? The EOS M10 lets you express your inner artist without having to learn complicated software.
It comes with seven Creative Filters, ‘Grainy black and white,’ ‘Art bold,’ ‘Water painting,’ ‘Fish-eye,’ ‘Toy camera,’ and ‘Soft focus,’ which let you change the mood and look of a photo to show how it felt, not just how it looked.
5. CAPTURE EXPRESSIVE LANDSCAPES USING THE WIDER LENS
The EOS M10 comes with the new 15–45mm f/3.5–6.3 IS STM kit lens, which has a wider focal length than most kit lenses at 24mm (in 35mm equivalent). The wider focal length lets you get more subjects in a single frame, and is also perfect for capturing more in a landscape.
The lens’ built-in image stabilization ensures that your images remain steady and sharp, while the STM (short for ‘stepping motor’) auto-focuses quickly and silently, perfect for recording great audio when shooting video.
6. MAKE THE EOS M10 YOUR VERY OWN
Everyone’s camera usually looks like everyone else’s, but you can make the EOS M10 your own using Canon’s face jackets (sold separately). Choose from bright, single colors to match your moods, or select unique patterns to express your personality.
7. GET MULTIPLE EFFECTS WITH DIFFERENT LENSES
One of the best things about getting an interchangeable-lens camera is the ability to switch lenses, giving you more flexibility and a wider range.
Use the 11–22mm lens to get even more in the frame, useful for both tight rooms and big landscapes. Or try the 55–200mm lens, which lets you zoom in and get closer with subjects that are far away.
The 22mm lens gives you more background blur with an f/2 aperture, for beautiful separation between subject and background. And with a Canon EF-EOS M mount adapter, you can access to Canon’s wide library of DSLR lenses for use on your EOS M10.
