THE CANON EOS M100 is the lat­est mir­ror­less model in the EOS M range and is aimed at photo novices look­ing for a small, easy to use and af­ford­able cam­era. It boasts a 24.2- mil­lion pixel APS- C CMOS sen­sor, a DIGIC 7 im­age pro­ces­sor, Dual Pixel AF, in­te­gral flash, Full HD video and both Wi- Fi and Blue­tooth. The 3in 1,040,000- dot LCD mon­i­tor can be tilted up­wards by 180° and has a touch­screen fa­cil­ity. There is a wide range of ex­po­sure modes in­clud­ing sev­eral scene modes, as well as four me­ter­ing pat­terns and a set of creative fil­ters. Con­sid­er­ing it costs only £ 450 body- only (£ 570 with 15- 45mm lens), it of­fers an ex­cel­lent range of fea­tures.

Also an­nounced are four EF lenses de­signed for the EOS range of DSLRS, all due to be on sale in Novem­ber. Por­trait users will be at­tracted by the (£ 1,570) EF 85mm f/ 1.4L IS USM prime, de­signed to give ul­tra- sharp por­traits with at­trac­tive bokeh. It boasts 14 el­e­ments in ten groups and a four- stop im­age sta­biliser.

Close- up pho­tog­ra­phers look­ing for a high­pow­ered macro- light will need to start sav­ing up for the (£ 1,080) MT- 26EX- RT, re­leased in Novem­ber. This twin- light model has mov­able flash tubes, clip- on dif­fusers ad ad­justable power set­tings. It fea­tures a hot­shoe- mounted con­trol unit and sports a ra­dio wire­less fa­cil­ity that al­lows it to con­trol up to 15 other flash units in five groups. www. canon. co. uk
