Canon EOS M10 : Newest Mirrorless Camera

Last November 2015, Canon Philippines introduced EOS M10, their newest addition to EOS M range of mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. As a blogger, I am now a user and  huge fan of mirrorless camera.

Why is mirrorless camera a breakthrough? It produces superior DSLR like image quality with the body of a digital camera.

EOS M10 is paired with EF 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens. It's also an ideal camera for those who like to upgrade their selfie game because the 3.0" LCD touchscreen extends to 180 degrees. Also, it has a shortcut option to activate the self-portrait mode that enables quick adjustments to parameters for taking the best selfies – brightness, smooth skin effect, background defocus, flash and self-timer.
Aside from it's amazing selfie features, it also has Creative Assist Feature consisting of a series of six sliders such as Blur /Sharpen (Aperture), Darker/Brighter (Exposure), Cool/Warm (White Balance) that enables even the new photographer creative control of their pictures and the fun of experimenting.

Powered by the advanced Canon DIGIC 6, the processor handles images quietly at swift speed and ensures high speed processing with low power consumption. Paired with the 18.0-megapixel CMOS sensor, high-resolution and clarity in images will stand out. Even in dim lighting, the high ISO speed performance from 100 – 12800 on the EOS M10 will capture rich colors and details.

The enhanced Hybrid CMOS AF II system uses a combination of phase-difference detection AF and traditional Contrast AF for focusing and tracking subjects with precision. The EOS M10 uses an APS-C sized sensor, commonly used in the EOS DSLR range of cameras. The larger sensor size powerfully captures more light during exposure, ensuring higher image quality typically associated with DSLR cameras.

Connected to any Wi-fi service, EOS M10 users can post their videos and photos directly to Facebook and YouTube after a one time redistration on Canon iMAGE GATEWAY (CiG).

Remote operation using your smart phone is also possible with NFC and Wifi connectivity. Once connected via the Camera Connect app, the EOS M10’s live view from the LCD screen is beamed to the smart device’s screen in real-time. A variety of shooting modes, different aspect ratios, focus selection, self-timer and more can be adjusted – all from the smart phone while shooting superior quality images from the EOS M10. The remote shooting feature is ideal for taking group portraits or shooting at unusual angles, allowing easy control of the self-timer and shutter release.
