Canon EOS M100

 

The mirrorless Canon EOS M100 delivers SLR image quality and fast autofocus in a compact build with a touch LCD that makes it easy for anyone to use.

Very compact. 24MP APS-C image sensor. Fast autofocus. 6.1fps burst shooting. Tilting touch LCD. Built-in flash. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

No EVF or mic input. Not a lot of native lenses available. Touch interface will turn off pros and shutterbugs. 1080p video feels dated.

Canon has done a good job with the EOS M100. It doesn't sacrifice any image quality or focus speed compared with the higher-end models in the line. Instead, it focuses on making things easy and making the camera portable enough so that you won't mind...

Canon EOS M100 review

 

The Canon EOS M100 is a likeable little camera that comes with Canon's latest APS-C image quality in an entry-level offering. But is that enough to make it stand out to beginning photographers in a crowded market? Find out in our full review.

As we've said in our shooting experience, the EOS M100 is just a fun camera to use. Even for seasoned photographers, it's a freeing experience being able to use the M100 in full auto, have great image quality from the large APS-C sensor, and stuff it...

Canon EOS M100 Review

 

It's been said that "Good things come in small packages" and this camera embodies that statement. Canon's EOS M-series cameras, squeezing large APS-C sensors into tiny bodies, represent a maximization of image quality relative to camera size and...

Canon EOS M100 system camera

 

Canon EOS M100 compact system camera : Canon introduced the successor to the EOS M10 interchangeable lens camera: the compact and powerful EOS M100. An easy-to-use system camera, the Canon EOS M100 is an excellent choice for those looking to step up...

The use of interchangeable lenses is a differentiating factor of the Canon EOS M-Series from most smartphone photography, with Canon offering seven distinct and lightweight EF-M lenses, spanning wide-angle, telephoto and macro applications.

Canon EOS M100 Review

 

For photographers who want to step up from a smartphone or compact point and shoot camera, Canon hopes that the new EOS M100 will fit the bill. The M100 replaces the roughly two-year-old

Canon EOS M100 Mirrorless Camera Review: Good For Novices

 

The Canon EOS M100 is definitely targeted at those who've never used an advanced camera or perhaps even a point-and-shoot before. For those people, this mirrorless camera is an attractive choice if you're looking to step up the quality of your photos...

Variety of intuitive scene modes and settings ; Lightweight and easy to use ; Very good in low light and challenging lighting situations ; Responsive swiveling touch-screen LCD ; Relatively inexpensive

No electronic viewfinder ; Lacks 4K video ; No hot shoe for external flash ; Smaller lens selection than what other mirrorless cameras offer

Canon's mirrorless camera for beginners works well and is easy to use, but it has some limitations.

Canon EOS M100

 

Hands-on with Canon's entry-level mirrorless camera. Canon EOS M100.

Good wireless connectivity ; Small and lightweight ; Responsive touchscreen ; Well built for an entry-level model

Lacks guided user interface ; Very basic controls ; Doesn't offer support for a viewfinder ; Very basic controls

The Canon EOS M100 picks up where the Canon EOS M10 left off, but it’s very basic, rather expensive, and has room for improvement in areas of its handling and manual control. Anyone buying their first interchangeable camera or looking to take their...

Canon EOS M100 review

 

A mirrorless camera for the selfie generation

Very good image quality ; Super-simple for novices ; Fast and responsive autofocus ; Compact retracting kit lens

No viewfinder ; Everyday adjustments fiddly ; Full HD not 4K video ; Not especially easy to grip

The EOS M100 has been designed to be simple and unintimidating for novices and smartphone photographers, and it succeeds at that really well – but if you're looking for a camera that can grow with your technical skills you could soon find it frustrating.

Canon EOS M100 review: Pocketable point-and-shoot makes mirrorless easy

 

If you're looking for DSLR image quality in a point-and-shoot-style camera, then the Canon EOS M100 makes a lot of sense. However, for us, it's a bit

Really small-scale design ; Good image quality in good light ; Touchscreen functionality and point-and-shoot use ; Excellent wireless connectivity

Limited lens line-up ; Point-and-shoot design means many manual controls are hard to access ; Not as beginner-friendly as it could be

If you're looking for DSLR image quality in a point-and-shoot-style camera, then the Canon EOS M100 makes a lot of sense. However, for us, it's a bit of a hit-and-miss camera.
