It is just a couple of month back that Canon launched its first decent mirrorless camera, the EOS M3. Now it has revealed a tiny, cheaper sibling of it, the EOS M10. The camera arrived in Canon’s store with no press release or any info in advance, but judging by the specs, it’s essentially a stripped-down version of the M3. It carries a lightweight, more basic body, and is equipped with an 18-megapixel instead of a 24.2-megapixel sensor. It’s pretty darn similar otherwise, however: it has the same 49-point AF, 25,600 max (expanded) ISO, 3-inch, 1.04 million dot touchscreen and shoots 1080/30p video. Little differnt here is that it comes as well with a different kit lens. Instead od the 18-55 lens that comes with the M3 the M10 has a 15-45mm lens attached to it.
Depending on the price, the model might interest photographers looking for a very small APS-C camera who don’t want to spend $680 on the EOS M3 body. However, the lack of an EVF option . Being sold at 599$ in the pre order right now, I would rather go for the M3 instead. But we will have to wait to get the EOS M10 in our hands to review it properly.
The M10 shows available in the Canon Shop in three different colours. White, Black and Grey. I hope they put our a red option as well. I loved the red on my M2.
