Canon EOS M10 Review – Minimalist entry-level system camera





The Canon EOS M10 is a great camera for beginners. Minimalist design with few buttons, the camera is fairly easy to operate. A wrong button press can not, after all, and therefore he does not look overwhelming. The touch-sensitive screen that can tilt upward 180 degrees, is easy to operate farther the better. At the same time you have the screen by the lack of buttons quickly needed. For amateur photographers who like to play with settings, the camera is less interesting. Other potential turn-offs are moderately bright lens, the lack of a flash foot and some scrollwheel. On the other, the image quality of a large sensor front, but there are many alternatives in this price segment.

Relatively compact
Easy operation
Tilting screen


Dimly illuminated
No flash foot
Only one rotary wheel
Short battery life
Limited lenses offer

During the Canon Expo in October last year, Canon announced the EOS M10 system camera. After the introduction of the EOS M3 in June the same year, the M10 looks to build on the original M and M2 with a simple design without too many buttons. The M10 is even more perfunctory.

The image sensor is based on the 18-megapixel sensor of the EOS M2, with the cmos II hybrid autofocus system that combines contrast and phase detection. The number of phase detection AF points is increased from 31 to 49. In addition, the M10 is equipped with the 6 Digic image processor, which according to Canon produces a slightly better image quality, especially thanks to improved algorithms. Think of noise reduction.

Canon EOS M10

With the introduction of the M10 Canon has expanded its product range of system cameras that clarified. We had, after all, the original EOS M from 2012, followed by M2, which never officially in the Netherlands and Belgium is delivered, and then the M3. The latter, however, was more focused on advanced amateurs. The M10 is the successor to the somewhat simple EOS M and must serve the lower end of the market, such as people without much shooting experience seeking an affordable system camera with a large sensor. At the same time, the M3 must serve the top end of the market. If the number methodology of the EOS range is maintained, this would mean that the M3 is the flagship and there, in this series, no more models emerge.

However, the EOS M10 has a pair of improvements over the first two generations EOS M cameras, although not all components are improved. We were wondering whether the improvements, combined with the relatively low price, are enough to make an interesting and good camera EOS M10 at the entry level segment.
