What are some of the goods, bads, and uglies of the Canon EOS M10?


Image Quality

It features an 18MP APS-C CMOS sensor and the Digic 6 image processor, a similar configuration to lớn the Rebel T5i SLR. While its sensor is smaller than the 24MP sensor the M3 features, it remains sufficiently large khổng lồ provide exceptional details. And overall, it is a surprisingly capable sensor squeezed into lớn a camera of this kích thước. It delivers a good dynamic range, and images provide excellent contrast và plenty of fine details. The results are sharp và deliver Canon’s pleasing aesthetic with natural color reproduction. And, in many respects, the image unique is directly on par with Canon’s larger DSLRs, without their extra bulk và weight.

It provides continuous shooting speeds of up khổng lồ 4.6 fps without AF or 2.2 fps with AF, reasonably good rates for this class. And the camera offers a 6 shot RAW or an 80+ JPEG buffer with no signs of slowing.

Video Quality

It records 1080p full HD Clip up khổng lồ 30 fps and 720p HD Clip up to 60 fps in the highly-friendly MP4 format. The Clip quality is good, though it isn’t’ extraordinary. It closely matches the footage captured on most smartphones today, though it provides better dynamic range. However, considering the cameras added versatility và larger capabilities, it’s excellent, particularly so for those who are vloggers. And unlike most comparable point & shoot cameras in this price range, this camera features full manual control over exposure during đoạn Clip recording. And it also offers a dedicated video clip record button, removing the need lớn swap settings entirely.

Do know, recording times are limited khổng lồ 29 minutes & 59 seconds, the standard time limit for this class of camera.

Low Light Performance

It features a native ISO range from 100 to lớn 12,800, further expandable to lớn 25,600. And low light performance is good for this class of camera và sensor combination. Users can expect usable images up lớn ISO 3,200 and videos up to ISO 1,600.

Focusing Performance

It features a 49-point hybrid phase-detection AF system, which combines both contrast & phase-detection for added accuracy. The system also brings along with it Face+Tracking Priority AF, allowing the camera khổng lồ recognize and trachồng faces during movement.

Unlượt thích some cameras in this class, it also features the focus peaking, a helpful aid when manually focusing to lớn better gauge critical focus.

Display và Viewfinder

It features a 3.0-inch TFT 180º flip-up touchscreen, making the camera well suited for self-composed videos, selfies, and vlogging. This articulation also helps for low-angle shots and provides excellent versatility when shooting at uncommon angles. The screen offers a resolution of 1.04M dots, a nice touch over the 460K dot panels typically found on cameras in this range. Overall, it delivers excellent viewing angles, sharpness, và ample brightness to lớn see outdoors on a sunny day. Since it’s a touchscreen, it also supports touch focus, touch shutter, touch gestures, and thực đơn navigation. Canon has optimized the camera well for this style of đầu vào, and the screen is incredibly responsive.

User Interface

The camera features Canon’s standard user interface và menus. However, Canon has updated the menus slightly to lớn make them easier lớn underst& for first time users. And, overall, the changes are subtle but make the interface better organized, và intuitive. Both newcomers to the system và existing Canon shooters will find this camera easily mastered & straightforward to navigate. With the addition of a touchscreen, the camera now provides full menu navigation via touch, which works well & considerably speeds up workflow. The camera also offers the full suite of manual controls và operations, which makes it well-suited for those who are new but want khổng lồ advance quickly.

It also features the Q button, which launches the on-screen Quiông chồng Menu, displaying a menu of all critical shooting parameters on a single page.

Physical Layout & Ergonomics

As expected, the build unique isn’t as robust as Canon’s higher-kết thúc bodies, and the camera is composed primarily of polycarbonate plastic. The camera is smaller than some of its competition in this class, weighing only 265 g body toàn thân only. But, despite its all-plastic construction & small form size, the camera features a rubber & embossed grip to lớn aid in comfort while shooting, though the grip is rather small. But, surprisingly, the camera remains well-balanced, reasonably comfortable. And, overall, it manages to provide a good hefty weight khổng lồ it and feels sturdy in h&.

Canon has also kept the number of physical controls on the camera quite low & minimal. However, it works in its favor to provide a clean, unobtrusive sầu layout, making the interface straightforward và less intimidating khổng lồ new users. All of the controls are easily reached & offer a nice tactile feel. As this is Canon’s entry-level offering, it lacks some of the quiông xã access dials và customization found on the higher-over EOS M6 camera for changing shooting or exposure settings. Instead, these settings are changed through the touch interface.

However, it does offer a paired down three-position mode dial và a dedicated đoạn Clip record button. It also features an adjustment dial that surrounds the shutter button, allowing users to adjust either shutter tốc độ or aperture quickly. And it offers a dedicated smartphone connect button for immediate access to this functionality.

Nibít Features/Extras

It features a built-in pop-up flash.

It features built-in Wi-Fi & NFC connectivity, allowing users to connect the camera to a điện thoại thông minh or tablet. Once connected, you can remotely control the camera and take photos, or remotely transfer photos for sharing online. You can also add location & GPS data to lớn photos using the ứng dụng as well.

It features Highlight Tone Priority, which focuses the exposure metering to preserve highlights lớn avoid exposure clipping.


Video Capabilities

The camera uses sharpness filtering, which causes moiré và artifacts during Clip recording, in certain scenes. However, in day to day shooting, this shouldn’t be enough lớn ruin the footage. It’s more of a note.

It lacks slow-motion video recording in 1080p, be it 60 fps or 1trăng tròn fps. If you desire slow motion, you will have sầu khổng lồ film at 720p HD khổng lồ vì so.

Autofocus Performance

Unfortunately, the autofocusing performance on this camera isn’t great. Now và again, the focusing speed slows dramatically, causing the camera to hunt và slows workflow. This slowdown was a problem that plagued the previous EOS M cameras as well. And, overall, the tốc độ và accuracy of focusing are inconsistent, even more so when the scenes are complex. Compared khổng lồ modern mirrorless cameras in this price range, the speed is quite slow. And the continuous autofocusing on this camera, in particular, is virtually unusable, so manual focusing for đoạn Clip is best. Thankfully the camera features focus peaking, so you can easily master this process. In short, while Canon has improved the autofocusing performance in this line, it still lags far behind the competition.

Battery Life

Battery life isn’t’ great. Canon rates it’s LP-E12 battery lớn deliver 255 shots per charge, which is far below the 350 shot industry-standard. Extra batteries are required.


Like other EOS M cameras, this camera also lacks an electronic viewfinder. Without a viewfinder, it means you will compose và navigate the camera solely with the rear screen alone. And sadly, since this camera lacks a hot shoe, users can’t connect an external viewfinder khổng lồ this camera either.


As the camera is quite compact, it will be uncomfortable to hold during prolonged shooting for those with larger hands as it’s grip is rather shallow.

The camera also lacks weather-sealing though we expect this as it’s an entry-level camera.

Lacking Features

Unlike the EOS M3, this camera lacks a hot shoe, which means users cannot add external flash units, microphones, or other accessories to lớn the camera.

It lacks a tai nghe input.

It lacks a microphone input. And sadly, when coupled with the missing hot shoe, it means users will have lớn use an external recorder & rely on syncing the audio in post for better audio capture.

The camera doesn’t offer ISO increments in ⅓ steps. Instead, it only provides full-stop incremental, which means adjusting exposure isn’t as precise when using ISO alone, a standard Canon limitation. Canon only offers this feature on their double-digit SLRs lượt thích the 70D or higher-end mirrorless cameras lượt thích the M5.

It doesn’t support USB charging.

The overall processing performance isn’t as responsive sầu as it should be. Start-up times are slow, as well as focusing and image capture. Overall, the camera is noticeably sluggish compared to the competition.

Currently, the EF-M lens lineup remains limited và lackluster, a problem faced by all EOS-M cameras up until this point. Even considering how much time has passed, Canon still neglects this lineup of lenses. As of today, only eight lenses are available, none of which are fast or exciting. Thankfully, as this particular camera is marketed at the entry-màn chơi segment, unlượt thích the EOS M3 and M5, the current lens selection is sufficient. But, Canon seriously needs to lớn devote more resources lớn the development of this lineup. For more lenses, the EF-M adapter is necessary.

Is this a good beginner camera?


It makes for an excellent beginner’s camera. However, it faces some rather fierce competition, even within Canon’s lineup, namely the EOS M50 & M100. Nevertheless, it remains a capable option for beginners looking for an easy lớn use và straightforward first camera.

Is this a good camera for you?


For those looking for a decent Clip camera or a hybrid shooter, know this camera is capable. However, you will have sầu lớn come to terms with the laông chồng of a microphone input đầu vào and missing hot shoe. Without these features, you only have sầu two options for audio capture. Either use the internal microphones or use an external recorder. Using an external recorder is the preferred option. However, it adds a layer of complexity lớn your workflow, và it isn’t igiảm giá khuyến mãi for beginners. Otherwise, this camera remains capable for the price.

In the end, Canon’s EOS M10 has a lot more in comtháng with the original EOS M, than their more advanced EOS M3. And while it shares a similar sensor và straightforward layout, it inherits several critical improvements from the pricier M3. In this case, its faster autofocusing system & wireless connectivity. And, in many respects, we can forgive sầu it for the missing viewfinder, hot shoe, & added physical controls, given its entry-cấp độ audience. While it may laông chồng any headline-grabbing or award-winning features, it remains capable as an all-rounder. And it makes the process of capturing high-quality images both fast & easy, making it ideally suited for the beginner audience the camera aims.

However, it’s autofocus remains behind the curve sầu in the mirrorless domain name. While Canon has improved over the years between the release of this camera, its improvements show only a modest gain. In short, if this is all you can afford right now, it’s more than capable. However, its successor, the newer M100, offers a better package for only slightly more và is the better camera. And by itself, the M10 is competent but isn’t quite as svào as the competition.
