Canon has launched the Canon EOS M100, its smallest mirrorless camera with Dual Pixel Autofocus. It features a 24.2MP sensor in a compact body and it has everything budding photographers will need.
In the body, it comes with a 24.2MP with Canon’s fast Dual Pixel Autofocus technology. Other features include 1080/60p video capture, built-in WiFi with NFC, Bluetooth and a fast 4fps burst shooting mode with Continuous Autofocus.
The body of the M100 is claimed to be the slimmest and lightest in the EOS M series at only 307 grams. It does not come with any viewfinder, but it does have a tilting 3.0-inch touch-screen display to help with operations and composition.
New users can always rely on the easy mode, or Creative Assist function as Canon is calling it. Through a set of user-selected menus, professional-like photos can be achieved with ease. Of course, thanks to the Canon EOS-M mount, the EF-M 15-45mm kit lens can be interchanged with other lenses from the EOS M lens, or with the EF-M Mount adapter, with the rest of the Canon lens line up.
Expect the Canon EOS M100 to arrive in stores by October for US$ 599.99 (approx. RM 2,349) for the body the EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens, or US$ 949.99 (about RM 4058) for the twin kit lens set featuring the kit lens and EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM lens.
