I needed a good camera to capture beautiful moments during my trip to Kyoto and Osaka and fortunately Canon was kind enough to loan me their EOS M10, the newest addition to the EOS M range of mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras.
Everyone who has used this camera or tried it knows that this camera can afford your some really superior image quality associated with a EOS DSLR while being just amazingly stylishly chic and light weight (approximately 301 grams) .
I used Canon EOS DSLR before, and finally gave to it my stepdaughter as it was just too heavy and cumbersome to bring
The EOS M10 is paired with the new compact EF-M15-45 mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens that promises and delivers high image quality in every shot. Equipped with a tilt type LCD touchscreen that extends to 180 degrees, the EOS M10 has an intuitive user interface that also enables selfies from different angles perfect for when the urge to take selfies hits me…
Being an older person, I am not so inclined to too many selfies… But I have to say the EOS M10 has some pretty amazing features that enhance image quality for taking creative and convenient self-portraits. When the LCD screen is angled to 180 degrees, a shortcut option to activate the self-portrait mode enables quick adjustments to parameters for taking the best selfies – brightness, smooth skin effect, background defocus, flash and self-timer. Just awesome since I have just so much pigmentation on my face… huhuhu
The EOS M10 is an easy to use lifestyle camera can be just as straightforward as your smartphone camera yet with the superior quality image of Canon’s latest DSLR technology …
The EOS M10 complements your lifestyle with Canon’s imaging technology to deliver superior quality images, which may be pretty hard to achieve with non-dedicated imaging devices.
Powered by the advanced Canon DIGIC 6, the processor handles images quietly at swift speed and ensures high speed processing with low power consumption. Paired with the 18.0 megapixel CMOS sensor, high-resolution and clarity in images will stand out. Even in dim lighting, the high ISO speed performance from 100 – 12800 on the EOS M10 will capture rich colours and details.
The enhanced Hybrid CMOS AF II system uses a combination of phase-difference detection AF and traditional Contrast AF for focusing and tracking subjects with precision. The EOS M10 uses an APS-C sized sensor, commonly used in the EOS DSLR range of cameras. The larger sensor size powerfully captures more light during exposure, ensuring higher image quality typically associated with DSLR cameras.
Wi-fi connectivity on the EOS M10 enables me to share my pics to social media platforms via online cloud storage, Canon iMAGE GATEWAY (CiG). After a one-time registration on CiG, users whose cameras are connected to any Wi-Fi service, may post their photos and videos directly to Facebook and YouTube, awesome for social media influencers right……
I am not to good at connecting this and well, since this was just a loan camera, I only utilize the NFC and Wi-Fi connectivity. This remote operation of the camera via a smartphone is pretty awesome. You can take a photo via remote control with the Camera Connect app, the EOS M10’s live view from the LCD screen is beamed to the smart device’s screen in real-time or well, download it to your smartphone…A variety of shooting modes, different aspect ratios, focus selection, self-timer and more can be adjusted – all from the smart phone while shooting superior quality images from the EOS M10. The remote shooting feature is ideal for taking group portraits or shooting at unusual angles, allowing easy control of the self-timer and shutter release.
The EOS M10 is offered in two versatile colours of black and white. I love the white camera.. Users can have fun expressing themselves through customisation of their camera with a selection of pretty jackets casing that comes range of striking colours such as a classic Navy, a sweet hue of Pink, and whimsical Aqua…
New EF-M15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens
The new EOS M10 features three lens kits, offering users more options and access into the world of EOS interchangeable lenses. All three kits feature the new EF-M15-45mm f/3.5 – 6.3 IS STM lens available in Graphite and Silver.
With a lens retraction mechanism, the EF-M15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM is the lightest, most portable, and compact standard EF-M zoom lens at just about 130 grams. With a focal length equivalent to 24mm – 72mm on a full frame, it produces high quality images favourable for travel, landscape, and even everyday moments. The Stepping Motor (STM) technology ensures silent and smooth AF especially during movie recording.
