Canon has presented the EOS R10 as the little engine that could, a 24MP entry-level APS-C mirrorless weekend warrior for users seeking a step up in control over a smartphone. At a price under $1000 with premium features borrowed from higher priced siblings, such as twin control dials on the top plate and tactile buttons on the body to adjust settings instead of scrolling through menus, it makes a strong argument too, but how well does the bite match the bark?

As we always do, we hit our studio scene testing to see how the EOS R10’s sensor behaved under controlled conditions. Compared to the EOS R7, the next step up in Canon’s RF mirrorless line, sharpness appears very similar in Raw at low ISO, but less at higher ISO. JPEG processing is very similar on both with only minute differences. See what you think in our comparison tool below. Are you seeing any major differences?

We’re also putting the EOS R10 through its paces in the real world to find out how mighty this little guy really is. A full review is in the works. In the meantime, please explore the studio scene tests, and then let us know in the comments what you'd love to know from our upcoming review.

Canon EOS R10 studio scene:

Our test scene is designed to simulate a variety of textures, colors and detail types you'll encounter in the real world. It also has two illumination modes, full even light and low directional light, to see the effect of different lighting conditions.
