Photato: Where is the iPhone superior to the M100?
1. Wider Color Gamut P3 vs sRGB
2. 4K video vs 1080P
3. Panorama function vs Nothing
4. Time Lapse uses all the iPhone sensor, M100 uses a mushi 1080P video.
5. Faster setup of custom WB
6. Live Photos are 12MP worth, M100 Live Photos are 720P video.
7. Video can be controlled and monitored from other iPhone or iPad, M100 doesn't has that functionality.
8. Longer battery life.
9. No need of separate charger, great for travel.
10. Bigger, brighter and higher resolution screen.
11. Next generation more efficient codecs fro Image and Video such HEIC and HEVC.
12. Built-in GPS
The list is longer but gonna leave it up to here.

I'm comparing apples to apples (no pun intended) which is; it's 1300 without any mobile phone lock in for it.

perhaps you should do the same. the fact remains, it's alot more expensive than a M100, it's meant to do things differently, so what? it's a tool. get over yourself and your perpetual whining. good grief.

I can easily blurr a EF-M lens because I know how to use a camera.

the same list could be made with ANY manufacturer's lowest end camera.

12. superior price. the iPhoneX is $1319 to $1599. The M100 is only $583.

To be fair, camera manufactures are starting to look at computational photography.

The 5D Mark IV's dual pixel raw format is the first venture into this as far as a mainstream ILC.

Gmon750: The M100 is leap and bounds better than the iPhone. Sadly, it won't matter to newbies and selfie-takers. The masking around the subject's hair is horrendous to say the least.

Sure, artificial Bokeh will improve, but for details like hair, it has a LONG way to go. This is a perfect example of analog (real lens, etc) being superior over digital.

Setting a custom WB on any EOS camera is a royal pain in the ars"

really? selecting White Balance from your custom menu, choosing a photo, clicking OK is really hard for you? I roll with a full spectrum camera, I change WB 10-20 times a shoot as i change filters. it takes 2 seconds to change if that. I don't even have to remove my eye from the viewfinder. You're lacking some fundamental brain skills if those three operations are too hard for you.

Perhaps an ILC is too much for you and you should stick to a full auto compact then.

All you are is complaining to complain - i doubt you even have the cameras.

Burnt to a Crisp: The iPhone X comes out ahead. The contour lighting shot has character that none of the flat Canon M100 shots do.

And the computational shallow DOF will only improve with time.

it sure has character, including a light bending affect around stationary objects.

One thing to note, this is very americanized. there's alot of people on this planet that will never be able to afford an iPhoneX or related top end smartphone because they are popping in at $1000 or more.

it's come along way, however if you view larger you can certainly see the computational flaws in the images from the iPhoneX.

however for instagram, snapchat, facebook, etc that probably will never matter because normal viewing is alot smaller.

Photato: The Canon M series has lots of potential but it is a boring camera because the crippled functionality. Canon doesn't need to do fancy software tricks to compete with phones, but just include basic functions that enable photographers to do more and do it faster.
This is hard to believe but in many Canon cameras it still remains impossible to take a properly focused selfie using the selftimer, camera locks focus at background before you get in the picture. Older Canon cameras had a useful Panorama Assist feature that is gone in newer models. The smartphone App can not be used when taking videos, the Live Photos from Apple has better quality than the Canon equivalent, shooting Burst with iPhone is much easier and fun cos it group pictures and let you select the best shot right in there. The M series lacks any Digital Zoom/Crop functionality despite having a whopping 24Mp sensor and the list goes on and on... None of this stuff requires Computational process but just common sense firmware.

oh cry harder why not.

RubberDials: These are the sales figures that matter:

FF mirrorless sales

Sony - 99.9%
Leica - 0.1%
Canon - 0%

poor RD, just can't handle it when his precious sony doesn't look as good as it does when he brushes off the specs of dust of his sony camera sitting up on the mantelpiece.

here's a news flash for you. if you have the ability to stay your invented stats are "important" anyone and everyone else has the same and equal rights to say, no, they aren't. if you don't like it snowflake, your safespot is the sony forums or SAR where you may have better luck.

Sony's full frame mirrorless stats aren't important because they compete in the same ecospace as full frame cameras from Pentax, Canon and Nikon, and when it really comes down to it.. less than 14% is the magic number for Sony when it comes to how well it fairs against it's competition, and no amount of fanboy weeping will change that. No matter how much you attempt to invent up statistics on the fly.

PVCdroid: This comes out every year and is completely irrelevant to whats going on in the industry and is filtered to get the incorrect results. Yea right, Canon mirrorless beats Sony.

I bet you didn't say the same thing when Sony was #1. Not to mention "is filtered to get the incorrect results." .. claiming fake news as well? sad!

Dan Wells: The fact that this is Japanese domestic market data is highly relevant, especially in mirrorless. The smallest viewfinderless mirrorless designs sell MUCH better in Japan than in the US and Europe. Thom Hogan (I believe) had a breakdown on this a few years ago. EOS-M had significant market share in Japan long before the newer designs with viewfinders appealed more to Western tastes, and the Olympus EP-L line (also lacking a viewfinder) sell well in Japan. I don't know what the ultra-compact mirrorless replaces? small DSLRs? Phone cameras? Fixed lens compacts don't sell well anywhere... My recollection is that higher-end mirrorless sells about as well as a percentage of camera sales in Japan as anywhere else, but that total mirrorless share is much higher, with the difference being made up by tiny, low-end viewfinderless models that barely sell in many other markets
I don't know if DSLR tastes vary much by country, so the rankings of DSLR makers could be similar to their global ranks?

Thom Hogan also prefers a Canon M5 over any of the Sony A6000 series camera bodies.

Tatouzou: Where are Panasonic M43 in the ILC mirrorless still cameras?

" but that's presumably stills/video hybrid cameras."

what are you talking about?

digital video has sony, panasonic and canon in third. that's not hybrid stills/video that's pure video. as in video camcorders,etc.

panther fan: So let's see how meaningfull those results are. In Japan According to the BCN Olympus lead mirrorless with 27.7% market share. Let's see the data published by olympus themself:
https://www.olympus-global.com/ir/data/brief/pdf/financial150PA.pdf
They expect for the fiscal year 2018 (ending march 31 2018) a shipment of 490000 ILC.
If you use the CIPA data from march to november 2017 and replace december to march with data from last year you end up with:
11.6% mirrorless market share and
4.1% ILC market share

So it seems that the market in japan doesn't correlate well with world wide shipping. Let's hope other companies will some day publish similar data.

@panther fan, read their speech summaries, they always break it down there.

canon does.. nikon does.. the only one that distorts their data is really sony .. the others are too small to really care about.

Peter 1745: In the mirrorless sector the % sold by the first 3 adds up to 69.2%.
This leaves 30.8% unaccounted for. Most of this will be Fuji and Panasonic sales.
Their sales must be fairly close to each other for each of them to be below Sony's 20.2% . I would guess each has a 15+-2% market share. I wouldn't like to say which has the larger sales.

they were last year on amazon.jp .. doesn't seem to be any left now though.

Jozef-S: I hope Sony and Olympus up their game. We need at least 4 companies for the more intense competition and innovation.

Sony "driving the entire digital imaging sector" also isn't reflected in their global marketshare of only 14%

LessMirrored19: 20% of Sony's 4500$ 3200$ 2000$ sales don't equal to 20% of canon's M5/M6 .... Misleading information

except sony is very active in japan with the A5000,A5100 and A6000 selling them off as discounts. so good theory, probably bad in practice.

ttran88: Sony needs to sell more low end gear like the Canon EOS M..

they sell the A5000 and A5100 for 52,000 and 57,000 yen respectively. A6000 for 57,000 yen

the canon m10 is 48,000 and m100 is 66,000.

seems like they are pretty much equal in that regard. the difference is 4,000 yen or around 44 USD between them.

In reply to:

evilmagicnut: I expect those percentages are percentage of units sold. I'd be interested to know what the Canon / Sony / Olympus mirrorless breakdown is when you start talking revenue.

Olympus sells older PENS for cents on the dollar, Sony's been basically giving away the A5100 for a while now

everyone does it in japan.
